not a lot of choices i would have guessed. Huston could be good. Edgerton would be alright. I think out of the whole bunch though that Pace would be the best choice.

it's kind of cool what they have been doing with hawkeye is recent years. he's been one of my absolute favorites since i was a kid, so it's great to finally see him universally acknowledged as the competent, wise-cracking, bad-ass he always has been. my only fear is that he's almost in deadpool territory of exposure, and remember about two or three years ago when he was somehow in every book? even the cover for the new ultron event coming out has him dead center as the last avenger. the android is standing on an unconscious hulk and thor, but hawkeye is standing. other than maybe one avengers book and his crazy fun solo series, i hope they just don't kill his likeability the way they almost butchered deadpool's (and they would have entirely if not for remender getting his hands on him for a bit)

see, i doubt there going to keep you know who as spider-man because after a while people will get maaaaaad, but the number one thing that just cannot happen is peter dying. again, ultimate doing that was interesting. killing him off in this world, not so much. if a whole split personality a la hulk thing happens then...oooookay but i don't know. just my two cents.

i don't want to take away from the awesome moment, because it totally was, but doesn't nightcrawler need to see where he's going in order to teleport?

just me or does magneto's costume look dumb? in fact, i don't really like any of these new outfits. so, we're just gliding past the whole murdered xavier thing and letting him lead a group calling themselves x-men? ballsy.

This makes all kinds of sense. If only she weren't on the avengers now as well. I know they've done the whole Wolverine being on both and whoever else but take a second and think of this new position. The X-Men have never not had someone in charge.

You list everyone up there but the two stand-outs were Xavier and Cyclops. They were always seen as the two that would eventually return to their post. There may be a good chance Xavier's death sticks in the way that Jean's has I'm beginning to believe. Over the past few years they've really been weaning Xavier off of readers and he became a background character at best. His reputation tarnished (it makes sense for story telling but still, what a way to screw years of history) and his son, an old enemy, being a more prominent member than he was at the time were the biggest factors.

Rogue makes a lot of sense because she fits everything the team needs, they are a race that needs someone who isn't a mass murderer who has redeemed herself significantly and has the leadership traits to back it up and Rogue has that in spades.

If Cyclops goes this route that it looks like he's going, it's cool because it shows the Xavier as a figurehead, which was taken over by Cyclops, as well as Magneto now stepping out of his light and being replaced by Scott. He may have been right, but he's about to become a fugitive and a possible enemy. Like I said, the X-Men are about redemption and Rogue did that because of how she started but Cyclops cracked up. He can't really come back after globally being seen as someone who placed the planet in jeopardy with a cosmic entity. They were afraid of mutants when they just had powers.

Also, I kind of see Wolverine after X-Force wrapping up to be more of just an avenger and headmaster. Maybe they'll actually let him not be on 4 different teams (hey, a guy can dream).

why does alfred look like he could beat up batman? creative liberties are one thing but come on.

this looks pretty damn good. the second was a train wreck so it's nice to see that they're at least looking like they're trying again, and realizing they can't solely rely on downey jr's charm and humor. i'm glad they chose ben kingsley to play the mandarin, i think he's a really great choice. he may be apologizing because his weapons are probably being used to do things such as what that memorial is for?

The Hawk Block was spectacular, belongs in best stuff of the year.

that's a good idea. i think at the end of the year a 'best stuff of the year' would be really cool to see.
