X-MEN: REGENESIS #1
From the previews (found below) a few tings are clear especially in light of the big reveal of who will be following cyclops and Wolverine in the new Status-Quo of the X-men line of books. First up is fan favorite couple Colossus and Shadowcat will be splitting up preventing the all elusive “happily every after’ that x-fans have clamored for since forever 🙁 Colossus will be following Cyclops while Shadowcat will remain loyal to her father figure and mentor Wolverine. It will be interesting to note this is colossus after he was given the power of Juggernaut to further augment his strength. How will his changes affect his personality? Only time will tell! Next up are Sam Guthrie and Dani Moonstar both leaders of the New Mutants who recently found a mutual attraction after years of rivalry. Dani will be following Cyclops with much of the New Mutants but….Sam is mysteriously not present on either the Cyclops or wolverine lead x-men…..could he be taking a sabbatical to return to his family farm in Kentucky? We will have to see! Psylocke takes the next spotlight as Cyclops wants her to head a new stealth team to replace the lost X-force……..curiously said team appears in the big reveal…with the Goddess Storm….? Why would she be on a stealth team? Better question why would she be on a kill team?? Next panel shows one of the five lights toting a gun, since Cyclops is treating even the children like soldiers could this be a continuation of those ideals, with the next generation of mutants getting their hands dirty in the fight for survival?! The last panel is the most interesting, Cyclops telling Storm he needs her! She glances back in what can only be described as a sexy come hither movement replying Scott simply needs her powers. In this panel I got allot of sexual chemistry and considering Scott and Storm will be swapping spit pretty soon we could be seeing all that pent up tension between these two become something more…despite her all but now nonexistent marriage to T’challa. Also note Scott and Storm flirted in x-men xenogenisis #1. I’m intrigued enough to pick up a few of these x-men books in hopes that I’ll get some entertaining stories and Storm, Gentle and Cecelia will get proper spotlight. Oh and let’s not forget we still don’t know where MAGGOTT WILL FINALLY RETURN! Buckle up BH fans we may be in for an exciting ride!
