Does anyone truly love this guy???

#1 Posted by papad1992 (6829 posts) - - Show Bio

Imo... I really don't like him and don't approve of how he's a member of Uncanny X-Froce!!! Other peeps might like him but I find him cliche-ish!!!

That's pretty much the point, though i think he's awesome anyway.

And he's not actually French, IIRC.

 whore jk 
but really he's interesting that he has different powers 
he has those Telepathic influence powers and the external nervous system 
but he seems smart since he can shield his mind from other telepaths 
as far as being like deadpool NO Fantomex keeps everything secret hence the french accent Deadpool tells people everything all the time

So far in X-Force I think he is pretty cool, but that's the only place where I've read him

I'd suggest picking up his appearances in New X-Men if you're interested in learning more about him.

i think hes preety cool , and hes way different to deadpool the whole addition of eve and his mental realted stuff makes him an intresting addition in my view.

#22 Posted by biggkeem89 (1421 posts) - - Show Bio

Fantomex is pretty awesome. He injects that extra amount of cool into every situation, and then Deadpool adds the crazy

@webhe4d If you have the money I'd suggest getting the ultimate collection trades. It's Grant Morrisons entire run in three TPBs.

@The Dark Huntress: 
Sweet thanks for all the help. I love to draw, and getting by art is not a problem. It's just like a person's personality... Some people act differently than other people, just like people have different styles of art. I normally never judge a persons' artwork. I'm a pretty down to Earth dude

No problem. I love being able to introduce people to story lines and characters that I love. This was one of my favorite runs of X-Men ever and it brought Emma Frost back onto the map and introduced two pretty badass characters (Xorn and Fantomex). That's true about art.

Do you really think Quitely's art is that bad? Personally, whilst it can be a little stylized at certain points during the run, I tended to really quite dig how he portrayed the characters; Also, I loved his redesigns of the costumes, and all in all, I generally favour his art.

I liked the redesigns. Except for Emma's. I'm not a fan of the camel toe look. His art in this was that bad, yes. The heads look like lumpy potatoes. His art in Batman and Robin isn't that bad. His art in New X-Men.....was horrific.

@webhe4d: Same here, and his appearances in that series has made me really like his powers.  I am fascinated by his look and his powers, so I plan to read more of him.  Let me know what you think of him in New X-Men.  I might pick those up if I ever get the chance.

Heck yeah he is!  Either way I'm just glad they have him back in action. For a while there I thought he was doomed for the purgatory of undeveloped X-characters.

Well, the thing about cliches, is the set up, and then subsequent attempts to make them seems deeper than the facade they present, and see with Fantomex, thats his theme, on the surface, everything about him is cliche, but also false. He ain't my favorite, and I linger a slight grudge against him, because I am a Darkstar and X-Factor fan lol, but for real, he has some real potential, plus would play off so many characters so well. Right now, his interaction and conversations with Deadpool, have been great, and he adds an interesting new dynamic to Angel Betsy relationship.  
 
Just imagine the possibilities with him and Gambit on a mission together. I really cant wait to see if PAD might right him in X-Factor. I see him and Jamie arguing, M being really snobby to him, and Shatterstar wishing to engage him. (uh warrior fighting and all that not lol)

I'm enjoying it so far, but it's hard to really gauge a book only a few issues in.

Does it hold up to the quality of story telling and art that was displayed in X-Force?

Fantomex is an inspired creation, and is, one of the, unfortunately, few reasons remaining to pick up X-Books.

I'd say X-Force was a little better on both.  The current story arc is one we've seen a few times before, so I'm waiting to see what they do with it before I form a real opinion.  It's been interesting to see the Deadpool dynamic added to the book though, so far it hasn't taken away from the gritty tone of the book.

I'll be sure to pick up an issue or two tomorrow, then. Thank you for the feedback.
