Subj: X-Factor #4: The good...
Posted: Fri Mar 14, 2014 at 08:19:59 am CDT (Viewed 164 times)

First take the bad news, then the good news, right? X-Force yesterday and today it must be...

All-New X-Factor 004

• As long as they keep including that cover quote from inside, will just continue to praise it!

• Very GOOD grabber cover!

• Scrooge vs Dracula sounds fun and apropo but a better guess is zombies against Sophy Wackles, Lucretia Tox, John Podsnap, Pumblechook, Mr. Sowerberry, Uriah Heep, Smike, Caddy Jellyby, or Paul Sweedlepipe?

• Danger vs Gambit - good action (although the momentarily sparing Gambit from a proposed killing spree was a bit comicbook cliche - not complaining about it as Danger may be trying to override the override or whatever Nil did).

• Remind me, on that last panel of the Gambit cancelled series does that mean Jean Luc gave up leadership to Remy willingly?

• Fine. More comicbook cliche with everyone surviving that sized explosion. Fine. But looking at the bare chests of Jean Luc and Danger with the seeming slippage of the art quality... wincing just a bit.

• Props to Gambit. He's bounces right back for the rematch. But then, strike against, where is Pol who was right there with him last ish? Maybe Pietro saved her too? He should be QUICKLY saving everyone.

• Danger vs Nil - good tension (waitaminnit, where'd all those copies of her come from?).

• SpOck did it with his avatar storming 'Norman' in SSM. Now, Danger is doing it (in style) with Sentinels. This Hard Light Generator tech is becoming to commonplace and ill-defined for my liking. But there's precident so it's fair to use with Shi'ar A.I. advanced as Danger.

• Good rope bridge scene.

• Oh look there she is! Pol's segue in a little less than satisfying. Her odd word observation was clever observation. As was noting Danger's obvious weakness.

• Remy vs Lorna - good to get differing opinons.

• Well that was easy. Makes for a good scene. Maybe that make was a hologram or one of those copies or...

• The Iron Giant reassembly routine is a bit comicbook tired. Does that mean her love for Jeffries will never die too? \:\)

• Danger vs Gambit Round 3 - good (the scratchy art, not as much).

• Props to Polaris. She's as relentless with a rematch. Lots of cliche comicbook fighting - done well here. Whoa, Magneto! Good one, Danger. Liked that the Serval ship wasn't forgotten too.

• Hmmm... pausing with the kill again. When is Danger going to wake up and... aha! The ole Disney kiss routine. Nice one.

• "SHUT UP." "OH, RIGHT." \:D

• Best. Recruitment. Ever. Well, maybe not best but very good and done-in-one and it's seems like a fine functional fit for Danger. So, alls good after 3 now.
