Amazing Nightcrawler #3

Synopsis: Mystique tries to leave without giving any answers, but Nightcrawler tries to stop her and a fight breaks out. She escapes but drops a folder containing a photo and info of a Nightcrawler-looking child named Tenia Jean. Nightcrawler immediately gets the feeling she's his daughter. Distract...

Nextgen #3

Look like everyone has really been giving up on AoXM... can't blame 'em. Synopsis: Pixie expresses her concern with Armor's recent behavior while Rockslide and Anole discuss the missing fate of the Life Seed. Armor and Glob corner Anole and inquire about the fire the other night, but Dean Angel brea...

Re: Uncanny X-men #16

The crazy pace this book is moving at continues to be refreshing (even more impressive given the twice-monthly nature). Cyclops steps down as leader, Rahne quits, Hope joins the team, "Magneto" attacks and is revealed to be Joseph, Juggernaut wants to rejoin the X-Men, Kwannon decapitates Joseph and...

Re: Marvel July Solicitation

So sounds like both Uncanny and X-Force are ending (along with Age of X-Man obviously) to clear the deck for the Hickman stuff.

Re: Star Wars: Episode IX

Yeah, my thought on seeing the title was that Rey will become a bigger legend than Luke and company and eventually subsume the name and just become "the Skywalker" to the far-off future. Given the inclusion of Palpatine's laugh in the trailer and that Ian McDiarmid was present at the reveal, I wonde...

X-Force #6

Another expository flashback issue, this time showing how Stryfe and his goons tracked down Kid Cable through time and the Transia connection got started. I admittedly liked this one a bit better than last issue... maybe it's just because the villains are more fun to follow, or that the story works ...

Apocalypse and the X-Tracts #2

This isn't as glaringly awkward/bad as X-Tremists but I definitely don't like it. It's pretty dull and the pacing is really off. Did we really need to see how Kitty got recruited? And then the ending where The Siberian & Friends go from threat to dead, killed off-panel, in the space of a page (and E...

Yeah I don't think it's Karima but definitely looks like Omega Sentinel type uniform/markings. An Omega Sentinel Cassandra Nova would make a lot of sense, actually.

Re: Marvelous X-Men #3

I think this is the best issue of AoXM we've gotten so far (along with the Alpha issue). Definitely needed to get into Nate's headspace as you say (especially by this point halfway through the event), so I was glad to finally get that. That bit on the last page about people still seeing him as the l...

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

Could the character with the giant X helmet be Xavier walking? With the helmet a new version of Cerebro. Yeah that was my guess. I'll like the Magneto costume if it actually has full sleeves this time (can't tell in either of the pictures here). The Cyclops one looks nice, but I agree that I'd be o...

Re: Uncanny X-men #15

I guess my problem is that I don't see how assassinating the politician (especially in such an open way with the MLF attacking) has any good long-term result, if anything it would just further fan the flames against mutants. If she was doing something purely for survival (like blowing up a factory f...

Prisoner X #2

Sadly the cover is a lie and Polaris does not get to let loose. Pretty much no real movement plot-wise (until the last couple pages) which is a bummer, but I'm still liking this ahead of most of the other AoXM stuff. Beast in particular feels like a good take on how someone might change in different...

This was... really, really Liefeld. To the MAXX. It's definitely a bit in on the joke (there's a point where Deadpool faces off against a shoulder-pad wearing Dreadpool for crying out loud) but doesn't read as parody, the characters are pretty much playing it all straight. Art is straight-up "worst ...

Damn, this one was indeed brutal.

It actually had me thinking Hope was dead for a few pages (until they mentioned she was aliv...

Re: X-Tremists #2

Yeah, Moneta is clearly a new character. A quick search turns up that 'Moneta' is a Roman goddess of memory, which relates to her powers, so I'm guessing that's where the name comes from. Nothing to do with Monet, just a coincidence. I do agree though that the author (or editorial) should've probabl...

Ah, I knew I forgot to post about an issue... I haven't really been digging this arc that much, it feels VERY decompressed. The first three pages are just Gambit jumping across buildings, for example. And then a large chunk of it is just Rogue's Greatest Hits. I guess it doesn't help that I'm kinda ...

Basically one big flashback issue to show a bit more about who Kid Cable is and how he got his mission. I certainly wasn't invested in the proceedings (introducing a bunch of characters by name only to pretty much immediately kill them) and the art was kinda crummy... feels like this sort of thing c...

People already giving up on AoXM eh? :P So the cliffhanger from last issue ends up to be anti-climatic, as covering Armor in glob goo does nothing except ruin her hair. But when Anole and Bling turn up the next day without remembering the fire at all, she gets curious. Looks like Glob might end up t...

This continues to be pretty good, I do feel that it's being stretched in a bit in so many directions that almost no one gets the chance to shine, but I vastly prefer that over lazing around on one lame plot point.

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

I want the characters in AoX to 'wake up' and realize what happened, but then continue to be stuck in their own universe. While the Uncanny team (along with the guys over in X-Force) are stuck are the sole X-Men remaining in the 616.

(It'll never happen but it'd be interesting)
