Não sei se isso é off-topic, mas aí vai uma matéria sobre New Mutants, com o editor da revista, Nick Lowe, focando em Illyana e na New Mutants #9, ou seja, pós Necrosha, e com prévia da arte dessa edição. O link da matéria: http://marvel.com/news/comicstories.10549.New_Mutants~colon~_Illyana~apos~s_Magik

o texto é o seguinte:
Spoiler:
New Mutants: Illyana's Magik
Editor Nick Lowe breaks down the mysteries surrounding the recently returned Magik

Since her mysterious reappearance in NEW MUTANTS #1, fans have wondered just what secrets Illyana Rasputin harbors. Now, in NEW MUTANTS #9 on January 6, writer Zeb Wells and artist Paul Davidson bring the young Magik to the attention of Emma Frost-and she wants answers!

"[Emma's] been interested [in Illyana] ever since she came back, but she's only [getting] a chance to deal with it now," relates series editor Nick Lowe. "Emma's been through a lot lately, from Utopia through Nation X, and her plate has been full! You'll see some new developments in UNCANNY X-MEN that I don't want to spoil here, but which make it a bit easier for her to properly 'debrief' Illyana."

As to just why Magik has chosen to keep so many secrets in recent months, Lowe promises that, "once you read NEW MUTANTS #9, this will be a lot clearer. You'll understand why she's been keeping [things] secret and you'll learn why that isn't an option any more. There were tastes of it in NEW MUTANTS #1, but when you get more of a full picture it's going to scare your pants right off."

Given her secretive nature, fans might expect a certain level of mistrust or apprehension between Illyana and her fellow New Mutants. However, Lowe explains that, for most of her teammates, this hasn't proven much of an issue.

"Sam [Guthrie, a.k.a. Cannonball] and the rest have known and loved Illyana for years," he recounts. "So there's some degree of trust and love that is much more emotion-based than thought-based, if that makes sense. Their hearts want to trust her. It's almost like a muscle memory.

"For instance, I drove to high school every day from my Western suburb of Cleveland to my school which was just outside downtown Cleveland. Several times since, when I'm home and driving downtown, I'll absentmindedly get off the freeway at my high school's exit rather than where I actually need to go. People call it 'autopilot.' It's like that with the New Mutants and much of the X-Men. Their hearts are on autopilot and their heads are just now catching up and asking questions about this strange young woman."

Illyana recently took on yet another secret, claiming responsibility to Doctor Kavita Rao for murdering the personality inside Legion's head that her friend and teammate Karma actually killed, something that has helped to strengthen the relationship between the two girls.

"She takes responsibility for killing lots of Legion's personalities as well as several other beings," notes Lowe. "But that one that Shan killed, that's more of Illyana doing Shan a solid so she doesn't get in trouble. It's like she's Judd Nelson in 'The Breakfast Club.' That makes Shan the Molly Ringwald character and Bobby...Ally Sheedy?"

Looking to the future, Lowe says Illyana will have a significant role to play in NEW MUTANTS and the X-Men's world as a whole.

"[Her role's] both big and ass-kicking," touts the editor. "She also has a big part in 'Second Coming.'"

As for the rest of the New Mutants, they'll have more than enough to keep themselves busy in the coming months:

"There [are] some new villains coming around that are scary and dangerous as hell. Just wait until you hear their story. Also, some major figures from the big Inferno crossover are going to be kicking the New Mutants' butts soon."

Bom, basicamente, fala-se que a Emma finalmente terá a chance de lidar com Illyana, e que os segredos que esta vinha escondendo dos demais virão à tona. Lowe fala que, a despeito da natureza reservada de Illyana, seus amigos (os Novos Mutantes) confiam nela, muito mais pela velha amizade do que pelo uso da razão, e que por isso não se importaram até agora que ela guardasse tantos segredos. É dito que Magik terá um papel significativo tanto em New Mutants como no mundo dos X-men como um todo, inclusive será peça-chave em Second Coming. Por último, Lowe disse que os seus companheiros dos Novos Mutantes terão bastante trabalho pela frente nos próximos meses, com o surgimento de alguns novos e perigosos vilões, e também alguns figurões vindos do crossover "Inferno".

Reportagem com o Way sobre Deadpool:

Spoiler:


It used to be that if you had deep pockets - and the patience to actually put up with him - you could hire one of the Marvel Universe’s most dangerous and manic mercenaries: Deadpool AKA Wade Wilson. These days, though, the Merc with a Mouth has given up the soldier of fortune business and his new activities have the heroes of the Marvel Universe trembling in fear. No, it’s not because Deadpool is gunning for them - it’s because the esteemed Mr. Wilson wants to be one of them! In the current "Want You to Want Me" arc of "Deadpool," the former mercenary forced his way onto the X-Men and has inadvertently made their lives miserable. In 2010, Deadpool's hero quest will continue in "Whatever a Spider Can," a storyline that has him crossing paths with the Amazing Spider-Man. CBR News spoke with writer Daniel Way about both stories.

In "Deadpool" #15, the first chapter of "Want You to Want Me," Deadpool chose to become a hero. He didn’t do so because of a newly discovered moral compass or anything like that, of course. Deadpool wants to be a superhero because he’s looking for a job that will, quite simply, make him feel better about himself.

"He’s looking for something that will make him feel good and validated, but because of this mania he has, it can’t be a gradual process. It has to be everything right now. That’s why he goes to the X-Men in issue #16 and says, ‘I want to be an X-Man! Sign me up! I’ve got the costume and everything!'" Way told CBR News. "So, this is Deadpool trying to prove himself once again. He has to have that stimulus. Otherwise he just dissipates into incoherent static, because things get boring. He has to be on a journey. He can't reach a destination, because when that happens, all that's left for him to do is look inside himself, and he hates that."

When Deadpool first approached Cyclops about joining the X-Men in "Deadpool" #16, Cyclops flat-out rejected him. However, Wolverine took Cyclops aside and privately suggested that he consider a better strategy than just rejecting Deadpool entirely. "Wolverine knows that they can't summarily throw Deadpool away like that, because it just doesn't work. Deadpool is a boomerang effect. The harder you try to throw him away, the harder he comes back. He will not be ignored," Way explained. "So he and Cyclops are trying a kids' gloves approach to mollify him and keep him at a safe distance where they can monitor him, because he's in San Francisco and he's not going to leave until they figure out a reason to get him to want to leave."

Cyclops tasked X-Force/X-Men member Domino with watching Deadpool while he and Wolverine worked on a plan to convince Wade to leave San Francisco. "The biggest reason Domino has played a major supporting role in this story is, of course, her history with Deadpool. My editor, Axel Alonso, and I have always loved looking at Deadpool's love life because it's just utterly insane. When time allows, we're going to do a one-shot called 'My Dream Date With Deadpool,' which will be like a really sick take on 'Love American Style,'" Way remarked. "Domino's luck powers also kind of play into this story as well, because Deadpool constructs these psychotic schematics and plans. Domino's able work inside of those plans because of her powers. That doesn't mean she'll know what she's getting into, at least not till the third issue of this story, and by then it will be too late."

Having Domino babysit Deadpool would have been a good plan except for Cyclops not understanding that the still mouthy, former Merc may be crazy, but he’s also very perceptive in his own unique way. "The X-Men are basically toying around with him, but Deadpool has this weird almost sort of omniscient view that comes from seeing things at these bizarre angles," Way said. "He’s not necessarily going to fall for their plan. He may just incorporate it into his own plan. This ‘Operation: Moves’ that he has going on."

Deadpool’s "Operation Moves" involves helping the X-Men with a massive public relations problem. In "Deadpool" #16, Ellis Kincaid, the father of Cessily Kincaid, AKA Mercury of the X-Men, began a media campaign claiming that the X-Men were illegally holding his daughter on their island Utopia. Deadpool's solution is to silence Kincaid - permanently.

"Domino tells [Deadpool] that it’s a problem that’s going to go away. They’re simply going to get Archangel’s legal team to file some emancipation papers for Mercury. That’s not speaking Deadpool’s language, though. Word papers? Suit dummies? That’s not how you solve problems! It’s bullets and bombs and it’s dramatic and big. That’s how you get things done, not by sending letters! That’s lame and boring," Way explained. "So what Deadpool figures is, ‘I’ll take care of this PR problem that they’re having in a very direct way, and then they’ll appreciate me for what I can do. They’ll see that I’m the world’s greatest X-Man!’ It may not occur to him that by trying to solve one PR problem, he’s creating a PR apocalypse."

In "Deadpool" #17 Deadpool tried to kill Ellis Kincaid in the middle of a live television appearance. Cyclops dispatched Domino, who foiled the assassination attempt but was unsuccessful in discouraging Deadpool from making any further attempts. At this point, Wolverine and Domino began shadowing Kincaid in hopes of protecting him from Deadpool. Things got even more complicated when Norman Osborn saw Deadpool trying to kill Kincaid on TV.

Recently, Deadpool went after Osborn because he felt the former Green Goblin stole his moment of glory by shooting the Skrull queen at the end of "Secret Invasion." Osborn believed his Deadpool problems were solved when his enforcer, Bullseye, reported back to him at the end off "Deadpool" #12 that he had killed Wade Wilson. Osborn was understandably a little shocked to see Deadpool alive and well on television...but he wasn’t upset.

"This is manna from heaven for Osborn. He tried to get a dirt scam going on the X-Men by backing Ellis Kincaid. He bailed out his company, put him in front of cameras, and if what Kincaid was saying was true, it would be a compelling argument. It’s not though. Mercury is not being held against her will. Kincaid is not the loving father who’s been left out in the cold by an ineffective legal system and a paramilitary outfit called the X-Men. What he’s doing is using his daughter and putting her through the wringer," Way said. "Osborn tried things with Kincaid, because it was an insidious scheme and it didn’t take much monitoring since Kincaid is motivated to go as far as he can with things. Then Deadpool comes in proclaiming himself an X-Men and wearing an X-Men uniform which clearly says 'X-Men' on it. He gets in front of cameras and very clearly says, ‘Don’t worry Scott, I got this. I’m going to shoot this guy.' So now that Deadpool is in motion, Osborn isn’t going after him. He’s going to aid him.

"Osborn sends over two H.A.M.M.E.R. agents who, hours ago, were pushing around a mail cart," Way continued. "He puts them in suits, does not give them guns and says, ‘Go protect this guy who is being stalked by one of the most dangerous men on the planet.’ They’re like, ‘Okay! Dude, we’re H.A.M.M.E.R. agents!’"

On December 9th, the "Want You to Want Me" arc comes to a conclusion with the release of "Deadpool" #18. "I hope readers know at this point that this issue isn’t going to be what you expected it to be," Way stated. "There will be a showdown that takes place right in the middle of San Francisco. It will involve the X-Men and explosions and it will be big."

January's "Deadpool" #19 kicks off the "Whatever a Spider Can" arc, which will find Deadpool in New York City with the hope that Spider-Man will aid him in his quest to be a hero "For the super arc of our current Deadpool story, we're looking at the two sides of the heroic spectrum. You've got the organized, almost military-style teams like the X-Men, and then you have Spider-Man, who does have ties to the Avengers, but for the most part operates independently. He does his own thing. He's a smartass who doesn't wear a team uniform and has a singular identity like Deadpool," Way remarked. "Most importantly, though, New Yorkers love Spider-Man, and to have an audience that size really appeals to Deadpool. However, it's become clear that Deadpool doesn't really know how to be a good X-Man, so putting him in a situation where there's infinitely less structure is disastrous."

Much like he did with the X-Men, Deadpool approaches Spider-Man directly about joining him in his heroic escapades in the hopes of becoming the Web-Slinger's sidekick. "Spider-Man is like, 'You can't be serious! This has to be a set up! What are you setting me up for?' Things get even more complicated when Hitman Monkey gets thrown into the mix," Way revealed. "Bodies start showing up. These are professional hits, too. So Deadpool is in town, and there's a string of professional assassinations? You don't have to be a genius to put those factors together.

"Deadpool is going to proclaim his innocence loud and often," Way continued. "He's aware of the legend of Hitman Monkey. It's a boogeyman myth amongst professional assassins and mercenaries. So Deadpool's explanation of, 'No Spider-Man, that wasn't me. That was a monkey!' isn't really going to hold water."

