Since we've had all those spirited discussions about Hope's criticism of Xavier's school; and then contrasted with Dani's criticism of both Logan and Scott's position after Schism; I thought it'd be interesting to post some other scans from Generation Hope; right at the start of Schism, which explores the History of mutants, as a counterpoint:

It starts with Idie being surprised by the idea that stopping Sentinels is the thing to do; since she views herself as a mutants as a monster. Laurie tries to explain that Sentinels aren't really for protecting humans from evil mutants.

I hadn't noticed at the time, but in retrospect with all this discussion - oh, Hope, honey. You really should be more interested in the past.

Laurie and Idie go to the museum, and they find Kenji already here (he came early to see the old Sentinel's design, cuz it's a classic. (Kenji cracks me up, have I mentioned that before? :))

While Laurie and Kenji continue their discussion, Idie wanders in the museum and finds Prodigy in front of a portrait of Stryker, saying: "I know that people like him have to be here. It's part of the story. Doesn't mean I like it much."

And he ends with "but you know the sickest thing of all? It could be worse."

And then the attack against the X-Men at the museum happens and Idie is alone to be able to stop it.

But Hope knew all about that, right?

True about the chest spikes, and don't forget she is a VERY powerful telekinetic, and can use that to boost her strength (Alan Davis in particular used to show her use the Phoenix wing effect as extensions of her arms to pick up heavy objects)

'Course, by the same token, with her TK level, using it to shove someone into her chest spikes is kind of gilding the lily.

(OTOH, when you're as strong as Alf, the same thing applies, I suppose, and it's just FUN to do it that way.)

... This whole post sounded rather less psycho in my head. >_>

Hah. Alf was the RP character I mentioned earlier who enjoyed using the BHOD. He was essentially an orcish version of Marv from Sin City, so his strength, like Rachel's TK, was a formidable weapon all on its own, but he just liked using the spikes.

(He was kind of fuzzy, the extent that wiry hair with barbed wire braided into it can be called 'fuzzy'.)
