He is? Bummer. :-[

I hope the Word Tour Arc will be decent. I'm a Doom fan, so I expect Latveria to look posh and clean. Now that Victor's back, that mess after Secret Wars should be cleaned up now.

Manuel Garcia is a Spanish artist who has drawn for 'Avengers' and 'Mystique' at Marvel, 'Robin' and 'Spectre' at DC and 'Star Wars Galaxy' at Dark Horse. He is also present at Semic France with 'Strangers', 'Zembla' and a comic adaptation of the video game 'Motor Mayhem'. (http://lambiek.net/artists/g/garcia_manuel.htm)

You "Storm folks" aren't "invading". You're merging  Afterall, now that the lovely Ororo is married to King T'Challa, you "Storm folks" are family  ;)

Ahhhhh, but the RoLo faithful....

Once those RoLos accept the fact any sensual roll of thunder in the distance they might hear in the future is not the sound of "Kendall Munroe" under construction but is more likely heralding the arrival of a brand-spanking new "T'Charming" Royal Wakandan bundle of Joy, they'll be just fine  :)

I hope Mr. Eaton is simply taking a well-deserved vacation following what I anticipate will be a masterstroke of artistic genius in Black Panther #18.

Maybe the RoLo faithful should change their dietary preferences. Try something low cal.  ;D "Low cal". That's it! LoCal

Logan loves Callisto. It's a love match! I will begin beating the drums for a Logan/Callisto romance and wedding right now  :D

Garcia does look very nice. I believe that the majority of talent out there today is probably the best that it has ever been. Reading a comic book today is often a veritable feast for the eyes.

Now, now. Calm yourself. I meant no offense.

Truly, I have only the best interests of Logan and Callisto at heart when I suggest that they might actually find a measure of happiness with one another. Afterall, they have so much in common already.

Both Logan and Callisto are hairy, homicidal and homely. I'd be willing to bet hard-earned money that LoCal would produce a drop-dead gorgeous offspring that would put this "Kendall Munroe" to shame.

Just pretend my idea is like the hair on Wolverine's back. Give it a chance to grow and let's see what develops.

I'm just having a little fun with ya Toya  ;)

Digressing for just a moment from King T'Challa and his lovely bride, Queen Ororo....I'd like to say something about Logan and his love life. I believe that Scott Summers has insulted Jean Grey one too many times and that when she is resurrected, she and Logan should become a serious item. I wouldn't mind one little bit if someday soon, we could be seeing Luke Cage, Nightcrawler and T'Challa planning a bachelor party for Wolverine on the eve of his marriage to Jean Grey.

Agreed.  Wolverine even romanced Jean in the movie adaptation XIII (or at least was the love interest).  Think they would be more compatible as she is his true love or is it Yoriko (the Asian woman from UXM 171 & 172).

I think you're referring to Mariko Yashida. Logan definitely loved her but, like Jean, she's dead. And unlike Jean, she doesn't have the mutant ability to resurrect herself.
Title: Re: World Tour Arc
Post by: stanleyballard on July 28, 2006, 07:50:57 am
Yes, Mariko.  BTW, Jean does not have the mutant power to resurrect herself ....the Phoenix force brings her body back...she simply telepathically cried out to the universe as she was dying.

Back on topic, looks like this World Tour Arc is going to be great and possibly an explanation as to why the Watcher appeared at the wedding.

Scott has had multiple opportunities to be with and love Jean in the way a man who truly loves a woman should do.

Instead, Scott was telepathically seduced by Psylocke, even allowing himself to be mesmerized by that woman while in the presence of Jean. You all probably recall the X-Men issue in which that occurred. It was the same issue in which Gambit, meaning to hit Bishop with a pie that Rogue had baked, threw it at him and missed. Instead of hitting Bishop, Gambit succeeded in hitting Rogue smack in the face.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Emma Frost telepathically seduce and engage in what could only be described as "mind sex" with Scott while Jean was still living? If Scott allowed himself to be seduced in that manner, he has lost all of my respect and support. When Jean Grey is resurrected, she should give Logan the opportunity to give her everything she's missed with Scott Summers.

Count me as among the first on the "Lo-J" bandwagon. "Lo-J" It reads like the "bizarro" version of J-Lo doesn't it?

Grr, I ought to...agree with you. I've reached the conclusion that in fact it is going to conclude with: Scott & Emma and Logan & Jean pairings which makes sense in regards to the character's history. Marvel kinda jacked up Phoenix's power to the point where bringing her back as a superhero makes all other superheroes obsolete. Anycase, when they figure something out, Jean and Logan can have their supressed romance. Lol, maybe a twist that Cable or Nate is Logan's. I kidd.

There's always hope for the Ultimate universe! Ha, RoLoers shall have their day. Muhahahaha.

Agreed.  Never liked Cyclops that much and his only reason for being there is because he was given the status of Field Leader by Professor X....in contrast, Storm earned it and even took it in a new direction during her XTreme XMen run and directly challenged Prof X and his new methodology.  

And yes Cyclops did allow Psylocke and Emma Frost to come on to him and he could have rebuffed both.  In fact, he didn't wait more than 6 months before he was sexing or dating another female during the original UXM #137-138 climax to the Dark Phoenix story.  He started dating a Blonde female around issue # 147...her name was Lee.  

Back on topic....Storm fought Dr. Doom way back in UXM #145-147 and he entombed her in some type of statue and she became enraged and almost caused an unstoppable & destructive weather blitz.  A re-match is overdue.

