Marvel’s Eternals + The History of Jack Kirby

In This Episode

On Episode 11 of X-Ray Vision, Jason Concepcion & Rosie Knight pack up & start an Amazonian mind-control cult! In Previously On…(1:34) Jason goes solo to recap Eternals, the latest in the MCU, out in theaters now. In the Airlock (24:56) Jason and Rosie dive deep (deeeeep) into the theories and characters of Eternals. For the Omnibus (49:06), Jason chronicles the work-life of Eternals’ creator Jack Kirby; in The Hive Mind (or rather, the Uni-Mind) (1:14:02), Jason is joined by comics journalist and author Abraham Riesman for a conversation around creators rights in the comics industry, especially involving Jack Kirby and Stan Lee. Finally, in The Endgame (1:26:21), Jason and Rosie play Assembly Required, picking their Eternal to go head-to-head in a randomly selected scenario (Hint: they’ll be swiping left & right). Use #XRVEndgame & let us know what you think of their choices!

Black Knight, Created by Roy Thomas & John Buscema, he’s a Marvel hero whose debut was The Avengers #47 in December, 1967; Dane Whitman is in fact the third character to hold that title. Black Knight has been a member of The Avengers, The Defenders, & MI13, Marvel’s equivalent of the famed real life MI6.

 

Blade, Created by Marv Wolfman & Gene Colan, this half-man, half-vampire (aka dhampir)’s first appearance was 1973’s The Tomb of Dracula #10. Wesley Snipes played the character in a trio of films that came out from 1998 through 2004 (the second was directed & written by a budding Guillermo del Toro and available on HBOMax).

 

She-Hulk’s Past with Eros (aka Starfox), Featured in She-Hulk Vol 2, #6-7, from 2006, written by Dan Slott and art by Will Conrad; the arc ultimately doesn’t really resolve the fate of Eros after his escape from court, so it’s hypothetically possible that the character is still wanted for his crimes on Earth.