Readers will first meet Hitman Monkey in a story on Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited by Way and artist Dalibor Talajic, that will later be collected in the "Hitman Monkey" one-shot, which hits stores in February. "Hitman Monkey is a 40-pound engine of destruction. The digital comic will be the two part origin of Hitman Monkey," Way stated. "Then the print version of 'The Legend of Hitman Monkey' hits stores the same month as 'Deadpool' #20. So if you pick up Deadpool and are wondering who Hitman Monkey, is just look online or down the shelf and the one-shot will be there. It explains his origin, where he came from, and why he's on the path that he's currently on."

Deadpool and Hitman Monkey won't be the only ones causing trouble in the "Whatever a Spider Can" arc. Way revealed that a couple of characters from Deadpool's past will be appearing in the arc in supporting roles.

Regular "Deadpool" artist Paco Medina will draw the entire "Want You to Want Me Arc," while "Whatever a Spider Can" finds the art chores split between Medina and artist Carlo Barberi ("Deadpool: Suicide Kings"). "Carlo and Paco are having the time of their lives with 'Whatever a Spider Can.' It's an extremely dynamic arc. It's becoming a battle of who can strike the most insane poses," Way said. "They've got Deadpool, Spider-Man, and Hitman Monkey, so it's going to play out like the most insane chop sockey flick, but with more Western than Eastern fighting styles."

The months ahead are going to be a tumultuous time for the Marvel Universe. A number of event stories will be rocking the MU to it's core, and Deadpool has a part to play in one of them; "DoomWar," a five issue mini-series which begins in February and finds Wade Wilson aiding The former and current Black Panthers, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four in a battle against Doctor Doom. The "Deadpool" series won't be tying in to "DoomWar," but it's possible that the series may have a fun nod to "Siege," the Avengers story that begins next month. "Norman Osborn is going up against not only the Norse Gods, but the assembled classic Avengers [as well]," Way said. "That's some Must See TV for Wade Wilson. It's the Thrilla-In-Manilla. He's got to see it."

2009 was a big year for Deadpool, and Way is very grateful for all the fans, retailers, and other creators who have gotten behind the character. "I really appreciate all the support this book has gotten from the first issue. Everything is coming up Deadpool right now," the writer said. "When we started, we were pretty territorial about keeping Deadpool in our book, but as momentum built around the series, it just made sense for the character to get another series and start popping up in other books. Creators are fans of the character too. They look at Deadpool and want a piece of that instant fun. To throw Deadpool into your book is like spiking the punch. And I totally understand that. If I wasn't writing the ongoing series, I'd sure as hell have him show up in one of my books."

Sobre o arco “Want You to Want Me”, Deadpool tentará forçar sua entrada nos X-Men, o que trará conseqüências não muito boas para a vida deles. No ano que vem, sua tentativa de ser um herói continua em “Whatever a Spider Can”, em que ele encontra o Homem-Aranha.

Sua intenção em se tornar um super-herói se deve ao fato de ele querer um trabalho que o faça se sentir melhor. Contudo, seu próprio jeito de ser impede que isso seja feito de forma gradual: se ele quer ser um X-Men, ele acha que a hora é agora – já tem o uniforme e tudo o que precisa. Conseguir se tornar um X-Men a todo custo é o que o motiva, mas não o resultado final, e sim a jornada.

De cara, ele é rejeitado por Ciclope, mas Wolverine acredita que há uma saída melhor, pois simplesmente recusá-lo não seria o suficiente. Ciclope encarrega Domino de vigiá-lo, enquanto planeja com Wolverine um plano para convencer Wade de deixar São Francisco. A natureza maluca de Deadpool faz com que ele não caia no plano dos X-Men. Só que sua fuga acaba por envolver os X-Men em um escândalo de relações pública, pois Wade planeja matar o pai de Mercury, que recentemente havia começado uma campanha midiática contra o grupo mutante.

Em Deadpool #17, Wade tenta matar Ellis Kincaid em frente às câmeras e Scott manda Domino e Logan para impede-lo, iniciando uma caçada por Deadpool. E as coisas pioram quando Osborn vê a cena na TV. Osborn e Deadpool se envolveram recentemente, quando Wade quis se vingar de Norman, por este ter lhe roubado os planos de matar a Rainha Skrull.

Contudo, com Wade prejudicando publicamente os X-Men, Norman quer agora ajudá-lo a concretizar seu plano de acabar com Ellis Kincaid, colocando a HAMMER na jogada. Deadpool #18, que chega às bancas amanhã, mostra a conclusão do arco, com direito à participação dos X-Men.

Em Deadpool #19, que sai em janeiro, Wade vai para Nova Iorque, com esperanças de que Peter possa ajudá-lo a ser um herói. Só que haverá uma participação muito importante no arco: o Macaco Hitman, recém-revelado pela editora, que começa a matar como um professional. Com Deadpool na cidade, quem vocês acham que sera acusado? Deadpool, é claro, que vai se declarer inocente. Wade conhece Hitman, uma lenda dentro dos assassinos e mercenários profissionais.

Hitman fará sua estreia em uma HQ digital, feita por Way e Dalibor Talajic. A sequencia da história sairá nas bancas no mesmo mês de Deadpool #20. Outros personagens do passado de Deadpool também aparecerão durante o arco.

O desenhista de Deadpool:Suicide Kings, Carlo Barbieri, une o lapis com Paco Medina para o arco com o Aranha.

Nos próximos meses, Deadpool sera parte importante dentro do Universo Marvel, aparecendo na mini DoomWar, que terá cinco edições e começa em fevereiro. Wade ajudará os dois Panteras, os X-Men e o Quarteto Fantástico contra o Destino. Contudo, a série Deadpool não terá um tie-in com a mini, mas pode ser que haja algum ponto de convergência com Siege, que começa em janeiro.

Para completar, Way está bastante satisfeito e agradecido com os fãs pelo excelente ano das histórias de Deadpool.

X-Position com Kieron Gillen, roteirista de SWORD:

Spoiler:


Here at X-POSITION, we carefully study the mutant corner of the Marvel Universe every week. In doing so, we know that homo-superiors are the next stage in human evolution (provided they don't become extinct). So where do alien races fit into this equation? Well, according to a few individuals - like Henry Gyrich - who work at S.W.O.R.D., they don't.
S.W.O.R.D. (the Sentient World Observation and Response Department) is an intelligence and counterterrorism organization. Headed by Agent Abigail Brand, they are supposed to monitor and head off alien attacks on earth. As seen in "Secret Invasion," however, they failed…miserably. Henry Gyrich has now been given the position of co-commander of S.W.O.R.D., and he's working off an agenda that is quite different from Brand's (who is, herself, part extraterrestrial). Sparks are about to fly, andX-Men Beast (Brand's current boyfriend) and Lockheed are coming along for the ride.
Kieron Gillen ("Phonogram," "Dark Avengers: Ares," and "Thor") is the writer of the new ongoing "S.W.O.R.D." series. Issue #2 is in stores tomorrow, and readers can expect everything from sneak attacks to military coups. There's bound to be questions, so in a preemptive strike, Gillen joins us today to answer your emails. Ready to do battle?

CBR: Hunter Lambright starts things off today with a few queries on gods, robots, and giant projectiles:
1) How hard or easy was it to make the changeover from writing gods ("Dark Avengers: Ares") to writing a space-monitoring agency?

KG: For me, writing is all about research. So doing "Ares" and "Thor," I've been backpacking around the afterlife for a few weeks. I was crashing on Ra's sofa, and picking up some tips and going to his crazy parties. You wouldn't believe the scenes.
(Oh, rough guide to the divinities' spheres tip: don't go to an Egyptian Party if you've got a cat allergy).
Anyway, I when I realized I had a S.W.O.R.D. script due, I had to get out of there ASAP and call in a favor with a mate with a UFO (I'll identify it - it's a flying saucer) and go hang out with some extraterrestrials. I got lots of great material, but got a bit tipsy and woke up with an Alpha Centurian lady. Shame and regret. I do these things for you, true believers.
In short, I found it worryingly easy. They feed into different parts of my imagination. It's great having an outlet for both.

CBR: 2) It's obvious (to me, anyway) that you're building Unit up as both a threat and as a storyline that's going to have a big payoff. How long before we see Unit's story come to a head?

KG: That's totally the sort of question you ask, but you'll be disappointed if I actually gave you a straight answer. I'm going to have to be as deceptive as Unit itself.
Not that he's deceptive. He's entirely trustworthy and has no ill-intentions towards the rest of existence. He's in that cell just because it's the only room they had available on the Peak. He won't skin you. Just let him out, turn around, and count to forty.

CBR: 3) Beyond the (awesome) backup story with Lockheed, will the Kitty-Bullet storyline eventually be finished in "S.W.O.R.D.," or will we have to look to other books for closure?

KG: I think it's safe to say it'll be a little while yet before the issue of the troublesome space-bullet will be resolved. Lockheed is going to need more Jack Daniels.

CBR: WhoZeDuke would like a spot of tea with his cosmic adventures. Any chance you could help him out?
First of all, I really like everything you are doing at Marvel, especially "Dark Avengers: Ares." Regarding "S.W.O.R.D.," will we see more characters from the British corner of the MU appear? Personally, I'd love to see Pete Wisdom show up in a scene with Brand…

KG: Thank you! Regarding Mr. Wisdom, I'm not sure the Peak is big enough to house those two particularly gargantuan egos; though I'll agree, it would be fun to watch. At the moment, I've no specific plans for any more Marvel UK characters bar our favorite freelance peacekeeping agent.

CBR: Also, any news on when the last two issues of "The Singles Club" will be out?

KG: Crikey! A crossover reader. Cage them.
In an unprecedented event, issue #6 of "Phonogram" is actually out this week, less than a month from the previous one. It's probably a sign of the end times. I haven't got a date for the seventh yet, but I suspect early January. We're disappointed we couldn't get it all out before 2010 - because it's the most 00s book in existence, y'know - but the universe and our own uselessness have conspired against us. Hopefully, it'll be worth the wait.

CBR: Up next, Jeff Burger is curious as to how Earth and its heroes factor into S.W.O.R.D.'s adventures:
1) Since "Annihilation," Marvel's Cosmic Universe continues to be ripe with stories and shows no signs of slowing down. With "S.W.O.R.D.," I am wondering if we are going to see more stories tying earth in with the cosmic universe to a greater extent. Will "S.W.O.R.D." focus more on earth issues, cosmic issues, or try and balance the two?

KG: I see S.W.O.R.D. exist on the meniscus between the cosmic and earth spheres. Ideally, I'd want to draw stories from how the cosmic events impact earth. In other words, I want to be able to draw from both.

CBR: 2) Can we expect to see Spider-Woman in any issues of "S.W.O.R.D.," as she was made an agent in the first issue of her new series?

KG: She turns up in issue #2 for a brief cameo. I'm using "cameo" in its true technical meaning of "banging someone's head into the pavement".

CBR: 3) Will S.W.O.R.D. have any interactions with earth's heroes? With Beast as a member, will there be many dealings with the X-Men? What about other teams such as the Avengers (‘Mighty' or ‘New')?

KG: Cyclops and White Queen turn up towards the close of issue 2. The Mighty or New Avengers aren't showing up in this arc, but the Dark Avengers appear in issue 4.
There's a lot of cameos in the first arc. It's a story about a global action. We're using all manner of hyper-compression techniques to try and show the scale and variety of what's going on.

CBR: There's another cameo Sami Dawed is hoping for. What do you say?
I loved the first "S.W.O.R.D." issue! When I looked at the upcoming solicits, Karolina Dean is mentioned twice and her face appears as one of the many Gyrich is studying. With the recent hiatus status of "Runaways" announced, are you going to reference the cliffhanger of the final "Runaways" issue before moving her into "S.W.O.R.D."? Can you share any other details about her upcoming appearance?

KG: Thank you, Sami! Glad you enjoyed it. Regarding Miss Dean, she actually appears in issue #2 in one of the aforementioned cameos, and has a speaking scene in issue #3. And that's all I'm saying. You can't make me say more. Well, you could, but it'd involve torture, and you seem far too nice a person to apply white-hot brands to the bare soles of my feet.

