[Astonishing X-Men] #17

Finishing my Portrait of the Artist assignment meant I could read the new Astonishing (which I bought on Thursday).

I'm not sure that actually counts as a reward.

Okay, Kitty's brainwashed to think she has a son with Piotr.  I'm not really a fan of the fetishization of MommyLove, though I do validate it as an idea to plant in Kitty's head to get her to retrieve the contents of the box.  (And what's up with this "year and a half in a box" thing?  I get that the timeline matches up with how long she thinks she's had this son, so I guess it's a sort of two-layered brainwash narrative, but it still throws me -- though of course I get the feeling that this entire issue is supposed to make me feel that way.)
Sidenote: The whole "five hundred and forty-seven times" bit is so reminiscent of "Afterlife" (which actually, looking it up to confirm I had the correct episode, is "Hundred forty-seven days yesterday").

Lockheed is the mole?!  Not fair.  Though given that I'm sympathetic to Brand, this could still play out in a way I don't hate.

And I may have jibbered a bit at the end.
