Ultimate Spider-Man is great if you haven't read any of it. Suprised Mori has said about it.

Oh it is but I wouldn't just jump on the Miles series. There's like twenty-five back trades to read first.

Ha yeah might be too much of a catch up needed there!

Are there any current Moon Knight or Ghost Rider type series ongoing at the moment?

Warren Ellis just finished a well received six issue or so run on Moon Knight, Brian Wood's doing it now. There's a Ghost Rider book at present but I think it's getting cancelled.

Been reading a few things this week Southern Bastards, Nailbiter, Low, Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi and Batman. I think reading digitally is the way forward for me I like the fact you can switch between series within a few clicks.

Quicksilver – I’m sorry, Pietro Maximoff – will appear in the new movie, Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Which means that, yes, he will be joining the Avengers in their comic book as well.

Which, yes, will coincide with the end of the comic book he is currently appearing in, All-New X-Factor #19, out in January.


Also Batman Endgame issues are rising up a dollar. $4.99 as the standard begins :dread:

Apparently new female Thor's identity isn't being revealed until well into 2015 :dread: :dread:

Just read through Avengers #1-3, was Ex Nihilo introduced before this series? The stuff with the builders seems intriguing too

What moment or era would you say was the catalyst for Scott Summers current characterization? For you, what put Scott Summers on the path that led to his fall from grace? (This can be from either an editorial standpoint or in-story or both)

I think going back to the Paul Smith issues, you can start seeing a characterization there -- particularly [Chris] Claremont trying to dig deeper than just vanilla guy, you know what I mean? That's where I remember as a fan reading and going, "Hm. I wonder what's cooking with this guy." I think Jean's death started him on a path, if I may. I think it started to manifest itself during the Paul Smith [issues] slowly, slowly, slowly and I think Jason [Aaron] and [Kieron] Gillen did really interesting work with it, and it's certainly worth pursuing as far as we can pursue it.

Of all the characters, he does seem to be the one where if he went full bad guy, people wouldn't be surprised. If he went full good guy, people wouldn't be surprised. That's what makes him the most interesting character in the X-Men Universe if not the Marvel Universe.

By the way, when we all argue with each other about the X-Men at the retreats, some people want a full-on bad guy, some people want [a full-on good guy]. It's a great conversation.

Scott is going to unlock something about his powers that will be interesting and fun to work with, so that's coming soon, too. We're coming to another chapter in the evolution of their powers, which will be an evolution of character.


Post-AXIS?

Before wrapping up on "Uncanny," "AXIS" is coming down the line -- will it be affecting the work you've been doing on the X-Men?

Well, I said online that there's not going to be any [effect]. But there will be fallout that affects "Uncanny" particularly. At the time I was asked, the ending wasn't locked and I didn't want to commit because at the time, I didn't see anything that I could grab that was -- I've done events and a lot of the fallout, I wanted to do that. It's the best part! I didn't want to be grabby. This is Rick [Remender]'s baby, but he wasn't directly using any of the characters I use, so I was like, "All right. I have so much to do!" But when he locked his ending, there was a couple of things that were offered to me if I wanted them. There was one thing in particular that I said, "That sounds great. I'll do it in a second." The fallout will be visible.


Hopefully it's something containing Beast and Death.

I thought I was the only person reading ANXF. I'm really enjoying it - always been a fan of Peter David since I used to read Spider-Man 2099 as a kid so it's nice to see him back doing X-Factor stuff.

Incidentally, Spider-Man 2099 has gotten off to a good start, so it might be worth checking that out. It's about to be disrupted by Spider-Verse, but we'll see how it goes.

Bleeding Cool are reporting ANXF is ending in January.

I noticed Pietro made a guest appearance in todays Capt issue with loads of other Avengers. Bet he'll be part of Remenders Astonishing Avengers lineup.

Yeah I'm really looking forward to that if that's the plan after Uncanny Avengers, the line-up will be interesting. I wonder if it'll stick with the half X-Men half Avengers theme. Wouldn't be surprised if Remender goes for a more "classic" roster since he loves that stuff.

Wouldn't surprise me with Hickman's run over soon, that Astonishing becomes the "main" Avengers book. With a line up almost identical to the Avengers 2 line up.

Then we'll get different teams like Secret/Mighty etc, but nothing interconnected like Hickman's run on Avengers/New Avengers.

So the first issue of Green Arrow by one of the Arrow writers came out this week. According to spoilers he gets rid of Lemire's supporting cast and brings in Felicity. :lol:

DC in a week: "We've given it serious thought but we're leaving the book at 4.99." Good on Snyder and Capullo for trying though.

Humberto Ramos appears to have given away the end of Spider-Verse. :lol:


Eagerly awaiting Slott's Twitter reaction to this.
