X-Men - Clan Destine 002 (of 2) (1996) ...1996!
Got my hands on this issue to bide my time 'til tomorrow's Wednesday Comic Day releases. First of all the art was: gorgeous. Even the coloring AND LETTERING was stand out. The story was a fun meeting of hero teams. And if not for Crimson Crusader and Pandora the extradimensional (throwaway) villain called SYNRAITH was about to become as similarly mind control threatening as Shadow King Amahl Farouk currently is. This part 2 of 2 did a good job of reaquainting me with ALL OF Clan Destine and the "CLICHED MISTAKEN IDENTITY HERO VERSUS HERO MIX-UP" was hardly cliche at all. It not only was refreshing fun, how it was presented, but also a very key point of the whole story. Sure the X-men are eternally recyclable but the danger and pain they suffered here was believable. Might even look for the first ish...
•Does Newton have a codename and is his armor as cutting edge tech comparible to the new Iron Patriot or "last year's" Iron Man to a respectible degree? His whole minor subplot with "Storm" was a SLAP happy episode.
•Is Adam Destine and Logan's past adventure against Chen Yu an UNTOLD story to date?
•It was great to actually see training drones using Image Inducer tech and the Danger Room wasn't ALL just Shi'ar Holo-hardlight technology again. It's less offputting than the wanton (and selfish) overuse of that easypeasy goto alien science. Were these DRONES ever shown in any back issues of X-books before?
•Why has CLAN DESINTE -basically- failed to stick around? The twins are charming and the family is superpowered diverse enough. It can't be a proprietory or creator etiquette thing, right?
