    This is where you made me think of the glories of a book with Jubilee, Anole, Rockslide, Trance, Loa, and Dust again you know.

    We need to pitch this to Marvel

    or I draw you write

    The results will be the same either way

    So I got volumes 1, 3, and 4 of X-Factor at my seasonal one-day comic convention I go to and after reading through the first trade I have to say I like this story very much. Would it be wise to avoid the 6th volume though? That's the Secret Invasion arc with the Larry Stroman art. I think I have the first two issues of that arc since I was reading She-Hulk at the time and the art wasn't very good to say the least.

    Jim McCann likes writing more than marketing, it seems. Dazzler One-Shot announced

    Allison looks less like Dazzler on that cover and more like the Spaceman Ace Frehley.

    Also, some more Second Coming teasers:

    Are you talking about the shirtless look or Norman Osborn?

    The shirtless, shoeless, X-tattoo on the breast look. All he needs is to sit on the quad with an acoustic guitar.

    I had never read exiles before Parker's run, and I was only vaguely familiar with it because I checked out the wiki after hearing people talk about how awesome Blink was. Someone posted scans from Parker's Exiles #1 in one of the threads here, and I immediately hopped on. That book was fucking wonderful, every issue was always my favorite of its week. It's a shame it was canned, and I hope Parker will be placed back on something I care to read in the near future (Hulk? Thunderbolts? No thx).

    Again, because wasn't he 'dead' both before and after Cable and Deadpool?

    Before, during, and after Cable and Deadpool, basically.

    I can't remember exactly bu Magneto killed him something fierce in Fatal Attractions (ripped him in half). I think his ship brought him back to life at the last second?

    I liked Cable in Cable & Deadpool when he was doing his messiah thing. The whole fighting to change the future schtick is admittedly tired, though, and he could use a new look.

    I wouldn't mind to see Cable shelved for a bit. I just can't see a way to freshen him up, aside from maybe taking on a mentor/team leader roll again. Give him a moment with Nate Grey, a touching goodbye with Hope and Cyclops, and let him go out a hero.

    And, dammit, have him wear the costume with the Captain America shield logo on the shoulder again. I loved that variation.

    If Bishop had simply explained that at the beginning no one would have stopped him! I think they should remove Cable's legacy virus and de-age him so we can have to X-Man's. No I really do.

    I like Cable, but I agree that he'll probably be dying soon. And Hope will be all like "oh no!" and that will become her whole character schtick then then at some point he'll come back for no apparent reason.

    You know, I would really be happy with this line up for X-force going forward. Maybe throw in Ninja Psylocke or Gambit for rounding out the group. Rahne never fit the book, and Warpath though he has been a decent addition has seemed a little forced as a killer. I liked both their subplots, but they tend to side track the book and be sort of shoe horned into whatever is going on at the time.

    We are not low.

    I'm kind of bothered that Rahne got yanked from X-Factor to get put in X-Force so she could murder people and get pregnant, and have Presbyterian guilt over both.

    Rahne has been treated horribly recently. I'd be okay with it being a really unlucky Skrull that never got found out.

    Also, even though it would mean I would have to start reading X-Force again, I kind of think Anole would make a good fit.

    Kyle and Yost are leaving X-Force after Second Coming though and they're like the only people that give a shit about the New X-Men cast.

    I dont know...she is a solid if underdeveloped B player with Ninja skills you could do worse. Not alot of covert ops style females in the X-teams to choose from and a good writer could certainly use the oportunity to remodel her character a bit.

    Well that would be called bad marketing - something generally not desirable for companies that enjoy making money and staying in business.

    it's basically a prelude to the current x-factor. it'll tell you why everyone is where they are right at the start of the new x-factor so, yeah it's helpful. plus it's a fun multiple man story that expands his powers in cool ways.

    I think the main problem with Psylock post-resurrection is that no one's really put her anywhere or done anything with her of note. She's just hanging around the island so people can go "oh look, it's Psylock."

    The most important role she's had since she came back was being willing to kill Cyclops if that shard of the Void got free in his mind. That's it.

    My opinion, put her on the X-Force team and kick Rhane back to X-Factor (or put the she-wolf on maternity leave/give her a miniseries where she goes looking for her baby's daddy). Just do something with her for Peat's sake!
