    Only seen it a few times to be honest (Avengers Academy, X-Factor, Uncanny X-Men (THE PROLETARIAT!!!), X-Men Evolution, Ultimate Alliance). Most times, it's elaborate death traps and robots/mechanisms, IE: very physical stuff.

    But VR (IE: Matrix style simulations) is not something I would put past Arcade and it would explain a lot of the inconsistencies/odd things seen so far and provide a lot mote intelligent resolution than other example resolutions.

    I'd imagine the game part comes next, as Arcade mentioned.

    It's rather obvious, but again, that doesn't really counter my point.

    He was, yes. He went to a church looking for Idie, as I recall.

    The only other time I can think of that a JGS school kid was attacked was also off campus (Evan while in Genosha).

    The only time someone's actually managed to get into the JGS was that alien who wanted to kill Broo and the second he got in, the school went into panic room mode.

    Yeah, a really crappy one. Deadpool did something like this a few years ago; his cred as a mercenary was taking a hit, so he took on a free job against a tough opponent to rebuild some credibility.

    I expect, based on remarks from Arcade, that this is Arcade trying to build some credibility back. Has he ever actually succeeded in killing a superhero before? If you're running a business and you never once accomplish your business model, people are going to stop going through you. In all likelihood, this is an attempt to build up some credibility again. I mean, he just kidnapped a bunch of kids out from under the Avengers' noses and is now having them kill each other.

    You've decided to re-write the scene for yourself. I have no interest in countering that. I'm just saying the game is coming.

    I'm glad X-23 made it to day 29 and most likely will be the lone survivor and does some crap to reverse all deaths and save all those who died, honestly after 1 issue, and I'm a HUGE Laura fan, but I think I'll just wait for the trade since this book seems to be one of those that get reset at the end... or worst this is just another Spider-Man One More Day

    And I'm saying the 'Starting gun" could have been done a lot better. They don't match at all. Your comment was irrelevant. Saying "But it's the starting gun!" doesn't change the fact that it's a bad starting gun.

    The TV tropes page on is shows how tired most of the plotting is.

    I think that from m now on if it is a tired b-movie trope that is what will be the most accurate guide to what comes next

    Wow, ok. This just...wasn't good. The story doesn't have a good premise (Arcade read The Hunger Games in prison so he makes his own, really?), everyone sounds off...none of this makes any sense.

    The only saving grace is that Arcade looks good, but the dude's always been a joke...where is this coming from? It's like asking me to take Stilt-Man seriously.
