    That team vampire pic is offending my senses in so many ways I don't even know where to begin. Gha!

    I could give Jubes a pass for becoming a vampire, but all of them? What the hell? There's got to be something afoot here... I don't think that any one vampire would have the time or ability to turn the entire fucking X-team into bloodsuckers.

    The first reasonable conclusion I can think of is that there's some kind of magical thing going on here...like there was some sort of accident that somehow turns the entire group collectively into vampires?

    Or maybe Marvel is going to attempt their first daring thing in 50 years turn the entire X-family into vampires, only to have them all staked and killed in subsequent episodes.

    I swear Marvel storylines seem to be pulled from a bottomless, festering asshole lately. Maybe we need to just burn it to the ground and start fresh...

    ...wait...they already tried that with Decimation. Blargh.

    Ha, Gambit's neck-halo resembles the design on the stainglass window. Now he looks like Captain Cathedral.

    Do they need 3 psychic people on the team? Not that I'm complaining just questioning. Also, I know squat about Nate Grey and Psylocke, so I have no clue on how awesome they are.

    I'm guessing the Omega Machine drained X-Man of some of his abilities.

    Nate Grey, at least pre-Dark X-Men, is basically a male version of Phoenix with a dash of Sentry thrown in.

    Just finished reading the first two Kyle/Yost New X-men story arcs and damn they were pretty depressing. Writing and art were good but I understand why some were turned off due to all the death and stuff. I already have the fourth trade and that involves torture so I hope volumes three and five are a bit more upbeat.

    Ironically the arc where they go to Hell and the two parter immediately after are the most upbeat part of the series

    That's the last arc before Messiah Complex right? All I know about the third arc is the New Avengers show up.

    Nimrod
    Mercury Falling
    Quest for Magik
    Children of the X-Men

    And then onto Messiah Complex.

    Why God? Why? Why did Kurt have to die?

    I think I'm done with comics.

    That's the worst part. We all saw it coming from so far away, that I was sure they would pull a fast one.

    In the words of Wolverine,

    She better be worth it.


    And I don't mean a fucking Jean Gray resurrection.

    It's not even that, it's the way he/she died that is completely stupid
    Kurt teleports himself in front of Rogue/Hope and Bastion so that Bastions extended arm goes right into his heart. What the fuck is that supposed to do? Did he think he was colossus or something?

    So, so stupid.

    Good jumping off point for the X-line. I guess I still have the 23+ years of reading stories about that character, following him/her around from title to title, but it seems like a huge waste to me.

    back?

    My guess is 2 years.

    It better be in the last chapter of this arc or it better be in hellbound, but we won't see him/her there, because he/she was an angel.

    A
    blue pointy eared angel.

    Xmen will not be the same without
    elf.

    Saw the scans on scans_daily
    Does he leave a body behind or disappear to nowhere?

    Also, did he kill Bastion by teleporting a chunk of him off?

    Honestly, I think that should be done for all future resurrections.

    I always had this idea how to differentiate the teleporters.


    Like, Kurt, even though he's the "worst", could teleport the most mass.

    Pixie is the "best" at pretty much everything, but she cheats because she's a mutant and magic for some reason, but not as good as Kurt teleporting mass.

    And Silver Samurai is the fastest.

    Also for one-handed silver samurai to join the X-Force.

    This would be the best thing.

    Well, Kurt fights using his teleport better then anyone else too.

    Also in general he swashbuckles better then anyone else.

    Basically, Marvel chose Pixie over Nightcrawler.

    So for all those people who picked up the Pixie books, I blame you!
