X-Position

Mensagem  leonardobento em Qua Out 21 2009, 18:47

O site americano CBR - Comic Book Resources - publica semanalmente uma seção chamada de X-Position, com uma entrevista com roteiristas ou editores dos títulos mutantes.

Publicarei semanalmente a entrevista aqui no Fórum. Quando eu tiver tempo, farei um resumo para aqueles que não leem inglês.

Além disso, publicarei por aqui qualquer outro material adicional, como reportagens sobre os mutantes, retiradas de sites como o CBR e o Newsarama.

O X-Position dessa semana é com a dupla de escritores de X-Force, Kyle & Yost, que comentam o final de sua passagem pelo título - no evento Second Coming, que começa em março -, além das novidades para o arco Necrosha, que terá um one-shot de abertura lançado na próxima semana.

Vamos à entrevista:

Spoiler:




Over the past few months, the members of Marvel Comics' X-Force have traveled the globe to help prevent the mutant species from becoming extinct. They've even taken a jaunt through time to aid a possible mutant Messiah. After all of this, however, readers of the team's adventures have come to see that some events are inevitable; unfortunately, this includes the departure of the (relaunched) title's creators, Craig Kyle and Chris Yost.

As announced here on CBR, the writers will leave "X-Force" at the end of the recently disclosed "Second Coming" storyline. Before anyone panics, though, fans will still be able to enjoy the duo's work on the title for a number of months to come – and those months look to be busy! After concluding the current "Not Forgotten" arc, "Necrosha" and its tie-ins will occupy readers' time for quite awhile. This will be followed by the aforementioned "Second Coming," which will help conclude events kicked off way back in the "Messiah CompleX" event.

Between all these events and the writers' announced departure, readers naturally have questions – lots and lots of questions. Well, in what appears to be our largest X-POSITION yet, Kyle and Yost will attempt to appease and please you all. Let's cross our fingers and see how they fare…

Much of the email we received obviously had to do with the news that you're leaving "X-Force," so let's see if we can do something to "calm the masses." I've cobbled together portions of emails from several readers: Mirage, Evan O'Day, Sami Dawed, OrionRyking, and BloodWitch. Here's what they (and others) want to know:

A lot of the online fan community was disheartened to hear that you guys were leaving "X-Force" after the "Second Coming" event. Why are you going?

KYLE: Chris and I are old school X-fans. "Uncanny" will someday be the goal we achieve, but until then, we're going to keep telling stories as if we've got that title. When we started "X-Force," we had a very specific, massive journey in mind which involved Bastion and his Humanati. Other stories have built along the way – even back to "New X-Men" – that we want to make sure we finish, like "Necrosha."


This journey on "X-Force" had a lifecycle, and it worked out to be about thirty issues, not including (the miniseries) "X-Force: Sex & Violence," which is a side story coming out next year. So we just had a plan in mind from the beginning – we wanted to go out with a bang, put our characters in a situation that was far beyond what they could fight on their own, and deliver a story that we didn't think we could do better. So hopefully we'll end on a high note and leave a good challenge for the next team who comes along to keep the stories going.

YOST: Yeah, the great thing about "X-Force" is that it's so immediate and intense, and there's this pressing extinction coming that, if they don't do something about it, they're all going to die. And this is something you could really expand on for ten years. I mean, there's millions of ways to reinvent a book, but for this particular mission statement, it's not something you want to drag out forever.

Excuse me for jumping in, but does this mean their "mission statement" will be achieved by the end of your run?

KYLE: I will say that the events they have been chasing since the beginning will come to a head. And there will be some resolution, but the team is going to go through many changes before that day even comes. I just think that what everyone has been kind of waiting to see happen will happen – for better or for worse – by the time we get to the last issue of our run.

YOST: Okay, I'm just telling you right now – we're killing Wolverine. It's what we've wanted to do since Day One, so as of issue #28, he's gone.

KYLE: [Chuckling] We should call Jason Aaron (writer of "Wolverine: Weapon X") and let him know.

YOST: That's right! We may be pissing off some of the other writers, but we don't mind stepping on other people's toes.

You better contact Hugh Jackman's agent too. Now, back to the reader questions…

Does this mean the book will end or will it go in a new direction?

YOST: As far as I know, the book is going to continue. What that book will be…well, it could have Power Pack involved…it could have Cable…it could even have Jean Grey – we don't know.

Oh, really…?

YOST: Okay, it's not Jean Grey. Nobody likes her.

Is there any chance you'll be sticking around the X-Universe and write something else? And if so, will you be taking any of the "X-Force" characters with you?

YOST: Wow. These are some excellent questions. Here's the thing: we love to be honest with the fans. We don't like to beat around the bush and make up stuff…unless it's funny. But we're still eight or nine months out, so it's really hard to talk about future plans or endings or anything like that.

KYLE: Yeah, it's a tough thing to say. I mean, we're obviously happy, and we want the book to continue. We never wanted to put almost three years of our lives into "X-Force" just to see it end when we go away. It's been about building a cool title that people didn't have a lot of faith in when we first started, but, just like "New X-Men," people grew to love these characters.

And the X-Office has been very good to us. We've had amazing editors, and Axel has always looked after us. So there's many reasons to want to stick around in the X-World, as well as being fans since we were kids. "Who knows?" is the short answer, but we have many reasons to stick around is the second part of that. And let's not forget about all the fans who have been amazing to us since we started.

Should fans be looking for your works at companies other than Marvel?

YOST: Um, I don't know how to put this, but "Red Robin" is on sale monthly (from DC). I mean, I've got big love for Marvel – obviously – even though I'm working on a DC book right now. And of course, you're going to see Craig's work outside of the X-Men universe.

KYLE: Well, my day job is being a producer on the "Thor" live-action movie. But as far as me doing work and being published anywhere outside of Marvel…no. Not unless I'd like to lose my day job!

It's okay though, because I'm a Marvel boy and I've said it out loud. And it's not as though I don't have wonderful friends like Geoff Johns at DC, but, you know, unlike guys who can jump back and forth between worlds, I'm very comfortable in the world of Marvel. So I'm sticking around. If I'm doing comics, I'm doing Marvel comics.

YOST: And the third bottom line is, we love the X-Office – as Craig has already said – so it's hard for us to say "no." If they come up to us and say, "Hey, do you want to do X-whatever," it's hard for us to refuse that stuff because we love it.

You mentioned the "X-Force: Sex & Violence" title above. Taimur Dar has seen some art, and he's dying to know more. Hey, "Sex" sells, right?

1) Some great new Gabriele Dell'Otto pages for the "X-Force: Sex & Violence" mini were released not too long ago, so I was wondering if you could give us an update on the status of the project?

YOST: The second issue is about halfway done. I wouldn't be surprised if you see it in the solicitations by this spring, but that's just a guess.

KYLE: It's amazing. We've always been spoiled in this business – I don't think we've ever been given an artist who wasn't great, but Gabrielle is like something we've never dealt with. He's extraordinary. Every time we get a painted page, it's more exciting than the last.

YOST: It's like a gift.

KYLE: And again, that's hard to say when you have brilliant talents like the duo of Mike Choi and Sonia Oback, and Clayton Crain coming up for the "Necrosha" arc. Everywhere we turn we're surrounded by geniuses…which allows us to just drag our feet. But this being a very tight, short story, I think it will be wonderful for people because it's just about showcasing what amazing talent Gabe has, keeping the story nice, tight, and fun, and for us, it's probably our most cinematic comic – it feels like a movie.

It's a three act film, and it's real intimate, real fun, and, obviously very sexy and very violent. I think the fans are going to enjoy it, and the way Gabe has translated that story – it's just thrill after thrill. So no matter how long it takes, I assure you no one wants it on the shelves more than Chris and I. It's going to be worth the wait.

YOST: Not to toot our own horn, but we had a great time writing it, and we like to think people will have a good time reading it. Gabrielle Dell'Otto is known for his beautiful images, but he's drawn some really funny stuff with this one too. I mean, there are some facial expressions in there that are just laugh-out-loud funny. It's going to be a good time.

Has it been announced how many issues this mini is?

KYLE: Well if it hasn't, I'll tell you – it's three.

2) And here's a non-"X-Men" question for Chris: I can't wait until the new "Avengers" animated series airs, especially since I heard Brian Reed wrote an episode. Are there any other comic creators involved in the show that you can reveal?

YOST: I think it's just me and Brian right now.

Is there a premiere date yet?

KYLE: No. I don't think there has been a release date discussed yet.

BloodWitch wrote in next with our first "X-Force" query:

Will we see some resolution to Archangel's mental situation before you leave?

YOST: You're going to see his personality continue to go in a very extreme direction in "Necrosha," where he's in some pretty bloody situations. I really don't see him getting better.

KYLE: I think that's an ongoing struggle for him, and we will continue to touch on that…

YOST: …and make it worse!

KYLE: Yeah. I don't know if we're going to see him coming out of a shrink's office a better man. That's one of the stories that more of an ongoing than a "we can tackle that in ‘X' amount of issues."

X Necrosha "X Necrosha" one shot, on sale October 28

YOST: Yeah. We're not here to help you people… [laughs]

How about helping Hunter Lambright? He wants to know all about the upcoming event you've got planned…

1) What are the chances of any of the "living dead" staying in the land of the living once "Necrosha" dies down?

KYLE: I think the bigger concern is how many of the living are going to stay a part of that world and not go to the land of the dead, because we're not screwing around with this crossover. Is the potential there for those that were lost to return and stay? Maybe, but it really is the threat that's posed to those that are still alive and have never been dead.

YOST: Yeah, I think you're going to need two things here: a dead pool, and a live pool.

2) There seems to have been a delay or two in the title recently, with "X-Force" #20 pushed to the end of the month. Was this done to coincide with the "Necrosha" one-shot and the "New Mutants" tie-in? Or was it simply a standard delay?

KYLE: We've had a pretty amazing run of never missing our release dates, but, you know, every once in awhile there's just a slowdown because we've all got a lot on our plates. It's really no one's fault, and we don't want to be pointing any fingers – especially not in our own direction – but going nineteen issues before having that problem is something to be pretty proud of. The guys who oversee us in the X-Office do a good job of managing everybody. If you want the books to come in looking great, sometimes it takes the extra time, and that was just one issue where that was the case.

YOST: The other thing is – the "Not Forgotten" arc? It's been packed. I mean, coming out of "Messiah War," we wrapped up one storyline, we jumped into another one, we had Rahne and the Frost Giants, plus "Necrosha" set-up to include – there's a lot going on in all of these issues. And the X-23 storyline is the focus of issue #20 which is coming up and it's great – it's gorgeous. And the other thing is, now you don't have to wait any time at all to go into "Necrosha."

KYLE: That's the real plus – you go right from a Mike Choi/Sonia Oback issue right into the big beginning of the crossover, which is a Clayton Crain issue, so we're kinda stoked. And the fact that everything is going to drop now on the week of Halloween is pretty sweet, so think of it as a Halloween treat!

YOST: Yeah, "Necrosha" – spooooky…

That will be a treat! And now, Chrisss Topher is "dying" to hear more about Selene's tricks:

In "Necrosha," how will Selene keep Bastion from getting involved and ruining her plans? I mean, she is using a portion of the tech that he developed to reanimate the dead. How will Selene keep Bastion at bay?

YOST: I would say Bastion is very aware of what's going on with Selene and takes note of it immediately…and Selene could give two craps about Bastion. She is basically, at this point, an unstoppable force. By the time anyone notices anything is wrong, it's going to be too late. And she's pretty confident at this point because she's seen the future.

KYLE: That's right. And Bastion is a machine – he has a very set plan he's been plotting since our very first issue, although he most likely will be forced to accelerate that plan. He's not going to jeopardize his endgame by acting before he believes that he can actually succeed in wiping out mutantkind. There's definitely a timing issue here as well.

Caleb Warren is curious about the details of Selene's powers. How about a clue?

Do the people Selene resurrects have an automatic loyalty to her?

YOST: I wouldn't call it automatic.

KYLE: No. More like a "forced will" is a better way to look at it.

YOST: The "New Mutants" story in the one-shot really deals with this in a gorgeous way, and you'll see it in the "X-Force" lead-up issue too. It is not people coming out of the grave saying, "We love Selene."

KYLE: They're also not saying "Braaains." They are here as themselves. They are as confused and terrified about their own situations as anyone who's seen them for the first time back from the dead. I think people will enjoy it because we didn't want to bring back a bunch of mindless undead machines – it's a very different scenario we see in there.

YOST: Yeah, they're not like decomposed weird "things." I mean, they are the characters that you know and love with the personalities that you remember. They're just in this particular situation that's kind of out of their control.

Zachary Simon doesn't want to call these characters "things" either – he wants names! Do you have a few to spare?

In "Necrosha," do you have any plans to bring back people like Banshee, Mariko Yashida, Sabretooth, Omega Red, and/or Peepers? Banshee would cause a major impact in the lives of the X-Men and Syrin over in "X-Factor," Mariko Yashida and Sabretooth would give Wolverine some major drama, and the last two are just plain cool. Thoughts?

KYLE: Dammit. Peepers – why didn't we think about that?

YOST: It's the lynchpin to the whole plan.

KYLE: Why don't we answer a few of those, Chris?

YOST: Well, Banshee is on a solicitation cover that was released this week.

KYLE: Thunderbird has been established as being resurrected, and…who else can we talk about?

YOST: Destiny, Cypher, Caliban, and the Hellions are back.

KYLE: I just think that within the first two issues of "Necrosha," people are going to be seeing a flood of people being brought back, from the most obscure – maybe not Peepers obscure – to the coolest. Do you want to answer the Sabretooth question?

YOST: You go ahead.

KYLE: No, we're not. We touched on him when the clones were used in Sinister's lab several storylines back when Domino joined the team, so we kinda felt like "been there, done that," and we try not to repeat ourselves in an arc.

YOST: And the other thing is, Selene's not dumb. There are mutants out there that are really powerful, and bringing them back would be dangerous. Sabretooth's not necessarily one of them, but there are mutant out there that she would say "no" to…like Peepers.

Okay, Peepers' mutant power seems to be the ability to derail a Q&A. Let's move on to the event that follows "Necrosha" – "Second Coming." I received several emails on this subject, but all the questions essentially read like the following letter from Neostorm:

I have questions about the upcoming "Second Coming" X-Over. I am an avid X-Men fan and I love where each series has been going lately, but with the "Second Coming," will it finally be revealed who Hope is?

I remember that at the end of "Messiah CompleX" (in "X-Men" #207) – right before Cyclops gave Hope to Cable – Hope grabbed the locket around Scott's neck that had a picture of him and Jean Grey in it. So I've always suspected that Hope was part of Jean (not just because Hope resembles Jean and Rachel) and Scott in some way. Could Hope possibly be Scott and Jean's daughter? I think it would be very entertaining if this was true because of the implications it could (and would) have on Scott and Emma.

YOST: "Second Coming" is going to answer the question regarding what/who is Hope.

KYLE: I think that's the good answer, and I think beyond that, we can't say anymore.

YOST: But some woman in Alaska did give birth to her. Was it Jean? Was Jean resurrected, shipped to Alaska, impregnated by Scott…

KYLE: [Laughs] …and then killed.

YOST: …and then killed only to be resurrected in her own baby who then grabbed Scott's locket? Hey, I think this is working for me.

KYLE: That could be a theory. We're just putting it out there. SPOILERS!

And it wouldn't be the weirdest X-story ever told.

KYLE: That's true, and we'd be proud to have it…if that is the story.

