Seconded on both counts. I was really starting to like that character, too. Dammit. Why is it always the ones I like?! :cry

Re: Uncanny X-force Thread

Ah, cool, I knew they were related but was trying to put the chicken before the egg. I was reading at the time, but the years can muddle together. That's a lot of blue mileage. ;) Come to think of it, 616 Kurt's loincloth and swords might have had to do with the popularity of the AoA arc. Maybe the...

Re: Uncanny X-force Thread

Darkholme was brought in under the design concept imagery of the original Nightcrawler, but in an edgier version, to fit with the current Marvel trend. If I'm not completely mistaken, the concept of Darkholme was based on 616 Kurt in the latter part of the Excalibur run -- the sabre and loincloth e...

This teaser: Image
Supposedly, Marvel has implied that it is related to the "Wanted" teaser. It looks just like this one but with the other word and the creative team of Hopeless and Larroca.

Re: Uncanny X-force Thread

It's somewhat unclear, but I suspect it's getting the relaunch treatment. Most titles seem to be going that way; although, a couple where it might actually make sense due to protagonist changes are not. Regardless, there's speculation that the "Killers" teaser might be for X-Force.

Re: One Year Later - New 52 Still Holds Up?

With the extended arcs and creator changes, everything managed to last a year with us. The hubby's more forgiving than I and has more attachment to the characters. (He also doesn't like dropping stuff in the middle of an arc. :P) As someone who was mostly new to the DCU shortly before the reboot, I'...

Darkholme (Darkhölme? The spelling never was consistent.) as leader could be interesting. There's some speculation that the Punisher will be joining X-Force because his title is ending for him to join a team, and some seem to think that this one is the best fit for him if he's joining an existing te...

Oo! Oo! Spidey got his powers from an irradiated spider, right? The Phoenix is a cosmic force, so the blast was probably cosmic radiation.

Re: Uncanny X-force Thread

Deadpool lost his healing factor in his own series, so that's probably staying around for a while. I was rather confused at his recovery of his looks and the cancer cure, too. Either I completely missed why the serum would fix all that or there was no explanation. :shrug

OK so as I understand it there are now 5 Phoenix empowered mutants (none of which are Hope) busily reshaping the world in their image and a certain someone (won't spoiler it) will be coming back. It's less in their image and more a world-peace-now image. They're rather miffed with the Avengers, tho...

Re: Avengers VS X-Men (AvX 2012)

I'm reading it. When I stop thinking about the bits that bug me, it's enjoyable. Versus has been rather one-sided so far, but it's still early. The WatXM issues have been solid, as usual. I really do like that title. My biggest problem is with the fight itself, I guess. I have a hard time believing ...

Re: AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser I

This title typically has a different artist for each arc, or 3-6 issue chunk of a mega-arc. The styles and colors are usually somewhat similar, so it's not as jarring as it could be. Still, Tocchini was odd. IIRC, around 10 years are meant to have passed since the AoA anniversary mini. I don't remem...

What about "Deadpool MAX" and "Deadpool VS ..." and there's the stuff he appears in with with the same frequency of Logan. I'm pretty sure MAX wasn't 616, but it's over (or ending, if the last issue isn't out yet). If you meant Deadpool Team-Up by the second, it got the axe quite some time ago, and...

Re: Uncanny X-force Thread

I think this title does have someone meant to be the regular artist (Jerome Opeña maybe?), but the shipping schedule seems to make having just one artist nearly impossible because there aren't many artists who can handle more than 12 issues per year. It'd be nice if they could just pick two artists,...
