It's like this weird thing that writers are doing now, where they feel if they write the characters in accent that it's making them a caricature of a culture. Wood went off about that too. He refused to use the southern vernacular and have her say "shugah" and stuff.

On Wade and Rogue, I don't think I mind. Some people say it was telegraphed. I just reread this whole run recently (and recommend SDA does it) but I didn't see it coming. That being said it's a weird thing to set up right as you leave the book. You'd think he'd want to explore the relationship instead of just creating it and leaving.

This was my first issue of Duggan's UA and I'm glad it was my first.

Rogue making her verbal stand, choosing to run away from Weapon One and giving Charlie proper send off has to be one of the best X-writing in the last few years. So sweet and hard at the same time.

And to top it of, Duggan had her maintain her character and try to fix her mess by kissing Wade and absorbing his pain and injuries.... WOW. I'm in awe.

Her standing up to, or defying Steve has been the MO of the book since Attack on Pleasant Hill ended and he became douchey.

I loved last issue. The life goes on kind of farewell.

It convinced me that Duggan has to write X-Men. The way he waves X-concepts into work leaves me dazzled with feelings.

The Cable stuff was great. Loved Synapse hiding from Hound, running into Stryfe, and saying things like "mutants have it way worse". Cable saying she would've been a great student of Charles Xavier was also choice.
