Did you read IvX? Did you love how #s 0 and 1 started off in such a fantastic way only to devolve into a horrible mess ending in the tragedy and character assassination of Emma Frost.
OKAY, OKAY, i am biased. Emma is one of my favorite characters, but then there’s a few things that Soule did that pissed me off, maybe not the smallest of which was being a literary hypocrite but I digress. This post is not to rant and rave despite there being some legitimate things to rant and rave about. Bottom line with IvX, comes from Old Man Logan.
The Inhumans were in the wrong and the X-men were justified, but that’s not how the finale played out. Emma was turned into the new big-bad, the X-men come off as irrational zealots, and the Inhumans were intended (it seems) to come off as the heroes because reasons. None of which have anything to do with Soule having written Inhumans for the last few years and not letting his own bias come out in his writing.
Sooooooooooooo, on with the show. If you’re like me, and a bunch of other people, you were probably annoyed at how smug Medusa came off in IvX#6. And if you weren’t annoyed at the level of smug, you had to be slightly perplexed by Medusa and Blackbolt having a celebratory drink over the shard of diamond Medusa squeezed out of Emma’s head, right? Anyway a few of us got together and done this.
It started with This: Enjoy!
Anyway See you next time?
