Dan Slott claimed in an interview that Reilly was the Jackal in Spider-Island.
Back around to another question from Marvel.com: If Ben Reilly is the Jackal, where’s Miles Warren? “We’ve seen like 20 Miles Warrens,” Slott said. “All of his lackeys are Miles Warren. Right now, we’ve had the Jackal, and it’s been this way since Spider-Island,’ whenever we see him, he’s been waited on hand and foot by Miles Warren clones — and now we know that was Ben Reilly! What is going on!”
They should have just strawberry floated the X-Men off into their own separate continuity after Secret Wars. Bored of them now and it would hopefully stop the whiny banana split fans moaning about how poorly they are being treated and how Marvel are favouring the Inhumans when theres about 7 or 8 new X-Books coming out
The relaunch next year sounds absolute shite too. One of the main books again being all about the young time-displaced X-Men that no one cares about, and the other being a more traditional X-Men one but with Kitty Pryde being the leader when strawberry floating Storm is on the team(?). It was funny reading an interview with one of the writers going on about the usual prejudice and racism the teams face when both books are incredibly white with Storm being the only non-white character between the two main books.
That Weapon X book from Greg Pak that's basically just X-Force sounds interesting but Greg Land is on art and I immediately lost interest.
It's quite amusing across the web that most (not all) reaction seems to be laughing at the Inhumans getting what they deserve - but the underlying impression is that Marvel is trying to paint them as the underdogs/victims/ones to root for.
Has any recent Marvel event ever managed to paint the designated good/bad guys the way they want?
Guys have I been missing a trick by not checking comic prices through Kindle? They seem to be the same as the Comixology version, even letting you download them through the Comixology app but there are some serious price differences.
Age of Ultron Complete Event €27 on Comixology €7.90 on Kindle
Superior Spider-Man Vol 1 €7.99 on Comixology €2.03 on Kindle
