salinea: Magneto going *?* (wtf)
[personal profile] salinea posting in [community profile] scans_daily


Meanwhile in Generation Hope, they've been having their own mini-schism with Laurie fighting Hope (literally) because she doesn't want to fight this battle (nor Idie to either), Idie stops them telling them they ought to stick together as a family; that her parents resisted when people came for her to burn her as a witch.


Logan and Cyclops ought to listen to Idie sometimes.



No shit, Prodigy. Oh wait, that's because you were scared shitless of Hope. Nevermind that, that was great characterization of you.





I'm just so weirdly happy to see X-kids interact with one another :)

Bah. My favourite of the New X-Men is still an angsty, handess ball of misery, so I can't enjoy this very much.

You think they watch AVatar the Last Airbender in the Marvel-verse? I know they had drawing of the nation-insignias in an issue of FF, but this DOES seem something from that show, if not dozen other shows.

I see the Young X-Men, and all I can think of: Do you even remember Wolf Club or Ink?

Yes. I remember Wolfie dying, but I constantly wonder what they are doing with Ink and his tattoo artist. He could be one of the more powerful of the X-Kids, but they aren't even doing anything to help him out. At least not visibly to us.

Heh. I love Dog-boy.


It's always such a mixed bag, seeing the Academy X kids. On one hand, it's nice seeing that someone remembers they exist. On the other hand, it's a direct punch to the emotional groin to see how few there are left and how horribly tramuatized/injured the remaining kids are.


Academy X were some of the first comics I ever owned and I recently went home and got the chance to read them again. It's such a bittersweet thing...

As usual, I'm out of the loop but the context is telling me this long let's-sit-down-and-chat scene takes place before the long let's-have-Cyclops-and-Wolverine-stand-around-and-bicker-and-posture scene in the Schism #4 scans posted earlier. Probably like 10-15 minutes earlier to give everybody time to make up their minds and go gather together. How long has that damn Sentinel, that's apparently been scaring the crap out of everyone, been waddling towards their little Mutant Island? Is it just standing there 100 yards from the shore leaning forward to listen in and hear when they're done talking so it can kill them without interrupting? Is it just trying not to be rude about the whole thing?

Maybe it broke down and all this drama is over nothing.

Let's see now...


Pixie can't do the finger wiggles but can do the magic. And is still on Utopia.
Hellion can't fight, but still has his TK. And is still in Utopia
The Stepford Cuckoos are still in Utopia.

Couldn't the 5 group up and teleport reinforcements home?

Julian can fight though. Even without his hands. In the last arc that focused on him, Fables of Reconstruction (which occurred about 5 months after Second Coming), he used some really fine control TK to pummel an out of control Karima Sharpandar into a braindead coma.

Also he supposedly got to keep the robot hands from the Age of X reality, but I don't know if anyone's acknowledged that, or if anyone is going to.

Julian just didn't want to fight to protect Utopia.

I like that look on Anole -- the monster arm actually stands out more when the artist uses his old Academy X design than it does when he's drawn as a gremlin-lizard thingie.

I really hope that the New X-men side with Wolverine. We already know that Hope is going to force the Lights minus Idie to stay with Scott, but if Wolverine doesn't have any kids on his side other than Idie and Quentin Quire, that would just be a waste.

From: [personal profile] batman
Wow, this was one interesting issue.

I would have loved to see the Academy X kids making their choice because it sounds like it would make one compelling parallel between how Hope runs her team. From the clues we get, it sounds like there was a fairly adult discussion about the relative merits and detractions of staying to defend Utopia, and it's one between friends given that Santo was cracking jokes and while Julian disagreed strongly against it, he's still going along with the group consensus. While there's tension, it's not tension that is simmering hatred but a disagreement.

That's to be contrasted with how Hope runs her team. Everyone's commented on how she used her powers to coerce Laurie, but it's even worse than that. She coerces Laurie with her powers and then uses psychological manipulation to get Idie to work with them by resting her hand on her shoulder and playing on her need for a family, and then uses Laurie's desire to protect Idie to get her to stay. It's horrible. They're not a team for her, they're tools for her to coerce and manipulate as she sees fit.

It's interesting, given that the Academy X kids had three leaders (Nori, David and Julian) and Hope is basically a dictator.

She's Daddy-Cable's daughter all right, that's pretty much how he worked with X-Force back in the day. They were soldiers to him (at first) rather than people.
