X-MEN UNLIMITED #11: Uncles and nieces

With XDoop's post of Rachel Summers revealing her past as a mutant hound in her alternate timeline home, here's a brief look at one of Rachle's more painful memories from that timeline. X-MEN UNLIMITED (vol 2) #11 had Rachel Summers talking with her uncle, Alex "Havok" Summers about Cyclops' romance with Emma Frost.

Alex and Rachel were never on the same team at the same time. The post-Morrison era is the only time I can think of when they were both in the mansion on separate teams.

D'oh! She hunted him down so the Sentinels could kill him.

An interesting aspect about the very end of this story is that it appears Alex doesn't like Scott's romance with Emma any more than Rachel does. Alex is just a lot better at keeping his opinions to himself. Perhaps this story ties into why Alex and Rachel are fighting to depose Vulcan in "War of Kings." As of now, Alex is the only family Rachel can really connect to.

I liked it too. Didn't at first, but it's much better than Scott's necrophilia fetish.

Dude loves a DEAD WOMAN! Come on!
