Mutant Buffet Monday!

I haven't seen Dark Knight yet. Heck, I haven't seen a comic movie since Ghost Rider, so don't ruin anything for me. I'm strictly a dollar movie guy, and I'm waiting for Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk to get there. Intern Kathryn, referred now and forevermore as my Minion Kathryn, actually had a free ticket to the IMAX showing of Dark Knight over the weekend and hogged it for herself, so applications will soon be accepted for a new Minion. Glad to hear it was awesome, though. Hope it hits the dollar before Christmas!

You know what I did see, though? Uncanny X-Men #6:

Heaven forbid you need a condiment at the dinner table of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters:

Yes, the same beam that Cyclops uses on the Juggernaut will be used to cripple you if you reach for the Sweet-N-Low. Go for the artificial sweetener, and expect to pull back a bloody stump. Why the Beast didn't beat the wahjeebus out of Scott remains a mystery to this day.

Hmmmmmm.... no, Bobby, I think you're going to end up with a soggy piece of pie. With freezer burn. If there's any flavoring to the ice you generate, I'm bettin' it ain't vanilla beans!

Heh.... that was kinda gross....

Of course, if you have the power of magnetism, you automatically have the ability to create an astral consciousness of yourself. The two powers are totally related. Yup. Can't have one without the other. That's why I never sleep with a magnet in the room. I'm afraid the magnet will project its ghost self and try to eat me or something.

Yeah, Professor! You go on ahead! We have plenty of tests to keep us busy!

You just know Warren, Bobby and Hank seized the moment to cut out and smoke weed by the tennis court...

I hate it when comic writers suddenly give powers to superheros that they aren't supposed to have.
Case in point: Superman II the movie. "I know... I'll throw a plastic version of my "S" at him! AH-HA!"

When Iceman farts, does a cloud of steam come out like when you breathe out on a really cold day?

Why does the Marvel universe have two (2) scientific geniuses called Hank?

That power could inspire a whole storyline: Uncanny X-Men - Day of the Bake Sale.
