Even with Krakoa providing a lot of their food and resources, they simply can't fit the number of mutants they're shooting for.

    Agreed on the X-men disconnect. Given how small the island is, you'd think Arakko showing up would be a big deal. Double the size of your nation! Except it seems like its gone? Or being ignored?

    Seeing the weird background mutants just annoys me even more that almost all of the 'main' mutants and mutant leaders are pretty people with superpowers. It really seems like guys like Magneto and Xavier are the outliers, and the mutant norm is 'looks like shark dude'
    Arakko isn't ignored, it is just post-poned. Like it is just a future plot, so nothing gonna happen for a while. A very baffling choice

    Maybe pencillers should draw less weird monster mutants. I think it would be better

    Habitats are scattered throughout the world and beyond. We have seen habitats on the Moon, Mars, Savage Land, Himalayas, at the bottom of the ocean ...

    We do not know how much area of Krakoa is limited to the two main islands and how much is in the rest of the habitats.

    Except for Mars, all of those belong to other people. Namor's claiming the ocean floor, the Moon by the Inhumans, the Savage Land is a natural heritage site, and the Himalayas belong to various nations since they're huge. They can't just park settlements there and claim dibs. Namor might let them, but the rest not so much. They're a nation now; they can't just build secret bases in these places without consequences.

    That will be krakoa’s ultimate downfall, when all the new mutants realize there’s no wi-fi!

    According to the map from XM #2:

    Think of them not as settlements or bases, but more of as embassies, officially sanctioned or not, and consequences be damned. There's also nothing secret about them, as they're not hidden, to my knowledge.

    I don't think that it is all that baffling.

    It's not like we know the complete lay of the land there, and it would fit right into what is happening. I'm not even sure that we know whatever they were left to guard came out as a "Win".

    When you're a nation, you can't just DO that and say consequences be damned! That's essentially invasion! The Savage Land one irks me in particular, because its straight up colonization and exploitation of the land and natural resources of the place, which is what 2/3rds of the Savage Land stories are about stopping!

    Zuhhh what?
    Its not colonization...non of the indigenous Savage Landers are being conquered....nor is it exploitation...none of the Savage Landers are being put to work, or having their surroundings changed for the benefit of the mutants. All we have is a buncha mutants picking flowers. I guarantee that the this is okay with the SL who will no doubt benefit from from the from the KraKoan drugs.

    I do think the double-shipping is hurting the artistic production, overall.
    With these six initial books...with readers buying at least four out of the six...they really didn't need to rush to double-ship (and...from HoX 01 to XF 03, it all seems a little rushed).
    Sure you guys want more story, and quickly but it should never be at the expense of quality and consistency.

    I love that New Mutants is an umbrella title that ensembles all the new, younger Mutants.
    While my first favourites will always be Dani and Co., I do appreciate seeing the others from GenX, Hellions etc. I hope that apart from the ONM out in space, Brisson's NM will be a rotating cast similar to X-Men.

    I’m not sure what age Pixie is meant to be at this point but she’s probably drank alcohol before. Megan is Welsh, raised there, and the legal drinking age there is 18 (although most people start drinking earlier, particularly in rural regions which Aberystwyth is). She’d have to adhere to the law of being 21 in America but I doubt even this would’ve been her first time with alcohol.

    I'm glad Krakoa/Krakoans do not have to adhere to any of the societal rules and regulations of the other world nations.

    Could be worse, could be Wrexham.
