I can understand Bendis not wanting to rush a Rachel & Jean reunion, but Rachel's absence here is getting pretty unbelievable. (Like, we should at least see her talking to Kitty about Jean--and have we seen her reaction to the baby X-Men at all?) Jean really needs Rachel's help.

It's pretty amazing that Jean and Rachel haven't just bumped into each other considering that there's, what, fifty, sixty people there? I feel like the school hasn't really grown that much despite the rash of new mutants. It really seems like someone is keeping them from meeting. (Probably not, though.)

I don't know, I can understand why they might keep the two separate at first. It's one thing to know that a lot of crazy shit happens in your future, but to actually see someone like that? Someone who is your daughter, yet older, from an alternate timeline? That would be a bit traumatic.

The meeting should happen soon, but it would have been weirder if it was sooner, IMO.

Normally I'd agree, but given the sensitivity with which they handled the Warren situation, I'd imagine this would be an easier scenario to handle. ("Hey, meet yourself from the future! 'course, he's not really you, he's a completely different person who lives in your body! All of your memories, thoughts, hopes, and dreams are gone! It's like you're dead, but there's someone else piloting your corpse around!")

Plus, Rachel could probably help the kids with whole "time displaced" feeling. She's been there. A lot.

Because it is Bendis, he tends to over look or even ignore those kinds of things. Not only does he badly characterize characters. He tends to overlook and ignore certain scenes that should happen because he has to use his favorite characters and he has to have some sort team in-fighting/team vs team.
