I know it's not the season for it, but reposting is all the rage, and I like this one.  It was also possibly the only one I have which I don't have to pick through trying to decide which pages to eliminate; yes, this story is posted in its entirety, but it's certainly not the only story in the special.  There was also one with Namor in a Santa suit and one where the Fantastic Four help out a random mook.  ...Not sure where it went, I've been disorganized lately.

I really like this issue.  Fluff, you know?




















































And Cap's doing that "In the forties we had no problems with casual contact" thing, and Spider-Woman apparently wants in, and Virginia is totally crushing over him- whoah, how did I not notice his boots before?!  The treads!  Squee!

*cough*  Be happy, people.

Ah, days of innocence.

I'm not sure I buy Cap being part of the predatory mistletoe gang.

If he did notice the mistletoe gang, I don't think he was part of it so much as deciding hey, a kiss is a kiss.

I also find Tony, Logan, and Steve being all attentive over Mary Jane to be hilarious.

I keep hearing all of Doctor Strange's lines in the Doctor Orpheus voice. With the background music, even.

Ah, I have the Dr. O syndrome too. Not that it's a bad thing. I find it's the only way I can get through Strange's lines sometimes XD

Who is Doctor Orpheus?

He's from Venture Bros, he's based on Doc Strange. Sample.

The video is not available in my country. :(

*searches*



Oh dear. *snrk* Well, in my head Strange is a touch less melodramatic, more self-aware, and a bit deeper voiced.

Ah sorry, I didn't think to check.
But only just a touch less melodramatic! XD

(And now I'm picturing Spidey snickering every time Strange speaks, because he keeps picturing Orpheus! LOL!)

Still awesome. Especially "...wait, I'm no good at speeches. Let me get my Captain America standee, with Inspiring Speech Action."

I love the look Cap gives him before obliging. Everyone in this is awesome.

This is seriously amazing - please tell me it is collected somewhere for purchase! I love how everyone is hitting on MJ and Jessica, and yet it doesn't come off as sleazy or cheap. The bits with Gravity are hysterical, and I really love this artwork. Thankz for the late/early Christmas gift of scans! :)

If it's not in a trade with other Holiday Specials, it really should be. I like this issue because, well, it's fluff. Nothing to be serious about, totally harmless.

No problem. :P

That looks like the best x-mas ever, with the ultron head in the top of the webbed carnivore tree; this doesnt look like the regular 616 universe everyone is so smiley and happy to each other is this from the Marvel Adventures universe or any other universe were heroes are fun enjoy each others and still kick ass. BTW I think only Tony and Logan are hitting on MJ, Steve is just being polite, Cap would never go for a married woman.

Loved the scans thank you so much for posting.
