    This has been a most confusing issue.

    That thing in the box was... what, Nova's brain? Huh?
    Cyclops... using a gun. I guess she blocked his powers completely. What's the deal with his line at the end? Where did she make a comment about him not having claws (and what does that have to do with anything)?[/spoiler:521bbbb532]

    Yeah, I guess that last part would be confusing if you didn't pay attention to the last few issues.

    [spoiler:eeaddecabf]When the series started, Kitty was concerned that he was really late. And then he showed up at the exact right moment to burn Ord. It makes perfect sense. [/spoiler:eeaddecabf]

    No.

    You would win SO HARD, it would cause a paradox of awesome, where you would retroactively become more awesome than you'd ever been before, at all points, ever.

    Forgive my ignorance here. So there's White Queen, who is Emma Frost. Is it two seperate people? Or is Emma the good the side, and Queen the bad side?

    This whole series has been a mindfuck. But I like it....I think.

    Well, the ONE thing we do know is that both the White Queen and Emma Frost have physical bodies. We can thank Scott and Kitty for that.

    It looks to me like [spoiler:3035adc43e] they are all somehow manifestations of Cassandra Nova... at least Shaw and the girl are. You can tell by their responses to Nova when she tells them how she is going to kill them after she is back in a physical body. However, the White Queen seems to be the one in charge of the whole affair, so it is unclear just what she is. [/spoiler:3035adc43e] In short... God bless you Joss Whedon.

    Actually, what happened was Nova began to revert Beast into a...beast, and he said something about how it probably wasn't the best idea to be in the same room with him while she did that. Then she asked if she could smell anyone in the room. Cue Wolverine's shadow.

    Dude, people have been making them and selling them on ebay and shit for a year at the very least. I guess maybe it sucks sorta that Hot Topic kids would be wearing them, though. Won't stop me from getting one.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.
