I suspect that at some point she'll snap, out of frustration, and say something to the younger Bobby to make him realize how much of an immature asshole he is as an adult. That may get conveyed back to the older Bobby, which may change his demeanor for the better, or at least get him and Kitty talking to better their relationship... I hope.

    Yeah, I think I like your interpretation better than what I assume was meant by the scene. Running with it until I read otherwise. And yes, let the mocking recommence!

    On another note: I just realized that I would be totally prejudiced against certain types of mutants. Telepaths and shape-shifters would creep me out. Mind-thieves and shifty deceivers, all of them. (Irony intended)

    You wanna know the really bad news? Because the money was placed in the safety deposit box, it was not able to accrue interest. So, unless Scott has been making additional deposits over the years, he has actually gotten poorer due to inflation:

    Assuming that he joined the X-Men around 15 years ago, $100,000 would have the same buying power as about $141,000 today.
    Still, could be worse...
    When X-Men first hit the shelves in 1963, $100,000 would have the same buying power as around $750,000 today.

    He would of been better off investing it in hookers and blow.

    Wait, maybe that somehow explains his relationship with Emma.

    Unless you know the government were to accuse him of crimes against humanity and seize his assets or something. Stuff in a safe deposit box isn't an investment, its insurance. Investments make you money, insurance cost you money. You need both.

    Agreed that it's because most bank institutions would rather not advertise a mutant let alone public mutant enemy number one visited the premises. That being said were talking about a group that has more than one mind reader yet somehow the writers ignore that and make them suffer mutiple betrayal attempts. Sometimes from their own teammates. You would think that they would be prepared. Nope comes across as a Luke finding out Darth Vader is his father moment.

    With Mystique more than likely being around the 05 in disguise makes me wonder if they plan to do anything with Iceman and Mystique. After rereading the X-men manifest destiny trade he did not seem to angry at having been thrown out of a exploding plane, poisoned and pretty much having been screwed over by Mystique. Bendis will probably not use that but who knows. Makes a interesting and sick love traingle between Mystique, Kitty and Iceman.

    Wouldn't Cable's birth certificate have been in that box though. I mean to me that seemed like something that would have been in that box. Thats the one thing i thought was really missing in this issue.

    Cable was born on the kitchen floor of the mansion, not a hospital. Then Sinister erased all traces of the baby's existence circa X-Factor 12.

    True and good point about Sinster taking back Gambit as a Marauder in the MC. Except Mystique unlike Gambit did not kill him off and attacked off guard and from behind to boot. Notice also that unlike Gambit who may say is "free of Sinster" after Sinster dies in MC he does nothing really to be free of him. Mystique actually did all the dirty work. I'm not saying they will never ever work toghether. Yet I would expect him to get some sort of revenge or at the very least betray her at the moment she needs help the most imo. With coming close to as a actual true death in AVX I would be surprised if he wanted someone so untrustworthy and manipulative anywhere near him. At least for now. And as for plain revenge why not. I actually would like to see sinster get some sort of revenge. More belivalbe imo.

    Ok, so maybe not a birth certificate, but i still think there would have been something about his kid in there.

    Present Day Cyclops has hardly said 10 words to his daughter since she found her way back from outer space.

    In his defense, she's a future-baby from an unconfirmed timeline. At least Nathan is 100% confirmed to be his.
