Quasar - Origin Story
 
09:27
The origin story of Quasar as laid out in Quasar #1. I tried as hard as I could to talk about Mark Gruenwald while putting this episode together but every time I added him in it took over the entire episode. My apologies. For those who don't know - Mark wrote every issue of Quasar but one. He passed away at far too young an age and although I haven't brought it up before the entirety of my CosmicComics series is dedicated to him. At some point I will need to step aside from Quasar and do an episode on Mark but until then I hope you enjoy the beginning of the journey.

This video looks at the origins of the Eternals as laid out in: What If Vol. 1 #24-28 Agents of Atlas Vol 1 #3 Marvel Boy: The Uranian #1-2 This is part of an ongoing series covering all things cosmic in the Marvel Universe and meant to act as a bridge between Parts 2 & 3 of my Marvel Boy series. Edit for a more accurate timeline: Uranos ship was destroyed - Marvel Two-In-One Vol 1 #71 states, "The Inhumans . . . were given a genetic boost some 20,000 years past." I will go ahead and state that there may be additional Marvel Comics that give a different time frame. If so, please message me or comment so that I can update this section! Thanks! One minor mistake I noticed: Near the end of the video I refer to the Native Uranians as Aboriginals when I should have said Aboriginoids.

Quasar - Marvel Man and The Incredible Hulk
 
05:01
The Super-Agents of SHIELD might be no more but The Falcon still needs to be saved. Find out why Marvel Man changed his name to Quasar. Join me for the exciting conclusion. In November of 1977 CBS aired The Incredible Hulk in the form of two made for television movies which are now referred to as Season One of the show. The success of these movies led the way for The Incredible Hulk television show that launched in March of 1978. The events in issues 232-234 are all part of a plotline that coincides with the release of The Incredible Hulk television show (although, I should add the plots are in no way related). The timing of this release had to be great exposure for the developing character of Wendell Vaughn. Intro Music by Shroud courtesy of Alex Mizell https://soundcloud.com/alexmizell
