Hello, my name is Adam and this is jackass I’m here to tell you about Faiza Hussain.

BACKGROUND:

Faiza is a doctor that works for the NHS in England who, during the Skrull Invasion event, is shot by a Skrull ray gun while trying to do her job and treat injured civilians. Instead of dying, Faiza gains a new superhuman power, which allows her to separate the human body by layer (muscles, nervous system, bones, etc.) and then heal her patient, who is awake but feels no pain. Her power allows her to not only completely heal wounds that would be mortal given enough time, but to also keep herself from dying as seen when (SPOILER) she and Dane Whitman fall from an exploding plane mid-flight and Faiza heals them just as they hit the ground.

I’m sure you’re thinking, wow, that sounds pretty awesome! Well you’re right, but it just keeps getting better!

Faiza, almost immediately after gaining this new power, becomes the wielder of Excalibur. Even though Merlin the wizard had already chosen his champion in Captain Britain, and even though there were other superheroes in the book - Pete Wisdom, Dane Whitman, Jacqueline Falsworth (Spitfire) - who had more experience, the great sword Excalibur chose Faiza. She goes on to use this sword to fight for her country and (SPOILER) even kill Dracula. 

BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE:

Now, don’t think that all of Faiza’s amazingness comes just from her powers and worthiness for famous magical swords. She was already a hero before she gained her powers, risking her life to treat injured civilians right smack in the middle of the Skrull invasion of England. Faiza is a character who is also kind of a foil for the reader, a fangirl of British superheroes who takes the time to observe, in the middle of a battlefield, that Captain Britain’s fight with the Skrulls is in his ‘top ten’. 

She’s someone just like you and me whose incredible strength and heart caused her to become one of the heroes she’d always admired. 

Oh, and did I mention she’s one of only a handful of Muslim superheroes in the Marvel universe?

WHY I LOVE HER: 

Faiza is an intelligent, charming, and lovable woman. I love reading about her because she feels like such an intelligent, relatable person, who then goes on to prove herself as one of the most apt and powerful superheroes Britain has to offer. She’s caring and interesting, and (as far as I know) the book never makes any harmful assumptions about her because she’s a Muslim, which is a breath of fresh air when you live (as I do in America) in a place where Islamic peoples are stereotyped and prejudiced against. Her parents are also wonderful and fun to read. 

Watching her grow whole-heartedly into her new responsibilities as a superhero and protector of England really sold the Captain Britain and MI13 series for me. She’s an incredible character and woman and Marvel could certainly use more like her!

WHAT TO DO NOW:

I understand what you must be thinking. “There’s no way such an amazing character can exist!” you gasp, indignant. “There must be some sort of catch!” Well, you’d be kind of right. The catch with Faiza is that she’s not in a lot of stuff at the moment. I’m hoping that Marvel realizes how awesome British superheroes are and makes a follow-up MI:13 series (along with another Alpha Flight volume, but that’s another topic entirely), but until then, here’s where you can find Faiza:

  • Captain Britain and MI13, issues 1-15
  • Captain Britain and MI13 Annual #1
  • the new Gambit series, issues 6 and 7
  • Age of Heroes #1

Faiza only really makes cameos in the latter two, but it’s still worth reading to see her in action, especially because of just how amazing she is as a character and a person. 

And stay tuned, because I’m also going to be the one talking about the series Captain Britain and MI13 and providing links to the issues. Once you’ve read it and realized how amazing it is, go out and buy it! Support Faiza and her friends and show Marvel how much you DO love British superheroes, so maybe we’ll get more on these characters!

Character Intro Post: Doctor Stephen Strange (The Sorcerer Supreme)

Hold up guys! 

Let me talk to you some more about a doofus named Stephen Strange real quick. 

If you’re unfamiliar with him you might want perk your eyeballs up because this guy could very well be the next big character in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  And he’s got some great stories to tell.

Origin: Don’t let his bad taste in attire and love for the dramatic fool you, this guy wasn’t always the kooky magic dude living in the Village. 

Born in Philadelphia, raised in Nebraska, Stephen Strange turned toward medicine at a young age. He followed that passion and eventually became one of the world’s top surgeons.  Success made him arrogant and greedy and so he worked more for money instead of the desire to help those in need.  Until one horrible car accident left his hands mangled and scarred, the nerves forever injured. 

