It's part of the latest X-Men relaunch with the greatest talents Marvel has to offer.

Is it wrong that I want Michael Roberts story line to be in place right now, this very instant? I don't want to have to wait ten years for something that awesome.

It actually made for an enjoyable popcorn movie concept when Tom Cruise did it five years ago in EDGE OF TOMORROW.  Why they would suddenly recycle and graft / foist this onto Moira and magically proclaim her a mutant, though... "Rick NO like, *BAD* medicine."

I think it's a very neat concept. Three issues in and I am enjoying X-Men comics again for the first time in years...decades.

Did Wyatt Wingfoot ever acquire powers?

Wyatt's whole history got screwed up, including changing his tribal roots and switching the grandfather who raised him to a grandmother who raised him. At the same time the tribe, previously seen as technologically advanced and quite wealthy, got turned into poor cliches suffering as the White Devils raped their ancestral land.*

This was one of the battles I had to fight on SHE-HULK, and which I ultimately lost.

_____________________

* Wyatt's Kewazi tribe had been established by Stan and Jack as offshoots of the Apache Nation. When they became poor and "spiritual" they also became Navaho--at a time when the Navaho were exploiting loopholes in their treaties to enrich the tribe thru the development of their lands.

In other words, wrong no matter how you slice it.

I usually have a tipping point where I decide I don't care for Hickman's take on a given book. I'm always willing to give him a shot but this issue wasn't for me.

How does she get any further forward than the point at which she dies?

______

She hasn't gotten any further forward than the point at which she died in her "first" life, where she made it to 74. Each subsequent life she's led has gone differently, resulting in a different death at a different age, but so far prior to the age of 74.

I'm not very much into Marvel. I'm a DC guy.

But wow.

Perhaps the solution is to completely ignore new comic books... the technique works well for me so far.

I was was planning on buying these books because I was somewhat excited that Marvel was making the X-Men books important again. Was going to run to the comic book store after works yesterday and buy all the issues so far when I read about this. Nope! Not getting my money.

It does sound like a stupid idea on paper and I'm no fan of retcons or giving the supporting cast powers but this story worked for me.

Agreed, it sounds like a stupid idea on paper, but this story worked for me as well. We're only three issues in on Jonathan Hickman's tenure on the X-Men, but I'm enjoying this more than I've enjoyed an X-Men comic that Marvel's published* in at least ten years.

*ELSEWHEN is not published by Marvel, so I'm excluding it from the above statement. I am quite enjoying that series as well, for completely different reasons.
