Nemesis = LOL

Read the book last night so while it is fresh in my mind, I want to do a mini review.

The Good

It's nice to see these "geeks" get some face time. Nemesis is easily more entertaining to read than any other "geek" I can think of. His dry humor and snarky comments remind me of Dr.House. And you know with him, a "LOL" moment or 2 is not far away. His reaction to the Super Hero Intellgent list made me spit my drink in laughter.

Madison Jeffries and Danger interaction often leads to some "awkward teen" moments. Jeffries is infatuated with Danger but sorry for him, it is one way traffic. Nonetheless, it is fun to watch these two conversing.

Cyclops looking for some good PR time, and claiming his team as the REAL X-men was a joy to see. Adding to that, was Logan watching on the tube, making a nice little cameo. Unlike what a certain fellow may think, this makes some sense and I can understand why Cyclops would make such efforts in pleasing the crowd.

Kavita Rao's role was to make Nemesis look like a God but she played that role well and she is drawing attractive. Hope to see more of her in the coming issues.

Seeing Atlanteans protesting the gateway to space made sense as well. It makes you wonder if Namor will have a say in this?

The ending was surprising and this issue did more than enough to get me back to reading issue 2.

    At first when I thought this was going to be a new book I thought - REALLY MARVEL? Come on now? How many X-Books do we need?!? But it's a mini-series so that's not too bad. It actually turned out to be more fun than I thought it would. It's funny - Dr Nemesis gains a personality and I think it's a good look at the other scientists that aren't often featured in the regular books. Scott comes off as a bit of a jerk to Wolverine, but other than that it's good....

    This book features the Science division of the (Real) X-Men (Of UTOPIA). As the team tries to help this company with their floating science facility, things go, of course, wrong.I'm a big fan of Dr. Nemesis, and I gotta say, this was a huge hit for me. He shines with almost every line being hilarious. And not just him, Cyclops trying to act for the PR, Danger getting very pushy, all the cast sings with vibrant personalities.Though I bashed on Wolverine and the X-Men for being too whacky, I feel ...
