This series continues to deliver on an epic scale. Can't wait for the next issue!

@captainhoopla: I agree, this was more like 3/5 stars for me, mostly due to the writing. I felt like the ideas were there but the execution was mediocre. The part with the Sentinel might have been the most obvious example, but there were several other points where I felt the author lacked familiarity with the characters' personalities.

Wow, hearing that theme song still gives me chills. I re-watched this series a couple years ago, and I think you're being way too hard on it. Sure it's dated, and not perfect, but there aren't many cartoons from this era that are going to hold up too well to this kind of nit picking (except maybe Batman TAS). Obviously nostalgia is a factor, but I honestly enjoyed watching it as an adult as much as I did as a kid. To quote Gambit, "Don't mess with the X-men!"

@bl00dwerk: I think Archie comics are as iconic to a lot of people as Marvel or DC. They're simply trying to find a way to take something that was created decades ago and adapt it to modern times, not unlike what Marvel and DC frequently do.

This hurt my brain to read and it was awesome.

Can't wait. That variant is sweet.

That cover with Rogue is pretty awesome. Might have to pick it up, if shops aren't charging too much for it.

This makes me really sad. This has to be one of the most enjoyable books Marvel is currently putting out, and some of the best work I've seen done with this character in years. Mark Waid just knows how to write super heroes. Can't wait to see what he does next!

Nic Cage, if only for that image alone.
