LEGO has silently been introducing some really cool characters into its LEGO Marvel Superheroes line. This week, Ms. Marvel makes her LEGO debut in the Captain America Jet Pursuit set.
Time for a peek behind the scenes of the creative process here in Retro Review corner: Sometimes, I work from a detailed spreadsheet cross-referencing comics eras, publishers, genres, important character appearances and milestones, carefully collated after years of collecting and archiving back issues, selecting each book carefully based on it’s relevance, quality and historical importance… Sometimes, Stephen says “Hey, what’s the deal with these weird guys I just read about in Secret Empire?” Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Captain America #163 awaits!
Though Captain America isn’t very patriotic at the moment, Kotobukiya has a fantastic looking statue on the way that will redeem your faith in the hero.
Before Secret Empire officially arrives, Marvel wants you to check out three lead-in issues that helps set up the great conflict.

What is the Black Widow up to in Marvel’s Secret Empire? She needs the help of the younger generation of heroes to make it happen, and Marvel has announced Secret Empire: Uprising to tell the story.
