I find I can be fascinated by a comic without being excited by it at all - and the fascination is enough. I can't look away. It's hypnotic.
Gideon fascinates me. But yes, Emerick Man, you called it - the whole Externals plot line is a Highlander rehash. It's all exactly the same. Gideon is the Kurgan. Only there's no Connor/Duncan MacLeod. Or maybe Selene is the Connor/Duncan MacLeod character, without the nobility.
I don't know why Gideon stuck himself in a canister for 33 centuries. What did he gain by it?
Wow is Eve built like a sex-bot or what?
I figure the X-Mansion in Central Park is still there because Cable made it so. Which makes me wonder how long and deep a game he's playing.
Incidentally, putting the X-Mansion in Central Park is one of the stupidest things I ever heard of, which is one of the reasons I got turned off by X-Men: Gold.
Doop served his strategic purpose, as did Armor. Good planning, Cable.
I agree, Emerick Man - "You did good, little booger" is a great line of dialogue.
Do we know why Selene didn't kill all the Externals when apparently she could have?
Regarding time paradoxes - I agree, Emerick Man. Longshot and Shatterstar - and maybe Doop? - don't matter in this context, but Armor and Laura are surely doing and experiencing things they hadn't in the previous version of the time line.
I'm being driven by curiosity rather than passion or excitement, but I'm still buying this comic. Oh, and I love the art. Absolutely love it. It's so beautifully 90s while nevertheless being clear and easy to follow, which wasn't always true of a lot of the 90s art.
