    ??? I never heard this!


    I always wanted this to be followed up on but after almost 20 years, I've def lost interest. Is CC going to use X-Men Legends to tell the story behind the time jump that...

    But a good, devoted, and forgiving beard often becomes the supportive lifelong BFF. At least that's what I've seen on TV!

    (I do actually know some real life families like this and it's amazing!)

    Exactly right. Writers that have tackled Lorna usually always fail the Bechdel test. They only know two things: Lorna's relationship with Alex or Magneto and that she's kind of crazy. And both of...

    There are a lot of things to be critical about Hickman, but his creative mind isn't one of them. He doesn't need to saddle Jean with Scott as a way to not write her. If he didn't want to write her...

    I do find the Arakko situation to be kind of a headache rather than interesting story. I'm not sure I'm going to enjoy this phase. X of Swords was a huge misstep. I wanted to see more about life on...

    Percy's characterization to me is pretty spot-on. Jean hasn't always been the most proactive X-Man, but she is the voice of reason. She challenges people to do the right thing and although she's...

    Lol totally. I do think Hickman's Jean is a little bit off, but not in any way close to unmanageable. It would literally just take a few lines of dialogue to make things "better", so I don't see the...

    I don't think Bishop's parents would be born yet in 616, but I guess the grandparent that's the child of Gateway should be. Another plot thread left hanging!

    You're right, Forge did have that kind of somber, quiet seriousness of the guilt-ridden war veteran character when he first debuted. I think one of the reasons Percy's characterization clicks with me...

    No one's being anti-Cyclops because he's not a real person. Most of us are discussing the way characters are written by writers and dissecting their intent, execution, the fallout, etc.

    I've enjoyed the "anthology" aspect of X-Men, but it's just moves at a snail pace. They need to accomplish more with each issue.

    It's just a name. If you wanna call Adam-X the Summers half-brother, go nuts lol. And Vulcan is a full Summers so why would his relation to Adam-X be different than Alex's or Scott's?
