    I'll (or you) post Marvel news from WW Philly here, from Newsarama and other news sites. :)

    the screening isn't saturday, the tickets TO the screening will be given out saturday. or something

    me and my friend Mike, (who co owns one of philly's comic stores) went out drinking, and decided to stop by the Marriot, the hotel closest to the convention centre were most of the celebs are probably staying. We were hoping some people might be around the bar. it was active, and we saw some people we knew were geeks, but no big names. sat down and had a drink, and I spotted Quesada. Mike's met the man many times before, and they know each other on a professional basis, so we attempted to catch up with him but necessity to pay the bar tab held us up. we gave chase, having seen him leave the lobby with some friends, but weren't sure where he'd went, so we ducked into every bar in the vicinity to see if they'd gone there, but no sign. but, the weekend should be a blast, and I'm sure I will have many more interesting stories to tell when it's done

    Is that real? Because it's ****ing awesome if it's true.

    New Universe and 2099 are two of my favorite universes/timelines. I'd love to see a little of them.

    72-74 New Universe

    77-78 Squadron Supreme

    Oh, I saw the shirt in that Newsarama article but I didn't actually read what it said. I was too dismayed by the Super-New Un-Old Excalibur crap. :(

    Can't wait until they visit the Heroes Reborn world, or as it's known now, Planet Doom. :D

    Paul Pelletier, is that the guy doing GLA (and She-Hulk before)? Sounds Grrrrreat!

    I like the redesigns of Cap Britain and Juggarnaut. A little bit retro and still updated.

    I don't like Captain Britain's presence. What happened to Excalibur (the sword) and Otherworld? It looks like they're sacrificing all that just to toss him back into the stupid, muddled X-universe as just another face in the crowd.

    I do like the Juggernaut redesign though. The helmet's a little weird looking, but otherwise it's cool.

    Who's the guy in the middle? Is that the guy Kitty was having a fling with (Pete Wisdom or somesuch... I lost interest in Excalibur before all of that)?

    I'd like to hear what the concept for this is. I didn't much care for the recent Excalibur, and I like these characters.

    It looks like Pete Wisdom, but I haven't heard for sure yet.

    as far as complaints go, isn't that kind of petty. you don't like that they're putting Braddock back in the mix instead of retiring him to limbo so that no one else can read about him? yeah, it was cool that he was King of Otherworld. but it meant the end of his story in some ways. i think it's always better to let the story continue if possible. now, i would be angry if i were a huge fan of Kelsey Leigh, although i think she should have been created as just another UK hero instead of an actual 'Captain Britain.'

    I stopped reading Exiles soon after Austen came onboard but I might check out this 2099 story, I'm a fan of the line too.

    Have there been any 2099 stories after PAD's "Time Flies" story in Captain Marvel, not counting those 2099 one-shots that didn't seem to have anything to do with the original 2099 "universe"?

    Not that I know of.

    I'm a little more excited about the New Universe. I'm pretty sure it hasn't even been mentioned in any way since it appear in Quasar a long time ago.

    Why do they always say stuff like this and act like it's a good thing?

    :mad::confused:
