A little disappointed with the X-Men Sunday panel. The Con is becoming less and less about comic announcements as people are reporting more and more about movie news.
Marvel is pretty good about making the upcoming other conventions have nice announcements.
I guess I was just hoping to get to see some new comic art.
Really glad that Wolverine’s lack of a healing factor will be address in all of his appearances, unlike Iceman’s recent evil turn. Which will only ever be addressed in the future, when some character is listing off sone of Bobby’s lesser moments or when someone else gets their personality changed for the worst.
Glad Peter David is recovering well.
Love the Dodsons, so could not be happier to have them join the X-Men title.
Glad Nightcrawler is returning! I just wished I liked that cast of characters slated to appear in Amazing X-Men. Seems like the Astonishing cast, but with Beast but not really. I would have liked Kitty and Kurt to be on the same team. Wolverine, Storm, Iceman, Northstar, and Firestar, decent lineup. Firestar has not been with the mutants since her origin days back in the 80s. Be curious why she would join now. Has no real connection to Kurt, and only really with Iceman from the Amazing Friends cartoon.
Actually, Newsarama has two follow up interviews from Sunday’s panels.
The Wood/Dodson one is cool. I like how there is going to be a new Sisterhood of Mutants to fight this team of X-Men. I guess some people might say its pretty obvious a villain group for them to fight but screw those people. This is going to be awesome!
They are debuting a new Lady Deathstrike, which I don’t follow Wolverine closely so I’m not sure what happened to the old one or why the old one would want to revamp her image so completely with the skull face. Apparently Wood reveals that her current state is a non-physical one.
Can’t believe its only been three years since Kurt’s death in Second Coming. A lot has happened in those amount of time.
So Amazing is going to be more of the Field team to Wolverine & the X-Men’s School Administrator Team. That must be nice for Jason Aaron’s mind space, to be able to now separate the adventures in his mind.
Aaron gives some love to the original Excalibur comic, as he should.
Looks like Aaron wanted to include Firestar just because she is a mutant and has never been part of an X-Team before, only Avengers and New Warriors.
I keep wanting to add that after issue five of Amazing X-Men, will not have to distinguish between Volume One and Volume Two as the Age of Apocalypse title only lasted the four issues that all of those titles got.
