X-Force #18 Review

And now about the bad news. This article is full of spoilers, so read carefully.


Writers: Craig Kyle & Christopher Yost

The issue opens with H.A.M.M.E.R. departing with X-23. They leave two soldiers behind with orders to kill Boom Boom. One them is starting to get a little frisky when Proudstar shows up and kills him. He takes out the other goon as well and is tending to Tabitha as he sees the sudden light show. Domino is racing to the source of the disturbance only to find Archangel and Wolverine have things under control although Noriko, Elixir and Keller are all down. They transport the youngsters to a nearby safe house and try to figure out what happened to Laura. X-23 is being transported by H.A.M.M.E.R. They land in the Facility where Kimura and the scientists are waiting to take custody of her. We get a brief interlude with Rahne and her Wolf Prince fighting the Frost Giants. Hrimhari is doing a good job hurting them and orders Wolfsbane away but she refuses, wanting to stay and fight at his side. Another scene change and we find Caliban, Eli Bard and Wither at a grave in Salem Center. They somehow raise the occupant and we see it is Doug Ramsey. Back at the X-Men headquarters, Surge, Foley and Hellion are being tended by Beast. Wolverine tackles Cyclops and pins him to the ground telling him if anything happens to the kids it is his fault. Cyclops takes responsibility and Logan fills him in on a bit of their mission to the future. He leaves to try and find Laura. Wolverine, Domino and Proudstar interrogate Tabitha and she remembers the name S.H.I.E.L.D. Division C. That sparks something to Logan and he orders the Cuckoos into Cerebra. We then see Laura being rudely awakened by Kimura. One arm has already been cut off and Kimura is applying a chainsaw to rest of her.

I hated it. I mean I totally loved it, especially the part where Logan and Scott solve their problem like men, but still. First - shitty add-story about Rahne and her lover boy. SO not interested. Then - so little Laura in her own story ark, I could hang myself. And off course the fact that everything we get to read about X is just indescribably bad. Our girl is in trouble.


I just have to mention that neither Hellion nor Surge have died and it's awesome! You can finally officially rest, true believers. They are hurt, Elixir got the worst from it, and I somehow see some bad stuff coming for him at the and of it, but alive is alive. I'm just very happy to see them in this issue. God, I want Hellion on the team!



As usuall, I'm looking forward to reading next issue. I just can't wait. X-Force is the best comic book ever.

Dark Avengers #8 Review

I'm back on truck and happy to be, so let's not waste time =) Here is a review of Dark Avengers #8, please beware the spoilers!
Writer: Matt Fraction
Penciler: Luke Goss
Inker: Rick Magyar, Mark Pennington & Luke Goss

The issue opens with Dani in Las Vegas making a deal with Hela to become a Valkyrie. Back in San Francisco, Emma’s X-Men have taken down Trask and spend the next week endearing themselves to the city while Cyclops sits and waits. The Dark X-Men get a look at the Omega Machine and Cloak and Dagger are really upset with the pain it causes its subjects. Meanwhile, Osborn is very happy with the new team and is ready to pull the Avengers out of the city as a show of good faith. The X-Men Science team finally finishes their work underwater and fire up the engines starting the process of powering up the machines. We flash to Alcatraz island where Dark Beast is putting Hank McCoy through the Omega Machine to power up Omega. He goes to get another subject only to find that they are all gone. X-force has arrived and used Illyana to teleport out all the prisoners. Dark Beast screams for backup and Omega comes running while the rest of Emma’s team mobilizes. Scott gives the command and they raise up what looks to be Asteroid M in the middle of the bay and Pixie starts moving the mutants to their new home. Omega and Dark Beast face X-Force and are carved up quickly. The rest of the team arrives and Daken starts making threats about killing them all. He is taken down from behind by Emma while Namor deals with Mimic. Illyana makes one more teleport trip to take everyone out. Emma convinces Cloak and Dagger to come along as well. Scott holds a press conference on his new island home with Emma at his side. He says that they have left the mainland but will not be pushed or prosecuted any more. He throws down the gauntlet for Osborn who accepts, taking the remaining Dark X-Men and his Avengers on the attack.

This issue surprised me in a VERY good way, because I really missed my precious brilliant kick ass Emma Frost. And even more I missed her being with Cyclops. I guess I can even forgive all the crap Fraction fed us with all the time just for Emma's face when she was ready with Daken.

