This head sheet popped up on another site and it got me thinking as to where the Captain Marvel one was ever used. Any suggestions, folks?

Hmmm. Picture is not showing. It's the head sheet used for the corner of Avengers, but with Captain Marvel included.

Sorry, can't see the Image. If you're referring to Mar-Vell, I believe JB heads were used in the Avengers OHOTMU entry back in the day.

If this is refering to the Black female Captain Marvel, the little head (ahem) on the OHOTMU page was, as I recall, by John Romita Sr. That was the one used in the corner symbol.

Funny, I tried to google the OHOTMU Avengers images, and was given a link right back here, even though I didn't even use the word "Byrne" in my search: HERE (also HERE for the original art).

The Captain Marvel looks like she has your eyes to me, unless JRsr was doing an excellent impersonation of your work!

The jawline and slightly open mouth seem more Jazzy than Jocular.

That's the one. Thanks. Not sure why my image didn't work.

Still unsure why he was included in the Avengers entry. I appreciate there was the Kree-Skrull war, but was he really a significant character in the run to be included?

I've been giving serious thought lately to getting some of these tattooed, under the red MARVEL banner. I don't have a single inking on my body, but these are a fantastic visual and were such a big part of growing up.  Best part is I could do 1-2 at a time whenever the mood strikes.

I thought that it was amusing timing that JB came back to Marvel and AVENGERS just as Gilgamesh, Sersi, USAgent and Quasar became members, so he added their corner heads alongside the ones he had already drawn years before.

Hmm.  The ones for Cyclops and Mr. Fantastic don't quite look like the ones I remember from the original '70s & '80s corner boxes.  Where are those from?
