|Description: Black Tom and
Juggernaut have returned with Mondo to fight the
GenXer's. Cordelia (Emma's sister) had barged in
in the previous issue going on about how Mondo
wanted to kill her.
Sean and Tom have a bit of a fist fight, in which
Tom gains the upper hand, bashing Sean across the
jaw with his stick.
Tom is no longer a tree (damn, I quite liked him
when he was a tree actually)
Jubes and Angelo fight Juggernaut (or Juggy as I
plan to call him from here on in) to no avail.
Then Jono steps up and blasts Juggy with his
blasts. He does some damage, but in the end,
Juggernout wins, rendering Jono unconscious for
about, oh, 8 panels. Emma then takes over Toms
mind (I wonder why she didnt do that in the first
place) and makes Tom turn his energy on Juggy. It
has no effect, and old Juggs then claps his hands,
thus making a shock wave, thus knocking the rest
of GenX out.
Meanwhile, (in one of the WORST twists in this
set -although not as bad as Hama) M has been sent
to a private school. Headmaster turns out to be a
vampire. Tries to suck M's blood. (You know, the
Meanwhile, back at Xaviers, Tom is telling the
kids about how Cordelia kidnapped Mono b/c she
wanted to be the new White Queen, and how he
kidnapped Mondo from her (using the name 'Barrington'),
cloned him, and planted him among the GenXers.
Luckily, Angelo manages to use his powers to
escape the grider that Juggsy put them in. Penny
then rocks up and slices everyone else free, and
then the GenXers and their enemies go another
round, with the GenXers winning due to some
However, Tom, Jugo and Mondo escape via Mondos
powers, but all in all, not a bad fight
Comments- The art in
this issue wasn't bad. Not fantastic, but not bad.
Tom is looking pretty chipper, you know, seeing
how he used to be a tree and all that.
Plot wasnt bad. Hell, anything is good compared
to that whole "M the vampire thing. I'm
spoiling the next issue. Oh well. Its shoddy, you
have been warned.
Couple of gripes- in that whole book, fighting
wise, Cordelia did NOTHING and Mondo did nothing
to hurt her.
I DO like the cover art though. A bit flashy
perhaps, but I like it.
All in all, not bad.
