Over two issues, Marvel publishes two inventory stories originally intended for Ms. Marvel’s solo series from way back in the ‘70s. And they know how anxiously you’ve been waiting for it because they put it on the cover. Claremont gets plotting credit because he created the story during his original run.
Technically, these are two individual stories (and should have individual posts) but since they’re both inventory tales from the ’70s, I’m putting them up in one write-up. Also, both involve Mystique’s effort to align Carol Danvers with her Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. But the second story has her as Binary, not Ms. Marvel.
Issue #10 starts with a training session in Avengers Mansion.
Then she fights Sabretooth.
In a subway tunnel.
It’s good. Iron Man helps.
Issue #11 has her against the Brotherhood. Lots of great battles.
It starts with her foiling Donald Pierce, who is smuggling weapons.
She tears off Pierce’s cybernetic arm.
But can’t defeat Harry Leland.
The Hellfire Club decides to go after her. The Brotherhood attack:
Later, she’s at home and Rogue comes a’callin’.
This is apparently the first time they met?
I like the art here.
And it even ends with a shower scene.
Which stands in contrast to her “feminist” speech, which I presume was necessitated by the fact that she calls herself “Ms.”?
It impresses Tony Stark, anyway.
Of course, he’s frequently a drunken cad.
These are good Claremont/Ms. Marvel stories, but they’re so out of date that they’re hard to follow.
