Quote: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.
Fascination is a good story aspect. This was lacking as presented, imo.
Quote: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.
Quote:I don't know why Gideon stuck himself in a canister for 33 centuries. What did he gain by it?
Presumably it took that long to recover from Selene killing him.
Quote:Wow is Eve built like a sex-bot or what?
She ain't no Rosie the Robot!
Quote: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.
Don't see it. (But then my not being a Cable fan might be a bias.)
Quote: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.
It ain't smart. Or strategic. Or accomodating. Or promising.
Quote:Doop served his strategic purpose, as did Armor. Good planning, Cable.
Quote:I agree, Emerick Man - "You did good, little booger" is a great line of dialogue.
Quote:Do we know why Selene didn't kill all the Externals when apparently she could have?
Quote: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.
And this feels needless 'retconning'.
Quote: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.