Here you go, my girl! I never doubted you, just like Wolverine.

The Daken vs. X-23 cover is off course a total BS. Jesus, people, stop putting Laura on covers to get people interested! If they buy more comics because she is a superstar Marvel teenager AND you know it, why not, you know, actually put her in the book? Doing, well, what she's doing on the cover. Laura is mentioned to appear in awesome Dark Wolverine series, though, so it could be OK. The bad thing is - in his own series, Daken is way too cool-smart-sexy-blahblah. I think we should not underestimate him, but it's just like creepy Mary Sue fan fiction.

Now of Laura's appearances. She is good drawn and in her bad Messiah Complex costume.

And she kicks Omega's ass.

Prick deserved it! But what disturbs me the most, just like in the previous Utopia chapter, is the way she talks.

No way. Laura Kinney just doesn't do compliments. On the mission. To anybody. And even more than that - she would never patronize Domino. But we get her even cameo-style. It's still great.

Advance X-Solicits, November 2009

Chris Yost video interview on X-23 plus a comiquette


Chris Yost gives a video interview about Laura Kinney, her creation and why she was originally created in the "X-Men: Evolution" animated series.
The characters in the "Evolution" series were all teenagers, except for Wolverine, who was an adult. The creators didn't want him just to become younger all of a sudden, so they decided to "do him again". Yost tells us about X-23's character and her differences with Wolverine, which are very important to him, because otherwise she would just be "Wolverine with woman parts". He also says that Laura is an important character of the whole Marvel Universe and "needs to be there and deserves to be there". It's very flattering to hear if you're a fan.

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/videos.php?videoID=462\



During the whole video this amazing, god-like comiquette of X is being shown. You can watch a little video teaser here. If you didn't already see it, you'll absolutely LOVE it. Too bad it costs a whole fucking lot. Also, there is an unpainted version, just for fun.

Cover Price: $2.99 Release Date: Wed, August 19th, 2009

San Francisco is still reeling from the onslaught of the Dark Avengers, Rogue struggles to cope with the power and perspective of a God, the young X-student Trance undergoes a terrifying transformation, and X-Men Legacy takes a dramatic new direction.

Laura isn't on any of this pages, but it's still pretty much interesting.

Uncanny X-Men #514 review

I think I can say that this story is good. If not quality-good, then totally quantity-good. You see a lot of awesome characters, that Mr. Hellfire rightfully called "cameo queens", you get a LOT of fan service, good God, what more can we possibly await from Fraction's run? Personally, I would be OK with this whole unnecessary story, if not for Cyclops/Emma conflict. I sure as hell hope they're gonna get together eventually. There is a couple of spoilers, which are absolutely not spoilers at all: There is only one cool thing - Bullseye/Daken action. No, it IS lame, but I happen to like Bullseye a whole lot and their strange relationship is bothering me since the beginning of Dark Wolverine series. Seeing one of my favorite characters (Emma Frost) touching other of my favorite characters (Bullseye) is fun. Which brings me to the next point: This is a nice cover of Simone Bianchi. Let's oversee Laura's face and just be happy. Aw, if only the authors would not just draw covers with her, but would also actually write, you know?


Laura also appears at the end for one page and calls Warpath James, which is a little out of character and annoys me. She works with Warpath, Domino, Wolverine and Magik.

About other stuff: Cyclops summons a team of girls (Iceman, Northstar, Colossus and Warpath being the only exceptions) and gives them different specific orders. He also assembles the X-Club to do some research underwater (is it a lame excuse to change Psylocke's costume like he promised? Is it?). Dark X-Men do some "cool" fighting, that, honestly, is lame beyond description, and all the X-Men do is "watch and learn". We also get a L.A.M.E (even for him!) Cyclops' "We are a team, goddammit!" speech. Reminds me of his Astonishing X-Men 01 quote: "Even I was bored". Emma is saying "Darling" probably more than she ever has and even in plural. This is just sad, Matt. Really. We get a HILARIOUS picture of Emma and Namor standing with their asses pressed on each other, like they're dancing drunk. I laughed my ass off.

So, we get not-so-bad but also not-so-good issue and hope that next two will finally show us more than just some women running around. Not that it's a bad thing, of course.

CCC09: X-Men Panel

Marvel's X-Men panel at Chicago Comic-Con interviewed Jim McCann, Chris Yost and Craig Kyle of "X-Force," and Jason Aaron, writer of "Wolverine: Weapon X". This is interesting, guys! X-Force is addressed very often, and so is the future of X-23 and also her sexual life =) With Daken! Also New X-Men characters are mentioned.

