É característica da Marvel tentar trazer histórias que reflitam o mundo real. Seguindo essa diretriz, Peter David, de maneira inesperada, trouxe o plot da homossexualidade de Shatterstar e Rictor, que ficou por muito tempo obscuro, à tona em X-Factor #45.

O editor Jody Leheup sabia que a cena causaria um certo frisson, mas não esperavam que tivesse um tremendo impacto junto aos fãs gays. Além disso, a cena foi concebida para não causar muito alarde e ser realmente algo normal, corriqueiro. De modo que o próprio autor, Peter David, afirma que não houve necessidade de aprovação da alta cúpula da editora. Ele considera que não foi precipitado trazer o assunto às páginas de X-Factor.

Um fator que adiciona mais relevância ao beijo está relacionado com os envolvidos. Shatterstar é um guerreiro de outra dimensão, onde participa de shows televisos e precisa explorar bastante seu charme e suas qualidades físicas. Já Rictor é um mexicano, que nasceu mutante, mas perdeu seus poderes no Dia M.

Como ambos os personagens não são dos mais importantes, David pôde ter mais liberdade para trabalhá-los como preferia. O escritor sabe que foi o primeiro escritor de uma grande editora a tratar abertamente do assunto, mas isso já vem cuidadosamente evoluindo há 20 anos. Shatterstar ficaria no título apenas por um arco, mas, pelo sucesso de sua aparição, ele continuou no elenco.

Como nem Shatterstar nem Rictor foram imaginados como personagens gays pelos seus criadores, muitas críticas também surgiram. Já foi sugerido anteriormente que Rictor seria bissexual, por ter tido relacionamento com mulheres, mas também havendo um certo clima entre ele e seu amigo Shatterstar. David simplesmente assumiu esse ponto como canônico.

Esse relacionamento causou bastante impacto também dentro do próprio X-Factor. Fortão foi o que aparantemente ficou mais incomodado. Apesar de ser alguém liberal, que não se importaria com o que os outros fazem dentro de quatro paredes, Guido não está muito à vontade ao imaginar um amigo beijando outro. Não é nada confortável e sua válvula de escape é fazer piadas sobre o assunto.

No fim das contas, quem mais se incomodou com o relacionamento foi Rob Liefeld, criador de Shatterstar, que postou diversos comentários contrários, por terem deturpado sua criação. Para o criador, Shattie seria mais um assexuado. David se entristeceu com as críticas, pois ninca quis ofender Rob ou seus fãs. Ele afirma que se Shatterstar estivesse envolvido com Monet, uma garota, ninguém se importaria.

David ainda brincou com a comparação que Liefeld fez. Rob comparou Shatterstar com um guerreiro grego. David então fez um comentário histórico, insinuando que o comentário de Rob corroborava o homossexualismo de Shatterstar.

O relacionamento dos dois integrantes do X-Factor continuará a ser explorado na nova fase do título. David conclama os fãs, independentemente de suas orientações sexuais, a continuarem lendo a revista.

Fraction no Newsarama:

Spoiler:


Revelation X: MATT FRACTION Talks UNCANNY & SECOND COMING

The mutants of the Marvel Universe can’t seem to catch a break, can they? March 2010 marks the beginning of the third and final chapter of the X-line’s largest crossover ever - Second Coming! Cable has returned with the mutant savior and the game is about to completely change; but, that doesn’t mean the X-Men’s world hasn’t been turning since they left. Recent events in the Uncanny X-Men have started to already change the constant evolution of the title: Henry McCoy has decided to leave and the shock ending of Uncanny #521 has had fans of the popular Marvel series talking since last Wednesday with the return of Kitty Pryde.

Newsarama contacted Uncanny scribe Matt Fraction to talk about the return of Kitty; the departure of Hank; the Second Coming event and more.

Newsarama: First things first Matt, Magneto is pulling a pretty impressive stunt to get in the good graces of the X-Men; is he really going to pull this off? Or are you tugging at the heartstrings of Kitty Pryde fans across the world?

Matt Fraction: Oh no, she’s coming back; this is the real deal. It’s not a dream, it’s not a hoax. We’re bringing her home. That said, nothing ever happens neatly; her return isn’t going to be simple and clean. Just know that this isn’t some sort of fake-out; Kitty’s return to Earth starts here and carries through Second Coming and the storyline that follows it.

Nrama: What does this mean in terms of the dynamic between Cyclops and Magneto? Is Scott going to become a believer?

Fraction: I don’t want to say that Cyclops is going to become a “believer” per se; he’s definitely going to stop second-guessing everything that Magneto does now. He’s going to start valuing his advice, his presence and his perspective in a way that he couldn’t bring himself to in the past. That was why Magneto chose to put himself through the ordeal.

Nrama: Magneto’s decisions, over the course of the X-Men’s run, seem to directly affect Colossus a lot of times. Will Kitty’s imminent return bring a little more warmth back to everyone’s favorite metal mutant?

Fraction: [laughs] It’s going to bring his girlfriend back— so yeah, his life’s going to improve, absolutely!

Nrama: Well, you did that arc last year, where Colossus kind of kicked his woes to the curb and he started kicking a lot more butt...

Fraction: It’s like I said earlier—nothing can be so simple. Peter gets Kitty back...but it’s definitely going to be complicated.

Nrama: Now, let’s take a step back; Hank McCoy has left the building; is he going to return or was this a necessary split? With the winds of change in the air, will other X-Men start to have a difference of opinion with the powers that be on the island?

Fraction: Absolutely, Second Coming is going to be one helluva crucible for the X-Men. The tension in this story, and the tension within Henry McCoy, has been building for quite some time. We’ve talked in the past about the rift forming between Scott and Hank—and how one of these men seems to have a better ethical leg or moral center to carry Xavier’s dream forward. I think the recent scene between Beast and Iceman really kind of brought this idea home; because of who Hank is to the team. I think now that he’s gone—his absence is going to put the team in a very precarious place.

Nrama: Will the X-Club carry on without McCoy’s guidance? Is Dr. Nemesis the natural leader of the X-Men’s think-tank?

Fraction: I think so, yeah. I think Nemesis is the crabbiest—and an aggressive-aggressive type in a room full of passive-aggressive types usually tends to take charge.

Nrama: Continuing on that train of thought, the “Second Coming” is upon us; what sort of bedlam is about to befall the Children of the Atom?

Fraction: Bedlam? I’m not sure if that’s quite the term I’d use right away—Hope is back and she’s what everyone has been hoping and waiting for...and everything suddenly happens. Just be careful what you wish for. Let me put it this way: Scott isn’t the only one who has been praying for Hope’s return.

Nrama: It seems as though Bastion seems to be pulling all the strings during Second Coming; will any of his group of mutant-hating baddies have the spotlight in your portion of the event? Do you have any personal favorites in this group of villains?

Fraction: I think Bastion is because he’s such a badass. He’s been a lot of fun to write because he’s this ultra uber-organized, calculating villain—and his plans are kind of multi-tendrilled. He’s all over the place and he’s a lot of fun.

Nrama: It’s been noted in Marvel’s solicit material that an X-Man is about to be pushing up daisies; did you have a hand in that decision? What kinds of factors do you weigh when you’re preparing to pull the trigger on a character?

Fraction: Yeah, we discussed who to kill at the last X-editorial summit, the Second Coming editorial retreat, last summer—and it was hard...really hard. This is a real character, a big character; there are several casualties over the course of Second Coming but this one is one of the biggest casualties to come along in a long time.

It was hard! It’s a fan-favorite character. It’s one of my favorite characters. It’s somebody I enjoy writing—it’s somebody I’d like to stick around so I can write them again; but I guess it’s time, you know? I saw how this character’s death could be such a big story; there’s a lot of weight and gravity to the loss—it’s going to make this book kind of enormous and very real. It wasn’t an easy task. I saw what was coming and it’s really become one of those “kill your darlings” kinds of moments.

I wrote the funeral scene a couple of weeks back and it was just really depressing and difficult; the feelings I was having while writing the scene let me know that this was the right direction to take these characters and books. I can’t say this enough, it feels enormous. One of my favorite heroes gets a heroes’ death and we’re going to be dealing with the aftermath of that for a very long time to come.

Nrama: John Sublime’s presence has been felt in the book recently; how vital are characters like Sublime in their role as 21st century villains for the X-Men?

Fraction: I think you have to grow them out old ideas and when you can bring something forward—say from the legendary Claremont run, for instance—then it’s a really good thing. Sublime is a great character and an amazing idea. I wanted to explore it more.

Nrama: One word: Fantomex.

Fraction: Awesome!

Nrama: [laughs] Wow, that was fast! He seemed like much more of a team player recently...

Fraction: [laughs] Yeah, he’s around—he’s here. Yeah, he’s now one of the pieces on the table.

Nrama: Do the X-Men need a new “big bad”? There are the haters, the genetic supremacists, so on and so forth? What’s lurks beyond the periphery?

Fraction: Yeah, I think they do. There always needs to be fresh blood in this book, you know? This is a book about evolution and the constant state of flux it’s in. It’s really easy to get trapped into the repetitive nature of some of these stories so there’s always a need for more villains. You can always recalibrate, reintroduce, and revamp too, you know? I think that guys like Sublime and Bastion are kind of a part of that developing process; the mythology of these characters tends to consistently change the dynamic—whether it’s a new “big bad” or the return or redevelopment of an older character.

Nrama: How long do you see yourself writing Uncanny? Is it a dream job? Or is it harder than it seems?

Fraction: Well, dream jobs can be hard sometimes-- for me, a dream job isn’t a dream job if it’s not challenging. So yes, it’s a dream job, but a lot of that is because it’s a challenge. Looking at what I’ve done so far, I’m at about the halfway point for the plans I had for this book and these characters; so, hopefully, I’ll be writing it for a while. That’s the plan as of today, right now.

