marvel isn’t even trying to hide it anymore like can these two just get married already
THOR SPOILER: Kate Beaton and I collaborated on this Marvel parody piece in 2011, for their Strange Tales series.
I’m not as good at doing Nick Gurewitch comics as Nick Gurewitch is, but it was fun to try! Marvel was always great with this series, they just wanted artists to have a laugh with their characters. Hope it comes back sometime.
I settled on a rock in Central Park, the New York skyline behind me. A glassy new skyscraper neared completion in its stretch toward the skies. I was striking a few poses in my superhero costume when a young boy perched higher on a rock chimed in.
“Captain America does not have a turban and beard,” he said. He had a child’s curious tone. No malevolence.
“Why not?” I asked him. “I was born here. We could have a new Captain America who is Sikh or black or Hispanic.”
He thought about this. Finally, he conceded that yes, maybe a black or Hispanic Captain America would be OK. But his brain couldn’t make sense of it: Captain America in a turban? Captain America in a beard? He’d never conceived of such a thing before.
That’s exactly what brought me to this park on a beautiful summer day. To make fresh neural connections in our collective consciousness. To leave a new image on the hard drive of that boy’s mind.

I’m hoping Marvel are building up to a punchline here where the poster for Captain America 2 will be Natasha looking fierce whilst Steve clings onto her.
*waits patiently for a drawing of that said image*
did I get the broken neck angle right?
SAVE ME SPACE MAN

Steve, Tony can’t handle all your sassiness.
