Wednesday Trending Topics: A Whole New World To Fight In

Posted by January 19, 2012 Comment

I haven’t read Uncanny X-Men recently and have been meaning to catch up since Rich has been talking about it, but since I have been intrigued by what we’ve heard about Avengers vs X-Men so far, this quote from Rich today caught my eye: “And we have a new Savage Land, an area of the country isolated and taken forward in evolutionary time to create a whole new world to fight in.”

Awesome.  Marvel Studios and Fox, please start collaborating on an Avengers vs X-Men movie, set some of it in the Savage Land, and break the bank on fx.  I just don’t see how that’s not the best comic book movie ever.

Okay, I like the new Uncanny X-Men. Entwined in inter-book continuity, it doesn’t need any new knowledge to pick it up. The Storm and Namor dialogue is possibly the very best in superhero comics right now. And we have a new Savage Land, an area of the country isolated and taken forward in evolutionary time to create a whole new world to fight in.
