    As a reason for how the upcoming Amazing Mary Jane series comes to be, I though Amazing Spider-Man #29 was very good. And shame on Nick Spencer for tugging on the heartstrings of Peter and MJ...

    Powers of X #4 is one of those comic books where, as you read it, you sort of see how everything connects but not really. At least that's how it was for me. Not to say it isn't very good, though....

    I posted this over in the TV/Film forum, but I figure I'd also share my complete take on the whole Sony/Marvel split and Spider-Man leaving the MCU here, too. Basically, It's not Sony who are the bad...

    So here's my complete take on the whole Sony/Marvel split and Spider-Man leaving the MCU. Basically, It's not Sony who are the bad guys here:

    Exactly! The prologue from House of X #1, in which we see various X-Men being "birthed" from those Krakoa seed pods is very much a Chekov's Gun.

    This also wouldn't be the first time mutants would...

    I think we all know well enough by now that, when it comes to death in comics, it's practically meaningless. Not to mention there's at least two ways House of X and Powers of X have established which...

    I didn't think the House Of X #3 issue was as strong as the others. But I do think it's very interesting how Jonathan Hickman is making us question whether the X-Men are still in the right and...

    Under ordinary circumstances, I think Powers of X #3 would make a for fine, if standard post-apocalyptic X-Men story. However, with the ending twist (which, admittedly, quite a few folks predicted),...

    Keep in mind, just because the examples are cited are thematic examples of Hickman's theme of assimilation for the X-Men doesn't mean that each and every one of them are good things within the...

    For those who say that Hickman's X-Men is lacking social commentary, I would humbly and respectfully disagree. If anything, it's very clear that with both House of X and Powers of X, he's exploring...

    That was my thinking as well the moment we saw that the "Old Man" Wolverine talked about was, in fact, Apocalypse. It certainly would be a decent twist on Hickman part to make us think everything...

    After reading and reviewing Powers of X #2, I also agree that House of X, so far, is the better of the two series. I also agree that, when it comes to the characters, they definitely feel more...

    Three issues into Jonathan Hickman's revemp of the X-Men and he's firing on all cylinders. We often hear a lot about how certain comics are game changers, only to be undone a short time afterwards....

    Here's something that occured to me. The so-called most pivotal moment in X-Men history? What if there was some Days of Future Past style mental time travel going on in that scene, in which "Moira"...

    Okay, while I did think House of X #1 was the better of the two Jonathan Hickman X-Men series (at least so far), Powers of X #1 is still a very good read. But it's also not a simple read either, so...

    Oh yeah, there's a definite Invasion of the Body Snatchers vibe going on here, especially with the first two pages. And since, you point out, Krakoa can make humanoids of itself, it doesn't seem far...

    Oh, no kidding! The previous weekly Uncanny X-Men run, with it's whole "let's kill off a mutant every issue" became an absolute trainwreck.

    I must say, after reading this issue, it made me long for a Superior Foes of Spider-Man revival. Though I imagine Nick Spencer would just as comfortable writing a Friendly Neighborhood Boomerang...

    As per my own review, it's almost, but not quite, five stars, so four and half. Even so, as a fan of the X-Men since the 90's, I haven't been this genuinely excited for the direction they're taking...

    Wow, even when the Hulk's not even the main focus of the story, Immortal Hulk is still one of the best comics Marvel is putting out right now. Who would've thought General Fortean could become such a...

    Having wrote up a review of this issue, I also agree that Nick Spencer's main story was well done, even with the constant switching of multiple artists. Plus, this is some of the best character work...

    Okay, finally got around to reading and reviewing this issue, and I'm of the opinion that it was basically filler. However, it was well written and especially well-illustrated filler all the same.

    On the one hand, I think Spider-Man: Life Story #4 is the weakest of the four chapters thus far. That being said, it's still great! Who would've thought Chip Zdarsky could make a Clone Saga that's...

    All right, on the plus side, Amazing Spider-Man #23 (#824) does a great job tying up loose ends and laying the groundwork for new stories. On the minus side, doesn't the ending make Kraven's second...

    Well, it's intentionally tongue-in-cheek, because according to early rumors about the movie, the aliens were originally intended to be Skrulls. Even James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender kind of joked...
