Why are there no "Because NO ONE DEMANDED IT!" style blurbs with ANY of the articles I've seen paired with this news? C'mon news sites, that's an easy one!

Anyone wanna guess that it involves "the real Cable" and probably crosses over X-Force and Domino (at least)?

I'm guessing really big guns and Shatterstar making out with a woman.

Liefeld corrected this on Twitter to say he said an EVENT and not a CROSSOVER. This makes me think it might be just a self-contained mini (like Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe or something). That makes more sense than to think Marvel is actually giving him a large role in the X-line next year.

I'm okay with anything that's self-contained and thus completely ignorable. Phew.

I think this is what you meant to say.

Nah, I'm unashamed to say I actually do like his work. A huge part of that is nostalgia, but I've read worse.

Well, I guess Chuck Austen wasn’t available :mrgreen:

I like Liefeld, he is an icon from the 90s and his work in that era has been good stuff.

Sure, if I were to work with him I wouldn’t turn my back on him... :?

BC but nonetheless.

Reviving Cable? https://www.bleedingcool.com/2019/01/07 ... y-returns/

I find the quote, confirming at last what we all saw what was was happening, that Marvel indeed did the X-men injustice deliberately because they didn't have the movie rights more shocking.

Thanks for that, Flapflop. It's pretty obvious now, seeing the return of the X-Men to the forefront and of the FF to, well, anything, that they were not pushing those brands before. And why would they? I never thought they were intentionally trying to crash the franchises. It always read to me that they were simply not a priority and that they wouldn't be using them in merchandising and licensed properties. Especially once Disney got involved. The comics are a drop in the bucket compared to the movies and the merchandise surrounding them.

Exactly...my problem was that people acted like Marvel was intentionally trying to NOT make comic money with a property they owned. The x-books still sold well (and you can hate Bendis but he was their biggest writer at the time) and still had books coming out. But like you said, they just didn’t give it priority, which makes alot of business sense.
