    Where's Madrox going? Off into limbo, or is he joining a different X-book?

    This Astonishing X-Men arc that finished up today with #47, a nice fun surprise. A good ending, especially for "getting" Cyclops' mind right now when other writers just run with the evil motif. Keep this arc in the back of your mind for future 99 cent sales or half off trades, I think you'll like it, especially if you're a current fan of Uncanny.

    Rachel was captured by Professor Pyg and given a Pyg Mask! ( or the art is just bad)

    I don't hate that art, to be honest

    The people are okay

    but the mansion looks very plain

    It needs more crazy stuff, like we saw in earlier issues

    it bears noting that the school in A&O is very plain to contrast from the mental construct Quentin makes, where like half the story takes place

    I don't hate the art, but I'm not really digging it either. Seems to fall squarely in the bland section of the spectrum.

    As out of the blue as the wedding of Storm and Black Panther, Northstar and Kyle (?) are getting married.

    I think it's cool Marvel is promiting gay marriage

    and other than that don't really care

    so overall, good work there Marvel!

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    While we are on the subject though, seriously, Storm and Black Panther getting married was weird

    I am pretty sure they didn't even know each other before that happened

    Ah well, Ultimate Storm is way better than regular Storm anyway

    There was an issue of Marvel Team-Up or something like that that showed them meeting once as kids, and I know that Priest referenced it in his run at some point when they met again and seemed to be attracted to each other.

    Not a particularly strong basis for a marriage, but whatever.

    Incidentally, are they even still married?

  • AriviaArivia Registered User
    Yep. I *think* she's showing up in FF's trip to Wakanda, and Bendis dealt with it in Storm joining the Avengers.

    "Out of the blue"? They've been together for a while now.

    I'm having the hardest time putting a face to the name. Granted, this might have been during Fraction's Uncanny run that I gave up on, it just seems like something you would want to highlight a bit before the story arc where they get married happens, to make it look less like Marvel is seeing the $$$ after the Archie success.

    hey I also gave up on Fraction's Uncanny... but that was 100% because of Greg Land. If only the Dodsons had been on for more than just that second arc.

    It was highlighted in Alpha Flight!

    And it looks like in all the upcoming Astonishing issues!

    Oh yeah, Alpha Flight, there was an eight issue mini/ongoing/mini. Complete mind wipe leading to Onslaught, ok then carry on.

    And that was my point about the Astonishing issues coming up, by the end of the arc there's a marriage, it's almost as out of the blue as when Millar had The Thing be engaged to a lady who just showed up. But knowing about Alpha Flight now, there's at least some establishment.

    anyways, X-Club #4 was good, and Danger's pregnancy is actually:

    With regards to Northstar's marriage, my first reaction was, "Who cares? Is this newsworthy? The second-string superhero marrying his boyfriend?"

    Then I realized that the Donna Troy/Terry Long marriage was probably a big deal back in the day, too. So, I guess it's fine. Liu's a really good writer, so I hope she sells a whole bunch of issues with this.

    Talk about a 90's vibe.

    X-Treme X-Men huh?

    You know, if DC said that they were reviving a 90's (I think?) book then I might be worried

    But Marvel has been doing so great recently that I can't help but be interested!

    If they do X-Treme X-Men again, the only thing I ask is that they bring Sage back.

    That was retconned out by Hudlin.

    Yeah I mean X-Force was something I considered hilariously 90s and look how that has turned out

    I will wait on the creative team/roster of XXM before I make any judgments

  • AriviaArivia Registered User
    the weird thing is that all of these titles are launching in July. I'd figure Marvel would wait until after AvX was over for new series and stuff.

    Remender actually said in an interview that he was a big Sage fan and had sort of planned to bring her back in Uncanny X-Force, but realised that he didn't have to space in the book to give her the story that he wanted to tell, so he held off on it. Which makes me think that maybe this will be a Remender book and that maybe we will see Sage either in that or in the future of UXF.

    I think she ended up in otherworld when last we saw her (in the Exiles fortress maybe?) which is where UXF are right now. So, you know, we'll see.

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla The Year 198X Being Xtreme to the MaxxRegistered User regular
    I really doubt Remender would be writing two X-Books on top of his already big workload

    She became the Exiles' fortress. Or the Siege Perilous. Or something. She's a castle now. :rotate:

    I doubt it too

    I am just relaying on some info I heard

    My only experience of Sage is her minor appearance in New X-Men and her time in New Excalibur

    But I liked her a lot from those comics

    Hopefully she will return soon

    I think she'd be a great fit for Uncanny X-Force, personally. Another woman on that team wouldn't go amiss either

  • FuruFuru Registered User regular
    Sage is awful but I guess someone could redeem her

    I just don't think that's going to happen here

    X-Men Legacy #263 was basically Hope indicting Wolverine on his entire side of Schism. You lost, bub.

    huntresssig.jpg
  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    Legacy 263 was great this week

    I am so glad that I went back and read through the whole run

    Rogue never really interested me before, but now I think she is pretty cool, and the cast of that book is pretty great, with Frenzy and Rachel and so on. Cool times!

    I am loving how all the x-books are inter-related right now but they all have their own themes and interesting stories. Benefits of such a wide range of characters to use, I guess.

    Anyway, right now I am getting six x-books? I think? UXM, UXF, WatXM, Legacy, Gen Hope and X-club. Damn you Marvel!

    shit yeah they did

    WatXM was also fantastic this week. I love that book so much. Bobby is the target of quite a bit of affection!

    Like I said, they are doing a different thing with each book and I approve. The fact that they are all great is a very impressive achievement on Marvel's part.

    I'd be cheating myself if I didn't get them all
