Sunday Soliloquy

It’s Mother’s Day — how about a little Celestial Madonna?

According to reliable sources, after leaving the Avengers, Mantis next “appeared” during Steve Englehart’s Justice League run (in an issue which was one of Young Tom’s favorites) and went on to have her baby in Englehart’s Scorpio Rose.

However, we like to think that her particular phraseology inspired a certain Paul McCartney song….

[From “The Reality Problem!” in The Avengers vol. 1 #130, December 1974. Written by Steve Englehart, pencilled by Sal Buscema, inked by Joe Staton, colored by Bill Mantlo, lettered by Joe Rosen.]
