Did you read Legion of 3 Worlds #4 this week? If so then you know that one of our favorite teen powerhouses has returned from the dead…and not as a Black Lantern! That’s right…it’s the return of Superboy!

Share

Steve thinks he might be the next Susan Boyle. He also talks Namor and the Taco Tubes at C2E2. Evil Jeff has a freakout over a new Psylocke revelation and constantly refers to comic “issues” as “episodes”.  And yes- there’s grab bag action.

XOXOXOX

Uncanny X-Men #509 Preview

The Story: The X-Men get up to the delicate art of living as the Sisterhood plan their imminent demise. The Science Team gets to work, trying very hard not to kill one another first. Simon Trask gains traction in the California state legislature, muscling PROPOSITION X to an emergency ballot vote. If it passes, mutants past and present, powered and otherwise, won’t be allowed to breed… all this and a friend returns as a foe and ready for murder. Oh, things are getting ugly.     

In StoresApril 29, 2009

This issue looks pretty special to us for a number of reasons. First, it kicks off Matt Fraction’s “Prop X” storyline, a reflection of the Prop 8 realities in the team’s home state of California. Second, it re-introduces out gay mutant Northstar to the team and follows his relocation to San Francisco as the team’s resident speedster. And third, notice the lighter shade of purple and a glowing butterfly? ‘Nuff said.

Fraction has embraced the LGBT metaphor inherent to X-Men at a depth we never expected. Moving the team to San Francisco, bringing Northstar back, and now introducing “Prop X”—it’s a gay mutie lover’s dream.

The preview for Uncanny #509 can be seen at Comic Book Resources.
