> Fortunately after 3 months of cold turkey I'm able to resist things cosmic, but I'll be following this. Of course it means Black Bolt isn't dead.. kinda dry humps any concern there in the current SI stories. Vulcan is like a GOD.. but Masterblowing his skull in sounds good. Inhumans VS Shi'ar.. fun stuff. Blackbolt VS Gladiator (if Vulcan didn't kill him) would be a better and more realistic monster battle in there.

Black Bolt is one of the upper-level powerhouses in the MU. He should be able to hold his own against Vulcan, unless Vulcan can absorb his electron based energy. I'm sure any battle will be indecisive as Vulcan ultimately will get his just rewards in an X-book one day. So Black Bolt has to vent his anger on someone...poor Gladiator. A little Inhumans, a little cosmic/annihilation stuff, some X-stuff....a nice combo.

> Me like option 3. Storm's as overexposed as Wolverine. Have Forge come back into her life.. or Doom. Doom liked her (or was that retconned to a Doombot? If Doom really REALLY loves her he can flay her alive and wear her skin as an armor to make his new 'masters' happy)

I think it turned out to be a Doombot. That Doombot was really digging Storm though. Maybe Storm is a....robot!! The real Ororo is still wearing a mohawk knife-fighting in the New York sewers.

> It's probably Samson and he really should be Plaid Hulk, because that's the Spaceballs level of power he has. Those issues remind me of a Gatorade on a hot day.. it's gone before you realize you've got it. They're so scarce on content it's amazing.. and give credit to Loeb for figuring out how to get a monthly writer's salary for writing 1/2 installments and not having to do any research or make any sense at all with his story \:\)

Hey, you know Loeb was going to demand a high price for naming a couple FBI Agents on Heroes Quesada and Alonso. Maybe next year Clare makes a deal with the devil...

No. Exodus helped but his brain back together. He's still missing chunks of memory here and there. Chuck and Gambit have become wedding crashers.

> I lost interest when JMS took the book, tried BND.. and the realization of what a waste it was contributed to my banishing monthlies. I still say that's the most bone headed move in comics in decades.

Wont' get much of an argument from me.