CBR: Sami is too nice. Chrisss Topher, however, has some fiery pokers for you if you try and avoid his questions…
1) Any chance of the Starjammers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova Corps, or any of the other Marvel cosmic groups making an appearance?

KG: Not in the first arc. This is very much an inwardly-looking story rather than playing on the cosmic scale. I'd love to do one though. I can imagine Brand has particularly sharp things to say about all of them. She's a very mean woman.

CBR: 2) I know Thor and Asgard will be involved in a huge story very soon, but is there any chance of a Thor/S.W.O.R.D. story?

KG: Well, Beta Ray Bill's dependent - as introduced in "Beta Ray Bill: Godhunter" (available now in a fine trade paperback edition!) - is a resident of the Peak, so there's a link between these two parts of the Marvel Universe. Nothing explicitly planned as of yet - though I imagine Gyrich did at least think about whether the Asgardians counted as "aliens," before deciding he had enough on his plate right now. Bill does turn up in a few cameos throughout, most noticeably in issue #5.
I've used the word "cameo" far too much in this interview. Forgive me. Consider me punished, as I've now got "Word Up!" stuck in my head.

CBR: Dammit - it's stuck in my head now too. I'm hoping it stops by the time you finish answering these five queries from Andre4000:
1) Thanks so much for bringing back Death's Head - he was one of my favorite Marvel characters from the 90s! I remember him as being a rather "bloody" character. Is he going to be an ongoing nuisance for S.W.O.R.D., or is his appearance now a one-time bit of fun?

KG: I was giggling when bringing back Death's Head. He was absolutely perfect for the tone of the series. Yes, he's violent, but there's a playfulness underlying everything. A mercenary who's as mercenary as Death's Head is an interesting one to lob into the mix.
Death's Head is actually a constant presence across the first arc. The hefty combat/fisticuffs/blast-out (or, as you may call it, "fight") in the second issue should give you a taste of how I'm using him.

CBR: 2) With Gyrich's mission of ridding earth of aliens, will he be going after some of the more well-known aliens? How about the new Captain Marvel (a.k.a. Marvel Boy), Beta Ray Bill, the Silver Surfer (or is he not on earth at the moment)?

KG: Yes, yes and no respectively; although if the Surfer popped in, Gyrich would have a crack. Somehow.
As people will see in the second issue, Gyrich has been planning this for long time. He's got continuity plans for most of the ones who you'd think would be tricky to get. Clearly, you can't just walk up to a lot of these people and say "Go home."
Admittedly, the Dreaming Celestial is going to be awkward.

CBR: 3) An X-character I enjoy (but haven't seen in awhile) is Hepzibah. Will she be making an appearance in this book? She might be a valuable asset to have as a member of S.W.O.R.D.

KG: She would be a valuable asset, but I suspect she's going to be holding a grudge against S.W.O.R.D. for some time after what they do to her in the second issue.

CBR: 4) Can you foresee any future storylines where S.W.O.R.D. will cross paths with Galactus? He's a huge ongoing threat to earth…

KG: He is. You can only imagine how something like Galactus gets under Brand's skin. It's her worst nightmare in an enormous genocidal purple-helmeted form. Admittedly, I've got no immediate plans to use him; however, if you want to see how Brand actually thinks about Galactus, I'll direct you at the first and last issues of "Beta Ray Bill: Godhunter" (available now in a fine trade paperback edition, if you haven't heard!), where Brand and Bill have a good old chin-wag about him.

CBR: 5) It feels like Unit is something we've seen before…or maybe not. Is he/she/it a new threat? Or just a new iteration of something we've seen before? Can you give us any hints?

KG: Why do people keep on going on about Unit being a threat? He's lovely. Honestly, let him out and everything will be fine.
Okay, you'll know Unit a lot better by the end of the first arc. Or at least, you'll know what he's telling people…which you should believe every word of, because there's no chance he'd ever do something as foul as lie to you. I mean, look at that cherubic blue-robotic face. If you can't trust him, who can you trust?
Let him out. He will not skin you.

CBR: That's twice you've mentioned "skinning" when talking about Unit. I'm frightened.
We're through with reader email for the day; now it'smy turn. We ask our guests a "get-to-know-you" question each week, so here's yours…and we'll make it S.W.O.R.D.-related! Do you think extraterrestrials exist? And do you believe they've been to Earth yet? Why or why not?

KG: They exist and haven't been to earth yet because it's covered in humans. Or they landed in my home town of Stafford, looked around and decided it really wasn't worth staying. Or…yes! Of course Aliens exist! I have the DVD box-set, etc.

Oh, it's a tricky one, y'know? You can't boil it down to a simple answer. It always struck me as fairly arrogant to think that we're the only life in the galaxy. Conversely, there's the Fermi paradox, which is a tricky one to get around - though I like seeing people come up with glorious theories about it (the "all sentient life gets to a certain spot, then gets stuck playing something like World of Warcraft" one is a perennial fave).

Generally speaking, and looking at the evidence, I think sentient life is a rare and precious commodity. But you don't need to bring extraterrestrials into that to be true.

Re: X-Position

Mensagem  leonardobento em Ter Dez 08 2009, 20:48

O X-Position dessa semana é com Kieron Gillen, roteirista de SWORD. Após escrever Dark Avengers: Ares, o autor tem a tarefa de escrever uma revista sobre a agência de monitoramento espacial da Marvel. Para ele, para conseguir fazer um ótimo trabalho, o essencial é pesquisa, tanto para escrever sobre deuses, quanto para aventuras especiais. No caso da SWORD, ele mergulhou em assuntos de OVNIs, material sobre extraterrestres: muita coisa que o fez exercitar sua imaginação.

Gillen trouxe, entre muitos personagens, o robô Unit. Ele não pretende explorar a história por detrás do personagem, mas ser tão obtuso quanto Unit. Os leitores o veem como uma ameaça, mas ele não é necessariamente uma. Ficaremos sabendo mais sobre ele no final do primeiro arco.

Ele também tratou, em uma história de backup, sobre como está Lockheed, após o sumiço de Kitty. Essa questão ainda não está definida e ainda precisaremos esperar mais tempo para que isso aconteça. Nesse ínterim, Lochheed continuará na fossa.

Sobre personagens britânicos, Pete Wisdom não deve dar as caras, pois o espaço será pequeno demais para os egos dele e da Agente Brand, mesmo que fosse engraçado. Não há planos para a interação com outros personagens da Marvel UK. Quanto a outras aparições de personagens Marvel, temos a Mulher-Aranha com uma breve aparição na edição #2, assim como o Ciclope e a Rainha Branca. Os Vingadores Sombrios aparecem na edição #4. Karolina Dean, de Fugitivos, ela também aparece por todo o primeiro arco, incluindo uma fala na edição #3.

Quanto à interação da parte cósmica da editora com a Terra, ele acredita que SWORD trabalha justamente na interseção entre a parte cósmica e a terrestre, o que o deixa com vontade de fazer histórias que mostrem o impacto das aventuras espaciais em nosso planeta.

No primeiro arco, pelo menos, não haverá interação com outros grupos cósmicos, como os Piratas Siderais, os Guardiães da Galáxica e a tropa dos Novas. Como Bill Raio Beta está morando na estação espacial “Peak”, haverá alguma ligação com a história – vejam a edição #5 -, mesmo que nada tenha sido planejado. Contudo, com a nova diretiva de Gyrich de tirar todos os aliens da Terra, ele deve considerar os asgardianos como extraterrestres. Ele também poderá ir atrás de outros aliens importantes, como o Capitão Marvel, mas não que isso seja algo simples de se fazer. Galactus não está nos planos imediatos.

Death’s Head será uma presença constante ao longo do primeiro arco. As cenas de ação da segunda edição indicarão como Gillen vai usá-lo. Outro personagem importante será Hepzibah. Ela guardará um profundo rancor da SWORD pelo que eles farão com ela na segunda edição.

As primeiras respostas dessas múltiplas dúvidas começam a aparecer na segunda edição, nas comic shops no dia 9 de dezembro.

Quesada respondendo aos fãs:

Spoiler:


CBR: odmark asked about backups over in the X-Universe, saying, "In regards to backup stories has there been any consideration in giving Uncanny X-Men a regular backup feature? The X-books have such a huge cast right now (which I like BTW) that lots of characters get pretty light screen time and for a while I've been thinking that a regular backup focusing on different characters or plot points that didn't fit into an arc might be a good idea. Could be done in place or in tandem with the semi regular anthology minis we've been getting like 'Nation X' and 'Manifest Destiny?'"

JQ: The idea of backups is a good idea, podmark, and the X-Men group is considering that at the moment. It just depends on the story and the characters that we feel fit well with respect to being backups. But if you're talking about a monthly X-title that wraps up loose ends or visits characters we haven't seen in a while – it's not something we're looking to do at the moment, as it takes a solid hook to try to make something like that sell. Backups that allow us to keep in touch with the more tangential characters and storylines within the X-verse are a more feasible option for us right now.

CBR: With such a big cast populating "Uncanny" and the other books these days, how different is the X-Franchise today from when there were so many mutants before "House of M" paired down the mutant population? Have those changes held?

JQ: I think they've absolutely held, and a lot of the stories we're telling today we wouldn't have been able to tell without "House of M." It's not so much about how many particular X-Men characters appear on a page. It's more about what's going on tonally in the world of X-Men where they're supposed to be a minority – part of a downtrodden race who is feared and loathed. That particular core metaphor at the heart of X-Men starts to resonate less and less when you bump into mutants around every corner of the Marvel Universe.

There was a time when it felt like, as a reader, you were bumping into mutants everywhere, in every Marvel book. It felt like there were fewer normal people than there were mutants in the world. I mean, I get it, the X franchise is huge, and the temptation is to create more and more mutant characters, but at the end of the day, you still want to create the feeling that they are a small minority, a blip on the screen of the world populace. It's tough to tell stories about what is supposedly an endangered species when they keep popping up everywhere.

The idea was to whittle it down so that the core metaphor, which has always been perfect from the day it was created, could work properly again. Once in place, it allows us to tell stories that put the cast within its own ticking evolutionary clock. So, regardless of whether you see one or ten mutants within an issue, or even a page, tonally the world has been reset to make the reader (again, if we've done our job right) feel like these mutants are scarce and truly struggling for survival. They are still a very small minority and have to watch each others' backs. That's what we wanted to get to, and I think it still stands. If anything, I think Axel and his group have managed to amplify that feeling even more.

Ele gosta da ideia de backups, mas não farão nenhum título regular que só traga histórias curtas de personagens que não são trabalhados nos títulos principais. A ideia é manter fazendo essas minis com histórias de backup sempre relacionadas a um evento maior, como Nation x.

A franquia-X mudou muito com Dinastia M e a maior parte das histórias que lemos hoje só puderam ser escritas graças a esse evento. A questão não é quantos X-Men existem e são retratados em uma página, mas sim como eles vivem em um mundo sendo uma esmagadora minoria. Essa ideia perde o vigor se tivermos milhares de mutantes espalhados pelo Universo Marvel. Chegou um momento em que os mutantes estavam em todo lugar, como se não fossem uma minoria. É claro que a franquia-X é enorme, mas a situação estava caótica, e era difícil escrever histórias sobre uma espécie ameaçada se havia espécimes em todo o lugar.

Com Dinastia M, eles voltaram ao seu ponto inicial e lutam agora com a probabilidade evolucionária de serem extintos. Os leitores precisam sentir que eles são uma minoria ameaçada e temorosa com a possibilidade da extinção. Eles ainda são minoria e precisam continuar se preocupando com suas vidas.

Eu não postei acima, mas ele também falou que já estão preparando para publicar nos EUA a edição especial dos X-Men feita na Itália por Claremont e Manara. O anúncio será feito em breve.

Daqui a 2 horas saberemos. Espero que seja algo com os Novos X-Men para começar depois de Second Coming, quando mudarem o foco de Legacy de novo.

Pensando agora, pode ser um título fixo que continue as histórias de Dark X-Men - pelo menos a mesma equipe, já que o Reinado Sombrio está acabando.

