    It was nice to see Pickles interact with someone other than the O5. However, the Bullpen disagreeable handling of this character and his freaky cherub brethren is becoming a new pet peeve. Here, IIRC, is the first time we see him capable of verbalizing various noises. ROK, YEEEH, ERRRM. And he was thinking in pictograph when Psy read his mind so he is intelligent - especially if he is a heavenly sentient one would think. Plus, if any X-telepath can minddump in anyone how to fly a Blackbird why can't communication with the blue boys be less challenging? If Psy can read his mind, it's embarrassing she was unaware of Pickles refueling requirements too.

It's not the first time the Bamfs have spoken. While they usually only said "Bamf," back in Wolverine & the X-Men they were even capable of English. In one issue, one exclaimed, "Bamfs no need no education!"

    Hmm... Psy decapitated the one about to bite Jeen as they were 'ported to Madripoor but then suddenly another one was holding her again? More details range/selectiveness/distance details should be given for Pickles' power 'ports.

Seemingly infinite range. Certainly global.

    It was important that Betsy state "UNDEAD IS DEAD". That justifies them going full kill mode on the Hand. But are we to assume the moloid creatures are undead vampires just because they look and are labelled the part? Not sure about how much this kill mode attitude is the best mentoring for Jeen. Is she going to get in a physical fight with Phoenix? Doubtful. Will 'porting into a club to intentionally beat up on a bunch of rowdy dancers be the best lesson? Doubtful. Bloodthirsty knives, clubs, sais, chains and claws are who Jeen should train to be? Doubtful.


    Hmm... has Betsy ever interacted or commented on the Jubirella? Should she?

Undead = Dead doesn't mean she should destroy any of them. It just does absolve any guilt. If zombies were chill the apocalypse would be sweet. I would imagine Jubes is still her friend so not a threat.

Not all undead are created equal. Zombies (especially Hand zombies) tend to have minimal sentience. They're like animal-minded automatons.

    "THAT VOICE." Do you think it's Phoenix all along? Or maybe Xavier from his Faruk prison? Or someone else. So, Psylocke, one of the top telepaths, heard it but can't probe for more info or suggest how to track the voice? It sounds like another contrived stepping stone of this One-Girl Anti-Phoenix Quest direction. Dropping this book is a definite possibility.

I suspect the voice is Jean. Or Jeanix. There no reason to think Xavier will be turning up in this series.
