    Just because it happens doesn't make it appropriate. Take Dwayne McDuffie, didn't he basically get fired from DC for talking too much shit about them on message boards? I have zero problem with that... if you're having a dispute with your employer you don't do it in front of the customers.

    I'm happy they're not ignoring Nate Grey. Now re-resurrect Synch (I hear he was briefly active during Necrosha), and keep him around, dammit!

    Howard the Duckula?

    (The joke was that "spout shit on message boards before getting the full story" is pretty much what ever comic fan does when something they don't like is announced)

    Lots of X-Men news

    In short:

    -A new X-Men series to be launched by Victor Girschler and Paco Medina, with the mutants vs. vampires thing.

    -X-Force to be canned after Second Coming, to be relaunched by Remender and Opena as New X-Force (seriously guys, a moratorium on putting "New" in front of titles, ok?)

    -Wolverine: Weapon X to be canned only to be relaunched as "Wolverine" with Aaron still writing

    -X-23 gets an ongoing by Liu

    -Dark Wolverine to be renamed Daken: Dark Wolverine

    -X-Men Legacy is still safe, Carey is still writing (phew)

    -While Portacio is to be new Uncanny artist, whether this is kicking Land off the book (please please please) or the Dodsons (no no no) hasn't been established yet.

    -Nightcrawler has a "huge role" in Second Coming (ie he's going to bamf himself into a coffin know what I'm saying?). He's also not in the promo covers for X-Men #1 shown at the panel.
    A fan said he was worried about the return of "shallow" '90s stories, given the character selection of the new X-books. Schaefer said that what's happening in the X-books is very organic, while David said that writers choose characters because they think there's a story to tell. "I brought Shatterstar back because I wanted to give Rictor something to do," David said, to applause and laughs.

    The line just needs better stories right now to get people interested, instead of a 90's glut of X-titles just thrown out there.

    And now a teaser for New X-Force:
    nxf.jpg

    It looks like
    Wolverine
    Archangel
    Fantomex
    Psylocke
    Deadpool

    I've been enjoying the X-books I've been reading since Messiah Complex but I haven't read them all. Uncanny, Cable, X-Force, some of Legacy and that's it.

    You're probably right about Archangel but I can kinda picture Magneto being the blacked-out flyer in the teaser too.

    I think that's Hope, not Fantomex. I heard a rumor from the guy at my comic shop that they will be revamping X-force as her personal bodyguards as opposed to a dedicated black-ops hit-squad.

    Ooo that sounds like an interesting change for X-Force. I wish I was more up to date on my X-related stuff, I think I need to read X-Force and Cable.

    I don't really like it. Kind of an extremely passive role that doesn't allow them to do much, unless
    Hope has some kind of mission that requires her to globe trot with X-Force at her side.

    Well that's the automatic assumption I made... as opposed to
    them just sitting outside her room while she passes the time between being attacked by updating her myspace page and tweeting Pixie.

    If it is a passive thing then yeah, that would be lame.

    And it's not a passive thing. Their mission is to

    That would help explain if that's Deadpool, doing it for his hetero life partner Cable.

    More New X-Force Details

    Highlights:
    - Apocalypse is coming back and his horsemen may be hiding amongst the X-Men. New X-Force is tasked with stopping him without tipping off his spies.

    - "Only one other has any previous connection to X-Force, but they're all A-list characters. They're big, heavy hitting characters and as the story progresses we're going to see more and more of them. It's a dream team."

    - “One of the themes of 'New X-Force' will be that duality of character. We have a lot of characters on the team who are the same in that sense. They have an inherent duality, people who very much want to do good and make the world a better place, but at the same time there is blood on their hands and they find themselves at cross purposes,"

    So, did they ever explain the whole "We are X-Men" promo pictures? I thought the explanation was promised for yesterday.

    I really hope not, because it is too obvious.
    I really don't want it to be Archangel. Gambit I don't care. Also don't forget that Wolverine was a Horseman as well

    Yeah...Apocalypse kind of peaked with 'Age of Apocalypse'. Ever since then, he's fizzled.

    What if Apocalypse is actually a much older version of Cable, and that the reason Cable hate Apocalypse so much is because he doesn't want to become Apocalypse? It's totally Kang, y'all.

    I liked Apocalypse and his role in the Messiah War, plus isn't part of him now based off of Warren Worthington's personality since it was Archangel that revived him in order to take on both Stryfe and Bishop?

    Apocalypse works much better if he is an actual threat and every time he gets beat without much of a fight it lessens the threat He should only be used as a behind the scenes player and for major events.

    Now people working on his behalf are another thing entirely. And I could easily see him being interested in Hope, so bring on the Horsepeople of Apocalypse (at least one has to be female...)
