I Kinda want to read Second Coming and have a couple of questions

As it been decent so far?
Are Messiah War and Complex the only necessary prequels?
Were they good?
What else should I read in preparation?

1. It's been very good.
2. Technically I guess yes.
3. I haven't read them, but I here that they were okay, not fantastic though.
4. You don't really have to read anything to enjoy it, as I haven't read any of the buildup.

But it was just boring action. The only thing that could've made it shine was a good artist, which this book certainly didn't have.

So I heard that Daken(the son of Wolverine) will be remain on the Wolverine book which is now entitled Dark Wolverine, while Wolverine gets a new #1(and goes to hell).

I'm not interested in the Wolverine #1 but I'm mildly interested in jumping onto this Daken book. Reasons why I should? Reasons why I shouldn't?

Only need one reason why you shouldn't - Daken is probably the biggest douche in all of Marvel comics. Seriously, a comic about Wolverine going to hell written by Jason Aaron will be more worthy than a Daniel Way Dark Wolverine

Dark Wolverine is written by Daniel Way, one of the worst big names in comics.

Wolverine is written by Jason Aaron, one of the best writers in comics.

Really? You need a reason? Daken IMO opinion was solely created to be the anti-Wolverine, which makes no damn sense. A useless character and waste of comic book ink if you ask me. Hell it doesn't even look like Wolverine gives a shit.

Who isn't interested in Wolverine going to hell?

Besides, it's never what it's about, it's how it's about.

But, really, if you're looking for unique X-Men comics, you should read Warren Ellis' run.

understandable, I'm generally the same way with things people hate so much. In this case, it's a culmination of stories that have lead to him just being a huge douche nugget.

If you want a good example of how awful the character is, just read the short lived Dark Avengers.

X-Force #26: The Second Coming Chapter #5 This is a must read for fan of the X-Men. It's a fast paced story, as it's mostly action, but there's a substantive weight to this issue. Mike Choi artwork is outstanding. I can't say more because I would spoil the issue, other than you might feel like you got punched in the stomach.

5/5








SPOILER ALERT!!!


Highlight to read
This is the issue where Nightcrawler dies. He dies in heroic fashion, as all heroes tend to do. Eventhough I read the rumors and speculations that he was going to die, I was sadden to actually see it.

Shit...People assumed this would happen, but I didn't actually think they'd go through with it. That is a big blow to the X-Universe for sure. Is there any potential he's not dead but somehow trapped in his Shadow Land limbo thingy?

Darth_Primus
04-28-2010, 10:25 PM
There's always potential that he's not dead, but I think he is. I don't think they'll bring him back anytime soon, as they did with Cap America. As I stated on the previous page, his death was heroic and unselfish.

*Spoilers & Thoughts*



Fantastic issue. Choi's art was great. As a fan of Nightcrawler, it was a huge blow to see him die, but doing so in this fashion was well worth. He got the hero's death he deserved for being such a great character throughout the years and being so willing to sacrifice his well-being and himself throughout the crossover. I suppose you could say he got the "Barry Allen" treatment. The panel where he said his final words to Hope was an emotional panel and one of the finest I've seen in all of comics in a long time. I thought Kurt's faith in Hope referenced his faith as a Catholic throughout his years as an X-Man and his talk with Scott in Chapter One.

Great issue, I will remember it for a long time.

Not huge on Choi's art, because at times that painted look doesn't work well with action(ex. the hummer jeep being destroyed, I thought that shit was parked. lol). Choi also makes everyone look a bit younger than everyone else portrays them. Not a big problem but something I continually noticed.

Still a pretty entertaining issue. I did ruin it a bit by reading Mavs post beforehand but still well done.

NOOOOO!!!!!! Jk. We all knew it was coming but still damn I will miss the elf. He brought a good balance to the X-Men and will always be remembered as a great character and essential part of the universe. If he was to go this is the perfect way to do it. His sacrifice completely captures everything he believes in. I honestly can't imagine a better way to do it. Hats off to Kyle & Yost. Really liked the art too. Great Issue.

