Nisso eu discordo do Way... ele inventou mais coisa nova do passado do que explicou.
E não vejo muito esse novo passado do way sendo trabalhado por outros artistas pós-origem

X-Position com Kyle & Yost:

Spoiler:


It is a fantastic time to be a reader of comics based in the X-Men corner of the Marvel Universe. On top of numerous long-absent characters returning from the dead, meticulously planned long-term storylines are finally coming to fruition. Two of the scribes responsible for much of the "fun" our merry mutants are experiencing are Craig Kyle and Chris Yost, writers of the ongoing "X-Force," the current "Necrosha" event andthe upcoming "X-Men: Second Coming."
A good part of the X-Universe's future is dependent on the words that flow from these two gentlemen's keyboards, so we're lucky to have them joining us to answer your questions in today's X-POSITION. In addition to all their comic work, Yost is also working on the new animated "Avengers" television show and Kyle is busy as a producer on the live-action "Thor." As you might guess, their time is limited, so let's hop to your queries!

First up is Justice Foxx, and he wants to know more about fireworks and explosions - or, at least, the mutants that generate them. He also has a suggestion that hopefully won't make you sick...
I've heard you plan on leaving "X-Force" after "X-Men: Second Coming." Do you plan on leaving any drastic changes to make a big exit on your excellent run? I've also heard the cast may be somewhat different at this point. Any chance of Jubilee or Boom Boom joining it? Are there any other projects either of you are working on that includes them?


Chris Yost: Well, when I think of hardcore killers, I think Jubilee and Boom Boom...

Craig Kyle: [Laughs] Jubilee would be on my hit-list. And I would gladly put Boom Boom on, because I think we could make it work - just as we made Vanisher work. But if there's one thing I know about comics, it's never write a Jubilee comic. No offense to Justice Foxx, but I would never, ever write that character. And regarding the cast change...Chris?

Yost: Before our run is over, the cast will change.

Kyle: Yes, quite a bit - from top to bottom. I'd like to think that what we've done in our entire run was: 1) break a few toys, and then 2) hopefully, put a lot more out there for other writers and artists to work with. We tried to pick up the stories that we loved as kids and young adults - and grownadults. In the end, we're just trying to put out more things for people to play with...and break some things we felt deserved to be broken, and maybe some things that didn't.
We hoped to create and leave behind good stories so there's more to do after we go. It's not about wrapping up every loose end and making it impossible for someone keep the saga going...or making it too difficult for someone to come in and make it their own.

Also, in relation to the cast, I think it would be pretty cool if Typhoid Mary (a "closeted" mutie) joined up with X-Force. I think she'd be a great addition and would blend in well with the current roster. I believe she's still on the loose in Madripoor...

Yost: Isn't she already in "Avengers: The Initiative?" She's part of the Shadow Initiative, right?

Kyle: I like her. She won't be in the next group of characters, but she would be a good fit. But as Chris pointed out, she's in other places right now.

Yost: But we like her.

Kyle: Good suggestion, but...no.

Chickrockguitar is excited about the coming year and had a few questions about what to expect in 2010:

1) Are there any X-23/Hope scenes planned in either "X-Men: Second Coming" or "X-Force?" Hope seemed to form some sort of attachment to Laura, and they need to meet up again!


Yost: That will be touched on soon, if not already. In the pages of "Cable," there is a scene where Hope mentions Laura by name. And if it's not out yet...spoiler!

2) Any news on that third "X-23" miniseries?

Kyle: For now, that story's kind of on hold. There's lots of stuff coming with X-23 in the future, so for fans of her, there's wonderful surprises on the way. As for Chris and I writing that third story? For right now, that's been put on ice. We've had a lot of success and a lot of happy fans with the first two minis, and the last thing we want to do is put out one that is half-cooked.
Chris and I are up to our eyeballs in work right now, so to do that kind of final chapter of our work with her - the timing isn't right. If we can't give it our best, we're not going to do it halfway. It's something Chris and I would love to do, but I wouldn't look for it in the near future...unless Chris goes behind my back and does it without me.

Yost: I've already started it.

Kyle: [Chuckles] Look for it in 2010!

Yost: January 2010.

Kyle: Can I at least get a copy?

Yost: No.

3) How about "X-Force: Sex & Violence?" Is there a release date for this yet?

Yost: It's not on the schedule yet, but issue #2 is pretty much wrapped. Or, if not, it's close. And I know we say this every time, but - ohmigod! It is spectacular.

Kyle: When it does come out - and I think it will probably hit before we're out of the series - it will be worth the wait when it hits the shelves. It's going to be a neat way to wrap our work on the series. We kind of see that as a second ending to our time on the book. We're really looking forward to it, and it is beautiful and, selfishly as fans, we've loved the ride so far and we're grateful every time a page appears.
Hopefully, when people finally do get it in their hands, they'll feel that all that time was worth it. It's going to be a beautiful and twisted and screwed up and dark and funny and sexy and everything kind of book. For those who love our series now, I think that this will be some of the best they've ever seen from us, and it's because of the way (Gabrielle) Dell'Otto's bringing this stuff to life.

Yost: From a story perspective, our run on "X-Force" has been kind of a freight-train - there's never been that moment to do a side-story or take a breath or just have a down moment with the X-Force guys...and this is that in the most gorgeous way possible. This is X-Force taking a breath.

Ashley Keller would like a few other mutants to take a breath, and hopes they'll be able to do it here on terra firma.
Are there any plans to do another X-Jammers miniseries? It doesn't seem like they will be in "Realm of Kings." Or, will Alex, Lorna and Rachel return in time for "X-Men: Second Coming?"


Yost: I actually thought they were showing up in one of the cosmic books pretty soon, but we have had talks with the X-office about bringing them home. They are not forgotten.

Much like the leader of the "A-Team," Lance loves it when a plan comes together. He would just like to know more about your plans...
How complete were your plans for "Necrosha" when Wither first met Selene? What made you guys bring Asgard into "X-Force?" I love it, just so you know...


Yost: I think we had a pretty good idea. We knew in "New X-Men," when Selene seduced Wither and took him over to the dark side, where we wanted Selene to end up. So I think, as much as these things can be planned that far ahead, we had a really good idea of our plans.

Kyle: We are hardcore X-fanboys, so we know about her past with the New Mutants and Nova Roma and bits and pieces about what she's kind of been after over the course of her life. So we just grabbed those pieces and tried to build a bigger, fuller picture so that when people go back and read those classics, it all builds to the payoff we're telling now. For us, it's always trying to piece together what might be loose ends or bits and pieces from the past and tying them together in some screwed-up bow. So, yeah, I think a lot of the bigger pieces were in our mind right from the beginning.
[And regarding Asgard,] that obviously came once we got Rahne over the course of "Messiah CompleX," because at the point when we were first working with Wither, Rahne was not in the picture at all. So, being huge Arthur Adams fans and loving the Annuals that he did, any way that we could weave the stories he did into our own was the choice we wanted to make. So, the second we got Rahne, that was the story we definitely wanted to run with, because that felt like unfinished business.

Yost: And despite the fact that neither of us can pronounce the wolf's name (Hrimhari - the Wolf Prince from Asgard), we knew people wanted to see him.

Kyle: It's HRUM-HRA-HRI. Come on, it's easy...

Yost: It's spelled just like it sounds.

Kyle: It should eventually become a bark halfway through the word - almost as if you're choking. We'll do it live at a comicon eventually...

As a producer of the "Thor" movie, you can guarantee the character is in there, right?

Kyle: Oh, hell yeah! He is now. Rewrite!

Oh, the power of X-POSITION!
OK, Mikey is next, and he's wondering
what makes a good teammate...of evil.
Considering that the Black Queen gathered herself an "Inner Circle of Death" team with mutants who have death related powers, how come we haven't seen Threnody? I figure her powers would work real well with what's going on in "Necrosha."


Yost: I assumed since X-Man was coming back in the pages of "Dark X-Men" that Threnody was going after him, and Selene didn't really want to open that can of worms.

Excellent explanation. Let's see how you fare with Derek and his can of virus-infected worms...
I'm a little confused by the T-O virus. The first batch of humans infected by Eliphas seemed to be just that - humans. The Leper Queen even died and stayed dead after being shot by X-23. How come the resurrected mutants can reassemble themselves? Are they still technically dead or are they considered alive like the humans? Some of them - particularly the Genoshans - still look really dead.


Yost: I think the answer is twofold. I mean, it is all the techno-organic virus, but you have two different people manipulating it. In the first case, you have Bastion. Now, he brought back the human villains of the X-Men, but Bastion wanted to be in control of them. So, being a computer, he was actually able to manipulate the T-O virus - kind of rewrite it - and control these people. And we've seen with Trask - and even the Leper Queen - that he can override their thoughts and actions and take control of them. These are villains; he doesn't want them working against him, so he built in fail-safes. The other thing is, these people all have to pass as human, too. So even though they are T-O infected, they are as human as they can possibly be.
With the Leper Queen...the other thing about her was that her dying was always part of the plan. Now, with "Necrosha," you've got Selene and Eli Bard, who is a supernatural creature, manipulating the virus with magic, and that opens up a whole different doorway of possibilities. You've seen a little bit of it in "New Mutants," and you'll see a little bit more in "Necrosha," but it's very much like the T-O virus infused with magic.

Kyle: See? We don't make this stuff up. We think about it.

We never accused you otherwise, fellas. Wa Luigi wrote in with a couple of queries about upcoming battles. Can you tell him who will be giving as good as they're getting?
1) Out of all the members of Bastion's cabal, Cameron Hodge seems to be getting the most facetime in "Necrosha." Can we expect him to be leading the assault on Selene and X-Force if Bastion decides to take action? Also, the real motivation behind Hodge's "hatred" for Warren has been danced around by the X-writers for years. Will you guys be exploring the jilted lover aspect of Cameron's grudge?


Yost: No. I think Hodge has gotten a lot of facetime just because he's one of the more popular and more well-known of the cabal for longtime fanboys, plus he charges from The Right, which is like a full-on paramilitary organization that's out there and can go toe-to-toe with the X-Men. We did a bit with the Sapien League, and obviously we've done a lot with the Purifiers, but, you know...Hodge has gotten a decent amount of facetime, but Stryker and Leper Queen did too.

Kyle: Basically, everyone has a role in this fight, and Hodge will have one too.

2) Since we saw his selection of Dark Riders show up in Utopia, will Tyler Dayspring be showing up in "Necrosha" to take another crack at Wolverine?

Yost: No. Selene doesn't resurrect people who are too powerful or people from the future.

Taimur Dar sent in the final email of the week with questions about two characters - one a mutant, and the other...not so much.
1) I was hoping that Wallflower would play a role in "Necrosha," but it looks like Warren Ellis is already using her in his current "Astonishing X-Men" arc. I am curious though if you guys had planned to have Selene bring Wallflower back during "Necrosha" since she was an important character during your "New X-Men" run...


Yost: I think her presence will be felt in "Necrosha."

Kyle: It already is. I think it's also fair to say that she was definitely a character we thought we might've used more, but when someone like Warren Ellis decides they want to use a character - which they have every right to do, and obviously when it's Warren Ellis, you just get the hell out of their way and let them do their genius - you know, that's when you adjust your storyline. We're just thrilled that someone else decided to pick her up and dust her off - literally - and if it's going to be anyone, Warren Ellis is a hell of a candidate.

Yost: I heard it was part of his Marvel contract. He got to use Wallflower or he was out.

Kyle: [Laughs] We love Warren Ellis. He was one of the few people, when we were being reamed on the boards for blowing up that stupid bus, who came to our defense. Never met the guy, never talked to the guy, and he was out there telling people to shut up in the most creative way I'd ever seen. And, beyond just being a fan of his work, he's like my personal hero because he stood up when he didn't have to. I mean, he didn't know us from anybody and he stuck up for us, so I am happy to sing his praises whenever given the opportunity. Big fans over here from C&C...

Yost: Huge!

2) Craig, since you're a producer on the "Thor" movie, is there anything you can say about the status of the film to help build excitement among us fans?

Yost: Yeah, because there's no excitement now.

Kyle: I have to be very careful, because these are the kind of stories that can get me fired. You see, in comics I can say whatever I want and people let me be, but this is a far more serious matter. Not that I don't love the comics, but...

Yost: How about this: will Thor be in it?

Kyle: Mmm...I can't say that. I've had a chance to meet everyone involved in the film and all I can tell you is the passion that fans have for reading these books and for the film itself are matched by those in it. Everybody is beside themselves and they're just attacking it with everything they've got. It's amazing what a tight ship [Director] Ken [Branagh] is running and the way he works with these people. We have someone who is just extraordinary at the helm and someone who inspires us all - we're starting with the best.
My hope and belief is that we will get the best out of everyone involved because of the choices we made, starting with Ken. It's been an amazing journey so far, and one that only gets more incredible every day. I can't give any specifics, but I'm filled with hope, wonder, and excitement!

And on that happy note, it's my turn to offer up this week's "get-to-know-you" question with a little "Behind the X" fun. As it's the New Year, I'm going ask the obvious: What are your New Year's Resolutions?

Yost: Mine was to stop drinking Coke and Diet Coke, but I hate coffee, I hate tea, and I hate water most of all. So, I've already failed.

Kyle: My New Years resolution? I only have one that matters: I want to make the best @#$%ing movie Marvel has ever put out. And, looking at "Iron Man" as the bar, that is going to be no easy task. Thankfully we have an incredible director, an amazing cast, and some of the most talented, passionate and creative people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. It's going to be one hell of a year!

Kyle e Yost estão deixando o título e os leitores estão preocupados com os rumos que X-Force tomará. Os autores garantem que o cast vai mudar ainda antes do final da participação deles no título. Como dica, a mudança será no topo... quem sabe a liderança não passe mesmo para Cable? Quanto aos outros nomes, podemos descartar Jubileu e Mary Tifoide. Já a Dinamite, pode ser que apareça.

Falando sobre a X-23, já sabemos que a Hope a mencionou nas páginas de Cable do mês passado e um encontro pode vir a acontecer em Second Coming. A tão prometida mini da Laura ainda vai ter que esperar, pois há muita coisa importante reservada para seu futuro – será que eles matam a personagem?

Outro trabalho que ainda levará tempo para sair é a mini X-Force: Sex & Violence. A segunda edição ainda não ficou pronta, mas o trabalho está espetacular. Kyle acredita que a mini será lançada depois que eles já tiverem deixado o título.

Yost escreveu os Piratas Siderais em duas minis, Imperador Vulcano e X-Men: KingBreaker, e comentou que eles continuarão aparecendo nos títulos cósmicos, mas que não estão esquecidos na franquia-X, então podem voltar em breve.

Sobre Necrosha, a idéia de fazer a saga já veio com a interação de Selene e de Kevin durante Novos X-Men. Como são x-fanboys, quiseram trazer de volta tudo aquilo que envolvia os Novos Mutantes e Nova Roma para construir uma história ainda maior, recheada de alusão aos clássicos. O envolvimento com Asgard veio com a entrada de Rahne na equipe. E teremos um final sim, pelas mãos dos dois, do envolvimento de Lupina com Asgard.

Os autores também foram perguntados sobre a eventualidade da personagem Lamúria se juntar ao Círculo Interno de Selene, mas, como X-Man voltou a aparecer agora em Dark X-Men, ela estaria mais preocupada em ir atrás dele.

Uma dúvida interessante surgiu quanto ao vírus tecnorgânico. De início, parecia que Eli conseguia apenas infectar humanos com o vírus. Agora temos mutantes ressuscitados com o vírus. Yost responde que temos duas pessoas diferentes manipulando o mesmo vírus: Bastion, que é uma máquina e consegue, assim, manejar o vírus, chegando até a controlar a ação das pessoas infectadas, como a Rainha Leprosa; e temos também Selene e Eli Baird, que é uma criatura sobrenatural, capaz de manipular o vírus com mágica, o que abre novas possibilidades.

Bastion ainda dará uma cartada final e os autores são perguntados se isso acontecerá pelas mãos de Cameron Hodge durante Necrosha, já que ele ainda quer se vingar de Warren. Yost diz que Hodge não será o principal, mas estará envolvido quando Bastion for agir – o que ele não garantiu que seja durante Necrosha.

Sobre a possível volta de Tyler Dayspring, Yost disse que Selene não renasce pessoas vindas do futuro e nem aquelas que são muito poderosas.

Eles também disseram que a presença de Feromona será sentida durante Necrosha, mesmo que Ellis tenha utilizado a personagem recentemente em Astonishing X-Men. Kyle disse que quando um gênio como Ellis quis usar a personagem, eles rapidamente mudaram suas intenções de uma participação efetiva de Laurie em Necrosha e o deixaram utilizá-la.

X-Position com Wells:

Spoiler:


We begin today's email with some praise from Christopher Judd, because that's a great way to start off a Q&A. Don't worry though, he had queries aplenty too.
You've done outstanding work on "New Mutants!" In particular, I'm so pleased with your handling of Illyana. Being given clarity to her whereabouts, motives, and who she actually is in issue #9 was fantastic. I'm really looking forward to future developments. And speaking of the future...
1) Can we expect any of those futures to be visited by her and her teammates, still seeking out her bloodstones?


The New Mutants are going to get drawn into Illyana's world very quickly after "X-Men : Second Coming," so I'd give you a definite "yes" on this one.

2) And the soldiers from Limbo? Have they targeted the New Mutants specifically, or are they victims due to their association with Illyana?

They have a connection to all of the New Mutants, but they're targeting Illyana because she has a connection to the Bloodstones. At the end of their story, it will be very hard to see them as victims.

