As some of our beloved pop icons die, a "quintessential" D (Z?) lister walks through limbo's door (literally).
Yes....Ariel...the extraterrestrial mutant from a planet called The Coconut Grove (not kidding) with vague "suggestion" powers, not to mention teleporting through existing doors, has made quite the return.
Who would have thought that a character who previously teamed up with Devil Dinosaur, Moon Boy, and two cybernetic lobsters would get a snazzy appearance under Mike Carey's pen!
What an appearance it was. The lady oozed style, wit, sass, and radiance in one page!
This fashion-stallion says the clothes were top-notch.
Moments like these justify the very existence of us D-List Lovers.
What is in the cards for the lovely Ariel?
A spot on the gay league? She'd look damn wonderful next to Dazzler, Northstar, Greymalkin, Pixie, and Anole. She'd outshine that other salmon-scalp by far.
Or, should she join and replace Beast on the fabled PR team with Storm, Dazzler, and Northstar? She isn't as established as them, but she would take Beast's place! That outbreak never would have happened if the public saw a gorgeous pink-haired alien instead of an overgrown feline.
i sense that Storm, Dazzler, and Northstar would dig Ariel.
A Fallen Angels reunion with Sunspot, Warlock, Boom Boom, and Vanisher? It would be a stylish combo.
Or, should Greg Land trace her double-helix?
In the tradition of Storm, Dazzler, Psylocke, Sage, and others......i believe that, thanks to the wonderful Mike Carey, another fierce dame is born.
i'm off to scrub my double helix.
