"Doom, Thor, Black Bolt, Black Panther, Ka-Zar, Namor...There are many monarchs in the Marvel Universe, but only one so powerful and so reviled that he had to be written out of history. He is THE UNSPOKEN."

Who ruled the Inhumans before Black Bolt? And what happened to him?

Long live the king. )

"What’s funny is — if you ascribe to the view that the spirit of the Mid-80’s was all about reinvention and re-contextualization — I genuinely believe we’re in a similar period of adjustment right now. Things have become so intractable during the intervening period — genre conventions have solidified to the point of brittleness: endless diminishing returns, the proliferation of decompression, the inflexibility of conventional distribution models, all of that — that I really feel there’s a critical mass building-up to a beautiful realignment on the horizon. Genres, formats, moods, expectations — it’s all up for grabs. Given that Marvel have given me this opportunity — to do something deliberately different — I’m in love with the idea that the new Legacy title will play its own little role in that slow seismic shift." -- Si Spurrier

'There was a point at which readers just suddenly seemed to get it -- the point they realized the book is intentionally the way it is, I guess -- and since then we've been getting incredible reviews with the same little phrases again and again: "Marvel-does-Vertigo," "spandex-with-soul," etc. Which is flattering and lovely and very welcome, but frankly all I'm doing is writing the sort of book I'd want to read.' -- Si Spurrier

"Moreso than perhaps any other X-characters, Scott’s and David’s lives are utterly dominated by Prof. X’s presence: informing, infecting, influencing and arguably corrupting them from who they once were into who they now are." -- Si Spurrier

"I suspect that if you ask even the staunchest CYCLOPS WAS RIGHT fanboy how they’d honestly react if a demigod human-supernova with a conspicuous lack of perspective showed-up in his living room declaring that The World Will Be Reshaped whether you like it or not, they’re pretty quickly gonna dial 9-1-1. Maybe Cyclops was right, but he almost certainly went about it wrong.

"Which, hilariously, is exactly the same way our mutual friend David Haller is currently feeling about his father. SURPRISE RELEVANCE!"

Scarlet Spider #14

I love this cover. It makes my face itch.


There are references to the Grim Hunt storyline, most specifically Amazing Spider-Man #635 and #636, but reading them beforehand is optional.

TRIGGER WARNING: References to suicide and suicidal ideation; lots and lots of spiders.

Scarlet Spider #13 cover

If you're reading this week's Spider-Books, a dormant plot point from 2012-2013's Scarlet Spider may have become relevant again. Since I'll take any excuse to post stuff from "The Kaine & Aracely Show," here is Post 1 of 3 with relevant scans!


TRIGGER WARNING: Non-graphic but disturbingly implied gore! 7 pages from a 21-page issue.

This week, the Age of X ended with the defeat of its motive force.

It also began in AoX: Universe #2, with the end of another legion's story: that of the mean and nasty fucked up Avengers and their run at Fortress X.

It's not hard to figure out if they took it down, or if they even lived, but the story is still a good one as alternate reality hero-to-antagonist recastings go.

It even manages to do a nice job of justifying its Cap's participation. )

(wow, back to back. That's lucky!)

And it's one where mutants are on the run, rather than the rise.

Those who live outside the force walls face more than humanity's Exonim (clever) legions and anti-mutant legislation; they face the government's elite mutant hunters.

Four men and two women, each with their own motivations to see mutant freedoms leashed.

Six very familiar faces broken by their world, they are what they are: the Avengers.

(After the Phoenix's blowup, no point in guessing what they're Avenging.. though I can see why someone suggested Freedom Force, instead. With a Ms. Marvel, even.)

And their story's to be told in the two-shot Age of X: Universe, whose first hasn't had the warmest critical reception. But that's to be expected, when it's a two-issue tie-in to an alternate reality event.

I liked this week's first enough to be awaiting April's second, though: Simon Spurrier's definitely had fun playing with established characters in a universe really foreign to them.

Jim McCann's AoX: Spidey backup, on the other hand, was a bit rote.. but Pete was exactly what you'd expect. )

CosmicBookNews has the preview.

It's all been building to this. King Kong vs. Godzilla. Hogan vs. Flair. Pepsi vs. Coke.

3 behind the cut.

It all comes down to this. )