3) Once their purpose is defined in issue #10, can we fans finally rest assured that the "New Mutants" title is here to stay? And with that assurance, should we expect new uniforms, as teased in issue #6?

This is comics, Chris - we're here to stay as long as we have readers. And if new uniforms will keep you around, consider it done early in our second year.

4) Will the New Mutants be participating in "X-Men: Second Coming?" I recall being lead to believe Illyana specifically would be stepping up and making a prominent appearance among her fellow X-Men. Is this true? Can we expect the same of her teammates?

Oh, yes. The New Mutants will be front and center with the rest of the X-Men during "X-Men: Second Coming." It's going to be intense.

How intense? Will the team be getting a bit more firepower to help in this battle? Brian Davis has a few suggestions on teammates that might need to "level up."
1) Will there ever be a story arc or an issue where we see Danielle Moonstar with her powers back? I love how she has been handling herself, but it would be nice to see her powers (if even temporarily). Also, I don't see enough Brightwind. I think he's feeling neglected...


Keep your peepers peeled for "New Mutants" #11, written by the esteemable Kieron Gillen.

2) Will we see more of what Magik does when she goes to Limbo? Any chance of seeing her power levels manifesting or explained? In the original series, she only did simple spells (e.g. levitation, astral projection, illusion casting) while on earth. Is there any new development to this? And is her power level the same or has it increased?

Illyana has definitely become more in tune with her magical side, and the second year will largely be about exploring her world and what it means for the rest of the team. She's definitely learned some new tricks...

3) I assume that Legion and Warlock will become regular cast members (or supporting cast) because they aren't used anywhere else. Am I wrong in this assumption? If not, are any other notable cast shake-ups or additions coming our way?

You're right about one, half-right about the other. There will be shake-ups as a result of "X-Men: Second Coming."

Ahab has a suggestion that would shake things up greatly...although not in a way the New Mutants might appreciate.
Is there any chance of seeing more of the Hellions in the future? With limited space to tell the "Necrosha" story, I know there probably wasn't much opportunity to give a nod to past history, but it sure would be nice to find out more about past history and others' reactions to their return...


I hear that, Ahab. I definitely want to get the Hellions back in the book ASAP.

And speaking of resurrected mutants, there was a character that Irma Cuckoo wanted to see in "Necrosha" who failed to make an appearance. Can you help her with an explanation?
Did you plan to use Cannonball's deceased brother Jay (a.k.a. Icarus) in your "Necrosha" arc? He seemed like a perfect character to torment Sam with...


I would have loved to, Irma, but it came down to a matter of space. As Ahab pointed out above, I barely had room to give the Hellions ample spotlight. I agree that was a missed opportunity, though...


Patricio Oliver thinks there is another opportunity you should be taking advantage of with a former New Mutant whose name is so nice, you have to say it twice...
1) Shouldn't Boom Boom be furious that Sam and Berto left her out of the team? Especially after none of them showed up when she was kidnapped in "X-Force?" Let's not forget, she used to date them...


I don't think Sam and Berto left her out of the team on purpose. She just wasn't available when the team came together. I think Boom Boom is jumping to conclusions here...classic Boom Boom.

2) Does the New Mutants team know that Rusty was among the technozombies?

They'll definitely be made aware of it after the fact.

3) Where is Warlock's son?

He's back in space doing his space "stuff" while Dad visits earth.

4) Would it be too much to ask to give Shan a girlfriend? Aren't there any other lesbian girls besides Bling and her on the island? Please?

Yes, it would be too much to ask. I like my characters to experience the same soul-crushing dry spells I went through in my 20's. Seriously, though, as soon as I can fit it in, I will.

Sorry to hear about those dry spells. I wonder what that's like? As a comic book fan, I've never suffered such a dilemma. Hm, maybe we need to start up a dating thread on CBR's X-forums?
Before we get to that, however, it's time for some "Behind the X" fun where our readers get to know some of the secrets that make the X-writers tick. Zeb, here's my question for you: many of us have met celebrities at one time or another during our lives. If you could, tell us about a "star" you were a huge fan of that you actually got to meet and what occurred at the meeting...


I met Ken Foree, star of "Dawn of the Dead" (the real one) at Wizard World once. He signed a picture "Die hard, baby." I'm afraid it doesn't get better than that.

Os Novos Mutantes ganharão novos uniformes após Second Coming – evento que os terá no centro das ações, assim como os demais X-Men - e o título continuará saindo enquanto as vendas estiverem boas.

Depois de Second Coming, eles irão para o mundo (realidade) de Ilyanna, algo que já teremos uma prévia na edição 9 (saiu esse mês). Os soldados do Limbo estão atrás de Ilyanna, porque ela tem uma ligação com as Bloodstones. Os (novos) poderes de Magia serão explorados esse ano, assim como as implicações para o resto do time.

Antes do evento, porém, temos a edição 11, tie-in de Siege, escrito por Kieron Giellen, quando teremos nossas respostas para um possível retorno dos poderes de Dani.

Quanto à participação de Warlock e Legião no título, um será utilizado como membro regular da equipe e outro terá aparições. Second Coming vai chacoalhar o cast do grupo.

Aqueles que gostam dos Satânicos e ficaram felizes com a breve aparição deles durante Necrosha podem manter suas esperanças: Wells espera usá-los de novo em breve. Ainda sobre o arco, o autor infelizmente não teve espaço para usar o irmão morto de Sam, Joshua Guthrie. Eles também só souberam da presença de Rusty após o fim de Necrosha, pois estavam envolvidos em outros assuntos.

Outra personagem que foi lembrada foi Dinamite. Wells não acredita que ela tenha se chateado por ficar de fora do grupo, pois ela não estava disponível quando ele foi formado. Mas podemos aguardar alguma aparição de Boom Boom como nos velhos tempos.

Há ainda uma remota possibilidade de termos uma namorada para Shan aparecendo. O que podemos mesmo esperar é que ele explore realmente as dúvidas e tudo o mais pelo que jovens de 20 anos passam.

John Barber fala sobre sua história em Nation X #2:

Spoiler:


CBR News: John, you worked at Marvel for several years, editing books like "X-Force," "Ultimate Spider-Man," and "Marvel Zombies." What made you want to move over to writing, and how did this story in particular come about for you?

John Barber: Before I was an editor at Marvel I used to write and draw webcomics. There's a site called moderntales.com, and I was one of the original creators there. The webcomics that I was doing for that site caught the attention of Bill Jemas back when I was first hired by Marvel. I was at Marvel for about five years, and I really enjoyed my time editing. I loved the books I was working on and the people I was working with, but by the end, there was a part of me that wanted to get back to writing, because I'm not that great of an artist [Laughs].
So I talked to Axel Alonso, Joe Quesada, David Bogart and some other people at Marvel. I left on good terms, and I'm still friends with everybody. After I quit, I totally expected to work on creator-owned stuff right out of the gate, and I am working on some of that, but I was lucky enough to pitch for a short story in "Nation X." Nick Lowe, the editor of the series, seemed to like the pitch enough, so we did the story.

How does it feel now that your first Marvel Comic featuring a story written by you is in stores?

This is the first comic I've ever done for a big company, and it's pretty crazy. The characters in my story are Martha Johansson and Quentin Quire from the Grant Morrison run on "New X-Men." I Think back to where I was when those comics were coming out, and the idea that my first Marvel story is writing these two characters is kind of crazy, in a good way. It's very exciting.

What was it that made Martha a compelling character to write about?

When Nick sent the description of what I'd be pitching on, he had a list of characters and Martha Johansson and Quentin Quire were both on the list. I remembered that Quentin was a vapor in a jar somewhere and Martha was pretty much a brain in a jar. I thought putting those two characters into conflict would be a tough story to write. So I pitched a couple of other ideas.
I always like the characters Morrison introduced in "New X-Men," though, and Martha was such a weird and tragic character. She's just a brain in a jar. She can't move and she can only communicate telepathically and I think the last time we saw her, I believe she was being pulled out of a bowling ball bag in Beast's room. So I hoped there was a better life for her than just that.

Quentin Quire is a character who has evolved a bit since his introduction in "New X-Men." What do you feel are his essential character traits?

For me, it's sort of a youthful arrogance. He learns, but he considers himself to the be equal, and in most cases superior, to any of the X-Men. At least, that's my take on him.
I thought it would be interesting to see how he reacted to the X-Men's move to Utopia, because that's kind of what he wanted, a mutant nation of his own. He didn't go about that in any reasonable way in "Riot at Xavier's," the story where he was introduced. He was out to prove mutant superiority, though, by separating them from the outside world of humans. So in his twisted mind, he sees Utopia as a bastardization of that.

What can you tell us about the plot and themes of your story? What are Quentin and Martha up to?

Quentin has basically been hanging out in a jar in Beast's room since, I believe, the "Phoenix Endsong" mini-series. In this story, he's pulled himself back together and is mentally back into the state he was in when we saw him in "New X-Men." I'm not discounting the other stories that happened, but he's de-mellowed out. He's had some time to think about things and doesn't want to just relax on a higher plane any more.
There's less than 200 mutants now, and they're living on an island. So he sees the X-Men as having failed the mutant race, and they've stolen his idea of being separate from humanity. So he hatches a plan to sink Utopia, but being arrogant as he is, he decides that if he's going to be a supervillain, he wants a superhero to fight him. He lays out his plan to Martha Johansson, believing that she won't have any way to stop him, but he offers her the chance anyway.

It sounds like this is a fast-paced race-against-time style story?

Very. It's called "7 and1/2," which is the number of minutes Martha has to save the island. So she immediately tries the obvious route to stop Quentin, and when that doesn't work, she keeps trying.

Since this story takes place on Utopia, I imagine you'll have plenty of supporting characters involved in the action.

Yeah. We get a little bit of Iceman, a little bit of Nezhno, and even a little bit of Warpath, which is nice. Since "X-Force" was one of the titles I worked on, I wanted to give Warpath some face time.

What's it like working with artist David Lopez on this story?

It's exciting. One of the funny things is, I actually know most of the creators whose stories appear in "Nation X" #2, but I was really excited when Nick Lowe said David was going to be drawing my story. That's because I've been a fan of his for some time, and it's just amazing to see some of the work he did on this. He's a terrific artist.
John Rausch, our colorist, also did an amazing job. The book looks absolutely spectacular. And I think "Nation X" as a whole is a really great series. Issue #2 has a lot of great stuff in it. So it's worth checking out even if you don't like me [Laughs].

Do you have any other upcoming projects that fans should keep an eye out for?

I've got another Marvel short story lined up that I can't talk about because the project hasn't been announced yet. I've got a limited series at IDW that I also can't talk about and I'm actually premiering a new web comic today. It's called "Outside Infinity" and it's at webcomicsnation.com/thejohnbarber.

John Barber, que foi editor de títulos como X-Force há alguns anos, está de volta aos quadrinhos, escrevendo uma pequena história de Nation X. É seu primeiro trabalho como escritor para uma grande editora e foram escolhidos dois personagens que não ganham muito destaque e foram criadas na era Morrison: Quentin Quire e Martha Johansson.

Ele escolheu Martha, que é uma personagem trágica, pois é um cérebro dentro de um vaso. Ela não se move e só se comunica telepaticamente. Do outro lado, temos Quire, que é um pouco de arrogância, sentindo-se igual e, às vezes, até superior aos X-Men. A história mostra como ambos se encaixam agora na mudança a Utopia. Quentin se vê destinado a ser um supervilão e, sendo assim, ele precisa encontrar heróis para enfrentar. Martha, por seu lado, fará de tudo para impedi-lo.

Como a história se passa em Utopia, temos alguns personagens secundários, como Homem-de-Gelo, Nezhno e Apache. Este último para Barber relembrar seus tempos com a X-Force. Os desenhos ficam por conta de David Lopez.

Barber terá ainda um próximo trabalho na Marvel, mas que ainda é surpresa. Ele também trabalha com outras editoras. Seu mais recente trabalho é uma história publicada na Internet, chamada “Outside Infinity”.

Fraction fala da volta da Kitty:

Spoiler:


Since her first appearance in Marvel Comics' "Uncanny X-Men," #129 Kitty Pryde has operated under a variety of different heroic monikers, such as Sprite, Ariel and Shadowcat. Throughout the years, the young mutant's costumes and code names may have changed, but the qualities that made her a hero, like her kindness and her courage, never did. One of Kitty's most heroic moments came at the end of writer Joss Whedon and artist John Cassaday's acclaimed run on "Astonishing X-Men," when she used her mutant phasing power to save the Earth from a giant bullet that an alien despot had fired at it.

This act of heroism separated Kitty from her teammates, and for some time now, she's been trapped inside the gigantic bullet as it continued its journey through space. This March, after spending several years in her interplanetary prison,Kitty comes home in "Uncanny X-Men" #522. CBR News spoke with writer Matt Fraction about the return of the fan-favorite character.

Kitty's exile into space occurred in 2008's "Giant Size Astonishing X-Men" #1, but plans for her return were in the works even before that issue hit stores. "It's been at least two years, maybe even longer. I want to say it was my first X-Summit, where I brought up the idea," Fraction told CBR News. "I knew very early on that Magneto was coming back and would become part of the dynamic of the X-Men. I knew what he was up to and what his personality would be. I also knew how that would complicate and and challenge personal relationships and, ultimately, he would have to demonstrably make good.

"The X-Men may not have reacted by thinking, 'He's here. Let's punch him!' But they still don't trust him. So I wanted to build that [trust] by having him give a gift to the X-Men, who are now his people, in the form of Kitty. It felt very right in this weird, full-circle way," Fraction continued. "It brought all these people back and made sense; especially with the way things are with the current 'Nation X' storyline and the emotional and character arcs we've been telling for the past eight months."

Before Fraction implemented his plan to bring Kitty back to the X-Men, he sought out feedback from a fellow creator. "I called Joss Whedon and ran it by him. I enjoyed and respected the job he and John did on 'Astonishing X-Men,' so his approval meant a lot to me. I felt like I was asking if it was okay if I dated his daughter," Fraction joked. "I wanted to make sure that the guy who wrote Kitty's exit approved, and when he said he liked what we wanted to do, it fired me up to do this crazy story."

Kitty's return comes at what seems like a busy time for the X-Men. "Uncanny" #522 is the final installment of the current "Nation X" arc, a story which has found the X-Men dealing with Magneto joining their ranks, the threat of a mysterious new set of enemies and the infrastructure problems stemming from the move to their new island home of Utopia. "Issues #520-521 are kind of the wrap up to 'Nation X,' and #522 serves almost as an epilogue or a coda. Everything but the X-Men and Magneto story is resolved by #522," Fraction explained. "In issues #520-521, the other storylines terminate and everything focuses down to just Magneto and Magneto's return. Magneto problematizes the question of what exactly Utopia is. As 'Nation X' progresses, Magneto will realize that it's going to require deeds, not words, from him. So he decides to present a gift to the X-Men."

Kitty Pryde's return isn't just a present for the X-Men - Fraction is excited about the character's return as well. Fraction says that he finds the character very compelling for several different reasons. "I don't want to say too much and tip my hand, but she's the one who started off as a kid. For so many of us who read the X-Men chronologically, Kitty was the one who was our age. She was a sidekick-type character at first, but she was also an advocate for us. And, since Kitty, there have been a number of characters for younger readers to identify with, like Jubilee, Armor and Pixie," Fraction said. "Plus, Kitty was a voice of sanity and sweetness. She was incorruptibly good."

The story of Kitty's return will be fully told in "Uncanny X-Men" #522, but the issue also seeds future plot lines in which the character will figure prominently. "The issue has a cliffhanger for the ages, as we go rocketing into the events of 'Second Coming' [A crossover event between all the X-Titles which kicks off in March and completes the "Messiah" trilogy of X-crossover stories.]," Fraction remarked. "So we wrap a chapter and get a glimpse of a new one before heading into 'Second Coming.'"

Kitty doesn't play a huge role in "Second Coming," but Fraction isn't bringing the character back only to let her recede into the background. "'Second Coming' is really the story of Cable and Hope, but Kitty will be very important after," Fraction stated. "Kitty being back is a big part of our next year. With where we are in 'Second Coming' and then coming out of it, Kitty's return couldn't come at a better time for all involved. So she's coming back right as there's a giant Kitty-shaped hole in the X-Men."

Two artists are helping Fraction bring to life "Uncanny X-Men" #522, and the writer has been very pleased by the work done by both of them. "It's an extra sized issue. Whilce Portacio is doing the main story. An X-Men legend is coming back to tell the story of an X-Men legend coming back," Fraction said. "We also got the opportunity to do an eight page bonus story with Phil Jimenez. This was a very special issue that was really important to me and I'm very proud of the way it turned out."

Kitty Pryde's return comes at a pivotal point for both the X-Men and the larger Marvel Universe. After she and her teammates face the challenges of "Second Coming," they'll find themselves standing alongside the Marvel U's other champions in a new "Heroic Age."

"The coming 'Heroic Age' is fun because it gives us some possibilities that we've not really had in a long time. Issue #526 is our first issue set during the 'Heroic Age,' and we have a couple of guest stars," Fraction said. "The issue is about two characters who have recently had a momentous scene together, and we follow each of them dealing with the ramifications of 'Second Coming' and other stories like 'Siege.' They both encounter characters in their respective halves of the book, and that helps to queue us up with where we're going. So it's fun.

I wrote #526 over the holidays and thought it was a blast because you get to see some characters you don't normally see get together. So, in a way it feels like the X-Men have been invited to a much bigger party."

