So Speedball is back to being Speedball and not spike-y, leather-y, angsty, whatever his name was post-Civil War? When they tried to make him all 90's cool, discounting that it was the 2000's?

Penance had his place.

Wikipedia says "Speedball" has been on the teaching staff at Avengers Academy since 2010.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Marvel seems to not know what to do with FF since Hickman concluded his run.

I like the lost in time stuff... But then you have to turn everything upside down to explain Susan in the Age of Ultron of Reed in the Avengers. "Time-Radio" drawing the FF's momentary attention so that they come home early, without knowing that they are lost and never come back, even though they are only supposed to be gone for 4 minutes.

Alex Power working for Doom is interesting.

Well they probably shouldn't have removed Hickman so quickly from FF/Fantastic Four. His Avengers/NA is interesting, but not nearly as good as his run on Fantastic Four.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I dropped the Fraction pretty swiftly. After JMS then Mark Millar then Hickman, it's pretty hard to find someone who can maintain that level.

I wish Hickman had stayed on FF instead of Avengers. While his Avengers run is interesting, his cold intellectual fun-less style doesn't really work for the premiere Marvel book.

His New Avengers was actually very interesting. But it looks like he is off the book.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I haven't read anything about Hickman being off New Avengers. I was under the impression that Avengers World would be a companion piece to both his other titles.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Some major events in the new issues of Avengers and New Avengers, to the point where I'm shocked this isn't in the Infinity book. Particularly since the entirety of last issue was just Thor tossing a hammer through somebody!

Major movements in Superior Spider-Man as well. Horizon Labs gets destroyed, Ock is fired from them, and Spidey 2099 is here to stay. And Ock no longer has access to Peter's memories! Not to mention the closing cliffhanger! Nice to see such large consequences to what seemed to be a one-off crossover story.

I forgot comics came out today.

Which is why I thought you were talking crazy.

(And Spoilers!)

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Uncanny X-Men #13 (chapter 8 of Battle of the Atom).

What an incomprehensible mess.

There are dynamics at play that I simply don't understand because the story still hasn't explained them. What's at stake still hasn't been explained, and the motivations of the future characters are still cryptic. There's a fight that doesn't make sense because Chris Bachalo's panel layouts are baffling. And I really really really don't see Jean Grey, no matter what she's been through, dropping f-bombs like that.

Suffice it to say, I won't be continuing with the X-books after Battle of the Atom. I'm going to stick it out the final two chapters of this crossover in the hope that there's a payoff, though I'm increasingly doubtful that there will be.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Xavier used to telepathically bleep all language stronger than pg13.

There was no point in even trying to swear, because bald brother was always watching.

Actually taking this a step further, I can imagine Jean and Scot trying to play Doctor at the age of 17 only to find out that the other's sex doodads appear pixelated to the other.

Although considering the burgeoning state of the mutant race, you would think that Xaviers would welcome unwanted teen pregnancies?

We know Xavier was having pervvy thoughts about Jean from the whole Onslaught mess!

Xavier's pervy thoughts towards Jean date all the way back to, like, X Men 4.
