155: Generation X # 20 - 25 (Mondo’s a Plant)

What’s Covered?

Generation X # 20 - 25, Annual '96

My Connections

I'm going to share right off the bat that Generation X is getting pretty boring to me. If I wasn't dying to know the truth about Monet, I may have dropped off by now. Marvel Unlimited is going to stop covering this series soon, so I'll have a big decision to make. There is so little plot development in these stories in particular, I'm literally going to copy and paste my bulleted notes into the Synopsis and call it a day.

A few points worth expanding on though. We learn that Mondo has actually be a "plant" for Black Tom all along. To be honest, I keep forgetting there is a character named Mondo on the team. He has gotten so little attention, even less than he got in Age of Apocalypse, so this had zero impact on my emotions.

Also, there's Howard the Duck in this. It's...pretty weird.