Kitty Pryde é uma personagem camaleônica, tendo adotados diferentes codinomes – Ninfa, Ariel, Lince Negra – e uniformes durante sua vida. Mas certas qualidades que a tornam uma heroína, como a amabilidade e a coragem, jamais mudaram. Um dos principais momentos heroicos foi o final do run de Whedon e Cassaday, em Astonishing X-Men, em que ela salvou a Terra de uma bala gigante. Nesse momento, ela acabou ligada à bala, tendo que vagar pelo espaço.

Contudo, Matt Fraction traz novamente a personagem de volta à cena, em Uncanny X-Men #522, em março. De acordo com o Fraction, a ideia apareceu em sua primeira conferência com os editores-X. Magneto entrou para o grupo e precisava ganhar a confiança de seus novos companheiros – não havia maneira melhor disso acontecer do que tendo Kitty de volta. Antes, porém, de pôr em prática seus desejos, ele obteve a aprovação de Joss Whedon.

E a volta de Kitty vem em um momento conturbado, quando Nation X vem chegando ao fim – com Magneto entrando nos X-Men e vários problemas surgindo em Utopia - e o caminho está posto para Second Coming. Nas edições #520 e #521, veremos Magneto se encaixando dentro do grupo e ele perceberá que ações são as melhores formas de provar que quer fazer parte dos X-Men. Assim, decide presentear os X-Men, com o retorno de Kitty. Só que, durante Second Coming, Kitty não terá papel relevante – mas vai ser bastante importante para os X-Men que ela retorne para eles - e sua volta só será melhor explorada ao final do evento.

Como a edição #522 será maior do que o normal, dois desenhistas farão a arte: Whilce Portacio, antigo desenhista do título nos anos 90, escreverá a história principal e a outra parte terá a arte de Phil Jimenez, que está fazendo Astonishing X-Men.

Depois de Second Coming, os X-Men terão maiores ligações com o Universo Marvel, no que já está sendo chamada de Nova Era Heroica. A primeira edição que estará encaixada dentro desse novo rumo é Uncanny #526, também feita por Fraction, com a participação de personagens importantes de outros títulos da editora. Após Second Coming e Siege, os X-Men serão novamente “convidados” a participar de uma grande “festa” do Universo Marvel.

X-Position com Jason Aaron:

Spoiler:


Marius665 begins today's fun by inquiring about possible visitors for Wolverine. After all, even berserkers get lonely…

1) Are there any plans on doing an arc with the New Avengers? Since Wolverine has been part of the team for awhile, it'd be sweet to have an arc with his Avenger's team backing him up on a mission. I'd like to see how you would write Luke, Bucky, Ronin, Echo and Spider-Man with the dark serious tone of your series.


Yes, you will see some of the New Avengers popping up alongside Wolverine very soon. I write Luke Cage and his wife Jessica for the first time in "Wolverine: Weapon X" #10, and then you'll see even more Avengers in the big new arc that starts with #11. In particular, Captain America plays a big role in that arc. Actually, Steve Rogers and Bucky both show up.

2) I also wanted to ask if, at any point, you could shed some light on the character known as the Native. She's a part of Wolverine's past that still hasn't been explored. You've been showing us a great deal of what's going on with Logan's mind and feelings, so I thought it might be appropriate.

I was a big fan of Greg Rucka's run on the series, so I remember the Native well. No plans right now for her to show up again, but you never know. There's a story coming later this year that'll feature more characters from Logan's past than anything I've written before, so stay tuned.

Bloody Fun wants us to take a slight detour in our X-POSITION today. As long as he can stick with our theme of entertaining violence, I'll allow it. Oh look, he can…

I love your run on "PunisherMAX!" It's been fantastic! I had a few questions I hope you could answer (even though they're not X-related):

1) How did you decide to begin your run with this re-telling of the Kingpin's origin?


Hey, a Punisher question! Are we allowed to do that? Well, there's an X in MAX, so I guess that's okay. As for why I brought in the Kingpin, that was Editor Axel Alonso's idea. He knew I'd need something a little extra to set my run apart from Garth's legendary take on the character, and Kingpin proved to be just what we needed. Once he brought up Kingpin though, I told him we had to do Bullseye as well. Writing the new MAX version of Bullseye is about as much sick and twisted fun as I've ever had in comics.

2) In the past, it seems the Kingpin's wife has usually been played as an innocent bystander (at least in earlier books). What made you decide to make her…less "clean?"

That's closer to the character she had become in recent years, really. And I wanted Fisk to be a guy who's lying to everyone around him, who's always scheming and hiding his true self, except with his family. He's honest with his family. He clearly loves his wife and kid and wants the best for them. He's just got a horrible way of going about trying to better himself.

3) How long are you on this book? Will you be writing it for the foreseeable future?

Yes. This is a multi-arc story.

4) Will this run feature heroes and super-villains from the Marvel U? Or are you going to keep it to street-level thugs?

You won't see anyone in costume, no. But did I mention Bullseye MAX?

5) At the moment, the book seems to be investigating the character of Kingpin more than the Punisher. Is this going to be a book that looks more at the Punisher's motivations? Or would you say it's enough for fans to know that his family is dead and he hates the mob?

I will indeed be looking more into Frank's motivations in an upcoming arc. I'll actually be exploring something about his origin that no one has addressed before.

Now that we've given a treat to all the Punisher fans out there, back to Wolverine! Hunter Lambright had some questions about recent individuals messing with Logan's mind:

1) How soon will we see a follow-up to the revelation regarding Maverick at the end of "Wolverine: Weapon X" #5? I'm excited for the future of the character and how this shakes up the relationship between him and Logan…


That is definitely coming, it's just a matter of when we'll be able to fit it in. Yeah, I'm excited to do more with Maverick. I really got to like the guy while writing him.

2) Some people have compared Dr. Rot to the Joker. Were you intentionally trying to give Wolverine a Joker-esque villain or was that just how the character ended up?

Yeah, that's definitely what I was going for. I wanted a straight-up psycho who could strike at Logan in the one way that he's the most vulnerable: mentally. It's hard to come up with characters who pose much of a threat to Logan physically, but mentally, he's as vulnerable as anyone - maybe even more so since he's got this raging berserker buried inside him. Dr. Rot is my favorite villain I've created at Marvel, and as you'll see in issue #9, the good doctor's not done with Logan, not by a long shot.

Aspbros sent in a handful of Wolvie questions, including one about Dr. Rot's unsanitary sanitarium setting:

1) The insane asylum you placed Wolverine in was freaky as heck. Where it something that just lurked in the darkest corners of your mind? Or were you basing it off a movie or book (or experience)?


Ha! No personal experience, despite what you might suspect. I guess these days when I think of a big creepy asylum, I think of the movie "Session 9." That was definitely on my mind a lot while writing this arc. If you haven't seen it and you're up for having the holy bejeezus scared out of you, do check it out.

2) I want to see some guest stars in this book! Any chance of Daken, X-23, or Deadpool making an appearance? What about Chamber or Marrow (as they have ties to Weapon X too)?

Guest stars? Look no further than issue #9, guest-starring Psylocke and Nightcrawler; or issue #10 which features appearances by several different women from Logan's life; or issue #11 featuring Steve Rogers. Beyond that, yes, we will have more guest stars, maybe even a couple of the ones you mention. Stay tuned. Gonna be a helluva year for old Logan.

3) Wolverine's ability to heal and regenerate has been shown at different extremes in different books. Where do you feel it exists? For example, what would a grenade do to him? How about a flame-thrower?

I go with the idea that Logan could indeed be killed, but it would just take a lot. I've certainly never written him as invulnerable. I love his healing factor. I love the story ideas it offers. The first big Wolverine story I did, back in "Wolverine" #56, had Logan trapped in a pit, being shot to hell by a giant machine gun, having to use his wits to find his way out. I also did a lot of narration in my "Get Mystique" story about Logan's healing process and all the pain he endures.

I just try to address the healing factor in a way that explores his character. I couldn't tell you exactly what its limits are. You won't see me writing him as a walking metal skeleton, I know. I don't like to see Logan turned into an indestructible Terminator. I do like to run him through the wringer every now and then though, just to show how it affects him.

4) What do you feel Wolverine's greatest weakness is?

Beer.

Capt. Cavalier sent in our final email of the day, and wants to know more about Weapon X - both the group and your book!

1) How do you view Weapon X (the project) in terms of Wolverine? Did Weapon X turn Logan into a monster? Or was Wolvie always a monster and Weapon X gave him the tools to become a more efficient killing machine? In light of "Origins," isn't all that Weapon X did is lace his body with adamantium, making his healing factor more effective? What am I missing?


Weapon X did more than just give Logan the adamantium. They were also trying to turn him into a mindless killing machine who would follow their orders without question. I wouldn't say that Logan was already a monster. He was certainly damaged goods, though. You couldn't lose your parents in such a traumatic way and then wind up living in the woods, being raised by wolves, and not turn out a little bit damaged. Weapon X just exploited the dysfunction that was already there and made it worse.

2) I'm really enjoying the way things are going right now with "Wolverine: Weapon X," but I'm kind of curious the direction this book is going to go. Can you give us some hints regarding stories that are coming in the future?

Issue #10: Love and sex.

Issues #11-15: Deathloks! Captain America! Time-travel! More Deathloks!

Issue #16: Requiem for [name withheld].

And beyond: Shhh, the next big arc is still a secret. I can't even tell you the title without ruining it. I'll just say that Logan goes somewhere he's never gone before and faces his greatest enemy in recent memory. And wait'll you see who pops up along the way. I can guarantee there'll be some faces you never expected to see. Oh boy, it's gonna get ugly.

Sounds fun, but as we don't want to leave things on an ugly note, I'll jump in here with this week's "Behind the X" question. In an effort to let fans know a little bit more about the man who writes some of Marvel's roughest characters, tell us - what's the most dangerous activity you've ever participated in (e.g. sky-diving, bear hunting, etc.) and why?

"Lunch" with Matt Fraction and Tony Moore. God, I thought I'd never get out of there alive.

Wolverine é um dos personagens mais superexpostos do Universo Marvel: dono de duas mensais – atualmente Wolverine:Origins e Weapon X – e com participações em X-Men, X-Force e Novos Vingadores. Jason Aaron, escritor de Weapon X, deu uma entrevista ao CBR, em que conta os planos para as próximas edições da revista.

Os fãs de Novos Vingadores ficarão contentes em saber que alguns membros da equipe darão as caras no título de Aaron. Luke Cage e sua esposa Jessica aparecerão na edição 10 e, a partir do número seguinte, começa um arco com grandes participações, como Steve Rogers e Bucky.

Entre os personagens ligados ao universo-x, temos Psylocke e Noturno na edição 9 e várias mulheres da vida de Logan na #10. Muito provavelmente Daken, X-23 e Deadpool também apareçam. Para os fãs da passagem de Greg Rucka no título, infelizmente a personagem Nativa não ganhará uma chance.

Em Weapon X, no primeiro arco, tivemos uma revelação que abalou a amizade entre Logan e Maverick. Aaron não vê a hora de continuar essa história, então podemos ficar atentos ao título esse ano, porque definitivamente esse é um plot que será retomado.

No segundo arco, Wolverine está em um hospício, aos cuidados do misterioso doutor Rot. Esse médico guarda muitas semelhanças com o Coringa. É um vilão que consegue atingir o maior ponto fraco de Logan: sua mente (embora, brincando, Aaron admita que o grande inimigo do Carcaju é a cerveja). É muito difícil escrever coisas novas com oponentes que possam atacá-lo fisicamente, mas, mentalmente, podemos ler uma boa história. Aaron considera Rot seu vilão favorito entre os que criou para a Marvel.

O hospício criado pelo autor foi bastante inspirado no filme de terror “Session 9”, não em alguma experiência própria de Aaron, como ele fez questão de ressaltar.

Uma pergunta intrigante foi a respeito de como o escritor vê o fator de cura de Logan, já que alguns autores o escrevem como praticamente imortal, devido a esse dom. Aaron acredita que ele pode ser morto, mas isso demandaria muito esforço. Wolverine não é invulnerável – nem indestrutível, mas Jason não sabe qual é o limite de regeneração - e seu fator de cura é algo que rende ótimas histórias. Por exemplo, quando descreveu minuciosamente a dor de Logan ao se regenerar no arco “Caçada à Mística”, após Complexo de Messias.

Por fim, Aaron conta mais da complicada relação entre o projeto Arma X e a Arma X (Wolverine). O projeto não apenas deu a Logan seu adamantium, mas trabalhou intensivamente em torná-lo uma máquina de guerra que seguiria ordens sem questionar. Só que a Arma X só pôde fazer isso sobre Logan, explorando condições traumáticas pré-existentes. Eles pioraram um gérmen que estava lá dentro.

Dicas para as próximas edições:
#10: Amor e sexo.
#11 a 15: Deathloks (um anti-heróis cibernético da Marvel), Capitão América, viagens no tempo e mais Deathloks.
#16: Requiem para algum personagem não-revelado.

Depois disso, é um mistério. A simples mênção do nome do arco arruinaria tudo. Aaron apenas adianta que Logan vai para um lugar aonde nuca foi e enfrenta o maior inimigo recentemente. Podemos aguardar também pelas aparições de algumas pessoas inesperáveis.

IGN entrevista Liu e Way:

Spoiler:


IGN Comics: What makes Daken decide that now is the time to make his move against Romulus? Do the events of Siege influence him in some way?

Marjorie Liu: Oh, sure. The events of Siege will most certainly contribute to his desire to get the ball rolling on his destiny. Why wait for a good thing when you can make it happen now?

IGN Comics: How literally should readers take the ending of Dark Wolverine #82? Has Daken really made his move against Osborn?

Liu: Have you ever heard of Schrödinger's Cat? It's a paradoxical thought experiment, in which a cat is placed in a sealed box filled with poison. Until you open up the box to see whether the cat is alive or dead, both possibilities exist simultaneously. Think of Osborn as being the cat in the closed box. And Daken is the poison.

IGN Comics:How would you describe the relationship between Daken and Wolverine in this arc? Are they working toward a common goal, or is Wolverine as interested in stopping his son as he is Romulus?

Liu: Nothing is as it seems in this arc, not even the relationship between Daken and Wolverine.

Daniel Way: Especially the relationship between Daken and Wolverine.

IGN Comics: What is the state of Romulus' empire at the outset of "Reckoning"? Has Wolverine managed to leave him reeling following the events of "Seven the Hard Way"?

Way: Wolverine has definitely put Romulus on his guard. For the first time, Romulus is forced to consider the fact he may not know Wolverine as well as he thinks he does.

IGN Comics: Will the team Wolverine assembled in "Seven the Hard Way" remain on board to assist him?

Way: Some of them, yes. Others will have served their purpose/performed their part of the mission during the previous arc. Wolverine knows that things are about to get really ugly, so he's going to try to make sure that the least amount of people are in the kill zone.

IGN Comics: Silver Samurai was present at the beginning of Wolverine's quest, and now Wolverine owes him a favor. Will we see Harada call in that favor before the story comes to a close?

Way: No, but after the events of this arc, he will be seeking out Daken…

IGN Comics: Have Daken and Wolverine eliminated every other possible successor to Romulus' throne? Will we see any other characters return to make their grab for power?

Way: Who said there'd be anything left to grab?

IGN Comics: Cloak noted that Wolverine is terrified of his future at the moment. What exactly would you say Logan is terrified of? Is he afraid for his life, his son's life, or that he might fail in this mission?

Way: All of the above. Wolverine, for almost as long as we've known him, has been obsessed with his past. Assuming he makes it through this arc alive, he'll be stepping into entirely unknown territory—his future. What lies ahead for Wolverine? What is his future?

IGN Comics: Cyclops and the X-Men have tried to intervene in Wolverine's quest before. Will they try to stop Wolverine from carrying out his final plan?

Liu: Not in this particular story, which focuses very much on the relationship between Wolverine, Daken, and Romulus. God help anyone who interferes with their final confrontation.

Way: Cyclops is no fool—he knows that intervening would gain nothing, and possibly cost him anything.

Can you say anything about the future of either series following this crossover? We know Wolverine Origins is slated to end with issue #50. Will Dark Wolverine remain? Will we see major changes to Dark Wolverine once Wolverine Origins wraps?

Liu: Dark Wolverine will most certainly remain, though any major changes will probably be limited to Daken himself. After this story arc, nothing is going to be the same for him. This is the one confrontation he's been waiting for, the big battle, the culmination of everything he's been working toward - after that's over, what has he got left?

Way: It's already been decided that Daken will continue in his own book after this arc. We've yet to decide on a title, but it's certain that Marjorie and I will be staying on board.


Chegou às comic shops americanas na última quarta-feira a primeira parte do tie-in de Siege em Dark Wolverine. O IGN conversou com os autores Marjorie Liu e Daniel Way sobre o que o futuro reserva para as histórias de Daken.

A edição #82, tie-in de Siege, mostra Daken traindo Osborn. Liu, explicando a cena final da edição, compara a mesma com o Gato de Schröndiger, experimento no qual se coloca veneno dentro de uma caixa fechada, contendo um gato. Antes de abrir a caixa para constatar se o gato foi envenenado ou não, tanto a possibilidade de ele ter sido, quanto de não ter sido, existem simultaneamente. Em sua metáfora, Liu atribui o papel do gato a Osborn; o do veneno, a Daken.

Sem estragar as próximas surpresas dentro de Siege, os autores tratam também das próximas histórias do título, um cross com Wolverine:Origins. Liu afirma que os eventos de Siege terão forte impacto na aspiração de vingança de Daken contra Romulus, o que será mostrado no cross.

