With the arrival of Captain Marvel in theaters this March and a sequel to Wonder Woman set for release next year, female superhero movies are having a long-overdue moment. But super girls and women have been around for a while, as decades worth of action figures and comic books prove. Now eBay is making it easy to find all your super-powered women memorabilia in one place: Starting March 6, the online marketplace is launching its first shop dedicated to female superheroes.

A collaboration between eBay, comic book writer Gail Simone, and illustrator Cat Staggs, Superheroine HQ features thousands of collectibles for sale. Shoppers will find figurines depicting characters like Harley Quinn, Sailor Moon, Shuri, and Jean Grey, as well as posters and trading cards.

The store also has ultra-rare comics, like a copy of Wonder Woman #1 CGC 8.9 for sale for $149,950, and a copy of Ms. Marvel #1 CGC 9.8 signed by Stan Lee for $4000. If you're looking for something more affordable, Superheroine HQ is also offering an eBay-exclusive edition of Captain Marvel Braver And Mightier #1 with a variant cover for $6.

The success of the movie Wonder Woman (2017) and the excitement around Captain Marvel has boosted interest in female superhero collectibles in recent years. In 2017, a rare Wonder Woman comic sold for nearly $1 million on eBay, and according to the site, sales for Captain Marvel products have spiked by 63 percent.

Avengers: Endgame Reportedly Has No Post-Credits Scenes

The first time fans were gifted with a post-credits scene in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was in 2008's Iron Man. Ever since, audiences have remained reclined in their seats, waiting until the credits pass for any extra footage that might hint at things to come in future Marvel movies.

Post-credit scenes have become the norm over the years, giving fans intense cliffhangers or even just some funny scenes of the Avengers grabbing food after a big battle. But as epic as Avengers: Endgame will be, those who were lucky enough to be invited to early screenings of the film are reporting that the movie won't feature any post-credit teasers, according to CBR.

The choice to not include a post-credits scene could be because Marvel wants the conclusion of Endgame to be, well, the end. And not adding a hint at what’s to come will certainly help to reinforce the fact that the film is marking the end of an era. However, as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed (and contrary to what has regularly been reported), Spider-Man: Far From Home will be the film to close out Phase 3 of the MCU—not Avengers: Endgame. Which makes the lack of any post-credits footage all the more curious (though maybe the studio is just holding them back until the film is officially released to the public).

Then again, given the film's three-hour-and-one-minute runtime, it's possible the studio just wanted to give those viewers dying for a bathroom break a chance to split.