You never know though, someone else might have other plans and things might change tomorrow. For now, however, I like where I’m at and I’d like to continue to write this book; I have a lot of stories I’d still like to tell—but I felt that way about The Order too! I’m not planning on going anywhere. [laughs]

Nrama: To close up, a couple of years ago, the creators of the X-books were saying that Messiah CompleX was the start of even darker times for the mutants on the Marvel Universe. Second Coming is the final act in the trilogy; are all gloves off this time? When the ashes settle, what will be left of mutantkind?

Fraction: Well, I can’t say that because it would ruin the end of the story; the current direction for the book is coming to an end—and it’s a big #$%ing deal. This is the biggest story I’ve ever been a part of and it offers more than just a superficial change. It’s bigger than, “Oh Cyclops is in charge now,” or some sort of superficial shift—this is a core change, it’s going to be a dramatic evolution for a book about evolution. Second Coming is the X-Men’s Book of Revelation.

O mundo mutante vai sacudir em março, como todos os X-fãs já estão esperando, com a estréia do maior crossover da história dos mutantes: Second Coming. A volta da messias mutante, juntamente com Cable, para o presente, significa que o jogo virou – mas não para melhor.

O escritor do principal título da franquia, Matt Fraction, foi entrevistado pelo Newsarama a respeito do evento, da volta de Kitty, da partida de Hank McCoy, entre outros assuntos que povoam as histórias de Uncanny X-Men.

Kitty está de volta e não é apenas um sonho de seus fãs. A volta vai definitivamente acontecer, mas não será fácil. Os desdobramentos poderão ser vistos durante e depois de Second Coming. Esse ato de Magneto fará com que a confiança de Scott nele cresça e o líder dos X-Men dará maior valor aos seus conselhos e sua presença.

Quem mais espera a volta de Kitty é seu namorado, Peter. Contudo, as coisas também não serão fáceis para o Colossus.

Outra importante mudança no elenco recente dos X-Men foi a saída de Hank McCoy, o Fera. No crossover que está por vir, teremos mais X-Men descontentes com o direcionamento que a equipe está tomando. Quanto à posição de liderança no X-Club, Dr. Nemesis assumiu o posto que outrora era de McCoy.

Fraction garantiu que Esperança realmente era quem os X-Men estavam esperando, mas o desenrolar de Second Coming foi muito rápido. Ele pediu para os leitores ficaram atentos, pois não era só Scott quem esperava pelo retorno. Será que Bastion também aguardava a volta da messias? Ele é um vilão muito calculista e organizado, e seus planos são muito pulverizados.

A decisão sobre matar um X-Men na saga foi decidida no último verão, em reunião editorial. O escolhido para morrer é alguém muito importante e a morte será uma das maiores conseqüências dessa guerra. Fraction é fã do personagem e gosta de escrevê-lo. A cena do funeral foi realmente depressiva.

Voltando para Uncanny, ele adora os personagens Sublime e Fantomex que estão aparecendo no arco atual. Sublime é um dos vilões novos, do século XXI, e mostra que a galeria de inimigos dos X-Men está indo além daqueles clássicos implantados por Claremont. Os X-Men são quadrinhos que lidam com a constante evolução e nada melhor do que isso ficar explícito pelos vilões, evitando que as histórias se tornem repetitivas.

Escrever Uncanny é um trabalho dos sonhos para o autor, pois é algo desafiante. Ele reiterou que ainda está apenas na metade do que pretende fazer no título.

Por fim, garantiu que realmente, ao final de Second Coming, os X-Men terão a maior mudança de suas vidas. Muito maior do que, simplesmente, por exemplo, Ciclope ter assumido total responsabilidade sobre a equipe ou qualquer mudança nos personagens que compõem o grupo principal. Vai ser uma evolução dramática para a equipe. Second Coming é o Livro da Revelação dos X-Men.

X-Position com Kieron Gillen:

Spoiler:


We start things off with a few words from Rothman, who wants to know how you worked through the four stages of grief...
1) At what point did you find out that your series was cancelled? Where were you in terms of scripting the series, and how many issues had you planned out?


My standard answer is "before it was announced." I think I had scripted three issues by that point. The first arc was sorted out in a beat-for-beat basis. I knew the shape of the arcs going onwards towards issue #12. Or #17. That's the sort of length I was keeping in my head.

2) What was your initial reaction to finding out the series had been cancelled? Were you angry at readers, editorial, or the universe?

I was clearly saddened, but I tended to be sanguine. Well, sanguine with a big helping good old fashioned English fatalism. Launching an ongoing at any time is tricky, and the current climate makes that even harder. I'd already mentally worked myself up into a "we-are-the-walking-dead-shunned-by-the-universe-and-will-be-persecuted-by-strangers" state, so I was expecting the worst.
But I tried not to be angry. Occasionally, stuff is beyond your control, and I try to believe that good work eventually gets rewarded. And...oh, this is dealt with in the next question. I'll skip on to that.

3) How difficult was it to craft an ending for your story considering how few pages you had left?

It was fine. Basically, we'd planned for success and planned for disaster. The first arc sets up all the characters and our status quo, sure...but it's also a considered single narrative which comes to a conclusive ending. So if it went fantastically, we'd be able to spin out from that, and if the worst happened, we wouldn't leave anyone unsatisfied.

In other words, I haven't changed a single panel from what I originally planned. It would have made a neat start to an ongoing. Now it's going to be a neat little mini. Hopefully people will dig it.

4) Do you know if S.W.O.R.D. will have any kind of presence in "Siege" or the "Heroic Age?"

You'd have to ask the X-Editors on that particular one. They're not in "Siege" as far as I know - it's not exactly their area of expertise, after all - but I'd be surprised if S.W.O.R.D. isn't used down the line in the "Heroic Age." It fills a really interesting place in the Marvel Universe. So Sez I. Do not question me!
X-Editor Nick Lowe: No one loves S.W.O.R.D. more than this editor and I challenge any comers to a Sloppy Joe eating contest to prove it! If we can figure something out that would do S.W.O.R.D. justice and not just feel like a nostalgia piece, we're going to try.

Look at that, Rothman - you managed to invoke the presence of an X-Editor. Nice work!
Ryan Lindsay has some ideas for keeping "S.W.O.R.D." on life support. What do you say?
Kieron, I absolutely love your (now sadly small) run on "S.W.O.R.D." You gave us all something new and that couldn't be found anywhere else. I liked having this diversity in the X-titles, but I guess it didn't work out. Bummer. I hope to see you on another awesome title really soon.


Thank you. I love having the opportunity to do it.

I was wondering if you think there would be any merit in Marvel turning this book into an ongoing webcomic? I would love to see this happen with "S.W.O.R.D.," and it could be a great way to gain readers before eventually relaunching. What do you think?

Well, the problem with this question is that I see merit in all sort of lunatic things. I see merit in Marvel diverting funds into an enormous statue of Steve and I and depositing it in the New York Harbor, entitling it "The Statue of Awesomeosity." This is why I'm not an editor.
But yeah, that's certainly something that would be interesting. It really depends on how Marvel thinks the response to the book went. If people like it, they should make it clear they liked it - and then editors will have a little to think about in how they can work out a way to make it commercially viable.
I certainly dig writing webcomics, and would love to do one.

Well, if a webcomic isn't possible, I hope they'll give that statue idea a try. I'd come and give it a visit!
As your intergalactic book is all about the various planets among the stars, Adam wants to know if another X-book's direction affected your title's trajectory...
Did Matt Fraction's plans to bring back Kitty affect any of the stories you had planned for "S.W.O.R.D.?" It seemed that you were starting to head down that path...


Nope. It didn't change anything - I knew going in what Matt was doing with Kitty. That short story I did with Jamie "Loving Lips" McKelvie was more about dealing with the question of "Why hasn't anyone tried to rescue Kitty properly," which was on everyone's minds. If we went past issue #5, I suspect we'd have tried to tie in to what Matt's doing, if only after the main event. Clearly, Lockheed's going to react strongly. Also, Jack Daniels share price will sharply dip as he stops consuming a bottle an hour or thereabouts.

Abby wants to know more about Abigail's future...wait, are we in a mobius loop?
1) Will we see more of Abigail Brand in the near future? She is an amazing character and I absolutely love her...


You're going to make Beast jealous. Hands off! She's his.
Hopefully, would be my answer. She's a great character, and I can't believe she's going to be left alone for long.


2) Where will the Beast be going after this series is over? Hank is such a nice person, and I think Cyclops needs someone who will tell him on the straight and narrow.

Cyclops certainly needs a slap around the head occasionally, and Beast's got the enormous blue paws to do the job.
Of course, you're assuming that he survives. The Drenx have totally got them surrounded. The final issue is going to be that much-hyped Drenx celebratory conga. Conga! Conga!

3) With the conclusion of the series, does this mean Hank and Abigail's romance is over too?

Stop it. You'll make me cry.

Andre4000 might have a hanky for you. In exchange though, he wants to know more about those tales you didn't get to tell...
1) Were there any stories that you had planned that you're disappointed that you didn't get to tell? Can you give us any hint on what those stories were?


Oh, totally. Not getting to do Abigail Brand's origin is one nags. Beast's visit to Brand's dad's home planet. And there was the cover I'd have loved to have done around issue #10, which would have just been Unit's cell, with the door open and nothing else...and by that point, that would be about the most sinister thing we could possibly show.

2) You briefly mentioned the Celestial in issue #3 - were you ever going to tackle that topic?

No specific plans, but it was something that I did have my eye on. Having a figure of that size on the surface of the planet is one of the big, obvious differences between our Earth and the Marvel Universe Earth. It's something which we could have done a lot with.

3) We met Abigail's brother - do you have her whole family tree worked out? Where will this information go now that the series is done?

The core family, yes. Basically, from Joss' notes on Abigail's origins, I hammered out a document on that sort of thing and sent it off to Nick Lowe. So I'd imagine that information is sitting on Nick's hard drive. And mine too, for that matter.

4) Was the robot Unit's story supposed to be stretched out longer? Or did you always plan on revealing his origin so early? He seems like he'd be a great character to throw into Lanning and Abnett's galactic books - is there any chance they'll do that?

