    This issue was good. It's an exciting time to be a fan of Namor, Black Swan, and Cyclops!

    I didn't mean to rustle the Bendis haters. I still like Hickman more than Bendy for his epic scope and storytelling, I just miss Bendis chit chat. I think I'm alone on this one. Hickman chit chat is so clinical, even kids and brain damaged villains speak like college professors.

    Not really arguing that Hickman doesn't make everyone sound similar (besides some of the characters with some distinct personalities,, they all sound kinda the same) but Bendis did exactly the same thing, except he made everyone sound like Ultimate Spider-Man.

    What? Maybe you should go back and watch The Wire.

    The Phoenix Egg is Scott's plan for saving "his" people from the final incursion. That's what everyone is doing in this issue: Trying to find a way to get their people through the final incursion (and if the Egg bring back Jean as White Phoenix, I give it more chance of success than Reed and T'Challa Noah Ark).

    No sign of Doom in this issue?

    Does anyone have any idea of what stark is going to be up to now that he escaped from the necropolis?

    I liked it a lot though I'm liking the whole story and am enamored by Hickmans writing. The art was on point. I don't coincide with the flat resonance, I thought there was great character development happening in this issue from several characters. In fact more so than there was set-up and less of that and more plot string, which is essential to structure.

    This was pretty great, i enjoyed Hickman's Cyclops quite a bit. He comes off sounding somewhat unhinged and dangerous. It felt like Bobby and Sam were a little afraid of him.

    I'm guessing the Phoenix will play an important role in creating Battleworld.

    When did he escaped? I missed that.

    I'm a fan of Cyclops but I have to admit that he was well sinister this time.

    I do not know what he intends but is certainly not play the hero. I think he wants to start from scratch in some way after all the Phoenix represents change and a fresh start from the destruction of what is old.

    A Noah's ark?

    I would not say exactly a way not to lose but it's still a good answer to preserve the species on Earth. The problem is who will be left behind and who will make the choices?

    Well given how the X-men have been acting lately would you blame them ?

    That kinda sounds like that World Worm thing from Legion's XL. Maybe the thing inside gathers the mutants in its flames and then...profit?
