I honestly don’t even know where to begin with this besides blaming Joss Whedon for all the heart breaks in my life: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dollhouse, Avengers, and now I am just going to go ahead and add X-Men to the top of that list.
We get the classic funny humor in the wrong time with Whedon:
That’s what I love about Whedon’s writing. It is always so dark and intense, and then he throws in some weird humor that makes you laugh and believe that everything is going to be fine because no one that funny and awkward could do any harm. And then he (Whedon) kills you. But we will get to that.
Logan and Hisako Ichiki (Armor):
Logan seems to develop deep relationships with kids, and not in some creepy way. I was thinking back to Rogue in the movies and comparing the relationship between her and Logan to Hisako and Logan and they are very similar. They are both kids not afraid to stand up to him and that also learn from him. He shows them a softer side to him that he doesn’t let his fellow X-Men see.
So the story picks up with the team taking their problems straight on: They are flying to the planet of humanoids that are trying to kill them to basically scare them into not killing them.
As you can imagine, things don’t go smoothly. Things get so not smooth and so crunchy that every other marvel superhero basically makes an appearance:
I’m not even kidding. And the thing is they all save the world, or they all think they do. Whedon basically spits on every single Marvel superhero ever and tells them who the real hero is (which will not be revealed at this time) and the sacrifice that is made (don’t cry Wren, you are too old for this crap).
I love this team. Whedon fix the mess you made or there will be hell-in-a-five-foot-three-girl at your door.
