X-Men’s Professor X Finally Ends Nuclear War In The Marvel Universe
Patrick Stewart is undeniably the right choice for the role of Professor X. But among audiences who know him for the role. the good paterfamilias of the space opera and the X-Men movies with Xavier are a bit lighter, it creates an orthodox understanding of Charles Xavier as a good man.
In the comics, as they say, Professor X is an asshole. He is an emotionally distant, morally damaged, absent father and responds to problems by playing dead and not telling anyone about it; leaving his students in the hands of a newly reformed super-criminal to escape into space with his sexy alien wife; or change the memories of his closest allies and most hated enemies without consensus.
And this week Immortal mutant #10, Professor Xavier wants credit for not worse. After all, he is the reason there will never be a nuclear war.
What else is happening in the pages of our favorite comics? We will tell you. Welcome to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of the books our comics editors loved over the past week. It’s part social pages about superhero lives, part read recommendations, part ‘check out this amazing piece of art’. There may be some spoilers. There may not be enough context. But there will be great comics. (And if you missed the final edition, read this.)
Immortal Mutant #10
In a broader editorial sense, Immortal mutant is a story that leads to Sinister sin, an upcoming X-Men crossover in which we get to find out what happens when the evil gene witch Mister Sinister gains full control of Krakoa — but it’s told through Charles’ narration Xavier. It’s a monologue that begins as a confession of his own flaws, to the point where Charles once again shows that even in such a crowded field as the “mutant guilty of god” saint”, he is still an exception.
Monologue issues can be difficult to deal with without completely separate text and images, but writer Kieron Gillen and artist Lucas Warneck keep things in balance. That’s adorable, because it would really be a shame if the idea that Professor X mentally locked himself out of everyone in every chain of nuclear weapons command around the globe got stuck in a banal comic book.
Night Wing #100
As a DC veteran, I’m used to the promising reboot and reincarnation scene and future states and sunrises – but I wouldn’t be a DC fan if I hadn’t been in line to buy. tickets every time with hope in my heart. Will the Teen Titans replace the Justice League forever as Earth’s first super team? Absolutely not.
Do I want to see what happens with this admission that the Titans – thanks to their rather popular animated and live-action adaptations – are more present and beloved in current nerds’ hearts than mentors. theirs? A lot yes. But more than that, I love how Nightwing’s dramatic expansion of editorial responsibilities seems to be integrated right into his whip-smart solo series. Please stop the universe crisis continuously, please continuously more characters.
Writer Jason Aaron who punished (drawn by Jesús Saiz and Paul Azaceta) is an interesting book. This may sound like a faint compliment, but given the character’s co-op status, it’s actually a pretty significant achievement. For example, issue number 9 creates emotional ups and downs around Maria, Frank’s wife – who was revived by the Hand cult, bullet scars and all.
Maria went through the series dazed and stunned, and the matter of doing this trick makes you think she would be horrified to find out that Frank has actually become the avatar for two other murderous gods. each other, only to reveal that Maria had the kind of outlook on Frank’s deeds that would make even the most romantic Gothic author blink. She is down for this, and offered herself as the high priestess of the Hand — you know, Immortal ninja from the manga Daredevil?
No who punished comics will have a measurable impact on the cop and the guys who want to plaster his skull on their cars and tactical vests. Why Not make him completely unrecognizable in the wildest way possible? Why not really.
Batman — A Bad Day: Bane
I’ll admit, I’m a Bane aficionado. He’s probably the most problematic character I’ve come to really love, from his fake Latino-countryside-invented-a-white-guy look to his wild psyche. his comic when a guy was born in prison and decided to hate Batman a little bit. day. I like this guy. I like it when the stories go This guy is special and treat him very seriously.
Joshua Williamson and Howard Porter’s discovery of him examines a lot of my favorite Bane boxes: It reminds the reader of the things he has in common with Batman, it sparks his crusade against back to the drug that was once his greatest strength and weakness, it caught him ripping off a man’s jaw with his bare hands. I agree.
Dark Web: Mutant #2
Are you having a bad day? Would you like to see a recent example of how to restrain and disable Cyclops? Do you think supercriminals discuss these ideas with each other? Do they gather networking groups that talk about how to create more creative death traps? I hope they do.
