Poor mansion -- looks amazing though. Not just a mass of rubble, but recognisably that specific building being crumpled.

I try to keep in mind what it is that Im breaking. In this case, how much wood, how much brick. Elements of the furnishings.

Verisimilitude!

Striking page! I like how you used the
rubble to outline the wings.

BTW, this was probably my favorite issue
so far.

I pine for the days when the destruction of a major piece of the setting - the Baxter Building, Avengers Mansion, the Westchester School, or the Hellicarrier - would have been momentous.

However, how many times has this been done in the actual comics by now?  Too many to count.

It's not a bad element when done correctly and rarely.  Kristoff Doom destroying the Baxter Building, and the Masters of Evil vandalizing Avengers Mansion worked because those stories were dramatic and interesting by themselves and the additional damage merely added weight.  And we had grown to love those elements of the setting as if they were characters themselves and mourned their loss.  And we saw how long it took the teams to recover from it, and how they had to work around it.

But it just kept happening.  How many times in the "real' comics has the School been destroyed?  Not to mention everything else.  And each time, it seems to be easily replaced because why bother dealing with the inconvenience of showing the consequences.  Just like a new villain easily dispatching a Galactus or Juggernaut in order to establish their credentials, it brings shrugs now.

So nothing against JB.  But I'm having to place myself back in the mentality of the early 1980s when this would have been a big deal!

Jason - interesting take. I might think that Jeannie would be TERRIFIED of the Phoenix at this point - but we'll see, we'll see...

Tough to say, Eric. I know Jean is mentally a five-year-old, but little kids can be pretty fearless. They think they're impervious to harm- just ask my 6-year-old! LOL

Can't wait to see what happens on Monday!
