    More fake-British: Emma Frost or Madonna?

    Emma pulls it off better, and Madonna is just insufferable. So ... They are both awful.

    Wait

    even if Emma was British and upper class

    upper class British women don't just walk around in their underwear

    None of those characters except psylocke really interest me and I am already reading six x-books so probably give that a miss

    Domino is a character that I've only read a couple of books that she cameod in and I've never gotten a sense of any personality besides "girl with guns"

    Yeah same here

    Pixie is somewhat fun

    I find Storm kind of dull, especially compared to Ultimate Storm

    Psylocke is cool though

    The only thing I've read with her in it where she displayed the kind of personality you're talking about was X-Force: Sex and Violence and the Deadpool/X-Men crossover that happened a year or so back. When writers pay attention to her and give her some of the spotlight, she's actually a pretty fun character, but she's just relegated to the background or supporting roles so often it almost doesn't matter.

    If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten in your presence.

    Domino was the one in Cable and Deadpool, right?

    She wanted to bone Cable
    I can respect that

    X-Treme X-Men sums up Marvel's thinking right now. You had a good, nice story arc in Astonishing X-Men dealing with multiverse mutants, and it's worth coming back to, in say a year or two. And now they make it an ongoing with a c-list mutant from our world that will be Exiles junior. I liked Exiles for what it was through Winick and Austen's run, but it kind of ran it's course by the time Bedard took over, and never had the magic since then. Add to it we have more X-Men books now than we did 10 years ago (especially with double ships), there's no real place for the book right now, and it will probably suffer the same fate as the last Exiles book did.

    Brian Wood on X-Men still doesn't make the book seem relevant to me, and David Lopez being bumped from New Mutants over to adjectiveless just increases my odds of dropping that book now.

    Come on Furu, don't be silly. I like quite a bit of the X-stuff post Schism, doesn't mean I can't say what has viability and what doesn't.

    Seriously

    you can't be happy that there is a cool little series coming out that involves a fun take on some characters?

    No it has to be THIS IS GOING TO BE CANCELLED IMMEDIATELY AND EVERYTHING IS DEPRESSING

  • TexiKenTexiKen it's a one way street, whichever way I go Registered User regular
    There's being happy or excited for a new book or concept, and then there's realizing a concept needs more than just a four issue arc in the third or fourth x-men book to actually be viable, otherwise you run the chance of losing it completely. Save the overreaction and look at the June list for X-Men books, and this is just after we've had a cull of a few titles:

    Uncanny X-Men
    Wolverine and the X-Men
    X-Men
    New Mutants
    Wolverine
    X-Factor
    Uncanny X-Force
    X-Men Legacy
    Astonishing X-Men

    That's 9 books a month in June, half of which will be double shipping. Honestly, is that the best market to put this title out in?

    wowsmm_zps1010c3b6.jpg
  • FuruFuru Registered User regular
    so what

    If it gets cancelled it gets cancelled. Obviously I don't want that to happen but it's not going to stop me from buying a book I want to.

    You know what really hurts books? When people act like they're cancelled before they even begin.

  • TexiKenTexiKen it's a one way street, whichever way I go Registered User regular
    I would prefer it have a better chance of making it then just sending it out into a market where it gets ignored, and Marvel take it the wrong way like I could argue they have done with other books. Wait and see for a healthier market, like Marvel has done that for the Dr. Doom mini and the Destroyers mini.

    In roughly a year, have Pak and McKone come back and do another four issue arc about these guys (if they don't kill Cyclops in AvX), and see if there is still interest. Then try a mini series or something.

    There's actually a Domino mini-series, by Joe Pruett and Brian Stelfreeze, that's pretty awesome. I'll see if I can dig it up out of my longboxes, and scan some of it.

    I didn't pick it up, but I've heard it's enjoyable and looks pretty from everyone who has.

    I thought Season One was great Tex, I recommend picking it up if you have the chance.

    cool cool cool. I'll put it in my quarterly amazon shopping, as at that price it works. I've seen some stuff that says it pulls a First Class and tells stories on the side to what already happened, which perks my interest more than a retelling.

    Anyone else thinks the X-Men will lose out in AvX? I'm a huge X-Fan and I hate the idea that the X-Men will get jobbed to the Avengers.

    The main reason i think this will happen, Marvel owns film rights to Avengers so why not pump them up as much as they can. And they don't for the X-Franchise and probably won't for a long while. I'm probably thinking crazy.

    Yeah, this. Seemed like this is a valid question that just sort of slipped by.

    Is that meant to be a real Cthulu, or Marvel equivalent? Is there something with Namor going on still? HYDRA? I don't follow X-Men.

    I think the X-Men will ultimately lose in the grander scheme of things (like how Civil War had the losers be the real winners and the winners were nazis, spurred on by Captain America being shot with a time bullet).

    Something having to do with the phoenix force and Hope, but no specifics yet.

    About $3.99 an issue for a summer event combining the Avengers and X-Men for the first time since House of M.

    From the AvX #1 preview, it looks like the Phoenix is coming to earth, presumably to find it's host, Hope, the only mutant to be born since M-Day. It seems Captain America wants to get everyone to go destroy it before it arrives and seemingly kills everything. Cyclops, in some off characterization created for this event to create a wedge, wants to harness the Phoenix to bring the x-gene back. And cue the fighting, possibly over the Avengers taking Hope by force, against her will, Cap doesn't like being challenged, etc. We don't know that yet.

    And then you have the big elephant in the room that is Scarlet Witch, the lady who literally changed reality and erased mutants because she's crazy, just sitting on the sidelines showing a possible double standard in how the Avengers are taking this stand on Hope and the Phoenix compared to fighting to let Wanda not face punishment by the X-Men.

    I really don't think Scott wanting to bring back the X-Gene by any means is off characterization

    he has been placing mutant interests over the general welfare of the world for years now, and a chance to reignite the mutant race is something he would definitely jump at, especially with the X-Men being more powerful than ever before and in a better position to actually handle the Phoenix

    And the Scarlet Witch is completely the double-standard. Luckily, I believe Wanda will be a part of AvX.
