I have been reading about the outrage in concerns of the X23/Hellion relationship ending in the forums section. In my opinion I thought this was the right thing to do for both of these characters. Both are not ready for a relationship yet, Laura must continue her journey to become a more developed individual, to find her soul and strengthen it in order to find some salvation from her dark past. Hellion is going through a tough time as well. Even if these characters got together officially, I do not believe it will work out effectively at first-especially the animosity other characters such as Gambit and Wolverine have against Hellion. When both characters are truly ready later on, then the relationship might and probably will be revisited. Also, I do not believe Laura was out of character at the end of issue 19. In her last moments with Hellion, I saw a girl who was afraid to confront Hellion about the way she feels for it and hoped to just leave it behind. I re-read it over and over again. Im sorry I do not see Laura being out of character or a complete bitch, I just saw a women still trying to find herself unwilling to respond fully at an angry Hellion. Now in regards to the rest of the issue, I thought it was a great conclusion. I loved Laura's concerns for Valeria and Franklin, the art style and the story was just fun. Anyway this is my thoughts on issue 19.
