I like the Captain America vs Gambit angle, not too surprised with the rest but UGH --- Rogue and Ms. Marvel?

Just, annoying to me, lol.

I'm sorry, Rogue vs Ms. Marvel is a great idea.

@ReVamp:  Its just way too cliche and always ignores like years of continuity. Its like most writers who write the characters ignore the last 20 years of writing and just focus on their bridge fight. So I think potentially good idea too, but also stale and potentially regressive idea. Its basically an idea based on the hey look at us, we are so clever for making these characters fight because of something 20 years ago, hopefully the old school fans will dig it, well... except the old school fans who haven't read their stories past 1984 lol  Plus Gage can be iffy on his character backstories, so as far as writers that might actually not ignore past events?

Hey --- at least Rogue is going up against the new Captain Marvel....(ducks tomatoes)


 I hope that's not like - usually characters that are due for a bump or boost like to get momentum builds in comics -_- 
  
Last time Ms Marvel was getting a push and Rogue was involved - actually you already know. Wa train wreck. lol

@SC: Eh, I'm not sure I agree. If they're going to be on opposing teams, then I think that it only makes sense to pair up characters that have history with each other.

#11 Posted by ReVamp (22859 posts) - - Show Bio

@lykopis: Its not a promotion. Its a needless change of character that isn't going to do anything for Carol and isn't going to help her become the premiere heroine in the MU.

I think only good writing and good comics can do that last part. Let's hope that happens.

If the writer actually remembers that they history together apart from the first interaction the characters had with each other? You get what I mean now? Last time they fought in a story they didn't even bother to put Rogue in her correct uniform for the fight - that's how regressive it was lol - and it ignored the previous status quo. Its otherwise just pandering to nostalgia for the sake of pulling in that extra few readers. I won't dismiss it yet personally, but am really hoping history doesn't repeat itself. If Carey was writing, I could at least know its a writer who characters intimate history. So just weary.

As opposed to how Bendis is currently writing Carol (pretty much the equivalent of how he writes all women really)? Personally I'm stoked even at the effort.

So it's basically, "lets see who can get their ass kicked by Colossus"?

#19 Posted by Dex_Starr (4772 posts) - - Show Bio

I really want to read Rogue vs Ms Marvel

#20 Posted by Illuminatus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

Iceman vs. Rulk? Seriously? An omega-level mutant with the potential to freeze the water molecules within someone's body and create an infinite number of ice constructs which he controls vs. a moderate powerhouse who can absorb energy and punch stuff...........really? F*cking Marvel.

#23 Posted by Walker696 (984 posts) - - Show Bio

Am I the only person that wants to see the Spidey/Colossus fight, Parker has survived fighting other strong characters such Rhino, Hulk, Juggernaut, and recently Thing. He always has a way of thinking around his opponents, its not like he will just run in like an idiot fighting Colossus. This fight has a lot of potential if you ask me and could eventually set up a partnership between the two depending on how things end in the story arc.

Of course not, I simply stated that the identity change to Captain Marvel isn't going to do anything -- its not what's going to make her successful.

I so agree with this. I hope they throw some good marketing as well at this.

Which is what I was getting at.

Yeah I get your point. But even if their past interactions wasn't expanded upon, I think the fight just makes sense.

#27 Posted by Rickbarry (1737 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm into every fight thusfar. Colossus seems to be a selling point, but maybe that's because he's really the only strongman on the X-men team.

Also, how is Bobby going to contend with Red Hulk? The guy is always hanging out in space so freezing him has gotta be out of the question.

Rogue vs Ms. Marvel will be one of those ultimate grudge matches! I can't wait for it!

Although why does Red Hulk show up twice? Isn't once fair enough? I want everyone to get in on the action.

Magik vs Black widow? seriously? how is that even a match? armor (which can take hits from cl 100 demons), intangiblity, magic powers, teleportation, etc...a russian sorcerer supreme vs a russian spy? This is even a worse match up then wonderman vs widow. (still don't know how natsha beat simon in contest of champions 2) let's see illyana go up against strange or thor. (ss or earth vs ss of limbo or god vs hell lord)

Ironman vs mags should be good though, cap vs gambit too. namor vs thing? colossus vs thing? what are they thinking?

depowers the enchantress w/ one move and threatens to kill her

enchanted armor(shrugging of bullets from a battalion of soldiers) ports them to jail instantly.

healing and regen

astral and intangiblity

teleportation

@Illuminatus: The most annoying part is that you just know Marvel is probably going to force Aaron's hand into writing Red Hulk a victory on that one.

Although Aaron has been showing Iceman is ready to unleash his potential, so we'll see. Logic should win, but this is Marvel we're talking about.

It doesn't even make sense that Rulk can even beat Bobby though.

I can see him BFRing him. Or destroying him, and Bobby taking some time to gather himself together and it counting as a "win".

Why the hell not? It's gonna be a chaotic pitched battle so mis-matches will happen. Not every fight is going to be a perfect match power set wise. I'd be disappointed if it was. How good/believable it is depends on the writer, not the pairing. Beside's, it's a bit unfair to call Rulk a moderate powerhouse. Also, just cos Iceman has the advantage being omega-level powered doesn't mean he has the skill and control to pull it all off during a fight. Logan only recently asked Bobby to step up to the plate - i.e. stop dicking about an explore/refine your power. For the record though, I hope Iceman whups Rulks ass as he's an arrogant dick.
