be added to next meeting agenda.
So let's start with Uncanny X-Men #1, where we find Mr. Sinister has returned. That is your first warning sign. When Marvel can't think of something new and interesting, they just resurrect the tried and true. Or make them heroes. Like almost everyone on Scott's new "Extinction Team." What is the Extinction Team, you ask? Well, it's a team of former super villains and/or terrorists and/or crazy and/or demon-possessed mutants. And Storm and Hope.
|LOL sit down, Scott.|
Anyway, Mr. Sinister, who doesn't like being dead but does like Summers blood, is back and totally down with this plan, he informs them, wreaking holy hell and setting up Sinister Land. Along the way, Magneto tries to make friends with Storm who basically tells him to fuck off because she's really only here because Scott whined. Piotr says "da" a lot and loses his clothes. Danger reports back useless information. Nemesis uses current internet catch phrases. And Namor flirts with Emma.
|I'm down with OTP.|
Meanwhile, in Astonishing X-Men #43, the book I am dreading most since four of the five team members that I liked have left the team, we have Danger escapading with Emma in hopes of rescuing a potentially dangerous computer consciousness. There is bonding. There is breaking in. There is boredom. Hopefully, Greg Rucka will improve things in #44 and we'll find out what that kiss really means.
I'm still wait and see about Team Scott. My biggest disappointment so far is Storm. Seeing her here makes me cringe since she doesn't want to be here at all but is just doing her duty. Where will that tension lead, I wonder...
Wolverine and the X-Men might have been too off the wall for some, but at least it was something new and a little bit amusing. In comparison, these three books haven't offered much of anything but the same old resurrected thing.
