    Finished Captain Marvel #2...a little bit of a drop off from the first issue (possibly only because Spider-Man is missing from the book ;) but otherwise this was interesting. We get an answer why there is World War II iconography being used in this issue as well. Looks like Carol is finally accepting her new role and name. I'm assuming that this takes place some time after the events of Avengers Vs X-Men, since Carol is not wearing her new costume in that book or any of it's tie-ins I believe. It's too self contained though to really tell. I'll be continuing with this book. McCormick writes a great Carol. The art takes a bit getting used to...but it's not bad.

    I find there to be something off with Captain Marvel. Like its a rejected and repurposed Wonder Woman pitch.

    I dunno I was almost thinking more female Green Lantern with the whole space alien origins and such. Y'know I never really put two and two together, but Carol Danvers is basically a female Hal Jordan - but a female Hal Jordan that actually did something with his flying skills besides become a test pilot.

    I'm still in love with Carol "Captain Ms. Marvel" Danvers and you can't change that :drool:

    Although what I am worried about with the inclusion of Rogue - are they going to trot out that hoary old saw about "Oh woe is me, Rogue was such a bitch when she was a KID and took my powers and memories... yadda yadda." because the way things are now - she's got memories and feelings about pretty nearly everything she remembers, so let it go. It's almost as bad as Tony going to AA meetings every few issues. I mean my GOSH, he had ONE FRICKIN' BOTTLE of booze in front of Odin and a few pints of Ale in Asgard and suddenly he's like "omigosh I'm such a bad alcoholic."

    I hate AA's "I'm Tony and I'm an alcoholic." like... no Tony you aren't. You're a "former alcoholic." you grew up. You learned new substitutions for the booze. You learn moderation. Fuck, if you can create an arc reactor out of nothing, you can beat booze.

    ^I cant wait for this horrific arc to end. Quite possibly the worst Iron Man story(and I have them all) since they turned him into a teenager.

    It's that bad eh? Well...as I've said before I haven't bothered with Fraction's Iron Man since the end of Secret Invasion. Probably a little prior to that actually.

    Didn't Fractions run start out good though? I thought I remembered people really liking some of the stuff around that came out around the time of the movies.

    yeah, it started off really good. but after Tony rebooted his brain its went from blah to terrible. i just wish this current arc would end. its just dragged on for months and months.

    It was awesome for a long time...then it wasn't. Shinzon is correct...it was around the brain boot that it started to suck and I lost interest.

    If Remender's gone from X-Force, I'm done reading it.

    Although if Remender is going to inject his politics into Uncanny Avengers, I can't say I'm too thrilled about that either.

    Being his idea is a bit stupid at face value is it not?
    A lot, if not most of his rage was at being used, betrayed and placed into the Weapon X project. He may indeed have that inner berserker anyway but that was always good reason and motivation for that chip on his shoulder.

    Pretty much why I've ignored the book...aside from Daken, most of which has been introduced in this book has been stupid in my opinion, and I don't think much of Daken either.

    Well there are side effects to most human testing.

    Although, he got all his memories back in House of M.

    WHAM.

    No Amnesia.

    but he's living the wrong life.

    Then he's zapped by Layla Miller and he's got his old life back, and his new life and still no amnesia.

    Nothing should be a surprise to him any more.

    Although he's still laconic.

    Yes, I too have been avoiding Wolverine for years.

    Thing, is with a classical privileged 19th century education, he's probably pretty damn qualified to be the headmaster of a school, then of course if he just taught languages he'd be fine, not that the telepaths just don't down load language packets into poeples heads making his decades of accidentally learning shit redundant.

    I'm actually enjoying Iron Man for the first time since Dark Reign, the story is actually going somewhere big.