YOST: Oh, and she's going to be raised by Rachel!

Chris L. gets the privilege of closing out today's craziness. He sent in a query specifically for Yost regarding the upcoming "Psylocke" miniseries he's writing:

Psylocke is a character that most just see as a sexy ninja. With her new miniseries coming on, will we get the opportunity to finally go deeper than this and understand her motivations, dreams, and fears? She's also been changed and transformed so many times since her creation that I wonder – is there anything left in Psylocke from that little blonde British girl who first appeared in "Captain Britain"? Is there any way to unify these different incarnations of the character and make it a whole?

YOST: It's funny, because we do see that "little blonde British girl" a few times in this series. This series is really about this character reflecting on her life and just the flat-out insanity of it, and what that does to a person. Like, what does being involved with the X-Men, and all the death and all the resurrection, and being blinded, and having your brother from an alternate dimension try to hurt you in horrible ways, do to a person? How do you not snap? This is a sad story. It's basically like Matsu'o taking a match and throwing it onto the powder keg that is her life. It's a very touchy-feely book.

Thanks fellas! But before you go, we have a small bit o' fun for you. Last week, I offered up a challenge to X-POSITION readers. As certain duos become known for working together, they are often given a nickname that's an amalgamation of their names.

There's Bennifer (but we won't got there); Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (DnA)…you get the idea. So I asked fans for their thoughts. I didn't get too many, but Bloodwitch sent in a bunch. Let's start with her! She offered up Kost, Yle, Yoyle…

KYLE: That sounds Jewish. My wife will love that one.

...Yole, KyYo…

KYLE: That sounds like my name with a weird accent on it.

...and she sent in K-Y, but so did several others. OrionRyking, however, actually cared enough to send in a slogan for this moniker: "When it comes to comics, it just feels better when you've got K-Y involved…"

[Kyle and Yost burst out laughing.]

KYLE: We've got a winner! Tell OrionRyking to submit their address to me in a PM (on the CBR forums) and I'll send them some free comics.


Na próxima semana, a entrevista será com Marjorie Liu e Daniel Wy, responsáveis pelos roteiros de Dark Wolverine, Wolverine Origins e Deadpool.

Assim que eu tiver tempo, resumo a entrevista acima.

X-Men Legacy - Mike Carey

Mensagem  leonardobento em Qua Out 21 2009, 18:55

Abaixo uma reportagem recente sobre os rumos da série X-Men Legacy:

Spoiler:




The past several years have been tumultuous ones for the Marvel Universe's mutant population. Their ranks have been depleted while their enemies seem to grow stronger in power. Some mutants have been crushed by these changes, while others have risen to meet the challenges of their new environment. One mutant who's making the most of her current status quo is Rogue, who recently gained control over her mutant ability to absorb powers and memories, and can now touch others without harming them. She was also recently given new purpose when Cyclops tasked her with making sure the younger generation of X-Men are prepared to meet all the challenges that await them.

Rogue's exploits in her new role are currently being chronicled by writer Mike Carey in the pages of "X-Men: Legacy." CBR News spoke with Carey about his plans for Rogue, which include pitting her against a villain who's a dark reflection of herself, reuniting her with a loved one, and fighting to end a powerful threat that arises thanks to the events of the "Necrosha" storyline.

In "X-Men: Legacy Annual" #1 Rogue was tasked with a new mission from Cyclops, and the position really seems to suit her. In the issue, she counseled the young mutant Indra on reconciling the contradictions between his responsibilities as an X-Men and his religious beliefs. "I think to some extent she really takes to her new role because what Cyclops says to her is true. She is the patron saint of 'been there,'" Carey told CBR News. "She knows what it's like to be young and vulnerable and have a power that makes you into a pariah. She's been traumatized and she's been victimized in every respect. She can empathize with what some of the younger X-Men are going through. That's part of what she brings to the job.

"Also, in terms of personality, she's always been one of the most emotionally available and open-hearted X-Men," Carey continued. "She has this warm quality about her, and I think that's a great personality trait to have when you work with children or young people."

In "X-Men: Legacy Annual" #1 Carey kicked off a four part storyline that could be thought of as "X-Men" meets "Silence of the Lambs," since it pits Rogue against the violent and hungry mutant villain known as Emplate. In the "Annual," Emplate attacked the X-Men on their new island home of Utopia. Things got personal though for Rogue at the end when Emplate abducted one of her new charges, the young mutant known as Bling.

"We wanted to bring Emplate back because we needed a creepy villain to pop in on Utopia, and he hadn't been used for a long while. For my money, he was the most interesting villain of the 'Generation X' days. He ended up having this convoluted origin, which tied into the very complicated story of the St. Croix family. We refer to it a little bit in this arc, but we didn't want to stray too far into complicated continuity issues. So we're mainly extrapolating on the fact that Emplate has to feed on mutants to survive. He's effectively a vampire who feeds through these mouths in the palm of his hands, and he's been starving to death since the Decimation [the event that robbed most of the world's mutant population of their abilities] because there haven't been any new mutants to feed on. He's looking for someone he can use as long term food stock, and he settles on Bling."

Pages from "X-Men: Legacy" #228

One of the reasons Carey wanted to pit Rogue against Emplate is because the characters are dark reflections of each other. Rogue gains powers and memories by touching others and a side effect of her powers used to be that she would rip the conscious mind out of whoever she touched, effectively "eating" their personality. This caused Rogue all sorts of emotional pain and grief. Emplate on the other hand, gains powers by physically eating the marrow of other mutants, and he does so unrepentantly.

"There is a scene in 'Legacy' #230 where they touch," Carey revealed. "Emplate is feeding on Rogue, and there's this very scary short circuit in their powers, where each of them, to some extent, is feeding off the other. You could definitely see Emplate as 'There but for the grace of God,' as far as Rogue is concerned.

"The other interesting thing about Emplate is that he's no longer attached to our dimension. He has a home, which is part fortress and part prison," Carey continued. "It's this pocket dimension where he lives after being exiled there by his sisters. So his greatest power is also his greatest weakness. He can't stay on our dimensional plane. He gets pulled back to this other dimension. That means it's really hard to fight him, because at any moment, he could make himself insubstantial, pull himself away from this reality so nothing can hurt him."


In the Annual's main story, Carey reintroduced X-Men readers to Emplate, but in the back-up story, he revived another plot element from X-Men lore; the fact that Rogue's on-again, off-again boyfriend, Gambit, had once been turned into Death, one of the servants of the mutant villain known as Apocalypse. In the back-up story, it appeared that that aspect of Gambit's personality had just been laying dormant, and a telepathic attack brought it out. Gambit was able to bring the Death aspect of his personality back under control by the story's end, but it appears to be only a matter of time before it returns once more.

"My main reason for putting that plot thread back into play was because, when I reintroduced Gambit en route to 'Messiah Complex,' I allowed him to sort of sweep the Death persona under the table. He says, 'I got by with a little help from my friends.' So we all know Mister Sinister did something; put some kind of blocks in which suppress the Death powers and personality," Carey explained. "We also know that Apocalypse used Celestial technology to transform Gambit into Death, and that technology is not easy to get out of you once it's been implanted. So it's something that needed to be addressed, or else we needed to pretend it never happened, and it was too important to say it never happened."

Pages from "X-Men: Legacy" #228

Carey sees Gambit as an integral part of the supporting cast of "X-Men: Legacy," and the storyline about his Death persona will move forward in the series, just not right away. "'Legacy' #228 is in stores this week, and is part two of the four part Emplate arc. Gambit does appear, but he's part of stuff happening in the background," Carey revealed. "The story mainly focuses on Rogue and Bling. We won't fully check in with Gambit again until around issue #233 or #234."

Bling may be a lesser known X-Men character, but Carey has found her to be quite compelling. "She has this strange life and backstory, which has seldom been touched on," the writer remarked. "So little of it has been seen or discussed openly. That makes her a really interesting character to revisit and sketch in a little more."

The presence of another supporting character, Emplate's sidekick D.O.A., is meant to inject the arc with elements of dark humor. "You can't play D.O.A. straight, so there is a little strain of dark comedy running through the story, just because he's there," Carey explained. "For the most part, though, it's sort of creepy and darkly atmospheric. After the Annual, all the other parts of the story take place in Emplate's dimension. You find out a lot more about his home and the other aspects of where he lives, as well as the other entities he shares that dimension with. It's a nasty place."

The Emplate arc wraps in November, and in December's issue #231, the "Necrosha" storyline hits "X-Men: Legacy." Carey's portion of the storyline, which runs through "X-Force," "New Mutants" and "Legacy," will remind some readers of his work on the adjectiveless "X-Men" series. "It becomes a team book again, for a little while, and what a team! We've got some of the X-Men's heaviest hitters coming together; some really powerful characters," Carey said. "The threat they're facing is appallingly powerful as well, though, so they'll need every single iota of that shared strength and experience to survive it."

The situation in "X-Men: Legacy" arises as an unintended consequence of the main "Necrosha" storyline, which will be chronicled in "X-Force." "What we're dealing with in 'Legacy' is part of the fallout from 'Necrosha.' The main threat is being dealt with in 'X-Force,' but something happens on Muir Island, which has the potential to be catastrophic in its own right. So the X-Men have to divide their forces, while at the same time they defend Utopia against this truly appalling threat."

Rogue's journey to Muir Island will bring her face to face with someone she never expected to see again, her deceased foster mother Irene Adler, AKA Destiny. "Rogue's relationship with her other foster mother, Mystique, is complicated, but I think she feels nothing but love, loyalty, and gratitude towards Destiny. There are a couple of poignant moments when they meet up again," Carey stated. "That positive parental relationship was part of the appeal of bringing her back, but the main reason she's brought back is plot driven. You'll see why she's brought back in 'Necrosha,' and then you'll see the consequences play out in 'Legacy.'"

"Necrosha" runs through "X-Men: Legacy" #232

Destiny won't be the only X-character returning to the fold during the "Legacy" issues of "Necrosha." "There are two other very important returning characters in the story, besides Destiny," Carey revealed. "One character will actually be on the team and is an important returning character who we haven't seen in awhile. The other is the villain, a character the X-Men have fought before, but weren't expecting to have to fight again."

For the Emplate and "Necrosha" storylines, Carey is working with two different artists, each with their own style, Daniel Acuna and Clay Mann. "Acuna is the perfect match for the Emplate story. I've seen his pages from issue #228, and they are both beautiful and terrifying. He really captures and creates a strong sense of this insane place where Emplate lives, and the insane and scary rules by which it operates," Carey remarked. "Clay Mann does gorgeous character work on the 'Necrosha' tie-in story. His Blindfold is heartrendingly beautiful; so vulnerable and convincing. Acuna has a certain heightened stylized approach, whereas Mann has very detailed and realistic style. I think they're each perfect matches for the stories that they're doing."

Both the Emplate and the Necrosha storylines are firmly rooted in current X-Men continuity, a trend that will continue next year, because after "Necrosha" wraps up, "X-Men: Legacy" will be involved in the recently announced "Second Coming" crossover which runs through four X-titles and brings the "Messiah Trilogy" to a close. "We've come back into current X-Men continuity at a very exciting time," Carey said. "The X-Men are going through some major changes. The stakes are very high for everybody, and the world in which the surviving mutants live is changing radically. Rogue becomes part of all these events, and it's kind of cool to be expanding on them in this series."

X-Men: Second Coming

Mensagem  leonardobento em Qui Out 22 2009, 17:55

Segue matéria publicada no dia 12/10 no CBR sobre Second Coming:

Spoiler:


In January, 2006, it looked like the Marvel Universe's mutant population was headed towards a grim fate. Thanks to the reality warping powers of the Scarlet Witch, scores of mutants lost their powers. Suddenly there were less than 200 known mutants worldwide, and no new mutants were being born.

Then, just as things were looking their darkest, a new mutant baby was born. In the 2007 crossover "Messiah CompleX," the X-Men fought a battle against the combined forces of their enemies, the Marauders and the Acolytes, for custody of the child, whom many viewed as a mutant messiah. The X-Men prevailed, but the child's safety was not yet assured. The X-Man, Bishop, believed that the child would grow up to be mutantkind's downfall instead of its salvation, and that, if he killed the mutant baby, the nightmarish future world where he was born would never come to exist.

Cyclops gave custody of the mutant baby girl, who would come to be called Hope, to his son Cable in order to save her. Cable used a time machine to escape into the future, where he and the girl would be relentlessly hounded by Bishop who had his own time machine. In the 2009 crossover, "Messiah War," Cyclops sent X-Force to the future in order to retrieve Cable and Hope, where they discovered that Hope had grown into a young girl. Together, they battled the forces of Cable's old foe Stryfe and Bishop, and in the end, Cable and Hope chose to keep running further into the future.

You can't run forever, though, and in March of 2010, Cable and Hope return to the present. Kicking off the final chapter in the Messiah Trilogy, "X-Men: Second Coming" was announced today at the Diamond Retailer Summit. It's a multi-part crossover that begins in the "X-Men: Second Coming"one-shot, then runs through issues of "Uncanny X-Men," "X-Men: Legacy," "X-Force" and "New Mutants," before ending in June with another one-shot. CBR News spoke with writers Craig Kyle, Chris Yost, Matt Fraction, Mike Carey, and Zeb Wells and editor Nick Lowe about the crossover.

Kyle and Yost wrote the "New X-Men" installments of "Messiah CompleX," the "X-Force" chapters of "Messiah War," and are enjoying the opportunity to help finish the Messiah Trilogy as the writers of the "Second Coming" one-shot and "X-Force." "I think you'll finally see some answers to questions that were posed way back in Messiah CompleX," Chris Yost told CBR. "Who, and what, is Hope? What does her return mean to the X-Men?"

Craig Kyle added. "Like a lot of fans, I’ve been anxious to finish the journey and see what it all means. This has been one of the longer sagas in X-Men history, and I think people are expecting a lot. They've invested a lot of time, money, and energy into these characters and this story. Like them, I'm expecting a big result at the end, and I think readers are going to get it."

Mike Carey wrote the "X-Men" chapters of "Messiah CompleX" and found that coming back to help finish the Messiah Trilogy in "X-Men: Legacy" has been very satisfying. "We've known that we would end up here since the time we were finishing 'Messiah CompleX,'" Carey said. "There's a lot of things going on here. You could say, we've been building to this story ever since 'House of M,' and you'll see some resolution to these big plot threads."

"Uncanny X-Men" writer Matt Fraction and "New Mutants" writer Zeb Wells did not work on the previous two chapters of the Messiah Trilogy, but are excited to be involved in bringing the epic tale to a close. "It would be intimidating, but the team Executive Editor Axel Alonso assembled to break the story was so strong. It was the first time in my life I was the least talented person in the room. At least that's how I choose to understand the terrible things Axel said to me," Wells joked.

Another reason the five X-Books writers are excited about "Second Coming" is that it gives them the chance to write both Cable and Hope, who regularly appear in the current "Cable" series, written by Duane Swierczynski. "I can't wait to see how Cable interacts with his old subordinates in the New Mutants and X-Force," Zeb Wells said. "I like the fact that Hope is a messiah who isn't quite positive what that even means. And I love what she brings out of Cable's character. He's a teacher/father around her."

Matt Fraction is especially keen to explore the dynamic between Cyclops, Cable and Hope. "You've got three generations, there, who are all a little screwed up. I think the stuff that Duane has been doing in 'Cable' is fantastic, and in 'Second Coming,' you get to see what Hope is like when she's back in her own time, where she's seen by some as the savior of her species," Fraction stated. "There's all these great expectations of her. Even though she's so young, she's lived this insane life and has sort of become this teenage guerilla fighter. She's been to some places that are fascinating to me."

