kohl
i have a question and figured this thread could be for everyone to ask whatever they need in one same place.

anyway, here goes: what happened to proteus (moira mactaggart's son) and is he dead?

VallejoKid707
yes he is dead. here's a bio of the last part of his life

The assembled heroes' allies, the team X-Factor, sought out the cause of the strange disturbances and were easily defeated by Proteus/Piecemeal. They were sent to a place where the other heroes and residents of Muir Island were being kept. Jean Grey (now, Phoenix), at the time unable to use telepathy, used telepathy of the mutant Legion to communicate with Proteus/Piecemeal. The merged being decided that it would never be happy in the world in its current state, and the world would never be happy in the one that they sought to create. So they committed suicide by dispersing their energy form once more.

kohl
thanks.

Hegemon875
I know that Apocalypse fused with Cyclops but didn't the X-men kill Apocalypse? So what happened to Cyclops?

Dark_Psylocke
I think that he is no longer fusioned to Apocalypse, but I'm not sure

kohl
you're right.

Hegemon875
Then how did they seperate?

Hegemon875
BTW good thread idea Kohl

kohl
jean sensed scott was still alive within apocalypse, and she freed him somehow.

Hegemon875
thx guys, and I hope that Apocalypse will be resurrected one day devil

frozen flame
That'll be interesting.

thorncrawler
what happens in the story after apocalypse is killed where does the time time go from there? confused

kohl
he is apparently still "dead", isn't he?

Hegemon875
Sadly yes he is still dead

verauko
WHATT?! WHO?!??!?! What Proteus? Prometeus? wha...?!

Paola
Isn't Apocalypse inmortal???
and one other thing.... is Archangel now Angel??? again??

Blind-Enemy
Archangel

Hania
Hey guys. I asked a question, but it's in the evo part, so if anyone can answer it for me?

Hania
Thanks DemonicGambit-2

Paola
confused he's still Archangel?

Hegemon875
Didn't Apocalypse try to make wolverine into a horsemen?

Hegemon875
Apocalypse has a long life span but he's not immortal, to live longer he uses other peoples bodies.

MaverickIce
Archangel is white and has regular wings but kept the name Archangel.

MaverickIce
Apocalypse never left Scott, he's just really weak and barely has an infulence. In recent comics you see Scott much more dark (Getting Drunk with Wolvie, etc.)

Blind-Enemy
apocalypse make wolverine one of his horsemen, Death

Hegemon875
WHAT!!! then that means he's not dead. Wait a minute is this just your own conclusion or is it stated as a fact. Just because Scott is darker doesn't mean apocalypse is still alive.

Blind-Enemy

Paola
Thanx Maverick!!!!! big grin

MaverickIce
Stated as a fact, though it is still debated whether Jean killed him by so called "ripping him out of cyke" Wizard (which is crap, IMO) says he's dead but I seen better theries on superherohype.com, and I think he's still alive.

Take for example the arc before the current one, where Cyke gets a stripper and gets Drunk with wolvie. As we all know, that ain't Slim's kinda deal... Some characters in the comics sometimes suspect if Jean did it all, but hey, its still debateable...

Overall, no one REALLY knows. wink

Hegemon875
Thanks Ice.

nightcrawler90
I know that this will make me sound like a complete idiot, but what is the name of the mutant in X2 that changes the tv channels when he blinks and the name of the mutant that plays with the sabretooth's teeth in the museum at the beginning of the film?

Did any of that make any sense?

Thanks in advance! big grin

greenfreak1402
i'm not sure either but his name could possibly be Jones

Vampy
You can ask in the X-kids thread (http://www.killermovies.com/forums/f49/t22472.html)

I'm sure there was a seperate thread for the blinking guy... I'll go search for it pronto. big grin

Abbita
his name is blinky, the suicidal maniac, suicidal because his powers are shit yes

Jury
good idea kohl.

kohl
another question. i don't read weapon x, only see the previews online. anyone care to fill me in on the latest about aurora, wild child and co.?

pr1983

didn't colossus kill proteus?

spyrokinesi35
does any one know anything about talos? all that I know is that he's really the proffeser. does n e one know anything else? smokin'

Paola
surprise you're opening a thread for every single thing you need help on? eek!

