BLACK SWAN is a movie starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. Black Swan is a character from Jonathan Hickman's NEW AVENGERS run. They share a name but are different. For our purposes, we're all about the latter today.

Why? Well, BLACK SWAN is a surprising bit of body horror grindhouse flick dressed up as Oscar bait (and it worked!) but nobody asked me to psychoanalyze it, so... Black Swan it is. 

She entered the Psych Ward last week and proved to be a very tough nut to crack indeed. Read my attempts to get her to open up at Marvel.com. 

As an addendum, why so many so pale as to be actually the color white women in comics? I do find that a bit confounding.

Additional addendum: how long do you think it takes Swan to brush her hair? 

Final addendum: can you guys tell I needed to add some text to this article to make the layout less awkward?
