    If memory serves she wasn't portrayed very well in that...

    All four old characters in Nextwave are better because of Nextwave (Monica is a special case where she was just the straight man coping with her irrelevance, so she wasn't very different) and writers have used both Bloodstone (in books like Spurrier and Walker's Marvel Zombies) and Machine Man (in Iron Man) in serious stories giving them prominent roles while still maintaining the Nextwave personalities that make them more entertaining. Tabby never gets her own stories, but writers are pretty good at bringing in the Nextwave humor without making her braindead, and she's been a goofball since the 80's. The problem is that no one ever does stuff beyond that, because when she does get a place in a book it's in a team and she's low priority. Brisson is the only writer who seems to want to push her, but I don't know if it's because he has an actual plan or because she's good comedy relief.

    I like every character in Nextwave SIGNIFICANTLY more because of their involvement in that title. Elsa gets used in humorous roles but she’s hardly slapstick. Boom Boom is goofy as hell but I love it for her and it’s carved her a more unique lane in the X-World (and tbf I’ve loved Tabby since X-Terminators/X-Factor).

    Well during Counter X Tabitha left the goofy comic relief side of herself behind and had started to grow up before all or much of that was thrown away and we have her as she is now...she could still do the humor but it was a darker more sarcastic humor and not a drunken airhead humor that gets annoying really fast...

Anyways, I’d love to see those punks use them against the big baddies like Apocalypse, Sinister and Exodus.
    Why do I get the feeling that their defensive measures would involve more trees and/or plants? If the X-Men got any more of a green thumb I'd swear they were in league with Poison Ivy.

    Black Tom Cassidy >>> Poison Ivy.

    He could rock her outfits, she couldn't rock his sexy mustache.

    Real dark, I'm wondering just how bad it's going to come back and bite everyone in the butt.

    Like his characters, Brisson has his heart in the right place, but his execution is very bland. Not bad, with some positive spots, but an overall extremely average issue.

    I guess this introduces another threat but I am not too impressed with them. The book was fine ,the twins are pretty interesting in short spurts. Boom Boom remain good even if it is not the best characterization of her and she belongs on book where she can attention and they can use her personality.

    I was going to skip it, but looks like I might have to take a look after all.
