    I know, there are a lot of threads like this lately... BUT!

    Mine is different. You see, I love what's happening in the comics. I am extremely pleased with all of the special events and all of the comics to which I subscribe.

    BUT **** THESE SPOILERS! I was reading a comic and it had a SIGNIFICANT spoiler to the next issue of X-Factor. A lot of you may know what I'm talking about. I'm tired of Joe Q blowing the ending of every comic just to boost sales.

    That is like telling the ending of The Sixth Sense in the previews to get people to watch the movie. IT IS ****ING ANNOYING. There was no spoiler tag, and no way to avoid that ****.

    I HATE SPOILERS. I do NOT want to know what happens in the next issue of Planet Hulk, or the Ultimates, so I won't go to forums about those things. But how the hell am I supposed to know that there are spoilers inside of a comic that I bought for a future issue of something that I read every month.

    **** you, Joe Q.

    Hmm... I was going to blow you off and tell you you probably shouldn't be visiting a message board where about three quarters of the conversations are all about upcoming things in the comics if you don't want spoilers, but if it was in a comic itself, that seems kind of lame. It happens from time to time. I haven't noticed a whole lot of spoilers within the comics themselves, though.

    I've noticed a lot of X-Books have been doing the whole "bar with titles coming out this month" thing and noticed that they have been putting a lot of spoilers in there.

    After all, that's where the Banshee dying in DG spoiler was (there have been others too, just can't recall off the top of my head).

    Joe Q is hardly the source of all spoilers, I'm not even sure what spoiler you're talking about, how do you know Quesada is responsible?

    Yea, another I hate Marvel thread. How original.

    Maybe you could tell us the spoiler that has so enraged you. Because I bought and read that issue, and I have no idea what you're talking about.

    You know what I hate. People who can't control their ****ing potty mouth. It's ****ING ANNOYING. So, **** you, fill-in-the-blank.

    (I said fill-in-the-blank because I don't really want to insult someone, even by accident :) )

    This has nothing to do with the most recent issue. It is about the NEXT issue, #7.

    Here it is if you don't care:
    Banshee dies in the next issue.
    You can find this on the fourth to last page of Astonishing X-Men and some other books.

    And yes this is original because I don't hate Marvel. I love Marvel, I'm just pissed that they would spoil somthing this substantial in an ad.

    And no, I don't know that it was Joe Q's fault, but he is notorious for leaking spoilers just like this one to boost sales. I would be more inclined to by a title that constantly surprised me like DD's most recent turn of events. X-Factor does that in almost every issue so far, and I'm sure PAD would have surprised the hell out of me if I didn't know about this already.

    The same with the FF thing.
    Someone is going to die! As it shows a picture of the cover where it is obvious who will die by who is in the foreground.

    To me that is blatant disrespect to the ones who buy the issues.

    Didn't
    Banshee already die in Deadly Genesis? Or do you mean Siryn?

    Look, they face the same dilemma that movie studios face: How much should we show them? What good, sales-wise, is a big surprise if no-one knows it's coming. On the other hand, it's no longer a surprise if they use it to advertise. I was popping out of my eyes crazy when I saw Colossus return. And they probably would've upped their sales by 10-15K if they had let the cat out of the bag. If they had ruined the surprise, I would have been disappointed, but I hardly think it's a reason to cuss someone out.

    Um? Wtf? Banshee is already dead, he died in the second issue of Deadly Genisis I believe. They are just saying how Siryns reaction will be.

    Lame.....

    Well... I am a dumbass. I was thinking Rahne for some reason! :o :(

    At least nothing got spoiled!

    I'm going to go jump off of a cliff now.

    You're not a dumbass. You were able to admit you were wrong. That puts you in the top 10 in my book. (Of course, I am a dumbass, so take that for what it's worth.....)

    It's a bit too emasculating. Could we maybe settle for a group dogpile with unrestricted kneeing and elbowing?

    eh, let's not. I'm wary of you now that I've learned of your fetish.

    What you call a fetish I call a healthy exercise in Morrison worship. Don't judge me. :o

    Because we were speaking in the context of Morrison poop already.

    I think when you're talking about poop, you can't assume context has been established, you always should be very specific.

    Marvel is doing everything it can to keep fans on a short leash.
