Timing, part twenty-two.



I think I have maybe one of the two comics Marvel's White Rabbit appeared in: her first appearance was Marvel Team-Up #131 but she also made a fun showing in Marvel Adventures Spider-Man #35. I thought of her because she was mentioned in passing as she received a beating, in an X-Men novel, as one of Doctor Doom's lackeys in a Cosmic Cube-created reality. (That was X-Men: Doctor Doom: The Chaos Engine Trilogy, Book One written by Steven A. Roman. A fun read, but make sure you get all three books before you start, 'cause I had to wait forever between books...) Needless to say, a leggy redhead with bunny ears and one of the Penguin's umbrellas, is not one of Spidey's deadliest foes.

And I'm pretty ok with that, to be frank. There's no reason every bad guy has to have a body count in the high triple digits. And somewhere like the Marvel Universe has got to be crammed full of wannabes who think they could be the next Spider-Man or Doc Ock, depending on which way they want to go. In a world with winged millionaires and socialite Avengers, being rich or smart or pretty might not be enough for some people...

As always, your logic is impeccable.

Yeah, I'm going to agree with Kurt on that. White Rabbit, vastly preferable to Sabretooth, for hygiene alone.

Once upon a time, I had that Marvel Team-Up. Then it vanished, and I've never figured out what happened to it.

White Rabbit? Wow, I missed that one!

CalvinPitt... Are you sure she'd be more hygienic? Sabre's less likely to give you an STD.