Unable to perform delicate surgeries anymore, Stephen searched for a way to fix his hands in order to return to the life of professional and material success.  This trek led him to the Ancient One, a master of the mystic arts and Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme at the time.  Stephen became the Ancient One’s student after he experienced magic first hand in an encounter with the villain Mordo.  Eventually, Stephen became Master of the Mystic Arts and upon his master’s death fighting Shuma-Gorath, he ascended to the role of Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme, thus leaving behind his old life and following a new path.

Sorcerer Supreme.  What’s that?: It’s a title given to the sorcerer/sorceress who possesses great magical ability and strength and is tasked as the protector of Earth to keep it safe from other dimensional beings and magical entities.  The Sorcerer Supreme is given many magical artifacts that are passed down to the next in line.  Such as the powerful Eye of Agamotto and the Cloak of Levitation.  The knowledge, dedication and work required to obtain this title means Stephen has achieved a level of power matched by very few.  He is arguably one of the most powerful humans in the Marvel universe.

Powers: Flying/Levitation (via the Cloak of Levitation and various spells), Teleportation, Astral Projection (Watch out he could be watching you right now), Illusions, Memory Manipulation/Erasure, Time Travel, Dimensional Travel, Healing (both magical and medicinal), Various offensive and defensive spells that provide a variety of options in battle, training in hand to hand combat, Power of Bad Life Choices, an uncanny ability to attract tentacle monsters to his location at any given time.

Random Snippets:

  • Once trained Doctor Doom in the Mystic Arts
  • Witnessed the Earth’s destruction and then original (re)creation.
  • Married to Clea, Master of the Mystic Arts and the once maybe current Ruler of the Dark Dimension and Stephen’s former disciple. (she’s totally rad and he’s putty in her hand)
  • Apparently is not currently in possession of his soul.
  • Let the New Avengers hang out in his home during the aftermath of Civil War. What a nice dude.
  • Sometimes sleeps in the nude and levitates in his sleep.

  • Faced Death and lived, accepting that all things will die, but in the process gained the Ankh, which sometimes lights up on his forehead when death is near.  Doctor Strange no longer ages and conceivably will never age and die but can only be killed through an outside source.
  • That makes him pretty old, though this doesn’t show physically.
  • Once spent thousands of years fighting in the War of the Seven Spheres, a war fought by the immensely powerful beings that Stephen calls upon to grant him certain magical spells and abilities. 
  • Most notably, The Vishanti.  Three immortal beings that grant magical boons to those they deem worthy.  Agamotto The All-Seeing, Omnipotent Oshtur, and Hoggoth.
  • Agamotto likes to take the form of a caterpillar and fuck with Stephen’s life.
  • Is an actual cutie pie.

  • Once spent a day as a rat because his body had been possessed.
  • Lost his left eye in battle and was eventually gifted a new one.
  • One of the founders of the Defenders.  Usually the “leader” of the team.

Notable Adversaries: Nightmare, Dormammu and Umar of the Dark Dimension, Baron Mordo,  Shuma-Gorath, Mephisto. 

Other Media: Check out the 2007 Cartoon Movie - Doctor Strange - This works very well as an introduction to the character even though there are a good number of changes when compared to the source material. (Could possibly still be available on Netflix!)

Masterpost: A bunch of Doctor Strange runs and books

Now go read Doctor Strange and love him forevers.  May the Vishanti smile upon you!

LOKI LAUFEYSON  UNIVERSES AND FORMS [5/10]

UNIVERSES:

Earth-616, Earth-691, Earth-774, Earth-904, Earth-982, Earth-1027, Earth-1298, Earth-1610 (Ultimates), Earth-3515, Earth-9260, Earth-9997 (Earth X), Earth-10280, Earth-11080 (Avengers Vs. the Marvel Universe), Earth-20051, Earth-21119, Earth-57780, Earth-70105, Earth-81225, Earth-83600, Earth-88234, Earth-91126, Earth-94001, Earth-99062, Earth-807128 (Old Man Logan), Earth-841047, Earth-12591, Earth-199999 (MCU), Tales of Asgard

SIGNIFICANT FORMS:

JOTUN: As Loki was born a frost giant, he was born with a Jotun form. Thus, he is capable of shifting to his natural Jotun state, but he prefers the Aesir one out of an abhorrence for the Jotun race. 

