Spotlight on... SQUIRREL GIRL!

In 1993, Marvel's House of Ideas created 27 new characters for each of their Annuals that year. In an interview, Mark Gruenwald specifically described how these fresh, new characters were meant to thrive in the Marvel Universe, unlike poor Squirrel Girl who was created three years prior and never heard from again.

Oh how the turns have tabled...Squirrel Girl recently finished a 58 issue ongoing series (with companion graphic novel) and -- outside the mild lasting success of Genis-Vell and Adam X -- the remaining 25 characters have hardly made 58 appearances COMBINED since 1993. Just goes to show how fickle and unpredictable success can be in comic books. Squirrel Girl spent time with the new Avengers of A.I.M. and as nanny to the daughter of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Her plucky optimism disguises a shrewd mind that has served her in beating major villains from Doctor Doom to Thanos. Today we celebrate the unlikely staying power of Doreen Green, the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl!

Spotlight on... BLACK KNIGHT!

In observance of the Eternals movie, today's Spotlight focuses on the all-too-human hero, the Black Knight. Harkening back to his brief and tumultuous relationship with Sersi in the 1990's, Dane Whitman is actually a legacy character descendant from the Black Knight of Marvel's Atlas Comics era of the 1950's, set in the Age of Camelot. Dane wielded the Ebony Blade of his ancestor Sir Percy, the original Black Knight, while trying to avoid the tarnished legacy of his uncle Nathan Garrett, a late Avengers villain and Master of Evil. A scientist with a magic sword, Black Knight struggled for years to master the blood curse of the Ebony Blade and its ramifications. For a time, he abandoned the cursed blade to redefine himself in the use of other swords and weapons. In recent years, however, the Black Knight has been defined again by his addiction to the Ebony Blade and the darkness within his own soul that it feeds upon. Still a (roughly) heroic figure, Dane continues his efforts to live up to the ideals of Camelot... if not the reality.

Spotlight On... SERSI!

Temptress. Sorceress. Party planner. Party goer. Lover. Eternal. In celebration of the release of Marvel's Eternals movie, we are proud to present our brand-new Spotlight on the glamorous Sersi! This Eternal has been many things in her long life. From a carefree member of the ancient race of Eternals who preferred to follow her own destiny rather than live by the rules of her people to a fierce and powerful member of the Avengers, serving during some of the team's darkest days. Sersi was never afraid to challenge the status-quo while also growing as a person. Sometimes seen as shallow, there is a lot more to this passionate woman than meets the eye. Just ask Captain America. Sersi loves Captain America. And the Black Knight. A lot. Oh, and she won't be afraid to kill you if she has to. Really. Read on to find out why!

Spotlight on... DARKHAWK!

The 1990's were in many ways the apex of Marvel Comics, and the comic book industry in general. Spider-Man and X-Men were selling millions of copies before the spectator bubble collapsed. The first half of the decade was flooded by guest appearances of popular characters like Wolverine, Venom, Punisher, and Ghost Rider. Still, like Athena emerging fully formed from the head of Zeus, Darkhawk is arguably one of the most 90's characters of all. An edgy vigilante with mysterious origins, Darkhawk certainly fit the times. However, with his secret identity as Chris Powell, he also had those classic Marvel tropes of a troubled young protagonist with a large supporting cast and ongoing subplots to keep readers coming back for more. A diamond in the rough, or a bunch of trite cliches tossed in a blender? You make the call with today's Spotlight on... Darkhawk!

Alien Races - The FOMORIANS

Easily one of the Avenger's stranger group of foes, the Fomor are an ancient race of evil gods from Celtic mythology. In their brief appearances they have fought not only the Avengers but Dr Strange, Iron Fist and the Thunderbolts. Read about the Fomor here.

Spotlight on... JUSTON & SENTINEL!

When a small town teenager found the Iron Giant... a giant mutant hunting Sentinel, he thought it was the answer to all of his problems. He was able to use his mechanical acumen to reprogram the machine into something that would help him and never abandon him. However, keeping a secret so big was bound to backfire, and Juston soon found himself training with the Avengers to ensure he could keep his new best friend. Not everyone could understand Juston's bond with the machine and perhaps his refusal to let go was ultimately his downfall. Read about the not so original tale of a boy and his giant robot... Juston and Sentinel!
