Greetings True Believers!

I bring you scans from a fraking awesome X-Men one-shot. Second Comings Revelations: Blind Science.

It knocked my socks off. Two reasons. An amusing storyline and the fact that Doctor Nemesis is the shit. Seriously, he belongs in NEXTWAVE.

In this one-shot Dr. Kavita Rao, Madison Jeffries(Box) and Doctor Nemesis save the day....with SCIENCE!

Plus, nazi-dolphins.

Suggested Tags: char: dr. nemesis/james bradley, char: box/madison jeffries, char: kavita rao, group: x-club, event: second coming, publisher: marvel comics, creator: simon spurrier, creator: paul davidson, creator: francis portela



The X-Club(The X-Men's SCIENCE! squad) are checking out Bastion's Mysterious Oil Rig when they get trapped by a self-destruct device. They start freaking and Rao has a life flashback-montage. Here are the funny bits.






Dr. Nemesis: "Damn you, Flipper-Fuhrer! We shall meet again!"



They find themselves in the future where the mutant messiah Hope has destroyed the world by becoming a single entity of all mutants. They attempt to discover what's going on. How will they do that? Simple!



They discover a human Hank McCoy who took Rao's Hope serum to avoid being captured by the "Hub" which the mass-mutant who serves Hope is called. But he's been captured and must be rescued. The mutants hunt by sniffing out mutant DNA so Dr. Nemesis takes out some of his own and baits a.....decoy.



They rescue Hank and Dr. N leads them away with the X-Club battle-cry.



Hank convinces Rao to make more Hope serum to stop Hope. (Ha) She doesn't want to but does. They head to Utopia and there is a science battle!



But it was all a trick! Graydon Creed had trapped them in a simulation in order to get Rao to make more Hope serum.



But Rao tricks them. She never intended to use Hope, she made a bomb instead. The X-Club makes off the rig into the water before it explodes and Box yells out "Go Team Science!"

My God, this one-shot was delightful!

I like, but the dialogue is a bit heavy on the faux-Ellis tics.

Agreed. I officially facepalmed at "Science-gaze see's all, brainfail!"

And then it just got worse with "there will be crotch punching"

Mutant kitten. You do know that you'd have doomed the human race if that hadn't been a virtual sim, don't you Doctor Nemesis?

When did Dr. Nemesis showed up? I remember him just APPEARING in one other X-men comics after their big move, but I had no idea who he was, but from what I have seen here.... he is DR. Deadpool?

I want to like the concept, but the "quirky dialogue" is incredibly grating and really offputting.

Motto. If I want to read more Elijah Snow and the Drummer, I'll bother to pick up the last trade of Planetary.

But, in the plus column, you can't ever kill Graydon Creed too many times.

I know that it's never just me on s_d, but just to check:

1) Second and fourth panels of the first scan: Kavita's O-face?

2) Tell me that the second panel of the kitten isn't taken from the "Everytime you masturbate" meme.

I recognize the pose in the first panel with the kitten.

But at the time, the dialogue was "If you're really evil, let's see you... EAT THIS KITTEN!"

Need to borrow my sister's Astonishing X-men TPB's to be sure, but I don't remember Kavita Rao being quite so... hot. I seem to remember her as portly and matronly-looking. Or is that the X3 movie?