X-Position com o Cornell:

Spoiler:

If you've read any Marvel comic in the past year, you would know that there's a new hero calling the shots for the rest of the Marvel Universe – Norman Osborn. Yes, the same Norman Osborn who used to terrorize Spider-Man as the Green Goblin is now leading the Avengers…well, the Avengers team that the American public knows about.

This team (known as the "Dark Avengers" to readers) consists of ex-convicts and morally compromised individuals, with Osborn himself leading them as the Iron Patriot. Not content to merely rule over the superhuman population, Osborn has also decided to make his presence known among the mutants by forming his own team of "Dark X-Men."

Led by Mystique, this group of mutants has already experienced several betrayals and reversals in it's short history. Currently, they face a threat that's almost ironic, given its name – X-Man. That's right, the alternate universe Nate Grey is back…or, at least, he's on the verge of coming back. Not fully corporeal, he exists in a state that's neither here nor there; however, if he does get "here," the Dark X-Men can expect a reckoning.

Joining us for today's X-POSITION to answer your questions about this team of menacing mutants and what X-Man's return might mean is writer Paul Cornell. He's braced himself for your emails, and is even willing to discuss his recent series "Captain Britain and MI:13." Ready for things to get a little dark?

Mundungus kicks things off today with a little praise, which is always a good way to begin…
I'm loving "Dark X-Men." It's more like ‘Dark X-Factor (Vol. 1),' except they are "evil" mutants pretending to be "heroic" mutants solving mutant problems. Still, I like it.
I am really interested in the continuing story of Michael Pointer – are you planning to develop him beyond kooky one-liners? He went from the unluckiest, but well-meaning guy in the world to an energy-siphoning crackhead. I just want to see him built up as a viable character. He's certainly at a dark moment in his life, but I hope there is a break in the clouds…


Thanks. I'm very much concerned with exactly the character development you mention. You'll have seen, in issue #2, the start of Michael showing what's going on underneath his power-holic exterior.
He does tragedy rather than comedy, as will become clear. He's a very important character for me, embodying the funny/horrifying thing I hope to do with this book, and I hope that comes across.

Patrick Bateman worries about the entire mutant race and wonders if there's a Dark X-Man who might be willing to lend a hand…or paw.
Before the Dark Beast was in Norman Osborn's employment, he and his doppelganger were attempting to reignite the mutant race. While the 616 Beast may have thrown in the towel, is it possible this is still on DB's backburner and that he might be using Norman's resources to continue his mission?


I think that might occur to him when things have settled down a bit. He's interested in every line of biological research, and finds that Osborn's reign gives him more space to pursue things, free of ethical constraint. But we won't be tackling that in this mini. Sorry.

Hunter Lambright – one of our X-POSITION regulars – believes Dark Beast might be busy with something other than experiments soon:
1) With both Dark Beast and X-Man showing up in the same book, how much can fans expect to see sparks fly as the two characters inevitably meet up thanks to their "Age of Apocalypse" history together?


Absolutely. If Nate ever fully gets to our reality, fully powered, then Henry is pretty certain he's toast.

2) With their team size cut in half after "Utopia," will we see any more additions to the Dark X-Men during your run? Or is the focus directly on the four characters you have on the team for this mini?

We're only aware of having this mini at the moment, and I'm happy with the team I've got. Of course, if we sell shelf-loads and get to continue, then I'm up for that too, and have loads of troubled and conflicted mutants I'd like to feature. I'll just mention one: Sauron. Probably under a new codename, unless he himself is fleeing the copyright lawyers…which would be kind of fun.

Joshua Hetherington is curious about another dark mutant that he sees as "fun."
1) Why isn't Daken in "Dark X-Men"? He didn't defect to the X-Men like Cloak and Dagger, Namor or Emma did – it seems he would've made a good addition…


Obviously, any character called Wolverine is very much limited as to the number of books he can appear in. Seriously, you'd have to ask my editors, but I suspect it's a Dark Avengers continuity thing. I'd love to have him onboard: great character, and Marjorie's really shown depth to him.

2) Were there any things you wanted to write in "Captain Britain and MI:13" that you never got the chance to? Maybe get Kitty out of that freaking bullet? Or get Rachel back in our solar system?

I'd love to have had Pete Wisdom rescue Kitty, but that looks like a S.W.O.R.D. thing now. The very vague discussions (and this a few mouthfuls of one lunch) we had about going forward mentioned Rachel and the Fury, and we also talked slightly about a crossover with Secret Warriors.

As long as we're talking about "Captain Britain and MI:13," Bkdane was hoping you might spill the beans about a Dane he's fond of…
Can you tell us where you were going to take the relationship between Dane and Faiza if "Captain Britain and MI:13" was not canceled?


I had no specific plans, but now I'd like to see them get married. But that's how I feel about everyone.
Are you married? Well, you should be. To any gender, I don't care about that, I just like weddings.

Well, Willow616 just likes "Captain Britain and MI:13" and is experiencing some serious withdrawal. Is there anything you can say that will help stave off the suffering?
I'm a massive (obsessive, and possibly a bit scary-like) fan of "Captain Britain and MI:13" and have shed a river of tears since its passing. Will we ever see a miniseries of the title? Maybe once a year? Pleeeeeeaaassseee?


I direct the Marvel massive to the above and plead my case. Please?
Please, please, please? I know, it's kind of pathetic of me. I do hope we get to do more in some way or form.

There are so many plot threads left to tie up – the Shang-Chi/Killraven situation being one of my personal faves. And judging by the ending of "Vampire Nation," was there a role call change on the cards? I'm loving "Dark X-Men," by the way…

Thanks. I wanted to keep the team with the same official status. That made them different, I feel. And yes, Young Killraven would be cool.

Grey wrote in because he, naturally, had questions about Nate Grey.
Let me start off by saying "Captain Britain and MI:13" was one of my favorite series, and it's missed. Secondly, thank you for bringing Nate Grey back – he's my fave. With that said, I have a few questions.
1) Why bring Nate back now? Was it your idea or did it come from the "powers-that-be?"


It came from (X-Men Editor) Nick Lowe, who's definitely a power that is. But I always loved Nate, so I'm happy.

2) Will "Dark X-Men" lead into "X-Men: Second Coming" in any way?

I don't think so, unless Nick has specific plans for...whoever's left at the end of this.

3) What other projects are you working on (in comics or other media)?

Hopefully a novel this coming year, loads of telly I can't talk about, and "Indomitable Iron Man," amongst some other lovely stuff for Marvel that, yes, I can't talk about. Sorry! But thanks for asking.
Should be a fun year ahead for me. Oh, and at my blog (www.paulcornell.com) I've just started the "12 Blogs of Christmas," with new content every day, including some "Dark X-Men" exclusives.

Sounds better than two turtle doves! RickyD410 had a query about the field leader for the Dark X-Men, mostly concerning her motives…
Usually, Mystique is the type of character who would only do something if she could somehow gain from it. What do you think Mystique hopes to gain by working with Osborn and his Dark X-Men?


She doesn't have a choice. It's that or be exploded. But she seeks to escape with every breath.

If Mystique does escape, there is a surprise waiting for her, courtesy of "X-Men: Necrosha." And Brian wanted to know how Mystique might feel about this little Christmas present:
1) Are there any plans for Mystique and her team to confront Selene and her deadly group – especially now that Destiny has been resurrected?


That happens after the end of this mini, I should think, so that's down to someone else. Clearly, Mystique doesn't know about Destiny during this mini, and the whole story takes place only over something like three days.

2) X-Man is a very interesting character. I hope with the craziness in the X-universe he doesn't become dead (again) or lose his powers. Are there any long-term plans for his future or his new mission that you can fill us in on?

Nick wanted to have him back, and that's all I can say.

That's it from the fans, so it's my turn for our weekly peek "Behind the X." As a way of getting to know our X-writers, here's a little non-comic question for you: since the holidays are fast approaching, what holiday tradition from your childhood was your favorite?

I always enjoyed helping to tidy up the living room and put up the tree, with the same decorations every year. I used to do that with my Auntie Jen. Thanks for asking; that brought back a little warm glow…


Resumirei assim que chegar em casa!

Quanto a cancelamentos, Wolverine:Origins acaba na edição 50 e será cancelado. Wolverine volta para o título dele. Então, pode ser algo que envolva Daken.

Cable deve ser cancelado, mas ainda não é oficial. Só o que é oficial é que não haverá título dele durante Second Coming, o que é um forte indício de que não continua depois. Rumores dizem que ele vai para a X-Force, junto com seu escritor.

Re: X-Position

Resumo do X-Position:

O assunto mais abordado foi a volta de Nate Grey que dá todo o tom dessa mini-série. A idéia de trazer Nate grey de volta foi do editor Nick Lowe, mas Cornell sempre amou o personagem, por isso está muito feliz em poder escrevê-lo. O editor quer que ele continue no universo Marvel, logo, não morrerá novamente, por enquanto.

Os outros personagens da mini também foram abordados:

-Cornell tratará mais do desenvolvimento de Michael Pointer como um bom personagem e isso já pode ser visto na edição 2. Ele é um personagem importante para tudo o que ele pretende fazer de cômico e de horripilante nessa mini.

-O Fera Negro está no grupo por ter interesse no que o reino de Osborn tem a lhe oferecer, isto é, um espaço para que ele desenvolva sua pesquisa biológica livre de qualquer limitação ética. Infelizmente, isso não será explorado em Dark X-Men.

-Tendo o Fera Negro e o X-Man em uma mesma revista, com certeza teremos uma continuação de sua relação de Era do Apocalipse – então é bom o Fera Negro se preparar, porque ele sabe que está frito.

-Mística é uma personagem que sempre faz algo esperando uma recompense. Mas agora, trabalhando com Osborn, ela não tem escolha: ou faz isso ou é explodida, mas a cada momento ela segue procurando um jeito de escapar.

-Durante Utopia, a equipe perdeu metade dos seus membros (Manto, Adaga, Namor, Emma), mas, como é apenas uma mini, não haverá novas adições nos Dark X-Men. Se as histórias continuarem algum dia, Cornell gostaria de mais mutantes problemáticos, como Sauron.

-Outro que deixou a equipe foi Daken, mas, diferentemente dos outros, não foi para os X-Men. Cornell disse que qualquer personagem chamado Wolverine está limitado ao tamanho número de revistas em que aparece e a (não) participação dele em Dark X-Men foi decisão editorial, ligada provavelmente à sua participação nos Dark Avengers.

Dark X-Men não deve ter nenhuma relação com Second Coming, a menos que Nick Lowe tenha planos específicos para algum personagem que o autor não revelou. (Quem sabe Nate Grey é mais um a se juntar à saga...)

Também não há planos que ligem Dark X-Men a Necrosha, pois a mini é anterior a esse novo cross. A Mística, então, com certeza não sabe ainda sobre a volta de Sina, pois a volta ainda nem aconteceu. Além disso, por mais que sejam 5 histórias, saindo uma por mês, os eventos narrados em Dark X-Men duram 3 dias.

Falando sobre a revista do Capitão Britânia, recente trabalho de Cornell, ele diz que adoraria poder ter escrito o resgate de Kitty pelas mãos de Pete Wisdom, mas isso é algo que tem mais a ver com a SWORD agora. Durante o processo criativo no título, eles também chegaram a discutir sobre mencionar a Rachel, a Fúria e um crossover com os Secret Warriors.

O relacionamento entre Dane e Faiza aparece em outra pergunta relacionada ao título do Capitão Britânia. Cornell não tem planos específicos para escrevê-los, mas adoraria vê-los casados.

DanReztek escreveu:Saiu o X-Position dessa semana com o escritor de Dark X-Men. Mas o que me deixou curioso mesmo (além das imagens) foi que no finalzinho diz "X-Fans, stay tuned! At 4:00PM EST, 1:00 PM PST, CBR will have an EXCLUSIVE announcement regarding a brand-new X-Title!", o q será q vem por aí? scratch

Foi anunciado: X-Factor Forever, com Louise Simonson, a partir de março.

A ideia é a mesma de X-Men Forever, recontar as histórias de X-Factor, desde o ponto em que Simonson deixou o título, também em 1991.

São os X-Men originais de volta!!

