MARVEL ALL-COLOUR COMICS: Ms. Marvel #2 Feb 1977 - from the Silver Age of Comics

£29.99

Product description

Marvel All-Colour Comics' Ms. Marvel features the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was originally conceived as a female counterpart to Captain Marvel. Like Captain Marvel, most of the bearers of the Ms. Marvel title gain their powers through Kree technology or genetics. Marvel has published four ongoing comic series titled Ms. Marvel, with the first two starring Carol Danvers and the third and fourth starring Kamala Khan.

Carol Danvers, the first character to use the moniker Ms. Marvel, first appeared in Marvel Super-Heroes #13 (March 1968) as a non-super-powered officer in the United States Air Force. After being caught in an explosion with the Kree superhero Captain Marvel in Captain Marvel #18 (November 1969), Danvers resurfaces in Ms. Marvel #1 (January 1977) with super powers as result of the explosion which caused her DNA to merge with Captain Marvel's. As Ms. Marvel, Danvers becomes a mainstay of the superhero team The Avengers, beginning in The Avengers #171 (May 1978). Danvers goes on to use the code-names Binary and Warbird. In July 2012, Danvers assumes the mantle Captain Marvel in honour of its dead, original holder, Mar-Vell, after Captain America tells her that Mar-Vell would want her to have it.

Cover pencils by John Buscema, inks by Dick Giordano. Enigma of Fear!, script by Gerry Conway, pencils by John Buscema (breakdowns) and Joe Sinnott (finished art), inks by Joe Sinnott; Kerwin becomes the Destructor and promises to take down Ms. Marvel for AIM; Scorpion escapes from AIM's clutches; Carol, freaked out by her blackouts and lack of memory, visits her friend Barnett who discovers she is Ms. Marvel during a hypnotic session but fails to tell her; Ms. Marvel takes on Scorpion and Destructor. Ink Stains on Virgin Paper article by David Anthony Kraft; Origin of Ms. Marvel revealed; Mary Jane cameo. Ad for Ricochet Racers featuring Spider-Man and Captain America on last page.

In good condition considering its age, dating from the Bronze Age of comics during the seventies, with no tears to stapled spine, corners and bottom front edge with some wear expected with age. It's published with the British price of 25p overlaid on a small sticker rather than in original cheaper 10p, it is however internally very good, with no annotation or coupon removals. This comic book comes with a bag and board for its protection.
