The concept of WTF gets thrown around pretty liberally these days. It’s just so hard to surprise people without going on some racist, sexist, homophobic rant on a hidden camera. But every now and then, something does come along that is genuinely shocking in the most fucked up kind of way. Sometimes it’s overly random. Sometimes it’s overly illogical. Sometimes it just looks like the powers that be did way too much blow when they thought of it. But it does happen even in this day of desensitized violence and overused gimmicks.
already knew from the ending in All New X-men #26 that the future
Brotherhood of Mutants from X-men: Battle of the Atom was back. They even took
some time to rough up X-23. But their return also offers the opportunity to answer
some of the many unanswered questions
from Battle of the Atom. Even though it was a big ass event, it left some big
ass plot holes behind. On top of that, the future Brotherhood of Mutants stuck
around to continue fucking up the past. Now they’re finally getting around to
But one of the less pressing questions had to do with Charles Xavier Jr. He
revealed himself as Xavier’s grandson. Nobody really thought much of it. I know
I didn’t, but I was stoned. I have an excuse. However, how the fuck did he end
up going the complete opposite direction as his pacifist grandfather? Was he
really just born with a “fuck the X-men” mentality? Well Newsarama released a
preview of All New X-men #27 and it has in it a WTF revelation that could leave
the most sober among us dazed.
So Mystique is the one that shat out Xavier Jr. Fuck, I’ve got nothing here.
Even I can’t get stoned enough to make sense of this shit. For one, how the
fuck does Mystique even let herself get knocked up? Given how badly shit turns
out with Nightcralwer and Rogue, shouldn’t she have gotten her tubes tied?
Plus, how can she even find time to get knocked up when she’s so busy being an
unrepentant sociopath? I’m struggling to wrap my head around it and I just
fought off a hangover.
But as fucked up as it is, it does answer one question. This is why Xavier Jr.
is such an asshole compared to his grandfather. Mystique gave birth to him and
ditched him. Unlike Nightcrawler, he didn’t get to join the circus or find
religion to make him not be an asshole. Maybe this will come up in future
issues. But right now, my head is still spinning and I’m going to need a shit
tone of blow between now and next week when the issue comes out. I just hope that
on the morning I get my comics, I wake up with my pants on and my kidneys still
in place. Nuff said!
