    985540129ud7.jpg

    those 1911-type guns from the Hitman games
    eyebrows
    something around the mouth area that looks a huge moustach
    crazy diabolik eyes
    oh
    and a cock bulge huge enough to make captain marvel feel funny

    Ugh, Fantomex is a terrible character and looks like a GI Joe reject.

    His power is that he has a spaceship.

    How so? He was one of my favorite things about that run. I loved the idea that a European superdude would take after all the Euro comics about super-thieves, super-spies, etc.

    I just didn't enjoy him. It might be because prior to reading the arc I had heard tons of "OMG FANTOMEX IS JAWSOME!" and then when I actually read it he just didn't live up to the expectation.

    Fantomex isn't really that awesome... or... I mean the idea is that he was engineered to be a badass comic-book character, essentially.

    Also: not really European.

    I thought he was basivally Fantomas - a European character co-opted by Marvel.

    Fantomex was fucking awesome.

    But then I actually liked Magneto going drug-crazy and actually being completely evil for once so maybe I'm weird but I just loved all of New X-Men

    The dream is dead, Charles. Probably the greatest line of all time.
    And then wolverine just all kinds of decapitates him fuck yes

    Yes but the character Fantomex was grown in The World. He's not really European. He's speaks with a French accent because he thinks it sounds cool.

    I liked the run and hated the retcon of Xorn but having the guy with the metal skeleton kill Magneto has always irked me

    every magneto vs wolverine fight should end with wolverine having the adamantium stripped from his bones and squeezed out through his pores
    (without the ensuing crazy feral wolverine and 90s outfits)

    Yeah, I ignored all of the immediate retcons by not reading what came afterwards.

    I think it kind of made sense since Magneto was a bit distracted at the time

    Personally i'd be happy if every wolvie vs Magneto fight ended with Wolverine just automatically lying down on the floor with his hands behind his head. He's been attacking the bloke for so long he should know exactly whats going to happen by now.

    The whole run was pretty horrible. Seriously. Grant Morrison raped and killed Magneto and peed on his corpse. The ensuing retcons and following comics were not amazing or anything, but they were needed.

    Tim Bradsheet is the best cover artist of all time, though. ALL of his Punisher comics were amazing.

    I didn't see the need for it, at least not as soon as they occurred. I wouldn't have minded a few years without a Magneto to feel the effects of it. And didn't they make Xorn a real, different character? because that was retarded; he worked so well as the plot device that he was.

    Wasn't The World in Britain, though?

    Yes/no/maybe. It doesn't matter, from what I remember. The World was completely self-contained. It was its own reality.
