    Crrrrrrraaaaaaap...

    HEY

    I can see why the X-Men would decide that, seeing as the Utopia kids are at the same place as the Sentinel and it WAS originally designed to hunt, capture and kill-if-need-be mutants. Still, it's going to suck if they actually take him down.

    In this exciting issue, the X-Men kill a thing they hate and fear, even though it's done them no wrong.

    And tune in next month, where Cyclops discovers the concept of irony.

    Laura Hudson interviews Kelly Sue Deconnick about Captain Marvel

    She seems to share a lot of the same thoughts as me, which is good. And that's the last I'll say about that until July except BUY THIS BOOK DAMMIT!

    Is the Sentinel sentient or is its programming just damaged in a funny and exciting way?

    ugh, according to the interview with Parker and Shalvey on CBR, the real Thunderbolts will still be time traveling when Dark Avengers starts.

    It has to by now. Tsunami ended after about 6 months. That's not time for a lot of comics.

    They could just get the scraps of the thousands of other Sentinels they've destoryed and he can build himself another one.

    That cover needs to have the phoenix effect on it to give it some more context. It looks like Emma is going to be possessed during the event, maybe, but not knowing about AvX and you're just reading Avengers Academy, you look at that and you see Emma flying, and the energy blasts almost look like Gambit's thrown some cards around.

    I don't really understand how Emma is zapping the Sentinel

    she cannot do zaps other than brain zaps and those are not brain zaps

    Maybe she's throwing money at the problem? :rotate:

    He's still around? Awesome. I liked the unfortunately short-lived Sentinel series.
    Is the Sentinel sentient or is its programming just damaged in a funny and exciting way?

    The second thing, but he's learning.

    The kid's pretty bright and he was mucking with the programming a lot, turning off the 'kill all mutants' bits.

    I'd like to think they're cutting the ties with the Sentinel so Juston can use his talents to create all kinds of other awesome technology, rather than just killing it and getting rid of him altogether.

    It looks like Tony wails on him with repulsors to no effect and Magneto just turns his back on him and drops that

    I am really looking forward to that fight, the most out of all of the AvX match-ups so far really

    Iron Man's powers have gotten advanced enough that he should be able to rattle Magneto's cage a bit. Especially if Erik is expecting the same old pew pew pew Iron Man.

    Super kissin'

    one of Thor's greatest powers

    honestly Thor/Storm shouldn't even be a contest

    Thor has all of her powers and then his godly might and invulnerability on top of that

    I always feel weird about the Thor Victory Through Makeout sequence. It just doesn't sit right.

    It was Chris Claremont writing two things he loves in comics: mind control, and Storm being the object of affection for a God/King/Dracula

    he didn't mind control her

    he straight up says he took the air out of her lungs and knocked her out

    In contest of champions 2, the overarching story is that all the heroes are mind controlled to only care about fighting.
