March 31, 2010 12:56 pm How is this a shoehorn if they're using an established plot point from less than a year ago? I think it makes perfect sense.

@drakedangerz--uh, Kitty is Jewish, and actually used to have very specific features until other artists came aboard and made her generic.

 Kitty should come back and immediately hit the little girl's room. She has to have been holding it for quite awhile. 

March 16, 2010 1:01 pm Is this an ongoing or an LS?
February 12, 2010 12:33 pm I haven't been paying attention the hype for either of these books, so I'm not sure what the speculation is. One of those guys in Secret Avengers looks like War Machine. One is probably Moon Knight. That couldn't possibly be Deathlok at the end there, could it?
February 3, 2010 7:43 am I still miss the Blood Syndicate. :-(
July 27, 2009 8:52 am Here's hoping they dont just break up the team simply because the book has ended. And how come books with absolutely no sales lik Runaways gets chance after chance after chance, yet we've heard nothing about a relaunch of this book?  What they need to do is give the title a few months break; have the characters show up in other titles perhaps being a major player in a major storyline; then revisit the series again down the road. These characters are too good to simply ignore.
July 23, 2009 12:37 pm I agree, much better than I thought. My only gripe is that what's going on in this isn't really being reflected in Dark Avengers, but that's the nature of books like this nowadays. I'm completely surprised by how interested I am in seeing Daken worm his way around Norman's team.
July 14, 2009 7:48 am Fraction has been a bit of disappointment so far with this story, which shouldn't be a surprise since he's been hit or miss on the regular X-men book. I'm just sick of the old go to story of a anti-mutant group rallying support for the oppression of mutants. It seems like everytime a new writer comes aboard this is the story they go to. It's boring.
July 7, 2009 7:08 am I've gotta say, two issues in and I'm really enjoying this. I'm in for the long haul as long as it stays like this. Good but not spectacular art, simple stories that feel like the 90's X-men. Very enjoyable.
June 17, 2009 10:09 am I dug the first issue, but this is gonna seem weird considering what happened in the last issue of The Boys.