I'd agree that he'd fit in there - in fact, there's a bit where he insults Thanos in the last issue which the Titan would probably take badly. Unit's a character-idea I had for quite a few years, and I decided to lob into the Marvel Universe because he really doesn't make any sense outside of this sort of enormous fictional construct.
I'm a big believer in both using the toys that are available and leaving new ones for other people to use - Unit's the obvious main one, but there's a number of new aliens from S.W.O.R.D.: Atlantean mutant Crosta and something else which shows up in my "Siege: Loki" and "New Mutants" issues. I'd be enormously pleased if anyone saw some worth in them and had a play. Seeing Fraction write Crosta certainly made me grin.
But I didn't plan to stretch it out any more - though believing Unit's being entirely truthful in any exchange is probably a bad idea. He's the sort of character who makes most sense when people get a grasp of why he's motivated to do what he does. It's like Magneto wouldn't be nearly as interesting if you didn't realize what was making him tick. Unit's motivation is absolutely key, which...oh, this ties into the final issue. Spoilers! Etc.

5) Can you tell us where we can find your writing or Steven Sanders art in the (hopefully) near future?

I'm not sure what Steve is up to next, but I'd love to work with him again. I'm already missing the daily shouting matches on AIM. I need more stress in my life. For me...well, I'm still writing "Thor" until Mr. Fraction takes over with #611. I'm doing the "Siege" tie-in for "New Mutants." I'm doing a story with Frazer Irving in "The Mystic Hands of Dr. Strange." Oh, and the "Siege: Loki" special. That's all that's public with Marvel, but hopefully I'll be able to talk about something else soon. Well, hopefully for me, not so hopefully for the rest of the world. When I start talking, the world fears death by yabber.
Oh, and my own indie lovechild should have its second trade out in a couple of weeks: "Phonogram: The Singles Club." Emily Aster is my audition piece for writing the White Queen. Truth!

If any X-fans want to work up a comparison of the two characters, post it in the forums and let us know!
Well, we're done with reader emails for the day, but before we go, it's time for some "Behind the X" fun. Kieron, our "get-to-know-you" question of the week is specially crafted for a British citizen such as yourself: in your opinion, which actor has made the best James Bond in the movies?


My girlfriend and I had a cheery argument about this last night. I told her my answer, and she noted that's just what anyone who hasn't really thought about the question says, and it's just submitting to the consensus opinion. And I suspect she's probably right. I hate that!
Anyway, Sean Connery .
(Though in the brief few pages I wrote Namor - when thinking about the character - Daniel Craig walking out of the sea in "Casino Royale" was who I was keeping in mind for the attitude of the King of Atlantis. Which is worth a mention, just for local colour.)

SWORD foi cancelada na quinta edição que sai esse mês nos Estados Unidos. Os fãs devem estar com muitas dúvidas e o escritor Kieron Gillen se dispôs a responder algumas delas.

Ele já tinha posto no papel mais três edições e já planejava o que faria nas 12 (ou 17) primeiras edições do título. Com o cancelamento, ele realmente ficou bastante triste, mas tentou não transformar isso em raiva, pois compreende que nem sempre tudo está sob o seu controle e ele procura acredita que o bom trabalho é recompensado.

Como sempre se deve estar preparado para o sucesso ou o fracasso, mesmo com tão poucas edições, não foi difícil fazer o final. Ele não mudou nada do que já tinha escrito para essas cinco edições. Se o título continuasse, partiria exatamente daquele ponto.

Ele não sabe se a SWORD terá alguma presença em Siege ou na Era Heróica, mas ele ficará surpreso se ela não aparecer essa nova fase que se anuncia no Universo Marvel.
Um leitor sugeriu que o título continuasse a sair como um webcomic. Gillen achou interessante e disse que adoraria ter a oportunidade de fazer isso, mas que depende de como a Marvel enxerga a recepção do título junto aos seus leitores e se isso será viável comercialmente.

Algo que foi bastante comentado era que Kitty poderia ter voltado em SWORD, mas está voltando agora em Uncanny X-Men. Gillen sabia dos planos de Fraction e, se o título dele passasse das cinco edições, ele esperava poder fazer um tie-in da volta de Kitty, afinal Lockheed reagiria intensamente com o retorno da amiga.

Ele espera que a Agente Brand volte a aparecer em breve e acredita que ela não será deixada de lado por muito tempo. Ele ainda falou que Scott necessita de alguém como Hank ao seu lado, mas isso se o Fera sobreviver à última edição. E o romance entre Hank e Brand pode estar com os dias contados.

Gillen gostaria de ter escrito mais histórias, por exemplo, sobre a origem de Brand (e mais de sua família) e, talvez, algo envolvendo os Celestiais. O autor também acha que Unit poderia se encaixar nos títulos cósmicos da dupla DNA, assim como outros personagens podem ser aproveitados nos mais diversos títulos da editora.

O escritor continuará escrevendo Thor até que Fraction assuma o título e fará o tie-in dos Novos Mutantes em Siege e o especial do Loki na saga.

Entrevista com o Tieri sobre Wolverine: Mr. X

http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=25153

Spoiler:

What happens when the irresistible force meets the unkillable object? Writer Frank Tieri posed that question in 2001 in issue #159 of Marvel Comics “Wolverine ” series. It was the issue where he introduced the world to the mysterious Mr. X, a sadistic, highly skilled serial killer with telepathic abilities that allow him to anticipate and counter his opponent's fighting moves. In his first appearance, X set his sights on taking down Wolverine, and the adamantium enhanced X-Man only beat the mind-reading super killer by giving into his animalistic berserker rage, which kept Mr. X from anticipating his moves.
Unlike many of his opponents, Mr. X was able to walk away from his encounter with Wolverine. Most Recently, X offered his skills to Norman Osborn, and Osborn offered him him a spot on his covert wetworks team, the Thunderbolts. X is currently one of the stars of “Thunderbolts,” but he never forgives, and he never forgets a loss. He'll be looking to avenge one of his earliest defeats in the one-shot “Wolverine: Mr. X” by Tieri and artist Paco Diaz, which is in stores this week. CBR News spoke with Tieri about the project.
CBR News: Frank, you created Mr. X almost nine years ago. How did it feel to have the character step back into the mainstream Marvel U with “Thunderbolts”? And how does it feel coming back to the character after all these years?


Frank Tieri: Geez, it’s hard to believe it’s been that long ago. Especially since it seemed like I was on the verge of getting a Mr. X project off the ground just about every other month after my “Wolverine run. It just never panned out for various reasons--that is, until Andy Diggle decided to use him in “Thunderbolts.” So I guess to answer your question about how I felt about X being used in Tbolts? Well, I figure I owe Andy a debt of gratitude (and probably a beer or two) because I don’t know if we’d be talking about Mr. X and this project unless Andy revived interest in him like he did. So yeah, I’m very happy others have started to see potential in the guy. Maybe a long time coming, but better late than never.
But even with all that said, more than anything, I’m thrilled that I myself get to write him again. When you create a character, it’s my opinion nobody really knows that character– who he is, his origins, what you had planned for him, etc—like you do. So like I said, while you should certainly want other people to use said character (if nothing else because that’s the only way a he’s going to take off), it’s still special when you yourself get to play with that old toy again.

From talking with fellow readers it seems like Mr. X is a character that fans really have strong feelings about. They either love or love to hate him. What is it about the character that you think engenders such feelings?

Hey, whatever the case, it’s always better for fans to have strong feelings about a character rather than have no feelings at all. And yeah, I’d say even if those feelings are hate.
As for why the reason for the love/ hate thing, well, he’s a serial killer who goes around beating up on the top fighters in the Marvel U – everybody from Wolverine to Taskmaster. Now either you find that really cool or – since a lot of those characters are fan favorites (believe me, nobody likes their favorite characters catch an ass whuppin’) – you probably don’t.
Either way, if he’s the character people love to hate, so be it. I’m perfectly fine with that.

Since X is part of the Thunderbolts he's about to be plunged into the thick of “Siege.” When does “Wolverine: Mr. X” take place in relation to that? Does this story happen before X joined the Thunderbolts? While he's a member? Or is this a story set during Marvel's upcoming “Heroic Age”?

This story shows us what the hell X has been doing since his last encounter with Wolverine during the Bloodsport in Madripoor, right up until he joins the Thunderbolts. In fact, I say we’ll get a pretty good idea of what drove him to eventually join the Tbolts in the first place.

It seems like X is a guy obsessed with the telepathic high he gets from killing people. So what is it like for him to have faced and lost a battle against Wolverine, a foe who's very difficult to kill? Is it extremely frustrating? Has it lit a fire under him? Or has it made an already violent psychopath even more deranged?

Obsessed is the key word here. (although deranged ain’t exactly a bad word to use either) Remember, X has spent his whole life becoming the world’s greatest killing machine. He’s never lost before. Which means, this loss to Wolvie? It’s absolutely consumed him. He just can’t deal with it.
And as our story shows, he doesn’t intend to deal with it for much longer. He will do anything and everything to assure that Wolvie gives him a rematch, as Logan is quick to discover.

Last time you had Wolverine and Mr. X square off in the ring of a bloodsport tournament. What locales will play a role in their rematch?

There’s a key face-off scene between the two with a tied up kindergarten class and a lighted match that’s pretty damned disturbing but the main, climatic battle actually takes place at NY’s Museum of Natural History. It’s really one of my favorite places in the world and I thought it would be a cool place for these two lunatics to try to kill the crap out of each other. Especially since I set it in the warriors wing of the museum so there’s plenty of fun stuff like axes and blowguns and pirate hooks that come into play.

What can you tell me about the supporting cast of this story? Do any of Mr. X or Wolverine's allies appear? Or is this book all about the two of them going at it one on one?

Editor Jeanine Schaefer thought it best if X didn’t involve any of his usual entourage—so no T & A, not even Blok. Her reasoning was that this time should be different between Wolvie and X. That X would want it to be crisp and clean between them this time. No chance for interference, just him and Logan mano a mano.
And of course, like she usually is, she was 100% right. So nothing here but Mr. X, Logan and a head in a box. Oh wait--I did mention the head in the box, didn’t I?

