MARVEL IS SUICIDAL

During the early '90s, the Comic Industry collapsed and almost didn't survive. Many factors contributed to them, primarily SPECULATORS inflating the market. However, others factors included overuse of VARIANT covers, CROSSOVERS and CRAPPY CONCEPTS, just to name 3. Marvel was the worst offender and actually went bankrupt - 10yrs later, they are STILL trying to recover from that, as are comic fans really.

Well, it appears Marvel is suicidal and bringing back the 90s again. Fans have noticed lots of variant edition comics already. Soon the X-Men titles will once again be blended together in a full-blown title-wide CROSSOVER. And now.... in a clear sign that they have fucking lost their minds, they have announced the return of X-FORCE comprised of....sigh... WOLVERINE, X-23 (Wolverine's teenage-girl clone), WARPATH (with deadly sharp vibranium knives), CALIBAN (with deadly claws), WOLFSBANE (with deadly claws) and HEPZIBAH (with, er, deadly claws). All have hyper-senses, too. *sigh*

Could this team be any more REDUNDANT and lame?!!! For YEARS fans have made the joke of having an X-Team made up of JUST Wolverine-Type characters. Well, apparently Marvel didn't get the joke part. Good grief. I'm shocked they didn't hire LIEFELD to handle the art chores.

Look for the new X-FORCE in any 25-cent bin at your local comic store soon! Also look for fans running to the hills and away from the X-Books. The Marvel Offices needs an enema.

the only way Marvel could do worse is if some idiot had a not so bright idea to turn the Hulk a different color, red for arguments sake. I guess I might consider that worse than another X-title with no imagination. Yeah, red.
