    Lots of neat stuff in these solicits; more on the Noir books, a new comic by Stuart Moore, Meggan in Captain Britain/MI 13, Secret Invasion: War of Kings, and a Captain Britain Omnibus. Hell yeah. Now where's my Excalibur Omnibus?

    edit: However, this pretty much sums up why Spider-Man's unreadable for me in his current status quo. Bad enough that OMD and BND were totally weak sauce, but Marvel just can't stop rubbing it in our faces just how wild and classic! his current status is. Haha, lookit that Peter Parker! Out on the town with two ladies? How'll that work?! He's like that Archie kid, he is! I bet there'll be shenanigans, oh yes, shenanigans will abound! Oh, and who's that drawing the cover? Why, it's classic Spider-Man artist John Romita Sr! Golly! Check out those funky digs those hep cats are'a sportin'! Looks like they're gonna boogie on down to the disco to get their groove goin' and their mojo workin'!

    I wonder what his powers will be.

    Oh god, what if he has both of his parents? Can you imagine, one baby becoming many, and those many babies sonic screaming at the top of their lungs?

    Edit: That is to say, if his powers manifest at birth or soon after if he even has them. Which would be highly unlikely, but I don't know!

    Madrox had his powers at birth. This is because (according to some continuity) he's not actually a mutant.
    Oh gods, that was so stupid. It's the same shit as the eternal wolfman in Wolverine's, and the son of a demon in Nightcrawler's backstories

    Although, in fairness: it's always been a part of both Madrox's and Nightcrawlers' history that they had their powers at birth.

    Also, Madrox's retcon was basically that he's pretty much a mutant, but slightly different, whereas Nightcrawler's retcon IS THAT HE'S PART FUCKING DEMON.

    They were obviously running up to some ridiculous mutant vs mutate or some shit story before House of M happened and made it all irrelevant. I think given time it could've been horrible, but it was saved just in time.

    Actually I am pretty sure that Peter David still plans to explore Madrox's lineage in future stories.


    Edit: also your ridiculous assumption about where that storyline "was obviously going" is made even more ridiculous by the fact that X-Factor launched out of House of M.

    The Nova and She-Hulk solicits seem interesting in the context of what Dark Reign might be.

    Also the Remender Punisher solicit makes the cover look less cringe-worthy.

    But what I really love is that Moon Knight Dell'Otto cover.

    After the revelations of “Mind on Fire”, love is in the air for more than one member of the cast and Pete finally gets some time out with the ladies. (and who better to bring it to you than two men who both had dates as recently as 1987!)
    Amidst the romance though, forces are gathering that will spell trouble for Peter in the months to come.

    I figured that was just some symbolic imagery or something. Romita, and a lot of other Spidey artists, would often draw Peter with those two curly little bangs in the front of his hair.

    I feel bad for the current arc of Hercules, because it's obviously making fun of DC, but anything to do with that event is automatically tainted.

    i don't read spiderman, aside from the occassional trade of USM, but i find the flushing down the toilet of peter and mj to save aunt may (who has to be like 95 by now) really silly and stupid. spider-man seems to be being kind of pushed back to where he was before mj, back when a lot of the current writers were kids, which i think is stupid and lazy.

    To be completely honest, I didn't even care for most of JMS' run all that much, simply because it stopped feeling like Spider-Man at some point. I just take issue with injecting a bunch of cosmos-rending mysticism into the Spider-Man mythos, making a big, fucked up mess of continuity. Despite what any of the Amazing Spider-writers say, that's what they did.

    I think what BND tried to do was basically a good idea. The character had, by moving into Avengers tower, unmasking, and doing a bunch of other weird shit, moved too far from his roots. But all that could have been undone without making Spider-Man into a character who, quite literally, made a deal with the devil.

    This isnt an OMD discussion anymore at this point. It was a bad event, it happaned but its in the past now. The stories now are way better than they were before (my opinion). Wether it needed to happen for these stories to be told is a valid argument in many ways but also pointless in the sense that its done now and the only way to undo it is with yet another OMD type story which I'm sure nobody wants.

    My only concern is that I found the majority of JMS' Spider-Man overwrought and tedious, and I find the majority of the post-OMD Spider-Man stories fun and interesting and the writers have a clear and cohesive plan for the character that I totally dig.

    I mean no offense to Munch but it becomes silly when you get so wrapped up in a past story you didnt like that you cant enjoy good stories that followed it. I'm not saying he's dumb for not liking Brand New Day or anything like that, but I seem to remember he refused to buy the new Blue Beetle book for awhile despite the fact that most people who read it loved it, just because he was still pissed about Ted Kord dying.

    This. Bendis should never, ever leave the book.

    As for ASM, I think BND forward the book has been really good, and it reminds me of the Spidey I read when I first got into comics. From the looks of things in the solicits, this is going to continue. Oh, and if you get the subscription, it's $50 for 36 issues. That's a fucking steal.

    Long story short:

    When Nova goes back to Earth, he finds out Project Pegasus found a vial of some kind of energy from the Negative Zone. When they reboot Worldmind, or try anyway, it unlocks the container and out pops Quasar in energy form like he appeared in Richie's dream in the Annual.
