    As I've said before, Bendis is a bit hit and miss for me.

    Luckily, this was one of those good times! Enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. And the time travel thing, it actually makes sense. I was worried it would just randomly happen or something.

    And there are a number of Apes more intelligent then some humans (birth defect, brain damage, etc), doesn't change the fact we consider ourselves superior to apes. Hawkeye is the way he is due to intense training and practice, Toad is the way he is due to being born that way. His natural inherent agility is way beyond anything a base line human would be capable of without intense training, right there that makes him inherently superior to base line humans, Hawkeye made himself superior to base line humans through intense training, Toad was just born that way.

    Beast going to back to bring the 05 Scott back instead of preventing Wanda from going coo coo for cocoa puffs makes as much sense as when Hope wanted to leave with the Avengers.
    I'm sure he's run the calculations. Preventing Wanda going batcrap would most likely just create an alternate timeline.

    Remember, the last thing he's looking to do in this case is create a divergent reality. That doesn't help the current 616.

    It's probably the whole Doctor Who plot device of a "Fixed Point In Time", and can't be changed without causing a bigger mess.

    He said "elite" because of their extra power, it doesn't mean he believes mutants are superior to humans.

    Mutants are superior to humans. Deal with it fanbois. It's called evolution. Maybe your momma didn't teach it to you in homeschool.

    No. He believes. As was noted in Infinity Crusade. See following scan:

    Okay, this was a great read. I really wish the time travel portion wasn't a part of it because everything else about this book so far seems awesome. Hopefully those awesome parts can just transfer on over to Uncanny when it reboots.

    But isn't this study made by scientist who are...by definition....not as smart as ones in the past. Agriculture and cities helped? I always thought glasses did. Take away glasses and Darwinism will come back to the fore.

    Evolution doesn't necessarily lead to superiority. That's one of the first things you're told when you're taught it.

    Plus i think he was trying to get across the its not a bad thing to be a Mutant, and just because ur Mutant doesn't mean u should be oppressed or treated as something lesser. He's not advocating Mutant dominance, but freedom and rights.

    Intelligent design, which mutants are the result of usually tends to though. The universe literally declared it wanted mutants to replace humans what with the Phoenix acting like it did, can't think of a better argument then that.

    Perhaps, wouldn't but bringing the O5 back also may create an alternate universe too? If the the O5 found out what they did when they 'grew up'? (Well, Scott and Jean at least)
