    Scott calling Xavier and Magneto "sir" doesn't sound good to me.

    Oh how I hope that dialogue is another placeholder that will be different in the released book.

    Wow Scott and Ororo are militant. I guess dying on the Orchis space station has pissed everyone off. I guess it doesn't help that you are attacking a factory where they make mutant killing robots, it's kind of like attacking a Nazi death camp and being horrified at the things you find there and what the people were actually planning to do.

    Well, she can't go back to being Marvel Girl because Jean's using that name. So despite going back to an old costume, she's kept the Prestige name.

    Like Strikeforce #1 was? I wonder why that happened anyway (though the change was an improvement, as Carol now acknowledged Jessica and Monica who are two of her best friends)?

    <sigh> I don't want to get too depressed but you can see she is more or less an afterthought. I think Rachel only appears because Cable does, they are probably working together. I am going to be surprised if Rachel actually gets dialogue.

    The dialogue is oddly expository, hopefully it gets better.

    Yeah it was like "here's for everyone that haven't read all of HoX and PoX" through their voices.

    It doesn't sound robotic, it sounds like rhetoric.
    Context is king.

    X-23's most basic surface level characteristic that any idiot should grasp: Stoicism.
    I don't demand that her every minor appearance be a nuance in-depth examination of her character, but is it to much to ask she be written in Archetype?! This is storytelling 101! If you want people to stay invested in a character, you need to, at the bare minimum, write them such a way that they can plausibly be believed to be the same character!
