We need more of this sort of thing in comic books. Especially a title like the New Mutants

Following the defeat of a big bad last issue, where they found out that in the future, Doug would rise to become a sort of benevolent dictator; the Truefriend (a sort of parody on Doug being Warlocks SelfSoulFriend)

Exposure to the alien mentality a while back, and which had been commented on would have a cumulative effect on Doug's brain, and he'd become smarter and smarter, learn to hack the TO virus completely and take control of the world using technorganic matter, making everyone happy and contented, whether they wanted to be or not).

A time travelling Cannonball and Karma came back to try and prevent that, and whilst too late to prevent Doug meeting the alien mentality, they were able to defeat future-Doug from travelling back and taking control early). Present-day Sam and Xian stay to see their friends again, though Sam and Dani are not at all sure that Doug knowing about his future will prevent it, and to his credit, Doug is also unsure.

But that doesn't mean it has to be all doom and gloom and they go out for a meal (Art here is by Felix Ruiz and I have to say I like it more than the previous art)

"Carpe Margaritas!" - I've heard worse philosophies for life (Even if I'd rather have a 7-Up, personally)

I like Blink's "Yea, that could happen to any of us!" take on the matter.

Already has for most them probably. Its not like Blink isn't related to Apocalypse or anything...

If your margarita is that color, you should not be drinking it.

I've been really enjoying the New Mutants when they do stuff like this. Just a bunch of mutants hanging out, talking, having fun. I've enjoyed some of the more heavy plots, particularly the one with Illyana's super awesome revenge plan, but for the most part I feel like the book really shines when it's just people being people. (The Blink party issue is one of my new favorite comics.)

Aaaaaaand cancelled. Sigh.

So it's not one of the many titles being reset to issue 1?
If not I'm sure in a few years they resurrect the title, just a shame that it has to end

We simply don't know yet. They've only announced the relaunches in October and November so far, and we know there are more books starting in December and January...

Is Blink even old enough to drink? Wasn't she the same age as Jubilee? Jubes has been 18ish for years.....

Jubilee is an immortal vampire now, so she'll be 18 for a while.

Husk, Chamber and Monet are all treated as adults though.

if the title had more moments like this early on, I'd probably still be reading it. I like this kind of stuff a lot. But after giving it a try up until it got dragged into multiple crossovers, something just didn't gel. Maybe the lack of Rahne and the treatment of the New X-men kids in the very first issue soured me to the whole thing. I know some writers love drama between characters, but I'd much rather read this than characters I like being assholes to one another.

Motto. Never got to pick it up, too confusing, but the personalities were always decent and fun.

Have they ever addressed that when Doug died, he was in his mid-teens and is now an adult?

Oh, man. What about Kitty? Have they interacted at all? I'm just remembering when she and Rahne went to his grave and phased down. I forgot how close they were. He's one of those characters that I liked and kind of regretted not knowing much about.

Ugh. So much they could do there. What a waste.
