Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

.... I miss Kurt Darkholme. I miss ... texture. Eh, I'm not going to argue that point. I kind of feel like there was room enough for both, considering how different their motivations, MO, etc were, but then again I think Darkhölme would've made a better sympathetic villain in the long run. /shrug I...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

Yes, those continuity-centric little prize eggs getting thrown in there are nice for us old-timers, though based on the mentor role and the inclusion of the younger generation, I think CC is setting up a nice formula to appeal to old and new readers. I mean, as an old reader it doesn't annoy me to s...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

I will say the scantily clad Rachel is a strange thing to see after her characterization in Wood's "X-Men." I didn't think her go-to DR style of dress was similar to Red Sonja's. Or is that just Claremont writing for the 80's again? That was a tongue in cheek reference to a classic Kurt/Rachel scen...

Re: What do you want to see in Nicrawler's current book

As supporting? Anyone who doesn't constitute kicking a dead horse, ignoring major continuity or lumping him further into irrelevancy like focusing the first arc on Amanda and Margali did. I think Claremont is really going to have to work to recover the lost momentum from that arc. From the people I'...

Re: Aaron leaves Amazing X - Kyle & Yost to take over

I'm fine with Logan and Kurt rekindling their relationship but I have not even seen much of that even happening especially given the fact Wolverine was supposed to be a supporting character in Nightcrawler's solo Yeah, that friendship has been utterly ignored, for whatever reason, and they're runni...

Re: Aaron leaves Amazing X - Kyle & Yost to take over

I was really enjoying this one under Aaron but Kyost just isn't cutting it for me so far. It went from a book that felt old school and like a group of people who cared about one another to yet another snarky quippy formula, like we don't have enough of those to choose from. There's a guest writer co...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

Well, issue #5 was a definite improvement for anyone interested. I reviewed it here: http://www.comicvine.com/nightcrawler-5/4000-462254/user-reviews/2200-44030 It looks like he's finally getting something of a path going forward and other than brief mention, the weird/contrived Amanda thing wasn't ...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

Issue no.002 is a much needed improvement, but it's still far from what I imagined the series to be like. Is anyone else getting annoyed that Kurt keeps "saving" Amanda, taking credit for it, and completely and full of hubris, reminding her at every opportunity? He seems to always be saving her... ...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

From reading the interviews, I think Aaron, when he requested the return of Nightcrawler, was told he'd have to have a solid story behind it before it was allowed. I, for one, am glad this isn't just another random comic resurrection and that there is some meat to it. As far as the impact on Kurt, I...

Re: who would be your fave Nightcrawler and any X-women coup

If Claremont hasn't made his point by then, or made this better by ridding this book of Amanda, then I agree. Give it to someone who might do better. Also, is it ungrateful to expect Amanda/Jimaine/WHATEVER not to be a focal point in this book? I mean, it's not that she has just popped up, was ment...

Re: Aaron leaves Amazing X - Kyle & Yost to take over

I liked what Aaron did for Amazing, though I agree that side of Schism needs a strong book/team with a clear premise. Amazing was fun under Aaron, and I liked his characterizations. However, I can't say I'm jumping for joy at the Kyost news. We'll see what happens as it goes, but I don't particularl...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

After re-reading it(several times now), I think it's deliberate on Claremont's part. I think he's trying to show us that Kurt wants to be the man he WAS, not have to deal with the man he's become, which is probably a frightening thought for him. Nauck helped CC set it up with all the nostalgia scene...

I'm a little partial to the idea of Rachel these days. I really liked their scene together in Nightcrawler #1. It gave an old Excalibur vibe, imo.

Re: Kurt & Amanda rekindling an old flame

I'm definitely with Angelique on this one. The only way I see of making either of them more sympathetic when written opposite one another is to keep it platonic and actually address all that's happened. I even have a hard time liking him when he's written alongside her. It's like he loses his comple...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

What I'm hoping with the Amanda thing is that Claremont is using it to show Kurt can't go back to who he was before, he has to learn who he is now. It's the only explanation I can come up with for the fact that he completely ignored continuity with the relationship. That's just not like Claremont to...

Re: Nightcrawler Returns -- Inhumanity by Matt Fraction

Cautiously optimistic is a good way to put it. From the interviews I've been reading with Aaron, he seems to really love the character, and he's already addressed the lack of fun element to him in recent history. Fingers crossed!!!!
