Uncanny X-Men #527 Spoilers & Art



Spoilers: Psylocke and Cecilia Reyes travel to Mexico to track down one of the first mutants to manifest powers since M-Day. Gabriel Cohuelo starts thinking and moving so fast, only tranquilizers calm him down. Cecilia tells his parents Gabriel is in the proccess of becoming a mutant. The boys' apparent speed powers causes him to move so fast he disappears, so Psylocke tapps into Cecelia's powers to create a force field around his room so they would not lose him before Hope Summers could arrive to help. Hope enters his room and touches him, helping Gabriel to fully develop his powers.

After having dinner with Tony Stark, Emma Frost visits her prisoner Sebastian Shaw in the brig. Danger assures her that Sebastian will remain their secret. Maddison Jeffries tells Emma that Colossus needs her help. Piotr wants Emma to psychically connect Kitty and Colossus' minds, which she does, much to her dismay. She then has sushi with Namor, who tries to convince her that Cyclops is nothing more than a boy playing at being a soldier.

In Japan, Wolverine tells Scott he's worried about how Summers lives his life once the war is over. Logan wonders if Cyclops knows how to stop.

If Psylocke can borrow anyone's abilities. Then is she like a better Hope/Rogue?

I may be wrong, but I think that Betsy was using Cecilia's powers through Cecilia's body. Basically, she was enhancing her powers and using her telepathy to make Cecilia use the powers. Much like she did to Iceman during Utopia.

That is a very awesome use of her powers!

Why didn't Betsy just throw up her own TK bubble.

Because Fraction?

Maybe she wanted to keep her TELEPATHY at a high level in order to keep track of this new mutant, so she used Cecilia's power to form the physical barrier. It seems that the more she uses one aspect of her power (TP) the less she can use another (TK).

this looks pretty cool. whilces pencils seem to be getting better in this issue too. the one question i have is why doesnt cece reyes create the force field herself? does she still have inhibitions and complications surrounding the use of her own powers? i havent read the issue yet but betts looks really cool here anyway. nice to see her applying her tp in different ways.

I don't want to sound like a complainer, but this art is FUGLY...

Bring Dodson back, please. Or damn, even Land.

Is it just me or was everybody acting incredibly OUT OF CHARACTER in this issue? I mean Fraction wrote the arc where Piotr and Emma came closer, maybe not friends, but fuck, not to mention Emma ended up respecting a lot Kitty at the end of Astonishing X-Men.

I really like how Fraction writes, but this issue seems written under an alias by Chuck Austen.

Also, Namor eating sushi grosses me out.

Even more than the art.

hahahahahha this issue was so horrible. the art was hideous but the dialog was the worst even for fraction. emma said darling like 5 times on one page. the story didn't make any sense. with a horrible story and bad art it was probably the worst issue of uncanny in fraction's run and that says a lot. i'm so glad i DIDNT buy it and read it online.

This is a mess & a half.

Didn't they say Emclops was taking a vacation after SC and there will be major changes. I expect we will go into the head of Namor next, then Emma and then Cyclops again to see who really loves who while Hope saves more people. There I already got the next couple of issues done.

Notice how Portacio includes his own little details - bug UGLY details - like giving Psylocke a stupid earring? And at the same time he ignores essential things like, say, not giving Betsy Down's Syndrome in the upper left first panel on the third scan...

I think that Sebastian Shaw somehow has control over Emma, because this issue she was acting especially bitchy for no reason.

Also I think Psylocke was trying to enhance Cecilia's power, but why couldn't she just use her Tk in conjunction with CeCe's force field. It isn't really explained if she can't use her TP and Tk at the same time.

The art wasn't good...I mean I wouldn't be able to draw a whole comic so kudo's to Whilce, but seriously why charge 3.99 if the art isn't up to par?

The earring has got to go.

The never wearing anything but the swimsuit has to go..... I mean come on.

^ I totally agree. They need to let wear some casual clothes more often.

I get that all the X-Women are objectified but i'm sick of Bets being the most objectified of them all.

tra lala said...

I agree!! You'd think they would be more undercover or something too. Sure, they may be expecting combat & a uniform is nice, but I remember the team used to wear streetclothes when they did this.
I realize they're not a "secret" group anymore, but still. Just awkward haha

tra lala said...

I also wanted to add... that.. what was the point of Hope if Psylocke & others are doing the same thing Hope is doing? (going around finding the lights?). Especially if Psylocke can "make" another mutant use their powers, & at better capacity than the other mutant can?? Strange, itneresting, weird..
