Martin from the Too Dangerous For A Girl blog http://dangermart.blogspot.com/ gave me a heads up earlier today about Avengers Academy #23 having something I would find of interest. Thanks for the heads up on this mate!
So basically some members of the Avengers go out on a call to save an orphan mutant boy (Jimmy Marks) by some anti-mutant religious fanatics called the Purifiers. Jimmy is adamant about not being sent to the X-Men so the Avengers allow him to stay at Avengers Academy. Toward the end of the issue Jimmy reveals himself to be Hybrid to Reptil sensing that Reptil knows the truth about him. It also turns out that Hybrid knows that the psyche of Reptil's future self is inhabiting the body of the current much younger Reptil and that Reptil facilitated Hybrid's return (we don't know how exactly yet) for his own agenda. Hybird agrees to cooperate with Reptil (for now) under the promise of getting dominion over some of the Avenger cadets. Avenger Academy #24 will continue the Hybrid story line.
The last time we saw hybrid in the Marvel Universe (1997) was back when he battled X-Man (Nate Grey) and was psi-blasted into atoms. For a recap of the issue: http://romspaceknightart.blogspot.com/2010/11/finally-x-man-32-extended-review-return.html

Oh man this is Sweet!!! It be Very interesting to see how he survived the Rom/X-Men attack after all this time! Man Hybrid, your going to make me have to go and check out the comic book store Ha! Now we're going to have to thank. Martin for the heads up and thank you for sharing!!! It would be even cooler to have Rom show up by the end of it all!!!ReplyDelete
Hybrid really is a scary critter. Given writer Christos Gage's fondness for Marvel heroes who need a little love I could well see him pulling in Rom, maybe with a name tweak.ReplyDelete
a name tweak was part of my suggestion to Dan Abnett on Facebook as a way to bring him back with out any legal romifications (i couldn't resist) for Marvel. in tomorrow's posting you'll see how this Hybrid appearance is just one of a series of ROM related story lines and references Marvel has published just this year alone. it would be nice to think it's all building to something but i'm not gonna hold my breath waiting for it just yet.ReplyDelete
but also tomorrow i'll have something for ROM fans on Youtube that will give us all something to enjoy and hopefully keep the pressure on Marvel.
I'll keep an eye out for your YouTube vid and thanks for this link http://beholdthegeek.blogspot.com/2009_01_01_archive.html for more on this story on Hybrid cool stuff man! There may yet be more on Rom we don't know about yet for these little tid bits from His book to keep popping up like this. I won't hold my breath but I will cross my fingers Ha!!ReplyDelete
Thanx for the head's-up, man.ReplyDelete
My job takes up all of my time (up at 3am, out the door at 5am, come home at 6PM, bed by 8pm), I'm just not able to keep up with it all.
~P~, i've wondering where you've been good to hear from you. with hours like that i bet you almost miss your old pre-press job. operative word here being almost.ReplyDelete
Yea I figured I might as well use it so making it my Icon don't look bad Ha! My hours is as bad as ~P~ though wow mines more like 9pm to 5am unless volume makes it spike. which can take up to 9Am Sun to Friday morn which makes Fri, a pain and a joy.ReplyDelete
