If we don't get Nova vs. Gladiator out of this I'll be very sad.

Given Nova's recent portrayal, Gladiator should probably kick his ass.

They can put it under the X-Men banner as well.

If anything can take comics back over a million copies per issue, it's that.

I would love it if it becomes an Annihilation book.

DnA on something like this sounds hella awesome, but the only way I'm going to be truly pleased with this is if not only Vulcan gets anuskilled at the end of this, but all of the freaking dumbass Shi'ar as well.

@#$%ing Shi'ar...wish someone would prophesy the end of those clowns...

Okay... totally stoked. I've enjoyed Nova, but GotG has really fallen flat for me and I was debating on dropping it after Secret Invasion... but I'm definately going to stick with it now until War of Kings plays through. As a Cosmic Fan, and an X-Men fan, this is really something that's got me hyped.

This looks very promising.

I doubt if its annhilation related. My guess is that will be a different story a year or so from this.

Hopefully nova rips gladiator a new one.

What's wrong with the Shi'ar as a whole race? They're just another cosmic space civilization. Plus, the Imperial Guard is kind of badass.

What's wrong is that they're such giant douchebags. My goodness. They're more elitist and arrogant than the Kree, more callous and destructive than the Skrulls, and more anachronistic and outdated than humans. Especially in recent years, it's like everything they touch, they ruin with their douchedom. Every time they ever show up in an X-book -- whether it's under Morrison, or Pak, or Claremont, or Brubaker, or Yost -- you know that they're going to **** something up big time with their arrogance and stupidity, all the while everyone for some reason seems to portray them as some sort of ideal apex of galactic civilization. Yeah, no. I hope they all die.

The problem with the Shi'har...

Is they are "sheltered X-garbage"

Its not there own fault persey, as much as an extension between the clear cut super stupid seperation betwen marvel mainline- and X-stuff.

I LIKE the characters in the Shi'har ( although ive never understood why the superpowered ones looked human)...

Its just that they have a coddled place in MU

So, basically, Black Bolt vs. Vulcan in space and Nova & the GOTG are caught in the middle. Hmm. Seems a bit like someone decided, "Hey, we have a bunch of concepts that haven't been selling too well, like the Inhumans and Vulcan-without-Brubaker, let's smush them in with the space stuff!" I'm frankly amazed the Eternals aren't involved.

Anyway, it could be good, I guess. I just hope that the better characters aren't left with supporting roles again like in CONQUEST. It too DnA too long to find their legs with Adam Warlock and Phyla.

I agree with BrianWilly about the Shi'ar. They're the ****-heads of the universe. If the Kree and the Skrulls could agree on anything, it should be mutual hatred of the Shi'ar, who once ruled over both. Now both races are weaker and the Shi'ar by default are still a major space power.

Well, yeah, they're douchebags. They've always been douchebags. They had the audacity to just decide they're gonna kill off the Phoenix in the name of universal safety. You'd think the Nova Corps or whichever lackey Epoch was employing at the time would've stepped in and gone, "Um, guys? Kinda pushing into my territory there." But I enjoy them on that level, much like I enjoy Tony Stark. And before you say, "Tony has his good sides and he's not so one-dimensional," recall that Lilandra did her best to try and make the Shi'ar live up to their surprisingly incongruous reputation as paragons of galactic civilization for a long, long time, and the Imperial Guard has acted heroically, like, almost as often as they've acted as antagonists.

But, at the end of the day, the best reason to read War of Kings is because it seems like Vulcan and the Shi'ar are the villains, which means they're totally gonna get their asses kicked and you're gonna love every second of it.

I'm looking forward to this..like alot.

A PO'd Blackbost vs. the powerful man-child Vulcan. Sign me up and all that jazz!

On top of that with a war like this brewing, it makes sense that Nova and the GOTG would show up and get caught in the middle of the mess. GOTG were formed to stop stuff like this happening that could threaten time/space, and Nova is just a hero that protects those that can't protect themselves, so getting in the middle of two powerful beings like this would be a no brainer.

I just want to see these battles:

Drax vs. Korvus
Black Bolt vs. Vulcan
Nova vs. Gladiator
GOTG vs. Imperial Guard

I'm going to be in cosmic geek heaven.

Nova vs. Gladiator? Unless he can somehow effect Gladiator's confidence, Richard is going to lose.

I mean, he's having trouble with body-swapping aliens who are ripped from THE FIRST POWER these days.

That's not the point. Nova couldn't win the fight, but it would be another opportunity to show how heroic Nova has become, even to the point of fighting a battle he knows he can't win, with the possibility of death, just for the sake of saving those who can't save themselves.