Fans of writer Mike Carey's run on "X-Men" already know that he's got an affinity for Cable and feels that the character's adventures in his current solo series have made him even more intriguing. "Cable took on this bigger parental-style responsibility years ago when he founded the first incarnation of X-Force, and you see him doing that again in relation to Hope. It's brought out different aspects in his nature, and their relationship has changed as she's grown up," Carey said. "They've been through some bittersweet moments, and I'm looking forward to exploring their relationship.

"And Hope is still a big mystery," Carey continued. "She's been hailed as the Mutant Messiah, but we know from Bishop's reaction to her that she has the alleged potential to be something else as well. And we still don't have a clear idea of what her mutant power is or how it works. So what is the potential that's buried in her? And how will it change the status quo when she comes back to present time?"


Craig Kyle and Chris Yost wrote Cable and Hope in the "X-Force" installments of "Messiah War," but feel that both characters have changed in interesting ways since that story, especially Hope. "I don't know if you saw the solicitation image from an upcoming 'Cable' issue, but Hope has definitely grown and become her own person. When most of the X-Men last saw her she was a baby, and when X-Force saw her in 'Messiah War,' she was like eight years old. When she comes back in 'Second Coming,' she's basically in her late teens, so it's going to be interesting to see what her personality has become," Chris Yost said. "You've also got to wonder, what kind of life has Cable given her? How has being on the run in a post apocalyptic future world affected her? Is that the best childhood they could have given the Mutant Messiah? Or did that make her more like the person Bishop has become?"

There's been no announcement yet regarding the art for the individual chapters of "Second Coming," but Marvel is talking about one of the big named artists involved. "David Finch is drawing the 'Second Coming' one-shot!" Nick Lowe revealed. "That may be the biggest news of all!"

In the "X-Men: Second Coming" one-shot, Cable and Hope's sudden return to the present forces the villainous Bastion, who's machinations have been plaguing X-Force, to put the final stage of his master plan into action."You're going to see in 'Necrosha' [the crossover involving "X-Force," "X-Men: Legacy," and "New Mutants" which begins later this month] that Bastion doesn't go away. He's aware of things. You'll see his reaction to the events in 'Necrosha,' but Hope's return is the explosion that means things have to happen now," Kyle revealed. "What Bastion knows about, now, and what he must do, is always in flux. The actions of Selene in 'Necrosha' and the arrival of Hope are two things he can't plan for. So this is going to push everything to a head. That also speaks to why our team is going to have no time to rest in between the two biggest fights of their lives."

Yost added, "X-Force has always been the team that hasn't gotten a lot of down time. They're always going from one mission to the next. In this case, the entire mutant species is on edge coming off things like the recent 'Utopia' crossover, the upcoming 'Nation X' storyline, and 'Necrosha.' Everything seems to be escalating, and this what it's escalating to."

In "X-Force" #1, Kyle and Yost resurrected Bastion, so "Second Coming" is a storyline that provides pay offs for many of the plot elements they've been building to in the series. "Early on in our 'X-Force' run, we knew that there were certain fights that the team was going to be able to handle by themselves, often by the skin of their teeth. Bastion, though, is pulling all these strings together to create this ultimate threat to the X-Men. So there was no way to bring that arc to a close in our book," Craig Kyle explained. "Fortunately for us, the Messiah storyline and the Bastion arc lined up perfectly. So it was a marriage of events that everyone was supportive of. The last thing you want to do is bring something to an event and go, 'Everybody get out of our way and let us do this and take over your titles,' but everyone really decided to get behind this, which was great."

Yost added, "'X-Force' has had two major storylines running through the series: Bastion and Selene. And, of course, Selene's storyline is going to explode into 'Necrosha,' so the question became, how do we make Bastion look even bigger? It just so happened that our discussions about that lined up with 'Second Coming.' So we were very pleased with the way things turned out."

Another ongoing plot element of "X-Force" has been their clandestine nature. Cyclops has kept the team's existence from the other X-Men because the bloody nature of the missions that he sends them on. However, the events of "Second Coming" will make it extremely difficult to hide the true nature of X-Force from their fellow mutant comrades. "Secrets can't trump the importance of saving lives, especially since everything as far as Cyclops is concerned hinges on Hope and what she means for the future of mutantkind," Kyle remarked. "So I think that's an issue that will absolutely be dealt with when it comes to the final chapter of this saga."

Part of the reason "X-Force" will have a tough time concealing their nature is the fact that "Second Coming" is structured very much like "Messiah CompleX." Each chapter of the story flows into the next one, and each writer will be playing with their normal cast of characters as well as ones who don't usually appear in their book. Working with a larger cast can be difficult, but it's something that's become old hat for Matt Fraction. "Thank god I've got another giant ensemble piece coming out of the X-Men/Dark Avengers crossover," the writer joked. "One of the big things we've set up with 'Uncanny X-Men,' though, is that it's the book where everybody shows up. Each issue already kind of deals with mutantkind as a whole. So you'll see characters from all over appearing all over the place."

Fraction sees the "Second Coming" storyline as a mixture of both intimate and explosive moments. "Everything is building to this incredible crescendo. In between these smaller moments of Hope and Cable on the run, you've got bigger moments like Scott's ability to tap into his inner leader being predicated on the fact that Hope is out there. His faith has been rewarded in that Cable has done his job and Hope is back, but these bad guys have been lying in wait," Fraction revealed. "So each issue has a few quiet moments as well as some incredible action set pieces as Bastion's vast plan comes to fruition."

Bastion has proved to be a very compelling character for Fraction. "I think anybody that can create a new spin on the, 'I'm coming to kill the X-Men story' is very interesting," the writer remarked. "Bastion is a big character with big plans, and we've got the special effects budget to capture those plans."

Like the members of X-Force, the cast of "New Mutants" will be coming into "Second Coming" almost immediately after their adventures in "Necrosha." They might be better prepared to handle things, however. "The New Mutants will be ready," Zeb Wells hinted. "And after 'Necrosha,' they'll have a few more members to go into battle with."

Indeed, there will be plenty of battles for the New Mutants to become embroiled in during "Second Coming." "I think they've become a team that Cyclops won't be afraid to use like any other team of X-Men," Wells remarked. "Which is to say, Cyclops is going to use them to kick ass."

Wells feels that Bastion is the perfect foil for both the New Mutants and the entire cast of "Second Coming." "Like my editor Nick Lowe, he despises all mutants," the writer joked. "With their population on the ropes, Bastion will not take kindly to someone showing up who may or may not hold the key to a mutant renaissance."

"X-Men: Legacy" currently stars longtime fan favorite, Rogue, following her in her new role of preparing the younger generation of X-Men for what's to come. During "Necrosha," Rogue will fight side by side with other X-Men, and other mutants will continue to play roles in the series during "Second Coming." Rogue fans can also expect the character to play a pivotal part in "Second Coming." "You'll definitely see a number of very significant moments between Rogue and Hope," Mike Carey hinted. "Not because Hope is a younger mutant and is part of Rogue's new duties. It's more that there's unexpected contact between them that becomes very important."

Pitting Rogue against the forces of Bastion is especially exciting to Carey due to the fact that the anti-mutant crusader is a big and iconic X-Villain that he hasn't previously had a chance to write. "I think Bastion is fascinating in a paradoxical sort of way," Carey remarked. "He's someone who has cauterized his own humanity in defending what he sees as humanity's best interests. He's a very cool monster."

"X-Men: Second Coming" begins in Spring of 2010, but that should give readers plenty of time to prepare and say goodbye to the current status quos of many of the books in the X-line. "You'll see new books being born and existing books being redefined," Mike Carey said. "As with 'Messiah CompleX,' I hope it will feel like the natural playing out of elements we've been building for a long time. You'll suddenly see the relevance of a whole lot of stuff."

Matt Fraction added, "And we're not changing things because it's another crossover and it's time to throw everything overboard. This is the thing we've been building to for years. It's the third act in a story that started years ago. So, it's incredibly satisfying to finally pay this stuff off."

For Craig Kyle and Chris Yost, "X-Men: Second Coming" is doubly satisfying because not only is it the final chapter of the Messiah Trilogy, it's also the final chapter in their run on "X-Force." "Chris and I have had a plan from the beginning of what we wanted to do with this team. We knew what the last page of our last issue on the title looked like," Craig Kyle said. "This is going to close a chapter for us, and like our run on 'New X-Men,' it's exciting because we planned for it and knew it was coming. We've been talking with everybody for about a year and a half now about how we wanted to go out, and it's going to be in a blaze of glory.

"'Necrosha' kind of gives us a chance for our team to do a big fight on their own. Mike Carey and Zeb Wells have come up with great stories to connect to 'Necrosha,' but those are spillover stories. X-Force is tackling the main threat on their own," Kyle continued. "'Second Coming' is a chance for them to jump back into the larger X-Men universe and fight side by side with their friends in a larger finale. We get two endings for our team, which is the best scenario possible."

Resumindo o X-Position de Kyle&Yost:

- Os autores deixarão X-Force ao final de Second Coming, em junho, considerando já terem terminado seu ciclo na revista, com cerca de 30 edições, fora os especiais e a mini Sex&Violence, que será lançada no ano que vem (ainda sem previsão - Gabrielle Dell'Otto atualmente está desenhando a segunda edição, num total de três);
- Eles almejam um dia poder escrever Uncanny X-Men, mas por enquanto não sabem se continuarão fazendo alguma coisa relacionada aos mutantes;
- Pelo que eles sabem, o título seguirá depois, mesmo com a saída deles;
- As definições na personalidade do Arcanjo continuarão a evoluir durante Necrosha;
- Perguntados se, dentre os mortos que voltam em Necrosha, quais ficarão, eles respondem que é mais importante se preocupar com se os vivos sobreviverão a essa ameaça;
- Os ressuscitados por Selene estão sendo forçados a demonstrar lealdade a ela;
- Entre os que voltam nessa saga estão Sina, Cifra, Caliban, os Satânicos, Banshee e Pássaro Trovejante. O Dentes-de-Sabre não volta;
- Second Coming responderá a questão de quem é a Hope;
- Eles ainda comentam outros projetos pessoais, além da mini Psylocke, que o Yost escreve, que mostrará Betsy tentando lidar com toda a questão de morte e ressurreição, além de tentar reconstruir sua própria pessoa.

Cup O'Joe

Mensagem  leonardobento em Sab Out 24 2009, 10:03

Joe Quesada, editor-chefe da Marvel tem uma coluna semanal no CBR. Na coluna publicada hoje, temos algumas perguntas relacionadas a Second Coming.

Spoiler:


Kiel Phegley: The final big Marvel U news out of last week's string of announcements was the future of the X-Franchise, with the upcoming "Girl Named Hope" serial followed by the "Second Coming" event. The feeling folks have been getting from this is that the storyline will wrap some long-running plot threads about the endangered aspects of mutants in the same way "Siege" will wrap a lot of the stuff set in place stretching back to "Avengers Disassembled" and "Civil War." If that's the case, will the X-Universe gain any familiar elements in the wake of the stories? What are the chances we'll be seeing some honest to goodness new mutant characters having their powers activated in 2010?

Joe Quesada:
The correct question might be, “Will there be any mutants left after “Second Coming?" Hope's return to the present will have a cataclysmic effect on the mutant population. She is the future for mutants, but what that future is, well, you'll have to stay tuned to find out. Something big will be waiting for her – something that has been patiently biding its time, ready to snap shut a trap that we can confidently say is the biggest the X-Men have ever faced. Not everyone will make it out alive this time.

Kiel Phegley: With that answer, I'm not sure what to expect on this next one, but many retailers were assuming with the "Second Coming" would hold the return of Jean Grey? Are the teases pointing folks in that direction a red herring, or would you be willing to put Jean back in the mix if the story was right?

Joe Quesada: C'mon, you don't honestly want me to answer that question, do you? And spoil the fun of learning? Let's just say that Hope's got red hair and green eyes and leave it at that.

Kiel Phegley: One concrete thing we can ask about is the status of Craig Kyle and Chris Yost's "X-Force." It appears that the pair will be leaving the book after "Second Coming." Does that mean "X-Force" will end as a series as well? If not, who might be brought on to continue with that team? If yes, what other X-Titles may be leaving us in the next year?

Joe Quesada: "X-Force" is alive and well, and Craig Kyle and Chris Yost are as ensconced in the X-Men Universe as they've ever been, maybe more. Their story comes to an end after “Second Coming" but X-Force doesn't die. Will other creators have to step into Craig and Chris's shoes? Yes. Might we shake up the character roster after “Second Coming?" We might have to. I mean you can't field a team with dead characters can you?


Joe pontua que o retorno de Hope ao presente da realidade principal da Marvel trará consequencias bombásticas. Qual será o papel da Messias mutante? E será que ainda existirão mutantes depois de seu retorno? Será o principal evento pelos quais os X-Men passarão em sua história e nem todos os envolvidos permanecerão vivos.
Ficaremos sabendo também quem é Hope e qual sua relação com Jean Grey (se houver). Não se esqueçam: ela tem cabelos ruivos e olhos verdes...
Quanto ao final da passagem de Kyle&Yost por X-Force (conforme comentado acima), isso não significa que a revista acabará. A equipe deve ser alterada, afinal... nem todos sobreviverão ao final de Second Coming.

Second Coming

Mensagem  leonardobento em Sab Out 24 2009, 10:18

Resumindo e comentando a matéria sobre Second Coming (tradução livre, "A Segunda Vinda"):

- O evento é o final da trilogia iniciada em Complexo de Messias e que ano passado continuou em Messiah War (tradução livre, "Guerra do Messias");
- É consequência direta de Dinastia M, de 2006, quando o destino da espécie mutante parecia rumar ao inevitável: a extinção;
- Começa em março, com um especial (arte de David Finch), e continua por quatro mensais (Uncanny, Legacy, New Mutants e X-Force), terminando em junho com mais um especial;
- X-Force, Legacy e New Mutants terão de passar por Necrosha nesse ínterim. Em Uncanny, o arco é Nation X, que mostra a construção de Utopia, após o cross com os Dark Avengers;
- A revista de Cable ficará de volta. Será que o título será cancelado ou dará uma pausa, já que Cable e Hope estão retornando ao presente nas histórias de "A Girl Called Hope", que será publicada como backup stories em alguns títulos a partir de dezembro.
- O one-shot de início mostrará o auge das maquinações de Bastion, que já podem ser vistas em X-Force e no próximo arco da revista - Necrosha (que resolverá a situação da outra grande ameaça à X-Force: Selene);
- Com o cross, retoma-se a questão da clandestinidade da X-Force: será que Scott conseguirá manter a equipe escondida dos demais X-Men?
- O esquema de publicação será o mesmo de Complexo de Messias - cada edição é um capítulo que deve ser seguido pela leitura do título subsequente. Os autores trabalharão com o elenco fixo dos seus títulos, mas também com membros das outras revistas;
- Como já foi dito antes, essa saga marca o final do run de Kyle&Yost em X-Force.

OBS.: Second Coming é um termo bíblico, que remete à volta do Messias (Jesus) - sua ressurreição dos mortos. O nome parece remeter à volta de Jean Grey. Será?

EDIT: Second Coming, na verdade, tem a significação religiosa de "volta gloriosa de Jesus Cristo, no final dos tempos, para presidir o Juízo Final", segundo a Wikipedia.

