I was convinced Idie would die, her loss sparking the X-Men's split into one faction under Scott, and one under Logan. But while the incident will no doubt be a factor in the affair, Idie lives to see another day.
Which is fine by me. I like her powers, I like her look, and heaven knows, the X-Men need some new blood on this issue's showing. For the vastly experienced heroes - Colossus, Magneto, Iceman, Emma Frost and Namor - are taken down by a bunch of kids. Smart, vicious, well-equipped kids, but the new Hellfire Club are kids nonetheless. And it's not as if the Hellfire Club - actually, let's call 'em the Hellfire Creche - has the advantage of the good guys being reluctant to hit them ... they're all fine with the prospect.
But if I'm to continue with this otherwise well-thought-out story, I'm going to have to just accept. And I do want to continue, as the philosophical row brewing between Logan and Scott is played out via compelling action and character sequences. Plus, writer Jason Aaron comes up with terrific incidental moments such as this. Idie's incredulity is entirely understandable, given the X-Men she knows (click on image to enlarge).
I think Acuña slipped Brian Bendis into a panel ... but I could be wrong.
