|Summary: Generation X
are still trapped in this alternate dimension
with fairies, pixies, dragons etc.
and M are trying to make the glamour machine work.
Outside the castle door, Skin and Penance are
face to face with a dragon and Skin heads back
inside to get an explanation from the Grande Dame.
She explains that the dragon is, basically, a
bully so Angelo heads back out.
Sean, Emma and Eamon, the little man, make their
way out of the castle but run into a troll.
Nearby Chamber and Synch have been led to the
home of the elves they saved, and agree to help
them even further. They hear Banshee's sonic
scream and follow the sound, dropping down on the
troll attacking their teachers.
at the castle Angelo has taken on the dragon,
while Penance watches. Inside M is still zoned
out. Husk morphs into a stronger, metal form and
with Jubilee's help manages to open the glamour
machine. Just then Banshee, Chamber, Synch and
the White Queen arrive with the little elven
people. It appears that the Grande Dame
terrorises the little people and Banshee isn't
happy about it.
Skin is still wrestling with the dragon and it
seems that he's fighting a losing battle. Until
Penance decides to take a hand in the matter.
M reveals that the glamour machine needs a power
source, but neither Emma's telepathy or Sean's
sonics will work. Jubilee and Chamber realise
that his power could be the answer and Jono steps
into the glamour machine. There's a huge
explosion from within, and a few moments later
Jono steps out again, exhausted. It appears that
his power was sufficient and the Grande Dame
along with the 'little' people celebrate. Angelo
and Penance return from defeating the dragon, but
Husk isn't impressed. The castle will return to
Ireland come sunrise, and the GenXer's along with
it. In one of the castle's turrets Monet and Emma
talk, M isn't pleased with what she did that day.
Despite the fact that she, to all intents and
purposes, saved the day.
I still don't like this story arc, but the
dialogue between the GenX members made it
bearable. Tom Grummett's art is fine, but Paige
and Emma are almost indistinguishable and all the
characters seem to have unusually high foreheads.
But at least the GenXer's look like teens.
