Four scans from this week's Exiles #2.

So the Nu-Exiles have arrived in an alternate Genosha, tasked with helping Wolverine, but instead find Wolverine's head on a pike and Magneto triumphant.  They take a look at the history of the island, and find that in this reality Professor X and Magneto made their relatioship work and formed the X-Men together along Xavier's lines, drawing in members of groups like the Brotherhood and the Hellfire Club.  In the "can't win for losing" category, this united mutant front just made people more suspicious of them, and Sentinels killed Professor X, leaving Magneto to carry on alone (and hook up with Moira, whose wedding is nigh).  After Xavier's assassination, war broke out, and regular heroes led by Captain America sided with the government against them.  Eventually, they gave mutantkind Genosha to live in, but have been trying to nuke it since.  They aren't sure why Wolverine was trying to get rid of Magneto.

The Exiles decide to infiltrate the royal palace by swapping in their Wanda and Lorna (who, since they grew up with dad in this reality, are bitchy rivals and hate each other) for the AU Wanda and Lorna:

Wanda and Jean being friends seems to be an idea that Parker is really fixed on, between this and First Class.

Team B heads off to take out Lorna.  They select Panther to make the stealthy KO, but he apparently quails at the last second at hitting such a pretty face, and hits on her instead.  Forge and Polaris intervene, and an extended battle between the two Lornas over hitting each other witH Forge's metal arm ensues...

Hilariously, they're given away by Polaris not wearing the black dress like gossipy Jean earlier read she would.

I like this version of Black Panther more than the regular version.

Oh, God, the "please stop accusing me of being unfaithful to my mother" just made me die. I have to start reading this.

A terrific issue it was! I'm of course now worried about which character will die. It's been two issues, we're due.

Wanda in her undergarments was a nice plus.

I love The Panther and his silly expressions. Interestingly the issue kinda suggests he might be a mutant without knowing it. And his parents was fun, here I just assumed he was a young T'Challa.

And yes, a tug of war wrestling match with Forge's arm is just plain hilarious.

Right this new run of Exiles goes on my list.

Curse you all.

I'm not a regular Marvel reader, but I do like to pride myself in knowing most of the characters pretty well. But, why are there two Wandas?

Holy fuck.

JEFF PARKER is writing EXILES?! Fucking SOLD. This might even be better than Winick's original creation run!

I will be picking this and the first issue up ASAP, and I'll be buying all the issues, and the inevitable trade -- something I'd only been doing for Secret Six up until now.

THIS gets my support. THIS is good old-fashioned comic-book fun.
