    *kisses ground*
    *subscribes thread*

    I thought the fourteenth issue was great. And funny, too. I especially loved the part where Kitty phased herself through the ceiling and ran back upstairs. And also, the part where Logan gave a stare to both Kitty and Peter and said "Bout time". Funniest thing I've read so far.

    The whole Scott/Emma thing was pretty cool, too. Though, I felt like I wanted to strangle Emma, but w/e. So, Scott can control his optic blasts now? Or is it just all a mere illusion? Can't wait to find that out in the next issue. Loved the way how they did Nova's entrance in Beast's lab. Very eerie. :up: Though, I still hate the way how the artists drew Beast cat-like. Not my favourite.

    Thanks, Specter. :up:

    I know, all the faces look the same! I can only tell by the costume who the people are.


    I just hope Emma didnt change Cyclops powers from the 14 issue. Thats bugging the crap outta me. I WANNA KNOW! Why does this have to be BI-monthly?

    Lex, you know that Beast's cat-like looks is because of his secoundary mutation?

    It's the only thing I read with actual X-Men in it. Too bad it doesn't come out every month! Ugh! I feel like there's just not enough of it! We get 12 issues, then a break, then it comes back but only every other month! We're up to, what, issue 26 in New X-Men? That's twice as much book as Astonishing and the 1st issues came out at the same time!

    I think Cyclops destroys Breakworld. Concussive blasts will start exploding from every inch of his body, and he'll happen to be standing on a fault line.

    Same here. I thought he was completely owned by Frost. Seems she's just preying on his fears. Personaly I hope that what she said about Xavier making him the leader is just bull****.
     
  24. I'm thinking the mutant that destroys breakworld will be Emma or Kitty. Emma because she is obviously going the bad guy route right now.
    Kitty because it would explain why Ord was experimenting on Collosus.


    I also think Beast only thinks he sees Nova. He addresses Emma when the person comes into the room. I believe that Emma is methodically taking down the X-Men. Scott is out of the way. Now she is going after Beast by showing him the person that took him apart and beat him to a pulp.

    il agree with you there, he does believe its Emma when she comes in and does seem to have heightened senses these days. Think the novas all a trick of the mind.
