About this deal

In 1981 Dez Skinn opted to revive the character for anthology Warrior. After his preferred choices turned him down, he became aware of Alan Moore's similar interest in reviving the character and requested a proposal. Impressed by the writer's ideas, Skinn commissioned Moore as writer for the strip, which debuted in the first issue of Warrior in March 1982. [6] Moore would later relate that he was drawn to the character's resemblance of the concept of the Übermensch from the writings of Friedrich Nietzsche, a concept that would be frequently drawn on in this revival. [7] After others had demurred, Garry Leach was assigned to draw the strip. He modelled the revised Marvelman on actor Paul Newman and redesigned the chest insignia into a more modern style. Leach and Moore opted for a graceful look for the character in contrast to the more common musclebound superhero archetype. [8]

Other escapades Marvelman was involved in included preventing Boromanian attempts to sabotage Professor Jowik's new mega bathysphere; [45] stopping the ice cream-crazed Abominable Snowman and his Snowman minions; [46] defeating super-computer the Electronic Brain,; [47] foiling a Boromanian plot to use scientist Doctor Ramado's miniaturised hydrogen bomb to blow up a table tennis tournament; [48] saving oblivious astronaut Professor Swivelhead from his own oblivious behaviour; [49] clearing his name after circus strongman the Great Anvello framed him as a criminal; [50] defeating scientist Cuprini's evil mirror image version of himself; [51] preventing destruction of a United States Navy squadron by a two-headed kraken; [52] dealing with an epidemic of insomnia brought on by the King of the Land of Nod sulking; [53] using a demonstration of his formidable powers to cause Martian War Lords to abort a planned invasion of Earth; [54] stopping jealous electrical genius Austin Amps and his attempts to sabotage rival Oswald Ohms' all-electric town Wattingham; [55]
