Wolverine gives credit where it's due...

One scan from X-Force V2 #27, one and a half pages from X-Men Legacy #237

A few weeks ago, this panel was published, as Cyclops explains that his plan to defeat the Super-Duper-Sentinels is to send Doug "Cypher" Ramsey into the future so he can hack their system and deprogram them all at the source. Wolverine points out a flaw...

At the time I noted, fairly vehemently, that comment came across as petty, spiteful, and basically a generally shitty thing to say about anyone, especially given the context that Doug had died due to a gunshot wound whilst saving Wolfsbane.

Now we see a nice moment of realisation....

In a longago post, I covered that when Doug was first introduced, the first thing we ever saw him do was cause the destruction of a Sentinel, when he and Kitty hacked a Shaw Industries system.

So in essence, Doug has come full circle. He talks one of the human guys battlesuits (Which looks sort of like the result of a one night stand between ED-209 and the Runaways Leapfrog) into helping them get into the complex, and whilst Cable runs interference, Doug confronts the Master Mold Master computer system, which engulfs him in a little light tentacle porn as it tries to delete his mind and assimilate him, but....

Doug's idea of improvisation is fairly.... destructive in Sentinel terms. Suffice to say, the San Fancisco scrap metal business is going to be in SERIOUS moolah when this is all over. But something like this comes at a cost, and when Wolverine and Domino, who have been keeping the Sentinels Distracted with X-23 and Warpath, rejoin Cable at the complex, we find this scene....

Aawww  Wolverine shows due respect in the manliest way he can...  You can practically hear the 1980's power chords playing as he carries his fallen comrade out into the light (and hope he doesn't wallop the poor guys head into the doorframe en route)

These are the times we find out who we really are
This will be when a true friend stands at your side
One more like me
Who wants to believe in the truth of all we experienced
To live again to jump back into the fight
Someone like me who wants you to live

A++++++ use of song. I thought I was the only one who knew any of Styx's newer stuff.

Well, as a Canadian I've known and loved Larry Gowan for a LONG time, and I was exposed to Styx at an early age. You can imagine how excited I was to find out about Cyclorama (I haven't heard the other album except the I Am the Walrus cover), and to find a good, old-fashioned power ballad in the grand style on it.

And a man Gowan's age really shouldn't look *that* good in leather pants.

Doug looks oddly feminine in that last panel.

You'd think that Land would go to the gay porn for a bit like that.

Of course, then Doug would be carried over Logan's shoulder, his taut, spandex-clad ass sticking up in the air, practically begging all who see it to--

Oh my, it seems to have gotten awfully warm. And what were we talking about again?

Depends on how hurt the unconscious person is, though. If he is badly injured, carrying him over the shoulders could kill him (a broken rib could pierce his lung, for example, of he could drown in his own blood or vomit), carrying him princess-style is much gentler and less likely to do harm.

When and how did they resurrect Doug?

[identity profile] wcitymike.myopenid.com 2010-06-27 06:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, I'm glad to see him back, but must admit to finding it slightly amusing; he's been dead for a while.

I've afraid I've not been following comics for a while. Is there anywhere I could find a uber-brief description of what the heck the Necrosha event was (or might you be so kind as to abbreviate that as well)?

[identity profile] wcitymike.myopenid.com 2010-06-27 07:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeep. That be one complicated plot. :) Anyway, I have to admit, I always liked Cypher's abilities. Good to see him back, although I hope the "let me rewrite you into an explosive fireball" doesn't become a trend ...

I suppose being dead gives you a good insight into whether or nto making someone else be dead is actually bad or not.

Doug Ramsey is Canadian?

Well, he's referred to as Canadian by the original poster, but I couldn't find anything in his wiki to say that he was.

Assuming that Wolverine is still Canadian, and I don't think that there's been any retcon to that effect, Doug Ramsey, if he is his compatriot, is also a Canadian.

According to Merriam-Webster, "compatriot" is an accepted synonym for colleague, which Cypher certainly is to Wolverine.

Now you have 1980s powerchords playing in my head.

..... and now, the guitar solo from the Bohemian Rhapsody.

Ahh, Kitty, the first of Logan's ethnic-but-not-too-ethnic female teenage sidekicks.
