Quote:X-Men: Gold Annual 001
Quote: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.
Quote:-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.
Quote:-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.
Quote:-"PRESQUE VU." Very cool term seeing for the first time.
Cousin of jamais and deja.
Quote:-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.
Quote:-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.