"There's a character from the New X-Men days called Wither. Seline seduced him, cuz she likes the youngin's, Other resurrected characters share a trait with him. "There's a lot of death, which might be surprising coming from us," Yost joked. "This is one of two big stories that X-Force is telling. [...] Kyle said that "Necrosha" would "reward the fan and what they want to read," saying that one could just read "X-Force" but will "get a richer story" by buying the crossover books.What's up with Hope? "Elixir knows," Kyle said, and that answer will be revealed. "A little sooner than you might think," Yost added.

"Coming out of Messiah Complex, the team was X-23, Wolverine, Warpath, and Wolfsbane," Yost said of the X-Force's composition and acknowledging there were criticisms of the blade-focused debut group. "We knew we wanted Archangel, and we needed a van, something to carry them around. So we got Vanisher." He noted that the team continues to evolve, with Kyle adding that Domino was added to lighten the mood. "We didn't want this to just be the most violent, depressing book you've ever read--we also want you to laugh," he said. Kyle concluded, "Deadpool is coming. He's on his way." [...] As to the fact that X-Force's mission to the future nearly led to Boom-Boom's death, Yost said that some of this would be addressed in this week's issue. "Wolverine and Cyclops are going to have their little face-to-face, and Wolverine will explain very simply that he didn't like it." Cyclops will stress that he's fighting for the future of the entire race, Yost said. [...] New characters in "X-Force?" "There will be a big roster shift after Necrosha," Kyle said, "not all tragic." In addition to Deadpool, "over the next 15 issues or so you'll see a lot of new characters." [...] Prodigy in Necrosha? "He's still alive. For now," Kyle said. The writer added that, though "we love those kids," he and Yost felt it was time to step away from the characters.



Asked whether Deadpool mentioning X-29 in "Messiah War" was a joke, Kyle smiled thoughtfully before answering. "Here's the thing. Chris and I probably have less issues ahead of us with X-23 than we do behind us," Kyle said. He saw his and Yost's role as "going from the guys who effed her up to the guys who protected her." "We're going to do every story we fear is in her future now" to prevent bad stories in future. "We want to establish her so that when someone effs her up, you'll scream about it." He said X-29 was a joke by Deadpool, but may also be true. [...] Daken and X-23 will not have an incestuous sexual relationship, Kyle said, though a fan quipped that the writer just said he trying to tell all the potential bad X-23 stories. "That might be the one I don't tell."

"There are very very strong ramifications for the mutant community as a result of Dark Reign," McCann said, citing the current "Utopia" storyline. [...] There are no plans for a continuous story between the various X-books, McCann said.

"There's a team coming up with Doctor Nemesis and X-23," Yost said. "They're both very happy people," Kyle added.

Uncanny X-Men #514 preview

CBR provides us with upcoming UXM preview. I think, the art of Dodsons is very good, i liked them back in Genaration X, like them now. Psylocke's costume is a bit sexist though, but we can't forget that we're still reading comic book here, can we. Can hardly wait for the next week.
Laura is mentioned in the preview. I hate the way Fraction compromise X-Force for the millionth time now!

UTOPIA rages on! Norman Osborn’s victory in San Francisco is cemented when the Dark X-Men succeed where the X-Men can’t. All the while the Dark Avengers are forced to watch from the sidelines. But how long will Bullseye and Ares sit idle? Part 4 (of 6)

New X-Men are coming back!

As many of us know, the "X-Men - Legacy" series will take another turn with the Mike Carey run. New characters will be added to the mix. Since the beginning of the first ark of the renamed comic book, we followed Charles Xavier on his quest for his mistakes and memories. If you ask me, I didn't like the story much, Xavier is far from my favorite characters and I wouldn't like him to join the X-Men again, but I think it won't be the case. Now, more interesting characters take his place - Rogue, who recently became full control over her powers, Gambit and sometimes Danger. The book also will finally be back in current continuity. Let's see what Mike Carey has to say in his interview for Marvel.com.

Mike Carey: [...] Now we see Rogue going back to the X-Men, but not to business as usual. Cyclops has a specific role that he wants her to take on, and it's very different from the last role he offered her back in X-MEN #188. It's a role that will bring her into regular contact with the youngest members of the X-Men's cast: the former students at the Xavier Academy.

