Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I don't know about anyone else...but I really enjoyed "Nova #1". I thought it was a solid first issue. Maybe a sign of the old Jeph Loeb? The Ed McGuiness art is terrific as well.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I tend to avoid Jeph Loeb's stuff these days. He's fallen far from the guy who wrote Long Halloween. It's nice to hear that maybe he's bouncing back. Nova has always seemed like a poor man's Green Lantern to me, though, and I've never had much interest in the character.

I never would have guessed Loeb wrote Nova #1, it actually had a heartfelt character story! Also, there wasn't a mysterious murder in the opening scene!

And the only good Cyclops uniform is the Jim Lee 1990s uniform

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I'm a Nova fan so I had to check this out...I miss Richard Rider, but Sam Alexander seems interesting and for once Loeb has made me care about characters he's writing again.

Nova #1 was surprisingly good.

I might check out Nova if it's supposed to be good, though it really annoys me we have another Jeph Loeb character named Sam.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

the Sam Alexander/Nova character in Ultimate Spidey is beyond annoying. i picked up Nova #1 cause i love Marvel cosmic stuffs. i expected it to be more of the same Loeb garbage but like i said, it was pretty good.

Well I didn't like like Nova.

It reminded me of Spider-Girl less the whimsy.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I have all 25 issues of the original Richard Rider series (as well as the issue of Fantastic Four that tied up the book's plotlines). I would have liked to have picked this up, but decided against because, well, I need to trim books from my budget, not the reverse. It's the same reason that I elected not to buy Guardians of the Galaxy on a monthly basis. Although, as I know that GotG will be crossing over into All-New X-Men and the Infinity event, I imagine I might pick up a few issues down the line.

FYI, his son's name is Sam Alexander Loeb. It's a tribute like Stargirl in DC Comics is suppose to be an analogue to Geoff Johns sister.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Oh, I am well aware. He names pretty much everyone Sam. It was the worst in a issue of New Ultimates in which Tony Stark thinks about how he met Jeph Loeb's son in a cancer ward, and muses about how Jeph Loeb's son was even better then sex with Carol Danvers. Ever since then, I hate it so so much.

That's the one they used in the 90s animated series right?

It know they're supposed to be the more militant team, but the whole Uncanny team look like a bunch of super-villains. It's kinda off-putting.
Aren't still the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants with delusion of grandeur still. Becuase if they are they probably look that way becuase they kind-of ARE super-villains.
Maybe it's just because I was out of Marvel for so long, but to me: Cyclops, Emma, Magik, those are all good guys! X-Men! I know that a lot has happened to shift this, but to see these characters acting and dressing like villains, while in the book titled Uncanny X-Men (you know, THE X-men book) it just doesn't feel like something I want to read.
Basically some time ago the X-Men split into one team following Xavier's philosophy lead by Wolverine (yeah that was odd) and another team following Magneto's philosophy led by Cyclopes and seeing as Magneto's team was the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants hence why I consider them the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants with delusions of grandure.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Indestructible Hulk #4: was good, the assembling of Team Banner R&D was nice to see together. Curious about where this group goes and who's a mole etc etc. Hulk under the ocean, Attuma, what's not to like.

Savage Wolverine #2: While I found this to be an issue that did nothing to move the plot forward another look at the mountain convinces me that somehow Man-Thing may be involved. For that I stick around. However, next issue I need answers on who is dropping people out of the sky. My guess is SHIELD. I then need to know why it took 8 months to do so. Also, Cho seems to have aged quite a bit. He looks almost 20yrs old now. Not the 14-16yr old I recall. They aged him quick or just artist variation? So over at CBR forums in this issues discussion thread someone posted uncolored art from upcoming issue....that sealed it for me on Man-Thing. I doubt I'll get answers as it relates to end of Thunderbolts but I'm reading this arc.


Next week, just Punisher War Zone #5
I've also thinned out my reading stack since summer also. Cost being an issue and funds needed elsewhere. I'd like to check out Nova in TPB but I like Richard so not sure how I feel about this concept.

It's funny, I think I've been away from the X-books LONGER and having Emma as the villain is perfectly natural to me. She's never been a good guy as far as I'm concerned.

Proof of how valid the phrase "to each their own" is!

And I'm loving the x-stuff now. First time I've ever had their books on my pull list and I've been collecting regularly for well over 20 years now.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I'm amazed to hear myself say this, but I think I've grown tired of Deadpool. This opening arc has stretched on beyond the point where the joke stopped being funny. Deadpool is being written as a total clown here, without any of the depth that Kelly or Nicieza gave him. Yeah, Deadpool is supposed to be funny, but that's not the only thing that he's about.
