* a thread dedicated to the All New X-men currently having two issues out already and the Uncanny X-men which would debut on February 2013...

* i'll start off...



All New X-men #1

* it was revealed that Beast is "mutating" and dying while at it... and he actually prays to God that he may do something worthy before he dies... but his condition is kept from the others...

http://s11.postimage.org/4zvsuykoj/003.jpg

* meanwhile, Cyclops with his Extinction team (Emma, Magik and Magneto) are all over the world recruiting new mutants whose powers just manifested...

http://s18.postimage.org/o5r69dszd/006.jpg
http://s14.postimage.org/60dszgepd/008.jpg

* Scott Summers, the mutant revolutionary...

http://s16.postimage.org/8we9yto2d/011.jpg

* another DX sign...

http://s14.postimage.org/5ce57zur5/013.jpg

* this is the part where Beast got an idea of bringing the young Original Five X-men from the past to the present... from Iceman...

http://s17.postimage.org/g56162u8v/015.jpg

* in the past, young Hank was about to quit the X-men...

http://s13.postimage.org/lfzszo0vb/017.jpg

* when Beast arrived and invites the O5 of the past to the present... saying he needs the past Scott to stop the present Scott from committing mutant genocide...

http://s12.postimage.org/so4enk2a5/019.jpg



All New X-men #2

* O5 find it hard to believe... Beast even spoils to Jean that she would develop/learn telepathy...

http://s10.postimage.org/mtkx0cd15/004.jpg

* O5 is still unconvinced, until Beast dropped the bomb and said Scott had killed Xavier in the present time... and from there, the O5 went with Beast to the present time... with Jean wondering why the school was now named after her...

http://s13.postimage.org/3kptefifb/005.jpg
http://s18.postimage.org/7x39t1qs9/009.jpg

* Wolverine attacks!

http://s13.postimage.org/4hw8natxj/011.jpg

* the X-men already knew about Beast's condition...

http://s12.postimage.org/itdro7hgt/014.jpg

* Wolverine talks to the O5, with Jean managing to develop her telepathy, inducing Wolverine to sleep... revealing Wolverine's thoughts are disgusting and how he hates Scott... from there, they learned that the present Cyclops is all over the globe recruiting new mutants... hearing the news on TV that there's a new mutant at the University of Dallas, the O5 impulsively took the X-Jet, hoping get there and confront the present Cyclops...

http://s12.postimage.org/itdro7hgt/014.jpg
http://s11.postimage.org/eg8c396o3/017.jpg

* lol on Wolverine's --- "It was her. It was really her. Jeannie..." --- freakin' pedophile moment... laughing out loud

* not really a fan of Brian Michael Bendis but i'm hoping this f***ed-up yet interesting storyline will turn up well... Stuart Immonen's art is pretty decent, i just hope he will also take over the art on Uncanny X-men, but that was already assigned on Chris Bachalo (i hate his weird art)...

* keep the fingers crossed for this arc... smile

the ninjak
Well you should change the OP to UX starting in 2012. smile

But I AM LOVING ALL NEW X-MEN!
I grew up on the original 60's Xmen reading my fathers old British reprints and this series ROCKS!

I couldn't be happier with this series along with Wolverine and the X-men right now.

It's a genius idea really.
Personally the kids reacted in just the way I would have imagined them too when confronting the future team.
I can't wait to see how present Scott reacts.

I find the fraudulence on Beast's part quite unappealing. Scott's only noticeable crime in that entire clusterphuck of an event known as AvX was killing Xavier yet Hank wants to purposely lie that he's bringing some sort of "Mutant Apocalypse" in the future? His definition of the term is pretty strange then seeing how Scott's actions indirectly resulted in the reignition of the mutant race. Or I guess he probably liked the times when mutants were an endangered species on the brink of extinction. /shrug

All New X-Men isn't the absolute train-wreck I've expected from Bendis, though it's not exactly superb either.

Yeah Beast was definitely manipulating the kids when he spouted that nonsense. The excuse is he is desperate because he is "apparently" dying and needs the O5 to make Scott see the light.

Originally posted by Lek Kuen

True. This Jean can hang around for a while and recreate that love triangle that defined the 90's X-men drama. History has already been ripped apart though thanks to Beast's intrusion and hopefully an interesting solution can come from it.

Hasn't stopped Logan before. And Scott would aim for Jean just so Logan won't get her.

I predict Jean giving them both the finger and going back in time and saying something along the lines of "The future ain't bright, and neither are you two".

All New X-men #3

* and with all honesty, i'm confused... maybe this is the start of wreck that Bendis will commit all through out the series... cross your fingers...

* with the time setting "ten days ago"... the Revolutionary Cyke proclaimed the abandoned and former Weapon X Facility will be the new Xavier School (their new homebase)... and because they are considered as fugitives, he thought that it would be a perfect hideout...

http://s16.postimage.org/i3z94mo91/002.jpg

* and without any explanation, they experienced "glitches" with their mutant powers...

http://s11.postimage.org/4gwq8zf2r/005.jpg

* and with the time setting "ten days ago", we will now witness the time when they freed Emma in prison... and the Scott-Emma loveteam died with it... funny, Emma does not even show any gratitude to them for saving her, ok... she's the White Queen and i completely understand her for being angry because Scott betrayed her, blindsided her and took her portion of the PF... but, bringing back the AvX event? blaming Scott for the death of Xavier? that's super late... and Scott should've rebutted, "ok, so you want to admit that it was me who killed Xavier and not the Phoenix? then admit first that it was really you who flirted and goaded Namor to attack Wakanda, it was really you who wanted the X-men to worship you and it was really who wanted to just burn the earth and restart the mutant race!" there are many points that Emma can be angry at Scott but not because of Charles' death... i just hate the script...

http://s8.postimage.org/lvm3pgmxh/008.jpg

* at first, Emma does not want to be part of their team... but because they are fugitives now, she does not have a choice but to be with them... holy sh!t, Bendis... i just hope you'll fix Scott and Emma...

http://s14.postimage.org/beo5yfsld/010.jpg

* they will encounter a new mutant... a male shapeshifter, who shapeshifts into a girl... laughing

http://s10.postimage.org/cd4uli8i1/013.jpg

* a powerful confrontation between Scott and Erik... i just wanna see Scott kick Erik's a$s here... if you want someone to be apologize about something, don't be an a$shole by goading him... Erik wants Scott to admit that Scott and only Scott himself (without the influence of the Phoenix) deliberately did all the sh!t that happened in AvX... until Emma stops them...

http://s11.postimage.org/96rri8owj/015.jpg

* climax: present Scott's confrontation with his past self... "what the hell do you think you're doing?" --- a line that makes the O5 Scott more mature than the present one... a satisfying finale, but a very confusing episode as well... is Stuart Immonen's art getting better? or am i just happy that Bachalo's art is not yet seen?

* your thoughts? embarrasment

* regarding their powers getting messed up, Emma theorizes/explains that it is because of the Phoenix, an after-effect of hosting it... Magneto rebutted he never hosted the PF yet his power is messed up too, Emma explained that Scott might have something to do with it, causing the tension between Scott and Erik...

