  1. Chris Hero says

    Dammit…I just heard a commercial on Jim Rome for this. We don’t talk sports in your comics world, Marvel, so please stay out of our sports.

  2. says

    Well I am proud to say I AM going to one. To each his own, have fun not going out, I guess.

    Marvel marketing must be better than dc if you are hearing commercials for A vs. X . Never saw a thing for dc and they said it was going to be a big marketing blitz. I will be heading to Flying Colors to pick up mine.

  4. greg says

    Congratulations, Chris Hero. You were “FIRST!” And, surprise, you made a sarcastic, snarky, anti-mainstream comics comment. You’re now the embodiment of a typical, whiny, online fanboy. You must be so proud.

  5. Wraith (AKA Blade X) says

    Having a launch party for a comic that is partly recycling an old story idea from over 20 years ago is pretty lame/corny, IMO.

  6. Chris Hero says


    I wasn’t trying to be first, it just worked out that way. And my comment wasn’t sarcastic…. unnecessarily snarky, sure…and in no way anti-mainstream comics. Just because I’m proud to say I won’t be running out to a comic shop for a Marvel comic doesn’t mean I’m anti-Marvel comics. If people like them, go for it.

    Really, I’m more upset Marvel had a lame ad on the radio during Rome. It was kinda cringe-inducingly bad…so much so I’m not going to give them props for trying.

    For real…anyone going to one of these….please don’t let my earlier bad mood interrupt your good time. I truly hope you guys have a smashing good time. I’ve done dorkier things, so I’m no one to judge!

    I’m sorry for my snarky comment. It had no place here.

    @citizencliff: judas priest’s “hell bent for leather”? yeah, i could see that (very funny), tho’ i’m thinking more along the lines of “breaking the law, breaking the law” or maybe “sinner” (for those who remember priest’s earlier stuff). :)
    while i agree with wraith that’s it’s hard to get exicited over a plot device that’s been done to death over the years (tho’ i will be picking the books up and give them a try), i don’t see how heavy promotion of any comic book is a bad thing.

  8. Charles says

    To each his own but I’m actually quite impressed by the hype Marvel has created for this. Personally, I’m more excited by what’s coming after the event with creative line up changes and what not. I’m also going to read AVX for the Infinite comics thing.

    George: “sex parties with psylocke cosplayers?”

    Hmmm … I think I’d be totally down for that.

  10. rich says

    Of course, I wouldn’t mind seeing a few Jean Greys, Storms, and a Kitty Pride.
