Is it wrong I want Lace to meet Devil Dinosaur?

Having Alex just chilling with them at the end there feels so wrong. I understand the argument that this run is largely build on fan service and that's fine, but the seeming jokey handling of what Alex did is just questionable.

I wouldn't say it's jokey how they're handling Alex.

They've repeatedly told him to leave, none of them trust him except maybe Molly, and they've made a couple of comments about how he should have stayed dead.

I mean how are they supposed to get rid of him? Threaten him with force? As terrible as he is, I don't know if they should have their pet dinosaur maul him. Especially not while they're currently dealing with some minor elder gods trying to force them to help end the world

Oh, it felt SUPER wrong to have Alex giving orders, grabbing Nico's hand to "help" with the spell, and standing by the team at the end. The issue was largely super uncomfortable to read. I have to believe it was done on purpose and was supposed to make us squirm I initially thought the grandma and best friend subplots were "random" but they thematically led up to and connect with Alex - he is a third "villain" in the same vein as the first two Is he "all" bad? Does he have logical (if wrong) reasons for what he did / is doing? Do the Runaways have some kind of bond - whether it is manipulated or genuine or both - with him? I think this 18 issues has been a pretty interesting exploration of abusive/ "bad for us" relationships...what does it mean to xur out a parent or friend, what crosses the line, do we choose interact with those people / might we be forced to, and if so, what do we do? Yadda yadda

Yes, I found it super uncomfortable as well, and the writing on Runaways so far has been good enough I have to assume that's deliberate. It's really strange to have him come back and behave not only like he thinks they'll be willing to take him back, but to take charge in a battle when the rest of them now have so much more experience at fights than he does. It's that arrogance and entitlement that really rubs me up the wrong way. If he's back, he's got a lot to learn from everyone else, and they need to set some hard boundaries with him.

Alex's power was always masterminding and strategics. So regardless of how much experience the others have I think he will always make a technically "better" leader than any of them...

Its hard to call knowing your own strengths arrogant...the uncomfy thing has gotta be that he's just not a good guy. His values didnt and dont align with the Runaways' and seeing someone who disn't have your best interests at heart (to the point where they would MURDER you) pull all the strings is deeply unsettling

Victor looking as angry as he can without being able to turn his head is wonderful.

Is this the same artist who drew "All-New Doop" or whatever that was called?