O outro personagem principal do cross é Wolverine. Em “Reckoning”, veremos que o relacionamento entre pai e filho – Logan e Daken – também não é o que parece ser. Durante o cross, alguns personagens que apareceram no último arco de Origins estarão de volta, mas Wolverine fará de tudo para evitar que o menor número possível de pessoas esteja em meio a uma zona de guerra. Um dos personagens que veremos ao final do arco é o Samurai de Prata, que estará procurando por Daken.

Por fim, ainda temos como o grande antagonista do cross, Romulus. Depois de ter sido aparentemente derrotado por Wolverine algumas edições atrás, ele foi forçado a reconhecer que talvez não conheça Logan o suficiente para saber qual será seu próximo passo. “Reckoning” se trata justamente do relacionamento entre Wolverine, Daken e Romulus, e os X-Men não interferirão no caminho de Logan.

Origins acaba na edição 50, mas Dark Wolverine continuará a ser publicada, mas com mudanças limitadas ao próprio Daken, porque tudo será diferente para ele após “Reckoning”. Daken terá a chance de lutar a batalha de sua vida, tudo aquilo para que nasceu. Se o nome do título continuará a ser Dark Wolverine – já que Dark Reignestá chegando ao final, os autores ainda não sabem, mas ambos continuarão escrevendo as histórias de Daken.

X-Position com Peter David:

Spoiler:


Dani starts off today's fun with a few questions about the aforementioned smooch and the various relationships on the team...
First off, cheers for your work in "Nation X: X-Factor" – it was splendid and I can't wait for the next installment of your current arc "The Invisible Woman Has Vanished" (loving that the Richards' kids in it). But I have a few quick questions:
1) I liked the whole Rictor-Shatterstar-Boom Boom thing. Why, in your mind, did Shatterstar kiss Boom Boom though?


Because he found her attractive. Because he enjoys it. Because he thought she would be receptive to it. As has been pointed out elsewhere, Shatterstar's experience with everything from social interaction to sexual appetites was relatively limited. His exposure to humanity, however, has made him hungry to learn more...about everything. He's like a kid in a candy store, and there's plenty of sweets all around.

2) And can you give us any word on when Rictor's gonna sit Shatterstar down and talk to him about their "relationship" further? We can see his feelings are a timebomb going "tick, tick, tick..."

It's going to have to be pretty soon, I'd think. Shatterstar is interested in exploring various aspects of human interaction and sensuality, and he very much wants Rictor to explore it along with him. And Rictor's not exactly sure that's what he signed on for.

3) You didn't really leave Longshot on Utopia did you? As long as he and Dazzler aren't getting back together for good, he should be with X-Factor.

Nah. Longshot presumably makes his way back to New York in between issues. He and Allison aren't back together for good. Ex's having a hook-up isn't exactly all that unusual a thing in the real world, so I didn't see why we couldn't have the characters indulge themselves. I figure it's called "Utopia" for a reason.

Derek (and a few other fans) noticed someone else who seemed intrigued by Shatterstar. Maybe you can help clarify this and a few other items that were on Derek's mind...
1) From his reaction in "Nation X: X-Factor," do you think Iceman was up for a bit of Shatterstar?


I didn't think Iceman had much of a reaction, really. He just kind of stood there. That was by design; it was something that readers could read as much or as little into as they want.

2) At the end of the day, is Layla a mutant? I was a bit confused by that part. How come she confused Sentinel sensors?

It comes and goes, literally. Which makes her unique in that regard. There's a reason for it, and I may get around to explaining it if there seems a reasonable place to do so.

3) The team is quite big at the moment. Do you plan to keep it that size or streamline it?

I'm not planning to punt anyone from the team at this point. You can have a goodly number of individuals without it becoming unwieldy. Especially if you look at it with a sort of "Mission: Impossible" point of view, namely deciding who the most suited characters are for any particular mission.

Steve McSheffrey has some kind words for our guest and a quick question about someone who moves...quickly.
First, I'd like to say thank you to Mister David for years of reading entertainment – both in comics and his book writing. I don't think any other creator in the industry today has such a good track record of providing me with faultless entertainment. As for my question, I was wondering if the Avengers books are retaining custody of Quicksilver for the time being? He's much less interesting as an Avenger and it'd be a shame if the answer is yes...


At the moment, Pietro is remaining with the Avengers. Honestly, with all the bad blood between him and X-Factor at the moment, I don't know that he'd be the right fit for the team at the moment. But thanks for saying nice things about my work.

Lance J. M. wants to see guest-stars galore. Can you pull out your magic wand and grant his wishes?
1) Are we going to see John Maddox a lot in this story arc? He's my favorite dupe (with Qui Chang being a close second).


I try to be judicious with my use of John. Ultimately, he's just trying to lead a normal life, and there's only so many ways I can work him into a story without it seeming contrived. But when the circumstances are right, sure.

2) Could you give us a clue as to some of the future clients X-Factor will be servicing later in the year? Anyone noteworthy?

Why yes. Yes, I could. But I'm not sure that I'm supposed to, so I'm playing it safe.

X-POSITION regular Joshua Hetherington sent in a long list of requests and queries. Let's see what you think of these apples...
1) Any chance on using Jubilee or Husk soon to visit Monet? I'd love to see a mini-Generation X reunion! With all the Necrosha insanity (i.e. Synch and Skin being revived), it may be a good time for them to meet and talk.


Kind of depends upon what they're up to elsewhere. I wouldn't be opposed to it.

2) Will we learn any revelations about Longshot and Shatterstar's similar backstories anytime soon?

Yes. I'm not entirely sure I want to get involved in the whole Benjamin Russell thing, but yeah, I have some thoughts as to how, or if, they're related.

3) Will Wolfsbane be returning any time soon? I think the idea of a Rictor/Shatterstar/Wolfsbane love triangle could be fun...

I agree.

4) Will we ever learn the fate of X-Cell? Callisto and Marrow must still be in that sewer somewhere...

I'm thinking they're going to surface somewhere around issue #210.

5) With all the relationship drama on the team lately, is there any chance of M finally landing herself a boyfriend? I mean, Darwin clearly likes her (even if she clearly has a leaning toward Longshot).

Oh, I have some very unexpected developments coming up with Monet's love life. We're laying the trackwork for that beginning with #203.

6) What will the X-Factor side-story bring to the overall "X-Men: Second Coming" event? Are you disappointed or relieved that the team isn't part of the crossover in a more direct fashion?

Ultimately, we tie in to stories when it makes creative sense. I mean, yeah, the sales bump is always appreciated. But first and foremost, it has to be organic to the series. And since there is an across-the-board concerted effort to try and finish off all the remaining mutants, it would in fact seem to defy credulity that someone hasn't targeted X-Factor. So that's the direction in which we're going. And fortunately it actually dovetails with several other storylines. Our crew has been fairly splintered, and nothing quite brings people together like someone trying to kill them.

On that cheery note, I'll bring out this week's "Behind the X" question. As every person enjoys treating themselves occasionally, what is the most self-indulgent thing you've ever bought yourself?

When you bowl an 800 series (three games in league totaling more than 800 pins) you get a ring from the United States Bowling Congress. The ring is free. But if you spend a stupid amount of money, you can get a big, fancy gold ring instead. I went for that. That's pretty self-indulgent.

X-Factor é um dos títulos mais bem vistos dentro do universo mutante, embora isso não seja representativo em vendas. Atualmente, o grupo retornou a Nova Iorque e está envolvido em um arco com o Quarteto Fantástico.

Apesar de a equipe ter muitos membros, o autor Peter David não vai abrir mão de nenhum membro. Ele vê como um benefício poder utilizar diversos personagens, sempre escolhendo os que mais se encaixam para cada missão. Alguém que os fãs querem na equipe é Mercúrio, mas, no momento, o filho de Magneto está com os Vingadores e a sua relação com o X-Factor está muito abalada para que ele volte.

As recentes edições vêm mostrando uma sequência de momentos eletrizantes e surpreendentes, como a volta de Shatterstar ou a Rebelião Summers. Com a volta para Nova Iorque, muitos novos clientes – famosos - surgirão agora em 2010 e o primeiro deles é Valéria Richards.

A sexualidade de Shatterstar está dando bastante polêmica, desde que ele beijou Rictor na boca em X-Factor #45. Contudo, recentemente, no especial X-Factor: Nation X, ele beija Dinamite. Peter David afirma que o mutante assim o fez porque a considerou atraente. Até hoje, ele teve uma limitada experiência acerca de interação social e agora quer aprender o quanto puder – está maravilhado com o mundo, assim como uma criança rodeada de balas em uma doceria sem saber o que fazer.

O autor disse que não haverá em um futuro próximo alguma cena em que Rictor se propõe a discutir a relação com Shattie. Além do mais, Shatterstar deseja que Julio explora a sexualidade junto com ele, o que Rictor não parece estar disposto a fazer.

(E David não quis polemizar colocando o Homem-de-Gelo em cena correspondendo a um possível interesse – cada leitor pode entender como quiser).
Ainda no especial ligado à Nation X, Longshot ficou para trás em Utopia, mas ele voltou por conta própria para Nova Iorque. Ele e Cristal não reataram seu relacionamento, mas tiveram um flashback, algo comum para ex-casais.

Uma questão que sempre volta envolve Layla: ela é ou não uma mutante? O próprio autor acha que isso é algo que vem e vai literalmente, e não sem propósito: teremos respostas para essas questões quando for apropriado.

Um intrigante personagem que vem conquistando muitos fãs é uma das cópias de Madrox, John Maddox, o qual, mesmo querendo se esquivar e levar uma vida normal, acaba sendo envolvido nas aventuras do grupo. David vai usá-lo sempre que as circunstâncias forem propícias.

Quem também pode aparecer de repente são Jubileu e Escalpo, que tem muito o que conversar com Monet, ainda mais depois que alguns de seus ex-colegas de Geração X deram as caras em Necrosha. Os fãs podem torcer também pela volta de Lupina, como um incremento à relação de Rictor e Shatterstar. Voltas confirmadas mesmo são de Medula e Callisto, por volta da edição 210.

A longa história de Longshot e Shatterstar também será explorada em breve. David não tem certeza se isso envolverá toda aquela história de Benjamin Russell, mas ele tem ideias novas para explorar.

Monet também finalmente poderá ter um namorado. O desenrolar dessa história começa na edição 203.

Finalmente, a relação de X-Factor com Second Coming não é algo estritamente comercial, para alavancar as vendas. Os tie-ins só existem porque há histórias para serem contadas.

Ainda mais se os mutantes estão em perigo, é inconcebível que alguém não esteja atrás de caçar o X-Factor. Essa é a direção do tie-in e, felizmente, está ligada aos diversos outros plots do evento, pois nada é mais forte para unir os mutantes do que uma grande ameaça.

X-Position com Way e Liu:

Spoiler:


Aspbros wrote in about his favorite merc with a mouth and wants to know what his thought process is in his desire to join the X-Men.
I love what’s going on with Deadpool. The bit with the chicken ruled! A few questions though:
1) I’m a bit confused. Why does he feel it’s essential he join the X-Men? Is he looking for a family or a job?


DANIEL WAY: Neither. What Deadpool is looking for is a quest; a journey that will take him to a new and different level. He’s taken the gun-for-hire path as far and as high as it will go, and it’s taught him that, for him, the thrill is in the “getting,” not the “having” of anything. Convincing the Marvel U that he is a hero seems impossible, right? Well, that’s why he’s doing it.

2) How is he confused that X-Men don’t kill. He’s got to know that would be part of the X-deal, wouldn’t he?

WAY: Not when he’s seen guys like Wolverine gut people from spit to spleen.

3) Why wouldn’t Cyclops want to recruit Deadpool for X-Force? Even with his instability, he’d make a good asset…

WAY: X-Force specializes in controlled, low-profile ops. Deadpool is neither controlled nor low-profile.

4) Whose craziness is more dangerous – Norman Osborn’s or Deadpool’s? Why do you think so and what’s the difference between the two?

WAY: Deadpool seeks chaos; Osborn seeks control. Both of them are willing to go to any lengths to achieve their goals. Which is more dangerous? Couldn’t say.

Speaking of dangerous, Marius665 is wondering about a clawed individual that we haven’t seen for quite some time…
My question is for Daniel Way – during your run on “Wolverine: Origins” was there ever any plans to explain who/what the Native was? She was introduced some time ago, and all we know about her is that she has bone claws similar to Logan’s and was in the Weapon X Program when Logan broke out. I don’t believe you ever referenced this character (unless I missed it)…


WAY: I considered it, but ultimately jettisoned the idea because, once I brought in the Native, I’d be on the hook for addressing all of the Weapon X characters…and there are just too many.

Sami Dawed has some praise and a question about a possible relationship in the offing…
I'd like to say thanks for sticking with this “Dark Wolverine.” I've loved every single issue so far, and I wanted to know if Daken's relationship with Moonstone be explored more?


MARJORIE LIU: Not in the immediate future – as in, no – though I don't think it can be ruled out entirely. Small world, right?

Daken and Moonstone sitting in tree, K-I-L-L-I-N-G. Ick.
Moving on, Providence has queries for each of our guests:
1) First of all, I'm loving “Wolverine: Origins.” Now that the series is almost coming to an end, did you have the ending planned out beforehand? And how much has it changed since variables like Skaar couldn't have been planned out from the very beginning?


WAY: I’ve always known how the series would end, but I can tell you that one particular element – and a key one, at that – has changed since I originally outlined the series.

2) Marjorie, as you're writing “Dark Wolverine” and the “X-23” one-shot, are there any plans for these 2 characters to have more interaction beyond what little they had in “Utopia?”

LIU: I'm sure it's likely, though I think it's also safe to say that we don't want to simply throw them together simply for the sake of having them on the same page. There has to be the right story. And I'm convinced that, eventually, we'll find a good moment and a compelling reason for the two of them to be together in the same book.

While two is good, Chickrockguitar believes three is better…
I have a question for Marjorie Liu – many of us are excited for your “X-23” one-shot. It's not even out yet, and many fans are desperate to know if there will be anymore X-23 from you after this issue? How about some X-23 in “Wolverine”? She's family to both Logan and Daken. It's about time there was a trio team-up!


LIU: Again, no plans in the immediate future for X-23 to join Logan and Daken in the pages of “Dark Wolverine.” And let's wait for the “X-23” one-shot to come out first, right?

Thinking about the one-shot, JB sees sparks…or is that merely one of the characters we can expect to find in “X-23?”
Jubilee decided not to visit Utopia in “Nation X” #2. Instead, she left a message for Wolverine: "Dear Logan: Wish you were here." It has been mentioned that she will show up in the “X-23” one-shot and also a short story by Marjorie. What capacity will Jubilee be used, and are there any other (possibly long-term) plans to use her alongside Wolverine, Laura, or Daken from either one of you?


LIU: I can't speak for Dan, but I love the character of Jubilee. I mean, really, she's one of my favorites. So yes, I leapt at the chance to write her in both the “X-23” one-shot and the short story that's coming out as part of the Women of Marvel initiative.
In the one-shot, Jubilee's role won't be huge, but it will be vital in explaining why X-23 and Wolverine are in New York. You'll also get to see her interacting with X-23, which was a kick to write. The short story, on the other hand, is loosely connected to the one-shot – sort of a "between the pages" look at Wolverine and Jubilee together. As for long term plans? None at the moment, but never say never.

Andre4000 has several questions about the upcoming one-shot. I have a feeling this is going to be a popular issue with our readers…
I’m very excited about the “X-23” one-shot that’s going to be written by Marjorie, and I have a bunch of questions:
1) What is this one-shot about? Is it a story from her past? Or does it deal with everything presently going on with the character?


LIU: First of all, thanks! The one-shot is about Laura finding her footing in the world. She's been seen as a very physical character in the past – all action – and that'll be true here too, but I go deeper into her head, exploring the circles of abuse she's often found herself in and why it is that, despite all her power and strength, she still allows herself to be controlled by men. So it's not really a story about her past, though the past is referred to. Instead, it's more of a commentary on the present and future of the character.

2) How did this one-shot come up? Did you express a desire to write this character? Or were you approached?

LIU: This came up, actually, while I was still working on “NYX.” My then-editor, John Barber, asked if I'd be interested in tackling X-23 for one issue. I said “sure,” and away we went! But then it all sort of fell to the wayside until late 2009, at which point I dusted off the script and polished it up.

3) What do you like best about X-23? What makes her interesting to write as a character?

LIU: I don't even know where to start. Do I talk about her abuse, both sexual and physical? Do I discuss her use as a killing machine? Do I point out that she's never really had a chance to be a kid, because every time she finds herself in a situation where that might be possible, she's taken away from it? This is a teenage girl who was raised in a lab, made to be a weapon (basically, brainwashed) and yet, she overcame her conditioning to become someone who wants to live a better life – a girl who wants to do better. There's so much to explore in her character.

4) The NYX version of the character (including her stint as a prostitute) always seemed inconsistent with the present version of X-23. Do you plan on reconciling the two?

LIU: I try, yes.

Wrapping things up today, Andrew has a theory. I think it’s a fairly solid one, but let’s see what you have to say…
For my part, I was absolutely 100% convinced that Romulus was, in actuality, Dog from the “Origin” miniseries. All the signs were there:
--Dog is Wolverine's half-brother and may well have his healing and long life.
--Romulus has been a part of Wolverine's life as far back as Wolverine can remember.
--Romulus was responsible for the deaths of some of Wolvie's true loves – just as Wolvie was responsible for the death of Dog's unrequited true love, Rose.
--Dog has not been seen in normal Marvel U continuity (to my knowledge) since “Origin,” so there's no retconning needed.
--And the biggest sign for me is that Romulus' body was shown but never his face – presumably because it would be a face that readers would recognize (a face with crossed with three parallel scars would be a good hint to his identity).
So needless to say, when the reveal was made and there were no scars to be found I was quite surprised. So, I have to know, have I spent a couple years believing a completely false theory? If Romulus is not Dog, is there any hope of seeing Dog re-introduced to regular Marvel U continuity? He's Wolverine's half-brother for crying out loud…


WAY: Sorry, but Romulus was never going to be Dog. Will Dog show up again? I can almost guarantee it.

