Use Old Man Logan as a spice, not a protein. Allow the team books time to breathe before getting them embroiled in a line-wide crossover. TBH, I didn't like the Civil War II: X-Men miniseries, but at least it was a four issue mini that didn't really touch what was happening in the team books.
I love this idea so much. March and April are nightmarish for my time professionally/personally, but I'll be lurking for May.
Yeah, I don't think it's justified, and that's just the synopsis I found most easily. I seem to recall other editorial mentions that her next arc would be cosmically-oriented. The rest of your comment is basically what I was getting at--it'd be nice if this were some indication that Marvel was going back to caring about the logistics of being in multiple places at the same time, but in this case, it's seemingly applied only to Wolverine and not the other characters running around everywhere.
She was running around with All-New X-Men, but that's ending this month.
Marvel has indicated her new story arc in ANW will keep her out of team action for a minute. This synopsis seems to track with that: http://comicsalliance.com/all-new-wolverine-resurrxion-leonard-kirk/
Which, okay, I guess it's good that Marvel's finally considering physical logistics wrt characters being on multiple teams, but it seems a little arbitrary.
But will my pull list? (Answer: probably)
I also like the character, but am worried about oversaturation.
So, various x-editors have mentioned that Emma will have a big role going forward. On the one hand, that could just be, "the next big bad" (sad!). On the other hand, it could be more interesting? I suppose I'm mostly pessimistic, but I'm trying to hold out hope it'll be at least complex.
Soule wants to correct the record: it's a cast not a team.
(the worst type of correction).
1 and 2: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I share your OML :/ x 1000. I also don't have much affection for Gambit or Bishop, but I can get over that.
I am also unsure how I feel about Soule on writing. He was affable on the podcast, but the only thing I've read of his is IvX and I was a hard meh on it.
I found the treatment of Emma one-dimensional, but I do like the idea that she's left a little unhinged and potentially villain-y for the next little bit. Also, I still reallllllly don't care for most of the Inhumans (excepting, of course, Moon Girl and Ms. Marvel), so if Emma is constantly trying to take them down, I'd be pretty into seeing that happen.
Won't be picking up the "epilogue" in Uncanny Inhumans, tho. Not at all.
What with the reveal this (last?) week that Old Man Logan was joining another team book (bringing his count to three?), and with Wolverine not being part of any team books (though ANW is so, so good), is anyone else a little nervous that Marvel side-stepped the "old Wolverine is dead" issue entirely are going (have already gone) back to their old ways of Logan having a finger (claw?) in every story arc?
It does seem like OML takes a backseat to the narrative in his team appearances (at least in the last couple years), which is positive, but I am a bit annoyed that there's a perfectly good (great! Amazing!) Wolverine running around that they're not using outside of her own book.
Not saying I had any idea what was happening. Also, maybe now I know why I like the soap opera so much.
That local grocery store was also an Ingles.
I think this was my first one. I know it was in the middle of X-Cutioner's Song, and that I had to backtrack (from the measly offerings at the Ingles grocery store (!!), because I wasn't aware comic book stores were a thing) to piece together the backstory.
Definitely remember reading the first couple pages, where Apocalypse is dragging himself up a cliff and only sorta getting what was happening after 3 passes.
At least Apocalypse Wars was contained within individual titles. It was an event in that all the titles did something with Apocalypse, but it was refreshing that Young Cyclops didn't pop up in whatever dystopian future EX was running around in just because he wasn't involved in ANX's story arc.
Yeah, it'd be nice, but yeah.
This is a good take on it, though it highlights (for me) that if this is what Editorial wanted to build toward at the end of Secret Wars, they could've done a lot more throughout the year+ to get there.
I appreciate that the young mutants and NuHumans are the ones that seem like they'll solve this together, but would've liked to see more of it throughout last couple of years in the individual titles. I'm not saying this was totally absent (Young Bobby/Romeo, Forge/Moon Girl), but there wasn't all that much (and even though there was a Forge/Moon Girl team up story in Extraordinary X-Men's annual, in IvX 5 Forge seems like he has no idea who she is or how she could improve his design).
I guess I'd be down for that? As long as she sticks around in the post-IVX world for a bit
Yeah, after the #0 and #1, this crossover went downhill toot suite. I've only read the ANX and EX tie-ins, but they've been stronger.
Which is a downer, because it's basically relying on Marvel to trust that the book will be successful as a trade (but I'm basically in the same boat). It looks like, at least with the main series, and at least the first trade of WoW, that'll be the case. Hopefully it'll stick.
I dropped World of Wakanda after 3 issues. The writing wasn't grabbing me, tbh. Will check it back out in trade. I thought this about Coates's early issues, too, but I'm not sure Gay's style lends itself to serialized storytelling (I.e., I think it'll read better in trade than month to month).
All of that is beside this point: I'm glad Marvel is running with expanding the Black Panther line and that they're working with such quality writers.
Gonna pick up IvX, Extraordinary, Black Panther, and last week's Old Man Logan.
I like the cut of your jib.
I'd go with "alternate universe," leading to the question: is Gabriel Knight the Gambit of any of these Earths? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiverse_%28Marvel_Comics%29#Main_alternate_universes
Personally, I'd go with Jim Shooter's New Universe (Earth-148611), just 'cause.
I don't really see the Inhumans' side of things. Releasing the Terrigen was a conscious choice. It also has the effect of forcing conversion on those who may or may not want it (Moon-Girl touches on this).
Tangential: Terrigen is poison to a group of individuals. I'd read a court drama about trying to hold the Inhumans accountable for over-polluting environment.
Magik's is so good. No boob window!
