    It's not Daken.
    But a new son altogether. His name is Jimmy too. And he has metal that grows over his bone claws, Kitty says it's like the organic metal of Colossus.
    Because the Marvel universe wasn't already like a huge 50 year long soap opera.

    I don't care that it's drawn by Adams, it's written by Loeb and that's just not a good thing.

    I didn't mean it was exactly Daken. But similar to him. Why does Wolverine's son have to have claws?
    He's probably a clone of Wolverine with some other Xmen powers spliced in

    They propably just made this
    "son"
    , so that a
    Wolverine-like
    character can have sex with Kitty, without being called a paedophile. Sucks that he doesn't have metal cla... OH WAIT, the metal is there from the begining. Sigh.

    Srsly, what the hell is Loeb still doing in Marvel? Why do they lt him write anything? Didn't he f%^$ everything enough?

    cause he can sell product...if titles sell, they'll keep the title/writer.

    why does Marvel do big crossovers back to back? - cause it sells, even though majority of them sucked
    Why did Marvel raise the price of certain comics? - cause even at that price, it'll sell.
    Why does Marvel like to restart comics at #1? - cause it sells, having that "#1" on the over helps too

    and so forth. If it sells, its a keeper.

    That would be cooler then the story they gave. Apparently
    Wolverine had some chick and the mother died in childbirth and he gave the kid to his friend

    Didn't Loeb used to be good? I thought some of his stuff on the early Superman/Batman arcs were good.

    he used to be really damn good... HUSH was what got me back into comics back in the day, and some of his other stories have been amazing, but basically, since his kid died his writing has just gone down the crapper...

    His Superman/Batman was pretty damn good for the most part. His X-Men stuff was also very good in the 90s.

    Now, if his name is attached to a title, I just won't buy it.

    And I have no interest in a teenybopper X-men drama with another Wolverine clone or whatever this new guy is. Call when they bring back the real Ultimate X-men.

    Loeb was fantastic. His Superman/Batman was epic until issue 25. His Superman run prior to that was great as well. And I really enjoyed Spider-man Blue.

    Comic fans seem to have a big problem understanding market forces and voting with their wallets. They will continue to buy books they don't like, over and over and over, for some reason I cannot fathom.

    So we have the strange happenstance of books that it seems a majority of fans may not like continue to sell well, reenforcing the editorial and authorial decisions made.

    I just can't figure that out. It's so illogical.

    My writing sucks anyway, but lets assume for a second it was good.

    Pretty sure it'd go down the shitter too if my kid died.

    Given that reason, I can sympathize with his skill dropping, but it escapes me why he's still aloowed to write this shit...
