    I just never had a problem with Laura lightening up, but I had no great love for the early character so I'm biased. I always find the no-contractions stoic killer thing mad cheesy these days. You can only take that so far before a character has to evolve.

    I really love this book already. Psylocke, Laura and Sinister all working together. The antagonist showing that man-machine hybrids are already cropping up in opposition to mutants. The one thing I love about a GOOD x-force book is how its more of a character study of what drives them to make the decisions they do before they kill and this book has all of that (as opposed to the bad x-force book where they were just wanting to have a body count).

    The twitter feed explaining Kwannon was also incredibly insightful. Excalibur and this are definately on my must read.

Other than that, she seems like an interesting character and I like what they're doing with her, I'll definitely keep reading.
    I also agree they didn't convinced us enough of the change. It can be justified but Tini and Jonah will have to, at some point, make a better job in creating justifications for this editorial decision.

    I enjoyed the book, could like it more but I really think this art is not for me. Digging in Kwannon's past is really rewarding.

    I liked this. Months ago I was afraid this book would be about Warren.

    This was awesome.
    I loved this new Psylocke, I was afraid but marvel is doing great with both women

    I enjoy Laura being a bit dark and this book did her great and her interactions with Cable were nice, I really wanted them to be friends
    My opinions are my own

    Oh I forget to mention that I didnt like that the mutants are essentially being held hostage on Krakoa. Kwannon has to ask for permission to leave, which she was officially denied. WTF? I can get limiting who gets in, but not who gets out, especially if one were to deem themselves not safe considering what happened in X-Force

    It's only because of Xaviers recent death, not a permanent thing.

    I wasn’t expecting much from this book. I didn’t expecting to be blown away. The art and storyline were awesome. Aside from X-Force, this was one of the better lines to come out of Dawn of X. I guess the thong-kini is here to stay lol. I just hope Rachel becomes part of the book somehow. Her past as a hound would be good addition to the team dynamic. 5stars in my book ��
