Now to update my Facebook. What? What's a Faceb--JUST SHUT UP AND CAPTURE THE X-MEN you purple fuck!!"
    It's from the portfolio of the much forgotten character "Sureshot," real name Fuji Nikon.
    Whose mutant ability stemmed from his ever present camera around his neck, and resulted in images that captured the actions and emotions of the X-men in their most pivotal moments.
    The character was dumped after it was recognized that Sureshot was a racist caricature, or it may have been that he was finally kicked off the team for taking too many upskirt photos of his teammates.

    Save your money and spend it instead on strippers. It's a better investment!

The write for the trade attitude is just a way to pad a 2 issue story into 6 issues.
    I agree. It seems (and I'm mind reading/assuming here) that the writer (and his editors) are aiming this book at fans of the writer, who they assume will buy the book because (a) it is written by a popular super star writer and (b) fans will find the first issue so overwhelmingly "interesting" and a "great" read.

    Good lord.... I do NOT feel like sitting through more Bendis. No using Spider-man for comic relief this time, BMB...
    ~Hah... HAH, I SAY!!! The only way I'll even start to believe any attempt that he makes to pay what he owes is sincere and genuine is if he pawns the damn Porsche and uses that as collateral.

    This is like me shooting a baby in the head, and trying to sound all repentative pleading my case, WHILE CHEWING ON IT'S CORPSE.~


    My opinion of Pat Lee.

    LOL!!! Love it. You just know Grant Morrison would run with a character like this.

Placing the start of it right after Jean's death doesn't make that much sense since he was still acting like the same ol' Scott all the way until Jean came back, till they got married etc. Morrison even mentioned the Apocalypse influence early on during his New X-Men run, with Scott still trying to move on from being merged with him, and had intended him to be "free" by the end of his run. With the way Scott's been written, it could easily be said that wasn't the case.
    Well played, man. I like that. It makes closer sense than what I was thinking. I drifted out of X-stuff couple years after Claremont left, so I can't say I'm too versed in the Apocalypse stuff (other than his time as villain in the original 80's X-FACTOR)

    Also, agree with everyone else, just some sloppy conceptualization with the image of Jean, having framed photos of events where no one could have taken pictures of them.
    That's JEAN?! I thought it was Kitty Pryde!!

    It's definitely aimed at the reader that thinks pages and pages of talking heads and "witty" banter is great storytelling and that's the only way to have character developement. Unfortunately it's an x-book and has a a-list artist so it will look like ole bendis still sells. And the write for the trade way of writing keeps lumbering on.

    Really? Even with Spider-Woman and Moon Knight on his resume, people think that Bendis' presence is responsible for any significant amount of sales?
