I’m confused, wouldn’t either the original “time cancer” or the Exiles’ actions split those timelines up as that’s how time travel in Marvel works?

Part 1: I actually caught the Twilight Zone episode “The Parallel” during SyFy’s recent New Year’s marathon. 5:26- Blink would later appear in the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past. Combo Man looks like a cosplayer who can’t makeup his mind on who he wants to dress up as at Comic-Con, so he decided to pick them all. 14:12- “X-Men vs. Kickassia.” That should have been a thing. 21:09- HEY, HEY! Wolverine did the same thing in X-Men: The Last Stand, BUDDY. Part 2: 0:06- One day, I’m gonna get that filthy alternate reality animal! (THE END) 6:19- And this… Read more »

He doesn’t look anything like MST3K’s Observer! Everyone knows that, when Observers lose their brain bowls, they move to Wisconsin, work at a cheese factory, and become Raging Packers Fans! (“GO PACKERS! PACKERS, WOOOOO!”)

A NAZI BAMPIRE?

Where’s Police Girl when you need her? And please tell me the guy in the red trench coat is no longer stuck on the boat.

“Taken over Manhattan.”

Didn’t The Muppets do that?

A Humanoid Chicken? Take your pick:

1. “Heeeeh! Heeeeh! Heeeeh! Beware, Prince of Space! I have captured some Diffren!”

2. “I AM A MAN!” *PUNCH!*

3. “BOY… Ah say, BOY! Pay attent… I say, Pay attention, son!”

About The Butterfly Effect, where a butterfly in Japan changes the weather in New York: what most people seem to forget is that the Japanese butterfly has a 500-foot wingspan. She teams up with Gojira all the time.

I tend to love time travel stories so this was pretty interesting. Although, I don’t think that I’d want to read much from this series since it seems to have a super somber tone.

Morph’s costume and posture in some of the panels really remind me of One Punch Man.

The first 89 issues of Exiles is one of my all-time favorite superhero comic runs, right up there with Starman, Dan Slott’s She-Hulk, Secret Six, and DnA’s Marvel Cosmic books. The writing from Winick, Bedard and, surprisingly, even Austen is great, and it made me a die hard fan of the art of both Mike McKone and Jim Calafiore. Then Claremont steered the book off a cliff and it crashed so badly that not even Jeff Parker could save it. Some random thoughts: The character stuff was so good, especially the arcs of Thunderbird/Nocturne and Morph/Sunfire. Speaking of Morph, I’m… Read more »

Is it just me, or does the Timebroker look like Reggie from the Phantasm series?

“End of the Worlds”? Shouldn’t it be “Ends of the World”? Or is it “Ends of the Worlds”? Pluralses, precioussss…

One end. Many worlds.
The pluralisation is correct.

Is that Bizarro on the left at 20:19?

Wow, that was 53 minutes long! And we’re still not done?! This may be the longest review in history! Yeah, I was wondering why this video was late. Well, something this long work like that. I thought the “Of Course!” joke was retired.

Why doesMorph look like Spock on the Cover?

Because he’s the comic relief.

Alpha Flight! YAY!!! … and that’s why I have the Exiles trades. In 616, Sasquatch is also a scientist with ties to Tanaraq; but he’s a white guy. Heather Hudson (née MacNeil) is Vindicator. And she’s also white. She was the first person to find Wolverine after Weapon X there, too. Alpha Flight’s kind of my thing. Nocturne also appeared in an annual several years before; but that may’ve been an alternate version. Mimic’s five-at-a-time limitation applies to the original, iirc. ‘Professor X’s walk across America… No Superman: Grounded joke? ‘The Dark Phoenix Saga is to many THE X-Men story;… Read more »

All consciousness is one, separated only by a thin veil of the physical.
