Another step off the beaten path!

Today we’re joining the Champions, who are currently on the run from yet another acronymic Marvel organization!  This one is out to stop young heroes from… well, being heroes and they’re called C.R.A.D.L.E. (get it?).

After I do my darnest to navigate the OUTLAWED storyline, we discuss former Champion, Cyclops’ attempt to help out his old friends.  Also: The Marauders show up!  It’s about as X-Book as we can get… without being an actual X-Book!

    I've never read an issue of Champions before and I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the character work on this book and particularly liked the way Cyclops was presesnted. I like my Cyclops slightly awkward and dorky- I've never been comfortable with the idea of him trading quips with Wolverine- so I liked the need to impress. My favourite bit was him briefly wearing his Champions costume for old times sake. It's consistent with him wearing his old X-Factor costume recently.

    I also liked the art which is a good sign for Way of X.

    Anyway until they make a great X-Men film, make mine X-Lapsed!
