AfghanAnt’s Thoughts on the Uncanny X-Force

Uncanny X-Force #1

Uncanny X-Force #1

I have never been a fan of X-Force. I’ve enjoyed the art but I always thought it was ultra-violent for the sake of being ultra-violent. I also never understood why Cyclops, of all people, would assemble a team of killers to defend the mutant race. It just always seemed against the X-Men code. Anyway, I’m excited to see Psylocke and Archangel on the same team again. Hopefully we’ll see some romantic connection amongst the murdering.

We all knew Wolverine was going to stay on the team. He’s practically the leader but I’m confused why two non-mutants are on the team. Fantomex is a super-sentinel and Deadpool is a mutate.

In fact, Psylocke shouldn’t be considered a mutant (well I guess he Asian body is actually a mutant) but originally Betsy Braddock was half-human, half-Otherworlder like her brothers Brian Braddock (Captain Britain) and Jamie Braddock.

If you know anything about me, you know I loved Morrison’s X-Men run, so seeing Fantomex back is really excited but I’m not digging this weird black and white costume he’s wearing and I’m really not digging Deadpool’s either. Let’s hope they aren’t colored like this in the actual comic.

Rob Liefeld ‘s Gay Wolverine and Gay Cyclops are GHEY

I’m not going to lie – I hate Rob Liefeld especially after he ranted on about not being homophobic because Shatterstar (a lame sword-swinging x-man) couldn’t be gay because he’s a “Spartan and Spartans weren’t gay”. Yeah… right.

Anyway, I came across this page today when I gearing up for my next “Rob Liefeld is a Hack” post:

You know what my problem is with this scene – it’s ok to be a gay (x-)men who is a  cross-dressing cocksuckers but it’s not ok for them to be warriors and have loving homosexual relationships.

Again Mr. Liefeld – fuck you.

Sabretooth Returns in WOLVERINE VS. THOR

While I think this new digital comic by Frank Tieri and Paco Diaz has a ridiculous premise – Really? Thor, God of Thunder Thor versus Wolverine? Get the fuck outta here – I am excited about  Sabretooth’s return. I don’t know why but I’ve always liked Sabretooth. I think it started when he was pretending to be a dumb animal in the X-Mansion and fucked Psylocke shit up.

BTW – This is most likely a What If, dream, or some other comicbook nonsense and Sabretooth is still Dexter’d and Mr Sinister still has boobs.

Marvel Anime – Wolverine

I hate to tell Marvel this but this guy ain’t Wolverine. He is some Ninja Gaiden, Hugh Jackman swagger jackin’, demon killing mother fucker with claws.

I’ve watched this video at least seven times and the more I watch the less it feels like Logan. I know they didn’t want to go from the traditional Wolverine, however when Japanese fanboys are doing it betta there is a problem.

I mean come the fuck on! Did Joe Q really watch this and go “That’s one badass Japanese Wolverine” because I know I sure as fuck didn’t. I’m not being a hater to just be one either, pretty much every comment I saw thought this was:


Jesus Christ, this sucks real bad.

WTF is this shit …FAIL

This is going to be worse than that time Christian Bale Goes Bat Shit on Peter Griffin.

New X-Men Skins for Freedom Force

So if you’ve been to Freedom Force Resource lately, you know Spectre Lad revealed that I was Emperous. So here is the back story –

Back in Nov ’08 I decided I’d try some experimenting with styles and just wanted some non-AfghanAnt feedback, so I began to skin the New X-Men design by Frank Quietly and set up a new account on Freedom Reborn. I had intended to never reveal that I was Emperous to anyone save the few people who I asked for personal advice on the skins. I was just going to release and ignore that I ever did them but I’ve changed my mind about a lot of stuff lately and thought I would reveal myself. I guess thanks to Spectre Lad for poking me to finish up Beast and release them under my avatar.
