    X-Men: Blue 010 (2017)

    Is anyone else reading this and finding themselves half focussed on finding all the deliberated attempts to emulate -if not downright copy- all the X-men elements that made the Claremont/Byrne days great? It's... disconcerting.

Trying to emulate the Claremont/Byrne era is never a disconcerting thing. It would be disconcerting to not.

    And then there's awkwardness of Lorna feeling comfortable calling Magneto by "DAD"
    ( without quotations marks!)!

I didn't get the feeling it was said in comfort.

    Still, it managed to be a more interesting read than Xmen Gold this month! (With content, quantity and caveats.)

It definitely was more interesting.

    -A rare 2 page conversation between dad and daughter. (Even if it felt like an exact transcript of Mags recruiting Psylocke on his UXM *koff* team.


    -Jean and Scott channeling Jean and Scott. Sigh. They try to explain their psychic rapport which is imporant. (Even if it's contrived - either they share each other's thoughts 24/7 or they don't. They say they do but the dialogue suggests they don't.)

It's not a 100% sharing. Never implied to be (wasn't even in the dreaded 90s). And Jean was always the dominant partner in the JeanScott Entity. Also, it's a new sitch for both of them, so it wouldn't be as complete as it was circa 90s X-Books (and let us hope it never gets to that point again). Lastly, we're only hearing dialogue, which doesn't mean much. By definition, it's highly selective.

    -The HQ is typically attacked but the line up is interdimensionally? inter-reality? interesting. (Pending people posting what we should already know about them.)

Wonder if that is THE Bloodstorm or another Bloodstorm.
