    Yeah, but then he sided with the villains again in WatXM, without the excuse of Quire. I think it could be spun that Glob's not evil, just a follower who doesn't do a lot of thinking for himself, but that still doesn't do a lot to make me want to read about someone woobifying the see-through turncoat.

    Glob seems to be more of a writer pet character than readers favorite.
    he appears so often that one might thing he is a readers fave.

    He did some bad things and never paid for it.

    For me personally, I think why I do not like Glob and other characters like him is because these non humanoid or unique mutants often play stand in for characters of color with in the franchise. I really just want characters like Synch, Risque, Triage, Hijack, CeCe Reyes, Jetstretam, M twins, etc to get a real shot at development. It shouldnt be that hard to have mutants who happen to be Asian, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, multiracial, queer and/or disabled get some love on the regular.

    I don't even think mind control would br a defense for his actions, every single one of the other rioters went through some sort of disciplinary comeuppence. QQ died, while Radian his sister Tattoo and Redneck all served time for their involvement. Only Glob escapes unscathed, free to Glob up panel spsce....Glob onto characters storylined....etc leaves globe to just globe on the people storylines

    Because of his first appearance and the things he did-now being written as a poor character you should feel sorry for?? and because he is only a pet character of Brisson who tosses him in every damn comic book he writes, even if it doesn't make any sense. it's annoying...

    Before hearing all this I liked Glob as a go-too example of a mutant who couldn't hide his powers and wasn't a supermodel. Gonna rethink that. And now that you point it out, he is kind of a stand in for characters of color or sexuality in that regard.

    Every single second QQ is on panel I want to punch him.

    Her conversation with Glob just kinda feels forced, almost manipulative.
    Armor: "This place..."
    Glob: "I love it"
    Armor: "I know, its... great"
    That almost sounds like she'd have said its "boring" if he didn't immediately say "I love it".

    Her line about them just, "hiding together, but still hiding" back at the mansion, even though that's exactly the same for the Island.

    And the way she's trying to pitch to him the idea of going out and looking for everyone else - WHILE at a party.
    And the next shot showing that he's off partying - He's clearly enjoying himself on the island, while she's trying to convince him to leave it and do something else.
    Everyone's enjoying themselves on the island, and she's literally reading through the mutant roster trying to find an excuse for going out.

    I'm calling it now - Armor's stir-crazy.
    Im thinking they are still going with her personality from gold which in sense can bring more trouble than needed

    I really enjoyed seeing Sage here. I also want to see Beak and Angel. They could have been the next big X-men love story, they could have been the next Scott and Jean but nooo the X-office just didn't have it in for Beak and Angel and their epic adventure style romance.

    Imagine them two experiencing something similar to Scott and Jean on the moon. Beak and Angel had so much potential. We could still be shipping them instead of worrying about Jean, Scott, Logan, and Emma.

    Glob was punished too. After the riot he was out of the books for several years while he did his time and community service, didn't return until the San Francisco era IIRC.

    He was forgiven pretty quickly for the Hellfire Academy betrayal during the Schism era though.

    I think you are being too optimistic to the couple beak/angel

    So, do we think/know if this preview is a little interlude or B plot to the adventures of Berto & Illyana, or is the whole issue like this? Does one artist do the Earth scenes and the first one do the Shi'ar ones?

    Not a fan of Glob at all. I say use characters like: Pixie. Surge. Dust. Hellion. Mercury. Rockslide. Match

    This issue, and I think the next one, are an Earth interlude. I'm eager for it, but its really bizarrely placed. We get back to Illyana in a couple issues.

    Jumbo Carnation as a coke freak fashion designer whose resurrection mutant power means he can only sleep while dead, spends every night creating clothing too scorching for this filthy world, while simultaneously searching for more decadent and depraved ways to kill himself. Buttermilk babylon. Sundays with Sabertooth. The electric piston pistola popsicle pavement pounder. Eat and drink him. WEAR him.
    The woman in the shadows with the elegant sigh. What could a common man do to catch her eye?
    Her easy manner shames me, oh I hate myself so much! I tremble and I'm breathless and I'm begging for her touch.
    She sees my anguished urges but continues smirking by, If I dare to follow her, it's likely that I'll die.
    But even as she's feeding, as my body's torn apart, Will she think upon me kindly?
    When she slowly eats my heart?
