Re: So You Think You Can Retcon

I had a fanfic planned retcon for the Ancient History of Mutants before Hickman did it that would've combined several areas of the Marvel U. The basic idea is that, in pre-history, Atlantis was a city-state out in the Atlantic that was was a safe haven for mutants. We (probably) would have followed ...

Re: Wolverine: Black, White, and Blood #3

I've specifically been picking it up because of the artwork and it haven't been disappointed by it in that arena yet. I think that Bachalo's artwork is perhaps the worst I've seen so far, and that's just in terms of legibility. I couldn't tell what was happening in so many of those panels, they just...

Re: X-Corp is Here and It’s by Howard!!!!

As a long time Archangel fan, I can only hope that he's an actual character in this and he isn't just going to go back and forth between "I'm good Angel! Oh no, I'm bad Archangel!" every month. Definitely not too keen on Howard as the author myself, but I love these two characters and the concept, s...

Re: WandaVision, season 1.

My personal theory is that "Pietro" ISN'T Pietro from the Fox Movies. We're told that everything and everyone in WandaVision - so far - are real people and actual things in the MCU, just recast by whatever it is that the hex does. Whoever is manipulating Wanda picked up on the idea that Wanda misse...

Re: Avengers #41

I have to agree with the naysayers - this run has had SO many good ideas that just haven't gone anywhere and I'm feeling lost. Like, Aaron has so many potential threats waiting in the wings that I just don't give a floop about this tournament. I love the weird potential characters, but none of them ...

Printing error in Mosaic 8?

I've been putting together a big collection of the Inhumans books from the big push a few years back and I'm ALMOST done with Mosaic - I only need issue 7 left - but my copy of issue 8 has a huge misprint. The middle portion of the book is from some Guardians of the Galaxy related story. Did anyone ...

Read the final six issues on Thanksgiving (that morning) and just re-read the final two parts - and I loved it all. ALL of it.

Given the other collabs that Hasbro has been doing, and the Blackbird in that image, I'm gonna guess that we'll see a Transformable Blackbird. Could be neat.

I think a lot of the complaining that I'm seeing here is based around the Swords event not giving it's audience what they thought this was going to be - Krakoa VS Arrako, a standard tournament arc wherein each side does combat, someone loses and or dies, and the fights are the most interesting part...

Mr Sinister technically is't a mutant but he is allowed on Krakoa he artificially inserted his mutant gene and is more of an advanced human.
I actually TOTALLY forgot that Sinister isn't a natural mutant. Wow.

Re: X of Swords

@norwichchris - Ozymandis isn't a mutant, so he shouldn't be able to enter Krakoa. Nephri would be a VERY interesting callback. This feels like "new" to me, and not "old with a modern spin on it" though. My personal thought is that this character is Apocalypse's ex-wife/lover from thousands of years...
