Basically a whole bunch of Marvel Comics injokes and cute caricatures.
Done by Gurihiru, a Japanese artist team best known for their work on POWER PACK, it’s a very irreverent take on the Marvel Universe, if the characters all lived in the same apartment building.
I’ve translated the title liberally as HEROES OF THE H-MANSION, but as with a lot of things in this project, I’ve taken a lot more liberties than I deserve. If there’s any real groaners in here, I may well have put them in overzealously.
This is not to my knowledge a licensed Marvel Comic in any way. Even in the original dialogue, the actual names of characters are meticulously avoided. It appears a Japanese fansite of American comics called Planet Comics commissioned the work and it stopped updating around two years ago. Still, there’s around 30 comics to get through. You can check out the original site here -
So that’s enough preamble. Enjoy!
Spidey-Man’s shirt says “Kumo”, the Japanese word for Spider.
Professor H’s original name was something more like “Landlord X”, but I changed it to keep with the lame joke in the title.
30,000 yen is about $300 USD.
The title of the dirty magazine is “Ero Para”, which I’m guessing is short for “Erotic Paradise.”
The sign on Byclops’ wall says “Pass”, which is a common sight on the wall of students taking important exams.
