X-Men General Thread



This thread is a place to discuss everything X-Men! Comics, Movies, Cartoon... everything!

Some of you may have heard already that X-Men comics are going through a big change. The books are getting different writers, artists, and missions, and teams are being split up with different members going over to other books.

The X-Treme X-Men book got cancelled, and some of the X-treme team are getting their own titles, or are being put into different ones.

Here are the previews for the books coming out in May --- and it seems the rumours were true: Joss Whedon IS writing an X-Book! ^_^

For the young mutants at the Xavier Institute, life will never be the same! The children at the X-Mansion thought they had it tough when Professor X was running things - but now that X-Men Cyclops and Emma Frost have taken over the reins of the school, they're wishing for the simpler times of yesterday! Codenames, school-issued uniforms and mandatory training sessions in the Danger Room are just a few of the changes being implemented around the Institute - but when the entire student body is forced to divide itself up into small squads and "choose sides," Xavier's will never be the same again!

Whoop!

Let's hear it for the X in da house.

As a former collector and ever-lovin person of X, I don't know honestly how to feel about Joss taking over. I thought Claremont would have been a good thing....but he's worried me.

So how's everyone doing?

Hey Jerry! Nice to see u stopin by! And really nice to see u're an old x-fan!

I'm having a hard time organizing everything for the closure of the X-Board! I'm trying to keep alive some x-talking, splitin the threads into different boards!

We're all excited with the new creative teams and mutant teams! Joss will work with the Astonishing, the book they're already calling as a pop x-men book! I used to love Joss... till he killed Tara (on Buffy)!

Anyway... where did u stop with the X-Men, Jerry?

bb,
Samwise

Hi.
I've been basically a sporadic fan of the whole X-Men franchise.. getting my hands on other people's comics and such. Recently i've gotten a hold of the entire X-Treme X-Men series so my fandom status has gone up to a whole new level. And.... i really like Sage!

I may have chose a bad time for my new level of fanaticism though.. its seems like a chaotic time. I'm sorry to see the X board shut down.

I had no idea Joss was writing for X-Men. I'm a fan but i hope his work reflects the early seasons of Buffy.

Hi, Fragrance!
Sage rules!
She's teamed up with Storm, Bishop and cia. In fact, Sage and Bishop delevoped kind of a friendship! She is in Uncanny #444, the latest one!

I can't wait to see Joss' work with Emma!

Hi all,

Good to see we're still alive even though we've moved. Read the newest Uncanny the other day, it was pretty good. I have high hopes for ReLoaded.

I was hardcore for a while.

back when it was only Uncanny i had 123 - 390 continuous.

I've been sporadic since then.

Does rogue have her powers back?

I don't like emma. I've never liked emma. I've been a big fan of making an poster child for catatonic brain dead people.

Then again, they usually end up changing all the people I like for the worse. I was a major ArchAngel fan, when he had the metal wings.

Of course, I'm a decent fan of the movies.

I'm looking forward to Astonishing, X-Men, and pretty much every other book. I'll pick up every book in the reloaded line and decide which ones are the best.

Oh, and no Rogue still has no powers.

I'm grudgingly here... Darn board closure. Although I posted something funny on the Xboard. I thought it was funny. I might look nutty to everyone else.

Okay I didn't get in 444 the weird glowy thing on Rachel's head. I knew it was the Phoenix but does it glow when she's powerful or... and is it on her skin or what? I never read the Rachel thing. I never understood it not having seen it from the beginning.

No idea, but I wondered that to. Anyone know?

I really don't know! I believe it's just an aesthetics thing!
