One of the most iconic scenes in Avengers: Endgame (in a movie filled with such moments) occurs during the final battle after Spider-Man gives Captain Marvel the Infinity Gauntlet. Just about every female superhero in the MCU appears next to Captain Marvel and then they proceed to cut a swath through Thanos’ army. Do you think we’ll see an all-female superhero team? Let’s settle in for some MCU speculation!
Inclusion of the scene stirred up some debate afterward with some fans stating the scene “felt forced.” Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely also debated whether they should keep the scene: “[t]here was much conversation. Is [the scene] delightful or is it pandering? We went around and around on that. Ultimately we went, ‘We like it too much.'”
I think most fans felt the same way. As I’ve written before, regardless of what your politics are, what matters to a corporation like Disney is whether the market demands such content. If so, Disney will supply it. For these reasons, in my opinion, I believe we’ll see more moments like this. For this reason, I’m recommending that investors take a look at A-Force, the first all-female superhero team.
Like most comics released during the 21st century, A-Force #1 has many variants (13 to be exact). We’ll discuss the three most valuable variants below: (1) the standard edition; (2) the Inhumans 50th Anniversary Variant; and (3) the Hans Variant.
The Standard Edition
In my opinion, the Standard Edition has a beautiful cover. The cover pays tribute to all of Marvel’s most famous female characters, including Captain Marvel, Scarlett Witch, Storm, and Black Widow. As the team’s leader, She-Hulk stands at the cover’s center.
Likely because of its great cover, the Standard Edition is more valuable than most of the variants. Since Avengers: Endgame debuted, 101 CGC 9.8 copies of this book have exchanged hands. During that period of time, this book’s value has risen by nearly 28%. According to GoCollect, its current FMV is $95. You can still find raw, high-grade copies of this book for less than $20 on eBay. No MCU speculation list is perfect, but this is a cool book to have on the shelf.
The Inhumans 50th Anniversary Variant
The Inhumans Variant is the most valuable version of A-Force #1. The cover of this variant focuses on Medusa, one of the original members of X-Force, and sort of a co-leader of the team along with She-Hulk.
Since Avengers: Endgame debuted, 34 CGC 9.8 copies of this book have exchanged hands. During that period of time, this book’s value has risen by 20%. According to GoCollect, its current FMV is $250. You can still find raw, high-grade copies of this book for less than $XX on eBay.
The Hans Variant
A-Force #1 also includes the first appearance of a cosmic entity named Singularity. The cover of the Hans Variant seen here provides a close-up of Singularity’s face, which resembles that of Eternity’s. Considering that Singularity first appears on Battleworld, we may see her in a future iteration of Secret Wars in the MCU.
The Hans Variant is the second most valuable variant. Since Avengers: Endgame debuted, 47 CGC 9.8 copies of this book have exchanged hands. During that period of time, this book’s value has risen by 54%. According to GoCollect, its current FMV is $95. You can still find raw, high-grade copies of this book for less than $XX on eBay.
