Subj: X-Men Gold #9...

Just average...

X-Men Gold 009 (2017)

Poser cover. Bah. (And not even accurate given Piotr's condition! Boo!)

A down time issue - already. Huh. They seem to want to recapture the creme do la creme days of endearing soap opera romances that compliments the action. This all ended up being just average.

Something trivia to Wiki: ST.MITROPHAN.

Russian corpse & magicks prelude is very underwhelming.

OML is off panel - already. Probably too busy with his chronology confusion.

Intro: Congressman Zelman. Nobody special - yet.

Kurt should have listed Remy and Rogue as a couple! \:\)

First Kurt absolutely didn't want to date Rachel then suddenly in a most incomprehensible turn of a phrase he'sdares her to go on a date with him. Very poor dialogue scene outside the mansion.

Something trivia to Wiki: DEAR EVAN HANSEN.

RETURN OF AN OLD FRIEND! Stevie! Yay! Promotion to significance! Good for her!

Very topical sequence before a committee. We see it a lot on TV these days. Kitty weighs against in the anti-mutant debate and the possible deportation of mutants. Equated to vetting. She argues well. But, IT WAS VERY SAD THAT (the ended) Secret Empire was NOT EVEN MENTIONED in the arguments by either side. BAH. And it surely, should - unless of course this hints at lazy COSMIC RESET. As for the bill passing - as 'wrong' as that is, it should be a good thing storywise for the MU in the short term.

Another poor dialogue scene with Kurt and Rachel on their date. He's talking to her and then the Nuff Said panel of her apparently in some power upgrade daze but it was impossible for readers to make that out - if Kurt hadn't stated he sensed something. Also, she doesn't want to become like her mother?! But when Teen Jean comes to her and says the same, Rachel was, like, 'don't worry about it kid, you're imagining it'. Sheesh.

Piotr PROPOSES!!! ...*hic* to propose ONE day. He was SO unromantic at first... then OH! he's just talking out of his hat. Huh, no wonder Kitty was flustered. Especially since she kept saying she absolutely didn't want to date all issue. Clearly, the story is going for the parallels but all four of their love lives are not that interesting at this time since they haven't even entered the blossoming phase.

Enter: WHIPLASH! What's HE doing in an X-book?! Hmmph, since Ironverse doesn't care Xverse is cherry picking his arch enemies? Mister "Experience", here, pales to the newbie X-Cutioner vs Kitty. But then again he shouldn't have fared well to the fight result was okay.

One of the pitfalls of seeing upcoming solicits and reading the Letters Page spoiling the Return of Omega Red. He is not onmy favorite villains list either. Good to see that the resurrection process is not permanent; guess he'll live day to day like any vampire. This ending was telegraphed more than tempting.

How did YOU rate it?
