June 8, 2013 9:41 am I was all excited until I saw Greg Land's name. Fuck that noise.
June 3, 2013 6:56 pm Seems like an easy fix. Just change the name and vague up some of the details, and you've got yourself an interstellar terrorist organization. Call them the Truthkeepers or something.
May 30, 2013 5:44 pm I wanted to like this more than I did. It wasn't bad, by any stretch, but it felt sort of random, I guess. Like a story you could take or leave, even in terms of character exploration. The only exception to the character thing is Jubilee. But I just keep thinking: Who the hell are these people? What is the premise? I mean, I know the general answer from other books, but I guess I wanted an opening story that would define the book in more specific terms than this. The art is spectacular though.
June 28, 2012 7:56 pm Or become Star Sapphires. >_>
June 19, 2012 8:35 pm #224.1 sets up the characters and the overall premise, for the most part. Though I personally would suggest starting with the miniseries, Madrox: Multiple Choice and working your way through from there. It's worth it.
June 12, 2012 12:12 am But it shouldn't necessarily be. Star Trek had a pretty great effect on some people by having a multi-cultural crew in space, when the mindset at the time was "That's so unrealistic." Nowadays, we're kind of over it. Media has the opportunity to show the world as it should be versus how it currently is. Of course, there's a time and a place for that sort of thing. But these are superhero titles we're talking about. I'm sure it wouldn't hurt, in many cases, to have more diverse ensembles.
June 8, 2012 11:49 pm I don't think it's necessary to choose one or the other. I loved "Aliens" and will watch it many times in the future, I'm sure. I'm also looking forward to a possible Prometheus sequel as its own story, still connected to the Alien universe. It's not an X vs Y scenario for me.
June 1, 2012 9:26 pm I think the point that many have made here is that it was not their original intention to treat this as anything beyond the normal "big revelations" that comics have all the time. Fans ran with it, and DC responded because it would be strange of them not to at that point. No one is denying that they wanted to sell comics. But the notion that they tried to explode this story immediately is untrue.
June 1, 2012 9:07 pm Thanks for you input.
May 22, 2012 8:28 pm Northstar, along with his boyfriend, were a major part of the entire Alpha Flight mini-series (or whatever we're calling it now) that came out just last year. So yeah, this isn't coming out of nowhere. In fact, it's a very natural progression of events that makes complete sense. It just so happens that it's also perfect timing.
