“Actually, I think Marrow and Fantomex sort of alternate in filling that niche (on the grounds that dogs are wonderful insecure meat-robots fuelled by routine, certainty and love). Psylocke’s a cat, obviously. Cable’s a fucking great bald eagle. Doc Nemesis is an iguana. You know it’s true.” - Si Spurrier
REBLOG FOREVER BEST YES YES YES
stem-cell asked: So the end of Legacy made me cry. I think I cried that entire issue which hasn't happened since Nightcrawler was killed. But I kind of just wanted to say thanks for the good run with legacy! (Also you almost made me cry at thought bubble last year when you said something on a panel but I was a mike runner/red shirt and that would have sucked) BASICALLY, thanks for making me cry, really enjoying x-force.
Thanks so much - very kind words. And, um, sorry for making you cry.
jeffx20 asked: Any plans on bringing Deadpool into the series?
Nothing solid right now, but… I have ideas, and it’d be great fun to do. So: watch this space.
richardterrones asked: Should or could a human lead the x-men? And who could you see doing that in the marvel universe?
garret-spork asked: Hi Mr Spurrier, Just an X-Force related question. Seeing as Dr. Nemesis is still helping the team out with tech, is there any chance that Forge will make the odd appearance? I really enjoyed he and Nemesis interacting like a grumpy married couple in Cable & X-Force.
No plans in the immediate future, alas. I too enjoyed the Tech Vs Science buddy-movie shtick, but our plans are somewhat different. Afraid I can’t say much without spoiling things, but trust me when I say there are some very creepy secrets waiting to be revealed which I think you’ll enjoy.
jackraow21 asked: Is there a reason for Cable's new headgear in X-Force? He had gotten away from the eyepatch in the last series and had a really cool looking bionic eye. Does he still have that underneath the patch and just wears the headgear for some purpose that hasn't been revealed yet? Just curious. Loved the first issue of X-Force. Can't wait for more.
Everything’s there for a reason, Cable’s much-mocked Solid Snake vibe included. Answers are coming!
drhenrymccoymd asked: Is it weird when i read Fantomex's dialogue it sounds like Peter Seller's Inspector Clouseau?
Hahaha, no, not weird at all. (I read a great review of XF the other day: Spurrier writes a Frenchmam as only an Englishman can. Ha!) There’s a lot of exaggeration and swagger about Fantomex - he’s often annoying, no doubt about it - but it’s like that for a reason. Keep watching: answers are coming. And in the mean time, just remember: he’s not actually French.
momijizukamori asked: Loved the use of Marrow as POV narrator in X-Force #1. Are we going to get to see anyone else's inner thoughts along the way?
As you will by now have noticed: yes! The first arc abstractly rotates between the characters, gradually layering little nuggets of revelation upon other details to flesh-out the mystery lurking behind the setup we’ve been dumped into. Ep 1 was Marrow, ep 2 was Cable, ep 3’s all about Psylocke, ep 4’s Fantomex’s turn to shine, and—
Well. I can’t say more than that, can I? Cos it all starts getting a bit weird.
laughingmagician asked: You are an evil, evil human being! ... loved your run on X-Men Legacy, thank you for a brilliant, wonderful story!
My pleasure - I’m exceedingly proud of it. Thanks for the kind words.
drhenrymccoymd asked: So when David wiped himself from existence does this mean Age of Apocalypse and Age of X never happened?
I’ve just posted a (horribly overlong - sorry) response to some of these questions over on my main tumblr. Swing by here - http://tmblr.co/ZZTRLt1CmhHxM - for answers to your query.
