New Mutants #41

After the team almost all got killed horribly in the last arc, New Mutants #41 is a downtime issue. Blink shows up, sees everyone's acting glum, and teleports everyone to Madripoor to party down at their local, somewhat-later-than-everyone-else celebration of the Chinese New Year.

This, for some reason, involves David Lopez deciding to go a little exaggerated and cartoony from time to time. I will warn you now that Roberto has gone out for the evening and decided, "You know what? I'm going to do my best Donkey Kong impression. Ladies love that!"

Then Doug facepalms. It's great.

(I'm sure I'm supposed to know who that girl with Warlock is. She says her name is Trois and she's from High Town. Then again, maybe she's new.)

HE always implied he was experienced with the ladies, but I doubt he and Juliana ever got that far
why, because 14 year old kids never have sex?

Of course not, but I'm not going to assume they did, and there was never one hint, suggestion or implication that THOSE two 14 years old had had sex. Berto's thoughts about her were always those of idealised "first love".

Berto's entire personality was built around the fact that he was a "golden boy" suddenly out of his depth. He was the only child, good looking, good at sports and from a family whose fortune was on a par with Richie Rich and Scrooge McDuck. He was rather spoiled and was used to succeeding at everything he turned his hand to, and assumed that women would be the same. Of course the running gag of his character was that the only people he impressed were people he wasn't interested in, and those he wanted to impress thought he was just a kid trying too hard.
