But deep within my drunken mind, I do have a strong appreciation for good fashion. And that extends to comics as well. Halloween was only yesterday. I think everybody shares that appreciation, if only for the slutty costumes that beautiful women wear at parties. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that some of those costumes are based on superhero comics. There’s a slutty Supergirl costume, a slutty Batman costume, a slutty Hulk costume, and a slutty Thanos costume. They may sound ridiculous, but my penis can attest to their power.

Unfortunately, the preview is unlettered. But it’s one of those previews where I don’t think too many people will give a shit about what they’re saying and not because it has boobs for once.
If there is a major drawback to this preview, it would have to be that this is for a comic that we won’t be reading until fucking November 27th and that’s assuming nobody at Marvel or Comixology will get drunk and delay it. And that’s always a much bigger if around the holidays. But beyond the agonizing wait, the prospects for these new uniforms and the All New X-men are pretty fucking awesome.
But beyond the new uniforms, this preview also fully confirms that the O5 X-men and Kitty Pryde are now full-fledged members of Team Cyclops. They gave Team Wolverine a chance and Wolverine just ended up getting stabbed by another one of his bastard kids. So nobody can blame them for giving the other guy a try. Sure, he killed Charles Xavier when he was drunk on the Phoenix Force (and being attacked mercilessly), but he has at least shown that he’s competent and openly talks to people who want to stab him and/or throw him in jail.
This is where I feel like the tone of All New X-men has undergone the biggest change. One of the pivotal moments in X-men Battle of the Atom was when Cyclops decided to help the O5 when everyone else around him and common sense told him that they should go back to the past. And just like Avengers vs. X-men, he was right minus the clusterfuck. Everyone in the Jean Grey Institute staff supported sending the O5 back, but Cyclops was willing to help them. That or the idea of having a teenage Jean Grey around overwhelmed his penis. Now he gets to show the O5 X-men his approach and how he does things differently from Wolverine or the Jean Grey Institute. The O5 may think he’s still a fucked up fugitive who belongs in jail, but at the very least they’re seeing the other side of the argument, which is something nobody from Fox News can say.
It’s a bold new era for All New X-men. The O5 X-men have joined Cyclops’s revolution, the Purifiers are back, and a mystery girl that may or may not be X-23 is on the loose. It feels like Christmas has come early and I’m not even drunk on eggnog yet. Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself, but there’s just too much awesome potential here. And even if it ends up being terrible, I can at least say that those uniforms look pretty fucking awesome. So that’s a partial win at the very least. Nuff said!
