Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Had a thought about Beast during dinner.

He's not a telepath so he's not going to use the Mind Gem, or more accurately the Mind gem is not going to use him to increase what ever vestigial telepathy Henry does have. What Hank does have is a colossal intellect, a fantastic mind for storing, processing and analysing data... If that's his mental skill, then perhaps that's what the mind gem will glom onto and enhance his intellect a thousand fold, making the Leader or the Kree Supreme Intelligence seem like peabrains, rewarding Dr McCoy with a massive boost in intuitiveness and inginuity that what's going on in his brain makes Forge's mutant superpower seem like instructions to a Lego Fire Engine.

Actually.

I know that the Gems are not connected so it shouldnt be able to effect time, but if the human morphic field exist despite linear time, what if this intellectual boost goes forward and backward in time, so that gaining the Gem now retroactively makes Henry a Supergenius since Birth?

I guess what I'm saying is, the characters aren't down to earth or relatable they're more like modern day gods... I miss the ole Bendis trope of the Avengers sitting around a table bickering with each other... but again I like it, I'm just saying it's not as mainstream. Interesting move.

Bendis speak is fantastic.

But Luke Cage is gone.

Ever since he said "SAY MY NAME JUNKIE!!!!" it was clear that he was keeping these Gods "grounded" with the filth.

I am loving this new Smasher.

She feels like Nova crossed with Blue Beetle, but frakk it.

Dorothy went to Oz with her rose coloured glasses.
Am I reading in-between the lines correctly in coming to the conclusion that the new Smasher is supposed to be the grand-daughter of non-Marvel character Dan Dare?

That's the impression that I got about Izzy as well.


Also Superior Spider-Man continues to be glorious fun!

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

All right. I don't have the time to do this every week like I used to.

Avengers 5-- An origin story for the new Smasher and already, she's a character that I like and want to root for. I'm enjoying Avengers, but not as much as I'm sure I will later. Right now, Hickman is putting all of his pieces on the board and setting things up. I'm sure there will be at some in this run, as there has been for every Hickman book that I've followed, a moment where something happens, my jaw drops with sudden realization, and I go back and re-read the whole run from the first issue. I love it when a book can do that.

New Avengers 3-- Wow. I didn't expect things to get this dark this quickly.



One thing of note regarding this issue's connection to the upcoming Thanos event. It would seem not be a simple re-hash of the Infinity Gauntlet tales as some have speculated due to one event that I'm sure will have many repercussions down the line...



Hickman has said that NA was currently the most important book in the MU, and I think that this is the beginnings to why.

All-New X-Men 7-- I am loving this book! I've always had a soft sopt for the O5, but this book is far better than I imagined it would be. I love the interactions of the O5 with the modern cast and their own future selves. Despite fears, I think Bendis has a real feel for the character's voices and a genuine direction in mind.

My favorite part, an exchange between Kitty, Jean and Teen Bobby--

Kitty: Drop and give me fifty!

Bobby: Fifty what?

Kitty: Bobby Drake-- you want to live here in the present, you want to train here. I'm training you.

Bobby: I can make ice with my body.

Kitty: Your flabby baby-boy body.

Bobby: Now, you listen here, lady, I've been an X-Man for--

Kitty: What, three weeks?

Bobby: I fought Magneto!

Kitty: Yes, I saw the footage. You threw snowballs at him.

Bobby: Oh, yeah? You know Unus the Untouchable? I totally touched him. (that sounded wrong.)

Kitty (To Jean): Is he always like this?

Jean: Consistently. Isn't yours?

Kitty: It's odd, though, that I find mine charming.

Jean: That is odd.


Of course, that brings up a niggling continuity bit. While it made for a cute line, Future Hank pulled the O5 out of the past, specifically out of X-Men 8, "The Uncanny Threat of... Unus the Untouchable!" by Lee and Kirby, from the page just before Unus made his first appearance!

Iron Man 6-- Tony Stark in space. Worth it just to see Tony Stark get shot down by an alien princess because of the hideous growth on his face-- his beard! Also, he runs afoul of some people who accuse him of murdering their god. Stark doesn't remember killing a god.

Alien: The Void Falcon, or as most would call it, The Phoenix. It's gone.

Stark: Oh. That God.


Fearless Defenders 1--I'll give it an arc and decide. I want to support one of Marvel's female-centric titles, but the 1st issue didn't do much for me. There is an interesting dynamic between Valkrie and Misty Knight, and Dani Moonstar joins the cast with next issue, so hopefully, things will pick up.

Avengers Assemble Annual 1-- A nice character bit for the Vision, one of my favorite characters. Since he isn't going to be featured in any Avengers books, it's nice that they did this story to explain his absence. I like that he made contact with his "son", Billy from Young Avengers.

Hit-Girl 5-- Wow. Just wow. That is one crazy little bitch! Bring on Kick-Ass 3!

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

So while I was flipping through Fearless Defenders #1(which I've not read yet) I noticed an advert for a new Marvel Now title simply called Wolverine #1
Is the Savage Wolverine title a mini series? I had thought that was an ongoing.

If you don't have five or so ongoing Wolverine titles, you're doing something wrong!

Is Wolverine and the X-Men considered a Wolverine title or a team book?

I'm amused by the book's use of ghostly Peter as a Shakespearean chorus.

I'm also feeling sorry for Otto.

I think Wolverine with Alan Davis art is the new "flagship" Wolverine ongoing title and Frank Cho's Savage Wolverine will run it's course after Cho has finished his story.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Paul Cornell's "Wolverine" is probably the book that Captain Craig saw. I believe Savage Wolverine is only a mini-series.

Wolverine and the X-Men is considered a team book.

-Scarlet Spider
-Ultimate Comics X-Men #22
-Uncanny X-Men #1 (I don't think I'll be sticking on this since it's Bendis writing X-Men, but who knows...he might surprise me)
-Wolverine and the X-Men #25

Small Marvel week.
