Greetings True Believers!

Here is a scene from New Mutants #9 that I liked. Shows a bit how Doug and his power-set are evolving. Spoilers and enjoy!

Suggested Tags: char: magma/amara aquilla, char: cypher/doug ramsey, title: new mutants, publisher: marvel comics, creator: zeb wells, creator: paul davidson

Amara and Doug run into each other and they have recovered from their wounds/battle damage/psych testing.

Clever and slick. What does everyone think of the Doug so far? Too vulcan? He seems to be angst-free so far.

BTW, Rahne will just shit when she finds out.

Snow Crash, beeotch! Maybe Doug's new codename should be Namshub.

The question is, will Doug's opponents listen to Reason?

Wonder if Rahne's ever gonna interact with the New Mutants cast, even though she's on the same God damn island now!

Ugh...hate X-Force.

Intriguing, so now Doug not only knows how to say things, but WHAT to say to get a desired outcome.

Should also make telling his parents he's back easier...

I hope he retains at least a little of his "ordinary person" personality, though it would appear not.

Additional interesting notion, most people can look at a painting and wonder what the artist meant when they painted it. Would Doug be able to KNOW, with 100% accuracy what they meant?

"In this one, the painter wants to make enough to pay the rent, and then bone his model. This piece is interesting. The painter had just stubbed his toe, and wanted to burn things."

Wouldn't surprise me at all, it's all too easy to assign to High Artistry that which is adequately explained by a a need to put food on the table.

There's a nice scene in The Sandman where Morpheus meets Shakespeare to collect his second play (The Tempest), where Shakespeare pretty much explains that he wrote THIS scene because the actor kicked up a fuss about not having enough lines, and THAT scene because he wanted to actor to feel better, and assigns to one of the most beloved and revered plays ever written an almost pedestrian justification.

In one of the Necrosha specials, the one that explains how Doug was brought back, he pretty much read the "language" of a building and new the best entrance into Utopia. If they can stretch this language reading ability of his this much, I'm sure reading paintings wouldn't be easy for him.

I don't really see this version of Doug as being "too Vulcan". He seems to have more of a Zen calm about him, kind of like Shang Chi.

I wonder what his "processing" limits are, would attending a crowded football game drive him nuts with massed body language "shouting" at him?

Of course, Now he and Cassandra Cain have to have a...long talk.

Given the fact that even pre-mortem, Doug was in relationships with Kitty, Betsy and Rahne (Never mind those who had a crush on him), I think it's clear he's always been able to speak the language of luuuuurve.. Now he's come back older and better looking, he and Cassandra might use their hands with each other, but I don't think they'd be fists...

I started writing a fanfic years back, where Psylocke, Captain Britain and Excalibur era Douglock meet properly for the first time, and each realises that none of them are in their original bodies, and have each experienced some sort of death...

I really want there to be a support club for resurrected superheroes, but I think most of the Marvel universe would be in it at this point.

I read a fic somewhere about a support group for multi-universe folks who'd been to hell. Constantine and the others weren't too fond of Buffy.

I've seen this take on Doug's power in way too many fanfics, and the writers inevitably forget that one of the things that made Doug stand out on the NM team was that his power was exceedingly useful given certain situations, but not that powerful. Tweaking Doug's powers too much loses a lot of what made him endearing, IMO, and I was rather hoping he'd get semi-powered down after the TO virus was overwritten. I'm a little wary, but I don't find the path Wells has taken to get here illogical and he's still got copious goodwill with me for his Doug/Warlock interactions so far, so let's see where this goes.

I also confess to being a little worried about how "quirky" this will make Doug when his major trait up until now was his lack of quirks in his behaviour, but as you say, we'll see how it plays out.

I've never even heard of the New Mutants until very recently, but Cypher's powers do sound like they'd make for some interesting stories. :)

This kinda makes me scared of Cypher. He can pretty much figure out how to talk anyone into do anything from how this is shown and he sounds more robotic than human.

I don't think he's talking anyone into anything here, he's simply... explaining it better than anyone else could, the choice in what to do once it's been explained is still Amara's.

Ye Gods, remind me NEVER to image google those words again just before bedtime.. nightmares for weeks!

I get the feeling the artist is still deciding what sort of a face Doug should have now he's all grown up, but I don't think he's THAT bad yet.

I thought it was established that she was brought back by Belasco, not Illyana, but a close copy, but she was missing her soul. I imagine that one of the New X-men could have told them that if they'd asked instead of threatening to beat them up.

I totally called this. He's like a mutant version of a type of literary criticism, where *everything* is text, something to be read. In another line of thinking, if you study a person long enough, or a mechanism or sequence of events or activity long enough, you can find the pattern, and thus "translate" and predict the next action, or at least profile it.
