    Default Age of X-Man: Marvelous X-Men #3 (spoilers/discussion)

    Mixed feelings on this issue. Liked the art, a bit put out by the story. It wasn't bad per se, just a little frustrating to have Storm and Magneto get their fingers on the pulse of everything, then get zapped by Nate. Last issue, I wouldn't have minded at all, but we're past the halfway point so I was hoping for a bit more forward momentum.

    Nate's POV was interesting, though, and a bit of humanization very much needed. Even the architect of this little Utopia project seems to have his moments of doubt, though he still comes off a bit juvenile, like that moment where he insists the X-Men still just see him as some kid in a leather jacket. Like, dude, you've powered up, but you haven't really gotten your mind around near as much as you think you have.

    Good issue, recommend for the Storm and Magneto stuff, but things do need to pick up next month. We can only have Nate hit the reset button so many times.

    Can’t wait until they hit the real reset button in Omega. All in or Delete. Can’t be selective on the ramifications. Either everything is remembered or nothing is remembered.

    Sometimes you open a thread and think spoilers summary, then you open and go like pfffffff (insert GIF with disappointed face)

    Well I enjoyed it. The panel with Nate's world depicted as a basement hobby, complete with life seed as lightbulb was perfect. Completely sums up what this really is to him.

    This issue was worth buying, just for the Storm vs. Magneto scenes.

    That just makes this whole thing so sad, but so creepy. These people were his friends at one time and now they're just tools for him.

    Not even tools, but just toys.

    Right? And his thoughts on how much he regrets "having" to do it every time - it really does sound like he's trying to convince himself.

    Sorry, man. Sometimes you gotta read the book yourself.
