Amazing X-Men #1 Review

Comic Reviews

For those who don’t know, Nightcrawler died during the “Second Coming” storyline in the X-books. He died defending Hope from the villain Bastion.

“Second Coming” was in 2010, so Marvel gets a little credit for keeping Nightcrawler dead for as many years as they have. His death was controversial at the time. Nightcrawler was a fan favorite character and had never been killed before. The X-Men creative team felt like that made him the perfect sacrifice for story purposes.

Fast forward to the launch of Jason Aaron’s Wolverine and the X-Men in 2011. As the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning opens, some familiar blue creatures start popping up (or BAMF’ing up) on campus. No explanation is given as to their origin. Two years later, it looks like we’re finally getting that origin in Amazing X-Men #1. Along with the resurrection of Nightcrawler.

Infinity #5 Review

Comic Reviews

Even though I haven’t understood everything Jonathan Hickman has been building in his Avengers series’, he has done a masterful job with Infinity.

We are nearing the end of the event series and things are starting to fall into place. The space and Earth stories are converging, and at least two future plots are established.

Superior Spider-Man #20 Review

Comic Reviews

Even with Dan Slott bringing Spider-Man 2099 into the present in a three-issue arc, Superior Spider-Man #20 was the comic that was hyped as being crucial to future stories.

Consequences and repercussions were promised. Plus, we get Black Cat on the cover. She hasn’t cross paths with Spider-Man since Otto Octavius occupied his body. How much of a role does she play here?
