I just wouldn't create any new characters who rely on that source for a super-powered origin.

Monsanto GMOs, these days…

I'm well behind on Elsewhen. Been saving it up as a treat -- and now reading issues in one whole go. This was a real thrill ride. Just the manner of Hitler's demise alone gets the mind whirling about how much history could be slightly different from what we know.

The art is brilliant throughout. Really logical that Logan would at some point have some bone alterations before the Big One.

One plot question: after the first demon attack, let alone the second, why didn't Xavier contact Dr. Strange to have him try to deal with the cairn opening?

Over my decades in comics I’ve noticed there are a (large?) number of fans who would write every Marvel book as the Avengers, and every DC book as the JLA.

It’s sort of “logical” that in a world full of superheroes none of them would ever be truly independent operators. Batman would call on Superman for help. Xavier would call on Strange.

Pretty dull.

So from the beginning different titles have played as if they exist in isolation, unless some particularly special occasion demands otherwise.

That's why I found it fun when, to get around that problem, heroes would have some sort of unspoken "turf" claim associated with their adventures. Daredevil in Hell's Kitchen, for example. < id="protanopia"> < id="deuteranopia"> < id="tritanopia">
Or, there would be a principle or personality conflict between the heroes preventing them from working together ("I don't approve of your methods!", etc) 
Made the adventures more fun and told you a little more about the charactes as well.

Came upon a site declaring that I cannot draw children. “Proof” was offered in the form of my portrayal of young Logan in this issue.

sigh

My thinking was that "the other guys" have lives of their own--jobs, shopping at the grocery store, etc. and fighting their own bad guys--that occupy their time so they may not be aware of our hero needing help.

Plus, how long do these fights take? By the time somebody has heard what's going on and is able to show up, the whole thing might be over.

This is one of those things that people have been overthinking forever.

I'm really okay with the explanation that not every superhero in NY was available that day. Or even better, just not addressing it. If the book is about the X-Men, does everyone really want a page of Xavier trying to contact all the other heroes to see if they're around to help, every time there's a conflict? 

Guest appearances are great, but they shouldn't happen every issue, or they lose what is special about them in the first place. That said, I did enjoy when JB chose to use guests in Elsewhen- he knows how to put the 'fun' in funny books!

Ummm countless appearances of Franklin Richards, who looks like a child every time you draw him!

And not only can you draw children, the nuances of your art can make "adult Jean" believably portrayed as having a child-like mind with no narration needed.

Some artists make children just short adults and miss your way of using the re-proportioning and body language needed to convey a kid
