    Let's go in hard. Who thinks swearing is funny nowadays? Surely that ship sailed decades ago. I try not to curse in my feedback because I know you don't like it but the try-hard dialogue is almost making me swear.

    It turns out my comment on the last episode was based on a misunderstanding. I thought the Cotati were in Wakanda and they were actually in Genosha all along. It does make me wonder why they were talking about vibranium last issue.

    I really hate Hordeculture. They are just a number of dated jokes rolled together and I automatically flinch every time I see them. As you know I read a lot of Marvel on Unlimited and they hype new releases to you. I remember seeing this series being promoted and clicking through to the description, seeing Hordeculture and saying no. Their presence made me reject a free comic. Of course I knew in the back of my head that I'd eventually have to read it to keep up with X-Lapsed.

    The scene with Black Tom just made me think of my allergies. I imagine the Morlock healer is struggling to get round to the mortally wounded members of X-Force because he's got a mile-long queue of hayfever sufferers.

    The art was nice again and it was better than issue 1 so maybe by issue 4 we'll have a series that doesn't make me angry.
