The Next Step in Evolution: X-Men

Post by Red Strings » 26 Sep 2021, 17:35

Okay, so that's not the real title. So basically about ten (fifteen? - longer?) years ago, I started planning basically my own Ultimate universe - there's been a lot of stops and false starts but I've actually finally finished writing the first arc (I started seriously writing it again over lockdown last year).

If anyone's actually interested in reading it, I've put it on uncanon.com (which in itself was a labour of love and reminded me fondly of my teenage years writing X-M and for the 617 if anyone here remembers that far back hahahaha).

Anyway, I feel like I should give more background to this but I feel that's for a later time so, instead, I present the first issue:

Thanks for posting this. So far, it looks very interesting; more grounded in reality and certainly grittier, focusing on mutants having to live on the outskirts of society. Alot of moving pieces and it looks like we haven't yet met most all of the principle cast. Tony Stark as a (presumed) bigot is going to be divisive, lol.

Ah I have been missing for a very long time and I totally forgot I'd posted this - which kind of sucks on me. EphemeristX! Thank you so much for the comments, and thanks for reading! I really appreciate it.

You're very right in that we haven't met most of the principle cast - we actually won't really much this arc - which is primarily world building and set up because I'm stupid and drawn out like that.

The thing is, yes, this arc is pretty gritty but my actual future plans are more akin to an updated (but also kind of not) version of the 90s cartoon, like that kind of tone and atmosphere but more... adult I guess?

Either way, I have #2. My intention is to release one a month (I'm a bit ahead at the moment) but we'll see how that goes because I am nothing if not forgetful.

X-Men #2: The Base Beyond the Pines (G is for Genocide part 2)
A young woman sees a future that she can't escape, a young man has a past he can't find, Jubilee can't stop setting things on fire and, deep in the White Mountain National Forest, a troubled man hatches a plan that could spell doom for mutants and human alike.

Oooookay, so synopsis' (synopsi?), teasers whatever, are really not my strong suit.
