hmmm interesting points. (its been a long time since i read that arc... but in general i really liked it.)

i disagree about the stripperific costumes as it was equal opportuunity stripperificism. (again i am amazed Alex's costume stayed on at all.... he had ahem... ALOT of... things... covered by so little ;D

i don't necissarily agree with all your opinions, like Illyana (who is also one of my favorite characters) i think that in ultimately sacrificing her self she DID in fact prove she was redeemable. but thats a whole other argument (also now they seem to be reverseing that in that Illyana OWNS who and what she is now).

while i don't think the sexism was blatant or intentional, i do see where it would be... problematic. Madelyn's ending was... sloppy. and i dont like that Illyana was depowered. But yeah like you said, overall it was an intruiging story that had problematic elements when read together.

i loved the 80's punk look they gave the girls (and the Jem and the Holograms look for Psyclock... minus hood/cape.) don't get me wrong i love a good hood cape just not cover that fabulous costume :D

also love the fabulous purple psionic butterfly... (i'm starting to wonder if it was't this arch that TURNED me gay, or made me aware i was already gay... :D

i would also like to note that the elements themselves were great, power, corruption, betrayal (all very greek). i think that ALL those elements showing up in one story (though compelling) was overwhelming.

i'm just surprised because to be completely honest, women do not fair well in this industry for various (mostly inconsequential) reasons, i thought the first woman to have such a big impact in comics was Gail Simone. I didn't know who Louise was, Didn't know much about Barbara Kesel (also during this time period i think)

to know that there were women out there who had SUCH impactson this industry that I love is very heartening :D
