Xcavate: What went down at the NYCC 2011...

Well I know it's late- it's been more than a month now since all this was announced (no thanks to my computer's hard disk failing)...but what the hell- I promised you the news so you get it! :P To read more on the developments of your other Marvel heroes head onto the Marvel NYCC 2011 Liveblog Central...


On the comics news front I think it would be all a little stale...

 The Ultimate Comics Universe Reborn Panel discussed mostly about Ultimate Spidey (what with all the hype around Miles Morales, this isn't surprising) & the only thing touched upon with regards to the  Ultimate X-Men was that:
*Ultimate Comics Hawkeye books will act as a link between what occurs in The Ultimates and Ultimate X-Men.

*With the Fantastic 4's Johnny Storm making his entrance in the UXM, it brings up the question about what is a mutant. But the fiery Johnny is doing well with the Ultimate X-Men & he & Bobby (Iceman) have become buddies...

The Cup O' Joe Panel was more forthcoming though (as always) & made some pretty cool X-announcements:

*Jeph Loeb & Simone Bianchi, will be resurrecting Sabretooth after writing his death years ago. Apparently there always intended to be more story- the stage had been set for Sabretooth’s return all along & it's not a last minute rewrite. You get your first look in Wolverine #300.

*The “It’s Coming” teaser that I told you guys about before has got all us X-fans excited (well, at least us Jean Grey fans anyway) cos it seems hint at the return of the Phoenix! 
*Lotsa clues for this & other future storylines are being revealed this month in Point One.  

The one comics panel that had A LOT of X-news to offer was the X-Men Regenesis Panel! It has SO much info packed in it but I'll just serve some of the interesting tidbits though:
*A mind-wiped Sebastian Shaw enters Generation Hope (#15)

*In Wolverine & The X-Men, Logan starts the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning where he's Principal (I found this unbelievable when I first read this!). The new Westchester mansion has a new Danger room, new classes & newer characters.

*Wolverine & The X-Men Omega sees Wolverine face off with Quentin Quire.
*Rogue goes off to the East Coast with Wolverine...So what happens between her & Magneto? Gambit enters to further complicate things!

*Havok & Polaris return from outer space in X-Factor!

*Uncanny X-Force will tell the Dark Angel saga which will result in a new ongoing series from March 2012- Age of Apocaplypse!
*In Daken: Dark Wolverine Daken moves to LA to become a crime kingpin out there...Runaways guest-star.
*Deadpool finds a way to kill himself (in 2012)...

*Chamber gets his powers back...

Instead of elaborating about the Marvel Video Games Panel, I think I'll just let the trailers do the talking...Note I've posted the updated trailers for some of the games rather than the dated ones shown at the NYCC '11...
