Re: X-Force #7

I thought there's a tweet somewhere from the author correcting that Colossus did not die? But if he did, and assuming what Rick said was true - that he indeed killed that last reaver, didn't the reaver exploded killing everyone in the healing garden including the healer? So maybe that's how Colossu...

Re: X-Force #7

Or no, wait, it was X-Force? Kate brought him in. I think you're remembering X-Force #1. The Marauders bring a bunch of refugees from Russia, including a very injured Colossus. Peter is taken to the Healing Gardens and Healer takes care of his wounds. Jean looks into his memories to see what happen...

Re: Crisis On Infinite Earths!

To be fair to LimboMaster I also thought that it was really confusing. Watching the following episodes of Supergirl and Batwoman made it even more so. I'll put in spoilers in case anyone cares but: There are a ton of dopplegangers from other Earths. The episode focused on a bunch of Brainiacs that, ...

Am I the only one who immediately raised an eyebrow when Jubilee started explaining British Isles identities to Rictor?

Re: New Mutants #4

I agree that having the stories together would probably work better but my guess is that they're alternating the stories to give the artists time to catch up. Rob Reis is doing the space stuff and Marco Failla is doing the Kentucky stuff. As for the story, I don't hate it as much as some of you (pro...

Re: X-Force #4

This is, by far, the best title of Dawn of X. And I say this as someone who isn't always that enthused with the grimdark approach but when it's thoughtfully done, it works. I love how the title uses different mutants organically. Forge as armorer. Black Tom as sentient defense system/lookout. Beast,...

Last issue with Shinobi was a marked improvement so I thought I should give this title another chance. This issue was a continuous downward spiral for me.

Pretty sure the snippets with the other known characters are just from other movies. With that said, they are obviously in Budapest, so I fully expect Hawkeye will show up. The trailer doesn't look awful but it also doesn't look amazing to me to be perfectly honest. This movie should have come out y...

Nobody has a person of color in the top so far either.

I know that they're usually played by fairly pale white people in the movies, but I always a...

He’s writing Kable and Rachel like they’re Franklin and Val and that’s just not (yet) their dynamic. Yes! This felt like it was two siblings who have spent their lives together and we just ain't there. Isn't that the case though? At least for Kable. Remember, Scott and Jean spent 12 years in the fu...

The problem with Yu's art is that his style makes subtle changes to faces pretty hard to spot. He either has the characters yelling or really angry or extremely neutral. Rachel in particular has this vacant expression that seems like she's on drugs. On the other hand, Hickman's character interaction...

I fully expected this to be the weakest of the Dawn of X titles for me... it was surprisingly decent. It does have some problems though. Whilst I appreciate the attempt of giving Kwannon a backstory but it was pretty stereotypical. I also find the attempt at justifying why she goes by Psylocke, dres...

Re: Hypothetical

I regards to what Rick said, maybe it will help to think of consciousness as not something limited or material, but an unlimited concept, like peace, love, harmony, etc. You can't divide them into smaller parts, you can't copy them, they just are. The clone's consciousness isn't a copy of your cons...

Also, the script describes the Marauders crew a bit differently. Perhaps it was an earlier draft when the teams weren't set in stone yet but they don't have Pyro with them and instead have Sunfire and Polaris (plus Emma and Bishop). If you check the art carefully you can see that the Pyro is an alte...

And Charles‘ drink had something in it, maybe to weaken his abilities. The script says that the drink had a tracker bot on it. That's how they zeroed in on Xavier and he couldn't run away.

I honestly just took that sentence as Scott making it relevant to the person he was talking to (Lorna) and the ones they were talking about before (Magneto and Scott's family).

Re: House of X #6 (SPOILERS)

It is also pretty standard in any ethical justice system to not punish someone for breaking a law when it wasn't made a crime until after the fact. Numerous others present there have done worse. It also appeared the cruel and unusual punishment was just made up on the spot. I don't think the X-Men ...
