|Like her? Her name is "Miraclewoman", and she's hotter than a red giant.
Here she's just rescued Mike Moran's wife Liz from a shape shifting Alien (from Miracleman #11, Art by John Totleben with colors by Sam Parsons; Script by Alan Moore).
|The McFarlane statue, quite frankly, looks a little... uh... gay. Not that there's anything WRONG with that! Here's an as-yet-unreleased dead-ringer for "Miracle Man" by Randy Bowen.|
|Alan Moore pokes a little fun at Miracleman's origins by pointing out that Gargunza got the idea from a Captain Marvel comic book. (Art by Alan Davis)|
|Hey, Freddy... THANKYOUVERYMUCH!|
According to legend, Elvis Presley modeled his famous hairstyle on that of Captain Marvel Junior, his favorite hero.
A futuristic version of Freddy (below), known as "King Marvel" (designed by Alex Ross) was, in turn, heavily influenced by Elvis' look!
|Gangway for Captain Thunder! The original hero in his first (and rarest) appearance in the Flash Comics #1 Ashcan!|
|Look familiar? The cover to George Khoury's 2001 Paperback Kimota! The Miracleman Companion took its look and inspiration from the first appearance of Captain Marvel (then, Captain Thunder), just as Miracleman (then, Marvelman) took his inspiration from Captain Marvel himself! (Incidentally, Miracleman's "Ceremonial Uniform" seen here was taken from John Totleben's design in Miracleman #16 (scripted by Alan Moore.)|
|Gangway for, uh, who dat? DC's first pairing of Superman and Captain Marvel was abandoned at the last minute. In his place, the VASTLY different CAPTAIN THUNDER! Sounds Familiar!|
|A joke worthy of the gods, DC and Marvel temporarily bury the hatchet in the "Amalgam" universe. Of their many combinations, Marvel's Captain Marvel and DC's Captain Marvel unite to become... Captain Marvel.|
|The Pastiches never end! Here's "Mightyman", essentially a combination of the Marvel and DC Captain Marvels. He even becomes Mightyman by uniting his bracelets. If you're questioning whether he's REALLY based on the original Captain Marvel, check out the pic on the right! (Click either image to enlarge... pop ups must be allowed.)|
Note: during a brief time at Image, Alan Moore wrote a couple of stories with Mightyman in them.
|At the risk of sounding like an eternal Optimist, Prime (from Malibu Comics' Ultraverse line) was a pretty interesting and compelling variation on the original Captain Marvel. Here, a 13 year old boy named Kevin Green becomes Prime by projecting a liquid-flesh adult body around him, with superpowers. Like Miracleman, adult themes were explored in Prime Comics.
