Re: X-Men: First Class Finals #4

Beast's costume is actually a colouring error, if you look closely - the belt and a couple of other details match his blue and red costume, not the pre-UX 39 costume. Presumably Jeff Parker didn't know that would happen when he wrote the series (and it wasn't corrected for #2-onward because it woul...

Re: X-Men: First Class Finals #4

I have a bit of a problem with the dialogue between Cyclops, Jean and Angel about the uniforms. It implies that Iceman and Beast wore those outfits regularly, when this is actually the first time post-UX 40 they've been shown wearing them EVER. Iceman has NEVER worn an outfit that looks exactly like...

Re: Ka-Zar's son's name - where was it revealed?

Cyclops always called him Christopher because Nathan was the name of the bully at the orphanage who tormented Scott (who we find out was actually Mr. Sinister with added memory alteration). Either Cyclops simply refused to call his son Nathan because of that bad association or Madelyn officially add...

Jean met and talked with Ororo in both X:HY 6 & 7. It was only Scott who was unconscious and didn't get to meet her.

Re: Mary Jane Watson (nee Parker)

"nee" usually means "born" as in: "birth name"- a woman's last name before she married.

Re: Understanding the cosmics

Um... the "tri" part of Tribunal means 3 (as in Judge, Jury, Executioner). It's hard for artists to draw the 1/3 profiles of the two faces facing away so they just look like side (1/2) profiles. There is one face with the eyes showing, one with the eyes covered, and one that's completely covered. Th...

Re: Understanding the cosmics

Slightly confused... the Living TRIbunal having 4 faces? What?

Also, wasn't Dazzler (very) briefly a Herald of Galactus?

Re: X-Men/Spider-Man

Looks like things are narrowed down to the big guest appearance run between UX 325/X 45 (Iceman returns to the Mansion after the road trip that begins in X-Men: Prime) and UX 328/Sabertooth: Red Zone (Archangel's wings torn up by Sabretooth). UX 328 has a cover date of Jan 1996, which is the same fo...

*fishes out the issue, which he got for Ben-support without ever intending to read* Really? It sure looks like his natural wings to me. No, those are absolutely metal wings. Look at the double-page spread where Wolverine slashes at Carnage and Cyclops fires at Sinister - not only does he have the m...

Re: X-Men/Spider-Man

Archangel still has metallic wings but is wearing the blue & white costume which sounds like... sometime around the Onslaught era? The following is a costume gallery of Archangel. Does the costume you mention match Costume 10? See: http://www.uncannyxmen.net/db/spotlight/showquestion.asp?faq=10&fld...
