MOTW 1/23/13: Yeah, great. Sounds fascinating.
, the new recruits are the exact opposite of Saved by the Bell: the New Class. Plus more foreshadowing:
Uncanny X-Force #1
, his name is Puck and he likes to fu......rnish information to Betsy and Storm. Plus Fantomex goes and makes everything weirder than it should be:
BUT ITS FANTOMEX.
Of course he's in love with himself.
And the Fantomex thing is completely in-character.

*not really Spider-Man
**not really dead
Uncanny Avengers #3 Havok takes the lead of his team.
Ultimate Comics The Ultimates #20 Obama sends a whole Navy team to take out a guy, President Cap sends Hawkeye (though maybe he should have sent a team )
"Ride or Die" confirmed Dominic Toretto, as they took off to find the Dragon Balls in hopes of reviving their friend Sonic
so that makes a lot of sense
But it's shocking!
WTF at the end of YA. good lord.
So yeah, New Universe all up in here. Also if you look closely, the energy coming into his forehead is the Nightmask brand from New Universe.
Also, the "One is Death" thing at the end... New Avengers reference perhaps?
I think it might be more "the circle continues" type thing
it wasn't the kid apocalypse storyline, that was the very first arc
He was killed by the skinless man at the very start of Final Execution
(and the he got better obviously)
It took them a couple issues to hit the same heights, but Fraction and Allred are doing something here that could be just as amazing as Fraction and Aja's work on Hawkeye, if it keeps up the quality from this week.
First, we have the reveal of what actually supposedly killed Reed, Ben, and Sue and chased Johnny through time and space.
Then, in the best sequence of the book, when Scott goes to convince Darla to come back to the team, we get breathtakingly beautiful art, a wonderful emotional moment, and a mission statement for the book within the span of a few pages.

Bucky, Cap, Logan, and Clint do eventually manage to rescue Natasha, and even restore her memories to her. With one exception.
Also, on a side note, Butch Guice did the best work of his life on this title. This was one gorgeous book. I hope the new guy dosen't fuck it up too badly.
romance is in the air at the Jean Grey school, as the issue ends with not 1, not 2, but 3 kisses before literally jumping right into the big storyline Jason Aaron promised would begin in issue 25.
THIS IS NOT COOL
but that Winter Soldier thing feels like it's just a few steps away from fridging
Loving this jerk.

no one has come out and said that yes that is happening but yes it is totally happening
what, how is that even the same thing at all
WatXM is the first time he's been interesting. He was boring as fuck in New X-Men.
Although if you like Quire, the Alpha+Omega miniseries that Brian Wood did last year is pretty great. It's non-essential but it's a fun story about Wolverine and Armor getting trapped inside Quentin's mind.
I mean, on a scale of 1 to Alex DeWitt, it's like a negative five, but still
I wouldn't say it's fridging at all. Bad things can happen to female characters without being close to that, and this was handled extremely well. Yes, it's primarily used to hurt Bucky, but it IS his book and the amount their relationship mattered outside of things written by Brubaker was damn near nonexistent...so it's not like it'll harm Natasha's future characterization. But the whole arc felt like it build towards this kind of hollow victory very well, and it's kind of nice to have some real consequences to actions rather than everything being a happy ending, especially for this book.

you have to admit "villain hurts people around hero in order to hurt hero" is a pretty tired trope
