To Save The World.

In reading whatever ongoing-daily-digest-of-news-in-the-world-of-comics it is that I read, I came across the following hackneyed little news heading:

To Save The World, One of these X-Men will die.

Excuse me while I vomit… and hope I don’t choke on it, as I seem to have nodded off, in my state of abject boredom.

This is typical of the reason I have gone almost entirely off X-Men, and mostly Marvel comics in general. (In fact, it puts me in mind of the humdrum, snore-worthy state of fantasy writing that smothers most bookshop speculative fiction departments).

The number of times these fucking bozos have extolled the virtues of their latest glory-boy word smith, who has agreed (in an industry-wowing coup) to come on board and revamp the entire Iron Man/X-Men/Avengers/Hulk/What-fucking-ever tired bloody series… Or they could even grab Bendis and have him alter the entire universe and cross everything over, in order to try to get us to read every bloody book they publish just so we can understand what is going on…

And said new wunderkind will shock us all by ending the life of one of the most beloved Marvel characters of all time… for the twenty seventh time… and when they are done with their run, the next guy will come in, and bring them back to life…

These people have clearly gone to the same schools as the Robert Jordans and the Raymond Feists of the Fantasy Fiction world, and can’t seem to find something new and interesting to do, but have to continue cashing in on the same old characters in the same old worlds, who by now are stretched as thin as King Kong Bundy’s overused underwear, and just as unpleasant to behold…
