The August 2014 Fandom in a Mini Bag swap is the Marvel Universe.

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 5 different types of items although more is certainly encouraged to make your bag look full of goodies.

Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, legal music CDs, charms, ornaments, bookmarks, address labels, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fanfic drabbles/ficlets, 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.

Step 3: Put the items in a ziplock-type bag. Size: 1 quart (AT LEAST 8.5 inches by 7 inches or 21.5cm by 18cm). 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 quart 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 September and please send by the deadline (September 30)

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

My favorite groups: X-Men, Avengers, Fantastic Four, S.H.I.E.L.D. (but I haven't watched the tv show yet because my DVR ate it!)

My absolute favorite characters right now: Hawkeye, Agent Coulson, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Beast.

Other favorite characters: Gambit, Reed Richards, the Thing, Nick Fury, Colossus, Rogue, Shadowcat, Iron Man, Captain America, Cyclops. I only recently started falling back in love with Spider-Man (haven't seen any of the new movies).

I love the characters individually, but I especially love when they work as teams.

My favorite shows/movies: X-Men: the animated series(90s cartoon), X-Men Evolution (LOVE THIS SO MUCH), the X-Men movies (haven't seen the most recent yet), Fantastic Four movies and both cartoon shows and comics, Iron Man movies (I can't tell you how freakin' IN LOVE with Iron Man 3 I am), Captain America movie (haven't seen Winter Soldier yet!), Avengers movie (so very very very much), The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (cartoon tv show), Ultimate Spider-Man (cartoon show), Wolverine & the X-Men (cartoon show). I'll be seeing GG movie next week in theaters.

I ADORE Fraction's Hawkeye, but I only own Volume 1 in hardcover, none of the more recent issues. Any fanart or crafts based on this would be more than appreciated!!!!!! I am pretty much in love with anything Brian Michael Bendis writes; I only own a few Ultimate Spiderman comics of his, though I've read a few volumes of the Avengers and other Spiderman comics via the library. And I love Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men (I own all of that). I own and love Marvel 1602 as well.

I would love to know more about Deadpool. I enjoy when he shows up in other things I've read/watched, but I haven't read any of his own series.

If you have any questions about particular characters, pairings (I have het and slash faves), etc. let me know. I'm always happy to receive more comics, especially when they feature my favorite characters.

I'm more pro dc but I do enjoy the marvel series as well. My favourite comic book series by marvel is the Anita Blake series other than that series I don't really read marvel comics but I've seen the movies. I really like Captain America the best though and iron man is pretty cool too however I HATE Spider-Man not a fan of him I think he's way over done and probably won't hold into anything Spider-Man related . Other than that I'm pretty chilld I really like the raccoon in guardians of the galaxy. And I like she hulk as well :) but anything that's not Spider-man I will love :)

phantomssiren 08/22/2014 #

Loki Loki Loki Loki, Ikol, kid Loki and all his kids. Hawkeye (the deaf version not the movie version). Coulson. Hulk & She-Hulk. Wiccan and Gambit. I like Drax, Johnny Blaze and Deadpool because they're totally ridiculous.

Please not Spider-Man

I'll be happy with any of the Avengers (movie, TV shows or comics) but I especially adore Hawkeye. I love him in the comics (I love how sarcastic he is) and I didn't mind him in the movies (a bit disappointed in his story line but I love Jeremy Renner)

Hulk is another favorite. I prefer him in Hulk form rather than as Bruce Banner.

Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier is wonderful. Captain America, especially WWII Steve Rogers as opposed to modern day.

I don't like any of the Spiderman movies but love him in the comics.

I'm really into Guardians of the Galaxy (as is the rest of the world) so anything relating to them is great especially Rocket and Peter Quill.

I. Love. Villains. Loki is just the best and I love Nebula as well as Red Skull, Thanos, Winter Soldier, Ronan...

I really like friendship/sibling pairings as well. Thor/Loki - Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes - Iron Man/Hulk

I have a tattoo of the quote "...till the end of the line" from Captain America: The Winter Soldier so I would love if that could be incorporated in some way.

I'm not huge into X-Men but I do really like Mystique.

Other than that I love being surprised so surprise me!

I absolutely love Captain America and Thor. I also like Iron Man and Hawkeye. I like the Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D show, love Phil Coulson:)

Not much a fan of the Hulk. I don't really like X-Men, or Black Widow

tuesdaytelegrams 08/25/2014 #

My knowledge is mostly limited to the movies, so sorry about that to fans of the comics...

My favorite at the moment is Captain America & Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier. I especially like Cap from the 40s era!!

I really enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy. Groot is my favorite! Also love Rocket & Peter Quill.

