10-23-19 Marauders #1

 

         Bear with me I’m about to go in quite a tangent… For something that is an ongoing series, it is best if the series is based around a mission statement. For a mini-series, it is best if it is based around a finite goal. When you put a finite goal on an ongoing series you automatically write yourself into a corner. At some point, the finite goal has to be accomplished. One option is to drag out the goal endlessly which the readers will notice because it drags out the writing. They will instinctively know that the pacing is wrong, and that progress isn’t being made in the story. The other option is to suddenly switch to a different goal when the original goal is completed. This is probably the superior option, but it is difficult to do this without making the series feel contrived.

         Here’s a weird example of this. There have been about a million different versions of “Scooby-Doo”. For like 99% of them the mission statement is very simple: kids and a talking dog in a van go around solving mysteries. Sometimes with celebrity guests! One time a “Scooby-Doo” series was different.. This series was “The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo”. I remember little about it except “Scrappy-Doo” was in it and he always sucked. There was also some “Dr. Strange” type of guy. When I saw reruns of this, I was a little kid and I couldn’t quite put my finger on it but something felt off about it. That “offness” was that this ongoing series had a finite goal.

         “X-Men On A Boat”, I’m sorry I mean “Marauders” (which is a much, much worse title but we’ll get into that later) is the “13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo” of X-Men. 

  13

Actually, it is the second one. The first was “Xtreme X-Men”. In that series, the finite goal was originally finding the diaries of “Destiny”. Again this was a series that was just kind of off. 

         Old cartoon aside, let’s get to the story. This story begins with “Storm”, “Nightcrawler” and “Kitty Pryde” with some young mutants as they’re about to use one of their magic teleporting flower things to take them to “Krakoa”. We soon realize that for some reason that “Kitty Pryde” cannot use it and injures her face pretty bad trying to enter. This seems unbelievably contrived, but I will give the writer the benefit of the doubt. I will assume there’s some well-thought-out reason why “Kitty Pryde” or why some mutants can’t use the portals. I’m just going to give them the fact that this makes sense and isn’t just stupid contrived nonsense used to pointlessly setup this series. Then “Kitty Pryde” steals a boat from a guy. Fuckin’, why?! This is a woman that has very close relationships with two teleporters. “Nightcrawler” and “Magik”. She could also just call “Charles Xavier” who is now exceedingly rich from selling his special cure-all drugs to humans. I will assume that there’re no planes that go to “Krakoa” but the “X-Men” have jets. Ya know the “Blackbird”? The big fuckin’ plane that they use for all their missions. Nobody can just fly and scoop her up and take her to “Krakoa”? Or she couldn’t at least pay somebody to take her by boat to “Krakoa”? She just has to be a straight-up criminal?! In this new status quo, every “X-Man” is just the fucking terrorist criminal dickhead?!

                Anyway, she steals a fucking boat, and she finally gets to “Krakoa”. She also brings some supplies for the “X-Men” while she’s doing this. There’s a not-so-funny joke about the stuff “Wolverine” wants and it’s kind of dumb but whatever. Also, they use the shitty information pages in this book to attempt to be funny. It is not funny.

         “Kitty” is then telepathically contacted by “Emma Frost”. “Emma,” says something about telling people to stop calling her “Kitty”. Ya know the affectionate name all her closest friends have always called since she was a child and she never had any problem with? Well, “Emma” (someone Kitty has never liked and was probably nightmare fuel for her for years since one of “Kitty’s” earliest missions was fighting the “Hellfire Club”) tells her to give it up and go by “Kate”. I’m once again going to give the writer a huge benefit of the doubt and assume this is leading towards “Kitty” becoming more like the “Days Of Future Past” version of herself where she was referred to as “Kate”.  Anyway “Emma” offers “Kitty” the opportunity to be the captain of a boat to smuggle in the stupid “Krakoan” drugs and smuggle out the mutants from nations that don’t recognize the mutant terrorist ethnostate as a nation. 

         Elsewhere, “Iceman” uses one of the teleporting plants to go to Russia to see if any mutants there want to come to “Krakoa”. Anyone with half a brain cell would know Russia would never be about letting go of their citizens, but apparently “Iceman” is a moron. He’s met by Russian soldiers and a guy in a mech suit that cancels out mutant powers. He barely escapes with his life while running back through the portal to “Krakoa”. “Kitty” decides to mess with the sovereignty of Russia over its citizens and decides to take her boat there. She ropes in “Iceman” and “Storm” to come along. I got a question. If the “X-men” feel that strongly about mutants in other countries not being allowed to come to “Krakoa” shouldn’t they officially declare war on them? Even if we ignore that rather than waste time on a boat trip, why don’t they send a team without “Kitty” through the portal?

