 Why do I think they love marvel- Beside the fact that sometimes the premise os so X-Men?
1. Heroes Reborn. The title of the mini-series is also the title of the Marvel Event of 1996, when, after the Onslaught Saga, Avengers and Fantastic four had been apparently killed- only to be discovered to have been "reborn" in a poket-universe inside the 616 main reality by the doing of the reality-manipulator Franklin Richards, son of Reed and Sue Richards of Fantastic Four fame. 
2. People with abilities being hunted because they are evolved- and the people with poweres now defined on the show as the next, or at least another, evolution of the human race? Yes. That's the basic of the X-MEN. 
3. The premise of teh season premiere is the same as the story-line between X-Men events such as Messiah Complex and The Summers Rebellion storyline: a mutant was blamed for the destruction of a city, all mutants were blamed, mutants were hunted down, mutants were in hiding. 
After a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, left the city decimated and lives in shambles, those with extraordinary abilities are in hiding after being blamed for the catastrophic event. A new world order has them being hunted by those with nefarious motives, such as Luke and Joanne Collins, who are out to avenge a tragic loss of their son. Meanwhile, Noah Bennet has taken measures to put his old life behind him and start over, until he comes face to face with Quentin Frady, a conspiracy theorist out to uncover the truth behind the Odessa tragedy. Elsewhere, some are discovering their newfound skills. Awkward teen Tommy just wants to be normal and win the girl of his dreams, Emily, but normalcy is virtually impossible after learning of a new ability that terrifies him. Coming from a very sheltered upbringing, a bold and ethereal teenager, Malina, has been told she is destined for greatness. In Tokyo, a quiet and unique young woman, Miko, is trying to track down her missing father while hiding an extraordinary secret that will make her a force to be reckoned with. In Los Angeles, a different type of hero is emerging through former soldier Carlos. For better or for worse, some are fated to cross paths with assorted heroes of the past and together their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world and mankind"

Title: Touching time and space with wings of fire
Author: Little Firestar 84
Fandom: Doctor Who & Uncanny X-Men (Comics)
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Donna (Doctor Who), Phoenix Force (Uncanny X-Men)
Rating: K
Word Count: 1260 circa
Notes: Au. Set before Journey's end (DW) and Phoenix: Endsong (UXM). Sort of sequel to "weight of history", featuring the whole cast from UXM and the Ninth Doctor, but doesn't require knowledge of previous events nor of the story.
Summary: when they offered the creature their hands, it took them, deciding then and there to never leave them, so that it could help them out and repay the universe of its wrongs. Touching time and space with wings of fire. Sort of 10th/Donna. No knowledge of the X-Men franchise to read this one.

Title: And Their Blood Will Be On His Hands (1/?)
Author: Little Firestar 84
Fandom: The Mentalist
Characters: Jane/Lisbon
Rating: T
Word Count: ?
Notes: For Tromana. A multichapter of flash-fics expanding the universe of my previous story "Two sides of the same coin"
Summary: The web was almost complete, and then he would have been free. But now everything had to be postponed, untill he would have his rightful revenge on the ones who dared to disobey the master. A different take on Red John, for Tromana

....So, apparently, aron ashmore will be play once again Iceman in the incoming movie (which should be both a seuqle to the original trilogy, to first class and a seuqel to X3, as, if it will follow the original story in the comic books, will involve time travel). I don't know if I should be happy, because I just loved him as Bobby, or worried. I wouldn't wnat for his character in the following to die or being "erased" because he ahs accepted to film the movie.
Oh well. just in case, there is also his twin brother shawn. after all, they "exchanged" roles in the past when one of them was having troubles shooting scenes, so, why not again?

I have to say, I had my doubts about Kieron Gillen's run on the brand new, post AvX, "Iron Man".  Uncanny X-Men, which he wrote in the last couple of years, in the post Second Coming Era, But maybe.... maybe it's just me. Comic books doesn't have the same appeal as they did couple of years back, even if... well, I don't have any problems reading comic books from Image, Top Cow or DC. Nor I did with books from people such as Cornell, Fraction or Brubaker. Let's be honest, those ones rock, whatever they are currently working on. AND  I did love matt Fraction's X-Men books. I think that the real problem was with the X-Men franchise, a low quality that showed in the need to create events, and umbrella title.  Which is pointless. Quality isn't in the number of title you publish, but in the title itself, and if you think that to get quality you need to write a series of one-shots and mini to connect events in other stories in order to convince fans to get to you... I'm not sure it could work.
(also, I'm honest: I've abandoned New Mutants, X-Men, which was pointless, and also the brand new X-treme X-Men. And even before then, when it was still published, Generation Hope was no-no).
So, I didn't like uncanny X-Men lately. Really. it looked more concenttrated on not the x-men (aliens, Mr. Sinister, aliens, other aliens, what happened after X-force almsot destroyed the world with the death seed?), and relationship issues (aka the  Scott/Emma/Namor triangle).. I didn't like Gillen's work on the title.  
BUT I've loved Matt Fraction's work on X-Men, and I've enjoyed larrocca as the artist. Always loved him, since he worked on the X-Mne titles a loooong time ago. (over ten years, I think).
AND I've never liked Greg Land as an artist. Greg land is an example of how to copy everything. THere was a joke around back in the day, that he scanned his own images.... It was a joke, but, let's be frank. Guy probably thinks everybody looks the same. Especailly if they are female. why? Quick example: 

the art of copying themselves )

Yes. now you'll get why I'm having troubles. As much as the story can be good (even if Gillan keeps forgetting that the Maya hansen tested Extremis on a well-known terrorist to get founding), well... Land's art always worreid me. He can be good, don't get me wrong, but his characters are all the same and static. They dodn't have the idea of movements. they are like paper dolls pasted on a 2d background. Ugh. covers? yes. Comic books? please. Just because he keeps drawing the female characters out of a porn comic book (facial expression. google him) it doesnìt mean he is good, or that he should keep working as main and regular artist.  NOT all readers are porn-addicted boys, marvel...

Title: Weight of history
Rating:T to be on the safe side of things. Mostly, a K+ things, though.
Fandoms: Doctor Who (10)/Uncanny X-men (Claremont's generation)
Summary:" He should, but he knows he actually can’t, and it breaks his heart, but still, there’s nothing he can do about it"
Notes: set during the Rise of the Dark Phoenix back in 1980, and sometimes after Donna's departure for Doctor Who. could be considered an AU. Also, show mercy. It's my first Doctor Who work...

He should, but he can't.  )
