    Just a flying visit, but wanted to say how much I have been loving this book. It has such depth. A book about magic that actually understands what magic should be. Totally engrossing.

    This was one...

    Right there is the issue. You are challenging the writer to do things your way or you won’t engage. Guess what? Nobody at Marvel is listening to those kinds of challenges. You already ranked this...

    For me, the Secret Wars reboot should have precipitated a far bolder new dawn for the entire line. It presented the opportunity to be radical with canon. Because the universe was reconstructed and...

    So it seems heavily telegraphed that the Death Commandos are following the tradition of X-Book space teams being DC analogs, and that these guys are a disguised Suicide Squad. Unfortunately I know...

    Very interesting story. (Slightly disturbed by the apparently huge death toll that only got a passing mention.)

    The writing is very tight, so much so that by the time I was a third of the way...

    Sure, that makes perfect sense. Welcome back the writer who not only told everyone openly he didn’t really care about Thor, but the one who took the job on short notice and completely threw away all...

    As you have directly dismissed my only example which is categorically true because he has been portrayed as both being able to fly and not being able to then I really don’t have much incentive as you...

    One is more valid, precisely because they are in the market for it. Investment in a product suggests that they have a literal vested interest. If someone has already decided that it isn’t worth their...

    Clearly I wasn’t because I was responding to someone else. But I was indeed commenting also on the large number of people who complain about things they are proud not to have purchased on these...

    I didn’t say fluid, I said not static. His powers have changed quite often depending upon the writer. Can he fly for example. Depends on when he was being written.

    The whole idea of Captain...

    Plus ‘Revolutionary War’ was all about overlaying real world political outlooks and moods onto the Marvel UK characters and concepts, so it’s not without recent precedence.

    Never is a strong word. There have been hints of this to explain why his powers have not been static over the years.

    I would give that one a pass because here the Queen is treating the post of Captain Britain as kind of a constitutional equivalent of the PM for Otherworld affairs.
  14. There is also a probable nod to the powers of...

    There is also a probable nod to the powers of Captain Britain being tied to the mood and outlook of the nation. Although it hasn’t been overtly political there is a sense that it is obliquely...

    Combined with the gates refusing her passage which we are continually reminded of (here by the reference to Krakoan language) it still seems highly likely she is covertly possessed by a non-mutant...

    Clearly we are supposed to be shocked by this new Kate. She is making a habit of wilfully maiming people and she is drinking more than she usually would. On the other hand she is maiming people that...

    How long before the ‘Rictor is being set up as a sacrifice’ plot line?

    I honestly think someone was listening in on my darkest Christmas wishes and decided to drop Gambit down a deep hole and...

    I really like that one. It makes me imagine a few other combos.

    What if Quire was actually 5 cuckoos? That would be terrible of course.

    What if they were based on Xavier? Not much better.

    For anyone who has actually read his run or more to the point actually has invested in it (ie paid to read it) it pays off well. Especially #3 for me.

    Late 2019 for Western Europe they say. They clearly didn’t get that in line. Earliest projection for the UK is April 2020 with no actual facts or promises.

    King Thor as a mini was a perfect ending to one of the all time great runs in modern comics. I was delighted that Esad Ribic was brought back to do this too, but I can’t help feeling that he missed...
