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. Through a purple haze of magical residue comes the Dark Dimension’s most fabulous exile… Clea!
With the second season of Marvel/Netflix’s Daredevil looming on the horizon and casting rumors for Doctor Strange coming at fans like a swarm of locusts, now seems the appropriate time to discuss the pseudo-obscure, nocturnal medical professional who has tended to the health and well-being of both titular characters… Night Nurse. Is it really possible that this lone, “d-list” SFC (that’s “Strong Female Character” for you newbies) can be the knot that ties several of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s television shows into a wonderfully cohesive bow? Can she honestly make the MCU’s “shared” universe feel more, well, shared? If Marvel is smart with how they play their hand, the answer is a resounding “YES!”
