You can't imagine how much thought went into choosing that sound effect! Really!
John Byrne, it sounds like you're giving this much more thought than some of the people working on the "real" Marvel comic books nowadays.
Since I only joined this group recently, I didn't have an opportunity to read the Elsewhen issues until today. I really enjoyed them. Again, I find these to be better reads that the "official" comic books being published by Marvel.
I've often wondered what the deal is with Sebastian Shaw. He's a mutant, but he has absolutely zero qualms about building Sentinels for the government so they can hunt down other mutants.
However, I think I finally started to understand Shaw over the last few years, because he has a few real-world counterparts. He's an ultra-wealthy, elitist, greedy, selfish SOB who will exploit anyone & everyone for his own personal benefit. Shaw is like Jared Kushner or Stephen Miller, who are both Jews, but who are more than happy to ally with white nationalists & neo-Nazis because it enables them to gain even more political & economic power, and because they believe their privilege will protect them from suffering from the consequences of empowering hatemongers.
Anyway, I did enjoy seeing Shaw, in this continuity at least, finally get hoisted on his own petard.
