Yeah, this was sort of a last-minute thing; I'm going to need someone for Marvelous Man to bounce off of in future story ideas for this arc, so this seemed like a pretty natural way to take it. We'll be seeing more of her in the future, this one.

The Superman nods are pretty heavy in this one. Funnily enough Superman specifically wasn't a big influence on Marvelous Man (though I did get the idea for him after reading a Superman story), but still borrowed from the mythos a good deal for this, to the point of looking up pictures of Margot Kidder to draw Maggie. Then Martin pleasantly surprised me by giving her red hair more akin to Superman's other major love interest Lex Luthor (and also Lana Lang).

The final panel is also a bit of a homage to the way classic Superman comics would end, always with Clark and Lois together, making weird double-talk, usually accompanied by Clark turning over his shoulder to wink at the camera. I understand how utterly cheesy that is, but really love those endings. The reason I probably didn't go full-on wink-to-the-camera was probably just because Marvelous Man's not really the comic's hero.

One odd thing about Marvelous Man's cape is how billowy it is. I just started doing it to ake it look appropriate for him, but over time started to realize just the extent to which it was always.... not necessarily flapping, but always sorta full and rippling like a sail. By contrast, Grant's cape is sorta limp and lifeless. Betcha he's crazy jealous.

It figures I'm having to set this page up before I can go to bed since Adam's working tonight and we didn't think to handle it earlier, since for this particular page I really have no clue what to say.

Yeah, typically Adam and I discuss a lot of storyline plans and the point of given scenes between each other a lot but in this particular case, yeah, I'll readily admit I dunno what this scene's about outside of seemingly setting up a Lois Lane sort of character. So really not a lot to say here in regards to the actual content. Will say did try and avoid using that sort of color scheme for her at least.

Margaret is Greek, you geek. It means a pearl.

Aaaaaaand then it turned out Adam went ahead and set up the page after I did so so at first we got two uploads of it. Eh.

Bit of miscommunication - basically Adam didn't check to see if I'd put up the page before he did so. Fixing it now.

heh. he's supermaning it. nice.

Well..maybe not. since the id is known hmmm... Still, nice that he's willing to give a friend a interview. more stuff like this to make him seem like less of a dick so MAYBE the fans won't treat him like a blue blood roman regins. ^^() God help him if he reaches cena levels.
"Let's go Marvelous man! Marvelous man sucks!"

The Reigns thing is gonna get even funnier a few pages from now in an entirely unintentional way.