Sounds promising. I hope you take some consolation in that answer, Andrew.
And now it’s time for this week’s “Behind the X” question, where we get to know our X-writers on a more personal level. If the two of you wouldn’t mind, could you please tell us what the worst job you’ve ever had was and why?


LIU: I don't mind hard work, so I really can't complain about any job I've ever had. It's a paycheck, right?

WAY: When I was fourteen, I used to clean up the cutting tables and troughs at a small slaughterhouse. Before school and after, I’d go through the place with a high-pressure hose and a bottle of bleach. One day, the owner and his son were out back, standing next to a steer that was (I guess) really sick. There was a little kid (the owner’s grandson, I believe) riding around on his tricycle.
I’m standing there, waiting to get paid while the owner and son talk. Suddenly, the owner’s son reaches into his truck, pulls out a shotgun, puts it in the steer’s ear and pulls the trigger. The steer collapsed, blood running out of every orifice in its huge body. The little kid tried running over the steer’s head with his tricycle – he couldn’t pull it off. So he rode away, leaving three narrow trails of blood in his wake. I got my forty bucks and never went back.

Eles falaram sobre cada personagem que escrevem:

Deadpool

Deadpool não tentou se juntar ao X-Men para conseguir uma família ou um emprego. O que ele busca, na verdade, é viver intensamente a jornada, e não ter um objetivo final definido. Sua ambição agora é mostrar que pode ser um herói. Que tipo de herói? Bom, se alguém disser que os X-Men não matam, fica difícil parao Wade acreditar, pois o Wolverine está por aí estripando as pessoas.

Com esse perfil mais adequado à X-Force, Deadpool poderia ser um candidate à equipe. Contudo, como as missões exigem controle e discrição, ele não seria uma boa aquisição.

Todo esse perigo e essa loucura nos fazem comparar Deadpool com Osborn. Way acredita que, diferentemente de Osborn, que procura o controla, Wade está atrás do caos. Mesmo assim, ambos fazem de tudo para atingir seus objetivos.

Origins

Mais uma vez, perguntaram sobre a personagem Nativa. Way não a utilizou, pois, se tivesse que usá-la, precisia explorar também todos os personagens da Arma X, que são muitos.

Quanto ao final da série, o autor sempre soube como ela terminaria, mas um elemento em particular (que ele não revelou) mudou em relação ao que ele havia planejado inicialmente.

Dark Wolverine

Não há previsões para que o relacionamento entre Rocha Lunar e Daken seja explorado, mas isso não pode ser descartado.

X-23

É provável que Daken e X-23 interajam novamente, mas não sera de forma gratuita. É necessário que haja um contexto apropriado e Liu acredita que aparecerá um bom momento para essa história. Contudo, não há planos imediatos para que Laura dê as caras no título.

O one-shot de Laura explorará mais o psicológico da personagem, como toda a questão dos abusos que ela sofreu e os motivos pelos quais ela ainda se permite ser controlada por homens. Não é uma história sobre o passado dela, mas dos impactos do passado em sua vida.

Liu não sabe qual é o principal motivo por fazer X-23 ser uma personagem tão interessante de escrever: se são os abusos que ela sofreu, seu potencial de ser usada como uma máquina mortífera, de seu infância roubada... há muito o que se explorar nela.

A autora também pretende reconciliar as personalidades de Laura em NYX e em suas outras participações no universo-X.

Jubileu

A personagem terá uma aparição na edição especial da X-23 – e será vital para explicar por que Laura e Logan vão para NYC - e Liu também escreverá uma história curta da personagem como parte da iniciativa da Marvel para as mulheres, onde ela interagirá com Wolverine. Todavia, não há planos de longo prazo para que ela continue escrevendo a personagem.

Romulus X Cão

Um dos leitores sugeriu que o Romulus e o Cão poderiam ser a mesma pessoa, por vários motivos: já que ambos fazem parte do passado de Logan e ele não se recorda; Cão pode ter, como meio-irmão de Wolverine, seu fator de cura que concede longevidade; Romulus é o responsável pela morte de várias mulheres na vida de Logan, assim como este estava envolvido no amor da vida do Cão, Rose; não seria retcon se Cão voltasse agora, pois ele só apareceu anteriormente em Origem; como Romulus nunca mostra sua face, poderia ser uma estratégia para reconhecermos Cão no futuro – com o rosto marcado pelas três cicratizes das garras de Logan).

Way disse que Romulus não é Cão, mas que pode quase garantir que Cão aparecerá de novo.

Entrevista com Jim McCann, que fará um one-shot da Cristal em maio:

Spoiler:

CBR News: Jim, it's no secret that you're a big fan of Dazzler. That being said, I understand that this project came about when editor Mike Horwitz approached you to write a "Dazzler" one shot and your initial answer was, "Let me think about it?"

Jim McCann: I think Dazzler is a character that can be relevant and powerful and popular, but I didn't want to write her for the sake of saying "I wrote Dazzler! Yeah!" I wanted to wait until I actually had a story. I thought about it for a while, and it hit me that there were two things I wanted to do with this if I were to take the gig:

1) Address the "image" problem and stigma Dazzler has. She is seen as a joke or a throw-away character now, but that wasn't the case at all back in the day. She turned down the X-Men. twice.

2) I wanted to give her two things that she was missing that I think every character needs to be fully rounded: a villain and a family/loved one. The story that came to mind fit both of those, so I agreed.

The first aspect is addressed directly to the reader through Alison's thoughts and her actions, and it's done in a way that is sometimes blatant. Then, other times, there are revelations that she makes along with the reader.

The second, I realized could be accomplished in one person: Lois London, her sister who was also a mutant. So I wrote the first draft of this one-shot and we sent it over to the X-Office guys to make sure I wasn't conflicting with anything they had planned for Dazzler and got back a note that I never imagined. It turned out I wasn't the only person looking at bring back Lois London! Craig Kyle and Chris Yost had added her to Selene's group for the (then upcoming) "Necrosha" event! What are the odds that three writers, working on two different projects would want to bring back 1 character who appeared in only five issues over 25 years ago?! Do that math!

So Craig and Chris got my script, since Lois (now named Mortis- which fit her perfectly - hats off to those guys!) was needed in the event, and we had a pow-wow at Wizard World Chicago. Since anything could- and will- happen in "Necrosha," Mortis' survival at the time was not guaranteed. I gave them my best puppy dog eyes and they agreed to let her live. (They are awesome guys who I love dearly. I probably didn't need the puppy dog eyes, just the extra cash I stuffed in their suitcases as hush money) We then compared back-stories for Lois (I had written a back-up feature for the one shot and they had written one for "Necrosha the Gathering") and the similarities were amazing.

We were all on the same page as to what she'd been through and where she was now.

So , they wrote all of the Necrosha scripts over the next few months and I tabled the one-shot because we all thought it would be best for this to come after. That way, these two sisters could deal with the fall-out and face off in the aftermath of Lois' actions. I retooled my one shot to be a "Necrosha" aftermath book and it made for a much more powerful story. I owe Chris and Craig a ton for that, so thanks guys!

Dazzler isn't one of Marvel's big name characters, but she does seem to be an iconic character to you and the other members of her vocal and devoted fanbase. What is it about Dazzler that makes her fans love her so much?

Well, she has an incredibly iconic (if dated) look with the disco thing, and that is both a blessing and a curse. But I think the real reason is it's the fact that she represents someone that is very relatable. She struggles in her career, her self-image, her love life, her place in the world, and the persecution that she's gone through at other people's hands just for being who she is. That's a huge part. She is the mutant metaphor that translates to a lot of different minorities.

All of that was addressed in her solo series- we got to see her day-to-day life, which was unusual for a lot of spandex characters (especially when that came with roller skates and disco balls). That "slice of life" aspect she brought to comics continued to be a part of the character through the 80s. She was sort of lost in the late 90s and much of the 2000s, but I think we're starting to see more of that Alison a little more now.

She's strong willed, and that was shown from the first appearance. She turned down membership in the X-Men twice. It was that second time that made me fall completely in love with the character, in "Dazzler" #38. She kicks Wolverine and Colossus' asses in a real-world training session and then basically says, "Ok, thanks guys! I'm ready to take on the world again. On my own. Call ya if I need help." That's my girl.

The Dazzler one-shot's main villain, Alison's sister Lois London, returned as Mortis during "Necrosha"

Another seemingly misunderstood aspect about Dazzler is her mutant power, which has been interpreted and presented a number of different ways during the course of the character's life. In your mind, what exactly is Dazzler's mutant ability and how powerful is it?

Simply put, she absorbs sound and transforms it into light. That can take the form of lasers, solid holograms, light bursts, all sorts of ways. I also did a lot of research into the aspects of light and the ways that can be harnessed and used in preparing for this to add to her power set in one or two ways, so you'll see some new things pop up that should be exciting.

As you mentioned, this takes place in the aftermath of the current "Necrosha" storyline. How much story time has passed and what's on Dazzler's mind when the one-shot begins?

This happens just a few weeks after "Necrosha." I can't say a lot because that event is still going on (And you should all be reading it!!!). But the fact that she finally was reunited with her sister again only to find Lois is a villain known as Mortis, killing Dazzler's friends - that's enough to mess anyone up. She's at a loss of what to do and that is also manifesting itself in her own life, so you could say she's at the biggest crossroads she's ever faced.

Obviously, Mortis plays a huge role in your story. What you do find most interesting about the character and what makes her a compelling foil for Dazzler?

She is a fascinating character because she is the perfect foil for Dazzler - not just in powers, but in the way Lois sees the world. They are sisters, but they grew up apart. The experiences they have had have led them down two radically different paths. Added to that is the fact that they are both mutants and the way they deal with it psychologically - I couldn't have asked for a better enemy/sister for Dazzler!

What can you tell us about the plot and themes of this one-shot?

The plot is simple: survival and what we have to do to achieve that. And I mean that mentally, physically and emotionally. And how two people can show you two different sides of the coin. There is a strong theme of acceptance and rejection that runs through this as well.
And lasers. Lots of lasers.

Is there anything else you can tell us about the supporting cast of your story? Is this mainly a tale of Dazzler vs. Mortis, or are there other important supporting players as well?

There are some very important supporting players. In addition to some X-Men, we will see some huge names in this. Mortis has her own gang now that she's running with, and they include a lot of people that Dazzler faced in her solo series. Maybe you've heard of a few of them: Dr. Doom. Enchantress. And Rogue?! There are a few others, but I don't want to ruin the surprises. Let's just say that this story makes Dazzler look back at her early days in her solo series and realize "What the $^&*#$ was I thinking taking on these people alone?!"

Dazzler's face paint is still in style after all these years.

Dazzler is a character that has quite a bit of camp elements attached to her, like her original disco inspired costume. Throughout her history, though, she's also experienced some pretty serious and emotional things. So how would you describe the tone of your "Dazzler" one-shot?

I address the campiness right away through Dazzler herself. She acknowledges it. But once you peel away that layer of blue face-paint and skin-tight silver jumpsuit, you are left with someone who has gone through hell, and she needs to realize that and embrace the strength that comes with it if she's going to survive. That's something Lois could learn from as well, but I don't know if she's ready to...yet.

You're working with artist Kalman Andrasofszky on this one-shot. What's it like working with him? What do you feel he brings to this book as an artist?

Aside from sheer awesomeness?! More awesome. I loved his work on "NYX," so I was thrilled when I found out we were working together on this. There are specific things I wrote in just for him because I feel there's an energy and composition that Kalman can bring to a page that fit this book and these characters perfectly.

Seriously, look at that cover and you'll realize Kalman understands Dazzler. There are a lot of layers in that one image alone and when you see what he brings to the table for the story, you'll be blown away! Also, added to the eerie similarity factor, Kalman was asked to draw the Mortis story for "Necrosha the Gathering" before he stared working on this! It was meant to be!!

As I mentioned above it's no secret that you're a huge Dazzler fan. So if this one-shot does well would you be game to tell more stories featuring Alison Blaire? Do you have ideas where you'd like to take her next?

Dear God, yes. Next year is the 30th anniversary of her ongoing (this year is the 30th anniversary of her first appearance. You look great, Ali!!), and I would love to do more with her, if they'll let me. Again, I don't want to write her because I'm "that Dazzler guy," I want to write a story that fits the character and adds to her, moving her forward. I have one in mind and will hopefully be bringing that to the table soon. So, we'll see!

In the meantime, the best way to help more Dazzler appearances is to buy this book. Seriously. People point out that her solo series was rather successful, and it was at the time. Today, Dazzler fans are vocal, now let's see them on the march to prove that she deserves a spot on the shelves in today's market. In the words of Dazzler herself, "Go for it!"

Any final thoughts that you would like to share about your "Dazzler" one-shot?

Aside from me thanking everyone involved in this, from Mike Horwitz to Jeanine Schaefer, Craig Kyle, Chris Yost, David Gabriel, Kalman, I want to thank the writers who have come before, who gave Dazzler such a rich history to mine from. I feel like I've just scratched the surface, but if this was my one chance at writing her, I certainly had a blast doing it. I hope the fans feel the same when reading!

Em 1980, mais especificamente na edição Uncanny X- Men#130, a personagem Alison Blaire, a Cristal, literalmente estreou. A cantora mutante ganhou um título próprio depois, entre 1981 e 1985, em que o leitor pôde conhecer também o lado não-super-heróico de Cristal. Ao fim da série, ela entrou para os X-Men e permaneceu no time por vários anos. Em 2005, ela se mudou para Inglaterra e fez parte do Novo Excalibur. Blaire mora agora em São Francisco e novamente é parte dos X-Men.

Agora em maio, a personagem ganhará um one-shot, por Jim McCann e Kalman Andrasofszky (que desenhou a história de Lois London em Necrosha: The Gathering). McCann é um grande fã da personagem, pois a considera muito poderosa e popular. Ao escrever o one-shot, ele incluiu dois elementos cruciais, no seu entender, para a história da personagem: explorar o estigma que a Cristal traz com ela, mostrando a verdadeira personagem que é e não apenas uma coadjuvante que atualmente virou motivo de piada, e integrar à história vilões e uma família. O primeiro elemento aparece no one-shot pelos pensamentos e ações de Alison. O segundo está concentrado em Lois London, codinome Mortis, sua irmã, que também é mutante e faz parte do Círculo Interno de Selene, em Necrosha.

Quando McCann teve a ideia, ele verificou com os editores se o que estava fazendo não contradiria algum outro plot. O autor ficou surpreso ao saber que Kyle & Yost planejavam usar Lois em Necrosha. Por isso, ficou decidido que esse one-shot traria as personagens depois do evento. Tanto Cristal quanto sua irmã precisariam lidar com o que Lois fez durante Necrosha.

McCann considera que o maior trunfo da popularidade de Cristal com os fãs é que ela é um personagem com quem o público pode se identificar de verdade. Ela tem uma carreira, mas também tem um dia-a-dia e sofre grande perseguição por seu mutante.

O seu poder é absorver som e transformá-lo em luz, na forma de lasers, hologramas sólidos, etc. O autor pesquisou bastante sobre a luz, de modo a tentar apresentar alguma forma nova de manifestação do poder dela.

O one-shot começa poucas semanas depois do final de Necrosha. O fato é que Cristal voltou a encontrar sua irmã muitos anos depois da última vez que se viram, mas Lois, como Mortis, é uma vilã, que esteve matando os amigos de Alison em Necrosha. McCann acredita que Lois é o completo oposto de Cristal, tanto em relação aos poderes, quanto na maneira de ver o mundo, por causa das experiências vividas por cada uma. Não haveria vilã melhor.

O plot do one-shot é a sobrevivência e o que deve ser feito para consegui-la, mental, física e emocionalmente. Alguns X-Men aparecerão na história, bem como outros personagens de peso. Mortis tem um grupo próprio, que inclui muita gente que já confrontou Cristal na série própria dela, como Encantor, e aparições de Destino.

No próximo ano, completa-se o aniversário de 30 anos da primeira série dela, e McCann quer poder escrever mais sobre ela, desenvolver melhor a personagem, porque ele acredita que tem muita história para ser contada ainda. De acordo com o autor, a melhor forma de garantir que Cristal tenha a devida atenção é o sucesso nas vendas desse especial.

X-Position com os editores Nick Lowe e Jeanine Schaefer:

Spoiler:


Mauro Di Cosmo is sad to say "goodbye," yet excited about what comes next. What can you reveal to this landlubber?
1) "Cable" sells fairly well, so why cancel it after twenty-five issues? Does the X-office think he can't carry a solo title? Also, why is he playing second fiddle to Deadpool in his last issue?
2) Did the changes made to the X-line of books after "Messiah CompleX" meet your expectations? Will there be new changes to the line-up of X-books after "Second Coming?"


