Seriously? You already started a thread in the X-Book forums to complain about the preview. Was a second one really necessary?
Off to C2E2!
It's a wonderful book, one that fits a niche that Marvel has always struggled with, and is great fun while also being capable of fantastic drama. I love the series.
And as an X-Men fan, I'm more than willing to overlook any odd characterization in the name of a fun story.
I agree that Kurt's portrayal is not the best(sounds like Evolution Kurt, I guess that may be what they were thinking), but saying a book is terrible just because of how a guest star is written for one issue is kinda of an exaggeration.
How great was Kurt's characterization in Extraordinary? How many characters had to be tdumbed down to tell Lemire's "great" stories? Where was the outrage then?
"Mother! I would speak to thee of visions. Visions of cosmic war at the dawn of time!"
this was not good reading. Kurt sounded dumb
X-Fan for Life.

but let's try to have some fun along the way.” ― Brian K. Vaughan, Y: The Last Man
I was under the impression this book was more aimed at kids correct? So even if the X-Men are portrayed a bit differently I'm not going to lose my mind over it, it's just one guest appearance.
This book is aimed at kids, so to make the characters relatable, even guest appearances, they are portrayed as behaving like their target audience.
This practice isn't new in comics, when a character has to be powered down or act out of character to make the new kid in town look strong. Plus Moon Girl is Great! my daughter likes her so shes ok in my book.
Are you guys really calling this "bad reading" because of Kurt??? You guys are really just trying to find something to dislike tbh.
