@DEGRAAF: Yes, I'd like that too :)
There's been a lot of positive feedback to this fan art of Magneto in a refined magenta suit. Perhaps a more classy & regal look is what the Master of Magnetism needs now?
@The Dark Huntress: Sorry, I was glad Gen Hope was cancelled :}
@VanAce: True, and I'm sorry for being bitter & jaded. I'm sure there will be many people who will enjoy it. But it is interesting that there's this event/cross-over while AvX is going on. One X-Men event isn't enough?
@The Dark Huntress: I gave up midway the Fear Itself arc. Necrosha was the best this series got, and now it has taken to long to morph into a new incarnation that justifies the title of 'New Mutants'. It's moot and still doesn't make sense to split the team up, replacing members with X-Man & Blink. And while I like the idea of Dani using her Valkyrie connections, I'm sick & tired of them being wheeled out on an annual basis to satisfy the need for a leader with powers. Storm managed to lead the X-Men for several years without falling back on any other powers, so Dani's connection to Valhalla shouldn't be a cheap cop-out for yet another cross-over :(
I remember looking forward to this series so much, but now I just wish they'd cancel it before it gets even more embarrassing. Other titles have been even more short-lived when they had more to offer than this.
@The Dark Huntress: To be fair, X-Men Legacy is also a cross-over war child. But that came in second place to New Mutants as it didn't have the Norse connection.
It does seem that they're annually plumbing Dani's Valkyrie heritage, to coincide with the non-X cross-overs :(
@The Dark Huntress: I'd agree if it weren't for the fact that the New Mutants hadn't been the cross-over bee-yotch ever since it started: Necrosha, Siege, Second Coming, Heroic Age, Age of X, Fear Itself, ReGenesis & now this... Only 18 issues out of the current 37 have been non-cross-over stories! That means 19 issues are connected to cross-overs or events. Cross-overs are renowned for spiking sales, but how can they justify crossing over more than 50% of issues? :(
And that's not even counting the fact that the 'Fall & Rise of the New Mutants' was connected to a cross-over from the 1980's ;p
Very VERY nice Stephanie Hans poster!
It seems that now the New Mutants can't cross-over with X-Men Legacy, they've branched out a little. Now that Dani hasn't got any powers, they've plumbing her Valkyrie connection for what... the third, fourth time in the last couple of years?
