Quote:> What's odd is that they've decided to use the same type of chat bubbles for Shadow King and Xavier.
Yeah. Was thinking maybe the writer is actually trying to go with some representative consistency of what psi-talk from this astral plane looks like. Assuming that this IS the real Xavier rather than the ugly darker possibility.
Well, it's only Shadow King's and Xavier's psi-talk. Maybe the "dead" people are getting special psi-talk. Everybody else on the Astral Plane has normal chat bubbles.
Quote:> We've already known she was around in the 1920s. We don't really know precisely when she was born, but it's at least in the 19th century. She met Destiny circa the turn of the 19th/20th centuries. She met Logan in 1921.
Oh. How much younger (most likely) is Kurt than her?
About 100 years younger, give or take a few decades. Kurt was 21 in X-Men Annual #4.
Quote:> I don't find it implausible. It's sort of the same as when he used his power to stop that train way back when.
So, if they wanted to have, say, Sebastian Shaw survive that high a fall then would him absorbing all that freefall kinetic energy and then channeling it into a force shield or reflection at impact be plausible? Do you recall if he has been punched by Colossus or anyone so hard that his mutant power saved him similarly but he lost consciousness?
In the classic Hellfire Club story, Shaw took a kick from Colossus that would have smashed a tank and proceeded to ragdoll Piotr around the room.
Another time when he fought Rogue, she flew at him and he just stood there, unphased, then came her beatdown.
Yet another time, against Cannonball, he was unphased and backhanded Sam away.
More recently, he's even been able to convert absorbed energy into massive super jumps.