Spoiler:


In September of 1963, comic book history was made when Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's "The X-Men" #1 hit stores. In the pages of that seminal Marvel Comics issue, readers were introduced to Cyclops, the Beast, Iceman Angel and Marvel Girl, the original student body of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. 23 years later, writer Bob Layton and artist Jackson Guice would reassemble the original X-Men for a new series titled "X-Factor."

In July of 1986, writer Louise Simonson took over "X-Factor" and began a five year run that would introduce and establish some of the more prominent elements of X-Men mythology, such as the arch-villain Apocalypse and Warren Worthington's transformation from Angel to the blue skinned Archangel.

In March of 2010, Simonson will return to the original X-Men character once again with the five issue "X-Factor: Forever" mini-series, featuring art by Dan Panosian. CBR News spoke with Simonson about the project which is set in an alternate Marvel Universe and picks up where her original "X-Factor" run left off.

CBR News: How did "X-Factor: Forever" come about and what was it that drew you to the assignment?

Louise Simonson: Mark Paniccia asked me if I'd be interested in doing an "X-Factor: Forever" miniseries, picking up after the end of "X-Factor" #64. That was my last issue before I left Marvel to do "Superman: Man of Steel" over at DC.
I thought the idea was interesting, but [I felt that] that I'd better re-read my old "X-Factor" comics before I committed. It had been awhile since I wrote that book and, while I remembered the characters vividly, the details on the stories were kinda hazy.
Kinda? Heck, there was a lot of material that I'd totally forgotten I'd included. It had been a few years.
As I re-read those early "X-Factor" comics, I realized that, beginning with Paul Smith's issues, I had been setting up a major storyline. Circumstances had intervened, but the set-up was clearly present. I began to get excited. Maybe I could do that story after all - but with a slightly different twist. So I told Mark that yes, if he liked the story I proposed, I would love to write "X-Factor: Forever."

It's been about 18 years since you last wrote "X-Factor." What's it like coming back to these characters after so many years? What makes them still compelling to you after all this time?

I know the characters, at least as they were when I left them. I understand who they are - what they value, what motivates them. I know what they want. I get them.
Writing them again is a lot of fun - like visiting with old friends. These characters are "retro," in that they're heroic. Sure they're tortured and flawed, but they try to use the powers they've been given to protect the weak and make the world a better place. Even though, sometimes, it's hard to know what's right and what's wrong in an imperfect world.
They're also publicly known, living openly as mutants for all to see. Their celebrity - or notoriety - is a constant backdrop to their lives. Non-mutant New Yorkers may see them as super-powered superstars, but, despite who they are and what they can do, their concerns aren't that different from our own.
There's a saying of Japanese origin I love - "The peg that sticks up gets hammered." Well, that's X-Factor for you, living openly as mutants in a monolithic ship in lower Manhattan. And it's my job - the writer's job - to hammer them.
So the events that surround them - and the situations they encounter - are always dramatic. And in this miniseries, in particular, they are cosmic!

"X-Factor: Forever" will pick up immediately after the events of 1991's "X-Factor" #64. For those of us who may need our memory refreshed and those of us who haven't had a chance to read those issues, how does the world of "X-Factor: Forever" differ from the present day Marvel Universe? What was going on back then?

That world is different from present day Marvel in a lot of ways, since what's happened in present day continuity doesn't exist for these characters in this timeline. The original X-Men are still together, though all have been transformed by events in their continuity. Those events shook them, but, now, all are beginning to get their acts together.
Jean remains troubled by memories that aren't hers and the occasional manifestation of Phoenix or Goblin Queen personas . The infant Christopher hasn't been infected by the transmode virus by Apocalypse or carried off into the future. Cable isn't Christopher, returned. The Phalanx story and the "Age of Apocalypse" don't exist. The future, beyond "X-Factor" #64, hasn't happened. It's a blank slate.

What can you tell us about the group dynamic and status quo when thew new mini-series begins?

Returning from a space adventure involving the Celestials, X-Factor's Ship - originally a Celestial information gathering artifact appropriated by the immortal villain Apocalypse - has landed upright, a towering monolith on the site of the destroyed X-Factor building in lower Manhattan, overlooking the Hudson River. Ship has begun to experience a few minor malfunctions.
X-Factor continue, for good or ill, as publically known mutants. They have offered the press photo-ops in exchange for a modicum of privacy. Even though they live in New York, they can't make an outside move without someone snapping their picture.
Scott/Cyclops has a baby son, Christopher, by his dead wife Madelyne Pryor - who became the Goblin Queen. For those who don't remember, Maddy was a clone of Jean Gray, created by the villain Mr. Sinister. She died during "Inferno."
Most mutants don't begin to manifest powers until adolescence, but the infant, Christopher, can already project a protective force field - a variation on Jean's telekinetic shield power. When Jean and the baby use their powers at the same time, because of their relationship, their powers repel each other.
Scott has asked Jean to marry him, but Jean has refused since she's having trouble integrating the confusing and terrible memories left her by the out-of-control Phoenix entity - a being that once impersonated her and became a destroyer of planets - and the Goblin Queen, who tried to sacrifice her own son. Though Jean is no longer telepathic, she's beginning to have low-level telepathic flashes. Because this seems linked to the Phoenix persona, she's not quite sure how to react. Jean is also troubled because both of her "clones" became evil. She fears that this happened because the original is badly flawed. Despite the baby's origin, Jean loves little Christopher, who is the son of her genes, if not the child of her body.
Warren/Archangel, no longer the sunny Angel, has begun to accept his own transformation by Apocalypse into a blue-skinned living weapon. He has begun to master his dark emotions and exert control over his lethal wings.
The super-intelligent Hank/ Beast is blue and furry, agile, and stronger than ever. He misses being able to pass as human, is tired of being stared at because of his physical differentness, and hides his discomfort behind a joking exterior.
Bobby/Iceman's powers have increased to the point where, without his power damper belt, his ability could go dangerously out of control. In the past, he'd seen himself as second rate, but, as he matures, he's beginning to accept his own strength.
The villain Apocalypse continues to monitor the activities of X-Factor and Ship, as well as the other mutants on Earth.
Apocalypse's Hellhound, the transformed Caliban, has been stalking the Marauders who murdered his people, the Morlocks. Sabretooth is Caliban's final target. But Sabretooth wants nothing more than to finish off Archangel.

What can you tell us about the plot of "X-Factor: Forever?"

The Celestials have begun to keep a sharp eye on evolving humankind. Apocalypse believes he knows why, and that mutantkind has a desperate and pervasive problem that puts humanity, itself, at risk of extinction. The arrival of a Celestial poses a deadly threat, and X-Factor and Apocalypse - deadly enemies - must join forces to prove humanity's worthiness before the colossus can use his vast power to destroy the Earth.

You and Jackson Guice co-created Apocalypse in "X-Factor" #6. What is it like coming back and writing the character again, now that he's become such an important part of the X-Men mythos?

It's really fun to write Apocalypse again. Especially since Apocalypse's own agenda - to create stressors that will drive humanity to evolve quickly and reach the next level - homo superior - may be the very thing that will doom it to extinction. (Oops! Poor Apocalypse. It seemed like a good idea at the time.)

What can you tell me about the supporting cast of "X-Factor: Forever?"

The mutant kids - Rusty, Skids, Rictor, Artie, Leach, and Boom-Boom - whom X-Factor rescued, are off at several different schools, now, so they're out of the story.
Iceman, Beast, and Archangel are involved in relationships.
Iceman is dating Opal Tanaka, whom he just rescued from the clutches of her Japanese gangster grandfather.
Beast has a sometimes-volatile relationship with the reporter, Trish Tilby, who is about to return from assignment in India.
Archangel has a burgeoning friendship with the police officer Charlotte Jones and her eight-year-old son Timmy.
The people who make up New York City are so diverse, with so much attitude, that the city itself becomes a supporting character. No city on Earth has a larger personality.

What's it like working with Dan Panosian? What do you feel he brings to the book as an artist?

So far, I've seen fantastic character drawings, great designs for new costume, a really cool cover, and a very neat first page. Can't wait for the double-page splash to follow! I can already tell this story is going to write like a dream.
Dan is the kind of artist whose work I most admire. He's intelligent and intuitive. He draws beautifully. He cartoons magnificently. His paintings are terrific. His characters have gesture and attitude. They're not generic. They act! Dan also creates real and lively environments. He thinks about what the story needs and how best to tell it. His work has a modern vibe.
We're doing "X-Factor: Forever" Marvel-style, so Dan is drawing from a plot which I then script. This should give him considerable latitude in storytelling and page layouts, which, in turn, should showcase his considerable abilities. The art is going to be fantastic!

In "X-Men: Forever" Chris Claremont has enjoyed the freedom to take the series in a number of unexpected and surprising directions, like killing off Wolverine. Are you enjoying similar creative freedom with "X-Factor: Forever?"

Yep. It's one of the things that drew me to the project. Doing a story that creates an alternate timeline has huge advantages. It takes place in it's own universe, so, given the editor's approval. I can do anything I want. Nobody will be mandating crossovers or telling me I can't use characters because they're off in space. I don't have to worry about messing up somebody else's continuity. It provides for a great deal of creative freedom. This is something I hope to take full advantage of.
I know I'm going to hear the question, "Is this really, exactly, what you would have done if you'd continued with "X-Factor" eighteen years ago?" The answer is…of course not. Or not exactly. There have been a lot of stories involving these characters in the last eighteen years, and I'd want to avoid re-telling any of them.
Also, since I have the freedom of my own timeline here, I don't have to be concerned for anybody's continuity but my own. That's always a consideration when you're playing in a communal sandbox. You don't want to break someone else's toys.
That said, elements of what I'm doing in "X-Factor: Forever" would definitely have appeared in [what would have been] future "X-Factor" continuity. But now the repercussions will be bigger and more dramatic. Putting them in this fresh, no-holds-barred context is, for me, part of the fun.


Será uma mini em cinco edições. O artista será Dan Panosian.

Começa do ponto em que X-Factor 64 acabou – última edição de Simonson no título. Ela quis aceitar logo que a idéia lhe foi proposta, mas ela achou melhor ler todo seu run primeiramente para depois decidir fazer. Depois de todo esse tempo, tinha muita coisa que ela não lembrava de ter escrito. Mas recordou de um plot maior, que começou com as edições em que Paul Smith desenhou. Esse plot teve seu curso mudado por algumas circunstâncias, mas agora ela poderá recuperá-lo.

O seu reencontro com os personagens é algo mais fácil, já que ela os conhece bem e escrevê-los-á a partir do instante em que o deixou há 18 anos.

Naquela época, os X-Men originais formavam o X-Factor. Jean tinha problemas com ocasionais manifestações das personas de Fênix e da Rainha dos Duendes. O bebê Christopher não foi infectado pelo vírus transmodal e levado ao futuro. Cable não é o Christopher que voltou do futuro.

A mini será cósmica. O X-Factor vai ter acabado de voltar da aventura com os Celestiais, que agora estão de olho na humanidade. O Apocalipse acha que sabe por quê e que os mutantes têm um problema que pode levar a humanidade toda à extinção. Os Celestiais virão à Terra e o X-Factor precisará unir forças com seu principal inimigo, Apocalipse, para evitar que a Terra seja destruída.

As crianças mutantes resgatadas anteriormente pelo X-Factor – Rusty, Skids, Boom Boom, Artie e Sanguessuga – não aparecerão, pois foram mandados para o colégio. Homem-de-Gelo, Fera e Arcanjo terão seus pares românticos – Opal, Trish Tilby e Charlotte Jones.

Louise terá a mesma liberdade criativa de Claremont em X-Men:Forever e ela quer aprofundar suas ideiais nessa chance de reescrever o universo do X-Factor. Ela afirma que, com certeza, ela não teria feito o que está escrevendo agora há dezoito anos. Esses personagens passaram por muita coisa nesse tempo e ela vai evitar que muitas ideias sejam recontadas agora.

http://comics.ign.com/articles/105/1055811p1.html

Valeu, Dan.

Resumindo:

A importância de Nation X, que serve para retratar a vida de todos os X-Men em Utopia, é amplificada pela vinda de Magneto, seu relacionamento com Scott e o que o futuro reserva para ambos.

