September 17, 2012 7:20 am Wow. AvX #11...literally the rancid lid to go on top of the hot garbage that this series has been. Thank god for Remender. Sign me up for "Uncanny Secret Dark Avengers Force" or whatever it's called when it comes out. Until then I'll wait until Quesada & Co. are done relieving themselves on the good faith of readers. "Marvel NOW?" More like, "Marvel when I get around to it"...

Marvel NOW! That Was Then: Uncanny X-Men, Fantastic Four, Captain America and More to End in October
July 10, 2012 1:48 pm I feel like Marvel is pissing on my rug, which sucks because it really tied the room together...
June 12, 2012 12:20 pm I agree with Josh - if Fraction and crew start calling Cyclops, Emma, Colossus, Namor and Magik the "Phoenix Force Five," I will quit comics. I want to be with Storm, Magneto, and the people who are drinking this away somewhere else. Or in Ibeza.
January 10, 2012 1:04 pm I just want to say three things and then I'm done. #1. glcfarmboy - I could not disagree with your assessment of this book/series more if I tried. In fact, after following iFanboy for several years, I am only now actively joining the community and posting just to say that. (Ron, Josh, Conor and the gang can thank or blame you later) #2. This was truly a masterful end to what has been easily the best surprise run of 2011. I loved the X-Men as a kid and then grew out of them after the Age of Apocalypse (which I have said was the last great X-Men story) - I've even emailed in to razz Ron on occasion for his unwavering loyalty to the X-titles, even in House of M times. That said, there have been few, FEW, X-issues that have managed to dovetail a brilliant recent story with decades of mythos. Wolvie finally getting Jean, only to let her go again. Wolvie giving Creed/Sabretooth (his mortal enemy in our realm) his katana as an ultimate sign of a samurai's respect. Losing Angel. Losing AoA Sunfire and WildChild...while keeping their costumes in our reality and elevating them to heroes of the canon. Apocalypse/Genesis. Psylocke. Even effin' Deadpool. All SO Good. I laughed. I cried. I put in plastic. #3. The only thing missing was Opena. This was as much his story as Remender's and it blew my mind that he wouldn't draw such an important footnote to this tale. Unreal. To that end, I'm going to try to use something like Kickstarter and see if I can build enough consensus/money to get Marvel to re-release that issue with Opena drawing it. Nothing against Rodriguez, but it's like watching a great baseball player hit a grand slam, and then have another player run from third base into home plate. Opena deserved to bring it home. And I am spent.
