The Tribunal told/forced Adam Warlock wearing the Infinity Gauntlet to behave and get his shit together.

Omniversal trumps universal.

I could even see that trio of Deadpool minis tying into the greater crisis storyline.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I bought Guardians of the Galaxy #5. I bought it for the Gaiman content, but he's been downgraded from co-writer to consultant, and if there was any Gaiman content in this it doesn't show. Angela has all of about two lines of dialogue in this.

On its own, this is... bad. The final four or five pages are pretty impressive, as Bendis write a conversation between two characters we can't see on the other side of the galaxy while Pichelli draws Gamora and Angela beating the shit out of each on the Moon. And the cliffhanger is really good and has some relevance to the upcoming Infinity. But getting to that point is a lot of character moments that don't do anything to drive the plot. It's superficial.

If you're reading the series, maybe you'll enjoy this. If you're not already reading the series and were curious about the Gaiman factor, you can safely skip this.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Given Marvel's habitat of putting writer names on projects they didn't do, one wonders how much real consulting Bendis did with him.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

You're suggesting that the consult credit comes from inventing Angela 20 years ago?

Did Ali just die over in Uncanny?

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

aside from Rocket's inane 'Blam, murdered you!' dialogue i've enjoyed this run of Guardians so far. was nice to see Mantis show up in this weeks issue.

and like Guy, i'm wondering if Dazzler is really for reals dead.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

"Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Nova" have both been pleasant surprises to me. I've been very much enjoying them...and I originally had no interest in them when they were first announced.

How long does Mystique want to pass as Alison to fulfil some mysterious gamibit?

If she needs hours, then Ali was probably drugged.

If she needs days or weeks, then the (living) body or (dead) corpse has to be extracted from the Hellicarrier.

It's a political Appointment.

But if I may quote the indestructible Brock Samson "Look, David Bowie is not the leader of the league of Calamitous intent, it may look like David Bowie but it's Not. I've met David Bowie and he can't metamorphose into a fricking raven."

Did you never see 70s Saturday Morning cartoon Butch Cassiday and the Sundance Kids.

At least Remender will get rid of Sharon and switch her out for Wanda. It'll be interesting to see how they develop that.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I believe next issue is the finale of the Dimension Z story. Remender has been inconsistent on the book as John Jr's art has been. Ten issues for this particular type of story has been too long, and I actually liked the start of it. It's just dragged on though. I'm looking forward to what Remender has in store for Steve when he's back out...he mentioned it in Uncanny Avengers which I enjoyed quite a bit. The new artist will be interesting as well.

I wonder if those rumours about John Jr going over to DC will be true?
