Relocating the Marvel Universe -- Marvel's Merry Maryland

My blog series, Relocating the Marvel Universe, continues along with the state of Maryland, which features one of my favorite Marvel heroes of them all -- The Jack of Hearts.
But my favoritism aside, it's also the tromping ground for two mutants, a robot and a six-armed freak. Just like the 31 other states I've covered in the series that pulls Marvel's heroes out their typical setting of New York City and peppers them around the entire United States -- and for the most part gives them an in-story reason for being there.

See if your state has been covered by going here!

Read Maryland's entry here!

And coming soon ... An interactive map showing where every hero is located!

Ugh ... editing problems ... I need to read, edit and re-read ...

Yep! Virginia is next, then Washington D.C. (Puerto Rico is getting its own as well.)

Are you giving Washington, DC its own entry?
