May 21, 2013 1:08 pm He showed up last issue as a last page reveal. If you are vaguely familiar with Illayna Rasputin's somewhat complicated past, you should be able to catch on. If not, the abridged version: She's the mutant teleporting sister of Colossus. She was kidnapped as a child by a demon lord of limbo called Belasco, She eventually killed him, and took over Limbo herself, and has been manifesting a "Darkchilde" inner demon gradually over the years. fast forward to AVX event. The Phoenix Five from AVX are all suffering changes to their mutant powers, except Illayna, who seemed unaffected, or even more in control of hers. It appears that's not the case, and Dormammu is somehow involved. Your caught up!
May 21, 2013 12:28 pm I am taking a "wait and see" approach to this game, but I have to admit, that trailer got me excited.
May 21, 2013 12:24 pm He had a terrible look before, but removing any color from him isn't really the answer either. I do like the cigar, though!
May 21, 2013 12:19 pm I like Ghost Rider too. I think he would be very difficult to write though. He would be challenging in the same way Silver Surfer is challenging...first you've got the challenge of giving them credible villians that have a chance of actually putting them in peril. A vague powerset that focuses on a vehicle, which requires a bit of imagination to put to good use. It all adds up to a headache to me. How many spirits of vengeance does the MU have anyway? I think they should do a four issue mini where Punisher, Ghost Rider, and Moon Knight have a murder competition.
May 19, 2013 2:39 am @ Jpriester...I don't care if OSC is working...I just don't want him working on a flagship character for DC comics, the most famous superhero of all time, and a champion of equality and freedom. If he wants to write the opus of "Chix-Fil-A-Man", I'm all for it, and if DC wants to publish it, then good for them...I'm not going to buy it, but whatever. But I don't think he should be working on Superman, and THAT job I think he should not get. I also think, as others have stated, it would be naïve to think that OSC was the only person working in comics that might be conflicted on the issue of Same Sex Marriage. I really don't care if those other folks have a job at DC or not. But when someone is so outspoken on that polarizing an issue, then I think they are already prepared to deal with the consequences. OSC isn't going hungry without a 1 shot superman story in his bank account. And DC could do worse than to avoid another controversy right now.
May 19, 2013 2:20 am There was also George Perez, and I'm sure there were others I'm not thinking of right now.
May 17, 2013 9:11 pm It sounded like they fixed Green Arrow too...but until some very senior people start leaving the company, I'm not calling anything "fixed".
May 17, 2013 7:36 pm I hear you, and think you have a valid point. However, I can certainly empathize with those fans. The thing is he's not telling an OSC story, he's telling a SUPERMAN story, and I can understand fans having a knee jerk reaction to that...It's conflicting when you want to buy a Superman comic, or support the artist, or something, but a creator that polarizing keeps you from doing so. Right or wrong, I can see those who just don't want someone percieved to spew hate speech associated with Superman in anyway.
May 17, 2013 7:31 pm I'm really really really looking forward to the "Untold History Of DC Comics" book that will come out in 15 years. I'd like to preorder that now, please.
May 17, 2013 7:29 pm No, consipiracy theories are fun, facts be damned! That's not snarky, I'm serious.
