Subj: X-Men Gold #23: Five stories in one...

X-Men Gold 023

Four (not really) new storylines interlude with the main Prison Story. And NONE of them are all that teaseworthy or worth revisiting ATM...

Scythian: Yawn. Two pages should've been one.

X-men "B-Team": Pick a color, Bobby! (That was not meant as a straight line. Uhm, THAT not meant as a pun.) Chronological follow thru from Iceman cancellation. \(yes\) Unity Squad noted by Rogue. \(yes\) Even though readers can't tell (yet) if she's a member or ifff it jives with No Surrender Event or her own mini series. Armor, Ink, Magma, Magik. Got it. Don't give them this no-banter ragtag line-up it's own book though - won't get that. The latest and weakest attempt at an X-Women line up.

Pyro: Very suspicious motives. Crazy to have such a casual Second Chance Tradition. Yeah, yeah Bobby's gonna watch him like a hawk. Still he should've been vetted and TP'ed better.

The Shredded Man: Yawn. Ties to Unity Squad and Cable and Inhumans.

Then with the main Prison Story:
· Decent cover does it justice. (Kurt was drawn oddly.)
· Decent dialogue with Kitty & guards then Kitty & Callisto. (Last we heard of Morlocks was Betsy(possessed) and Creed in their tunnels, right?)
· Guess Shulkie aint that exceptional as lawyer. Guess Ro has to be convicted before they make her chop off that ponytail. Guess Storm no longer has an active Get Out of Jail Free Identicard. Guess Rogue has no Avengers pull.
· So, Rachel still has the hound marks with the dampeners? So, the dampeners are not powerful enough or she is that powerful that she can still have painful TP flashes?
· It's good that Kurt and Piotr can handle themselves even depowered. It would have been more interesting if their was some namedropping of recognizable cons.
· Unsatisfying Danger Room clash.
· Intro: CRAZY MAIZIE. Fun name. Worse than Callisto. At least she's something we get before lackluster set up ended.
