Who got it and what did you think? I loved it! I haven't enjoyed an X-book in a long time. I really appreciated the team breakdown chart in the back  ;)

Didn't get it. Won't get it as long as Magneto is on the team.

Love Mags, hate him as an "X-Man"

It's like Doom joining the FF. Neither are ... shall we say classic villains, but there is enough history there to keep him off a team that has Wolverine or Cyclops on it. I did enjoy his first two trips to "this side of the fence", but enough already.

Just finished issue 1 and I'm not sure how long I'll be on board.

This just doesn't feel like the X-men to me.  Especially with Namor and Danger on the team.  I don't like Colossus as Juggernaut either.  Everyone seems a little to full of themselves.


Title: Re: UNCANNY X-MEN

Just finished issue 3 and I am so glad I dropped this off my pull list.  Gillen's writing here is almost as bad as his Generation Hope was.

I was going to say the characters are way too full of themselves but I see I already wrote that up above about issue 1.

No matter what the title says, this is NOT the X-Men.

Colossus as Juggernaut - stupid
Magik's facial expressions of worry and near tears - out of character, the girl is supposed to have a heart of stone
Namor - why is he even in this book? No way would he take orders from Cyclops.
Magneto - see comment on Namor above.
Danger - she's a robot, not a mutant.  And a boring character. Also has worst "full of herself" line the book when she takes out all of the Sinister clones and then says...wait for it...."Welcome to the danger room.". Arrrrrg!
Storm - why is SHE on this team? She has a lot more class than these people.  Hands down, she would have been the first (or maybe 2nd behind Beast) to follow Wolverine back to the school.
Cyclops - I'm tired of him being a dick. Thats right, i said it.  He needs to be knocked down badly and put in his place - by Xavier.
Emma - the only good character in the book since she's SUPPOSED to be full of herself.
Hope - when did she get all these abilities to copy other powers? And why? We already have Rogue.  Give this character back to Duane Swierczynski so he can make her great again like he did in Cable.

This should be the flag ship X-book with the Uncanny title but it fails.  Fails BIG.

 ;D

Sounds like I want to pick this title up ... oh ... wait ... no it doesn't.

Actually, as I have said, I never understood Magneto being on the team at all, except for the very first, 'shocking' time. It was cool when it was first done, just because you knew maybe, just maybe, they thought they could handle him or change him, but time after time this guy screws them yet he is still on the team?

Over in X-Men Legacy they have Mag's in bed with Rogue.

Now THAT will make your head swim.  I thought her skin couldn't touch... No, I can't go there.

This is why ... things like this ... this is why I am slowly backing down on my comics each month.

Not blaming Marvel (or DC, or anyone) as it is almost impossible to keep stories 'fresh' and have new ideas that don't just suck or are revamps of other, earlier stories (planet Hulk), after writing them for over 40, close to 50 years, but things like having Magneto join the Xmen, after trying repeatedly to kill them and successfully killing thousands of people just kills any credibility for me, and then having Rogue sleep with him?

It is why I like the DC reboot, revamp, re ... whatever it is, because I get a chance to read new TO ME stories. Most of them failed  :D, but hey

Well,

They did a story a while back where Rogue gained control of her powers and can now touch other people, if she chooses. The relationship with Rogue and Magneto started back in the Savage Land when she did not have her powers, it was explored most fully in Age of Apocalypse, but it has always been there as a possibility. It is in character and well established that they have chemistry. The thing about X-men is each one of them seem more human and capable of anything good or bad in the right circumstances. They do not need a reboot to be interesting or switch sides. I am liking the book at this time.

I agree with you Sin on the Rogue/Magneto relationship.  I remember that issue from the Savage land.  It's one of my favorite X-Men arcs.

So what do you like about this current UXM title?

Well as I must continue to convey X-Men ignorance, as I stopped reading them around issue 230 and thanks to my piss poor memory, hardly remember anything on the issues I read  :D I say good for them, if it has/was already established of some hooky-upy or the hint of it, then cool.  :) Although I think it is crap  :D

However, I still stand firm in my belief that Magneto on the X-Men is nothing but a travesty.  >:(


Title: Re: UNCANNY X-MEN
Post by: sinisteri on January 15, 2012, 01:08:57 AM
Understand.

I love Magneto depicted as a complex character, not just a mindless villain. Not sure how long he will stay with the Xmen, but I am ok with his current translation. His schemes have not worked, and he is written as an older(not OLD) man who is rethinking his strategy with the knowledge of where his past took him. I see character growth and still the potential for more. If he feels strongly enough about something, he will break away again.


