• jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic Is Gail Simone overrated?. on the Gail Simone board

    I am not impressed by Simone's work. Her writing is neither creative or intelligent enough to interest me. I received WW: Ends of the Earth, as a gift, but couldn't get through the first few pages. Sa...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic Thor #2. on the Thor board

    Lame. Not worth buying. First off, why does her inner dialogue sound like a normal human? And then why does she sound like an Asgardian when she speaks out loud? She apparently knows nothing about T...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic X-men ruined after Marvel NOW!. on the X-Men board

    Basically Bendis has turned Hank McCoy into an impotent mad scientist. This extends to all three versions he has given us. And like every other character in Bendis' X-Universe, he's also sexually fr...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic Were they overrated?. on the X-Men board

    Whedon wouldn't have bothered with X-Men and at least half of his story ideas were inspired by E Is For Extinction. He readily admits that Morrison's work got him back into the X-Men after the clust...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic Worst incarnation of the X-Men?. on the X-Men board

    The worst team was that one Jean Grey put together during the Eve of Destruction storyline: Northstar, girl Sunfire, some transparent loser, and Paulie, the Italian American stereotype, and Dazzler. ...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic Who Are The Worst X-Men Couples?. on the X-Men board

    Kitty Pryde and Icman is the worst pairing ever. It worked in the movies because they made them the same age. In the comics, Bobby is many years older than Kitty and even so, he's often portrayed as ...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic Grant Morrison vs. Joss Whedon. on the X-Men board

    Whedon's run was directly influenced by Morrison's New X-Men, but his take on the concepts were boring. He pretty much repeats the Beast's story arc from E is for Extiction, even having Hank complai...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic British or Asian Psylocke - which do you prefer?. on the Psylocke board

    I've always considered Asian Psylocke to be a stereotype and a gimmick. She's another bad-a** , scantily clad character marketed to teen boys. Originally, Betsy Braddock was a white Brit, underestim...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic why does everyone hate Wolverine's Yellow and Blue costume? . on the Wolverine board

    Because it looks stupid on a guy who is supposed to be a bad a@#*. Is he supposed to be Tony the Tiger? The return of that costume (in the early 90's) represents everything wrong with the character...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic Interview: Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang Talk WONDER WOMAN. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Maybe now they can give WW a life outside these so-called "gods" she's been hanging with. Most of her supporting characters during Azzarello's run have been petty, manipulative, and shallow. Wonder ...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic IhateyouIhateyouIhateyou. on the Humberto Ramos board

    I find Ramos' work too cartoonish and exaggerated. Manga influenced art (in superhero titles) bothers me. I pretty much avoid reading anything he illustrates

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic why does everyone hate Wolverine's Yellow and Blue costume? . on the Wolverine board

    Because when they switched back to the yellow and blue outfit they regressed Logan's character. That's when the loooong downfall of Wolverine began. He stopped being a nuanced and relatively well-rou...

  • jonesy10 posted a message in the forum topic Were they overrated?. on the X-Men board

    Interesting that people think that Morrison turned Cyclops into a jerk; I think he made him sympathetic. And really Scott has been a jerk to the women in his life many times before. How can you forge...
