    I respect their hustle.

    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?

    This was certainly... different. It had its charms.

    Hordeculture compromising Krakoa's transit system, hurting & diminishing it in the process, and looking to ultimately gain control over it... or destroy it, was the most important development, IMO.

    Don't be obtuse.
    Musicians, actors, athlètes, politicians: none of those are gods. And I'll question the (in-)sanity of anyone convinced they are.

    I won't comment about the nature of religious figures and prophets however, faith and beliefs are a private affair.

    And how would you know *anything* about me holding a "worship" in the first place? I Don't talk about religion on this forum, let alone with you, so please enlighten me here.
    Or is it another case of you inventing things on the fly?

    I stand by what I said: anyone believing mutants are litteral gods in-universe is a fool.
    And anyone believing athlètes or musicians or actors or politicians or any other kind of popular figures are litteral gods IRL is even more foolish.
    In both instances, psychiatric help is necessary ASAP.

    It is exactly because it is life, id est knowing everything can be taken away so easily, that it should cause some amount of trepidation and humility in any balanced human being.
    Which is not what some of the Kraked with their leaders are showing, on the countrary they are purpoting on their own superiority to the rest of the world every chance they get it seems.

    The Reavers could have nuked the island, if they had wished to do so.
    Hordeculture could have nuked the island, if they had wished to do so.
    THAT is the reality of the Kraked situation right now.
    Their security is laughably bad at the moment, to the point you have to Wonder how hard Orchis is trying to wipe them out exactly, if both the Reavers and Hordeculture - with less resources and less personnel - were able to get a killshot when they couldn't.

    pkingdom is right, I Don't see country leaders handling themselves any incident occuring somewhere in their territory, there are people who should be in place to handle these things THEN report to them on their findings.
    Case in point, the Great Captains and whatever troops they have at disposal.
    Rachel and Kable accompanying Cyclops would have made much more sense here, rather than Emma Frost and Sebastian Shaw.
    It would also have tied neatly with the idea of those three still figuring out how to function together as a family unit which, despite what off-panel believers keep harping against, is still a work in progress.

    The only thing mutants proved once again is that they are wholly alienated with the concept of preparedness.
    They should have asked T'challa for an immediate crash course instead of the constant posturing about their "superiority".

    This book is right up there with "Counter-X" X-Man.

    It's priceless.

    Being an ex X-Men reader can I ask you a thing: what the hell is this bunch of mutant garbage I see around?
    X-men who fight against some steampunk grannies?
    Scott and Jean are again a couple, but Jean lend Scott to Emma and Scott lend Jean to Logan?
    Apocalypse who ask to be called ···---|=|---··· or something like that; how should I read that?
    Are the Marvel's writers snorting the washing powder?

    I hope you will forgive the rudeness of my outburst.

    People saying they haven't read X-men for years, yet complain the X-men now aren't how they remember now and should come back to it. Ah, life without a sense of irony must be so dull...

    You say that every week.

    Scott and Emma arrived together. Emma and Jean are on decent terms. Emma spoke of Scott with love. Game still on.
