Selected awesomeness from Excalibur: The Sword Is Drawn
So as part of Excalibur Redux, I'm giving Excalibur a read. Here's some Nightcrawler awesomeness and other random love from the graphic novel that introduced the team, "The Sword Is Drawn". It's got absolutely beautiful Alan Davis art and that classic Claremont crack.
How cracky, you ask? Orgasm is a superpower.
Finfriends? D'awww. How could anyone ever be mean to Meggan, Captain Britain?
D'oh, Kitty, you're such a baby dyke.
So, like I mentioned, Captain Britain called Meggan a cow, which he really shouldn't do even if she has literally transformed into a cow, because he's having an emo-ergency about his sister being dead (the X-Men faked their deaths and I guess decided "sorry, loved ones, you can't know we're still alive". Wonder who came up with that dickish idea, Cyclops?).
It doesn't go over too well.
I'm surprised Kurt heard Captain Britain's "sainted devils!" spiel OVER THE SOUND OF HOW AWESOME HE WAS.
Captain Britain gets over his douchiness and helps the team out against Mojo's warwolves and a bunch of extradimensional badasses who want to stop Rachel "Baby Phoenix" Summers (again, one of whom has THE POWER OF ORGASM). CANZ IT BE HUGS TIEM NAO?
IT CAN! CANZ IT BE THREESOME TIEM NAO?
So they reminisce over the X-Men...
And after an uber-cheesy Rachel-retrospective about King Arthur, they decide to be a team. Group shot for the end of the credits aaaand... scene!
Oh, and don't worry about the length, the graphic novel is fifty pages long.
