I'm no lawyer, but I do believe the copyright holder, in this case JB, can contact Twitter and file a DMCA complaint.

The copyright holder would be Marvel, who own the characters.

Iím absolutely loving Scott as leader.

Iíve ofter said one of my main beefs with the X-Men films is that Scott should be a leader second only to Captain America. Of course, before the Marvel films, no one knew what I meant.

Now they do but they just canít see it, having only seen the films.
& then there is the crap Marvel put him through.

Thank you for restoring the Scott I grew up with

The latest pages were the ones I found most exciting so far from a story perspective -- very compelling. And makes a lot more sense to me with the narration and dialogue than before. I took the transformation of Wolverine literally when I first saw these pages.

Don't know who to feel more sorry for: Storm or Wolverine. "Pretty much cooked right through!" Gruesome!

All this weekend, I've been telling my customers to check out the pages on this site. One, who has seen some of the pages, talked about how great they looked.

Fun stuff!

Wonít pretend the number of views on the art thread havenít been a disappointment. Perhaps I did Marvel a favor!

If there's a positive about the guy, and others like him, who take these pages and post them elsewhere,  it's that it shows there is a good number of fans interested in seeing your work, JB.  The issue with view numbers of this site, I think it's due to how more people stick to social media sites these days. 

Pages on Facebook and Twitter that use your name can get more views than any thread on your actual site because of this phenomenon. And the only reason those fake accounts get so many views is because of the use of your name, proving there is interest in your work by many more fans out there.

It's very odd to say, considering that visiting another website is a matter of a few keystrokes,  but frankly it seems too many people are simply too lazy to seek out and come to the site. Easier for them to search out a Byrne related account on the social media site they already use daily and absorb any new news or work from and about you there, in an indirect and distorted fashion typically. 

This is the modern world, sadly. 

Look how many people praise the art in comments on those Twitter posts, or comments on things like the SyFy video interview. Yet,  it's obvious these genuine fans of your art don't bother come to this website, if they are even aware of it.

Heck,  most everyone that buys comics from my business knows your work, and the great majority of them are fans. However, it surprises me how many seem unaware of this site, or have heard about it and never checked it out. 

One thing I can say for sure is that the numbers for the fan fiction thread are not truly indicative of the potential audience for a print version of the series.

There is @ least one Facebook group that is strip mining the pages & posting them. Iím not the only member of that group that posts here but only the owner would be able to see the page stats - number of views, reach etc.

Would be interesting to see their numbers.

I posted page one as an advert for my friends to come to this site, but only page one.

& yes, I agree with Matt - Iíve been following this development since its start but found out it was being published from a Facebook page. It then took me a while to find it as I didnít realise it was in the fanfic area, & then that area doesnít announce its existence on the main page.

A lot easier to find these pages @ the strip mining sites @ the moment.

As an aside, if I google X-Men Elsewhen, the actual thread comes up 14th in the list of results, behind some news reports & a strip mining site or two.

Reading this first issue in this way has been an absolute thrill. The sneaks that
we saw of the art without the narration/dialogue were fantastic, but reading
this with the narration/dialogue brings it to a whole new level. It's so amazing
to experience the story in this way.

I am sure it would be interesting to see an inker tackle these pages, but I am
very glad that we are experiencing this story for the first time as pencils. The
look and feel is just wonderful - there is a depth to this art that I can't get
enough of.

And I think it's really appropriate for this to be in pencils for another reason --
a lot of fans of the Dark Phoenix saga were made aware of the original ending
when we saw JB's abandoned pencils to #138, in which we saw a pastoral
scene of Jean and Scott in the aftermath the Dark Phoenix ordeal. We are now
in that penciled alternate universe that we only got a taste of, and I am so
excited to be along for the ride.

This all comes on the heels of the JB X-MEN ARTIFACT EDITION - its just been
such a great time for fans of JB's X-Men work. I can't thank you enough, JB!!

What is up with these viewing numbers are they going around, being maxed out and going around again? The numbers were higher yesterday than today. Seems wholly unreliable.

The numbers are definitely counting - I've just clicked the thread, clicked fan fic, clicked the thread, clicked fan fic and the number went up by two.
So something else is happening to make them go down

Modok in an X-Men comic? Definitely curious to see what plans he and AIM have in store for the Savage Land.

As we get into some Kitty stuff with the latest posted page, I think I should remind everyone that I am portraying her powers as I intended when I created her, not as Chris wrote them. She doesn't "swim" thru matter, with it passing around her like liquid. Her individual atoms pass between the atoms of whatever she penetrates.

(I'm also playing Nightcrawler as Len Wein originally intended, but that's not likely to make a lot of difference.)

Based on GIANT-SIZE X-MEN, less a jester, I should think. Because of his startling appearance, a misfit even among mutants.

Sweet.. new pages are coming. I like how you created new panels around the Sauron vs Wolverine page, the bottom panel of Cyclops and Storm is particularly nice. I join the chorus of fans who would have loved to have been able to go the the LCS and pick this issue up... however this is a cool and unique way to read a comic!

I'm thinking more of how his powers work.

Ah, yes. Mr. Claremont did indeed deviate on that score.

Was in called an 'indicia', the bit at the bottom of the first page of a comic?

Publishers details.

That is what I thought initially on seeing the byrnerobotics.com address on the new page. Love it.

Not only getting the fabulous artwork but getting to be reintroduced to these wonderful characters again. So grateful.

It makes a lot of sense to me that MODOK needs a dental plan. He's a giant head that gets punched all of the time!
