I think it's accurate at a basic level--punk-ass kid who wants to dismantle Xavier's (now Logan's) vision. I think the difference is that in Morrison's run it was less genuine, more of a mix of teenaged anger and fashion statement. Now he utterly believes that he needs to destroy everything.

That sounds about right.

Actually "punk-ass kid" has given me a clue to my feelings - newQuentin seems like more of your basic 'punk' archetype (and I mean, I love these) whereas oldQuentin, like you say, was more of a fashion-punk using the aesthetics of youth anarchy to make his intellectual/telepathic (superiority complex/crushing self doubt-based) MAGNETO WAS RIGHT nonsense look cool and valid. He wore that stuff as an actual imposed uniform, not as self-expression precisely, but this quentin seems to fit the "what would this character design sound like" mould.

It's still enjoyable. I guess I'll pretend this is Ultimate Quentin.

And after flipping through that initial run of Morrison's, you see that Quentin, while perhaps not being fully into Xavier's vision as others, didn't get into that fashion-punk and gang antics until he found out he was adopted. When you consider that, you can say that a lot of it was him trying to create a new identity, one that in his mind would be badass and untouchable to hide the pain he's feeling.

When I think of it like that, I really start to see why Logan might want to help Quentin--he can probably relate to him in terms of lost identity, hiding their emotions, and having a checkered past.

That's true! I was grouping that in with the 'crippling self-doubt' thing.

The poor wee lamb. I think SOMEONE needs a savage land camping trip with uncle Logan.

Don't forget to pack your hairdye, quentin!

This upcoming arc of W&TXM does seem to involve Logan and Quentin at some sort of supercasino trying to game it to get more money for the school, so we might get something like that.

Plus we've seen Logan trying to do group activities with Quentin in his hockey game. :D

I've not seen that! I didn't want to risk ordering anything until I knew whether it would give good Quentin or not, so I've been scans-only so far.

Did it go well, this hockey? I am guessing it did not!

Just checked, and it's happening in #6 in February:

As for the hockey, it kinda did. It was part of Marvel's Holiday Magazine this year and the W&TXM story used to be available for free online, but it doesn't seem to be any more. :(

Uh-oh. Places like that are exactly where The Main Man would be lying in wait for the bastich that paid him to take a dive behind a bar counter and wound up making him the laughingstock of the galaxy.
