> At least it was appropriate for a Kitty/Piotr story.
Well, that's fair to say.

> Russian monk. Only thing interesting I find about is that his corpse was in relatively good condition after 14 years.

> Remy & Rogue-- another bad example. Are there any good examples?
Heh! Was wondering why he even went their with his argument. \:\) Guess he wasn't around for Toad and Husk. ;\) Hmm... what other romantic X-couples lasted a notable length of time?...

> This year's Hamilton... maybe.
Checking... Over $240 bucks a pop?! Think of all the X-men comics one could get to entertain instead! Eep.

> But I guess it has been that long since Stevie has interacted with any of them (since 1994).
Just waiting to see Vera Cantor now. Guess she'll find out that Young Beast was really pining for Jean Grey behind her back all along. Hmmph.

> And yet no one in this committee meeting mentions the fact that superpowered flatscans make up the vast majority of threats faced. Not mutants. The vast majority of mutants barely register as a threat to insects.
Another missed opp.

> I didn't find anything "unromantic" about him. In fact, everything about him was romantic (to the point it irked me). They were just having a very mature conversation about the future, without all the adolescent floweriness.
Always imagined his proposal to Kitty would be one of the most memorable big, or even small, staged moments in the MU. Here he's dialoguing and suddenly, 'is he asking her to marry her?! ...well kinda..." Then found myself having to reread that bubble which was interruptive. So, not 'romantic' compared to romantic, for to my liking for his character.

> Ironverse isn't very Ironverse these days. I expect more non-X villains to come. There have been a lot already.
Always wished for that more of that during 80s & 90s. Hopefully the next time is more entertaining/interesting.

> Only nit: Piotr's use of "tovarishch," but this has been a pet peeve of mine for 40 years. Whiplash is not Piotr's comrade! It's bad enough when Piotr calls his true friends "comrades" (which would be an insult to a real Russian). This is just-- ARGH!-- even in jest.
Good point.
