Great Comics That Never Happened Holiday Special #2: The Hanukkavengers!

In our recurring feature, ComicsAlliance writer Chris Sims and a rotating cast of talented artists imagine a finer world to bring you a look at the Best Comics Ever that Did Not, Will Not, and occasionally Can Not Happen! For December, we’re switching it up a little to bring you a GCTNH Holiday Special every week ’til Christmas! This week, we’re commemorating the final night of Hanukkah with artist Kevin Mellon (Zombie EP, Hack/Slash and the upcoming Deadline with B. Clay Moore) as we bring you Marvel’s Mightiest Jewish Heroes: The Hanukkavengers!

Check out the full cover and the story we wish we were reading this year after the jump!

The Hanukkavengers #1 (December, 2010)

Story by Chris Sims
Art by Kevin Mellon

And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth’s mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united against a common threat to the holiday season On that day, the Hanukkavengers were born!

When the sinister Dr. Doom hatches a plan to harness the energy generated by worldwide top-spinning to power his own Cosmic Dreidel and gain mastery over the entire world, Israel’s own Sabra gathers a group of heroes to save Hanukkah itself! But can even the combined might of Magneto, Moon Knight, Kitty Pryde and the ever-lovin’ blue-eyed Thing stop the maniacal Von Doom?! Maybe not — but the addition of Wolverine, whose contractual obligations to appear as a part of every single team in the Marvel Universe have led him to embrace the teachings of the Torah, ought to even things up!

It’s a gants or nischt battle for the fate of the Festival of Lights with a Mildly Magnificent Mighty Marvel Mazel Tov! L’chaim!
