Omigosh! Not only a good book among so many bad books this week but a VERY entertaining book right from the opening title page with sewer comments and sexy costume...

X-Men - Worlds Apart 001

> wondering how this mini-series would affect the marriage of the King and Queen.

Same here.
> breathed a sigh of relief for the marriage, but wonder, if that takes the tension out of the story for me?

Same here.
> Hasn't Storm fought Farouk before? (I love the John Byrne artwork when Xavier and Farouk meet for the first time!) I'm pretty sure this is not the second time they've met, but i guess thats what having 'arch-nemesis' is all about.

Very interested atm.
> Will the Xenophobia/Fear of Outsiders overtake the culture and produce a Skrull/McCarthy effect?

Curious if SI will even be noted - it SHOULD be.
> but it's time for some good ole' Wakandan conspiracies and challenges to the throne. With the Queen by his side, our King will stand tall.

Very interested atm.









When story and art mesh it makes for a good story. When good story and good art mesh it makes for VERY good. After reading it, feel that reading just the thoughtful script or viewing just the beautiful art would have been seperately, both, an engaging time.

Shadow King continuity aside (and unknown atm), a respect to continuity only enhanced the reading of this story. And that's not just including her 'arch-nemesis' you point out. However, psychic security protocols aside, Farouk's threat and cliffhanger is VERY exciting here.

The beauty of Scott's interaction is that he comes across as the strong leader he's always been respected as, despite any SI-unresolved taint or changed/changing characteristics he's undergoing. His conversation seemed spot on with his classic take. Curious about the adherence to canon in regards to their interaction around the time Scott gave up his son/family in Xfactor. It is odd he thinks Logan on the Avengers is a help to mutantkind if he means the fugitive Avengers.

The "wink for me" solution was inspired. Ororo's resourcefulness and power of observation challenged Jessica Fletcher to name one very respected detective (other than Batman ;\-\) ). And her degree of control of the air, in the soldiers lungs, was more astonishing than unbelievable since there is precident with her lightning manipulation accuracy (which is VERY much a pet peeve - okay one nitpick). It will just make her poor showings all the worse now that she could do this to take down ONE villain at a time.

The detail of using the Dora Milaje was appreciated (the White Panther Guard was new to me). And 'T'Challa's' (that a lot of apostrphes) speaking was obviously suspect which made the villain reveal of fun selfcontained mystery for any reader/BPfan to solve. The overlay effect of the astral antagonist was just the icing on the VERY good cake.

While links last:

Dane too!Batgirl too!
Blaze too!Ororo too!

I went to my local comic shop and all the copies of this book were sold yesterday. I was really upset too. I like Nenzho a lot too.
