the x-men's direction according to e2c2.

It's been a while since i posted anything new here so here i am, blogging..again. Though i seriously doubt anyone's reading.

I live in a far far away land where it's impossible for me to just go to Chicago and go to the expo personally so i rely mostly on Comic Book Resources for my updates on what's happening. This is no different.

Here are the new news about the X-Men which is arranged from least to most important for me..the site is still being updated as of right now so i don't know if this will be up to date or not. In general, most X-books will start over and go back to #1 around September or October.
X-Men #1 - "Mutants Vs. ________"

X-Factor - "When 'X-Factor' #207 comes out, fans are going to go nuts," he continued. "The last page will get us as much attention, if not more, than since Madrox ate his baby."
The only reason this is here is because i don't get this book. I'll try to grab the Second Coming supplemental reading and we'll see how it goes from there. From what i know they're like the P.I.s of the mutants, right?

New Artists - Whilce Portacio will be the new artist on "Uncanny X-Men" beginning in July, Singh announced. Leonard Kirk will be the new artist on "New Mutants," while Chris Claremont and Milo Manara's "X-Women" one shot will also ship in July and Claremont's "New Mutants Forever" begins in August.
Meh, I don't really have any preferences in terms of artists as long as they make the artwork clear and not Dillon-ish. But then again this is good news since Whilce is a kababayan if i'm correct.

Daken: Dark Wolverine- "Dark Wolverine" will become "Daken: Dark Wolverine" in September, with Liu, Daniel Way, and Giuseppe Camuncoli returning. "The key words are intrigue, violence, exploitation, sex—more of the same." So that means this book will continue even with the end of Dark Reign, huh? Let me just say that I'm very close to dropping this title, nothing really happens here. The entire Seige tie-in didn't really matter that much. I guess, whether or not i drop this will depend on how good the tie-in with Wolverine Origins will be. The writing is good, this book really makes me hate Daken (which is good) but it's just that it seems nothing will be different during the Heroic Age.
drop or contitnue?

We Are The X-Men - Singh said that, following "Second Coming," the X-Men will be much more integrated into the Marvel Universe, which will explain why Spider-Man, She-Hulk and others are in the X-Men promotional images.gambit and elektra?!

Ah, so that explains having Elektra, Spidey, and the Savage She-Hulk in the we are the X-Men, i think it's a welcome addition that they'll be able to freely interact with the others again but PLEASE don't make every single hero an x-man. Though that doesn't explain Blade and vampire Jubilee..

X-Men #1 - "Mutants vs. Vampires" begins in a new "X-Men" #1 by Victor Gischler and Paco Medina.
Jubilee will once again make sparks. Now through her perfectly carved marble hard granite perfect vampire skin.

What the hell? VAMPIRES? are they trying to cash in on Twilight? Maybe get a few new readers? Hopefully they won't make Jubilee sparkle. WAIT!! her powers are sparks, right? Will check this out but i hope they make this good.

X-23 ongoing - X-23 series begins in September, written by Liu with an artist to be named later. "She's basically on a journey of self discovery. It's going to be very dark, intense book, but hopefully along the way there will be a ray of light that she'll be able to find her place in the world," Liu said.

A new X-23 ongoing? hmm, I'll try to get that one. Though the one-shot was a bit too "emo" for me,but i know X-23 is kind of like that. Even slashing her wrists and all that, though i hope this will have a great positive impact on Laura's character. From what i understand from the interview with Marjorie Liu , she'll be away from the X-Men for a while. I hope that she comes back though.

Wolverine - "Wolverine: Weapon X" will be ending, with a new "Wolverine" #1 by Jason Aaron and Renato Guedes, with covers by Jae Lee shipping in September. In it, Wolverine goes to Hell. "His soul goes to hell, andwWe're going to see what happens when he's not around to be in control of his own body," Schaefer said.
Wolverine: Possessed by demon chiken.

I don't know why they have to stop the Wolverine: Weapon X title, they should have just continued it on that one. Then again maybe not being the "main" Wolverine book is hurting the sales a little, either way as long as Aaron's writing the book that means it's going to a good read. I believe he's writes one of the best Wolverine stories right now. First story arc seems to be about Wolverine going to hell, how? I don't really know yet. Let's wait and see when it comes out.

New X-Force - "X-Force" will end after Second Coming, to be relaunched in October with Rick Remender and Jerome OpeƱa. "When Wolverine is put in charge of X-Force, it's a totally different team than Cyclops would put together," Schaefer said. "They're going to be taking on Apocalypse."
new x-force is very stealthy.
Reading the interview with Remeder got me pumped up and excited to get this one. I hope that it'll be as good as the one during Yost's run, it was a short 2 years but it was a great ride. The end also showed some closure too, as Warpath won't be a part of the team since he was able to get his revenge. Wolfsbane wasn't really supposed to be there (and she really wasn't other than the first and last story-arc) and Wolverine telling Cyclops she doesn't want Laura there. I really like that, Wolverine not wanting Laura to do what she was born and trained to do, wanting her to have a better life. Anyway, the team will be new "With the exception of Wolverine this is an almost entirely new team,” Remender remarked. “Only one other has any previous connection to X-Force, but they're all A-list character" Marvel provided us with the same thing they did with Ultimate X and the Avengers things, characters which are censored. My guess is that Psyclocke(extreme left), Fantomex (extreme right) and Archangel(flying).

there you do, hopefully this will be a good year for the X-Men. Nightcrawler was also an untouchable during the panel. I really think he'll go byebye in Second Coming. I can also see Wolverine having this inner monologue about how happy he is that the elf isn't where he is at the start of Wolverine #1.