* i don't know what the hell is happening...

* figuratively and mentally --- yes... and all it took was one physical kiss, and Namor was completely blinded... i might have been missing something, i might be wrong but i already like Emma so i would like to think that as per the revelation in UX by Gillen that Emma ****ed (and used) Namor only in their minds and not physically... at least, Emma is still more faithful to Scott than Jean...

* anyway, for the fourth issue, the cover of the preview depicts a fight between the O5 Scott and the current Scott... and yes, according to ninjak, the writer intentionally screwed up the powers of the current Scott so that the O5 Scott would actually stand a chance... but eitherway, if it's Scott vs Scott, they cannot hurt themselves with their powers so it would boil down to h2h, and the current one can still kick the butt of the O5 one...

-Pr-
I dunno. Jean might have been emotionally torn, but she never outright had sex with anyone.

I might be wrong, but when I read it, it was implied that Namor and Emma actually slept together.

Darth Jello
I'm confused. Why does Beast have a fatal mutation? Is this going to be a call back to his original experiment + Maddicks experimentation + Pestilence virus + manipulation by Infectia? At what point is Beast trying to change time?

Also gotta point out that Mags isn't Erik, he's Max and Jean is developing, that makes Wolverine and Cyclops ephebophiles, not pedophiles.

-Pr-
It's the evolution of his mutation. Like when he went from gorilla to cat? It's just another one, but this one is a lot more painful, and he's afraid it might be too much for him.

Darth Jello
But his mutation in its current state is unnatural since his genes have been majorly ****ed with at least four times. Currently their basically the result of a aggressive virus.

All the mutants involved are having re-alignments in mutant abilities.

Though I agree to a degree, Beast's manipulation of his own mutation could well be the cause of him dying from his gift.

And on the subject Scott's new version of his Optic Blast...does that have anything to do with the X on his visor in the early Avengers promo shots?
Or is that visage Havok?

It was telepathic intimacy on the Astral Plane. Even though it wasn't anything really physical, Emma's adulterous intentions clearly pissed off Scott, and it does matter since in this case they were essentially godlike entities being hosted by the universal embodiment of psionic energy.

-Pr-
So it was on the astral plane. I still don't think that's excusable, given that Scott, as much as, if not more than anyone, would know how real that is to a telepath.

Even more so seeing as they were semi psionic beings during the event.

* yep, they had sex telepathically, and Emma admitted that when she and Scott were having a dinner in their minds while the AvX finale was going on... weird, Emma even wanted to storytell to Scott the "details" of her intimacy with Namor, hadn't Scott angrily interrupted her narration... and afterwards, Scott somehow poisoned her drink --- paralleling him blindsiding Emma and taking her portion of the PF in the true battle...

* very real to a telepath, true, (no wonder Jean was so pissed off in the Scott-Emma affair) and i hate every single bit of it... and come to think of it, they could've removed Namor from the X-men a long time ago (just to save the Scott-Emma relationship), just like they did when the PF left Namor (he just basically disappeared from the story)... Namor's absent because his relationship with Emma is not needed anymore... and i'll be damned if he comes back for Emma now... screw you, you fishman-****, don't ever come back... mad

* yep, because Hank is an intelligent douche, he just simply f***ed up his own mutation... it's his own fault that his own mutation is killing him... but that fact is still unexplained on-panel iirc...

* Havok, could be... but his signature energy color is supposed to be blue, not red... sadly, i still think it's Scott since the cover for the upcoming Uncanny X-men this 2013 was already released, and it depicts Cyclops with his new costume, art by Bachalo... sick how tacky can Marvel get? they kept Scott's skullcap (he looks much better without it) and now they f***ed up his visor... and he looks like an alien religious leader...

-Pr-
I'm pretty sure Emma told him because a part of her still loved him, and she felt bad for what she'd done, so wanted his forgiveness.

peejayd
* yup, she did say she still loves him... but Scott got pissed off... well, who wouldn't? haha... smile that's why the initial reaction of Emma (when Scott & Mags freed her) is weird... she confessed she still loves him at that time, but now she doesn't?

* and the reason: (1) she claims Scott left her in the hands of humans after stealing her PF, (2) she claims Scott betrayed her and left her for dead, (3) she claims Scott murdered Xavier...

* so her affair with Namor definitely goes down the drain, huh? i mean, really? we all know Scott took the responsibility, the brunt of wrongdoings of the P5, eventhough when he was carrying 1/5 of PF, he was the sanest and most level-headed... but to put him down like this is inappropriate... i like Emma to be with Scott but for her to have enough audacity to be angry at Scott knowing that she had a telepathic affair with Namor, i mean, that's poor scriptwriting...

-Pr-
The problem is that they're trying to paint it as Cyclops sympathising with the Phoenix, kind of a "sorry it got so bad, but its heart was in the right place" kind of thing.

Which is bullshit.

All New X-men #4

* the confrontation! the mouth is speechless, but the thoughts are overwhelming... who wouldn't, if you're the current Scott? and you see your dead wife alive again in her teens --- the time when you fell for her the first time?

http://s13.postimage.org/53fxiv9hj/004.jpg

* battle ensues but O5 should've been thinking --- hey, that's Magneto! and he's retreating?

http://s8.postimage.org/ykd853kph/007.jpg

* Magik teleports them back to their base, and Magneto informs Emma what had transpired... she seems not too thrilled but in the last panel, it leaves me wondering... Emma's insecurity over Jean seems to be affecting her a bit (the "Jean Grey. That's all i need" comment), and i would like Bendis to delve over this for a shot of another Scott-Emma romance (pretty-pretty please?)...

http://s12.postimage.org/3va5civwd/010.jpg

* on the other side of the coin... it seems Jean is very much affected with the scenario, and "that look" to Scott spells a thousand profanities... eventhough O5 Scott technically doesn't have anything to do with the current Scott...

http://s13.postimage.org/7q9ooels7/013.jpg

* the best Scott-Emma dialogue we got since when? X-men Regenesis? i like this scene... with Emma carefully, delicately but somehow subtlely interrogating Scott's feelings when he saw Jean... heck, i want to see Emma jealous! and they really do jive with each other --- they think, plan and strategize well together...

http://s8.postimage.org/nxjvj1thx/014.jpg

* and finally, the douchebag of the douchebags is going into cardiac arrest... funny how Kitty tells current Bobby to stop screaming everytime the O5 walk into the room...

http://s13.postimage.org/4wti7o2iv/016.jpg

* so much for that --- less action, more emo... things are still going well for me though... keep it coming, Bendis... don't mess this up, boy... you've got a very interesting scenario here and you can redeem yourself (somehow) since you've turned Avengers into a circus...

the ninjak
Emma actually was the voice of reason in this issue...

She pulled Scott out of his confusion and his obsession of Jean's reemergence.

