Alien Resurrection ended semi-optimistic because his original script was reworked several times, and Titan A.E. was a PG animated feature film about space outlaws. Joss Whedon has a HUGE obsession with Space Outlaws: Firefly, the crew of the Betty from Alien Resurrection, and the cast of C-List actors/thesbians/comedians + Drew Barrymore as the Asian love interest from Titan A.E.
Oh God, how I hate this run!
**** will make you slap somebody
**** will make you lose control
**** will make you pull a gun and shoot somebody in the damn face
I LOVED Whedon's run. I still probably consider it THE best run I've EVER read in X-comics. Emma/Cyclops = brilliant. In fact his Emma Frost in general was incredible. He toed the line between good/evil, giving us a brilliant b*tch with a heart. Kitty/Emma's conflict was great. Kitty/Colossus is the ONLY time I've liked them as a couple. He introduced Danger, made it clear Prof. X is the assh*le we always knew he was; created S.W.O.R.D, gave us Agent Brand (fantastic!), Dr. Kavita Roa (love her!); his stories were clever, original and really beautiful. I truly, TRULY adored it. Add to that the brilliance of Cassaday's art = EPIC!!!
"I don't know how to please you Lord, but I think the fact I try to please you, pleases you."
It was mediocre body of work with lame ending and lots of Emma Frost whining. But it gave me my all time favourite 'See no evil' cover and the return of Emma's gun.
Colossus shouldn't have been brought back since he didn't have anything smart to do or say, Kitty completely regressed (although my son pin up was gold) and whole Breakworld arc was as interesting as a magical bullet. In short: total conceptual bankrupt.
