    Speaking as a fairly dyed-in-the-wool Cyclops fan, if you're given a choice between preventing the crazy big guy from snapping the necks of two of your friends right there and possibly causing...

    I'm pretty sure the betrayal was Blaquesmith fetching Hope and Scott. As Cable was quite obviously killing himself fighting the Avengers, Blaquesmith needed to do something to prevent him from doing...

    Where are you getting that? At the end of X-Sanction, Hope asked Blaquesmith why he "betrayed" Cable (by bringing her and Scott to the ship to stop him from finishing off the Avengers).

    I think the main problem is actually that there's been entirely too much telling and not enough showing.

    Bendis has gone on record a couple of times about how much he enjoys the fact that people have divergent opinions about whether Scott's a hero or a villain. I half-think he's overexuberantly muddying...

    I wonder if we'll ever get an admission that this wasn't the original ending to the arc. I don't think I'd put money on it.



    You're probably right.

    I don't disagree that we need better writing. But Malloy was about to look into Strange's Eye just before everything blew up. If he'd seen something there that had convinced him that yes, his...

    They fought like hell to give Jean-Phoenix a chance, however it ended. Charles kept trying to help his son despite the dangers involved. Franklin Richards has been protected fiercely by both his...

    I really wonder if Bendis is going to realize at any point how horrifying the solution he opted for actually is. I mean, he clearly set it up that Xavier made the wrong choice originally with Malloy...

    Xavier's second solution to the Malloy problem wasn't unlike his first. Lock his powers away? Don't have to deal with him. Stop him from ever being born? Don't have to deal with him.

    Hey, I'm not holding a grudge. To be fair, most of the posters on here are probably male. The demographics of the fandom may be changing but not that fast. Still, maybe better to keep those...

    Gosh, it's been ages since someone assumed I was male around here. I'd almost forgotten what it felt like.

    You seem very invested in the idea that people need to be fair to this issue, for whatever reason. I'd point out that your opinion that some of these plot holes don't exist is because you feel...

    I think the thing that annoys me the most is how utterly and completely Bendis wasted Gillen's fantastic setup from AvX: Consequences. Fortunately I have a drink in my hand and can raise a glass in a...

    I don't think you're giving other writers enough credit. Decent time travel fiction is at least internally consistent; this is not.

    ... I need to go live in the happy fantasyland where Rucka agrees to take a crack at Uncanny X-Men because I would buy that in a heartbeat and evangelize to all my friends.
