Exiles (Marvel Comics)

The Exiles are a group of fictional characters that feature in three Marvel Comics series, Exiles, New Exiles, and Exiles vol. 2. The Exiles consists of characters from different dimensions, or realities, which have been removed from time and space in order to correct problems (often called "hiccups") in various alternate worlds and divergent timelines in the Marvel Multiverse.

Created by writer Judd Winick and artist Mike McKone, Exiles features a revolving team roster with new characters introduced and others replaced when they are killed or returned to their home reality. The series is notable for the number of characters who stay dead, in contrast to the frequent resurrections that occur in the main Marvel and DC continuities. It has featured familiar characters or settings from previous Marvel storylines, such as the " Age of Apocalypse" and " House of M".

The first volume of Exiles ran for 100 issues, ending after a crossover with the members of New Excalibur in X-Men: Die by the Sword and the one-shot Exiles: Days of Then and Now. In March 2008 New Exiles began with Chris Claremont and artist Tom Grummett at the helm. New Exiles #1 sold out prompting Marvel to release New Exiles #0 which collected Exiles #100 and Exiles: Days of Then and Now. Writer Jeff Parker and artist Salvador Espin relaunched the series with a new #1 in April 2009, but the book was canceled after only six issues.

Exiles (Middle-earth)

In J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth legendarium, The Exiles are the Noldor who left under Fëanor and Fingolfin after the destruction of the Two Trees and robbery of the Silmarils. The Doom of Mandos was placed on them so that they could not return to Valinor.

The Exiles were split into two groups during the Kinslaying at Alqualondë; Fëanor and his sons and followers took the ships they had acquired from the Teleri, leaving Fingolfin's followers behind. They had to cross the Helcaraxë in the north, and lost a large number of people there. When asked about the course of action they would take to transport the rest of the exiles, Fëanor ordered the burning of the ships.

Morgoth wasted no time attacking the Exiles, who proved vastly superior to his Orcs in spite of their small number and unprepared state.

Fingolfin and his followers arrived at the same time as the Moon first rose, and they mainly settled in Hithlum.

The Exiles set up kingdoms in various places and joined others. Amrod and Amras joined the Laiquendi of Ossiriand, Finrod built Nargothrond and Minas Tirith, and Turgon built Gondolin, as detailed in The Silmarillion. See Noldor.

After the War of Wrath, the Doom was lifted and many of the Noldorin Exiles went back to the Undying Lands.

Exiles (play)

Exiles is a play by James Joyce. It draws on the story of " The Dead", the final short story in Joyce's story collection Dubliners, and was rejected by W. B. Yeats for production by the Abbey Theatre. Its first major London performance was in 1970, when Harold Pinter directed it at the Mermaid Theatre.

In terms of both its critical and popular reception, Exiles has proven the least successful of all of Joyce's published works – only Chamber Music (1907) runs it close. In making his case for the defence of the play, Padraic Colum conceded: "...critics have recorded their feeling that [Exiles] has not the enchantment of Portrait of the Artist nor the richness of [ Ulysses]... They have noted that Exiles has the shape of an Ibsen play and have discounted it as being the derivative work of a young admirer of the great Scandinavian dramatist."
