Ultimate X-Men #64

I have a renewed interest in Ultimate X-Men all of a sudden. Could have something to do with the last week announcement that Kirkman will be writing for the title indefinitely starting here soon? Ah yes. Vaughn's not too shabby w/ the current run either - so i guess i can't really complain.

2 mins: Polaris is still locked up in the Triskellion w/ Magneto, her boyfriend Havoc is pretty pissed about it and dead set on a dramatic rescue. The Ultimates (whom i love) are not about to let a bunch of "kids" break into their crib so they greet them at the gates (leaving the entire place unattended except by a few canon-fodder guards for some reason??). Forge and Mystique use their absense to break in and... Ah well it's predictable... free Magneto? Seems the Triskellion's defenses are a bit shade for the greatest super-powered prison in all the land. Vaughn lost me w/ that but... I'm still buying. C+.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
