"These vampires aren't your typical vampires ... which sounds like a huge cliche, right? But they aren't pretty, or well-spoken or connected to the secret vampire covens or any of that crap. Hell, they're barely interested in being vampires. They don't even really know the rules!

They're just good simple people who want the same things we do. They want peace, and they want to be safe. And yeah, they want to drink beer and tell jokes."

In 1998, Roger Stern started a series simply called MARVEL UNIVERSE, that seemed to be a look into the secret history of the Marvel Universe. The first three issues showed the Invaders, one of the many origins of HYDRA, and Peter Parker's grandfather.

Yes, Peter Parker's grandfather.

The Young Justice TV tie in comic was fairly unique insamuch as it works in parallel with the broadcast series. Events from the series were referenced in it and even more unusually plot points from the TV series were revealed or expanded in the comic. (This is probably because the comic was written by Greg Weisman, also the story editor for the series itself and he believes in cross marketing)

Case in point a long time Batman villain who had a new origin, and one which ties into a rather unexpected character; The Daughter of the Demon herself;

They came to us thousands of years ago. Gods. Aliens. Refugees of a fallen civilization.

For centuries they ruled, intermingling with humanity. Creating generation after generation of daemons, faeries, and demigods.

The first generation of heroes and villains.

And then one day, something happened. Something terrible followed our rulers from their lost home world.

The Gods fell, defending the Earth. Their empire crumbled, and only the most remote spark of their seed survived within our species.

And they never told us what it was they were running from.

They never told us what it was that could frighten a god.

"I am always hesitant to lean into Superman too soon – in my mind, and I say it all the time, if Kal-El never landed on Earth, Kara would STILL become Supergirl. She would still learn from her experience coming to Earth and want to pay that forward on her own grand scale. So I want that to be more clear than ever." - Steve Orlando

Someone mentioned Benson in a post I was reading somewhere the other day. So I went digging.

At first I thought that show was a spinoff from Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, but digging further got the right show, Soap.

So I added that to the rotation of what Fay and I watch when we've run out of current episodes of things.

It worked great too. Benson was being Benson within the first five minutes of the first episode. As I expected, Fay loved it.

We wound up watching a second episode, and I'd forgotten that Jodi Dallas (Billy Crystal's character) was not only gay, but trans (at least a crossdresser if not TS). Heck, they even refferred to him as a TS.

Considering that it was a 40 year old comedy program, they actually handled it well.

Post-Secret Wars, my Marvel list has dropped down to Power man and Iron Fist (Cancelled), Hulk, Thor, Gwenpool and Hawkeye. They're all really good books, offering a different take on life in the Marvel world, and with strong authorial voices. New York based Private Investigator Jessica Jones has dropped by on LA based Private Investigator (but don't ask to see her licence) Kate Bishop.

Jess is on a case that links up with a skeevy guy Kate has been keeping tabs on. The trail takes them to a party where getting in isn't as easy as you might want.
Getting in to parties the Kate Bishop Way )
If, like Kate and Jessica, you think that shooting arrows would solve problems, but, unlike Kate and Jessica, you're in Great Britain and have nothing to do from the 16th to 18th of June, why not take part in Archery Big Weekend? There is almost certainly a club nearby that will be putting on a fun event for beginners.
