So… Deadpool no longer thinks he’s in a comic book? It’s a sad, sad future in Uncanny X-Men. By the way, do who have any confirmation on which Jean Grey, the Jean Grey from the future is? Is she the old Jean Grey revived once again, or is she the young Jean who stayed on in the present and became the older Jean in the future? Because my brain is starting to hurt again. Talking of which…

There’s a short story by Isaac Asimov called The Dead Past (spoilers) in which time travel has been outlawed, because technology allows people to view anywhere in the past. And the past can just be one second ago… and that’s what Horizon Labs have invented in Superior Spider-Man. happy goldfish bowl everyone!

Okay, so heroes can’t be happily married. But, in The Darkness, anti-heroes can be…

Cyberforce6-Xthoughts1

Cyberforce goes for bottoms first.

Aph9-Xthougths2In Aphrodite IX, some girls don’t need a dragon tattoo. They are a dragon.

kissmesatan1 Nothing moves but their eyeballs in Kiss Me Satan #1… don’t have an accident in that thing in your first issue, okay?

buzzkill

Too late for Buzzkill #1…

harbinger_016_crop

And Harbinger has a vehicle that, basically, no one wants to get in an accident with. Of course, there are other ways to get around.

bounce

And Bounce knows plenty of them. Though this travel-by-Care-Bear-Stare is one of the best.

Thankfully Cyclops helps lower the average per face to something more mangeable. He also goes for the head butt in X-Men Legacy, a superhero fighting move rarely seen. You now, he probably couldn’t have done this as well before he lost his bulky visor…

conan20 No, that’s two words. Learn to count, Conan.

X-O Manowar expands the immigration policy of the United States Of America. It won’t last.

Yours alone, Morbius, The Living Vampire? Easily achieved, your book is cancelled with this issue. And no one will bother you again…

So, apparently this comic is called Savage Wolverine. I wonder why?

dragon

And, apparently this comic is called Savage Dragon. I wonder why? Anyone for Sushi? Or do you have anything you’d prefer to eat?

zero

Have you got any ketchup with that, Zero #1? Seriously, there’s just too much cannibalism in comics right now.

peter

I hope you weren’t being literal there, Jacques. Peter Panzerfaust can cope with many things but please don;t let it join the cannibal ranks…

morning

What they need in Morning Glories is a Dream Thief. Say, can you delve into my dreams and find what my favourite band was when I was nine?

dreamthief5

Oh dear. Don’t worry, I discovered The Jam shortly afterwards.