LADY: Loki once wore Sif’s body, and this version of him is commonly referred to as “Lady Loki,” though he still went by male pronouns during the shift. He was capable of leaving the form whenever it pleased him, but continued to wear it until it no longer suited his schemes. He even urged Thor and Donald Blake to make their goodbyes to Sif as she faced death through the expiration of her mortal host.

FEMALE: Loki is capable of shifting into a female form reminiscent of his own face and body without adapting the body of another. He can be seen sporting this in Thor and the Warriors Four, when he disguises himself as a mortal nurse–a disguise he has used more than once.

KID: When Loki was resurrected in the form of a French boy named Serrure, Thor found him and returned him to his Asgardian child form. Currently, Loki still wears this body, though the soul that originally inhabited it has been killed.

IKOL: While his younger, reincarnated self wore his body, the original Loki’s spirit inhabited that of a magpie that followed Kid Loki about. However it has been questioned if this magpie even existed, and that it may have been merely a part of Kid Loki’s imagination, a mechanism that he used to cope for the part of Elder Loki inhabiting his mind.

MCU: A slimmer, less-muscled version of Loki than his comic counterpart, though no less dangerous. MCU Loki has proven just as mentally unstable and competent at intricate planning through his alliance with and trickery of Thanos, as well his initial crimes in the 2011 film. He has also been shown to be as cold and callous towards mortals, and any being not himself, as his comic counterpart. This Loki, however, had an easier childhood and a more loving family, as it was not only Thor who loved Loki; Frigga and Odin both demonstrated a care for Loki that they were not inclined to in the comics. As such, he is just as, if not more, obsessive with Thor and revenge than he is in the 616 continuity.

↳ ultimates character bios : 06/06 : Anthony Stark aka Iron Man

  • debuted in Ultimate Marvel Team-Up #4 (2001)
  • created by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Allred

bio

Tony Stark’s motivation in building his Iron Man suit is a very different one from his 616 counterpart. In 616 and the cinematic universe, Tony was forced by circumstance to build his suit in order to escape his captors and suffers from a heart defect. 1610 Tony was driven to create the Iron Man suit and become a hero by the fact that he has an inoperable brain tumor. With the notice that he has anywhere from 6 months to 5 years left to live, Tony begins to devote more of his time to charity and heroic efforts. When SHIELD forms the Ultimates, Tony volunteers his services. 

Tony’s personality varies from his 616 counterpart in several significant ways. During his first few missions with the Ultimates, Tony expresses self-doubt and remains unsure of himself and his abilities. While still a shrewd businessman and brilliant inventor and engineer, Tony is shown to be more empathetic and outwardly emotional. His greatest fear (revealed in Spider-Men) is the death of his teammates, whom he has formed a deep friendship, despite the fact that most of them do not take him seriously due to his alcoholism and womanizing.

Although Tony’s origins were explored in the Orson Scott Card mini series Ultimate Iron Man (2005), this was retconned out of continuity. Tony is revealed to have a twin brother, Gregory, who is older than him by twenty minutes and explained by Nick Fury as being completely amoral in comparison to Tony and ten times as smart. Tony’s relationship with his brother is shown as being strained, and eventually Gregory turns against the Ultimates and they are forced to kill him. Tony’s relationship with his father was also explored in the lates Iron Man mini by Nathan Edmondson, and he is shown to have gained a better understanding of his father’s actions.

Although Tony’s brain tumor is still present and inoperable, he has recently reached a compromise with it. The tumor actually gained sentience, in part due to the nanotechnology present in Tony’s body.

