"Nick [Fury, Jr]'s been around for a few years now, but I've never really felt like I've gotten a real sense of who he is, so I wanted to try and tell a story where we really find that out. From his introduction, he's landed from one situation into the next and I felt he needed to make a decision and strike out on his own a little." - Declan Shalvey

"I don’t think you’re alone in feeling Cyclops got a raw deal - or, at least, wasn’t given the requisite sympathy and understanding he deserved. Part of what makes the X-books of the modern era so great is that they transcend the hoary old GOOD VS. EVIL bollocks that still clings to a few not-to-be-named comics like a truculent STD [...] So, yeah, in the sometime-simplistic lexicon of spandex, Cyclops really did wind up being the bad guy, just like oldschool Magneto before him. Same basic goals as the X-Men - “make the world a better place for mutants” - but radically different approach. Was he right? Oof, it’s a tough one. I guess my attitude is that he was right, and in a perfect world he would’ve been left alone to create a Utopian Tomorrow. But, hey, who’s gonna trust a guy with more power than Con Edison and blood on his hands?" -- Si Spurrier

'I sometimes worry at the gradual loss of density in mainstream comics. We're getting to the point now that a lot of spandex books take just five minutes to read cover to cover, and that's considered Right And Proper, and god forbid any material that warrants a reread. Oh, there's nothing wrong with that per se -- a lot of those comics are bloody great -- but I'm ironclad certain there's room in the stable for something stranger, denser and darker. Hence, "X-Men Legacy."' -- Si Spurrier

"My greatest sense of pride with this gig is that it gently evolved into an exploration of self-determinism and mental health. Sure it’s got all the classic Marvel-y stuff, the big action and big characters, but down under it all it’s a very dark tale about a scared kid struggling to come to terms with the fact that his own mind is his greatest enemy, and choosing how to frame a victory around it." -- Si Spurrier

"Paradoxically, the past is central and antithetical to the story. So much of the thematic drive comes from bygone events, characters and relationships -- and yet all those things are being used to inform that relentless fuck you to conventionality thing we've been playing with, and a deliberate march towards The New -- both in story terms and stylistically." -- Si Spurrier

Continuing the "Did the Earth move for you." motif, the Science team of the X-Men resolve this conflict.... with a few different versions of Duex Ex Machina saving the day.

But again, you're not here for that. you are here for THIS!

Make mine MARVEL!

Edit: (Honestly, I swear this is written just for S_D in mind.)

I get lonely without it. )

Newsarama has the preview for #4 of this limited series/adventure (among others), and it looks like the ride is about to end soon.

Somehow the starfish has still managed to survive the awesomeness.

My love for Dr. Nemesis and his subconscious spouting starfish knows no bounds!

2 pages of love behind the cut (as we will reach max pages posted per new issue)

(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. )

Greetings True Believers!

I bring you scans from a fraking awesome X-Men one-shot. Second Comings Revelations: Blind Science.

It knocked my socks off. Two reasons. An amusing storyline and the fact that Doctor Nemesis is the shit. Seriously, he belongs in NEXTWAVE.

In this one-shot Dr. Kavita Rao, Madison Jeffries(Box) and Doctor Nemesis save the day....with SCIENCE!

Plus, nazi-dolphins.

I couldn't resist, and frankly, I didn't really try!

First up are a couple of additions to my Dick Grayson / Kurt Wagner series.

Cute hero acrobats! You need more of a reason? )

And this last one is a challenge for any artist, Warlock and Cypher of the New Mutants...

It's simple (Well, as simple as Warlock can ever be), it's fun and it's fantastic! )

And for legality

Tonight,the part of Doug Ramsey will be played by... any suggestions? )
