X-Terminators #1 Is More Like Something Else

Today's long-delayed launch of a new X-Terminators comic book series from Marvel Comics. Which opens with this panel. And seems to be going down the standard X-trope of everyone going to the pub for an issue.

Marvel Comics

With a dumped Dazzler, ringing round her Krakoan mates and getting a posse together, with Jubilee and Boom-Boom her first options.

Marvel Comics

There are other ways to start a new X-Men team comic book, but this may have actually been my favourite.

Marvel Comics

But straight off the bat, we have the censorship bars, four times in two pages, is this going to be a regular thing?Marvel Comics

Hang on…. did they miss a censorship bar? Or maybe they just ran out of them.

Marvel Comics

Because they do seem to be using them a lot. Mostly, but not entirely, Jubilee. I feel sorry for Shojo, he'll shock the other parents at dragon kindergarten.

Marvel Comics

I mean, really quite a lot.

Marvel Comics

What is this, a Warren Ellis comic? I mean kinda, but not, I guess. Different times, etc, etc. And no one is smoking.

Marvel Comics

Not from tobacco, anyway. Anyway, looks like Laura Kinney will be joining them in issues to come, I am not entirely sure if she'll be a good influence or get down in the guttural gutter with the rest of them.
