Marvel Comics Thread


I always wondered this and I guess it just like the Hulk pants question. Wolverine’s bones are coated with adamantium, but what about his cartillage? Are Wolverine’s ears hard like metal or flexible like everyone else’s? For practical purposes, he needs his cartillage to be normal because if it were adamantium then he wouldn’t be able to bend his joints.

But if his joints ARE normal cartillage then he can be dislocated and separated at the joints. He wouldn’t be able to heal from that(his arms and legs being not actually connected to his body). Too much time on my hands.


I’m thinking about buying this…

Eventually get all the volumes. How are they quality (material) wise? Durable? Nice, clean feel?


I prefer the hardcovers myself. They are oversized so the art looks nice and they have a lot of extras that are not in the softcovers (especially for the first few volumes). The first 3 hardcovers are collected in one big hardcover called the Ultimate Spider-Man Collection from Barnes and Nobles. It collects #1-39 plus 1/2 and AF#15 as well as all of the extras. There are then 5 hardcovers after that currently out.


Got Mighty Avengers this week. I’m enjoying this more I did New Avengers. Nice to see the way the team operates on their first mission and how they interact. Miss Marvel, Wasp and Black Widow all stepped up into leadership roles.


Well guys i work in a comic store in downtown Manhattan and if you want to know whats going down im your guy on the inside biz. Anyways I read Captain America 26 the long awaited next issue and also read the new FF. I wont spoil it for anyone but both were goood reads.


This month’s Ultimate Xmen was actually the best one so far. I’m loving Kirkman’s take on the Morlocks. Good shit, so far. For some reason, Bishop can’t be trusted. There’s just something about him that make’s me think he’s up to something big.

Uncanny Xmen was alright. The whole deal with the M’Kran(sp?) crystal and Xavier was so fucking predictable.

Uncanny Spoiler


I predicted 12 issues ago that this would be the arc where he got his powers back, and guess what? Xavier get’s them back.

Other than that, the way things ended could only mean that there’s gonna be more Shi’ar stuff happening in the coming months. BTW, was this only a 12 issue run for Bru, or is he gonna stay on the book?

And am I the only person NOT enjoying The Mighty Avengers? It just feels like we have to sit through the dialogue and KNOW what the fuck they’re all thinking at the moment.

As for the Ultimates: Hawkeye was issue 13. 'Nuff said.

Fallen Son: Captain America was good. We got to see why Clint ended up joining the New Avengers.


Only read a few Marvel books this week.

Mighty Avengers - Tygra’s cameo was too good! :rofl:

Uncanny X-Men - Overall a good issue.



So Corsair died? Man Brubaker’s an assassin. RIP Corsair, you were gangsta… Still I loved where it left things off though. Havok and Polaris as Starjammers and is Hepzibah gonna become an X-Men? And Prof. X got his mental powers back (yeah it was predictable though lol) and he can walk at the same time, will he have these powers in time to face off against the Hulk in WWH? Arg this sets up some good stuff down the line, can’t wait to see how things play out!


just found this


Wow it’s like people really think he won’t come back to life sooner or later lol! Nice vid though.


Can anyone tell me which issue and comic this spider-man picture is from?


Marvel comics I read this week:

Friendly Spider-Man Annual - Freaking rules! A look back at Sandman’s life by the legendary Peter David! He even explained why Sandman let Spider-Man suck him up in a vaccuum cleaner in their first fight ever! :rofl: PAD for President!

Captain America - WHAT THE? Brubaker said there was gonna be an autopsy in this issue and I didn’t see it. Come on man I want to see Cap’s guts Six Feet Under TV Show style YEEEES! Good issue but I wanted to see the damn autopsy… scientists can’t find the ‘Soul Gland’ in the human body but what about the ‘Super Serium’ gland Cap has huh? HUH? Eh maybe next ish…

She-Hulk - HA! HA! HA! We finally get to see Tony Stark punk Shulkie, you don’t mess with MARVEL’S GREATEST VILLAIN (Copyright 2006 thru until Hulk kicks his Ass) and expect to walk away unscathed now that’s just crazy talk! :looney:

X-Men was fun. Like MC Hammer would say, STOP! SPOILER TIME!



So this Mystique / Iceman hook up is real I guess, I give it 2 months before Mystique does some messed up crap to mess it up. Still not sure if she lost her powers on M Day or not. Now if Rogue touches you, YOU DIE so that’s gonna be something to screw with her head big time when Satsui No Hadou Gambit returns next ish with the Marauders for the big 200th issue of X-Men throwdown oh yeah!


I’m not exactly sure. But if I had to venture a guess, I would guess that it’s from Spider-Man: Venom Vs. Carnage by Peter “I Need To Pay Rent” Milligan and Clayton Crain. That image certainly looks like Crain’s current style, and it’s got Venom and Carnage.


Are there any plans to make any civil war hardcovers? cuz i plan on getting the road to civil war, civil war, young avengers+runaways, and frontline tpb’s but if they come out with any HC’s which i prefer for exactly the reasons sano posted then i’ma be pissed so can someone shed some light.

Just finished reading ultimate ironman vol1it was a very different take on the pro-reg bastard it was a little slow at first but picked up after the bullies threw him in the incinerator n i noticed he can take his suit off so i’m assuming he doesn’t fuse with it via techno organic virus till much later on.


Nah, I have a feeling that at that time, he’ll be



Fixing Rogue, cuz apparently those Shiar brain-suckers made her go just a little bit crazy.

But hey, if Spiderman and Wolverine taught us anything, it’s that you can have 4 of your own solo adventures, while being in two different teams and still manage to get the job done.

And this month’s Cable/Deadpool made me sad.

cable/deadpool and Xmen


Seriously, the entire issue was about him prepping himself for taking down the Mummudrai and then like 3 pages into Xmen he just goes ‘go get him, Rogue.’ That and they do way too much Outlaw-related cock blocking. Either have her take off her top or don’t.

But none of that really matters…cuz I’m gonna KILL TONY STARK!


So at a local bookstore(books-a-million), they have some Marvel HC’s and Trades for buy 2 get 1 free. I already have/read most of the stuff they had, but I am curious about Ultimate FF since I’ve read the first trade and thought it’s ok.

Does anyone know if the series is solid enough for me to buy 3 trades of it? Should I save up the money and buy the Annilation Trade instead(even though I know SHIT about the characters in it) and just some other random stuff? Should I just say ‘fuck it’ and buy the Criminal trade instead(since Bru did it?)



response to sano


If she did lose her powers, the writers fucked up. Mutants who lose their powers are supposed to lose all aspects of the mutation (ie blue skin)


response to Adam Warlock, about Mystique


The thing is that she has not used her powers at all after M Day as far as I can tell unless I missed something. So I just don’t know either way. I think it’s just writers screwing with us unless I’m forgetting something… last time I remember her using her powers was the story when she tried to seduce Gambit that took place before House of M.


For Ult FF are you referring to the tpb’s or the hardcovers? I’ve read the first 4 trades and they are solid but not spectacular. I think you would like the Annihilation trade more. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know the characters since they treat everyone to a new introduction.

Criminal has a trade already?


Yup, the first CRIMINAAAAAAAAL!!!11 TPB, “Coward,” is already out.

Ultimate FF was all right. I’m with Giddy on this one- the Ellis run is solid, but it probably won’t blow you away or anything. It’s not Ellis’ best work, but it even Warren Ellis’ “I Need To Pay Rent” comics are still better than average.

Is there an actual TPB for Annihilation? I thought they were releasing the whole saga as a trilogy of HCs?


Yeah, I assumed he was talking about the hardcovers, of which the first two volumes are out
