Thanks Ritter, I did, and #221 also (first comics I bought in years). IDK, it seems like by now the character would have already matured past some of the stuff she was saying. Especially considering she kind of dated a techno-organic alien. And many other things. Almost everyone with a fundamentalist background eventually expands their scope of belief, and particularly those who observe a broad array of human cultures and experiences, as Rahne has. To hear her ask Ric "did I turn you gay," and some of the other stuff just doesn't work for me. No matter how black and white your foundation was, almost everybody gains a healthy dose of gray along the way. On the other hand, Marvel time is much slower than real time, I guess. She's supposed to still be 19 or 20 I think. What'd make a lot more sense to me is if the thing she is struggling with is the concept of having the child of a pagan god inside of her; how exactly in Rahne's belief system do the Asgardians fit in, if at all? There's the whole faith vs. sight thing, etc.

I'm ready to see exactly how the whole baby thing plays out, and it's good that PAD has Rahne again but otherwise still not enjoying comics these days. Wish I was. :(

Wolfsbane from the 80's, or hell, even the 90's X-Factor would have given up her kid to have all her sins absolved in my mind.

I bought a ton of comics over the years, but had to drop everything a few years ago when the economy crashed (my job is related to cars, so I didn't have expendable cash anymore) X-Factor is the ONLY comic I never stopped getting, I just really liked the charactor interactions.

Being a fan of Wolfsbane, and "Werewolves" in general, I have to say I'm pretty excited about some of the covers and synopses I've seen for the next three issues.

I just wish they'd go more into Hrimhari's story. He's the "wolf prince" so since he's not the "wolf king" that must mean his mom or dad is still around as the "Wolf Queen" or "Wolf King", yeah?

But I think it's been expressed that Hrimhari is the one in charge of the wolves on Asgard, so is it like, his mom is still around, but he calls all the shots, and wouldn't the rest of the wolves want to find out what's going on with their new heir to the throne of the wolves, or if Hrimhari was the only one, it would end up being the current ruler after it's born and grows up, right?

And if Hrimhari is buddies with the Warriors Three, where the fuck are they? Isn't anyone on Asgard going to go help, when all these other gods and demons are attacking? When is Thor going to show up and start smiting these guys?

I don't even know how it got to this point in the first place, it's like the X-Force guys were like "lets put Wolfsbane through all the worst stuff we can think of" but they didn't bother worrying about how to fix any of it, cause they were going to dump her off on someone else. Maybe that's not what happened, but that's how it seems.

The whole Douglock relationship was creepy, but not as much as the one she had with Elixer. I mean, that kid (to me, maybe I'm wrong) looked like Doug. Moonstar or Karma never once pointed out, "hey this student you are having an affair with looks just like your dead boyfriend!"?

Also I have a feeling Ric is going to end up dead within the next four issues.. :(
