Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men post #1  quote:



Was going to stick this in the comic forum, but its probably gonna be more interesting here.

I've only read one of these comics and I can't for the life of me remember which one... wasn't bad, but he's be criticized a fair bit for being boring.

I have the last two issues, not bad, White Queen turned bad again and is messing with Cyke. Last I saw he was passed out drooling without his visor on and beams weren't coming out. Hmmm.

Remember, his eye-lids can stop those super-powered, ultra hot and strong beams... did he have his eyes closed?

What do you mean? He's written the last 14 or so issues. If you want the story lines, though, I can't help you

It would be great to find a comprehensive review of X-Men comics from the early ones to now, with quick reviews of the story lines... I've never come across anything like that yet.

There's a pretty good Spiderman one, though.

I only know Colossus is back and White Queen re-formed Hellfire Club with some freak-o in a robe and she is messing with Cyke's mind.

Just wanted to update. Astonishing X-Men is on the 18th issue and I've been keeping up. I love the issues and wait for them at my comic store. Joss is a wonderful writer, which we all already knew, of course, but I just wanted to say it again.

post #16  quote:

Kitty brought Emma down under the Earth and left her in a hole to starve to death. Wolverine and the Beast were running around the woods--Wolverine was acting like some prep school kid and Beast was a beast. They remembered who they were when Beast smelled a specially prepared ball of yarn chock full of memory-triggering smells and Wolverine had a beer. Kitty was feeling pretty good about getting rid of Emma, but the cloaked figure came out of a room behind her and threw off her cloak. She was the White Queen. The White Queen got into Kitty's head and made her go through years of a fake life. Kitty thought that she was married to Colossus and that they had a kid, then when her son was a toddler all the X-Men came to her, including Colossus, and took her him away because he was "not right," or something like that. So Kitty went after Colossus and made him tell her where her son was, and he said the boy was in this big container. Then the WQ let Kitty go and Kitty ran off to the container that the WQ wanted opened. After much work, Kitty phased through it and got her "son" out, only to be released by the WQ and realize that she was holding some gross huge larva thing. Colossus finds her and the WQ gets shot by Cyclops (his powers are either now gone or he can control them, because he wasn't wearing his glasses). The Beast comes and asks Scott what he's doing? X-Men don't kill people. Scott says that he's just making a point. All the member of The Hellfire Club come into the room and get shot dead. Then Scott explains that they are all made up by Emma--had any of them seen any of the members at one time? Kitty is sent down to get Emma and bring her up to Scott.

Oh, and the Danger Room robot thing--I think she's just called Danger--is in the mansion fighting the two kids that were there, Wolverine, and Beast. Beast used a gadget to tear her apart, but when they left to go to Kitty, the robot started rebuilding herself.
