    ororo was really being bitchy to scott this issue. not sure how I feel about that. hes been very sympathetic to her in xmen so it seems a bit odd to see her written as such

    Hellions was a cluster****. The writer didn't have a great grasp on anyone's voice.

You had Claremont still writing into the 380's, before Lobdell took over for a hot second and then the big Morrison reset around 400, and then Claremont was back after X-Treme, circa 445.
    I have to go back and see but it felt like an eternity of issues where she wasnt there. Yes she was officially back in 444 but I dont recall the period where she was completely absent.

Also, I don't get how what T'Challa and his ancestors did impacted the empires enslaved population. I mean, yes, I knew his goal was to restore their memories, thereby reducing the empire's reach and numbers. But why would aliens be affected by anything from Wakanda Prime?
    I'm not sure those are the same people storm attacked as after she stopped the first wave Njadaka called for reinforcements. In the galatic wakanda time line 2000 years had passed so the influences of wakanda would be, I imagine, deeply engrained in the minds of those alien worlds conquered. it would be akin to the african american experience in america. though those peoples come from various countries within africa a majority of them have no connection to them and have fully assimilated to the culture/belief of their oppressors (European/US gov). This is why that conversation ororo had with tchalla about slavery was so moving to me.

    I think Sinister in this book has jumped the shark. I'm not really into Gillan's Sinister in the first place, but at least remember he's a deranged Victorian scientist at heart. His voice here was too modern/dumb. The QC and Storm in particular were displayed as imbeciles, and the whole set up of this team is preposterous. The fact that none of the telepaths could see into Alex's mind to see what's going on before sending him off on Sinister's errands was the height of PIS. On a surface level, the issue was well constructed enough, but with consideration, it didn't work for me at all. All a matter of taste in the end. To each their own.

    It felt like Hickman's Sinister, the same one from Powers of X

    I know there would have been at least 40-50 issues without her(as she was on the X-Treme book, and had already left a few issues before that during Lobdell's Eve of Destruction), but I can't think of an entire 100 issues of Uncanny that she wasn't in at least briefly(such as the later Uncanny issues, with the Utopia/SF era, she would still cameo from time to time despite being in Wakanda more often than not).

    Hickman does a better impression of Gillan's Sinister than Wells does, I'll say that much.

    yea if I get the time I may try to go back and verify the exact number. it started around the time bishop became one of the main cast members and then when he left the team became mostly if not all white.

    Yeah, I would put this up there with X-Force and Marauders.

    WHAT??? Hellions was really good.

    I will say only a few of the characters voice was not grasped correctly.

    exactly. I know Scott's pulled rank on them like this before and will no doubt do it again. its nice to see storm being respected as a leader while Scott's around, hasn't happened much in recent years

    I didnt mind ororo showcasing her leadership but considering the context (Scott's brother) it seemed she was a bit harsh. I would imagine she would be more sympathetic.
