Charles Xavier’s Dream

The dream, Captain — Charles Xavier’s dream — where all Earth’s children, mutant or otherwise, live together in peace and harmony! Where people are judged for who they are — not what they look like or how they’re born. That’s why he created the X-men, to exemplify that dream. Are you saying , simply because the X-men are dead … we’re supposed to give it up?! – Phoenix

Comics is a form of visual art consisting of images which are commonly combined with text, often in the form of speech balloons or image captions. Originally used to illustrate caricatures and to entertain through the use of amusing and trivial stories, it has by now evolved into a literary medium with many subgenres.

Runaways is a comic book about six teenagers who discover their parents were secretly a group of super-villains called The Pride. It was launched in 2002 as part of Marvel’s Tsunami imprint. It was created by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Adrian Alphona.

Cable & Deadpool is a superhero comic published by Marvel Comics.

You know, I distrust people who ‘read’ comics … you don’t read a comic book. You look at a comic book. While you’re looking at a comic, sure, you read the words; as well, you learn to look at the panels in a certain order, in a certain way … if you start out to ‘read’ a comic book, you’re starting out with the wrong mind-set. – Samuel R. Delany The Comics Journal

The viewer is a ‘co-producer” of the comics text at a level of involvement and intensity just through the nature of the medium itself. – Samuel R. Delany The Comics Journal