P.S. What a great moment when Wolverine found out. He better go rage on some guys. Looking forward to it.

Uncanny X-Men # 524: The slowest issue yet, all plot/character dev, no action. Not bad though, a nice little break from all the action we've had. Although nothing was really accomplished here, just Hope being introduced to some people and the funeral for Kurt.

3.5/5

#524 was probably the best chapter yet. Ponsor's colors were all wrong, of course, but it didn't totally ruin the Dodson's power. I loved the two little panels of Kitty. So cute!

Magneto, Kurt's funeral, Danger's fooling, Beast's harsh words, all written brilliantly.

I picked it up as it was Chapter 7 to the Second Coming storyline. The issue deals with Hope coping with her messiah title and how adverse some of the X-Men are with her presence as she caused blood of mutants to be spilled. Additionally, Bastion makes his next moves on wiping out all mutants by killing off their best means of escape. Another nice episode to the Second Coming storyline.

I read it, and thought it was a pretty good. I didn't like the Hope/Dani fight(it did not seem thought out at all). I thought the art is what held this issue back from being amazing. There were elements where things should have looked visually stunning but fell flat. The fight scene, the jets blowing up, the final speech, Cyclops' blast...all moments that should have been memorable from both a story and a visual standpoint, but will likely only be remembered for the former. Also, the cliffhanger was kinda dull.

I agree the artwork and certain aspects could be improved in this, but I like the way the overall storyline is progressing. The X-Men are now painted into a corner and a the war is about to land on their front door.

One of the best thing about this series is that is been a weekly release.

I felt the same way, because even if the script was better the art still distracted me so much that I couldn't enjoy any of it. Emma's nice to look at, but when her breasts take up half of a panel, and they're ugly, its just a lose-lose situation.

I love Mike Choi's artwork and it has been a perfect match to have him on X-Force.

This issue often provided food for thought and emotions, like the scene where the X-Men elders are meeting in a conference room and they learn of what's to come out of the white orb. The following panels where instrumental in capturing the mood, as they featured a pause of silence and sunken heads. This is the end.

It wasn't filler. I showed X-Force's ultimate plan on what they would do in the future and how they'd do it. It gave us more info on what Hope can and will do. Lastly, it gave us one of the funniest panels in comics this year with Fantomex's dialogue.

Oh yeah! The Fantomex's line was priceless.

But the other things you mentioned, like Hope are a little foreshadowing, but not anything really substantive. I just felt there was more of assessing the situation than moving the plot forward.

You still have Scott shutting down the controls, the timetable on how things can and need to be done with the Avengers outside the dome, and, again, everything that happened with X-Force in the future. Add in some memorable action scenes with Storm and Fantomex, and you end up with an issue that had both plot development and exciting action.

You (and I) can consider Hope's little moment in this issue is foreshadowing, but he thing with Charles is actually plot movement.

“SECOND COMING”, CHAPTER ELEVEN
The X-Men are losing the battle against the Nimrods and Cyclops knows it. Desperate times call for desperate measures and no measure is more desperate than enlisting a mutant with multiple personalities, each possessing its own power. That’s right, Legion is let out of prison to fight on the X-Men’s side.

Rereading this issue...its still boring, and I still don't care for Dodson(not bad, just not very good). But its one of those issues in crossovers that I like seeing. The Avengers have to show up in something like this eventually right? So instead of leaving them out and making fans like me bitch afterwards, Fraction and the X-team did the right thing and put them in it. So while it wasn't handled to my liking, I still have to applaud them for doing what we should see in all these "BIG" mini events.

Picked up Dark Wolverine #87. I can't tell you how frustrating this was...but I'll try.