My only disappointment with this issue was with current Bobby. Who simply "freaked out" whenever his past self arrived. I expect more from Iceman, not just a shocked disbelief and retreat into the background. Although I'm pretty used to it by now throughout the years....Bobby has always been the one who lacks in initiative yet excels in powerset.

The only times he kicked ass was in random X-men combats and Operation: Zero Tolerance. Which was a kind of kick in the butt for him.
Oh well.
This issue pretty much predictably told it's tale.

Hank making the Blackbird untrackable was a bit of an odd surprise but otherwise no real surprises considering the real time-gap.

Which is something the comic should be having fun with. But isn't besides the first issue.

Agreed... I'm deeply unimpressed with present Scott.

He has no real drive or motive. Nothing the reader can back up.

So the Phoenix event resulted in mutants re-emerging.......

Good stuff so re-join the X-men's cause....but NO! Scott must be head honcho one way or another. He must lead the new Brotherhood of Mutants in the name of irony!!!

Lame.

Scott's better than this. I know he is. I expected more from Emma as well, her escape was a mess and her logical reasoning of the conflict between the modern and old team was way too late.

It's almost as if they had to write Magneto, Scott and Emma so badly to coincide with the plot.

And Jean was used as an excuse to cause a rift between the two teams due to her realisation of her telepathic gift.
What a coincidence.

-Pr-
Having him get all twisted over Jean was kind of disturbing too, tbh.

the ninjak
I find his relationship with Emma being more troubling.

A woman he has confided in throughout the last bunch of eras suddenly thrown away due to Phoenix possession. One would assume both would've agreed that the force controlling them was an overwhelming intent.

And now Emma is "telling it at is it is" whilst Scott withdraws into confusion.
An odd tale.

It's just Marvel wanting to break them up, and having no real idea how to write an adult relationship falling apart.

It's just Bendis writing. Emma even said that they reached a point of Godhood where the slightest thought became ticking timebombs. In other words even stray thoughts became reality.

Also Emma forgave Cyclops for having psychic sex with the Red Queen during SFX.

http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/2276/67780682.jpg

Emma actually does have a lot to be angry about, just nothing Phoenix related (Which is down to bad writing). She's been taken for granted and that's mainly down to the writers over the last 5 years and the decimation situation I guess.

http://i48.tinypic.com/fa4qqv.jpg

The problem was the way the relationship was being written. Cyclops was married to the mission (A noble mission). And Marvel wanted to tell a story where Emma Frost was being taken for granted. Her love for Cyclops was unconditional. At the end of Regenisis she poured everything of hers into the relationship (Her money, her dream of teaching, her time) and it ended up biting her in the ass.

It's a shitty story but it's the one Marvel wanted to tell. I'm glad Cyclops was right in the end though. Kind of lessens the blow.

-Pr-
Just shows how bad the writing is; It put me off so much that I actually thought that WAS Emma, I think.

And yeah, the taken for granted thing is how they sold it, but it was completely OOC for Cyclops. The entire point of their relationship was that they were two people that had sought acceptance of their true selves, and had found it in one another. Then Fraction/Kyle&Yost came along and ****ed it all up.

From the start, it felt like they wanted to break them up, even though they were arguably one of the more realistic couples in comics.

Exactly, the whole point of the relationship is that they were both dysfunctional.

It's completely shit writing. And I honestly expect even less from Bendis. The bar has been set so low. We're going to have Emma being the insecure ex-girlfriend. And we're going to have another Madeylne Pryor on our hands. Emma is most likely the mole which is a bit shit I think.

http://i49.tinypic.com/ac5t6x.jpg

I don't just blame Fraction though, I blame Brubaker too. And Yost. Pak resolved the Jean thing in Endsong...don't know why it keeps getting brought up.

-Pr-
Brubaker? Really?

As far as Jean goes, I've always gotten the impression that Marvel at large just prefers Jean, and they've been looking for a way to get Emma out of the way.

Brubaker set all the plot threads up for Fraction. It all began in Messiah Complex.

Oh well, at least we know Adult Jean will probably never come back. There wouldn't be any point in showing Jeans reaction to everything twice.

Beast also really screwed up by bringing the O5 to the present. The Phoenix never healed the M'Kraan Crystal and now the Guardians of the Galaxy are going to have to try and fix the mess.

I suppose that's true, sadly.

Those thought bubbles with Cyclops' reaction to Jean were just... Well, ugh.

Yeah, I thought that would have some horrible repercussions. I just didn't know if Marvel would explore it properly.

I also just saw this morning that someone on ebay is selling Morrison's entire run on X-Men for around 100 USD including postage.

* hmmm... ok... present Hank is on cardiac arrest, so O5 Hank tries to cure his future self physically and mentally (with the help of Jean)...

http://s9.postimage.org/tkioa1ejz/003.jpg

* present Scott tries to recruit Benjamin the shapeshifter...

http://s7.postimage.org/voirywwbv/007.jpg

* O5 Hank shows some balls against Kitty (ok, that seems weird)... just click the link and you'll see...

http://s9.postimage.org/v4x6zx1pr/009.jpg

* while inside present Hank's mind, of course Jean sees the events of her 616 life... and Logan is still there, that runt...

http://s7.postimage.org/igxmukjvv/011.jpg

* Logan comes up with this "voting scheme" for him to have an excuse to kill O5 Scott... what a stupid midget... starts blaming O5 Scott for something he will not do for many years to come, haha...

http://s2.postimage.org/60oqfq8rd/013.jpg

* voila! the All New Beast!

http://s14.postimage.org/ehj5hz3f5/014.jpg

* the voting continues... but this time, it's about the Original Five staying in the present time or going back...

http://s2.postimage.org/abhmzwyxl/016.jpg

* poor O5 Scott!

http://s1.postimage.org/5xqpff6fz/017.jpg

* ok, so Jean is really angry at O5 Scott... and i don't get it... he hasn't done anything! and with present Scott and Emma not doing well, both Scotts have zero lovelifes at this point...

* and Jean seems to be ok with Logan? no matter how Marvel wants to make them look like a better couple than Scott-Jean, we all know that Logan-Jean will not work, is very stupid and full of sh!t... it's like the Scott-Jean produces someone like Cable, and Logan-Jean will produce someone like hmmm... Feral, or maybe a Morlock or somethin'... ahh, stupid Wolverine...

Konton
lol

Like the X-Men have never ventured into the future/alternate timelines to change things before. Stupid Bendis

How has Beast been upgraded? If they are showing Beast some respect, I might pick this up.

Wolverine is already pinning for adolescent Jean?


Cannot say I'm surprised.

nothing as of yet in the way of feats but his body changed again, back into a more ape-like form, but he looks larger.

as for cyclops (magneto and emma frost were also altered by the phoenix) his optic blast fires a messier beam, and with the visor off the beams scatter in a bending stream. he also seemingly got a power boost cause young cyclops and current cyclops met beams (both had visors) and current cyclops won

http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/psychogundam1/cyce1_zps2db7f046.jpg http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g386/psychogundam1/cyce2_zpsbd5d4052.jpg

PR might be getting the good cyclops development he wanted

Golgo13
Actually looks good, thanks. Beast looks pretty formidable there. I hated Morrison turning him into a cat like thing.

