Jean and Wolverine feel much more organic as a couple too. While X-Force isn't the greatest series, their conversations feel more authentic and both characters are themselves around each other. Neither really becomes background noise to the other.

Jean with Scott just feels almost...performative at this point, like "wife" and "husband" are just positions they play on a sports team. Honestly, I'd rather Emma be with Scott as they just work better.

I wouldn't mind Jean just being single either.


^ Good post.

It reminds me of the scan srank posted, where Wolverine climbed out of a vault of acid as a complete skeleton.


Vault of molten metal, if you're thinking of that Wolverine Annual.

It was re-posted a million times, not just by srank. But perhaps he was the first one to share it... you sure sound like a kmc grandpa, Style.

High-end feat to be sure, but it was sort of implied that it did take him a good while to recover fully and strike at the mobsters again.

Logically, he shouldn't be able to move as a skeleton of course... unless we assume that either Gaea's or Lazaer's supernatural connections are there at work. Or that he adapted far beyond limits of human physiology laughing out loud

- we've seen disgusting moments of Jean and Logan but we've never seen Scott and Emma yet, this is my saving grace


I don't believe for one second that Scott would be okay with sharing Jean with Logan. Logan I can see it, Jean I can see it, but not Scott.

precisely, and even though i'm loving the fact that "the X-Men" are now recognized as heroes, they basically are and they already did this storyline several times before... so i'm also thinking when will this "era of Krakoa" end? i'm pretty much waiting to see how this pans out, and i believe Xavier did some worldwide mindsh*t for this to happen

i don't want it to be a love triangle, and i do agree that Scott should move on with Emma, and going back with Jean is just like going back to the drawing board... again!

just my take:

- Logan stays the f*ck away from Jean and the Summers family, he's got too much sh*t on other comics
- Jean stays single, or even flirts with Logan (i don't really care because writers can't erase that freakin' ship off their minds)
- Scott moves on with Emma
- Scott and Jean co-parents their children/family

the conversations of Jean and Logan in X-Force seems organic or mature because they don't have to hide their lasciviousness from Scott, and over the years, Scott and Emma remains a solid mature couple and it's a waste that up until now, they still have no romantic moments

they don't have to be monogamous but it should still be according to their character/personality, these are really their missed opportunities in the soft reboot

I feel like there's still a chance that it all goes pear-shaped at the end, as tends to happen with Hickman's runs on big teams (F4, Avengers had big climaxes). As things stand though, he's gone (imo at least) way too far in trying to make the X-Men come across as the "other". There's no "we're Humans but a bit different" attitude anymore. And it honestly feels like a lot of the time, the mutants arrogantly believe that they're plain better than Humanity. Or at the very least more evolved.

The open relationship between the "big three" is another aspect of that, and I wonder how many writers will stick with it afterwards.

Not to mention the possibility that they're all clones anyway or something.

KMC is like a time travel machine, I swear.

It's not 2005 anymore, dya.

Logan hasn't been in many titles since his resurrection.

So, now that the Hickman arc is moving forward with Inferno, I must say it's off to a pretty good start. It appears Moira was unable to account for everything, since...

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Destiny shows up at the end. Sits right next to Xavier and Magneto in the empty Quiet Council seat, much to their dismay.

The crappiest part is that apparently, Marvel really liked the Krakoa era and wanted to extend it beyond Hickman's original plan. They're freezing the status quo so the new writers can play around a bit in the world. Hickman is leaving for a while, but it seems he'll be back later to "close" the era. He originally had it planned out in three parts, which were supposed to happen with no big breaks in between.

I really hate they did that tbh. Other than Zeb Wells on Hellions, the Hickman titles were the only interesting books tbh. Zeb is going off to Spiderman, so we'll probably be back to a very meh X-line until/unless Hickman returns.

Honestly, it would be fine, except I don't enjoy any of these other writers. The artists have mostly been solid though.

laughing out loud Don't let ngw2 see that.

I do think adding the goofy, dumb element to Magik was a good idea. The 24/7 edgelord thing got old immediately. Having her be unrestrained in a sillier way also makes for a better contrast if anyone wants to explore her going evil again.
