First--I get that he was "Slim" Summers, but CHRIST Cho takes it a bit too far.

The jetpack bit did make me laugh, though. :D

Quitely took it farther in the New X-Men run he did with Morrison. And it honestly worked.

Here, I find it awkwardly in between.

HAHAHA. 326 Fell Street is the address of Isotope Comics in San Francisco. I loved that place when I was living there.

That last page, the bottom left panel, Cyclops looks kinda like a bird :D

I have never read any X-Men comics outside of Wolverine ones so I have nothing else to contribute to this post /o\

Why on earth would you wear a jetpack with those long billowy rags? That's just asking for a cape related catastrophe worthy of Edna Mode's highlight reel.

I love that reel, obvious Hope has never seen the Incredibles.

Though the fact that she needs a jetpack makes me happy.
A) It means her powers are not global and looks to have a relatively short range
B) It means that there is a limit on how long she retains the power

I think maybe Scott's worries is that Hope eventually loses control, like the Dark Phoenix. The problem of her out alone might not be the danger she put herself in, but how she can control her emotions.

So, naturally, the best course of action is to not tell her any of that.

*random comics geekery*

Isn't Cyclops immune to his own power? Or he's blow his own eyelids off. How could Hope blast him that way?

I figure the beams know to stop shooting when he closes his own eyes or is preparing to. Whether is works like Havok and Cyclops having immunity to each others powers is a good question though. Course I doubt Cyclops would ever want to try blasting himself for fun to test if they hurt himself.

Has Hope ever used a power at the same time as another mutant?

Maybe she's like Black Alice, and she's not just a power mimic, but a power siphon who steals powers from mutants. So if Hope steals Cyclops' eyeblasts then she might have stolen his immunity to his own powers too.

A character whose reticence drives me up the wall vs a character whose lack of emotional discipline delights me. So satisfying!

[personal profile] silicondream 2012-01-31 19:41 (UTC)(link)
Hope's not genetically linked to the Grey-Summers clan, is she? I mean, I assume the X-Men test every incoming mutant for that possibility.

Why would the Phoenix care about her? Does it just come for any green-eyed redhead who's generated at least three milliClaremonts of melodrama with Cyclops

Because there already has been proven Phoenix manifestation related phenomena around her.

It's like they're mocking me. "Why is Hope important?" Everybody knows, but we're just never going to say it onscreen. Apparently it's widely known enough that everybody in the X-books other than Hellion and Nemesis fall over themselves to wax rhapsodic about how vital and wonderful she is, even Magneto freely and gladly gives up his sense of responsibility for the future of the mutants to her, but she doesn't know, and we don't get to know.

This is metatextually, I'm guessing, because they don't have an answer yet that doesn't sound inadequate given the build-up. But in-universe, that shit has to be infuriating. Particularly for the poor Lights, who apparently just get to be mind-controlled cannon fodder because Hope is too important to upset or confront.
