    interesting enough issue but wasn't blown away like i was hoping.
    i guess the plans for storm is diplomat for the sol system and she lives on mars now, which is fine.
    the franklin part was interesting more so for magneto. "no more pretenders" and "not family" hits more at home for him.
    not showing mister m was odd. they know he's in otherworld and his refusal scene was off panel. just would have been cool to see him.
    the arakii causing trouble on earth makes sense but we only ever saw or heard about it in cable and it was very small scale there. here it seems like it was a huge deal and it was really important to deal with right now.
    the terraforming mars thing was cool and a great art showcase as well as seeing some cool omega level powers, but it was very predictable.
    i see why steve said solved one problem while creating a bigger one to scott. naming mars arakko and the capital of the solar system would probably upset people. also are humans allowed free passage to the diplomatic ring?

    X-Man creates alternate realities, Franklin was creating worlds (before he was a proven false god). Even other warpers not sided with mutants are known to create planets, realities ect. IDK it just seems like they were toned down is it just me.
    It was not that long ago we saw Nate just warping whatever he wanted to on Earth, so this definitely feels a bit pretentious. That is probably the point.

    Aren't the realities created by reality warpers always famously unstable?

    Like, they usually end up destroying themselves with unusual ease.
    Only if that is the only out the writer decides on.

    Oh impressive little feat for Bobby did anyone else catch how he was the only 1 who didn't need the helmet to breath on Mars before all the terraforming? That man might really be immortal good on him.

    You know, if at least half of the forty weekly alien invasions that Earth suffers start heading to Mars, if I were human I would be happy that Mars was the capital of the Solar System.

    Like, maybe the next time the Cotati or Knull or whatever don't fuck New York. That's a win.

    LOL, yeah exactly.

    It would be funny if Magneto personally is wrecked by Franklin when Krakoa falls
    That's good to know.So many books feel so far away from Hickman's most basic values.I am glad they colaborate.

    I feel they did that to Franklin because Krakoa was already a mess of op beings.
    Franklin and Krakoa stuff happened in FF/X-men and FF.Both had nothing to do with Hickman.

    I know Im biased but throughout I was kind of wondering why it wasnt Storm. Shes the one who seems to be staying there and serving as a diplomat, so why not have her be the one to come up with it? Her connection with life and nature makes her an easy fit to want to bring a planet back to life, plus she is theatrical enough to carry a full issue of narration.

    I've been saying for a while that this new definition of omega-level actually places limits on what the omegas can do. It used to mean limitless.

    .
    This is my fear that other writers wreck his master plan like when his Avengers run kept getting derailed when all of the core heroes kept being depowered or replaced.

    I mean, he hasn't covered himself in ice for a long time, he turns into ice. He doesn't even have internal organs when he transforms.

    Yeah.They must have built New York back 1000+ times already.At this point we have that cities destruction more than people pirate comics.
    And the city is full of secret basses of heroes and villains.
    I can't imagine why anyone would want to live there.

    Like I know this is supposed to be all grand and majestic and all that.

    But i can't help but cynically feel like they went "BEGONE EVENT CHARACTERS, TO THE SPACE IRRELEVANCY GHETTO YOU GO!"

    Arrako has barely done a god damn thing since it came and now they're chucking them to Mars and doing what Hickman did back in Avengers

    And I'm supposed to be all "Wow" over this shit?

    It must be very cheap I guess.

    Ultimately I think it is a good thing limits were placed on the omega mutants. This issue would have been boring if one or two mutants could have done it all by themselves. I prefer to see mutants working together with their individual talents to achieve great things together.

    The omega definition definitely placed limits on some like Exodus and Jean by making only one of their powers at the omega level. I think clearing up the murky definition and placing reasonable limits on the characters was the goal with re-defining the omega level definition.
