Thank you to Exoduscloak, who directed me to the fact that CBR has posted the preview for the upcoming Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Utopia #1.

This preview seems to be quite exciting especially with Hellion who’s decided to take fashion advice from Quentin Quire aka He who was responsible for the riot at Xavier’s plus the appearance of QQ’s BFF Glob Herman.

    Hah. Well, I knew the SF plan would eventually backfire on them, especially when Cyclops and Emma broadcast to the entire world where they were located …right after the mansion in New York was blown into pieces.

    Bad writing. Anyhow, they kinda deserve it. Their faults.

    I actually really liked the X-Men in San Fransisco. It was kind of silly having all the world’s super heroes on the East Coast. You also have the excuse of many beautiful vistas for backgrounds. San Fransisco does have a pretty good history of excepting people for their differences. Really feels like perfect fit.
    I just can’t get why the heck Beast thought it would be a good idea to go out and confront Trask’s group. He walked right into their plan. I thought he was suppose to be a genius.
    I am starting to wonder if Fraction is some kind of sadist. Not only is he causing trouble between Scott and Emma as things were going well. It’s that I’m also wondering how many times within year is he going to have Pixie beaten up by racists?

    I liked the X-Men moving, but if the point of leaving Manchester was because everyone knew where they lived, then I fail to see why they thought it a good idea to broadcast to everyone where they moved to. It’s baffling. Emma was right, they should have screened who would or wouldn’t be called to follow.

    Now someone get that ridiculous vest off of Hellion before I die.

    What is Emma’s end-game?????? Not there’s anything wrong with a darker image! ;)
