    Highlight of the book was seeing my glorious Regan strutting her stuff out of the Gateway.

    This issue was a let down overall.

    The first issue was WAY better by far.

    From my understanding Amahl Farouk is a mutant but the actually SK is...something else. I wonder if its just Farouk sans SK?

    The real saving grace for this issue is Magik. While I agree she was out of character this issue, its always fun to see her go all out.

    I agreed that Horticulture took too much panel time, but I'm biased cause I'm not feeling them as supervillians. A menace perhaps, but not supervillians. However, I'd bet good money those ladies get their own title pretty soon.

    I know I'm probably overthinking this, and they were only included because they make for an interesting visual, but the spider legs are weird. We've only ever seen them as the Shadow King's astral form, which suggests to me that this is the Shadow King and not just Farouk. But also, why would they modify the body to look like that? How would they know that the Shadow King would want the spider legs on his physical form as well as his astral form, it's not like he had a will.

    Maybe Shadow King returned from the Astral Plane in a separate way from the Resurrection Protocols

    When Xavier took over Fantomex's body and became X, he was somehow able to physically alter his appearance to become a younger Charles. If Shadow King possessed someone, maybe he was able to change their body to look like a giant spider-centaur

    Psychics are wield like that

    It could be an illusion, may not be shadow king at all.

    Overall, I really liked this except two things: Explodey Boy wasting time and Magik's way out of character dialogue.
