    I swear I've seen this exact 'survival of the fittest culling to prepare for the coming of the REAL evil guys' schtick done before in anime and videogames, several times. It almost never works, and...

    I'm dreading them using this event to kill of Brian to make her being CB more concrete.

    I don't think you can really call what happened Brian choosing the Sword. And you definitely can't call what happened with Betsy 'choosing the medallion' over the sword

    I know most countries have done some awful shady junk and worked with bad people, but the guy literally ended civilizations and jokes about ending the Bronze Age. And that's not even getting into...

    But this again feels like readers are having to read between the lines and fill out the story to make it work. As someone said before, the story skipped from A to Z and we have to write B, C, D,...

    They're really trying to go the whole 'well-intentioned extremist' angle with Apocalypse. See, he was a genocidal mass murderer who will literally end the world if left alone to save us all! I've...

    So Betsy was being as awful as people thought she sounded in the previews. She was absolutely not entitled to the role of CB, and kept trying to foist the sword role onto Brian, a role that has tons...

    This isn't the Betsy Braddock fan page. I don't go into there to talk about how awful the character is. Those pages are specifically for fans, and you'd be right to criticize me if I went into the...

    If that's the case, it was an idea doomed to fail from the start, because demons were already a thing in Marvel. Hell is definitely real and definitely populated by demons.

    God, now I'm just...

    I would use Romulus as a way of 'redeeming' Daken fully before cutting him out entirely. I wouldn't tie him to Sinister because Sinister is a whole mess on his own. I'd have Romulus be some...

    That's precisely it. Non-mutants can get in if they are touching a mutant or have mutant parts grafted into/onto them. Deadpool was even able to sneak in by being eaten by a monster mutant.

    Fine, I was trying to be nice. But Betsy is awful. Just an awful protagonist and a terrible leader. She's done almost nothing but fight generic soldiers of Morgan's and do whatever Apocalypse...

    I don't want to get too far into it because its just a theory, but that would be such a disservice to Brian. The way this run has gone, he's been taken out offscreen by a villain that got easily...

    I meant Betsy, not Howard. I don't like Howard's writing but I wouldn't say that about her. And frankly, this is my first experience reading a story with Betsy, and its a terrible showing. I...

    Before HoXPoX he'd kind of been reduced to being a Worf type of villain. A big threat that others beat up to look better. I guess you could say that now he's getting back to that characterization...

    Captain America is written wildly differently when he shows up in X books, so its hard to say. And when its just 'Cap good guy, Wolverine murder cynic guy' dynamic it feels like a repeat of early...

    I didn't get that at all from the talk. First she's angry at Brian for bringing the sword that he's supposed to bring, then assumes he wants to use it himself before stomping off and being snide. I...

    Do you mean me? Kirby isn't a Pokemon. And I'm less a hater of Excalibur and Betsy in particular than I am baffled by the handling of all this.

    He's already died and been back in an afternoon. Between the Eternals nonsense and the 5, he's super tough to make a death stick. Just kill him and grow a new one already.

    It just feels like that they've done all the stories they can do with Logan on the X men. Or at least, all they want to do, since they keep replaying the same stories and conflicts over and over. ...

    Can I just like, hole punch Emma out of that picture and replace her with Nightcrawler? The other almost totally ignored ostensible 'good' member of the Council? Please?
