Great twist indeed. Loved it. :)

I loved Morrison's run but most people who did not kept saying that he was using too many obscure references to past comics. Now let's see how these people react when Snyder does it and expressly reference a Morrison idea.

Also, it just goes to show how much that whole "the New 52 is for new readers" was BS. ^^

I'm one of those who didn't like Morrisons run.

It wasn't that he was using obscure things from the old continuity but rather the way he did it. I still prefer Snyders writing.

I really hope they show some new Batmans this time around. And I want to see more international versions of Batman's classic villains.

I'd kinda rather see new villains. International versions of classics would just seem kinda lazy and chances are we wouldn't get anything that would last.

Same for heroes. I'd rather see new concepts than, Spanish, German, French, Irish, British, Ruissan Batman.

What can we say? The fan's are angry. They've had enough let downs :(

To be honest my biggest complaint with "the house of ideas" these days is that every new idea involves turnin' a supporting cast member super.

Let's do the list...

Over in HULK General Ross is now RULK, Betty is She-RULK and Rick is A-Bomb.

In Iron Man Pepper is Rescue.

Over in the Spider-verse Flash is Venom.

Who's next? Aunt may or Mr Abrogast as Supergran?

The X-stuff killed off some of their best support. Senator Kelly and moira at the very least and I can't think of any human characters appearing in the X-books anymore.

They're maybe more but I've dropped most of the Marvel books I used to pick up. Even ASM. And I'm a huge Spidey fan :(

Which is perfectly understandable. I wasn't suggesting we purge anyone who voices criticism, criticism is good, but posting things like 'this is f'n s***' (without even reading the material) is ridiculous, but silly me for thinking the community would be a nicer place without it.

Ido kinda agree with you there. People need to find a better way to express themselves. Not sure if they spelt it out properly of *ed it in the original post but still....

:(

fu****'crap

Is good for the community? No, it's pathetic and offputting for newcomers who come to talk about comics, not hate on every single title X company publishes or Y artist illustrates.

The community is doing fine and doesn't require any hand wringing just because some criticism floats around. While you may want to give this series a chance, other readers in the community (myself included) have a perfectly valid right to voice our opinion in this community-based forum when we smell a potential stinker coming along. That's not bad for the community. What's bad for the community is rewarding lazy stories/crossovers whose creative teams don't care about certain characters and can't write with dollars/card swipes because that indulges cash-grabbing habits that keep churning out bad stories/needless cross overs.

Criticism? 'This looks like shit' and 'fu****' crap' is criticism? Wow lol. I'm done here.

And just for the record, I have 0 interest in this series and shall not be picking it up.

I'm with Pheonixguy.

Wolverine with his old memory issues on this team is one thing but 'Tooth with their already confusing history and Magneto who we all thought didn't meet him 'till much later just seem silly to me.

X-stuff pretty much lost me after Wheddons Astonishing. like so much Marvel puts out they've lost their supporting cast and the stories have become too event driven. Bring back some human antagonist and make it about mutants issues again. With out that the whole idea's lost anyway.

And no more changes the past. It only complicates the present.

Oh and....

How long before Marvel's gonna have to write out Magneto's WWII origins? He wasn't frozen in ice like Cap so what age exactly are him and Chuck now?

AND!

Put Chuck back in a chair. With Bab's back as Batgirl there're no big name wheel chair bound characters. For me that was the big appeal with Chuck. He was in the chair but had the most powerfull mind in the MU (at the time at least). What's next? Give DD back his sight?

I used to be a huge Marvel fan. Now I have to remind my self to spell the word with a capital "M" :(
