    House/Power of X honeymoon period is definitely wearing off for me. It's not so much about the lack of developments for Cyke, but how the mutants' personalities don't feel distinguishable anymore. Especially in the "main" book, where I keep feeling like there's a hive-mind/telepathy shenanigans afoot.
    I think you and I have a very different definition of 'beauty.' But I can appreciate what you're saying.

    And, I definitely agree with you; nobody seems to have a voice, even a distinct personality; I'm finding that their all just...saying things. Like mouth-pieces?

    That's the interesting part. They refer to him as the rock upon which Krakoa is built, so what will happen if/when Scott finally snap and see something that actually turns him against Xavier again? He's the one character being built up with the most potential for becoming a problem in the future. His knowledge of mutants is ever expanding with having all able-bodied mutants as his X-Men. At some point, he'll know a bit of everyone in the entire island. And that knowledge can make all the difference depending on the situation.

    Yes, because he's the only person that has managed to lead a unified mutantkind before, and now has as a job saving people's lives in Krakoa over and over again. Plus, they don't really have anyone that can replace him as neatly, unlike most other positions.

    Eh. Hickman writes what Hickman wants. Granted heís the best writer, and Iím using this as a general term, the X-Men have had in the last 15 years. But he will write the story he wants and at times will make the characters sound weird. Itís why I think heís had a lack of consistency in especially Scottís voice in a few of the issues. Issue 1 was good. 2 was meh. 3 was barely any better. Issue 4 at least gave us some good moments from him. Itís really inconsistent.
    I wrote the book.

    So while I’ve no doubt there will be at least some sitting back and drinking tea at the Marvel governments shifting targets for a while, as an Ex-Teen superhero himself and a charter member of the Champions (and was at last meeting on good terms with them); I wonder if Scott will dip his toe into the mess that is Outlawed?

    What's "Outlawed"? Is that the new annual Marvel crossover event?

    I called it a 'beauty', but I suppose 'genius' is the more accurate term. Basically, Hickman found a way for the X-Offce to have their cake and eat it too-- something they've been trying to do post-AvX.

    Now, no one bats an eyelash at the lack of character conflict between, say, Cyke's on-panel detractors and Cyke, because we're not sure what's in-continuity now because of Moira's involvement in history. Heck, what parts of AvX/Utopia are still canon? What parts of Deadly Genesis-- because, while one can say Vulcan was revived using the Krakoan method, one could also argue he never died in the first place...

    Never forget, Cyke fans~ https://twitter.com/i/status/1246248602768486402

    When will Logan call out Jean for drafting children in her X-Squad?

    The WatXM staff are clear hypocrites for supporting The Crucible~

    Logan lecturing Shulkie about Krakoa is the epitome of hypocrisy.

    Hickman is building towards AvX 2.0 but, this time, the X-Men are actually the villains~

    Hilariously, the X-Men have now fully embraced mutant supremacy and racism against humans.

    Outlawed is the new status quo kicking off in March for Marvel's young heroes that will lead into new books in April like Champions, Power Pack, and New Warriors. The 2020 events are Iron Man 2020, Empyre, an X-Men thing, and maybe a Spider-Man thing.

    Heh, things are coming full-circle. Isn't this just the Superhero Registration Act / whatever that storyline was called, all over again? But now with new faces!

    But, eh, it'd be cool for Cyke to pop in, but I highly doubt it. Methinks DisMarvel are being careful about handling the X-Men now that they've got the movie rights back.

    A valid point, we need more "scott - lorna" moments this year. I will add to the mix Illiana as his best friend.
