    Dear snobs, don't try to figure out my avatar.

    Sorry, I am agnostic. And your presumptions makes you something.

    Thanks for sharing, From The Shadows.

    When I first saw this "cover" some months ago, actually tried to find it if was an old book I hadn't read! Unfortunately, it wasn't. But the art is gorgeous. :)

    Are they... *actually* talking?



    spoilers:
    Or was it part of Mastermind's illusion already?
    end of spoilers

    I hope not, 'cause it's cute. It looks like he's chatting her up. :D

    Yes, I'm aware I'm feeding of crumbs of background images of side books. I'm that starved of romance from the part of those two! Don't judge! :D

    It's in the X-Corp. Warren is approaching Andreas and Sara St. John (and one of the dupes is there too, walking behind him). Scott and Jean are drawn small, in the background.

    A little box informs us it's 11:40 p.m. and Warren asks: "Andreas, where is you sister?"

    Thanks and good eye! I never would have spotted them and was beginning to wonder if there was a difference digital and what made it to print (as thats happened before)

    No problem. I didn't see it first either. But I'm curious. I went back to try to see if I could spot when spoilers:
    Mastermind started using his illusion
    end of spoilers and then I was like: "wait a minute... is that Jean and Scott? Are they talking?!" :D

    So, I was looking for some instances of Jean using her tk and being awesome at it, and I found some cute moments of our couple. I'll be posting them.

    Starting with this one. It's not exactly a tk-flight kiss, but it's similar to the moment in The Further Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix. I think we could call it a "whee! catch me!" moment! And this one ends with a kiss! :D





    If you ask me, the world needs more of those kisses. Marvel, make it happen, please! :)

I thought I could wait a bit longer because it didnít feel too bad, actually. But, noÖ And that was the only time it happened. But it was super fast too. I came back almost right away.

    But Iím sure Scott would have found a way to scold me!
    Yeah, that's just the kind of guy Scott is, lol.

    Cool, although I still think everything would've worked much better if the book had come out sooner.

    And, personally, when things get like that, I really have to walk away for a while and detox. I mean, the way I see it, if itís annoying you more than entertaining (or, at least, intriguing you), thereís just no point.

    I know that, right now, no matter how awesome it might be, Elektra being Daredevil *will* annoy me. So I think itís not the right time to jump back in. But I will, eventually (because I love Matt Murdock), and Iíll probably be more fair about the writing at that point.
    I was close to that point with Hickman's X-Men, it's been a huge disappointment to me.

    Prosecutors have their place in the judicial system, but Matt just doesn't work as one. Other than that point, I've heard good things about that run, and also about Zdarsky's. I guess they just both make some poor decisions.

    And I think engaging in these considerations is a wonderful exercise even if we canít get to a absolute answer that solves all those issues. But I canít really expect any of that to be reflected in Marvel comics, unfortunately.

    Although, I have to say, Si Spurrier seems to be considering some of those questions and translating them to his writing in a way that won't bore most readers. I'm not gushing here. I'm cautiously saying I see he's bringing some of those considerations to the table and it's needed and interesting. I'm still somewhat worried about what Kurt's conclusions will be in the end. But we'll have to see.
    I can't bring myself to pick up WoX, I'm barely hanging on to X-Men as it is.

    Iíd still read Cyclops/Marvel Girl, though.
    I'd read it too, although it's a shame they won't give Jean a better codename.
    Does it need doing?
    Yes.
    Then it will be done.
