Re: X-FACTOR by Leah Williams and David Baldéon

I'm excited for the roster and even a bit by the premise but less so by the writer. The only thing I read made by her was that "baking sheet joke" title the x-tremists. That was awful. Not only the jokes weren't funny, they tended to undermine a really good and serious premise. I get that might be p...

Re: GSXM: Jean Grey & Emma Frost

I think the shrinking(I say shaken) look makes more sense. Sure you're mentor strangled his sister in the womb and she's alive is, you know a big deal. Bu in comic world, it's like 'anyway, Chinese for dinner?' But in this instance, Jean learned her best friend in is going to die in 30 days. True b...

Re: X-Men/FF #2

@Rick: You used Xavier as though it was actually Xavier...that’s like blaming Susan for the actions of Malice. Onslaught was created as a direct consequence of Xavier's actions. Malice was provoked by Psycho-Man IIRC. It's not the same. And the point isn't the blame. When you have a history of show...

He then attempted to convince Sue and Reed that Franklin should become one of his students and be with his own kind. Sue wasn't having any of it.

Re: X-Men/FF #2

The only good thing about this story so far is people on Twitter being really heavy-handed with the insinuations that Susan Richards is some kind of racist and anti-feminist.

Hmm. I don’t know a lot of Brian Braddock‘s history, but was he identified as a mutant? I thought he was magically enhanced. Brian has been considered a human. In fact, that was reaffirmed in Excalibur recently (Jamie gave it as a reason to not have any contact with his brother). With that said, hi...

Re: GSXM: Jean Grey & Emma Frost

I'd say the colors in this issue are far superior to Quitely's version. It's a major part of what really makes this art pop and some pages phenomenal. In fact, I'd say that the coloring in some HOX/POX/DOX books has been very impressive compared to what we normally get. However, Quitely had a ton of...

I just question if we should consider the info in it canon (because it was published) or we treat it as spoilers. As for the arm, you pretty much got it.

The only thing I hate is that Krakoa language without subtitles. There wasn't much to translate since it's pretty much the same word over and over. So little in fact, that I can read it easily. I don't know if I should be proud of concerned that I'm starting to be able to read Krakoan. :? It says: ...

Personally what I never understand from reading Maurauders is why don't they just use the Blackbird it has stealth capabilities? does it not still exist? have missed a lot of X-men comics over the years pretty sure they still have the jet. I would suspect she was the X-men mole in the first place a...

Regardless, I think we are looking at some sort of competition/death match/ultimate fight scenario. This is my first guess as well. Maybe something fostered by Apocalypse so that Krakoans can still determine the strong among them (even if the weak keep getting resurrected). It could have something ...

Re: Warning SPOILERS for Marauders #8 - Regarding Kitty

If so it would explain why Kitty was often detected as a mutant (Neo are mutants) but why some more sensitive scans might reveal she's different (Neo are an offshoot of mutantkind making her unique amongst the x-men). It would also mean that this Kitty is the one that we've met at age 13 since the ...

This version of Kitty is dead, but maybe the real Kitty is still out in space having space adventures or something. The Neo i...

Re: Warning SPOILERS for Marauders #8 - Regarding Kitty

The question is, when was Kitty switched and by whom? In the maternity ward... by the Neo. At least that has been a possibility since X-men Declassified #1 issue. It's possible that the Neo are mutant enough to fool most sensors but distinct enough for Krakoa to be able to sense the difference and ...

Jean's not a pod resurrection though. She was brought back by the Phoenix Force. Did you just mean resurrections in general?
She died and was brought back by The Five during HOX/POX at the very least. That was what I meant. Granted she was acting strange even before though.

See that would ride if every title had maybe somebody who did that but so far it feels like (to me anyway) that only the Hickman penned books depict characters who feel regressive. Everybody in X-Force, Marauders, and Excalibur all feel like a continuation of characters we’ve seen before. And the n...

I don't understand the current editorial mandate regarding the costumes. It seems like they were going with previous iterations for everyone. In fact, Chip Zdarsky flat out gives that indication to Terry Dodson in the script for X-men/FF #1 (we can see it in the director's cut). But then, some peopl...
