The Return Of Motormouth To Marvel In Captain Carter

In Captain Carter #1 a couple of months ago, by Jamie McKelvie and Maika Cresta, we met Peggy Carter's new neighbour in modern-day London, Harley. And quite the music lover, and music creator she is. We also learn that she is quite a fan of the superheroes.

Created by Paul Neary and developed by writer Graham Marks with initial designs by Gary Frank, for Marvel UK's Overkill comic and spinoff Motormouth ongoing series. Harley Davis was an orphan who grew up as part of an East End gang, who lived on the streets, with her bad language getting her the nickname Motormouth.

And also granted, courtesy of her DNA and embedded technology, to have the power to jump from one parallel universe to another, long before America Chavez got the idea.The Return Of Motormouth Ton Marvel In Catain Carter

Being pursued by Mys-Tech, the big bad of the Marvel Uk-verse back then, she even managed to tame one of the agents sent to capture or kill her, Killpower.

And they ended up sharing the book, as Motormouth And Killpower.

She has popped up a few places since but never for long, including Hulk and Captain Britain & MI 13. But now she is back, reinvented for Captain Carter's parallel universe. But  universe jumping for her – not yet anyway. She still has a mouth on her. But she is a lot better with technology…

Can Killpower be far behind? I do hope so. Very far indeed.