         We’re then taken to a scene in Taiwan where a woman is making a speech blaming the disappearance of her husband on mutants. After the speech, “Bishop” approaches her and tells her there’s no record of her husband using one of their magical teleporting plants to go to “Krakoa”. The lady’s response is basically “fuck off, mutie”. “Bishop” then reports back to “Xavier” that “something fishy is going on”. This is actually kind of interesting. A short mini-series or a series of backup comics about “Bishop” investigating this could be half decent. Unfortunately, we have to go back to this comic.

         We then cut to “Kitty” and the others on the boat. The original “Pyro” just happened to be brought back to life and just happened to be there. So that’s a thing. The team gets to Russia and they fight the guy in the mech suit that negates mutant powers which for some reason doesn’t work on “Kitty” and she phases through it and destroys it. “Kitty” is then is one-woman wrecking machine on the Russian soldiers and takes them down in an overly violent fashion. She probably could simply phase around while the others got to the mutants that want to leave Russia but instead she punches a guy in the throat, shoots a guy in the kneecap, and gets really over-the-top by phasing a gun into two of the soldiers’ legs.  Then when more soldiers are coming “Lockheed” shoots some fire and “Pyro” blasts all of them. A guy says “retreat” so I guess we can assume he didn’t murder them all. We’re then told these mutants were going to put in the gulag after the fact to justify this.

         One of the mutants is recording all this on her phone and “Kitty” names the team “The Marauders”. Which would be like an American team of soldiers calling themselves “Al Queda” as the original “The Marauders” massacred the “Morlocks” and maimed one of the founding “X-men”, “Angel”. She then states the finite goal of the book which is bringing mutants in places that won’t let mutants leave back to “Krakoa”. Then everyone sails back with “Kitty”.

         “Storm” being a sane person who actually lead the “Morlocks” questions the “Marauders” name and “Kitty” is like “I was on the spot”. She wasn’t though. No one prompted her to give this group a name. Also, again an American soldier on the spot would not name their unit “Al Queda” because they’re on some chicks Instagram story. “Kitty” then says she doesn’t want to live on “Krakoa” and asks “Storm” to stay with her and “Storm” agrees. “Kitty” then telepathically agree to “Emma’s” earlier proposition… Has “Emma” been mentally “on hold” this entire time?! She then demands people call her “Kate” because “Emma,” told her she should do that. Then she’s an info page with “Mr. Sinister” stuff alluding to future things that will happen that are so vague the whole thing is rendered pointless.

         To sum up, we have an ongoing series with a stupid flimsy premise wrapped around a finite goal. The art is good, but that’s just kind of a sad waste. Can we get back to real “X-men” soon? C-.

[ 𝙼𝚊𝚛𝚟𝚎𝚕 / 𝙳𝙲 𝙲𝚘𝚖𝚒𝚌𝚜 / 𝙸𝚖𝚊𝚐𝚎 / 𝙸𝚗𝚍𝚒𝚎 ] 10-16-19 X-Men #1

This comic is like meeting up with a friend you haven’t seen in a long time… Then you see some pictures of them that pop up somewhere in your social media. They look good. They look healthy. They don’t look happy though and every picture they have this weird forced grin. Then you meet up with this friend again in person and they’re just… Something off about them. You know this person. They’re your friend. This just isn’t quite in them. Then it gets weird because they say some things that are kind of racist. This is your friends and you try to give them the benefit of the doubt. “Maybe that didn’t quite mean what I thought they meant by that,” you think, but the more you talk the more racist they sound. Then someone overhears your friend and they’re mad about what your friend said. The thing is that person is racist too. So now you’re just watching a fight where you have no one to root for. Your old friend is a racist piece of shit and the guy he is fighting is a racist piece of shit. Also, your friend doesn’t look as good as how he did in his vacation pics. They don’t look bad, but those pics are obviously photoshopped.

Enough of this analogy. Basically, we are stuck with the crappy status quo left from “House & Powers Of X”. This is more of that except the art isn’t as good and all the fun little surprises are gone. Also, there’s no stakes because any of the main characters can be brought to life brought back to life at any time.

