Re: What brought you back?

I started reading when I was a kid, after watching TAS (but where I live the comics were years behind the US in release dates, so the first ones I've read were probably late 80's stuff, plus I had access to some of the earlier ones), lost interest during the mid-late 90's, came back around 2006 or s...

Re: HOX, POX, & some DOX overview

Well, I’ll chime in in support of Milkshakes’ point because you’re missing a core ingredient: cultural norms. You can’t really say how an individual will act when norms change. Yeah, what makes most people decide to keep their relationships monogamous are (not necessarily in this order) cultural an...

Re: X of Swords Creation #1 (SPOILERS)

This was fantastic, even if not everything makes sense yet. The stakes couldn't be higher, but they manage to be have something personal with Apocalypse's children wanting revenger (understandably). I know Bable/Kable isn’t popular here but I won’t lie, there’s something real endearing about seeing ...

Re: Hellions #4

You misunderstand me, I didn't say Shaw should have been killed. It was only Mystique, which they should have known would cause problems because of Irene- she already tried to killed Moira once, after all, and is not someone Krakoa can't really live without.

Re: Hellions #4

I don't think you can say people are too forgiving of former villains- no one in Excalibur seems to have forgotten who Apocalypse is, no one really trusts Sinister, the Marauders clearly dislike Shaw (and now want him dead), and Wolverine openly complained about the villains joining (which doesn't ...

Re: Hellions #4

Oh, Inferno is bonkers, but the good kind. And it's not like the writers were presenting a thoughtful reflection on what's like to have a larger than life figure you're constantly compared to (made even more complex by the fact Cyclops is not someone interested in fame, glory or spotlight), there's ...

Re: X-Men #12

Hickman raised a lot of questions in his F4/Avengers/SW run and, as far as I remember, he delivered the answer in pretty much all of them (whether they were satisfactory or not is subjective, of course). And I feel this has potential to be very interesting- we're essentially hearing about a mutant c...

Re: Hellions #4

When you say it like that, the plot of Inferno sounds like REALLY ridiculous lol... I love comics... The plot of Inferno is, mostly, fine. For all it's problems, it was a good story. However, Maddie's return afterwards, as Cable indicated, didn't add anything; hell, that's incorrect, it detracted f...

Re: Hellions #4

Well, objectively I think: Apocalypse would vote yes to Maddy's resurrection as she is extremely powerful. I resist to believe he would let Maddy become such a waste. Yet he could vote no as well. Magneto would probably abstain as they didnt interact over the years, at all. But he could also vote n...

Re: Hellions #4

Jean's on the council, so I imagine she had some input there. And Storm would 100% back up her best friend. And I imagine the Hellfire side of the council would veto her resurrection completely, given their history, while the villain side likely wouldn't care. Of the 12, I think Nightcrawler, Mysti...

Re: Hellions #4

The issue is that she's got such an insanely complicated backstory that this character is not really the same original Maddie...maybe, being a projection of X-man originally. And she's not the same character that appeared in that Sisterhood arc in Fraction's run...maybe, not to mention her origin is...

Re: Hellions #4

I mean they did triumph though... They just built up Maddy and then to kind of have it all end like that felt like it wasted her. Plus honestly, if you bring back Maddy you at least use her as a big bad. And with alot of things built up in DoX, one offing a big character like her felt like a waste....

Re: Hellions #4

I liked it. It seemed anticlimactic, but that was by design. Not all stories have to end in triumph.

And how was Scott a jerk here? The decision to not bring back Madelyne wasn't his.

Re: Excalibur #10

Marcus To is cool but sometimes I feel his art is way too light hearted and "child-oriented" for the tone of the current Xbooks, including this one. The story continues to be underwhelming for many reasons. 1. Jamie Bradock is, surely, the last person who should be able to take the throne in Otherw...

But on the flipside, right now, at least it's doing something for our local comic book stores.

The people that collect comics can buy the physical copies when the stores reopen. I just don't buy this idea that these people that are so methodical and obsessed with physical copies will quit comics altogether because the digital copies were released first.

Yes, but if Marvel isn't going to sell anything for months because they're refusing to sell digitally only there's no need to get any work done.

Yeah, I don't buy that. Are the people that absolutely refuse to read anything other than physical copies be so angry that they are quitting comics altogether? If they are so stingy and demanding about having floppies in their hands, they're too invested and/or methodical to quit. Besides, between p...

Re: Diamond Halts Comic Distribution

Might not be this week or the next one, but eventually Marvel and DC will just say fuck it and sell the books digitally. Even if they don't want to, which I doubt it, eventually the corporations that own them will order them to stop not making money so to please Diamond and get on with it.

Re: Diamond Halts Comic Distribution

Yeah, I don't believe that. I don't see this overwhelmingly positive reaction with fans, since the majority of them either just buy digital or don't care either way. This is like if movie studios refused to send movies to Netflix because they're afraid Blockbuster will go bankrupt.
