One scan from X-Men 15 from Newsarama

http://www.newsarama.com/php/multimedia/album_view.php?gid=3495&page=2


and now the context....

The X-men have been called into what appears to be an Indian Reservation. A friend of Dani's is dying, as she gets weaker the demons she trapped within her soul will most likely break out. As a favor to Dani, the X-Men have come into help with Illyana presumably either still restrained or otherwise occupied, our other resident Spellcasting mutant comes in (or they might have just needed her to teleport them, eitehr way, here other skill set will no doubtly come in handy here :D

Doug proved quite handy with magic when the need arose recently in Limbo, since he can read any spellbook known.

Should Doug's powers just automatically make him really good at magic? He might not have the mystical mojo to back his spells up, but they should still go perfectly every time. (I love that whole "talking to cities" thing that they have him doing. It may be stretching it a bit, but it works.)

That last panel's a bit odd, the shading and colouring on Pixie and Storm are two very different styles.

Hell, if I discovered I had magical abilities I'd be scouring Google to find out what I could *really* do. Even Storm would probably benefit from a basic meteorology course.

She's using Yahoo Answers to find spells.

Most of the replies are just jokes by Doc Strange. Half the time he trolls her it ends up on FailBlog.

Would they rather she have the raw power and no knowledge of it?

Now, I would be getting some recommendations from Doctor Strange or someone they trust so she doesn't get into the wrong books.

Storm could actually benefit from looking up magic too. I'm pretty sure her mother's side was full of powerful priestesses or something, so it's been remarked that she has potential. And in the timey-wimey Limbo of Illyana's childhood Storm became a full on sorceress.
Power of the elements and physical prowess is all very well and good but knowing some magic wouldn't hurt. Unless it would I suppose. Magic can be harsh on its users.

IS it me, or are writers making Pixie more and more... bitchy/sacrastic?

Can she cast any other magic than the teleport spell? I haven't seen it if so. Furthermore, she seems to use that more than her actual powers of flight and pixie dust.

She now has her alternate persona of "Nightmare" living inside her, ready to emerge if she needs her, so may be more aware of such things.

Well after the Limbo stuff she went to Dr Strange. I don't think it was ever shown though.

The expression "force feed [her] a sandwich" is used to shame women about their bodies. Shaming/body shaming/body policing is one of the things we look for as moderators at Scans Daily. We ask that you not use those sorts of expressions on Scans_Daily. Thanks.

I like that the X-Men have a magic user. It makes sense in the larger universe.

They have Illyana, Amanda, they HAD Forge, they could probably call up Dr Strange, or at least Shaman and Talisman at short notice.

Ever since I started playing Dragon Age II, I've been imagining Pixie's with Eve Myles's (as Merrill) voice. It just says "twee Welsh spellcaster."

As to what Megan's been reading:

Megan: KLAATUU... BARADA... *coughmumblemumble*

From: [personal profile] long_silence
I love that Pixie is taking the initiative to learn about magic on her own. Dr. Strange and Amanda Sefton don't think she's ready to learn. But she keeps getting dragged back to Limbo every time Illyana messes up. And her teleportation spell isn't always enough for Megan to defend herself.

She wants to be useful and she doesn't trust Illyana to bail out the X-men against every magical threat.

I like. It makes sense to have Pixie pick up magical skills besides a teleportation spell. Keeps her from stagnating and eventually being pushed to the side in favor of newer (most likely male) characters.

I get why Ghost Rider doesn't appear in more stories, he's a walking Deus Ex Machina when used in the wrong hands or story, but it makes a lot of sense for him to just pop in on some of the more mystical and terrible happenings.
"Goddamit, WHAT have you been doing here!? Why does nobody clean up their own messes anymore? NOOOOO, they need mister bones for face or the X-Men to do it for them! When I was the Spirit of Vengeance way back when-". And so on.
