Just Imagine - Marvelous - Grant McLaughlin

1 - On the statue of Liberty.  Captain Marvel, Mary Marvel, and Captain Marvel Jr. (also known as Billy Batson, Mary Batson, and Freddie Freeman) are sitting on the statue's crown, looking out over the water / city.  Longshot, with the focus more on the statue than the Marvels.

BILLY BATSON: "The Marvel Family in New York."

2 - On Captain Marvel and company sitting on the crown.  Closer in, we can see they're happy and relaxed, clearly pleased with themselves / the world.

BILLY BATSON (1): It sounded like a wacky idea.

BILLY BATSON (2): But now that we're here...

3 - On Captain Marvel.  Closer still, he grabs Mary and Freddie and hugs them close, the familial feeling strong.  They all smile broadly.

BILLY BATSON: It just feels right.

VOICE (off-panel): Sorry to burst your bubble...

4 - Switch angle.  On a good chunk of the Marvel Comics Captain Marvel family: Mar-Vell, Monica Rambeau, Genis-Vell, Phyla-Vell, Nor-Varr, Carol Danvers, and even Kamala Khan.  Carol is the de facto leader / is at the front of the group.  They look to be in various states of unhappy and unimpressed.  The Marvel Family's expressions probably can't be seen, but suffice it to say they are surprised.

CAROL DANVERS: But it's been done.

  1. It's funny on another level in that, if I recall what I read correctly in researching the topic, 1) Captain Marvel actually was one of the characters covered by the Just Imagine Stan Lee series and 2) the Just Imagine series set the bulk of things on the other side of the country. :^P

    Still, it's a wonder to think of just how many Captain Marvels there are running around across comics.
