    Havok straight-up poured cosmic radiation into a dude and he didn't melt or combust. I'm impressed.

    I think that's mostly an editorial oversight.

    Shame on you for being part of that QC crowd Storm, Jean was unimpressive as well. Only Kurt might be salvageable as an X-Man at the end of this run.

    I have no words.

    3.5/5

    It was a great read served by great art but, I'm sorry to say, the QC is trash at this point.
    Utter, complete, absolute moral trash.

    Here's what mutant "justice" looks like. Double standardized and hypocritical. Bravo.

    Writers don't read each other books... there is lots of violence on Marauders with zero consequences

    People have been talking about krakoa failure of justice system since Sabretooth judgement

    I hope ororo and Jean didn't agree with Sinister overseeing the team at least

    We didn't see who vote what. Jean and Storm reaction to Scott it can go both ways. They might try to agree with Sinister as a way to protect Alex from a harsh punishment.
    We don't know but they have blame on what happens after.

    This psylocke is kwannon not Betsy, she doesnīt do lobotomization is not her style, thatīs why Scott asked her to go easy on Alex

    I am glad Xavier didnīt, it would only not work in the long term and make them even more crazy, itīs also one less complain from some fans XD

    It worked when Psylocke(OG) did it on Mystique. She's been far less psychotic and more trustworthy since then

    She's kinda working with Destiny to bring down the whole Island.

    DoX doesn't even have one year of existence, barely half a year in fact - if the editors are already losing track of who does what in their books, it's just unbelievable.
    I Don't like the alternative of them knowing of these discrepancies yet allowing them to occur, that'd be worse.
    Anyway, in-universe, that's textbook two-speed justice. Maybe two-speed justice is the standard for mutant justice, this looks bad either way.
    Storm and Jean lost a lot of credibility in those couple of panels, came off as hypocrites like the rest of their council(wo)men.

    Destiny is dead so she isnt working with her. Whether she actually brings down the Island remains to be seen but she isnt completely unjustified as she's been used, manipulated and lied to time and time again since Xavier approached her about Krakoa. She's been playing by the roles and genuinely working alongside the X-men in a way that she hasnt in the past. Anything she does to retaliate will be solely on him for messing with her head and undoing the work that Psylocke did. A person can only be pushed so far until they snap and I think Xavier is pushing her to her limits

    Good for you if you Don't care about "human" justice, just don't go talking about the righteousness of mutantkind after making such a post though.

    The variety in which they treat people between books is... yeah it's wild.

    Considering how shady their treatment of Creed was (though if anyone deserved it, it was him) right from the beginning and the moral ambiguity of this entire set up, I'm hesitant to rush to "editorial oversight" here when the Quiet Council is likely to just be a flawed, hypocritical creation.

    I'm not thinking this will lead to a downfall for Krakoa entirely, but likely that the QC won't last forever.

    I hope we see elections in the future. It's been hinted at that the QC is temporary.
