    I'm a sucker for these moments.



    And I liked the references to Rogue's history with the HE. A bit more of a subdued issue but I love the team dynamic and that Ev/Laura moment was beautiful. Pepe knocked it out of the park.

    I honestly would have been more convinced if someone had just come up with a statistic like, “50% of mutants killed in the Genoshan genocide have been spotted in the last few months”. Cause like you said the main supes BEEN going through a revolving door of life and death.

    No one should be surprised about a resurrection but they always come with an explanation. Cyclops will probably come up with a good answer (the phoenix did it!) but that will probably expose other mini secrets.

    Also, was Cyclops the comedic relief in todays story or what?

    Another solid issue. Duggan does a good job with giving us little character moments. He still needs to do better by Wolverine and Sunfire though. They don't seem to get as much attention as the others.

    I do wish this book had arcs, and not these one off issues. I know they all play a part of the overall plot, but like I keep saying, its like you can feel the time crunch in this book. They have a limited time, and Duggan has a lot he wants to do.

    I forgot to mention how much I love Polaris and Rogue as a duo.

    It's only issue 3, you can't expect for everyone to have a big moment.

    I feel that creates this pressure that every issue every character must have a huge moment.

    I also don't see this as a one shot story. This is still part of the same arc as far as I'm concerned.

    Hickman's issues were one shots. These are not.

    If Duggan does what he did in Uncanny Avengers, then all the characters will get their moment.

    If he does what he did in Marauders, then its bad. But so far all signs point to this being more like Uncanny Avengers.

    I loved Scott's jokes while fighting.
    The telepathic "rock, paper, scissors" was cute too.

    The servents Of H.E. are called New-Men or Ani-Men, right? not the Evolutionary Guard. Or did they get a new team name?

    Slim is always the comic relief.

    I just want to say that I loved the issue, I had sooooo much fun reading it. The writing feels fresh and dynamic (and fun!), and the art was supreme. Pepe & Marte are the best duo. I'm very satisifed with the characterizations, surely some characters have been more highlighted in the issue than others, but I have high hopes that every member is going to have their moment to shine. The subplot of Ben Urich is very intriguing, do you think that the docs this mysterious person handled to him describe the resurrection protocols? Heroes coming back from the dead are not that unusual, but the process The Five do surely are shocking (and scary) for the world.

    New Men is what they are, like how the X-Men are a team of mutants. The Animen were an earlier team.

    The real important question here for me: Are Jean and Scott back to their boring super-monogamous straighty couple lifestyle or is Logan still part of their sex life?

    Feels like someone at Marvel put their foot down and with Hickman leaving we are back to some good old prude U.S. love life depictions from the 1950s...at least when it comes to our main mutant power cishet couple Jean and Scott.

    just wondering...

    Overall I enjoyed the issue and of course Larraz continues to display phenomenal art. Definitely interested in what HE is gonna do with Synch's blood. While I'm sure HE's comments in regards to power levels are gonna induce tantrums I absolutely loved it.

    This was awesome. Wonder if we’ll see Storm and Cable when Feilong goes to Planet Arakko (Mars)? I hope so.

    Fantastic issue. Fun, action-packed and with killer art. 10/10
