Soooo she's averting a tsunami...and then punches a guy in the throat....okaaaaay.

The art looks great, guess we'll have to wait and see the context of the panels.

@koays: @hawk2916: @phoenixofthetides: @dimitridkatsis: @djainess:

I agree that Kid Xavier is interesting, and honestly, Raze is a pretty spectacular and deadly mutant....so...

Do you think she actually engaged in relations with Xavier and Wolverine or has somehow acquired their DNA to create her own baby blue army? I just don't see her being able to keep up the guise of Moira McTaggart without the most powerful psychic on the planet (arguably) being any the wiser...especially since Moira's been dead for a while now.

I posted this reply in a Mystique thread, but thought it was pretty prevalent to the current BOTA future past future storyline and women in the X-Universe and comics in general...

Lots of folks wanna know who Mystique has slept with, but I'm less concerned about how many partners she's had and more concerned about Mystique's impregnation as a plot device.

Seriously ... am I the only one that thinks that's messed up?

"Let's just toss Mystique in with uuuugh Beast errrrrm, Beastique, yeah, and he'll be soooooooooooooo bluuuuuuuuuuueeeee!"

Marvel has been at the head of the pack with strong representations of women, especially lately with costume changes covering more skin and being all-around more practical instead of sexualizing....but this seems like a backslide to me.

@darthphoenix: yeeeeah, I was getting there too, but they just opened a trading feature...I'll be more excited once I really get to see it in action.

I know it's just the standard card game with lots of bells and whistles and an arcade feature, but since I'm totally obsessed with team lineups, I really got into it even though it crashes like a mofo and has several issues to sort through.

Any thoughts from other players out there? It's a free game so I feel silly even complaining about little things...I wasn't exactly sure how it all worked from the beginning so I probably sacrificed some characters I may should've hung on to.

I got Iceman as my headmaster to start and bought Storm for some team points. I have a pretty solid team with Shadowcat, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Guardian, Snowbird, Sasquatch, Karma and Cecelia Reyes.

There are a number of events and several different monetary systems....although I refuse to spend real money to get some of the better characters and loot.

@koays: You're right, Xavier should be Ned, and how about Lilandra as Katherine?

What if Cyclops was Stannis, and Madelyn Pryor his Red Lady?

I'd say if any woman of the X-Men could match Daenarys' army, it'd be Storm, a literal force of nature. Hope would fill the role nicely too :)

If you could cast a merry band of mutants to reign over kingdoms a la GoT, who would embody the Lanisters, the Starks, the wildlings, the bastards, the pirates and the masters?

Is there anybody other than Magneto as Tywin, and Wanda & Pietro as the twins and maybe Lorna as Tyrian? Or Puck? The I guess some version of Speed would have to be Jeoffry and Wiccan as the more balanced younger brother....

Anywhoooo, following that or any other line of thought, who's who in your eyes?

hmmm...would Wolverine be the Hound...and Sabretooth as the brother...so Aria would be Kitty or Jubilee sooooo Winterfell could be like the Xavier institute instead of sticking with blood ties. Cyclops is Ned *chop* and Emma is Katherine... lol
