Nothing for me this time.

Interested in reading when they get put up on the Marvel website:

INCREDIBLE HERCULES #136
IRON MAN: IRON PROTOCOLS (ONE SHOT)
MARVELS PROJECT #3 (OF 8)
NOMAD: GIRL WITHOUT A WORLD #2 (OF 4)
UNCANNY X-MEN #516
WEB OF SPIDER-MAN #1
X-MEN FOREVER #9

Just read X-Men Forever #1 on the Marvel website (it just debuted this week). I once had a friend who said that the Marvel universe turned to crap with X-Force #1. Another similarly minded friend said that for him, the Marvel Universe ended with X-Men (1991) #3. As for myself, I realize now I'm more in love with the costumes and the personalities of the X-Men heroes from this era, not necessarily with the return Chris Claremont's writing (though it's not bad). This would be better if Claremont was forced to recognize other events of the 90's Marvel Universe: I take it in the "Claremont-verse", there would be no Onslaught, which would lead to no Heroes Reborn...meaning the Avengers and Spider-Man corners of Marvel would continue to deteriorate (more teenage Tony, Clone Saga probably drags further on...) I'd like to see Claremont touch upon that, but that's not really his prerogative.

But still, this is entertaining as far as "What If's" go...

Ugggh, I couldn't disagree more. I consider Onslaught/Heroes Reborn to be the pinnacle of all that was wrong with 1990s Marvel - which makes "X-Men Forever" a great experiment in "What If we could go back and rewrite some of the suck out of the Marvel U?"

But "Heroes Reborn" led to "Heroes Return", which ushered in what I consider a New Age Of AWESOME for Marvel. I'm just saying Onslaught led to some good things, and without that...then how would the 90's have turned out? That's what Claremont should be going for, not focusing on whatever pet project storyline he had in mind for the Blue and Gold teams of that era...

The whole appeal of Forever for me is that Claremont can go about his business without having to worry about what's going on in other titles. I would also be pretty certain that when and if he does get around to using the FF and the Avengers, he'll use them as he sees fit, not necessarily in line with how they were being depicted at the time. His business here is telling his own X-Men stories, not trying to weave them around already established events of the 1990s.

Exactly. Just look at Nick Fury's supporting cast: they're the children of the Howling Commandos, not the actual Howling Commandos. And I'm not even offended by that, I actually kind of like it! :)
