This is a really fun story about a really big Multiple Man fan: artist Jason Loo. Once upon a time, way back in November 2017, Loo posted on Twitter a really fun bit of Multiple Man fan art. It’s this great little piece that really leans into the awesomeness and uniqueness that is Jamie Madrox the Multiple Man.
Life being awesome, that picture was finally noticed this past April by Marvel head honcho Tom Brevoort. You can see Brevoort’s reply on the link to Twitter. How exciting, right? Brevoort is instantly floored with the creativity of the artwork and wants to put Loo to work.
And as of X-Corp #3 this week, it seems they really did! This new double-page spread appeared at the end of the new issue. It’s a beautiful piece!
Congrats to Jason Loo for putting his creativity out there and getting to make some real Multiple Man content!
The world is indeed a better place because of Jason Loo!
Want to hear something funny? I missed my own 10-year blogging anniversary! It happened back in April and I had no idea because I don’t keep track of that sort of thing. I thought I was on year seven or something. But nope! Ten years of writing nonsense day in and day out. Thanks for reading!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #81 for another fine issue, but featuring a moment that truly stands out as something special and heroic.
Meanwhile, Heroes Reborn is building to a fitting conclusion! I’ve really enjoyed this Big Event, for once. Makes me wish I’d been reading Jason Aaron’s Avengers all along. I like his work. I forget why I stopped. The man did almost kill Stingray…

It’s the week of weeks! What week is that? Why…this week, obviously. I’m getting more sleep now so I’m feeling better, so at least there’s that. Plenty of fun comics this week, from the finale to Far Sector to a couple more solid chapters of the Hellfire Gala!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #8 because, as is usually the case, I love this comic and everything in it. Maybe I just love any iteration of the Green Power Ranger too much.
Meanwhile, the first episode of Loki has arrived and it was really fun! I like the set-up, I like the characters and actors, and I think this is going to be a really neat show. Likewise, Heroes Reborn remains really neat! Probably my favorite Big Event from Marvel in a while.

It’s the week I’ve been waiting nearly a year for! X-Corp has finally been released and Multiple Man, my favorite comic book character, is back in regular comics! What a joyous day! Too bad it had to go up against a new issue of Mighty Morphin. That comic can’t be beat!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #7 for another jam-packed issue full of neat characters, great story twists and the new Green Ranger!
Meanwhile, I’m still reading and skimming through the new Heroes Reborn big event from Marvel and I’m really digging it! The comics feel like a spiritual sequel to Amalgam Comics. They’re based on the lighter, more chipper tone of comics from the Amalgam era, and they’ve even got callbacks and references to “other” comics from the “canon”, like Amalgam used to do! For example, one of the comics features what is supposed to be a preview for a new Starjammers comic “coming soon”. And these comics are full of cute crossover/merged character appearances and cameos, like Johnny Storm of the Nova Corps! So yeah, I’m having fun with Heroes Reborn so far!

Last July, I set a task to solve a mystery about my favorite comic book character of all time, Multiple Man. Basically, with Multiple Man alive and well again on Krakoa, was he back to the regular, classic Jamie Madrox? Or was he going to operate under the new rules established for dupes while he was dead? When Marvel put out a “Multiple Man” comic starring a dupe, while the real Madrox was dead, they changed the rules so that duplicates could no longer make their own duplicates.
It was a dumb retcon and really grinded my gears.
So I’m very pleased to reveal that the retcon has been done away with in the first issue of X-Corp! Multiple Man is back, and his dupes can make more dupes!
I’ve never been so happy to see Multiple Man get punched in the gun by Monet!
His role in X-Corp is fun and I’m very glad that he’s back in regular ongoing comics again. I very much look forward to his continuing adventures. And I’m very pleased to say that the Multiple Man Mystery I set up for myself has already been solved!
