Inhumans fan wants to read some x-men comics. Where do i start with the x-men?

An Inhuman fan… looking for some good X-Men comics?  Now I’ve seen everything :3

I think a good place to start is a stand alone graphic novel tale called ‘God Loves Man Kills,’ by Chris Claremont and Brent Anderson.  I’m sure it’s still in print or available in digital format.  It’s to me the essential X-Men story.. what they’re about when they are at their best.  It’s an older comic (published in the 80′s), but it’s aged quite well.

Other recommended X-Men stories include:

  • The Dark Phoenix Saga by Claremont and John Byrne
  • Days of Future Past, also by Claremont and Byrne
  • New X-Men vol. 1-5 by Grant Morrison and various artists
  • X-Men: Supernovas by Casey and Bachalo
  • Astonishing X-Men vol. 1-5 by Whedon and Cassidey
  • Uncanny X-Force vol. 1-5 by Rick Remender and various artists
  • Wolverine and The X-Men by Aaron and Bachelo

  • What she meant:Why did Joss Whedon fight so hard to win the character rights to Pietro Maximoff just to kill him off? Why was he being such a stubborn brat? He didn't even give him a feasible death. Quicksilver can run faster than Mach 5 yet he gets shot up by a bunch of snails pace bullets? It's not right. It's just not right. Days of Future Past showed up that not only does Quicksilver have the speed and time perception to outrun a shower of bullets, but also has the time to rearrange bullets to completely miss their targets, AND make a bunch of guards do embarrassing things to each other. You can't write a speedster character who runs slower than a bullet. That's just so detrimental to the very nature of the character. Imagine writing the Hulk being unable to bench press 200 lbs. imagine writing Thor being unable to lift Mjolnir. Or Tony being unable to fix a piece of machinery. It just doesn't make sense. It's the biggest writing blunder of all time and Joss Whedon actually fought tooth and nail to get the rights to this character just so he could piss everybody off by killing him. Like, there wasn't even any emotional depth. When I say "I hate Joss Whedon" I don't meant it in the way that most fan girls say they hate writers; for killing their favourite characters and making them cry. I hate Joss Whedon because he took a perfectly good, complex character, ruined his entire characterisation, and killed him off in an impossible scenario with no depth. There was no need for Quicksilver to die. You just went ahead and killed him off for no reason because you think character death makes good writing. Thank God Joss Whedon isn't writing any more Marvel movies. I hope the Russo Brothers do bring him back.
When I say, I love you, it’s not because I want you or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are.

as excited as i am for ca:cw its a pretty huge bummer that the entire premise of the story, which is cap and tony’s friendship, is pretty much non-existent because joss whedon was too busy stroking himself to give any time for tony to build actual relationships, let alone a friendship with enough depth and intimacy to have a dark side and seemingly just kinda forgot that cap and tony were supposed to friends until the last 3 minutes of aou

  • What she means:What's with the "language" line in Age of Ultron? Has Joss Whedon never talked to a WWII vet? They are the most foul mouthed randy motherfuckers I've ever met. Does he think Steve grew up in upstate New York? He grew up in fucking Brooklyn with gays and immigrants. He's herd it all in every language. Furthermore even if Steve self censored his ass he wouldn't be the kind of person to tell others to watch their FUCKUNG language. He fucking loves people's freedom. Honestly look at Bucky and tell me that's a clean mouthed motherfucker. Joss Whedon completely misses the character and now the two dimensional Boy Scout image of Steve has returned to popular culture.
