All In The Family Part One
I pretty much loved this issue. I am also sure there is not going to be a part two.
Tonight, at Harry’s Hideaway, Wolverine is throwing a welcome back party for Kurt. Wolverine is making a big speech for Kurt, but he is nowhere to be found. Makes me wonder why he even started making the speech.
In the recap page, the price Kurt has paid to be alive again is that the Bamfs have made a body for his soul. Once he became one with the new body, he could never return to the afterlife.
At the party is – Firestar, Iceman, Warbird, Rachel, Storm, Angel, Northstar, Jubilee, Havok, Beast, Doop, Gambit, Captain Britain and Meggan. I’m not sure if in the back is either Cannonball or Hank Pym as the Wasp. I’m sure it is Cannonball. The other one I’m not sure on, is that M or someone else? I am pretty sure it is M.
Kurt is following the SHIELD transport that is taking his father to Rykers. What crime Azazel to place him in a human prison is beyond me. Last I heard, the previous issues have been dealing with the X-Men in either Heaven or Hell.
Kurt makes it back to his own party. The panel with Kurt, Rachel, Captain Britain and Meggan – makes me so happy.
What makes Wolverine unhappy is Cyclops, Emma, Magik and Kitty show up. Wolverine tells Cyclops that he and his team have to buy their own drinks.
Kurt gives Scott a hug. Kitty gets a hug as well, a hug six years in the making! Kitty was lost in space for three of our years, then Kurt died during Second Coming. These two need a reunion miniseries.
Look how happy she is!
I’m sure who I thought was M, is really Dani. Kurt, Magik and Rachel are chatting. Kitty should be in that conversation.
Kurt notices the waitress. He follows her into the back room and we get the first of two comics that Mystique shows up in. Nice that his mother wanted to see him.
Mystique also wants to know where Azazel is. Kurt wants to arrest Mystique and send her to Rykers. Which tells her exactly where her baby daddy is.
There is an ad for DCBS. Now I know the extract percentage that is off Marvel comics, 40%. I highly recommend the service. In May, I start getting my comics through the service. I will still use Hastings for comics that Kitty, Illyana and Lockheed surprisingly appear or are mentioned in.
Mystique steals Wolverine’s motorcycle. It is the latest trend.
Kurt tells Wolverine that he is having a bit of a family reunion. Logan knows that isn’t good news. The only one missing is Rogue.
The red Bamfs are trying to free Azazel, which they succeed. Poor Kurt, has to fight both of his parents. Kurt threatens to put both of them in jail.
I feel like I am missing a page. One page, his parents are facing him, turn the page and he is waking up, rubbing his head. Which is a great use of the turning of the page if not abrupt.
All the party guests show up to see that he failed.
In the woods. Mystique offers Azazel a job.
The next morning, Kurt and Logan are hung over at the bar.
I believe this is Jason Aaron’s final issue. It ends on a sweet note. He gave us back Nightcrawler, which is pretty grand.