First off, I didn't expect painted art...especially below average painted art. And as THE FIRST issue after a supposedly "big" crossover with the other Wolverine book, I figured this was best time to jump on. A new direction for the character, a new plot...instead I get boring narrative reflecting on what I just read in the recap page! Normally I would forgive this, but when I get to the end of the fucking story and I ask "THAT'S IT?!" then you didn't do a very good job of entertaining me. And to top things off, the book is about to crossover with ANOTHER book...NEXT FUCKING MONTH!!! Who the fuck does that?! And of course its with a book I have absolutely no interest in reading.

This is why people tend to stick with their favorite characters/creators than branch out into things.

I had heard so much bad things about Daken that I wanted to give him a fair chance. And seeing as I thought his origin sounded interesting(however typical it may be), I did give him that chance. I wish I hadn't. Maybe sometime in the distant future I'll try again.



New Mutants #14 was okay. Art was very sloppy, but the story flowed really well despite it covering a lot of aspects of the event. Another Zeb Wells issue that features cursing. lol I'll admit that as a new Xmen reader(not a New X-men reader :p) I didn't have much feeling seeing Magneto get off the bed at the end. Though I thought the dialogue there was delivered well. If Magneto had sat out this event, every X-fan would be pissed and used those very same words that Erik spoke to bash Zeb Wells. Still the most intriguing thing about this story is Hope and Cyclops. I love these speeches, the leadership and when no one (but Emma) is around I love Cyclops' calm but worried nature. And the wonder of what Hope can or will do is still very interesting to me. They've done a great job throwing so many elements into the story that she becoming the Mutant Messiah doesn't get dragged out, but instead becomes a ticking bomb that will either save the day or wave a white flag that reads BANG.

Writer Allan Heinberg (Young Avengers) and artist Olivier Coipel (Siege) are teaming up to present a bonus story in July’s Uncanny X-Men #526 that was not originally solicited in Marvel’s July 2010 solicitations.

According to Diamond, in this bonus story, Magneto learns something that sends him down a path most would rather leave unexplored, which could potentially affect his already-shaky relationship with the X-Men.

The issues main story deals with the aftermath of “Second Coming” and comes from regular series writer Matt Fraction and Uncanny veteran artist Whilce Portacio returning to the title to provide the interior artwork.

The book will remain 40 pages, with a cover price of $3.99, as originally solicited (below).

I liked this issue for the most part. Lots of action, Hope had another cool moment, I like that both Laura and Logan were just flesh at one point. This issue had a big drop off in Land's art from the previous issue. It wasn't bad, but the storytelling was off and most of it felt sloppy. It's a shame since this is his final issue of the crossover. I thought Scott should have told Hope to shut the fuck up and realize that she's wrong. And with only two issues left in the crossover I NOW have to wonder when the fuck Hope is going to do something special. I've really enjoyed this story but saving Storm and bitching about Cable is all I will remember about her if these last two issues don't do well.

Mark Millar begins work on 'Old Man Logan' sequel (http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2010/06/mark-millar-begins-work-on-old-man-logan-sequel/)

Mark Millar revealed he's plotted a sequel to "Old Man Logan," the bestselling 2008-2009 arc billed as "the greatest Wolverine story ever told."

"It's been in the back of my mind since before I started writing the first issue of the original," he wrote last night on his message board, "but this was the first time I'd actually put pen to paper. Marvel had offered me a classic book a few weeks back and when I was sitting on the plane planning to put some notes together I just couldn't stop. Unfortunately, it wasn't the book I was offered, but the 'Old Man Logan' sequel. It opens with this insane Spidey flashback which pretty much sets the tone. My God, it's going to be fun to write."

Millar cautioned that he still has to pitch the idea to Marvel this week, "so this isn't an announcement by any means." However, he said, "the first one did so many printings of each issue. I think we averaged around 120,000 copies per book in the end and trade sales were amazing so it should be fine."