Marvel.com: How would you say the shift of focus from Professor X to Rogue changes the overall tone of the title?

Mike Carey: [...] I suspect that in some ways the flavor won't change all that much. In other ways, though, you could see this as a return to the kind of stories that I was telling in X-MEN before it became X-MEN: LEGACY, with a bigger-albeit rotating-cast falling into and out of strategic alliances with each other. There'll be some changes, of course, just because of who's in that cast: we're talking about former New and Young X-Men stalwarts, about Trance, Indra, Bling, Loa, Hellion, Surge. They'll bring their own personalities to the book, and that will shift the way some stories are told.

If I remember correctly, previous "X-Men" run (back then without the "Legacy" part) had a lot of characters, and many of them got too little prime time. But it was good and one actually couldn't complain. So there is a serious chance that we'll really see our youngsters back on scene. BUT: if they're support cast, there is no hope.

Nation X

IGN Comics: The description I read for Nation X promises an "all-new, all-different X-Men" coming out of Utopia. What can you say about the state of the team as Nation X opens?

Matt Fraction: I think it's safe to say that, through Nation X, we're going to have a lineup and a group of people as X-Men that you've never seen before – living in a world we've not seen before and with a status quo that we've not used before. Things really, really change in a way that I think is really new and different and exciting. It's not a rehash of things we've done before. Things really are upside down different from here on out. [...] The status quo for the book and the team itself are completely changed.

So, Fraction promises us a completely different set of characters, mostly those, who he spent a year preparing for what's yet to come in his Uncanny X-Men. Cyclops will be in charge of everything. Time of Xavier and Magneto is over. There will also be a return of Magneto. Personally, I don't really care if Magneto is back or not, as far as I'm concerned, he got enough attention in the "Wolverine and the X-Men" cartoon and Ultimatum and there is enough going on without him doing his predictable crap, but it's just me.

Fraction: Scott is the prime mover of the story. Magneto and Professor X – maybe their time has passed. [...] Hopefully we've moved beyond the need to rehash he same old X-Men stories that have been done. The world of and for the X-Men is markedly different. [...] Things really are different at the end of Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Exodus. [...] But the time for those figures is definitely at an end. It's a different world now, and it needs different leaders.

Greg Land will be the artist of the ark, so you'd better prepare yourself for a lot of deformed body members and beautiful, yet emotionally crippled women. I love Land though, he very often draws such nice faces. Terry Dodoson will be the artist as well, he and Land are going to switch now and then.

Fraction: It spins out of Exodus and Dark Reign: The List directly. It's the direction we've been headed in this whole time. We've never seen the X-Men in a place like this before. It's a whole new world

X-Force: After the War

Here we go again: Marvel interview with great X-Force writer Chris Yost. Some interesting information about Laura's future and the whole X-Force concept. Also - two more covers, X-Force #17 (variant) and X-Force #18. As long as there's going to be a preview of issue 18 I will definitely let you know.

As for why HAMMER has such an active interest in X-23, the result of an attempt to clone Wolverine, Yost explains that this mission has its roots in the organization it replaced.

"It's a holdover from the S.H.I.E.L.D. days," confirms Yost. "In X-23: TARGET X, we saw that Nick Fury himself put Captain America on the job of bringing in X-23. But he let her go, so theoretically S.H.I.E.L.D. was still after her. Agent Ali Morales was the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent that responded to the first Purifier massacre committed by X-Force. She connected the two, and has been after X-23 ever since. Mid-mission, she got a lead from an agent named Young from S.H.I.E.L.D.'s cold case division, Division C. S.H.I.E.L.D./HAMMER wants X-23 because she's an assassin and mass murderer. Nick Fury wanted to use her as a weapon; who knows what Norman Osborne would do with her."

"This one is actually more about X-23's future," Yost relates. "This story puts her on a path."

"Cyclops made a horrible decision, but it had to be made," weighs writer. "He'll take some heat for it, but I think Wolverine knows the bind he was in. Cyclops was weighing three mutant lives over the hope of the entire mutant species. But Wolverine was the one looking the kids in the eyes when they got pulled away."

"Craig and I are planners, so generally we know [how long the sub-plots will run]," confesses Yost. "Issues #17 and #18 wrap up a bunch of pre-Messiah War stuff, and launch the X-23 story and the next big, big arc. Huge stuff coming."

