Trickle of Consciousness
I generally expected that I'd had all the new Power Pack comics I was going to get for the next 5 or so years, but Marvel seems to have liked the performance of Marc Sumerak and Giruhiru's Power Pack mini enough to give the team a second go-'round. This time, with added X-Men.

Of course, I've got that cynical "The X-Men are horribly over-exposed" thing going on in the back of my head, but I can't really argue that an X-Men / Power Pack team-up doesn't make sense. I mean, it's happened before, complete with Wolverine displaying his babysitting skills, so there's certainly precedent.

I do find it interesting that Sumerak mentions this mini, like the previous, will be stand-alone stories. So, it's not "The X-Men and Power Pack team up to stop a single, giant menace," so much as Power Pack teaming up with different X-Men in each story. I have no idea how that'll actually play in production. The first mini used individual Power kids to differentiate its tone and explore different aspects of the kids' lives. This one might take advantage of the varying focuses of their X-stars for the same thing.

Too bad Northstar's an evil zombie now. I'd have gotten a kick out of seeing he and Julie in a race.
