    This was a lot of fun. I do kinda like that it was a relatively smaller scale affair, for a space station heist that is.

    Quite liked this.

    The art popped at places: Rahne and Karma talk, Magick's Duel
    The dialogue for Roberto was funny.
    And It got me curious on the Hellions and NM Classic.

And Roberto has been working with humans since Hickman’s Avengers run, even leading AIM. His life was even recently saved by one. Like I get it that the writers want to present mutant pride but moments like this just feel OOC for them.

    Other than that peeve, it was a good first issue.
    But that's an assessment anyone can make. They say human institutions and ideologies weren't built for something better and that's the kind of stuff you'll probably hear anyone more progressive saying. I don't get this mentality where what they say is necessarily anti-human or supremacist. We all know at this point that our society and the biggest institutions were built for the sake of benefitting just one specific part of humanity and exploit the rest.

    It's the connotations the language makes; it's phrased a bit stiff and militantly/nationalistic and, therefore, can draw up some negative connotations for some readers, depending on the experience they've had with the language. When it comes from Magneto, for example, it does sound supremacist because that man has had no problem sending entire waves of humans into a furnace. Because we haven't exactly seen him be checked yet, and with such an emphasis on mutants differentiating themselves from humans, y'know. It's an understandable conclusion. If ever we get official in-dialogue confirmation on where characters stand in relation to this then it'll stop, until then, it's just gonna always be a point of contention, I guess.

    That or we just need clearer/better phrasing.

    Holy crap, the new mutants are a bunch of entitled little bastards and I love it. There were times I felt like I was reading an issue of X-statix. I love how Bobby's time as an Avenger has warped him into such a narcissist. Best read off all the launches, 10/10. DO NOT STEAL BOURBON FROM SPACE PIRATES.

    Her easy manner shames me, oh I hate myself so much!
    I tremble and I'm breathless and I'm begging for her touch.
    She sees my anguished urges but continues smirking by,
    If I dare to follow her, it's likely that I'll die.
    But even as she's feeding, as my body's torn apart,
    Will she think upon me kindly?
    When she slowly eats my heart?

    I like that part made it seem like this was more of a swashbuckling Adventure with friends rather than anything dire. I love the camaraderie between the New Mutants they feel much more like a family unit than any of the other X-men

    It sounds like they have been brainwashed, no one talks like that in casual conversation.

    I really enjoyed this issue, my favourite of the new titles thus far. I didn't know I needed an interstellar road trip with a bunch of rowdy twenty-somethings, but I guess I did. Can't wait for Seeing Being to show up.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Die - Excalibur - New Mutants - Once & Future - Runaways - RWBY - X-Men

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.

    Yeah, that's a fair point too; casual conversation does not seem to be Hickman's fortè...Got the same vibe in X-Men #1 when people were crowding around Magneto saying "Tell us how you defeated the humans!"

    Like, there's gotta be ways of saying the same thing without making it sound so sinister? "What was it like??" "What did they do??" "Did you win??" something like that?

    Art was magnificent throughout. Can't wait for the next one.
    I can believe it and I love that they did it! Corsair did them a favor, then told them to stay on the damn ship so they didn't screw up his super secret pirate business (though really, he should have guessed his... ahem... embellishment would fire up the hero in some of the group). They got themselves into that mess, they can get themselves out it.

    I wonder if Rahne's son will come up at some point. He's still a mutant, right? So he'll be brought back to life eventually.

    I think being a god takes precedence over being a mutant. Like how being a valkyrie overrode whatever it was that Dani does. (Great character, but most forgettable mutation ever.)
