    Hellions is gone and so is the writer(IIRC).It was fun while it lasted.
    SWORD is good but the start was bogged by KIB and it jumps focus from character to character a lot.Still one of the better comics out there.
    X-men is great.It's writing is mediocre though, it's the art that makes it so good.

    None of them(except maybe SWORD) came close to Hickman's level of storytelling.Specially in HOX/POX.

    She is also getting all the privilieges other's council members get.It's just that there rule is no Pre-cogs, it's not personal.As for council seat I agree, then again why do they send only 3 mutants to Ochis again and again and again when they have many more in both number and power.Pretty sure they can destroy Orchis and Nimrod pretty easily.So there are a few plot holes IG.

    You bring up a good point. Why DID they make her part of the ruling council? Given what Moira told them, it makes no sense to do so, and we have seen why. The only reason I can come up with is that they thought if they didn't that maybe she would would work against Krakoa from the start. I don't think it made any narrative sense to have put her In a position of power.

    Moira doesn't want Destiny around. We can suspect why.

    Chiiile, don't test me. lol. No, I did not start via Bendis, but I unabashedly love what he and the writers that followed suit did with Jean and the rest of the O5, tbh.

    The recent Hickman interview on off panel has so much insight

    I agree that Mystique should never have been given a council seat; she brings nothing of value to the table, why Xavier and Magneto thought that it was a good idea is beyond me. I think Selene should have been given that seat. And Xavier and Magneto only agreed to not bring Destiny back because Moira was opposed to it, but they also said the no-precog ban was a temporary thing. I do find it amusing that Xavier and Magneto are called arrogant for sidelining and not listening to Moira but here they are criticize for listening to and doing exactly what Moira wanted.
