    [WIR] X-Men II: Focussed Totality Is A Song Within Her When Ah'm Blastin'!

    Taking a short break, probably just a week. In the meantime, here's Butch Guice on the creative process for our next comic: Just amazing. I mean, getting invited to launch a major, high-profile new series spinning off the best-selling title in comics at the time, then being told to make an...

    November 5, 1985 At the movies: On the radio: Uncanny X-Men 202 Rachel has decided to act on her seething, obsessive hatred for the Beyonder and goes on an all-out attack against him: I'm not feeling this design for Rachel, honestly. Adams's version looks great, but this does not...

    [MCU] Rumor Thread: It was the dawning of the 4th Phase [Contains Endgame Spoilers]

    That's basically 60s Magneto, a Hitler-type authoritarian: Thing is, more modern Magnetos are, well, better than Silver Age Magneto. I don't even dislike the character like many others do -- Hitler makes for a decent bad guy, as popular fiction in the West since the 30s has demonstrated many...

    [MCU] Rumor Thread: It was the dawning of the 4th Phase [Contains Endgame Spoilers]

    [WIR] X-Men II: Focussed Totality Is A Song Within Her When Ah'm Blastin'!

    I feel much the same way about all the tidbits shared by you and others about old memories of reading these way back when and of interesting or goofy directions the material went in/came from in other comics. Yeah -- the Rita thing stops short of a full revelation, but the future uses of these...

    October 29, 1985 At the movies: On the radio: Longshot 6 of 6 Mojo and Spiral return Rita to her house, her mind emptied of all thoughts. She never broke before her mind was ravaged senseless, though, so the pair of villains have no information on Longshot from her. Bereft of any...

    October 29, 1985 At the movies: On the radio: Power Pack 19 We open on Erg looming over Katie in an alley commanding her to "look into my electric eye -- and feel its power . . ." as he charges up an energy blast, but it's a fake out. On the following page we see they're just playing a...

    Oooohhhh. That makes more sense. October 22, 1985 At the movies: On the radio: New Mutants 36 Magneto guides Roberto through a solo session in the Danger Room, testing the limits of his strength. With a bit of goading he's able to coax the teen into lifting his highest ever recorded...

    Meanwhile in Secret Wars II . . . In the sixth issue of Secret Wars II, the Beyonder briefly destroys the concept of Death, but thinks better of it and brings it back. More than a little freaked out by this, the various cosmic entities of the Marvel Universe spend issue #7 conspiring with...