Nick Lowe: Mauro! First of all, Cable's not playing second fiddle to Deadpool in "Cable" #25. It's more of a "Dueling Fiddles" kind of book. Deadpool is just way more outgoing (he's the fiddle playing Daryl Hall to Cable's John Oates in this issue), so he makes Cable seem like he doesn't say as much. It's like that friend of yours with a significant other that just won't shut up (or that friend who is Nick Lowe).
As for the "Cable" series and why it had to end, we loved it too, but as of "Second Coming," the book served its purpose. We didn't want to keep it going for the sake of keeping it going. And when you see how "Second Coming" ends, you'll see that Cable has his hands full elsewhere.
The reshaping of the X-Books after "Messiah CompleX" did meet our expectations, for the most part. We thought that each book had more of a definable mission statement than they had previously, and most of the books found their feet. Some worked better than others: for example, "X-Force" was a runaway success, but "Young X-Men" didn't find its audience (even though Marc and Yanick and the rest of the awesome creators tried their damnedest). That's how things go. Some work awesomely, some don't click.
And to answer your question about the X-Books post-"Second Coming," there will definitely be some huge shakeups, but they will come more with what the books are about than creators coming or going.
Wow! That is a lot of talking. Sorry, everybody.

Jeanine Schaefer: No, you're not.

Don't worry, talking is good – especially when you're paid by the word!
Blackcyclops is next, and he wants to know about leaders and followers in the X-verse...
1) How do you guys see Cyclops, Xavier, and Magneto right now? Many people feel like Xavier and Magneto have regressed from "X-Men: Legacy" to their appearances in "Uncanny X-Men" and that they're acting "out of character."
2) Why do you believe that so many of the X-Men are following Cyclops? You would think more than just Beast would speak out against what he has done...


Lowe: Hi Blackcyclops. The way we see it, Cyclops is the general. He makes the calls. Magneto? We're still finding out what role he's going to play, but it's going to be a big one. With Professor X, he's having trouble finding his place with the X-Men. It's hard to go back to someplace that was "yours" and not be in charge. Sometimes you revert and, frankly, don't know why. It's not always a conscious choice.
And to answer your second question, as to why the X-Men are following Cyclops, I think it's because he's doing a good job. Has he been a perfect leader? No, but who is? But he's weathered some amazingly difficult situations and gotten most of the mutants out alive. He's made tough decisions and lived with them. And I think most of the X-Men realize this and think that it's better than they could have done.
And thanks for asking that question, Blackcyclops. Those are the questions we love to think about and talk about, more than the questions that just lobby for favorite characters that are currently off the books or ask questions that the answer can only result in spoilers...and thus, will never be answered.

Lance J. M. must have been listening to lots of David Bowie recently, because all he can think about is ch-ch-ch-changes...
Is "Necrosha" one of those storylines that actually ends up changing a lot of things? Also, is the fact that "Necrosha" ends when "Second Coming" begins just a coincidence? Or does one lead into the other? [b/]

[b]Lowe:
Wouldn't you like to know, Lance?!? What's that? You would like to know? That's why you asked? Well, in that case, "Necrosha" is definitely one of those storylines that ends up changing things. It has huge ramifications, especially for X-Force, but also for the X-Men at large. We won't feel all of these immediately, but you will certainly feel them.
As for whether "Necrosha" leads to "Second Coming" – not in an explicit way. Elements of "Necrosha" certainly impact "Second Coming," but you don't have to have read "Necrosha" to understand "Second Coming."

Schaefer: But you should, because it's awesome.

...and reading awesome books is half the battle! Joshua Hetherington sent in his usual laundry list of excellent questions...which I then butchered and narrowed to the following:
1) So far, the anticipated death total for "Second Coming" seems to be around three. Please tell me not many more X-Men are going the way of the dinosaur?
2) Any word on who's taking over "X-Force" writing duties following Craig Kyle and Chris Yost's departure? And can you give us any hints if we'll see Kyle and Yost around the X-Universe post-"Second Coming?"
3) Is Bishop going to appear in "Second Coming?"
4) I felt as if Marvel lied to me in a recent solicitation. On the cover of "Nation X" #2, Jubilee was seen in a sort of new-styled retro costume with glowing hand, and the solicitation for the book stated that she was returning to the X-Men. In the story though, she didn't return to the X-Men. All she did was talk to a bunch of students. She never even got to see the X-Men on panel. Can you tell me anything that will make me feel better about this cheat?


Lowe: Holy cow, that's a lot of questions, Joshua. We'll do these one at a time:
1) How many X-Men die in "Second Coming?" You aren't going to like this answer – at least one. See? You don't like that answer.
2) Who's writing "X-Force" after "Second Coming?" I'll tell you that it's not Joyce Carol Oates or Alfred Lord Tennyson. We love Craig and Chris up here at Marvel. Craig's super-busy producing the "Thor" movie and Chris isn't going anywhere, though his schedule gets tough working around his animation work. But you'll definitely be seeing him around.
3) Bishop? In "Second Coming?" No comment!
4) Josh, I'm sorry you were disappointed. Would you rather we spell everything out completely for you in solicits? So that no story can surprise you? We were really proud of that story and the emotional journey Jubilee is going on. Don't worry, we aren't done torturing Jubilee or you yet.

Well if you're done torturing Josh, how about keelhauling Robbie Herring? There are a few characters that his heart is aching for...
1) Will Aurora be popping up in any of the X-Men books in the near future?
2) When will the "Space X-Men" be coming home? It would be interesting to see what Havok thinks of how Scott has handled things. Also, it would be nice to have Lorna and Magneto to interact. I am sure they have loads to talk about.


Lowe: Hi Robbie! Aurora isn't going to be playing any major role in the X-books in the next few months. And the characters out in space? We just talked about them with a creator last week. They haven't been forgotten, we just want to make sure that they have a great story to come back with.

Madroxdupe420 has been thinking about a great story, and is wondering if he might see an end to it soon:
1) Back when "Phoenix: Endsong" came out, there as a rumor that it was a trilogy. Is it safe to say that "Second Coming" is both a trilogy to the "Messiah" storyline as well as the "Phoenix End/WarSong?"
2) Any plans for Emma's surviving siblings (Cordelia and the brother)?


Lowe: Madroxdupe420, don't believe every rumor you hear. Why would you think "Second Coming" has anything to do with the Phoenix? As for Emma's surviving siblings, they make a brief appearance in the upcoming "X-Men Origins : Emma Frost" one-shot, but not beyond there for the time being.

Two fans – Iceman06 & Ragna "D" BloodEdge – sent in similar questions, so I'm doubling up here. Double the pleasure, double the fun!
1) How will the new Heroic Age impact what happens in the X-titles?
2) Does the fact that Beast is wearing his X-Men uniform in the promotional art for the "Heroic Age" indicate he's set to return to the X-Men soon?


Lowe: The Heroic Age will definitely impact the X-titles, starting with "Uncanny X-Men" #526 and then expanding out from there. And you haven't seen the last of Hank McCoy and the X-Men!

Zachary Simon is a fan who knows the X-Men's journey is concluding soon, but he's a bit curious about the latitude and longitude of their final destination?
1) I know that the status quo will change after "Second Coming" and the X-books will be thrown in an entirely new direction. Is there a chance that a few of the X-teams will branch out and head back to San Francisco? Might some even move back to New York?
2) Now that the SWORD series is ending, are there plans for any of those characters to pop their heads into the X-Universe on earth?
3) Is "Wolverine: Origins" truly ending? Or will it morph into something else?


Lowe: If any X-Men make it out of "Second Coming" alive, they might get back to San Fran or New York...if just to go to the fine hospitals in both cities.
Let's all take a moment to mourn "S.W.O.R.D." and its ending. No one loved that book more than me. (For real – don't say you love it more because you're wrong and I will fight you in as manly a way as I can muster!)
If you think I'm going to let Brand and Lockheed out of my sight, you're out of your mind.

Schaefer: I'll step in to answer #3, while Nick takes a moment more to mourn. Yes, "Wolverine: Origins" is gearing up to its conclusion, which Dan Way has meticulously plotted out. Dan and Doug Braithwaite are setting up the final pieces right now, and we'll see them all knocked down one by one until there's only one man left standing.

Faded graces us with her presence and shares a few final ponderings to help close out today's X-POSITION:
1) Other than Cypher, can we expect any of the "Necrosha" resurrections to stick following the conclusion of this "X-Force" crossover?
2) What X-characters do you think the internet will go crazy over in 2010?


Lowe: Faded! My old friend! Doug Ramsey is not the only resurrected character who's sticking around after "Necrosha!"
And the X-characters to watch in 2010 are: Aurora! Havok! Polaris! Marvel Girl! Jubilee! Wait!
Those were the ones I was telling you weren't going to be big. Crap! Here's the real list! Hope Summers! Magneto! Dani Moonstar! Shatterstar! Fantomex! Jubilee! (Wait, which is true!?!?) and Detective Love (from "Daredevil" #43-44)!

That Nick – such a tease! I bet he gets all the good Valentines this Sunday!
Now, it's my turn for this week's "Behind the X" fun, where we ask a question of our guests that isn't X-related. So, Nick and Jeanine, if you couldn't work in comics, what kind of job do you imagine you'd have?


Lowe: I would be a subway busker, just to make all my NYC friends happy and everyone else on the train miserable!

Schaefer: I'd want to work at the Food Network . I have no idea if I have any applicable skills besides liking food, but I figure that's a pretty good start.

Desde Messiah Complex, todos os x-fãs estão aguardando pela conclusão da trilogia da Messias. Com Second Coming estreando no próximo mês, não se fala em outra coisa no universo mutante e é por isso que os editores Nick Lowe e Jeanine Schaefer se prontificaram a responder perguntas dos leitores.

Com o cancelamento de Cable na edição #25 de seu título, o público quer saber se o personagem não consegue manter um título solo e se, como medida desesperada, Deadpool precisa dar as caras. Lowe não acha que Cable faz papel secundário quando está em cena com Deadpool: Wade é apenas mais comunicativo e, por isso, aparece mais.

O cancelamento do título foi natural, já que, com Second Coming, ele perde seu propósito. Eles não quiseram manter a publicação do título apenas para ele continuar sendo publicado. Quando Second Coming chegar, os leitores verão que Cable estará envolvido com outras histórias.

O título-solo do personagem fez parte das modificações e estreias trazidas em Messiah Complex. O editor acredita que, após esse evento, cada revista ganhou seu próprio propósito bem-definido. Algumas tiveram melhor êxito do que outras, como X-Force em comparação a Young X-Men. Agora, após Second Coming, novamente haverá mudanças nos títulos – mudanças essas não diretamente na equipe criativa, mas nas histórias que serão contadas.

Os editores também foram perguntados sobre a relação entre Ciclope, Xavier e Magneto. Lowe não sabe ao certo o papel que cabe a Magnus dentro das histórias e Xavier também não está se sentindo muito confortável dentro dos X-Men, uma equipe criada por ele próprio. Em contrapartida, Ciclope é o general.

Os X-Men estão aceitando a liderança natural de Scott, porque ele está fazendo um bom trabalho. Não é um líder perfeito, mas está conseguindo manter os mutantes vivos mesmo que eles estejam passando por situações delicadas. Ele tomou decisões complicadas, mas está sabendo conviver com elas, e isso é reconhecido por seus companheiros.

Enquanto todos se preparam para Second Coming, os X-Men ainda estão tendo que superar as maquinações de Selene. Necrosha é, com certeza, um arco que trará mudanças também, com grandes ramificações para a X-Force e para os X-Men. Alguns elementos de Necrosha certamente impactarão Second Coming, mas não é um prelúdio para o evento.

O assunto das mortes realmente é um dos que mais preocupa os leitores. Lowe confirmou que pelo menos um X-Men morre em Second Coming, o que já era sabido pelas solicitações das revistas, mas não revelou se Bishop aparecerá nas histórias.

O editor não quis confirmar quem assume a X-Force depois de Kyle&Yost e não há nenhuma novidade reveladora sobre o futuro deles na franquia. Lowe se limitou a dizer que Yost continuará trabalhando com a Marvel, na animação do Thor.

Lowe deixou certas esperanças para que Jubileu volte a dar as caras no futuro, mesmo que ela tenha recusado o convite para morar em Utopia, e disse que não há planos para Aurora. A redação também esteve em contato com um autor há algum tempo para tratar da volta dos X-Men que estão no espaço – nos Piratas Siderais. Eles voltarão quando houver uma história boa a ser contada.

O editor descartou que Second Coming seja também a terceira parte da trilogia da Fênix (iniciada em EndSong e seguida por WarSong). As irmãs de Emma poderão ser vistas no especial Origins de Emma Frost, que será lançado em breve.

Todo o Universo Marvel está rumando para a Nova Era Heroica e os X-Men também terão importância nessa nova orientação da editora, a partir de Uncanny X-Men #526 e se expandindo pelos outros títulos. Lowe garantiu que teremos mais capítulos na novela “Hank McCoy e os X-Men”.

Perguntado se os X-Men mudarão de volta para Nova Iorque ou São Francisco, o editor disse que os que sobreviverem podem ir para ambas as cidades, pois lá se encontram bons hospitais: uma promessa de muito sangue durante a saga.

Lowe também lamentou o cancelamento de S.W.O.R.D., pois já era um fã do título. Brand e Lockheed vão aparecer novamente, pois ele adora os personagens.

Outro título que chega ao fim é Wolverine: Origins. Dan Way e Doug Braithwaite (desenhista da última edição) estão terminando a revista e, no final, apenas um homem ficará de pé.

Lowe finalizou garantindo que outras ressurreições acontecerão em Necrosha, além da de Cifra. Ele ainda disse que os personagens que terão mais destaque serão Hope Summers, Magneto, Dani Moonstar, Shatterstar, Fantomex, Jubileu e Detetive Love (de Demolidor #43-44), em uma clara estratégia para despistar os fãs.

Entrevista com Victor Gischler, escritor de Deadpool Corps:

Spoiler:


This spring, the big event in the mutant corner of the Marvel Universe is "X-Men: Second Coming." Deadpool naturally had to outdo this little X-affair with an event of his own which sees a second coming of...himself! More accurately, it sees the coming of various versions of Deadpools from alternate universes.

Those fans currently reading "Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth" met the first Deadpool variant early on in this series with the introduction of Headpool (the head of Zombie Deadpool). Recently, when Wade tried to return Headpool to his zombie universe, he learned of the existence of other Deadpools in different universes.

Well, these Deadpools will soon join together to form a team readers can follow in the ongoing series "Deadpool Corps," which will be written by Victor Gischler (who also writes the "Merc with a Mouth" title). This team promises to be unlike any ever seen before, and includes the likes of Lady Deadpool, Kidpool, Dogpool, and the aforementioned Headpool.

And if you think that sounds mind-blowing, here's a math problem for you: if each version of Deadpool hears at least two voices, and Wade tries to lead them in a sing-a-long of the Corps' fight song, how long will it take before Victor Gischler's brain explodes? Before he discovers the answer to this the hard way, let's have Mr. Gischler join us for some fun in this week's X-POSITION. Are you ready to take the train to crazy-town?

RJB kicks things off for us today with a pat on the back. He's also looking for some assurance that his future is Gischler-riffic!
I'm loving "Merc with a Mouth" – your humor is witty and fresh, each issue is thoroughly entertaining. I was just wondering if you are committed to both "Deadpool Corps" and "Merc with a Mouth," or will you be handing off DPC after the initial prelude/arc? Or will MWAM fade out after the first year and fold into DPC? In any case, you need to be on at least one book – your take on Deadpool is kick-ass.


Victor Gischler: Thanks! The simple answer is that I'll do as much Deadpool as I can for as long as Marvel will let me. I love the character and each script is fun as hell to write, and I'm always surprised how Bong Dazo (and the other fantastic artists) can take what I've written and make it look even better on the page.
Having said that, all good things must come to an end sooner or later. I'll still have plenty of Deadpool on my plate for the near future, but other projects have already been discussed and new things might be on my horizon. Stay tuned and all will be revealed!

This next query is a combination of two separate emails from Rob Baker and Ian Yoxon. You're used to hearing multiple voices at the same time, right?
I love "Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth!" The jokes crack me up every issue – the ‘Fight Club' quip was amazing. Will we be seeing other kinds of Deadpools than the ones introduced already? Personally, I'd like to see Ye'oldpool – Deadpool, but super-stereotyped British would be funny! Also, will zombie Deadpool ever get a new body?


Keep reading "Merc with a Mouth" and all your zombie body questions will be answered! Other kinds of Deadpools? I may have caught my limit...for now. (So, was that mysterious or just annoying? Meh. Either way.)

Speaking of "limits," Rwsharpjr is concerned that comic shelves are reaching theirs with regards to Wade's pretty mug. What can you tell him to ease his fears?
I've been a big fan of Deadpool since "Circle Chase," so I'm pretty happy to see the exposure that Deadpool's currently getting. I'm personally of the mindset that the more readers see Deadpool, the more they will like the character. However, I'm hearing from many fans that they feel that the character is suffering from overexposure. So my questions are:
1) How do you feel about the amount of exposure that the character's been getting lately?


I feel it's awesome because it keeps me employed. But seriously, it's just more proof how many readers think Deadpool is super-ultra-neato...which he is.

2) How long do you think this level of exposure can be maintained without becoming too much?

Honestly, that question is a little out of my league, and I'm glad I don't have to make those kinds of decisions. Also, I guess it depends on how you define "too much." Readers are sharp and will vote with their dollars. So far, so good.

3) Is the level of exposure that Deadpool's seeing a meta/inside joke thing? For example, the "Who Won't Wield The Shield" solicit said "Featuring a special appearance by everybody's favorite underused character, Deadpool! At last, Deadpool! In a comic!" It almost seems like there's a contest within Marvel to see who can find the most ways to use Deadpool...

