Avengers was not my first love in the Marvel Comics world. No, that honor belongs to the X-Men. I read my first issue when I was 8 or 9 years old and I instantly connected with the often feared and hated outcasts. I came to the Avengers much later while Steve Epting was pencilling. His work was so gorgeous and it was the quiet, one on one interactions he drew that really got to me.
In those days the Avengers comics were filled with love, romance, betrayal, and overcoming who you no longer want to be…all of those things really intruiged me as a teen who was just beginning to understand such concepts and emotions. Over the years I would abandon the Avengers and then come back and get caught up and wonder why I had forsaken them. That pattern continues today, truthfully.
The movies brought these characters to the world and these days you would be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t know at least a small portion of their story. Black Panther is still my absolute favorite and I can’t see it being eclipsed by anything other than maybe Black Panther 2.
That is not to say that I don’t adore the other MCU films. Infinity War, for instance had the glorious Proxima Midnight! I just had to paint her on earrings last night so she could join the ranks of my other Avengers creations. (Above)
