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)

Re: Captain Marvel

Finally saw it. I thought it was decent-to-good, maybe in the B-/C+ range. Most of my issues stem from what I felt was a weak script. The way it's set up in non-linear fashion does make for an interesting mystery as to her past, but once its put together things become pretty formulaic (and the end f...

Re: X-Force #4

Damn you lying cover!

But yeah even Warpath's 'death' didn't feel like enough of an event to justify the cover.

Glad to see them remembering Rachel being taken and working that in.

Re: Uncanny X-men #13

I certainly like the (ostensible) direction of the remainder squad cleaning up loose ends in an effort to prepare for a world without X-Men... seems like the pragmatic approach Cyclops and Wolverine would take. It is a bit weird that Dark Beast, who they had just seen die (and yes, DB, Cyclops was t...

Re: Prisoner X #1

This one is definitely the most interesting of the minis so far. On the surface it seems like a fairly straightforward "hero starts to remember the other world and finds the others who also do" story, but there's hints that there's something more going on here. Dani for one, she's very obviously sti...

Re: Cyclops's Hit-List

Dark Beast just showed recently in Uncanny X-Men #1 (Bishop was keeping eyes on him). I assume the New Brotherhood would be Magneto's new group that showed up at the end of X-Men Blue, which was Magneto, Toad, Exodus and Marrow. But yeah, certainly a lot of entries on this list that don't really mak...

Re: X-Tremists #1

The uniforms for Blobby are a nice touch to some „political movements“ here in Europe... :( Yeah I couldn't help but think of that when I saw his character design too, shirtless with suspenders, especially on the cover where his iced-up look lacks hair and makes him look even more like a skinhead. ...

Re: X-Force #3

I think the art works really well for some characters (I like how Deathlok looks, and LOVE how Ahab looks) but I'm not a fan of how characters like Sam are drawn, personally. So there's good and bad for me. Overall I'm enjoying the book though, it's nothing earth-shattering but BC said it well that ...

Re: Astonishing and Whedon opinion

I thought Whedon's Astonishing run was more universally praised at the time, especially here on the boards. Maybe I'm just remembering things wrong. I remember being grumpy about the whole thing because of the reversion post-Morrison and the weird up-in-the-air Kitty status, like literally having h...

Re: Astonishing and Whedon opinion

I've been meaning to re-read Whedon's Astonishing run so this'll be something to keep in mind I suppose, though at first glance it seems like that opinion is bogus. I don't see how the heck Colossus can be a self-insert. FWIW I'm about halfway through watching Firefly for the first time and none of ...

Re: Return of Wolverine #5

Well its not a retcon. The wandering Wolverine, who was popping up in sorta after-credit scenes was never meant to be this resurrected Wolverine. It’s a lil convoluted but our Logan basically goes from here to the Infinity Watch story to Uncanny X-Men. Now whether he keeps the hot-claws after his L...

When Wolverine was in his mindscape with all of the other Wolverines. Who was the female Wolverine in the top right? Is that supposed to be X-23 or Storm? Good question... there's also another female in the top left/center who's face we can't see, and Cyclops and Gambit are there for some reason to...

I didn't like last issue, but this one brought me back a bit. I was really worried the Longshot thing was going to be a real plot but instead it was just a fake-out. Which I suppose would be lame if you liked that and hoped it would be real... This arc has definitely felt very decompressed and slow ...

I usually roll my eyes at having the "one character who remembers everything" trope, especially when they're created for the plot (coughLaylaMillercough) but at least Glob is a pre-existing character and I can buy that his unique physiology would protect him in this way. Also I really liked how it s...

Re: Uncanny X-men #11

Psylocke's death I think was just to create stakes and make Vargas an imposing villain. Basically an extreme Worf Effect. Same for the New X-Men killed by K/Y and Loa here, which I'd agree were badly handled. Colossus' and Jean's deaths I think were attempts to move things in a new direction. In Col...

I find it interesting that while under Brisson's pen in the Annual, Cyclops seemed to rejecting his prior actions as wrong (or at least flawed) and moving back to his more heroic incarnation. Whereas here under Rosenberg he's picking up right where he left off, lashing out (deservedly) at people and...

Good issue, though I'm hoping the author can handle the plot since it's getting more complicated in a hurry with both Ahab and the other mysterious future guy involved.