I have no idea about Talos, unfortunately no

kohl
i thought talos was a villain in the hulk comics. hmm.

laughing

spyrokinesi35
no, but I found one of his pics and can be easily mistaken for stryfe. heres the link to it. click

spyrokinesi35
delete

Flavio
ok, i have a question: Miss Marvel is the girl from who Rogue stole powers, right? but Jean Grey was also called Miss Marvel in the early X-men comics (i know coz i bought the first issue which got in Brazilsmart )
so.............. are there two Miss Marvels? scared or the Rogue/Miss Marvel only came after Jean was Jean/Phoenix?

kohl
jean grey's first codename was marvel girl actually. the miss marvel rogue stole powers from is a different person.

Shadow_King
yea flavio are you sure you read it properly.

Flavio
i read it, just her name in Portuguese was "Garota Marvel" which can stand for both Miss or Girl embarrasment and thanks kohl for clearing!!!!

kohl
i can see why you were puzzled--i think the codenames shouldn't be translated at all. :P

Shadow_King
what. but the codenames are call. i wouldnt find it that intresting to keep on hearing scott did this and logan did this.but lucky i read english comics.

Flavio
some of them arent translated (or the name is almost the same), but others...Rogue's name is Vampira (Vampire)...but this is going off topic...

Shadow_King
yea.

pr1983
anyone know sinisters powers?

powerfulone1987
nope.

Shadow_King
sinister dont have powers i think apocalypse gave him pwoers.

pr1983
ok, thx anyway

Paola
Mr. Sinister's known superhuman powers: A brilliant biologist and geneticist, Mr. Sinister also is immortal, granting him a unique perspective on human evolution.

pr1983
cool, but am wondering more about energy projection, is he able to shoot energy from his hands?

kohl
yes he can. also he can change shape by modifying the structure of his molecules. his body armour is invulnerable and his strength is at superhuman levels.

Shadow_King
but why is it only cyclops can hurt him???i never fully understood that.

pr1983
thx kohl



have always wondered that myself.

Couple more questions:

1. Is Colossus' body armor immune to magneto's power?

2. Is Colossus immune to Rogues draining power?

Shadow_King
1.No
2.No

pr1983
thx for the info, i've read so many stories and comics that seem to contradict each other, its confusin sometimes.

Shadow_King
oh ok.

pr1983
yeah, i got tons of questions, id kill this thread

Paola
I read today on a website, that Sinister might act when he gets hit by Cyclops' optic blast

pr1983
hes just pretending?

Paola
might be erm

pr1983
hmm, never thought of it that way, could be true

pr1983
can someone tell me is nate grey related to jean and cyclops?

kohl
he is their son from the aoa timeline--mister sinister created him from (that timeline's) scott and jean's dna.

pr1983
thx, id always wondered, so they never actually conceived him?

kohl
apparently not.

pr1983
ok, thx kohl

kohl
you're welcome.

pr1983
can someone tell me how cyclops and apocalypse merged, how'd the story go, i missed that one.

kohl
apocalypse needed a new host for his lifeforce, and the mutant who he selected was nate grey. cyclops prevented this but apocalypse used him instead. cyclops then kept having flashbacks of apocalypse's memories and was amnesiac most of the time until jean managed to separate their minds and scott was himself again.

pr1983
but... different, emma frost, black leather hehe.

thx kohl, i only read parts of search for cyclops

kohl
you're welcome.

Maelstrom
Xaviar, Magneto, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm...plus 7 more mutants make up the 12. What was the name of that group of 12, if it had one? reading raver

kohl
i thought it was just the twelve.

pr1983
the twelve are:

Xavier, Cyclops, Phoenix, Storm, Iceman, Sunfire, Polaris, Cable, Bishop, the newly found Mikhail Rasputin, the Living Monolith and Magneto.

in x-men evolution, who is the blonde girl in the brotherhood, in the episode with the sentinel shes the one who breaks into the x-mansion with magma and scott.

Lord Ryugen
Her name's Tabitha (I cab't remember her last name.) Her codenames Boom Boom, she can create energy balls that explode when she throws them.

kohl
tabitha smith, also known as meltdown. :>

pr1983
thx both of you

LISA-J
Has Rogue's real name been revealed yet if so what is it? confused

pr1983
i heard it was anna marie, i read it on uncannyxmen.net

platformskater
I don't know where I heard this, but I heard an Anna Raven

pr1983
her names always been one ive never been sure of to be honest

h_nair47
Question


I just started reading x-men again and things seem a bit fuzzy.So Jean seems to be dead.Was cyclops there when she died and how did he react.Which issue was it?How come cyke's with Emma Frost so soon after Jean died?Dosent seem like the Cyclops I know.How does Wolverine fit into the picture?Lot of questions.Help anybody.

ScarletSpider
She took the name Anna Raven after she lost her powers in X-Treme X-Men and was living with Gambit in that mutant suburb in California. Whether it is her real name or not, I am unsure.

