This blog, the one you’re reading right now, remains the #1 place on the internet to track where Strong Guy shows up in comics. I’ve been doing it for a couple of years now and am still having fun. People actually pay attention. And Strong Guy remains both cool and used in random appearances.
The latest continues to be the Marvel Unlimited X-Men comic. Last issue Strong Guy showed up in an awesome adventure with his best pal, Madrox the Multiple Man. In the newest issue, released last week, Strong Guy has a team-up with Mr. X-Man himself, Wolverine!
I won’t spoil what the duo get up to in this issue, but how cool is it that Guido gets to be written and drawn by Declan Shalvey? And he gets a team-up with Wolverine? Krakoa has been really good to our boy Strong Guy, and I look forward to pointing out more of his random awesome appearances.
Keep watching the comics, Strong Guy Watchers!
What a week, people! This might be one of the most joyous weeks in comics I’ve ever had. We got a new Multiple Man Marvel Unlimited comic this week, Strong Guy gets in on the action in Secret X-Men and then we’ve got the mother of all team-ups!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Amazing Spider-Man #88.BEY for bringing together some of my favorite obscure characters for a delightful comic! I’m so glad my obscure favorites aren’t being needlessly murdered for once! Let’s here it for Hornet and the Slingers!
Meanwhile, I’ll have a review up next week on the first season of The Book of Boba Fett. Pretty underwhelming, if you ask me, but otherwise fine. Then the week after, I want to do a review of the first season of Peacemaker, because that show is amazing! Why couldn’t James Gunn have made a Boba Fett TV show? Oh well. In other news, I’m enjoying Pokemon Legends: Arceus just fine.

It’s a good day, my friends. Just yesterday I was talking about how I enjoy spotting my favorite comic book characters when they randomly show up. And it’s happened again! In the best possible way! If you’re subscribed to Marvel Unlimited, you’ve had access to some Marvel web comics, including an X-Men book. And as if Marvel was reading my mind, this week’s issue kicks off a new story starring a friendly reunion between Multiple Man and Strong Guy!
Even better, the whole thing is written and drawn by creator Jason Loo. Remember him? He’s the incredible fan who created his own Madrox fan comic and got discovered by Marvel honchos on Twitter and was brought on to do real Marvel work for the recent X-Corp comic.
I won’t spoil what happens in this issue — available now — but it features a real, awesome reunion between Jamie and Guido that recognizes that the two are best pals. I think that’s the first time we’ve seen such a thing in years! There’s also some quality time with wife, Layla Miller, and their son, along with some X-Corp cameos. And the comic will continue!
Jason Loo is the Multiple Man fan in all of us, and he’s getting to actually take the reigns on the character. This is a pretty good dream come true.
Fun news, everybody! Remember when Marvel held a public vote for the final member of the new Krakoan X-Men team? And remember how Strong Guy (and a bunch of others) lost? Well Marvel loves fun, so they’re going to launch a new Secret X-Men comic book next year starring all the nominees who didn’t make the cut!
Looks like fun to me! It’s going to be a one-shot comic by Tini Howard and Francesco Mobili in which the team goes on a mission into Shi’ar space. You can read more about it at Marvel.com.
Honestly, this team would make for a great group of X-Men. Marvel should keep it going! Also, I don’t want to say anything, but “Secret X-Men” was the title of my own Krakoa-era X-comic that, obviously, I’ll never get to publish. But I can dream…
Strong Guy has lost the vote for membership in the X-Men. That’s garbage. It was audience choice! We voted! And you people failed him! How incredibly disappointing. Marvel let us know with this fun mini-comic ahead of the Hellfire Gala.
At least the mini-comic is funny. And it features both Strong Guy and Multiple Man! That’s a major plus in my book. Still, what a disappointment. I should probably be upset with myself most of all. I didn’t do enough campaigning and glad-handing.
Also, did Jumbo Carnation not come up with one of those gorgeous outfits for Strong Guy? Or Is that sleeveless tuxedo what Jumbo came up with? Double also, they’re using Multiple Man as a waiter but didn’t get him any sort of party outfit at all? Just his classic uniform? This is the Hellfire Gala, people!
This great little mini-comic is by Zeb Wells, Mike Henderson and Rachelle Cheri.
