Marvel Superheroes in “One More (Bad) Day”


All right, admittedly, this short cart0on by Junaid Chundrigar doesn’t represent any part of any actual  Marvel continuity — it just shows the Marvel hereos at their most hapless instead of heroic. That said, I have decided on my own that this cartoon now represents the official future of the Marvel-616 universe. When the earth dies, it will be because a pudgy, listless Galactus floated by, and Earth orbited directly into his gaping maw. Hey, it makes more sense than Earth-X. (Via The Mary Sue)
