Anyways, I’d love to see those punks use them against the big baddies like Apocalypse, Sinister and Exodus.
    Marauders will be dealing with the power dampening technology in an upcoming issue. Don't worry the X writers know what it is lol

    New Mutants #1 was such a great start. I'm unfortunately not interested in those "sides" stories.

    It’d be pretty neat if it turns out they have Leech and found a way to bottle him (though he’s meant to be safe with the FF, of course). Otherwise, mutant power damping is kind of lame and unsatisfying compared to power specific blocks like psi (could just be a psychic white noise emitter). I mean, if you can block a power just because it’s from the x-gene, should Herman turn into a regular human?

    Boom Boom, like Elsa Bloodstone and Machine Man, has been a joke since Nextwave. Monica was the only one who could escape that fate thanks to Ewing.

    I don't remember Tabitha ever being a drunk until more recently, as I wonder if she's even 21 and nobody seems to care how much she drinks, even those who are supposed to be her friends, she could be snarky sure but not to this level...

    I thought the whole point of the age limit being well after that of other countries was that Americans instantly massively overdo it when they hit 21, and get so sick that later in life they never have more than one pint at lunch. Certainly the limit in 18 in the U.K., and we’re all raging alcoholics.

    To be fair, Elsa was a cheap knock-off of Buffy and Lara Croft before Ellis elevated her.

    Yes, but what I mean is that they are only used as a source of humor.

    i'd have to revisit the Polina X-Force. she had a lot of page time in those books. i know that she hooked up with Sunspot when she was drunk.

    eh I dunno even in her earliest appearances w/ x-factor she was responsible for the brunt of comic relief. Simonson was really good at walking that line with her though, where Tabby could be someone you laugh at but also empathize with. I guess it helps that she was written as a lot younger then

    To me, her alcoholism makes sense if we're looking at her as someone relatively emotionally immature coping with huge changes to her life, especially considering the accepted party culture of the island. Its early yet, but where I can see this going wrong if its only ever played as "haha lets laugh at the idiot drunk"...lets delve into it. I want to see her keep her hard edges too

    Gah. Even though I'm never a fan of space stories or the Shiar, I've been enjoying seeing how the "main" line-up has been shaking out.

    This is really not for me. No interest in these characters, the writer or the art.

    Well she was emotionally immature when she first showed up, just that over the years she had matured a fair deal, sure not to the Nth degree but she had grown a lot from where she had started, you would laugh at some of what she said but not really her anymore, during the Nicieza X-Force days she was the youngest of the team but I don't remember her drinking, as for Sunspot she pretty much put him in the past years ago and only started drinking about the time that Cable had that small team when Domino and Colossus first got paired off where Tabitha became the drunk party girl, so I don't think that Krakoa had much if anything at all to do with it, that's just how she's portrayed now, that she's a total drunk and nobody seems to care sadly...
