I’m an endlessly picky and particular comic book fan. I have Ideas and Opinions, and that often means I’ll read fewer books. But, I think, it also means I find some absolute gems in the books I do read. In this case, I want to talk about the “Tomorrow Never Learns” story arc in Wolverine and the X-Men vol. 2.

I read TNL for the first time in early 2015, pretty much as soon as the arc went live on Marvel Unlimited, Marvel’s back-issue e-library subscription service. I was pretty new to comics, and this was the penultimate arc of Wolverine and the X-Men, the first comic book series I ever read the full run of. I absolutely loved characters like Quentin “Kid Omega” Quire, Idie “Oya” Okonkwo, and Evan “Genesis” Sabahnur and their classmates, already, but it was this arc that solidified something for me:

Idie, Evan, and Quentin are a tipping point, not just for the X-Men, not just for mutantkind, but for the X-Men comics themselves, and this is intrinsically linked to the fact that they — all three of them — are in love with each other, or will be by the end of the story.

Well.  That certainly just happened.

My entire body is alight with excitement and I am practically devastated that I have to wait until 2019 to find out what happens next.  Under the cut, I’m gonna talk about some pretty spoiler-y stuff and some Feelings I have, and if you’ve seen the episode already and you know how I tend to react to this stuff, you can pretty much tell what I’m going to talk about.  Head under the cut for all the spoilers, now:

A.K.A. I was right and I’m never going to let the world live it down!!

So last night’s Krypton was possibly the best episode so far. A real roller-coaster of emotions and a “no, wait, what, really?!” moment on one of my pet theories. I am so damn happy about this show, guys. It is so damn perfect for me.

Under the cut, I’m gonna talk about a couple things: 1) the thing I’ve been right about all along, 2) this show’s commitment to Krypton as a planet free from gender/sexuality-based oppression, 3) the Zods, and 4) my sweet boy who is going to probably ruin everything, Adam Strange.
