Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations 188–
Special-Girl, Hazard Hands, Quickie & Spiderous-Man On The P@&$^ Commercial
Wow. Pepsi stepped in it with that commercial, huh? Guess we all learned a couple things here. One, don’t use serious subjects to sell products. Two, which is more important, stay away from Kardashians.
Enough of that, let’s talk some “X-men”. So over the last couple weeks I read “X-men: Prime” and “X-men: Gold” 1… I can’t express how much I want to like “X-men”. “X-men” was one of my favorite things ever for the longest time. Now it’s hard even read ABOUT what’s going on in “X-men” nontheless the actual comics.
So “X-men: Prime” is an entire comic about making “Kitty Pryde” the leader and moving the school to central park. Do they fight anyone or do anything exciting? Nah. Setting up those two things is pretty much it. Alright, starting out rough already.
“X-men: Gold” 1 is… Ya know what I can’t get past one thing in this. There’s a character named “Prestige”. Now I assumed this was a new character. No. This is “Rachael Summers”.
There’s a dumb explanation why she shouldn’t go by “Phoenix” or “Marvel Girl”, but “Prestige”?! Why not go by “Rachel Summers” then? Also her costume is terrible. Other than that it was… Meh! Not great, not terrible.
Tomorrow, Special-Girl and Hazard Hands return. They talk with The Minstrel and Slowku about… Well it somehow becomes about asexual reproduction. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
