    Right now the X-Men have leverage. They can resurrect mutants and offer safe harbor from the rest of the world. There isn't much reason to go against that because it is a pretty sweet deal.

    All the mutant terror groups like MLF, Acolytes and Brotherhood are probably love the idea of a Mutant state anyway.
    It looked like right when Apocalypse conceded to this notion everyone else was like: Well if Apoc does I will too. Just from the scene at least. Everyones head we hanging low a bit.

    So, at the start of the book, if this a shot of Scott’s team being reincarnated, who’s the guy to the left of him in that picture?
    Not Warren, no wings. Not Logan and clearly not Kurt.

    Enquiring minds want to know.
    That's Mystique.

    lolllllll, what?

    In the fiction, Captain America wasn't around. That's all that matters. The characters aren't, like, aware they're in a comic book.

    You really expect them to be like "ah, crap, they couldn't help us during 'E is for Extinction' because Marvel has these different editorial houses, and those characters had other stories in other books, but, it's cool."

    not really. They're done nothing with it other than make him look like Ray Man
    Captain, in Order to build a better world, sometimes means tearing the old one down... And that makes enemies.

    Isn't Hope's costume a palette swap?

    So you really think all those heroes simply just don't care at all?

    There are tons of times where major things happen and heroes from other teams aren't there, are we to assume it's because they don't care?

    Hope is a pallet swap. Not as green and not as red.

    Aren't the "Five" basically just creating clones? I mean no matter how you slice it the one's they resurrect still died their souls are gone even if you replicate their brains..

    Also this issue really just solidifies that Jean is subpar without the cosmic fire Chicken.

    I agree with your sentiment.

    I have to wonder/expect that a significant number of the mutant populace has given in to the idea that if you're not actively using your platform (speaking specifically of other super humans and/or governments etc) to eliminate/criminalize/vilify threats to mutantkind, then you're consider complicit by not standing against it. Its extreme Us vs. Them mentality, and I'm not thrilled about it, but as others have pointed out (and Hickman himself with the murder tolls info graphic page etc) -- I'm not surprised/blaming them either.

    They just haven't done anything with him period

    Besides looking like Ray Man makes him more recognizable in a crowd shot, and that white boy needs all the help he can get in that regard

    You do realize that we're talking in-universe, right? Also, "cheap shock stories"? Those have been around since the Golden Age. Try to keep up, please.

    Yep. Though Hickman seems to be going with the view that "personality + memories = soul" so, while the clones aren't technically the originals, they are truly identical copies with identical souls. So, they'll think, feel, and act exactly as the originals would have.
