Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

Funny enough it was the same for me - I started reading literally an issue or two before Revolution, so only a year or so before Morrison started. At the time I didn't like it as much as other stuff because it felt so different. Now of course, looking back, I appreciate it much more because it was d...

Re: Dawn of X November Solicits

Adding a 'kid character' for younger audiences to glomp onto is certainly a thing, but there's no way that was the intention behind Maxime and Manon. Zero people went out and bought Extermination just because those two characters were in it. Not much here in terms of new info that wasn't already pre...

Re: Powers of X #2 (SPOILERS)

I find it funny that you guys are all digging into the differences between House of X and Powers of X and my main takeaway after this issue is that they should've just made it one 12-issue maxi-series. :) After all, we still got a scene of the 'present' (assuming the scenes with helmet-clad Xavier, ...

Re: SPOILERS for Spiderman Far From Home

When he dropped that line (referring to the MCU as 616) I just immediately thought of all the headaches that would cause for wikis and the like, but thankfully for them it turned out to be a lie.

Re: House of X #2 (SPOILERS)

Now that someone brought up space; I wonder how does the whole space side of the X-men interact with the whole humans; sentinel; end of the world side of things. For example; What's to stop Moira from eliciting help from some X-men Allies in the imperial Guard/Shiar empire. Surely that must come in...

Re: House of X #2 (SPOILERS)

Yeah I didn't mean to wade too much into the weeds on the Morrison stuff (ignoring totaldarknessin's post, for example) but if you wanna move this elsewhere I understand. Actually, Morrison had mutantkind being the majority only in a 100 years, IIRC. Marvel's reaction had to do with the movie rights...

Re: House of X #2 (SPOILERS)

I always wondered if Morrison knew House of M was coming or if it was another thing that showed Marvel just didn't want to continue with his direction. I've had the feeling that Marvel just wasn't sure what to do with Morrison's "mutants will naturally out-populate humans within 10 years" idea and ...

Re: House of X #2 (SPOILERS)

Seems my inclination that the 616 might not be the 'origin' timeline and instead a repeat was right, just not in the way I imagined, heh. I didn't really want to touch the timeline stuff (especially since others here know it a lot better than I do) but looking at the stuff at the end, it seems WAAAA...

Re: Agents of Shield season six

It seemed like the creators were really in the groove with Season 4 being broken up into definite plot arcs, and Season 5, while it took a bit to get going, ended strong (and I think would've served great as a series finale). So I had some high hopes for this one, especially since it seemed to have ...

Yondu says it's because DH has been getting slow and costing him too much money. A shootout breaks out between DH and Yondu's fembots, and they end up pushing DH into an interd...

Since this issue was almost all backstory/world-building I'm still very much open to seeing where it goes, but I do definitely understand where token is coming from. Hickman had said no time-travel or alt-reality, and while I still think that is technically true and we're looking at some sort of tim...

What a start! My feelings largely echoed InsipidLust's... it feels a lot like Morrison all over again (even picking up the same line about mutantkind naturally taking over/replacing humanity) and just feels like a stronger version of other similar attempts by Magneto, Cyclops and Jean to find a plac...

Re: Omega Level Mutants [HoX/PoX Spoilers]

I've always been fine with the idea of having a ranking scale, especially for those who are comparable - if the mutant ability is strength, for example, it's quite easy to say 'well Colossus can lift X pounds and Forearm can lift Y pounds, so one is stronger.' But when you're making comparisons acro...

You know? I’m surprised no one has ever made that a bigger plot point.

The thing that bothers me is Rosenberg seemed to go out of his way to kill characters that "could not pass as human" which he even basically outright states in this issue. (Never mind that Blindfold could very easily pass as human, at least as easily as Scott could). Or that Havok and Jamie then di...

Well, I for one am definitely surprised that there was no reset here and it seems like everyone who died is still dead (for the moment).

Decent tie-up issue but like most of this event, just felt jumbled and meandering. A lot of the issue is just Nate blabbering on about stuff that sounds deep at first glance but is ultimately meaningless. If anything else, it really does show the downside of a stupid teenager (even though this Nate ...
