President Blair – Or President Blaire? (Battle Of The Atom Spoilers)

blair-us_1708577cDuring Tony Blair's Prime Ministerial days, he was often accused of acting in a too Presidential manner. Because, in Britain, that's a bad thing.


In today's All New X-Men #17, part of the Battle Of The Atom time travelly back-and-forth, we see another President Blair. Or Blaire.


It's Dazzler, folks! Because, actually yes, an ex-disco performer has a hell of a chance of getting the top spot. Makes more sense than Ronald Reagan did…

Alos, it's worth mentioning one thing this comic does extremely well. Bendis and Immonen portray an actual apocalyptical scene better than most comics I've seen, certain any movie I've seen. Destruction, madness, really big things and a real sense of dread and hopelessness. I'd scan some examples but I've spoiled enough. Maybe…


No, it's much better than that. Enjoy.