You're working with your “Wolverine Vs. Thor” collaborator Paco Diaz on this story. What can readers expect from his work on “Wolverine: Mr. X”?

Paco does a great job here although he goes quite a bit grittier than in “Wolverine Vs. Thor”— mainly because he had to, I suppose. In addition to the head in the box and the hostage kindergarten class, the final fight itself gets a little on the— shall we say —ungentlemanly side.

How ungentlemanly?

Very. Body parts missing- level ungentlemanly.

You’ve said in the past that Wolverine doesn’t like to face X – why in particular is that?

He’s afraid – and no, not of X himself but of what X represents. X to Logan is what Wolvie fears he could become if left unchecked. We know how Wolvie tries his best to keep his inner demons in check but X just freely lets them out to play.
I’ve always felt fighting guys like X or Sabretooth makes Wolvie a little uncomfortable because he understands them a little TOO well, if you know what I’m saying.

Last time we talked you mentioned that there would be some more Mr. X work in your future after this one shot. Is there anything you can say about your issue of “Deadpool Team Up” with Mr. X?

Not yet. It’s really too soon. But what I will say is I wouldn’t exactly label Deadpool and X’s encounter as a “team up”.

Any other Marvel projects you can hint or tease at?

In addition to the “Deadpool Team Up” thing, I’m also revisiting my ol’ merc with a mouth pal in the “Breaking Into Comics the Marvel Way” project. It’s a story that has DP in a super market killing the beegezus out of a messload of people—although more than meets the eye might actually be going on here.
Also, in addition to some other Marvel stuff too early to talk about, I’m writing a video game—a pretty big one at that—that’s due to get announced fairly soon, so everybody should keep their ears open for that.

Anything else to add about “Wolverine: Mr. X”?

I will say this: I don’t think a lot of people will see the ending coming. It’s not your typical ending for something like this, but when you think about it, it really makes all the sense in the world. And I’ll just leave it at that.

Frank Tieri está de volta para escrever um dos personagens que mais marcaram sua carreira: Wolverine. No especial Mr. X, que chega às comic shops americanas nessa semana, o autor, ao lado do desenhista Paco Diaz, coloca Logan frente a frente com o personagem título, o sádico serial killer com habilidades telepáticas, que figurou por algum tempo na revista do mutante canadense, no começo dos anos 2000.

Recentemente, Mr. X ofereceu suas habilidades para Osborn, que o realocou nos Thunderbolts. O personagem, porém, não se esqueceu da derrota que sofreu para Wolverine e agora está buscando vingança.

Tieri resolveu revisitar o personagem, depois que Andy Diggle decidiu utilizá-lo em seus Thunderbolts. Por isso, o autor está bastante contente que Mr. X tenha despertado o interesse de outros escritores da editora.

Mr. X é um personagem intenso: ou os leitores o amam ou o odeiam. É um serial killer que enfrenta os grandes lutadores do Universo Marvel.

O especial mostrará o que X fez desde o último encontro com Logan em Madripoor, até a sua entrada para os Thunderbolts, identificando as razões pelas quais ele decidiu se juntar ao grupo.

Ele está obcecado por poder enfrentar Wolverine novamente e conseguir sua vingança. Foi treinado a vida toda para ser a maior máquina mortífera que o mundo já viu, sem perder uma única batalha, até que Logan apareceu em seu caminho. Ele não consegue mais viver com tamanha obsessão e fará de tudo para que Wolverine conceda uma revanche. E dessa vez será no Museu de História Natural de NYC, um mano a mano sem a participação de nenhum outro personagem importante.
Mr. X é um dos vilões que mais assusta Wolverine, principalmente pelo que o inimigo representa: é uma amostra do que seria de Wolvie se ele estivesse descontrolado, à mercê de seus demônios pessoais.
Tieri também comentou que Mr. X aparece em Deadpool Team Up, não necessariamente em uma parceria (tradução literal de “team up”) com o Mercenário Tagarela.

X-Position com Mike Carey:

Spoiler:


A good way to begin is with these kind words from WhitePhoenix. Let's see if these help us to ply the secrets Mr. Carey holds within his head...
You're brilliant! That is quite simply the best way to put it. I've collected comics for years, have numerous encyclopedias on Marvel's history of the X-Men, and I would fancy myself a connoisseur of all things X-Men. And honestly, your handling of the history of the X-Men is astounding. You not only are able to recall seemingly random bits of historical context from years long since gone, but your ability to fit them into current storylines continues to amaze me.
Thanks again for keeping "X-Men: Legacy" full of tight storylines, neat endings for loose threads, and being an overall great guy. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future. Now that I've said that, I'd like to ask you some questions:

1) I'm a huge fan of Matt Fraction and his ability to commandeer and control so many X-Men characters in "Uncanny X-Men," but I find his writing quite different from yours. Although both you and he are very enjoyable to read for different reasons, I was wondering why you've chosen to use a smaller number of X-characters in your stories and how you decide which characters to use?



Thanks for the vote of confidence, WhitePhoenix. I'm really glad you're enjoying the books. Plus, I'm forwarding your email to Nick with a request that he double my page rate!
In terms of casting, one of the big changes in the X-Men books over the last few years is a huge increase in diversity. All the front-line books now - and all the satellite books too, for that matter - have a unique take on the X-verse and a unique flavor. Coming out of "Messiah CompleX," when Rogue's X-Men team imploded, we saw the opportunity for a new approach which would rotate different solo characters into the spotlight, while at the same time drawing on the full range of X-Men continuity and X-Men rosters. As you know, we started with Professor X and have now come back around to Rogue. It seems to be a formula that works, and it's immensely enjoyable to write.
As with X-Men back when it was both adjectiveless and suffixless, I tend to choose characters on the basis of two things: best fit for the story and personal interest. I try to use characters who I think I can voice effectively, but I also try to keep in mind how personalities (and powers) will interact. Picking a team to go up against Proteus was crazy fun.

2) With "Second Coming" coming up (no pun intended), I know you have to be pretty tight-lipped about the comings and goings of the different characters in all the X-titles. But I'm wondering, in the post-"Second Coming" era, will you still be writing "X-Men: Legacy" (if it's still called that), and if you are, will you continue to keep to a smaller roster or might you be taking on characters from some of the other X-books?

The short answer would be both. The core cast will continue to be small and select, but you can expect appearances (and not just cameos) from many major mutants.

Prodigial is all about the process. Maybe you can assist him by shining some light on yours, Professor Carey.
1) I am wondering if you can give some insight as to the process of writing action with all the different artists you work with. Do you know who the artist is going to be beforehand? Do you keep in mind what these artists can do? Or do you just write what's needed and hope for the best?


I always know who the artist will be, Prodigial, and I usually try to reflect that in the scripting. Obviously you get the best results after two or three arcs, when the creative team has bedded in together (gardening metaphor, not a revelation about our love lives). But to some extent, you can play to an artist's strengths from square one if you know their stuff.
The Empath arc was always going to hinge on creepy atmospherics as much as on character and action, and having Daniel Acuňa on art allowed me to play that to the hilt - weird settings, quirky and slightly sinister period detail, chiaroscuro, the works. With Clay Mann on the "Necrosha" arc, I opened up and put in some spectacular battle scenes, because he choreographs action so beautifully. The story has its own momentum and its own logic, but you can still consciously use what the artist brings to the table.

2) Rogue was hinted to have a close friendship with Cannonball during her early days at the school. Any interest in expanding on this?

Returning to it, yes; expanding...it depends what you mean, really. I think Rogue counts Sam as one of her closest friends and confidants among the X-Men. I'm not convinced that could ever turn into a different kind of affection. Way back in "X-Men" #188, she described Sam and Bobby as "solid gold." That's how you'd describe a really good friend who you know will always be there for you. It doesn't suggest that her feelings for him run in a romantic direction. Of course, having said that, as some French guy said, "the heart has its reasons."

Joshua Hetherington has a suggestion about another pairing with Rogue. What do you say?
1) With Ms. Marvel's series cancelled, could we possibly see Rogue have a reunion with her former opponent?


That would be a cool beat to write, Joshua, but I'd probably want to steer clear of it for awhile. We had Rogue fight "Dark Ms. Marvel" in "X-Men: Legacy," and we also revisited some of her earlier encounters with Ms. Marvel pretty extensively in the "Salvage" arc. I'd want the dust to settle on those scenes first.

2) I've been meaning to ask - just how many of the Marauders lived after "Messiah CompleX?" And will any of the Marauders be making appearances during "Second Coming?" /[b]

I'd say most of them are still out there, in varying degrees of battle-fitness and varying mental states, but we're not going to be revisiting them in "Second Coming." The narrative focus is somewhere else entirely.

[b] 3) Why did you choose to kill off Destiny again? Why would Cypher be able to stay in the land of the living, but Destiny couldn't?


Cypher was a special case, of course, in that both Warlock and Magik were involved in breaking him free from Selene's influence and allowing him to become an autonomous entity again. But that's only part of the answer, obviously, because it would have been possible to arrange some similar confluence of events and influences for Destiny. So the other half of the answer is that we thought the story - and the character interactions - felt better served by this ending.
The point, for us, was never to bring Destiny back into continuity. It was to kick-start this plot and then to play out its human and emotional implications in the codas. Having Destiny just say "And now I'm home" would have felt wrong in the context of the story we'd just told.

Chrissstopher also wants to know about Destiny. Maybe you could tell us what the future holds in store...
You also wrote a great scene between Rogue and Destiny, which was awesome to see (but too bad Destiny had to go). Also, you gave us a great reveal about Destiny's connection to Blindfold, but can you give us any clue about Blindfold's brother? Do we know him already? /[b]

Hi Chrissstopher! No, he's not a character we've already met. He's a character I'd like us to meet in the future. His nature is very different from his sister's; his powers are not a million miles away from hers, but...nasty.

