    Meh. Fox owned the properties. That's now Disney. It's no surprise that they made the acquisition of the IP formal for Marvel on the print side. I wouldn't describe that as being 'shafted', considering they haven't done much of relevance with them lately. Also should point out that Dark Horse has been losing IPs left and right, not to mention harboring a sexual predator for the highest editing position. I would say it's deserved. Quite the opposite of shafted.

    ya i'm not surprised they would bring over the print side i just totally blanked on fox owning alien/predator which i really shouldn't have.

    dark horse was also doing a fair amount with the both of them there have been a good few comic series in the last year or so but my following of dark horse starts and finishes with alien and predator so i can't say i know any thing else about them.

    OK I see others have made any further comment by me redundant. Moving on.

    Apparently the new line up conssits of Cyclops, Storm, Marvel Girl (Jean Grey), Nightcrawler, Thunderbird, Sunfire and Havok.

    Storm is also from Wakanda in this version. Marvel wants to focus on some of the more unlikely unknown X-Men so they can give Fox's X-Men time to die down
    I am guessing Professor X is going to be in there, surely? that's an interesting mix, although the only one to have never been on live action anything is Sunfire. Storm being from Wakanda makes sense, maybe we will see her in Black Panther 2? that is probably the logical tie in

    Seriously though the bar is so low with the X-men that I’m not worried about them making too big a mess. Leaving out Colossus for Deadpool franchise, I hope.
    I would love to see a Deadpool/Spider-Man movie. Ryan Reynolds and Tom Holland would be amazing to see work together.

    Here's a question. Did the entire MCU happen in an alternate timeline? The evidence comes from Ant Man 1, where Hank Pym falsely accuses Howard Stark of stealing his work. Stark did not, but the Avengers DID in Endgame. Pym is referring to the missing Pym Particles. So this is a branch timeline, not the real one. What do you think?

    Earth-199999 is the designated universe number for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a shared fictional universe which crosses over superhero films and television produced by Marvel Studios.

    Not what I meant.

    For the purposes of my question, we consider it a given that there is a "main" MCU. We know of 1 alternate MCU universe that was created when Loki steals the Tesseract in Endgame. But my question is "Have we ever even SEEN the main MCU?" Pym accusing Howard Stark of stealing his tech in Ant Man 1 suggests THAT version of Pym (and everything in Ant Man 1) is an alternate MCU that was created when the Avengers stole the Pym particles in Endgame. So how far back does that go? It is all an alternate universe with the main MCU left unexplored?

    Well, I've long considered the mcu as one trashy mess that needs a huge do over anyway.

    Pym was accusing him of attempting to replicate his work after stealing some of his research,not stealing the particles them selves,he calls the ones he slams down on the table a poor imitation.

    That is not made clear. When he said steal the research, that could very well mean the particles themselves.

    We still have an Ant Man 3 scheduled for release. The plot could very well revolve around stolen Pym particles and trying to prevent an alternate universe from forming and destroying the MCU.

    Another easter egg people may have missed is Ultron is still alive. He showed up in Spiderman: Homecoming. People wonder if he will be in the final Tom Holland Spidey flick.

    I think his point is that the "main" mcu and the main marvel universe in general is the original 616 comics one.

    everything else is a different reality or timeline.

    MCU writing is actually really good. This is NOT Blizzard writing. Blizzard has no ability to be nuanced or subtle or drop in deep cuts that make you rewind and look back at things that happened earlier. The MCU actually pays careful attention to plot details and constantly drops in easter eggs that people find years later. If I was talking about the plot of Shadowlands, I would be overthinking it. But the MCU actually does this stuff on the regular.

    I found a psychological diagnosis of the incredible hulk. I found it interesting to read. Apparently he has intermittent explosive disorder.

    Psychological Diagnosis and Justification
    A review of Mr. Hulk’s file reveals that he exhibits classic symptoms of Intermittent Explosive Disorder with underlying Anti Social Personality Traits. Request investigation to rule out possible Exhibitionistic Sexual Paraphilia Disorder.

    The American Psychiatric Association (2013) defines Intermittent Explosive Disorder as “recurrent behavioral outbursts representing a failure to control aggressive impulses.” These outbursts appear as a verbal tirade and/or physical aggression. The outbursts are impulsive in nature and not premeditated. They are unpredictable and are disproportionate to the trigger or stressor. In order to qualify for a diagnosis, these outbursts must occur about twice a week for at least three months. Mr. Hulk clearly meets these criteria.

    According to the American Psychiatric Association (2013) Antisocial personality disorder is an enduring pattern of personal experience and behavior deviating markedly from cultural expectations, is pervasive, enduring, and leads to personal distress or impairment. It is characterized by a pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others. Symptoms of antisocial personality disorder vary in severity and range from verbally abusive behavior to severe violence. Care should be taken to distinguish the anti-social behavior that Mr. Hulk exhibits from the psychopathic behavior exhibited by his colleague Magneto. Whereas Hulk’s violence is “affective” expressive, and emotionally driven, Magnetos violence is “instrumental,” calculated and goal driven. The difference can be understood by imagining a cat’s behavior in two different situations.

