The February 2013 Fandom in a Bag swap is the Marvel fandom.

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, shows/movies, subfandoms, moments, or any other preference you may have.

Step 2: After partners are assigned, check to see what your partner likes. You can follow-up with a message if you need to know more. Then scrounge up, buy, and/or create items that fit in a bag. Your bag must contain at least 7 different items although more is certainly encouraged (try to make it look full).

Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, charms, ornaments, books, bookmarks, address labels, postcards, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fainfic, zines, etc.

More specific ideas: personalized invitation to join the Avengers, Xavier Institute honor student bumper sticker, hand-drawn comics, story about your own super powers, spiderwebbing, guide on how to cope with realizing you are a mutant, protection items against Marvel villains, how to choose the perfect sidekick quiz, S.H.I.E.L.D. badge/patch, etc.

Be sure to check your partner's profile so you don't send anything he or she might be allergic to.

Also keep in mind that this is a swap for Marvel, not DC or any other comic fandom.

Step 3: Put the items in a ziplock-type bag. Size: 1 gallon (measures about 10 inches by 11 inches or 28cm by 26.5 cm). You can decorate the bag or incorporate the bag into something (mount it or sew something around it). If you want to make or buy a bag instead of using a ziplock plastic one, that's fine as well, but it should be at least a gallon in size. All items you gather or create should fit into the bag (if a couple are too big, that's fine).

Assemble your bags during the month of February and please send by the deadline (March 1).

Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! Flakers will be tortured by Doctor Doom.

My favorite shows/movies: X-Men: the animated series(90s cartoon), X-Men Evolution (LOVE THIS SO MUCH), all the X-Men movies, Fantastic Four movies and both cartoon shows and comics, Thor movie, Iron Man movies, Captain America movie, Avengers movie (so very very very much), The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (cartoon tv show).

If you have any questions about particular characters, pairings, etc. let me know. I'm always happy to receive more comics, especially when they feature my favorite characters, or action figures (I've got Captain America but no one else... and he's lonely).

First and foremost, Stan (the man) Lee!! Second, Joss Whedon! :)

Love The Avengers! Especially Captain America & Thor. S.H.E.I.L.D.: Agent Coulsen is a BAMF! For that matter so is Nick Fury! Black Widow is Bad-a$$!

X-Men: comic, cartoon & live action! Professor X (McAvoy or Stewart), Fassbender's Magneto, Wolverine, Jubilee, Rogue, Gambit, Storm (Eman would have been sooo much better than Hallie Barry!), Emma Frost and others - but they are by far at the top of the list!

I love all the romances and triangles! I love strong characters that anchor the story!

I tried to keep this relatively short, though I could talk about Marvel for hours! That being said, I’m sure I’ll love whatever you send. I included Runaways because I really enjoy it, but I know it’s an obscure one.

Fandoms: X-Men, Deadpool, Runaways, Avengers (especially Iron Man & Thor)

Characters: Nightcrawler, Wolverine, Beast, Storm, Shadowcat, Professor X in First Class (even if it was like watching my grandfather try to score), and my favorite character in X-Men is Cyclops. I don’t usually admit that! But he’s awesome (and really adorable in the movies. Um, I mean… who doesn’t love a one-eyed angst cushion?!). Deadpool, of course! Molly, Chase, Klara, and Arsenic and Old Lace in Runaways. Iron Man! Also Thor, Loki, Sif, and Captain America. One of my favorite quotes is Cap’s.

I love Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr version), and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman's version).

Mind you, my eldest son really likes Hulk, Thor and Captain America too, if you get stuck.

Wow, I love this swap!

My absolute favourite fandom would be Thor - I love these comics! Loki is pretty much my favourite character, but I do like Thor himself a lot, too. The Avengers series is pretty cool, too, although I'm not really a fan of Captain America, more into Iron Man and Thor. I'm a sucker for Stan Lee in general, though, so most comics by him are awesome, just because he drew them. I love Daredevil, Frank Miller and the type of dark "antiheros" as well as most of the Marvel Horrorcomics. Actually, I'm quite easy to please, because I like lots of Marvel Fandoms - as long as it's not Captain America or Spiderman. I watched some of the films as well and some of them are quite okay (Thor was rather cool). I'm really looking forward to this swap! :)
