    But not a fleet of war planes.

    I’m just saying they need their own “S.H.I.E.L.D”

    I'm just not sure that can happen. It's not even a matter of technology or numbers, but an issue of there being too many cooks in this kitchen. Who will lead it? Where are its members coming from? Where's the budget coming from? Will it be in too much conflict with other factions?

    I think Krakoa is just too new for this to work yet. We will probably see it in a few years time, though.

    And I just want to say, I don't want Krakoa to fail. I just do not believe in isolationism and this us vs them attitude. It's not making the world a better place, it's just switching who's on top and who's below. And it leaves a lot of people out. Why shouldn't the monster cities around New York have a Krakoa gate flower? Why shouldn't the other marginalized Marvel races be allowed in? Why just allow mutants and fuck everyone else?

    Budget? Alchemy could turn Krakoan land matter into gold (but would he want to help after I vs X?)

    Could be lead by Sabra,Pete Wisdom, and LightBright among others.

    That actually brings up a good point, how does money work here? Because it seems like money is sort of meaningless on Krakoa, which just brings up a point that many mutants are sort of trapped there because they don't have money to begin with.

    That`s why I would like to see more day to day interactions between the X-men in a normal setting, I can see Storm, Jean and Kurt acting tough and even cold on the Quiet Council because they are in front of Apocaypse, Sinister, Shaw, Mystique, Exodus, them being seen as soft would not help to their points being taken seriously on the Council, even Charles kind of tried to use the Sabretooth issue to show how tough he was about their new status quo, but we need to see them without that armor, see what Jean, Storm think about their fellow council members and what they are doing, see charles out of that cerebro helmet outside of an hostile context like the one of X-men 4 to see why he changed his views and I think it would be really fun to see Apocalypse clash on povs with both Magneto and Xavier, with Magneto finding himself on the really strange place of being the middle man between two opposites povs.
    I want to see Magneto and Lorna having a day off, thinking about Genosha and what they can do to protect Krakoa in the event it happens again, etc.

    I liked the idea of different, lest say, political ideologies being fought back and forth on the council, the actual status quo seems to be going in that direction and it would be a nice political thriller to see but first I would like to see some warn hearted moments between mutants so Krakoa feels like a real home and refuge for mutants imo.

    Of course it all it`s built around Moira and her manipulations, Hickman did say HOX is like HOM in the sense that it SEEMS to be made to fail and burn after the ilusion is gone but the thing is that`s has been the X-men story of the past decade so I expect to see that fall but also seeing them healing after it in a way the decimation times never allowed them.
    I liked the X-men comics because in the past, I knew what the characters felt because they exchanged their feelings and impressions (like in a soap) so I felt included in their inner circle. I felt a kinship.

    There, I feel like Hickman deliberately has put a distance between the characters and the readers. The latters could have been more included in the process and in the story but Hickman has chosen not to. Hickman didn't show to his readers how was built Krakoa, and at first, during a long period, he didn't show Xavier without his helmet. There are exchanges but there is a lot of posturing in them… (for the benefit of whom, I wonder… When I read Magneto banging on about 'the humans', he bores me to death…)

    So I'm not sure that your wishes for more insights about how the characters really feel will be executed: if it had been Hickman's intention, he would have done it by now, in my opinion: it is usually in an author's benefit to have his readers in a close relationship with his characters. Instead there is an air of mystery…

    I know it's not the fasciste salute… but it's close enough to my distaste.
