    Well yeah, I got that. I also got the impression from the recap and other posts that he intends on trying to kill it in the future though.

    Did Namor look like he was going to leave anything to mop up?

    He’s a hunter. A predator. Stryfe says as much about him in his Stryfe Files during X-Cutioner’s Song (loved those!). He says the same about Bishop, who at present is being criminally underused in the Dawn (now Reign) of X era.

    But I found Logan’s monologue highly interesting and, yeah, maybe a little disturbing. But he knows what he is.

    A perfectly average issue. The only thing I really enjoyed was how Wolverine was sinking faster, which kinda seems logical for once.

    So wait, Xavier and X-Factor know Kid Omega died, because they engaged his resurrection, but they don't know the circumstances,or at least aren't looking into it? I mean it could be off panel but I find this strange..Rasputin is cooking something nasty with Xeno and they seem clueless.Beast is totally inept.He seems more keen to reverse engineer weapons than protecting Krakoa, if beast knows and is playing a long game it wouldn't surprise me but anything less than is weird because Omega Red is a pawn against Dracula but there is no gameplan against Xeno ,yet they struck first.

    I may be forgetting something, but I think they don't have many clues regarding Xeno, because they don't know who is the Peacock man and don't have much to do. We could assume they are investigating off panel until comes an arc about it. Sage should be doing that.

    Quentin's situation might be explained in the next few issues. The solicitations for the next 3 issues have him in a prominent role.

    The creature was with the other infected animals. Kind of like a rabid animal situation not a trophy hunting situation. I can understand your confusion based on my review of the data page entry though.
    You brought back Wolverine

    The CBR Community Standards a.k.a how to get along.

    Ah, yeah that makes a lot more sense. Thanks!

    Could have been, like, an ironic kiss of death sort of moment? 'Cause I don't recall if Phoebe is the specific cuckoo who had to burn out her telepathy and kill herself to quell Quentin's drug-and-telepathy-fueled 'Riot at Xaviers' or 'just one of the surviving sisters who felt her die in their mind but this seems super out of character...

    On first read, I didn't really enjoy it because I kept thinking this has nothing to do with the 'mutant CIA' premise. I enjoyed it more when I thought of it more as a generic super-hero fight.

I've been reading X-books for over 30 years and this is the first time I've felt this apathetic, like I'm just reading out of a sense of duty.

    But yeah, it was a decent issue. It just isn't jiving with me anymore. But all the books feel that way at the moment, Hellions is the only one that seems to leave any real impression.
    I feel exactly the same... even down to Hellions being the only book that I seem to enjoy.

    The "mutant CIA" angle definitely turned out to be a big red herring, as there's pretty much no spycraft or black ops going on. Charitably, they're the mutant Keystone Cops.

    This may not be a CIA plotline, but I think it has a lot of potential. Krakoa is an enourmes living being with big powers. He being able to create some cancerous bits with big potential to be fatal is very interesting. It is like, the mutants may be in paradise, but they can't forget the nature of this paradise and must be always looking for something rotten under the surface. And it gives them the oportunity to use it as weapons. I don't trust Beast with it, because he could use that against innocents, but it could be cool if some science mutants could use it against the evil machines.

Someone need to stand up to Beast whom he actually respects as an intellectual peer.
    If there's a future issue of Wolverine where he goes all Ahab for a bit, I'd be down with that.
    I do wish the team had recruited Loa or Lifeguard or some other mutant with underwater capabilities, but I know X-force's work is technically classified.
    yeah...I think X-Force lost it "covert and classified" card after Krakoa's second or third invasion or maybe the Russian mutant inquisition

    as someone already said, this feels like one of the more messy X-men teams we have currently going that don't really feel like they mesh well in chemistry as well as intended role, only beaten by Excalibur's lineup. Wolverine, Beast, Sage and Domino id say fit in the role the book is advertised to serve, Quentin initially felt like he fit with being the guy who can get the info they need in but he then ends up being quite flashy and also dies a lot, Jean played her role well for what Quentin ought to be but as we already saw her nature conflicts with it so she's not part of it now, Colossus is advertised but hardly feels like a member while Tom's role is more of someone to defend then go out like the others. remember also that this team is supposed to be like their only official team and is even given more authority than the others like being able to instruct the 5 in the resurrection but they feel sloppy and don't look all that impressive/strong.