Informações quentinhas de Jason Aaron sobre Wolverine:Weapon X e o especial The List:Wolverine:

Spoiler:
Wolverine is a mutant of many talents. His long life and healing factor has allowed him to learn, do, and survive many terrible and wonderful things. Writer Jason Aaron plans on using his run on Marvel Comics' "Wolverine: Weapon X" series to explore how his protagonist handles a variety of dangerous situations and foes. Issue #6 and the special one-shot "Dark Reign: The List-Wolverine" are in stores this week. CBR News spoke with the writer about both, as well as his future plans for 'Weapon X."

In "The Adamantium Men," the recently wrapped first story arc of "Weapon X," Wolverine took on Strikeforce X, an elite combat unit armed with laser claws, healing factors, and unbreakable skeletons that was tasked with doing the dirty work of a private firm of military contractors. Wolverine managed to stop the corporate-sponsored cybernetic killers, and they don't play roles in in issue #6 of the series or "The List" one-shot, but that doesn't mean the X-Man won't be confronted by them again in the future.

"One of my main goals with this series is to introduce new villains and new threats for Wolverine. So that's what we did with this first arc. We introduced this new team with a direct connection to the Weapon X legacy that created Wolverine, and those guys aren't going away," Aaron told CBR News. "We'll see those guys again. In fact, we'll see return appearances by all the villains from these first few arcs of the series. These guys aren't one-hit wonders."

In "Dark Reign: The List - Wolverine," featuring art by Esad Ribic, the title character finds himself in the sites of a villain with an already established legacy of evil; Norman Osborn. The special offered Aaron the chance to write Norman Osborn again while telling a tale woven into the tapestry of Dark Reign, the Marvel U's current big event. "Osborn is a lot of fun to write. I could definitely get used to writing him, and it's always fun to play in the big sandbox," Aaron said. "I've been to a couple of Marvel retreats now, and it was weird for me, at first, to be in a situation like that because, obviously, the only writing I've ever done is at home in front of a keyboard. So to be in a situation where you're in a room fleshing out a story with 30 other people was really weird, but very exciting and a lot of fun.

"So, it's nice to be part of an event like 'Dark Reign: The List,'" Aaron continued. "Most of the stuff I do is kind of off in it's own little corner of the Marvel Universe, like 'Ghost Rider.' And with 'Wolverine: Weapon X,' we're [also] trying to build a series that is a little more stand alone."


Yanick Paquette art from "Weapon X" #7
The other attraction of "Dark Reign: The List - Wolverine" was that it allowed Aaron to explore several of the characters and concepts that writer Grant Morrison created for the Marvel Universe. "We go back to the massive world dome where the soldiers from the Weapon Plus program were created," the writer revealed. "Plus, we bring back Fantomex, and I also get to use Marvel Boy."

When readers last saw Marvel Boy in the pages of "Dark Avengers," the confused character had discovered that Norman Osborn was a megalomaniacal villain. He then fled the Dark Avengers and went underground. "Dark Reign: The List - Wolverine" picks up that plot thread, and finds Marvel Boy still on the run from Osborn's forces. "So, when we see him in this special, he gets sucked into teaming with Wolverine, and eventually we get to see Marvel Boy teaming up with Fantomex," Aaron explained. "I realized after writing a page or two of Fantomex and Marvel Boy together talking, that I could write an entire book starring both of them. They're two great characters, and getting them together for the first time was very enjoyable.

"I'm a huge fan of these characters. Morrison's 'Marvel Boy' was one of my favorite Marvel Comics series of all time. I think it's a perfect mini-series," Aaron continued. "And I love Fantomex, who made his debut during Morrison's 'New X-Men' run. He's an underused character that both I and Matt Fraction are fans of. We've both been competing to get our hands on him. I got to him first and Matt's trying to snatch him away right now. I'll try and snatch him right back though because Fantomex is so much fun to write."

Norman Osborn isn't the only enemy standing in the way of Wolverine's goals in "Dark Reign: The List - Wolverine." He also has to match wits with the mysterious Weapon XVI. "As if Marvel Boy and Fantomex weren't enough, we also bring in Weapon XVI," Aaron remarked. "I don't want to say anything about the character, but Weapon XVI is in the vein of the Grant Morrison type madness that I was hoping [to achieve] with this issue."

Meanwhile, in "Weapon X" #6, Wolverine is confronted by literal madness. The issue kicks off a new four part arc titled "Insane In the Brain," and opens with Wolverine locked in a mental institution. "He doesn't really remember who he is or how he got there. He has vague memories of living with wolverines, going to the moon, and hanging out with people who can teleport and fly. Because of all these crazy memories, the doctor he's dealing with at first believes that Wolverine is completely insane," Aaron explained. "As things go along in the story, which is really just a straight psychological horror story, we start to realize that there is something weird about this mental institution. There's something going on here, and it's a bad place for Logan to be."


Aaron doesn't specifically say where the mental institution that Wolverine gets confined to is located, but there are hints that it may be in the Northern California area near the X-Men's current home of Utopia. Aaron chose to call the institution Dunwich Sanitarium as a nod to legendary horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, who penned the story "The Dunwich Horror." "I figured Arkham Asylum was named after a Lovecraft reference, so it made sense to name a Marvel U sanitarium after a Lovecraft reference," Aaron stated. "I'm a huge Lovecraft fan."

Being named after a fictional town, infamous for breeding an unspeakable horror, isn't the only thing unsettling about Dunwich Sanitarium. It's staff and patients are also quite disturbing, especially Doctor Rot, the chief villain of the "Insane in the Brain" arc. "Like every 'Weapon X' arc, this story is new reader friendly and features all new villains, characters and situations. Logan is one of those guys that you can't really take down physically. He's got this healing factor, and he's such a great fighter, that it's hard to create new villains that pose a physical threat to him," Aaron remarked. "In this situation, though, we see how you can go after him mentally. In this story, you see how easy it is to drive Wolverine insane. You already know that he's got this berserker side of him that he tries to bury. So, what happens when someone brings that out and is able to use that."

Aaron says that Doctor Rot's reasons for manipulating and messing with Logan will remain a mystery at first. "He's the guy who runs the sanitarium, and he's the guy who's dealing with Logan; the guy who gets inside his head. Eventually we discover that Rot doesn't just get into people's heads metaphorically. He does that literally, as well. He cracks open skulls every now and then, and pulls out brains. We don't learn why, right away, or what he does with them, but obviously it's not good.

"As this arc goes along, you'll watch the dark secrets of this mental institution unfold, and we'll introduce some more insane new villains," Aaron continued. "Plus, a couple of familiar faces will pop up as well, like Nightcrawler and Psylocke."

In the previous "Weapon X" arc, reporter Melita Garner and Wolverine's old Team X comrade, Maverick, played supporting roles, but only one of them will appear in "Insane In the Brain." "There's no Maverick, but we do see a little bit of Melita in this story. They'll be reoccurring characters, and Melita will pop up almost every arc," Aaron explained. "At the end of the first arc, there was a surprise about Maverick. You learned that he was more involved in the dealings of the story than you thought. We're leaving him with that cliffhanger for a little while, but we will return to him."

With a new arc comes a new artist, and Aaron is very happy for the chance to collaborate with Yanick Paquette. "Yanick has been doing some great stuff. I think he was itching to do a horror story, which worked out, because I've been throwing lots of craziness at him in these issues," Aaron stated. "He's fully embraced it, and has got a great propensity for drawing brains and lots of bizarre characters, like The Biter, Charlie Chainsaws, and the whole mad cast of characters that are popping up in this arc."

"Insane in the Brain" is thematically about the one element of Wolverine that can't be healed superhumanly fast; his psyche. As such, the events of the storyline will be long lived and will impact future stories in "Weapon X." "This arc is definitely something that's going to knock Logan's feet out from underneath him a little bit," Aaron explained. "And, just like our first arc, it will have lingering effects on Logan's character in the series."

"Insane in the Brain" comes to a conclusion in January 2010, and soon after that, Aaron kicks off the series' next big story arc. "I've started writing the arc, and Ron Garney is coming back to draw it. It will be the biggest arc we've done in this series. It guest stars Captain America and features the return of a 1970s Marvel character that I've been itching to write. The character returns in a big way that throws them right into the middle of the Marvel U," Aaron revealed. "This a character who doesn't have a previous connection to Wolverine, but does have a previous connection to Captain America. cough killercyborgfromthefuture cough.

"This next big arc will be as big a dramatic departure from 'Insane In the Brain,' as that arc was a departure from out first arc," Aaron continued. "With 'Weapon X,' the idea has always been to change things up each arc, and that's going to continue for the foreseeable future. So, every few issues you get a new change, new tone, new genre, and all these new characters thrown into the mix. We also have this core storyline developing that's running through each story. All of these stories matter. They're affecting Wolverine in a big way. We'll see how that all plays in the longer continuing story that's developing, but arc to arc, 'Wolverine: Weapon X' will always be a book you can jump right into. You can pick up any issue or trade and jump right in. You don't have to know all these years of X-Men or Wolverine continuity to enjoy this series."


- Aaron que expor o Logan às situações mais extremas e aos piores vilões.
- Um dos principais objetivos dessa série é apresentar novas ameças e novos vilões - no primeiro arco apareceu a Strikeforce X, uma unidade de elite que usa diversos artifícios semelhantes ao Wolverine, contratada para eliminá-lo.
- O próximo arco mostrará o Logan trancafiado em um hospício, provavelmente na Carolina do Norte, próximo de onde está Utopia.
- O vilão aqui é chamado de Doctor Rot, que manipulará a cabeça de Wolverine.
- Haverá uma participação da repórter Melita Garner, que já esteve presente no primeiro arco. Dessa vez, porém, Maverick não aparece.
- A arte será de Yanick Paquette. No próximo arco, Ron Garney volta.
- Em The List, Aaron novamente trabalhará com Norman Osborn e utilizará também conceitos criados pelo Morrisson, como Arma Plus e a presença de Fantomex. Outra participação é do Marvel Boy.
- Um novo inimigo surge em The List, Arma 16 (XVI).

Entrevista de Marjorie Liu e Daniel Way - Wolverine Origins, Dark Wolverine e Deadpool:

Spoiler:


"Like father, like son" is one of those comments that can be viewed in a positive or negative light, depending on the dad. When your fathers are the Hulk and Wolverine though, odds are that that phrase isn't being used in a complimentary manner. Such is the case for Skaar (Hulk's son) and Daken (Wolvie's boy). Recently, they emulated their dads all too well in a fight reminiscent of Wolverine's first appearance in the Marvel Universe ("Incredible Hulk" #181). There were no winners in this battle…except the readers who were clamoring for this throwdown!

When it comes to the Daken half of the equation, writer Daniel Way knows plenty about the similarities between lil' Logan and his dad - after all, he created the character in "Wolverine: Origins." Currently, Way pens the adventures of the hero/villain in "Dark Wolverine," along with co-writer Marjorie Liu. And when Way isn't busy with Logan and his family tree, he's turning the Merc with a Mouth into a pirate in "Deadpool." Seriously.

Got questions? X-POSITION is here to try and help with answers. Both Way and Liu have joined us for some fun. Let's throw a few queries in the direction of these two highly capable writers and see what happens…

Hunter Lambright starts things off today, and he wants to know about timelines:

1) I just got done with my reading for this week, and I was curious as to what the chronology is with "Incredible Hulk" #603 and "Wolverine: Origins" #41. Which issue comes first? The two seem to contradict each other a bit in regards to their occurrence, so I was hoping you could clear that up for me.

DANIEL WAY: Uhh…little help, editors?

Wow. The first question out of the gate and we're already confounding our guests. Thankfully, "Incredible Hulk" assistant editor Jordan White is available with an assist.

JORDAN WHITE: The way I see it, "Wolverine: Origins" is the first meeting between Banner, Skaar, and Logan, and "Incredible Hulk" takes place sometime shortly thereafter. Logan just tracks the duo down again when he finds out that: a) they tussled with Juggernaut, and b) Daken is coming for Skaar. That, or Marvel continuity has been irrevocably shattered.

2) First off, I recently bought your first volume of Deadpool's latest series in TPB form. Congratulations on making Deadpool funny for me for the first time! I was curious, do you think the success in this series has something to do with the way you've meshed Deadpool with the Marvel Universe? Or is it simply that it was the right time for the character?

WAY: A little of both, probably. From the outset, I was determined not to wall Deadpool off in his own universe - interacting with only "Deadpool" characters - because we've seen that that just doesn't work. As far as it being the character's "time," well, that's where the voodoo comes in.

Sure, voodoo…and some affection from Executive Editor & X-Men Group Editor Axel Alonso.

AXEL ALONSO: Hey, what's not to love about Deadpool? He's a walking Deus Ex Machina. He can break all the rules, and you don't hold it against him. And deep down…he's you.

3) We've seen Daken playing all the sides of the table for himself, but what will his role be in "Siege?" The "Siege of Asgard" seems to be a little out of his range, so I'm wondering what his stake in it will be…

MARJORIE LIU: His stake will be quite personal. Life-changing, even.

Taimur O Dar was also curious about Daken's future…and some of those upcoming events you mentioned.

1) Is there any possibility of Osborn's Dark X-Men team showing up in Daken's title since he used to be a member?

LIU: Anything is possible, but currently there aren't any plans for that…I don't think.

2) Daniel, I've loved your past year's worth of Deadpool, especially how you've used him in "Secret Invasion," "Dark Reign," and "Nation X" events. So I've gotta know - any tie-in plans for the other major upcoming events like "Second Coming," "Siege," or "DoomWar?"

WAY: With Deadpool, you can't rule out anything. And with his popularity soaring like it is, I can almost guarantee you'll be seeing him in all corners of the MU.

Okay, with that in mind, MarvelSam was wondering what he'll find in the corner on the left…

1) It seems that Deadpool is jumping from character to character at the moment, with his obsessions ranging from the X-Men to Spider-Man. So I was wondering if Deadpool would be teaming up with any villains in the near future. The Deadpool/Thunderbolts crossover was fantastic, and I'd be interested to see Deadpool's reaction when he realizes Black Widow was really Natasha in disguise!

WAY: Right now, Deadpool is trying out this whole "hero" thing. Expect some very unexpected guest stars as he bounces around the MU on his dubious quest.

ALONSO: For example, in "Deadpool Team-Up" #898 this December, Deadpool teams up with the Zapata Brothers - the two tough-as-nails Lucheradore bounty hunters.

2) I was wondering if you had any plans to bring a younger version of Sabretooth into the "Dark Wolverine" series? Maybe Sabretooth had a kid too? I think it'd make for an interesting storyline, especially with Sabretooth gone. Maybe younger Sabretooth could end up befriending the original Wolverine! Thoughts?

LIU: No immediate plans, sorry. Though I must admit that I've always been a Sabretooth fan - er, well, the Age of Apocalypse version, anyway. He and Blink were fantastic together.

3) After "Dark Reign" concludes in 2010, I wanted to know what plans you had for the character of Dark Wolverine/Daken. Will the series revert to "Wolverine," with the focus back on Logan? Or will Daken escape New York, and the series begins to focus more on his origins and what he likes to do outside of New York City?

LIU: Daken isn't going to disappear anytime soon, and I can pretty much guarantee that he'll be leaving New York City. As for the rest, there's a big difference between what Daken likes to do and what he needs to do. Up until now, he's been playing games - running his own little social experiment. That's never going to change...because it's fun for him. But the time when he can simply coast and play is going to end. Fast.

