    Given that they've just pointed out that telepathy doesn't work on the plants (or on the old ladies of Hordeculture), I'm not sure what the Cuckoos think they are going to do (and why only three of the five bothered to show up...).
    They are probably there to feed Krakoa with psyonic energy so that the island can counteract cotati plants.

    See the last Astonishing X-Men run for the Shadow King's spider legs and general spider-related imagery.

    The psychics are there to empower/feed the Krakoa roots that are coming from the gate.

    It would be nice to have a magazine explaining the motivation of certain villains ... some dialogues, and jokes about their achievements in the past

    I really loved this issue! Super enjoyable and I dig Hordeculture so much. Hope they stick around for awhile.

    This issue is a turn-your-brain-off action romp. It's all about the fact pace and constant jokes. Magik'd dialogue is off , the demons are just there for spectacle, even the 'this is immune to psionic powers' line makes no sense because there were no psionic powers being used, but it's not supposed to make sense since it's supposed to be as stupid as plants vs zombies sounds.

    Since we usually never see them in groups of 5 on Krakoa, I've always thought that the other two go around the island and do multiple tasks by themselves when a "Three in One Formation" is deployed somewhere. I'd expect the black dress Cuckoo to be there for important stuff though.

    That said, I do hope they all appear in this.

    Weird. I feel like we've seen them quite a bit as a quintet since Dawn of X started. We just got that in Cable, Wolverine and their last appearance in Maraurders

    Weren't they mostly in groups of 3 in Marauders? And I think they were 3 in both their HoX appearances.

    If it weren't for Dani it's so white it'd look like a Trump rally

    As I said in another thread, switch out Quentin for Sunspot, and it would be a definite buy for me.
