In our penultimate, giant-size episode, Alex shares his obsession with Marvel’s bald goddess of the mind, Moondragon. A member (and antagonist) of the Avengers, Defenders, Infinity Watch and Guardians of the Galaxy, Moondragon has been a major player in Marvel’s cosmic comics for five decades, appearing in Thanos-centered stories by artist and writer Jim Starlin since 1973. Adn, from the mid-2000s to the present, Moondragon, née Heather Douglas, has been in a queer relationship with alien super heroine Phyla Vell. Johnnie helps Alex process his deep over-identification with this self-defeating, arrogant, and morally superior character who once appeared on his birthday cake.
