Re: Runaways #29

Man, Gert cannot unmask Doc Justice for the sociopathic narcissist he really is soon enough. Rowell has created a villain that I love to hate.

Re: X-FACTOR by Leah Williams and David Baldéon

Baldeon? No thank you... Counterpoint: he did some great work on Domino. Ramos-like energy, with some of Ramos' proportional choices in hands and faces dialed back (though his eyes are every bit as distinct as Ramos'; in their own way, of course). I've no idea if he'll fit the tone of the book, but...

The lineup includes Northstar, Polaris, Prestige, Prodigy, Eye Boy, Daken, and—of course— ...

Re: Fallen Angels #5

What's up with those vines to frame the panels? My eyes still hurt Given that the book is nominally about those mutants who feel uncomfortable on Krakoa, the oppressively elaborate panel framings feel very appropriate: the characters are literally trapped in the vines. But I agree that it doesn't m...

Re: Angel Salvadore's powers

Angel spent the whole issue in a tank top, which wouldn't exactly hide her wings. Given that we didn't see them, I think it's safe to conclude that she remains de-powered.

I gotta say, before this issue, when Leinil Yu was announced as the regular artist on X-Men, I was surprised to see as much dismay as I did. I'd never associated Yu with dragging down a book in any way. Hell, thinking back quite aways, I remember liking the art in Lobdell's "Eve of Destruction" (asi...

I think a lighter story isn’t always a bad thing and the devaluing of such always feels a little like “I’m mature and read mature comics” or “fun is little girls and I’m...

And building off Majestic’s point, the drugs are, I believe, not about making more mutants but supposed to stop/slow down humanity from seeking technological means to deal with those issues. It’s another tactic (like stopping Mother Mold) to stymie the coming artificial revolution. Oh my God, of co...

Normally, yes. But they were very specific in HoX #2 in saying that, in Moira's personal case, things DID occur exactly as they did before unless she ACTIVELY tried to make changes. I had forgotten that. But still, doesn't that only apply to Moira? That is, once she sets someone else on a new cours...

Moira says Sinister created his first Chimera decades early. I assume that means "relative to when he's done it in her previous 9 lives". But things in this timeline shouldn't be happening differently unless Moira influenced them to do so. That was one of the rules from House of X #2: Moira is the ...

It does kinda form this idea that maybe mutantkind’s weakness is these two (really 3, we shouldn’t forget Apoccy) men and their hubris. I had actually thought that Xavier had gotten past this, having seen the flaw pretty much reach its apotheosis with Magneto in Morrison's "Planet X": Magneto had b...

At first, I thought that Moira's efforts to disabuse Charles and Erik of their dreams would also temper their hubris. I should've realized the new problem: the very nature of Moira's approach tells these two already very arrogant men, "You are so important." Is it any wonder that—once they think the...

Hickman is throwing enough sci-fi ideas in this mini to fill a couple novels. The Dominion stuff I wonder if it is something being set-up to be explored later in his series.

If we assume the "Face the Future" teaser contains the council sans Moira… then there are a couple of surprises. First: Mystique, who I don't typically think of as an ideological leader of mutants; merely an opportunistic one. Given that, I'd expect her to be Emma's pick (from the choices the teaser...