Jean died in New X-Men 150. A man posing as Magneto sent a lethal EM pulse throug her body and killed her. Previously to that, Cyclops was having an affair with Frost, after Jean was killed he mentioned something about having made the choice between the two, but we were not told, as it was rather moot and he shacked up with Emma. Wolverine is pissed, as I think he should be. He had had the hotts for her since day one, but had always more or less respected her and Scott's relationship. He cast her aside, and is now, in his eyes disgracing her after her death.

h_nair47
So cyclops was not affected at all with Jeans death?Incredible,so out of character.Did she die in his arms and was there some dialogue btn them before she died.Also isnt there some arc abt how Jean forced cyclops thro his mind to go along with Emma to prevent some dark future?

Blindfold
What are Tatiana (NYX)'s power?

pr1983
sorry i dont know

i need help with finding out about an issue. i barely remember the story, i had it years ago, colossus goes apeshit and attacks the morlocks or morlock associated people. the first page has colossus holding the body of a dark haired woman, maybe its colossus i dunno. if anyone knows it please tell me. it aint drawn by madureira, its one from very early 90s.

kohl
hm. could it be uncanny 325?

Sage Tessa

pr1983
i have that one, and no it isnt, but i know why you thought it was. thx fer tryin sage. i think the artist was whilce portacio but i aint 100% sure

Sage Tessa

pr1983
yep, thats it, thx sage, your a star and i owe u big time, ive been lookin for that for the past two years. u have it?

pr1983
the cover...

Sage Tessa
No, I don't have it...
I got that from UXN...

pr1983
oh, ok....... sad thx anyway

/\RK
psylocke's mind was sent into a body of a japanese ninja/assasin right, then the assasin dies in psylocke's body, so how can psylocke still use her powers, i meant the mutation/x-gene is in her body not her mind,

can any one help me out here, and what did her old body look like?

pr1983
old psylocke pic, as for your question, i have no idea, maybe the fact that her power is psychic has something to do with it

/\RK
i thought that too, but then i was thinking, the new body wasnt a mutant, so it wouldnt have the x-gene, so the brain would have developed the psychic powers

pr1983
maybe, u can look on www.uncannyxmen.net they have lots of bios.

Sage Tessa
Kwannon/Revanche (who Psylocke switched with) was a mutant...

UXN says of Psylocke:
Psylocke was originally a telepath, had limited precognitive abilities, and was a psycho-blaster, able to direct mental energy as destructive mind blasts.

Matsu'o later commissioned Spiral to exchange Betsy's mind with the assassin Kwannon, and Psylocke gained a new Asian body with depleted power levels and the ability to generate a psychic knife in Uncanny X-Men #256. After Kwannon died in X-Men #31, her full potential returned.

Revanche's powers (courtesy of UXN):
Low-level empathic abilities allow her to feel the desires of others, body-switching gave her telepathy to read and project thoughts, generate stunning bolts of mental energy, and forge psi-blades of various sizes to physically and mentally disable her opponents

pr1983
sage? now i know why you picked the name.

/\RK
can psylocke teleport, coz in a game, marvel super heroes, psylocke would get sucked up into a purple circle and appear at the other side of the screen

Sage Tessa
Even more UXN courtesy:

When Archangel and Doctor Strange saved her life using the Crimson Dawn in Uncanny X-Men #330, Psylocke manifested mystically enhanced fighting skills and shadow-teleporting powers.

Months later, in X-Men #78, Betsy was forced to shut down her telepathy in order to keep the Shadow King trapped within her mind.

Later still, in an as-of-yet unexplained incident, her telepathic powers were transplanted into Jean Grey in exchange for Jean's own telekinetic abilities.


Poor girl, she's been altered more than an "Extreme Makeover" patient...

pr1983
laughing out loud

/\RK
ok, i kinda want to know every thing bout psy, how did she get that red tattoo on her face, why is her hair purple, and does she ever die

Sage Tessa
The tattoo is a side effect of her Crimson Dawn experience... (see attachment)

Hair color(courtesy of UXN):
Naturally blonde, dyed purple (european body)
Naturally black, and either again dyed purple or altered by Spiral to be permanently purple (asian body)...

Currently, Psylocke appears to be dead, as her physical body was run through with Vargas' sword, and her spirit was apparently captured by some mysterious being before crossing over...
http://perso.club-internet.fr/psylocke/gallerie/xtreme/betsyghost2.jpg
See the skeleton-looking thing behind her?
It's been theorized that this "creature" took her somewhere...

