Sorry, me again one too many posts in a row?

X-Men Gold 022

Again, it was a bearable issue. With an interesting (first time?) development with the team going to jail. PBP...

00 Another DUMB cover by Marvel. Nothing to do with the story. Any chance it's (misplaced) forshadowing of Rachel going supervillain 'cuz now that Jean is back she's redundant?


01-02 Lydia Nance now has a real layer of characterization. Poor kid has it much worse than Valerie Vector at that age (as read in Avengers). Still, did it warrant maybe just 1 page not 2?

03-05 Ahhh. They were playing possum. They've regained some battle showing respect as they go for Round Two. Plus, an impressive showing that Prestige could mask the psychic conference call. 'Course TP in the X-MU continues as pet peeve since Mez turns around and pawns her telepathically. Still, did it warrant maybe just 1 page not 3?

06 Avalanche is new, too. Did we know this? He should have copied Daisy Johnson's codename instead. ;\)

07 Pyro gets a layer of personality, too.

08 THIRD (streched out) page of Gold Team embarrassing itself in rematch.

09-12 Oh, c'mon X-men! Four more pages of them falling for one of the oldest tricks in the book of telepaths. So much for that regained respect.

13 Okay, that's a neat and nasty twist. Makes me want to diss their battle showing and Prestige's resourcefulness even more considering maybe the cops should be mortally wounded.

14-16 Okay, that's a refreshing trip. Usually the street level superhero scurries off. Kitty is really giving this transparent mutant interaction thing a go.

16-17 Nance, Mez, Py and Av all get personality moments. Where's the Ro, Kurt, and Piotr moments this ish??

18-19 Cool. Jennifer appearance! Both continuity and hair color ambigous as it were. Wow, could this team ever use Longshot. Basically 2 pages for Jen to surprise Kitty that she's S.O.O.L., sadly out of luck, with no bail. Hmm... will next ish show Rachel's hound scars while she wears the NYPD's dampener collars?

20 Coo1. Annihilus appearance! Ugh. Kologoth return alread! The pacing was fine but did you find the scenes to feel stretched out for page count?

Letter Page - Had me wondering: What happened with Ink's big push last arc? Have we seen (enough) entertaining drama of Colossus considering Kitty's catastrophic engagement to Peter QUill. Isn't OML and Rachel not having an 'conversation' comparing 'futures' more an easy out than a missed opp? ;\)

Are these new versions of Pyro and Avalanche? The original Pyro is still dead, isn't he? He can stay dead because he went out as a hero, Avalanche I thought that there was enough ambiguity in his death (Which was stupid.) to bring him back without any problem. Kolgoth is new, I take it?
