Three and a third scans from X-Force #23.


So Rahne's spent a year plus hanging around in a sideplot with her old beau Hrimhari, a Wolf Prince from the Nine Worlds who, courtesy of Thor, has been dropped into the real world.  They've returned to Utopia in the middle of the "Necrosha" story because Rahne collapsed and is carrying a half-mutant/half-werewolf/whatever baby that is killing her.  Elixir is mortally injured, and Dr. Nemesis says there isn't anything they can do to help Rahne, so Hrimhari summons Hela (the X-Men have been having a lot of dealings with her lately) asking her to save them.  Hela says she'll take his soul in exchange, but will only save one, so he'll have to choose between Rahne and the baby.




Clever, Hrimhari, clever.

Elixir hurries over, surprising the rest of the crew in the medical bay, and sets to work on Rahne.



Later, Cyclops orders everybody to go and kill Selene and all her evil henchmen, and Laura gets my favourite line of the week:



I wish a different artist was drawing this, because he really mutes the effectiveness, but the writing can still be sharp.  Given that after this story, they go right into the "Second Coming" crossover and Kyle and Yost are leaving after that, I'm still not clear on where exactly this baby thing is going.

Step right up, folks, step right up and place your bets on how quick the kid vanishes! Lost to the timestream? Kidnapped by the X-Men's enemies for brain-washing and accelerated aging? We've got 'em being reabsorbed into the mother on an outside chance -- and that one covers Rahne going cannibalistic again! Step right up!

I'm putting my money on accelerated aging, though I think it'll be more of the goes to the future(or an alternate world)/comes back older kind the X-men are so fond of.

I vote for the Ms. Marvel angle.

Hrimhari possesses the child, Rahne gives birth to him again.

...

ew.

I vote the Dazzler route: Rahne disappears for a while after Necrosha, there's one throw away line about the baby (or more accurately, it's absense) and then... PROFIT!

Employed by Elfquest? When? Pini is usually pretty good about those kind of things.

If Rahne isn't still a member of X-Force post-Second Coming, I assume her baby storyline will be covered in either X-Factor or New Mutants.

And yet she's exclusive to the title, no one else can touch her character.

Fucking hell...

Even though I know the kid's probably not gonna last, I still gotta give props to Hrimhari for that move.

You ever flip on the TV and you catch the middle of a soap opera you never wtached, and it's completely insane and you have absolutly no clue what could possibly be going on?

Yeah.

I mean, A talking werewolf, some chick with Bike handles on her head, this kid who looks like a greasy Pinocchio.... Whoa.

There's usually only about 2 or 3 pages of the soap opera--the rest is all hack hack hack cut slash murder murder murder. That might drive you away or might be exactly what you want in a book..

That's a pretty weak attempt by the colorist to add a bra on X-23 in post-production. It's like a weird reverse tan line.

It is. I wasn't sure what it was supposed to be. Is it, like, a light see-through mesh?

Aren't there slightly transparent bras out there? Not denying that it could be a bad coloring job, but still.

Awesome wolf-dude is awesome in an Old School Fairy Tale/Mythology Way. Which is pretty awesome.

I wonder how Rahne is feeling now... being a Catholic girl having a Norse demi-god baby out of wed-lock.....

Well, it'll make her next confession REALLY interesting then.

This will go fine until the baby claws its way out of Rahne's belly and Logan sees and instantly falls in love with it....

I imagine that sort of rules out a Rahne Doug re-pairing now he's back, which I'm fine with as they never made that interesting a couple.

On the other hand I can see some fun when the litter arrives, and Uncle Doug is left to babysit, with and him instantly translating wolf-kid babble into English like that episode of the Simpsons with Homer's half brother invention of the baby-interpreter.

"I want what the dog's eating"
"I have soiled myself…how embarrassing."
"The pitch is insufficient for "burp me""

What, Doug can't date a pregnant Rahne?

Hell, given the originality that writers have been displaying, I'd bet good money that Rahne and Doug hook up inside of 18 months.

Not something I want to see happen, mind, but new plots are pretty hard to come by, it seems.

Do you mean Ink from Young X-men? As far as I know he's still in a coma (though he did show up through an artist's error during the Utopia storyline).

This is the Vanisher, Teleford Porter, a classic X-men foe.
