Arkea rebooted the baby's psyche? Poor baby! I hope he'll be alright in the end...

This book is incredible! But although Wood mentioned that he wouldn't explore Jubilee's situation as a vampire too much, I hope next issue she manages to use some of her vampire powers (especially the ability to turn into mist; she's also supposed to be superstrong, but Rogue's also superstrong now, so it would be kinda redundant...).

And of course, I hope Psylocke gets some nice action scenes next issue! Go Betsy!!

...You know, it just occurred to me now: if Arkea possesses technological beings or equipment, how was she able to possess Jubilee's baby?

I'm not sure if this is a mistake or if there is an explanation (like, she CAN possess organic beings but it's easier for her to possess technology, or the baby is actually an android or a cyborg), but I hope Wood addresses this matter soon...

This has become my top X-book. This is like the X-men were when I was growing up. They are family, not the Action team we got for most of the early millennium. Psylocke here is the real one to me. UXF-locke, dunno who she is.
