  1. The Comic Book Clergyman. Freakin’ comedic gold!

    Great show dudes. Keep it up.

  2. Jeff- I’m surprised you didn’t bring up the X-Men scene in Iron Man 2.0 #1. It’s “Cerebra” not “Cerebro,” Cyclops is shown using the machine (it’s always used by telepaths only), and there’s no way Cyke lets the FBI on Utopia 4x a year. No way.


  3. I thought Scott was just sitting at the machine looking annoyed. And I don’t see it as Scott not letting the FBI in to take a look at Cerebra. He’s going to give the illusion that he’s “playing ball” and that the X-Men are not a threat so if it takes the FBI looking at Cerebra a few times a year then so be it. It’s not like Scott is going to show them his entire hand anyway. That’s why I didn’t have an issue with that scene and didn’t think it was a stretch.

  4. Well, they had mentioned “Cerebro” in the caption, so I assumed that’s where he was sitting. It looked like it to me.

    I only bend to you on the playing ball point because of the whole “Serve and Protect” thing that’s going on right now, and how Scott wants to clean up the X-Men’s image in the public eye. So good call there. But if this came out after Utopia, I wouldn’t buy it.

    But it has been CerebrA for years now. Marvel editorial fubar’ed on that one.