* i like the series too... so far... although there are some loopholes --- like it was Scott who should be angry at Emma, not the other way around; current Scott in emo mode in #4, then in #5 it seems that nothing happened; the blame falls on O5 Scott, when it was the current Scott they were really after --- it's still a good read...

* O5 Scott vs current Scott --- current Scott should really win... but i think, since the PF is said to have been messing with the mutant abilities of current Scott, Emma and Magneto, i think this is not an upgrade but a downgrade... it was shown that current Scott was having a hard time controlling his powers even with his visor on, which is stupid...

* another loophole, in #5 it seems that their powers are back to normal, when current Scott was talking with Benjamin (the new guy), he does not seems to have any problem controlling his powers, and he was only wearing glasses, compared to a much safer visor... and Magneto was shown using his powers to lift/levitate a huge steel boulder or somethin', when in #3 he cannot even use it to stop a speeding vehicle...

psycho gundam
His beams are possibly too powerful for them to be controlled properly by that visor. Magik got more power, as noted by cyclops and herself. Colossus should have some alterations as well

ODG
^ Yea, he's obviously going to get a new X-shaped visor with his new costume which will presumably help control his power. And although Ive really liked Cyclops' most recent costume a lot (definitely his best look), I think Immonen can pull off his new design.

I didn't read the issue. Does Original Cyclops asked current Cyclops since when he's such an enormous douchebag?

Bendis using that whole "no memory no paradox" schtick he used with Sentry when they got sent back to the past.

psycho gundam
sure, but she's like , and she would handle things herself. she's a far more self-reliant character in this and knowing the future should make her more pragmatic than even teen cyclops should be. she already knows what chuck will do and that he "did" do to her future self.

i have a feeling she's going to rise as the star player in this

magik got amped, and colossus is mia, but he might get an amp or changes to his power. either way, pr and charlotte's get extended christmas presents

another thing i noticed that was confirmed was that cyclops' new optic blast have all those crazy effects arching around him and i suspected they aren't just for flare, they actually do damage cause the tree near the path of his blast was hit by some of it.

Well done with the thread jayd.

And Jean's eventual hatred of O5 Scott is completely disrespectful of everything they have gone through throughout the years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Her choosing of Scott over Logan! Their marriage! Their alternate reality raising of Cable in the future! The Dark Phoenix Saga!!!!!!! Their lover's link!
Scott remained a pretty heavy X-men until the last 10 years and even then his relationship with Emma was warranted due to her death. He had to move on.

Her reaction was crappy at best for the fans. I understand he got possessed by the Phoenix Force and activated an very extreme X-Force.
But the guy did what he had to do.

My only understanding of Jean's response to the psychic realization of her future is the events that happened after her death. Which is fair.

But the previous events heavily out way the later.

She's just bitching...or Bendis is trying to write women again.

Chauvinistic writing of women in comics is common amongst these writers but this is Jean Grey here. The perfect girl. Understandably young but she better get her shit together in the next issue.

Yeah I see Scott being able to focus his beams in many multiple directions eventually with the right visor.

The skies the limit.

I wonder, if all this happened to the O5 and eventually they go back to their time and get mind wiped by the Professor, shouldn't Jean had recovered those memories after becoming the Phoenix?

Jean practically ignores the sh!t out of Logan eventhough Logan openly cares for her... and i think the love triangle materializes when Claremont decided to "shake things up"...

16 year old Jean was pretty pure, that's true.

Yeah, though to be honest, Jean, for the most part, wasn't nearly as bad as the movies made her out to be.

Zack Fair
Meh.

I like Scott more than Logan. At first I didn't really care about him because I thought he was boring. So when i was a kid it was all about dem claws and "lets go bub" Eventually outgrew that, but I wouldn't mind Logan having a piece of dat ass. Just to see what might be/could have been instead of just having Logan pin for her like a lost puppy. But I suppose that little love-triangle sells or something.

the ninjak
Logan trying to get everybody to vote to kill Scott was simply shocking.

If I was Kitty I would've asked him to hand over the Headmasters position of the school.

Poor form Logan.

All New X-men #6

* it starts off of Jean having a weird nightmare --- present Scott & Magneto burst in her room exclaiming they finally found her, and tells her to go with them because "they" are going to kill her... all of sudden, a naked hairy midget dude charges and stabs her in the neck --- wow, what a dream!

http://s13.postimage.org/t1g93j8wn/003.jpg

* after that, Kitty Pryde came in and calms her down... Jeans asked her if the others (O4) are doing okay, and Kitty replied yes but with a weird look, and the last panel showing O5 Scott frowning...

* O5 Scott is frowning --- who wouldn't be? he's definitely out-of-place in the Jean Grey School... everyone's been giving him a cold shoulder, and the girl he loves (or least, at this point, have a crush on) told her to leave her alone... so maybe as a homage to the X-men movie (and as a revenge from it), O5 Scott "borrowed" Logan's motorcycle and wore his leather jacket, but Logan heard him (heightened senses) and followed him...

http://s8.postimage.org/q9nukxe6t/006.jpg

* while everyone's cold on O5 Scott, everyone's warm on Jean, overflowing concern and stuff... Jean panics when she was bombarded by voices in her head (she's hearing thoughts of many people in her surroundings)... Kitty effectively helped her, and confessed that the adult Jean taught her that... then Storm also came in and offered help, and said that since she managed to convince the O4 to stay in the present time, means they listen to her, so she's the leader, and not O5 Scott... nice logic...

http://s9.postimage.org/7rw9m9ren/009.jpg

* meanwhile, O5 Scott went inside a convenience store and marvelled at how the water are now in bottles... lol... soon, the cashier recognized him and says he looked a lot like the fugitive Cyclops printed in a magazine... well, the conversation was abruptly diverted when O5 Scott said that he'll take the magazine and will pay for it... he reached down in the jacket's pocket and was surprised Logan has fine lump of money... at this point, Logan caught up with him...

http://s8.postimage.org/56waw50k5/011.jpg

* Logan pulled O5 Scott's ears and told him to go back to the school, but O5 Scott laments on Logan that everyone's giving him a cold shoulder eventhough he didn't do anything... then O5 Scott shoved Logan, but hurt himself and Logan boastfully said that it's his adamantium skeleton, uhm, unbreakable bones... by which, O5 Scott feints to go back and suddenly lashed out a quick optic beam at Logan which sent him flying and down on the ground, and hurried away still using Logan's bike... O5 Scott's blast is maybe not that refined yet (or another writer's idiocy) since Logan immediately got back up and follows him...

http://s7.postimage.org/7r7gq4rdn/013.jpg

* O5 Warren seemed worried that O5 Scott left (he's flying and sees O5 Scott in a motorcycle, with Logan in a van following him), and he's also worried he still doesn't get to see his present-day counterpart... well, this is a lucky day for him because he came across his current self and believed every word he said... because good ol' Warren does not lie... lol...

http://s9.postimage.org/3l7ackjcv/017.jpg

* finally, someone managed to catch the scene (where O5 Scott blasts Logan) on video and uploaded it on YouTube, and tipped it off to Mystique... and wow, the videoclip had O5 Scott on close-up and Mystique noticed this "Scott" is young... she became curious and wants to see this personally...

