salinea: Balder is unhappy (*D:*)
[personal profile] salinea posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Gentle scanners, I bring terrible news. Brace yourself:




Magneto now has a bald cut.

Let's be honest most of those redesign are really crappy. The female ones show a ridiculous amount of skin, Emma looks like Lady Mastermind, Magik stole Cloud's sword, and I dunno even with Cyclops' outfit. It looks like nothing. I could deal with the ridiculous white costume for Mags because LOL like any Magneto costume redesign ever stuck,

But this? This is an outrage. This is blasphemy. They went after his hair. His beautiful hair. I will never forgive you for that Bachalo.

And yeah, you know, when I said I wished for the narrative to acknowledge Erik's mourning Xavier in some way I DID NOT MEAN IT THAT WAY.

*mourns*

I guess I'll have to speed up my '90's X-Men comics so I can get to Age of Apocalypse and hope the hair will even itself out somehow.

So is Magneto going bald an attempt to disguise himself? Because.. Yeah. You're still ID'ing yourself as MAGNETO, Erik, and you must have one of THE most recognisable faces on the entire planet.

Also, Sentinels? Really? I buy into the cyclical nature of comics as much as I possibly can, but honestly, hasn't whoever keeps on building those things learnt that sixty-foot-tall robot men DO NOT WORK in any way against these mutants? Talk about a complete waste of money.

I'm just wondering whether Captain America's conceding that the Avengers never did enough to help mutants will result in him maybe saying that building giant death robots specifically to hunt down and capture/kill mutants might not be in the spirit of the American ideal.

The inhabitants of Genosha would sadly disagree on that last part. The downsides far outweigh any potential value, though (trying to destroy the whole human race on several occasions, hello). Even if you totally ignore the moral issues.

Emma is allowed to show too much skin, because her casually doing that is part of what defines her. Magik... ehhhh, she's evil, I'll let it slide. What bugs the holy hell out of me is the white.

WHY is Magneto wearing white and black? EVERYONE in Marvel is doing this now (Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom, X-Force, so on and so forth) and it's getting to the point that HALF of your universe's main characters are wearing the same damn outfit!

When are they going to become aware of this? I really want to be sitting at the meeting where the first guy realizes "Hey guys, I think... holy crap. We got a problem."

Magneto bald? It just seems so out of place.

Still not as bad as freaking Doc Ock running around in a Peter Parker skinsuit.

I can't even recognize him in a new costume/no hair look. It's not like comic artists draw faces recognizably the same through the decades!

I've lost track of the X-comics so horribly, and every time I pop into this comm or Fandom Secrets and hear something, it's completely surreal.

A MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR ERIK'S HAIR.

I kind of like that jacket Cyclops is wearing, with the fluffy collar, it looks neat. His new costume though, remains super-dumb.
And wow is that new look for Magneto weird. That first panel, gah, so much forehead.

Magneto was the only reason I had for reading this book, so they had to go and dent it.

FUTURE SPOILER: After many pointless episodes, it will come out that everyone's powers and judgement has been messed up by Evil!Magik. Thus ends the second year's worth of stories. Y'all can thank me for the money I saved you.
