ASTONISHING X-MEN (2004) (#1-68) (MARVEL)(JOSS WHENDON) #10 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Astonishing X-Men (2004) #10
Written by Joss Whedon and drawn by John Cassaday. One can almost forgive the Danger Room for merely carrying out to its logical conclusion what's it was built to do: destroy the X-Men. But when Professor X improved the X-Men's training room by adding sentient Shi'ar technology, he couldn't conceive that the Danger Room would one day act independently to strike out at his young charges. Now Cyclops, Emma Frost, the Beast, Colossus, Wolverine and Shadowcat are fighting for their lives against a computer mind capable of creating any hazard it can imagine and anticipating and countermanding their every move. The hours they've spent training in the Danger Room now work against them as the sentient enemy maps out their next moves before they even make them.

Taking physical form as a sort of transmorphic version of Fritz Lang's robotic woman from Metropolis, the Danger Room engages all six mutants at once. She turns Cyclops ruby eye beams back on all of them, uses Wolverine's charge to neutralize Emma Frost, and is just seconds away from destroying the X-Men with their own powers. But then the mutant heroes change up their tactics, act creatively - even irrationally - to confuse their attacker. It nearly succeeds but their best efforts can't overcome the Danger Room's ability to analyze, adapt and counteract. Inevitably, they all lie in defeat and the monstrous combination of Earth and Shi'ar science seeks out its creator, Charles Xavier, for a final confrontation!
