Re: CBR’s list of 50 Best Marvel Characters of 2019

In terms of mainstream appeal a good superhero needs either a unique appearance (including signature props like Cap's shield) or unique powers (like say Ant-Man's; note I am talking unique to non-comics fans as comics fans have seen everything under the sun). No surprise Spidey is the biggest and h...

Re: Random Thoughts

I looked through my post history and found that I gave a rather long defense of Chuck Austen.

I feel dirty.

Re: CBR’s list of 50 Best Marvel Characters of 2019

Civil War 2 was the worst push a character could get. It managed to be worse for her than Civil War to Iron Man. If Marvel was smart, they'd have pushed more her connection to the X-men when they were making that push, but they were still in the "MUST.DESTROY.MUTANTS" phase. Honestly? Do it now. Le...

Re: CBR’s list of 50 Best Marvel Characters of 2019

This is true. I don't really think any character can reach Wonder Woman status, but I think you can still have a female face of Marvel. Kamala is an excellent choice just for the range she reaches and she's a great character who, unlike Carol, really hasn't been put in a negative light. Which makes ...

Re: Marvel & DC Teen Warp Draft--Side posts and smack talk!

I have my last two warps ready to go. Let's see if I can get there without my hopes being dashed. See, y'all plan your picks out ahead of time. I ask to skip my turn because every round is shooting from the hip. Sometimes when I'm coming up with a character I think of combos for a future pick, but ...

Re: CBR’s list of 50 Best Marvel Characters of 2019

Marvel needs to give up the Captain Marvel experiment and work to push a new female character to be part of their A-List. I recommend Storm, Emma Frost, or She-Hulk. Even before Brie Larson pissed off the worst parts of the internet Carol wasn't a hot commodity. Her runs that did well were sold on ...

Wonder Woman makes sense. She's actually been a real part of DC's "Trinity" pretty much since it's inception.

Re: CBR’s list of 50 Best Marvel Characters of 2019

Putting Magneto over Spidey is blasphemy. Spidey is the most popular hero in the world and Magneto is one of the most inconsistent characters in history. Granted, if the previous statement isn't obvious, I think I hate Magneto more than I hate Dr. Doom. Hulk and Daredevil shouldn't be on a top 10 li...

Re: X-Men #2

The only way to read this story, to me, is that any Earth-based mutant that a writer wants to use is on the table except for Destiny. There's so much open now with the resurrection protocols that previous deaths are meaningless.

I may have missed it but has it been explicitly stated how far back the collecting of the mutant genetic material used for the resurrections began? I know Vulcan died relatively recently but it got my wondering whether we could see the return of characters such as Petra and Sway. I'd have to believ...

Definitely a step up from Solo.

Probably could have done without the stereotypical "I can't do this." "Your ancestors did better than this!" "I can do this in one shot."

He’s writing Kable and Rachel like they’re Franklin and Val and that’s just not (yet) their dynamic.
Yes! This felt like it was two siblings who have spent their lives together and we just ain't there.

Re: X-Men #2

They did mention it, albeit indirectly... You're right. I remember seeing it on my first read, but my second read, mostly focusing on the art, managed to have me glance over it. Kid Cable was raised by Scott until he was 12. And now he's 16 or so. From his perspective, is just seeing his dad again ...

Re: X-Men #2

So far, everything Hickman has written feels like he wrote 100 issues of X-Men, got a preview copy, and just kept going without the comic ever actually being released. These characters are acting like they've been on Krakoa and living as a happy family unit for decades. Neither Kable or Rachel feels...

Re: Fallen Angels #1 *Spoilers*

They have the original Psylocke back. She's the main character in Excalibur... Like, what is there to be upset about Betsy getting her "original body" back? The only thing I can see is maybe an argument for "Asian erasure" since Kwannon isn't nearly as guaranteed to get screentime as Betsy.

Re: Fallen Angels #1 *Spoilers*

Kable confuses me. I didn't read Extermination so my first experience with him was Hickman's X-Men 1 and that felt like no version of Cable I've experienced in my life. This felt much more on point, but then what the hell was going on with Hickman's? Are there just some characters he's incapable of ...
