Welcome to Xmen Revolution. We hope you enjoy your visit.

If you are looking for the best X-Men rpg around, you found it. We're a non-movieverse based on but not stringently following 616 canon.

Currently, we're accepting canons and OCs, and because the game does have some adult themes like violence, we have to limit our players to at least sixeen years old.

Ready to get started? Register under your character's name, and head on over to applications, or pop into the cbox and we'll help you with whatever questions you have.

Welcome to X-Men Revolution, hope you survive!

The world has been scorched by Phoenix Fire, and the future that had been threatened has been saved.

But most importantly, we've survived... though not all of us intact. Some have been made less, others have been given more than they can handle, loved ones have been lost, new relationships have been forged... All of us struggling to find our place again in the world post Doom's Illuminati.

The rebuilt School for Gifted Youngsters welcomes back its founder. Charles Xavier, lost for eight years, has returned, unable to relate what had happened to him, but eager to continue his campaign for mutant/human co-existence, especially now. Scott Summers, too, has been returned from his simulated death and corruption by the Dark Beast's manipulations, but his experiences have scarred him, his normal stoicism broken and fragile. As the school begins again in the relative calm after the events of last year, Scott and Jean, now the solo possessor of the Phoenix Force, withdraw from authority, hoping a hiatus will allow them time to recoup.

Students continue to pour into the school, and the Legacy Squad, under Rachel Summers's guidance begins a friendly competition, dividing into two teams in the spirit of challenge and improvement. New students of a different sort have begun to attend the school, Namor, given diplomatic immunities after his true purpose in the Villains' Illuminati was revealed, has brought Atlantean mutants to our doors, giving our already motley crew an entirely new dimension.

In Mutant Town, X-Factor Investigations and Horizon Labs have come together to study the Tabula Rasa that Spiral had created with her Phoenix powers. Beneath the city, X-Factor has taken in the refugees displaced by the creation of the evolutionary anomaly, all the while continuing their quest to help those who need redemption find it, and remaining a family. Alex and Lorna's son Nate is a year old now, and Alex is considering sending the Moloid children off to the school.

Shield, under Director Fury's watchful, and singular, eye, continues to labor to keep the city intact, forming a new group of super powered agents, many of whom who have been on both sides of the law, dubbing them the Defenders, even as Gambit gathers the criminal element and takes charge of a new branch of the Thieves' Guild. The Hellfire Club, scattered after their defection from the service of the Illuminati, has broken into three distinct courts, Psylocke's White, Sage's Black and the Shroud's Red. The Queens rebuild their building, their rule, and their reputation, while Max Coleridge feverishly leads his small group of devotees on a quest for lost power items.

Beneath the sea, Exodus recovers in Sanctuary, and new Acolytes take the reins of the Brotherhood. Bruised from the attacks of the Phoenix-ified Vulcan, the Brotherhood will soon learn that the man who had worn Magneto's helmet had been a fraud. But where is Magneto, the real Magneto?

Life is not perfect. Most of us don't know if we'll see tomorrow... Many of us would rather they didn't, but we will survive. From school outings, to Singularity Investigations, to a series of mysterious attacks by a group of strangely familiar young X-Men from the future, life hasn't settled down since Doom was shunted off to another dimension bringing his Phoenix powered Illuminati to a crashing destruction. Only now, our present struggles to be the future without destroying the past have taken a less world shaking turn, sending the inhabitants of the 740 universe into a scatter of activity and adventure.

Make no mistake, the [REVOLUTION] is still coming.

What will it bring us when it does?

AvX # 1 - The next big event from Marvel Comics is finally here! The wait is FINALLY over! The excitement! The pulse-pounding action! The...

Overall underwhelming first issue. The Avengers are doing Avengery stuff (which in the post-Bendis days means "Bickering with each other" apparently) when BAM! WOOM! STUFF HAPPENS! Stuff that you already knew would happen after the months of showing previews from this issue spoiled. A Nova crashes to Earth, saying "It's coming". The Avengers automatically know that that means it's the Phoenix, and despite never ever ever ever giving a flying crap about The Phoenix before (where were they when Rachel Summers was the Phoenix?) they decide it's time to go completely gung ho and take the potential Phoenix into custody.

Meanwhile, Cyclops is a raging asshole. Funny how any time someone who isn't Keiron Gillen writes Cyclops these days, he's a borderline psychotic borderline super-villain. Cap shows up and blah blah blah you know the rest.

