    I love what Mark said about Cyclops.

    It's so true, he really does think he's superman but has a voracious appetite for porn ****s.

    I love Joss Whedon. Would've loved to see him direct X3.

    Before I read Astonishing I also thought she was American. But she does seem really British in Whedon's book, even using phrases such as 'bloody', which to be honest I've rarely heard an american say (I'm english though). I imagine her with an englisg accent now anyways, I like it.

    As far as the read abpove goes I really enjoy, I could read/listen to Whedon all day long, the guy's just full of passion for anything sci fi related. Mark Millar's great too of course.

    She is from Boston. She just uses the accent because she wants to maintain the upper class image.

    Emma has an upper-class "Characters from Frasier" American accent. It's so proper, it sounds English.

    what im waiting to hear about is grant morrison's opinion on things since he left. i mean they've pretty much taken what he did and did a 180. the paramilitary black leather look went back to the superhero in colorful tights. the emma/scott relationship is slowly falling apart as emma and the hellfire club do their thing. and the "millions of mutants" thing with humanity being the minority has been reversed by decimation and we're back to the handful of mutants.

    not that im complaining, i really like the new direction better than the old one. i just wanna know what grant thinks of it.

    Morrison didn't have paramilitary black leather with his team. That was Austen. Morrison's X-Men wore teaching uniforms; a black sweater, sometimes with a yellow jacket over it.

    yea, and to be honest, the Astonishing team doesnt wear colorful costumes. Just tight blue and yellow uniforms. Its really not any better or different than the New X-men costumes in terms of colorfulness and superhero-ishness, but I think the New X-men costumes (especially Cyclops and Beast) look a hell of a lot better. Now they've become Condom-man and Diaper-man.

    Morrison has actually spoken quite a bit about the X-Men after having left it, it's just that none of the interviews were in big-name magazines so you'd have to search a bit for it...
