Since it started The Astonishing X-Men has existed in a bubble, in its own continuity, and its own universe. Starting in April two new creative teams are working together for a new approach to this series that will break the X-Men up into two separate teams that are each on seemingly separate missions set in the standard Marvel X Universe. Rotating teams of creators Daniel Way and Christos Gage, and Jason Pearson with Juan Bubillo will tell the two stories. This new story arc also promises the introduction of a new character who will be extremely important in the X Universe by the end of 2011.
It all begins in Astonishing X-Men #37 where Wolverine, Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Armor do battle with giant monsters that are stomping their way through downtown Tokyo. Fing Fang Foom attacks and sends the X-Men into action minus Armor who is dealing with some personal issue. Christos Gage and Juan Bubillo step in for issue #38 where their team of Colossus, Beast, and Kitty Pryde fight off a Brood invasion. This story also features the return of Kitty Pryde’s old pet Lockheed and Agent Brand from S.W.O.R.D.
Deadpool #32 Writer: Daniel Way
Artist: Sheldon Vella
Release Date: January 26, 2011
I am not, overall, a Deadpool fan. I’ve only read a handful of issues of the main title and Merc With A Mouth, while also picking up a few Deadpool Team Up issues here and there. The comic book market has been saturated with Wade Wilson for years, and only one thing convinced me to pick up this book: the art. But I was pleasantly surprised when I actually made my way through the book.
This issue’s main story is about a mercenary, Macho Gomez, trying to kill Deadpool because he stole a kill that Macho was hired for. Turns out things didn’t happen as we are led to believe, and Deadpool has to make a decision about what he should do with his life. Will he stay a hero, or turn back to his mercenary ways?
