Good evening! After an exciting week-long draft, with more twists and turns than a telenovela, we have our year one Marvelcado Comics!

Teaming up with special effects maestro Mysterio, Arcade is getting ready to launch his new Murder World show. The “lucky” contestants this season are: an Omega Level Mutant who’s hair is larger then his personality, the dazzling international pop sensation, a sorceress with magical taste in jewelry, a circus performer turned villain turned Avenger, and six powerless civilians!
Tune in every even Monday to see if our motley Crew can win the game or if they’ll lose their heads.
Great Boos Up‘s The Champions!
Many years ago, Warren Worthington III, alias the avenging Angel, took a chance meeting of five mismatched outcast superhumans and tried to turn them into a finely organized team dedicated to “fighting for the common man.”
He failed. Utterly and spectacularly.
Now, almost a decade later and coming off a series of painful physical and psychological metamorphoses, Warren’s convinced that, with a new business plan and team concept, he can make the Champions work this time. Less certain is his best friend, Iceman Bobby Drake, who’s reluctantly agreed to lead the 3-D Man, Firebird, and Ultragirl to protect a vulnerable Atlanta, Georgia.
But what does the city’s gentrification have to do with its suspicious recent influx of supervillains? Who is the Salamander and what is his connection to the team’s new headquarters? What kind of deadly game has Dylan Disaster been playing with Ultragirl on his Livestream of Doom? Will the mystery man in the stolen Beetle armor be a friend or foe? Why is Hercules acting so strangely? And can Warren finally manage to bury his Archangel persona and reverse the Champions’ reputation?
It’s slam-bang action, mysteries, drama, and social satire in the old-school Marvel manner! Be forewarned: the roster at the beginning of this year will not be the same as the roster at the end!
Every odd Tuesday this Summer!

Grampton St. Rumpterfrabble‘s The Superior
Friends of Spider-Man Foes
“Black Cat. Kaine. The Punisher, sort of. And now… Boomerang?
Fred Myers has had a tough go of things, struggling to make ends meet in the frankly overcrowded world that is New York’s supercriminal marketplace. But after a desperate attempt to save his own hide sees him erroneously hailed as a hero, Fred recognizes a new opportunity: a chance to assemble a team of other, more sincere villains-turned-do-gooders… and trick them into pulling one last job. A job that will solve all of Fred’s problems for good. Or at least get the nefarious Kingpin off his back for good. Or at least get the nefarious Kingpin off his back for now. Along the way, this fearful fivesome will run afoul of heroes and villains alike, including but perhaps not including: The Shocker! Mach-VII! Absorbing Man! The Living Brain! Silver Sable, maybe! Each other! And… I dunno, Galactus? Probably not Galactus.
Crime doesn’t pay. But just this once, heroism might.
I mean, hey, if it worked for Hawkeye…”

Counter-Earth is dying. The High Evolutionary’s research has led him to the same conclusion: the universe, as it stands, is flawed—and he can build it better. Now, he’s prepared to unleash his greatest creations—hybrids of a certain world-eater and a certain living planet— on the cosmos.
From the chaos, a team is born: Silver Surfer! Dr. Strange! Captain Marvel! Thor! Namor! Valkyrie! Beast! Nova! Sunfire! Captain Britain! Manifold! And…is that COSMO THE DOG?
What worlds will live? What worlds will die? Will Ego, the Living Planet find love? Will the Hulk even be bothered to show up and smash?

longbox jockey‘s Secret Warriors.
“The man who buried the Spider. A woman too wild for X-Force. A mind-controlling marksman. A mutant with the soul of a mythic monster. A psycho contortionist who’s been to hell & brought it back with him. A Hydra deserter. And a walking shark. Are they mercenaries? A supervillain gang running rampant? Maybe even a SHIELD cell they keep around for dirty work. Only Mockingbird knows for sure, and she has her own agenda.
There’s always some shadow war going on in the underbelly of the Marvel Universe, and now it looks like someone might be pulling the strings to keep it that way. Will the Secret Warriors be able to find out what’s going on? And if they survive the mission will they survive each other?
