    I think PV is being sarcastic. But in general, yeah. I'm not getting the vibe about the cult business. Seems like one person said it, now it's a bandwagon to call them cult-like because it's been said for so long. It's old & tired like the Xavier = Maker theory that people will keep screaming.

    They seem like their own separate community where they can finally be openly mutant & proud without the worries of human violence. So everyone is in a state of newness & rejoice. But I don't see it as cultism. Just an awakening period for a while, then things will settle down.

    This is more of a cult.

    Bling! would totally reject Krakoa’s offer. If she’s not included in NM its a sham!

    We're just trying to kick off the new status quo by putting out as much story as we can. Things will slow down as we move towards Wave Two.

    Oh, well. I like my boy Herman enough with how Ed writes him, so I'm ok with it.
    Doesn't look like he's using anyone I care about either, so good there. Means I can just enjoy the book for the premise. I wonder if the "young mutants" in question are all new characters that Armor & Co are trying to recruit a la Xavier in the old days, or if some of them are mutants who ditched the school off-panel and they're trying to coax back into the fold. Like, I could see Roxy, Benjy, and Nathan being NOT down with Krakoa's communal living scene.

    ETA:

    Yes, exactly. If nothing else, some dissident voices who aren't antagonists would be interesting to hear from.

    Which begs the question...which it seems as though NM will address in some form...
    If a mutant doesn't want to/chooses not to live on Krakoa, does that mean they are permanently banned from ever stepping foot on the island?
    As open as they are to inviting any and everyone in, I don't see Xavier and Co. 'forcing' or 'dictating' ALL mutants MUST live on Krakoa only.

    I'm happy to see Rictor this prominent. I hope Shatterstar will be in this. Also, it's nice to see that they are going to use his connection to the Earth (which was also kind of mystical), especially with Krakoa around.

    The covers and the sollicts all look so promising! I cant' wait for Dawn of X.

    X-men: Most mutant enemies are now aligned with Krakoa, so I guess the old enemy must be human, right?

    New Mutants: I'm glad younger students will be on it, not just original New Mutants and Generation X.

    Fallen Angels: Boooring.

    X-force: Jean using new Cerebra looks dope.

    Excalibur: Betsy and Brian fighting again? Not sure I like it.

    Marauders: Everybody aiming a new husk. Must be a very dangerous mutant.

    Why would you need the mind control twins for mutant outreach?

    I would say...read the issue to find out before going off into wild speculation and emotional turmoil. But that would be a complete waste of time and energy.

    I wish Jon Hickman was writing Excalibur. I really do not trust any other writer with Apocalypse atm.

    To counter the inevitable uproar that Glob Herman is bound to trigger, appearing door to door.

    Those twins are gonna need to CALM the hysteria and then GRACIOUSLY edit that terrifying memory from the brain banks of these HooMunz that simply CAN'T, with Glob Herman.
