New Charles Xavier School for Mutants. Former home of the Weapon X project. The All New X-Men are watching X23 lay into some robots in the Danger Room. Angel agrees to go talk to X23 about Wolverine’s death.
Later. Kitty confronts Laura about what happened. Laura needs to leave for a while, to sort her thoughts. Laura isn’t sad about Wolverine’s death, she is angry.
That top panel is a tad confusing. We have the Original Five X-Men on the left. On the right, I am not sure. Beast with a moustache. I think that is Kitty instead of Jean. It looks like past Angel instead of long hair present day Angel. Iceman is correct.
X23 really makes a point of pointing out Wolverine’s colors of blue and gold. That will pay off later.
Later. The Perdition Room, Toronto. Laura is at a Canadian club. Some jerk propositions Laura. She opening admits to being a former prostitute. Which is weird.
A gang of militants called, the Happy Clams, comes in and starts shooting up the place. X23 starts stabbing fools.
Next, a hero called, The Chinook, shows up and starts taking foes down. He is also known as, The Hero of Hogtown, and, The Knight Tempest.
X23 saves a male cage dancer, shr comments on liking his panties. That is also weird.
The police show up and Chinook takes X23 to his hideout, Airstream. He mentions Wolverine. His real name is, Colin Ashworth Hume. He use to work for several places – Canadian Armed Forces, Roxxon Security Administrator and Chief Administrator of Alpha Flight. Also, former mutant due to M-Day. He was Code Name : Windshear, essentially, he was the Great Northern Iron Man. He has Leukemia and finished another round of chemo.
Funny how X23 thinks, Chinook, was a breed of dog. I figured it was wind related, and it is. He teaches her the importance of symbols.
The Happy Clam gang works for Pearl and X23 and Chinook team up to take her down. Wind of Justice, indeed.
Thanks to Tumblr user evie-a for hosting these last images!
New Charles Xavier School for Mutants. A few days later. The All New X-Men are in the Danger Room. Meanwhile, Kitty is taking a moment to mourn her departed friend. As far as I can tell, this is the only place Kitty has been shown to mourn Wolverine’s death. Also, the only place she is scheduled to do so. She is not listed as a main character in any of the proper Post-Death titles.
X23 shows up and Kitty runs to the Danger Room.
Laura has found two new senses – Pride and Fashion.
No Ogun so I wonder if I am good until the final and seventh issue.