4) The current "Wolverine: Origins" issues all seem to be focusing around the same villain - Romulus. Although it makes for an interesting read, I wanted to know if you had any plans to bring Nuke back into the series? Now that he goes by the name Scourge and has the Thunderbolts and Norman Osborn covering his back, a re-encounter would make for an awesome read!

WAY: As a huge Nuke fan, I couldn't be happier that he's back. But, other than in flashbacks, you won't be seeing him in "Origins."

As long as MarvelSam brought up Romulus, Aspbros had a few questions about the character and recent events:

1) With regards to the recent issue of "Origins," Logan walks away from Romulus - really? Wolverine seems so much smarter than this. What do you feel is the justification for this?

WAY: For essentially his entire life, Wolverine has done what Romulus wants him to do. In that scene, Romulus wanted Wolverine to kill him. What better revenge could Wolverine have? Stick around and find out.

2) I have to confess, I have mixed feelings about Romulus in general. There's a part of me that finds him interesting, but part of him feels like a bad 80's remix (especially all the funky claws). Wolverine's origin was just starting to feel more clear than it has in decades (especially with him getting his memories back), but Romulus seems to muddy it all up. Has he come across as you intended?

WAY: For the most part, yes.

Cathereen is up next, and she's taking a look at some of the X-characters through lenses that are extremely XX…chromosome, that is.

1) This is a question for Marjorie - as a woman, do you feel you view Wolverine differently than guys? A lot of Wolverine books (in the past, anyhow) have been all about him being a tough, macho killing machine. While that can occasionally be fun, it feels one-note after awhile. How do you see Logan and what draws you to him?

LIU: Does my gender affect the way I see Wolverine? Probably. I'm sure of it. But I honestly can't tell you what those differences might be. I just write. I don't analyze. Of course, having said that, I'm also viewing Wolverine through the eyes of all the writers who have built his character over the years - and that's an influence that just might be more powerful than my gender.

As for the rest, I see Logan as the pure distilled essence of the rugged individualist - one of the most dangerous men in the world, whose lethal qualities are tempered by a common sense approach to right and wrong. He'll go through hell and back to help a friend, and yet he's a cold-hearted killer. I mean, I could go on…but suffice to say, he's a fascinating character.

2) And how about Daken? He seems like a big testosterone machine. What makes him special to you and how is his attitude different than Wolverine? How about someone like Deadpool?

LIU: When I imagine a testosterone machine, the first thing that comes to mind is an out of control seventeen-year old boy who is desperately showing off for his friends; or some dude who doesn't have confidence but pretends to be something special by talking loud, picking fights, and treating women like it's 20,000 BC (and there's a cave and bone-club that needs swinging). But, having pondered this issue far longer than I really need too - and after gazing upon old photos of Clint Eastwood, Cary Grant, and Johnny Depp - it's only fair to commend all the other fine, upstanding, testosterone machines in the world; whether that testosterone is raging, quiet, or barely there.

But, I digress. Daken is sophisticated…and masculine. He's got confidence, intelligence, and - unlike his father - he takes delight in manipulating others, whether for his own amusement or actual gain. Daken has tons of testosterone, and he knows what to do with it.

Deadpool, on the other hand, is just nuts - crazy, a lunatic. Deliciously so.

Uh, yum? Batmangorilla wants to know about the future, but is also hoping for a look back at the past.

1) I have a question for Daniel Way about his "Wolverine: Origins" run - you've mentioned that you had a clear end in mind when you started this book. With that in mind, is this book ending soon or do we still have a long way to go?

WAY: If all goes according to plan, ‘Origins' will end at issue #50. I think.

2) Also, does the "Dark Wolverine" comic make your work more difficult or easier as you don't have to deal with Daken in "Origins?"

WAY: As some of you may recall, the original plan was for "Origins" to run 60 issues. But with Daken breaking out on his own, in his own book, I've been able to accelerate that pace.

3) For the "Dark Wolverine" team, will we see more of Daken in his off-time soon (i.e. out of costume)?

WAY: Guaranteed.

LIU: Read issue #81.

4) And regarding "Deadpool," when are we going to get a clear origin story for Deadpool and what he ultimately spends his money on?

WAY: Deadpool's origin has already been told, and I have no plans to go back to it. To answer the second part of your question - money, to Deadpool, is a means to an end. We've seen what happens when he has money but nothing to spend it on: he shuts down. Literally. Deadpool is a reaction; when there's no action, he ceases to exist.

ALONSO: Hey, a guy's got to have his mystique, doesn't he? We'll get around to filling in some of the blanks. As for Wade's finances, I don't think he spends his money so much as he blows his money. He's not the kind of guy who keeps a savings account.

And that's the last of our questions from you, the fans. But before we go, we're going to try a little something new. As you know, our special guests come every week and kindly answer your questions, but these folks are more than just living X-Men wikis. Therefore, in an attempt to get to know our visitors a little better, I'm going to ask them a question to give us a peek "Behind the X," so to speak.

This week's question is a somewhat leading one, but when you hear that someone is engaged in a benevolent activity, you naturally want to let others know. Soooo…Marjorie, I've heard you're involved with a group that is attempting to make the upcoming holiday season a bit brighter for some folks that could use a little cheer. Care to share some details with our readers?

LIU: Thanks, George. There's a wonderful organization called Support Our Soldiers, which for years has been sending books overseas to our troops. Its founder, Kelley Granzow, is beginning to put together care packages for the holidays and is trying to gather small items to include in the boxes...such as books! If you've got gently used books or comics that you wouldn't mind parting with, please send them to:

Support Our Soldiers
c/o Kelley Granzow
P.O. Box 624
Brice, OH 43109

If you have more questions, you can email Kelley directly at kelleygranzow@yahoo.com. S.O.S. has 300 soldiers this year, 128 of which are in Afghanistan. The deadline is late November.

WAY: My brother is in the Army and just got back from Iraq. Programs like these mean so much to our soldiers. And if you can't send a book, just send a letter. Anything.

Re: X-Position

Mensagem  leonardobento em Ter Nov 03 2009, 21:12

O X-Position dessa semana é com o Peter David, comentando as bombásticas revelações de X-Factor #50. Amanhã farei os comentários em português das entrevistas com Liu & Way e Peter David.

Spoiler:


Dimitris starts things off for us with a tablespoon of praise, but needs a teaspoon of clarification. Can you help him out?

1) Issue #50 was epic and it really showed how you had things planned from your very first arc of "X-Factor!" Bravo! However, I'm still confused about some of the details surrounding Cortex. We found out that he got his abilities when he was trapped in a vortex, trying to return to the present. But we also know that Forge sent him to an entirely different future than the one Layla ended up on (the one with Falcone and Ruby and Fitzroy) - so what's the missing link here? Or is Cortex simply due for another, more exposition-y appearance?

He won't be back imminently, but there is definitely more to Cortex's origin that I intend to explore further down the line. What I was trying to convey was that he had found a way to dimension-jump from the timeline he'd gotten stuck in over into the other timeline, but something happened along the way that caused him to wind up the way he did. Presumably Tryp was deeply involved and pulling the strings. But I didn't want to stop the story to have an entire origin-of-Cortex digression, so I figured I'd save it for another time.

2) Also, why was Cortex so eager to wipe out Hecat'e's family tree? From what we saw, she didn't have much of an impact to his or Falcone's plans...

His activities weren't restricted to Hecat'e. Remember, he'd been active for awhile before X-Factor entered the situation. He was simply being systematic: the notion was that he was eliminating all mutants retroactively one by one. It was simply when he got to Hecat'e that he came a cropper because Lenore had the presence of mind to get protection.

Remember that she mentioned that a friend of hers had already died under suspicious circumstances. Well, someone in the future vanished as a result. And it's impossible to know how many future mutants Cortex took out by that method. But because it was so time-consuming a process, Falcone had come up with Operation Clean Sweep so the elimination of mutants wouldn't have to be so piecemeal.

3) Strong Guy's issues with Rictor's bisexuality were major fun! (And, as a gay man, I didn't find them offensive at all.) Are we going to see more of this in the future? I hope Guido doesn't get over it yet, because so far he's been comedy gold!

Oh yes, definitely. I particularly like the notion that Guido considers himself to be very liberal. He would think he wouldn't be bothered by someone's sexual preferences. So he's as annoyed with himself to discover he's uncomfortable with Ric and Star's relationship as Rictor is with him because of his attitudes. It's kind of a learning experience for both of them.

Brian Edwards also wants to learn. Do you have a lesson plan to share, Professor Peter? I loved "X-Factor" #50. It was a great wrap-up to a very involved and complex storyline. The biggest and most fun surprise was the reveal of how Layla "knows stuff." How much of that was your plan from the start? And if it wasn't, how and when did it come about?

I did the same thing I usually do: had several different scenarios in my head as to the origins of Layla's talents. When this particular storyline developed, I decided this was the way to go. But I always knew about Layla's other talent, as revealed in #50. I even foreshadowed it way back in issue #10, I think it was. Always wondered why no one ever questioned how Layla brought the dead butterfly back to life.

RickyD410 is reevaluating Layla's earlier appearances in light of recent events. He's pulled out his magnifying glass, but he's not quite sure what he's looking at...
1) How does the Layla's reveal at the end relate back to her "House of M" powers/appearance? Or are they completely unrelated?

Although HoM was Layla's first appearance, I've always used that as a jumping off point to do all kinds of other things with her. I honestly haven't made any real attempt to square everything in my own mind because I'm not sure it's possible and I didn't want to hamstring myself. But hey, if you can make it all work seamlessly, I'm all for it.

2) And what was the deal with her appearance in "Messiah CompleX," where Layla sometimes appeared as a mutant, and sometimes as a human?

The nanomites in her head were a futuristic technology that thwarted the detection devices. What nanomites? Funny you should ask...

3) When Layla went back in time (at the end of issue #50), did she appear to herself before or after "House of M"? And what did that device do exactly?

I actually figured it was post-HoM, while she was in the orphanage. That it was, in fact, the catalyst event that prompted her to take off and join X-Factor. She did that because she'd just received the knowledge that she was supposed to do that. That's just my feeling, though. Others may feel it works better if it happened pre-HoM, and if that's what they want to go with, I'm perfectly okay with that since I have no intention of exploring the timing.

As for what the device did, basically it downloaded the equivalent of adult Layla's diary into the young Layla's cerebral cortex using nanomite technology. But, as the adult Layla said, there was only so much that the child's brain could absorb.

4) If Layla did go back in time and stayed there, does this mean that adult Layla has just going about her life - albeit "lurking" in the background - throughout the entire "X-Factor" series? And if she's finally caught up to the present, does this mean she doesn't "know things" anymore?

In retrospect, I wish I'd had artists randomly drawing adult Layla into crowd scenes throughout the entire series, so that readers could go back and make it like "Where's Waldo?" But the truth is that Layla has in fact been up to other stuff in the intervening year or so of Marvel time that the series has been running. And I promise you that we're going to be finding out very soon what that something is.

And yes, she still knows stuff (not "things" - stuff! How many times does she have to say the catchphrase?). Remember, she made a point of saying that she downloaded information covering things that she had learned about what had happened the subsequent eighty years. So basically she's covered through the end of the 21st century.

5) And why is Layla's "mission" to make sure that X-Factor doesn't find out the truth about Decimation? She told that to the Singularity operative waaay back at the beginning. And why is it her job to make sure that "reality stays on track," as she says to Jamie in this issue?

Because she wants to be able to be of continued help to X-Factor. If matters wander too far afield, then the things she knows could become moot and she wouldn't be of use. As for the Decimation, well, there's still stuff about the future that Layla knows that she hasn't tipped her hand to. She had her reasons for wanting to keep X-Factor in the dark, and we may not know all of them yet.

Andre4000 feels like he's in the dark too. Can you enlighten him?
1) According to what we've learned in issue #50, Layla's only mutant power is resurrecting the dead, correct? And if what she's said about Fitzroy being soulless is true, that power doesn't seem very useful...although it does sound pretty darn scary. Will her powers come more into focus soon?

We'll see them in use again. And they can indeed be useful. It's just a matter of picking your shots.

2) With Layla's power, it seems as though she should be involved with "Necrosha." How come "X-Factor" isn't tying into this event?

Timing didn't really work out. We were moving to the #200, we were setting up the crew in their new digs and working on the new status quo; just didn't seem the time to jam in a crossover as well.

3) What can you tell us about the team's move back to New York and/or their "Nation X" issue? Which takes place first?

The relocation to New York is definitely first. In fact, although the team is still splintered in #200, everyone appears in the "Nation X" issue. So in terms of our chronology it actually takes places a few issues down the road. If nothing else, it should ease concerns that the group is going to remain in pieces indefinitely.

Michael Hall asks a couple of questions that I see nearly every week. Maybe it's time for some answers...
1) Is there any chance Longshot will meet up with Dazzler soon? Maybe in "Nation X"?

Ohhhh yes. Yes, they definitely hook up...uhm, run into each other...in "Nation X."

2) Will we be seeing Ruby Summers again? Maybe in an upcoming arc? I'd love to see her meet up with M in the present...

No immediate plans. Honestly, everyone seems to be waiting for her to show up in modern day, and if everyone's expecting it, that's certainly the perfect reason not to do it. Unless of course I come up with a story concept that's just irresistible. But it would have to be really good for me to do it since, right now, my instinct is to leave her where she is.

3) Regarding the "Dark Tower" series, will you be writing stories that fill in the gap between the Marvel Comics stories and Stephen King's first novel "The Gunslinger"?

We are going to continue charting Roland's journey from a young man to being the last of the gunslingers.

Q: We began today talking about plot points that have been planted early in your run. Well, there are still a few left. Dayspring has a theory regarding one of these, and it's fairly solid. Let's see what you think... I'm calling it right now - Layla Miller is sister to Valeria Richards and the daughter of Doctor Doom. This explains her unusually cordial relationship with Doom in the future, Guido and Jamie's comment that Valeria reminds them of Layla in #200, and the fact that Layla is included in Nick Fury's caterpillar file as a child of a "superhuman." I assume you'll un-convolute Valeria's origins and, in the process, reveal that orphan Layla is Layla von Doom. I'll wait for my no-prize in the mail...

No, Layla isn't Valeria's sister. But her relationship with Doom...that's a different matter.

Q: Dum-dum-dum-doooom. And on that ominous note, I'm closing out today with a new segment which we began last week. I'm asking our guests a more personal question to give us a peek "behind the X" (so to speak). Therefore, in light of the recent holiday, what is the one type of candy you find impossible to resist? And conversely, what type of candy can you not stand?

Ghirardelli chocolate bars. They're the best. They make great brownies, too (check out their mix). And good chocolate fudge.

Candy I can't stand? Anything with nuts in it.

Re: X-Position

leonardobento escreveu:O X-Position dessa semana é com o Peter David, comentando as bombásticas revelações de X-Factor #50. Amanhã farei os comentários em português das entrevistas com Liu & Way e Peter David.

Spoiler:


Dimitris starts things off for us with a tablespoon of praise, but needs a teaspoon of clarification. Can you help him out?

1) Issue #50 was epic and it really showed how you had things planned from your very first arc of "X-Factor!" Bravo! However, I'm still confused about some of the details surrounding Cortex. We found out that he got his abilities when he was trapped in a vortex, trying to return to the present. But we also know that Forge sent him to an entirely different future than the one Layla ended up on (the one with Falcone and Ruby and Fitzroy) - so what's the missing link here? Or is Cortex simply due for another, more exposition-y appearance?

