    This isn't exactly true— first issues always sell more than second issues, they come with lots of incentive variants. But it is true that there have been pretty strong reorders on the book. Diamond...

    A lot of the Marvel Now #1s have seen re-orders around Loki: Agent of Asgard, and March is where you'd expect the reorders of a February debut to show up. Ms. Marvel #1 got close to 7000 reorders in...

    I was going to say I didn't like this at all, but that's not true— I liked a lot of the art. I didn't like Danny at all. This is a guy who mentally dismisses a woman, sleeps with her anyway b/c of...

    I could understand Jessica's reluctance to go into space— in Infinity Natasha asked her if she was alright working with Skrulls, and while she got through it she did have some trouble, attacking the...

    Gene Colan will probably always be the essential Black Widow artist to me :)



    Well, part of it is that the mission is time-sensitive. A lot of the choices she makes seem to be because time is...

    I think so. Last time Secret Avengers relaunched it got into the top 10, with 80,000+ orders, like, 50,000 orders more than this relaunch around. Some of that is maybe the book being pitched a bit...

    I think the idea that Natasha's SHIELD files birthdate is a big lie is kind of contradicted by the way she's used in the plot. She's there to represent the "modern" ambiguities Steve is...

    They actually do consider things like gender and race when they're making these movies— it's naive to assume this is all based on finding good stories. It's marketing and demographics and budget,...

    Tigra was honestly set back as a character by her time as an Avenger. All that weird animal sex stuff, culminating in her being deevolved into an animal state and kept in a cage, pretty sad.

    I think her voice was a bit too light, for my tastes, and kind of disagree on the 70s/80s comment as well— especially since Natasha was written very differently in the 70s than in the 80s. I do...

    Yeah, the Marvel NOW #1 gimmick results in a huge boost for the first issue but a drop of about 40% for the second. It works well for new titles, or at least better than renumbering an old book did—...

    The bit about vengeance in particular is confusing to me. Who is she getting revenge on? Money is important insofar as it is Natasha's nominal motivation for taking on all these missions, but she...

    Yeah, the SSS/Infinity Formula thing should be super interesting to explore, given Bobbi's past as a SHIELD scientist working on similar formulas. But then they went somewhere completely different...

    Not a whole lot new from this interview, thanks to spoilers. I think the BW title has done a good job of putting pieces on the board and establishing a status quo, but I hope the upcoming issued do...

    The Age of Ultron What Ifs are exploring what would happen to continuity if one of the founding Avengers was missing, similar to how Wolverine killed Hank Pym in the Age of Ultron plot. #3 seems to...

    This was my interpretation as well. They aren't even officially "together"—*hence Rhodey's line about sneaking around, and Carol's about not being sure. There's obviously some emotion to it, but I...

    Of course her hair changes every movie, just like Steve's shield & costume changes every movie. They want to establish a new visual identity for each film, and also sell more action figures. It's...

    As people have mentioned, Name of the Rose (Black Widow #1-5) deals with the "secret children" question. It's also true that the chemical treatments that gave her the longevity also made her...

    It's also a bit silly to say a character who has the power to lie detect is overpowered in the Marvel Universe. This ability counters Loki nicely, but he's still stronger/faster/everything else,...

    Merchandising is really hard to tally, though. I mean, I'm not sure there is a perfect objective measure of this, and not sure it's even worth seeking out, but this figure-based approach is at least...

    Yeah, I think part of Black Widow is that she doesn't necessarily project that she can kick your ass. She has to be someone who can go undercover, she's not Wonder Woman. I think Johansson is fine,...

    Kamala's desire to be a pretty white blond girl who wears a swimsuit costume isn't presented uncritically by the narrative. She's a teenage girl who wants to be pretty and feels she has to become...
