Re: AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser I

Nope. I don't see how anyone who could blithely say stuff about places to be and people to kill could possible be the same person as Kurt Wagner. Well, it depends on your definition of "same person". Their genetic potential is the same. The evolving story of Darkhölme vs. Wagner is one of nature vs...

What are you reading and why? (Comic recommendations!)

Irredeemable/Incorruptible are sister series. Irredeemable is basically what if a Superman type character (The Plutonian) reaches his breaking point and just SNAPS. He goes on a rampage, obliterating entire cities, and killing all his old teammates, who are at a loss as to how to stop him. Incorrup...

Characters that didn't interest you before, but are now growing on you.

Batman. I've been all over him for about a month now, when I never had much interest before. Every book he's been in, I liked. (Even JLI.)

The Great 2011 DC Relaunch - 52 New #1's in September

I was less-enthused about the selection this week, not sure if that is just my mood or what. Good 1. Batman and Robin 2. Frankenstein 3. Red Lanterns Okay 4. Green Lantern 5. Batwoman - This book is just not my style. Feels flighty and unfocused. 6/7. Resurrection Man/Grifter - Honestly, I'm having ...

Thanks guys! I think a big thing is that I am 100% new to Swamp Thing, so I don't know the mythos at all. But I'm willing to give it a try :). The first issue was interesting enough to keep me for at least the next few. All I knew was that there was some kind of mystical thing that lived in the swa...

The New 52: Animal Man

It's occurred to me that the sense of deja vu might have been partially due to reading Sweet Tooth 1-24 the day before Animal Man 1. Same writer, and maybe a similar feel.

I liked everything about this, which surprised me after seeing Milligan's name on the cover. The vicious costumed kitty at the beginning set the tone. I don't really have much to say about it, but it was one of my favorites for the week. Interesting set-up and I want to see where it's going. I didn'...

The New 52: Batman and Robin

This was really well done, in a totally creepy skin-crawling way. There's a major sense of foreboding hanging over everything in this book. Damian comes off as a little psychopath, and Bruce is trying to teach him his own code of ethics. They have a really interesting dynamic. Is Damian a completely...

I'm Spaz or Draz, 27 years old. I work in a university in South Korea as a language instructor. It's pretty sweet, but I'm looking forward to quitting and moving to Germany.

I actually took out a line about fanfic writers out of that post. I thought it might be a bit too mean, you know not showing sufficient respect for the hard work they do.

AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser Image

I thought it was just a joke meant to highlight the (somewhat inappropriate) closeness of AoA Mystique to her son. A way of saying, hey everybody this is a different universe where she DID NOT throw him off a cliff as a newborn.

What If Marvel Did a New 52?

The idea of Marvel attempting a universe-wide reboot makes me shiver. They should wait until they can get the little ones right before they go really crazy. I was stunned to check out a weeks worth of the New 52 from DC and find that a lot of it was actually really good. You mean reboot doesn't have...

I still think X2 Nightcrawler was gross. The problem with the accent is that it is entirely unnatural to have perfect American style grammar yet still have a ridiculous exaggerated accent. He sounded like an American pretending to be German as a joke. (VE HAF VAYS OFF MAKING YOU TOCK.) He uses uncom...

I didn't start out seeking out German music specifically. I definitely do it now though. I'll check those out too, thanks. :)

You may be getting your Nightcrawler fix with Darkholme, but to me, he is Nightcrawler in look and code name only. Completely different character and in some instances even diametrically opposite.
