CBR: The one thing that struck me about the reveal was, why do this now when your run on the X-books is about to end?

Bendis: That’s the other thing. There’s more to this story than just this issue. Other things are going to happen. In fact, the biggest questions are, “I don’t understand. How is young Bobby out, but older Bobby isn’t? What are you saying?” The answer is that you’ll find out in “Uncanny X-Men” #600. I’m not going to spoil that. It will probably be spoiled for me, though. 
This is a very complicated subject, and it requires more than a few pages to dive into. I thought it opened a great deal of possibility for the characters. I’m kind of leaving everybody in a different place than people thought we were going to leave them, including Angel and all the others. Let’s just say that I’m pretty confident that the person following me is going to do this justice.

I’m not done with this story yet, though. I still have many pages to go, and then the next person has a story that they can do with a character that I would like to read.


Alex Alonso: It was our subsequent conversations about what the next story would be that really sold me. This is a character with decades of history, and one who we’ve seen falter on the romantic stage — more than once. So the seeds were always there.


With Iceman's new series coming out and his sexuality will be a bit more focused on (hopefully in far better ways than the past), let's go back to when he was out by a nosy and invasive telepath.

Marvel have been releasing teaser images for the event which will, perhaps, mend some fences between Mutants and Inhumans after the revelations of "Death of X" and "I v X"... or might not

Two solo titles - one group book - one... not quite sure. Also now edited to add news about what the event is about )

This is a requested follow-up of sorts to the 'Caliban and Kitty' post from yesterday as the two had another interaction I was not yet aware of. That large hulking guy on the cover? That's Caliban. It was the 90s.

So here the title crossed a fairly big milestone, it's 100th issue. While USM was far from an 'underdog' it was something that many people wrote off as a gimmick from the getgo and the idea that it would get to a 50th issue, let alone twice that, was seen as laughable in 2001. Fortunately the title not only surpassed that but Bendis and Bagley would also later go on to break the record for longest uninterrupted run by two people on a Marvel title (previously held by Stan and Jack on Fantastic Four).

And what better way to celebrate such a momentous occasion but a take on one of the most maligned stories in Spider-Man history?

"So many heroes in the Marvel Universe are affected by this. Finding that perfect and honest balance is so hard and yet so satisfying. It’s one of those stories only Marvel could do and you want to do it well." - Brian Michael Bendis

"For me, the biggest challenge was limiting the number of X-Men on the team. There are so many great X-characters; it was honestly very difficult to narrow it down to a manageable size.

But it all came down to creating a team that felt classic and iconic but also fresh and new at the same time. There are elements of the roster that harken back to the classic [Chris] Claremont/[John] Byrne years, but also new developments with certain characters, like Old Man Logan and young Jean Grey that make these old relationships totally new again.

THOR #374 has a Thor moment that might not be awesome or whatever, but I still think it pretty cool. Mainly because how Thor reacts to some very bad news. Guest-starring Angel, Cyclops and Marvel Girl!

Quoting Poe at the worst times. )
