Story Details

  Marvel Adventures Super Heroes #3 (Story 2)
Summary: Mini-Marvels story (Mini Peter Parker appears)
Editor: Nathan Cosby
Writer: Chris Giarrusso

Super Skrull lands in Times Square and demonstrates that he has the ability to tap into the powers of each of the FF. As he is demonstrating that he has the powers of each of the team members he brags that he is more powerful than each of them, (Stronger than the Thing, Hotter than the torch, stretchier than Mr. Fantastic and more invisible than Invisible Woman). It is at this point that a young lad with glasses (who looks suspiciously like Peter Parker), gets Super Skrull's attention and asks how he could be more invisible than the Invisible woman.

Stumped by the simple nature of the question, Super Skrull asks once again if anyone knows where the FF live.

General Comments

This is really very a funny comedic break in what is winding up to be a very long, and drawn out retcon of the history of the Marvel Universe.

Overall Rating

You simply can't go wrong with Mini Marvels, they are fun, lighthearted, and enjoyable.


If you enjoy the strips, then you should check out Chris in his long-form storytelling, plus you can always stop Chris' website at and check out the cool stuff that he has there. Chris' work can also be found in a new collection of Mini Marvel Digest entitled Mini Marvels: Rock, Paper Scissors, which is out now.
