a light goes out







The Lights show up already Kenji-less in UXM #9, also released this Wednesday:



Uncanny X-Men #9's (which deserves your money imho tbh) creators are Kieron Gillen & Carlos Pacheco.

Wouldn't it have been more original if the monstrous-looking character with moral issues would NOT have gone down the villain route? Seems like a waste of a very interesting character to me.

dude, total agreement. Him and Laurie are the best characters of Gen Hope, a shame to waste him. Then again, X-Men are never really dead for good.

Agreed. I don't think he's dead for good, but if and when he returns, it will no doubt be as a villain.

Complete agreement there. Especially for a team that is (or at least in some incarnation was) supposed to be about "protecting those that are feared & hated b/c they're different-looking." Kinda misses any pro-transhuman points the writers might try to be making if they keep adhering to the "beauty = good and ugly/different = evil" trope.

Did Zero just die?
You know its really unclear...

[personal profile] ruthk 2012-03-22 05:29 pm (UTC)(link)
I believe they were, but they were under Kenji's control.

I think so, but they were mind-controlled?

The art is really pretty, I particularly like the panel with Hope holding Martha's brain, but I wish none of this had happened. Martha deserves some happiness and I'm about ready for the whole "Hope is sorta evil maybe" subplot to be over with.

So, about the only character introduced in Generation Hope to be the least bit interesting was killed off?

Yeah, that sounds about right.

(Well, okay, Idie was a little interesting, but she's been shuffled off too).

I don't know, I'm a big fan of Teon. (Giant adorable dog boy? All good things!)

Of course, he's going to be dead meat pretty soon. Just like the rest of them, save a creator's pet or two.

Hope must have some sort of, "Yes, I'm controlling them, but hey, they'd all be dead if it wasn't for me, so it balances out" justification going on. Plus, even if she tells them, its not like they'll be upset. Because Hope won't let them be upset.

This is just FREAKY.

KANEDA!

...Sorry, that's just sort of my reaction whenever I see the Akira-looking guy.

[personal profile] md84 2012-03-23 08:10 am (UTC)(link)
So the lesson Hope learned was that mindcontrolling people to do things they don't want to do is bad thanks to having someone using it against her.

actually, it was a conclusion she was coming to on her own. she was already hating herslef for doing. it was just the confrontation with Kenji brought it to the front.

say what you will,, but I liked Hope's confession at the end and actual open honesty with Both Kenji and the rest of the team.

the reasons she gave were all the reasons i suspected she was doing the things she was doing. People forget that for all intents and purposes, she is still a KID, and kid whose father's death is still fresh in her mind. the thought of losing anyone else around her terrified her. it doesn't justify it, but it does explain it. and the fact that she IS being honest with them now AND is (Hopfully) Willing to take advice and criticism from others is a good thing.

That was disappointing, for the sheer fact that of the members since Hope started acting like a dick, he was the nicest of them.
