About The AuthorMatthew MeylikhovOnce upon a time, Matthew Meylikhov became the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Multiversity Comics, where he was known for his beard and fondness for cats. Then he became only one of those things. Now, if you listen really carefully at night, you may still hear from whispers on the wind a faint voice saying, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not as bad as everyone says it issss."

    Neither of the Point One stories for Sam have endeared me to the character, so I’m going to pass on this unless I hear this series ends up being really good.

      I know he was in the .1 with the Secret Avengers framing sequence, but what was the other .1 story?

      • Matthew Meylikhov

        The original Point One one-shot had it. It was Sam Alexander Nova v Terrax while fleeing the Phoenix. It was OK.

        • David

          Oh yeah. I forgot that the first Point One set up stuff that’s yet to happen (cough cough Coldmoon and Dragonfire cough cough). 😛

          (and yes, I know those two were only written about to help Marvel sell MMOs in Asia, but still….)

    The name Jeph Loeb is enough for me to stay away.