[b] Taimur Dar wants to see more of Blindfold (ironically, Blindfold thought the same thing when she stood in front of a mirror this morning)...
1) Will Blindfold continue to have a role in "X-Men: Legacy?"


Intermittently, Taimur. As with all the younger mutants, the aim is to have a rotating cast with Rogue as the lynchpin.

2) If you were given a chance to bring a character back during "Necrosha" and keep them around, who would you have wanted to bring back?

I always have mixed feelings about resurrections. I'd say Moira. It would be hard to do it so it felt right and satisfying, but it would be so cool to have her around again.

Speaking of things you'd like to do, UncannyScott had a query for you:
1) Is there anything that you have wanted to do in "Legacy" thus far that hasn't worked out because of things happening in other X-titles? What do you do with those kinds of unused ideas?


Not in "Legacy," Scott. Back when we were just "X-Men," I had a story idea involving Cassandra Nova, but it would have been right up against Joss's story in "Astonishing," so there was no way it could happen and make sense. I think that's the only time we've been stymied in that way. Normally what I do is to find a different way into the story, and that's what happened in that case: it became the "Condition Critical/Red Data" arc, rewritten to take Cassandra out of the equation.

2) Using past continuity to build upon characters is something you are well-known for during your time on this title. Is there any area from the X-past you haven't touched yet that you really want to delve into at some point?

Hmmm. Good question. Okay, this is a small point, but I've tried a few times to bring Professor X's relationship with Sage into the mix, but those scenes have always ended up on the cutting room floor because of space or story logic. I'd like to have got that reference in, but I'm not sure I'll ever find the right confluence of circumstances.

Irma Cuckoo is interested in the technical aspects of mutant abilities (and wants to test your knowledge of video games, apparently).
Could Bling's powers theoretically work the same way Marrow's does? Would she be able to accomplish the feats Marrow did in Marvel vs. Capcom 2 game?


You mean, making specialized bone weapons? I'm not sure, Irma. I wouldn't rule it out, but it would be a long way down the line. Bling's power manifests itself in a much more explosive and uncontrollable way.

Our last email of the day comes from Rajiv Mote, who's hoping you might have some dark desires that you're willing to share with us.
You have a knack for writing creepy villains like Sinister and Emplate. What other villains would you like to get your hands on? I'd love to see your take on the Dark Beast, this world's Sugar Man or - with "Legacy" now focusing on the young mutants - a revamped Nanny and Orphan-Maker with a credible back-story...


I loved writing Dark Beast for "Endangered Species," Rajiv - two Hanks together made for some great moments. Beyond that...I've never written Mojo and Spiral (well, I put Spiral in a couple of panels once) and that would have a lot of appeal for me. It would also be great to bring the X-Men up against Doctor Doom again.

And now, it's time to go "Behind the X" and have you reveal a little fun fact about yourself that X-fans might not otherwise know. Today's captivating question is...what were your favorite cartoon shows to watch while you were growing up?

Oh, man, that would be a long list. I was always a cartoon addict. Probably the earliest I can remember watching regularly was Marine Boy, who chewed Oxy-gum so he could breathe underwater, and had a dolphin called...I don't remember. Flipper, or Nipper, or something. By modern standards, it was crude fare with lots of static shots that used camera zoom and pan to give the illusion of movement, but it was sci-fi and it was on TV so I loved it, in the same way I loved "Lost in Space" and "The Outer Limits."
After that...well, the Hanna-Barbera stable, which in those days would have been the Flintstones , Top Cat, Scooby-Doo and so on. For some reason, I never saw the Jetsons. Then there were a bunch of 70s shows that I watched but felt I was already getting too old for - Hong Kong Phooey, the Hair Bear Bunch, Funky Phantom and so on. Tom and Jerry was always a favorite.
Also, in the UK at that time, there was a show called Disney Time; they'd broadcast it on all the major public holidays. It was a collection of clips from Disney movies, and since the cinema wasn't a big part of my childhood, that was the only form in which I saw them. Oh, and the cartoon bits of the Banana Splits - the Arabian Knights and the Three Musketeers. And Ali Bongo's Cartoon Carnival. I was a cartoon junkie...

Mensagem  leonardobento em Qua Mar 10 2010, 16:07

Mike Carey vem sendo bastante elogiado pelos fãs por seu trabalho pautado em fidelidade cronológica e recuperação de personagens mais esquecidos em X-Men Legacy. Ele contou ao CBR quais são as principais novidades do título para os próximos meses.

A proposta de Legacy é se centrar em um personagem principal e, a partir de então, explorar a interação deste com os demais. Foi assim com Xavier e está sendo agora com Vampira. Os personagens que aparecem na história foram escolhidos por Carey tanto por seu gosto pessoal, quanto pelo que ele considerava adequado para cada história. Em Necrosha, ele teve a oportunidade de montar realmente uma equipe e adorou poder fazer isso.

Sobre o evento, ele também explicou o motivo de Sina voltar a morrer, enquanto Cifra permaneceu entre os vivos. No caso de Doug, tanto Warlock quanto Magia contribuíram para o processo. Além disso, para dar o impacto pretendido por sua história, ele considera que ela precisava acabar exatamente daquele jeito. Se pudesse escolher quem ressuscitaria, teria sido Moira.

Nunca houve a pretensão de ter Sina de volta. A aparição dela servia apenas aos propósitos de dar o pontapé inicial para o envolvimento de Legacy em Necrosha. A participação de Sina se tornou marcante pela possibilidade de ela e Olhos Vendados terem um laço familiar. Ademais, Irene revelou para Ruth que esta tem um irmão. Carey disse que o personagem nunca apareceu antes e que ele pretende voltar ao tema quando possível. Também falou que os seus poderes são diferentes dos da irmã. Olhos Vendados continua aparecendo no título, assim como os demais jovens mutantes.

Carey afirmou que, após Second Coming, o título ainda terá um elenco restrito e seleto, mas com aparições mais significativas de mutantes importantes. Carey também afastou a possibilidade de termos os Carrascos envolvidos em Second Coming, apesar de eles estarem sempre rondado o ambiente.

O autor falou mais sobre essa fase focada em Vampira. Ele afastou qualquer possibilidade de ela se envolver com Míssil, classificando os sentimentos mútuos como uma grande amizade.

Perguntado sobre a similaridade dos poderes de Medula e Bling!, o autor se limitou a dizer que a manifestação dos poderes de Bling! é muito mais incontrolável.

Com o fim da série da Miss Marvel, surgiu a possibilidade de termos uma interação entre ela e Vampira novamente, mas Carey acredita que esse não é o momento, principalmente pelos encontros recentes de Vampira com a Miss Marvel Sombria e com os trechos dos primeiros contatos com Carol Denvers, revividos no arco Selvagem.

O escritor gostaria de usar, como vilões em suas histórias, Mojo e Espiral, além do Doutor Destino.

Finalmente, disse que se tem alguma coisa que gostaria de ter feito no título, mas não o fez, foi escrever Cassandra Nova, mas abortou a ideia quando a personagem foi revisitada em Surpreendentes X-Men, de Whedon. Carey também gostaria de ter podido explorar a relação passada entre Xavier e Sábia, mas nunca teve o momento certo para tanto.

Quando surgiu, era interessante, mas:

- o romance dele com a Vampira é um pé no saco. Ninguém alguém mais.
- ele é muito poser. Paga uma de galã com sotaque francês, mas é um personagem muito fraco.
- depois que cogitaram que ele fosse o terceiro Summers, fiquei decepcionado. Ainda bem que não se confirmou.

Entre outras coisas.

- o romance dele com a Vampira é um pé no saco. Ninguém alguém mais.
- ele é muito poser. Paga uma de galã com sotaque francês, mas é um personagem muito fraco.
- depois que cogitaram que ele fosse o terceiro Summers, fiquei decepcionado. Ainda bem que não se confirmou.

Entre outras coisas.

Bom, gosto é gosto...

Eu pelo menos sempre curti a história dele com a Vampira, Inclusive fiquei muito aborrecido quando substituíram ele pelo Homem de Gelo nos filmes...

X-Position com Duane Swierczynski:

Spoiler:


Grey has a few questions that he wants some black-or-white answers for:

I’m a huge “Cable” fan, and I’m sad to see this series come to an end. I have a bunch of questions for you:

1) Why do you think Cable didn’t tell Hope about the X-Men or about being a mutant sooner?


Thanks, Grey. I’m sorry to see the series end, too. But our plan all along was to tell this specific story, then bring Hope back to the present. Why didn’t Cable say anything earlier? From the beginning, Cable’s been determined to let Hope choose her own path. His mission wasn’t to nudge her one way or the other. It was to keep her alive until she was able to make her own choice. And now, she has.

2) Are there any untold tales of Cable/Hope that you would have liked to write?

I had a chance to do a little of that with the “A Girl Named Hope” backup stories (collected in the one-shot: “X-Men: Hope” #1), but it would certainly be fun to do more.

3) In the last issue, Bishop doubts himself for the first time…why now?

All along Bishop’s had the idea that fate’s been guiding his actions. No matter how desperate things seemed, no matter how impossible, fate would pull his butt out of the fire and let him complete his mission. But now, it’s clear “fate” wasn’t on Bishop’s side…because Bishop has seemingly lost. I see it as a kind of a Biblical, “Lord, why have you forsaken me?” kind of moment.

4) Has Cable ever discussed the Phoenix with Hope?

He’s barely talked about the X-Men or being a mutant. I don’t think he’d open up that blazing can of worms.

Adam is curious about Bishop’s past and future. What do you say?

1) I've really enjoyed your run on “Cable” and the Bishop miniseries. You planted a couple of self-proclaimed X-Men in Bishop's backstory. Both of them regret that the team didn't know "what" Hope was when they protected her. Did these X-Men seek Bishop out on purpose? Did Storm and Gambit/the Witness plant the seeds of psychosis in him on the off-chance that he could succeed in stopping Hope when he grew up?


