Welcome to Wham! Bam! Thank You, Ma’am!, Geeks OUT’s monthly recap that focuses on the trials and tribulations of a different Marvel Universe SFC (Strong Female Character) every thirty days. With the cinematic acid trip, Doctor Strange, a little over a month away and a Kathryn Immonen-penned return in this month’s annual issue, it only seems appropriate that the silver-haired sorceress with killer leggings take center stage.
