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."

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.

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

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

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.

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"

3? We're getting 5. It's obvious that this is a week-long series of reveals. okay maybe not

 

I loved Rosenberg's Kingpin, but this isn't doing much for me, mostly because of the complete tonal disconnect between Kamala/Luna and the others. I'll be interested if he can pull it off, but for god's sake, they're a teenager and a 10-year-old, respectively. What are they doing on a clandestine spy team?

Quelle surprise: X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold are basically just a rebranded All-New X-Men and Extraordinary X-Men with different creative teams, which means we're stuck with the painfully tiresome Kirby & Lee X-Kids on Blue, and an uninspiring lineup and mediocre author (who's also reportedly the man responsible for Arrow going to shit) on Gold.
I like a lot of Bunn's work - particularly his Magneto - but he does tend to be either very good or incredibly bad, and I don't have faith that he'll be the former with the O5 involved.
 
What with Ewing and Rosenberg on the Inhumans and an X-Men line that's increasingly looking like ANAD X-Men with a new coat of paint, I suspect I'm not the only one who's going to be far more interested in the former.
 
(But there's Kitty and Rachel on the same team, so who knows; we might finally get the Promised Lesbians.)

Oh, and... I'll give you ten quid that Hopeless will be the author on Generation X.

I win either way; either I'm £10 richer or Hopeless isn't writing Generation X.

I'm optimistic about Blue and Gold. Despite the annoying Iceman retcon I've enjoyed having the Teen Original Five around but under the tutelage of Magneto is going to be interesting. Mags hasn't been near the main teams since their short jump to Older Scotts Weapon X school so it should be interesting how they react to someone they had previously had only fought against. I'll stay on board as long as Bachelo is nowhere near the artwork.

And Gold looks like a classic mix of near Excalibur and the most current of the more popular classic characters. My only problem is where are some of the newer characters? Will all the new characters get shoved to Gen X or Xforce?

Not sure about Rachel's new codename -- "Prestige" makes me think she has heavy paper stock or something. But teaming the O5 with Magneto strikes me as a pretty viable way of keeping them interesting.

My first thought was doing 1 book of the original team and 1 book of the famous Claremont team makes a lot of logical sense. But then I heard the complaints about how rediculously non diverse/non representative these teams are with only one PoC between both teams and yeah I have to say that's not really cool for a line that is meant to be a metaphor for persecution and prejudice.


-ZacWilliam, so we'll see, I guess. But yeah once that is brought to mind it's a pretty offputting flaw...

Okay, so, each of the books so far has something hamstringing them.
Iceman is focused entirely on his sole personality trait, his gayness. (Which isn't a surprise, because it overwrote his previous sole personality trait of being a ladies' man.)
Generation X is using such beloved characters as Quentin Quire and Eyeboy. (I'd still be interested, but hug, Quire is so intolerable.)
Jean Grey is being written by Dennis Hopeless, AND it's about Teen Jean.
Weapon X has art by Greg Land.
 
If Cable has a decent team on it, I'll settle for that, Weapon X and X-Men Blue, but I'm not thrilled about this line.

Eye boy isn't bad at all. "Spider-man and the X-men" was easily the best Xbook of the last decade IMO and he was one of the class in that.

While I haven't read him myself X-men: Year One by Hopless folcused on young Jean and is a huge favorite of all the biggest Xfans I know.


-ZacWilliam, Iceman also has always been a joker and goofy "younger brother" so he has had as much personality as the rest of the original 5.

I mean, I can get behind Eyeboy on the basis of this being a bunch of weirdos and outsiders with little-to-no practical application for their powers, but I never want to read a comic with Kid Omega in it ever again.

And personally, I just can't bring myself to read Hopeless's work. Avengers Arena/Undercover was just awful, ANXM is bad, and Spider-Woman is completely uninteresting. I just think he's one of the worst writers at Marvel currently.

(I was kind of exaggerating about Iceman, but he's hardly ever been a big player, and I'm still irritated about how horribly that retcon was handled.)

Ya not thrilled about the Gen X cast. Jubes is about the only one I won't mind seeing back other than a tad bit of Quire... I at least liked when him and Wolverine went space gambling to fund the school.

 

Jean's title I'm actually interested in as I've not read much of Hopeless's work to be biased against him and I actually find young Jean the most interesting of the young O5 X-men. She's the only one who never got to meet her future self but sees all she did for everyone and this weird extended family she's suddenly inherited with Rachel, Nathan, and Nate (is X-man still running around?) while also knowing her own family have been wiped out by an alien race just for being in her same gene pool.

 

Weapon X is just Uncanny X-force 3.0 or 4.0 by now. I can't remember. I'm curious to see the dynamic between Old Man Logan and Nice Sabretooth.

 

But I'm still not happy at all about the Iceman retcon. no plans to touch that book anytime soon.

The man made Magneto talk about how normal humans "don't really feel pain" and fed them into crematoriums.

People not getting HIS characters is poetic justice.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Yeah, there's a lot of Morrison's stuff that kkkkkinda sucks. (See: everything about his treatment of gender in... er, everything, but particularly The Invisibles.)

Also, he deliberately wrote a bad comic as the "draw" of Multiversity, which nerds love to gush over because it's, like, meta, bro!*

The main thing about Morrison's work that I'm glad for is that his Doom Patrol run led into a trans woman writing it and introducing an actual transgender hero, even if both Coagula and the run as a whole were promptly ignored by DC.

 

*Goddamn, now I'm wondering if my inability to be wowed by Weird Meta Comics was a result of reading Homestuck at such a tender age.
