Last review of the night goes to X-Men Legacy. Um... That's all I've got.
X-Men Legacy #265:
Summary: So after the events of last issue, Rogue, Weapon Omega and Mimic are all walking bombs now. Beast tries several ways to get the three to lose the energy that was soon going to make them explode, but it's no use as Beast can't seem to fix the problem. He does tell Rachel that if worse comes to worse, she should use her telepathy to put the trio into a comatose state that would prevent them from exploding. Rachel doesn't like that idea, but realizing it was either that or let them blow up, taking the school with them, she had no real choice. Eventually Mimic recalls a fight he had against the Super-Adaptoid and how he defeated it(by absorbing it's powers as it tried to absorb his, causing it to short out), and figures that using the same strategy was worth a shot. With time running out and no other options, Beast gives the trio of bombs the go-ahead and the gamble seems to work as Rogue and Mimic lose the bomb energy... However, Omega still has it(as he expected). Omega seems resigned to his fate, but Mimic convinces him to not give up on his life and to allow Mimic to place Omega in a coma, that way Beast could keep looking for a cure/fix. Mimic and Omega say their good-byes to each other and Mimic shuts down Omega's mind. With that, Mimic asks Rogue is he could remain at the school since he didn't want to leave his friend behind, and seeing how heroically Mimic acted throughout this entire ordeal, Rogue tells Mimic he could stay.
Thoughts: Eh. This issue was okay, and all, but I never really felt anybody was in any real danger. We all knew Rogue and/or the school wasn't going to blow up, and we knew Rogue wasn't going to be placed in a coma, which meant that at the very least, she'd be cured, and by that logic, if she could be cured, so could the other two. In the end though, Omega WASN'T cured, but to be honest, I really don't care about Omega, so his plight didn't really touch me much. And for a story like this, one that's supposed to be emotional and all, not caring about one(or two) of the tragic characters kind of reduces the impact of the story. Or at least that's my feelings on things here.
Score: 6 1/2 out of 10.
I'm glad SOMEBODY remembers that Mags is the scum of the Earth!
