    Yep. Though Hickman seems to be going with the view that "personality + memories = soul" so, while the clones aren't technically the originals, they are truly identical copies with identical souls. ...

    Nope. Different duplication processes.

    Sinister grew a Jean clone to adulthood. The Phoenix Force then transplanted the piece of Jean's soul it took from her into the clone.

    Yes, they're clones. Hickman uses the word "copy" several times. This isn't mind transfer; it's copy and paste. Or, if you like, back-up and replace. See also the section on one of the text pages...

    Adultery is a form of polyamory. It's just not consensual polyamory (e.g. an open marriage).

    Recall Hickman's tweet from a while back about a gathering of mutants being called an orgy.

    It won't surprise me in the least if polyamory is exactly where he's going. On a level, it makes sense....
