    Have their been indications that merging with Fantomex has been liberating Charles' personality or is he just being unapologetically jerkass?

    Chuck can mind-wipe Jean, too? Come on, this shouldn't happen anymore.

    And FFS, supernatural exists in Marvel. Stop trying to turn that shit into sci-fi.

    Boring and forgettable. So far I'm not liking Rosenburg's writing

    I agree. I finished the issue with a bad taste in my mouth. Very forgettable with no impact?

    This was disappointing. The art didn't help. I get why the O5 would be a bit jaded from having done this so long, but their attitude in this book read as OOC. And I really disliked the implied Xavier mind tampering shenanigans.

    Hmmm, this book had its moments. As always the comedy elements are my favorite part of Rosenberg's writing. But the overall tone was somber, X is still a jerk, and there is some inconsistency with Angel's degree of control as established in the previous arc.

    So it seemed implied to me that the team had a different outlook/attitude (less bitter/pessimistic) during their 2nd meeting, while the first meeting they all seemed sad and bitter.

    Maybe the point was to bridge the gap, particularly for Jean, between the outlook in PR versus Red?

    Just spitballing here.

    For a meeting that should be epic and exciting it was really bad .

    The plot is also confusing why an alien who wants to control people or connect to them would stay in the same city for years? Why the difference in the attitude of violence at the time that attacked Xavier for the speech of peace and love now?

    It was for Warren to have control over Archangel at the end of Astonishing (Shadow King arc) but it seems that the title itself ignores what happened in the previous issues.

    I read it as if Jean mind-wiped the team. Adjunsting to X "lesson", of not being so depressing.

    In any case, I didnt like this book.

    X is a jerk. In every book. And the X-men are depressing and miserable.
