This Week in Marvel
  1. Jean Grey vs Iron Man. Storm vs Thor. Who would you pick? And if Sophia Petrillo from The Golden Girls were a Marvel hero, who would she be? Between Marvel Battle Royale 2020 taking over social media, and Ryan + Lorraine’s 2020 Golden Girls-Marvel Mashup™ tearing friendships apart, this week is full of tough decisions. 

    Thankfully, King Deadpool of Monster (formerly Staten) Island is on the case to answer life’s toughest questions, as editor Jake Thomas reads officially sanctioned responses from the Merc With A Mouth to his loyal subjects.
