I love All New X-Men. I wish it came out every day.

I really have no interest in young teen Thanos and the angst he feels over his unfullfilled love for Death. Boring.

Eh, Savage Wolverine is a one and done for me. It was pretty dull and uninspired.

How old is Thanos? Teen Thanos could go to earth and party with teen Sylvia Plath?

Circa X-Men #10, when this all happened, who did Chuck have on speed-dial back then?

Amelia Voight?

Storm?

Madrox?

Havok?

Wolverine?

Changeling?

(Oh god) Namor?

or do you mean the first back up team that Krakoa the living island killed before the Professor swept that under the carpet and sent the all new all different X-Men in Giant Sized X-Men #1?

Actually what I think would be hilarious is that Magneto follows the kids into the future because he has every inch of the the school wired, only to be disgusted by himself.

" ...But you destroyed New York, that was good."

"That wasn't me. Just some idiot pretending to be me."

HA! I know why Jean is a telepath!

The professor installed timelocks rather than outright locks when he IN CANON he turned off her telepathy because she was too young to handle it... So it's like putting the clocks forward a couple hours.

Superior Spider-Man #1.

I didn't know Marvel Comics published one-and-dones any more.
Matt Fraction's Hawkeye, which has been magnificent, has been mostly done-in-ones with one two-parter. The first arc of Keiron Gillen's Iron Man was composed of done-in-one issues. It's a trend I approve of.

Been thinking of getting back to Marvel again( the same last year my interest somehow dried out). The time seems pretty good for it now and it would not make my shopping really that much more expensive(if I order two or three new comics, that is).
But I am still unsure what titles to try out
Hawkeye and Daredevil have been fantastic. I'm really enjoying All-New X-Men, and although it's not my cup of tea, Wolverine and the X-Men is generally very well liked.

The new volumes of Avengers and New Avengers have both started a little slow IMHO, but writer Jonathon Hickman always plays a long game with his books, and I would recommend getting on the train early as the stories in both are sure to pick up speed.

Amazing Spider-Man was generally always a good bet but ASM doesn't exist anymore (for now, anyway). The current Spidey book, Superior Spider-Man, is a different animal, even though it's the same writer. I would suggest researching Spider-Man's current status quo before commiting to buying, but I would bet that SSM will be a fun ride.
Sorry to quote myself twice in one post, but I have something to add to both of these statements.

Indestructable Hulk. Three issues in and they have all been done-in-ones, and they have all been very good reads. I would highly recommend it to a new or returning reader.

Just how long ago did the X-Men form in current continuity. I can understand Scott being confuse by a Map phone ap, but by bottle water? And why is he staring at the mohawk guy? The 70s were over 30 years ago, his dad might have sported a mohawk.

Isn't it somewhere in the neighborhood of 15-20 years have passed in the Marvel Universe since the "beginning" with the Fantastic Four's accident?

Even if Scott is from 1993, I think he'd know what bottled water is and had seen a guy with a mohawk. Surely they had TV in the orphanage and at Xavier's.

I remember people staring at people with mohawks up into the early eighties. But then again colorado was not on the front lines of what was hip then.

Mohawks would have been unusual then. Ten or fifteen years later, not so much.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Mowhawks are for tryhards conforming to acceptable parameters of rebellion now.

Unless they're being Ironic.

Then they're just assholes.

Fauxhawks were never cool.

It's definitely over 20 years since they were taken.

Whet pegged me was Kitty saying that Jean was in the class ahead. Kitty joined during the dark Phoenix saga. They barely met before Jean died on the moon 6 issues or 6 hours later. And when Jean came back for X-Factor, Kitty was off in England with Excalibur (Although Kitty celebrated her 16th birth day in I think it was probably Excalibur 16. Courtney Ross (Courtney Cox + Ross Ghellar? Weird.)bought her an Italian sports car.). Any time they met after that they would have been peers and adults, before Jean died again.

The bottled water thing threw me as well. There's no way that Marvel continuity is older than ten years of comic book time. So that would place Young Scott from @2002. After 9/11. I'm pretty sure they had bottled water back then...

You just have to accept that it doesn't make sense - logically they are from maybe 1998 or around then but within the story, they are meant to be from the 1960s or a similar low-tech 'innocence' era - it's never going to be internally consistent because they are going for an emotional reaction and a certain feel rather than an analytical approach.

Having said that, even you really do stick to "it's 15 years ago" and do it in a consistent manner - that throws up all sorts of changes to the Marvel Universe, within a couple of years, we'll have a Cap who woke up after 911 (he must have already missed the cold war)*. The punisher has been recently revised to be a Gulf War vet rather than one of the nam.



* Mark Waid recently did a series where Cap wakes up last year and Obama is the president.
