Wolverine and the X-Men #4 (spoilers)

Another awesome issue with great characterization.

For those of you who stayed away because of Bachalo, you have no excuses now.

For those of you who love X-Force, this issue is a bit of an unofficial crossover.

I could've done without another "Days of Future Past of Apocalypse," but Aaron even makes recycled ideas seem original. I'm curious what the cliffhanger leads to since Kitty implies she hasn't had sex recently. I wonder if Broo impregnated her somehow. Angel's new status quo and powers are interesting and Iceman is a badass.

Another solid issue.

I thought the Warren thing was kinda dumb and Apocalypse Junior looked a little odd.

The future flash was kinda cool except I hate it when characters call each other "my love" out of the blue so we know they're fucking.

The first three issues of this were kinda crappy. The storytelling is lazy. I love X-Force though.

I bought #4 because there was hardly anything out I was interested in today and it sort of ties in with UXF. I wasn't that impressed with the writing either.

My first thought was there is an Iceman, Jr. in her stomach, which happened when Bobby slipped her the tongue. :lol:

Kitty Pryde looked too anime-ish to me.

The old mysterious overnight pregnancy, eh? Never seen that one before.

Frag's right. The characterization is great.

However, I can't say I'm a fan of the X-Force b-plot. Also, it really disturbs me that Logan is willing to take advantage of Warren's "condition" in hopes of funding his school. Having read the solicits, that's not going to happen, but it's still shitty.

Wait, it disturbs you that Logan is willing to do something morally questionable? How long have you been reading X-Men? :lol:

If it weren't for one of the UXF subplots i.e. Deathlok, this issue wouldn't have had much going for it at all.

Does Wolverine often do morally questionable things to his friends to benefit himself? I guess I haven't been reading it long enough then. :smt102

Characterization alone is not good enough to make a compelling story. Shit just kind of happens illogically for the purpose of having cool moments.

I'm not disagreeing. Our LCS refers to it as Wacky X-Men. It's cute...but nothing much past that.

I'm really loving this book, I don't care what anyone else says. Bachalo did great, but at the same time, I'm glad he's gone (for now?)
Frank, sometimes I really wish you didn't beat that cancer.

When they were all sitting at the round table discussing their issues...who was the hooded chick wrapped in bandages? Was that supposed to be Husk?
