    Until he warped them into Oblivion. Honestly without some major foresight and a Reed Richards plot device he's basically unstoppable. He could definitely put them all down before he ran out of juice. Thor is the only person I see being a marginal threat.

    Franklin Richards is more powerful than Silver Surfer so he is certainly more powerful than Thor.

    Is this the main story-line for Age of X-Man? I wouldn't mind reading the main story-line but have no interest in reading every tie in.

    Yeah, Marvelous X-Men, plus the Alpha and Omega issues bookending it, are the main thrust of the event. The Nightcrawler solo, The X-Tremists, and Prisoner X have been very good in fleshing out some other aspects of Nate's sandbox if you decide to explore further.

    I really enjoyed the Storm and Magneto scenes. It's been ages since a book did some decent character work and this event at least is providing that. Was that the life seed in that one scene with a small model city below it?

    Maybe it is a little too late to ask this but...

    Is there any symbolism at the end with the cyclops/phoenix that i didn't get?
    did i miss something?


    I mean yeah mutants have had it hard but what does the phoenix had to do with it?

    AvsX was the last time that Storm and Magneto were allies and almost friends, apart from IvsX. And I suppose if you have to choose between AvsX and IvsX, the Phoenix is more visually interesting than the mists.

    Apart from that it is a more traumatic memory for both.

    Ok, thanks

    I had the feeling the phoenix was trying to break the illusion or something important was going to happen with Jean.

    Daddy issues. Nate wanted to show his dad killing his own dad. It's some freudian stuff.

    But yeah, what Glio said.

    The phoenix was about Storm and Magneto memory of Xavier´s death which helped them to remember but I also agree with Glio and PrezValentine it´s a scene that means much to all of them.

    Next issue is focused on Jean, she may be unconsciously trying to wake up the rest of the X-men from Nate´s control because he said that he was tired of wiping their minds and that it was making him feel sick because he does care about them, so this is something that has been happening a lot.

    Indeed, it has. It's like someone in the X-Office looked at what was happening in the Spider-Office with Ben Reilly's character vis-à-vis The Clone Conspiracy and thought, "Hold my beer." For those who'll ask what that has to do with anything, well, both Ben and Nate Grey had their heyday in the 90s and were pretty "controversial" with many of the fans for some reason or other, then after being "killed off" heroically by the end of their respective runs, their big returns in the late 2010s cast them as outright villains who deluded themselves into thinking that their "good intentions" justified the horrors they were willing to commit. (By the way, I am aware Nate came back in Dark X-Men, got depowered due to being used as a psychic battery, and then vanished into obscurity again after some time with the last New Mutants relaunch.)
    The spider is always on the hunt.
