Marvel Comics And Greg Land Design A Captain America Mask For LeBron James

Lebron Greg Land mask
Marvel Comics/Greg Land

As often happens when basketball players break their noses, the Miami Heat's LeBron James has been playing with a face mask for the past week or so. The one he sported for a bit was a rather intimidating, all-black number some people compared to Batman's mask (it takes some imagination, but you can kind of see it).

James didn't really like that one, though--it was hot and uncomfortable--and his teammates just plain thought it made him look scary. Even the NBA asked him to change it, so he has switched over to a clear one, for now. But James told the Associated Press he's working with artists at Marvel and DC to create "one of the greatest masks of all time," and artist Greg Land is first out of the gate a Captain America-themed design for him.

‘Mighty Avengers’ #1: Racial Dynamics, Disenfranchised Youth And Absent Dreadlocks [Review]

Mighty Avengers hed

 

 

Depending on who you ask, Mighty Avengers #1 is either a big deal or completely unnecessary. To some, it represents a significant moment: Marvel putting sincere thought and effort into publishing a super hero title starring a cast of characters who are mostly persons of color. To others, it's an idea that's "contrived" or "forced," taking away jobs from hardworking, honest, god-fearing, and completely fictional white people. That, or it's yet another Avengers title from the publisher, and there are some who already complain that there are far too many.

But wherever your feelings lie, what matters most -- what should matter most -- is whether or not Mighty Avengers is a good comic. Written by Al Ewing and with art by Greg Land, Jay Leisten and Frank D'Armata, Mighty Avengers #1 is, in many ways, a very promising start.

‘Mighty Avengers’: A Step Forward For A Publisher, A Change In Tone From An Editor

51b211aa4fc63

 

After days of teaser images from Marvel hinting at some kind of new series, this morning the publisher finally announced a relaunch of Mighty Avengers. Written by Al Ewing with art from Greg Land, the new series features a team led by Luke Cage, with Falcon, White Tiger, She-Hulk, Spider-Man, Blue Marvel, Monica Rambeau (now named Spectrum), a new Ronin, and the new Power Man as members. Notably, the team is comprised mostly of heroes who are people of color and/or women.

Mighty Avengers has been championed by Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, who in the past has gone on record as describing the idea of an Avengers team comprised of all or mostly black characters as being "contrived," but now says, "people who are interested in these characters and want to see heroes that reflect them have a genuine point."

We got a big response to my last piece on sexualization in superhero art, and I'm back today with another look at the same premise: that comics art tells a story, and on a certain level, you can judge it according to how well it tells the story it's trying to tell. This week, we're going to compare and contrast how a female character is depicted in cape com
