  1. Or… Instead of resurrecting the greatest evil the world has ever known, they could call the Avengers for some help with this threat. Ah, no, to contact the Avengers you really need an "in". Somebody who is on the team or intimately familiar with it. That sort of thing. Oh well, let’s bring back Dracula instead.

  2. Hahah, JimBilly4, obviously facetious, yea, retarted plan.  Don’t know why Blade wasn’t clawing and scratching to stop them from doing this. 

    I mean this is the one vampire that’s been the scourge of the Earth for centuries, the king of kings of vampires, the very bane of Blade’s existence as a vampire hunter, I would think he would object very strongly to that plan, even going so far as fighting the XMen over it. He just sorta acquiesces without much objection at all, which was not very thoughtful writing to me. And again, you wouldn’t replace an Osama with a Saddam, or a Hitler with a Kim Jong Il, the plan just doesn’t make sense.

  3. @Franktiger: Actually, I think you WOULD replace an Osama with a Saddam. In our world, the later was certainly much easier to deal with! Bet the same would apply for Hitler and Jong II as well.



  4. The lesser of two evils?  No, doesn’t work, add poison to food and the whole thing’s ruined.  They stll tryin to get Osama, and guess Jong Il wouldn’t facilitate a holocaust, but in this case, would Dracula be easier to deal with than his son?  Do they figure they can just kill him again?  Not a practical plan.

  5. yeah, the enemy of my enemy is his father.  no, it doesn’t make sense.  BUT, that’s why it’s going to be such an exciting clusterfuck!

  6. I take that back, Jong-Il facilitates the holocaust of his own people essentially.

  7. The art in this is great though. Yeah the basis of the book may be shakey, but I chose to accept  that premise and the rest of the journey I have liked.

  8. That´s right the art is great, but i kind of miss an old good morrison´s x-men story don´t you?

  9. I feel like there is something more to Cyclops’ plan than he’s letting on. I don’t think it’s as simple as bringing Dracula back to kill Xarus. The real plan, I think, is to send Wolverine under cover to take them down from the inside. I think Dracula is just a pawn here.

  10. @fatherjeff: I like that Wolverine theory, seeing as his healing factor is going to kick in at some point a la when he got infected by the Brood not once, but twice.

  11. If his healing factor ‘kicks in’ like delayed-response kind of thing and gets rid of the vampirism all of a sudden after its clearly been established, I think that’d be a weak cop-out.

  12. Someone suggested that the injection Logan secretly got was actually a response to the vampirism bombers. Frankly, if that’s the case, if Scott’s plan is to blow up Wolverine to shower all vampires near him with a cure… that’d be kind of awesome.
