UNCANNY X-MEN #13: Battle of the Atom Part 8 (theory)

There's a scene during BATTLE OF THE ATOM that I *think* was Bendis creating a hook for later. Maybe. Also, we literally do not see anything to support my theory.

The future Brotherhood, led by Xorn!Jean, wants to send the O5 X-Men back to their correct time. They can't. This is a major plot point in Battle of the Atom, as no one cares what the Original Five want, even though everyone is saying that HAVE to go back.

Daredevil #1.50

These are two pages from Bendis and Maleev's back up story from Daredevil #1.50. Their run on Daredevil is easily one of my favorite comic stories of all time and seeing them together again was the main reason why I picked up this issue. I'll admit to being a little disappointed given how brief it is and how different it is from the style of their earlier run but it was interesting to see them try something new in presentation. Without further ado...

Daredevil #36 is the first comic in decades that has made me tear up

I've only been reading Daredevil for about a year and a half. I think I came on board with #18. Since then, I've been buying back issues off Comixology and just discovered Marvel Unlimited. I'm gradually becoming informed of what's gone on in the last 50 years and recently read the King of Hell's Kitchen arc (DD Volume 2 #56-60 by Bendis and Maleev). In that arc, Foggy had a very valid complaint in issue 58:


From Daredevil 58

That time, Matt went and did something truly audacious that had huge fallout, for Matt, but also made a lot of problems for Foggy.

Matt does something audacious again, but this time, he's learned a few things... )

I think the last time I cried over a comic was back when Cypher died and Rahne was going through Danger Room scenarios to see how many ways she could have saved him. Record has now been broken some 25 years later...
