    Today's read...

    X-Men: Gold Annual 001

    Move over, Lunella. You're going to be too late to the party, Valeria. There's a new, smarter, younger, brainiac chickadee in town! It's MAGGIE BRADDOCK!



      X-Men: Gold Annual #1 still gives me some hope for the current run of X-Men comics. Its still flawed, and I by no means think this is some kind of turning point. However, it is quite enjoyable as a standalone story, and the team does a very good job of turning in an emotional and upbeat tale. I recommend this one. Check it out.

    Fair comments there.

    -The plane ride was expositioned fine afterall. Funny probably-cameo of Deadpool. Is that Baby Googam or Baby Orrgo? \:\) And WTH is that Salt Machine in the aisle?

Not a machine. The lady has a bag of salt and she's sprinkling it on a octopoid person.

Looks like Warlock behind the Googam, too. Maybe this is a special mutant flight.

    -Is "SPICY STRAWBERRY" a 'thing' in England?

I tried Googling this and came up with nothing. I mean, I see literal spicy strawberry sauces and stuff. I don't get what the t-shirt is supposed to be referencing.

    -"PRESQUE VU." Very cool term seeing for the first time.

Cousin of jamais and deja.

    -Huh, what did Rachel finally remember? Actually being the one that wiped Starhammer's mind?

Whoa whoa whoa whoa. Rachel has never met Starhammer. Not even once. That reference to Uncanny X-Men #387, never happened. It was JEAN in that issue... This is either a major screw up by the writer, or...

Oh $@#$!#@$, I guess the O5 being in the present is finally screwing stuff up. Or maybe it's the new post-Secret Wars reality. Things we thought happened didn't really happen.

I don't like any of the options.

    -The takeaway from this otherwise upbeat filler adventure: MAGGIE BRADDOCK! (And all the pro/con reaction the introduction will bring.)

Yes. Intelligence done well, imo. Precociously cute, not precociously annoying.

My other takeaway: HAHAHAH! Someone stuffed Lockheed. So that's where he's been. Take good care of him, Maggie.

It seems every week that goes by I like Guggenheim less and less.
