Redhead Fangirl

Thursday, February 15

Post V day


A day late, but still one thing that made me happy for Valentines Day. Atom Eve and Invincible at the end of a sweet scene, where he flies to Africa to see her, she comforts him about his mom, and he stammers a word or two until they just kiss. What will happen with girlfriend Amber? I mean, he has powers and he's getting run down by her little college friends. With obvious bias, I think in this series it's exactly like Spider-Man-- the writer wanted us to like the blonde, but the redhead has much more personality and depth and the fans like her more. So go, Eve, get you some!

Make sure you didn't miss the V cards at Polite Dissent

Hope you all had a good V Day (even with an ice storm here, mine was good). One week until the NY comicon-- it's hard to think of all the artists and writers and the daily adds of guests.

I'm not at this point yet, since I'm reading Invincible in trades and am only as far as Vol. 6, but yeah, it's hard to argue with this point. There's not much wrong with Amber, per se, it's just that she's not Eve.

I subscribe to Google alerts and recently came across your blog, so I thought I would contact you about an event my redhead friends and I host each year – called the Redhead Luncheon. I wanted to invite you as my guest if you are in town during that time. We are a fun, energetic group of mostly women (and a few good men) who just love being redheads, as it appears you do as well.

The invitation is below. Please feel free to pass it on to any redheads you know that may be interested.

Wishing you a terrific day… and then some.

You should read the Sherlock Holmes story "The Red-Headed League" before responding to this offer. It looks eerily familiar...

Bill, sorry if this is a spoiler for you, the issue had been out a few weeks.
ramessesix- sounds like an excellent SH story; and could be code for getting someone out of the picture. "They need to join the redheaded league"

"... the writer wanted us to like the blonde, but the redhead has much more personality and depth and the fans like her more ..."

Wrong-o ... Some fans were furious over Gwen's death. Gerry Conway (the writer of Amazing Spider-Man #121/122) even remarked in a CBG interview (years ago) that he actually receieved some death threats for months afterward. After Gwen was ushered off to the afterlife, various writers started developing MJ's background — THEN she had depth.

No worries about spoilerdom! I kinda figured this would be on the horizon eventually, and it's something I've been hoping to see in the book, anyway. Plus, I'm behind, and as you said, the book's been out for over a month, anyway. ^_^

Rich, post-Gwen, yes MJ has had many more storylines, but even Marvel supports the view that the fans liked MJ "According to Stan Lee, Mary Jane was originally intended to be simply a rival for Gwen Stacy for the affections of Peter Parker. Lee had always intended for Gwen Stacy to be Spider-Man's one true love, but fans vocally supported the feisty Mary Jane over the non-offensive Gwen Stacy. "
