Quick Page By Page reactions to compare if you read the issue...

Uncanny X-Men 015 (2019)

00 Cover does it's job.

Themed Splash Page: That opening quote is a sad testament. Depressing. Do we just assume a 'the narrator' - who doesn't even have subsequent boxes in the story?? For being the new themed format, this opening full black page starts things off with a depressing turn off. For some reason it has felt less impactful than it does the Immortal Hulk book it copies - maybe 'cuz there the font is cooler and the quote feels more applicable. Here, it seems to say the X-men good guys win but 'the narrator' sees there's just as much loss by the end.

01 Oh brother. Kill off this DB guy. When is it a good protocol to have ample oppurtunity to allow an open-door prisoner to collude with his captors?! And Shan should count her lucky stars that she's been literally reprogrammed 'cuz if DB does cure her then her merciful friends might justifiably just turn around and throw her in a cell next to him for her past collusion with Callahan.

02-04 So, Handler Val works for The State Department (and may or may not have a unscrupulous agenda). So, Cap literally and figuratively can't sell the Avengers Unity Squad concept anymore. So, State and Mightiest are currently fine with the X-men illegally imprisoning mutant supervillains in a pub basement.

05 New recruit Jono is an instigator, right off. [sarcasm]Yay! Plus, he must give off wicked mutant vibes for that dipwad rabbler to accuse him of being a mutie just 'cuz he wears a scarf.[/sarcasm]

06 Odd 8-ball jacket choice for Cyke - any ideas why? His UXM's curent target is the MLF - conveniently easypeasy to locate - apparently they dumbly texted Reaper their plans before accepting him back. Whoa, Forearm seems to bop Cyke good...

07-09 Okay, WTH just happened? Foreman knocked Scott down and now he stands at a distance as the 2 teams face off?! Poor choreography moment. Who is the redhead in yellow and navy - is she the one in all yellow here: https://uncannyxmen.net/sites/default/files/images/team/liberationfront.jpg? Boring, typical, unscathing free-for-all added to recycled X-ideology debating, basically the same thing - the 50 shades of why No More Mutants is so bad. Marvel is going all out to show how Magik is far and above the better bamfer for the X-men.

10 Wow. Banshee should eat some carbs! Cyke easily drops the anorexic wailer (that has hooked up with Cable's kid for an untold reason). Scott has an awkward 'family reunion' with the whiney, stubborn, shortsighted Hope. Whoa, that is a cool shot of Logan sneaking up...

11 Okay, WTH just happened again? Poor choreography again ooor Logan going to gut Hope with gun on his boss but is ordered not to so he trips up to merely elbow her and screw up her aim...? And the shot still appears to hit head on into Scott's visor - but (we later learn) only is lethal enough to, what, vaporize his one eye...?

12-14 We learn her assassination target (to save the future *rolls eyes*) is Anti-mutant activist spokeswoman Ms. Prestel introduced in this arc. We see a good use of Hope's power using Cyke and Wolvie's power to beat the heroes and (we later learn) survive Logan gutting her afterall.

15 What/why is that song DB is singing?

16-19 Oh brother. This guy is now the goto doctor for the UXM?! This guy thinks the UXM could consider him for membership?! This guy turned Cyclops into a walking gimmick clishe with one eye?! This guy fixes all the transmoded girls with an uninteresting wave of the hand treatment?! ... just kill off DB.

20 Now, we have probably more supervillains in handcuffs in Harry's basement than we have UXM upstairs. Now, we have a self-loathing Warlock/Jaimedupe hybrid. Now, this chapter wasn't horrible (especially with nice art) but there was much of the directions/developments that were... disagreeable if not DISAGREEABLE.

What did YOU find disagreeable here?
