Cover Commentaries: X-Men #11

Ok, I seriously love Professor X’s eyebrows in this. He’s all like ‘well hello there!’ The streaking effect is also pretty cool. Also, there’s a vampire. Who looks like a ninja. So he’s a vampire ninja. Which is awesome. Though I’m very disappointed on the new Dracula. Wolfman Dracula and Whedon Dracula is so much better. But Dracula is still pretty cool. That had nothing to do with the cover. Eh, oh well.

Cover Commentaries: Astonishing X-Men #38

Frankly, I have no idea why they all look so young. But I like it. Especially Storm. She looks very sassy right there. But I don’t like Beast. He’s a smartie not a mindless ape.

Really Odd Powers: Longneck

So I was browsing Wikipedia for more odd powers, and found a mutant named William Hanover. His mutant name was Longneck. His mutant power was (he’s depowered)………having an elongated neck. I kid you not. Here he is:

Thoughts About the X-Men or Why I Would Never Send My Child There

So I was thinking, which is never good for anything or anyone, about a comment I made in the most recent Really Odd Powers about the X-Men. And then I started to think about their school and my school. And then this post happened. Anyway, if I had a child and they were a mutant, I would never send my child there willingly. knowing Charlie X, he’d probably have to mind wipe me into it. Here’s some reasons why:

  • The Lack Of Anything Extra curricular (That We Know Of)                                     

Oddly, I am actually involved with several extra curricular activities. I play in our orchestra. I am a member of our drama club. Does the X-School have any of that? Not that we know of. The only Xtra-Curricular (bad pun, sorry) activity there is is the X-Men, New Mutants, whatever. But what if you had a really useless power and couldn’t join? What would you do then?

  • Teachers

Another ‘as far as we know of’. The only person there that I would consider worthy to teach my child would be Beast and Professor X. Why? They’ve gone to college. No other students/teachers that I am aware of have ever gone to college. I think Bobby went to get an accounting degree but he came back. Some how, all the teachers seem to come back to the school. I would want my child to have good teachers. 

I don’t think they realise it, but the X-Men are somewhat discriminatory. Here they are, advocating mutant and human relationships. Yet they don’t have any ‘sapient’ teachers.  But all the little X-ers would probably be like ‘its too dangerous!’ Not if you hire someone like Batman or Dare-Devil. And then there’s the issue when someone becomes de-powered. Jubilee has been with the X-Men forever. She lost her powers after M-Day and had nowhere to go. She had been a part of the X-Men forever. And they kick her and ever other human student (even the ones with nowhere to go to). What does that say about them? If you want to advocate something, generally you make it look like you are trying.

  • The School

I can summon this one up with a sentence. The school is blown up with frightening regularity. I would like my child to be safe. Which would bring us to my next point.

  • Safety

The X-Men have an astonishing death rate (haha!). No sensible parent sends their child to a school where the death toll is very high for a school. It’s not smart or safe.

So anyway, I would never send my child to the X-Mansion, Utopia, wherever they are. That’s another point. I would like to be able to contact my child.

Really Odd Powers: Cypher

Not going to lie, some of the X-Men make me think ‘Say whaaaat?’ and Cypher is the one who, in my opinion, takes the cake. His real name is Doug Ramsey and in an attempt to make him likeable, he is/was a friend of Kitty Pryde. And then after a long life full of the angst that being a mutant is, he died. But then stupid Selene and Eli Bard had to friggin resurrect him. And his power that makes fans face palm? He’s a glorified translator. Don’t we have computer programs for that? But then again, do the X-Men ever do anything realistically? No.

Katelynn’s Top 5 Superhero Movies

I really felt like doing another top 5 list; the first two were so much fun! Anyway, here’s my top five movies.

Honorable Mentions

Spiderman and Iron Man

Honestly, I think I’m the only person in the world who thought these were just okay. I’ve never liked Tony Stark and even the attractiveness of Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man couldn’t redeem him in my eyes. I also just didn’t like the Spiderman movies. But I will acknowledge the fact they were good movies unlike a certain third movie of  a trilogy by the same company. Anyway… Continue reading

Marvel March 2011 Solicits

Really late, but who cares? At least I got it done.

Not going to lie, I am in total love with the 5 Ronin covers. Unfortunately, this one is not my favourite. I do like it, but I feel like the arrows are overkill and do I really wanna see that much of Deadpool’s chest? No.

Ah, this one is my favorite. I’ve never been fond of the way anyone’s drawn Psylocke and I really hope her design carries over. ‘Cause really, her costume is awful. But anyway, I like the use of white space on this very much. Plus the varied textures are really neat. Continue reading
