@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

So Marvels been spilling the beans pretty early about their post X-men vs.Inhumans plan a bit. I'd say we are in for a revamp of the entire line since we now have quite a few titles titles. Some that are really calling back to the 90's era of the series.

 

X-men Blue

X-men Gold

Generation X (Jubilee confirmed!)

Cable

Weapon X

 

and a few new solo titles for some characters who have never really had a solo series before

 

Jean Grey

Iceman

 

Now how the older titles will become is up in the air yet. The Blue and Gold series are supposed to be returning to more of a Superheroic feel in a world that hates and fears them and less the end is nigh for Mutantkind like its been for a decade. Gen X is presumedly our new school title with Jubilee featuring somehow (teaching would be soooo weird). No word on how Cables going to be but Weapon X has been billed as to the hardcore, jive is going to fly title.

 

Jean and Iceman however are the titles catering to certain crowds. Jean will most likely become the strong female lead title and I'm absolutely cool with that. Jean has long been the uber powerful character in the x-men only to get fridged to take it back down a peg. Now hopefully this is still the young Jean in the modern era which I do enjoy having around but given the ResurrXion tag line, older Jean coming back from the white hot room seems possible.

 

Iceman however will probably be the comic catering to the LBGT community with his retconned new status as being gay. And otherwise I'm cool with the fact Bobby is getting a solo series. Jean and Him were the only 2 of the original team never to get any solo focus I believe. I'm still not cool with the retcon though. If it was just the younger Bobby discovering something in the new current era I'd be more apt to go with it, but to force it onto the original Bobby who's been through relationship after relationship and had issues with Northstar being around, it's just not sitting well with me. Still it's also not determined whether the title is focused on the older or younger Bobby, for all we know currently it's going to be both which would be a weirdly interesting dynamic. I'm beginning to think the original 5 that Older Beast ripped from their past has set a different timeline in motion from the 616 and thus the reason they can't go back is that the 616 timeline is somehow already set somehow and that their time has divergerged onto it's own path and somehow the time travel conventions they have normally used isn't working. Plus there is the Secret Wars and the multiversal splintering and reconverging... anyways gone off on a tangent..

 

So what do you guys think of the ResurrXion news?

Man, Marvel sure is doing a poor job of killing the X-Men forever and replacing them. People keep saying that's what they're doing and yet they keep walking it back like this.

I am utterly disinterested in Resurroion until they announce solo teams.
Also I'm skeptical that Jean and Iceman can hold their own series, and after how badly Bendis Bendised up the "coming out" of Iceman, I'm incredibly unenthusiastic about the prospect of more gay Iceman stories.

Yeah, now the X-Men don't have to worry about being killed off, just about being badly written like 70% of other Marvel titles.
(seriously though I think it's pretty unambiguous that Marvel has been trying to deemphasise the X-Men out of spite, especially since the ban on artists drawing them at cons)

Well, this sounds pretty great to me. I agree that solo books are unlikely to last long in most cases (but what books do?).

But ultimately... Gen X? Jubilee? Yes please. None of the rest really matters.

I really hope Bishop ends up on one of the teams, preferably Gold. Problem is that I just don't know how to any X-Men rosters manageable with just 2 teams. Even back in the old days there were only 13 or 14 characters max, and people complained it was too many. I have more favourites than that, damnit! I'm also including dead characters in my wishlist, because why not.

 

Gold: Storm

Wolverine

Colossus

Jean Grey

Archangel

Bishop

Domino

Gambit

Cable

 

 

Blue:
Cyclops

Psylocke

Beast

Rogue

Magik

Marrow

Iceman

Surge

 

Maintenance Staff: Forge and Cecilia Reyes (Cecilia would essentially be a full-time, albeit reluctant, Blue Team member)

THANK GOD. That was the biggest, most glaring change to me when Claremont originally left. Seriously.


Question: 

 

Is original Wolverine still dead/encased in Adamantium/suffering from the lamest death issue ever?

Original Wolverine is still dead.

But ANAD Wolverine has been a really good book so, fair trade.


-ZacWilliam, vanilla Logan is still pretty played out. I think he needs to rest until he feels interesting again...

I am kinda amazed they haven't brought him back yet beyond extra-dimmensional counterparts.

 

Course, it's been.....12 years since Jean Grey died. And also Marvel hated mutants until now, apparently.

Hmm, in the few places I've seen him I'd say the post-Morrison guest appearances were passable but kinda uninspired. He was "Morrison-Noh Varr light." The Bendis Avengers appearances were pretty awful and pointless, bland and personality-less (like Bendis Avengers in general really). Young Avengers NV was a fine character on the other hand, used and developed passably, he just didn't seem connected at all to any previous versions in personality or expression.

I guess I'd say he's been very inconsistent. At this point Ewing could really do anything with him and not be way afield because there's kinda been no consistant field to aim for.


-ZacWilliam, though in the interview Ewing says he's gonna try to bridge the versions some so if he can pull that off it can only help NV

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement of a new ongoing series starring the Inhuman Royal Family, Marvel has announced that the Inhuman king Black Bolt will soon get his very first ongoing series. The new “Black Bolt” ongoing, which was announced via io9, will be written by novelist Saladin Ahmed (“The Crescent Moon Kingdoms”) and featuring art by Christian Ward (“The Ultimates”).

http://www.cbr.com/m...-inhumans-line/

Yeah, could be cool. Author's apparently a popular sci-fi novelist, so.

I'm honestly already more excited by the Inhuman lineup than by the X-Men.