He won't be back imminently, but there is definitely more to Cortex's origin that I intend to explore further down the line. What I was trying to convey was that he had found a way to dimension-jump from the timeline he'd gotten stuck in over into the other timeline, but something happened along the way that caused him to wind up the way he did. Presumably Tryp was deeply involved and pulling the strings. But I didn't want to stop the story to have an entire origin-of-Cortex digression, so I figured I'd save it for another time.

2) Also, why was Cortex so eager to wipe out Hecat'e's family tree? From what we saw, she didn't have much of an impact to his or Falcone's plans...

His activities weren't restricted to Hecat'e. Remember, he'd been active for awhile before X-Factor entered the situation. He was simply being systematic: the notion was that he was eliminating all mutants retroactively one by one. It was simply when he got to Hecat'e that he came a cropper because Lenore had the presence of mind to get protection.

Remember that she mentioned that a friend of hers had already died under suspicious circumstances. Well, someone in the future vanished as a result. And it's impossible to know how many future mutants Cortex took out by that method. But because it was so time-consuming a process, Falcone had come up with Operation Clean Sweep so the elimination of mutants wouldn't have to be so piecemeal.

3) Strong Guy's issues with Rictor's bisexuality were major fun! (And, as a gay man, I didn't find them offensive at all.) Are we going to see more of this in the future? I hope Guido doesn't get over it yet, because so far he's been comedy gold!

Oh yes, definitely. I particularly like the notion that Guido considers himself to be very liberal. He would think he wouldn't be bothered by someone's sexual preferences. So he's as annoyed with himself to discover he's uncomfortable with Ric and Star's relationship as Rictor is with him because of his attitudes. It's kind of a learning experience for both of them.

Brian Edwards also wants to learn. Do you have a lesson plan to share, Professor Peter? I loved "X-Factor" #50. It was a great wrap-up to a very involved and complex storyline. The biggest and most fun surprise was the reveal of how Layla "knows stuff." How much of that was your plan from the start? And if it wasn't, how and when did it come about?

I did the same thing I usually do: had several different scenarios in my head as to the origins of Layla's talents. When this particular storyline developed, I decided this was the way to go. But I always knew about Layla's other talent, as revealed in #50. I even foreshadowed it way back in issue #10, I think it was. Always wondered why no one ever questioned how Layla brought the dead butterfly back to life.

RickyD410 is reevaluating Layla's earlier appearances in light of recent events. He's pulled out his magnifying glass, but he's not quite sure what he's looking at...
1) How does the Layla's reveal at the end relate back to her "House of M" powers/appearance? Or are they completely unrelated?

Although HoM was Layla's first appearance, I've always used that as a jumping off point to do all kinds of other things with her. I honestly haven't made any real attempt to square everything in my own mind because I'm not sure it's possible and I didn't want to hamstring myself. But hey, if you can make it all work seamlessly, I'm all for it.

2) And what was the deal with her appearance in "Messiah CompleX," where Layla sometimes appeared as a mutant, and sometimes as a human?

The nanomites in her head were a futuristic technology that thwarted the detection devices. What nanomites? Funny you should ask...

3) When Layla went back in time (at the end of issue #50), did she appear to herself before or after "House of M"? And what did that device do exactly?

I actually figured it was post-HoM, while she was in the orphanage. That it was, in fact, the catalyst event that prompted her to take off and join X-Factor. She did that because she'd just received the knowledge that she was supposed to do that. That's just my feeling, though. Others may feel it works better if it happened pre-HoM, and if that's what they want to go with, I'm perfectly okay with that since I have no intention of exploring the timing.

As for what the device did, basically it downloaded the equivalent of adult Layla's diary into the young Layla's cerebral cortex using nanomite technology. But, as the adult Layla said, there was only so much that the child's brain could absorb.

4) If Layla did go back in time and stayed there, does this mean that adult Layla has just going about her life - albeit "lurking" in the background - throughout the entire "X-Factor" series? And if she's finally caught up to the present, does this mean she doesn't "know things" anymore?

In retrospect, I wish I'd had artists randomly drawing adult Layla into crowd scenes throughout the entire series, so that readers could go back and make it like "Where's Waldo?" But the truth is that Layla has in fact been up to other stuff in the intervening year or so of Marvel time that the series has been running. And I promise you that we're going to be finding out very soon what that something is.

And yes, she still knows stuff (not "things" - stuff! How many times does she have to say the catchphrase?). Remember, she made a point of saying that she downloaded information covering things that she had learned about what had happened the subsequent eighty years. So basically she's covered through the end of the 21st century.

5) And why is Layla's "mission" to make sure that X-Factor doesn't find out the truth about Decimation? She told that to the Singularity operative waaay back at the beginning. And why is it her job to make sure that "reality stays on track," as she says to Jamie in this issue?

Because she wants to be able to be of continued help to X-Factor. If matters wander too far afield, then the things she knows could become moot and she wouldn't be of use. As for the Decimation, well, there's still stuff about the future that Layla knows that she hasn't tipped her hand to. She had her reasons for wanting to keep X-Factor in the dark, and we may not know all of them yet.

Andre4000 feels like he's in the dark too. Can you enlighten him?
1) According to what we've learned in issue #50, Layla's only mutant power is resurrecting the dead, correct? And if what she's said about Fitzroy being soulless is true, that power doesn't seem very useful...although it does sound pretty darn scary. Will her powers come more into focus soon?

We'll see them in use again. And they can indeed be useful. It's just a matter of picking your shots.

2) With Layla's power, it seems as though she should be involved with "Necrosha." How come "X-Factor" isn't tying into this event?

Timing didn't really work out. We were moving to the #200, we were setting up the crew in their new digs and working on the new status quo; just didn't seem the time to jam in a crossover as well.

3) What can you tell us about the team's move back to New York and/or their "Nation X" issue? Which takes place first?

The relocation to New York is definitely first. In fact, although the team is still splintered in #200, everyone appears in the "Nation X" issue. So in terms of our chronology it actually takes places a few issues down the road. If nothing else, it should ease concerns that the group is going to remain in pieces indefinitely.

Michael Hall asks a couple of questions that I see nearly every week. Maybe it's time for some answers...
1) Is there any chance Longshot will meet up with Dazzler soon? Maybe in "Nation X"?

Ohhhh yes. Yes, they definitely hook up...uhm, run into each other...in "Nation X."

2) Will we be seeing Ruby Summers again? Maybe in an upcoming arc? I'd love to see her meet up with M in the present...

No immediate plans. Honestly, everyone seems to be waiting for her to show up in modern day, and if everyone's expecting it, that's certainly the perfect reason not to do it. Unless of course I come up with a story concept that's just irresistible. But it would have to be really good for me to do it since, right now, my instinct is to leave her where she is.

X-Position - Peter David

Mensagem  leonardobento em Qua Nov 04 2009, 18:42

Segue o resuminho da entrevista com o Peter David:

- Não será de imediato, mas David pretende explorar mais o Cortex daqui um tempo. Provavelmente, Damien Tryp estava por trás do que aconteceu com essa cópia do Madrox enviada ao futuro em Complexo de Messias.

- Poderemos ver mais situações em que Guido lidará com a bi/homossexualidade do Rictor e o seu desconforto em relação a isso.

- Desde X-Factor #10, David tinha em mente qual seria o verdadeiro poder de Layla – isto é, trazer as pessoas da morte, mas sem nenhuma consciência ou alma. Isto já estava presente, por exemplo, na cena em que ela trouxe a borboleta de volta à vida. Ele acha difícil poder situar especificamente a cena em que a Layla mais velha conversa com a Layla garota, entre antes ou depois do Dia M. Além disso, ele procura dissociar a Layla que desenvolveu com a primeira aparição dela, em Dinastia M. Ela foi confundida com simplesmente humana durante o Complexo de Messias devido a nanomitas presentes na cabeça dela, que a tornavam indetectável (contudo, ele mesmo não sabe de onde vieram esses nanomitas...). Durante toda sua passagem em X-Factor, Layla sabia das coisas, pois recebeu todas as informações de sua versão futura.

DÚVIDA: Minha dúvida é, ela só foi ao futuro por ter estado no presente durante algum tempo – contudo, ela voltou do futuro ao presente para dar todo o conhecimento a ela – logo, como isso se explica? O fato gerador de ela ter ido para o futuro foi saber das coisas no presente, mas ela só sabia das coisas porque já havia estado no futuro. Como saio desse círculo?

- X-Factor não se envolverá com Necrosha, mesmo Layla tendo esse poder. Poderemos ver mais do poder da garota daqui para frente.

- O especial de X-Factor com Nation X acontece depois do primeiro arco do grupo em Nova Iorque. Durante o primeiro arco, a equipe de X-Factor se reagrupa de novo e em Nation X ela já está unida. Veremos o encontro de Longshot e Cristal nesse especial.

- Não há planos para Ruby Summers aparecer de novo.

- Layla não é irmã de Valeria Richards, mas ela tem um relacionamento distinto com o Destino.

X-Position - Way&Lyu

Mensagem  leonardobento em Qui Nov 05 2009, 08:42

Resumo do X-Position com Daniel Way e Marjorie Liu:

- Para situar cronologicamente, o primeiro encontro entre Daken, Skaar e Logan aconteceu em Wolverine: Origins #41. Algum tempo depois, há um segundo encontro, mostrado em Incredible Hulk #603, quando Wolverine descobre que eles enfrentam o Fanático e que Daken está vindo ao encontro de Sakar.

- Way credita parte do sucesso de Deadpool à maneira com a qual ele está conseguindo fazer interagir o personagem com o restante do Universo Marvel (Invasão Secreta, Thunderbolts, Dark Reign, X-Men).

- Siege (Cerco de Asgard) parece não ter nada a ver com Daken, mas ele participará da minissérie. Seu envolvimento, contudo, será pessoal – uma mudança de vida. Com a foto divulgada hoje, em que o Wolverine está batendo em Daken, podemos ter algumas pistas.

- Não há planos para o Daken voltar a se envolver com os Dark X-Men.

- Não há nenhuma confirmação, mas pode ser que haja tie-ins do Deadpool em Second Coming, Siege e DoomWar.

- Não há planos imediatos para uma versão mais jovem (talvez um filho, à la Daken) do Dentes-de-Sabre em Dark Wolverine.

- Com o fim de Dark Reign, Daken não deixará de dar as caras e deixará Nova Iorque.

- Não há planos para a volta do Bazuca em Origins.

- Wolverine não matou Romulus para mostrar que ele não necessariamente sempre faz o que Romulus espera que ele faça.

- Daken é másculo e é um poço de testosterona. (Será?)

- Se tudo sair como planejado, Origins será encerrado no número 50. Em janeiro sairá a edição 44. Originalmente, Origins acabaria no número 50, mas como Daken ganhou seu próprio título (Dark Wolverine), eles tiveram que acelerar.

- Em Dark Wolverine 81, veremos Daken em seu “tempo livre”, sem estar uniformizado.

- Não há planos para histórias sobre a origem do Deadpool e, quanto ao seu dinheiro, ele não é o tipo de cara que faz poupança, então nunca o veremos como um milionário, pois gasta tudo o que ganha.

S.W.O.R.D.

Mensagem  leonardobento em Seg Nov 09 2009, 18:32

Reportagem sobre a estreia da série da S.W.O.R.D. (E.S.P.A.D.A. no Brasil):

Spoiler:


While the recent Skrull "Secret Invasion" of Earth terrified many residents of the Marvel Universe, they would be even more frightened if they knew that their planet was almost in constant danger from many of the Marvel U's space faring cultures and empires. It's the job of the Sentient World Observation and Response Department, or S.W.O.R.D., to stop those invasions and deal with any interstellar matters that might affect Earth. On November 11, writer Kieron Gillen and artist Steven Sanders will take readers inside the mysterious organization when Marvel Comics' new "S.W.O.R.D." series kicks off. CBR News spoke with Gillen about the book, which begins with a fast paced multi-part arc that unfolds over the course of 24 hours. "Roughly," stresses Gillen.

The central character of "S.W.O.R.D." is it's former sole leader and now co-commander Agent Abigail Brand. Creators Joss Whedon and John Cassaday introduced the half-human, half-alien Brand in issue #3 of "Astonishing X-Men." She was something of enigma then, and even though she played a central role in "Secret Invasion," Agent Brand is still a character shrouded in mystery.

"I love Brand. We actually haven't gotten her whole history yet, and we don't really know what makes her operate the way that she does. That's part of the core of the series. The more the book goes on, the more you'll get to know Agent Brand, and you'll find out why she's so angry," Gillen told CBR News. "Basically, at one point in her life something went wrong for Brand and she wants to make sure it never happens again. That core lesson showed her how the world works, and by operating a certain way she can stop the world from being like that. You might guess from what she does and her half alien heritage that what happened to her involves aliens and organizations. That's why it's incredibly hard for her to give up control of things. She doesn't trust people to not make mistakes. She's got a core lack of trust in people.

"We see that in how she deals with almost everyone she meets. On one level, that makes her incredibly monomaniacal," Gillen continued. "It also makes her quite lonely. Beneath her bravado there's a loneliness. That's why I think she and Beast are in an interesting relationship. Beast has no problem being open. His problem is almost the complete opposite of that."

Beast and Brand's romantic and professional relationship began in the pages of "Astonishing X-Men" when she both offered him a position as her adviser and sexually propositioned him. When "S.W.O.R.D." begins, the two have been a couple for a short while, and he's just accepted her offer to come work with her. "So, in addition to his duties with the X-Men, Beast will also be part of S.W.O.R.D. Part of that is because Beast looks for new challenges. He's one of the X-Men who have gone off and done a lot of different things," Gillen explained. "There's also a sense that S.W.O.R.D. is simpler than the X-Men at the moment. It's a little weird to think that Beast's life is so complicated right now that the idea of working for a secret interplanetary organization and dealing with thousands of aliens races on a daily basis is simple, but that's the case."

The romance between Beast and Brand will be a big part of "S.W.O.R.D." "When I and my editor Nick Lowe first talked about this book, we definitely saw the idea of an adventuring couple as being significant. For me the heart of this series is Beast and Brand's relationship," Gillen remarked. "They could, of course, split up sometime, but right now the way I'm writing this series is that it's about the two of them discovering each other. They're a fledgling couple and they don't really know each other yet. How much can they trust each other?

"That's a lot of the emotional juice of the series because Brand is prickly. It's far easier to get together with her than it is staying together with her. 'I need you,' are not words that easily fall off her tongue," Gillen continued. "I think there's plenty of soap opera and human elements in 'S.W.O.R.D.,' and they're present in a very natural way because fundamentally we're orbiting around a couple."

Another one of the major characters in "S.W.O.R.D." will be also be very familiar to X-Men fans. During the course of their "Astonishing X-Men" run, Joss Whedon and John Cassaday established that Kitty Pryde's pet dragon was far more intelligent than any of the X-Men ever realized. Lockheed was, in fact, a member of an advanced race of extraterrestrials and had been working with S.W.O.R.D. for some time. When the series, begins Lockheed is now a full-blown agent of S.W.O.R.D., but he's dealing with the effects of what happened to Kitty Pryde at the end of Whedon and Cassaday's run on "Astonishing." "The most important person in his life has been taken away. Kitty is trapped in this enormous bullet flying through space, and no one is going to get her back," Gillen stated. "I did a back up story in issue #1 with my collaborator from 'Phonogram,' artist Jamie McKelvie. It's Brand filling Lockheed in on what's happened and why they haven't gotten Kitty back yet. The story sets up why he's so furious.

