X-Men - Second Coming

Postby rentfn » May 12th, 2010 @ 9:06pm

Is anyone reading this. I just got back into comics, Thanks Geekbox, and I always loved the X-Men. So far the story is really good. Excited to read Chapter 7 tonight.

Spoiler: show
Couldn't believe they took out Nightcrawler. Impressed they killed off a major character. Excited to see what else they do with it.

Y'know what, if we're specifically discussing a story, it should be assumed spoilers are ON. And those are the only tags I'm putting in this post.

This, IMHO, is the X-Meniest X-Men story in a LONG time, because it's a huge-ass crossover that's covering all the major X-books. It resembles Age of Apocalypse to me; it's the other bookend to Messiah CompleX a few years back. They did that crossover (as the first real direction to the books since House of M, and thank God), launched Cable, X-Force and New Mutants out of that, which basically all led up to this.

My one major beef is that if you want to look back on this era someday, it's gonna take a goddamn LOT of trades to do so; but that's just superhero books in general, especially X-Men.

Anyway, Nightcrawler's death seems like jobbing to me. The story started with mourning a few mutants, Aeriel (a character I'd never heard of before) biting it the issue before, and Nightcrawler gets the funeral and Beast returning to guilt Cyclops. It reminds me of when Mark Millar killed of Black Goliath in Civil War; he chose that character because he knew any A-list character that died in the story would get brought back a year later (with the Superhuman Registration Act thrown out in Siege #4, that was some foresight).

Basically it was jobbing, and I'm kind of sad it happened in X-Force, but if he comes back next year I won't be surprised.

Oh, just FYI, I grabbed the miniseries they're doing alongside the regular story to tell the story of Cannonball leading a team into Limbo to rescue Magik. It's pretty bad. It's like Chris Yost threw a tantrum because he didn't get to write stories about Limbo and someone said "FINE!"

Personally one of my biggest peev's about mainstream superhero comics is the need to add more threads to a story, either because someone wants to add something or the publisher wants more cash. Makes it damn hard to reread later, which is why I think the custom binding trend has caught on so much.
