Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I wonder if "All New" is going to be a limited run series. It certainly seems a premise with a ticking clock. And they already have Uncanny... and X-Men... and X-Force... and Cable and Force... and Wolverine and the X-Men... and Wolverine... and Savage Wolverine... and X-Factor...

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

It's ongoing as far as I can tell. That is one of my main problems with it. It has a premise that would fit perfectly for a mini-series, but this has been promoted and intended to be the flaghship title and is obviously setting up stuff for Bendis' Uncanny relaunch in March.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Well, it's a "weekly" comic, so it will probably work the same way as Amazing Spider-Man did in the beginning before Slott turned into Stephen King. Maybe they'll have creative teams switch hitting? When Bendis is spent they'll move some one else in for a couple trade paperbacks, and then Bendis comes back or some other frakk steps up to plate?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

All New X-Men is Bendis' baby. One of the core elements of Marvel Now. It won't have rotating creative teams or anything like that. It'll be more like Hickman when he launched FF, and be a companion book to the relaunched Uncanny X-Men.

The entire purpose of All New is to feature the Original X-Men. I don't see any reason for it to continue once this story line is completed...unless they just want to keep the book around and do what they did with Astonishing (which is irrelevant now IMO).

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Exactly why it needs to be cancelled. It has had rotative creating teams on it since Joss left. Warren Ellis did his "Ghost Box" arc on it and then it's just sort of been around. Majorie Lau is the current writer. Astonishing is the book that featured Northstar's wedding.

Ah yes, I did hear about the Northstar wedding, but I haven't read the title since Joss left.

The concepts for Avengers Arena and Savage Wolverine also seem to lend themselves to limited runs and yet they are supposedly ongoing as well.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I was reintroduced to Cammi (Drax the Destroyer's friend/commonlaw-adopted daughter) in Avengers Hunger games last week and I totally forgot how much I enjoyed what a grumpy little asshole she is.

Absolutely no chance of being in the movie.

I believe Bendis has said AXM is a redemption story for Cyclops. The younger X-Men are just a means towards that.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Indeed, but using the Original X-Men are still a reason why All New X-Men exists. Gillen set up Scott's redemption story perfectly for Bendis to tell even without the time travel nonsense included in Consequences.

He could have just told the "revolution" story line by itself and that would have been interesting enough. The Original X-Men are the selling point of All New X-Men (especially the "return" of Jean Grey, since Marvel and Bendis started promoting that aspect of it. Anyway, I've said from the start that the premise would make a perfect mini-series.

The Original X-Men are probably going to eventually release that they can't "fix" anything because it would disrupt their own timeline too much and be sent back with a mind wipe, pretty much making this book pointless IMO. Maybe I'm wrong, and that's okay, and perhaps this and Uncanny will eventually lead into whatever it is Marvel is planning for the X-Men's 50th Anniversary later this year.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

That depends really on if Beast has created an alternate timeline just by the very act of time travel. It might be how he is going to bring Jean back.
