Super Fail #3 - Kitty loses her ghetto pass

I've changed the name of this ongoing experiment, it was intended to focus on the insane things that Professor Charles Xavier use to profess but now I noticed that it's the entire comics universe that has lost it's freaking mind.

Here we have a young mutant named Katherine Pryde who's had her share of bigotry and hate thrown her way for being born a mutant in the marvel universe ( and a Jewish one at that ) you would think this would make the character a little sensitive to slang and taboo words being used at inappropriate moments (like when your surrounded by suspicious classmates looking to do some mutant bashing on campus)

So what does she do? Does she use her powers to escape? Does she summon the Xavier through that psychic rapport he shares with all his X-men?

No, she uses the N-word.

And by the look on Phil's face, he doesn't give a rats as is she is a mutant she's lost her ghetto pass for life.

If you haven't read Uncanny X-men # 196, it ends with Phil choking the shit out of Kitty Pryde and Wolverine having to beat him off her.

GRANDAIZA PRESENTS : Bandai Soul of Chogokin GX-02R Great Mazinger

Here's a nifty little piece from my collection that I thought I'd share with you all, One of the all time classics designed by super robot legend Go Nagai and given form by the masters over at Bandai The SOUL OF CHOGOKIN GX-02R GREAT MAZINGER.

One of my all time favorite robot designs, this baby looks like it just jumped out of the TV screen.

This guys chest, torso, waist, arms from the shoulder to elbow & Legs from hip to knee are made out of die-cast making this one hefty robot.


Double driller flying fist!

Here's a nifty little backpack that shows his jet pack in non flight mode.

Bazow! ready for take off!!

(notice the little leg fins on his heel that pop out for flight mode)

A little flexing before take-off. The backpack adds a heft and color to the whole design.

(I love the flaring forearms and hips, early 80's robot chick)

Here's his long range space "scrander" for off world missons.

(Slightly bigger that the jet scrander it has a neat 60's jet plane look)

Ready for takeoff.

Here he is on his stand with all of his bits and pieces

(minus the space pack to give you a better view )

He actually came with Two swords, one of which I game to Mazinger Z.

If you collect any sort of die-cast super robots, this bad boy should be one of the linchpins in your collection.

Next week we'll feature the SOUL OF CHOGOKIN GX-41 RAIDEEN.

Super Fail #2 - Chuck hates on Scott

And we,re back with another one of the great professors note wothy moments.

When Professor X learns that his precious X-men may have died in Antarctica at the hands of Magneto ( issue # 114 ) what does he do?

He flies off into space for about #15 issues with his new girlie, Lilandra vacationing across the universe with his alien hottie.

During this time the X-men Save the savage land, defeat Proteus one of the most dangerous mutants alive that no one knew about (thanks for the heads up Chuck ) Save Japan, beat Alpha Flight and Arcade.

Finally good ole Chuck comes back ( issue # 129 ) I'm guessing Lilandra finally realized how annoying he was and just dumped him back on Earth.

Now the Professors back and all is well, until he begins taking out his inadequacies on the X-men.

Okay, we all agree the wolverine was a douche early on in Uncanny and probably deserved that, lets continue...

You're dogging your best student and leader of your team for taking care of business while you were away? Your a class act Charles.
