Re: SPOILERS for Spiderman Far From Home

Mysterio was great (and no, I don't think he's dead). How they tied in former employees of Stark's helping him from previous films was ingenious. I gotta ask though - if everything was faked, including his 'origin', then how did he know the correct number designation for this universe? For didn't he...

Re: Ramifications of [House of X #2 SPOILERS]

Ok wait....her ability is reincarnation but she still 'reads' as being human?

Could that be why Cerebro never detected her?

Re: Future Foundation #1

I liked it, fun with some good action. Nice intros and insight into each character's outlook. Although I would have appreciated more detail on Artie and Leech. I remember them but they didn't even get a tiny name/power description caption box in the beginning. Any thoughts on who the girl prisoner t...

Re: Powers of X #1 (Spoilers)

It is weird because a) This seems like a good story. b) I would rather read almost any other story. Lol there are just elements of this that I really don't like in terms of it being a central title. House of X is definitely the stronger book to me. However I do think part of that is just the functi...

Re: House of X #2 (SPOILERS)

No need. It's been discussed ad nauseam. I only brought it up in comparison to Hickman. I'm trying to determine the difference for myself and I can't quite put my finger on it. With just three issues, Hickman has managed to re-vitalize the franchise in ways that we haven't seen in over a decade, ce...

Re: House of X #1 (SPOILERS)

As some others have mentioned elsewhere, Hickman's characterization can be hit or miss for me. Sometimes he lets the BIG science of it all overshadow the nuances of characterization which is why I was somewhat apprehensive about this. But darn it, he's done it again, drawn me into his epic vision an...

It was said that she was "near Omega level". Of course Bendis also had McCoy describe Malloy as "more than an Omega level" whatever that means. Omega level mutants have unlimited potential but Matthew Malloy has even more than unlimited potential. Wait...so there's a limit on unlimited potential?? ...

Regardless of how it all plays out, death is what Cyclops is facing. From his own vantage point, he's aware that he will die in the future and there's not going to be anything he can do to stop it, because he will have forgotten. Let's not forget about his legacy either. Yes, Tyke may be upset over...

The two kids from the beginning... I kind of get the impression that they’re more important to the story than we think.

I could see mind-wiping/altering Hank, Bobby, and Warren to be happier (or more accepting). But Jean? I'm not so sure. Even if such a treatment worked with her, it seems like it may fade or crack over time given her prowess. A very strong story, an unhappy school reunion that faces hard moral choice...

Re: eXtermination #1

Typically I am very cynical about deaths in comics. However, the two deaths here were extremely effective. Bloodstorm's death was emotionally shocking, especially after her romantic scenes with Scott. The brutality of Cable's death was physically shocking (even as the reveal of young Cable seemingly...

For his part, Slott nailed the characterizations here and I loved the way that he showed the effects of the FF's absence on the general population of the MU. While Zdarsky's story in Two-in-One has been very good, Slott hit some good character notes of his own here, Johnny's impassioned plea to the ...

Based on the flashback, Ainet's prayer rekindled the connection between the hammer and Storm which sought her out back when she was in jail and thus Storm has been able to wield the hammer since despite Ainet's death over a month ago. Again, another decent story highlighting an aspect of Storm's pas...

Hm, it's odd when the best thing that I could say about this issue was Land's art.

This isn’t a redemption story for Havok— inversion wasn’t his fault, and nor was anything he did whilst inverted . He hasn’t been a hero in some time now.

Fair points all with what's wrong with this issue. My biggest gripe is that even when Teen Jean finally scans Jimmy's mind (over Daken and Scott's objections once more), we're not shown what she 'sees' or learns that convinces her to let him go off alone. Yeah, it's an understated given that Jimmy p...
