Whatever happened to Anole's extra-large arm? It's like the artist didn't get the memo, either here or in X-Men Gold, that he's supposed to have the one bigger, spikier, arm.

I asked about this in the X-Men Gold, actually. Apparently he got burned alive in Extraordinary X-Men, and regenerated into having no spiky arms.

Which is terrible, because that asymmetry was a great character design element.

I think Prime was published before Blue and Gold, though.

Still, 'porting into the middle of Central Park? Not a very good idea. You'd think one of the older X-Men would have tried talking Kitty out of that. Besides, the gang was based off San Francisco on an island for a while and that didn't help so I don't see how co-opting a public park is going to be any better. Instead of heroes they look like arrogant pricks.

By now the older X-Men have probably learned they can't talk Kitty out of anything.

Yeah, that's just starting the school off in the kind of battle the X-Men are worst at: a legal battle. "So, uh, yeah, we just kind of took over part of this public park. Eminent domain, I guess? Or, oh! Divine providence, yeah. We needed some space in Manhattan, and hey, we found it! Anyway, someone's going to have to connect our utilities and... what? Property tax? Noooo, we don't own the park, it's public land. Duh."

Matt Murdock can already feel a headache brewing, and he doesn't even know why.

Hey if the Inhumans are allowed to park Attilan on the Hudson River and refuse to pay taxes why can't the X-men move their school?

The Inhumans can make the argument of being a sovereign state that happens to be in a flying city. The X-Men are, at best, US citizens with a habit of vigilanteeism mixed in with their social and political activism, and at worst a terrorist cell with global ambitions. Also, boats can still go under Attillan if they want to (I think?), but the X-Men just stole public land where people walk. The law is going to come at those two groups very differently.

I think the NY Parks Dept. has insurance for this, since the last time they hosted a few thousand Asgardian warriors in the middle of the park.

Anyway, it's gotta be better than having Apocalypse's Ship towering over the East River.

That is a fair point. Although didn't the team have Apocalypse's ship in the era when they were pretending to be a government-sanctioned mutant-hunting force? They probably got an official OK for it at the time, and again, people could still use the river for river stuff.

No, they only got Ship after that had all been done away with and X-Factor were media darlings and openly operating mutant superheroes in New York.

Ah, thank you for the correction. I'm sorry to say I don't know the details of that era quite as well as I could.

So they did, thanks for bringing it up. Don't worry, Kitty, those numbers will go down fast. You've seen what mansions full of X-Men do to local property values.

Based on the cover, it looks more like Kitty is the new Wolverine than Laura! She’s almost neanderthal.

Oh Piotr, never stop being that creepy stalker dude (Seriously? He took her room so he could what? Be around her scent? SHE BROKE UP WITH YOU YOU PILLOCK... MORE THAN ONCE... AND MOVED ON... ALSO more than once), if only because it makes it more likely Kitty won't end up with you EVER AGAIN.

Now, now. It's not Piotr's fault he's written as a terrifyingly emotionally stunted individual.

It goes the other way, too. Their relationship started when she was barely a teenager, and he was an innocent farmboy. Now she's leading the X-Men and avoiding her ex-fiance, and he's a former Acolyte who's died and been a Juggernaut, a Phoenix, and a Horseman of Apocalypse. They've clearly changed a lot since then. But that doesn't matter.

Piotr is frankly acting like the male lead in a Stephenie Meyers novel. But that doesn't matter.

What matters is that Kitty is going to end up back with him eventually. Sooner or later, they're going to end up under the control of writer who has Kitty/Piotr as their One True Pairing, and then it's True Wuv all over again.

At least it isn't Pete Wisdom, I guess.

No, wait, Kitty back with Pete Wisdom would be better. And I like the Rasputins.

Pete Wisdom and Kitty work when one remembers that Warren Ellis (as sole writer of Kitty at the time) wrote her as a young woman in her very late teens or early 20's. It was Claremont de-aging her when he took over writing her some years later that made it creepy in the rearview mirror.

I haven't been keeping up with my beloved X-Men lately since there's been quite a bit of Inhuman related... unpleasantness... but this seems like a fairly interesting, not horribly idiotic, take. But what really says something about me is how my biggest takeaway from these scans was the scene where Ilyana and Kitty and inches apart in an embrace and I just keep thinking "...and now kith <3"

Shippertrash. That is what I am.
