Attention all humans and human sympathizers. You are now about to witness the dawning of the mutant revolution!

Courtesy of KID OMEGA.



My name is Quentin Quire, mutant freedom fighter and future leader of the X-Men! I have come here today not to bury humankind but to merely make them wish that they were dead.

No more will we, your superiors in every conceivable way, allow you and your pathetic politicians to wallow in lies like pigs in excrement.

This time around, the revolution will not be televised. The revolution will be telepathic.

I won't lie to you, ladies and gentlemen, this is going to hurt.

The truth always does.

probably the closest we’ll ever get to seeing the real Jean again

welcome to the world of bendis

Anonymous whispered: Do you have any advice for a tentative kid omega rper?

Let loose all your inhibitions. I know it’s hard.

You have to put him into perspective.

This kid was bullied, relentlessly throughout his childhood, and has had virtually no friends for the entirety of his life. The only person who ever hung around him was Glob Herman, who was only around because he was the only person who tolerated his presence. 

He has been kicked around, stepped on, and ignored. He has made some very, very grave mistakes…

But now he’s back. Reborn, if you will. And he’s angry.

Because now, he refuses to be ignored. He refuses to be forgotten again.

It’s not just for him, though, it’s for all the other mutants who get tossed around in society.

He has the power to change the world, and he is going to do it. It’s just figuring out how.

Be loud. You don’t have to be 100% confident—Quentin sure as hell isn’t.

But he tries. And successful or not, it doesn’t matter, because it’s a learning experience. And it got him farther than he would have if he had done nothing.

TL;DR 

Embrace the hurt people have caused you and turn it into anger. Embrace awkward interactions and social ineptness and channel them into Quentin.

But most importantly, try, learn, and be the sassy little shit you were born to be.

Anonymous whispered: Do you know any good Quentin Quire comics?

I do!

My favorite ones are 

  • Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha and Omega
  • New X-Men #134-138 (Riot at Xavier’s, Quentin’s debut—tw: drug abuse)
  • Nation X
  • Schism
  • Endsong
  • Age of Apocalypse #5 or 6 (I absolutely adore this AU Quentin and the way he was drawn, can’t remember which issue it was exactly. But also—tw: suicide)
  • New X-Men Academy X #16 (tw: suicide)
  • Wolverine and the X-Men #1-11 (I feel like it went downhill once AvX started, personally)
  • A+X #4 and 9
  • Exiles: Days of Then and Now (tw: drug abuse)

 He has also been in Deadpool, apparently? I haven’t read it, though (I haven’t read any comics in a really long time.)

He hasn’t been in a ton of things, but I really enjoy the older ones the most (even though I was introduced to him through WatXM.)

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the LOVE statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  In this event, artist activists staged a scene where Kieth A. Wallace, an Actor, pretended to be dead for an hour in front of the statue while others took turns holding a sign with “Call Us By Our Names” written on it.  

To see more photos from this performance, check out #CallUsByOurNames on Facebook. 

I am not a journalist, I am merely a friend of the artists involved.  I was not at this event.      

As the photos show, the social experiment and silent protest highlighted the peoples reaction in the foreground of the photo. In this context the people become the performance art, and the faux dead body becomes a backdrop.  As an artist, I don’t want to give you my interpretation of the art of these photos. They should speak for themselves.  But I did talk to Lee Edward Colston II, an actor, who was involved in the event.  

Here are some of his observations of the social interactions he witnessed: 

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’
