Pixie and the X-Men’s revenge, Pt. 2

Stab him again to be sure!

Arousing Grammar

We left off right as the X-Men attacked the Hellfire Club’s little base, because the people in the base savagely beat Pixie and dozens of other mutants and totally deserve this beatdown.  Note for future bigots: if one wishes to attack a minority group of people, it would help if this minority group aren’t all trained fighters with superpowers like laser eyes and diamond skin.  We’ll pick up once more with Uncanny X-Men #501-503, written by Matt Fraction & Ed Brubaker and drawn by Greg Land with the beginning of the X-Men’s retaliation:

We know enough about superhero fights that henchmen never stand a chance.  They exist solely to ramp up the excitement and show off what our heroes can do.  Crowded battles rock.  But let’s not forget about the mutant supervillain Empath (Manuel de la Rocha) and his emotional death glares.

Pixie and the X-Men’s revenge, Pt. 1

This is why I’m not a fan of humans in the Marvel Universe. All the superpowered people around and they target mutants for Hate Crimes.

It’s a normal California evening for dear Pixie — a well-deserved night of fun for our teenage X-Man.

Yeah, welcome to the world of mutants.  As the X-Men symbolize minority discrimination in comic books, we can all probably relate to their struggle for acceptance on some level.  And while we don’t have the ability to lift buildings or summon lightning storms, we can certainly take solace that those who get attacked for being different have the ability to retaliate.  And by retaliate I mean destroy the hopes, dreams, and definitely internal organs of anyone who dares target them.  So yes, these bigots took down a young girl in a surprise attack, but they know she has teammates, right?  Big scary teammates with superpowers and grudges.  Meet the new breed of X-Men in Uncanny X-Men #501-503, written by Matt Fraction & Ed Brubaker and drawn by Greg Land.