Summers is weak. Both Scott and Alex. They both are loved by fine women. They both have messed over those fine women while chasing the skirts of "Lucy-come-latelys". It appears that Polaris has given Havok the old heave ho and once she returns, Phoenix should do the exact same thing to Cyclops.

Really looking forward to the Honeymoon Tour. Doom is a true giant among Marvel Comics miscreants. He will be a stern test for the fledgling Wakandan Royal tandem. Even if they should lose, they're both so attractive that they'll look good in the losing  :D

What?!

Given "normal Atlanteans the ability to breathe on the surface"?!

Whoever that writer is, it is obvious that he is lacking in the capacity to pay attention to detail, otherwise he wouldn't be playing "fast and loose" with the Atlanteans.

Anyone who read Sub-Mariner's battle with Paul (Destiny) Destine would know from the experience of Lady Dorma, that a normal Atlantean has to take a pill which turns the color of their flesh from blue to white, enabling that Atlantean to breathe on the surface for a pre-determined period of time. However, if that normal Atlantean's flesh begins to revert from white to blue, they'll begin gasping for breath and will need to return to the sea as soon as possible.

How could Wolverine's new writer NOT KNOW THAT?!

He must be a Reginald Hudlin acolyte or something.

If he is, he's under fine tutelage  :D

I'm very much looking forward to the "Honeymoon Tour", especially the Royal Couple's stop on the Moon. I've always been a very big fan of the Inhumans.

I don't read Wolverine religiously but I've flipped through the last couple of issues in the store. As I recall, the Atlanteans were shown using special breath masks at regular intervals and not having blue skin till they revealed themselves. I assume the mask is an aerosol version of the pill Dorma once took.

Also, in Bill Jemas's NAMOR series Atlanteans were shown wrapping a wet cloth around their gills which would change their skin color and allow them survive above water.

Thanks for clearing that up.

I wonder. Why don't any of Marvel's Atlanteans turn "yellow", "black", "brown" or "red" when they undergo the physical changes that allow them to breathe on the surface? Why dey always got to be "white"? I've read accounts and have watched documentaries dealing with the lost continent of Atlantis and its culture. As I understood it, the continent was huge as continents go, and it had a multi-racial civilization.

Now, there are some who believe that "Black Avengers" could present problems. But the Atlanteans have been either blue or white for decades and nobody has a problem with that? I"m sorry. That's a topic best explored on the "Mighty Black Avengers" subject   :)

Speaking of Marvel's Atlanteans, it's too bad about Namorita (or whatever she was calling herself at the time of her premature demise). Just when she stopped looking like the "Barbie-doll formula" for the big-time superhero's lovely female super-powered cousin (see Superman and Supergirl)....just when her flesh turned blue, she began to establish her own identity separate from that of Namor and was beginning to become cool, that's when the folks at Marvel decide to kill her.

In Wolverine, the main Atlantean sleeper agent that's tracking down Nitro is first shown as a black surfer with long dreads prior to revealing his Atlantean hue.

Namorita's skin first turned blue in the original New Warriors series. She's gone back and forth based on writers' choices till her unfortunate death.

I was pretty pissed when they announced they were killing off the New Warriors (or what was left of them). That was the first comic I had followed from issue #1. Though I almost dropped it when Mark Bagley jumped ship for Spider-Man. Jerk.

Atlantis is a myth. It was re-told by Plato, who heard it from Egyptian and other seafaring Mesopotamian sources. So its people could have looked like anything, depending on interpretation. One writer claims the Mayan civilization was built by descendants of the Atlanteans, whose continent resided around the Caribbean Sea. My favorite is the belief Atlantis is not underwater, since there is no evidence of such a large landmass in the Atlantic. It's really the continent we call South America and the ten kingdoms were spread all across it.  :D

Colin, you are a wealth of information. My ignorance is greatly endangered by your presence  :)  Thanks.

Aha. Yes. I always knew Atlantis was a mythical concept, though many have tried to push the notion that the continent and its civilization actually existed at one time. They're like those people who believe that sasquatch, faeries, UFOs, sea monsters, ghosts and all the other things that amuse us, frighten us and entertain us are real  :)

You forgot the continet now called North america, was originally called atlan. The myth of atlantis is based on white suprermacy and theose people trying to act like they had a high culture and civilization comparable to the ancients nubians who colonized the entire planet, not with arms but with knowledge.

It's really the continent we call South America and the ten kingdoms were spread all across it. 


You forgot the continet now called North america, was originally called atlan. The myth of atlantis is based on white suprermacy and theose people trying to act like they had a high culture and civilization comparable to the ancients nubians who colonized the entire planet, not with arms but with knowledge.

I don't know if it's originally based on white supremacy since Plato just retold it to his Greek audience. Artistic licenses could have introduced pro-Aryan nuances. I don't know who called North America 'atlan'. But I know the people who lived there didn't. You'll find the same for others like the ancient Egyptians didn't call their land "Egypt" and the ancients of "Ethiopia". In Jim Allen's South American theory archeologists in Bolivia found an ancient alloy amongst the ruins of a dead civilization. It could be the Atlantean orihalcon metal. The Bolivian alloy predates earliest alloys made in the West. And in the native Bolivian tongue 'atl' meant water, and 'antis' for copper, maybe referring to the orihalcon alloy. Those two words associated with Atlantean myth create "Atlantis".

Of course, for pro-Aryans there's no myth better than that of "Ultima Thule". The Thule Society of the Nazis believed in it. It's also a part of the Hollow Earth fantasy. And I mean fantasy because we now know the planet isn't hollow.

But there's nothing wrong with burying a few Nazis underground! Hehehehehe!
