  1. Yeah, I got stuck in the PDX December Snowpocalypse 2016. Because of a switching issue on the MAX, I had the bright idea to take the 96 to get to points south, not realizing that the snow routes for the 96 go on Barbur. It took 5 hours to get to Tualatin. I also had friends out in Clackamas who had a 9 hour commute home. Jay and Miles are not kidding about the metro area not having the infrastructure for this kind of snow, especially when it shows up in the afternoon and thus hits hardest during rush hour, instead of early in the day or overnight when traffic is lighter.

  2. Wolverine is still good. It does occur to me that this issue was almost filler, but it does a good enough job that it’s easy to overlook. I love the twist that Captain Ash is as bad as pirates are supposed to be. And I am really excited for the rest of the arc.

    IvX was pretty good. Some great Emma stuff, no doubt. And Magneto’s line about “My people will not be gassed to death” was really strong.

    ANXM is still really good. I love this happy Goblin Queen. I do wish there had been a moment between her and Scott, even if it was just her seeing him and laughing without explanation.

    Logan was good. Just a good, silly change of pace issue. Largely forgettable, but no less enjoyable for that.

  3. You’re not wrong – Orrgo is amazing. Honestly, I really liked Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D. and was really happy to see them return after cancellation in OML.

    Orrgo’s also a great cover monster. See Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 and Defenders vol 2 #10.

    I really like Orrgo.

  4. When I saw Dazzler “the Inhuman” sings it the club I imagined she sang: “Are we Inhumans or are we Dancers?”

    I know it’s stupid.

  5. Great video, guys! I’ve been reading Uncanny Inhumans since it started, and I’m pretty sure that’s what Black Bolt normally wears to the Quiet Room. It felt normal to me, anyway. Just FYI.

  6. Two things:

    1) I normally don’t comment on personal appearance in these videos since that’s not the point, but Jay, your hair looks really good like that. Enjoying the swoopiness.

    2) I really loved IvX. I got super giddy when the plan started to come together.