* now, how come that in the video, O5 Scott is wearing his visor? because when he did that, he was wearing his eyeglasses...

http://s9.postimage.org/gbgkmrxmn/018.jpg

* the next issue's cover shows us Mystique at O5 Scott's back, diabolically hugging him... hmmm... will this be O5 Scott's first...??? lol... can't wait... slow paced episode but i enjoyed it... my only disappointment is, it lacked an update on current Scott and his team, i want to see what will happen in Scott and Emma's relationship, the gap between Scott and Magneto, and the two new members... 18 pages is still too short...

That's really strange, seeing how Jean's genocidal madness(when possessed by the Phoenix Force) resulted in the death of several billion alien lives. Scott, despite the AvX fiasco, never went as much over the top as Jean did during Dark Phoenix.

Scott's(both original and current) peers are turning out to be colossal douchebags.

Scott's new powers seem to curve his beams into a straight beam with circular waves accompanying them. A new visor may focus them in peculiar ways......

How is young Scott being a douch????????????


Anyways, good issue.. Angels meeting with Angel turned out the way I expected. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

But what I'm truly waiting for is a good interaction between the two Bobby's. They were my favs as a kid.

It was also cool to see Scott do a reversal on Wolverine. As the confused rogue who escapes the mansion on a motorbike type. A true role reversal compared to the movie.....

An OK issue that needed more pages but am interested to see how Scott kicks the brotherhoods asses.

All New X-men #7

* ok, so O5 Scott is still wandering around the city... he went to a bank, maybe guessed that his older self has something in there... luckily, yes... and with more luck, he spotted a female human specie banker who is an X-men fan or a pro-mutant (weird, huh?), identified by her "X" button pin on her shirt...

* she seems starstrucked as if she had seen a celebrity, so she allowed him to see what's inside the deposit box ---

http://s17.postimage.org/i8jee53fj/006.jpg

* third panel, bingo! it seems Wolverine is not the only one who has a "Jean Grey obsession"... or what in the blue hell was Jean's hairlocks doing in there??? it can't be Madelyne's... it's from the real thing...

* ok, so the box has some sentimental stuff from Scott and Jean... that's what it was, really...

* but not everyone in the bank is an X-men fan... so a mutant hater called the guards... fortunately, someone caught up with O5 Scott...

http://s9.postimage.org/nzirjcapb/008.jpg

* but he is not the real deal... guess who? yeah, you're right!

http://s12.postimage.org/oxalad07h/009.jpg

* Mystique shapeshifts into a cute black-haired girl and seemingly convinces and inspires O5 Scott to stop his older self... of course, he IS Scott Summers...

* Mystique has a good point here: eventhough the current Scott is off the rails, everyone (well, not everyone, really) has such respect for what he had done, the sacrifices he had made, that nobody wants to... deal with it, Cyclops haters! stick out tongue

http://s9.postimage.org/r57ynaipb/011.jpg

* so like the police in some shitty movies, Wolverine arrived late... he's already in his tail, and Mystique beat him to it??? benefit of the doubt, maybe he dropped by in a nearby bar to get some beer first... or Mystique is a better tracker...

* Wolverine seems to be in his game now (and did not actually became a douche in this episode) and dropped a good line: "killing is the easiest thing, but saving someone is a lot harder"...

http://s4.postimage.org/liemjhyyl/014.jpg

* unrevealed in the shadows, Mystique was talking to someone... this hot blue-skinned sociopath is into something...

http://s7.postimage.org/3lqkmg78r/015.jpg

* back in the JG School, Kitty trains the O3: Hank, Jean and Bobby... and rebellious O5 Bobby just got his a$s handed to him by Kitty...

http://s18.postimage.org/nnx9mufvt/016.jpg

* in the end of this episode, we see emo O5 Scott giving Jean Grey what he just took from the deposit box, and maybe it's the most sentimental thing in the Scott-Jean marriage ---

Uncanny X-men #1

* it starts with the traitor... this traitor asked for Maria Hill and he starts the narration maybe a few days after his "story"...

http://s7.postimage.org/3tdzewqu3/004.jpg

* according to the traitor, not all people are convinced that the Avengers are right... some people now support the X-men, the mutants and Cyclops in particular... this ongoing "revolution"...

http://s17.postimage.org/8o4wz3m5r/006.jpg

* the story began when a new mutant Fabio Medina manifested his powers in public and the police arrested him without any reason but because he is a mutant...

http://s8.postimage.org/7d6rea9sl/009.jpg

* here comes Cyclops and his X-men! along with the newly-recruited Tempus, the girl first seen in All New X-men, who has the mutant power to create a "time bubble", controlling time and space within a dome...

http://s7.postimage.org/hfnvyxn8b/011.jpg

* in a few moments, out came the Sentinels... battle seems difficult on the X-men's part since the powers of Cyclops, Emma and Magneto are "broken"... and Cyclops said they need to "improvise"...

http://s17.postimage.org/t9oa4qt4f/013.jpg

* nearing the conclusion of the narration, the battle ended somehow with Cyclops unleashing a massive optic blast that seemingly obliterated the Sentinels... the traitor describes it as "a lucky shot" since Cyclops really has no control over his powers...

http://s7.postimage.org/prjn06km3/015.jpg

* the traitor is somehow prematurely revealed immediately in this very first episode of the series, and he is --- drumroll, please --- a bald-headed Magneto!

http://s18.postimage.org/k2zyubufd/018.jpg

* pissed at Cyclops for killing Charles Xavier and for tweaking his mutant powers, he vowed Maria Hill that he will help them have Cyclops "self-destruct in public"... gone are the days when this guy kneeled in front of Cyclops, praising him and literally begging to be part of the X-men...

Darth Vicious
Liked the 1st issue of UXM. Hope this means the return of old Magneto. Didn't like the bold look. It seems they did it for shock value or to hide his identity until the last page.

AlmightyKfish
Other than the human sized sentinels, the sentinels everyone seems to be fighting are the standard ones from the very beginning. Wonder what happened to all the insane varieties that popped up in the past decade...

Although it's probably just for the narrative sake of noob x-men and x-men with broken powers can't fight giant piloted O.N.E sentinels with a ton of anti mutant gear.

Uncanny X-men #2

http://s13.postimage.org/8scf9im7b/005.jpg

* seriously, Scott? Emma already asked you if you want to get back together and you declined??? if i were you, i jumped at the very first chance i get, that's Emma bloody Frost, Scott... but kidding aside, it's good that they made peace... and i was hoping to see a great leader in Scott without a telepath lover...

