    Well, isn't that convenient. Not to mention the oft-repeated oft-annoying fail for this Cable's character concept. The influence of Gideon (or lack thereof) over the next 13 years (or 'til 54th century) seems like it would've been a big thing to notice and not a little thing.

Indeed.


    Quote:
    So, Cable can be the good guy and still use both barrels against an External since he can't kill them. Huh. Hard to imagine but whatever if that's the plot device readers are limited to then wasn't it a little irreprehensible that the way Cable planned (all along?) was to traumatize Blink by provoking her to DECAPITATE the enemy?

Eh. Cable's been the good guy using multiple barrels since 1991. ;\)


    Quote:
    Remind me what Selene does with Blink during X-Necroshia?

Not sure what you mean by "what she does with her." Selene pulls Blink from the extradimensional space she'd been since Phalanx Agenda. She then manipulated Blink by telling her Emma and the other X-Men purposely abandoned Blink in the extradimensional space.


    Quote:
    Were there not many introductory backissues of Armor trying to master the basics of her power compared to her high end group shield showing here?

There have been some. Nothing like this though.


    Quote:
    What was the point of that needlessly stretched out 2 page epilogue birth and eyeball close up?

Pretty sure that's Gideon reborn.

Which is completely stupid. Externals don't get reborn. It doesn't even make any scientific sense, which all mutants are supposed to do. They resurrect.


    Quote:
    Was anyone else unsatisfied with this whole arc? Although, it does address some External danglers, eh.


Frankly, I don't want a single panel of this story to be canon. Poor art. Poor character assortment. Horrible plot. And I can't see any reason whatsoever for it to be confusingly set "13 years ago." All of these characters would have been cooler together in the present.
