Astonishing Appearances

#1 Posted by Sling Shot (3562 posts) - - Show Bio

Which X-Man should Whedon and Cassady pull from limbo or bad writing land and make astonishing?

Gambit or Psylocke. Betsy needs to be done properly

I'd love to see Cassady draw Betsy.

I'll put a vote up for Betsy. Get her out of the Exiles and back to 616.

As for Jubilee, no offense Tawa but, please god no!

Am I blanking out? Have they announced who will be on Astonishing when Whedon and Cassady leave? I would almost say just cancel the title.

isn't he dead? or maybe lost the nasty things in his belly?

Maggott was in this pic (seems a little small here):

He died in a Weapon X concentration camp but gave one of his maggotts to a couple kids in the camp in this issue (I think):

Sinister got his hands on the maggot so it would be easy to bring him back since the maggots must be made of his DNA. I thought he had potential, unusual powers are good in my book.

I 'm in complete agreement.Unusual and dynamic powers have a way of refreshing an overly used archetype and adding elements of character. Instead of a run of the mill stronguy with Maggot you have an organic disentigration unit/strong man.

See. Way more interesting than a Sunder type.

I think the ever droll Angel could use some Astonishing. Especially if they made him the ultimate flier with a secondary mutation of solid light wings.

Also Bishop needs some help. take him back to his roots Astonishing style.

Angel and Betsy! They'd make a perfect set

What would you like done with them?

#19 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

With Betsy, I'd like to see a more in-depth portrayal than a lot of the previous stuff, plus she's older than a lot of the other newer x-men so it would be nice to see her wiser and less annoying (her early stuff bugged me).

With Angel, it would be great to see him grow up some. He had the whole thing with Husk but I lost interest so I really don't know how that ended. It would be good to see it expanded upon or dropped and have him come back and again be older and wiser.

Wisdom and maturity are good things for characters that have been around for decades. Cheers.

I think Iceman would be a nice addition to Astonishing. He might steal the show.

#22 Posted by Sling Shot (3562 posts) - - Show Bio

I like Hisak. eh excuse me Armor. She is a cool addition while Whedon and Cssady are around.

And to address the roster thing I didn't htink they would add anyone it's just who we want.

#23 Posted by cpsm1092 (8 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Iceman fits the roster the best, but I really want someone to use Magma

kwannon. in betsy's body of course. it would be a shocker, plus they would give her a really good story.