That would presume that Bishop’s grandmother is Storm. That would also mean that Grandma knew that Bishop would be going back in time, which is a huge leap to make. As for “The Witness” – it’s very possible he knew that Bishop had appeared in the past, and I’m sure he had his own agenda, which no doubt influenced the young Lucas.

2) I liked that Bishop survived the series, after getting his character developed more than it has been in ages. If he found his way back from the future, would you be interested in writing him again?

I’d love to. There’s a powerful redemption story there. I know I’ve said this countless times, but I don’t see Bishop as a villain. He was doing what he thought was right – and he stuck to his guns to a tragic degree.

3) Another thing that wasn't explicitly spelled out (but had me wondering) was the redhead who Hope almost ran over in “Cable” #24. It reminded me of how Jean Grey got her powers after her best friend was hit by a passing car. Was that intentional on your part, or am I reading too much into this? I wish we were able to see your scripts!

Good eye, Adam. I was nodding to a few things there, actually. And because you asked so nice, here’s my panel description from that script:

5/ Cut to a second later, from Hope’s POV: a near fatal hit. In front of the Civic, just inches away from the bumper, is a 9-year-old girl – red hair in a ponytail, green eyes, holding a skateboard. In another life, this could have been Hope. Added bonus: this will TOTALLY freak Adam out when he reads it!

See? Duane totally keeps his readers in mind while he’s writing!

Above, you mentioned Adam presuming a relation of Bishop’s. Well, Valeria Kementari believes knowledge is power…can you help empower her?

Mr. Swierczynski, did you intend for Storm to be Bishop’s grandmother in “The Times and Lives of Lucas Bishop?” A lot of fans seem to think she is even though there was no actual mention of it whatsoever…


That’s one of those things that’s been teased for years. I say let the teasing continue!

Although you can’t reveal that detail about Bishop, maybe you can help Sharif Youssef out with his questions about our favorite time-hopping hunter…

Duane, I love your version of Bishop! You’ve added so many nice little touches, such as Bishop thinking of Shard as a little girl being branded on the face every time he blinks his eye; the fact that he lived with Stryfe for twelve years without ever allowing himself to think of Hope; that he nuked his parents in Australia; Bishop waving that hilarious badge because he really believes he’s still a cop.

Just like Forge, you never left any question that he was cracked and completely delusional about the concept of time-travel. The way he filters history into his obsession made Bishop hilarious, tragic and compelling. My questions:

1) Was your limited series meant to show that the Bishop we've been reading about all these years was always crazy or at least always on the verge? Do you think he just snapped when Hope was born?


I really appreciate the kind words, Sharif. I don’t think Bishop was always crazy. He grew up hearing about this monster who had ruined everything – but only when the events of “Messiah CompleX” drew near did he realize that, “Oh crap, it’s happening! Now! I need to stop this…”

2) At the end of issue #24, Bishop seems to feel like a proud Poppa because he helped to raise Hope as a badass. Do you think all along he subconsciously wanted her to become a monster?

Not at all. It’s not so much pride as “What have I done?” One wonders what Hope’s life would have been like if Bishop had just left her alone.

3) Did you ever consider having Bishop discover that Layla Miller triggered the rebellion in which his parents were killed, and that she intentionally turned the man who would kill his sister into a soulless monster? Is Bishop's story over?

Bishop’s story is not over. He’s probably off the playing field for a while, but I think there’s more to learn about our disgraced mutant cop.

Marcus Martin has an assortment of queries on a variety of topics. As they say on Jeopardy, “Alex, I’ll take Potpourri for $300…”

1) I'm kind of sad about what happened to Bishop within this series. I mean, never once did the X-Men get his side of the story – just small tidbits of his past/their future. I truly do think that he lost his way as a hero, as he was so obsessed with killing Hope. So I just have to ask you...wasn't there any chance of redemption for Bishop at all that he could have taken?


As long as he clung to the idea that Hope had to die, I don’t think anything could have convinced him to step off the road he was traveling. By the end of #24, though, Bishop does seem to understand that maybe his actions have had the opposite reaction. Maybe he helped create this “monster.”

2) With Deadpool returning for the final issue, are we going to be getting the fourth wall jokes/yellow boxes? Or will you be portraying a different side of Deadpool? Whose perspective will this story be from?

This will be the Deadpool we know and love, yellow boxes and all. The story jumps back and forth between Cable and Deadpool’s POV, though there’s a reason Deadpool’s name appears first in the title.

3) What other Marvel characters would you like to try to write and why?

I’ve been lucky to have been given at crack to my favorites – the Punisher, Werewolf By Night, Moon Knight, Wolverine and various X-Men. But I think I won’t die happy unless I get the chance to do a little Spidey. Somewhere. Somehow…

Speaking of other Marvel characters, Marius665 would like to know more about a certain non-mutant with some powerful pummeling abilities…

I know it’s not an X-Men question, but I just wanted to ask what’s going on with “The Immortal Iron Fist?” Are there any plans to bring the series back with either yourself as the writer or another creative team? And when is Misty going to have the baby? At the time it was coming out, the book was easily my favorite series! I loved how you continued after Fraction/Brubaker and just kept the ball rolling. Thanks for that!


Thank you, Marius665. So glad you dug the series. For a while there I thought the series would be coming back soon, but alas, it wasn’t to be. Still, I can’t imagine that Danny and Misty will be on the sidelines all that long.

ClanAskani concludes today’s verbal “assault” with two questions: one about Cable’s omission and the other about your inspiration.

1) There's been a notable absence of anything Askani-related in Cable. Is this something that you wanted to avoid as a writer? Or something that Cable wanted to avoid teaching Hope?


As I mentioned earlier, Cable was awfully closed-mouthed about a lot of things when it came to Hope. I think he’d be worried about filling her head with stories of the Askani – that it would cloud her own judgment.

2) Your upcoming novel, “Expiration Date,” has to do with time travel. Is this an idea you came up with while writing “Cable?” What else can you tell us about this book?

The idea for “Expiration Date” has been in my head for over ten years. It started as a sequel to my first novel, “Secret Dead Men,” and was about a time-traveling detective (he’d take cases in the past, then go forward to the future to “solve” them via Google). But when I started writing it, I realized the key to the story wasn’t the time-traveling gimmick; rather, it was the screwed-up family relationships. That’s probably the closest tie to “Cable,” actually. Instead of a father/daughter dynamic, I played around with a son/dead father story.

Before we go, it’s time for this week’s “Behind the X” question, where fans get to learn about what makes X-writers tick. As your answer to the last query was a bit touchy-feely, tell us…what was the last movie you watched that made you cry (and who were you watching it with)?

Geez, George – what, are you trying to get me thrown out of the hardboiled tough-guy club? Truth is, I’m always a sucker for grandfather/grandson-type weepies. Specifically grandfather/grandson weepies featuring Peter Falk. The end of “Princess Bride,” when Falk tells Fred Savage: “As you wish…” Gets me every time. And it’s not even a sad moment! Then there’s “Roommates,” Peter Yates’ 1995 “comedy” where we watch Peter Falk’s character raise the D.B. Sweeney character from boyhood, and guide him through various traumas and tragedies. I openly wept at the end of that one (and I was alone, thank you very much).

A revista mensal de Cable teve sua última edição na última semana e ainda ganhará um breve especial com Deadpool, recontando o momento em que Nathan Summers teve a ajuda de Wade Wilson para resgatar a bebê messias. Para solucionar as últimas dúvidas a respeito do título, o escritor Duane Swierczynski respondeu às dúvidas dos fãs.

O autor contou que Cable não contou antes para Esperança sobre os X-Men ou sobre ela ser mutante, porque ele queria que a menina pudesse escolher seu próprio caminho. A missão dele não é conduzi-la para um ou outro destino, mas mantê-la viva até que ela pudesse tomar suas próprias decisões. Por isso também jamais tocou no assunto da Fênix ou de Askani.

Parte das histórias que ele não conseguiu contar no título, saíram nas histórias de back-up, reunidas sob o nome de “A Girl Called Hope”. Mesmo assim, ele certamente gostaria de escrever mais coisas sobre Cable e Esperança.

Na última edição, Bishop duvidou pela primeira vez de suas convicções. Ele não tem mais clareza de seus objetivos, está perdido. Pode ter sido o responsável por transformar Esperança em um monstro. Caso Bishop consiga voltar do futuro (e a história dele não está acabada), o escritor gostaria de escrever uma história de redenção para o personagem. Não que ele seja um vilão, porque está fazendo o que acha que é o certo. Não pode ser visto como um louco: apenas interpretou as histórias sobre as quais ouviu a infância toda.

O autor não confirmou se Ororo é a avó dele, mostrada na mini “The Times and Life of Lucas Bishop”.

Um dos leitores percebeu ainda que em um dos quadros de Cable #24, temos uma das vidas possíveis de Hope e entre elas está uma situação parecida à vivida por Jean quando tinha nove anos, tendo seus poderes desenvolvidos quando uma grande amiga é atropelada.

Finalmente, na edição especial com Deadpool, teremos de volta todas aquelas caixas de diálogo amarelas. Será como uma continuação da parceria vista no antigo título Cable e Deadpool.

X-Position com Cornell:

Spoiler:


CBR News: First up today is WhoZeDuke (second cousin of WhatZeHeck) who wants to sing the praises of his favorite creative combo...
I have to say, Paul, that everything you and Leonard Kirk have done together has been fantastic. "Captain Britain and MI:13" and "Dark X-Men" (including your stories from "Dark X-Men: The Beginning") have been some of my favorite comics from the past few years. The "Venus" backup in "Avengers vs. Atlas" was great too.
So I have to know - when will you two be put on a high-profile ongoing? I'd love to see you and Kirk on one of the ongoing X-Books after "Second Coming." Please tell me this will happen, or if not, that you'll be doing a project together soon...


