X-Men: Gold Annual 001
Move over, Lunella. You're going to be too late to the party, Valeria. There's a new, smarter, younger, brainiac chickadee in town! It's MAGGIE BRADDOCK!
X-Men: Gold Annual #1 still gives me some hope for the current run of X-Men comics. Its still flawed, and I by no means think this is some kind of turning point. However, it is quite enjoyable as a standalone story, and the team does a very good job of turning in an emotional and upbeat tale. I recommend this one. Check it out.
Fair comments there.
Added comments to my preview post [https://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=xmb-2018010715113171]:
-The plane ride was expositioned fine afterall. Funny probably-cameo of Deadpool. Is that Baby Googam or Baby Orrgo? And WTH is that Salt Machine in the aisle?
-Is "SPICY STRAWBERRY" a 'thing' in England?
-Changing into costume BEFORE a fight is accepted superhero trope, Kitty, but not DURING a fight! Just sayin'.
-"PRESQUE VU." Very cool term seeing for the first time.
-Huh, what did Rachel finally remember? Actually being the one that wiped Starhammer's mind?
-That Alternate Dimension Remote Control Generator made little sense, offered confusing solution, and was the worst (and most integral) part of the story. Whatever.
-The takeaway from this otherwise upbeat filler adventure: MAGGIE BRADDOCK! (And all the pro/con reaction the introduction will bring.)
