I may have made this mistake more than once. Also, I would buy the hell out of that book.
The Miracleman/Marvelman saga is a legend in comics circles. Not so much because he was a super great character, but because it is one of the more complicated stories of character ownership in the modern age. Names like Moore, Gaiman, Anglo, McFarlane and more have been involved with the character and the litigation is been lengthy.
I was not fortunate enough to have gotten to know the character during his inception, but I am kind of interested to see what happens now that Marvel has gotten their hands on the rights. It’d be interesting to see how they are going to work him into the post-AvX Marvel Universe. Sometimes a bit of new(ish) blood injected into the mix can be a pretty cool thing.
We will see what happens, but my biggest concern has yet to be addressed: Is he fat-free?
