Re: Thunderbolts Draft

With Ironclad taken, my original idea for some muscle is gone, so instead, Sable will hire another mercenary and former Thunderbolt, Erik Josten, aka Atlas . https://www.writeups.org/wp-content/uploads/Atlas-Marvel-Comics-Josten-Thunderbolts-a.jpg And then, cuz I'm running out of good reasons, Sable...

X-Statix is one of the few x-related books I've never read, but I will check this out and see if it does anything for me.

Re: Random Thoughts

You aren't going crazy, you did talk about barber shops. But for some unknown reason, this discussion took place in the thread for Uncanny X-Men #15. I mean someone has to do something about what Wolverine is rocking up there.... Maybe Wolverine is a Saiyan and his hair hasn't changed since birth? ...

Re: Thunderbolts Draft

*coughs* Well, I suppose it won't be a surprise that I want Arachne as my Double Agent, BUT HERE WE ARE. And for my next round pick, Sable wants someone a bit more unorthodox. With Symkaria's recent political unrest, she needs to win back what allies she can, yes, but she also needs to make sure tha...

Re: Hickman return confirmed! Will it be on X-men?

I only just got and read Gaiman's Eternals and I have to agree with Anna, it's pretty perfect in it's execution. I read the first issue and it felt JUST how a pilot episode of a show should work. Given Hickman's use of the Deviants and Celestials throughout his SHIELD run, I'd say that he definitely...

Re: Age of X-man vs Uncanny X-men

I'd been waiting until I got X-Tracts and Prisoner X before chiming in on this thread and I'm kind of surprised to find that I'm on the opposite side: I'm digging Age of X-Man WAY more than Uncanny. Part of that is BECAUSE Age of X-Man is an alternate reality. Ever since the AoA as a kid I've dug th...

Link's Awakening, the Oracle games, and Link Between Worlds are my personal faves. While I loved BotW, I don't know that I would be willing to go through it ...

I would put money down that Bendis didn't have any kind of plan regarding Sauron. HOWEVER, I would put down money that he would answer this question by saying "They wanted another rogue element out in there in the world, drawing the heroes attention to THAT instead of them." I don't believe it's eve...

Re: X-Tremists #1

There are three main problems to this issue, to my mind - the tone, the characters, the larger narrative. The tone does not work, at least not yet. The concept of this group has been introduced in the other AoXMN titles. They're the Boogeymen, they're who everyone else is supposed to be afraid of. T...

Re: Skyward Sword vs BotW

I've never played Skyward Sword, so my views aren't terribly couched in anything from experience. From what I've seen, it's simplistic, the controls can be frustrating, the story is pretty trash, and nothing interests me - personally - about it. Breath of the Wild, though, I FLIPPING LOVED.

Gwah, Arachne was going to play a pivotal role in relation to one of my next picks, so that forced a rethink, and Madame Masque was going to be MY Mistaken Identity, forcing ANOTHER rethink. So now, Silver Sable is adding in SCREAM. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/marveldatabase/images/e/e4/Donn...

This'll be fun to ignore when Marvel loses the Conan rights again. Do like Shang-Chi renaming the father. "Remember when we teamed up with Cunon? Yeah that was totally his real name and the only one we should use from now on. Cunon the Conqueror." I'd love it if they just called him Arnold the whol...

Conan was owned by Marvel previously btw...like SW...which is turning out pretty good *shrug*
I've actually been wondering if Selene and Kulan Gath - who, from my understanding, originated in Marvel's older Conan stuff - would cross paths with him again.

I'll probably try this book for the cast, but like Jazz above me, Gerry Duggan has been SUPER hit or miss for me. GotG started out pretty good, but Infinity Wars was a MESS.

Re: Marvelous X-Men #1

I tend to agree with das - I don't feel very strongly one way or the other. Given that this book is the only pure X-MEN book, it's clearly meant to focus more on their status quo and who/what the X-Men are in the AoXM. The individualism as utopian, them as rescue more than as fighters, and who they ...

Re: Age of X-Man Alpha

Someday I’d like to see a utopian story arc where it really is a utopia. Where there’s no doubt what was lost is a price worth paying. And where the heroes lose and we revert to 616, and that’s a tragedy. Honesty, that was MY take on the House of M story-line. I still don't understand how the X-Men...

Re: Thunderbolts Draft

This has been a really surprising Draft so far. I was expecting Songbird and MACH # to get picked up pretty quick, but there have been a LOT of unorthodox choices and I'm loving it. I went into this without a plan at all, but seeing certain characters get scooped as formulated my concept for me.

Re: Underrated and AWOL

Pat Broderick's run on Doom 2099 is AMAZING to me. So much detail and imagination, and he always took the time to make reflections and visual effects reflect off Doom's armor.
