First, like a thing that you throw that always comes back, this Psych Ward about Boomerang cannot be ignored. Or, it could, I guess, but you really shouldn't. Really, really shouldn't. I explored Boomerang's near past and remind you that, joke or not, this guy has straight up killed people, so maybe give him his due. Or, at least, adjust your perspective a bit.

 

Also last week, the X-Men celebrated 50 fantastic years. Yep, 50 fabulous years. 50 festive years. And so on. 

As part of it, Marvel.com named it's 50 Greatest X-Men and I was one of the panelists and writers. You can read my copious contributions in Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5 and mourn with the me that lack of Maggot.

You may have read about the list on the internet where it was hailed as the worst, stupidest, trolliest thing ever. 

There is also this podcast that talks about how the list came to be with several of Marvel's editors, although I'm told I'm not mentioned on it so it probably is not worth your time.
