    Oh you're right, it was about her abstaining. So probably she just pushed her in the right direction. More of good timing/strategy than TP flexing.

    Annnnnd... once you read that you'll kinda at least see where my beef is coming from.

    You got it backwards.

    The Xmen whole thing was protecting humanity... ostensibly from evil mutants.

    So really sunspots whole run on The Avengers common and his time as citizen V was perfectly align with what was supposed to happen.

    A big part of the dream was to show that we are Heroes, friends, sisters, brothers, aunts, cousin's...
    They did that, and humanity still decided to build sentinels.

    What I found odd, is they are welcoming all these villains and trusting them.... but Magneto doesn't remove his helmet at all?
    He did have his helmet off. He opened the book talking to Lorna without it.

    How many times should they start over pretending to be heroes while humans kill their children?

    that's always been the unfair thing about the security council having the ability to stop things from going to vote by the general assembly. A unilateral veto for 15 countries is quite unfair. Nice way to keep suspicion down too, Emma didn't make the Russian Ambassador vote in favor, she just nudged the Ambassador to abstain and not block the motion from going to the general assembly.

    No, Bro... wtf... No they frikkenn didn't.

    Mad scientists did that shit. Rogue members of international organizations, did that. A.I.M. Hydra... Hammer... Disgraced or Rogue Shield...

    Not "HUMANITY".

    And... again this is the same justification for every bs invasion since 911.

    12 dudes commit extremism... letd invade and occupy that home country.

    I mean seriously. Some people need to stop moralizing and admit you just want to read books about the brotherhood of evil mutants.

    Honestly... it's not even that big a deal... the PUNISHER has a book. So it's fine I'd that's what you want. Really.

    It's not what I want. Now what I've been rooting for all these years.

    This is as close to Magnetos dreams since house if M.

    XAVIER'S PLAN WOULD HAVE WORKED FINE IF NOT FOR ALL THE JERK MUTANTS STARTING WITH MAGNETO

    My priority is enjoying and supporting stories of timeless heroism and conflict.
    Everything else is irrelevant.

    Humanity built sentinels? Aren't you painting the whole of humanity with one broad brush?

    I'm surprised not more people are calling out similarities to the Inhumans and how that is seemingly not bothering anyone.

    The democratically elected American government basically banned mutants from existing recently. #YesAllHumans

    Sticking with my theory that we're seeing a different life than the current 616.

    If we aren't and this is the main MU, then Hickman has his voices all wrong for everyone, and this will likely be the way the X-Men leave the planet or whatever that old rumour was about the mutants going away from everyone else

    Seriously, how did they accomplish building the astral base and get there and back without serious military funding. I wouldn't be surprised if there are tons of representatives from the American, Russian, and Chinese governments that were working together in the Orchis organization.

    They weren't entirely rogue, they were disavowed in case they failed, but I am sure they had support from several world governments.

    The federal government built them. The combined might of several governments along with terrorist organizations built a base near the sun to build more. After the decimation the government stationed Sentinels at the mansion. Miss me with that “it’s just a few bad apples” garbage. It’s always been systemic.
