    A fan asked the writers for "teasers" on their books. "Dogs will attack other dogs," joked Morrison.

    Johns: "After Sinestro Corps, I'm doing a story called the 'Alpha Lantern.'"

    Dini: "Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, crime bosses of Gotham City.

    Busiek: "Bottle City. Not the one you think."

    Apparently the direction of the X-Men is switching from that of a family to an army with the upcoming Messiah Complex event.

    Theres been all kinds of info related to Ultimates to infer its quality. Aside from Loeb being the writer, its already shown he has no idea how to write Ultimate versions of hte characters and has decided to simply revert them to their 616 counterparts. Hes responsible for Thor's return to norse speak with the verily's and thous and so on. He as much as said he doesnt care for the political overtones of the series that Millar did and wont bother writing something like that. He just said in the panel he cant be bothered writing longer then 6 issue stories and wont try to make a overarching story, keeping it similar to his Superman/Batman. When asked why they were reverted to 616 looks, he just says "well Scarlet Witch's mother made her that way" as his reason. Every single thing he says about the book is pathetic and he hasnt written a good book since For All Seasons. The rest are just colour books (blue, grey, yellow, etc) or year one follow ups that prey on nostalgia and basically build / retell older peoples stories. You may enjoy them, but they are far from great books.

    Tying in a "big" crossover for the Ultimate Universe with two non related books like Ultimatum is doing is stupid and wreaks of 90s crossover as well. Why coudlnt they just tell it like a normal crossover in its own mini like Ultimate Galactus trilogy or Ultimate War or Ultimate Six or so on.

    Well, one side I will mourn the Ultimates, on the other hand, I will be able to add All Star Superman in my pull list.

    I´m taking bets on how many issues of vol3 will come out per year, with "Battlechasers" Joe drawing it.

    I don't think Cyclops has enough personality to have his own book. He needs people to lead. Or at least Jean.

    He has a ton of personality, it's just writers hardly use it.

    AXM is a good example of how to do him correctly.

    But what kind of situation could necessitate him going off on his own?

    Maybe an exploration of his life before the school, in the orphanage? That's seldom covered.

    Well, he's supposed to be heavily involved in Messiah Complex, and is the rallying point for the X-Men in it apparently.

    Maybe something shocking happens and he needs to do some soul searching.

    I'm actually pretty excited about The Captain Marvel mini. Yeah, his ressurection was un-needed, but they are explaining it very well. Hell, he's not even ressurected. He's still dead. He's a "copy" of Marvel yanked from the time stream right after being exposed to the gas that gave him cancer. He still died in his bed surrounded by heroes.

    Plus, McGuinness on covers.

    Mine was punched into re-existance.

    and my great grandma was brought back to life by her misguided godlike friend.

    Oh and then there's the uncle who had some weird stasis where he was dead but not really. He got a mullet.

    Id put Beast as the one to get his own series. Probably going to end up doing some drastic stuff with Dark Beast and be removed from the team once they find out. Solo book for a bit would be good to show insight into his mind and deal with the ramifications of his actions (or clean up any shady deals he made) while the X-Men move forward post-Messiah.

    Uggggh, I just got the Bad Signal email about this. I'm a pretty big Ellis fan and even I think he is among the worst possible choices to write this book. X-Man is all about being able to write individual characters well, and all of Ellis's characters sound like the same person; smartass Warren Ellis. How many pages into the issue will we get before Xavier addresses the team as his freaky filthy things? I'm guessimating one.

    Everything non creater-owned thing Ellis has written for the big two has been terrible with the exception of Nextwave and Extremis. I'm going to check out the book because I know he will definitely take it in an interesting/original direction, but the dialogue is going to be so fucking painful to read.

    I originally thought the same as you, but when you wrote this:

    I changed my mind completely. Now I am totally in favour. I also predict that he will start wearing glasses with mismatched lenses and refer to himself as Magical Truthsaying Bastard Xavier.

    Do stale nachos have their own smell? I would think the rotting cheese would cover up the chip smell, leaving only cheese.

    I guess I could kind of see the Kitty - Buffy analogy there, although Kitty isnt a teenager anymore and she's not nearly as jaded as adult Buffy was.

    None of those other descriptions fit any of the other X-Men in that book though.

    Yes on the first.

    Cyclops has always been the wizened paternal figure, so Whedon didn't do that.

    Wolverine has always been a bit simpleminded, but the whole "A Blue Moose!" stage was too funny for me to care about any cliches and it had a good excuse for humor.

    Cyclops is a paternal figure to who.

    Hell Wolverine is closer to that than anyone else.
