Dark Phoenix - no offense to the team, most of them had already been beaten badly when D.P. was held back from using it's full power by Jean's personality. I don't see any of them lasting that long against a cosmic level psi with bloodlust. also, pretty sure this should be in the battle forum.

And that would honestly be the best thing. Quit overexposing these guys in every book printed with several different writers contradicting each other and killing the credibility of the characters. Focus on developing good stories based on a few characters in the books and get some of the other guys out of writer limbo. Its not like Warpath and Karma and Chamber and Frenzy and Sage are getting exposure. I say get the same old crap with the same old characters off the shelf and do some actual writing and development and pay attention to making quality stories not just putting characters in books just for the hell of it. When I think all the books out there it seems as if there is plenty of room for everybody. Hell when you look at these forums and people are creating teams, generally its kept to 8-member teams at times 9 member teams and generally about 6-7 books. How come everybody here can do it but these so-called genius' at Marvel cant figure that out.
And why do people assume that they have to get a big name to push a story. Funny enough Marvel and DC aren't the only comic books out there and others don't have the huge names these two giants do but still sell. To me it's about the story. But sometimes it seems that Marvel believes if you did a series with Wolverine home-decorating, quilting, playing bingo and bridge at the nursing home, and showing you how to cook for the week in less than 30-minutes, people would buy it just because Wolverine is in it.
Yes. I can get behind this.
Lol sum of you guys are too up on DC comics, everything should be equal and balanced, but I'm confussed meh who cares. I say the price of Atlantis beats her by hiself.
She can cross blades with Aquaman, THE KING OF ATLANTIS. She'll send the Prince to his room to think about what he's done.
I love that costume. What storyline is this from?
i am ready for this "beef' between cyclops & logan to be over.... they work better together, i hate that after years of a rocky friendship to finally have some breakthrough than to turn around and fully breakdown..... i still have hope that all of this is part of some plot between scott & logan cause they know something we and the marvel U doesnt. hell xavier made shaky moves in the past because he thought he was or was doing for the greater good
They were frenemies after jean died(and bury the hacthet) then in schism scott tries to distracted wolverine to not blow up utopia by telling him that jean never loved him(and blah, blah,blah) and it reignited there first rivalry
I wish writers would really get over it. It was amazing to me to go back and re-read all of those classic issues to find out that this "rivalry" was nipped in the bud by Jean herself when she first met Wolverine decades ago. Wolverine held a flame, but life goes on - Jean and Logan were teammates for years with a friendly respect. It seems like a story line that keeps getting resuscitated by writers who don't know how to deal with adult relationships.
Is the Jean Grey School closing? I think that's a terrible thing because there's a lot you can do with it. I also think it's weird when somebody is thrilled a comic is being cancelled. There are so very many comics I don't read or even like, but if they get cancelled nothing changes in my life so I hardly care, much less celebrate.
It's less of a problem if you are a fan of a relatively self-contained franchise; with the X-Men, there are often years where a character that is a fan favorite or at least has a consistent history is misrepresented, made a jobber or pushed to the background because of a particular editorial direction. In terms of WatX and the entire premise of Schism, there was a lot of uncharacteristic behavior and it was often inconsistent between different X titles. So a bad core X-book can lead to your "favorite" characters being dragged through the mud for years. Hence the celebration.
why does this have to be so convoluted and really just overall stupid. I expected better from PAD but this aboit the dumbest of the dumb. I really hate that about so many of the x- characters. Their backgroud stories are needlessly confusing and ridiculous. Sometimes I'd rather someone come along and kill these characters off so we dont have to deal with, try to understand, or try to explain this type of nonsense
A reprint of Giant Size X-Men; I bought it after the X-Men animated series came on TV and I had read a (bad) X-Men comic that was in the Fox Kids newsletter. I did some research, found out that the team had a longer history and thus commenced my hobby as a fan.
Get rid of the damned veterans. Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Beast and a lot of the senior leaders just have old ideas, stale ideologies and are no longer relevant. Plus, they continually bring drama and past history to whatever they are involved in. Send them off in style - give them a retirement party, send them to teach full-time or be on hand for occasional large events, but just clear the air of the old guard completely. I feel no need to give these characters "teams" for nostalgia's sake when they've never seemed to accomplish anything worthwhile.
We need new stories, new characters and new villains for them to deal with.
