I remember these uniforms!

ah - the good old days....

There's a pretty awesome Jean uniform that shows up in this issue that I've never seen before. Looks kinda like the Phoenix design, but it's blue and yellow, with the same kinda stylized straps and such as the other team outfits.

Which you can see in the scan above. Price I pay for skimming scans of a book I already read >_>

Why does Kitty have a claw? From Hank's words, it seems to be part of her now.

I think she accidentally merged through Wolverine after Fabian Cortez had boosted up her power.

Who betrayed what now?

It appears Storm killed Wolverine. I think?

Though it might not be the real Storm; at the end of the issue Gambit sees child!Storm.

In Claremont's original run Storm was de-aged into a child by Nanny, before being re-aged after she was captured by the Genoshan forces. I'm guessing Claremont's going to reveal that Storm was never really re-aged, and the adult Storm is an impostor or something.

This would not surprise me. I seem to recollect his being very enamored of the whole kid-Storm gimmick. As was I.

I'll get this in trade. Is there to be a trade?

Probably; it's going to be an ongoing series.

I presume that this is a much older issue? Looks very interesting
post more por favor!

[identity profile] jcbaggee.insanejournal.com 2009-08-01 12:48 pm (UTC)(link)
No, it's from the latest issue of "X-Men Forever", which is Chris Claremont picking up where he left off after "X-Men" #3 way back when.

[identity profile] jcbaggee.insanejournal.com 2009-08-01 01:20 pm (UTC)(link)
No, it's technically alternate universe. I don't think it'll ever amount to any kind of crossovers or anything like that, it's just "Hey guys, here's what would have happened if Chris Claremont hadn't ditched the book in the 90s!"

So far, it's about a 70/30 mix of trainwreck/awesome.

It got off to a slow start, but after it was revealed 'Storm' was the killer I've been enjoying it.

At this point I just want Magneto and/or Mystique to show up.

HUh. Interesting in a ODD way. Might buy it in trade

why do I hear sabertooth saying how storm kill his boy. I hear the King's Mah boi from the zelda cd-i games movies.

[identity profile] sherkahn.insanejournal.com 2009-08-01 03:09 pm (UTC)(link)
No offense, but it has got to be you. Ever since I was a young pup whenever I read Sabretooth, the only thing I could hear in my head is Michael Ironside.

[identity profile] thatnickguy.insanejournal.com 2009-08-01 03:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Huh. This is much less confusing and much less complicated than X-Men has been in ages. Most especially in the last few years (minus the Whedon stuff).

Those uniforms.. such fine memories.

Someone employ me, I gotta buy comics! D:{

Wow. I dig this. I think it's so many years of reading Spider-Girl.

Don't get this, since I've not read Claremont's stuff on X-men *shock horror*, but it looks a lot better than what's going on right now in 616.

[identity profile] sir_razorback.insanejournal.com 2009-08-02 01:49 am (UTC)(link)
a couple questions...

What happened to Creed's eyes?

How did Logan get killed?

What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen European swallow?

Your 2nd question

[identity profile] steverodgers5.insanejournal.com 2009-08-02 10:01 am (UTC)(link)
Seemingly, Imposter Storm killed him. By using her lightning to peel all of the flesh off of his bones. (And yeah I know that wouldn't do it anymore in the 616 continuity where ever since that ridiculous Nitro Civil War issue Wolverine has been rendered pretty much unkillable..) Obviously Claremont is not a big fan of Wolverine being a real Captain Scarlet/Harkness ;)

And in this I actually agree with him, though I still wish he hadn't offed Wolverine, as replacing him with sabretooth really doesn't work for me. (Always hated that notion of him reforming..)

As for your other question, heck God knows.. ;)

I've been so conflicted about this series. It has X-men in character (Yay!), its like I haven't seen the real them in years. Then it has old plotlines being rehashed (ho hum). Then there is the stupid (Kitty is part Wolverine now? Wha?), the great (Scott says heroes don't kill! Yay!), and the so-so (Scott says lets team up with Sabretooth! 'mKay...).

Great series for fanfic. I've gone from Scott/Jean, to DING DONG THE BITCH IS GONE, SCOTTY IS ALL MINE to Jean wants to make it with WolverKitty!