/\RK
wowo sage ur the best, and is colossus dead? if so how?

Sage Tessa
He was, as a result of curing the Legacy Virus...
Although, now he's back, under as-yet-unexplained circumstances...

/\RK
i have one last question, does any one ever die in marvel??

Sage Tessa
It depends on how you look at it...
As these are "imaginary" characers, never having lived to begin with, none will ever truly be allowed to die, as long as they are still valuable to the company...
However, many are ret-conned right out of existence, or, so unpopular, that writers "kill" them off and leave them that way...

So, in conclusion...
Marvel's universe, Marvel's rules...
Death need not be permanent, but sometimes it's the better alternative... wink

/\RK
it was a joke, but any new question

Magma's real name?? is it Alison Crestmere, or Amara Aquilla-someting

ScarletSpider
Bucky, Mockingbird, Captain Marvel, Swordsman, Dr. Druid and Thunderbird. I actually have the first part of the Count Nefaria story where Thunderbird dies. Nifty cool, if I do say so myself.

Sage Tessa
Amara Juliana Olivia Aquilla...
"Allison" was part of a fake history Selene came up with to further torment the people of Nova Roma...

/\RK
yay, i was waiting for u to post, hmm ok, thats strange, coz in evo she has that name, but they got other peoples names wrong, and in legends, magama has allison, but they got other peoples names right (the ones evo got wrong)

pr1983
crestmere is her name in x-men legends

crazyspinz
what is colossus's brothers powers, i know he is a horsemen in AoA, so hes gotta be tuff

kohl
he can warp both energy and reality. he wasn't a horseman per se, but apocalypse captured him all the same. he disappeared into an unknown dimension with the horsemen.

Shadow_King
what you talking aboot kohl i thought mikhail was raised as the forgotten horseman and what is this thread aboot???

D-Double
Hey folks... big grin

I haven't bought any of the X-men comics in a long while, but I'm curious as to what's going on nowadays. The last thing I remember, Wolverine got his adimantium (spelling?) sucked threw his pores and had bone claws. I know this was a hella long time ago, but I'm hoping you X-ellent page turners could drop a tid-bit of info on me...

Here are some questions, but feel free to kick the random knowledge...

eristole

Paola

Sage Tessa

2. Apocalypse...

3. "Xorneto" killed her... rolleyes1

4. I don't believe so...
Not yet, although in "The End"...

5. Yes, although in the most recent X-Men, 164, both he and Nocturne were sucked into the "black hole" in Xorn II's head...erm

Colossus died curing the Legacy Virus...
...and was very recently "revived" by the new Astonishing villain, Ord...

pr1983
i heard that cyclops and betsy 'get it on' in one of the comics. does anyone know which one?

Sage Tessa

pr1983
omfg...... cyclops is the man......

Sage Tessa
After a bit more research, the first four are from X-Men (2nd Series) #17, where apparently nothingmore happened...

Unsure about the last... where something happened... wink

D-Double
2. .....oh duh!!....I should have figured.... embarrasment

3. ...Damn that Xorneto!...he always messes it up for everybody...erm

4. whistle OOoo....mystery... shifty

5. ....black holes suck.....

Colossus.... big grin ....Kool... raver

Sage Tessa
Yes, in the first, Scott "accidentally" walks in on her in the bathroom, but they both apparently enjoy it... big grin

The second... whistling ...who knows? wink

pr1983
hey, he is partially blind... wink

second one is pretty obvious by the posture...

Sage Tessa
Right... rolleyes1 ...or at least that's what he told Jean... wink

I said, "whistling"

pr1983
he'd never lie to jean... or would he...

i know what u said...

Sage Tessa
He would... yes

I know you know... rolleyes1
I just didn't know you knew... wink

pr1983
i knew...

now you know that i knew...

raventears
I have a rather silly question. Do Emma Frost's eyes glow red when she uses her telepathic powers? I see a few pictures of her with red eyes but am not sure.

Sage Tessa
No, that is (so far) just in the preview for X-Men (2nd Series) #167...
It most likely has to do with the "greater danger" mentioned in the previews...

raventears
Ah, thanks!

D-Double
What's Wolvesbane (spelling?) and Strong Guy up to these days?

Sage Tessa
"Wolfsbane"
Strong Guy has most recently been seen in "The Arena" fighting gladiator-style, and helping "Madrox" out in his solo series...

D-Double
eek! ....Madrox has a solo series?!!.....Yeah!!....

.....(pok-pok-pok-pok)....... big grin big grin big grin big grin
