X-Men: The Days of Second Coming // Part 13

Source: IGN

16. Bastion

The Road to Second Coming: The theft of the transmode virus by Selene and the return of Cable and Hope have forced Bastion's hand. Whatever Bastion's ultimate plan is, it involves the so-called mutant savior. Cable and Hope will soon learn that their search for safety has only brought imminent danger to their friends and family.

Chris Yost: "Bastion is perfect hate, the ultimate evolution of the Sentinel. He has one mission, to eradicate all of mutantkind, now and forever. Using knowledge from Nimrod, a future sentinel, Bastion knows what Hope is. He knows when and where she's coming back. He knows mutantkind is at its weakest, and if he kills her, then it's all over, forever. "

these are great, mucho appreceato, i want more Northstar or Dazzler, are there to many members to concentrate on lesser, oh well, also have this strange affinity towards the X-Club, heard they also going to play role, yay!

keep up the lovely work.

Ps remember the Machine Man/Bastian/Cable comic awhile back?

Doesn't look like Kurt's happy about them just killing people, even if it's bad guys. In earlier previews it looked like Cyclops ordered him to go on this mission and he argued but eventually went. It's not looking good for him. All things are pointing to him dieing.

Do you think Colossus, Nightcrawler and Psylocke will part ways with the X-Force members?

Remember they said about Betsy and the other two: "Three friends who are pushed into a tough situation and will be made stronger by it."

Wow, you people have great eyes! I didn't notice before that the scene with Scott's squad could be a discussion between the X-Force guys (Wolverine, Angel, X-23) and the X-Men only team (Betsy, Nightcrawler and Colossus). But seeing the page again, yes, that makes a lot of sense!

Because X-force is supposed to be the badass team I wanted Betsy on it, but now looking at Betsy standing with Collosus and Nightcrawler and thinking about her personality even in the pre ninja days i would be glad if she took an ethical stand and remained a true X-man and not one of Cyclop's blood hounds. Funny tho i get the impression Cyclops trusts Betsy implicitly.

Betsy and Wolverine have had some tension lately what with the limited series and Betsy has had very close relationships with X-23 and Angel so this would be pretty big for her. Shame it probably wont get a lot of exposure.

I was trying to figure out if Betsy, Collosus and NightCrawler could beat Wolverine, X-23 and Angel in a fight. If Betsy could take Wolverine out quickly with telepathy would be the only way I could see them standing a chance. Maybe if Magik shows up and drops them into Limbo heh heh Magik vs X-23 would be a pretty cool battle between the scary little girls.

@Anonymous - Maybe they could beat the X-Force trio, but I think the six of them realize that a physical fight among both parties would put all their lives in danger and hinder the mission of rescuing Hope.

I think they will just have an argument, and maybe part ways in the rescue. They would all be stupid to exchange punches in a time like this...
