Tigra and Tarzan



It will probably be a while before we see Tigra join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  With The Cheetah set to make her debut in the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984, Tigra will probably seem too similar in nature to introduce too quickly afterwards. Still, I always liked her personality and I hope she shows up somewhere down the line/

On Hulu, Tigra will on an animated show with Dazzler (what an odd combo). There will also be separate animated series for Howard the Duck, Hit Monkey, and MODOK. Later, they will all team up in their own combined animated series The Offenders.

I'd read about the others but not the Tigra/Dazzler show - sounds fun!

The good news is with the success of Avengers & Black Panther, Disney/ Marvel will have enough to do a live action series heroine with her just like Supergirl uses the Martian Manhunter.

Could a cover with a similar-enough plot feature the Littles (mouse-shaped tiny people).

Say Ross, I think this is the first time you teamed up two heroes from the same company. :) Of course, everyone has published Tarzan.

It might be interesting for a cross publisher crossover. The Crusaders, Star Trek, Tarzan, etc... properties that more than one comic has published.

But Buscema and Romita Sr.? OH YES PLEASE!!!

You know, back when Marvel had the licensing rights to Tarzan (circa early Eighties, I believe), it would've been great to see them adapt the ERB novel, TARZAN VS. THE LEOPARD MEN. As I recall, that had been inspired by an actual cult operating in Victorian Sierra Leone. Which, of course, led to a Johnny Weismuller film loosely based on the book. And even an Italian comic book where Tarzan teamed up with G.I. Joe wanna-be Action Jackson against them!

So, for a real-world crossover between these two, I can easily imagine the Leopard Men being ret-conned as one-time slaves-cum-worshipers of the true Cat People. Hence, Tarzan's grudge against them!

Thanks again, Ross, for stimulating the rest of our imaginations with these wonderful cover sims. :-)

Add Star Wars, Conan, and Red Sonja to the Council of Cross-Publisher Properties.

Maybe the next time the Olympics roll around Ross can do a riff featuring publisher vs. publisher with all teams using the same set of characters.

Cary Comic said...

I second Jay's motion! :-)

Bob Buethe said...

Also Star Trek, Sherlock Holmes, He-Man, and a few others. (Captain Action, maybe?)

Cary Comic said...

Or, failing that, Capt. Action and Action Jackson!

@Carycomic: sounds like an "Ideal" pairing to me. ;-D

If you're referring to ERB, that would be "Uncle Ned." ;-)

Actually, John Carter was supposed to be Ned's (presumably maternal) uncle!
