^^^I like this, they all look ready for studio 54..
 :-*
but please tell me that's just a blow-out frilly collar and not a depiction of monica's shoulders in a hunched-over stance..

and here's the preview at Newsarama.. Looks like Monique is a cynic when it comes to speed-dating..

How is Monica carrying passengers when she flies?

She can only fly because she's made of light.

She's a skrull.

looks like Tah has a scan of a pre-Nextwave occurrence of touching while flying..  ;)  I suppose early on she only did this rarely, with practice, or learned how to re-access those 'secondary powers' involving force-fields that Mr. McDuffie's revamp gave her for a while..

First issue hits stands today--
based on the CBR review....
http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=user_review&id=1168


The undercurrent of Puritanism in fandom continues to astound me.  I’m baffled as to the ‘exploitive’ nature of the cover.  With the exception of Firestar being put back in her original outfit, these are the up-to-date outfits of the protagonists; J Scott Campbell draws lovely curvy women.  So does Frank Cho.  Get over it.  If it was a ‘lingerie party’ alternate cover, we could talk exploitive then (and as long as the artist was on-point, I’d still have trouble complaining.)

Lessons learned from #1-

1) hmm... I have to learn how to make jambalaya... (is seafood absolutely necessary, 'cause I'm allergic..)

2) monique doesn't like pillow-talk (darn...)

3) Hank Pym's radiation-absorbing upgrade of Firestar's costume didn't work (or was too late?)

Lots of interesting stuff in the first issue.

Hellcat is the narrator for the story, Monica/Photon's the hardass, Black Cat is the adventuress and Firestar is the girl next door.

The book starts out decidedly light in tone and explains that the four met at a singles night that was spectacularly unsucessful.

Other that thier mutual unluckness in love the four seem to share a mutual resentment of the "A-Listers" Sue Richards, Storm, She-Hulk and White Queen.

There's and entended bar scene where the Divas talk to each other about thier various man problems.

The book ends with Firestar dropping a bombshell on the group that could well change the tone of the series.

This is fun but if you're an action fan look elsewhere as the issue is mostly humorous chat.

i mean it is ok. It is not like their is anything to get excited about
With these choices, I felt that the American black man only needed to choose which one to get eaten by; the liberal fox or the conservative wolf because both of them will eat him.

A) THAT Henry Pym might very well have been a Skrull.

B) If I remember rightly, the new costume that Pym gave was supposed to heal her the more she used her powers while in it. Then she retired. Maybe retiring for her was like stopping the treatments.

When did Monica become the angry black female Marvel? ::)

Well I guess after all the years of disrespect, she's had enough of Marvel's mess!

I have to admit issue 1 made me chuckle a few times.

I'm really wondering where this Brother/Doctor Voodoo thing is going?

If it doesn't work out maybe Blue Marvel would be a cool match up, who knows.

Next to T'Challa and Ororo, it would be nice to see another power couple.

MARVEL DIVAS #4(of 4)
WRITER: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
PENCILS: Tonci Zonjic
INKS: Tonci Zonjic
COLORED BY: June Chung
LETTERED BY: VC - Cory Petit


All your questions will be answered here, True Believers! When the real intentions behind Daimon Hellstrom's indecent proposal come to light, does it mean that once again, Patsy Walker is going to Hell? Also, now that Monica's helped Doctor Voodoo obtain the dread monkey's paw, does that means HE now owes HER? After Felicia's fight with the Puma last issue, is there any way their relationship can survive? And when a blast from the past re-enters Angelica's life, will it be at the moment of her greatest triumph or most crushing defeat? All bets are off in the heart-stopping conclusion of this high-buzz mini-series!

Yeah it is a cute cover.

Oh god I hope that's not her shoulders, that would really suck...lol

I think it's her collar though.
