    What. The. Hell.?! Never return to the afterlife?! What NOW? He's immortal? How would that even work? Like Wolverine surviving Nitro? Replacement Bamfs? Technically we still don't really know what a Bamf ..err.. entails - so Kurt's sympathetic 'predicament' is more befuddling than brilliant. He's prooobably depressed since he can never see the beauty of Heaven again. But then again how can a place be so beautiful to begin with authorize (by default) this poorly presented sales pitch to bring Kurt back into the X-flock? Need help processing this casual PrevPage summary of 1-5.

Pretty sure that the implication is that if he dies, he dies permanently. No heaven. No hell. Nothing. Yeah riiiiiiight. What this really means is nothing, at all.

But yeah, this is what Xavier was telling him in Heaven. This is what he was giving up.

    Is moping on roofs going to be his 'thing' now? Gotta mull over how long that mood-itude should last. Repeating Day 1 is definitely alright but this locale is such a rushed/force plot device set up. So, the defeat of Azazel was done in the JGS area upon materialization? And the team are on good terms with SHIELD to call 'em to pick up the prisoner? They'd not use an X-Cell for him until the figure things out? Obviously, Kurt chose this spot to watch them take his dad away as is fitting the resposibility he created with his return... but then he chose to party with his friends before they got to (repaired?) Rykers? Huh.

I hope not. Moping was what killed him in the first place.

    Oh snap! They came univited. Niiice. As it should be. Then they take away from the drama with the current I-HATE-YOU-SO-MUCH-I-WILL-STAY-OUT-OF-YOUR-WAY-AND-ADVENTURES dynamic that has poorly developed between Scott & Logan. Okay, we're use to that distasteful status quo. Then the add to the displeasure with Kurt's pontificating posture he takes towards Cyke. Another baffling reveal how the ex-dead man is up to speed up to the point that Xavier dies and updated him. He implies SCOTT killed his 'surrogate father' and then turns around and says but I'll drink with you anyways? Talk first, drink later, next time Elf! Especially if you cannot consult with people that died recently, too, for more updates if Heaven is so selective with Earth Intel. Obviously, the Bamfs must have kept you informed somewhat on things that you'd go the at AXM for help to begin with.

None more than the X-Men should understand that Scott didn't kill Xavier.

So much drama here, but in that other series Scott and Logan were fighting back to back over beers. Feh.

Too bad they had to crash the party, or we might have been shown what was on Meggan and Brian's minds.

    That's better. Hug it out. That previous panels put a damper on things for a minute. Also, maybe Emma shouldn't be so smiley.

No reason she shouldn't be.

    Sooo, masquerading as Daz must be a bust now? Makes Daz MIA for next story arc ASAP IMO. Sooo, Raven confirms she has ability to hide her shapeshifts from Logan. Interesting and liekly makes story plotting easier. Yet it felt right, that Kurt could see it was her. Loved that Kurt called out a character spiritually calling out "OH GOD" in casual pet-peeved fashion. (Yeah, yeah same argument it's a common expression - but IMO a luxury more for common folk.)

Why would it be a bust?

    Meat and potatoes of the cover tease begin. Good conversation. Not sure about letting his mother go - pros and cons about it. Temporarily? Conditionally? Especially since he was behind locking up a criminal parent earlier. BTW: Sure, she may have deep, deep, deep down maternal feelings for him but have readers ever seen her do something notably nice for Kurt?

Well, he didn't let her go.

In X-Men Unlimited #4, Rogue was faced with the decision to either rescue Mystique or Kurt from certain death. Mystique purposely chose to "fall to her death" (she survived, duh) so Rogue would save Kurt.

    Kurt the life-saver in action! Azazel very slooowly enacting his escape. Red Bamfs bamf him out (& bring 'sword') - that's fine. And wile it's great the revisited gov't dampener tech is it clear that Azazel has no mystical component since it probably wouldn't work on that?

We know for certain he has magical talent.

    ARRRRRRGH. Nothing to see here folks! Hate that. Readers want to READ the pages not imagine at the significant story going on BETWEEN panels! Sooo, probably a Red Bamf bonked him and the other ones bamfed the grown ups?

Yeah.

    Oh Raven! You multi-facetted, multi-characterized, multi-messed-up character you! Of course, you want to team-up...

Yikes. She's gonna have two exes on her team? Multi-masochistic!