I think that's just Marvel's way of showing they're perfectly aware there's a lot of Deadpool out there. But if there's a contest going on, I didn't get the memo. Hey, I'm just happy for my small part in the Deadpool revolution.

4) Will "Heroic Age" affect Deadpool at all?

Hmmmmm. Might be a better question for some of the other Deadpool writers. I have yet to receive any special "Heroic Age" instructions from the home office.

5) Has the zombie virus has now spread to the Deadpool Kid's universe because Liefeld-Cap's arm was left behind? Will we see follow-up on this in "Deadpool Corps?"

Cap's severed arm will be getting its own ongoing title in July. Stay tuned. (That's a joke. Please don't write letters.)

6) What are the chances of getting a "Where's Wade-o?" (i.e. "Where's Waldo?") type of book featuring our favorite merc-with-a-mouth? Pretty please?

Ha. I'll get my people on that right away! (Note: Gischler does not have people.)

You sure are giving us quite a few parenthetical asides. Of course, that's probably second nature to someone who writes Deadpool!
Andre4000 sent in the last email of the day. He wants to know more about the Corps. Be a good drill sergeant and yell out an answer...or six.
1) Why do you think Deadpool hasn't just destroyed zombie Deadpool instead of taking him to another universe? We know from "Marvel Zombies" that they can be destroyed, and he didn't have any problem killing Cowboy Deadpool...


Well, against all good judgment (does Wade Wilson have good judgment?), he and the zombie head are sort of becoming pals. As for Cowboy Deadpool, well, I mean, why not shoot Cowboy Deadpool. Did you see that hat? Come on!

2) Can you tell us the reason for the existence of the "Deadpool Corps?" (other than to sell tons of books, of course). Are they on a mission of some sort? And, if so, is it an ongoing mission or does it have a definite end-goal in sight?

Yes, a very very very very very very important mission that only multiple Deadpools can handle. The very universe itself is at stake! VERY IMPORTANT! MISSION! AT STAKE! You see what I'm saying...

3) How big can we expect the corps to grow to? A dozen Deadpools? A thousand? Maybe...52?

Right now we're good with five, I think. No need for more. Certainly not 52!

4) Will we see a variety of universes in "Deadpool Corps?" And if so, can we expect the continued theme of a different artist for each universe? Personally, I liked the way it looked...

The bigwigs at the home office decide on artists, but I see what you mean. It's a cool way to give each universe its own look. Hey, maybe that's an idea for the future. But for this opening arc, we'll be sticking to one universe.

5) Can you give us a hint on the wackiest Deadpool we'll meet in the corps? And where are you getting your ideas for the different Deadpools?

I think we've already glimpsed most (all?) of the members, so now we just need to see them in action. I have a soft spot for Dogpool.

6) Is there any chance Marvel may have a "Design a Deadpool contest?" That would be loads of fun!

If I were in charge I would totally do that! There's a surprisingly long list of things I'm not in charge of...
Hey, who do I talk to about that?

Well, before you hunt that person down, it's time for some "Behind the X" fun, where we ask you – our guest – a little "get-to-know-you" question. So, in the spirit of the recent holiday, what the best Valentine you've either given or received?

Honestly, Valentine's Day is pretty simple around my house...maybe exchange cards, have a special meal. Nothing too exciting. If in doubt, a shoebox full of twenties is always a welcome gift.

Ah, a box full of money – it's clear you know the heart of the character you write very well.

Deadpool é o personagem da vez da Marvel, com três títulos próprios e aparições em diversas outras revistas. Em breve, o público terá a oportunidade de ler um quarto título do Mercenário Tagarela: “Deadpool Corps”, que agrega versões multifacetadas do personagem, como Headpool, Lady Deadpool, Kidpool e Dogpool. O novo título será escrito por Victor Gischler, que já escreve “Deadpool: Merc With a Mouth”.

O autor permanecerá em ambos os títulos por quanto tempo a Marvel permitir, pois é um verdadeiro fã de Deadpool, ou melhor, de todas os múltiplos derivados dele, que darão as caras em suas duas revistas. O Zumbi continuará dando as caras em “Merc With a Mouth”.

Gischler brincou dizendo que a superexposição do personagem é excelente, pois o mantém empregado. Contudo, ele não soube dizer como chegar à dosagem certa e a superexposição não ser excessiva, mas as vendas são um bom termômetro. A própria Marvel sabe que o Deadpool está aparecendo muito e parece se divertir com isso.

Perguntado sobre o efeito da Era Heróica sobre o personagem, Gischler respondeu que não recebeu ainda nenhuma instrução de especial ou interação de Deadpool com essa nova fase.

O escritor ainda brincou com a razão de ser da tropa de Deadpools: eles estão em uma missão muito importante, pois o universo todo está correndo perigo. O grupo se mantém em 5 personagens, pois não há necessidade de mais, e um dos preferidos de Gischler é o Dogpool.

X-Position com Matt Fraction:

Spoiler:


Gavin J. starts off our week with a teaspoon of praise and a tablespoon of questions. Sounds like the makings of a good X-POSITION, don't you think?
I wanted to take a moment to say how much I've been enjoying "Uncanny X-Men" since "Manifest Destiny" and Utopia's restructuring. The idea of the mutant race becoming more than a civil rights conflict and turning into a community banding together for survival has been fascinating to watch. Cyclops' mission is clearly different than Xavier's dream. It's been incredibly entertaining to watch Cyclops (a character I used to loath) become such a unifying figure.
I found the "Utopia" arc to be most compelling, with the analogies made between Proposition X and attempts to vote on and ban same-sex marriage. I'm always struck with how well the X-Men speak as a metaphor for minority civil rights issues. My questions:
1) Given that the X-Men are representative of almost all of the mutant population, wouldn't it make sense for the X-Men leaders to establish government liaisons and PR teams to deal with public perceptions and clear up the despicable policy issues attached to Osborn's storming of San Francisco?


Hey Gavin, these are great questions. So first off, thanks for that, and thanks for the kind words. Weirdly enough, we had the Prop X thing in the works long before I was aware of Prop 8 in California...same as in "Invincible Iron Man" where we did a thing about kids with backpacks running coordinated terror attacks on major cities and crippling them, five months before Mumbai (you try to come up with some fictional horror and then the world catches up to you). And, yeah, Xavier had a dream - Scott has a mission. That's been the root of everything since "Uncanny X-Men" #500 (or the end of Messiah CompleX," really). Anyway, let's tear into it...
You're right on the money, here. As "Nation X" resolves and the mutants that come out of "Second Coming" come out of it, we'll see the light of the Heroic Age cast on our fabulous freakshow in precisely those ways. I've already set up a PR-for-the-super-powered-character back in "The Order," as a matter of fact, and she'll be arriving during our new arc, which might be called "The Five Lights" or "Black Swans" (I keep trying to find a place that title will work, dammit), or maybe it'll be called something else entirely. But, yes, the X-Men will fight public perception (amongst other things) and come - if you'll pardon the phrase - out of the darkness and into the daylight.

2) Emma Frost seemed like a very capable - and at times, inspirational - leader during the her Dark X-Men's brief run. What differences in leadership style would you say she has with the man she shares a bed with? What do you think her overall motivation is when she's in a leadership role, and will she take a more direct leadership role in the future?

Boy, she did, didn't she? I think there's a confidence vs. experience differential at play - Emma runs her game like she's been marshaling armies all her life, whereas Scott - who actually has - probably has to tamp down his sense of surprise whenever someone does what he says. That, to me, is one of the things that make them a great couple: together they've got what the other one needs so very badly.
Emma's motivations are as they've always been: protect and train her fellow mutants. And God help you if you get in her way.
Coming ahead, I think we're seeing trust and maturity between Scott and Emma enrich and deepen; surely that will beget more responsibility. The fun of it comes when you take a terminal rule-breaker like Emma and smash her into by-the-book Scott...

3) There have been a lot of new additions to the X-fold (Namor, Magneto, Cloak and Dagger) that seem both radically different and too good to be true. What inspired you to bring these characters around to Cyclops' way of thinking? For example, what does Namor seek to gain from working with the X-Men? Does he see it as a fulfilling an IOU in his agreement with Frost? Or has Atlantis' struggles made him more sympathetic with mutantkind's problems?

First off, I wanted to create a line-up we'd not seen before. It's so easy to get pulled into the Classic Claremont Gravity Well with X-Men - I mean, understandably; it was the guy's life's work, and it's pretty titanic as far as runs go, y'know? Anyway, shaking things up is important; not just constantly revisiting or revamping or retelling the classics of the X-canon is always a concern. Not that we're always successful in not doing that or anything, but that's kind of a good goal to have. Changing up and creating an X-team (or "teams," really) we've not seen before, or don't really think of as X-Men, was interesting to me.
Everybody's got their reasons, but none are as fun as Namor. First off, he likes blondes, and if he can't have Sue Storm, he'll chase after Emma. Second, they have their mutual Faustian pact (as outlined in the "Uncanny X-Men" Annual last year). Don't think the lid is on that particular pot, either. And lastly...well, Namor's already seen a genocide and neglect inflicted on Atlantis. He's already seen what kind of cruelty the surface world is capable of over those that share half his heritage; when he sees the surface world moving towards those with whom he shares the other half...it's time to act. He has his and Atlantis' interests first and foremost in his mind, but that's maybe not the sole focus of his altruism.
I can't wait for you guys to see him in the upcoming year. He's a completely volatile and unpredictable variable in the "X" equation.

4) Finally, does Cyclops view being forced to leave their newly-established Marin headquarters as a failure? It seems a little disappointing, as it was the one time and place mutantkind was overtly accepted within overall society. Is the move to Utopia something Cyclops considers a permanent one, or does the group eventually think it will be able to return to San Francisco proper? Will we be seeing more of Mayor Sinclair from time to time?

One man's failure is another tactical retreat; that said, we're not done with San Francisco or the Marin headlands, and they're not done with us. "Nation X," "X-Men: Second Coming," and the aforementioned following arc will tell the tale, starting with "Uncanny" #526.


Asher was curious about a recent addition to Utopia, and wondered how long this character is going to stick around before he's voted off the island.
I love the interpretation of Magneto you're giving us, but it seems like he is one of the X-characters most subject to "rebooting" into generic evil. That has made me leery of believing the direction you're taking with him. So I'm wondering: how do you make a previously "villainous" character change sides in a convincing manner? How many of the decisions regarding this version of Magneto is yours, and how much is editorial fiat? And - while you may not answer this - I have to ask: has Magneto actually switched sides at all?


Well, I hope by dropping to his knees and giving his helmet to Cyclops we show him...not necessarily "changing" sides, but rather finding a new side he'd never believed existed before. He's discovered something else, beyond the Manichean. Then spending seven issues with people not being comfortable with him being a good guy or being non-threatening leads him to perform this amazing feat by way of asking for forgiveness might suggest he's turned over a new leaf...
I have no interest in writing the old switcheroo routine; it's been done, and it's been done better than I could ever do it. What we've never seen is a Magneto in awe of Scott Summer's accomplishments in unifying mutantkind, and he's come offering his support and wisdom in a consigliere-kind of capacity. A chief of staff, a senior advisor...an old man that admires what a young man has done, and rather than resent him for it, he recognizes and respects the accomplishment. And wants to help.
If Magneto falls from whatever state of grace he may find for himself, it won't be because he, mwah-ha-ha, had it in for the X-Men all along! Because again - it's not only been done before, but it's been done beautifully, and I don't want to retread that.
This take on Magneto has been mine. Mayyyyybe it was Ed's - I know we both agreed very early on that issue #500 was going to set up his ultimate return, that #500 had to be a Magneto story. The idea of Magneto-as-Tom-Hagen was mine.
And I don't want to say there's no such thing as "editorial fiat," but at the same time, that's not really how the office works.

And for those that are curious, Merriam Webster defines Manichean as: 1) a believer in a syncretistic religious dualism originating in Persia in the third century A.D. and teaching the release of the spirit from matter through asceticism; 2) a believer in religious or philosophical dualism.
I figured that since I had to look it up anyway, I'd spare you the search. Knowledge is fun!
And on the topic of Magneto, Joshua Hetherington (and a few other X-fans) was wondering about the limits of Erik's powers.
1) I'm a little bit confused. Magneto can't keep Utopia floating, yet he can allegedly grab a massive bullet light years away that gets more dense as it flies through the depths of space. This is a bullet that has been travelling in space since before 'Messiah CompleX,' which was almost two years ago. Reed Richards and Tony Stark couldn't figure out a solution, but this option was available? It seems...sketchy.


Well, I think you've misread the book a little bit and you're making some presumptions; let me see if I can get your suspension of disbelief back on track some. As was stated in the scene with the X-club, he could, theoretically, keep it floating, but only if that's all he does all the time. The power drain is constant and to counter it, he'd have to constantly be recharging the batteries, as it were. But he needs to eat, sleep, and do something that isn't just crank his power to ten 24-7. So it's not a can't, it's more of a shouldn't, or couldn't for very long. It'd be fruitless and ultimately just exhaust him.
And Magneto knew where the bullet was; he'd seen it; he knew where to look. And the power-rebooting process he underwent in space augmented him with a depth of ability he'd lacked for a long time. That it happened close to where Kitty passed, that his magnetic awareness, as it were, was revitalized close to her...I mean, that might have had something to do with it.
Mags had it all over Reed and Tony in this case; but if you don't buy that the old man (who used to be an even older man but then wasn't and was good, then evil, then good, then dead, then alive, then dead, then alive but in space and can control magnetism) can bring back a giant, airless, foodless and waterless (Seriously! I should've asked Joss when I had him on the phone - WHAT HAS KITTY BEEN EATING!?!) hollow ghost bullet containing a ghostly girl from deep space, but the man who can stretch his body like silly putty (that got his powers by stealing a rocket and going into near-earth orbit with his college buddy, girlfriend, and her brother) and the billionaire with the billion dollar suit of armor (that used to have transistors and magnets in his chest after stepping on a Vietcong landmine, was then a teenager, then an adult, then infused with a living techbridge that tied him to his armor, then erased his entire brain) couldn't find her...well, when you put it like that, it's a fair cop. Admittedly, when the issue is framed in those terms, I have trouble buying it too.
In all seriousness, though, you're assuming that Magneto is going to hop up and skip and dance if he successfully brings Kitty home. There's no value in what Magneto's doing if it isn't a sacrifice for him to do. If it was easy, it'd be an empty gesture. This is not easy. This comes with a price. Keep reading.

2) Will we be seeing X-Man (Nate Grey) appear in "Uncanny X-Men" after 'Second Coming?'

He's a great character. Keep reading.


Nicholas Marinelli does plan to keep reading, but he wants to make sure you'll keep writing. What can you tell him?
1) After "X-Men: Second Coming" ends, will you still be writing "Uncanny X-Men?" It seems you might have a lot going on with "Thor" and "Invincible Iron Man" as well - is it tricky to juggle three titles?


Unless you know something I don't. I'd like to keep on "Uncanny" for a while yet; I've only gotten about halfway through the story I set out to tell. And apparently people are digging it; they told me at the last editorial retreat that the book hit the top ten last month, so it feels like people are finding "Uncanny" anew. After something like "Second Coming," hopefully even more folks will find it.
It's not that tricky as they're all so wildly different. It's a bit like cross-training for me. No one muscle group gets more attention than another. I don't know if that makes sense or not - like, if I was doing "Uncanny X-Men," "Avengers, and "Other Avengers"...yeah, that might get tricky. But my three books are pretty divergent and pretty different from one another. The workload itself isn't tricky at all.

2) Are we ever going to see Colossus' tattoo?

I don't think we should. Just hints of it. I think it should be for him and Kitty. Is that weird?

Sounds fine to me, but if it's a tattoo of Psylocke in a bikini, Pete's gonna have some splainin' to do...
Richard Terrones has been following one of the other X-books (as all good X-fans should) and had a question about something surprising he read:
With the revelation in "New Mutants" #10 that Cyclops is looking for a new leader of the X-Men, are you planning to address this in "Uncanny?" Will this become even more relevant soon?


It's actually gonna be Zebby himself in a metafictional conceit that'll make your hair curl. Hope is back! And she's a dude! A dude named Zeb! Uh-oh - spoilers.

WhitePhoenix sent in a lot of warm, kind words. Feel free to wrap them around yourself like a blankie as you answer his queries...
I'm a fairly huge fan of your writing and the recent direction of "Uncanny X-Men." I know that some fans may have given you some guff, but I personally enjoy how many items you try to juggle at once. I find the set-up to be engaging and, quite frankly, very inviting (even if things don't always turn out the way I hoped.)


Eh, I've only dealt with really amazing, kind, and gracious fans. A lot of that is because I don't go looking for that stuff online. My contact tends to be at shows, and the folks I encounter at those shows tend to want to meet me rather than stab my eyes out or tell me I'm ruining everything or whatever. I dunno, if people don't hate what you're doing on "Uncanny X-Men," you're doing "Uncanny X-Men" wrong. So I'm glad you dig the multiple plotline thing. I hope to keep getting better at it as I go.
(I got the idea from Denny O'Neil's book about writing comics. There's a bit about how Paul Levitz used to juggle his "Legion" stories; that was the starting point. I digress.)

Allow me to explain my praises in one statement: OH MY STARS AND FREAKIN' GARTERS!

Honestly, I'm truly envious of your position as the writer of the flagship title of the X-Men universe, but I also would hate to be in your position as a lot really rests on your shoulders. With all that in mind, here are my questions:

1) Since you've got such a huge cast of characters on one island, do you find it hard to make each character you write feel like an individual?

