Sometimes those stupid intro box things are funny, but mostly they are stupid. The best one I still read was "Rockslide-Made of Rock, Anole-Made of Awesome." I forgot what that was in.

Those caption boxes started off well enough...

"Cyclops--Scott Summers--Optic Blasts. Leader."

Then they just devolved into complete s***.

"Cyclops--Scott Summers--LOL, someone's got a case of the red eyes!"

they would have been more effective if used sparingly, not in every single issue he writes

it seems like we all have the same thing to say about each book every time: i like it, Havok is ready for Fraction to leave, Manic is somewhere in the middle, and Chris Moore wants Iceman. im thinking well have more to say once Gillen takes over completely.

I like the writing well enough, just not the character use.

Heh - javi, you're spot on. My major issue always has been not enough Iceman and weird power set balances in "field teams" hasn't it. Same old same old, with no change in sight

This is so true. For every time I praise something like Lovelorn, I need to bring up my undying hatred for Sisterhood.

i do. its not perfect (we can all agree Sisterhood sucked and we'd like to see more than just Scott and Emma) but im really enjoying the world the X-Men are living in right now. its the book i look forward to the most every month in my pull list (take that how ever you will, but its the truth). that being said im excited to see what Gillen has planned (things already seem to be off to a good start with 'Quarantine').

I just hope the X-Men don't move back to New York anytime soon. I'm usually against the editor in chief taking too much of a hands-on approach to running things, but I want Axel's tight-fisted grip all over the X-Men franchise so they'll stay in San Francisco like he promised back when he was just the X-editor.

Where the X-Men live has never bothered me, heck they could go back to living in the Australian outback and I wouldn't mind.

I just want seperate teams again so characters can get proper action/development like they used to.

OK anyone look at last weeks cover and think Land totally copied Pam Anderson in Barbwire seriously look at Emma. On a side not although I like the idea of the current arc it still isn't gripping me although Emma's subplot I like except for the love of God will Kitty get rid of that fishbowl on her head it only works for Mysterio lol.

First step to getting the X-men back to where they were is moving back to NY. I cant wait for tht to happen. I think its inevitable

i like the X-Men in San Fran. for that matter i liked the 50 State Initiative. Marvel can afford to have there heroes spread out beyond the 5 burrows.

UNCANNY X-MEN #533

Written by MATT FRACTION & KIERON GILLEN

Pencils & Cover by GREG LAND

“QUARANTINE” Part 4 (of 5).

The public gets what the public wants - and the public wants “X-Men.” The Sublime Corporation is here to provide, at a cost. Both financially and for the safety of the entire world. It's the gala product launch that everyone will be talking about. If only the actual X-Men weren’t dying of the power-sapping flu on Utopia so they could stop this.

32 PGS./Rated T+ ...$3.99

"Now, very strong. Obviously."

It's the texting, hipster way to speak. And annoying.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at the explosive first chapter of Escape From The Negative Zone from writer James Asmus and artist Nick Bradshaw. Taking place within the pages of Uncanny X-Men Annual #3, Steve Rogers: Super Soldier Annual #1 and Namor The First Mutant Annual #1 fans should strap in for the intergalactic blockbuster event of a lifetime! The X-Men find themselves trapped in the Negative Zone and with the remaining members of the Fantastic Four still reeling from their loss, they have no way home. But when King Blastaar finds out about his most unwelcome guests, only one man can save them and it’s none other than Steve Rogers himself!

“Escape From The Negative Zone will further define the Cyclops/Hope relationship that fans have been clamoring for as well as the relationship between the X-Men, Steve Rogers and the Avengers” explains Marvel Senior Editor, Nick Lowe. “Not to mention, this will be the first time that Steve Rogers and Hope meet, but certainly not the last! And for fans wondering what Namor is REALLY capable of, they’ll have their answer.”

Home to some of the most super-powered villains of the Marvel Universe, King Blastaar should be the least of the X-Men’s worries as their greatest threat is yet to come! Get started on all the action this March in Uncanny X-Men Annual #3!
