    "THE EXILES" footnote/clue was given as to which timeline Blink is from. So, is that confirmation that she's the original version? What changes would that mean chronologically retrofitting in that series?

The simplest answer is that this is 616 Blink, so she wouldn't know Longshot. It's remotely possible it's AOA/Exiles Blink just from before she met Longshot, but it's not likely Selene could pull her from the void like she did.

    So, this adventure takes place 13 years ago. And it confirms Selene 'killed' him in X-Force #52 which was 10 years before that! YIKES! Does that mean #52 was still after Gideon fought the New Warriors in their series? It doesn't really matter because it clearly was after FF v1 #1 (not to mention the birth of current tweenager Franklin) so the messiness of any and all of the chronologically retrofitting boggles the mind.

All time references are based on Real World dates. "13 years ago" means circa the 2004/5 books. 10 years before that is circa 1994/5 books. It doesn't quite line up: X-Force v1 #52 was 1996.

    Is "INTENSELY" a proper English adjective for "INTENSELY ESPENSIVE"?

It's an adverb. Generally, anything ending in "-ly" is an adverb. But yes, it's proper.

    Impressive psi-showing by Doop. Not going to question all the adventures even a % of this power would have been useful since he joined the X-men adventures. Uhh, did we know he bleeds blood?

I... don't think he should bleed. We've seen him literally rip himself apart with no blood. Maybe it's blood from something else. Or some sriracha from something he ate earlier.

    Can we assume that Gideon was misleading or strategically lying by saying those beastmen slave army were actually the future evolution of humans? Which is more efficient by his POV anyways? Making men into A.I TP bot slaves or evolving them into beastmen? The 2 lines of defense for his still unrevealed master plan are arguably contrary planning on his part?

Probably lying.
