i’m giving it an “eh”. i prefer the movie for the telling the story of the cure. i liked how they got the cure in the movie. it just seems to be two random mutants in the comic. Also Cyclops looks like a condom.

and i really feel like when im in the home page that i need to scroll up and i can’t.

It was so dramatic! On the front page I could only see “I’m giving it an…” and who knew whether you’d be favourable or not? I was hoping you’d like it more than “eh” but there you go. I’ll put some thought into solving this front-page issue. Until then — don’t scroll up, it won’t work.

Mmmmm. The comic doesn’t turn out to be about the cure any more than the film is. Possibly less. But while I agree that the production of the cure is cooler in the film, I much prefer the X-Men’s responses to it in this.

I’m so not going to your chemist.

You can buy them anywhere these days. I just wouldn’t go into any store at all.

If there’s novelty x-men varieties it’s probably safest. I’d hate to see the Wolverine one.

Awww, now, I liked Gifted. Not so fond of the one after it. Dangerous is definitely ‘meh’ worthy. The most recent arc is amazing.

I didn’t like the cure in X3. Well, no I liked the idea of it but thought the execution sucked. The movie just didnt seem anything at all like the other two. Plus, what the hell was Rogue thinking!?!?! She’s been offered the cure and stuff like that multiple times in the comics and always turned them down. growls Silly film.

If you liked Gifted, then you’ll probably enjoy Runaways. Joss is gonna be taking over duties on it which should be very interesting. is such a geek

Hope y’all are doing well. :)

Hey hey hey! I knew it was worth reviewing a comic book. You never know who’ll crawl out of the woodwork…

I’ve heard ‘Dangerous’ is meh-ish. I’ll be buying it soon but I’m trying to space things out, since the third set doesn’t appear to be out yet. I’ve heard about this Runaways thing too but if I were to read those I’d have to read the preceding ones, too… So much work. My brother’s been putting me onto Fables which is awesome, by the way.

I’m right there with you on the Rogue business Jess. Though it must be said, in the comics she has more powers to give away. It was a lame end for a great and well-acted character though.

Oh, it most definitely was a horrible end.

I can send you the previous Runaways comics over the internet if you like. I have them as scans. :) Just let me know if you want them. Then you wont need to read them. Yeah, I’ve heard of Fables and eventually I’ll get around to reading that as well. I’m a bit to engrossed in the whole Civil War going on in the Marvel comics currently. :)

You should read Dangerous as it leads into the current arc and the things that are occuring in it are weird but interesting. :)
