*tears of joy* It's...beautiful!

As biased as this sounds, it's actually one of the best (if not the best) looking Marvel pop I've seen. The pose is perfect, the cards are the big stand-out for me, can't wait to see how it glows. This glow-in-the-dark is scheduled to be released in May, but the regular Gambit pop will be released in June. Hopefully it'll be earlier than that. Pops often do hit the stores before the release date.

I wrote an article about Children of the Atom. It'll be posted soon but I dont believe that they are "side kicks". Whoever this Ayala woman is, she wrote them "like" they were sidekicks. I think this is an elseoworld story that takes place during the 9th life of Moira MacTaggert, or in the near future, but still along the same lines. In the 9th life of Moira, she and Apocalypse allowed Sinister to create what became known as Chimera- custom made mutant soldiers to fight the machine-mutant alliance. The first generation were people with singular powers from past mutants. Which would explain why that girl seems to have Gambit's powers. Later generations had up four power sets like what we saw in Rasputin.

In the 9th life this took place years into the future. This may be the same. IMO Children of the Atom telling the story of that world, or something that happens years for now. Ayala says that they "grew up with posters of Storm and Wolverine" Only way for that to happen is for it to take place years or decades for now... In short, this'll have nothing to do with Gambit. To be honest, if you were Marvel, would you trust a cast of Jean, Cyclops, Angel, Gambit and Nightcrawler to someone that's never written the X-Men, at all? Nah.

Ha! fakenews! Too funny.  Congrats on his engagement.
Ohhhh, I am now understanding the second cover, I just thought it was a variant at first for the Children of the Atom thing. I've been duped twice. LOL :)

Congratulations to Remydat, he's going to be a Daddy! Yay! I know he doesn't visit here often but I wanted those here to know. :)

Fakenews!  ;D

From Remydat at CBR

"Apologies to everyone wishing me congrats as I am not having a baby. When I said currently unborn baby, just meant that said hypothetical child had not been conceived yet rather than a baby being on the way. Poor choice of words as I read it again in light of the responses.
 However, I did get engaged in China last week so there is hope for the future."

Congrats on the engagement!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures - Heroes in a Half Shell (1988) audio: I have a TPB of this that came with a yellow cassette tape, I've had this since 1989 and I must have listen to it a dozen or so times, I'm surprised that the tape still plays. It's basically an adaptation of the first 5 episodes of the 1987 series, they got different voice actors for the characters, but there pretty good and the artwork matches Fred Wolf's artwork style.

"Wait, I have idea for a brand new movie."
"Can you believe this guy?"
"Tell us, what's the movie gonna be called?"
"It's gonna be called, Rocky V."

"Syl, tell me, what's it's about?"
"It's about a guy called Rocky...
"Yeah? Yeah?"

"What's he gonna be doing this time?"

"What happens in the end, I mean you gotta come up with a top class ending to do justice to an idea like that?"
"Rocky wins."
