    Waitaminnit - Externals are a subspecies of mutants? Not an offshoot of homo sapiens?

Yes. They just have a secret mutant power that triggers when they die: they come back. But wait... don't they all? Bah-dum-dum. Tss!

    The artwork was "stringbeanery" than ever. Ugh.

Yeah.

    Gideon was so sure of no lifeforms and then we see (years later) bugs and rats and Rocket Raccoon-ish spawn still around 9 years later. Huh. The X-Mansion has been destroyed so often and yet it outlasted the X-men for eras. Huh. The X-men have a surviving Zen Sand Garden. Huh. Not to mention a fully-functional, high-tech, Cable Robot Arm (apparently Belle-free) just happens to be lying around to yoin. Huh. The whole flashforward sequence of Gideon's paradoxally presumptous path to the past was unsatisfying.

Not to mention the idea that a mansion will even remain after 3300 years... unless of course it was just recently abandoned.

    Underwhelming big fight against overwhelming odds.

Yup.

    "Litter Booger" nickname was sadly the highlight of issue.

Heh.

    Does Blink not realize she is a puppet (for 'porting) at best. It's funny how Gideon seemed to completely dismiss her.

There's never really been much logic to Blink serving Selene.

Nah.
