dear marvel

Here are six books I would make happen if I supplanted Axel Alonso at Marvel.

Tony Stark: Iron Man
Kelly Sue DeConnick & David Marquez

You asked for it and we answered – here’s an intense study of Tony Stark as he tinkers with his armor, banters with his A.I., and engineers a better filing system! Noted for its close attention to character continuity, this is the book that dares to put Tony’s demons to rest so he can finally get a good night’s sleep and I can stop worrying about him. Features a mysterious girlfriend who may or may not be a resurrected Rumiko Fujikawa and introduces Lila Rhodes as Tony’s protégé. James Rhodes appears in alternating issues!

Gambit and Storm vs. the World
Marjorie Liu & Kris Anka

In an effort to reconnect with an old friend, Ororo Munroe takes some time off from the X-Men to help Remy Lebeau with the start-up cat shelter he runs out of an abandoned Catholic church. When one of the cats goes missing, it’s up to Ororo, Remy, and guest-star Laura Kinney to track the feline to a sinister location… (Spoiler alert: the cat is unharmed!)

Captain Marvel Team-Up
Greg Rucka & Valerio Schiti

Carol Danvers is traveling the country to revisit her past and reclaim her lost memories – and it looks like she’s going to need some help! Watch as she works with Ms. Marvel, Wolverine, War Machine, Hulkling, and more to stop evil, do good, and break every speed record on the books. Did we mention that each issue ends with Carol splitting a tub of ice cream with her guest-star as they celebrate how great it feels to heal from emotional trauma? You better believe it!

Foggy Nelson, Avocado at Law
Mark Waid & Fiona Staples

Join Foggy Nelson, Marvel’s most decent attorney, as he takes on the biggest case of his life: convincing his best friend to listen to him! It’s an uphill battle, but someone’s gotta persuade Matt Murdock that his office doesn’t have to be at the bottom of an abandoned elevator shaft – and Foggy, armed with forgiveness, self-care packages, and the number of a good therapist, is just the guy to do it!

War Machine Rox
Ales Kot & Marcio Takara

Jim Rhodes, a.k.a. WAR MACHINE, is finally taking back the respect he deserves! This ground-breaking series challenges Rhodey to outfly and outgun Earth’s biggest threats while still making enough time to give the Young Avengers flight lessons and bake his niece a birthday cake. And is that the president asking Rhodey to put together his own hand-picked task force? You’ll find out in one of the next eighty issues!

Hawkeye Does America
Chelsea Cain & Annie Wu

Kate Bishop (Hawkeye, not Hawkguy) roams the country in her convertible while righting wrongs, sampling regional cocktails, and flirting aggressively with Miss America (Chavez, that is). Guest-stars Clint Barton (Hawkguy, not Hawkeye) and Pizza Dog in a sporadic backup feature where they call Kate for advice on how to complete basic household tasks!

I would read the hell out of them all, but especially Kate Bishop flirting with America Chavez.

Gambit and Storm vs. the World

I would read the ever loving heck out of this, and I haven't bought a comic in years.
