Subj: Uncanny X-Men #18: House (of X) cleaning continues...

Uncanny X-Men 018

Meanwhile the X-housecleaning continues...

Logan: Gone.

Marauders: 6 Dead. SIX DEAD.
Probably we're supposed to think they were toasted(dead) by Chamber. Maybe, maybe not. Easy enough to re-clone. Assuming they're the real 3rd?4th?5th? generation (and not some Emma sham).

Jono: Dead.
Maybe, maybe not since his body chemistry was wonky before flatlining. Probably for the best for him since he went against the no-kill code.

Sean: Dud.

Sinister: Incarcerated.
Something was fishy with his team-buster showing, as Cyke suspected too. So, let's see what prison Cap and the North Pole Avengers put him in.

Kwannon: Gone.
Y'call that security? Logan never brought her back, maybe?

Havok: Injured.
Let's see how this near insubstantial ghost mode pans out...

Shan: Gone.
Whiny excuse in some ways. At least it looks like she paid for a decent new HQ for the team as a parting gift.

Shogo: Gone.
Adopted by Shan.


Some sidebar statements...

0: Dumb bonus theme quote page in place of an exciting splash continues. Captain Obvious must have provided the drab quote. "I better put bread in the toaster if I want my toast for breakfast." Are we ASSUMING Cyke is saying it again?? (Not that it matters as intended.)

1: Who else thought it was cool choreographed scene how the X-men showed up to face the Marauders.

2: When Dani sent psi-arrow into villainess skull, if it was while Shan was possessing her, You'd think that'd have caused a blacklash.

3: Argh. we have to assume that Emma was just the right distance to easily eavesdrop in Cyke's mind.

4: Hope guns down Harpoon in retalliation of his killing Jono. How happy will Cyke be there?

5: Hey, they called him "Warlox" just like my blending last review. \:\) And he can't even provide his own escape. Hmmph.

6: The art had more color than detail this time. The, granted, grabber cover choice all but ruins the surprise ending. Overall, it was a decent read mostly because STUFF HAPPENS. (Wonder if Layla knows about it. ;\) )
