    • DC removing comics at some Walmart already? From Vu Is DC removing their comics at some Walmart location already? It could be that some people are buying up all copies of #2 or stealing the display boxes. >>> Xeno @lambrose_xeno writes: I had that one of my local Walmarts had taken down the display for the DC comic & asked when there might be more & was told they hadn't seen the rep in some time. I went to another Walmart & they had the older (# 1s) as well as the #2; they also had two covers of Showcase.

    George Perez's Scarlet Witch does not wear underwear

    Wizard Magazine's 1999 “Avengers Special” issue featured an interview with Kurt Busiek and George Perez, the writer and artist respectively of the Avengers comics at the time. When asked for a fact about the Avengers that only he would know, Perez declared to the world that Scarlet Witch “rarely wears underwear.”

    Looking at Perez’s design for Scarlet Witch, it’s easy to imagine her going commando in that revealing outfit. It might not be the most practical decision for fighting but the costume in general isn’t particularly practical. Perez supposedly created his distinctive design as a way to pay tribute to the character’s Romani heritage, but SOMETHING about it gives the impression that there was an additional motive in the design process, and that motive was fan service!
