    Gideon fascinates me. But yes, Emerick Man, you called it - the whole Externals plot line is a Highlander rehash. It's all exactly the same. Gideon is the Kurgan. Only there's no Connor/Duncan MacLeod. Or maybe Selene is the Connor/Duncan MacLeod character, without the nobility.

Cannonball was supposed to be the Connor/Duncan. There was also no contest or grand prize as there was in Highlander. There was no "there can be only one." It was just a bunch of immortal guys doing nothing really.

    Wow is Eve built like a sex-bot or what?

Well, she is a sexy human (smoking redhead) given a robot body. Frankly, my robot body will be fabulous!

    Incidentally, putting the X-Mansion in Central Park is one of the stupidest things I ever heard of, which is one of the reasons I got turned off by X-Men: Gold.

Egads, it's colossally stupid. I get the whole wanting to be amongst the people thing, but not the freaking park. There are just too many impractical issues with that.

    Do we know why Selene didn't kill all the Externals when apparently she could have?

Plot.

    Regarding time paradoxes - I agree, Emerick Man. Longshot and Shatterstar - and maybe Doop? - don't matter in this context, but Armor and Laura are surely doing and experiencing things they hadn't in the previous version of the time line.

In the grand scheme, none of this really matters unless one of them dies. I really doubt any of these characters will ever even mention this happening.

Frankly, for such an idea, Marin, California (Brubaker/Fraction era HQ until Utopia) was the perfect spot.

    I'm being driven by curiosity rather than passion or excitement, but I'm still buying this comic. Oh, and I love the art. Absolutely love it. It's so beautifully 90s while nevertheless being clear and easy to follow, which wasn't always true of a lot of the 90s art.

Maybe it's an art thing. When it comes to art, "beautifully 90s" is like an oxymoron. Visually, I'm barely standing any of this.