Craig Kyle and Chris Yost talk X-Force future

There is a couple of very interesting quotes from the interview. Laura is mentioned. AWESOME Choi/Oback covers are included, enjoy and lose your breath. To read the rest watch this page. This isn't exactly fresh news, but there is some information about Vanisher, Wolfsbane's comeback, Wolverine/Cyclops conflict and also strange sentence about Elixir, so it's totally worth mentioning. And I REALLY advise everyone to read the last part of the interview, where our geniuses talk about Mike Choi and his suspected mental illness)) It was pretty funny.

Yost: [...] Definitely look for a little Wolverine vs. Cyclops action. I think there will be fallout from Messiah War as we go on. Obviously, the first issue-and-a-half after them coming back is just dealing with what's happening in the moment. But as we move on, with Elixir you're going to feel some effects, with Wolverine and Cyclops you're going to feel some effects. That story's not necessarily over.

IGN Comics: Would you say anyone on the team will be experiencing lasting side-effects from staying in the future longer than they were supposed to? With X-23 basically dragging herself back to where she needed to be, I can't imagine that's very good for her longterm health.

Yost:
X-23 definitely takes the worst of it. She will feel the effects of it. It puts her in a particularly bad situation. And healing factor or no, there's not much she can do about it.
Kyle: And Vanisher still has brain cancer.
Yost: [laughs] Wherever he may be.

IGN Comics: Yeah, I was going to say, he might have escaped, but I can't imagine he'll get too far with the tumor still in his brain.

Yost:
Well, he has one particular destination in mind, and he does make it there. But then things go south for him from there.
Kyle: It's a little ways until you find out where that is, but I think the fans will enjoy it when they see it.
Yost: It speaks to his character.
Kyle: It does. It really does.

IGN Comics: You said Rahne was going to be a part of Necrosha, but will you be picking up her story beforehand in this next arc?

Yost: Absolutely.
Kyle: [...] The next 15 issues are all about payoff. Every issue will deliver answers. Things will continue to get worse. It will all crescendo into the biggest story our characters have stepped foot in since we began the series, including the one they're about to go into with Necrosha. It's just going to get bigger and bigger and bigger, hopefully in all the best ways.

There are three more preview pictures that you can check out here

X-Force, X-Men - Legacy and New Mutants: Necrosha

NECROSHA

"The immortal psychic vampire Selene was old before the rise of civilizations like Ancient Rome and Ancient Egypt, and her current foes, the cast of "X-Force," have no idea just how big her latest villainous scheme is. They'll be the ones to confront Selene's master plan, but once it gets rolling her plot will become so large that it will spill over into the world of two other X-Men titles as well. The first seeds for the storyline were sown by Kyle and Yost in 2007's "New X-Men" #32, an issue which involved Selene and the mutant known as Wither and in "X-Force" #11, where the true identity of Eli Bard was revealed, along with his connection to Selene."

This probably very awesome story will be released in October and will be a crossover between "X-Force", "New Mutants" and "X-Men - Legacy. But the rules of standard crossover won't apply here. The writers promise there to be no need to by every single one of the books I mentioned above. The story is told to be so big, that every book will have it's own independent storyline. There will be a lot of death and suffering. And I really think, and I'm not alone here, that the word "Necrosha" means "Necro" (dead) put into the name "Genosha". Wouldn't everyone like to see millions of dead mutants? Emm, i wouldn't.

So, we see Laura on the cover of "Necrosha", which is great, due to not-so-delighting covers of X-Force 18, 19 and 20, where you either see Laura dying, or being cloned, or both. Let's just hope we get our OWN Laura Kinney back, guys!

The beginning

Hello everybody! Since the first time I got the chance to read "X-23 - Lost Innocence", I knew that Laura Kinney, also known as X-23, will be my most favorite character of all time!
But, to my deepest disappointment, I couldn't find any X-23-related websites on the Internet. It was mostly O-L-D news and junk, and I really would like to read some rumors or interesting news about Laura, I wanted to share what i have with others.
So here I am, creating my own website for exactly this purpose.
Even with Laura Kinney as the main object of discussion on this page, I intent to write reviews and news about different comic books, mostly X-23-related, but not always.
I will appreciate EVERY possible help here, so if you share my intentions, you could write me and join)

A little about me - I am Russian, live in Germany and read American comics. =) So comments in any of these languages are OK. I may have some misspells or stupid mistakes, but do not let this spoil your fun)
