X-club #3

My love for Dr. Nemesis and his subconscious spouting starfish knows no bounds!

2 pages of love behind the cut (as we will reach max pages posted per new issue)

Stranded in the depths of the ocean with no way to survive, Dr. Nemesis conquers all!

That's going on my WALL!

It's like a bizarre teleportation accident involving Dr McNinja and Dr Insano! :D

Empathic starfish is totally the new Khaji-Da.

So is Box going to keep the starfish in a jar for whenever X-Club need a laugh?

So he's just Dr. McNinja mixed with Deadpool? But I read those already.

I was thinking the same thing. Its like a page out of Chris' book got lost and ended up at Marvel

Dr. Nemesis really is the Marvel answer to Crazy Awesome, isn't he?

Marvel, I love you, but it's safe to say we're done here. Best of luck in any other endeavours.

I want to like this (that's a pretty rad drawing of a giant mutant shark, after all) but I find Nemesis tendency to speak entirely in catch phrases to be rather annoying than amusing.
Randomly saying "science" every five seconds just isn't funny.

Out of all the crap Marvel has pulled, this was the last straw for you?

Ok, that's pretty damn awesome :)

This and the previous scans for this issue have convinced me I need to be buying this book. There'll never be another Nextwave, but this'll help compensate. And anyway, SCIENCE! (sorry, I'm afraid I do find shouting SCIENCE! at intervals to be very funny :dork:)

Mini. But it is the X-Club's *second* mini, so it's unlikely to be the last you see of them :)

Agreed. Dr Nemesis is a character I keep being told is awesome, but who leaves me pretty much cold. The starfish works because it constantly mocks him.
icon_uk: (Default)

[personal profile] icon_uk 2012-02-03 01:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Perhaps he thinks it's jumped the shark?
salinea: (keep going)

[personal profile] salinea 2012-02-03 01:37 pm (UTC)(link)
It didn't think it also applied to not finding comics that try for whimsy havok very hard without achieving it not actually funny.

I am duly chastised.
salinea: fem!Loki is snerking (lol)

[personal profile] salinea 2012-02-03 01:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Technically I think it's the shark doing the jumping :)

[personal profile] jaysonbyron 2012-02-03 01:39 pm (UTC)(link)
So if I wanted to read a trade that introduced Dr. Nemesis, what would it be? There's a skip in my local library's X-Coverage and I don't think any of the San-Fran stuff is really present--would it be around there?

Really I'm looking for stuff leading up to Utopia, not Utopia itself, because they have that hardback and it's pretty awesome.

[personal profile] janegray 2012-02-03 01:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Doesn't the starfish simply vocalize Nemesis' own thoughts?

Have you ever considered writing dialogue for Horatio Caine? ;)

[personal profile] icon_uk 2012-02-03 02:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Hence, the mockery.

Sorry, I realise that could have been phrased more clearly. The starfish provides a sort of running joke by saying what Nemesis would never want to have said out loud.

Awwwww.... You know I'd never chastise you.

"Sharking the jump" does have a certain ring to it :)

Is it me, or do you hear Dr. Nemesis' Starfish Voice as the voice of She Blinded Me With Science by Thomas Dolby?

After they got to San-Fran Beast put the team together to find the x-gene. They started out with Hank, Angel and Godzilla's creator on the team as well. The last one died the morning after they moved to Utopia.

Reminds me of those old comics where everyone says "groovy" all the time. Not so sure it's a good idea to write dialogue based on "what the cool kids are saying these days".

I'm saying there is no way to top this, so they might as well end it on a high note.

That's how I hear Dr. Nemesis' voice. It makes all his dialogue even better.