Magneto sempre foi uma figura complicada e cada habitante da ilha vai reagir de um jeito com sua presença. Ele não aparecia já tinha algum tempo (edição 500) e agora que voltou, ajoelhou-se à frente de Scott. Até agora não sabemos o porquê de seu retorno, mas, ao final do arco, ele fará algo grandioso, que responderá a todas as dúvidas e terá ramificações para a revista e muitos de seus personagens.

Scott aparenta aceitar bem mais facilmente a promessa de Magneto de que não está ali para confrontá-los, mas para ter abrigo, justamente porque não quer ter de encará-lo agora. Ele quer dar a todos o benefício da dúvida – não confia em Magneto, mas tê-lo ao seu lado não é algo ruim. Contudo, no decorrer do arco, vamos ver que a hostilidade de Scott vai aparecer. Quando Magneto colocar suas “asas” de fora, a tensão entre ambos ficará clara.

Muita gente ficou intrigada com a aparente fraqueza do Mestre do Magnetismo na luta contra o Predador X, já que, edições antes, quando chegou à Utopia, ele se autoproclamou como um homem de 20 anos novamente. Fraction, fugidio, responde utilizando a analogia de um resfriado – você estava doente, aí você se recupera e acha que está excelente, mas acaba extrapolando. Magneto não é mais como foi um dia, mas continua excessivamente autoconfiante. Ele pode ter ganhado seus poderes de volta e se sentir como novo, mas não é um jovem.

Perguntado sobre por que o Alto Evolucionário não pôde reconstruir sua máquina e refazer os processos que estava pondo em prática com Magneto, Fraction disse que ele poderia, mas na própria revista foi visto que ele quase matou Magnus durante a experiência. Logo, o processo não era nada prático, a menos que seja aplicado a pessoas tão ou mais fortes que Magneto. Magnus recuperou seu poder, mas o processo não era algo factível e nem facilmente replicável para o restante da raça mutante.

A volta de Magneto teve um maior impacto para outro habitante da ilha: Xavier, que acabou por insultá-lo e por se postar de “cabeça quente”, uma característica que outrora fora do próprio Mestre do Magnetismo. Fraction não acha que a paranoia de Xavier está errada, assim como não condena o comportamento mais liberal de Scott – algo que vai se azedar nas próximas duas edições. Scott deu corda para Magneto e agora ele vai se aproveitar disso.

Resumindo:

A edição que sai em março, tem roteiro de Marjorie Liu e arte de Alina Ursov, fazendo parte dos comemorativos do "Women of Marvel". Laura está de voltas às ruas de NYC, assim como estreou nas HQS em NYX.

Diferentemente do filho de Wolverine, Daken, Laura teve em Logan o primeiro modelo de ser humano no qual pôde se espelhar. Daken não teve a mesma sorte e se tornou um assassino sem piedade. Mas Marjorie realmente não sabe o que os torna tão diferentes - se é a vida dela junto aos X-Men que lhe dá compaixão, ou se isso já vem antes, como visto com Kiden em NYX. Pode ser uma simples questão de diferença de personalidade entre ela e ele. Cada um acabou se desenvolvendo de forma diferente após os traumas e as lavagens cerebrais pelos quais passaram.

Apesar de ser muito poderosa e perigosa, Laura ainda é uma garota, uma menina que foi lançada ao inferno, criada em laboratório e que hoje é usada como uma máquina mortífera pelos X-Men. Ela passou a vida toda sendo usada. Portando, ela não tem uma personalidade fixa. X-23 tem um longo caminho para trilhar até firmar sua personalidade.

Durante o one-shot, teremos uma Laura inicialmente mais introspectiva e fisicamente bem. O enredo tem a ver com ter poder e não o ter. As limitações onde nos colocamos sem perceber, o que é necessário para permanecemos de pé quando alguém nos machuca, não fisicamente, mas mentalmente. Amizade, amor, esperança: tudo isso será abordado no especial.

O plot é simples: Laura e Logan vão para Nova Iorque ajudar Jubileu, e Laura fareja o rastro de Kiden. Ela o segue, encontra, mas outra pessoa também a acha. Alguém muito poderoso, que quer controlar sua vida. Alguém que, infelizmente, é muito familiar para ela.

X-23 encontrará pela primeira vez Kiden e suas outras companheiras de NYX. Quando elas se encontraram antes, Laura estava muito perdida, sendo usada. A amizade de Kiden foi a responsável por devolvê-la de volta à vida. A grande diferença de Kiden e das outras foi que ela nunca pediram nada em troca, a não ajuda mútua. Foi algo que Laura jamais tinha encontrado em lugar algum: uma amizade verdadeira. Por isso que será muito impactante para X-23 encontrá-las de novo, o que fará com que ela repense os rumos que sua vida tomou.

O grande inimigo de Laura nessa jornada será ela mesma. Para a garota é muito mais difícil e o primeiro passo é se transformar no seu próprio eu e não se arriscar a perder sua própria identidade.

Matt Fraction falando sobre Nation X:

Spoiler:


The Marvel Universe is meant to mirror our own, but on a much larger scale. As such, there are many nations in the Marvel Universe that simply don't exist in our world, like Wakanda, Latveria, and Symkaria, to name just a few. Recently, a new new nation was added to that list. Its residents, the many mutants who compose the ranks of the different X-Men teams, call it Utopia. Floating in San Francisco Bay, it is a man-made island built out of the remains of Magneto's one-time headquarters. In the current "Nation X" storyline in "Uncanny X-Men," the title characters are discovering that bringing Utopia up from the bottom of San Francisco Bay was, in fact, the easiest thing about establishing their new home.

Now, they have to make the island into a viable and liveable community while enduring an assault by a mysterious and deadly new group of enemies. The second half of "Nation X" begins this week with the release of "Uncanny X-Men" #519 by writer Matt Fraction and artist Terry Dodson. CBR News spoke with Fraction about both "Nation X" and "Second Coming", the next major X-Men storyline.

The X-Men established Utopia as a separate nation in the climax of the recent "Utopia" crossover between "Dark Avengers" and "Uncanny X-Men." In order to do so, the residents of the island had to defend their new home against an invasion by Norman Osborn and his Dark Avengers. The X-Men warded off the invasion, but not without paying a price. A sliver of The Void, the malevolent psychic entity that lives inside the Avenger known as the Sentry, wormed it's way into Emma Frost's mind. To cut off it's influence, Emma transformed into her diamond form. However, this had the side effect of cutting her off from her telepathic powers as well.

Losing Emma's telepathic abilities is costly, but the X-Men have other mind readers; Frost's three teenage proteges known as the Stepford Cuckoos. cyclops and his team were able to rely on them until the events of "Uncanny X-Men" #517 when the psychic Phoenix Force departed the Cuckoos, an event that left them comatose. "We've been seeing this happen to all the characters with fragments of the Phoenix force," Fraction told CBR News. "'Second Coming' is on its way, and with it something big. Something that answers questions like, 'Why did the Phoenix appear to Emma in her psychic dream?' Something is happening to the Phoenix. It's as if it were rising from the ashes."

The downing of the Stepford Cuckoos left the X-Men without any major telepathic members, so in "Uncanny X-Men" #518, Cyclops engaged in a desperate and risky maneuver to restore Emma Frost's telepathic abilities. He entered her mind and tried to exorcise the Void from within. In doing so, Scott Summers played right into the sinister entity's hands, because the Void left Emma's mind and took up residence in his. "Scott is the leader of the X-Men, and to The Void that's of more value. The Void wanted Scott all along because of the way his mind works; because of his ferociousness and his strategic thinking," Fraction explained. "The Void had been cooped up in the mind of that schizophrenic dumb-ass Rob Reynolds AKA The Sentry, who just cried and moaned, and here's a guy who is capable of taking on the world with the right army. So that's why the Void abandoned Emma for Scott. He saw a guy who could take over the world for him."

Cyclops hasn't been the only original X-Men member having problems during "Nation X." Henry McCoy AKA The Beast has become increasingly uncomfortable with the type of organization the X-Men have become. "He was tortured during 'Utopia,' and now he's watched his friends become militarized in the move to this island. I don't think he recognizes who they are right now," Fraction remarked. "He sees Scott making all these militaristic moves. Scott really is a general now, and Hank is a scientist. He philosophically disagrees with the kind of war footing the X-Men are standing on."

Another thing the Beast finds unsettling about the X-Men is that their former arch enemy, Magneto, has joined their ranks, and the former head of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants now appears to be sincere in his devotion to the X-Men's cause. "Scott was able to do what Magneto was never capable of, and that's bring everybody together," Fraction said. "He is not an easy person to have in your life, though. You start to see that next issue. Plus, there's also the question of, now that Magneto appears to have joined the X-Men's cause, how much initiative do you really want him to show?"

Magneto joined the X-Men just in time to be injured in an attack on Utopia by several Predator X's. There were a number of reasons why Fraction wanted to use the bio-engineered monsters in the story. "At it's rawest level, I love the idea of a monster that eats mutants [Laughs]. They're like weapons. They're mutant seeking missiles in the form of monsters. So they're kind of fascinating." Fraction remarked. "I also wanted to show how much the X-Men have grown since their last confrontation with a Predator X during 'Messiah CompleX.' Their tactics are stronger. They've trained and were ready, so when the attack happened, it wasn't the end of the world. It was also a nice way to involve almost everybody in a scene; a sort of 50 character action sequence [Laughs]."

The Predator X attack on Utopia was orchestrated by a mysterious villain named Lobe and his equally enigmatic associates. "They're new characters, and they didn't send the Predators to just kill everyone on Utopia," Fraction revealed. "So who are they? What are they doing? How did they get access to cybernetically modified Predator X's? Why did they try to drop them on Utopia? Keep reading. The core mystery throughout 'Nation X' is who these dudes are. I was interested in putting together a team of people that we hadn't seen before and weren't just mutants who wanted to kill the X-Men."

In the second half of "Nation X" Fraction will continue to develop the overall theme of the story: unification. "'Nation X' is a story about people coming together and what that means as a society; what does it mean to build a town? There are real life questions that have to be answered, like, what do the X-Men do with a dead body now that they live on an island? We also see what it means to come together as a family, a team, a culture, a people and a general and his army," Fraction stated. "This is a story about all of that, and some of these pieces aren't all going to fit. 'Nation X' is about the entire X-verse as I understand it, coming together in this place and time as one.
"In the second half of the story, we'll see people try to break that apart, but as 'Nation X' continues, we're going to see the ultimate event that brings everybody together regardless of what team they're on or what their responsibility is," Fraction continued. "This storyline is building towards an event that brings everybody together. Issue #522 is huge and should not be missed. From there we launch right into 'Second Coming.'"

The pace of the second half of 'Nation X' will be both fast and relentless. The story finds the X-Men struggling to stay above water as they're battered by wave after wave of obstacles and enemies. "Staying afloat is a literal and symbolic phrase indeed," Fraction hinted. "They're trying to keep their home afloat as well as figuratively stay afloat thanks to all the dangers they're facing."

The X-Men won't be facing these dangers alone. The second half of "Nation X" finds them allied with Fantomex, a character that both Fraction and "Wolverine: Weapon X" writer Jason Aaron love. "We've united forces, since we're the only two guys at Marvel who like Fantomex. If there are other people who like him, they're closeted and they need to come out and join us. Jason and I are united in our belief that Fantomex is an amazing character, and we went to make him even more amazing," Fraction said. "So Jason brought him back in his 'Dark Reign:The List' special, and now I'm going to play with him a little bit in this storyline. We're going to do everything we can to make the rest of the world fall as passionately in love with Fantomex as we are.

"And what isn't there to like about him?" Fraction continued. "He's an impeccably dressed, fake French art thief, with a spaceship in his mouth [laughs]. He's just this big burst of science fiction weirdness, and I love him."

Fantomex isn't the only character Fraction is hoping to provide with more screen time in upcoming issues of "Uncanny X-Men." "One of the most difficult things about writing this book is getting everybody to this place. The long range plan to get everybody here had some prime movers at the heart of it, while other characters have kind of receded, come forward, and gone back. Northstar has been one of those characters. He's shown up for action sequences but hasn't had much stage time because of the nature of the story," Fraction explained. "Coming out of 'Second Coming,' there's an opportunity for more. Things rotate around and you'll get more time for Northstar and some other characters. Plus, I think after 'Second Coming' our focus is going to narrow a little bit in terms of who our primary characters are."

