GRAND MAGNETO THREAD

Paty here... a last hurrah before I dismantleMagnus..that's my computer...to move him elsewhere.
I am rearranging rooms in the house to get Dave as far away from the possibility of birdie germs as possible. He just spent ten days in the hospital for an infection that, thankfully, was not tracable to the birdies, as they are gram negative and humans are gram positive. but there is no use taking chances and his old room opened on the bird area. so he goes to the furthest foom from them... which means breaking down and moving everything in both rooms! sigh...
so I haven't been keeping tabs on too much but I do hear that BOTH Kubert boys jumped ship at Marvel... where they have been for most of their carreer... at Philly con this weekend. they are signing a three year exclusive contract with DC. Now, could that be because they cannot stomach things Marvel is planning? their father escaped the Holocaust by the skin of his chinny chin chin...and Joe senior lost relatives to that terror. could the possibility that Marvel wants to divest itself of it's heroic connection to WWII via Captain America and hi't Jewish holocaust connection via Magneto, and the Kuberts are taking offense at this blatant historical monkeying? Or have working conditions gotten so bad at Marvel that the K boys have had enough? Editors, in their hubris, telling writers what to write and artists how to draw...and such nonsense. editorial has gotten entirely too full of itself these days, especially since Marvel doesn't have any editors worthy of that title.
New Excalibur will be Origina Excalibur revisited... back to England and such. Claremont has been stripped of Mags and Xavier by bullies who want to destroy Magneto... and are gonna do so finally in House of M... which had it's origins before Avengers Disassemble. both were engineered by Millar, who used Bendis to write them... but the ultimate goal was to take Magneto from Claremont, who was restoring Magneto's viability as a reasonable person with issues, and to blast him , via this House of M plotline, back into super eeeeeevil supervillainy...as well as get rid of that pesky holocaust connection.
the Marvel little ratzis are divesting themselves of ethnic and feminine influences. They just killed Sunfire over in the Rogue series, also schedulled for cancellation, I hear... and Christina Weir and hubby are gone.New teams and editorial are all male...the boyos have cleaned out the treehouse and are hauling up the rope ladder and telling anyone who is not to their liking and of their stilted thinking, to leave. I expect them to badger Claremont outta the company first, cuz he is the easiest target, being an easy going guy and wanting to get along. Peter David will be harder to get rid of, although they tried it a while back by issuing "rumors" to the effect that he was being replaced... but Peter didn't go along... he challenged that and they had to back down. Bendis will be the last to be kicked in the teeth, because he is their willing tool... so they may keep him so they can point to him as their "Jew friend" as I believe Millar characterized him on his board.
House of M is starting out gently, but the hints and sniggery grins tell all. They are gonna trash Mags...AGAIN! And when they do, I am gone ...along with a whole bunch of others, and as many other people I can convince to join the boycott. they won't hear us scream... they willjust hear the resounding silence of the cash registers.
Hell hath no fury as Marvel will see if they trash Mags or take away his backstory that Claremont gave him. that's a promist, Marvel!
I am not gonna read new Excalibur or buy multiple copies as I did with Excalibur of Genosha. That dealt with Mags and Xavier... and storylines planned and hyped for it went in the shitcan when the subversives pushed House of M to stop what Claremont was doing with Magneto.
The key players at marvel lie through their teeth to the fans all the time. they tell us this or that won't happen and then smirk when it does. They say "when the fans scream, we know we are doing something RIGHT." so they cannot lose, can they?
It's not about the characters any more... it is about the editors and writers and their private agendas and propaganda. comics are still a great way to influence young minds...and young minds now are the future of America.
Personally, if they succeed, I am glad I am old enough not tohave to deal with the kind of "America" these creeps are fostering.

so, since i disconnect Magnus today, , I think, I will probably not be online for awhile... and no, I have not see the first issue of House of M... I have talkee about it with others who have... I gotta have a WORD with my comics shop!!! It wasn't in my bundle this week...and they sould KNOW better!!!
Dave is doing just fine...and will be offline for the same reason I will be offline... total upheaval of two rooms in the house...LOL...

Later, guys...

Paty,

Interesting theory for when you get back.

They think about 10% od crop circles (the ones they cannot prove are man-made) are the result of eltromagnetic forces acting abnormally. Oh the possiblities, no?;)

Anyway, hope the move wasn't too hard.
And tell Dave I hope he stays well.

