How many of the Captain Marvels have we talked about? We've talked about Mar-Vell and Carol Danvers, but Monica Rambeau hasn't really come up that often, at least not as Captain Marvel.

With her being featured recently in WandaVision, we thought we'd take a look at her first appearance in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #16 and then the Captain Marvel one-shot from 1989.

And then it's finally time for Squadron Supreme #12! Final issue! Big fight! Lots of deaths!

Next Time: Captain America: The Winter Solider (Captain America 2004 #1-7)

Wedding bells are in the air!

We're going back to the mid-90's when Lois and Clark got married in the comics as well as on TV! We read Superman: The Wedding Album, a one-shot from 1996 which tells the whole story in a pretty self-contained issue.

We also get to some more questionable moral choices in Squadron Supreme #11 as we get really close to the end!

Next Time: Monica Rambeau's origins in Amazing Spider-Man Annual #16 and Captain Marvel (1989) #1
