he talked them into fighting among themselves.
i didn't know the PF turns you into a C-list villain.
meanwhile, I'm kinda sad about Emma.
on the one hand, it looks like she crossed the line which will turn her into the last boss.
on the other hand, the scene right before makes it clear she desperately wants to AVOID doing what she ended up doing, and even reaches out to Scott for help (which he, being the people person that he is, completely failed to see).
its sad in a way that's hard to describe, as she seems to be the only P5 member who actually recognizes the PF's influence on her, but is incapable of resisting it.
and now that she has twice as much power as before...
In any case, it could go either way. I think they will give us a phoenix v phoenix fight, but how far?
As far as Emma... yeah, I do think there's something symathetic and sad about what's happening there. She's at least trying (and failing) to stop it. In a weird way I'm more bothered by Scott ignoring her obvious pleas for help than I am of Emma who's the one actually doing the killing.
poor issue for colossus and illyana. they may as well have been mindless lackeys the way spider-man convinced them to take each other out.
as if he doesn't allow himself to get distracted by anything to prevent himself from slipping.
that said, i also was pretty sad about him ignoring her cries for help in favor of chasing off after Hope (who's significance at this stage is rather odd).
She's either the way to restart the mutant gene (if Scott still cares about that) or she's the potential weapon the Avengers will use against what's left of the P5.
Plus, I think Scott is just ticked off not only over the fact that the Avengers tried taking her from him, but over the fact that she chose to leave. He's taking it a bit personally I think.
One of the worst issues of a comic I've read all year. I'm not a fan of Colossus or Magik but i cringed big time at how badly they were handled.
Adults struggle desperately with fiction, demanding constantly that it conform to the rules of everyday life when the answer is obvious to the smallest child: because it's not real. - Grant Morrison
"did i do good, uncle ben?" GTFO
I wouldn't say Emma is totally evil now. We know that she, unlike scott, is aware that something is corrupting her, followed by a scene later where she gives in, but at the same time its an incident involving a single hit and run driver and not emma shutting down every avenger's brain like she says she can do, and struggling not to do.
