    I was never a fan of Loa but I hope she wasn't killed off. Killing x-students has become redundant at this point. I would much prefer Loa be relegated to comic limbo rather than just getting killed off.
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!

    So what do we think of NextGen?



    I know it's small stuff, but I miss the more pragmatic and sarcastic Anole. It's like Brisson only heard of these characters through someone just dropping their whole history plot really quickly.

    Looks like Blindfold being on the cover doesn't really mean much anyway (unless it's a misdirect). Everyone else is just some of the fav X-students + important cast members

    What if... editors made it clear what characters can't be used to artists before they start group cover commissions?

    Is Ernst still in limbo? I want to believe her limbo is related to the return of Cassandra Nova somehow

    If editorial can't even be bothered to check the names of their characters, I doubt they give a rat's ass about covers meaning anything.

    Or maintain consistent design sheets. Or characterization. Or continuity.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    I love To's Rockslide & Shark Girl. They look primed for huggles and squunching.

    Ugh.

    Now I'm going to have thoughts about Glob eating, and how everyone at the table can see the masticated mush sliding down his esophagus into his stomach.

    Which is surely a metaphor for something, but self does not have time for this.

    So anyone want to take a stab at what the fuck Northstar was talking about?

    My interpretation of the dialogue is: Jean Paul teasing Vic about a physical altercation between he and Santo, prior to Vic's leaving Xavier's.
    He was implying Vic's motivation for the altercation could be unresolved romantic feelings -- a crush -- but that was just Jean Paul being snarky, which is completely on brand for Mr Beaubier.

    I disagree in this instance. Jean-Paul is snarky, but he's also not an idiot or devoid of empathy - he was also a confused, angry runaway himself at one point. I thought Young's characterization of him here - clueless as how to approach Victor and spouting platitudes - was just god-awful. There was a good idea here, holding the X-Men responsible for the kids they essentially abandoned, but the absolute wrong adult character was chosen to spout the spandex-lifer party line so Vic could have someone to rebel against. Cyclops, Iceman, Beast - any one of those would have been a much better fit.

    Thanks for realistically crushing my VicSanto dreams. ANYWAY, the complete collection of Childhood’s End just came out (the link if you want to order it is on the first page). For some reason I didn’t think they would include the House of M tie-ins.
