AvX: What Am I Even Reading?

I’m just going to be honest. I really did not intend to read this because I didn’t want to read another wash, rinse, repeat story about anything dealing with Phoenix. I’m over that, but I was interested to see how this annulment business came about with Storm and Black Panther, and I wanted the full context. To be clear, I’ve always thought that was a couple that came into fruition because, hey, they are both black and African—totally legit reasons for making them hookup. Amirite? They went through such lengths to give them a shared background rather than building up to a meaningful relationship between the two. Now, they don’t seem to know what to do with them together.

What I left with after nine issues and reading some of the tie-in stories is a sour taste in my mouth concerning so many things in this event. I’m not even going to get started on all my Storm feelings right now because this would just make this even longer than it already is, but I’m sure I’ll find some time to scream about it later in its own post once I read more of this. So, I’ll gloss over some (read: not all) of the things that have annoyed me.

There aren't really any spoilers from this point, but this is long.

This blog is a mishmash of thoughts, pictures, and rantings among other things about games I've played, games I will play, and games I am currently playing. From time to time, I may post book reviews that I've written that are about different games and/or game worlds. Feel free to recommend games or add me on the platforms I've listed. I don't do competitive multiplayer much anymore, but I'm always down for some co-op these days. I'm usually DigitalTempest everywhere unless otherwise specified.
