"Callout."


With Wolverine "dead," Marvel seems to be pushing Sabretooth really, really hard: it's kinda like when Taco Bell has shrimp tacos. You're not sure why this is happening--the end of shrimp season? Some sort of die-off? Cleaning out the nation's freezer? But the Bell somehow presents it as a special event, and you know it was never meant to last, even if against all odds it somehow become really popular. I had Taco Bell the other day and was lamenting my beloved Beefy Crunch Burritos--the ones with the weird red Fritos that I don't think I've ever eaten outside of a burrito--which may explain today's metaphor. The why of it, anyway.

And now I'm hungry. Swell. Continued next week with an unexpected guest-star...that we've seen already.

That's basically the reaction they should all have anytime anyone really popular like a Wolverine or Cap dies; everybody knows it won't last, so what's the point in boo hooing?
I say they should all treat it as a much needed and deserved vacation. It's not like there's any drama there anyways...

Heh. The perfect reaction. And by the time Deadpool and Kurt get back from Space, well, I imagine that Wolverine will be alive again anyway!

Taco Bell sells shrimp tacos? I do occasionally enjoy shrimp, but I don't think I'm trusting seafood from Taco Bell.

Siryn basically had that reaction to her dad's death, didn't she? I always enjoyed that, even if it was later presented as her basically being in denial (understandably).
