im just rereading the last volume of new x men, and i realise, planet x works surprisingly well as a piece of comedy
from nobody giving a shit about magneto, the need to impress the crowd, magneto having to turn off the TV's to get their attention. The clincher was when Beak mentioned Nazis, the men who killed magneto's family, all he could say was "Nazi? do i look like a failed artist wit a neurotic obsession with my father?"
its pretty damn hilarious
Then we get the part where Magneto writes essays about how humans cant feel pain, Beak says even the carrot's (a fruit) can feel pain, then magneto bitch slaps him while shouting "VEGETABLE"
Brilliant parody of x men comics
