This thread will have spoilers of the latest issue of Uncanny. While I thought it was a pretty solid issue it was, without a doubt, the darkest issue released thusfar. You had Emma/Scott doing their creepy thing and the strange eagerness at Emma's confession of having an affair with Namor, but this is the Colossus forum and we'll focus on the strange twist that occured with him. Picture barrage!
So, aside from the revelation that they were imprisoned and are essentially criminals on the run, Illyana drops that bombshell that she used Piotr's unconditional love for her to corrupt his soul. I have to say that I'm having a hard time understanding why she'd choose to do such a thing. He's pretty much the only person in her life that treated her as a human being (since her return) and she used it against him so that he might understand her better? As you can see from the images Piotr didn't really take it all that well. I've no idea how this is going to shake out for Piotr, but unless something changes between him and his sister he's all by his lonesome. I feel bad for the big guy. He has a conscience the size of Texas and it's always being exploited. Gillen certainly makes for compelling storytelling, but I find myself wishing that they'd write some positive stories involving Piotr. Something horrible is always happening to him.
Anyone pick up the latest issue of Uncanny? Your thoughts?
