Uncanny X-Men #18
THANK YOU for disclaimer to read AVX#11 first.
Finally, get (more) actual global response to the Events. Even if it is only implied that the world is still 'good with it' it better than (almost) nothing we've gotten for most of it beyond Avengers opinions. Interesting that Kate appears to have dissention but is also impotent with the power of the press behind her. Miss story angle opp.
Floating Utopia now suffers from the same constant gratuitous makeover that Land Utopia constantly got... 'course MEMBERS OF THE PHOENIX FORCE WILLED IT makes for a much more acceptable inferrence.
WTH?! The Avengers LET THEM ESCAPE?! On the plus side this writer tells us what happened! AHA! Called the reactions of 'em -particularly Piotr- after NA30
. Comics are fun when they have some internal logic. And Yana confirming what everyone online has suspected how the PF was just amplifying the baser instincts. "PAINT THE WHOLE MOON WITH THEIR BLOOD"! *shivers at the clever color commentary*
AHA! Yana is not 'really' Yana or so her
...make that THEIR... evocative insanity and speech suggests. (Unless she means WE: Piotr and her.) That was a pretty darn evil gesture made by a 'true loving sister' just to prove her point.
Ha! That's being kind no doubt.
HUMAN BLOOD SAUCE or MEMORY OF A FRIED CANNIBALS BRAIN FLAVORING A PSYCHIC PROJECTION OF A SAUCE? *wretches at the effective display of evil (either way)*
Intriguing explanation of exactly what was (unclearly, there) going on with Xavier trying to mind control Scott in AVX#11. So many levels to the PF consciousness makes great sense. This is proebably similar to where the PF were when Mr.Sinister seemed to have the PF contained. This dinner is wonderful to read in conjunction with that battle going on in AVX#11. The heroes are actually doing more significant strikes here in cameo than they did there. Awesome to see how Scott strikes down Emma (and more expositionally why) simultaneously on this plane!
Y'know what? In hindsight, it might have actually been better to read this BEFORE AVX#11 instead of after! This was a VERY GOOD issue with lots of intriguing content. Deserving kinder praise moreso than other issues in this Event.
