Heya, Ryan! (Can I call you Ryan? It's either that or Agent Taco X. Anyways...) I just finished re-reading AvsX & I was wondering, was I the only one seriously hoping Scarlet would legitimately kill off Scott for good? Then again, I've never been a huge fan of the boy scout, nor have I started reading Vol. 3 of Uncanny so I don't know how terribly important his "new" character arch is. Is there any big character that you simply don't care for or get easily annoyed by in general?

My distaste for Gambit is well documented. Although, I dug his recent solo series and Peter David is grudgingly making me enjoy him in All-New X-Factor. 

Don’t hate on Slim. I wasn’t a huge Cyclops fan, but he’s become a pretty interesting character of the last few years.

"Hey. Logan. Hey. Hey. Hey, Logan. Hey. Logan. Logan. Loooogaaaaaaan. Hey. Hey. Hey hey, Logan. Logan? Logan! Hey! Hey. Hey, it’s Scott. Hey."
Cyclops just loves annoying Wolverine.

You’ll be hearing tons about Marvel NOW! in the coming months. This image, by Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, is a cool teaser and just the tip of the iceberg. Read the full interview on and stay tuned to and the Marvel social channels during Comic-Con next week for more! Who do you think should be on the Uncanny Avengers team?

via marvelentertainment:


Beginning in October 2012, Marvel starts a bold new chapter in its history, with Marvel NOW!, a publishing initiative extending into 2013 that will touch every major Marvel character from the Avengers to the X-Men to Spider-Man to the Fantastic Four and beyond. spoke with Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso and Senior VP – Executive Editor Tom Brevoort to get all the details on what to expect from Marvel NOW! In your words, what is Marvel NOW!?

Axel Alonso: Marvel NOW! is the next chapter in the ongoing saga of the Marvel Universe. From October through February, we’ll provide at least one great reason for readers—old, lapsed or new—to go into a comic store each week: a new issue #1, featuring an exciting new creative team and driving concept, that’s an easy entry-point into the Marvel Universe. Each and every one of these launches is built to last.

Tom Brevoort: Marvel NOW! is a coordinated creative refresh across our entire publishing line, a unique moment in which the creative reins on virtually all of our quintessential series are being passed from one person to another. As a result, there’ll be both the excitement and uncertainty of seeing a new creative partnership handle characters and series that have been in other hands consistently for many years. And at the same time, this is the perfect instance for readers both new and lapsed to dip their toes back into the Marvel pool, in that all of these creators are going to be beginning their story-cycles during this time, so it’s about a clean a point of entry as there’s ever likely to be.

Joe Quesada: Marvel NOW! is the next step in Marvel story evolution and character evolution. It’s not a reboot. It is a universe-shifting catch-all, which really just tells fans that if you enjoyed Avengers vs. X-Men, get ready for what the outcome is because there’s some major, major changes coming to the Marvel Universe. A lot of changes to the character status quos, alter egos, costumes, creator shifts, design shifts, the way that we do our covers, digital shifts and the way we start delivering our books. We’re continuing with our evolution push as we start to embrace more and more of the digital world and its technology; the sky’s the limit with Infinite Comics, AR, and all sorts of things. As the technology changes we’re going to change with it and our fans are going to eventually tell us what it is that they really love out of all those things that we’re playing with. But it’s a big shift because it’s not just story and character. There’s also the way we tell our stories and the way we deliver our stories that are starting to change as well.

Marvel Super Heroes: What The—?! Avengers vs. X-Men Part 3 - “Uncivil War”

The big, INCREDIBLY VIOLENT, end to our AvX What The trilogy. This is definitely one of my favorite episodes of the series. Great work by Alex Kropinak, Ben Morse, Jesse Falcon & crew.

Also, I voiced Deathlok in what is surely a Cable Ace Award-worthy performance.

Also, also, watch through the credits for epic Deadpool action.

Marvel Super Heroes: What The—?! ”Avengers vs. X-Men” Part 1

"He has the hots for my dead wife." Oh, Cyclops.

Asker rstroupe Asks:
Dear Agent M, Cyclops is my favorite Marvel character, but he seems to get the most hate due to his "boy scout" nature. I have't read Schism and the most recent events on the X-Men, but do you foresee him becoming a more favorable hero in the future?
agentmlovestacos agentmlovestacos Said:

DUDE. If you truly loved Cyclops, you’d be reading his rise to ultra-badass-mutant-general over the past few years. Particularly in Schism and UNCANNY X-MEN, he’s just the man. Read up on all that and then get ready for AVENGERS VS. X-MEN. Seriously.

Hello! I've noticed all your comic help so I was wondering if you could clarify some things for me. So I've started the uncanny x-men with the 1st volume of Uncanny x-men essentials, its new series Regenesis, and X-men Schism. After reading Schism I got a little confused. So I know they split stories. Is Generation Hope with Wolverine? And what happened to Magneto and Xavier? What should I read to get all this information and any others you would suggest? Thank you!
agentmlovestacos agentmlovestacos Said:

Hello! Welcome to the wonderful world of the X-Men. (We hope you survive the experience.)

Have you read all of SCHISM? The X-MEN: REGENESIS one-shot by Kieron Gillen & BIlly Tan lays out a good chunk of who stays on Utopia and who goes with Wolverine. Idie from Generation Hope goes with Wolverine, while the rest of Hope’s crew stays with Cyke. Magneto’s ALLLL Cyclops—Maggy feels that Scott’s really on point. I’m writing this while on a plane to LA, so I don’t remember off the top of my head what happened to Xavier. He’s probably thinking about Lilandra or something.

Anyway, I’d really suggest picking up all the Regenesis issues. UNCANNY X-MEN #1 and WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #1 are the big tentpole issues for each side. But past that, Team Wolverine has X-MEN: LEGACY, X-FACTOR, UNCANNY X-FORCE, while Team Cyclops has NEW MUTANTS (so so so good), GENERATION HOPE and X-MEN. 

Oh, and read X-CLUB. It’s one of my favorite comics we’re currently publishing.