* then Magik arrives, they will hold some kind of an orientation for the newbies... this noting the amp version of Magik's power...

http://s2.postimage.org/8pidz6721/007.jpg

* blanks filled when being a mutant or an X-men means you don't have to leave your family... well, only cold-hearted parents would reject their own child when they discovered he/she is a mutant, right?

* another worht noting is the weird look/glance Emma made to Scott when Magneto told Eva that she can visit her family since she is not being held as a hostage...

http://s14.postimage.org/guftj5drl/010.jpg

* the new Charles Xavier's School for mutants...

http://s16.postimage.org/mtdahfwc5/012.jpg

* they all went to visit Eva's family... Magneto did not go with them, and none was suspicious... Magneto tips them off to the Avengers...

http://s21.postimage.org/v19kgvnc7/015.jpg

* Eva's reunion with her mom... seems to good to the true...

http://s24.postimage.org/s2trku58l/017.jpg

* and even after the events of AvX, Steve Rogers here continues to poke Cyclops and his team... yes, Scott is a fugitive, but he didn't do anything wrong... why would Cap leave him be? maybe because people with "Cyclops was right" t-shirts does not only pester Wolverine but also Steve...

http://s16.postimage.org/3xc7bcjud/018.jpg

* i just hope for once, Scott would kick Steve's ass next issue... and report to Havok what Scott did to him... smile

All New X-men #8

* quality time on two Warren's... but before current Warren can tell O5 Warren what happened to him, the HYDRA attacks...

http://s22.postimage.org/vevne3hi9/image.jpg

* Captain America and Beast talk... off panel but it's obviously about the space-time continuum warped O5 X-men...

http://s24.postimage.org/xeq1aqfzp/image.jpg

* O5 Scott approaches, and stunned Cap...

http://s23.postimage.org/495tr450r/image.jpg

* then O5 Warren freaks out and wants to go home...

http://s15.postimage.org/9phqnv27f/image.jpg

* and Jean just mindraped him...

http://s10.postimage.org/nu5csm3ah/image.jpg

* and i find it very disturbing since these O5 X-men are still in their teens... but all in all, still a nice episode...

peejayd
* finally!!! X-men's rebuttal on the whole AvX thing... we now bring you ---

Uncanny X-men #3

* the confrontation: the Avengers wants to arrest Scott for killing Charles Xavier... pfft! same old shtick Cap... he just can't get into his thick skull that the brunt of chaos that happened in AvX also involves them... not to mention, they have Wanda...

* funny they pointed out that it was stupid for Hulk to wear an armor... stick out tongue

http://s22.postimage.org/cbgiyuv9t/image.jpg

* Emma clearly points out that it was really Tony Stark's fault in the first place when he built a machine that split the PF into five and merged into them... Stark's answer was weak and stupid... he did not fix anything... it was the combined power of Hope and Wanda that took out the PF, not Stark...

http://s14.postimage.org/p1opq6eu9/image.jpg

* and the Scott pointed out the obvious: whatever the Avengers are doing, mutants are still persecuted, and they are probably deliberately ignoring that fact...

http://s11.postimage.org/q9jxcjmn7/image.jpg

* a very tense moment where Hawkeye aims his arrow on Scott... acknowledges what they have done to his brother, Havok, and Magik even pointed out that if the Avengers are not planning to kill them, why bring out Hulk? Ms. Marvel stupidly tells them no one is trying to kill Scott, completely ignoring (again) the fact that Hawkeye has his arrow targeted to Scott at point blank range...

http://s12.postimage.org/mmea0zm19/image.jpg

* before a battle transpires, Tempest put the Avengers in a time bubble, effectively putting them out of action... and while it came out in a little itsy bitsy panel, Scott's speech - for me - was outstanding... and another DX sign: screw you, Avengers!

http://s16.postimage.org/lzqzqasd1/image.jpg

* when they returned to their base, Magneto admitted his "betrayal"... it was now revealed that Erik was playing as a double agent for S.H.I.E.L.D and he had to give them something to have their trust... while this does not sit well for Scott, some see it as a brilliant move...

http://s14.postimage.org/f9qmy9tb5/image.jpg

* TV reports that the Avengers are still in the time bubble, and Magik quips that while they're at it, they should go to the Avengers Tower and clog their toilets and switch their underwear drawers... stick out tongue and i like the interaction between Scott and Emma... they can be sweet and romantic teammates without any commitment with each other...

http://s21.postimage.org/rp2egxwav/image.jpg

* but Scott has a different plan: for the second time since the events of AvX in Wolverine and the X-men #10, he once again drops by to the Jean Grey School... clearly wanting to have more X-men with his side and maybe another shot of confronting his past self and the Original Four...

* and again, for the second time since resurrecting and blasting the hell out of Ord in the Breakworld story arc and making his optic blast as a beacon for the team, Scott utters these words: "To me, my X-men..." so shut it, Logan, the X-men is not yours, you stupid hairy midget... stick out tongue

http://s23.postimage.org/xu6bdddqz/image.jpg

* a solid episode, and another one to look forward to... and i'm liking this!

All New X-men #9

* the training continues on O5 presided by Kitty Pryde... she and Jean talks in their minds about what Jean did to O5 Angel in the preivious issue... but Jean ends up like a spoiled brat...

http://s24.postimage.org/otz1w1v11/image.jpg

* this "training" involves the X-men's favorite robots - the Sentinels!

http://s12.postimage.org/awxz4t7j1/image.jpg
http://s21.postimage.org/ioak2uwc7/image.jpg

* frankly, the O5 sucked! they failed the simulation test prepared by Kitty... they are too immature and too inexperienced for this... which makes the current Beast a complete wacko... he dragged them into this, and see what happens? none...

http://s22.postimage.org/rioc5ld8h/image.jpg

* and here's a kicker: even Kitty was surprised that current Beast created an imaginary "mutant genocide" to be committed by current Cyclops, just to convince the O5 to travel with him from past to present... sorry, Beast fans but he's really a douchebag...

* and even after being told by Kitty that entering someone's mind is improper and uncouth, she did it again... this time, he read O5 Scott's mind and out comes Mystique! O5 Scott might be fantasizing about that blue-skinned fox (well, who wouldn't? she can basically grant every man's dreamgirl)... surprisingly, O5 Scott shrugged her off and walked out...

* a loose end seems to pop out in my mind: what happened about the time when O5 Scott gave Jean the wedding invitation of their current counterparts? it left Jean crying... are they in a "mutual understanding" stage now? because it seemed Jean was jealous and curious rather than concerned for the team's safety like Kitty...

