    Magneto taught the O5. He was their mentor throughout X-men Blue

    But that's not the actual O5, that's time displaced alternate universe versions plucked in to the timeline. The actual X-Men of 616 fought Magneto in the old days.

    No, it is the original. Did you read Extermination? Im guessing not bc the teen O5 were 616 versions and returned to their past. The current adult O5 have all their memories from their time in the future and its been referenced at least with Jean, Bobby and Scott. Bobby calling Magneto boss isnt weird bc it further acknowledges their history

He's being presented and celebrated as a hero while dressing in his villainous aspect.

    A great issue and a really great distillation of Magneto's incredible awesomeness and charisma. We get to see the Magneto the hermit meditating in calm, Magneto the tired warrior (who says that his daring is his greatest failing), Magneto the brilliant general, Magneto the political mastermind (his crack about using military satellites that "aren't supposed to exist and we aren't supposed to know of"), Magneto the hero, and above all Magneto the badass.
    Iceman know a good top when he sees one..

    Seems Bobby found what he was looking for.

    He went from a Mofo named Romeo, to Daken, to Christian Frost this is questionable.

    How much you liked the issue depends on how much you like Magneto. Most of the crowd here loves him, so it makes sense that they love this issue.

    I can't think of a good reason why they needed that absurd combination just to get Magneto metal to win here. Hell, Iceman alone should have been able to win the day. This was just a convoluted scheme to let one of Hickman's favorite look badass. And I guess nobody has any problems with Exodus indoctrinating children. Real heroes.

    As for why the Cotati seem like chumps, its inconsistent writing. In the main series and other tie ins, the Cotati have a huge variety of powers and apocalyptic weaponry. They can grow their own armies rapidly and parasitically control people by implanting plants in them. Every other team involved is scrambling to fight them all over the world, and resources are stretched thin. Here, the Cotati do none of the things that make them powerful and could easily be swapped out with any generic aliens. Not to mention that the amount of firepower the mutants have in this one spot is absurd.

    This was a GREAT ISSUE.

    I loved EVERYTHING about it. I’m interested in these Omega Lvl Power Combos. And Magma and Magneto stole the show for me. I LOVED IT.

    Clearly, the X-Men are more capable of holding off Plant People unlike Wakanda and The Avengers LOL.

    We already know that we are going to forgett about this creatures in two months after the event is over.
    And it feels that way even though half of the tie-in books got cancelled. Marvel should really stop forcing all of their books to tie into these events.

    Great issue. I love Magneto. Only disappointment was that I thought for sure Black Tom would be using his powers on the invading trees...

    Great issue. Magneto showed how bad ass he still is. I thought it was going to be an actual fight.

    Like to know how the game turned out?
