Re: Avengers: Endgame

Oh, super depressing. I'm kind of hoping for a time skip just so we don't have to see the immediate aftermath.

And look, a wild Hawkeye! I would imagine his family got dusted?

Speaking of hype, the trailer broke the internet! https://ew.com/trailers/2018/12/08/aven ... er-record/

Re: Age of X-Man.... mutant Jesus is coming, just in time for the holidays!

Oh, that's a terrible idea. That should be... interesting.

It kind of makes sense to give Kurt a limited series in there, considering his almost-priest phase and long standing role as the moral compass and religious member of the team.

I bet he has some opinions on erasure of Vatican City...

Re: this coffee tastes like ass

I went back to work more or less full time in late July, which has called for a lot of adjustments. About a month ago, the file server at work crashed and took a lot of our files with it... we're talking years worth of files, for the newspaper, for advertising clients, for print clients... so that's...

Age of X-Man.... mutant Jesus is coming, just in time for the holidays!

This looks... interesting. As I've never been a huge fan of the extended Summers-Grey clan other than Rachel, I don't know a lot about Nate Grey. Guess we're going to learn? https://media.comicbook.com/2018/10/uncanny-x-men-6-1137116.jpeg Source: https://comicbook.com/marvel/2018/10/03/marvel-uncann...

Re: Anyone Know What's Happening with Kurt in 2017?

Well, it was dead, but we're trying now. Kurt has a beard, that much I know. I believe he also almost married Rachel. Aaaand, he's getting his own solo limited series in February 2019: https://img.purch.com/h/1400/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5uZXdzYXJhbWEuY29tL2ltYWdlcy9pLzAwMC8yNDIvMTU4L29yaWdpbmFsL0FPWE1BTlRBTk...
