The Reddit spoiler thread says this is for Echo, who was part of Kingpins ‘crime family’, but left. So another crime family being involved could work. So Echo maybe using the assassins guild? (The character sounds like Julien.)

You're 100% correct..the editors are supposed to be the gatekeepers but I fear the culture in Marvel, especially in the X-office is to let the creators create for the most part. Probably some interoffice political and social stuff mixed in there as well. It seems as if people either don't know what a less than stellar idea looks like or are too scared to call it out. Not saying all runs are perfect and without blemish but X-Men in the past 10-8 years has been more  miss than hit. They seemed to be on a very interesting track with Hickman but it stalled in 1st gear, left this on the side of the road and he bought a new car.


it's all a learning process. i suppose we should all try for grace when people make an effort, because it's not going to be right the first time. we are all on our first pancake. sometimes you gotta throw it out just to get started, and try again. i do think anya has a point about writers getting preachy and sanctimonious. no one likes to be lectured and you don't win people to your way of thinking by trying to shame them. same with calling writers out on their crap. do we all remember the dark days of calling Carey out about the rogneto disaster? yeah, dark times. people went OFF on him and it didn't make him change his mind, he just dug in his heels more.


new topic: will gambit come back absent of a personality as was rockslide, mordred and whatever the other guy was? (for some reason i think his name is 'gorgon' but that doesn't make sense bc isn't a gorgon a female figure of greek mythology? medusa is a gorgon, right?)


hoping the sassy shirtless and smirking gambit of the gala-outfit is the resurrected version. i don't need some boring whitewashed goodie two shoes gambit.

I’m gonna stand by my original statement, any of those guys ever break leg, arm, whatever, don’t get a cast, show what a good, non-ableist person you are…


Anyway…as far as, KoX…if it were almost any other writer, I’d the Death stuff was definitely foreshadowing something and the death persona was going to come in play. But, but with Howard, I don’t know, she’s just not very good at this stuff… You’d think editorial would step in, but they allowed some terrible stories tp get through, and I guess they thought the writers enthusiasm would pull it off? I don’t know how these things work.

Several of my family members have cognitive/intellectual differences. I don’t know if they’d want to be ‘cured’ either.


I think there's a difference in being born one way and having pride in it and "my leg was cut off by an evil #-#&$ with knife fingers. I died and now I have to go out of my way to make sure when I come back, I'm still missing said appendage". I'm not mocking the sentiment, it's the writing. There were better ways than what they came up with because what they did felt more Stockholm syndrome.

There are people, entire groups actually, that have existed in the in the Deaf and Blind communities(as well as other 'disabled' groups) for a long time that are completely opposed to things like the Cochlear Implant and other such devices and procedures. They view being Deaf or Blind as analogous to being Gay or Black etc. They have their own communities and cultures and they view anything that could 'treat' or 'cure' as an attack on their community and culture, even a threat to their very existence.

Not a reading order, but comprehensive Gambit appearance list.

Totally understandable.

Is a deaf person getting a cochlear implant ableist? If a mother chooses to correct her fetus’ deformity in utero, is that ableist?

I’ve understood the general lack of wheelchair access, and other things able-bodied people take for granted to be ‘ableist.’ Discriminating against people on the autism spectrum or with different intellectual abilities is ableist. Correcting a physical impairment isnt being ableist. I think the author is really reaching here. She just wanted to have Karma with a metal leg bc it looked good with her pink cotton candy gown she wore at the last Gala and she’s covering it up with some nonsense virtue signaling. Forge must feel similarly, but having mechanical bits actually makes sense for his powers. Of course he’d want to make improvements and modifications just because he can. Like Don said, don’t make no sense for Karma.

Also, how long do we figure before Rogue is screwing someone else?  I would bet she waits until the funeral at least.
One thing is for certain, she can't have sex on his grave as that would be Scott/Emma brand infringement. GraveSex > KarmaLeg.

It's fine. You probably are not the only one looking for those details.
I find now, I'll take a trade collection than trying to find all the individual issues.  :crazy2:
