Has anyone noticed something's been a little off with Banshee since his return at the beginning of Matthew Rosenberg and Greg Land's lame duck Astonishing X-Men run? It turns out that The Beast has been counteracting the death seed in Banshee's heart with nanobots, allowing him to fight for the X-Men, even if he doesn't seem to actually know what he's doing. Par for the course from The Beast, who honestly might as well be a villain at this point.
In any case, if you thought things were bad for Banshee before, look out, because they're about to get a whole lot worse. In next week's issue of Astonishing X-Men, the last one, by the way, Banshee is called to the scene to help the X-Men battle Reavers who have taken on the power to assimilate any technology under their control. So as you can imagine, when they gain control of the nanobots keeping Banshee in check… bad things are gonna happen.
Poor Banshee! This dude really can't catch a break! But at least The Beast got some of what he deserves.
Astonishing X-Men #17 hits stores next Wednesday. Apparently, it will end on a cliffhanger.
