    It doesn't help that some of the X-Men villains are advocating for things like race war or survival of the fittest, which is also basically just another version of a race war.

    I'd say pretty much every supervillain has that kind of mindset. Whether they're humans, mutants or aliens, more often than not they just come up with some pretentious excuse for their distorted sense of moral superiority to try to justify their atrocities. Lex Luthor is by all accounts a racist, he just bangs on about Superman's powers being a threat to the world to try to cover his own personal xenophobia towards "the alien".

    And it fits because Sinestro orchestrated Hal becoming Parallax, so Sinestro becoming Parallax himself feels thematically fitting.

    I feel the same way, I'd have liked if it stayed his look even when he wasn't using Parallax.

    Nah I like it better on Hal. Banks designed it for Hal but it looks good regardless even Kyle. I don't know how Hal gets his armor back without breaking bad but someday he will.

    The way Hal's mask is drawn looks really evil.

    I'm always amazed at how much people loved 'Logan'. I found it sad and depressing and pretty insulting to the entire X-franchise.

    Basically lets remember... Professor Xavier, the greatest advocate that mutants shouldn't be judged on their potential danger and only on their actions... Loses control of his powers and literally murders the X-men and a whole bunch of other Humans. Then becomes a rolling bomb who can wipe out hundreds anytime he has 'an episode'. Basically after he was 'tricked' back in X2 to use cerebro to murder all humans everywhere... but yeah, THIS was the endgame. The best and brightest and most noble was literally too dangerous to be allowed to live.

    #humanswereright #Sentinelsforever

    Say whatever you want about 'real world alogories' and whatnot... but in the fictional marvel universe?? Yeah, there are way too many evil mutants out to wipe out humanity... and too many GOOD mutants who may do it accidentally to really dismiss.

    I love how Grant writes Hal Jordan.
