If I'm being honest I grew up not caring about superheroes-I'm not into crime stories and it's hard for me to be really invested too hard in whether the bad guy gets a giant diamond or not, when the bad guy isn't a lazy xenophobic caricature. I watch ...more

Ann Nocenti's writing is not for everyone. It is weird. But it's definitely my thing.

Uncanny X-Force, Vol. 2 by Sam Humphries

I really liked the first volume but it all fell apart here. The stuff with Psylocke and Fantomex went on way too long and the second part made less and less sense.
In spite of that it was still entertaining?

Were the people that didn't like this reading it drunk? I dunno but I loved it. I liked what it did with pretty much every character, including Psylocke who I've had issues with since her body swap but this book actually made me like her and care abo ...more

This is very good.

Well if you can't make a Holocaust survivor's story moving you probably should not be a writer but it was very well executed and well researched.

I have to process this more to think about how well it works as a Magneto story, specif

Paul Cornell
“In this place, upwards of 400,000
British men were going to be killed. They'd lost 20,000
just the other day. He sucked a grim smile. It was like
rich countries deliberately killing themselves, leaving
their battered remains ready for the revolution that would surely come, for who could return home without
wanting to face those who had wasted good men thus?”
Paul Cornell, Human Nature

Frantz Fanon
“It is at this level that racism is treated as a question of persons.

There are a few hopeless racists, but you must admit that on the whole the population likes....

With time all this will disappear.

This is the country where there is the least amount of race prejudice.

At the United Nations there is a commission to fight race prejudice.

Films on race prejudice, poems on race prejudice, messages on race prejudice.

Spectacular and futile condemnations of race prejudice. In reality, a colonial country is a racist country. If in England, in Belgium, or in France, despite the democratic principles affirmed by these respective nations, there are still racists, it is these racists who, in their opposition to the country as a whole, are logically consistent.

It is not possible to enslave men without logically making them inferior through and through. And racism is only the emotional, affective, sometimes intellectual explanation of this inferiorization.”
Frantz Fanon, Toward the African Revolution

Ursula K. Le Guin
“Sometimes a god comes," Selver said. "He brings a new way to do a thing, or a new thing to be done. A new kind of singing, or a new kind of death. He brings this across the bridge between the dream-time and the world-time. When he has done this, it is done. You cannot take things that exist in the world and try to drive them back into the dream, to hold them inside the dream with walls and pretenses. That is insanity. What is, is. There is no use pretending, now, that we do not know how to kill one another.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, The Word for World is Forest
