Kamala Khan is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker, writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona, Khan is Marvel's first Muslim character to headline her own comic book. Khan made her first appearance in Captain Marvel #14 (August 2013) before going on to star in the solo series Ms. Marvel, which debuted in February 2014.
Within the Marvel Universe, Khan is a teenage Pakistani American from Jersey City, New Jersey with shapeshifting abilities, who discovers that she has Inhuman genes in the aftermath of the "Inhumanity" storyline and assumes the mantle of Ms. Marvel from her idol Carol Danvers after Danvers becomes Captain Marvel. Marvel's announcement that a Muslim character would headline a comic book was met with widespread reaction and the first volume of Ms. Marvel won the Hugo Award for best graphic story in 2015.

Isaac, Marvel Comics character scratch built no Eglemoss customs.




ISAAC is a complex and intelligent computer system which fills almost the entire interior of Saturn's moon, Titan. ISAAC controls Titan's artificial biosphere environment and all mechanical operations on Titan.
ISAAC observed a conflict between Mar-Vell, the Avengers, and Thanos.
Thanos later reprogrammed ISAAC with a virus prior to his death, to menace the Eternals of Titan. The computer enslaved the Titanian Eternals. ISAAC dispatched Stellarax and Lord Gaea, and then Elysius, and finally Chaos against Mar-Vell and Drax. Eros, Mentor, and Elyuis eliminated the virus in ISAAC's system, and Mar-Vell defeated Stellarax. The computer was then restored to its original benevolent programming.
Some time later, ISAAC took on an android form, and allied itself with Stellarax, Chaos, and Lord Gaea, in a renewed attempt to carry out Thanos's will. ISAAC then went mad when Mar-Vell forced it to experience the totality of life. ISAAC gave up its android form, and its minions were defeated.
ISAAC confers with Mentor when Drax and Quasar arrive on Titan to consult him, and questions Mentor as he apparently murders them.

Little is known about Inertia's life before she was discovered by Nighthawk and recruited into his Redeemers. Along with four other Redeemers (Haywire, Moonglow, Redstone, and Thermite) she infiltrated the Squadron Supreme and was elected to full membership. She served on the Squadron for a month before the Redeemers openly opposed the Squadron where she fought Power Princess and used Hyperion's strength to defeat her. The Squadron subsequently gave up their plans for the Utopia program and disbanded. Later, while the former Squadron members and the Redeemers banded together to dismantle the Utopia Program there was a disturbance in space. The Nth Man was threatening to destroy the Earth-712 dimension, and the former Squadron members and the Redeemers banded together to combat it. They got on a shuttle and went into space to fight it. In the ensuing battle Inertia was killed when she tried to invert the expansion of the Nth Man, and her body was vaporized.

Marvel Comics Flatman, no eaglemoss, finally a great paper custom

Courtesy of Marvel Wiki:


Matt was a mutant who could stretch his body to great lengths. After dropping community college, he started working at Coolio Beans Coffee and, one day, he met Andrew, a party organizer, who convinced him to work for him, disguising himself as Mr. Fantastic. After a while working together, Matt grew sick of it and decided to use his powers to be a super hero, naming himself Dr. Val Ventura, the Flatman.
As Flatman, he acted as the deputy leader of the Great Lakes Avengers, an unauthorized division of the regular Avengers superhero group that watched over the Wisconsin area.
Called the "2D Avenger," his primary role included long-ranged rescues and helping the team solve crimes with his extensive knowledge of fashion which he was reported to have "studied in college." He was able to identify a women's shoes and describe them in detail, while later rescuing a man and referring to him as "sailor," leading his team to question his sexuality.
Due to his fake identity, he was unable to present a degree that proved his education and, when asked by Doorman what he was a doctor of, Flatman replied that he was a doctor of "stuff." Though Flatman often seemed to act intelligent, he never actually proved any sort of superior intellect.






How did it work? This way:


1-Go to link Flatman two view link
2-Find and print in a scale 1/20 (90mm) the drawing:
3-Cut the drawing and assemble together the two views on a base.
4-Refine.
5-Done...

Rocket Racer, no Eaglemoss custom.



Courtesy from Wikipedia:


Robert Farrell, born in Brooklyn, New York, was the eldest of seven children. He became responsible for his younger siblings when his mother Emma Johnson Farrell died. Robert was a scientific prodigy, and when he realized he couldn't earn enough to support his family, he turned to a life of crime as the Rocket Racer. He developed a super-powered skateboard which is propelled at great speed by small rockets and cybernetically controlled by a crude walkman-like device. He wore a weapon-equipped costume, including rocket-powered gloves which give him the ability to hit an opponent with a "rocket-powered-punch."
Early in his career as a burglar, Rocket Racer encounters Spider-Man.
Rocket Racer hires Tinkerer to redesign his skateboard after his first defeat by Spider-Man. At one point he is hired by Jackson Weele to steal evidence that might incriminate him. Robert uses the evidence to blackmail Jackson. Weele wishes to commit suicide but Robert stops him. Even then, though, he mocks Weele, calling him Big Weele. This is enough for Jackson to hire the villain the Tinkerer to create a literal 'Big Wheel', to chase Robert around town with. Spider-Man assists and Jackson seemingly falls to his death in the Hudson River. Later, Rocket Racer was saved by Spider-Man from the Bounty Hunter.
Repeated defeats at the hands of Spider-Man and several brushes with the law, including a short jail sentence, convince Robert to reform.[volume & issue needed] He goes through a high school equivalency course and his extremely high marks gain him a scholarship to Empire State University.
This doesn't go well as his first few days are full with combating the efforts of a hate-group on campus. Though assisted by Spider-Man and sometimes, by other students who oppose the racism, Robert still struggles with his own rage during the entire ordeal.
Later, Robert attempted to prove Spider-Man innocent of a crime; and first encountered Silver Sable and The Outlaws. He joined forces with Spider-Man to stop the white supremacist, Skinhead. He was hired as a freelance operative for Silver Sable International to prevent two youths from stealing the victims' weapons at the Bar with No Name, the site of the Scourge massacre. He was again hired by Sable to stop the Speed Demon.
He joined Spider-Man and the Outlaws against the Avengers and the Space Phantom, He was again hired along with the Outlaws to retrieve a Symkarian nuclear device in England.
He was hired by Sable to stop a runaway subway maintenance robot. Rocket Racer finally formally joined the Outlaws, to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a Canadian official.
Robert is identified as one of the 142 registered superheroes who appear on the cover of the comic book Avengers: The Initiative #1. As a registered hero, he reported to Camp Hammond for training. Despite this, he needed money to support his comatose mother and prevent repossession of their house, so he was seen working for MODOK. He appeared to have been tempted back into crime, and reduced to a state of stuttering nervousness by the situation.
He turned out to have been working for S.H.I.E.L.D. all along, with a deal that they will give him the money he needs in return for the Hypernova - he failed in this and it's unknown yet what's happened with his mother.
Rocket Racer is part of the new class of students when the Avengers Academy moves to the former headquarters of the West Coast Avengers. Rocket Racer later leaves the Avengers Academy alongside Machine Teen to join child genius Jeremy Briggs.
