    Football: foreVAR confused

    Also, the World Cup will be a clusterfuck because there will be less days to play, and less time between games. Also, the countries that adopt the calendar year for the season will also be fucked because they decided to hold the tournament in late November and December, meaning they'll have to begin the 2022 season (and perhaps the one before that) early, which means facing scorching summer heat or freezing deep winter cold, depending on where they are in the globe.

    Hickman said he grew on X-men and LOSH as his main books. And the rumor was before Bendis went to DC.

    Haven't read it, but Bendis strikes me as the absolutely wrong writer for a LOSH book. The right one is Hickman, ironically enough. Speaking of him, X-men #2, A.K.A. the Dad issue, could have been very good, but the art is just awful. And there's 4 more (all late) issues of Yu to go...

    From Powers of X, we see that Magneto was not on board with Moira's game for the longest time, and even Xavier wasn't fully in. So, Krakoa might have been available for a while, it's just the players weren't.

    Yeah, but Krakoa hás Magneto, Exodus, Shaw, Emma, Mystique and freakin' Sinister and Apocalypse. The idea they need X-force because they are too soft makes no sense.

    Busy week. Immortal Hulk had a fantastic issue, pushing the story in a new direction. Daredevil was excellent as usual. New Mutants was solid (the voices for the entire cast are great) and seemingly hints at the return of...someone. Undiscovered Country felt like a poor man's East of West. X-force was just dumb, and requires every character in Krakoa act like an idiot for the plot to work.

    Well, X-men is a rotating roster, so no chance of getting stuck with a cast you think it's boring for too long. I thought Excalibur had potential, and I liked X-men, particularly the idea to begin with the exact opposite of you'd expect from a first issue. I'll give Marauders a shot because they look like they'll move to more interesting things, particularly Emma's story. That said, Psylocke's name change is a cynical move- they finally realized that keeping Betsy in an Asian body doesn't look good, but since the look it's very popular, they gave it and the name to the character that's actually Asian.

    Iceman is openly gay for a while. Pyro is a curious case since he died in the 90's, in the stupid mutant AIDS story, then was used a few years ago because writers and editors forgot that he was dead. Also, pretty much every dead character was resurrected temporarily in Necrosha, so they have an easy out there for everyone.

    I didn't care too much for it, to be honest. Now, Immortal Hulk on the other hand, was crazier than any of the Hickman stuff, and also awesome.

    Moira is, for understandable reasons, terrified of Destiny after the stunt she pulled with Pyro. The only other very powerful precog I remember is Blindfold, and she's also dead (in hindsight, it was clear Matthew Rosenberg had orders to get her off the board, but I doubt he was told to do it in such an offensive fashion). Destiny or another precog would know of Moira's existence and what's she's up to, as well as mutatkind's (so far) inevitable fate. Kid Cable is obviously a dumb idea, but also one that predates Hickman, and Marvel probably didn't imagine the reception to the character would be so poor by the time they got the ball rolling, because of course, they're also the people that thought that kill Cyclops off-panel while calling him the new Hitler would be also pretty neat.

    Destiny is the big Checkov's gun of Hickman's run. Sabretooth will certainly be released later on and cause mayhem.

    Magneto having a God complex and getting very far down his own ass was always a problem, and certainly will be later. Some people also read the Cyclops/Polaris exchange as hinting that they would be in a relationship themselves- while I don't think that's really the case, if true, would certainly add to the theory of Xavier "editing" the X-men to some extent, because of course if there's anyone Magneto would want with his daughter, it would be Scott. While there seems to be some editing with Vulcan (the psychopatic tendencies removed, now he's just as stupid as any other teenage boy), I don't think it's the case with everyone, because it would be a cop out. Far more likely to me would be a civil war breaking out between Moira and Xavier, with Magneto either with him or being on his own side, and the rectangle breaking up because of politics- Scott and Jean most likely being in different sides since that never happened.

    Of course she is. See the look she gives Scott right after Jean gives her the beer- I don't know how people can be so obtuse to miss that Hickman is all but spelling they're sleeping together (then again, there's probably people in denial even after seeing the living arrangements in this issue). Plus, the Sinister Secret #5 from Powers of X. The reason she doesn't have a room there is because she has her own palace in Krakoa, if she's on the Moon, is to sleep with Scott. https://community.cbr.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=88391&stc=1&d=1571319451

    Nobel Literature Prize Speculation 2019 - Tokarczuk and Handke

    Yeah, this does look a little like the controversy regarding Polanski winning the Oscar for the Pianist, except it isn't, because you don't have only other 4 options for specific work in one year, one of them being Rob freakin' Marshall, another Stephen Daldry, and one being Scorsese for a minor work. They had every living writer and playwright to consider, or even pick someone outside the box like they did with Dylan.
