    Sure but it's not really weaponized probably because it's not stable tech or a long-term solution. The "cured" mutants always go back to being mutants.

    Again, no AU really tries to go the route of "de-mutanting" the existing population.

    Wait! Mutants are born from humans!? Why did nobody tell me this!? EVERYTHING I BELIEVED IN IS A LIE!!!

    But seriously with the way some people in the fan base talk about it, it's like mutants can only birth mutants and not the reality that is humans AND mutants can give birth to humans AND mutants.

Its like, they want to just leave and do their own thing, but also, still hang around and mess with everyone else.

    Basically nothing really changes. Instead of "they have their own country and are doing X things around the world" its now "they have their own planet and are doing X things on Earth". The analysis of their actions doesn't really change much. I've complained that the X-men have often felt/sounded like aliens in this relaunch, and I guess its now text

    It was very beautiful and well done, but its just a stupid premise to me. You will never convince me that Arrako matters. It exists entirely to get wiped out in the next big event to make the X-men feel sad and motivated. And sending all the ugly non-human looking mutants off to live with Poochy is a cheap storytelling move.
    From your posts on this thread you seem pretty unhappy with this current run. Why are you still spending money on it?

    The best way to show your displeasure with a product is to not buy it and give feedback on why you decided to stop buying not give them money and complain because they have your money.

    Isn’t the E-Gene supposed to sterilise the baseline population once mutantkind reaches a certain threshold?

    Not sure how it works now that we know the Celestials want mutates

    I'm not spending money. I'm borrowing it from others. I do, in fact, vote with my wallet

    So considering they plopped a psychotic slaver on Avalon’s throne, what tin pot dictator have the QC and the Ring picked to be Regent?

    The Regent will be Storm, a born tyrant.

    She will command a planet whilst Cyclops merely controls a moon.

    So you didn't actually pay for the comic but feel entitled enough to swipe a copy from someone who does care about it enough to use their money pay for it and then be toxic in a thread for people who did pay for it.

    Gotcha.

    i don't remember storm organizing everyone in man thing. she got krakoa to help and then worked with thor to do the weather thing around the planet to clean up. not saying she wont be a good diplomat because she will.
    Iron man stated that she got the avengers krakoans and wakandans to the table and that someone should remind him never go negotiate against storm. She knows her way around words and persuading people plus her power, demeanour and voice all convicted people to do what she wants.

    Really enjoyed the book both in terms of story and art. I'm honestly shocked Marvel has allowed the X-franchise this much latitude.

    Favourite panels... apart from the truly inspired psychic sperm and brain ovum page...

    Yes, I have a cape fetish just like Sinister and Jamie and Exodus.

    Axolotl... er... Sobunar is just as cute and homicidal as I'd hoped!

    Also, "effortlessly"?
    Didn't seem like she was struggling now did it and from the looks of it she wasn't getting amped like the others. So all she did was on her own.

    It balances out with the large group of people who also 'borrowed' it and talk about how cool it was because they did not actually spend 15 minutes and $5 to buy it.
