    Uncanny X-Men 017

    The gravestone on cover should've had her name. It wasn't like it was a great surprise or mystery who got buried.

Well, this cover was released in February. We did not know at the time. Putting a name would have spoiled it. Sure, they could have blocked the name, but nah. Even after last issue they could have thrown a curve and killed someone else.

    Lame Freebie Theme Quote Page. Guess we assume it's Scott talking with the ruby background, eh. It wasn't a bad one for what it is.

    Roll Call Page fails: So. Clearly the WotR crossover happen BEFORE this if Rahne is really dead. And if she is why does Cyke have 2 eyes. Look like readers are cheated of vote and they let Hope and Sean out of there cells to pose for headshot. Is Jamie crying in his? And Shouldn't Cain be included if they're accepting members between issues?

Well, the pictures they used are from recent issues, but aren't up-to-date. Rahne's picture is not of a corpse either.

    Recap Page is... Waitaminnit. Random was a PREVIOUS Brotherhood member? USA has a Air Force Base in Transia? No update on Joseph or footnote to WotR? Sigh.

Indeed. In Transia? Oooo... Very provocative to have a base in Eastern Europe.

    "I'LL BE QUIET NOW." Ha! DB actually has a funny line.

I didn't laugh.

    So, they are literally low-tech looking iron bar cells [sarcasm]with superhuman prisoners on the honor system. Plus, there's the "brilliant" idea of making Warlox blending as the warden. /sarcasm]. First Yana freed Hope on a whim during WotR and now Logan does it for Kwannon. Second, readers need more status on Warlox before just matter-of-factly assigning him this key job. Sigh.

One of the dumbest things to be in X-Books.

    Nice Havok scene given his team history with Wolfsbane.


    Can anyone name all the funeral attendees that aren't on the Roll Call Page? Sheesh, even Nate doesn't want Doop in his Age of X-men World. ;\) We to get an official list of so many key players that did 'die' druing this AoX Evenet. Any names stick out of place?

Harry Morrel
Kwannon (I guess she's wearing the same purple outfit)
Stevie Hunter
Vange Whedon
? short brown hair
Kavita Rao
Layla Madrox
Doop - is always out of place imo

    Is this a new reveal about Rahne's middle name? The service was very nice. Uhh... WHERE IS MacDonaill?

What middle name? MacDonaill Cemetery is somewhere in the US, I guess. Why bother giving the name of the cemetery and not a location?

Okay, so Scott srtangely thinks Berto and Sam are dead.

    Yana, what's with the school marm look?

Yeah. I wouldn't have expected her to dress up like that.

    Dani, why didn't you throw in some valkyrior wisdom?

    Kwan, since when do you go to psionically plug in like that to do telepathy?


    The Logan/Scott schism that results was believably done too. You may really think that Logan will be really off the team (and free to play with the Savage Avengers).

    Fantastic memory loss ending with Emma Frost. Great move (presumably) by her! Hmm... isn't this a repeat storytwist reported to be going on AoX with certain people starting to remember the 616? Still wasn't a bad one for what it is and reminds me of a backissue great line when Swiss Cheese Brain Tony Stark forgot who Happy Hogan was, post-Dark Reign.

    Sidebar Question 1:
    Okay, Dani/Rahne HAD a psychic rapport. Jean/Scott have one OR HAD one since it ain't working for some reason. Who else has/had a psychic rapport in the MU that'd know when someone gone?

Scott and Jean had one. Very past tense. Jean got rid of that a long time ago.

Don't recall anyone else with links. And note: Dani and Rahne were only linked when Rahne wolfed out. This is partially because of Dani's empathy with animals.

    Sidebar Question 2:
    Scott, Nick Furys, Callisto, Logan masquerading as Patch, ...who else of note has/had 'one eye'?

Brian Braddock lost an eye in the great Captain Britain Corps massacre circa all of the Incursions
Alexei Vazhin (the Russian Nick Fury guy)
Erg the Morlock
Hmm... Scott's brother, Vulcan (if Havok could get his scar back, they could be a club within a club)
Javitz the Acolyte... pretty sure he's still dead
Jason of Pantheon (I really miss the Pantheon)
Raza of Starjammers
Dr Strange once, but not now

You don't comment on this, but I certainly will. I am no fan of Wolfsbane. I generally do not like characters with her usually submissive and self-loathing personality. I find them horribly depressing in every bad way imaginable. BUT!!!!

There is no way in heck she should have been killed by these guys. From what she's done in her life, she could have slaughtered a dozen normal human attackers. @%$#@$!@#! heck, she could have simply fled the scene faster than any of them could have done anything. But she just curled up into a ball and took the abuse?! What the?! This is utterly stupid.

No, this was not a good story, at all.
