Women of Marvel by Mary H.K. ChoiOnce again I have been utterly disappointed by the portrayal of Marvel’s female characters. This graphic novel is a compilation of first issues; basically it’s an introduction to a bunch of D-list heroes. Unfortunately, half of the stories rely on humor (instead of having Lyra, Hulk’s daughter, bash in some Skrulls, we watch her try on prom dresses) and a third are cliche and generic, copies of male counterparts with boobs.
The worst of the worst has to be Galacta, teeny bopper daughter of Galactus. Not only is this premise stretched thin over way too many pages, but it is partly told through TWEETS, what? It was ridiculously annoying. Other wastes of time included Firestar, Dazzler, Spitfire, Songbird (I could not even get through), and the Cinderella parody with the Fantastic Four, I mean really come on!
The best hands down was the very first (x-23) this story has original artwork that was gritty and gripping, it actually made me want to read the rest of her series. I was also pleasantly surprised by Rescue’s story in which actual heroics occur! Also worth reading were the stories pertaining to Lady Deadpool, Namora, Sif (Beta Ray Bill makes an appearace!), Black Cat & Santana, and Valkyries wasnt too bad either.
Ultimately this collection felt like it was more about quantity than quality.
