Told you guys Blues might have a hero cameoing. And here he is; the greatest hero of them all!

Yeah, we were kicking this around for the chapter and was naturally very excited. Love any excuse to get a crossover going between the two comics. It was unsure if we were gonna go forward on it (a cameo like this demands a few pages devoted to it), but was very excited when I got this script with the enormous build-up.

Weird thing about Marvelous Man is I think he's one of the few characters to have the traditional superhero build of "muscles upon muscles" like Charles Atlas. Alex is a big guy but even he's not stupid-wide like Marvelous Man is... Between this and how scrawny Hazel is, seeing them together is really mind-boggling. I think Marshalls is floating a little bit and Hazel isn't THAT short, but in terms of width... Yeah, wow. I might've overdone it on making this guy bulky.

So first off, this was foreshadowed.


Two bits there, namely Power saying 'wonderful' isn't quite the right word - because it isn't, but 'marvelous' certainly is - and her saying Alex might miss it if he doesn't keep his chin up, i.e. he'd have to look at the sky to see Marvelous Man flying in. Latter probably would've been more clear as scripted with Power turning his head up while saying it, but eh. I was kind of worried it might've been too on-the-nose anyway.

Probably should explain then what we're looking at in case you don't read Blues. That's Marvelous Man, who's sort of the hot new sensation with tons of powers, and also the only adult blue blood as far as the general populace is concerned. He's been referenced before in WaR, but mostly in fairly minor ways. He isn't just here for advertising, his role is furthering the story of the chapter in a few ways and in a capacity where he's really the most appropriate person for the job.

So what exactly is Marvelous Man here for? You'll need to keep reading for that, but maybe you'll get an answer come Friday.

Hm. Disappointing... I guess you'll see it when you see it, then.... Lemme know if you have to give the account up forever, I'll think of something else.