I try to do enough planning ahead of time so that each chunk of story has a divergent enough cast to avoid that; whether that comes through on the page or not isn't up for me to decide or declare, but that's the idea anyway...
You can tell the characters I have the toughest time with if they're not around much. I feel like I only recently plugged into what makes Storm work, so, like, she'll be around more in the future. Iceman is another. I have a lot of Bobby coming up because I feel like I finally understood him; I could articulate what interests me about him - I finally heard his voice. I mean, that's what anybody writing a team book does anyway, I'm just doing it with all the toys on the table at once rather than selecting who I sit down with. If, uh, that makes sense...eating buffet style rather than a la carte.


2) Have you ever written a character saying or doing something, and then eventually regretted it or wished it had panned out differently?

Yes. I think I blew Professor X's reaction to Magneto returning. I just...I knew what I wanted to do with it and I didn't stick the landing. I wanted, with that story, to see Scott and the Professor both having unexpected reactions to Magneto's unexpected gesture. I wanted everybody to be twisted and turned and thrown off their game and to act in ways we'd not seen precisely. Just throw everyone out of their comfort zone, have their responses be as human and unexpected to each other as to themselves.
I thought it would be really fascinating and heart-rending to see Professor X be wrong - just for a second, just in the heat of a single moment, for just that split damn second - to have that be his own wake-up call that his dream is over, or that it's at least over for now. And I really don't think it landed. It's hard - it was a brutal scene to write. I did more drafts on that issue than almost anything else I've done because it was so tough.
In the final analysis, I don't think I pulled it off. I'll be looking to redeem myself with Prof. X in the upcoming arc; trying to get the poor guy written right seems the least I can do...!

3) If you could have just one mutant character in "Uncanny" that's not currently in your huge ensemble, who would it be?

My son loves elephants, so I'd take Mammomax back from the grave. (Mammmommmaxx? Mammothomaxium? The mathamam? However you spelled the dude with the elephant's head's name.) I'd take that guy in a cheap ploy for cool dad points.

Junnun Quazi sent in our final email of the day. He's trying to view the X-Men's future in his crystal ball, but everything looks a bit fuzzy. Can you help clear things up?
1) In the past, it has been stated that the X-writers and editors look at the X-Men as an army with Cyclops as its General. How will this change with the end of "X-Men: Second Coming?" Do you still plan to keep the X-Men as an army with one General, or change them again into something new with Hope's arrival?


Hmm. Man, you guys are asking amazing questions this time out. Way to go, X-Positioners!
(It should be said that George culls, sorts, and sends them to me, so there could actually have been, like, a billion terrible ones...I don't know. But these? The ones sent? Top drawer work, people! Thank you!)
Let's see what I can say without getting too ruin-y as to what comes in "Second Coming." That's the big issue, coming out of "Second Coming." What does a general do when his war is over? Huge. And what Hope's return means...how everyone (that lives!) has to recalibrate what being a mutant means, what their lives could be. Hope's return, and everything around it, is the end of one epoch and the start of another. How the mutants recalibrate within is sort of what Year Three is about.

2) With the May solicitations stating that one of the X-Men will perish, I was wondering how you, as a writer, decide who to kill off? Is the decision merely in terms of furthering the story, or does it encompass character usage and overall popularity?

Well, in this case, it came out of the "Second Coming" editorial retreat. Let me back up for a second and say this: this one, in particular, was a gut punch. It was awful, it hurt, it was sad, depressing...and it makes the story of "Second Coming" impossible to ignore. It pushes "Second Coming" beyond just another "somebody's killing the X-Men" territory and into...well, into something real? Into something with big stakes? And it brings this character's arc to a beautiful, tragic close and pushes the whole of the event - and the whole of mutantkind - forward. They say in writing you have to be ready to kill your darlings, and this was definitely one of those times.
I don't know who first said the character's name, but, stomachache and all, I understood why it was going to happen. So, I mean, from just a brute, technical, level, yes, it furthers the story, but it furthers the story because it has meaning. If, uh, MMaammmoommmaaaaxxxx, died in the issue, in the scene at hand, it would've felt like, well, jeez, those dudes really hated that character and wanted to be done with him; this is someone you know, it's someone we know, it's someone we all love.
I wrote the funeral issue last week and it was just...I dunno. It was sad. You might hate it - some days I do, too - but it's an earned death, a heroic death, and the aftermath was absolutely difficult to have to put down on the page. But there's nothing cheap about it; it propels and complicates and deepens and enrichens. In the way that real loss always does.

Per Mr. Fraction's "thanks" for the great questions, allow me to express my gratitude as well. When you send in terrific queries, you make X-POSITION a bunch of fun for our guests and me. Keep it up!
And now, before we go, it's time for this week's "Behind the X" question, where we get to know our X-writers on a more personal level. Matt, if you don't mind, please tell us...of all the vehicles you've owned (anything from a skateboard to an automobile), which was your favorite and why?


Ummm...I was thirty, I think, when I first bought a car. I had a fixed dollar amount and wanted to buy; it wasn't a lot. I had no idea what I was doing. My wife and I - then my fiancée (is that the one that means the lady? Anyway...) - we were out looking, basically, for the best car we could find for what we had to spend. And nothing we drove felt real - nothing felt like it was made out of steel. They all felt plastic and battery-powered...until we came to a '99 Ford Escort. We sat down, I put it into first (it was a manual!) and "Sister Christian" began to blast out of the stereo. Before we even got it out of the lot on the test drive, we knew this was the car we were going to buy.
So, uh, a '99 'Scort - don't be fooled by the 'Scort I got, I'm still Matty from the block...I guess. Because of "Sister Christian." Because of Night Ranger.

Great - I'm going to have that song stuck in my head all day. Thanks Matt.

Fraction começou sua entrevista falando de dois dos maiores personagens dos X-Men. Para ele, a grande diferença entre Xavier e Ciclope à frente da equipe é o modo como eles encaram o seu próprio papel: Xavier tinha um sonho, Scott tem uma missão.

Outra pessoa que se mostrou uma ótima líder foi Emma, durante o cross Utopia. Suas motivações são proteger e treinar os outros mutantes e ela fará de tudo para atingir seu objetivo.

O relacionamento entre ela e Scott vai se tornando cada vez mais maduro e ambos têm características complementares.

Muitos personagens se juntaram aos X-Men desde o início do run de Fraction. O que o autor quis foi montar uma equipe jamais vista. Para ele, Namor está no grupo por alguns motivos engraçados, como seu gosto por loiras (vide Sue Storm) e o pacto que ele fez com Emma no anual de Uncanny X-Men. Só que essa aparente lealdade aos X-Men pode ser bem volátil.
Fraction garantiu que os X-Men ainda permanecerão na ilha no arco após Second Coming, que se inicia em Uncanny X-Men #526.

Magneto é um personagem bastante contestado pelos leitores no run de Fraction, por sua aparente submissão a Scott. O escritor não acredita que, ao se ajoelhar frente ao Ciclope, Magneto esteja trocando de lados. Ele apenas descobriu algo além do maniqueismo. O que Fraction fez foi transceder as velhas histórias e escrever algo que nunca havia sido feito: um antigo guerreiro que está admirando o trabalho de um jovem, respeitando-o e oferecendo ajuda.

A tão esperada pergunta sobre os momentos de fraqueza (não consegue manter a ilha flutuando) e de força (consegue trazer a bala de Kitty de volta) de Magneto foi feita. Fraction criticou o leitor que fez a pergunta, dizendo que ele não entendeu o que leu: Magnus poderia fazer a ilha se manter flutuando, desde que ele fizesse só isso da vida – a necessidade de poder seria constante. Quanto à bala, Fraction disse que Magneto sabia onde a bala estava e, por isso, pôde trazê-la de volta. Quando ele estava recuperando suas energias no espaço, a bala passou perto dele e isso chamou a atenção de seu campo magnético. A explicação é tão absurda que o próprio autor fez piada, dizendo que se ele precisava dedicar todas suas forças para manter a ilha flutuando, também o é trazer a Kitty de volta. E isso será um grande sacrifício da parte dele e ele pagará um preço muito caro. Para sabermos do preço, precisaremos ler a próxima edição.

Mais uma vez, Fraction confirmou que ficará em Uncanny depois de Second Coming. Ele garante que ainda está na metade do caminho do que se planejou a fazer no título. Com o título aparecendo no TOP TEN, o autor acredita que seu trabalho está sendo benquisto.

Não há planos para vermos a tatuagem do Colossus. Isso ficará na intimidade dele e da Kitty.

Fraction desconversou sobre se a busca de Ciclope por um novo líder em New Mutants vai ter reflexos em Uncanny. Mas ele lembrou que Hope está de volta.

Ele deu uma esperança aos fãs de Tempestade e Homem de Gelo, garantindo que eles aparecerão mais no futuro. Brincou ainda que se pudesse escolher um personagem que não está no elenco para colocar em Uncanny seria o Mammomax. Fraction considera Nate Grey um ótimo personagem e abriu a possibilidade de ele aparecer depois de Second Coming.

Falando de algum quadro de cujo resultado se arrependeu, ele não gostou de como ficou a reação do Professor X à volta de Magneto. Ele tinha em mente o que queria, mas não conseguiu colocar fielmente no papel. O escritor espera se redimir com Xavier no próximo arco.

Sem estragar as surpresas de Second Coming, ele disse que a grande questão que ficará após o evento é o que um general – Scott – fará quando a guerra acabar, além é claro do que significa a volta de Hope.

Nas solicitações de maio, os leitores ficaram sabendo que um dos X-Men vai morrer. Fraction disse que foi uma decisão tomada em reunião editorial e que a morte desse X-Man, em particular, foi realmente um soco no estômago, o que faz de Second Coming algo difícil de se ignorar, mas que levará a raça mutante um passo adiante. Ele não se lembra quem foi o primeiro a sugerir o nome do personagem morto, mas que fez todo sentido. É alguém que todos conhecem e que todos amam. Fraction escreveu a edição do funeral e foi bastante triste e difícil de retratar.

E para aqueles que querem saber do impacto da Era Heroica, os X-Men estarão em maior contato com a população em geral, deixando o isolamento e caminhando para uma vida mais pública.

Polêmica sobre a homossexualidade de Shatterstar:

Spoiler:


PETER DAVID'S "X-FACTOR": EARTH MOVING, STAR SHATTERING

The Marvel Universe is designed to be reflective of the real world, partly to make current storylines seem more relevant to the way we live, and partly because having President Obama giving orders to the spandex set is an amazing way to grab headlines. Whatever the exact reasoning, over the years it’s led Marvel to run with storylines and characters off the beaten path of expected super heroics, laying the groundwork for what are arguably some of the more forward-thinking representations in mainstream entertainment today.

Though in the case of Peter David's work on Marvel's "X-Factor," working minority issues into the plot as part and parcel of the series' ongoing character arcs ended up making waves in an unexpected manner. As many who follow the comics blogosphere know, Shatterstar and Rictor – two mutant characters hinted at having a “special bond” for almost twenty years – finally put all rumors to rest in the first on-panel kiss between two major male superhero characters in last fall’s issue #45.

"Honestly," explained "X-Factor" editor Jody Leheup, "we knew this was going to be a cool moment for the fans, but it hadn’t really occurred to us that it would be so important to gay (and heterosexual) comics fans as a whole. But we are all extremely pleased to see that it means so much to so many. That said, we didn’t want to market around the kiss or play it up too much, because we all really want things like this to be seen as normal."

"There was absolutely no trouble getting it approved at all," noted David. "The approvals process consisted of: I wrote it and a few months later it saw print. This may sound naive, but to me it just wasn't that big a deal. Or at least I didn't know it was going to be as big a deal as it became. As for fan opinion, it was certainly the storyline that I got the most requests for. I had certainly been aware of the subtext present, but it really could have gone in either direction. But it seemed to me that the time was right, and so decided to embark on it."

Perhaps adding more relevance to the kiss is that fact that Rictor and Shatterstar are not what you would consider token queer characters. Shatterstar comes from a dimension where power is measured in ratings, and spineless executives manufacture genetically perfected performers that tantalize their show's viewers with their charm, grace, and physical perfections. Shatterstar comes from the warrior end of the warehouse line, being primarily a fighter, but always a performer.

Rictor is a Mexican born into the worst situation in society – being a mutant who could make the earth move – with a history spanning two major-selling titles. A long stint in limbo led to being a member of the noir-styled mix of detective and super-hero pulps which is the current version of "X-Factor." Suffering from bouts of depression due to the loss of his special gifts, Rictor has been the voice of sarcasm and reality checks for the past 50 issues, and the one question fans having been asking since his return was "When would Shatterstar come to visit?"
"Peter mentioned that he wanted to bring Shatterstar back, and we thought it was a really fun idea," Leheup recalled. "Rictor and Shatterstar aren’t household names, so to speak, and the fact that they aren’t as visible on the radar enabled Peter to have more freedom to interpret them. The kiss, in this instance, wasn’t really something that we needed to run up the flag pole."

"Am I the first writer to explicitly state it? Yes. But various writers have been laying trackwork for this development for going on 20 years," David said. "There's been so much speculation about subtext between the two of them that there are entire websites dedicated to 'Ricstar,' as he and Shatterstar are called (which, as combo names go, is unquestionably superior to Ricshat). And with Rictor in the series, I thought it would be interesting to bring back Shatterstar in this more modern day and age when one didn't have to hide such relationships behind nudge-nudge, wink-wink, don't ask, don't tell policies. Initially, I was only bringing Shatterstar back for the duration of the storyline, but response has been so positive that I decided to keep him around."

Since neither Shatterstar or Rictor were originally envisioned as gay by their creators, many fans wonder how long it will be before the characters revert to earlier representations or different spins are added to the current set-up.

"I think it's far too premature to speculate what Rictor would do should he and Shatterstar break up," said David. "I mean, we only just definitively got them together. I think the more interesting dynamic will stem from the fact that Shatterstar, who spent most of his life having no interest in or concept of sexuality, is now the equivalent of a kid in a candy store. Here's Rictor, fully prepared to commit seriously to this relationship, and there's Shatterstar, who wants to explore all manner of possibilities and wants Rictor to be his companion and guide in that regard because he loves him and trusts him. To some degree, I'm keying his personality off Captain Jack Harkness from 'Torchwood': swashbuckling, enthusiastic and sexually curious about anything with a pulse." And those traits are something shown in how everyone seems slightly drawn to the warrior-performer who greets old friends with passionate kisses aplenty.

It had been earlier suggested that Rictor was primarily bi-sexual, explaining many years of romances with women alongside his on-going friendship with Shatterstar. With this idea now canon, David sees Rictor settling down. "He had his involvements with females, sure, just as women who eventually decided they were lesbians had involvements with men that they ultimately considered unfulfilling." David points out, "at this point, at least the way I'm writing him, he's fully committed to the gay lifestyle. He's become honest about it both with others and himself."

And David doesn’t take the "yay-gay" angle, where everyone is instantly comfortable and unquestioning of the character’s new relationship. Fellow cast member Guido, also known as Strong Guy, surprised many with a very visible discomfort to the idea, especially for a character whose long X-history includes being the bodyguard for a galaxy spanning rock diva.

"My feeling is that, as far as Guido is concerned, he grew up in one of those tough neighborhoods where no one was gay,” the writer explained. "Which is to say that guys didn't cop to being gay because they'd get the crap kicked out of them. And sure, Guido is a liberal guy who's open minded, or at least likes to feel that he is. His attitude is that whatever some dudes do in the privacy of their bedroom is their own business. But now here's someone who he thought he knew, and it turns out he didn't know him as well as he thought, and now he's got a mental image of Shatterstar and Rictor going at it, and the whole thing just leaves him feeling kind of squeed about it. He doesn't hate them for it, but it's outside of his comfort level, and he's even frustrated by that because he didn't know it was a problem for him. So he feels guilty about feeling the way that he does, but he can't help how he feels. Consequently, he's dealing with it in a way that comes naturally for him: Making jokes about it."

In the end, the biggest detractor to the relationship has been Shatterstar’s creator Rob Liefeld, who posted several deterring remarks about the shift in a character he feels was always too involved with swordplay to worry about his sword-play.

"I was saddened by it, really, because I thought it brought out all the worst possible sentiments," said David. "First there were the Liefeld fans who believed that I 'made' Shatterstar gay because I was trying to somehow hurt Rob, which just goes to show you how people view someone being gay; that it's some sort of insult. I'll bet you if I'd killed him off, people wouldn't have seen some sort of personal enmity behind the move. But follow-up on subtext created by other writers for nineteen years and, hoo boy.

"If I'd brought Shatterstar back and had him get involved with Monet [a girl], my suspicion is that he'd have had nothing to say about it. There wouldn't have been any of this 'But he's not supposed to be interested in sex' stuff. I think it's foolish to expect a character to remain frozen in creative amber for decades. What makes a character last is his ability to change with the times. That said, I have to add that, just as a rule of thumb, if you're going to contend that your character isn't gay, don't compare him to ancient Greek warriors (as Rob did), because anyone who has the slightest awareness of history is going to start laughing uncontrollably. We've seen good characters turned bad, evil characters turned good, characters killed off, change gender, etc. But the line is to be drawn [and] the squawking starts when one of them kisses another of the same gender? I don't buy it."

Rictor and Shatterstar’s relationship continues to evolve within the newly renumbered "X-Factor," with issue #202 hitting comic shops on February 24. "My attitude is, regardless of your sexual orientation, you should read ['X-Factor'] simply because it's a great comic with an exciting tale and compelling characters," concluded David. "I'm not out to cater to lovers of gay relationships per se anymore than I'm out to cater to lovers of straight relationships. I just want lovers of good stories, and let the rest be sorted out for itself."
