    This seems like a fun opportunity to do an inversion of the start of Cable and X-Force, with Cable coming to arrest Havok as a terrorist.

    I'm ok with their Sunspot effects. I suspect getting something that matched his comic book look closely would be pretty hard.

    The worst thing about the way the original body stuff has been brought up is that it's inevitably been followed by a cop-out to avoid addressing how Betsy truly feels about the matter. If an author...

    I'm still surprised the O5 haven't discussed that at all. You'd think at some point one of them would turn to Teen!Beast and say "so, you realise your older self was lying to us the whole time,...

    Only one is a minor, and he was returned to his parents. Unfortunately, this meant he was immediately imprisoned without trial by secretive government security contractors.

    That narration is so clumsy it barely qualifies as English. Bendis at the top of his game, I see.

    Seems to be mostly a marketing thing: number ones sell, therefore publish lots of number ones. There is also an increasing trend to treat writers' runs on books like tv show seasons.

    I think they said about 7 years in an interview somewhere, but I could be wrong.

    I assume this is "Xavier's grandson" from the future. Given how Legacy turned out, it seems to me he's more likely to be a malicious remnant personality of Legion's, which might explain why he ended...

    Well, given that she gets killed by a sentinel in the original Days of Future Past story, it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect that something might happen to her here. I do like that we're getting...

    The panels imply Bishop regrew body parts when he was revived by the future monks. Alternatively, maybe they just decided to pretend the whole cyborg thing never happened because it was such crappy...

    If you're counting general flirting, Nightcrawler and Storm have done a fair bit of it.

    Discrimination against mutants is always there as a background factor, but there are certainly runs that focus more on straight hero action. Which X-Men runs have you been reading so far?

    It was an issue with Spurrier's writing on Legacy as well; he tends to think he's cleverer than he is when taking potshots at common superhero tropes. That said, acting like a hardcase who thinks he...

    To be honest, it's more of a testament to Bishop's strong character history despite the damage Marvel have attempted in recent years. Still, it's great to see both him and Pete Wisdom make strong...

    She's certainly caring, and can be motherly. The issue is with the way she expresses that care. Fretting verbally isn't really her style, nor is being so dismissive about 'action heroing'. Storm is...

    I actually didn't like how Storm was written in it. She seemed overly fussy, and that's very much not Storm's character.

    By far the nastiest hatchet job Marvel have done was the way they treated Bishop in the Messiah series.

    If you're about to start the current run of Uncanny X-Men (volume 3), then you should read the first 5 issues of All-New X-Men before it, as it spins off that series.
