The latest issue of Uncanny was a vast improvement over the dull first arc. We have Colossus encountering some evil person from his past, Emma taking a trip through Scott's mind and encountering his mysterious black box, and Beast and Angel meeting up with Mr. Nemesis, the supposedly co-creator of the original Human Torch and expert Supernazi hunter. Ah, Fraction, you are so crazy.

I also like Dodson's art a lot more than Land's. I did notice that Brubaker is no longer co writing... maybe this will be a good thing. Brubaker's X-Men always seemed kind of off to me.

Dr. Nemesis is awesome. He's like something straight outta Warren Ellis' crazy, depraved mind.

It's a shame his Astonishing X-Men can't be as crazy awesome.

About an upcoming issue:

Issue #512 is a stand-alone story that involves the X-Men traveling back in time to find the parents of the very first mutant on Earth.

I haven't been keeping up - is this still written by Brubaker?

Huh? Apocalypse was born in ancient egypt, so unless you think time is cyclicle they'd have to go back. Unless I missed some story where it was revealed that Apoc's parents were from the future and came back to ancient Egypt and gave birth to him.

I wonder who Fraction will use as the first mutant, Apocalypse, Selene, or one of the other dozen characters that have claimed to be the first.

Does anyone know anything about the TPB collection which contains #500 and related issues?

From Uncanny X-Men page at TPBWiki:

  • Divided We Stand (collects Uncanny X-Men #495-499)
  • Lovelorn (collects Uncanny X-Men #504-507, Uncanny X-Men Annual)

I can't seem to find any information anywhere about the collection containing #500-203. Anyone know?

Confusion...from Amazon:

This title collects "Uncanny X-Men number 500-503", "X-Men Free Comic Book Day number 1", and "Manifest Destiny: Dazzler", "Karma", "Mercury/X-23", "Colossus", "Emma Frost", "Graymalkin" & "Juggernaut".
I can find nothing on teh intarwebz about "Manifest Destiny: Dazzler" or "Manifest Destiny: Karma" or any of the others mentioned. Are those actual books? Or actual names of books? Or are they like short stories from certain issues?

They did two X-men - Manifest Destiny issues that had many stories by different writers and artists.

I really liked some of them. Like the Boom-Boom one post-Nextwave. Why they don't collect the entire issues is beyond me.
And that doesn't look like it has all the accurate information on Amazon as Mike Carey didn't write anything but a couple of the short stories.

So just to make sure I understand...There is X-Men: Manifest Destiny #1-2. Within those 2 issues are stories titled "Dazzler", "Karma", "Juggernaut", etc. Is that right?
