They are the public face of mutants in an Osborn world. And what a face they are! But what does Nate Grey, A.K.A. X-MAN, have to do with it?

Does anyone else not like Mystique's new costume? The blue is too close to her skin coloring; it'd be better if it was all white.

One day a new EIC will arrive at Marvel and Greg Land will be fired.

I keep telling myself that. But I just can't believe it anymore.

I'm actually loving it. I nearly bought a comic called "Dark Wolverine" until I saw it had a Land cover, instantly curing me of any desire I had to pay for it.

It's like those frogs with the bright neon colors that say "DO NOT EAT ME, I WILL FUCK YOUR INSIDES UP GOOD."

Except the opposite, cuz the frogs are really pretty and fun to look at.

When someone says "ahaha, yeah, I nearly ate that until I saw the pound of rat poison in their throat", you do not shove the rat poison down their throat.

Why is it they all seem to be standing on different angled surfaces? And striped-chest-guy seems to be tilting back away from the audience?

And I genuinely can't tell who that woman is, because she looks like EVERY OTHER FEMALE CHARACTER LAND HAS EVER DRAWN.