Beginning in August 2008's Wolverine #66, "Old Man Logan" reunited Millar and his Civil War collaborator Steve McNiven for an eight-part story set in a dystopian future where the United States has been divided among supervillains, who have wiped most of the heroes out of existence. To pay his rent and care for his family, Logan accepts a job from a blind Hawkeye to accompany him across the country to deliver a secret package. The storyline experienced a few delays before finally concluding in September 2009's Wolverine: Old Man Logan Giant-Size #1.

Good news to me.

The second to last chapter of Second Coming arrived today. Spoilers below:



- Cable gave in to the technorganic virus in order to get his team back from the future. Heroic move? Yes. Heroic death? Unfortunately. He blew apart when the Time Sphere closed. Is this the end of Cable? I sure Hope not.

- With the sentinels defeated, the Time Sphere destroyed and the Mutants still at reasonable numbers, Creed and Lang call for retreat. What does Bastion do? Turns them into sentinels of his own. Then Bastion blasts through the San Fransisco bridge, cutting it in two. It's go time, enemies last stand.

- The big shocker of the whole event: Hope taps into her "inner power" or whatever and...becomes Ion!? No, she is Phoenix, of course.

The art in this comic was awesome, and the story was good. So far this "event" mops the floor with BN like so much cheap paper towel.

What a great fucking issue. It makes me wish I knew more about Cable, but that's not necessary. I loved this. Mike Choi did a very good job for most of the issue. The fight scene was a little weak but it was still exciting.

Second Coming, like the Messiah Complex has been outstanding. It's just been a thrilling ride from the start. However, it did take it's time to circle back to Hope. It's stories like this that has made me a long time fan of the X-Men.

I think Mike Choi has done an excellent job. I love that he's been on X-Force since beginning.

i'm happy about the new "Uncanny" X-Force lineup but why no X-23?

Just like with Siege, Second Coming falters on its final issue. It covers a lot of ground, but it just wasn't interesting. It probably feels like a much greater conclusion for people who've been reading X-comics since Kyle/Yost came along..but to me, this was a bit too much of a happy ending. Not that it was a party thrown or anything, but I guess my disappointment stems from Hope's ability to dispose of Bastion so easily last issue. Regardless, Second Coming was a very good story that wrapped itself up nicely, for the most part.

My favorite moment of this issue:

*Phoenix talks to Emma and scares the crap out of her.*

That's a nice plot thread that Fraction can pick up on.

After reading Uncanny X-Men: The Heroic Age, I really want Jamie McKelvie to start drawing Uncanny.

Oh, I'd like to point out that the changes from artist to artist were terrible. I should have looked at the solicits because I was expected David Finch to cap it off. Oh well. I just wish it was one solid artist on this issue. Or maybe too. But there was no need for such drastic interpretations. Especially when the artist/colorist messes up Wolverines costume on the first page, taking me right out the story.

Amazing. This has been hands down the best event in recent history in all of comics IMHO. Gripping, emotional, satisfying. He did it, Scott Summers preveiled against all odds and kept the mutant race alive. Bravo.

The new X-Force line up = BAD ASS. Im in.

Wolverine felt the X-Men treated her the same way her creators treated, used as a weapon. Wolvie wanted Laura to be free from the life of an assassin/soldier.

Well, most comic books end this way nowadays, so I've grown a thick skin to these type of endings. However, the ending didn't deminish the overall story. It was a great ride and the best storyline of the summer, if not the year.

Haven't read The Heroic Age yet, but I agree with your favorite moment. That was pretty epic. I mean, Emma screaming out to Scott was a chilling moment. The following scene after that was cool too, with Scott seeing new mutants all over the globe. I'm curious on how this is connected to Hope. It was nice to see that.

Yeah, some the of the artwork was pretty shitty in comparison to Mike Choi and David Finch. I wish Finch would have finished up the series with the final chapter to bookend the story.

Yeah, Cyclops showed true leadership and I like the fact that Namor backed him up. I love the splash page of the new X-Force, a definite jaw dropper. Eventhough I have the individual books, I'll probably get the Hard Cover.
