Mantis: Marvel’s Multiversal Madonna


A confusing comic continuity conversation.

A confusing continuity conversation, all about the Guardians of the Galaxy’s Mantis.

My friend Jeff had been wanting to spring this absurdly complicated info dump on me for a while, but he insisted that I have the cameras rolling when he did. I’m glad, because the mess that is Mantis makes fun video fodder.

And honestly? We barely scratched the surface…which I found out when I went looking for visuals to lay over the video, and wound up diving deep into the nightmare of retcons, authorial intent, editorial interference, and sexism that is Mantis. With all I discovered while editing this, I might have to do a follow-up (I definitely have to do a follow up).
