In 1977, rookie comic book writer Ann Nocenti was given one daunting instruction for her first assignment: kill Spider-Woman. More than 40 years later, Spider-Woman is very much alive. Not only that, she’s the subject of an upcoming series of her own, written by Karla Pacheco.
When she started working at Marvel in the late 1970s, Jo Duffy was eager to make a splash. As a Marvel editor and writer, she worked on Power Man and Iron Fist, Doctor Strange, early Star Wars comics, and countless other titles. She tells Judy and Sana about her early days as a Super Hero fan, being one of the first women to work in the Marvel bullpen, and laying the groundwork for future women of Marvel.
Sana calls up Tokata Iron Eyes, a 16-year-old leader within her indigenous community. From an early age, Tokata has stood up for Lakota land and worked to amplify her community’s history and legacy. Speaking over the phone from the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, Tokata reflects on the power of storytelling and why she’s so passionate about empowering other young people in her community.
For more about Tokata, and to see her story immortalized in a Marvel comic book, watch the next episode of Marvel’s Hero Project, streaming January 17 on Disney+.