Part 1 of 
Tumblr Marvelcon Character Into - Anthony “Tony” Edward Stark - Iron Man

 

“I went from being a man trapped in an iron suit to being a man freed by it”


Who doesn’t know Tony Stark and his bodyguard not so secret anymore superhero alias Iron Man? His first appearance in Tales of Suspense #39 by Stan Lee, Don Heck, Jack Kirby and Larry Lieber introduced us to the millionaire, playboy, weapons maker Anthony “Tony” Stark, who was captured and forced by the Vietnamese to build a weapon for them to battle the American forces. With the help of Ho Yinsen, a prisoner and brilliant physicist, Tony managed to save himself from the shrapnel close to his heart that affected him in an earlier explosion before his capture by building an arc reactor. With Yinsen’s help he built his first armoured suit and escaped, adopting the identity of Iron Man and becoming a superhero. With the creation of the superhero team “The Avengers” with Iron Man as their first leader, Tony Stark started a new life that leaded him to meet many new acquaintances, have many adventures and misadventures, both happy and sad memories, but most of all, gave him the chance to become something else: The Armoured Avenger.  

The Marvel site itself has long articles coming out weekly (which have yet to finish) that go through Tony’s entire history and cover huge chunks of his adventures. You can start reading from right here

  • Why do I like Tony Stark?

Tony Stark is many things; a genius, a billionaire, a friend, a superhero, an Avenger. Those are only some of his attributes that make him who he really is, a character so loveable and appreciated by so many of us. It’s funny to think that he was originally created in order to contrast Spider Man and the fact that he was so easily relatable to the comic book readers, and as opposed to the troubled teenager, Tony was a rich, successful businessman who could have anything he wished. But as years passed and comic books advanced, Tony because much more than a pretty, charming face. He became a symbol, a hero, a man with heavy burdens and problems that made people empathise with him. That is one of the reasons that I adore Tony; his ability to always stand up, to be beaten down so often and get back to his feet, to sacrifice himself and his personal desires for ‘the greater good’ is a clear hero quality.

The armoured hero is constantly battling many things; his addiction to alcohol, his company’s enemies, superhero villains, his own past, guilts and demons. One would expect that a rich pretty boy wouldn’t have any problems, but he did have a not so pleasant childhood with a father like Howard Stark constantly bringing him down, hostile take overs of his company, many problems in his relationships and many more. He made many bad decisions that not only got the people he cared about killed, but he broke any trust he shared with his friends, making him seem cold and ruthless to some. Tony Stark and Iron Man are too different personas. You have Iron Man, the Golden Avenger, the superhero, the Invincible Iron Man who is untouchable in his hard, protective armour, and then there’s Tony Stark, the strong businessman, the suave man who can charm his way everywhere. But beneath those all, Tony Stark has a deep, human level, a curious and creative personality and a big heart. He’s basically a deep layered character who can appeal to many for countless reasons and for different aspects of such a great personality.

  • Fun Facts about Tony

-Tony Stark is a lover of anything medieval and as a child he had a fascinations with knights, King Arthur and his tales.

-His suit’s original gray colour seemed to frighten the crowd, hence why he painted it gold, before moving to his trademark red and gold look that everyone is familiar with on our days.

-His surname “Stark” means “strong” in German. Says a lot about Tony’s strong personality, doesn’t it?

-According to himself, he has 7 PHDs.

-Tony Stark was trained into combat by Captain America himself.

-He was one of the heroes that designed and built the infamous S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier. In addition to that, he redesigned the Quinjet, gave Hawkeye more technologically advanced arrows and built a replacement shield for Captain America.

-Tony has a Captain America tribute room in Stark Tower.

-When Ultron comes back yet again, he interferes with Iron Man’s suit and turns him into a new, female, Ultron (which looks like the Wasp,blame it on Ultron being kinky). Don’t worry, the first thing that Tony does when he switches back is to check if “everything down there” is back.

-He once showed up at a Halloween Party dressed up as Captain America (and mistaken the real Doctor Doom for a costumer).

When Tony was sent off to boarding school at the age of 7, he realised how difficult was to make proper connections with people. Thus, his fascination with machines came to the surface, and later he graduated from MIT after studying physics and engineering. It wasn’t rare that people called Tony a machine and pleaded him to stop thinking like one, especially after he was injected with the Extremis virus . Tony has been been building suits and different bots for so long, going as far as naming them and having actual conversations with them. Even after suffering and being tortured in the hands on his own suit that became sentient, in the very end, Tony showed compassion for his creation when it was about to ‘die’, after it gave its life to save Tony’s. His fascination with technology is always visible, with Tony spending time around machines, always working on a new project, even claiming “how sexual a piece of technology can be”. He often refers to his creations and armours as his “babies”, proud of his work and the friends he made himself.

