This script was more or less written waaaaay back at the end of the snow chapter where they had the re-match with Martina. Was originally going to be Zodiac showing a slide-show with these images off as they selected Marshalls for the Blue Blood Hero project, showing that he was an all-American hero, and we'd see little bits of him getting the treatments and developing his powers before his big debut as Marvelous Man. But at more or less the last second we decided to hold off on that, let the plot of the project lie low for a bit so readers wouldn't be thinking about it, then have the character appear suddenly, bringing the subplot roaring back into the spotlight. I really like the presentation, as it informs a good deal of Marvelous Man's character, so I think it was the right call.

Not a whole lot else to say. At this point we were very clearly bored and trying to rush to the end of the chapter; this page was a pretty blatant attempt to add some more stuff that would be visually cool and different. The next page has a little bit of that too, at least.

Yeah, not much else to say. Ah, well. ^^ Funny I'm setting this up so it'll be up before I got to work, but I don't have much to talk about with the page. .... And it'll be up before I leave anyway, I'm realizing. Huh.

Did I overdo the "Good ol' American boy" thing? I kinda wanted to try for a "Steve Rogers if he wasn't a string-bean" kinda origin story. I guess appropriate given I also find Captain America to be a fairly bland character as well.

Good news, I've been burning through the backlog on Blues coloring lately! Probably make the return to detailing at the start of the next chapter, would say the 400th page but it comes pretty quickly after that point so might as well go ahead with starting for the new chapter instead.

Anyway, this page kind of came at the tail end of a streak of doing several in one night, so kind of did it in parts since I wasn't feeling too up to it right at that time. Pretty happy with it though, think it explains the character well and gives a little more insight into what kind of things you can sort of expect to see out of him going forward.

I am not in any way impressed, the man might be a great soldier but he's a lousy superhero.
