Lateral Thinking

Three and a third scans from X-Force #23.

So Rahne's spent a year plus hanging around in a sideplot with her old beau Hrimhari, a Wolf Prince from the Nine Worlds who, courtesy of Thor, has been dropped into the real world.  They've returned to Utopia in the middle of the "Necrosha" story because Rahne collapsed and is carrying a half-mutant/half-werewolf/whatever baby that is killing her.  Elixir is mortally injured, and Dr. Nemesis says there isn't anything they can do to help Rahne, so Hrimhari summons Hela (the X-Men have been having a lot of dealings with her lately) asking her to save them.  Hela says she'll take his soul in exchange, but will only save one, so he'll have to choose between Rahne and the baby.

Clever, Hrimhari, clever.

Elixir hurries over, surprising the rest of the crew in the medical bay, and sets to work on Rahne.

Later, Cyclops orders everybody to go and kill Selene and all her evil henchmen, and Laura gets my favourite line of the week:

I wish a different artist was drawing this, because he really mutes the effectiveness, but the writing can still be sharp.  Given that after this story, they go right into the "Second Coming" crossover and Kyle and Yost are leaving after that, I'm still not clear on where exactly this baby thing is going.

Employed by Elfquest? When? Pini is usually pretty good about those kind of things.
