I posted spoilers here, on the Marvel forums, but I am too lazy to cut and paste or type it all out again, so just scroll down about six posts and highlight over my posts for news about Kurt:

Eh, I guess it's a step up from where we've been seeing Kurt. Yay.

Did you see that he has been made "team leader"?

Isn't he also the technician for the Blackbird?

No. I was just quoting Cyclops. No sarcasm intended.

yeah, but despite team leader, they could still mess up Kurt. I'd say the position wouldn't last more than 3 or 4 issues...

Yes...he is...

He's also their field medic...I guess all the remaining characters are so awesomely awesome that not only can they do everything he does better than him, they're also totally invulnerable.

Considering what the solicit for X-men: Quitting Time said, that's probably exactly what's going to happen.

The only other option that I can see for him leaving the X-Men, would be because he finds out about X-Force. Kurt would be appalled by X-Force, after all, he has spent many years trying to help Logan subdue his killer instincts, and now Cyclops is exploiting and encouraging Logan's killer instincts. I would love for Kurt to realize that Cyclops is a weenie in a weenie suit, but that would not be allowed in the MU now. Cyclops must be seen as "cool". And yes, those are sarcastic quotation marks this time.

I agree with Neling on that one, that would be the most logical, but Marvel will never role with that. It'll probably be something stupid and selfish. They like to sell out to the emo kids now. They think they'll attract the emo crowd. :rolleyes.

Of course, Nighty can pull off emo pretty well if he wants to. Ha ha, I'm speaking as though he's my bud from physics class....

Ugh yeah, I picked this up yesterday as well- I guess I"m just feeding my morbid curiosity...
I don't see Kurt becoming King of Limbo any time soon, honestly- but geez, where did Cyclops get off crowning Pixie and her crew as the all grand poo-bahs of that particular sector of Hell?

I will say, I did get a slight chuckle when

**SPOILER



Illyana was told she looked 'terrible' after being more or less healed...

***


I have to say- I have a hunch that this comic isn't going to really go anywhere. I see Illyana opting to go back to her job as the uber bitch of Limbo rather than let Belasco-wench control things. She'll probably keep the soul sword and give Pixie her lucky charm marshmallows or whatever it was she was so desperate for...

And Kurt will end the story arc having been stabbed, upstaged, and ignored...

I kind of *liked* him having the soul sword. Anyone else feel that way?

Definitely! I was looking forward to seeing him battle Illyana for possession of it, but we were cheated out of that.

Me too. He would have handled the situation with a lot more diplomacy, grace, and superior swordsmanship too.

By the way, since when did Pipsqueak get so good with a sword? Why didn't they show Nightcrawler giving her fencing lessons?

From the looks of it "Good with a sword" is an overstatement. I haven't seen her handling one in other issues- but it seems like in X-Infernus she is mostly "Good at posing with a sword also check out my totally pink hair except where it is black like my soul is this dramatic enough for you guys yet hey are any teenage girls reading I just wanted to check" until Illyana knocks it out of her hand 2 minutes later.

On a side note- I really wish we saw more of Kurt using swords and kicking some butt. Unfortunately, I think the device of having him lose to someone (like Kitty in his solo series) to make a point of 1. How bad ass that person is, 2. How distracted he is or 3. How frustrating the writing is... is getting a bit cliche. Is it just me? When was the last time he actually won a sword fight? I know he looked glorious in that Alan Davis illustrated danger room sequence with Rachel, but... I mean... a fight against an actual opponent? I'd sorta hoped we'd see some actual sword-swinging awesome from him with the soul sword t some point, but I didn't even think it came up since his solo series. Has it? I'm not very good at keeping up with the current issues/storylines.

Sorry for getting randomly off topic...

1) Thank God for back issues of Excalibur and Uncanny, and fanfic. I'm trying to get my Dad to read the Excaliburs [I have #16] where Kurt is posed like an Edgar Rice Burroughs hero. I too think Crawler should carry a cutlass, at least part of the time. I am still catching up on X-lore, and reading thru thick volumes of Essential from the library, and the tidbits of Crawlage make me wonder why, oh, why they didn't use him more? The tiny episode in Uncanny #204 where he questions himself and then outwits Arcade (I love that villain) is soooo fun! And June Brigman's drawings ... yum. At least I purchased the 4-issue solo run from 1985 that I can read again and again when I am in dire need of light-hearted Crawlage.

2) Yeah, quit getting randomly off topic ... that's my purview. Although I do think that talking about the dearth of satisfying Nightcrawler action is germane, since he gets discarded yet again in a kind of "oh thank you for carrying that pesky soulsword, now do go and lie limply against the ground for a few months" way.

I'll take my cranky old fat self outta here for a while so youse guyz can have a decent discussion.

For Kurt alone? Not yet.

If you've got a bit of money on the side, the art is nice, and if you ignore the uber-Pixieness it's actually enjoyable.

Also: Yes, Pixie has never before fought with a sword or received training in the books. So yeah, yet another way to force her into our faces as the next best thing after Jesus.

You mean she may give the mighty Wolverine a run for his money in the awesomely awesome for no apparent reason stakes?

It's on my pull list...I've got the first issue around here somewhere...I saw what happened to Kurt and didn't bother to read it...
