ya know, i was genuinely surprised that fantomex ended up killing schoolkid-apocalypse. at first i thought it was a simple misdirection: trick his teammates into thinking he killed the kid, but he had actually transported him to the world. but instead he did kill apocalypse, and then made a clone from his corpse. from a plot perspective, seems a bit convoluted.

it would be awesome if all of these guys got de-powered then got sent into some gladiator-style arena to battle it out...
at the end of utopia, when the real x-men freed all those prisoners from HAMMER - including professor x and the real beast - did they not dismantle the omega machine? how is it that they failed to rescue - or at least notice - nate grey?
i'm not that familiar with taskmaster, mantis, gamora, midnight sun, or champion...have they all had extensive training, or are they just natural-born fighters?
i also thought about moon knight as a maybe, but i don't know enough about him to judge his fighting chops.
no powers, no weapons, nothing but training and natural ability...this is my list so far:
- matt murdock
- elektra natchios
- natasha romanov
- steve rogers
- bucky barnes
- laura kinney
- raven darkholme
- nathan summers
- frank castle
- luke cage
- iron fist
- nick fury
- victor creed (though it's hard to imagine him without his powers...would he still be huge?)
- wade wilson
- silver samurai
- betsy braddock
good point - the publication dates always throw me off. for that matter, where the heck is wolverine right now - is he stuck in hell or has he just been turned into a vampire?? i can't keep 'em straight.
"...Sex and Violence happend before second coming."
"You want to take about lacking in sentiment look at when Bishop shot Charles Xavier in the head. Notta. Squat."another good point - i did a double-take when i first read that scene. reminded me of when stryfe (posing as cable) shot him in the head during x-cutioner's song - and back then the entire media made a huge deal out of it. but remember, chuck at this point is really in the doghouse, what with the whole kid omega thing...
"I still hope he returns though........hopefully a little younger.... and without the TO virus."smells like teen spirit. x-man?
"I suspect you'll hear and see more references to Cable on the lips of Cyke, Hope, Dom, and Sam than you will Kurt in the near future."i certainly hope so, sir!
and i can't believe i forgot one of the characters he was most intimately connected with (literally - remember when they body-slid together?!): deadpool!! they even shared a monthly title for years!
" @Edamame: I'm hoping that they'll forget that Onslaught Reborn ever happened "ugh...i just read that yesterday. i think he actually BLEEDS in one panel when cap smashes him with his shield!!
am i the only one that thinks cable's recent passing in second coming has gone pretty much unnoticed by the entire marvel universe? yes, cable is a loner, but there were several people that were close to him:
- cyclops: he just gets a bit sentimental, like...once
- hope: she lashes out at scott, then abruptly forgets about cable
- domino: hello? former old over? instead she sleeps with wolverine in x-force: sex + violence...
- cannonball: nothing! i admit cable's relationship with (the old) x-force was strained, but in many ways he and sam had a very strong bond
- that reporter chick who was kind of his girlfriend: do we even see her reaction?
- blaquesmith: not sure if he's even still alive
at least nightcrawler got an entire issue of wolverine: weapon x dedicated to his remembrance. so unless marvel's going to bring cable back real soon - maybe through x-man's recent return - i'm jonesin' for a little more respect.
"...since vampirism in the Marvel Universe is mystical and not because of a virus like in the Blade movies..."is that true, though? i thought in x-men #1, where jubilee gets splashed with vampire blood by the suicide bomber, she gets diagnosed by dr. kavita rao with what looks to be a pathological disorder.
however, i just saw a promo pic of a full-on vampirized x-23. assuming that it's true - then if she can become a vampire, logan certainly can...