LOL... the move was arduous... I had to move all my junk outta my room, clean it, and move Dave's stuff from his room to that one. Then I had to clean his old room and move all my stuff that I could fit... I had to lose two big pieces of furniture... back in... but it is coming along nicely, actually. Give me a couple more days and all will be rearranged. The living room gets a makeover, too... since I am closing off one door to it with furniture on the other side...my room... LOL... so I can use that door as a wall, now... and the possibilities for rearrangement abound! LOL.the birdie cages I was getting Dave away from are still there, but I have a few ideas...LOL

Magnetic fluxes... hmmmmmmm the mind boggles... was it Magneto???Himself???!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA could be...
I have the terrible feeling that the Magneic fluxes of the planet are off kilter...and that we are overdue for that axis shift... which will, of course, wipe out most of us pesky human fleas... not tomention the superhero universes aswe know them. Probably just desserts and a welcome conclulion to superheroes in general. I think I would rather see the world flip and wipe out everything than to see RBm back at Marvel... but that is up to the whim of the Gods. RBM back at Marvel is a dire possibility, since at Philly Con Marvel announced that it would be signing a "big name writer" this summer and guess who's contract with DC is up? PTUI!!!

Bad news for us Magophiles. the internet bullies/Morrison mindslaves seem to have carried the day. Not enough of us die hard Magneto fans... or Claremont hfans hit the boards... so House of M will probably send him back into mindless ratbadtardy and wipe out his backstory to boot...along with, possibly Captain America...although how you can divorce Cap from WWII is beyond me... but rumors say that is what they are trying to do... cut the timeline strings...and if you do it for Mags, you have to do it for Cap, too. Wonder about namor...??? Sgt fury and the Howlers? Oh, right, Nicky poo is in SHIELD now... no conflict there... WWII didn't exist for him. Right...

I figure after House of M, I wil boycott Marvel products. I am not sure I care about Uncanny any more, since Chris rolled over on Mags. I don't bleme him, having to feed a family and all and knowing a hopeless cause when the rug has been pulled out from under him and deposited him on his fanny... but if the Magneto they are gonna leave us with bears any resemblance to the Planet Xcrement Magneto, which is what they are probably gonna do to get Morrison back... I am outta here...with mymoney and my good wishes for anything Marvel. I may continue to get Nightcrawler as long as it survives...just for Dave...But I will be gone from X ville. done! Outtahere!!!

Rivka and I have been tossing around the idea of putting up a Magneto site devoted to the Claremontean Magneto... timelines, fics, art, etc....but we are waiting to see how bad it will get before we consolidate our plans. We shall see. the same friend who debugged my computer after the attack runs a hosting company and says she gan guarantee top of the line graphics ans well as securty up the wazoo. she will maintain it for us, too... so maybe we can keep the REAL Magneto alive until all the imposters fall by the wayside... or until Marvel wises up a bit. If we do this, I will let this thred know for sure!

Meanwhile, I wait with fear and trepidation the machinations of the smarmy folk at Marvel. I will not yell or scream, for their little sadistic brains would be overjoyed... but I will watch what they are doing...andmake my own preperations. they won't get off scot free on this.

Thanks, Erin...I am just soooo tired of Marveland it's juvenile crap! Sooner or later one would think that the people upstairs would wake up. First place with a circulation of eighty thou is not first place with a circulation of over two hundred thou! there was a huge readership... lots of them females...in the eighties when chris was telling real stories without interference. can't anyone upstairs in the money department make that connection??? Can't they call the editorial goofballs on this? I guess not...
Well, if they bring that asswipe, Morrison , back they may find their fortunes declining further... cuz the old guard who are paying their bills right now will have had enough...and split.
It's a sad day... but maybe Marvel has to rot a little longer for something readable to sprout. .. after the toxic waste has run it's course. But the question is... will there be a Marvel to come back to?

Practicaly? At some point, yes there will be.
But that will be a long time coming, I think. *sigh* Oh well, we will get though this.

Y'think? I am old enough that I may never see it. I would hope sanity would come back there before I croak off.k.. but my money isn't on it.
My only hope is that they will go too far with House of M... just as they did with Planet Xcrement. but we shall see, shan't we?