Michael Fassbender as Magneto is hot? So you can just put a picture of him in there and that would be a good job.

If you recreate something from one of the movies or a thing that was/might have been have been given to one of the characters (for example a personalized invitation to join the Avengers like it says above) that would be rad. I'm always excited by things that maybe aren't obvious but a fan would 'get'. Or a mix cd for one of the characters (not that I said that or anything bc that is against the rules so jk jk don't do it it's bad not like it will get you a heart or anything).

I'm not too picky, so if stuff is cool then I will probably like it. I don't have particularly strong feelings about most of the heroes...unless you want to send me something The Amazing Spider Man related. In which case, please don't. ;)

I love anything to do with the Avengers, Spiderman (comics/movies/etc) --Anything Marvel really. I'm a huge fan of the Avengers, I especially like Ironman and Hulk/Bruce but I love the others too! I like the Agents of shield but I've only managed to watch a few episodes so far! D: But my all time favourite Marvel character has to be Deadpool so anything related to him would be totally awesome as well!!!! I really loved Guardians of the Galaxy, especially Groot and Rocket :D I don't really mind as long as its marvel related I'll be thrilled with it! :) although I'm not a huge fan of the X-men so I'd rather not receive anything related to them.

KateKintail 08/27/2014 #

Just to add to my previous comment, I saw Guardians of the Galaxy tonight and loved it (knew I would). So anything related to that (especially LEGO!!!!) would be great.

Spiderman! Hulk. X-Men - wolverine, nightcrawler, prof X

sunspot 08/30/2014 #

Hiiiii. I like Marvel. I like Avengers. I like MCU (except Coulson) and the cartoon Earth's Mightiest Heroes (clearly the best cartoon) and Ultimates-verse.

Steve Rogers is best. Hawkeye yes, Deadpool yes, ANY FEMALE CHARACTER YES. Ms Marvel/Captain Marvel Carol Danvers is probably my fave. Loving the Kamala Khan Ms Marvel storyline, loving Secret Avengers (Maria Hill for all the awards). I'm not overly fussed on the Fantastic Four, but I would watch a three way buddy cop movie with Johnny Storm, Clint Barton, and Wade Wilson as if my life depended on it.

This is probably all over the map. Anything will make me happy. Love arts'n'crafts anything :D

sunspot 08/30/2014 #

And like @KateKintail said, Guardians of the Galaxy was amazing.

deborah 08/31/2014 #

Eep. Mega late to the party on this!

Fandoms, from favorite to least: Starjammers, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy

Characters: I am majorly Team Summers, especially Scott (Cyclops), Alex (Havok), and Chris (Corsair, but let’s face it, you haven’t heard of him!). Other X-Men characters I like are Iceman, Beast, Storm, and Nightcrawler. I really love the younger Professor X from First Class and Days of Future Past, because while I like him in general, the more human-but-flawed version is just so appealing. Deadpool… because who doesn’t love Deadpool? And basically all the Guardians.

Shows/movies: X-Men films (2000-2006 and the current run), X-Men Evolution, Guardians of the Galaxy

Comics: Starjammers, original X-Men, All New X-Men, Astonishing X-Men (especially Whedon’s run), Cable and Deadpool. I haven’t read Cyclops 2014 yet, but let’s just assume I love it.

I realize X-Men isn’t as popular as others. I like the Avengers a bit, especially: Captain America, Iron Man, Thor. So that should make it easier? :)

Cocpufffs 09/ 1/2014 #

Cloak & Dagger are my favorite characters and series.

Rogue from the comics not the movie (they messed her character up so much in the movie).

The new Ms. Marvel series.

The X-Men

Captain America

I enjoy all of the Marvel movies though the first three x-men movies are my least favorite. Guardians of the Galaxy is my current favorite.

Agents of Shield

The 80's X-Men cartoon

ChronicKatie 09/ 1/2014 #

I'm very new to comic books so I don't know much about Marvel, and I'm housebound so I can't get to a cb shop to learn from their knowledge! My list is by no means exhaustive, you can really send me something I know nothing about & I'd be happy to learn about it!

I love all the Marvel films but especially Captain America and The Avengers. So far CA is the only character comic books I've read.

There is so much stuff not available in the UK or is much more expensive so I'm excited reading the list above of the sort of things I might receive.

My swap partner is welcome to message me with any questions or if they need more detail.

ChronicKatie 09/ 1/2014 #

After I left my last comment I realised I had a lot more faves:

The Amazing Spiderman Iron Man- I would die of happiness if I got a little figurine or something with Stark enterprises on Wolverine Blade

Cocpufffs 09/ 3/2014 #

I forgot to mention that my fiance likes iron man, doctor strange, and Guardians of the galaxy. I will always take items or him as well.
