So basically it is a way for them to update the comics so that the characters can have more modern and realistic(for a comic) origin stories without people getting pissed over continuity issues?

Wow sounds like something they should do every 10-15 years or so with some characters.

Is the Ultimates X-men stuff good? Unfortunately I haven't gotten around to trying out anything but X-men and the House of M and decimation crossover stuff. I do plan on giving The Ultimates 1 and 2 a shot though.

Yeah...so far i've heard nothing but the contrary when it comes to that issue. It leaked online, but i haven't read it. I dropped the arc early on as i couldn't get into it at all. I enjoyed Court of Owls a lot, but the Joker arc was a let down for me.

gonna take a wild guess...the joker is not really the joker? (why else would he cut off his face, come back and tie the joker face back on? makes no sense to me...)

Can't wait for Uncanny X-Men tomorrow. I've been hyped for this since it was announced. I just hope its not a let down since i'm expecting a lot.

I got the first three issues of Batman: Year One for $15. I think that's a steal, not sure. Would be awesome to land such a deal on The Dark Knight Returns.

Those are all great series, but as far as where someone should start? Depends on how familiar they are with this stuff. Have they seen the movies or cartoons and have a general idea of the character interactions such as the relationship between jean and scott and Logan? I'd go with Astonishing and move on to things like House of M so on and so forth up to the present.

If not.....I dunno. I'd probably still start with Astonishing as it establishes the characters in an amazing way. I've gone back and read some of the older stuff like Dark Phoenix saga and honestly I don't think a modern fan who isn't accustomed to comics would be able to relate to the writing style of it. God Loves man Kills? Beautiful work, a little hard to grasp without understanding the characters, but it's like a classic lit novel that stands the test of time. You don't need to start with it, but it is something to read when you want to read something and be moved.

I'm pretty new to comics, but X-men is my focus. Love the characters, the lore, the dynamics between characters, and how the X-Men are considered completely different from other superhumans.

Ultimate X-men is good until the Ultimatum arc (Not sure if it's called that is the one with the *spoilers* big tsunami kills everyone in NYC *spoilers*)

piratebay had a torrent with the whole utimate universe awhile back. astonishing xmen is a good place to start with joss whedons books. They largely keep to themselves in it. I haven't read much ultimate x-men but i have been told it's good, it apparently changes some things a lot though. Another option for x-men is just buying the trades of arcs you like, dark phoenix saga, man loves god kills, days of future past are all available on their own and work ok as self contained stories.
