    What annoys me about this whole 'let's split the fanbase into armed camps and get them to fight for our amusement' from the writers is how much it requires the writers to write the characters in...

    Various X-folk are probably still wearing unstable molecule costumes designed by Reed so that their powers don't destroy their clothes. (I remember Mercury being delighted that she finally didn't...

    I think the association with Nazis and eugenics has somewhat tainted the view of genetic science in general in the real world, and that is bleeding over into the comics. There aren't a ton of...

    Bling!, Gentle and Surge. It is frustrating for me, since most of my favorite Academy X kids aren't there (Hellion, Wind-Dancer, Dust, Indra, Bling!, Spectre).

    But hey, Bling! LGBT and racially...

    He seems to have suffered the same 'I'll abandon my past beliefs to give Krakoa a chance' plot-required-personality-transplant as all of the good-guy mutants who are equally accepting of him, Selene,...

    So anywho, I feel like this is perhaps the first issue that made some serious use of *everyone,* not just Emma and Kate, but Bishop and Pyro got a side-gig, Callisto stabbed some fool in the neck a...

    Archer and Janeway seemed almost like polar opposites. He was almost pollyanna in his optimism and naivette, while Janeway sometimes seemed to go for the confrontational approach at the drop of a...

    And Dawnstar can be a Thanagarian and White Witch can be descended from Etrigan and, Imsk can be a former 'bottle city' captured by Brainiac, and, and, we could easily ruin anything unique and...

    Ooh, I like this one, because all-too often any attempt at opposite-sex friendships turns into a romance, and yet I don't think Dick and Donna have ever seriously considered the notion, which makes...

    Jetstream particularly intrigues me because there aren't a heck of a lot of Saudi heroes out there, and his mutation required bionic implants to channel his energy and allow for flight (who knows...

    Yeah. I feel it more than Cortez's breakdown, or even Shadow King's (although that one was also better than average, IMO).

    Although it was not even close to a 'redemption arc,' but I sure do have...

    Do any of those places have free food, housing and healthcare, no jobs and 24/7 no-age-restricted drinking and sex parties on a tropical island?

    'Cause I don't think so, so 'paradise' sounds...

    Wow, usually these sorts of things are hard for me, but it was Bling! at first sight, and, upon reflection, still Bling! She's a capable fighter with a decent defense, decent ranged utility (so,...

    Yeah, that's back when Marvel made an attempt to consistently portray characters. I liked it, but modern writers find it too limiting and want MOAR FEATZ!

    There's also the odd quibble that both...

    Gabrielle Haller might have been an interesting other option, and been someone both Xavier and Magneto might have trusted in that position, but it's six of one, half-dozen of the other really.

    Very interesting stuff, and I agree with Proxy's next post that mentioned that Way of X seemed like it was primed to explore at least some of this, and then, pfft, not so much.

    Your version is hilarious, and I love it!

    My own wonky AU version is that Maria, instead of being killed by Russian agents, faked her death *because she was a Russian agent,* sent by the Red Room...

    I am always intrigued by little gaps in a hero's backstory that leave some wiggle room for new story potential, and I wonder if the evil creeps that experimented on him while he was a prisoner...

    Replacing the dozen or more panels of Sinister being sketchy with a single sentence 'Tempus went back in time to get the DNA we needed' would be so much of the opposite of a waste. It would free up...

    Nah, they didn't. They have no less than four cyberkinetics who could have pillaged his data in less time than it took me to think of the idea. And the writers know that, which is why we've barely...

    Krakoa.

    I liked the school / Academy X / New X-Men era, and the 80's pre-outback stuff, but that's all long past, and I *still have those stories,* so it's time to move on to new stories, rather...
