    You speak like there’s a connivance between the “white authors” and those who hired them… because they have the same color of skin?

    I don’t see the connection about the sexual assault allegations going on with some comic veterans and the fact that these comic veterans are white. What? A sort of divine justice must fall on them...

    I see Magneto becoming the Academy’s headmaster more like a penance… He wasn’t so thrilled to do it.

    I miss badass Rachel, too. This one is so… ninny.

    I wouldn’t say that it’s that irrelevant.

    Personally, I have a soft spot for the jaded old sage who has seen and done everything. :)

    But he’s not the one that is the most favoured by recent authors: not enough macho… :(