Title: Re: UNCANNY X-MEN
Post by: Perry on January 15, 2012, 06:42:26 AM
And I also prefer Mags as a complex character, because that is what he is. But he is also a murderer of thousands of people.

This is not a Rouge or Emma Frost situation where the "bad" becomes "good". Hell it took Rouge years before she was excepted and they felt she was rehabilitated, and she had killed how many people prior to that? Or the way Kitty hates and mistrusts Emma, as she should, and Emma is responsible for how many deaths? A lot I am sure under the Hellfire Club, but not nearly as much as Magneto. And both of them kinda "turned" once. But not this guy.

This is about a strong willed person joining the X-Men, then killing, then joining, then killing, then joining.

This is not about retribution, Mags can do that all he wants. Go grow as a character and form your own good guy team ... again. No, this is about the asinine way the "Good Mutants" keep allowing this killer of thousands to be part of this team.

He is a terrorist. A terrorist that may feel bad about his past deeds, but a terrorist non-the-less. A terrorist who has been given multiple chances at redemption and who has spit in the face of that opportunity time and time again.

Magneto should NEVER be on the X-Men

Perry,

I understand your point, and I must ask if you wrote the dialogue in the scene of Avengers, Children's Crusade where Wanda is defended for her actions in relation to other characters such as Emma, Rogue and others as well as Magneto. I will admit, it is a tough call. But, he is a powerful being I would prefer as a sometimes ally as opposed to an enemy just out there somewhere.

I would stay on the island, and you would be at the school. And dang it! I like you on my team!

Just finished reading #1-8 and LOVE this series. I am not a fan of the upcoming AvX arc and will be back after that.

When and WHY did T'Challa and Storm have thier marriage annulled?

When and WHY did T'Challa and Storm have thier marriage annulled?

AVENGERS vs X-MEN (Not sure of issue)

Done in a totally out of character manner, as shocking as that is, T'Challa does so himself.

So I read the recent Uncanny X-Men Annual and I really started to notice something that, for some strange reason, I hadn't noticed until this book. There are a shit ton of Mutants again.

When did this happen?

I know there were, at one time, only like 187 of them left after Wanda and her "No more Mutants" thing, and I get that there have been strides and more mutants born now and I know I was out of the X-books for awhile after that event, but after seeing hundreds upon hundreds of Mutants dying from the Terragin Cloud and then seeing a base camp in this issue filled with tent after tent of injured mutants and being told there are 11 such camps around the globe, when in the hell did the Mutant population take off like this again?

All we hear is how the mist is so bad for Mutants, but shit, seems to me they are popping up all over the place and like male deer in the winter, need to be thinned from time to time
 ;D

Okay, joke aside, honestly, where did all this recently dead or injured Mutants come from?
 :-\

It was either Wanda, or Hope (during/after or around the time of Messiah Complex) who rescinded No More Mutants. Either Wanda did it with another spell during Young Avengers: Children's Crusade, or when Hope was able to actively bring the mutant gene out of people.

I know there was a scene somewhere of Chamber on his death bed (you know, since he was only composed of energy when he blew out most of his organs), and that when he got his powers back, he was all better!! Same with scenes like with the Blob on his death bed-he got better.

That said, 'most' of the X-men we know all got their powers back, because, ya know, they are named figures. Across the world, not all mutants got their powers back. But there was nothing to stop newer mutants from developing.


Title: Re: UNCANNY X-MEN
Post by: Jeff on November 28, 2016, 08:55:36 AM
I seem to recall it was Hope as well.  But of course, my memory's not what it used to be.


Title: Re: UNCANNY X-MEN
Post by: Perry on November 28, 2016, 09:46:18 AM
Sweet, thanks for the run down.

I just don't like it. They are just not special, as "Mutants", when there are 100,000 of them. It just gets too close to that 90's time when you couldn't throw a rock without hitting a new mutant (Not a New Mutant Haha you know what I mean)
 :D

I am sure I will try the Blue and Gold series, as well as the Generation X books, heck, maybe even the solo titles, but I just like my X-books to relay a different sense than that of what most people like I guess. I really liked the 186 idea as it brought it back to the way it was. A small prosecuted sect of peoples and their fight against that oppression and the fight of other mutants. Now it just seems a lot of fighting against other mutants again.

But we'll see I guess.

Well crap, almost caught up on this current Uncanny run by Rosenberg, one that I am enjoying, and it looks like issue #22 will be its last issue.
 >:(
Nothing confirmed as the solicits I am reading doesn't say "last issue" but it is extra-sized, so of course extra-priced and it states "... it all ends here. This is forever"
Could just be comic hyperbole but I don't think so with Hickman doing his two 6 issue X-Men mini-series starting the same month  :-\
