Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I liked the Dimension Z story. At least it's something different from the political conspiracy thriller stuff that marked the past decade of Cap stories. It was a breath of fresh air!

i'll take political intrigue and spy shenanigans over Cap fighting mutates and cutting Zola's face outta his chest.

The book and character lends itself better to an exploration of politics and America. Really the most memorable moments of the character are either political or callbacks to the WW2 generation.

Dimension Z has been the best Captain America storyline since about half-way through Brubaker's run.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Reminded me of elements of Kirby's run in the 70s. Which had followed a 'more serious' and political run by Englehart and a few mediocre issue by various writers. Of course Zola was created by Kirby in that run and JRjr has a very Kirby design sense.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

That's another thing. I am sick to death of the WWII flashbacks and callbacks in modern day. And I love WWII in general They just keep hitting the same notes over and over. It was nice to see something different for once. And putting Cap in an alien dimension and giving him a young son is about as different as you can get!

Steve became Captain America when he was 20. 4 or 5 years as Captain America and then decades as a capsicle. So how long has it been since the Avengers found him? 15 or 20 years?

Man out of time no more.

Marvel time is wonky. Could be anywhere from 10 to 20 years. (yet Franklin hasn't reached puberty). But playing the Man out of time card is a bit silly after a couple of years. Unless he's incredibly stubborn, he's acclimated. Being a guy who was physically and mentally in his mid-twenties when thawed out ( plus seeing also sorts of amazing tech before he was frozen) he's going to adapt pretty fast.

No one has to any more.

Myspace has been losing relevance and market share consistently for years now.

Sally Floyd made the myspace comment at the rear end of the civil war.

That was 2007.

(Oh! You were being ironic!)

George was still the prez back then.

Dark times.

Steve Rogers on Marvel Time can outlive any flash in the pan fad (like myspace), and that fads children (like facebook), and that fads children (Like Tumblr) and...

I was unprepared for the art in All New X-men.

It really jiggers the tone of the book.

For Avengers, I think they could have accomplished this in 6 issues instead of 17.

"End of prelude"

That did make me laugh.

The art for this issue of All New X-Men made the O5 actually look like teenagers! They were adorable

How old is Rachel Grey supposed to be? In the preview pages for this latest ANXM she looks about the same age as teen Jean, but the first few Wolverine and the X-Men issues she appeared to be an adult.
