Deja Vu

From Ultimate X-Men #71:

"I think Ms. Grey constructed split personalities to help her deal with having mutant powers. Nothing more."

My first thought: "God! They just can't go the route of X-3!"

And while the Ultimate's Phoenix storyline clearly won't, I was reminded all too often how comics have to make room for their blockbuster counterparts. I know the movies probably bring in a good deal of readers--hell, the early 90's Fox cartoon was my introduction to X-Men comics--I can't help but wonder what kind of pressure there is to include (awful) elements from the movies.

i agree, like that whole Mr. freeze kick dc had when batman and robin came out. oh and the site is lookin' good, like dreamcast caliber graphics.

Yeah, I remember the whole Mr. Freeze (and Poison Ivy) kick. I seem to remember that the Ultimates started during the same time as the first Spider-Man or X-Men movies. Could just be a coincidence though.

I'm glad you like the new template--I was thinking about telling you, but I decided to just go ahead and change it as a surprise. I thought you'd like the pink. :)
