The X-Men have gone to S.W.O.R.D.'s spacestation. Too bad it was attacked and they're fighting for their lives.

X-MEN #19

(W) Marc Guggenheim (A) Harvey Tolibao, Dexter Soy (CA) Terry Dodson

• With S.W.O.R.D.'s orbital headquarters, the Peak, literally hanging in the balance, the X-Men race into deep space to find the source of the new threat that's emerged from the abyss.

• But little do they suspect that lurking in the shadows of the Acanti Skunkworks, a conspiracy is waiting to entangle them...

• And what's worse is that it's a conspiracy that has connections to the deaths of Rachel Grey's family!

Love these characters, and I want to be glad that the new creative team is adding a bit of levity to the banter that Brian Wood scripts always lack, but man, I dunno about this. The dialogue is seriously clunky; nobody talks like that. It reads like an Arrow script, but without the charm of the actors to carry it.

Also, I really hope they don't always call Jubilee by her full name every single time.

Whoa, wait a minute! Did someone just remember that Ink existed?

Guess a cameo is better then being forgotten.

The station blows up about five times a year but I guess its doing it job in preventing most aliens from blowing up cities instead.

Pretty sure the only reason Rogue got pulled out of the book was because editorial wanted to make her "death" in the then-current Uncanny Avengers storyline seem more believable. Can't raise a bunch of buzz about killing off Rogue in one book if she's off being totally fine in another book.... Poor Mr. Wood, his run got screwed so bad...

Where's Lockheed when you need him. He loves to eat Sidrians

They are like SHIELD, meaning unless the story is actually taking place in a book of its own, no they don't do anything right. Its actually rather annoying considering Fury and Brand themselves are incredibly competent.

hahaha.. "PSINIKT"

that's pretty good..

Man, I think I'm gonna like this run. I guess it's a fair point that the dialogue is pretty cheesy, but in my mind these are mostly Claremont's characters, and he never wrote any of their dialogue like anyone actually talks..
