    Couldn't Franklin reach out to the many telepaths on Krakoa in case of emergency?

    I wonder if X of Swords is why the gate won't work for Franklin? And not his burnt out X gene?

    The Nullifer seems to be involved in the issue just solicited for January.

    Melody's got her powers back - it was her we saw doing the Crucible!

    Looking at today's FF solicits, Psi-Lord might be returning. What that means for Franks is not yet known. It could be that Psi-Lord returns to 616 or current Frank starts to become him.

    This is all speculation from a gloved hand. lol

    Well...at least his family will stop thinking he’s a ‘freak’ or ‘weirdo’, now that he’s a normal human again, and not a mutie...

    Whee...
    It's probably for the best he needed to be humbled maybe now he'll develop an actual personality.

    It just...left a bad taste in my mouth. Like Sue‘s whole devolution into a bigoted Karen during the recent F4/X-Men crossover.

    That said, I am intrigued by Cormorant and Helmsman and what they’re after/up to.

    The whole ‘beating the minority out of an ‘uppity’ teenager’ thing, though?

    Not a fan.
    That absolutely did not happen with Sue.

    The straw grasping is on par with the pearl clutching.

    Oh my god not everything Sue does is some 8 layers deep metaphor. She just thinks the earring is ugly

    You treat it as if something like this wasn’t a plot point built up within the story. When it came to Franklin literally the only story we were given every 5 seconds was about how his powers were fading and him being angsty about it. Meanwhile his family was doing what a good family does and remind him that his powers aren’t the end all be all thing about him and that no matter what happened, they loved him all the same. I highly doubt that Slott is just gonna leave him powerless as the story was built into this run. This just seems to be him getting nerfed due to the fact that them sitting on a literal universe level reality warper pretty much kills any stakes.

    Franklin shoulda stayed his ass in his room. Reed slept on Valeria and look what happened. Franklin tapped out and Valeria saved the day.
    I loved this issue. Never read FF on a regular basis before, but I loved this story and RB Silva can do no wrong in my eyes. Those pages were beautiful!!

    Who specifically in Franklin's family thinks he's a freak and or a weirdo?

    It's best he doesn't get his powers back to the same level. They'll just write themselves back into a corner.

    Agreed. I think I'll actually read the rest of this arc.