"Second Coming" is the final chapter of a trilogy of X-Men event stories that began with the 2007 event story "Messiah CompleX" and continued with this year's "Messiah War." It doesn't begin until Spring 2010, but Fraction can't wait for fans to read the story. "It's an exciting time time to be into X-Men, because you're getting giant pay off after giant pay off," Fraction stated. "This is really what every X-book has been building to since 'Messiah CompleX.'"

"Second Coming" isn't the only event that will rock the Marvel Universe in 2010. January sees the beginning of "Siege," a big story that runs through the Avengers family of titles, but it's events will lead into what happens in "Second Coming." "We're going to be rolling out 'Second Coming' towards the end of 'Siege.' So they do inform and flavor each other, but they don't necessarily tie into one another," Fraction said. "That said, stay tuned for "Uncanny" #526 which features a super awesome guest star that I don't believe we've seen in 'Uncanny X-Men' in a fairly long time."



O Universo Marvel é cheio de países e localidades que não existem em nosso mundo real, como Wakanda e Latveria. Recentemente, uma outra nação se formou: Utopia, que é uma ilha – na verdade, um antigo QG de Magneto, o Asteróide M - flutuando sobre a Baía de São Francisco, cujos residentes são mutantes.

Desde o início, a vida não foi fácil: durante o cross com os Dark Avengers, os mutantes tiveram de se proteger da invasão de Osborn e seus colegas de equipe. Depois de terem transformado o asteróide em um local habitável, agora os X-Men estão sofrendo a investida de um novo grupo de inimigos.

Além disso, ao se defender do ataque dos Dark Avengers, os X-Men pagaram um alto preço: o Vácuo, entidade psíquica que vive na cabeça do Sentinela, conseguiu adentrar a mente de Emma Frots, o que a faz mudar de forma para o diamante e impedir que o Vácuo controle sua telepatia.

As Cuckoos, também telepatas, foram abandonadas pela Força Fênix recentemente e caíram desacordas. Fraction alerta para que continuemos a acompanhar o que está acontecendo com a Força Fênix, que também já havia deixado Rachel Summers. “Second Coming” está para começar e a Fênix está envolvida, como se estivesse se reerguendo das cinzas.

Com esse desfalque de telepatas, Ciclope tentou restaurar as habilidades de Emma, entrando na cabeça dela para exorcizar o Vácuo. O que ele não esperava era que o Vácuo entrasse na sua própria mente. A entidade psíquica sempre quis Scott para poder ter controle de uma importante mente estrategista – alguém que poderia conquistar o mundo.

Outro membro original dos X-Men, Fera, está tendo problemas durante o arco. Hank está desconfortável com os rumos pelos quais o grupo está seguindo. Ele foi torturado em Utopia e agora vê que os X-Men estão se militarizando, graças a Scott, que se posta com um verdadeiro general, enquanto Hank é um cientista. Fera também não gostou nada da união de Magneto ao grupo e, como veremos nas próximas edições, ela ainda trará problemas aos habitantes da ilha.

A vinda de Magneto coincidiu com uma invasão de Predadores X. Fraction adora a idéia de poder trabalhar com monstros que se alimentam de mutantes. Ele aproveitou para explorar como os X-Men melhoraram taticamente desde o último encontro com um Predador X, em Complexo de Messias. Além disso, ele pôde usar diversos mutantes no confronto.
O ataque dos predadores foi obra de um vilão chamado Lobe. Ele e seu grupo são novos personagens, que desejam muito mais do que simplesmente mandar os Predadores para Utopia, a fim de caçar mutantes. Seus objetivos serão revelados nas próximas edições de Nation X.

Outro plot que continuará a ser trabalhado será a unificação, a vida em comunidade dos mutantes na construção dessa cidade. No desenrolar, veremos diversos personagens querendo quebrar a harmonia necessária para uma vida comum, mas os eventos que estão pela frente farão com que todos tenham que agir como um time - Fraction destacou a edição 522 como o centro de todo o arco, que acabará por desembocar em Second Coming.

Fraction também falou de mais novidades do arco: Fantomex, aliado na era Morrison e um dos personagens favoritos do autor (e também de Jason Aaron, que o trouxe de volta no especial Dark Reign: The List – Wolverine), aparecerá para ajudar os X-Men. Outros personagens também ganharão mais destaque, como Estrela Polar. Depois de Second Coming, a revista passará a focar em alguns personagens principais.

O evento encerra a trilogia iniciada em 2007, com Complexo de Messias, e começa em março, coroando tudo o que foi escrito na franquia mutante nos últimos três anos. Outra saga importante é Siege, que promete balançar todo o Universo Marvel em 2010. Ambas as sagas trarão conseqüências mútuas, embora não haja nenhum tie-in de uma em outra.

O último recado de Fraction é para esperarmos por Uncanny X-Men #526, quando teremos a aparição de um importante personagem convidado, que não aparecia em X-Men há anos.

X-Position com Duane Swierczynski (eu ainda aprendo o nome dele sem colar):

Spoiler:


Mauro Di Cosmo kicks things off for the day with a few queries about his favorite old codger…
1) Does the X-office have any plans to celebrate Cable's 20th Anniversary next year?


Wow, twenty years already and he doesn't seem a day over…uh, 63. Rest assured, the X-office has something special in mind for Cable next year. And not just an X-Jazzy tricked out with Gatling guns…

2) Will you still be writing for the X-office after "X-Men: Second Coming?"

There is an X-related miniseries in the works that I can't talk about just yet…otherwise, stay tuned.

3) I realize that not much can be said about "Second Coming," but will Cable fans be happy or depressed after the event? Will he still be around in a monthly?

Like you said, Mauro, not much can be said about "Second Coming" without ruining things. But Cable fans should know that he's absolutely central to the crossover. And for people who aren't reading "Cable" on a regular basis, you should definitely hop onto the new "Homecoming" arc (starting with the recent over-sized "Cable" #21). It's essential for what's to come.

4) Will Cable and Deadpool ever reunite in the present?

They're going to reunite sooner than you think. Check the April previews soon for a hint of the Cable and Deadpool reunion to end all Cable and Deadpool reunions.

Philip A Moore wants to know more about your plans – past and present:
1) Did you have an exact number of issues planned before "X-Men: Second Coming?" Did you get to tell all the stories you wanted to tell?


When I first started planning "Cable" with Axel Alonso and the rest of the X-office back in the summer of 2007, I had an exact number of issues in mind: 24 - roughly two years' worth of story. And I plotted it the same way I plot my novels: there was an opening situation (mutant soldier and cute baby, on the run through time), complicating factors (Bishop, who would stop at nothing to kill the baby), and finally, an end point in mind (the baby's safe return to the present).
I knew I wanted to tell certain kinds of stories along the way – for example, I'd been dying to tell the Cable and Hope separated-in-time story (what became "Cable" #15 and 16) since the very beginning. But I focused on one arc a time, trying to make sure each one was new-reader-accessible.
Did I tell every story I wanted? No – but then again, you never do.

2) One of my favorite books written by you was "Werewolf By Night" Max. I'd like to know is there a chance for a sequel (or maybe an ongoing)? You left the book with a nasty cliff hanger…

Thanks Philip – very glad you enjoyed it. I'd love to write a sequel, but nothing's planned at the moment. However, at the risk of shameless self-promotion, there is a sort of weird Werewolf by Night cameo in my next crime novel, "Expiration Date," which is out next April.

No risk here, Duane, just lots of holiday love! As a matter of fact, BH wants to shower you with some of that right now…
"Messiah War" was a crossover that seemed to divide a lot of readers, but as a Stryfe fan I was nothing but ecstatic at the character's handling by you and your co-writers. I have two questions about Stryfe for you:
1) A dozen years is a lot of time to spend with someone. Are they any plans to expand on what exactly happened between Bishop and Stryfe during this time period?


You know, that would be a great launching point for a miniseries – kind of a post-apocalyptic buddy comedy: "Life With Stryfe."

2) Any comment on the future of Stryfe? Like the rumor that Cable is possibly going to transfer his psyche over to Stryfe's T-O virus-clean and youthful body?
Who's spreading this rumor about Stryfe's "youthful body?" I do not think Lord Stryfe would like you talking about him in this way.

Taimur Dar was curious about another "youthful body" running around the Marvel Mutant U at the moment. Any comment on this particular X-Man?
1) With Nate Grey/X-Man returning to the Marvel Universe, are there any plans for a "family reunion" with Cable?


A Cable family reunion would quite possibly be the most dysfunctional family reunion ever. How do you even begin to do the seating chart? Do the clones get their own table?
Seriously, though – keep your eyes on "Second Coming."

2) In a non-X related question, now that "Immortal Weapons" has concluded, are there any new Iron Fist projects on the horizon for you that fans should watch out for?

Nothing on the horizon – but I had an absolute blast with Iron Fist for the year and a half I was on board. I'd return to Danny's world in a heartbeat. Hell, I'd love to tell a year's worth of Orson Randall stories.

Joshua Hetherington feels as though Hope and Cable could use some friends to hang around with in the present. Are you able to oblige?
1) With Cable's return to the present, will we be seeing a more "permanent" roster of supporting characters featured hanging around with Hope and Cable? Maybe Domino? Cannonball? Boom Boom?


That's something that will be revealed in "Second Coming," so I can't say anything at the moment.

2) Will Nathan and Hope live on Utopia with the X-Men, or independently?

Hope told Cable she wants to join the X-Men in the present, so that's the goal. But making it to Utopia is another story.

3) Any more interactions between Cable and X-Force planned? I loved their interaction during "Messiah War," and it seems like Hope wants to join X-Force more than she wants to join X-Men…

If you're reading the current arc, "Homecoming," you'll see that Hope really just wants some semblance of a "normal" life. She's heard all of these things about who she's supposed to be, she had a very fleeting encounter with X-Force…and now that she's a little older, she realizes she's tired of eating fried rat on a dying Earth.
Like most teenagers, she's struggling with the questions of "Who am I?" and "What am I supposed to be doing?" So it's not specifically X-Force she longs to join (though I suspect she digs their costumes and ethos), but the X-Men, who she thinks will help her answer those questions.

4) Any clue what Hope's powers are? I'm guessing probably telekinesis and telepathy like Stryfe assumed, but that doesn't really explain how she healed Rogue in "Messiah CompleX" – unless a certain fiery bird is involved. Am I getting warm?

You saw a glimmer of Hope's power in "Cable" #21. She stopped a bullet cold. She dished back what Bishop served. But is that telekinesis…or something else entirely?

Maybe Hope's power lies in her hair…at least, that's what Maroutz is thinking:
I've really enjoyed "Cable," but the whole "is Hope actually Jean Grey" debate frustrates the hell outta me. If she's not supposed to look like Jean, then the artists are falling down on the job. If she is supposed to look like her, then why all the secrecy and denials when it all appears obvious to readers? Even her powers now seem to mimic Jean's. Please tell me all will be revealed in "X-Men: Second Coming," or I'm gonna get feistier than a feisty redhead…


I'm married to a feisty redhead, so I know firsthand how feisty redheads can get, and sometimes, that's an unbearable level of feistiness. (Say that three times fast.) But you'll learn more in "Second Coming." I mean, the title alone kind of tips you off, if you think about it…

While the readers ponder that nugget of knowledge, it's now my turn to ask this week's "get-to-know-you" question. Ready to go "Behind the X?"
My wife and I were trying to think of some holiday cocktails to make for a party, but all we could come up with is hot buttered rum. Do you have any holiday cocktails you enjoy? Care to share the recipe?


My cocktail of choice at the holidays is a big tumbler of good scotch with ice. You adjust the scotch-to-ice ratio by the number of relatives who show up.
But for a proper holiday-ish cocktail, I make these chocolate-peppermint martini things for my wife – it's basically Stirrings Chocolate Peppermintini mixer shaken with vodka – again, the amount of vodka is proportional to the number of relatives at hand. Add some chocolate rimmer to the glass (wow, never though I'd type those words in a "Cable" interview) and pour.

Em 2010, o personagem Cable faz 20 anos e a Marvel guarda muitas surpresas para ele, mas que, assim como os mistérios que envolvem a participação de Cable e do próprio escritor Duane Scierzynski em Second Coming (e no que vem depois), permanecem escondidas dos leitores.

