    Default Uncanny Avengers #2 *Spoilers*

    - The issue begins with Wolverine at the site of Avalanche's attack. He's deep in thought feeling terrible about Scott's murder of Professor X and how mutant and human relations are as bad as they ever were.

    - The Avengers are cleaning up the rubble. Captain America tells Logan that he's putting together an Avengers team comprised of mutants and humans. Logan notes that Captain America has picked just the good looking mutants to which Cap agrees but notes that Havok (the leader) is a good person and leader and is someone that can publicly front the team.

    - There are TV broadcasts all around the world and there's tons of anti-mutant propaganda. Cue scenes of people killing mutants all around the world. Then we see the TV broadcasts are being influenced by one of Red Skull's cronies, Honest John, the living propaganda.

    - We see Rogue in chains, two of the Red Skull's men, a lady made of water and the Turtle man from the first issue (I can't remember their names) are trying to feed Rogue. Rogue absorbs the power of the water lady, briefly fights the cronies and teleports away to find the Scarlet Witch.

    - Wanda is on a bed with the Red Skull standing over her (he notes that she's a jew, a gypsy and a mutant, so beautiful but so deceptively human). She wakes up and freaks out but he calms her down. He tells Wanda how his body was cloned 70 years ago only to be revived when necessary.

    - Red Skull uses his telepathy (his brain has been fused with Charles Xavier's own) to get into her head to turn her against mutant kind (again). He plans to use her powers to wipe out mutant kind all over again. Red Skull leaves Wanda alone while she's spouting nazi gibberish.

    - Rogue appears behind Wanda and attacks her.Rogue absorbs a bit of her power but does not know how to use it. Wanda chases after Rogue but they are both stunned when they discover Xavier's lobotomized corpse. Rogue breaks down crying and remembers when she first joined the X-men. She also vows to kill the Red Skull

    - The issue ends with the Skull walking in with his 'team' behind and noting that with Xaviers brain fused to his own, all they will do is beg.

    Remender is really going for the slow burn with this book. Not to much happened and we haven't actually reached the meat of the story.

    The art was pretty good but some pages looked a bit rushed.

    All in all, 7 out of 10.

    This comic gets a 10/10, just for the appearance of the Skull's old swastika sweatsuit.

    I'm not sure.

    I'm still trying to find that out.

    Well, if Xavier DOES eventually come back, he's gonna have a little bit of Nazi in him. It would make the Magneto/Xavier dynamic a little more potent, at least.

    I'm really not following this book, but this here caught my attention:

    Therapy more times than not won't do a whole lot of good against telepathic mind control.

    If therapy ever worked in the Marvel universe, I don't know about it.

    Besides, all shrinks in the Marvel Universe are evil anyway.

    There were two exceptions but Doc Samson turned evil before he died and Brother Voodoo just died.

    She didn't nor does she have a problem with being a mutant in the first issue, she simply called out the X-men plain and simple.
