Hello Again everybody , I would like to present my latest Ultraverse (pre black September versions ) vs Marvel Characters (and 90s Marvel characters ) and in this case I decided to showcase another wild battle /pairing of two warrior women from different dimension in the Marvel Universe .
first up is Mantra hailing from the Ultraverse (pre marvel buy out /pre Black September aka Unwarranted Marvelization of the Ultraverse about 1995 /96) her origin is about an Eternal Warrior named Lukasz & his Compatriots who was locked in a battle with an Villain named Boneyard (who would later show up on the Ultraverse Cartoon`s last 2 episodes ) , anyways whenever Lukasz & one of his solders dies in combat their souls would put into another body to continue their battle against boneyard . in the 90s Lukasz`s leader Archmage was betrayed and captured , which lead to most of Lukasz`s fellow solders to die permanently in combat, which would lead to Lukasz dying in combat and being re-incarnated in the Body of Eden Blake . and from there he had to deal with Eden`s life as a Divorced single mother of 2 children , along with her trials and tribulations of living life as a woman . Lukasz discovers Eden`s Vast Hidden powers which also equips /fashions her Mystical Armor by a specific invocation including the word ‘mantra (which the media of the Ultraverse called her such ) also it was Mantra`s series which lead to the Inclusion of Topaz who would go on to battle Mantra and later she would join Ultraforce . over all I find Mantra to being an Interesting character of the Ultraverse because of her rich and complex back-story & Visual design . I wish she would have gotten an Action figure during the 90s (hell I still think Mantra deserves one made today ) also I liked the whole Prime /Kevin Green having a crush on Mantra thing in their ealier crossovers ( also the Whole Break Tru storyline is one of my favorites and Mantra`s crossovers with Prime`s series during that time too . I will admit I miss Eden Blake / Lukasz . shame what they did to the character post Black September by replacing her with a teenage high school cheerleader valley girl type . other than that I also like who Mantra had her own Evil version of herself named Necro Mantra . I believe some of that had taken place during the whole godwheel saga .
anyways on the right is the All New Captain Marvel , who I was familiar with from X-Men as was written by Chris Claremont during the 80s (mostly from her first run in with the Brood in space during that time which lead to her becoming Binary ) I also know her as the Person who Rouge got her Powers of Superhuman Endurance and invulnerability from along with her ability to fly . ( this was back in Carol`s Ms Marvel Days ) I have always had a fondness for her because she was the reason for why I liked rouge as a character also a little piece of Carol was in rouge`s head for most of this time until magneto living in the savage land separated the 2 and destroyed evil carol during that time in the early 90s ) but other than that I did not read the Adventures of Carol for a long time ( well one reprint of an unpublished story where she fights Sabertooth ) or if I would play was her in Marvel Ultimate alliance , later I would read her alternate reality self in either the Age of Apocalypse Timeline or the Ultimate Universe . it was not till say 2 years ago after the whole X-Men vs Avengers aftermath had got me interested again . during the 1st wave of all new marvel titles one that was (still is written by Kelly Sue DeConnick ) also her new costume which I took to really enjoying the design of because it was something fresh and new and Colorful . also seeing the various cosplay pics of it on tumblr had endeared me to her new look . but my favorite out of the Cosplay set was the one by Judy Stephens ( who is a photographer , Blogger ,AR Manager , cosplayer , works for Marvel ) who to me had this Perfect look as Carol / Captain Marvel . so my version here that I Illustrated is in part based on her Cosplay version of Carol with the Short hair .
now the concept for Mantra and Carol`s meeting is because of all of inter dimensional incursions happening in New Avengers written by Johnathan Hickman . have been opening up Riffs into random timelines and universes in the Marvel U . and in this Case one has opened a portal into the Ultraverse ( from the early 90s pre-black September timeline ) with Mantra suddenly thrown into the 616 Marvel universe . Captain Marvel who is on patrol responds to an Energy spike caused by Mantra upon her Arrival in the 616 . and from here we meet Manta who looks a little confused by being confronted by an Battle ready Carol who meets Mantra in the Air above NYC .
this was another Fun What if piece of Fan Art to put together . ^_^
enjoy my inter dimensional Rumble in the Concrete jungle
