Usually when I do these entries, I have at least a cursory knowledge of the character. I’ve read a few of his or her adventures, either back in my regular collecting days, or in various reprints I’ve picked up since then.
Then there’s today’s entry, the supremely screwy Wundarr the Aquarian.
For this first official update I’ve added issues that fall in the timeframe between Amazing Spider-Man 51 and Marvel Team-Up 4. The chronology notes are still pretty lightweight at this point as the bulk of the issues are Amazing. The introduction of Marvel Team-Up in 1972 is the first time that Spider-Man is appearing in more than one title a month. It adds some complexity, but the two titles are actually pretty tightly knit editorially, and the two series weave together nicely.
There are some spoilers if you’ve missed out on the last 50 years of Spider-Man and are just getting started.
I wrote last week in my unofficial “comic book character who died and sometimes got better” weekly column about Drax the Destoryer. I mentioned that Drax died in a place called “the Cancerverse” but didn’t go into great detail on what that was.
You know what? That storyline provides some good fodder for one of the few deaths Marvel Comics just will not reverse: Mar-vell, Kree captain and champion of the living and the original opponent to all things Thanos.
If you’re anything like me – pictures say a thousand words. Well….words also say a thousand words, but pictures are better because: PRETTY! And again, if you’re anything like me (which let’s face it, everyone is totally like me) then keeping up with all the Marvel movie rights will make your head explode. But never fear!

HULK SMASH TIME LOOP. Hulk smash Marvel Universe. Actually, Hulk smash nothing, since we’re about to reboot the entire Marvel Universe. Yep, you read that correctly… the whole Marvel Universe is about to be rebooted. System failure? Nope, this is not your standard reboot.
