Quote:Generation Hope #6:
Quote:The Lights [because its such a catchy name] fly the Blackbird [because no 'porter would get there faster] to another country with X-men liason [because its such a proven new contact protocol] to recruit a new mutant holed up in a building and threatening the public. Hmmm, where have we seen that before - oh right, just last arc.
Quote:Hello Kitty [because Marvel wants Rogue somewhere else for some reason other than Scott explains his nepetistic choice in-story].
Quote:Does ESLO mean something? [because if not a missed oppurtunity from using a known MU manufacturer name or even an old Starktech laptop].
I think it's supposed to be a takeoff on the Sony Vaio.
Quote:The 'day in the life' panel layout would have worked better if something interesting happened to [even one of] the Lights. To make it worse, Nemesis acted the condescending jerkwad. Wolverine had a totally uninspired sparring match with Animal Boy [becasue people want more Logan and we havent seen this since - oh right, just last arc]. Miss Whotheheckisthatmaybeacuckoo operating Cerebra [because its probably a routine of vigilance]. Kenji doing his psycho artwork for who knows why/what [because readers dont want a tidbit tease of what was on the canvas with a red alert on] - didnt even register that there is techno aspect to his power if not for the Recap Page.
Quote:Okay, the Hope/Speed Boy exchange was cute.
Quote:Okay, the full name reveals was informative.
But it's nothing that we don't already know. I don't really see the point.
Quote:No idea if Rogue was questioning Scott if he told 'em about Kitty on board or some unrevealed reason the kids might want to sue [because readers dont want a new subplot clarified with a red alert on].
Hope bosses Kitty around [because she has to win a battle of wills in her own title] but she has no hope of winning a popularity contest against Kitty. Displeasing connection to Jean Grey or not. She tries to take the path of a team leader but is just stepping on toes.
Quote:Okay, Kenji is pretty useful with his abstract power [because this new mutants team needs its own Warlock].
Quote:Going in towards the front door another time even though it was trapped on previous attempts is a sound up front tactic [because fool me 4 times shame on me and its not like they could get help from an X-man present with Rogue setting that precident last arc].
Did not like the vague-to-the-point-of-worthlessness explanation given for why Kenji could help them get through.
Quote:Okay, Animal Boy jumping up thru thick concrete is impressive [because he didnt want to show up Logan with his strength earlier].
Was there really a reason why they just couldn't use the stairs? Yeah, Teon sure is durable: rips right through the ceiling/floor. I'm getting the feeling that the Lights are having deus ex machina powers. Whatever the plot requires they do, they can apparently do, except when the plot doesn't require it.
Quote:So Hope has to touch the mind controlling baby in the womb... hmmm... if only there was a phaser present [because Rogue taking Hope's power and
Can we say, "Eww?"
Still not on board with this whole thing.
City of Heroes is BACK!
