    Thanks for the Movie Roll Call too. Couldn't place Blink.

People thought she was going to be Wanda at first, but nope. That's why she's so much younger than Pietro.

    > Scott's presence is easy to swallow.
    In space, not time.

Maybe my throat is wider than yours. \:\)

    > Corsair's return isn't too unusual.

Well, it's not unheard of for the Marvel Universe. Is it really any different from Namorita's present state? Or Jean's?

    > Hep's disregard while on Earth isn't important.
    Still a pet peeve.

Yeah, me too, but that's over with. But on second thought, I'd rather the disregard to her being with Warpath.

    > but the Nightcrawler issues were still more fun for me
    Kurt had lots of fun moments in the combined arc at the expense of pretty much everyone appearing alongside him. And yet he mostly critiqued about everyone else instead of himself. This ish, Scott's relatable narrative and dialogue was mostly about his sitch and felt more inviting for me.

I thought Storm and Beast were great in that arc. Only one I really didn't like was Firestar.

    > At his most "likable," he was boring. At his worst, he's just disgusting.
    "Boring" (/predictable) was an endearing quality for him \:\) as he led the team in boy scout leader fashion. Insecure pining for Jean was also a believable character trait. Moving on with Emma felt alright too at the time as they both needed each other for their own reasons even if their union was never perfect. Not sure of any examples of 'disgusting' OTTOMH - although missed out on most of the Morrison run if it happens there.

Boring was an endearing quality for Piotr, but not Scott, imo. Even Piotr knew how to have fun.

    > And this is what worries me. Are we now going to get a bunch of issues with pretty much just Corsair and Scott with Starjammers supporting panels? If so, then my interest will not stick.
    Yeah. Guessing a couple done-in-ones would be my limit. If they go that route, it's got t'be better than the recent Savage Wolverine random anthology adventures.

Not really talking about done-in-ones (I like, almost prefer, them), but even though this is a Cyclops father-and-son series, I don't want it to be. I want it to be a Starjammers series featuring Tyke (Teen Cyke). But I almost get the feeling that the Starjammers will barely appear in many issues. Corsair just kissed Hep goodbye for the next 4-6 weeks. Depending on how decompressed this is going to be, who knows how much we'll see the Jammers. I'm not likely to be happy with it, long-term.

    > Well, he spent practically no time with Alex. Alex teamed up, and then he quickly "died."
    Fair enough. Still, it'd be neat to see if it's footnoted.

Not sure it even needs one. It was for like 2.5 issues. They spent more time together when the Starjammers were on Earth, back in the 70s/80s. The rest of the Starjammers could comment on recent Alex. But really, I don't see a whole lot of point.

    > Ch'od got his hand back! Good for him. It wouldn't be a stretch for Shi'ar medical tech to regrow a hand. Or... for all we know, Saurians can regrow appendages.
    Nice catch there. (Hmmm, does that count as a 'pun' unintended.)