Paul Cornell: Thanks very much. I'd love to do an ongoing, particularly an X-book, so I can only recommend you put that question to the X-editors, then pop back and tell me what they say. It's okay, I'll wait.
(Waits. Hums a bit.)
He's not coming back, is he? I assume WhoZeDuke is a bloke's name. He'd be called WhoZeDuchess, otherwise. Perhaps he's of French extraction. Do you think I said something wrong? I'll answer the next couple while we're waiting...

Joshua Hetherington is sure pleased to hear that, as he has a number of questions for you about the Dark X-Men's adventures.
1) Was it always intended for the Dark X-Men to be "semi-sidelined" in their own miniseries? It seems that while they had a part to play in the story, they spent most of their time reacting to everything around them (i.e. Norman and X-Man).


Well, that's the story, really, that they don't also serve, sometimes, who only stand and wait - that sometimes you have to do something.

2) Do you have any idea of where Mystique, Omega, Mimic and Dark Beast are going to end up post-"Dark X-Men?"

No. If I'd read ahead, I could have got WhoZeDuke to ask the X-editors that too. He should be back any time now.

3) Will the Dark X-Men remain a team after Norman Osborn's kingdom comes tumbling down? I'd love to see them running up against Rogue and a squad of X-Men in one of the other X-books...

Me too. And I'd be up for writing that if it happens. I think they'd have quite an interesting new dynamic out on their own. Not a particularly stable one, but that's where the interest would lie.

4) On that note, will there be a sequel to this miniseries?

Again, you're asking the wrong person, really. I never asked about it, because it seemed obvious that it was of its time, but, hmm, you've made me consider this now.

As long as you're considering it, Morgan Piersanti is curious to hear about possible additions you'd make to the team...
If the Dark X-Men were to ever return, what characters would you add to their ranks?


I've mentioned Sauron a couple of times. I think he's really interesting. I'd like to see him battling the Tolkien estate for use of the name. No, seriously. That'd be a major issue for him.

Interesting. Maybe the Dark X-Men should have a lawyer on the team...nah, that's too dark.
Andre4000 sent in the last set of questions for the day, and it appears he really wants to know more about the specifics of that final issue:
1) This series seemed to end on an abrupt note. It didn't feel like the stories eased into an ending so much as, "Norman's caught Nate Grey. The End." Was this the plan from the beginning?


Absolutely. "And I'll make sure to have an abrupt ending," I told Nick. "Great," he replied, "abrupt is one of my favorite kinds of -"

2) The ending also felt very dark in nature, which I suppose is a given considering the book's title. Is it difficult to write an ending that leaves characters on such a bleak note?

That was entirely what I was after, to have it smack them and the audience in the face. Invigorating, I'd call it. Bracing, even.

3) Do you have any idea where can we find out what will happen to Nate Grey (maybe "Second Coming")? Were you told what would happen to him after your book? Or were you just given the directive to have him locked up by the end?

I think Nick wanted to have him locked up; maybe that was in the brief, yes. Or at least, we decided on it towards the end of the process. I don't know what happens to him next. If there's an audience for a solo book, I'd love to write it.

4) I have a weird question about a small detail here, but why was Nate's eye bandaged up at the end of the book? Maybe I don't know enough about the character, but does he derive some of his powers out of his ability to see from that eye?

That's his glowing eye, and following the torture...it may or may not be there anymore. Draw your own conclusions.

5) How do you see Norman's psychosis working? I was surprised the Green Goblin portion of his mind walked away from the Norman portion without a fight. Why do you feel this happened?

Because they're both incredibly pragmatic - Goblin and glorious leader Norman - and everything else that was going on was far more important than fighting for control.

6) Last question - I've been a fan of yours for awhile. In addition to the comics you've been doing lately, do you have any other projects (books, TV shows) coming up that we can look forward to?

Thanks very much. I've got a pilot coming up on BBC3, for a medical horror show called "Pulse." That may go to series, or may be shown on its own to gauge audience reaction, we don't know yet. There'll be some comics, prose and TV surprises this year, none of which I can talk about yet, but I think it's going to be an exciting year.

Outstanding! But before you leave, it's my turn to have a little "Behind the X" fun and ask a thought-provoking query. As you've spent a lot of time with the Dark X-Men and Norman Osborn, can you tell us, out of all the fictional villains found in various media (books, movies, etc.), who do you find to be the most terrifying and why?

Good question. I do like villains to be people you actually wouldn't want to meet or be, rather than glamorous anti-heroes. (Anti-heroes are fine, but they're not villains.) I think John Simm's Master in "Doctor Who" is a good example of a villain that's actually frightening, because he's capable of anything.

Hmm, no sign of WhoZeDuke. I wonder if he just doesn't want to tell me the bad news...ho hum.


Paul Cornell é um dos autores mais elogiados da nova geração na Marvel. Ele escreveu a curta série do Capitão Britânia e MI13 e, mais recentemente, a mini Dark X-Men. Os fãs dos títulos mutantes querem que a dupla Cornell e Kirk continue dando as caras por alguns títulos, então o escritor pede que os leitores façam essa solicitação junto aos editores.

Cornell não sabe qual será o destino dos personagens de Dark X-Men com o final da mini, nem se ela terá sequência, e também pede que isso seja perguntado aos editores. O escritor se ofereceu para escrever uma série solo de X-Man.

Provavelmente o grupo não permanecerá unido com o final do Reinado Sombrio, mas o autor considera que seria bastante legal (e gostaria de escrever isso também) que os Dark X-Men voltassem a enfrentar um grupo de X-Men, liderado pela Vampira.

Se ele pudesse acrescentar um novo personagem ao grupo seria Sauron e até brincou que colocaria o mutante em uma aventura contra Tolkien, pelos direitos de utilizar o nome.

O modo como a mini acabou foi motivo de questionamentos. Alguns leitores não gostaram do modo abrupto com o qual ela se encerrou. Cornell se defende, dizendo que conseguiu o efeito esperado, de acertar diretamente o seu leitor.

Quanto à personalidade do Duende Verde que emergiu da mente de Osborn, ele acha que ela não confrontou seu “dono”, porque ambos são pragmáticos e havia coisas mais importantes rolando do que uma briga para ver quem controla a mente de Norman.

X-Position com Kyle & Yost:

Spoiler:


CBR News: Andre4000 starts things off today with a smattering of queries on all things "X":
1) I have some "Second Coming" questions, but first I was hoping you could explain something: in "X-Force" #24, the team arrives on Genosha thanks to Vanisher teleporting them to the island. They arrive, see thousands of 'zombies,' and decide they need to slash their way through these dead folks to get to Selene’s castle. Um, why didn’t they have Vanisher just teleport them to the castle instead? While it’s less fun than stabbing things, it sure is easier…


Chris Yost: Vanisher declined to go. He was going to leave. He was like, "Let’s get the fuck out of here!" He wasn’t quite interested in helping them.

Craig Kyle: Exactly. His job was to get them to the island, not to get them to the heart of the site. His plan was to get Elixir to heal him once they arrived and then bug out, which is his normal M.O.

Yost: X-Force really didn’t have time to do their usual "torture and force [Vanisher] to help."

Kyle: And they also really didn’t know where Warpath was. It was Wolfsbane that ultimately tracked him down with her new Asgardian-enhanced senses.

2) Regarding "Second Coming," how much of the story is yours? While you were writing in the X-verse at the beginning of "Messiah CompleX," were you involved in the planning of Hope’s story to get to this point?

Yost: A lot of the threads that are going into "Second Coming" were seeded in "X-Force," and that was from day one. Bastion was the main antagonist for our first arc. A lot of those things you’re going to see in "Second Coming" grew out of "X-Force." I think a lot of longtime readers of ours – even from around "New X-Men" – are going to see and hopefully appreciate that this is one big story.

Kyle: Hope is what everyone’s fighting for, but the threats they face were all borne out of "X-Force." The reason all these guys have come back into the fold – Cameron Hodge, Stryker, Bastion – all that stuff started in our book. And it’s pretty exciting to have a satellite title be a big part of what’s driving the thread that this event is built upon. It’s been an honor and a thrill.
You know, early on, I think it was the first year we were on the book, we told the gang that for us to really close the Bastion chapter of "X-Force," it was going to take more than our team. We could handle Selene and her forces, but if it was going to be Bastion’s plan coming to fruition…if we said X-Force could handle it, we’d be lying. Fortunately, everyone in the room was ready to say, "Yeah, we’d love to do a big event; we’d love to be part of it." So all the talented writers and artists involved were on board with working to make it happen; it was great.

3) Nate Grey (X-Man) and Kitty Pryde have both made sudden reappearances in the X-Universe. In fact, it almost feels as if they were rushed into place prior to the beginning of "Second Coming" because they have parts to play in this story. Sooo…do they have major parts to play in this upcoming story?

Yost: Not necessarily. Nate Grey was more involved with "Siege." As to whether he’ll be involved with "Second Coming"…you’ll have to wait and see. But, yeah, at least one of those characters is going to be involved.

Kyle: Often in books, you just happen to have happy coincidences. I mean, we brought a lot of the New Mutants back into the fold too – Magik, Cypher, and what-have-you. But I don’t think we had a reason in mind, we were just longtime "New Mutants" fans and wanted to see that team get back together. And Zeb is doing an amazing job with those characters. Sometimes it’s just destiny – you have characters you want to see back in action, and then when they’re there, you can use them for the events around you.

Speaking of "rushing" things, Big G (not me) had a concern he was hoping you might address.
1) Was "Necrosha" rushed in any way due to the coming of "Second Coming?" I know you two have been brewing "Necrosha" since Selene seduced Wither back in "New X-Men" #32 – and it’s been slowly boiling throughout "X-Force" – but now that it's almost over, the story seems rushed. Maybe it’s just me though…

Yost: It wasn’t rushed, it was actually expanded an issue…it got bigger.


Kyle: The only unfortunate timing we’re dealing with – which is still great timing – is that we go from event to event. "Necrosha," for us, is the moment where our team gets to shine and show that our underdogs aren't just "team stabby-stabby." They can actually do a great service and save mutantkind better than anyone thought they could. So that's kind of our team send-off. And then, to cap our run on our part in the X-Universe, we do a big Bastion arc. The only unfortunate part is that our team doesn’t get that breath in between the two events, but if you look at our run, these guys have never had a chance to catch their breath. Every time they think they've settled one issue, a greater threat rears its head. Our guys have had a nasty run of things ever since we kicked the title back off.

