    PAD and Bendis just read the classics.

    I totally agree. What an amazing read. I got to the end and went "noooo" -- I want to read more. A perfect blend of drama and humor. The art is beautiful. I really like how fast Jean Grey caught on to her telepathy -- this wasn't drawn-out or milked for effect. The mark of an excellent, experienced writer. Special kudos for putting Logan to sleep in the middle of the floor. I also like how Bendis is not -- as a writer -- taking sides, or so it seems to me, regarding the stupidity or brilliance of bringing the O5 back from the past. Crazy "blue Beast" presents his argument, and Jean lets us know, Logan agrees with him. But some of us readers can think, along with some of the characters, *What a stupid idea.* We don't presume Revolutionary Scott is going to "cause" the mutant apocalypse, but rather, stop it. And what can "young Scott" do to change his mind? It may be, that editorially, Marvel will eventually reset the X-Men back to boring, kiddy-vid status quo. But I hope that never happens, and Revolutionary Scott and the E-Team go on for many years to come.

    I missed Team Cyclops this issue.

    But I like how Jean is portrayed as a little telepathically retarded, but with the telepathic potential of a telepathic Rain Man--Phoenix Savant syndrome. In some ways like nuAngel--but obv. pretty different.

    And I love her hair.

    Looks like young Bobby will come out of the closet and throw a wrench in secret homophobe Kitty Pryde's romance.

He's writing a pitch perfect 616 Kitty so far.
    I agree completely.

    This didn't read like a Bendis comic. It felt full. Satisfying.

    After rereading this I noticed Logan referring to Jean as if she is familiar with him. "Jean, you know that mind stuff doesn't work on..." Creepy doesn't begin to describe it.

    Also young Beast refers to an expert they've called in to help Beast. Is Peter Parker joining the faculty now that he's no longer being Spider-Man and working for the FF?

    They did call Horizon. But that would mean giving Doc Ock access to Beast's future mutation. Octo-Beast.

    But that's the irony here. Is Cyclops trying to prevent a mutant apocalypse from taking place? Absolutely. However, from Beast's point of view, the way Cyclops is going about doing this only serves to hasten the very thing Cyclops is trying to prevent. Cyclops' being more militant and aggressive in protecting mutants from humans and his revolutionary rhetoric in espousing the superiority of mutants while doing so only serves to fan the flames of the very fear, prejudice, and hatred they're trying to protect their fellow mutants from.

    Why the hell is he so pissed at Scott? His plan saved the mutants! If Logan's stupid ass had his way Hope would be dead, mutants would die out, and the Earth probably would have been turned into guacamole

    Yes all scott did was subjugate the earth to his mad whims, killed the professor and escaped into the night leaving a trail of broken bodies that had no part in the "conspiracy" in his mind.

Not that it was a particularly good idea, but this fits the needs of Bendis' scripting to incorporate the young O5 into Marvel NOW!
    No, she helps Scott out because she thinks he's right.

    Her stance on the mutant issue has very little to do with Hank's friendship with Scott.
