    I mean it doesn't look bad at all

    it is just

    I dunno it feels like the Thunderbolts/Dark Avengers haven't actually been "villains-as-superheroes" for quite a while. I know they were right when the Heroic Age hit and it was really fantastic

    to be fair I have only been following it second hand since the DA change so maybe there has been an arc or two about that

    maybe he's not allowed to bring them back to 616 or something on account of the new Thunderbolts

    Eh


    that seems like a really dumb decision that the current Marvel Editorial staff wouldn't do

    I mean X-Treme X-Men and Age of Apocalypse keep rollin on just fine

    Hey Parker remember how everybody hated Star Trek Enterprise? Remember how one of the reason was because instead of dealing with the stories implied in the set up they did a bunch of time travel crap that completely wasted the setting?

    Yeah.

    I haven't been feeling a vibe from Dark Avengers. I stuck with it through the end of Thunderbolts, but eh it really lost some of its charm. And the end if the old team/the whole last arc was kind of weak.

    I kind of want to see how USAgent is going to be in it but I really don't give a flying fig about the rest of the team, and I get my reality-hopping fix from X-Treme anyway. Oh well.

    So I'm curious which mutants got the Phoenix Force sun burn that seems to be altering powers beside the five?

    Has something happened to Peter's powers? Or Namor's? I haven't picked up anything with either of them in it so I don't know if they are having power issues as well.

    We haven't seen either of them yet. Namors power is dumb foot wings though so really there's no way they couldn't improve that.

    Namor's powers are cool, feet wings included, and don't you forget it

    I will never like the wings.

    The retcon for his various fish powers is hilarious.

    One of the early interviews on Cable and X-Force mentioned that something would be going on with Peter's powers, so it sounds like something's up across the board with the P5 - it'll be interesting to see if it's a power up or or some sort of loss of control though... Of course, it could also have something to do with the recent loss of the juggernaut powers.

    I thought Namor got his feet wings ripped off by Venom? How'd he get them back?

    Well Magneto can't control his powers ,Cyclops seem to fire in uncontrolled bursts instead of a straight line ( which ties to his new visor design actually) Magik is uberpowerful and Emma can only use her diamond form ( oh and can show emotions other than bored.). Its implied Beast was affected as well.
    I have a feeling Colossus is stuck in his armor form but they haven't really said anything about Namor.

    If his weird ass fish powers came back I would love it.

    Acuna is joining Remender on Uncanny Avengers starting with issue #6, which will be a apocalypse arc called "Ragnarok", Young Thor/Asgard has some heavy ties with Apocalypse's past apparently.

    Acuna aint that great

    but that story sounds super cool

    also a continuation of the Aaron/Remender bromance which usually results in good stuff

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    You guys are bonkers

    Looks great

    And yeah Remender playing with Aaron's Thor and Cassaday not causing delays both sounds great

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    That does look very nice, yes

    the colouring helps a lot though and Acuna can do work that is not as good

    if Acuna pulls out his a game then that'll be great, of course!

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Pretty sure he colors himself?

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    well honestly

    I'd much rather it was Acuna than Cassaday AKA Captain Plastic Hunchbacks

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Yeah Acuna inks and colors his own work. I think he is all digital but could be wrong.

    Red Skull + Kang + Apocalypse?
    Young Thor and Uncanny X-Force tying into the main Marvel universe?

    Yes, I would like these things

    Man I just

    I think Cassaday's art looks pretty rad in Uncanny Avengers but not "have issues be delayed a butt ton" rad

    It a combination of losing Cassaday and the fact that it is Acuna of all people replacing him.

    Like I could tolerate it on a fill on basis, or of Cassady would at least stay in the art rotation.

    But knowing Acuna is going to be the artist on the majority of the issues going forward is a huge bummer for me.

    Like I'm not going to say it's killed my interest in the book, but it does drop it way down my list in terms of books I can or can't live without.

    Ooh

    that art is great, actually

    I mean he's no Coipel but at the same time it's pretty damn good

    Yeah, it definitely looks like Acuna has taken inspiration from Ribic's work on TGoT

    Then I got to the bottom panel and of course Thor has that fucking squinty face he always uses.

    Maybe, maybe not.

    Remender mentioned the child of Archangel and Pestilence being a major part of the arc so I would say that baby Apocalypse would be the focus

    Marvel NOW! brings readers Deadpool, the most patriotic and educational new comic book series of the century! Providing readers with a completely (not) 100% accurate depiction of American history, the most famous presidents and their very real modern day exploits as zombies, there’s no X-Man more perfect than Deadpool for the most American variant cover of all. Marvel is pleased to unveil the Uncanny X-Men #1 53 State Birds Variant, by superstar artist Stuart Immonen, bringing all 52 state (and territories) birds (+1)* to life on one cover. That’s like 52 (+1)* state variants for the price of one! Calling all bird watchers, this one of a kind variant featuring all of America’s greatest feathered patrons is a must have for any fan!

    “Ornithology is one of America’s greatest past times,” mentioned Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “With Inauguration day and Spring just around the corner – we could think of no better way than to celebrate our history with a beaked representative from every state including Puerto Rico and then some!”

    This February, Cyclops is back in full force in Uncanny X-Men #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series from the blockbuster creative team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Chris Bachalo! In the wake of the Phoenix, the world has changed and is torn on exactly what Cyclops and his team of X-Men are – visionary revolutionaries or dangerous terrorists? Whatever the truth, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magneto, and Magik are out in the world gathering up new mutants and redefining the name Uncanny X-Men.

    “Retailers will have the unique opportunity to collect all the various birds of the United States on one cover,” explained Marvel SVP of Sales, David Gabriel. “No need to worry about purchasing individual covers to get all 53 beautiful birds. One cover. 53! Birds!”

    So what are you waiting for? Put on your red, white & blues while pulling out those binoculars and reserve the Uncanny X-Men #1 53 State Birds Variant at your local comic shop today!



    * (+1) America’s great symbol of freedom, the Bald Eagle