"So he's fallen into an incredibly bad mood, and when you first meet him in issue #1, he's downing whiskey. The line I use with him, which is both tongue in cheek and completely serious, is that he's our Wolverine. He's an incredibly bad tempered creature who will do whatever it takes to get a job done. He's showy, snarky, and rude almost all the time," Gillen continued. "I don't play things completely straight though. It's also quite funny. There's something intrinsically interesting for the team's hard case to be a tiny, fluffy dragon who would sear your head off because he's in a really bad mood."

Another established Marvel character that will play a huge role in "S.W.O.R.D." is Henry Peter Gyrich. Gyrich first appeared in a 1978 issue of Avengers where his ill temper and rigid attitudes about national security made him the team's most unpopular government liaison. Since then, he's popped up in numerous Marvel comics throughout the years, usually in some sort of governmental - and not entirely ethical - role. His most recent appearances were in "Avengers: The Initiative," where he headed up the Shadow Initiative, the U.S. Government's superhuman black-ops team. When "S.W.O.R.D." begins, Gyrich has a new jobas co-commander of "S.W.O.R.D." He brings with him a number of ideas that could impact lots of lives in negative ways, yet Gillen doesn't see Gyrich as evil.

"Evil is a big word. Gyrich's not evil, but what he might be is overly simplistic and under-prepared. You can't say his heart is in the right place, either, because he's awkward and slightly vindictive. Really, though, his aims are the exact same as Brand's. He just wants to go about things in a way that cuts straight to the chase. He's brought into this organization he doesn't really know much about," Gillen remarked. "That's a running theme, that Gyrich doesn't really understand S.W.O.R.D. as well as Brand does, but he believes in 'big stick' solutions to problems. He lacks a certain empathy. He doesn't think about what happens to the aliens that his plans affect. All that matters is that the Earth is safe."

Another prominent character in "S.W.O.R.D" is Agent Brand's reptilian adviser, Sydren, who first appeared in "Astonishing X-Men" #10. "He's a telepath, and he's one of Brand’s supporters. And S.W.O.R.D. isn't the world's biggest organization, but it is pretty sizable. I haven't got enough space to show all of Brand's adjuncts and helpers, so Sydren kind of embodies almost everyone else at S.W.O.R.D.," Gillen said. "He's put upon, but he's also resilient and competent. Also, the way I'm writing Sydren, he's quite... sappy, might be the word. He worries about the other characters. In the first issue, he's reaching out to Lockheed, who is downing a bottle of Jack Daniels at the time. He's an alien, but in some ways he's one of the most human members of our cast."

Rounding out the cast of "S.W.O.R.D." is a character that Gillen created, an enigmatic robotic life form named Unit. "I describe him as a cross between C-3PO and Hannibal Lecter. He's a robot that has to be kept in isolation. He's very friendly and charming. He's interested in what you're up to, but if he had his way he'd probably skin you and wear you as a hat," Gillen explained. "He's quite dangerous to have around, but the fact that he knows so much stuff makes him useful. So they keep him locked in a cell.

"He's meant to be mysterious. How did he get into this situation? What's he up to? How come he knows all this stuff even though no one is allowed to talk to him?" Gillen continued. "Issue #3 will feature Unit's origin sequence as told by him, and we're setting up some antagonistic stuff with him down the line, because he's clearly not a good guy."

The first storyline of "S.W.O.R.D." is called "No Room to Breathe" and unfolds over the course of a single fast-paced and drama-filled day. "The big concept is that Gyrich decides to push for a plan that forces all of the aliens living on Earth to go home. You'd think Brand would be trying to stop this, but since she's a complete micro-manager, she's run off to deal with another situation that's arisen. That allows Gyrich to get a head start on his program. That's the heart of the story. They're forcing aliens off Earth, and what is Brand going to do about it? Especially since she's half-alien!

"In addition to that, there are all these little plots that Brand has to deal with before she becomes embroiled in Gyrich's scheme. This arc is called 'No Time to Breathe' because the idea is that, in space, no one has time to breathe, the vacuum doesn't matter," Gillen continued. "I wanted to convey the idea that when things go bad for Agent Brand and S.W.O.R.D., they happen very quickly. The whole arc goes from crisis to crisis. Some of them are diplomatic, some of them involve beings trying to unscrew Brand's head from her body."

Gyrich's plan to evict all extraterrestrials from the Earth means that the initial arc of "S.W.O.R.D" will be jam packed with guest stars. "This is a global scale story about all the aliens on Earth being forced home. So we got almost any alien we could find, and even though most of them are just making what amounts to a cameo appearance, I wanted those scenes to be meaningful," Gillen said. "In the second issue, there's one sequence where there's eight different arrests which we show in one spread. So you can extrapolate how these aliens were taken down. I think you need to do that to show the global scale. I can't just say that they're arresting aliens. I've got to show to show a variety of arrests in different forms so it pulls at your emotions and is meaningful.

"There's a larger scene with Marvel Boy which I really like. He's fun to write and he's a very interesting character," Gillen continued. "I've got this scene with Warlock of the New Mutants in issue #3 that quite hefty and challenging to write as well."

Gillen also worked in an appearance by a character that should be quite familiar to fans of the Marvel UK line of comics from the late '80s and early '90s. "In the initial arc, Agent Brand's half brother shows up, and he's being chased by a bounty hunter. I'm quite into the new, so initially the bounty hunter was going to be a new character. Then I thought, 'There's already a perfectly good established Marvel character that I can use. Whenever you give any writer a series, it's almost a guarantee they're going to bring back some character in a minor role. And me being a British guy of a certain age, it was fun to bring back Death's Head I. He's involved in a splendid fight scene in the second issue," Gillen explained. "I brought back Death's Head I rather than any other Death's Head, because he's a time traveling, dimension skipping robot, so there's no reason not to. I did mention it to Simon Furman, the creator of Death's Head, that I was bringing the character back. To be polite, I asked him, 'Would you mind if I do this?' And he was very amused."

Gillen is extremely pleased with the way that his "S.W.O.R.D." collaborator artist Steven Sanders has brought to life Death's Head and the other technological elements of the series. "Steve impresses me. The first major book he did was 'Five Fists of Science' with Matt Fraction, a series that featured Nikola Tesla. And in many ways Steve is like Tesla. He's this obsessive scientific genius who draws incredible technology. He gives me all these cool techno gadgets, and I'll run off and do something with them," Gillen stated. "And he's always asking, 'Can I do this?' and I'm like, 'Yes.' There was a scene in a prison corridor, and he asked if he could draw it like the prisons in 'Tron', where people are walking above them. I thought that was great. Steve is not afraid to give us a feast of visuals.

"His style is also very interesting," Gillen continued. "It's a mix of cartoony and realism. He's done some expressive scenes which I just adore. So I have a book with great emotions, and Steve does great robots."

Gillen also wants to examine the role "S.W.O.R.D" plays in the larger cosmic corner of the Marvel Universe, and eventually hopes to have his cast interact with characters from "Nova" and "Guardians of the Galaxy." "This is a book about what happens when space hits Earth. Conceptually, "S.W.O.R.D." is about stuff that people on Earth never really deal with. All these invasions are actually happening, and before the Avengers are called in, S.W.O.R.D. is out there seeing if they can deal with them first. They have this responsibility, and I'd love to do something with the cosmic books, because they're great books," Gillen said. "'S.W.O.R.D.' can touch on stuff that's tangential to those epics... like, for example, what's happened to the refugees from some of these major space wars? So, there's room for S.W.O.R.D to do all these different stories, because it's a book that takes place on the border between space and Earth. It joins these two big parts of the Marvel Universe together. You can gain energy from both."

Resumo sobre S.W.O.R.D.:

- O Universo Marvel está muito mais atento ao que está além da Terra, depois da Invasão Secreta. A SWORD é responsável por monitorar e proteger o planeta de ameaças alienígenas.

- A personagem principal será Abigail Brand, que foi criada em Astonishing X-Men, por Whedon e Cassaday. Muitos de seus mistérios serão revelados na série.

- As histórias começarão após um “sim” dado por Fera ao convite de Brand de trabalharem juntos. Os dois já estão namorando desde Astonishing. Esse romance será o centro da revista.

- Outro personagem importante é Lockheed, o dragão de Kitty Pride, que surpreendeu os X-Men durante a série de Whedon. Ele é membro de uma raça alienígena e trabalha para a SWORD há muito tempo. Veremos o dragão lidando com a “morte” de Kitty. Na história de back-up da edição 1, teremos Brand explicando para Lockheed o que aconteceu com Kitty e por que eles não foram atrás dela.

- Henry Peter Gyrich também está na série, com um cargo de comando na SWORD, que pode impactar profundamente a “organização”. Outros personagens serão Sydren, conselheiro de Brand; e Unit, um enigmático robô.

- O primeiro arco se chamará “No Room to Breathe” (Sem Espaço para Respirar, em tradução livre). O mote é uma idéia de Gyrich de mandar embora da Terra todos os alienígenas que aqui vivem. Como Brand vai reagir, sendo que ela é meio-alien?

- Alguns personagens, aliens, como Marvel Boy, farão breves aparições. Outro que aparecerá será Death Head, que surgiu na Marvel UK nos anos 80/90.

- SWORD terá um forte impacto no universo cósmico e o autor esperá que o título possa interagir com Nova e Guardiães da Galáxia.

Swierczynski fala sobre Cable

Mensagem  leonardobento em Ter Nov 10 2009, 17:22

Segue a entrevista de Duane Swierczynski sobre Cable:

Spoiler:


At the end of the "House of M" mini-series, the Scarlet Witch used her reality-warping powers to drastically decrease the Marvel Universe's mutant population. Now, there are less than 200 mutants worldwide, and since the Witch used her powers, only one new mutant has been born. This baby girl is known as Hope, because the X-Men and many other mutants see her as a possible messiah that could save the mutant race from extinction.

Unfortunately, not everyone sees Hope as a savior. The former X-Man, Bishop, believes that Hope will grow up and cause a disaster that will in turn give birth to the nightmarish future world he originally hails from. In order to prevent that future from occurring, Bishop will do whatever he must, including the solution he's settled on: killing Hope. When the X-Men discovered Bishop's intentions, Cyclops tasked his son, the time traveling mutant soldier Cable, to protect Hope. Armed with a malfunctioning time machine that can only move forward in time, Cable escaped with Hope into the future. Unfortunately for them, Bishop procured a time machine of his own and set off in hot pursuit of Cable and Hope.

This has been the premise of writer Duane Swierczynski's ongoing "Cable" series since it launched, but that's about to change. From the X-Men's perspective, Cable and Hope have only been gone a few months, but for the fugitives,13 years have passed. "Cable's" current arc finds the titular character, a teenaged Hope, Bishop, and a young boy named Emil trapped aboard a spaceship that's been invaded by the monstrous alien race known as the Brood. CBR News spoke with Swierczynski about the current story line and the following arc, "Homecoming," where Cable and Hope decide that they're tired of running and return to the present.

CBR News: Duane, I noticed in "Cable" #19 that Hope points out to her young friend and first love, Emil, that Cable is not her father. What does Hope know about her real parents? How does she feel about them, and has knowing that Cable isn't her biological father affected her feelings for him?

Duane Swierczynski: Hope knows nothing about her parents - all she knows is that this gruff old dude named Nathan has been taking care of her since birth, and that she's destined for something in the past (our present). As for her feelings about Cable, well, you learn by mimicking your parents, and he's not exactly the most "Aw, come over here and give your ol' dad a hug" kind of guy.

Hope also openly wished that Wolverine and X-23 were there to help out. Would the assumption that she still has fond memories of the X-Force members she met during the "Messiah War" crossover, which saw the X-team traveling to the future where they interacted with Cable and Hope, be correct?

She does. It was her first glimpse of others like her. Aside from Cable, of course.

CBR: Let's talk a little bit about Cable. In recent issues, Hope met Emil, which means that in addition to keeping his surrogate daughter alive, Cable now has to deal with the pressures of teenage romance. Is Cable ready to handle this added emotional drama? How important is protecting Hope's emotional well-being to Cable's overall mission?

DS: Cable's number one mission is, and always has been, keeping Hope alive. (Which is kind of every parents' number one mission, you know?) But at the risk of Rickrolling this interview, Cable's no stranger to love. There's actually a tender moment - well, tender for Cable, anyway - in #20, where he seems to understand how important Emil is to Hope.

CBR: How would you describe the dynamic between Cable and Emil?

DS: Cable treats Emil the same way I intend to treat any of my daughter's suitors one day: they need to know they can be killed in an instant if they step out of line

CBR: Bishop obviously has a strong amount of faith that Hope will grow up and become a monster. So much so that he's sacrificed his convictions, and several body parts, in his quest to kill her. How much harder can this get on the character?

DS: It gets even worse for Bishop. In the next arc, you'll see Bishop realize that he's had a big part in "raising" Hope, too, turning her into the young woman she is today. A young woman who knows 47 ways to gut you with a rusty knife.

CBR: What can you tell us about the remaining chapters of the current arc featuring the Brood?

DS: There's just one more - #20, in stores this week - and then we launch into our big "Homecoming" arc.

CBR: After issue #20, does the action in "Cable" move directly into issue #21 or into the four part "Girl Called Hope" back-up story, which kicked off last week in the pages of "Psylocke" #1?

DS: The story rolls right into #21. The backup stories are little glimpses of Cable and Hope's lives on the run over the years.

CBR: What can you tell us about "Homecoming?"

DS: Cable #21 is the first chapter of "Homecoming," and it's all about Hope realizing that she's had enough of this life on the run. She wants to return to the present and join the rest of the X-Men. That's easier said than done, considering the only working time machine is embedded in Bishop's arm.

CBR: In the months ahead, will things be moving at the same brutal, relentless pace, or are things going to move even faster?

DS: Even faster. Marvel should package the issues with whiplash collars!

CBR: You're working with artists Paul Gulacy and Gabriel Guzman on upcoming "Cable" stories. What do these guys bring to the book?

I'm so glad Paul Gulacy came back to do more "Cable!" His versions of Bishop and Cable are so intense; I swear you can hear them grunting, sweating and bleeding.

And Gabriel Guzman's been absolutely tearing it up with the Brood arc. He'll be doing the art for issues #22 and #23, which, not to spoil anything, require an amazing amount of versatility. Gabriel didn't even flinch.

CBR: For the "Girl Called Hope" back-up stories, you're working with artist Steve Dillon. What's it like working with the acclaimed "Preacher" and "Punisher" artist?

DS: If I were to tell the younger version of myself that I'd be working on something with Steve Dillon someday, I'd assume the older version of me was smoking some incredibly potent form of crack. I hope readers will pick up "Psylocke" #1, "Dark X-Men" #1 (part two of the story, and in stores this week) and the rest to give these backup stories a shot. I'm thrilled with how they turned out.

CBR: "Second Coming," the third chapter of the trilogy that began with Hope's birth in "Messiah CompleX" and continued with "Messiah War," kicks off in the spring of 2010. We know that Cable and Hope are going to be part the story line, but it looks like the "Cable" series is not. Will "Cable" continue to publish during "Second Coming," or is it going on hiatus?

DS: The tale we set out to tell with "Cable" will come to an end as "Second Coming" begins. In fact, it leads right into the crossover. From there - stay tuned.

CBR: Now that the tale you set out to tell is entering its final chapter, what's it like looking back on the book? Any pleasant surprises or things you're especially fond of?

DS: Hope's been the real surprise for me, as a writer. When the series started, she was just a red-haired, green-eyed baby. Kind of cute. Cried a lot. But over the span of the last 21 issues, it's been so much fun watching her grow up, banter with Cable, fall in love, kick Brood butt, and finally blossom into a cool young woman. I'm going to miss her when… well, you'll see.

