    Default Marrina in Blackwulf #5

    I found a previously undocumented Alpha Flight appearance from Oct 1994: issue #5 of Blackwulf. If youre all, "Who the Bendis is Blackwulf?", try this page for some info.



    Marrina appears in 1 panel in flashback to the time she was an honorary member of the Avengers, a battle scene with the Kree Sentry android from Avengers #289.

    When I get the chance, I'll scan in the image.

    Love,

    She also appears in Avengers #3 (199 on a monitor screen saying she is deceased

    That's not listed either

    Avengers 3! Nice! Out of curiosity, why didn't you mention this before? I appreciate the info but I'm wondering... any others you could share?

    I only bought Blackwulf #5 today after finding a complete run at my LCS. I had heard somewhere, in a forum (not this one) about the Marrina appearance, but it was unconfirmed so I didn't mention anything. Actually the LCS had 5 complete runs, weird.

    If anyone (completist!!!) wants a copy I can get one for $1.11USD

    Wow, what a strange coincidence that we both made a little discovery like this, both Marrina sightings, just a few days apart. Very suspicious. Very, very suspicious.

    Well, I'm going to go see if I can find me a copy! Thanks again!

    OK I'm pretty spazzy at photobucket but here is my attempt:

    Marrina from Blackwulf 5:

    Note: that's She-Hulk getting slammed by the Sentry robot.

    compare this to the original Avengers 289 panel:


    I hope I made the images right. They seem too big.

    Fortuitously, my LCS had a mint copy of the Avengers vol 3 #1! For 50% off! What a grab! Thanks again for the pickup, King Mungi.

    Ah, I came across a variant copy of Avengers vol. 3 #1. It's a sketch variant with "Rough Cut" on the cover and the inside pages are pencil sketches. Marrina's head appears on p18, just like the color version but without the text "DECEASED" underneath it. When I get the chance, I'll do a scan.

    OK I finally scanned it in. You can see the side-by-side comparison here. (LGT the relevant entry on my Alpha Flight collector website)

    Oooh I found two more variant covers of the Avengers v3 #1 issue. One is the "sunburst variant" and the other is a chromium Marvel Collectible Classic. The sunburst variant is rare, but possible to find, appx $10 or so, but the chromium one is scarce, prepare to break around $25-30 for it in any decent condition. That's four covers now that I found. Here are some pictures!



    I really like the chromium one because it's a relief of the Perez artwork used on the regular cover.
