    Default X-Men #3 [Hordeculture] - Review/Spoilers

    - Unlike the preview, the book starts with people in masks coming through the Savage Land's portal who then encounter and attack Pixie and Anole.

    - After the title pages, we get into the council meeting seen in the preview.

    - Back to the Savage Land, the X-Men on Savage Land duty are subdued (fucking hell, man) and the attackers are revealed to be your grandma and her book club and they spout some un-necessary dialogue.

    - Cut to Australia where it's revealed that the away team for the issue is Cyclops, Emma Frost and Sebastian Shaw (bruh...). Since Illyana is off-world bullying aliens, they have to hitch a ride from Gateway.

    - Cut to Savage Land where the trio encounters the Horde. Sebastian tries to talk them out of it and gets bodied by their mutant neutralizing slime. Scott tries to OPTIC BLAST through and gets bodied.

    - I had to stop to take a drink.

    - Emma diamonds up and tells them to explain themselves.

    - Your gran-gran tells her that their basically super botanists who were planning to make plants take over the Earth but the Snoop-Men ruined their plans with their fancy mutie island. Team Gran-Gran fucks off and tells Emma that with their knowledge they can hack the Krakoa gates whenever they want. The book ends with another council meeting about Hordeculture and a data page for your granny.

    *Whoredeculture

    This issue was hilarious. I'll take the flower grannies over Orchis any day. This is seeming more like a Cyclops adventures book though l, I will admit and that's a good thing for me.

    Poor Shaw got his ass kicked the worst though.

    Emma may need to get that burn looked at. ( No this isn't an STD joke...or is it?)

    Meh... I was really disappointed.
    So many things don't work in my opinion.
    And what kind of a team is Cyclops, Shaw and Emma?

    That was glorious. And the first issue where Yuís art worked, IMO. Heís suited to the armor, gadgets, bizarre crones, etc. The color was lovely too.

    The flagship is clearly intended to begin with a lot of worldbuilding and support of the line for its early issues. Hickmanís Avengers did much the same. It works for me because so far itís full of fresh new ideas.

    Yess he worked nicely here. I didn't like the diamond form, but the old ladies looked very good.

    I think most of the facial work connected as well (and not just the old ladies), which is rarely the case with modern-day Yu.

    I was hoping for more especially in the Savage Land but we just get some annoying old cranky Grandmas? Shaw and Cyclops get their ass beat by Grandmas? Why?

    Meh this felt like Hickman's worst yet.... this really needs to get better fast

    Completely disagree. I thought this was a good character building issue for Scott and Emma, and to some extent shaw. The point that the villain isn't some young hip 30 year old mad man with a plan is a turn too. Older people can be just as coniving. I really liked this issue

    The Jean/Emma scene and the "you need to was yourself girl" are clear evidence that Hickman has been watching reruns of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.



    Emma is clearly Kenya Moore.

    Jean = Phony Phaephae and Emma is Kenya Mwhore?

    Liked the issue a lot. Scott and Emma were obviously screwing each other brains out right before the council meeting. Hence Jean passive agressiveness and Emma remarking she dont have a hair out of place.

    Scott last issue: I love a single person.
    Emma this issue: if you beat up these ladies I'll love u even more.

    Theres no making it more clear.

    Yu's Cyclops was YUmmy.

    The art is so stiff. The scene where Emma is insulted is just so lifeless.

    If h eloves someone, that someone isn't Emma. he was basically letting the old ladies call her names and didn't seemed pressed to make Emma love him more. neither was Shaw
