ForgetMeNot’s Third Appearance! Can we go for a fourth, please?!
This issue gets confusing, with how Hope’s coma and the MeMe program thing are related. It probably makes sense for those who are following the series completely, which is how you should do it but I’m a crazy person.
Fantomex apparently turn bad in the two issues we don’t own. The team put a hallucination-horsepipe on his forehead, so now he thinks he won and accomplished all of his goals.
MeMe is talking to a voice on a speaker.
Cable and Marrow are interrogating Mojo, in an almost human body. Rereading the recap page, apparently MeMe is really Hope, mimicking the real MeMe’s powers.
MeMe follows the recording to the source. Psylocke and Domino are sparring. Doctor Nemesis is enjoying his coffee.
The voice belongs to . . . ForgetMeNot!!! He’s back from the dead and with no explanation. He now is sporting a chest plate like Iron Man from the films.
ForgetMeNot gives this big ol’ speech about how Hope is just some girl.
Cable wants Mojo to explain how they can get Hope out of her coma. He walks away for some more tools. Mojo reveals that he experimented on Marrow and that she gave up her baby. Marrow kills him. Mojo may actually be Volga, I’m not sure. They don’t use any names.
ForgetMeNot explains to MeMe how Hope lost her way back to her own head, she can’t get back as MeMe is currently preoccupying that space.
Five hours later. The team gathers to say their goodbyes. It is too late for MeMe, she has deactivated herself.
Domino references a Badoon, how does she know that alien race?
Issue ends with ForgetMeNot with his hand on his head, I don’t think he is happy with how this all worked out. I imagine he was hoping Hope would wake up as soon as MeMe shut down.
I imagine he will be in issue 14.
I don’t know, I had a hard time following this issue. Usually I can jump in and out of a series but with Spurrier’s writing, everything needs to be read. Though I was able to follow his X-Men Legacy that way but I read enough of those to stay current.
