    Yeah, I also suspects that Nate could affect the others' powers for his own benefit.

    lol now we know the truth, Kitty joined Apocalypse in AoXM because Colossus totally creeped on her.

    He does have a savior complex going. He is probably also worried about Telepaths like Jean and Betsy getting out of his control. If both them turned on him and joined Apocalypse it would probably drive him absolutely nuts.

    I like the Apocalypse and the X-tracts tie-in. Like that this will be more of a crossover and less so like seperate minis. Gives the sense that they are connected in the same world more so that I thoguht we'd see

    I really enjoyed this. Especially enjoyed the solid teamwork displayed here, with everyone pitching in to help, even if X-Man had some of the bigger moments. Felt bad for X-23, but now we know why Gabby is locked away. Looking forward to the next issue.

    Also, love that Nature Girl wanted to keep that bear lol.

    Yeah, it's a thing that I'm liking about this event since Alpha. Everything seems connected.

    My question is still why Nate can't control Apocalypse. If he was really just being allowed by Nate to exist as a threat, then why wouldn't Nate make him more monstrous? Especially since it's not like Nate likes Apocalypse that much.

    Apocalypse could be either a "bug in the Matrix" or something set up by Nate himself. Maybe he's too much of wild card to have any actual control exerted over him or Nate keeps him as an antagonist for his team and to keep their minds busy.

    Yea, I like the bug in the system theory. I still expect to see Legion held prisoner somewhere to keep the world intact.

    Really enjoyed this issue.
    >The art and writing were on point.
    >X-23 feeling useless in a situation where SNIKTSTAB isn't an option made me laugh... then I felt horrible for her remembering Gabby. I was glad her tactical thinking came into play to save the pods.
    >The constant loud speaker reminders that separation is perfection and emotion is bad were perfectly done. So creepy and perfect for the purposes of indoctrination and ensuring continued subservience.
    >Raised from conception in pods, eh? Why do I feel like Beast is in a basement somewhere concocting these kids from genetic samples just like Dark Beast was in AoA?
    >Nature Girl's bear? Too cute... but I can see it turning feral once X-Jesus's control breaks. Getting killed by her own bear would be darkly appropriate and a metaphor for the whole false tameness of the AoXM.
    >Asking Jean about the time when people used to have sex. I laughed! And Jean being the one to get Apoc's telepathic flyer message makes sense considering her telepathy [duh] and her own history of dirty sexy time infractions.
    >I'm looking forward to the rest of this miniseries and to see how it interconnects with the others I'm reading. Hopefully it'll be just as interconnected as AoA was, especially at the end.

    Your favorite character is in function of the story, not the other way around.
    I can't thank you enough for seeing common sense and reason.

    I was expecting something as good as Age o X-man: Alpha.
    It was just ok.

    how does getting rusty impact her being immune to the elements? why on earth would she feel cold from the rain? what does living in peace have to do with creating a rainstorm and creating a large amount wind to blow away smoke? ororo seemed to be the only mutant that had such issues. I didnt see nature girl having a problem with communicating with the animals or nightcrawler having issues with teleporting. it seems to me it more lazy writing versus whatever excuse these writers came up with.
    ALL HAIL THE HADARI YAO!!!! NOW AGAIN THE ONE TRUE AND ONLY GODDESS OF THE X-MEN AS CLAREMONT INTENDED!!!!!

    X-Man in control of Legions body via the life seed makes him a god who can most likely make anyone feel anything in this fantasy world he created.

    Grain of salt.

    One would think that making a big rain to put out an enourmous fire is a bigger task than telleporting or talking to some animals. Maybe that's because Ororo had problem?! This just shows how big are her powers and very difficult to master. And if you are so upset because she felt cold after a big effort, go read another story. In X-men, characters have limits, they are not all powerfull.
