The X-related scans of the week, both featuring interplay of the present and the future.

First up, Part 2 of "Second Coming" in Uncanny X-Men #523 by Matt Fraction and Terry Dodson.

Cable and Hope have returned to the present. Cable's all-business, but Hope is distracted (as can be seen in the preview, where she's mesmerized by a huge amount of beauty products in a convenience store) by the paradise of consumer goods that is our era, since she grew up travelling through a series of increasingly desolate futurescapes.

Godamnit, do you know how much that stuff costs?

The next day:

The villains show up, of course, but luckily the X-Men alpha team (Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Psylocke, Angel, Colossus, X-23) does as well.

Next up, four from Wolverine: Weapon X #12, by Jason Aaron and Ron Garney, as Wolverine and New Cap take on the Deathloks.

The Deathloks have been sent back in time to kill a bunch of future important people, Terminator-style, trying to eliminate the anonymous "General" commanding the resistance. New Cap is the prime suspect, so they go after him, catching him at a Russian restaurant in New York (he occasionally is overcome with the need to have some shchi. He dodges their guns, but is blown into a subway station.

Meanwhile, Wolverine has been contacted by Miranda, a waitress who keeps getting psychic flashes of future events (she's a badass commando in the future), and warns Logan about the Deathloks' mission.

Logan joins the fight in progress below. One the Deathloks grabs him:

Well that took an oddly philosophical turn.

This being one of her soldiers in the future. Flashforward. And then flashback:

And indeed they have, in the future. To be continued.

I preemptively apologize to any female readers for this comment.

At first, I thought Nathan had brought her some uh, maxipads, instead of the brush set.

I thought it was a bra myself.

But then I said "That'd be silly. Their are no bras in comics".

sadly i would honestly buy that comic just because i think she would be filled with unbridaled joy at the stuffed animal section and clothing department. "No more wolf skins!"

god, Marvel has really sold her on me...

I can picture the side issue they'll do where it's just Cable shopping at Target..Looking for this stuff. Pushing his little shopping cart around and trying to figure what to get for a girl in her late teens. And then giving up an hour into the trip and getting someone's help.

only Cable has a gun, there would have to be a fire fight in the store, and while he is tying up the bad guys he asks one of the female employees "Which one of these would you recomend?"

What did she use in the dystopic future anyways? Leaves?

well mutant powers coincide with Puberty (last i heard) sure there will but ocassional power bursts up until actual manifestation.

so since her powers have not fully manifested yet, we can assume that puberty has not occured yet, hence no need for leaves...

but the easier way would be saying "It has not happened yet because we have not written a story for it yet, but its coming :)

Sooner or later Cable needs to have "The Talk." Lucky for him, it's short since mutants can't get AIDS.

From: [personal profile] shadowpsykie
wait what?

the "Talk" would be funny. (she can still get pregnant, though mutants being a dying breed, i can see that being Omited "by accident,")

"Hey Cable, what's pregnancy?"

Can we get a scan of the talk between Nurse Annie and Husk about mutants not getting AIDS?

Chuck Austen wrote a line between Husk and his creepy Mary Sue a nurse about mutants not being able to get AIDS, most likely to put down any concerns over the fact that he'd have Angel spending the rest of his run on Uncanny bleeding on/into people due to his kewl new healing factor.

You have summed up much of Mr. Austen's run quite nicely.

i actually kinda liked that run. i didn't think that Annie was a mary sue (though to be honest her son had a bigger impact on thigs than she did) but i could have done without her.

When it gets to the point that the writer has put his way too perfect OC into a position where she gets the character the author most identifies with (Austen said in interviews that Havok was his favorite) while keeping her completely blameless in the break-up of a long-time canon couple, I call Sue. That she was named after his wife on top of that was just kind of 'ew'.

Even aside from that, I always found Austen's run kind of skeevy, what with everyone getting evil/abusive dads and the airsex.

Interesting fun fact about menses:

A woman who leads an extraordinarily active lifestyle, such as a college basketball player, may have very light periods or skip them entirely. Hope has been a professional refugee for her entire life, punctuated with periods of self-defense training from Cable, so it's possible that it never came up at all.

So... Hope never got her period because her vagina was scared that Hope might shoot it?

From: [identity profile] You're strange.

Hope's been living under conditions that are at least equal to a semi-professional athlete for her entire life. That's where I was going with that.

That job belongs to Deadpool, I mean he already bought her some diapers in Deadpool andCable #25

Joking aside they probably already went through the whole birds and the bees and girls being different than boys talk, I can't imagine how though.