WOMEN OF MARVEL [1/13] Eva Bell // Tempus

“I love [Captain America] because I tried to imagine myself being frozen in a block of ice for so long that all of my family and friends died of old age and then someone woke me up. I don’t think I would handle it well. I think I would freak out. And I think the fact that Captain America doesn’t freak out is pretty amazing. I wish we had a super hero that awesome that represented Australia. I wish we had a super hero from Australia that wasn’t kangaroo-themed. That seems pretty lazy. If I ever grow up and get super-powers I will try very hard to be like Captain America except Australian.”

ORIGIN: new mutant post-Phoenix dispersion

POWERS: chronokinesis–control over space and time; the ability to freze time in a specific place

CITIZENSHIP: Australian

ALIGNMENT: good

AFFILIATION: X-Men (Extinction Team)

UNIVERSE(S): Earth-616 

FIRST APPEARANCE: All-New X-Men #1

CURRENT TITLES: All-New X-Men, Uncanny X-Men

RECOMMENDED READING: All-New X-Men, Uncanny X-Men

BIO: As a new mutant, Eva struggles with mastering her powers. Out of all the new mutants so far introduced, we’ve seen the most of her family; her brother was presented along with her, as her powers manifested themselves in order to stop him from fighting a boy she had a crush on. Big names like Magneto, Magik, and Emma Frost think that she has huge potential, as her power is a strong one. However, her mom has been shown struggling with her daughter’s newfound mutant identity, much to Eva’s dismay. She has no desire to hurt anyone– she only wants equality for mutants.

Tumblr Marvelcon Character Intro - Anthony Edward Stark (pt 4)

Cartoon Intros: One of my favourite things ever, were the intros of the cartoons, and I loved the cartoons itself. They were what introduced me to Tony as a kid, so here’s some appreciation for them. 

The Women of Tony Stark:

He has a big heart (of steel) which can often be his downfall. Particularly with his love life history.

Rocket Raccoon in: Guardians of the Galaxy inifinte #2

just thought I’d post a photoset of this little shitRocket Raccoon for Tumblr Marvelcon to bide my time until I can post my category (which is comixology btw) on Sunday 

Man the first day was the best and the information that I’ve learnt about some of the characters are amazing and I can’t wait to learn more and jokes and awww sugoi. 

Tumblr Marvelcon Character Introduction Post: Doctor Hank Pym!

So let’s open this little character presentation with one very clear point in mind; I love Doctor Henry Jonathan Pym with all my heart. I think he is a very underappreciated and underloved character, but I am writing this not just for myself, but for the fans I know he has out there!

But as I said before, I can’t assume you’re all fans. Again; underused, underloved. So let’s start with the basics! This profile isn’t meant to be all-encompassing; there’s a lot in almost sixty years of existing that I can’t cover. This is largely just about Hank himself, his powers, and what’s gone on since he appeared as a character in Tales to Astonish. 

That said, let’s begin!

Under a readmore though, because I wrote a lot. But I put in pictures, so it’s all good!

Tumblr Marvelcon Character Intro - Anthony Edward Stark (pt 3)

“Here you have this character, who on the outside is invulnerable, I mean, just can’t be touched, but inside is this wounded figure. Stan made it very much an in-your face wound, you know, his heart was broken, literally broken.” - Gerry Conway


Why I like Tony:

  • Tony Stark is a spectacular character, and one of the most attractive to me. But that’s the shallow part, so asides from his amazing physique and those amazing blue eyes of his, the reason that I love him is that to me, he is relatable.
  • Addiction is a common ‘disease’ amongst many people, and Tony’s battles with such make me empathise with him more as a character. He is strong, but has moments of weakness which are made clear in arcs such as demon in a bottle, and passing references in recent arcs too, including Deadpool (where Wade had met Tony and they both emptied bottles out, making Tony feel much better [which was the most adorable thing ever]).

