    Default Fallen Angels #3 - Seppuku *spoilers*

    Welp discussing this in the preview thread felt sad lol so here I am I guess. Hereís what went down (been a minute since I read the issue so ignore I miss anything let me know):

    -That big robot thing calls itself Apoth and refers to itself as Psylockeís child (donít worry, he (?) made sure to let us know all will be explained)

    -Thereís a fight sequence, Cable gets yeeted, Psylocke tells Laura to let loose and she does

    -Thereís a kid there so they chill a bit, Psylocke reads his mind and Laura goes awol looking for Cable

    -Cable gets snatched by a wraith-looking thing

    -The kid dies but Psylocke knows where to find the others Apoth took. Laura wants to find Cable but Psylocke insists he can take care of himself, the kids canít

    -The thing that took Cable works for Apoth, says they want to end all things man, mutant and machine. Lucky Cable is all 3 and chained down .. not looking good for my man

    -Thereís some data pages about like making yourself a sword or sumn again. Theyíre excerpts from another text but I canít remember what. They didnít feel super crucial

    I think thatís it. Weakest issue so far imo but not bad enough that Iíll drop it. Iím interested in what other people think because all the response Iíve seen so far seems pretty negative

    oops my bad there. couldn’t tell if it was the robot’s internal monologue or omniscient voiceover lol. If Apoth isn’t one of those two I’ll be genuinely shocked

    Kwannon: The kid's dead

    There's so much wrong with Laura's characterization here, and it goes beyond just trying to use her to prop up Kwannon.

    For starters, in what world should she need someone to STOP her from killing a kid?*

    *In which the trigger scent is not involved.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    The New X-Men: Can't let you grow up because you make everyone look old. But we can sure as @#$% mindlessly kill you off for shock value!

    Think it's safe to say this book isn't for me.
    Gave it 3 tries and yeah...3 strikes. Actually more like 2 and a half but same diff.
    Not a fan of how Laura is written. Kid Cable... no emotional ties to him.
    Kwannon - like that "Psyloche" exists but execution is not to my taste.
