Re: Monolith's Power Descriptions

Couldn't give an accurate estimate for wing lengths. Sorry. Pixie's flight speed has not been measured, more than being subsonic. Banshee and Siryn traditionally are able to achieve the speed of sound in flight. Although it is occasionally claimed in outside sources that their costume "wings" assist...

Re: Monolith's Power Descriptions

Sapphire Styx feeds on spiritual psychic energy. Her touch allows her to absorb energy from victims, draining away their strength and vigor. In exchange, she can speed her own recuperation and has maintained her youth and beauty well past her natural prime. It was suggested that she became supernatu...

Re: Monolith's Power Descriptions

There's really nothing to add to those characters in a PD. The first three are very straightforward. Belasco is a sorcerer and can cast any number of spells, with none being a "signature" spell or magic tied to him specifically.

@RingOtaku: In context, Reed told Hank that in the middle of an argument, where both men were clearly getting heated. A better (if no less humble) quote came when Reed consulted with Hank in FF #546.

Re: Uncanny X-Men #17

I'd say "Jimmy" is Warpath and "James" is Doctor Nemesis.

In order to avoid justifying false information taken from the internet, I'm going to assume "Jonathon" is Gabby's pet wolverine, not Forge.

There's definitely a behind-the-scenes story there, although I don't know what it is. She was basically unused for 20 years, from the end of her series in 1984 until Bendis' New Avengers in 2004. Sure, "Jessica Drew" made appearances here and there, but largely depowered and very rarely returning as...

Not much to say. RoXXon doesn't have a "story" per se -- they're a generically evil corporation in the modern world. There's no "face" of RoXXon like MODOK and AIM or Strucker and Hydra. There have been a number of CEOs or vice presidents over the years, but if they're outted as criminal or corrupt,...

After Baron Strucker died in Strange Tales #158, Hydra splintered beyond the point of effectiveness. You had Viper as Madame Hydra during this time (Captain America #110-113) and a bunch of posers, but not much else. Hydra even degenerated from international terrorists and nihilists down to being a ...

Nothing detailed. He was a normal human being. As his elderly body died, he was preserved as a cyborg. That cyborg body had superhuman strength, speed, endurance, and durability, but no other unique features of note.

She was conceived and carried to term on the Utopian Parallel universe by her natural mothers, one of whom was a native of the Parallel, the other was an extra-dimensional immigrant.

Corvus and Black Dwarf seem to be literal brothers, per the Black Order limited series.

Re: Alien Races - the KREE

It wasn't SO much of a retcon; the Kree were introduced in 1967, and the Pink/Blue Kree racial strife was explicit by 1969. I'm not sure what Ronan looked like in his first appearance -- what copies I've seen of FF #65 suggest he was colored pink in that appearance. However, the Kree next appeared i...

I fully agree that the ideas are not boring, on their own. And if the "Age of X-Man" reality had been presented to us as, say, one of the realms of Battleworld, I could definitely get behind the plot more. If it was its own thing. It's similar to the scenario where Glob, Armor, Pixie and Rockslide w...

Re: NextGen #2

The problem with Age of X-Man is that the stakes aren't clear, and are therefore not engaging. Age of Apocalypse and House of M, from the beginning, ran the theme of "The world is wrong and we need to restore it to normal!" Age of X played like a mystery, with Rogue and Gambit slowly discovering the...
