I love the X-Men. But honestly superheroing is not actually a practical way to make the world hate and fear you less. This is the X-Men team I never knew I always wanted, a group of people trying to save the world with compassion and truth rather than punching. Yes, some punching happens, but it is never presented as a solution to their problems.

 

Plus, they reprogram a mutant-hunting sentinel robot and paint rainbows on it. What's not to love?

A fun story about two smart girls in their space station home with their three-headed kitten named Princess, Sparkle, and Destroyer of Worlds. What's not to love? I really enjoyed the relationship treatment in the story, both with the girls' friendship, their familial relationships, and the relationships amongst coworkers on the station.