* well, in some weird way, i still want O5 Scott and Jean to be in each others' arms... they are basically made for each other --- at this point in their lives...

http://s22.postimage.org/iepx55bnl/image.jpg

* Mystique is up to something... she just entered a prison disguised as Maria Hill... and oh! what if it was Mystique whom Magneto called out in Uncanny X-men #1? hmmm... oh well...

http://s16.postimage.org/wzsdcqaut/image.jpg

* and freed Lady Mastermind... the daughter of "Dude Mastermind"... stick out tongue

http://s21.postimage.org/60usqchfb/image.jpg

* O5 Angel finally confronts current Beast about this "mutant genocide" issue... but current Beast was obviously beating around the bush... he's terrible liar, for a brilliant scientist... yeah, he brought the O5 to avoid the "mutant genocide" not the witness it... but the fact is, current Cyclops doesn't have any tendency of doing it... he basically addressed and guaranteed to help both human and mutant friends and supporters on national television... current Beast is a liar and a hypocrite...

http://s8.postimage.org/3s4rqikx1/image.jpg

* and as promised on Uncanny X-men #3, current Cyclops and his X-men, the Extinction Team teleported to Jean Grey School! perfect timing! and in my opinion, Cyclops' Team is much more capable of training the O5 properly than Wolverine's... call me biased but that's how i see it... and given the timeframe, it's logical to believe that Wolverine cannot lead his X-men while he's also busy hanging around with the Avengers, busy having is own solo adventures, busy banging the chicks so he would look like a macho stud when he is actually an old man in his 40's, and busy drinking beer in a nearby bar...

http://s4.postimage.org/tj5p5aji5/image.jpg

* the statement of the month --- "To me, my X-men"... mutants, come home to papa... smile i hope the O5 goes with current Scott... and if that doesn't suit you, here's another "visit" made by "papa"... check out the ending of Cable and X-Force #6 ---

http://s23.postimage.org/ft3cks7kb/image.jpg

* this "visits" are making me excited! i hope Cyclops visits the Uncanny Avengers as well and create his own version of it... I mean, Cyclops leading a team of X-men and Avengers combined! seem far-fetched but at this point, with good amount of plot and storytelling, they can pull it off... so far so good... smile

Still not crazy about Beast's look.

lol, of course Cyclops is a better trainer; he's only been training X-Men since he was 16.

All New X-men #10

* pfft! All New X-men is supposed to be about the Original Five, and that moronic midget is still included...

http://s10.postimg.org/brgw345ex/image.jpg

* anyway, Mystique, accompanied by Lady Mastermind and Sabretooth, decided to rob a bank at the O5's expense... Lady Mastermind created illusions to make it seem that it the X-men who wrecked havoc...

http://s18.postimg.org/d747758t5/image.jpg

* the confrontation! current Cyclops and his team arrived to Wolverine's homebase... Cyclops tried a different approach: he reasoned that if he was in his right state of mind, he would not kill the man who raised him... and finally dared anyone to kill him at that moment if they think he killed Xavier in his own free will... hah! not even Logan himself stepped up...

* maybe deep inside of everyone, they knew that Cyclops was right, he was heavily influenced by the Phoenix Force, and they are just comfortable of blaming Cyclops for teh death of Xavier without any reason at all...

http://s10.postimg.org/khikhpca1/image.jpg

* dead air... until Krakoa attacks! but Magik took care of him...

http://s14.postimg.org/622q4asi9/image.jpg

* Cyclops revealed that they've opened a school and even named it after Xavier, much to the dismay, shock and disgust of Wolverine and his team... pretty anitclimactic... this conversation should've been the first --- for Cyclops to reveal that they opened a school named after Xavier, then Cyclops dared them to kill him...

* anyway, what in the blue hell was that on the second to the last panel? Jean calling Logan as "James" in a slightly romantic way? that's eewww... can't they just make Jean stay the hell away from Wolverine in any kind of reality in the Marvel Universe?

http://s23.postimg.org/z9rs5x6p7/image.jpg

* one of the tense moments was when Cyclops got into Beast's ugly face... he may not have directly told Beast how much of a douchebag he is for dragging the O5 from the past to lie about the him starting a mutant genocide but he did inject something --- he is doing this "mutant revolution" because that's what Xavier trained every X-man to be... a warrior, a fighter who does anything what he believes is right... just like what Beast did, he just did what he think is right, even at the cost of perverting the space and time continuum...

http://s11.postimg.org/gd2lefegj/image.jpg

* so Cyclops' team teleported away and will come back to fetch members from Wolverine's team who wishes to go with them...

* but this is getting more interesting... imagine the length of time the O5 have in Wolverine's place, they did not even discuss to them the events of AvX... so O5 Scott reacted that this is not the story they heard from current Beast when he invited them to the present time...

http://s8.postimg.org/va0zx1t79/image.jpg

* meanwhile, S.H.I.E.L.D, led by Maria Hill, investigated the chaos in the bank and they managed to identify the culprits... and intel revealed that Lady Mastermind used to be a member of the X-men... and they might be talking about the time when she became part of Rogue's team...

http://s11.postimg.org/cabkfckc3/image.jpg

* contemplating on the team members who will join Cyclops, they are definitely sure the Stepford Cuckoos are going... Jean saw someone walking away through the window, and i can't identify who it was... then S.H.I.E.L.D called...

http://s16.postimg.org/bemu5smwl/image.jpg

* Cyclops' team came back... expectedly, the Stepford Cuckoos were the first to go... but there's someone else who will join --- to be revealed in the issue! this member's decision even shocked O5 Scott, Kitty, Storm and even Logan... who in the blue hell is it? is it Jean? one can only wonder...

http://s15.postimg.org/5jqfsp4nf/image.jpg

* personally, i want O5 Scott to join Cyclops' team... he's clearly at odds with the people in Logan's team... and if stupid people still wants to push a relationship between a dirty old man like Wolverine and a teenage Jean, then maybe Jean will stay... but if Jean will go, that's good! but this will weaken the psychic defense of Logan's team, and they will only depend on that brat Quentin Quire, and Psylocke if she decides to aid them...

* is it just me or Immonen's art is getting uglier and uglier as the series goes by?

-Pr-
lol @ Magneto channelling Yoda.

Better Cyclops dialogue in this issue too. Maybe the book will finally become decent.

TheGodKiller
Raoul, what would you give to have Hickman write the X-titles?

Not much, tbh. I'd pay more to just get rid of Bendis.

Uncanny X-men #4

* okay, so in the last issue, after Cyclops and his X-men humiliated the Avengers by putting them in a time bubble (courtesy of Eva/Tempus), they came back to their base, Magneto revealed his fake betrayal to the S.H.I.E.L.D and they proceeded to visit Wolverine's dumb school...

* this particular event happens simultaneously with All New X-men #10 when Cyclops arrived and talks with the school members (you'll get the picture)... but the story focuses on a different perspective while the confrontation was going on...

* the Stepford Cuckoos "greeted their mom"...

http://imageshack.us/a/img694/8796/ux1l.jpg

* the Cuckoos took their grudge in the astral plane, and obviously, Emma cannot counter-attack but she managed to let them see her memories in the time of AvX when the power-hungry Phoenix-influenced Cyclops took her portion of the PF and "left her for dead"...

* now, this may seem to make Cyclops in a very bad light (because it never told what further urged Cyclops to do that, i.e. Emma had a psychic affair with Namor), but as the context goes, Emma's intention was to explain to her "daughters" why she went MIA in that particular time...

