SO SICK OF MOHAWK STORM
sKeemAn - 5/7/2014, 3:41 PM
I'm loving that they got Storm back to her classic mohawk. Its really sheik.
ckal - 5/7/2014, 3:41 PM
So Wolverine will still be alive at least in June eh?

Just kill him and get it over with Marvel. Wolverine hasn't been Wolverine for a long time.
KINGPEN266 - 5/7/2014, 3:43 PM
WHAT ABOUT CORN ROLLS STORM INSTEAD THAT MOHAWK IS SO 80s
DoubleD - 5/7/2014, 3:47 PM
Storm with long hair is the CLASSIC look
GURILLAPUD - 5/7/2014, 3:48 PM
Storm look like shit, with that dumb ass mohawk.
blackandyellow - 5/7/2014, 3:48 PM
Looks like Colossus slipped a finger into someplace Nightcrawler wasn't expecting one.
TheBaroness89 - 5/7/2014, 3:49 PM
Def will pick this story arc up.

Like the artist, like the writers...

Despise the "creative" decisions of Marvel Comics far more.
Karmatron - 5/7/2014, 3:57 PM
@Black and yellow I was thinking the same man! jajaja

Oh wolverine I used to like you in the Japan Saga, The late 70's and 80's X-men, even middle of the 90's.
I even liked the Origins story that explained your then misterious past.
Enemy of the state and old man logan were great!

And then you became a softie, they turned you into a hypocrite in SCHISM and you just have not been the same... now they are taking away your healing factor.

Please die already and be reborn the way you were...

This is the moment I realized I think I'm good not reading marvel comics anymore.
SidTheSloth - 5/7/2014, 4:12 PM
Lol at Wendogo's flowing locks of platimum hair in @magnus's pic.

I love it.
Karmatron - 5/7/2014, 4:13 PM
This is the moment I relaized I hate new 52 with exception of Batmanverse and Green Lantern Verse

Please, please DC make a New!-Crisis and destroy 52; get back to the old universe pleaseeee

Ed McGuinness is one of those artist who has really started coming into his own as of late.
SuperiorMrGod - 5/7/2014, 4:15 PM
@Mrsinister

I know the feeling. There not all bad though. Just the X-Men and Spidey comics are terrible.
GodzillaKart - 5/7/2014, 4:28 PM
@Magnus66: Not to mention the classic wolverine, before the [frick]ing stupid bone claws were introduced.
TowerOfOrthanc - 5/7/2014, 4:35 PM
wendigo could end up being so cool in a movie. him and mr. sinister need to be done. i don't think singer can avoid f*cking them up though
Karmatron - 5/7/2014, 4:43 PM
Godzilla I am guessing you did not like Fatal Attractions then man?
ThePowerCosmic - 5/7/2014, 4:43 PM
MrSinister

Moon Knight, Hawkeye, Daredevil, silver Surfer, black widow, Original Sin, Hickmans Avengers (sometimes) are all some of the best and most original stuff Marvel has put out in years. Look into it. Don't be so dramatic.
J0RELLC00LJ - 5/7/2014, 5:04 PM
@GLJeff - If they're underage I'm sure that's exactly what Singer will do...
Havensent - 5/7/2014, 5:55 PM
This looks extremely fun. Badass art.
JumpingSpider - 5/7/2014, 6:00 PM
I vote for Mohawk Storm. The punk/fashion model look suits her eccentric personality.
TheRationalOne - 5/7/2014, 6:11 PM
The amount of bitching on this site is disgusting. You should all just stop reading comics all together. You hate every single new decision that any writer makes just because it takes the characters in to a place you're not used to them being. Change and character progression are such scary ideas to you guys that you just sit around bitching about it. It's very pathetic.
dethpillow - 5/7/2014, 7:03 PM
@PowerCosmic - totally, Hickman's Avengers and New Avengers have been on a roll going into and coming out of Infinity. great stuff. loved the end of last year's Secret Avengers too.

Superior just wrapped up a 31 issue streak of pure killing it.

Hawkeye is amazing stuff,

Thor's killing it when it does. We're actually lucky to be seeing some of these Thor stories coming out recently. Not every arc, but the ones that hit, really hit.

new Moon Knight, Iron Fist and even Electra looks possibly promising.

Remender's Uncanny Avengers and Cap books are hit and miss, but at the best, pure old fashioned comic book insanity exactly the way it's supposed to be.

as for X-Men... that's the big one that needs the most attention right now, they need to do some pruning on the X-Men tree. it's getting hairy and too much, too little. Uncanny and All-New do the best job, i think, but yeah, that's a problem.

but Fraction and Mike Allred just laid down something u own't see happen very often with last year's FF, and Silver Surfer is more Allred and something that's really interesting to see where it goes.

oh yeah, and Daredevil... gimme a break, that's just pure good comic book writing.
what the hell with the people here sometimes?
Marvel is goddam killing it right now. I didn't even mention all of Spencer's issues of Superior Foes.
dethpillow - 5/7/2014, 7:09 PM
i guess tho, actually thinking about it, it sounds like I'm saying someone's crazy for not liking Marvel, which isn't what I mean...
it's just some of these comments... haven't u guys figured it out yet?
SniktBub - 5/7/2014, 7:44 PM
@TheRationalOne- actually I like the books and stories. It's just that the direction Marvel is going placing money and quantity over quality is a terrible decision IMO. We've had 3 Wolverine #1s over the past 2 years. Im sure a lot of people will agree the Marvels heading in a bad direction
DrDoom - 5/7/2014, 8:00 PM
Mohawk Storm is shit. On the other hand, it's great to see Wendigo getting some action.
jimoakley666 - 5/7/2014, 10:15 PM
Beautiful artwork and a fantastic cover. This looks like a lot of fun. Proper comic fun.

I can't believe some people don't like the mohawk on Storm. Must be too young to remember it first time around.

Going to enjoy these comics as much as possible before I give up when the dunces at Marvel kill off their greatest character.
Natetrix79 - 5/8/2014, 2:38 AM
Marvel & DC are getting out of hand with these new #1's all the damn time, but don't just say it's Marvel doing it. I saw on here last week that Nightwing isn't Nightwing anymore & no he's a secret agent & he's getting a new #1.
pepe - 5/8/2014, 2:54 AM
Yet another story thats been done allready. World-X, did this as they Did the "someone shot the Watcher and take his eyes" storyline... And the "Blackbolt releases terigenmist on the world" story to
MrZurEnArrh - 5/8/2014, 5:42 AM
Looks Good, i just don't get the need for an army of Wendigo's! Classic Wendigo just by himself was pretty badass and really frightning! I remember him taking on The Hulk, Alfa flight and the X-men! No need for more Wendigo's, it just takes the carachter's mystic!
PsyGuy - 5/8/2014, 7:31 AM
You guys should check out the new X-Men original graphic novel that came out yesterday, "No More Humans".

It's actually really good
rabid - 5/8/2014, 8:52 AM
If they really wanted to kill off Wolverine: a fatal Canadian fight between him, a wendigo, and a hulk would make good sense.
