The Wolverine thing... He spends an entire story arc hunting down a magic sword designed to kill those with regenerative powers. Or something stupid like that.
I love the whole Wolverine Vs. New York State Board of Education. I think they got a nice team that isn't super overpowered. I didn't read X-Men: Regenesis, so I don't know who all is on what team.
So just read the last issue of Spider Island. Kind of good, though a bit sad since I liked that character in Peter's life (How do we do spoilers in this new forum?).
But I'm pretty excited for the new Scarlet Spider book. If it's the obvious choice from the last issue then I think it could be pretty good.
Unrelated, has anyone checked out the two core X-Men Regenesis books? I read and really enjoyed Wolverine and the X-Men, but haven't read the (apparently pretty good) Uncanny X-Men Regenesis. I really like the consequences of Schism, even if I didn't actually care for the event.
It's a shame, since Garth Ennis is a legitimately great writer, yet he wastes so much time on "shock", juvenile bullshit.
I read Aquaman #1-4 from the DC relaunch (via storytime on 4chan). Liked it so much I bought it digitally.Story's great, he's just a superhero who's this down-to-earth guy trying to do the right thing and make a living, despite everyone thinking he's a loser. Johns really makes it work by letting you get inside his head and making him genuinely sympathetic and relatable, all the while poking fun at the reputation Aquaman has, both in-universe and in the real world. The art is great, and there's plenty of badassery with Aquaman and Mera kicking the asses of Deep Ones style fish monsters from the abyss. I've long thought Aquaman was a wasted opportunity, and finally this story is exactly what I think a solid cape comic should be.For the record, I'm solidly in the camp of "there are no cool/boring characters, just good/bad writers."
