    Default X-Men Gold #23 - spoilers & discussion

    - Bobby rejoins the school to lead a new team consisting of Rogue, Ink, Armor, Magma and Magik. They are almost beaten by a danger room simulation of Magneto.

    - Rogue ends most of her phrases with "Sugah".

    - The new Pyro aka "Simon Lasker" turns up at the school just so he can have some sexual tension with Bobby.

    - We get another tease of the alien god Scythian and the Shredded Man.

    - Callisto, Kitty, Rachel and Ororo decide to star in a remake of Orange is the New Black /face some problems in prison due to a mutant called "Crazy Maisie".

    - Storm says she knows Callisto "for many years now". Oh sis we been knew:

    LOL at Storm being extremely suspicious of Callisto. Great fucking writing.

    The stuff with Iceman's B-Team was fine. The prison stuff outside of Piotr and Kurt kicking ass was atrocious.

    Was one of the mutants with Crazy Maisie that one that could control monsters in Bendis's ANXM?

    Surprisingly it was a good issue.

    The scenes in prison and Bobby with his new team taking responsibility in Kitty's absence were good. Of course not everything is perfect do not understand why Storm and Kitty have problems with Callisto after so many years? And something is definitely going on with Rachel but nothing is explained anyway think 7 out of 10 is fair.

    The interaction of Bobby and Rogue as well as the training scenes were good and Bobby and Rogue following the tradition of giving a chance to anyone seeking help from the X-mens despite past mistakes was perfect. The new team even if temporary have potential .

    What's with CC's obsession to give tentacles to his female characters ?

    I really like the new team, and I like the little we saw of them but it's still written by Guggenheim so I'm still afraid of what he will do with them and if he will destroy them like he did with the first team. The whole prison part was really meh tho.

    Why are they trusting Magma on the B-team after her thirst for vengeance against Mesmero was what screwed up that last mission and helped land Kitty's team in jail?

    And why would they have both Magma and nuPyro on the same team? Especially since Guggenheim has only been writing Magma as a lady Human Torch.

    Because even Guggenheim realizes how much bullshit that is, and Magma is presumably Kitty's vice-headmistress.

    Also yes. That was Animax. Who can control monsters. Now that I know her codename I googled her and it is her.

    I'm fairly certain he loves something else...

    BRRR! This stuff has never been my thing... between this, his Wolverine in Japan, and X-men in Japan -stuff (collabbing with Miller whom is a known proto-weaboo) I take it we can safely say CC was one of the earliest Western Comic-book creators to be deeply inspired by Japanese Manga, yes?

    (not necessarily always the good kind... but I digress, I shouldn't be so judgemental - we all have our kinks, I suppose)
