Since we've had all those spirited discussions about Hope's criticism of Xavier's school; and then contrasted with Dani's criticism of both Logan and Scott's position after Schism; I thought it'd be interesting to post some other scans from Generation Hope; right at the start of Schism, which explores the History of mutants, as a counterpoint:

It starts with Idie being surprised by the idea that stopping Sentinels is the thing to do; since she views herself as a mutants as a monster. Laurie tries to explain that Sentinels aren't really for protecting humans from evil mutants.

While I still find that whole caveman metaphor thingy to be one of the most painfully stupid thing I've ever seen - that was a nice issue finally seeing everyone try to decide what to chose.

My favorite comics friendship is among Emma Frost's second Hellions: specifically Cessily Kincaid (Mercury) and Julian Keller (Hellion). Neither of them are really in the spotlight right now, so we don't really get moments between them anymore, but I'm a big fan of their relationship back in the day.

The thing about these two is that they have this great brother-sister vibe. They watch out for each other, they joke, they fight, they lean on each other when their friends are dying (listen, it's tough to be an X-Kid, what can I say), etc., and there's no romantic undertone. When Hellion hangs out with Mercurt, he's actually a nice guy. It halfway makes me want to ship the two of them.

The truth is that the connection between all of the Hellions (Mercury, Hellion, Tag, Rockslide, Dust and Wither--and X-23, even though she was never officially a Hellion) have with each other is something special. (Which is funny because it seemed like at the beginning of New X-Men that the guys we were supposed to identify with were the New Mutants, and the Hellions were supposed to be antagonists.)

Anyway, here are a few moments that showcase their friendship:

When we last left off, Sooraya and Cessily were fighting Belasco like the fierce ladies they are.  Illyana was excising Megan's soul, and Noriko, Julian, and O*N*E are trying to figure out a way to save everyone from Limbo.  (Also, mods, I have more than seven pages from each of two issues here, but they each had thirty pages of content including Endangered Species, where Beast is running around doing SCIENCE! to save the mutant population.  I can try to cut it back down if that does not count.)

They find Amanda Sefton, who was in a coma and on the verge of death.  Noriko shocks her back.  Amanda says that "Belasco is coming for the children," and that they need to find Nightcrawler, who has the Soulsword.  But he's in SPACE.  "They're dead, then.  The X-Men...the students...they're all dead."

"Shut up and get dressed.  You're taking us to Limbo."

Now. )

[personal profile] queenanthai asked to see the original Quest for Magik storyline.  These scans are massive, so watch out for that.  They will mess with your screen.  The art in the prelude (first seven scans here) are crazy pretty, and I like that the students look and feel like teenage youth throughout this arc.  (Some artists end up making them look like young adults or children.)

Some background: This arc comes after one where Cessily (Mercury) was kidnapped so that parts of her may be cut away to provide a skin for Predator X.  Laura (X-23) and Julian (Hellion) went off on their own to save Cessily.  Meanwhile, Noriko (Surge) was squad leader.

'No, thank you. I'm sorry for your loss, Megan.' 'WHAT?!' )
