Choice By Brandon Whaley
So, aside from Blonde Phantom (which I missed out on) we havent had much of a presence from the ladies around here. I feel like this needs to change. So for this week (and hopefully my triumphant return) I've chosen Gamora. Why her?
Well, quite simply, she's my favorite female in comics. She holds her own with the cosmic heavy hitters (and in the case of Richard Rider, dominates, in every sense of the word.) She's been nigh-destroyed and came back for more. She's rough and tumble and doesn't take any crap. Quite simply, she's the galaxy's most dangerous woman.
I hope my fellow Ballooners enjoy writing my fave female. And I hope you readers enjoy our takes on her.
(posted by Max as a proxy for Brandon, who is apparently trapped in 2006, but that hasn't stopped him writing a great Why post, eh?)
Gamora was created by Jim Starlin and is owned and operated by Marvel Entertainment. Check some stories in the links below.
Hmmm, never heard of the wee lass... Should make for an interesting week.ReplyDelete
The strongest memory I have of Gamora is from the Infinity Gauntlet saga. I might give her a shot.ReplyDelete
We see an establishing shot of a run-down community hall.
GAMORA (FROM BUILDING): Thank you all for coming.
We see a close-up of Gamora, sitting on a cheap folding-chair in a typical community hall room—various posters and flyers stuck to the plain brick wall in the background.
GAMORA: I thought there was going to be more of you, but that’s OK.
PANEL THREE, PAGE-WIDTH
We now see a wide shot of the room. Sitting on identical folding-chairs in a small circle are Gamora, Lyra, Jarella, She-Hulk, Poison Ivy, and even a Star Wars Twi’lek dancer.
GAMORA: So you all know why we’re here…
Close-up on Gamora again.
GAMORA: So who wants to go first?
From out in the hall, we can see the group through a partially open door. On the door is taped a simply-typed sign reading:
GREEN WOMEN’S SUPPORT GROUP
MEETING HERE TODAY AT 4PM
Danial, well in mate. You had me with the Twi'lek dancer. Very nice. You impress me with the ability to get a script up each week so quickly and with such short notice. I struggled with mine for ages until today and then quickly posted it. I was lost for inspiration for far too many days.ReplyDelete
Thanks. Because I don't know the character at all, I didn't feel "qualified" to do a serious piece... so comedy is always a good fall-back :-)ReplyDelete
Nice stuff Danial; much like you, I don't know the character at all, so I'm interested to see how my script goes. An idea finally came to me this morning - 'least I'll make my deadline!ReplyDelete
