Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2

I've come to notice that almost everybody in the Marvel Universe is either born and lives in NY or lives in NY. If thats the case, where were characters like Daredevil,Spiderman and the Fantastic Four in the Avengers movie to help out!? Obviously joking but I just realized this now lol

Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2

Re-reading these claremont/byrne xmen issues has reminded me how shitty the xmen have become since 1991. All of these characters went through significent story arcs when Claremont wrote them. Wolverine went from a psychopathic loner to the leader of the team with a Samurai code of honor. Storm went from an african princess to a girl with a mohawk that has knife fights with evil mutants. Kitty Pryde basically grew up right before our eyes. Magneto went from the teams arch-villain to the headmaster of the school. I could go on and on. Things actually happened. None of those characters were even remotely the same as they were when it started.

Now none of the main x-men with the possible exception of cyclops (and emma) have had any character advancement at all since 1991. Like really, what the fuck has Storm done since 1991? Go ahead, make a list. She been background decoration for over 20 years. She spews out the occasional Claremont one-liner. Absolutely nothing has been added to Wolverine's character since 1991. Plenty has been added to his past, but nothing to his current character. It's sad really.

Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2

Wolverine doesnt have a character because there are 20 different versions of him with no cooperation between writers. everyone just writes him as they think of him

Cyclops evolved immensely though

Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2

It still blows my mind that Claremont accounted for all of wolverines time away. Like when wolverine had a mini series hed write a scene where wolverine tells storm he has some business to take care of and then he d be out of the book for 6 issues. I wish writers still had that kind control over their characters

Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2

why would they? nowadays writers (bendis) use the same characters in different books without even pretending one guy is gone or busy

its all the damn team books. team-ups used to fix that problem, but nowadays every single guy is on every single team

The only tie-ins worth reading are OMAC Project and Villains United (not even sure you'd read it, have you read Secret Six?).

OMAC is still available for $10ish: http://www.amazon.com/OMAC-Project-C...s=omac+project
