You'd think that a team that was specifically tasked with taking down an Xavier class telepath would have psychic blocking equipment built into their costumes

Didn't Tony build some and give them to all of the Avengers when they went to Utopia to "retrieve" Hope?

Its actually kinda hilarious that Rouge is one of the few X-men left that wouldn't just ultra-murder Red Skull at the first opportunity.

Well when Magneto tried she yelled at him and said he was just as bad as the Red Skull

Telepathy blocking tech should be ubiquitous in the MU. Hank Pym created dampeners for both telepathy and teleportation in AVX so they couldn't save the kids that were forcibly relocated to Avengers Academy. Magneto obviously has his helmet. Beast had something used against Phoenix (which she burned out). It feels like a lot of people have used things against Xavier, including Mystique, Hellfire, etc.

In fact, rather than bulky Sentinels, governments should just invest in putting mutant power dampeners everywhere. You could sell them at Best Buy and make billions from MU humans.

Whedon had them in his Astonishing run as well.

It's like having no cell phones in a horror movie at this point.

True enough. You could say that normal Level TP Shields against Xavier level power is about as useful as a flak jacket against the Hulk I guess.

Rogue knows Hank isn't a medical doctor, right? I recall some issue where Hank complains about constantly being pressed into medical service despite not actually knowing much about medicine.

Buuuut, I'm sure Hank will do fine. Not like this is brain surgery or anything. :p

But he's a superhero scientist. He does science. And science means medicine. Which means he can do anything.

He's not? I thought he just wasn't a surgeon, but was a medical doctor?

Technically he doesn't have an MD. Hank's doctorates are in Biophysics and Genetics.

After being all smug and shit lately, it's good to see the Red Skull shit himself from seeing a spanner in the works do its job. And Rogue's death glare is magnificent.

Not sure why she is trying to get the brain out instead of just killing the Skull immediately. It may be Xavier's brain, but it's got the Skull's mind and memories in it, it's pretty much damaged goods at this point.

Last time they just killed Red Skull (or tried), they unleashed Axis/Onslaught.

NO ONE wants that to happen again. So they have to defuse his brain instead of the more satisfying murder/execution

If I remember correctly, Charles' personality surfaced back during Axis, so I assume Rogue wants to try and turn the Skull into Chuck.

Xaviers brain apparently has massive ability to regenerate and reroute, so it'd be very forgiving of mistakes. You might just need to chop off the Skull bits (and since Xaviers brain is a graft it should be easy to spot) without disturbing the autonome functions. A ...hack job if you will.

I figured Deadpool had a plan to trick Red Skull into putting Rogue in direct contact with him so he could free her from Skull's influence, but I'll admit, I was expecting him to let her absorb his powers, and get his own insanity-driven immunity to mind control.

This was much simpler, so kudos to the writer.

I kinda prefer your idea. I dont see how Wade stays in one piece after being pounded by Wonder Man Level strength. He should be 'armless and in tiny pieces before then. Your idea would still let a bit touch her, wrong as that sounds.

The panels of Skull fleeing in panic is the best part of this.

Also was "Rogueneto" ever a thing.

Not gonna lie that Rogue moment was pretty badass. Though Marvel needs to just call it Uncanny X-Men at this point no need for this illusion of X-Mena and Avengers coexisting.

Seeing the Skull in a state of pants shitting terror is always great.

The "Red Skull has Xavier's brain" plot has gone on far too long. But with Secret Empire coming up, I'm not getting my hopes up that next issue will resolve it. Unless the Skull losing his telepathy is the impetus for Hydra!Cap to make his big move.