O autor adiantou apenas que Cable é central nesse crossover e para aqueles que não acompanham a série do personagem, é essencial que leiam o arco Homecoming para entender o que está por vir.

Pelo menos, ficamos sabendo que Cable continuará aparecendo em abril. Ele e Deadpool se encontrarão nesse mês, em um encontro que promete ser o último da dupla.
Mas a série mensal realmente deve chegar ao fim, pelo menos pelas mãos de Duane, já que, desde 2007, ele havia planejado escrever apenas 24 edições no título, nas quais não pôde escrever tudo o que gostaria – mas ninguém consegue.

Uma de suas principais ambições desde o início foi contar histórias separadas de Hope e Cable, o que aconteceu em certos momentos de Messiah War e depois. Quanto a essa saga, Duane desmentiu os boatos de que Cable possivelmente vai transferir sua psique para o corpo sadio e jovem de Conflyto.

O autor também falou da possibilidade de Cable se encontrar com Nate Grey, que agora está de volta ao Universo Marvel: fiquemos atentos a Second Coming, porque isso pode acontecer. Encontros com Dominó, Míssil ou Dinamite/Fusão também dependem do que acontecerá no cross.

A messias quer se juntar aos X-Men, mas, se Cable e Hope poderão viver em Utopia com eles, isso é outra história. Ela espera que os X-Men possam ajudá-la a explicar quem ela realmente é e lidar com todas suas dúvidas.

Sobre os poderes da garota, tivemos uma idéia ao ler Cable #21, podendo parar uma bala. Seria telecinese ou algo totalmente diferente? A própria relação dela com a Jean, se houver, será explicada no cross.

Resumindo: nada dito e tudo acontece em Second Coming.

Re: X-Position

Mensagem  leonardobento em Seg Dez 28 2009, 21:03

Way falando de Wolverine:Origins:

Spoiler:


Marvel Comics' Wolverine is also known to his fans as as Weapon X, and for most of his life he's been just that; a weapon to be used and exploited. When the X-Men's founder Professor Charles Xavier first encountered Wolverine, Xavier used his telepathic powers to wipe away the violent mutant's memories with the hope of giving Wolverine the chance to be something better; a hero. And for a time, that's exactly what Wolverine was,, until the aftermath of the 2005 event story, "House of M," when he regained all his missing memories. This was a painful process that made Wolverine realize that if he was ever going to be truly free, he would have to take down the men who enslaved him and turned him into their instrument of destruction.

"Wolverine's ongoing quest to do just that has been documented for nearly four years in the pages of "Wolverine: Origins." It's been a perilous journey that has forced the character to confront some of the uglier aspects of his past while placing him in conflict with Daken, the son he never knew he had. Eventually, Wolverine discovered that the men who enslaved him did so at the behest of a powerful, Machiavellian and enigmatic mutant known as Romulus. In "7 the Hard Way," the current and penultimate arc of "Wolverine: Origins," the former Weapon X is devising a desperate plan to rid the world of Romulus' influence forever. CBR News spoke with writer Daniel Way about this storyline as well as "Reckoning," the series' final arc, which kicks off in March 2010.

Wolverine's quest to bring down Romulus started out as a simple mission of revenge with the simple goal of killing the centuries-old master manipulator. He recently discovered, however, that doing so would be giving Romulus exactly what he wants.

"Romulus' greatest strength is that no one knows about Romulus. He's the keystone that holds his empire together, and what he wants is someone to take his place; someone to resume his work after he's gone. He wants an heir. So he's been manipulating Wolverine and others like Daken; pitting them against each other so that he does retain some control from beyond the grave," Way told CBR News "That's something which is still a long way off. This is an empire that's been centuries in the building. Romulus doesn't necessarily think in short term segments."

Killing Romulus would also force Wolverine into a bloody confrontation with Daken, who genuinely covets Romulus' crown, so Wolverine has been forced to try utilize different tactics in order to break free from his former master's master plan. In "7 the Hard Way," he began doing just that, with one tactic being to attack the various organizations and institutions that make up Romulus' empire.

"This is a way of turning Romulus' plan against him. If Wolverine does fail and becomes Romulus' heir, this is a way of insuring that there is nothing left," Way explained. "That's the worst case scenario, though. The best case scenario is that he figures out a way to reconcile his past and resolve his future."

To achieve that "best case scenario," Wolverine has a plan that hinges on the help of several unlikely allies. In "Origins" #41, the first part of "7 the Hard Way," he set out to recruit the first of those allies: Bruce Banners and his son Skaar.

"Bruce Banner isn't the guy you'd think Wolverine would go to, and historically he wouldn't. They don't get along at all. That is part and parcel, though, of this whole plan that Wolverine is running; to operate in a non-Romulus way," Way remarked. "We've shown throughout 'Origins,' and it really came to a head in the recent 'Romulus' arc, that Wolverine has been operating exactly as Romulus assumed he would. It wasn't really an assumption, though, because Romulus taught him how to do this. The reason Wolverine acts the way he does is because this is the methodology that Romulus taught him. That's why it's very easy for Romulus to anticipate Wolverine's moves, because it's simply a question of 'What would I do?'"

At the beginning of "Origins" #42, Wolverine recruited one of the newest X-Men members, Cloak, to assist him in his plan. "Cloak has teleportation abilities, and so do several other X-Men, but Wolverine is on a vengeful mission. It's not something a lot of those characters would have the stomach for. It's a very calculated move on Wolverine's part to approach Cloak, but not [Cloak's] partner Dagger. Cloak has a very troubled background and a lot of unresolved issues. He maintains himself by his proximity to Dagger. It's a light and dark thing" Way said. "Cloak on his own is what Wolverine needs. Much like what Wolverine has done with X-Force. There's a lot of work that needs to be done, and he needs workers that are willing to get dirty. At one point, Cloak was roaming the streets of New York, pretty much executing drug dealers. That's not something you can easily put to rest."

The end of "Origins" #42 saw Wolverine attempt to recruit another unlikely ally, a character that Way has a particular affinity for, Wolverine's old foe, the Silver Samurai. "I like the fact that the Silver Samurai straddles that line. He's been both hero and villain. He has his own code of honor and ethics that he's formulated for himself. So he's almost beyond fault. It is what he truly believes," Way stated. "I don't like black and white characters, but I do like characters who walk a clear path, at least in their own mind.

"And I like the fact that even though the Silver Samurai didn't show up till much later in the publishing timeline, he's been linked back very deeply to Wolverine's early history. So he has knowledge of Wolverine and his situation," Way continued. "He's probably the most knowledgeable about Muramasa and the Muramasa Blade [A mystical weapon that inflicts wounds which can not be healed by healing factors like Wolverine's]. So that's really what Wolverine is after on that front."

"Origins" #43, the third chapter of "7 the Hard Way" in stores this now, continues Wolverine's interactions with Silver Samurai. On January 27, "Origins" #44 hits stores and will feature an appearance by the obscure villain known as Ruby Thursday. "Ruby Thursday is actually the key element to the whole plan. Everything is so leveraged in this plan that it's hard to talk about why she's involved in this story," Way explained. "It is a very un-Wolverine like plan, and she plays the most important part in that plan."

Way's scripts for "7 the Hard Way" are being brought to life by artist Doug Braithwaite. "When you work with an artist you haven't worked with before, you give them plenty of latitude with the art direction, and that's probably 80% of the script. Doug would come up with a lot of great poses, angles and staging," Way explained. "So it made me wonder how far he could go, and I started putting in more things. That would trigger more conversation, and now we're at a point where we bat things back and forth to see if we can one-up one another. So it's been great to work with a guy like Doug."

"7 the Hard Way" comes to a conclusion in February, then, in March, "Reckoning," the final arc of "Wolverine: Origins," begins. "This is the culmination of Wolverine's quest to once and for all rid himself of the spectre of Romulus, which has been shadowing him for essentially his whole life. It begins with a prologue in 'Origins' #46, which features Nightcrawler," Way said. "With elements like the Muramasa Blade involved, this could very well be Wolverine's final battle. There's no guarantee that anyone is going to make it out alive, and there is no guarantee for success. Wolverine is not so naive to assume that his plan is so good that Romulus can't overcome it, because he's got him every time with one exception, and that was in the previous arc.

"Wolverine had a chance to finish Romulus off, and the reason he didn't speaks towards where we're going in our final arc," Way continued. "It's because if Wolverine had killed Romulus in that scene, he would have been doing exactly, to the letter, what Romulus wanted. He would have stepped right into Romulus' shoes. So with 'Reckoning,' the question is, 'How can Wolverine finally end this but do it on his terms, so he can start living his life instead of being an extension of Romulus?' That's a pretty monumental challenge."

Making matters even more difficult is the fact that Wolverine's son Daken will be involved in his final showdown with Romulus. To that end, "Reckoning" is actually a crossover story between "Origins" and "Dark Wolverine," Daken's solo title which Way co-writes with Marjorie Liu. After the prologue issue in "Origins," the story moves to "Dark Wolverine" and will continue to move back and forth between the two titles until the arc's conclusion.

For the "Wolverine: Origins" issues of "Reckoning," Way is working with a new collaborator in artist Will Conrad. "His art is just incredible. I've seen his recent work on 'Black Panther,' and it was just insanely good," Way replied. "He has his own style, but his work does have kind of a Mike Deodato thing going on. At the same time, though, I can look at one of Deo's pages and one of Conrad's pages and you definitely see the differences. It's not a matter of weak or strong. It's just great and great."

Way has written every single issue of "Wolverine: Origins," and now that the series is nearing its conclusion, the writer feels pretty good. "I haven't gotten to the point where I can sit down and look back at the entire story, but it feels good. It feels like I've accomplished what I wanted to accomplish. I think we've done the best we can to give a just conclusion to this huge knot of problematic continuity that was Wolverine's past."


Depois de ter recuperado suas memórias com Dinastia M, Wolverine passou a caçar o responsável por torná-lo um instrumento de destruição nas páginas de Wolverine:Origins. Durante a série, Logan se deparou com o filho que não sabia que tinha, Daken, e acabou chegando também a Romulus, o responsável por fazê-lo ser quem é. Em março, começa o último arco , Reckoning (Acerto de Contas).

Em sua jornada, Logan, que só queria vingança, descobriu que é isso mesmo que Romulus quer: transformá-lo em um novo “Romulus”. A grande vantagem desse inimigo é que ninguém o conhece bem. Matando Romulus, Wolverine também será forçado a entrar em confronto com Daken, que deseja representar o topo da “cadeia alimentar”.

Diante de tantos desafios, Logan começa a tentar fazer ruir o império de Romulus, no arco “7 the Hard Way”. Caso ele tenha mesmo que matá-lo, não sobrará nada para fazer seu império permanecer de pé. Contudo, esse não é o melhor cenário, que seria Logan descobrir como reconciliar seu passado e resolver seu futuro. Para tanto, ele está atrás de novos aliados, como Bruce Banner, Skaar, Manto e Samurai de Prata.

Na próxima edição, a 44, teremos a apariação de uma obscura vilã conhecida como Ruby Thursday. De acordo com Way, ela é parte importante no plano, mas ele não pode revelar muito.

Depois do arco de “7 the Hard Way”, em março temos a estreia de “Reckoning”, com um prólogo na edição #46, que terá a participação de Noturno.

Em “Reckoning”, Wolverine vai acertar de uma vez por todas suas contas com Romulus. Se ele tivesse matado o vilão quando teve a oportunidade, teria se tornado quem Romulus queria que fosse. Ele não o fez, mas precisa resolver isso de uma vez por todas, sem se tornar um novo Romulus. As coisas ficam bem mais difíceis porque Daken está envolvido na história. Por isso, “Reckoning” será um crossover entre Origins e Dark Wolverine. A arte em Origins durante o arco ficará a cargo de Will Conrad, um brasileiro com estilo parecido com o de seu compatriota Mike Deodato.

Para Way, será a grande conclusão de um trabalho, que começou cinco edições antes, por suas próprias mãos. Ele acredita que fez tudo o que se propôs fazer e conseguiu ao máximo dar um ponto final nas dúvidas sobre o passado obscuro de Wolverine.