* so it's only logical that the Cuckoos kinda forgave Emma because of this revelation...

http://imageshack.us/a/img577/3089/ux2s.jpg

* meanwhile, at Cyclops' homebase, the newbies are like mice playing while the cats are away...

http://imageshack.us/a/img843/540/ux3lj.jpg

* back to Emma and the Cuckoos, they talked about the time-displaced O5 X-men... they are just there to mess with Cyclops' mind (wow, that's Beast's plan? ridiculous!) but they're still around...

* then the Cuckoos proceeded to belittle to capabilities of Jean and it's only logical since Jean, at this point, is basically a newbie to her powers as she had only just unknowingly unlocked her telepathy recently... the Cuckoos revealed that they were reading Jean's mind without her noticing it... surprisingly, Emma told them not to do that...

* but since it already got underway, Emma asked what Jean was thinking, and the Cuckoos revealed that she was thinking about her love for O5 Scott (awww, how sweet!)...

http://imageshack.us/a/img23/5153/ux4b.jpg

* in All New X-men #10, we learned that after Cyclops offered Wolverine's team to go with his, they teleported away to let them think and ponder, and teleported back again...

* now this is what happened when they teleported from Wolverine's base back to theirs...

* what a mess! of all the rooms these teens tried to mess with, it's the Danger Room!

http://imageshack.us/a/img507/1363/ux5m.jpg

* so after that, Cyclops calmly explained to these kids that no one should ever know that they are there (because Cyclops and his team are branded as fugitives)... and they are dumbfounded that the Danger Room holograms are not real... they even thought Magik teleported them to another place...

* and speaking of Magik, this is her shining moment... in the previous episodes, we learned that she doesn't have any glitches in her mutant abilities and she even claimed to be more powerful than before, but now, everything's catching up to her...

http://imageshack.us/a/img12/9788/ux6h.jpg

* another shining moment was the conversation of Benjamin (the shapeshifter) and Tempus... as a fan of Captain America, you should really feel bad that you just put your idol into a time bubble...

* another issue was about the honesty of their teachers and trusting a man like Cyclops... okay, i might be biased here but, if i will choose a team led by Cyclops, Captain America/Havok (Uncanny Avengers) and Wolverine, i'd pick team Cyclops (well, this is post-AvX of course! when Cap revealed how much of a douche he really is), or go for Reed Richards' Fantastic Four... stick out tongue

* to put it up plainly, Wolverine's school is dumb... i get it that Logan cares for the kids, doesn't want them to get hurt, doesn't want them to fight, doesn't want them to kill... oh my goodness, Wolverine just opened a freakin' kiddie playschool! it's like teaching your kids that Santa Claus exists...

* on the otherhand, Cyclops wants to train these kids to be adapted to the real world where humans hate them, fear them but because of their vision, they will still save and protect them... a very noble cause... although i do agree that if until now, Cyclops doesn't fully disclose the entire scenario to these kids, that's bullcrap... he should have told everything from the very start... but come to think of it, what is left for Cyclops to tell?

http://imageshack.us/a/img442/1985/ux7t.jpg

* the defection from All New X-men #10 was revealed! the member from Wolverine's team who went with Cyclops' is none other than (drumroll, please) ---

http://imageshack.us/a/img90/689/ux8e.jpg

* yeah, O5 Angel... big deal... stick out tongue

* i was hoping it would be Jean... or it could be more than one, at least (besides the Cuckoos)... until the celebration was cut short by Magik's screams of agony? pain? i don't really know... but it should be noted that if this persists, Cyclops' team really needs another teleporter for backup...

* so two members from Wolverine's team (if you count the Cuckoos as one) defected... i hope there's more...

Uncanny X-men #5

* our main guy's the topic of S.H.I.E.L.D... they actually looked at Scott's "speech" (when Tempus put the Avengers in a time bubble) much more of a threat than a rally for peace and unity (in my opinion)... just because the X-men humiliated the Avengers, yeah they clearly humiliated them in front of national TV, so the Avengers does not want to talk about it... go ahead, you pompous team of overrated schmucks, say "no comment"... laughing out loud

* well, they replayed what Scott had said... and they just didn't get it... well, here you go ---

http://s2.postimg.org/5jejatz95/image.jpg

*and just like what nwg202 had posted earlier, it was revealed that Dormammu was behind Magik's outbursts... and this was Magik storytelling to Scott what is happening to her...

http://s8.postimg.org/u79v5c5mt/image.jpg

* the reason for this was, because like the other members of the Phoenix Five, Magik's mutant powers are also broken and by using this broken power, it's "ripping my world apart" as per Dormammu...

http://s10.postimg.org/8jkof92qh/image.jpg

* so as Dormammu went about to play god and bully Magik in Limbo, she says Dormammu forced her to reveal her darker side... Darkchilde...

http://s13.postimg.org/6m4xrxx2f/image.jpg

* now, while i don't know the real capabilities of this Darkchilde persona of hers, i really think this is a waaaayy hotter art by David Finch ---

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a2/XMENINFR001_COV_COLv2.jpg

* apparently, this Darkchilde is stronger and a more powerful version of Magik, much like a normal Son Goku who just turned SSJ1... and this was actually a recap, it already happened... Magik told Scott that in that encounter, she managed to somehow make Dormammu retreat...

http://s2.postimg.org/kr8b0ev95/image.jpg

* the rest of the team hears another scream and outbursts from Magik... the newbies are clearly startled and terrified, but the Cuckoos are still cold...

http://s23.postimg.org/66btyjhiz/image.jpg

* on the other hand, O5 Angel has a chance to talk to Magneto which seems awkward since the Magneto in his time is a villain...

http://s23.postimg.org/g51dyrgcb/image.jpg

* now, Triage (Christopher Muse) tried to make pass to (maybe one of) the Cuckoos, they act as one, they think as one and weirdly so, speak as one... they just ditched Triage and revealed they made him forget what he's about to say since they know that he's thinking about them... and even threatened to make Triage forget his sex... now, what the hell is that? telepaths can force you to be a homosexual by making you forget your sex? how cruel... how i wish the Stepford Cuckoos would have a lovelife...

* and speaking of lovelife, Tempus reveals her new admiration to Emma... and it's none other than Scott Summers! and she's not even a telepath, can you believe that? Tempus says Scott is a beautiful man... so she just moved on from her crush for Captain America onto Cyclops... and the funny thing was, it just made Emma frown... hell yeah! be jealous, Emma, and maybe soon you'll realize that Cyclops is the man... stick out tongue

http://s24.postimg.org/dws9ejfk5/image.jpg

* surprisingly, Magik just teleported the whole team to Limbo... but she claims she did not do it... maybe next episode we'll Dormammu's payback...

http://s10.postimg.org/ikypg1ul5/image.jpg

* fresh from jumping fences, O5 Angel is about to have the first battle of his life... and how will the team fare against Dormammu, not to mention the battlefield is Limbo, Dormammu's in a homecourt advantage... sh!t is about to happen next...
