"Why is the Sky Blue? (and other questions kids ask their parents)" (1996/01/01) from Captain Marvel 2 (January 1996)
Reader Rating: Average; Thunderbolts Interest: Medium
Summary: Genis makes his first visit to Earth, where he makes a sensational appearance on Rick and Marlo Jones' talk show and visits the site of his father's death. On the way Genis stops by Titan, where he chats with Mentor, Eros, Elysius and Moondragon. Monica Rambeau makes an amusing cameo appearance.
Continuity: Genis meets Rick and visits Earth for the first time. Subplots brew placing Genis in the middle of political maneuvering between the Kree, the Shi'ar and some group called the Crystal Claws. For purposes of T-Bolts continuity, they can be ignored (pages 15 and 28).
Comments: Genis goes through a bunch of soul searching, none of which rings true to me. The unpleasant art is a poor rip-off of Rob Leifield's mouth-wide-open-and-spewing-saliva style, and the villainous machinations are singularly uninteresting.
