Mutant Women of Earth: How Chris Claremont Reinvented the Female Superhero
This April Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel launch a new X-Men title with a roster of Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Psylocke, Rachel Grey, Rogue and Storm. That the team is all-female is unusual for a series that isn't defined along gender-lines. What makes the roster extraordinary is that it's an all-star line-up.

It's hard to think of any other superhero team with such a strong bench of women, and it's especially hard to think of another team where so many female characters rose to prominence within the team itself. What these characters have in common is no mystery; they were all written by Chris Claremont, the man whose name is synonymous with "strong female characters."

Kevin Nowlan Offers Big Ups To All His ‘New Mutants’ #51 Haters
As a wise television theme song writer once said, "what might be right for you might not be right for some," and that's especially true when it comes to art. It's very much a matter of personal taste, and while I think, say, Kevin Nowlan is great (especially in his recent collaborations with Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez), he's not everyone's cup of tea...
