      • Cover CHEAT AND LIE! BAH! Yeah, yeah, it's a beautiful "Psylocke" teaser image and Logan is in this BUT THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN. C'mon, Marvel! Another wasteful cover choice to judge this book by?! BAH.

    What we got was better, imo. Buh bye Joseph... again.

No arguement but it the cover deserves a knock - it deserves a knock.

    Bonus? Bah. It's a waste.

Not sure why BONUS was capitalized when it should have been italicized, in hindsight.
AND ALSO, did we get an extra 21st story page, too? Now, THAT'S alright.

    Um. How can anyone in the world not know who Juggernaut is?

Possibly 3rd Worldish country, hick level news agencies, etc?

    Given the circumstances, Pyro isn't surprising. At best, he's only ever been a fair weather good guy. Random has usually been sorta bad. Sure, he helped defend Utopia when he lived there, but before that, he was attacking the mansion with Exodus' Brotherhood/Acolytes.

What about his superhero tenure on X-Factor? That established a lasting core personality trait in many readers mind?


    There's rarely a point in having a leader. Teams generally fight willy-nilly. Nobody ever listens to the "leader" unless they feel like it.



    Cold shmold. If they've got Dark Beast working with them, there's no resaon not to include Hope. Lovely to see New Mutants defending Dark Beast. [/sarcasm] They know he almost killed Sam's brother, right?

But it's not "two wrongs make a right".

    I still don't think any bullet should ever be able to damage Scott's eyes. This just ignores the nature of his powers.

Yeah, interesting argument. That makes it even more odd(read:contrived).


    Magik is their transport.

That'd be fine. Just wish they'd state or even imply it - more often than they rarely do.

    Banshee was hanging with them since last issue. He was partnered with Hope.

Just wish they showed some of his down time. Even on the Dazzler's X-Team before he was an enigma wrapped in a riddle but blindly okay by his fellow mutants.


    Joseph was put in the X-Brig on Utopia after he attacked the team in Magneto: Not A Hero. When the island sank, Danger let all of the inmates go. Before this, he had sacrificed himself to fix the polar damage Our Lord Magneto caused during the Magneto War. I'm sure Astra is out there pulling his strings somewhere and already has a plan to restore him.

THANK YOU! So, this is 'clearly' Joe be a subsequent clone - maybe thanks to Astra? Ugh, clones. And when you say let go, d'ya mean 'to the wind'?


    Well, she's gotta do something to remain relevant.

No complaints here. Revanche is a very interesting addition to this storyline - in spite of her whacky "rebirth" circumstances.


    Knew when she quit she was a goner. Not really sure how I feel about it. I don't like the character, but I don't like killing characters like this.

Reserving judgement depending on the deets, too. As a last sentence 'revelation' it was fine, imo, for a shock tease - assuming we get deets ASAP. But then again, this writing team gave us nothing ASAP about the Transmode Jamie shocker...
