...in my opinion a quintessential 90s hero who was part of a quintessential 90s team.

Secondarily, it's me waving hello to the person in our community who, along with Reverend Meteor, first sparked my interest in, and appreciation of, 90s comics. Do you know who I'm referring/alluding/waving to?

Century: Your Alien Hero




I still can't quite believe Marvel shilled the comic with that line, yet I love that it happened.

Anyways, thanks for the welcome to the board, and for the banner.

With but a few exceptions, I pretty much draw the line of "1990s comics I love" ending somewhen in the second half of 1996, and from there on, late 1990s Marvel was kind of a wasteland to me (and that's the stuff everyone else loves), but in addition to having all those TV/movies/videogames and pro-wrestling threads to look at, I will always have time to talk about 1980s and 1990s comics, and to show love for first-half-of-the-1990s stuff no-one else cares about. Particularly that team that had Century and Moonraker on it, and was putting superheroes in sci-fi/horror/fantasy-tinged storylines when no-one else at Marvel was really doing anything similar.

I've always been impressed by the logo. I think it's one of the best ever made.

You're welcome. Out of curiosity - Do you recall ever seeing another Century banner here at Comicboards? Or might this be the first ever?

I can't believe that Century AND the Scatter have been in limbo all this time!

How did they escape even a cameo in any of the Annihilation stuff?!?!?!?
