    But then they went and killed a mutant to access a Krakoan gate, which belongs to a sovereign, UN-recognized country. So as far as I'm concerned their weirdly civil and proper ending of relations was just a front. They were in full attack mode as soon as they left the Gala.
    Boop! Krakoa forever!

    Rictor is really insufferable when written by Tini. Krakoa has been commiting acts of war for some time, but everyone let it slide because they give them drugs

    This one is hard to know if it is queerbait, maybe the writer just wanted to show friendship. You see a friend being sad and dance with them to elevate the spirits.
    Only reading the script is possible to say if it is queerbait.

    It doesn't look like the writer think Betsy did wrong things

    I think Tini had Betsy make some strategic mistakes so that it would be imperative that she prove herself by addressing them.
    Oh, absolutely.
    We are MUTANT...One people. One tribe. One family...Krakoa and Arakko, FOREVER!!!
