*Marvel: Well, if you’re nitpicking, it’s Raven Darkholme – the mysterious shape-shifting lady who made ominous appearances in Ms. Marvel’s solo series didn’t adopt the name Mystique until later, real-time. But nevertheless, this is the lady who became the core of the New Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and has also (variously incarnated by Jennifer Lawrence and Rebecca Romjin) been a central character in the X-Men movie franchise. These three consecutive issues, #16, #17 and #18. kick-started the comic book career of one of Marvel’s most popular ‘bad girls’. Issue #16 (1st cameo) is VF p £40, #17 (2nd cameo) FN p £12 and #18 (pictured, 1st full app.) VF p £70.
