I just reread this issue (including today's page) for DEAR time, and am convinced that our host is producing some of the best work of his career.

Today's page is absolutely B E A U T I F U L! (I'm getting a "European Comics" vibe, and that's certainly not a bad thing.)

Phenomenal page, even by ELSEWHEN standards.

I find myself reminded of the old fairytale about Little Red Riding Hood...

And yes, "Weapon X" was reworked so that Wolverine is "Number 10," with Weapon I being... Captain America.

All I can say is, one person's offhanded "I was only joking" suggestion will inevitably be grabbed by someone who thinks "yeah, I can totally do this!"

Seems to happen a lot in X-Men books. The X-Babies, Storm's mohawk, a third Summers brother*, Magneto as a member of the team, and on and on. . .

"Magneto as a member of the team"

--

Is that inadvertently your "fault"? Seems like Claremont got the inspiration for that from your putting him with the X-Men in DOFP. The first domino to fall towards that in the present day happened just 9 issues after that.

Perhaps a small mea culpa on my part, but I was operating on the original premise of DoFP--that it was a self-canceling event. Having happened, it would create a world in which it didn't happen.

Years later I read an interview with Chris and Weezi, in which he mentioned that his plans included Magneto becoming a teacher at the school (laughter),

Uh oh, I thought, Chris' sense of humor doesn't work like that!

Can we not let "X" be "X" - not ten, not crossed out, not "times"... I mean, Weapon Female Chromosome don't make a lot of sense! :)

I am amazed how your Heather MacNeil Hudson ALWAYS looks sexy as anything! I mean, I'm a sucker for redheads, but you draw her GORGEOUS, every time.

I am really liking the narrative choices you have availed yourself of here in that these are the strongest images of Logan's recollection under duress, so the a-leads-to-b-leads-to-c pattern of storytelling isn't necessarily required in telling this tale. Fun stuff, lots of left turns when one is expecting a right :) < id="protanopia"> < id="deuteranopia"> < id="tritanopia">
