Can we talk for a minute about the Siege Perilous? This thing just confuses the heck out of me. First of all, the Siege Perilous is a chair. Merlin created it for the knight destined to find the Grail. Anyone else who sat in it would die. When Galahad joined the Knights of the Round Table, the Siege wrote his name on its back. Nothing about reincarnation. Nothing about it being a door or a jewel. But, fine. Different artifact with the same name. Or the legend got it wrong or something. Why the door is called a chair is beyond me, but... Fine. When it's given to them in issue 227, Roma explains it to them. She offers it as an escape hatch from the difficult life of being superheroes. You go through, the good and evil of your life and soul are judged by mysterious karmic forces of the universe, and then you're reborn. So, basically, Buddhist reincarnation. They send the Reavers through, because the X-men don't know what else to do with them, but the Reavers just show up again the same as before. Still cyborgs, memories intact, nothing different, no sign of having judged. Storm goes through and wakes up a child. Colossus and Dazzler are essentially just teleported and mindwiped. Dazzler wakes up right back in her old life, just with no memory of it. They all keep their powers, including being invisible to electronics. They're not reborn at all. So not only does it have nothing to do with the name, it doesn't even follow its own rules, and it's not even consistent about that. Oh, yeah, and then this ancient, powerful mystic artifact is nonchalantly crushed to dust one-handed. What about any of this makes any sense?