Yost: But the next time we do a book, it’s just going to be all "down" issues. It's going to be two years of "down" issues.

Kyle: [Chuckles] We're actually going to launch a new team, and kill them the first issue…

2) Wither has had it in for Elixir for a long time. Can we expect to see a big showdown between the two? And will it prove to be their final fight?

Yost: Yes, you can certainly expect to see a huge showdown between those two, and, um, you know what? Yeah, it will be their final fight.

Kyle: I think that’s a very honest answer.

Ooh, ominous. Patrick Bateman also had a question about Elixir that’s somewhat predicated on your previous response…
1) If Elixir survives "Necrosha," will his knowledge of who Hope is play a part in "Second Coming?"


Yost: If he had the opportunity to tell somebody what he knows…that would probably be really useful.

Kyle: That's true. And when you read the next "X-Force" issue, you’ll kind of find out where Elixir lands – on which side of the grave. Look, "Second Coming" is about what Hope is and what it means to everybody in the entire X-Universe, so that’s why we’re doing this saga – that’s why it's coming – so this is the big payoff.

2) Will the effects of the middle chapter "Messiah War" have any influence on what happens in "Second Coming?" And if so, should we be looking for appearances by Stryfe or Apocalypse?

Yost: I think it will have an effect, but I don’t think it’s going to be anything overt – you know, like Apocalypse coming down in a giant spaceship to go after Hope or anything. But I think there was a point to the "Messiah War" [in that it] showed the two sides of Hope – one as a savior and the other as a destroyer. And I think that’s where "Messiah War" really played a large part, because you’d show the X-Men dealing with this girl who’s not necessarily living the best life and she very easily might go the [wrong] way. I mean that girl – her entire life – has lived through hell, and Wolverine knows that. He knows and he’s starting to question whether sending her off with Cable – which was Cyclops' choice – was the best choice. Wolverine is starting to question a lot of Cyclops' choices.

Kyle: And if you talk about our team specifically, the effects of what they went through and their experiences with Hope and Cable…yeah, that's a big part of it. As far as Stryfe and Apocalypse, those are ripples in the X-Men's lives that we’ll see sort of down the path – not in this current story. But "Messiah War" had a big effect on our team and in their relationship with [Hope and Cable]…specifically Hope and X-23. They had a very similar life. They both grew up with lots of strife – not the character – pain, anguish, death. That's a connection they shared when they first met, and that’s something that will keep them bonded as their story continues.

Zaki Zakaria is curious about another connection Hope shares with someone. It’s a somewhat tenuous link, but it’s an important one:
Considering that Scarlet Witch is the cause of the current mutant mayhem, will she figure into "Second Coming?" Will she and Hope get the chance to meet face to face in this event?


Yost: No. I think there’s something coming up to deal with the Scarlet Witch firsthand, but "Second Coming" is all about Hope's homecoming right now and making sure she stays alive to do whatever it is [the X-Men] think she has to do. I think the bigger "No more mutants"/Wanda issue is going to raise its head a little later.

Kyle: To expand on that, ever since we joined the books, or at least started telling an ongoing series with X-Men, the mutants have had their backs up against the wall, their numbers have been the lowest they’ve ever been, and, you know, they've been fighting off death – and us – ever since we’ve been writing them. And this is it. Come hell or high water, this war is going to be settled. The forces that are up against them are the worst they've ever faced, and the numbers they have are the fewest they've ever had. This is the turning point. That's the fight, and that's the saga we’re finishing up here. I think it’s going to be a story people are going to be very excited to read. Everyone's brought their best to this.

Yost: Yeah, the Scarlet Witch thing – the "no more mutants"/fate of mutantkind – it weighs heavily on every page of this. I mean, Hope's existence is almost a reaction to what the Scarlet Witch did. It definitely is part of her story, but right now, this is the homecoming story.

Christopher Judd wrote in with questions about "X-Men: Hellbound" (a.k.a. "X-Men: Second Coming Revelations – Hellbound"). This lengthily-titled tale will be written by Mr. Yost…so hopefully, he can answer the following:
1) Judging from the solicitations for "X-Men: Hellbound," can we expect to see much of Illyana Rasputin in the miniseries? Or will the focus of the book revolve around the extraction/rescue team sent to Limbo after her?


Yost: I think it’s a little bit from Column A and a little from Column B. Illyana is definitely in it, but she’ll play the largest part in the third chapter.

Kyle: Okay, I have a follow-up question – would this story be better if we wrote it together?

Yost: Yes, because that would guarantee that Illyana dies then.

Kyle: [Laughs] How dare you!

2) Also – if you're at liberty to discuss this – how did you decide on the group you selected for this miniseries? Cannonball, Pixie, Gambit, Northstar and two of the New X-Men from your previous title? It seems like an unusual mix…

Yost: I asked the X-office who I could kill, and that was the list. [Laughter] No, there’s a very particular reason each one of them is chosen, and in the first issue you'll see the thought process behind it. I mean, they’re in the middle of a crisis situation and it’s not like "who can they spare?" – because they can’t spare anyone – but they’re each chosen for a specific reason. And I don't think the full team has been revealed yet…

3) And what prompted you to include "Hellbound" within the "Second Coming" storyline? How tightly are their stories tied together?

Yost: The first issue of "Hellbound" and a very specific issue of "Second Coming" go hand-in-hand. Something happens in "Second Coming" that creates the impetus for this miniseries; the same thing with the other one-shot as well. There are story points in "Second Coming" that basically have to be dealt with, but at the same time, are a little bit of a tangent. So it’s all part of the same story, but I think they were just better dealt with in a little side miniseries.

Joshua Hetherington sent in the final email of the day, and he’s dying to know if your run on "X-Force" is going to go out with a bang…or a baby wolf-like whimper:
1) With upcoming events, I have to ask: will X-Force finally be revealed to all of Utopia? And if so, will the X-Men even bat an eye at the "Wetworks X-Men?" It doesn't seem these days like many X-Men would be against the idea…


Yost: You will find out this Wednesday [March 31]. The existence of X-Force is something that is going to be dealt with within "Second Coming."

Kyle: And I think it’s safe to say that the X-Men aren’t based on a wetworks-like team, so it will have a big effect on those as they find out.

Yost: Absolutely. I mean, there are definitely X-Men there that still see the X-Men as the shining light – they’re the heroes. And what is happening under their noses…it’s a betrayal. The X-Men haven’t always been an army, they used to be like a tight-knit family. And things have changed – things have gotten more and more desperate – but I think, even with as bad as things have gotten, there are a certain number of the X-Men who are going to be like, "What the hell?!?"

Kyle: Cyclops' play for a long time has been, "If we’re wiped out, there’s nothing left saving because we’ve all been killed off." But the opposite point of view is, "If there’s really no rules left to ensure survival, what do you have once you’ve survived?" Xavier’s dream will definitely be lost in the process if it's just bloodshed that keeps you alive day to day. It's a tough situation and I think that’s why Cyclops is trying to focus one group on doing those dark acts and keeping another group pure – so Xavier's dream can live in one section, hopefully the largest, while the other pays the highest price to ensure its survival.

2) Will we find out what's going to happen with Wolfsbane and her baby before the end of "Second Coming," or will this story be told elsewhere?

Yost: I’m going with elsewhere.

Kyle: Agreed. She is obviously part of our last "Necrosha" issue, but Rahne’s ongoing saga is something that deserves more time than the fast-paced and intense storyline that "Second Coming" is going to be. That will be an outstanding issue that will need to be covered as their lives continue…if they survive.

3) Is "X-Force" getting a 'proper ending' that will give readers a sense of conclusion and provide closure of some kind for its characters? Or will your last issue feel open-ended?

Kyle: We’ve said this before – we’ve had the last two pages of our run planned since we wrote the first. So this is something that will have a proper ending for us and the story. It's something that should feel satisfying but leave threads for the X-Force team to continue. I think it will be a satisfying conclusion, don’t you, Chris?

Yost: No, no I don’t. I think people will feel gypped and ripped off, because I know I do.

Kyle: [Laughs] Yeah, that’s what we planned for two years.

Yost: I think people will definitely want to read "X-Force" #25 as well, because that’s a big story that wraps up there. There are definitely huge changes to the team that come out of "Necrosha."

Kyle: Yeah, absolutely. That's the first big change. The next one happens once "Second Coming" is over…

Ah, the promise of things to come! That’s it for questions from the readers, so now it’s my turn with a little "Behind the X" question. Allow me to be a bit inventive and ask: what do you think has been the greatest invention created in your lifetime?

Kyle: The personal computer.

Yost: Okay, the personal computer video game…um, I don’t even know. Technology has just exploded in my lifetime; like, I used to play with my Commodore 64. It's gotta be computers. I mean, the phones that we’re speaking on have more computing power than the space shuttle. The iPhone, hell, my old Motorola, has more power…

Kyle: So will you be flying iPhones in space? And does that make your answer video games or the iPhone?

Yost: Wait, I’ve got to go with the Segway.

Kyle: What about the Posturepedic mattress? Could we have a Top Ten?

Yost: What about the thing where you fall down and you can’t get up and it contacts someone?

Kyle: The Life-Alert!

Yost: Yes! The Life-Alert! That’s my final answer. We would all be dead without that.

Kyle: So that’s our answers – the personal computer and Life-Alert. But I also think we should be using iPhones to fly into space…

BONUS ANNOUNCEMENT: Just as I was about to get off the phone with our gracious guests, they wanted to let fans know one more thing – "X-Force: Sex and Violence" is coming! They said art on the first two issues of this miniseries (written by Kyle and Yost with art by Gabrielle Del’Otto) is complete and that readers should be looking for this title in the solicitations coming three weeks from now.
