    Absolutely, and when Shalvey did that alternate cover with Banshee flying in front of the Cliffs of Moher I thought there was a possibility something might finally be done with him. Sadly up until...
  2. "I haven't had to wipe my own ass since my x-gene...

    "I haven't had to wipe my own ass since my x-gene activated" was by far my favourite line in any comic for years.
  3. Of course you're right, but how long does the...

    Of course you're right, but how long does the honeymoon period last?

    In King's The Stand when the Free Zone committee forms those originally on that committee were mostly the obvious choices,...
  4. Wow. A great post. Seems to sum up the entire...

    Wow. A great post. Seems to sum up the entire premise currently. But I do think it's got really good chances to continue and progress, even as a nation, long term. I'm sure some of the issues you...
  5. I mean, not just that, but of course what you've...

    I mean, not just that, but of course what you've brought up stands out. But 12 people running an entire country? 12 people with no expertise in healthcare, economics, state education, defence,...
  6. Aristotle came up with the idea that money...

    Aristotle came up with the idea that money originally came from barter. But there are other schools of thought, it perhaps grew from a gift based society, and was quantifying "I owe you one".

    I...
  7. Yes, you're right. What kind of representation...

    Yes, you're right.

    What kind of representation is there on Krakoa? Are the council representing the views of ordinary citizens at all? Where does anyone with a grievance go? How are issues...
  8. Banshee saved Japan, I guess he has to be...

    Banshee saved Japan, I guess he has to be respected there too.

    More generally, I'd think Storm is respected quite widely.
  9. A point I tried to make less eloquently earlier. ...

    A point I tried to make less eloquently earlier. Will the psychics think "I'm doing all this work and there's Sunfire (for want of a better example) just sitting getting drunk, I deserve more". Or...
  10. Another good point you raise is the desire of...

    Another good point you raise is the desire of people (yourself in the example you use) to actually work and contribute to society.

    Loving this thread.

    It makes me also think about what's...
  11. Well, sorry again. Guess I just got carried...

    Well, sorry again. Guess I just got carried away.

    Is this how you expected the discussion to go?
  12. Check out my earlier post about currency. They...

    Check out my earlier post about currency. They won't necessarily have, or need their own currency or bank. They could be using a friendly nation's currency, an, or, be pegged to another currency...
  13. Looks like you and me are thinking along very...

    Looks like you and me are thinking along very similar lines. Fascinating.

    It just keeps giving this new direction, it could go on for years.

    I guess the original poster never really expected...
  14. Need? Or want? Don't get me wrong, I...

    Need? Or want?

    Don't get me wrong, I completely understand what you're saying. But at what point is a line drawn. Is every mutant on Krakoa entitled to everything they need? Everything they...
  15. Cool. So state owned, and not for profit I...

    Cool. So state owned, and not for profit I imagine. So what we're getting is the beginnings of a society, although starting from a much more advanced level.

    Problems are coming then. Will, say...
  16. Well, in fact, what you're saying is does a...

    Well, in fact, what you're saying is does a country need to follow market economics. You're point is very interesting, and goes directly to the heart of capitalism in my view. Can a country...
  17. You've thrown up an interesting point there...

    You've thrown up an interesting point there yourself, whether you realised what you were saying or not.

    There is property on Krakoa. But who owns it? There are bars, are they for profit? Do the...
  18. Glad you're okay with what I wrote. I quite...

    Glad you're okay with what I wrote. I quite understand what you mean about how some people treat this new era. I have issues with some parts of it too. On the whole, however, I'm finding it...
  19. You raised a really interesting topic, well, I...

    You raised a really interesting topic, well, I found it interesting anyway. There have been some fairly reasonable answers as I see it. We do accept easily that the mutant telepaths can control the...
  20. Many countries have defied the UN and ignored...

    Many countries have defied the UN and ignored International Law (the UK Prime Minister has recently threatened to do just that) and still trade freely in the global market. There may be sanctions...
  21. I also see your point on markets, but look at the...

    I also see your point on markets, but look at the history of Emma Frost, she can (not perhaps control the market, but) control traders. There's nothing to stop Krakoa (or those controlling the...
  22. Just another point on currency. For centuries...

    Just another point on currency. For centuries Scotland was a separate country from England. They existed side by side with their own currency (one legacy is there are still separate Scottish...
  23. Good question. A country doesn't necessarily...

    Good question. A country doesn't necessarily need to have a federal bank (see those individual countries in the EU who use the Euro) to exist as an economy. I suspect they are working their way...
  24. I know, I would have thought so too, and he's...

    I know, I would have thought so too, and he's always been so one dimensional. Now he's being well written and there's finally more to him.

    New Black King? Frost will want Shaw removed I'm sure, I'm also pretty sure she'd trust Sean.
