I Love Everything About the Hellfire Gala!

The build-up to the Hellfire Gala on Krakoa kicked off this week with the release of a guide book, showing off everybody’s outfits and giving us a rundown of what to expect. We’ve known about this gala for a while now, and we’ve seen a lot of the outfits, and I just wanted to gush about how much I love this whole dang thing!

The X-Men hosting their own version of the Met Gala, complete with ludicrous outfits, is everything I want from X-Men comics right now.

The Dawn of X/Reign of X era has been largely hit and miss for me so far. I love the idea in general, of mutants living on Krakoa and pushing this ‘nation’ idea to its fullest. I love the good mutants and evil mutants living together in harmony. I’m perfectly happy with the resurrection stuff. I absolutely love the Crucible and all the thought behind it. I’m excited to see what Nightcrawler explores in the new Way of X series. I’m chomping at the bit for a business-focused series with X-Corp.

And I love the idea that Jumbo Carnation came back to life so that he could design insane but gorgeous gala outfits for everybody for a big crazy party! Just look at this outfits!

And even my boy Multiple Man gets an outfit! From what little we’ve glimpsed so far, it looked as if Madrox was going to be wearing his old costume to serve as waiter. But the new guidebook finally unveiled his fancy look!

Not just Multiple Man, but everybody is getting a look!

And I just want to show them off! I’m loving this whole thing, I’m loving these outfits. I only wish Marvel and their artists had time to go through and give a fancy outfit to every single freakin’ mutant that ever lived!

Where’s the Maggott design?! Give us a Maggott outfit!

But I digress. I just wanted to gush about my excitement for the Hellfire Gala and the lengths Marvel has gone to for all these beautiful outfits. And that’s to say nothing about the idea of electing the members of Krakoa’s first official team of X-Men! I love that idea as well.

Can’t wait for this whole big party to begin!

  1. In addition to being a huge fan of the X-Men, you are a huge fan of exclamation points.

    • I think it’s just a tic I’ve picked up, cause I use them a lot when chatting with other people via text. I don’t use it to express exclamation so much as to express energy and excitement behind what I’m saying. They’re just more fun.

      • Okay. When you put it that way it makes sense. It’s less annoying to me when reading it as just a text conversation rather than as a professional review.

        Don’t let me dampen your enthusiasm. I’m persnickety about writing sometimes, and take things to seriously.
