      Why is Teen Jean so sexy, bros?

    To each his own. It was sweet with Cyke here.

Jean's always sexy. It's a universal law... might apply to all comic redheads.

    Speaking of continuity... Calvin Rankin?! WEHT him before this? Something decades ago, he came back to life after his death in Hulk, right?

Not sure why he's a target. I thought Cable was targeting time displaced mutants.

    Could it be him?

      OOOF

    Morbid and baffling change from Bobby's capture. He's ironically using Apoc's methods! BV-wings are THAT easy to remove? It's prob harder to remove Young Iceman's upgrades? Maybe he mindmushed him to remove his iceclones upgrade?

Seems that young Cable is trying to fix time. The BV wings don't seem especially difficult to remove. What upgrades does young Iceman have? None that I can think of... unless you consider gay an upgrade.

      It's not. The miniseries is meant to retire the O5, not to bring anyone back, specially not him. Maybe in Uncanny.
      And it's becoming obvious what's happening here: a threat in two fronts (Cable snatching the O5 and willing to kill if necessary) and Ahab with his Hounds relentlessly going after them too will eventually make it necessary for them to willingly surrender to Cable to prevent further attacks and consequences. All the current conflict will be solved by them saying "you guys must go."

    Hmm...

Not sure if we'll be getting rid of the teen O5 (I hope!), but there's no suggestion we're gaining anyone.

      Yeah, meanwhile Cable is resetting them to factory settings so they can send them back smoothly. Though this'll also mean forcing Bobby back into the closet. I wonder how he'll get Angel's regular wings to grow back though.

Don't even know what Angel's upgrade entailed. All of the other BV upgrades just faded.

      Old Cable will be back?

    Hope not.

Hope so. I hope this story ends with Old Cable killing Young Cable. Yay paradox!

      &^%$ IS THAT HELLION FIGHTING??

    My question is who is that cute little french mutant caring for OML's hand?

She's the girl they rescued last issue-- the monochromatic boy and girl with no memories that spoke French. 'Member? I asked if they were real French or Fantomex French.

    [snip all of that time travel stuff]
    Hmm... What's XMB think about this...

I think... the old Marvel Method: all time travel creates infinite numbers of alternate realities, except when it doesn't.

      OML about to let loose
      Holy $#!&, Ahab and hounds are unbelievably fucked.

    Yeah, that was a very effectively exciting image to end the ish. (Not a fan of unkillable Ahab either.)

Old Moan Logan IS an Ahab Hound!!! Notice he has the facial markings. This is what the little girl was talking to OML about. She noticed he was wounded (likely the hound infection).


    Quote:

      Quote:
      Thats just mean, OML already killed all his friends once. Not like this...

    Uh oh. (Though obviously it won't come to that.)

Hopefully, this time he's put down before too much killing.

    Disagree, this example was a good call. Cautious and offered creatively contained quartet of adventures. Of course, it didn't go that way.

Agreed.

Yup.

    Wait a minute, is Teen Jean's new costume showing off her midriff?

No. Lighting. The midriff is green.

      Quote:

      So what exactly is this OML's deal and how does one become a hound?

    Ahab's control. My question is 'how' do Rachel's hound marks return simply in his presence?

It's established fact that Rachel can alter her DNA at will. She turned herself into a dino-person just by thinking it.

Anyway, I think the hound marks are like the Shi'ar phoenix tattoo she got and are imprinted on her DNA. His proximity is like a disease flareup.


    Quote:
    Did they really invite Boom Boom to a serious meeting?

If you notice, the only people invited to this meeting were people connected to Cable (and some random students). This wasn't a meeting of important X-People. It was just: "Hey, Cable just got killed. Notify his peeps."

      Why did does this guy make Rachel job so pathetically?

He's her master. She's his prime slave. A lot of psych reasons.

      Wasn't it Kitty's idea to plant the mansion in the middle of Central Park? That is just begging for huge civilian casualties.

    Another bad call.

On the other hand, certain groups might be less willing to attack because of civilian casualties.

Anyway, I'm still enjoying this so far. I enjoyed all of the X-Books this week... well, not that Grand Design one.
