    It's supposed to take Astonishing's spot, but Marvel is a publishing Hydra, so there's probably one more book planned to launch too. And this time it will be three times a month, two in one week!

    I just want more people in the Marvel Universe to not act like death of a hero is serious business. Now Cyclops can point to Kurt and go "Remember how you were all crybabies when he died and blamed me like you always do? You know he was going to come back, right? So shut up about Xavier!"

    "sure thing, bub. Just let me kill you for a few years, so you and Chuck will be even"

    "I already "died" when I was possessed by Apocalypse for two years you canadian asshole, you couldn't even be impostered by a skrull for three months!"

    Colossus: "I hate you all"

    Jean: "I hate you all the most."

    "X Saves The Marvel Universe" starring C/D-list characters sounds like the equal and opposite reaction to "X Kills The Marvel Universe", and I would love more of it.

    Anything with Longshot in it gets my seal of approval! (*remembers the Shatterstar Saga*) Wait, I retract that.

    And in it's in continuity instead of in some dumb fanwanky alternate universe that only exists to kill characters for dumb reasons!

    Interview with Hastings and Campagni about Longshot Saves the Marvel Universe
    Geek: Longshot was, for quite a while, one of Marvel's most popular characters, but he also seems irrevocably rooted in a different era: a guy from a television dimension, dressed in a jumpsuit and bandolier strap, with his hair styled in a ridiculous mullet. How do you him work for today's readers?

    Hastings: Well, in regards to Longshot's personal fashion choices, I'd say that's largely been solved during his time on X-Factor. Jacopo's given him a snappy new haircut, but that's about it. As far as connecting with modern readers, well I'm a modern reader too, and I'm just writing the story I'd like to read. I think very seriously about what the reality of Longshot's powers might mean, and explore that, but I also know that magical luck should be really fun and surprising, and I'm trying to go for that too. This particular adventure doesn't deal very much with Longshot's "Mojoverse Gladiators" origins, though obviously it's shaped him.

    Camagni: I can tell about the "new" style. When Jordan sent me the script, he asked me to change the look of Longshot, and he precisely asked me: "We’ll definitely want to make him VERY attractive in this miniseries! We want ladies and gentlemen both to be swooning over him", so I have tried to change his hair and facial look and bring it from the eighties to the present. I think it's very cool now. I loved the "motorcycle style" suit that he wore in the last appearances, so I haven't changed it and I think that the mix of old suit and new hair make for a very cool and badass look.

    Geek: What can you tell us about the set-up for this story? How does it begin, and what sort of feel are you going for?

    Hastings: It starts off in New York City, and people who catch lucky breaks are mysteriously dying soon after. Win the lottery, hit too many green lights in a row, good hair day? Dead. And that's obviously very concerning to Longshot! As far as the feel, I'm really just trying to go for a fun romp through the Marvel universe, having fun with different characters having their luck effected by Longshot. He's an optimistic, cheerful guy, and it's a good time to plunge that into extremely deadly situations.

    I used to love longshot as a kid (I painted a picture of him and they hung it up in the town hall for like a whole day!) but haven't read any x-factor ishes with him.

    Is it worth it?

    X-Factor's a pretty solid series from what I've read.

    Well, this isn't going to carry over to the new thread and I thought I locked it earlier today, but I guess not!
