Last issue Cyclops was pretty firmly set against burning the world and starting over, but this issue he seems to have come around to the idea, and the Phoenix Force’s old genocide itch is acting up again. That means it’s time for the last minute save. Nova is dispatched to bring Dark Cyclops down to earth. Nova tells Cap he’s a hemisphere away, which surely means he’s literally as far away as he could possibly be while still being nominally adjacent to the right planet. But that’s close enough for a member of the Bucket Lantern Corps! And can I say that, Nova, I miss the golden bucket, but I assume the blue bucket represents a different emotion. The gold buckets represented “whimsy” or “exuberance,” and the blue buckets represent “thirsty” or “bergamot.” Those are all emotions, right?
Andrew Wheeler has wrapped up his brilliant Avengers Vs X-Men reports over at ComicsAlliance. I miss them already.
