W sneaking into Genosha to kill Mags
Just the danger room

X-Men Unlimited # 23: Professor X is a Jerk!
Writer - Ben Raab
Pencils - Al Rio
Marrow threatens X for getting in her head
X being too stern. Goes for an Astral stroll.
Checks on Gen X. Thinks they are arrogant
Next, XF. Then Cable
Rogue comes to Kitty for advice
X pushed her hard, re-enacting her fight against the Avengers
X tells Kitty to shape up or ship out
Kitty tells NC and Col that X is still a jerk.
Turns out X is shaken by Magneto, thinking Mags won. NC reminds him that they lost a battle, but not the war.
I'm a few issues ahead of this. Professor X is still being a huge dick.
My Connections and Creators
I feel like the concept of Genosha has changed too much. The Civil War part seems inflated. Like at one point the mutates were brainwashed and happy to be free. Then all of a sudden...boom, civil war. It just hasn't seemed right.
Way too much haughty dialogue. Mags and QS sound too preachy. I'll blame this Joe Purett guy.
(Sorry for the succinct blog today. My next one will be better if the story is better.)
