    I like Scott being the field leader but it does feel kind of like a step backwards to me, but I think this role will turn out better for Scott than being the leader of the mutants. I do like that Scott and Xavier seem to be in a good place.. though I kind of wish we got to see them have a heart to heart. I don't like missed beats. Same goes with Scott and Jean, but I am glad we are moving forward.

    I can't wait to see Scott, Jean, Wolverine and the others in action in HOX #3. I do like seeing Scott being confident and strong.

    I like Scott, he is my second fave but I didn't like him (or anybody) being the absolute leader of mutankind.
    The X-men are a team and nobody should be above everybody else, unless it is as a teacher/parental figure.
    My opinions are my own

    Pretty much these. I vaguely remember Cyke wondering why people assumed he was leader back in San Francisco, and then Utopia happened where Cyke had to assume the role to unite the mutants. And then Schism happened, where Cyke was even willing to step down and put Logan in charge if it meant they would still be united, since in Cyke's mind, unity meant better chances of survival. And then in Gillen's run, he then made his own committee.

    To me, Scott's the type of dude who is happy having a Sunday bbq with friends, but is perfectly capable of taking over any situation when shite hits the fan. He wouldn't enjoy the latter, but would do it out of necessity.

    I'm honestly more amused that, with how bad the X-Books have been recently, Hickman just did a Jedi hand-wave and even Utopia!Scott's detractors are cheering for Utopia 2.0 / Genosha 3.0-- and the best part is, with Cyke not at the helm, he can be absolved of responsibility when the other boot eventually drops.

    So, we get a competent Cyke back and he's got an alibi. Best early xmas present ever.

    I just hope Emma will be given a similar deal.

    Don't like? Don't read. Let your wallet talk.

    When will Logan call out Jean for putting his clone and his clone's underage clone in an X-Squad?

Is it going backward for Scott, or is it better for him to be Xavier's warrior than to be himself the leader of mutant kind?

    Thoughts?
    It would be a step backward if he didn't keep his mature behavior. If we saw Scott doubting himself, hating who he is and cowering on Xavier's shadow, I'd say it's regression. But the few pages Hickman gaves us shows him confident, calm and ready to do what he must.

    Also, I doubt he wants to be the leader of mutantkind (like in Utopia) or to be the one holding the team in its darkest hour (Rosenberg). I'm not saying Scott is one to run from his responsibilities, because he isn't. But I think he'd only do it if there was no other way. And he'd be back where he was after M-Day, gritting his teeth with his back against the wall, making the hard choices. Xavier created a mutant utopia which has all it needs to last, not just focus on survival. Scott probably knows where he's needed and that's as field leader. Leave it to Xavier and Magneto to handle the politics and he can be a hero for his people again.

    Or worse yet, somebody megalomaniacal might do it instead.

    It's funny how the mutant leader position actually came to him as co-director of the school in Decimation. By offering asylum to mutants even if they weren't X-Men, he became de facto their leader, whether he liked it or not. Although Emma theoretically had the same authority in school as he did, they both knew that she was not suitable for being the public figure.

    He is the rock that their island nation is built upon. The people of Krakoa know him and what he has done for them over the years, and they look up to him. He might not be RULING Krakoa, but he is definitely leading it.

    It is interesting because I thought the Krakoa issue was going to end after HOX and POX. It is good that continues, it shows Marvel has long term plans and there is still a lot to discover.

    I just hope by issue three other characters show up alongside cyclops.

    It seems almost too good to be true.

    Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to it even if slightly skeptical.

    I have remembered when Bruce Banner reassured Tyke by telling him that he believed Adult Scott was a hero.

    It was a nice touch. Obviously he can empathize with everything about Dark Phoenix.

    I miss Bruce hangin' with other characters but I guess he's too busy beating up Satan and trying to conquer the world before Xavier, Coulson, and Carnage do it.

    Is Bruce really still dead from CW2? Wow. I know we have a million Hulks running around, but that's still surprising.

    no he's back but is mostly on the run while devil hulk has 95% of the interactions with people from other books