We begin the issue with a cringy version of the first time “Xavier” gives “Cyclops” his ruby quartz glasses. There’s some asshole remark about humans being blind and how he shouldn’t be like them or some stupid shit like that. We then cut the present day with the “X-Men” are fighting the people they were fighting in “House Of X”. The team on this mission is “Cyclops”, “Magneto”, “Storm”, and “Polaris”. They all talk like a bunch of assholes about humans as they fight their way through this compound that kidnapped mutants or something. Somewhere in the middle a bunch of the human soldiers turn themselves in the apes and this is such shitty on-the-nose writing that’s it’s embarrassing. Then they find some human child who was experimented on and given powers. She teleports away and the “X-Men” decide to not even bother trying to find her because they’re racist assholes now. They then rescue all the mutant kids and use their magic teleporting plant to take them all back to “Krakoa”. The magic teleporting plant being a nice super convenient lazy writing way of “fast travel” in all “X-books” now (except “X-men On A Boat”… I mean “Marauders”).

We go to “Krakoa” and there’s a cringy scene with “Magneto” and a bunch of mutant kids. There’s a pointless scene with “Cyclops” and “Polaris”. We then cut back to the humans and the main evil human guy literally says they’re “fighting the future” which is something no person would ever say unironically.

Then we cut to “Cyclops” in his house… Which is on the moon. He’s having a barbecue with the whole extended “Summers” family along with “Wolverine” and “The Starjammers”. There are attempts at humor with “Vulcan” and “Wolverine” and “Rachel Summers” and the cat lady from “The Starjammers”. They’re not terrible but not good. “Vulcan” being there is stupid and terrible and he’s a terrible character to begin with so that just sucks by default. “Rachel Summers” still has the code name “Prestige” which is about the worst code name ever. Also “teen Cable” is there, which might have been the worst idea ever. They had the opportunity to either forget this happened or retcon it but for some reason, they didn’t. Astounding.

Thought the extremely lazy information pages were just a part of “House and Powers Of X”? Nope! They’re now apparently a terrible part of every “X-book” now. Here we’re given the layout of “Cyclops’s” house. For some reason, “Wolverine” has a room there. Lots of people are speculating this indicates that “Wolverine” and “Cyclops” are either tag-teaming “Jean Grey” or just sharing her. Gross. “Wolverine” take sloppy seconds from no man! Then there’s a bunch of boring stuff between “Cyclops” and his dad.

Back with the evil human people specifically that scientist lady from “House Of X”. She says something about having a crystal that could bring back her husband that died during “House Of X”. Unfortunately, no one cares about are these characters so fuck em’.

Moving on, the artist here is Leinil Yu. I’ve never been a big fan of his work. I find he puts way too many lines on people’s faces and everybody looks old and kind of ugly. I think his art works better in non-superhero comics. Like crime comics. Stuff like that. I will say though this is the best his work has ever looked. It’s still nowhere near as good as the art is “House and Powers Of X” though. This entire status quo is terrible and this issue sucks. As did “House and Powers Of X”. This is actually a little bit worse. C-.

For this one my “S͓̽a͓̽i͓̽l͓̽o͓̽r͓̽ ͓̽M͓̽o͓̽o͓̽n͓̽” character (Admiral Star), and my “𝕭𝖚𝖋𝖋𝖞 𝕿𝖍𝖊 𝖁𝖆𝖒𝖕𝖎𝖗𝖊 𝕾𝖑𝖆𝖞𝖊𝖗” character (Muffina The (Former) Murderess Of Monsters), and they are joined by my newly introduced “𝓢𝓪𝓫𝓻𝓲𝓷𝓪 𝓣𝓱𝓮 𝓣𝓮𝓮𝓷𝓪𝓰𝓮 𝓦𝓲𝓽𝓬𝓱” character, Briana The Adolescent Sorceress/ Bruja. Here I’m taking the official Inktober prompts from Jake Parker along with numerous other prompts and weaving them into a story. There’s 33 prompts in total… Because 33 is a significant number… 

50 Words Per Day: Admiral Star, Muffina, Briana, and Cowgirl Muffina go to a food court and summon the version of Rose from this world. From Rose’s information Knot is able to turn the large cumbersome Flamming sword into a better normal-sized sword. Elsewhere Mercy awakens from a pleasant dream and tends to sheep.

  1. Day 27- October 27 (No color version)
