Kind of a light week, nothing eye catching or "wow"

The first issue of Azrael ties into Morrison's Batman run, and was pretty good, coming from someone who has never read an Azrael issue.

Um.... I guess MOTW was Outsiders #16, where the team sets up how they're going to roll, and Metamorpho describes the team in relation to Batman. The big baddie also has a somewhat stupid premise, but for some reason it works. Scans below:

    I just read the wiki summary. How terribly retarded. I already hated Yost and Kyle for slaughtering most of the characters in New X-Men and stealing Wolfsbane from X-Factor. Offing a character that had been so recently rehabilitated and made cool just comes off as amazingly wasteful and, well, dumb.

    The end of Old Man Logan is going to be a close-up shot of Eminem telling you how tight your asshole is.

    Edit:

    I figure Boom Boom can be protected forever by Next Wave. Enough weird shit happened in that that in some form or another you can resurrect her whenever you feel like it. Still though, I hate it when shitty little deaths happen in comics. It adds to a story no one's reading, it feels out of place since no one ever dies, it's dumb. You can have them take sabbaticals, dudes.

    Re: Wolverine
    I didn't get the Emma marrying Doom thing at all, but in hind sight it makes a little sense. I just took it as he was watching them. I liked that Emma still makes it appear she's young, pretty in character. I wish they would have shown some of the other heroes that still survived, along with Emma and Blackbolt, though. Piqued my curiosity.

    Edit: Oh yeah. And I loved Osborn's pep talk to Bob in Dark Avengers. That was pretty sheisty. The way he was talking to him, not sure if that dispels the whole theory on
    the Void helping Osborn, rather than the Sentry.

    So are you advocating that no one ever die in comics, seeing as they will come back in one way or another?

    I haven't read the issue, so for all I know it really is meaningless and all, but shouldn't we give the writers a chance and see if they follow through with the death and what it means to the others that are still alive?

    Kyle and Yost tend to be butchers, though, and there are plenty of characters they could have used to similar affect. It's not like Boom Boom's even been in the story at this point. They could have just offed another no-namer like the Whispering Child or whoever was first. Or they could have just had the Leper Queen die and leave Tabby alive. It seemed awful pointless, and just served to make Scott to loook even more like a gigantic tool.

    Look, it's pretty dumb that the streets of Marvel New York aren't running red with blood 24/7. I can accept it. It annoys me is when a character, maybe B or C-list but still decent, is just offed.

    "Oh no Monica Rambeau can't be in XYZ, the Ultimatoritax bit her head off in that one arc of a comic read by 20,000 people"

    I mean, you can have it open up new stories, like Cap's death did. But usually it doesn't, it just shuts down old ones.

    It's not just that it was pointless, or that they pulled in a character people actually like for all of 5 pages for this cheap throw away, even within the context fo the story it's stupid.
    There's no version of time travel that work like that. Once you know where you're going, there's no rush to actually leave here. If I'm going to the year 3000, it doesn't matter if I go now or if I go tomorrow morning, I'm still going to the same destination.

    It really is laughably terrible. I'm debating on whether or not to keep getting it just to see what outrageous thing Loeb does next
    What was Hank Pyms death for? He just took a whole bunch of Madrox dupes on to himself to die? What? Thats not even touching on the biting off of blobs head or any other amount of absurd things that happened in it.

    You know, as soon as I saw that last panel in X-Force, I thought
    Scott is going to have a VERY unpleasant reunion with Logan once X-Force returns from the future.

    I really look forward to that.

    Also, now when the hell will we actually get around to the end of Old Man Logan? I'm really digging the story, but the fact that every issue (well, to be honest, every issue after the 3rd or 4th) seems to end with a cliffhanger followed by 2-3 months waiting for its resolution is starting to wear thin...

    She actually appeared in a story with Beast that was pretty awesome. The character had basically just been rebuilt from the ground up, so killing her now is just annoying as fuck. It's like killing Machine Man just after he's had a resurgence in popularity. Sure you can say, "Oh well no-one cared about him before or after Nextwave, and Nextwave's never coming back, so why not kill him?" Maybe because he's actually an interesting character now?

    It's comforting to know that someone else hates Ultimatum just as much as I do (well, and reviewed it for more to see).

    I still don't know why Marvel thought letting Jeph Loeb handle this event to reboot the Ultimate universe was the best idea.

    Also unrelated note: Anyone else notice the push Deadpool has been getting lately? I can only assume this means that they plan for Ryan Reynolds to be received well in the upcoming Wolverine Origins and spin off a Deadpool movie of him. I mean, I've been a fan of his since the start of Joe Kellys run, and he's never received this kind of attention before.

    I don't really have a moment of the week.

    Re: Boom Boom.
    It seemed like a pointless way for the story to seem tough and grim, which I understand is sort of the point of X-force, but ... like Werehippy said, they're about to TIME TRAVEL. What difference does it make if they jump into the future now, or 10 minutes after freeing the hostage/their former teammate? Why would Scott spontaneously become stupid? Handle hostage #1, send team to future, let them prance around with Bishop and Cable, send them back to the moment after they left, and tell them to head to the UN building to handle hostages #2 and #3 to prevent the explosion. If they come back two issues from now and then undo her death, I will not be impressed.

    Plus, Iron Man just did a superior people-as-organic-bombs story recently. So meh.

    Uncanny X-Men --
    So Scott tells the Mayor it's not a militia, but an army. Hmm. For a while I thought writers were going to take Scott on some badly mis-timed Jack Bauer nonsense, now I just kind of wonder what the plan is.
