Firestorm vs. Anit Monitor? Seems like a bit of a mismatch lol.

I saw what you meant but I doubt I could even use it. I hope Apoc draws Firestorm because of his molecular control of his body.

I kinda like that Spidey has to rely on his intelligence now instead of "spidey sense."

Recently, Marvel held a series of press calls to discuss the future of the X-Men franchise. One of these calls involved Rick Remender's Uncanny X-Force. A teaser image showed four members of the team battling the X-Men of the Age of Apocalypse reality. But Archangel was conspicuously absent from that teaser, a point Remender noted was not just coincidence.

Shortly thereafter, Marvel released another teaser featuring a very deranged and bloodthirsty Archangel. Is the hero finally losing control over his dark side? And how does this lead X-Force to venture to another dimension?Marvel provided some concrete answers at C2E2 today when they announced The Dark Angel Saga during the "Welcome to the X-Men" panel. That's the actual name of the storyline that brings back the Age of Apocalypse universe since it was last glimpsed in the 2005 mini-series and the pages of Exiles.

The Dark Angel Saga sees the remaining four members of the team struggling to free Warren Worthington from the influence of Archangel, the dark personality that has grown more prevalent since returning in Craig Kyle and Chris Yost's X-Force series. When Remender previously spoke about this storyline, he noted that X-Force would be searching for something in the Age of Apocalypse universe. Whether that something is a person or object, it looks to be central in curing Archangel.

Remender had also mentioned that Dark Beast would be playing a role in the series soon. That character was one of several refugees from the AoA universe to wind up in the normal Marvel Universe. Dark Beast will now join X-Force in returning to his home dimension, acting as a sort of guide through that twisted landscape.

The Dark Angel Saga will begin with a prologue chapter in May's Uncanny X-Force #10 and officially kick off in June's issue #11. Based on Remender's earlier comments, we know Mark Brooks will illustrate issue #11-13 while Jerome Opena is returning to the series for issues #14-17, the finale of this arc

that has been an interesting development, especially considering all applications he used it for that he didn't even realize, like web-swinging

Nightcrawler's Return??

Quote:
During the "MARVEL: Welcome to the X-Men" panel at this year's Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, the subject of Nightcrawler's death was a popular topic of discussion. Attending fans not only voiced their grief over the "bamfing" German mutant's demise, but most wondered if/when the character would be brought back to life.

As one attendee put it, "I heard somebody once say that X-Men come back to life more than Jesus."

So what was the response from the Marvel honchos on the panel?

"We've talked about it within the X-Men office," noted X-Editor Daniel Ketchum. "It's always a card on the table. I guess I'll leave it up to you to figure out, 'Well, are we going to play to type or go against the grain?'"

Uh, yeah... we'll leave it up to you to decipher that response.

I think it will make his character more interesting as he makes innovations to deal with problems. Like how he came out looking like a badass after that hostage dude tried to blow him up. He might be able to come up with new suits like Stark always does.

I personally like the new jeans type look Wonder Woman has,

same, fanboys had a fit when they initially saw the change. but that would've been the easiest costume to adapt to TV

**** the fanboys. It looks better but then again I'm a more recent comic book fan. The only costumes I see as pretty much untouchable are Supes and Batman.

The lizard will be the villain in the upcoming Spidey flick
Quote:
Gotta wonder if Sony is regretting hiring the star of Soul Man right about now. Even though it's been rumored for awhile, actor C. Thomas Howell has now confirmed that the villain played by Rhys Ifans in The Amazing Spider-Man is indeed the Lizard.
