A+X #15One has Blue Fur and the other is wearing Horrible Pajamas.

That’s literally all I took away from this first team up in A+X #15 which pits Science vs Magic with Beast and Dr Strange. While the story is fun and there are a few good one-liners, this is a pairing I would have loved to have seen across a whole issue rather than just half. This seems to be the biggest issue with A+X (beyond constant reuse of characters rather than always going for something new), with only half an issue to tell a story you often get something short and sweet. For some of these stories that works just fine, but for others, it really does make the story feel empty. Like they really could have done more with it.

Also, does this cover image make Dr Strange look like Wil Wheaton? Just a little…

Then we have the continuing adventures of Cap and Cyclops. Now, the only reason these two are working together is because the Skrull guy could confirm that those two are not Skrulls. Then, with their Skrull captured (cause the guy was smart enough to move his heart), they head off looking for a Skrull safe house… and call in backup. Why does this feel like it’s negating the whole reason these two enemies are working together? How can Cap or Cyclops trust that Emma, the Cuckoo’s, and Ant-Man are not Skrulls? I know they needed Emma to to conveniently use her telepathy to save the day… and I suppose you could argue that it’s the fact that they are using the powersets of said individuals are a good reason to trust they are who they are… but still, it defeats the purpose of the teamup. If all Cap needs “proof of powerset” then he could cuff Cyclops and be done with it.

Ah yes… plot holes..

ComicBookMovie – Rose Byrne Reveals Whether She  Has Been Asked To Return For X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
“As it turns out, she’s yet another cast member from X-Men: First Class  who is waiting on a call from Fox. However, while it was a little surprising  that January Jones hasn’t heard anything, the story arc of Byrne’s character was  wrapped up pretty neatly after her mind was wiped by Charles Xavier at the close  of the movie.”

ComicBookMovie – Brian Bendis Comments On  Director James Gunn’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Rewrite
“I’m not allowed to say anything specific — it’s a great script. It really  turned out great. James Gunn did a really great job. I read the last draft — “Oh  please, don’t suck, because I’ve already invested part of my life into this — and I was like, “Oh, this is great! This is going to be a lot of fun!”

From CinemaBlend: Doctor Strange, Ant-Man Confirmed As Marvel Phase Three Films

The Marvel executive tells MTV News that a Doctor Strange movie “is definitely one” of the movies planned in [the Phase Three] stage of release, joining Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man as a Marvel movie we’ll see in theaters after The Avengers 2

“He’s a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have,” Feige says of Doctor Strange. “He’s totally different from anything else we have, just like Guardians of the Galaxy. He’s totally different from anything we’ve done before, as is Ant-Man, which keeps us excited.”

Which begs the question, will Marvel treat him as ‘real magic’ or will they try to find a plausible scientific explanation? Also, I know she’s not really known to work with Strange, but if they don’t introduce Wanda in Phase Two, then they could easily give her a role in a Doctor Strange movie. Yes, I have a bit of a one-track mind. 😉

ComicBookMovie – Mark Millar Talks X-MEN: DAYS OF  FUTURE PAST And Director Bryan Singer
“Everybody has a list and at first you think ‘I’m going to please everyone’ and  then you realise you’re pleasing no-one by just throwing in ten second cameos,  you know. I think that was the major problem with that first Wolverine movie and  X-Men 3.”