    First, imagine the cat that has been cornered by the neighborhood dog. It’s hair is standing on end, it is caterwauling and hissing loudly and basically completely freaking out. If you go and try to pick up this cat when it is in this state, it will tear you apart- this is the anti-social Hulk’s effective violence. Now imagine the cat as it is hunting a wounded bird. It’s ears are back, its body low, moving controlled with stealth towards its prey with deadly purpose and focused intent. When it strikes, it it is lethal and the bird rarely sees it coming. This is the psychopathic Magneto’s violence. As far as ruling out a diagnosis of Exhibitionistic Disorder for Mr. Hulk, that is a tough one.

    Paraphilias are behaviorally and cognitively defined. For instance, Exhibitionistic Disorder involves the behavioral exposure to a stranger or unsuspecting individual, accompanied by intense sexual arousal. Mr. Hulk certainly does exhibit the core *behavioral* criteria of Exhibitionistic Disorder in that he has repeatedly exposed his genitals in public to strangers and unsuspecting individuals.

    What is less clear is whether or not Mr. Hulk is motivated to do so by an uncontrollable sexual urge that is deliberately intended for the unsuspecting and unconsenting individuals. Mr. Hulk maintains, that his semi-nude presentation is purely the result of him losing his temper, which he claims causes him to grow so large that he completely destroys his pants.

    It should be noted that no witness has ever reported that Mr. Hulk displayed any sort of arousal during any of these reported incidents. Nevertheless, the frequency with which Mr. Hulk has been cited for borderline public indecency is hard to ignore and should raise questions about the possibility of future sexual motives. A full assessment is recommended in order to determine the extent of Mr. Hulk’s level of Exhibitionistic Disorder.

    X-Men: The Animated Series Revival Has Been Discussed - It's Up to Disney
    The producer of X-Men: The Animated series has confirmed there have been talks about a revival but said it's now up Disney about what happens next.

    Sourse: https://www.cbr.com/x-men-the-animat...evival-disney/

    The producer of X-Men: The Animated Series has confirmed discussions about a possible revival of the beloved cartoon and said the ball is now in Disney's court.

    Speaking during the Wizard World panel, producer and director Larry Houston said he's "made conversation" with Disney about bringing X-Men: The Animated Series back. "We've had talks, but that's about it," said Houston. "We've made conversation and it's up to them to make the decision, but we've let them know that we're all available for whatever they want to do in the future."

    He concluded, "Whatever they wanted to do if we had all the original team. That's what I would come out of retirement for." Houston's words were echoed by former cast members George Buza and Chris Britton, who played Beast and Mr. Sinister, respectively. However, Wolverine actor Cal Dodd noted that "nothing is coming to fruition" at the moment.

    X-Men: The Animated Series ran for 76 episodes from 1992 to 1997 and adapted major X-Men comic storylines including "The Dark Phoenix Saga" and "Days of Future Past." The core cast was a who's who of X-Men favorites including Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Rogue, Jubilee, Gambit and Professor Xavier.

    Although X-Men: The Animated Series ended after five seasons, it has been credited in the past with inspiring Lauren Shuler Donner to buy the live-action rights to the X-Men and kick-starting development on 2000's X-Men. When X-Men: The Animated Series bowed out in in 1997, the Season 5 finale rounded off with "Graduation Day" and brought the various storylines to a close. The show was originally set to conclude with Season 4's "Beyond Good and Evil", but there was a last-minute order of new episodes. Despite there being a definitive end to the cartoon, Houston said in January 2019 that he'd always imagined a revival to be a direct continuation of what came before and try to keep the same aesthetic as its '90s counterpart.

    News about a possible X-Men: The Animated Series revival comes after Gargoyles co-creator Greg Weisman discussed the idea of bringing his show back following its Disney+ debut. Both X-Men: The Animated Series and Gargoyles were critically-acclaimed during their runs and lived on in other mediums. Both animated series are currently available on the Disney+ streaming service. As of yet, there have been no official announcements concerning a revival.
    I am excited for this.

    While at the same time I also don't think we should get too excited, don't forget this show originally aired 26 years ago (my age is showing *sobs*), no doubt animation and technology has come a very long way since then, I don't expect the animation to be exactly the same, hell the later half of Season 5 was god awful in itself due to budget cuts that eventually led to the shows cancellation.

    But if this does mean a continuation and not a another horrible reboot (even though I know X-Men evolution has its fans) I will be happy.

    The original X-Men cartoon is still the only adaption to get the Phoenix/Dark Phoenix saga close to right, unlike other movies and cartoons have.

    This is a show that is probably tied up there with Batman the animated Series and Gargoyles as my favourite animated shows as a kid. And especially if news that Greg Wiesman has been rumoured to work on it (the writers behind Gargoyles) then this movie is in good hands from a writing perspective at leas.

    With that said I am going to be so old when this show airs that I am aware thats its not going to be for me. But I hope its something I will still be able to appreciate

    I’d much prefer a revival of Wolverine and the X-men. It was a surprisingly solid show and the second season tease was interesting. I too am dated from watching the original X-men series, and some episodes do still hold up well, but with the X-men, and a lot of comic adaptation, I’m more about getting the characters right, having, say, a dark Phoenix story done yet again holds no interest to me. Tread new ground, or at least ground that hasn’t be done several times already.
