I didn’t grow up reading superhero comics.
There wasn’t any real reason why, except perhaps that none of the adults around me did. It does mean, though, that when I talk to people about comics, and specifically how they got into them, I sometimes feel a little weird or self-conscious about how late I came to the game. Which is, of course, ridiculous: superhero comics are for everyone, and it’s never too late to get into them, and I will say so loudly and repeatedly to anyone who asks.
But this article isn’t about my superhero comic origin story. This article is about me and Captain Marvel.
