McCoy would know, he would have helped, but If Xavier wasn't running a sperm Donors Clinic out the back, then they would have been flooding the market with mutant sperm until they actually had a chance of making it out from under the heel of humanities boot.

I can see Xavier telepathically programming all the mutants in the world to donate, I can see a Clinic that has nothing but a uniform reserve of pure Xavier, and I can see many White Ops teams breaking into existing sperm clinics to swap out human sperm with mutant sperm.

Survival of the sneakiest.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I agree with Allyn's assessment of Uncanny. It started out okay, and IMO we've had one good issue out of this, but Bendis's mis-characterization has ruined this for me. At least we know time being broke seems to be a reason for the originals unable to be returned. I'll be dropping both Bendis books again permanently after this.

I haven't noticed, is Battle of Atom crossing through all of the X-Books or just Uncanny and All-New?

It's all the X-Books. That's one of the main reasons I started collection all the issues for 'Battle of the Atom' because I was collecting Wood's "X-Men" and didn't want to be left out of the main storyline.

Despite Bendis' recent Uncanny X-Men (and yes, it was quite a mess), this is one title that I will be keeping after "Battle of the Atom" is over. I've heard some bad things about it, but Magik is one of my favorite characters, so I'll be staying with it for as long as it entertains me.

Good to know, thanks. I've already started W&XM, and I was planning on reading at least Wood's X-Men, and I was just curious if I did stick to just those two if I'd run into BotA.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Wood's X-Men is a pretty strong title, but I'm a bit biased, since it inolves all of my favorite X-women: Kitty, Rogue, Psylocke and Jubilee

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

The pilot was okay, but then I was forced to read the rest I was ignoring when I felt compelled to get up to speed before I could read the Battle of the Atom cross overs.

Soooooooooooooo much focus on looking after the baby.

Fearless Defenders #12 to mark the last issue of the title.
Notably missing from Marvel's January Solicitations was Cullen Bunn and Will Sliney's "Fearless Defenders" -- and Bunn has confirmed via tumblr that December's "Fearless Defenders" #12 will be the final issue of the series.

"The book will end with issue 12," Bunn said in response to a fan question. "We’ll try to wrap up as many story elements as we can!"
As a reader of this book it's a bit of sad news but not unexpected either. Marvel propped it up for two issues more than Journey into Mystery w/Sif and Red She-Hulk.

When Marvel announced Elektra, She-Hulk(Walters) and Black Widow I seriously wondered what that meant for this already struggling book. Not really surprised unfortunately. So now the watch is on for which of the above 3 are going to be gone by issue #10 as Marvel fandom is horrid at supporting female led books...even Captain Marvel but editorial is determined to push her till she works so she'll get past issue #10 which is why I don't count her.

I like the characters, but the art turned me off.

Didn't get past issue one.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Since the 90s, every Defenders ongoing title has been cancelled by issue #12. This is pretty much a dull surprise.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

The young X-Men brought forward in Time.

3 of them grew up to be (New) Defenders at one point.

That could be a different albeit familiar star to witch their wagon to rather than growing up to be X-Men again?

Gargoyle could mentor them?

How do they make a Defenders series that doesn't suck?

If Avengers can sell 6 books, it can't be that difficult?

I found the revelation that if you left Betty Banner together with the Silver Surfer long enough, that they would hook up to be charming.

I just caught up on my backlog of Hawkeye.

There's an issue almost completely written in Dog.
