    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.


    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.

    The one-page, no-twist, after-the-fact murder of Candra was anticlimactic.

    Underwhelming big fight against overwhelming odds.


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


    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.

    Too harsh?
