Ed and I were talking about this scene the other night, and how great it is. Present-day Bobby and Kitty are mocking Captain America and Beast, and each character’s personality is just nailed perfectly. Excellent writing.
All- New is quickly becoming my favorite current series, and right now is holding a strong second to Superior Spider-man. The art and writing is fantastic, and it feels like a great about of thought went into the behavior and dialogue of each character. Also, of course, reading it while also reading the original series is fun because it presents a fairly twisted alternate storyline as far as the original five are concerned. We’ve mentioned it before, but just to recap, the overall plot of All- New is that the original team is displaced in time to the current Marvel universe. Scott’s being pissy, Angel’s freaking out, and it looks like Jean is gonna melt down any day now.
I posted this cover on my tumblr a week or so ago, and Ed brought up and interesting point. Namely, why the hell is there a framed picture of Scott holding Jean’s lifeless corpse? Kind of an odd thing to even take a picture of in the first place, let alone put in a frame and keep around. I figure the photo probably belongs to Wolverine, which is pretty messed up. Also, here’s a panel in which original Bobby uses the F-word:
Yes he is definitely using the F-word. I can tell. Also, he touched Unus. Way to go, Iceman.
