I can't believe that it has taken me so long to feature Jack of hearts on a cover. I've been a fan of this B-list (C-list?) Marvel character ever since his first appearances. I still fondly remember his self-titled Mini-Series back in 1984 with the great George Freeman artwork. His costume is crazy and busy, but I have always liked it. I'll bet it is a pain to draw and maybe that has been a factor in how infrequently he has been used over the years. I know he was killed off when Brian Michael Bendis first took over the Avengers, but I lost track of if his story continued after that. I think he got better eventually?
