In the Name of X

Le X-Men #1 de Brian Wood et Olivier Coipel a déjà suscité louanges et  hommages parmi les amateurs de comics, et il y en a bien évidemment qui sortent du lot, comme cette chanson d’Adam WarRock, un rap intitulé comme de juste X-Women et dont les paroles sont absolument parfaites et très inspirées.

Where the ladies at, where the ladies at
With that X on your chest, come and save me fast
I’m just a mutant trying to find my way home
Ain’t a man in Utopia could do it alone

verse 1:
Man I got Hope for the future, in the middle of a Storm
Let the Siryns ring, cuz now it’s time to get it on, yo
Ashes to ashes, Dust to dust
Like a cat in the shadows, cuz I’m steady on the cusp…

And I don’t have to Dazzle her, with that Emma Frost bling
Ain’t no manic Pixie dream girl, in here where I bring
These are superheroes, No-girl would be a Wallflower
When the Brotherhood’s trying to take your mindpower

Pyslocked on that Boom Boom on the track
With a Blindfold I’m seeing you, ain’t no turning back
Ask me how I know her so well, I play for rilla
I tell that I just know stuff, Layla Miller

I see past the Husk of your Skin, past the phonies
Even if it’s between Celeste, Esme, Irma, and Sophie
Phoebe too, know I don’t forget you
That’s the Magik of the better halves, this one’s for you


verse 2:
You say Karma’s a bitch, well I say that’s my homegirl
An equal with a destiny beyond what we know though,
You got Malice in your heart, cuz the fanboys hate
Heating up like Magma, you think you can’t relate

I feel that push pull push like Polaris when I’m near to ya
Seeing every character Ariel to Valeria
Silver Fox in my old age,
and man I think I’m in a Trance like the older that I get these days

When the Mercury’s rising, I want ‘em all Ruby Summers
Through the Marrow, pierced my Armor, I’m a Rogue for all your lovin’
But you say you got no time for that
Princess is too powerful, she got a job that

Keeps her occupied late in the night, my lovely Dragoness
You’re a Cipher to the heavens, with that X that you bless
And I don’t mind that I’m a fool so let’s see
That my favorite X-Man growing up was Jubilee


verse 3:
Checking my Kitty Pryde, like a Phoenix I’m trying to rise
Above all the comments in the negative zone
Go ask my mother if y’all wanna real life
Example of a hero that raised me and taught me back at home

That we treat people as equals, judge them by their character
Judge them by their actions, mutant boy or girl,
And though this world isn’t fair, try our best to make a difference
For those Jean Greys living in a Scott Summers world

Go head and give me that team, Wakanda queen
Besty Braddock, Rogue, Rachel, Psylocke and Jubilee
In the garage, you know it’s waiting for me
Kitty Pryde, on a poster, where I used to just dream

This one’s for all the x-women forgotten in
the archives of time, know i never stopped wishing
For that new team edition, hip hop and you don’t stop
From home of the Morlocks, to the top of Storm’s mohawk
