I just want to take a moment to give a mini artist appreciation post for David Yardin. He has been producing some fantastic covers for the recent Jean Grey series, and I have been really enjoying seeing young Jean cross paths with a range of Marvel heroes. Beautiful artwork. :]
Marvel legacy theory regarding Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in Marvel legacy:
This has been something that I’ve been thinking about for the past week. So when Marvel released there covers for legacy which payed homage to older Marvel comics, there isn’t any news on what the storylines will be for these comics but Marvel keeps saying they will be honoring their characters legacy and bring them back to their classic roots.
So after awhile it hit me, what if Marvel is bringing back the concept of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver as the kids of Magneto again. The main reason being that the cover for Uncanny Avengers pays a homage to the Nights of Wundagore storyline where it is revealed that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are Magneto’s biological children and Marvel keeps saying they are honoring their characters legacy. The Magneto parent concept has played a huge role in Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver’s characters and many fans weren’t happy about Marvel retconning this because it shits on their legacy and all the character development that has come out of this. So if Marvel means what they say and want to make fans happy by honoring their characters legacy I think reworking the Magneto, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver family concept is the best place to start because the retcon really took away a lot for these characters.
I’m not getting my hopes up for this one since Marvel doesn’t really like using mutants anymore for their storylines since they don’t own the film rights to the X-men, and that was the reason for the retcon in the first place so they could have control over Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver without Fox getting in the way.
(P.S Sorry if this was poorly written, I’m bad at explaining things and getting my thoughts out)
Logan stays dead: I like Logan as much as the next guy, but we already have 3 wolverines running around we don’t need 4.
Amazing Spider-Man gets a new writer: please for the love of god get rid of Dan Slott.
The fantastic Four return: Its never been the same with them gone.
Emma Frost gets a redemption arc: They did my girl wrong in IvX. She deserves better.
She-Hulk gets better: Seeing her all depressed/broken like this is well depressing. And after what happened to her in Civil War II, she deserves better.
Mary Jane gets written properly: A long shot, but the way she’s been written in the past 5 years have been awful and once again she deserves better.
Phyla-Vell comes back from the dead: Yeah this is a looong shot, but dammit i miss her and moondragon.
The OG X-men return to there time line: They have overstayed there welcome and are honestly not compelling enough to warrant there stay and pale in comparison to there older counterparts.
Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel gets called out on Civil War II: It needs to happen. Carol was an absolute monster in CW2 and frankly needs to be called out on it. Someone needs to say how much of a cunt she was.
New creative teams: The most important thing that Legacy needs is new creative teams for there books. I mean if all there books have the same people working on them then absolutely no one will care.
