A preview from Newsarama for Wolverine and the X-Men #4

Not liking the teenage look of Bobby, he's in his thirties or so isn't he (Is that Husk in the bandages, and have they explained why she's wearing them if it is?). And that's a very Whedon-like line for Kitty.

Knowing how much I like Kurt though, the thought of an army of horny mini-Kurts is strangely not that disturbing... ;)

Or the fact that in school of children, teachers, buildings, and even the ground are extraordinary ant have abilities beyond normal understanding, he is a nobody again.

Has the book address the little fact that last time the school was open: 2 massacres occur: One by a teacher that pretty much reenacted the holocaust and another by a student during Open House? Or how more than half the students of the last school have died or been brutally traumatize?

I think that's what's been bugging about this book: last time they did this: they introduce fun new younger characters, and a few years later, KILLED almost all of them off! ANd I am not sure if this guys DO live for future generations would make me happy or tick that these guys lived but the other didn't, just the death of young students being the X-Men's first simple mistake because they weren't experienced at it..

I just thought it was funny that even the faculty wouldn't let her finish talking.
Seriously though, she has got to be the least qualified person on staff.. and that includes Doop.

If they raided Logan's videos as mentioned, that'd be 'an army of horny kung-fu mini-Kurts. :D

Well, he's an Omega-level telepath, now with a potential kung-fu-bamf army.

...Kitty spent her morning throwing up?

Is there a plot point I missed somewhere along the line, or am I just making an unfortunate assumption based on incomplete information?

I was agreeing, actually. ;)

And to correct my own correction, based on the whiskey they stole, 'an army of drunken horny kung-fu mini-Kurts.' XD

She's pregnant on the cover a few issues from now, so I imagine it's foreshadowing.

Yeah, I was discussing it with someone else on IRC and remembered that solicit that implied the Brood was involved...

I see the "hey, let's make Julian a complete douchebag and to hell if it's actually in a way that's in-character" meme is still running strong at the Marvel offices.

Other than that, it's nice to see that the severe lack of forward planning wrt finances is consistent across X-Teams. At least they have an accountant to (hopefully!) help with that.

A teenage boy, any teenage boy, who loses both his hands and doesn't become a douchebag while dealing with hissubsequent anger issues would be completely unbelievable.

That's as unbelievable as a woman having her memory of her dead children completely erased, finding out about it by accident years later, and not blowing a gasket over the people involved.

Kitty's line reminds me of the start of the latest Brood story where she deliberately misinterprets Hank saying "Brood" as "food" and pulls out a restaurant guide.

Note my complaints about him being an out-of-character douchebag. Julian has always been in the role of team pill, at least as far as the older mutants are concerned. He's a headstrong kid convinced that he knows better than any of the senior X-Men, will absolutely act contrary to their orders, and is inclined to keep any respect he has for his teachers well hidden from them. He's also, however, had very high standards for himself, been willing to fight and die for his friends without question, and has generally been driven to be the be at the top of any heap he finds himself on.

What we've had lately, however, is a series of writers using the kid as punching bag, especially since he lost his hands: Fraction treating the loss with nearly total irreverence, Mike Carey turning him into a killer and hinting that he's destined to become a monster, Marjorie Liu treating him as a creepy stalker (while white knighting fuck-mothering Gambit of all people, which is just sourly hilarious), Jason Aaron writing him as a bully and a generic brat, and pretty much everyone IC telling him to suck it up and stop sulking over a little thing like becoming a double amputee. And I imagine it's only going to get worse now that Quire's back as the powerful, snotty kid who thinks he's destined to lead the X-Men. It's gone past the point where I'm willing to excuse it as writers (badly) trying to show him in a period of personality adjustment to where it's starting to stink a bit of ableism.

I agree he badly needs therapy*, but Carey did write him as starting to come out of his funk in the latest X-Men Legacy where he pulls off a remarkable feat to save Ariel.

*Whether he's ready to admit he needs therapy is another matter.

Bobby was always quite a bit younger than the other X-men, not sure by how much, but it was noticeable.
