Once I have such a thing, if Marvel has released Android compatibility, then I'll buy in. =)

Luckily, I am untemptable, because I do not in fact have the money to spend no matter how much I would want to. xD Harold's only recently gotten into superhero-type comics too. He's pretty much a modern-only guy though, not a lot of interest in the older styles. To be fair, it's a pretty huge shift from 80s Claremont X-Men to modern day fare.

Because of all the crazy crossover-ing and shifting of the entire mutant world and whatnot, I'm more or less waiting to see how the characters settle out before picking my new favorites to follow. Except for Rogue and Gambit, because I'll always love them. I've been waiting to see how/where Frenzy will resurface, because I really liked her character throughout Legacy. I'd really love for Hisako to resurface as a main character too. She was great in Manifest Destiny.

I'll let him know that there will be lol-creepy shots available should we pick those two. =)

Jesus, I think someone must be moving either in or out of my building. It sounds like they're just dropping sofas down the stairs.
The ppl above us are the worst, as their childrens never stop moving. Ever.

Also Autumn has finished posting the photos she got of us. There's about a dozen in total, which is cool. I approve!

The Nexus is already compatiable w/ Comixology, so you'll be able to get some older stuff on the cheap as is. As for the Marvel DCU, I think it goes live for iOS in December, so I imagine early 2013 for Android.

As for who's gonna end up where. Gambit's in Astonishing and his ongoing, Rogue's in Uncanny Avengers, Wolverine's crew will be in WaTXM and All New X-men, alongside the original 5, and whoever Cyke will be running with (Mags, Emma, Magik I imagine).Legacy will become Legion's book, and I have no idea with what's going on w/ adjectiveless X-men post January. Plus some mutant may end up as Avengers. COMICS EVERYONE!
Stalk me on twitter! @theanarchris, THEN IMMEDIATELY REGRET YOUR DECISION!

Well, you know what Captain America would never do? Go online anonymously and shit on a girl for having an opinion." -Brian Michael Bendis
