Uncanny X-Force ... how can I put this into words ... you just can't but I'll try.

To call it a "comic book" is an insult.

Amazing Spiderman is a comic book

Justice League of America is a comic book

Avengers is a comic book

Uncanny X-Force ....is an entity, a spirit that haunts your thoughts and dreams for the rest of your life, a living, breathing world in a league of its own.

Life is more of a "comic book" than Uncanny X-Force

There have been two issues of Brian Wood's X-Men, so far. Before that, under Gischler's pen, the series was average at best. It'd be foolish to try and compare it to Remender's 26-issue (so far) epic.

Oh, and thanks for acknowledging my high IQ.

On topic, I find adjectiveless mostly generic and, quite frankly, irrelevant, particularly in comparison to UXF.

What do you like most about Wood's X-Men Vol. 3; The fact that it's entirely irrelevant to the MU on the whole or the fact that it's just a rehashing of a massively generic and previously overused arc?

I'm not sure what your problem is here, i don't exactly get it. Someone asked for my opinion on something, i gave it. Excuse me if i was that unware of the intricacies that would follow upon commiting such an actrocity, off with my head ! Seriously though, you're calling me out on crap that i didn't even do, would you like to, like, quote me on where, exactly, i said that X-Men Vol. 3 is better than Uncanny X-Force ? Please do, i mean you're always so damn sure of yourself around here, I'm pretty sure you can even quote me word for word you--lol.

No and no. I like the title because the team featured in it is lead by Storm, the same woman who's presence in the MU as a whole has been severed since her marriage to the BP, of which, she benefitted nothing from, that, and as I'm sure, we all know, is my favorite comic book character, i cannot express that more than i have already. I like it because the characters who make up this team, are characters that i am familiar with and like as well, i like it because Colossus isn't simply written as an angsty Russian fool who can only hit things and shouts out "Tovarisch!" when he does so, he's actually getting a personality, i like it because the direction of this team is enthralling and it's different (in some aspects), i like it because this is one of the only X-Books other than X-Factor, WaTX and the sought after Uncanny X-Force where character interaction actually occurs and it's not bland or stupid, i like it because for the past two years since it's creation, this title has been nothing but a witty remark-filled sit-com which did nothing for the characters in it, and the main cast was: Wolverine, Emma Frost and Cyclops (as if we weren't saturated with that roster at the time already), finally, we're moving past that, i like it because this is the X-Men doing what they do best, saving the world one crummy threat at the a time, this is a team of X-Men at their best, with character defining moments and seeds being layed in every issue to provide for an interesting finish. This isn't Uncanny where you get a five page (or, as Gillen has shown, a whole issue) plot summary dedicated to the main antagonist for that arc, then Cyclops shouting at the other members on where and where not to go as well as the occasional Namor/Emma "get a room" scene, no (granted, Uncanny is the best it's been since Fraction took-over, but just not my personal cup of tea). This isn't Legacy where we have Rogue give us a more than elaborated blurb on what went on during her times as a novice X-Man or how she deals with her powers or borrowed ones and the portents that will follow, or, having to put up with the cursed borefest which is Rogneto, a pairing which needs to be damned, stat. This isn't even New Mutants where we have brilliant writers give us not-so-brilliant stories, top that with crappy art of the highest order, silly plot devices and a saving grace is a crossover that manages to link the team in. No, this is X-Men, a title where in only two issues (with a new creative team), has managed to trump every issue that came before it with flying colours and is continuing to do so, this is where you'll see the Mutants we fear and hate, doing what they do best, in a world that fears and hates them.

That, John, is why i like the title so much.

Satisfied ?

Stating that these two issues have trumped every issue that's come before them in the run of X-Men Vol. 3 means next to nothing. I'm not sure how you can get that from reading forty or so pages worth of comic, but have fun reading the remaining few issues nonetheless.

The point about Colossus is entirely unfounded if you've read Gillen's past two years worth of work on Uncanny (starting from before Regenesis and Fear Itself).

I definitely agree with you on that, UXF is actually the only Marvel stuff I read. I like Silver Surfer and Gladiator too because I love that space/cosmic stuff, but for solid entertainment, I love UXF, or Frank Miller's Dark Knight graphic novels (which are DC, as you said). I only like X-Men because Fantomex is affiliated with it somehow.