X-Position - Nick Lowe

Mensagem  leonardobento em Ter Nov 10 2009, 20:00

O X-Position dessa semana é com o editor dos X-Men nos EUa, Nick Lowe.

Confira:

Spoiler:


CBR: Taurean was thankful to see an X-Man of old return to the fold, but wants to know if this new status is permanent or temporary…

Thanks so much for bringing back my favorite character in "Nation X" #2 - Jubilee! My one major request for the X-editors is that Jubilee stays as a regular on an X-book and doesn't fade back into Limbo. Can we also please have a Generation X reunion now? The New Mutants have their thing going; how about Jubes' old gang getting back together along with a resurrected Synch and Skin?

Nick Lowe: I'm sad to say there are no current plans for Synch or Skin, but you know that it's comics, so I'm sure you'll see them sooner or later. As for Jubilee, you'll have to wait and see!

CBR: We may be featuring Nick this week, but X-Editor Jeanine Schaefer has something to contribute too.

JEANINE SCHAEFER: Jubilee is one of my favorite characters, too. You'd be surprised (or maybe you wouldn't!) by how many people I've talked to in the last couple of months who feel the same way we do. You'll definitely see her more in the next few months, so keep your eyes peeled!

CBR: Mauro has been keeping his eyes open, but he's been looking for Cable. Can you help him out?

As a Cable fan, I'm quite curious about the future of his series, as it is shockingly not a part of "Second Coming" and there has been no confirmation that the series will continue after issue #25. Is it canceled, suspended, or getting rebooted? Here's hoping Marvel gives the series the support it deserves…

NL: Are you sure that "Cable" will make it through #25? It'd be hard to have a Cable series starring someone else.

CBR: Mike is curious about a certain cute little redhead…and one other cute little redhead. There sure are a lot of those in the X-world!

I would love to see how Rachel Summer's future world relates to Hope. Any chance this will be revealed?

NL: Do you mean the "Days of Future Past" future? I think that's what you mean. With all the time-travel comings and goings X-side of the universe, I don't know whether that future exists and if it does, I don't think we'll have a second to go there.

CBR: Chad M. Murray hates to be teased. Is it within your mutant abilities to make him feel loved?

1) Editors and writers keep mentioning how Hope has green eyes and red hair, clearly linking her to Jean Grey. I'm pretty sure "The Second Coming" will have nothing to do with Jean's return though, because if it did, I assume you would keep it a secret. So, could you please stop with all the teasing? I think it's kind of cruel to toy with the emotions of us Jean Grey fans like that.

NL: You obviously weren't a youngest child, Chad. Take it from someone who was a youngest child - the last thing you want to do to someone that's teasing you is ask them to stop teasing you.

2) I've been noticing Psylocke has been popping up in a lot of places lately: "Uncanny X-Men," "X-Men: Legacy," "Wolverine: Weapon X," and her own miniseries. I, for one, am grateful for this. Is there an intentional, combined effort to turn this mistreated character into a major player in the X-world?

NL: It's definitely intentional and you have one man to thank for it - Axel Alonso. He loves Psylocke even more than Warren Worthington and CB Cebulski do…and that's saying a lot!

CBR: Joshua Hetherington has a bone to pick with you…actually, it looks like he has a couple. Do you have a rib or two to spare?

1) Is Cyclops the dumbest leader of all time? He's put an endangered species on an island separated from humans. How does he expect mutants will survive when enemies can just torpedo the place from submarines underwater (as shown in "Necrosha," under the island is a weak point)?

NL: I don't think the island is a dumb move at all. To me, the island is a very defensible position. It's remote, so any enemy has to have a pretty formidable war chest to even get close to you. It's easy to see anyone coming (I can guarantee that the X-Club has more advanced tech than sonar, which would be enough to see subs coming). And there's very little chance of collateral damage, which was one of Cyclops's major concerns in San Francisco during "Utopia."

As for "Necrosha," it was a very well thought out plan by an enemy who was perfectly poised to attack quickly (using Blink to transport the forces close) and break down the defenses (using Cypher to hack into the defense systems and make them null). Would it be smarter for them to have a building in the middle of New York City? Or back at the mansion? Back there, anyone could disguise something like a nuke in a laundry van and get close enough to wipe them all out. Not at the island.

2) Why were Pixie and Magik seen working alongside each other recently? Pixie hates Magik! Yet in "Dark Reign: The List - X-Men" one-shot, Pixie's engaging in playful banter with Magik. It bugs me when a character that hates a character in one book likes them in another. It's a massive continuity headache!

NL: They were working alongside each other because they were ordered to do so. As for their dialogue, it all comes down to how you interpret the character, Joshua. Even though Pixie hates Magik, she tries to make the best of a situation. And I don't find it terribly hard to believe she'd try to show her up in a contest of sorts.

3) Any word on who will take over "X-Force" post-"Second Coming"?

NL: That'll be a big announcement, Joshua. When it's time, you'll hear it and have your chance to grumble about it, I'm sure.

4) I assume the X-Men are already suspicious of where X-Force members go off to on their "missions." With "Second Coming" and X-Force playing a key role, will we finally see the X-Men as a whole discovering X-Force?

NL: You are correct that they won't be able to keep it a secret forever.

5) Will M's reaction to Emplate's return be shown in "X-Factor"? As seen in X-Factor's most recent storyline, Monet still hasn't exactly gotten over being "controlled."

NL: They aren't going to be coming in contact this time around, Joshua. Sorry.

6) Will Siryn hear of her father's return in "Necrosha"?

NL: That's really up to Peter David. If he gets a chance to address it in "X-Factor" (if he even wants to do that), he will, I imagine. But knowing his big plans for "X-Factor," I don't think he'll have the room.

CBR: "Big" plans? Caleb Warren is hoping for something huge - like the size of outer space. What are the chances of that?

Are there any plans to have a story that officially crosses through the X-franchise and the cosmic corner of the Marvel U? With the X-Jammers up there and now that Beast is with S.W.O.R.D., it seems only natural…

NL: The X-Men have their hands full, but keep your fingers crossed and we may finally see that Nova/Cassandra Nova romance you've been waiting for!

CBR: The sound you hear now is hundreds of Nova fans gagging. Ick! OBrian Tallent had another question about the stars and a certain object flying the spaceways…

I'm sure I've missed this somewhere, but what was the reasoning behind Kitty Pryde being shunted off into space? Why was this decision made for such a popular character, and when will she be coming back?

NL: It was the ending of the "Astonishing X-Men" run that Joss and John wanted to do, and we thought it was heart-breaking and perfect. For us it's more about the story than anything else. As for where you can see what has been going on with Kitty and the bullet, pick up "S.W.O.R.D." #1!

CBR: Grey has questions, yes he do; Grey has questions, how about answers from you?

1) The last time we saw the Phoenix Force it was leaving Korvus and Rachel - when will this be addressed? And what about the Phoenix shards trapped inside the Cuckoo's hearts?

NL: Read "Uncanny X-Men" #517 ASAP!

2) Also, will the Mimic or Nate Grey be sticking around after Dark X-Men?

NL: You'll just have to wait and see. I don't want to spoil Paul Cornell and Leonard Kirk's story.

CBR: XMAN4life has been enjoying the multitude of mutants in the book, but doesn't want his favorites to get lost in the shuffle. Can you deal him a hand he'll like?

I love the new blood that's been put on the X-Men - and that the team is really a giant army now - but it seems like a lot of characters are falling through the cracks as far as being used. We haven't seen Hepzibah in two years, Cloak & Dagger and Dazzler seem like they are becoming background characters, and the X-Men students are coming off as the red uniform ensigns from "Star Trek." Are there any plans to correct for this? And I was wondering if the students considered actual X-Men or are just viewed as students?

NL: There are only so many hours in a day and so many pages in the X-Books. There are lots of X-characters, and not a lot of stage time. We have to make decisions on who gets more "stage time." We generally stick to the bigger characters and more central characters, but we try and service the smaller ones, too. But I'll give you some specific answers:

Hepzibah - "SWORD" #2

Cloak and Dagger - "Wolverine: Origins"

Dazzler - "Uncanny X-Men," here and there…

X-students - Dude, they're a major part of "X-Men: Legacy"! As for whether they're X-Men or students, it's kind of both. Cyclops will use them on missions, but they still do get taught stuff.

CBR: EC has been thinking about Emma Frost quite a bit - both her present and her past. How about a hint on the future?

1) Emma and Namor's involvement with Norman seems to have ended abruptly. Any chance we might see more interaction with other members of the Cabal, like Loki, Doom, or the Hood?

NL: Emma and Namor are doing their best to avoid further contact with these scary individuals. That was part of the point of betraying them.

2) I've been wondering this for a while and was hoping you could give me your thoughts on the portrayal of Emma Frost in the X-universe. She committed horrible on-panel/off-panel deeds as the White Queen, including murder - and it all appears it's been glossed over (both by the X-Men and their writers). Can stuff like that truly be forgiven and forgotten? Plus, all the crying she's done lately makes me wonder how she lasted so long as the White Queen. Thoughts?

NL: Wolverine has killed people both on purpose and by accident many more times than Emma has. One of the key tenets of the X-Men is taking in people with pasts that are less than moral and giving them second chances. That's what's going on here.

Do they like that she did those things? No. She's been working with the X-Men for a long time now (from way before "New X-Men," as the Gen X fans who've asked questions here today have noted) and has saved the world many times.

Does she sleep well at night? Probably not.

Do the X-Men trust her implicitly? Probably not all of them. Scott does. I could go on about this for hours and hours, because many of my favorite stories are redemption stories, like that of St. Paul. People who do horrible things, see the light, so to speak, and try to make up for it in any way possible. Emma is trying her hardest to make up for her past crimes and protect her people. She can't change the past, all she can do is try and do better every day.

CBR: That's it from the fans, but now it's time for our "Behind the X" segment where readers get a chance to know their X-staff a little better. So Nick, with the holidays slowly sneaking around the corner, what is your favorite holiday movie and why?

NL: My favorite holiday movie is "It's a Wonderful Life." Such a great movie, such great story-telling, such great acting. There are three specific points that make me cry every single time I watch it (which should shock you because I'm way more macho than I sound in interviews).

Resumo da entrevista com Nick Lowe:

- Não há planos para reunir a Geração X, nem para a volta de Derme e Sincro. Quanto à maior participação de Jubileu depois de Nation X #2, devemos esperar pra ver, mas ela definitivamente aparecerá mais.

- O editor não chegou a confirmar se Cable continuará depois da edição 25. Sabemos que a revista não participará de Second Coming.

- Com todas as idas e vindas do Universo Marvel, ele não sabe se o futuro de Dias de um Futuro Esquecido ainda existe. Logo, não há planos para a interação da Hope nesse futuro.

- Eles não pararão de instigar a todos os fãs quanto ao mistério de Hope estar relacionada com a volta de Jean Grey.

- Axel Alonso, editor-chefe dos títulos-X, adora Psylocke e é por isso que ela está em evidência na franquia, aparecendo em Uncanny, Legacy, Weapon X e em sua própria mini.

-Um leitor critica Ciclope: colocar os mutantes em uma ilha os torna alvos fáceis. Lowe discorda. A ilha está bem protegida e foi a melhor saída encontrada por Scott depois de Utopia. Em Necrosha, contudo, vemos como a segurança da ilha pôde ser quebrada por Doug Ramsey.

- Magia e Fada estão agindo juntas, compulsoriamente, já que Fada a odeia. Mesmo assim, elas têm um trabalho a fazer e, por isso, precisam fazer trabalho de equipe.

- Teremos grandes mudanças em X-Force após Necrosha (já sabemos que os autores deixarão a série), mas só serão anunciadas no momento certo.

- Provavelmente os X-Men tomarão conhecimento da existência da X-Force em Second Coming.

- Banshee aparece em Necrosha, mas isso não deve ter impacto em X-Factor (Syrin, sua filha, faz parte do título).

- Os X-Men estão bastante ocupados no momento para um cross com a parte cósmica da Marvel – sabemos que Fera está na série de SWORD e Destrutor e cia estão nos Piratas Siderais -, mas isso pode acontecer.

-Para saber por que os X-Men não foram atrás da Kitty, acompanhem SWORD 1.

- Para saber sobre a Força Fênix, que deixou Rachel e Korvus há algum tempo, e a parcela da Fênix que está nos corações das gêmeas Stepford, leiam UXM 517.

- Ele não revelou se X-Man e Mímico continuarão aparecendo após a mini de Dark X-Men.

- Dicas sobre alguns personagens que não têm ganhado destaque: Hepzibah – SWORD 2. Manto e Adaga – Wolverine Origins. Cristal – Uncanny X-Men. Estudantes-X – Legacy (Quanto a eles serem X-Men ou estudantes, eles são híbridos – são usados em missões, mas ainda têm muito o que aprender).

- Emma e Namor têm evitado ao máximo contato com outros membros da Cabala, já que os traíram.

Entrevista com Swierczynski sobre o arco Homecoming (“De volta para casa”, em tradução livre) em Cable.

- 13 anos se passaram, para Cable e Hope, em sua fuga pelo futuro.

- Hope disse para seu primeiro amor, Emil, que Cable não é seu pai. Ela desconhece qualquer coisa sobre seus verdadeiros pais. O que ela sabe é que foi Cable quem a criou desde que nasceu e que, no passado, ela tem um significado muito importante. Ela também tinha vagas memórias dos membros da X-Force que encontrou durante Messiah War.

- Em Cable 20, veremos um pouco de como Cable está lidando com o “relacionamento amoroso” de Emil e Hope. Nathan lida com Emil do mesmo jeito que qualquer pai lidaria com pretendentes da filha - eles precisam ter consciência de que podem ser mortos a qualquer instante se saírem da linha.

- Para Bishop, a crença de que Hope crescerá e se tornará um monstro é seu grande combustível. No próximo arco, ele perceberá que é um dos grandes responsáveis por tornar Hope quem ela é hoje – uma jovem que conhece 47 maneiras de estrangular alguém.

- O arco com a Ninhada acaba na edição 20, e depois já começa Homecoming.

- Da edição 20, vamos direto para a edição 21. As historinhas de backup da série A Girl Called Hope (“Uma menina chamada Esperança”) não são intermediárias, mas são apenas flashes da vida de Cable e Hope juntos.

- Homecoming mostrará que Hope já não agüenta mais a vida que leva, quer voltar ao passado e entrar para os X-Men. Contudo, isso é mais difícil do que se parece, pois a máquina do tempo está no braço de Bishop.

- Nos próximos meses, o passar do tempo e o desenvolvimento dos fatos serão ainda mais rápido do que foi até agora.

- Duane também fala um pouco sobre os artistas que estão escrevendo as próximas histórias: Dillon está fazendo as histórias de A Girl Called Hope, e Homecoming está a cargo de Paul Gulacy e Gabriel Guzman.

- O mote principal da série de Cable chega a um fim com Homecoming e ruma diretamente para o crossover Second Coming. Dessa maneira, a série não fará parte do cross, pois os personagens já estarão de volta ao presente. Ele não revelou o que acontecerá depois do cross – se a série será cancelada ou voltará.

- O que ele mais gostou em escrever Cable foi o desenvolvimento de Hope – de uma pequena bebê ruiva para uma menina crescida, que já se apaixonou, que enfrentou a Ninhada e se transformou em uma jovem mulher. Ele sentirá falta dela, quando... (isso mesmo, esperemos mudanças e revelações em Second Coming).