    Addiction is never easy, and Tony makes that clear by the way he has to face this battle almost every day of his life. Even heroes have weaknesses, and Tony makes his clear.
  • He’s a business person too, and keeps his company in mind in a lot of things that he does. Being that smart, having business acumen and applying it to his everyday life is something that I admire. He tends to walk around with this slick, suave, big-cheese style manner that just resonates cool.  He’s got a huge history which makes him super complicated, but that only wants to make me learn more and more about him.
  • Overall there are many reasons I adore him as a character, many reasons I can’t actually put into words, I just think he’s relatable, I enjoy reading his arcs, I love the tech and he’s amazingly smart and inspirational.
  • Rather than regurgitate another well known origin story of Tony, which I guess most of you probably know (and which is questionably and controversially being revamped in the recent Marvel Now series), I’m going to reel off a couple of things you may not know or might need refreshing on.

CHARACTER INTRO - DEADPOOL
Post 5/5 Comic Rec

Comic isn’t my assigned field but I’d like to recommend this one-shot series of four issues - Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe. It is literally what it says: Deadpool kills the Marvel universe.

The fourth wall breaks down to sand and dust. Due to mental shenanigans, Deadpool snaps and decides that he will no longer swallow the fact that fictional characters are mere puppets of the writers. He takes the matter into his own hands and start killing everyone to supposedly put them out of their misery - Fantastic Four, Spiderman, Avengers, X-Men…

Despite it being only an alternative universe, there is still a thrill with seeing ALL your favourite characters dying and how that happens. At the end of the series, Deadpool arrives at the office of Marvel writers to complain. Hilarity ensured.

Susan Storm - 1610 (Ultimate) Universe

Sue Storm was born to Dr. Franklin Storm and Dr. Mary Storm. She also has a younger brother, Johnny.

That’s sexist, mom.

Like her scientist parents before her, Sue showed her brilliance at a young age, creating a rocket with a sugar engine at age 8 that damaged the family car. Her mother died when she and Johnny were still young (or did she) and Sue stepped up to help care for her younger brother.

When we meet Sue she is living in the Baxter Building, a government think tank and school for gifted young people run by her father.

When they meet Sue is an intellectual match to Reed Richards, though she finds through the course of her studies that her area of expertise is biology and “inner space”. Still, she generally has little trouble keeping up with Reed and they encourage each other in their studies and work together when the task is appropriate. 

She and Reed and Victor Van Damme work together on Reed’s inter-dimensional portal. Victor secretly changes the calculations on the machine, and as a result he, Sue, Johnny, Reed, and Ben Grimm are caught in the portal. 

They are tossed through the N-Zone and come out all over the world. Susan ends up in Las Vegas but is kidnapped by their old teacher, Dr. Molevic, before she wakes. 

The accident transforms Sue’s physiology so that she is able to make herself invisible. She can also create force fields at will, as shown below.

Sue can also fly, and lift and carry others in her fields.

Sue really shines throughout this series. She is the most stable and practical member of the team, and keeps Reed in check as best she can. She struggles sometimes to understand him, and they mis-communicate a fair amount. He tends to ignore her (and everyone) in favor of his work, and later in the series actively pushes her away because he is so caught up in his project. Eventually she tires of being ignored/neglected and ends the relationship. 

Sue is fearless and inventive in battle. While many consider her powers to be defensive, in this universe she uses her force fields very offensively. She uses them to bludgeon, entrap, and slice her enemies. She’s also used her powers to blind her enemies (turned their optic nerves invisible), suffocate them, and killed Marvel Zombie universe Reed by putting a field in his brain and popping it. 

During Ultimatum and in Ultimate Doomsday we see Sue and Ben becoming close. They are currently engaged.

Sue has recently made appearances in Ultimate Comics: The Ultimates. She is also shown in upcoming previews so keep reading for more Sue!

Loki once claimed to be his father.

Deadpool has a distinct voice, making his font mangled and text box yellow. It’s been described as having a “gravelly, Demi Moore” quality and sounding like “gasoline and gravel.”

Deadpool’s worse fear is being truly and utterly alone.

Deadpool is scared of cows.
