    I don't think Aaron cares much either.

    It's Sabertooth! He's here! Go fight!

    Wolverine 300 - 304 is the arc, with 304 coming out next week. But it's probably the weakest arc of Wolverine that Jason Aaron has done.

    Yeah but that doesn't mean it is a bad arc

    Aaron writes a fucking great Wolverine so even if it isn't on par with some of his other stuff it's still pretty damn good

    Brand is dating Beast. But I think it's more Gillen having a hard-on for SWORD and really trying to force that connection in Uncanny so far.

    But... the Avengers are with the X-Men there.

    I want to know why the wide shot doesn't show anyone behind Cyke, but the inset shows Spider-Man and Hawkeye behind him. Where did they come from?

    Actually, the more I look at that page the more questions I have, so I'm just going to stop.

    Thanks for the Sabertooth answers all.

    So much for magic katana decapitation.

    Yes the Avengers are helping the X-Men contain a breakout from SWORD's orbiting thing

    so the fact that Brand and Cyclops decide it is a great idea to just cut out the Avengers then is the dumbest thing

    I looked up the preview and found the method of extracting Hope amusing.

    Yeah, it's still good and has some good plots ideas, but the execution just feels off. Like Jason Aaron got a new set of toys to play with and got bored with Wolverine. I was hoping for some crazy awesome finale that tops everything before it, like he did when he finished with Ghost Rider.

    You would have thought that Scott would

    y'know

    ask the Avengers for help protecting mutants

    seeing as they are cool dudes who would probably be like "sure"

  • TexiKenTexiKen Oh, no. And that's that.Registered User regular
    Last time Cyclops wanted the Avengers help, they wouldn't answer their cry for Justice! so that's probably why he doesn't want their help now. They'd side with that SWORD robot thing and say Hope was asking for it.

    Some Gambit book or mini in August 2012. Not gonna post the image, because it's just the purple logo on black with August 2012.

    Don't know if it's connected to the Fraction/Aja thing, Newsarama thinks so, could just be another book announced this weekend. Unless it's a Purple People Eater team book with Hawkeyes, Gambit, Citizen V and Psylocke (and Machine Man!). I think Gambit works better as a member of Legacy than giving him another solo series; he gives off the aura of needing to be a loner like Wolverine but he's got nothing to really explore outside of the Thieves Guild.

    The ongoing Gambit had years ago, that was just about him hanging out in New Orleans, and stirring up trouble with his various criminal associates, was pretty good.

    Really, if they just turned it into Criminal: X-Men Edition, I'd be cool with it. Just a crime comic, set amid the craziness of the Marvel U, with a cool, witty protagonist to lead the whole thing. I think you could get a lot of mileage out of simple go-there, steal-that plot arcs, utilizing some of the interesting characters and locales, of the Marvel U.

    Then Fantomex shoots Gambit, takes over the book, and everyone is happier

    A Fantomex mini is really something that would make sense, by Remender, just to give his history. A mini, nothing more.

    I honestly wish someone would just kill Gambit off.

    Gage is using him for some good effect over in Legacy for a whole bunch of love triangle stuff.

    Legacy is basically Rogue's Soap Opera, and he fits really well into that.

    Gambit was the only good thing about the X-23 ongoing series, despite the creepy flirtation going on between him and Laura the whole time. I like him in Legacy, but he really hasn't gotten much screen time post-Schism. A new ongoing for the character would be cool, but I'd rather see him, Cyclops, Havoc, and Zombie Vulcan form a Summers Brothers Boy Band.

  • ElderlycrawfishElderlycrawfish Registered User regular
    All the good boy bands have 5 members.

    So toss Adam-X the Xtreme in that list.

    (I haven't been following this stuff in a while, is that dude still around/useless as ever?)

    Also Fear Itself, for a panel. He was one of Cyke's gajillion failed plans to stop Juggernaut. ("Plan worse than ineffective: unstoppable Juggernaut temporarily turned into unstoppable Juggernaut on fire." Or something to that effect.)

  • ElderlycrawfishElderlycrawfish Registered User regular
    Hahahaha

    Kind of want to pick up Fear Itself now just to see that.

    I think that happened in the Uncanny Xmen FI tie-in just so you know.

    There's something about Adam X's goofy 90s x-tremeness that makes me love him.

  • ElderlycrawfishElderlycrawfish Registered User regular
    Adam-X the X-Treme Pottymouth.

    So glad he didn't turn out to be a Summers.

    Would Adam-X have really been worse than Vulcan?

    I have his one-shot sealed up tight in the bottom of my box because it is so damn x-treme (and one of the first comics I bought).

    Captain America: Reborn came pretty close. I mean it wasn't a terrible story but just so sub-par compared to the brilliance of his early Cap work.

    I never read SWORD, but this Unit guy, he's kind of a Marty Sue villain that needs to be dialed back a bit.

    Uncanny #10 was good, but it felt like it had to rush the story along because of those AvX tie-ins we can't get enough of, Pacheco can't even draw two issues in a row without fill-in help (again), and while I liked the Brand/Cyclops scene (will Beast get all huffy about that?), the book tries to show that the team is falling apart, and you just can't do that right before we get into an us vs. them event that needs to have both sides going at each other in a rather fair strength of roster type thing, you know?

    And one thing from the teaser in issue #1 is revealed,

    The ending to this month's Wolverine was pretty great.

    It just pushes all the right buttons I say.
