Following up on brooms post, ComicBookResources one more page from the preview.




... and Quentin Quire will be Brad Pitt.... ok, maybe not Brad.... Rory Culkin.



Quentin... you HAD to say it...

God, this book never fails at making me happy. XD

still can't get behind the art... to grotesque (in the sense of the physical distortions not necissarily "ugly") they look all squishy and pinched....

And Logan doesn't think for a moment that maybe a casino that caters to all kinds of species with all kinds of powers might have people watching for things like telepaths using their powers to cheat?

Hell, if I ran a casino in that universe, even one on earth, I'd make a point of hiring people who can watch for that kind of thing, and invest in a lot of power nullifiers while I was at it.

Yeah but that's what makes it fun.

Up to a point yes, but then it just makes Logan look like an idiot.

I think that, assuming he isn't using Q as a distraction, he'd be relying more on the kid's super intellegence thing than his telepathy thing.

To be honest I don't think I have ever seen a species able to ease drop on a shielded TP conversation before. Its possible the Kid Omega screwed up and made an unshielded link.

Personally I think this whole mission is more about Logan trying to get a feel for what Quentin is really capable of more than anything else. I mean didn't Logan flat out say a few issues back that none of them have any idea what Quentin's real power set is other than TP and the occasional TK?

I don't recall him being telekinetic to be honest, I thought he was a telepath only.

Is Quentin really that much of a genius compared to, say, Beast or Dr. Nemesis?
long_silence: (Default)

[personal profile] long_silence 2012-02-17 16:56 (UTC)(link)
Yeah but he doesn't do anything with it. Beast and Nemesis invent stuff all the time, the smartest thing Quentin's done recently is turn his brain into a video game and trap Wolverine and Armor in it.

Note Logan doesn't say he is, only that Quentin SAYS he is... and Quentin's ego can draw nearby small planetoids into orbit around it.

I wish I found Quentin one tenth as amusing as Marvin the Paranoid Android.

Wait, why does the intergalactic casino have currency that can be used on Earth?
dorksidefiker: (Default)

[personal profile] dorksidefiker 2012-02-17 18:47 (UTC)(link)
I'm sure there are places on Earth and on other planets where one could get the currency exchanged, for gold or other valuable minerals, if nothing else.

[personal profile] icon_uk 2012-02-17 19:41 (UTC)(link)
A Currency Conversion agency on a planet like that would make a MINT in commissions.

Don't you usually buy chips to gamble with? So presumably the casino itself accepts/pays out in a wide variety of currency.

"What could possibly go wrong?"
Should someone ever say that, you are allowed to smack that person.

"There's no turning back...."

"Did you have to say that? 'There's no turning back?' That's almost as bad as 'Nothing could possibly go wrong' or 'This'll be the best Christmas Walford's ever had.' "

[personal profile] q99 2012-02-18 05:01 (UTC)(link)
"There's no turning back" isn't quite as bad. Normally it's when you know there's trouble already, and while it pretty much guarantees trouble, it also often comes with success.

No, no. You should be allowed to use the person as cannon fodder or as a meat shield. It makes his last words so much more satisfyingly ironic. XD

Pretty sure Wolvie when he was twelve was a bit of a dandy :)

His crimes were against fashion! Why on one occasion he only had TWO buttons on his waistcoat done up!

He was still pretty young when he killed a man and went on the run, wasn't he?

Yea, but riots and international incidents were a long way off.
