It's been a while since we read something from the Marvel Graphic Novel series, so we're going back to read Emperor Doom, a story where Dr. Doom steals Purple Man's powers and takes over the world. 

Doom actually does a pretty good job, until the Avengers screw everything up.

It's really all Wonder Man's fault that world hunger is still a thing.

Then we move onto Earth X #5 in which Uatu continues to be very mean to X-51.

Next Time: The Superior Foes of Spider-Man #1-6

We love our Spider-Comics here at SOMFRC, but we've somehow never covered Spider-Girl at all, so today we took a look at the birth of Marvel's alternate future MC2 universe to see what it's all about.

Little did we know, we would become Spider-Girl Mayday Parker ourselves, and we would truly feel the relationship between her and her parents, MJ & Peter.

Then we go back to our other alternate future storyline with Earth X #4. Hope you like vibranium!

Next Time: Emperor Doom

Nov 1, 2023

It's only been about 10 years, but the Captain Marvel redesign of Carol Danvers has already become the most iconic version of the character.

With a new movie on the way, we're looking at the first volume of Kelly Sue DeConnick's run where the new image was introduced, titled In Pursuit of Flight.

It's not what we expected.

At all! 

Then we continue Earth X with issue #3 and... well... at least Spider-Man is in it.

Next Time: We got to the MC2 with Mayday Parker in What If #105 + Spider-Girl (1998) #1-5
