Simon Spurrier’s Narrative “Legacy”

X-Men Legacy #4

The world is made up of stories. Or is that stories make up the world? Either way, in our comics, novels, television shows and movies, we are all inundated with narrative. Many folks enjoy their stories with cliffhangers, tantalizing moments of peril in which they are suspended until the next installment. Others enjoy complete done-in-one stories in which all the plots and character moments are resolved in a tidy fashion. Which is more satisfying? Is there some crossover to be had with both approaches?

Wolverine & The X-Men Trailer

So Comic Book Resources has had the trailer for the upcoming Wolverine & The X-Men cartoon up for a while and while I love it (I mean, really, really love it), I’m a bit irked at the lack of Storm promo scenes. I had to watch it frame by frame to see Angel carrying her to actually get a glimpse of her costume. At least she’s featured prominently in the team photo images, but I would’ve like to see Ororo whip up some lightning just once.

There’s so many characters! I love Kitty Pryde’s look and it looked like Cannonball was standing next to her in a quick shot that pans across the team, but it might’ve been Iceman (but Bobby’s not a blond, folks!) Nice to see Nightcrawler too! And Scarlet Witch and Polaris! Woo Hoo! Looks like Emma Frost is featured prominently. That could be pretty cool, especially if we get to see the beginnings of her and Cyclop’s romance. I bet Jean Grey fans are disappointed though. This will be the first X-Men cartoon without her. She’s shown briefly in the very beginning when something strikes her and Xavier down. Then Xavier is okay and Jean’s nowhere to be seen. *sigh*
