So I'll be leaving pretty early because I'm going to Dublin comic con & a part of me felt happy about going when the last convention was cancelled, because I was going to go as a character who I wanted to do when I started to cosplay. But I'm not allowed to go as them because apparently they're from a anime that has gay themes & so what if they are, but now I'm stuck cosplaying the same character I've already done at the last con last year. People ask me why I'm upset & it's simply because some people are too controlling witch defeats the point of doing a character that I would like to do. I actually bought another costume but I wasn't feeling too confident about the top & I haven't even cut the wig yet mainly because it feels cheap, but I didn't buy it so that says a lot. I'll try to enjoy tomorrow but It'll probably be the last time I chose to cosplay with other people being involved to begin with, personally I feel like I have no artistic freedom to create or cosplay & it sucks that whole thing feels like a waste of my time. But yeah here's a picture of Gambit I did a while ago & I read Mr and Mrs X, and I'm so over the moon that my two favourite X-Men character's get a ongoing title. Also X-Men Gold #30 was probably the only issue of the series that I enjoyed reading because of the whole cop out of the Kitty & Peter wedding made sense to me, and the way Gambit asked Rogue to spend the rest of his life with her was beautiful. I really hope the writer's at Marvel know what they're doing because yes I'm for the relationship but I like the idea of Rogue with Magneto from the Chris Claremont Era of the X-Men.
X-men Mutant Massacre
I liked this story, but it lacked an interesting narrative. The story never extends beyond, "hey there are the bad guys who killed people! Oh no, we stopped them but they escaped!" Yeah its a sad story, but theres no real rhyme or reason for its occurrence outside of genocide for the sake of genocide.
I do enjoy how the x men and x factor react to the violence however, returning to the x mansion in physical and emotional shambles. The bad guys, called Marauders, kick some serious ass which makes the whole event believable. these bad guys are perfectly capable of killing dozens of lesser or equally strong untrained mutants.
The art isnt amazing, but it ties the story together in a visually appealling way. Its important to have decent art in a comic, which it is, just not some of the best ive seen.
I wouldve liked this story more than i do, if Claremont relaxed on the very text heavy dialogue. The fact he writes out every little detail is in fact a detriment to the story, which is sad because it hindered my desire to continue reading. If there was only some breathing room between conversations, which essentially act as verbal descriptions, i couldve been more absorbed in the grit of the story.
This is a good story arc to know, as later x men issues refer to it. And it does help to understand the overall narrative to enjoy later story arcs. As i said however, Claremont's writing in these later issues ruins the ability to stay absorbed but a major milestone in X-history ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (out of 5) #xmen#mutantmassacre#xmenmutantmassacre#wolverine#sabertooth#storm#collossus#morlocks#marauders#xfactor#marvel#marvelcomics#reedsreads
Second time (I forgot about Proteus! Thank you @wonderwarrior71) when Colossus killed somebody with his bare hands 💪💀👊 Drugi raz (zapomniałem o Proteusie! Dzięki Wonderwarrior71), kiedy Colossus zabił kogoś gołymi rękami

There's just so much to love in this issue, from that killer, iconic cover to the teary final panels. A Malice-possessed Polaris whoops all kinds of ass, causing Rogue and Dazzler to settle their differences and work as teammates. The X-Men fight off the Marauders (Vertigo, Sabertooth, Scalphunter, Malice, and Harpoon) as best they can, but in the end, Havok pulls his punches and lets Malice escape, unable to harm the body of the woman he loved (Polaris). Elsewhere, a still powerless Storm is on a spiritual journey with Naze to confront Forge and get her powers back. So much happens in this issue! From Uncanny X-Men #222 (October 1987). #xmen#marvel#comics#wolverine#sabertooth#mutantmassacre#polaris#malice#psylocke#dazzler#rogue#storm#marauders#longshot#havok
X-Men - Massacre de Mutantes
- - -
Esse encadernado tem uma histórias mais importantes para a cronologia do X-Men, e as repercussões desse arco são sentidas até hoje nas histórias dos mutantes. Já no início é apresentado o grupo dos Carrascos, eles estão matando os Morlocks, consequentemente descobrem onde é o esconderijo deles e começam a chacinar crianças, idosos, eu não lembrava o quão gráfico eram as cenas de morte nessa parte, são tantos cadáveres que eles passam a ser parte do background. Durante a saga existem várias cenas marcantes, quando a Tempestade dá permissão ao Wolverine para matar o Carrascos, quando a Ororo briga com a Calisto por não se achar digna de ser líder dos X-Men, o Anjo preso na parede pelas asas e depois a notícia de que ele terá de amputar as asas, algo que muda o Warren para sempre, e até hoje ele não é o mesmo, tem alguns relances do Apocalipse nas sombras recrutando os seus cavaleiros. Eu nunca tinha entendido a razão do Thor participar dessa saga, ele não interage com quase nenhum X-Man, ele só chega para impedir que matem o Anjo, queima todos os corpos e vai embora, mas agora com o conhecimento de Marvel eu entendo que ele está na história pq o Walter Simonson que escrevia o Thor era marido da Louise Simonson que escrevia o X-Factor, e que a aparição até importante do Quarteto Futuro também é pq era escrito pela Louise também.
O Chris Claremont utiliza um personagem que tinha criado na revista do Punho de Ferro e coloca na história com se ele conhecesse o Wolverine, e dessa decisão surge um dos maiores nêmesis dos quadrinhos que é o Dentes de Sabre. É também nessa história que a novata Betty Braddock é aceita na equipe dos X-Men, a Psylocke ainda usava um vestido rosa e de nada lembrava o seu visual oriental com o uniforme ninja.