John Romita Jr's artwork leaves quite a lot to be desired here. I don't know if it's him or his inker or what, but there's something... unsatisfying here. It doesn't work. Say what you will, but Jr. pales in comparison to his dad.

Good to see Marvel's sticking with their fine tradition of events that kinda suck. Still, it's just one issue. Maybe they'll turn it around. Maybe.

The Amazing Spider-Man # 683 - Meanwhile, on the other end of the Marvel Event scale, is "The Ends of the Earth" part 2. Dr. Octopus's plan swings into high gear - and he's apparently intent on saving the world!

Of course, Spider-Man smells a dirty rotten fish (calimari?) and assembles the Avengers to intervene. Will all of Spidey's planning work out? Will Dr. Octopus and the Sinister Six have the last laugh?

Either way, this is how you make an event. It's fast-paced, it's energetic, it's full of surprises, and it's beautifully penciled.

Step aside, AvX - "Ends of the Earth" is the event to read.

Avengers Academy # 28 - The Academy kids and the Runaways save the dinosaur Old Lace, clash over adoption rights, and... yawwwwwwn... learn something... *Streeeetch* very important... yawwwwn... about understanding other people's perspectives and oh my GOD THIS BOOK HAS GOTTEN SO FUCKING DULL.

Twenty four issues ago, Avengers Academy was THE book to read. It was clever, it was interesting, and it gave us new characters to love and care about. Now it's a preach-fest. Teaching its readers to be tolerant of other people's situations, to be open to other perspectives, to be open to the possibility that... uh... teenagers can be parental role models, I guess? I dunno.

Either way, I'm done. Christos Gage, you have officially lost me.

New Mutants # 40 - On the other hand, the New Mutants have gone from blah to pulse-pounding exciting. The Ani-Mator Virus has taken down the whole team more or less, with only Warlock left to be able to fight. So he and Doug merge, protecting Doug from the virus and allowing him to come up with a solution.

This book has gotten so good lately. Fernandez's artwork is appropriately creepy and macabre, and the exploration of the Doug/Warlock relationship is at the forefront. Things come to a nice and tidy conclusion, arguably a bit too tidy, but... an interesting development is revealed in regards to Cypher and it's really quite awesome. Awesome because it makes sense.

Up next - "The Exiled" with Journey Into Mystery! Well, with Academy off my list, maybe I'll add that one on.

Secret Avengers # 24 - Either I missed this last week or it simply didn't come into the store. Either way, better late than never.

This issue has some awesome stuff in it. Captain Britain vs. Lady Deathstrike. Magic vs. Technology. The Council of Robots squabbling amongst themselves. More deliberation from Flash Thompson.

With Avengers Academy now dethroned, this is the best Avengers book on the market. Rick Remender pens an incredibly interesting story, entertainingly mixing the black ops storytelling with immense bizarreness that is thoroughly fun to read.

Gabriel Hardman's pencils are perfect for this team, both dark and bizarre and believable all at once. And that cover by Art Adams - hell yes!

Daredevil # 10.1 - Ah, the .1 initiative - theoretically, the issues are designed to allow new readers a perfect jumping-on point for brand new readers, and if ever there was a book that deserved more readers, it's Mark Waid's "Daredevil". So let's see if this issue delivers, shall we?

Right off the bat, you learn the basics of Daredevil's origin in a brilliantly done splash page by Fred Van Lente and Marcos Martin. Then, on to the story. In one page - one single page, we get the public view on Matt Murdock. Everybody seems to know his secret. No matter how he tries to deny it, the public belief that Matt Murdock is Daredevil persists. In the next page, every single one of his sensory enhancements. That's efficiency, my friends.

And not only does this issue introduce you to what Daredevil can do, it introduces you to his major plotline - "The Omega Drive". Matt's got alot of data, the bad guys, from Hydra to Hellfire to AIM to everybody practically, wants it.

"The Omega Effect" will be the OTHER crossover story to read.

Avengers Prelude: Fury's Big Week # 3 - More behind the scenes magic from the Avengers films. What happened to the Destroyer after Thor... uh... destroyed it? What was Black Widow up to after she got done with Iron Man? And what about Dr. Sterns?!

All this is answered in this issue. Good stuff. Not particularly awesome reading, but it's fun to see the blanks filled in.

By the way, Iron Man 2 happens before The Incredible Hulk, fyi. So when you're setting up your marathons... watch Iron Man 2 before Incredible Hulk if you want to go chronologically.

She knew she had to try,
and she float back down to the warm soft ground,
laughing - she don't know why,
but she had to try, she had to try.
