That seems way too extreme, even Emma.

Also,if Attilan is now a democracy, can the new book really be called "Royals"?

By the way, did this issue have Maximus revealed he has more Terrigen Crystals?

It's AVX all over again.

The people responsible for the mutant genocide get to save the day and get off scot-free, while an X-Man gets to be made the villain and cast out. Because god forbid we have the Disney-team be the bad guys.

Though I love how we saw that Medusa had "Cyclops" killed because she thought it would be easier if he was dead, but it's ok now because it wasn't actually him.

-It's AVX all over again.-

It is. I dunno what it is with trying to villainize major X-men when it doesn't fit their characterization. Both Emma and Scott were fairly ruthless but they were still solid in their moral compasses.

Hopefully it gets undone soon, because bleh.

I like to think it's because he's not really dead. Especially since that would explain why Layla Miller didn't show up when they were burying him.

I...actually kind of like it? In a "so bad it's good" sort of way, but still. It's like Magneto, Hellfire Club fashion and Cyclops all kinda rolled into one. Absolutely ridiculous, but kinda in a good way, IMO.

I don't necessarily like where the story went, mind, but sometimes it's fun to see a "bad guy" wear their badguy on their sleeve, so to speak.

Show some respect Storm. Alchemy died to destroy the first Terrigen cloud. With two of those things the Earth would have been saturated twice as fast and you all would have suffocated long before Beast even realized what was happening. And the Inhumans would have just shrugged their shoulders and said "oops we tried"

And those Inhumans crying because they don't get super powers now just because those pesky mutants want to live on Earth without dying a slow and painful death are hilariously awful inhuman beings

Oh, come on- as the panel before that states, Terrigenesis' been a glorified and normalized part of Inhuman culture for forever.

Confronted with the apparent truth that you'll never get to experience that apotheosis, especially when there's still some of your people around who did- whose first thought would honestly be " well, at least people who aren't us get to continue being ", without at least throwing in " to their fullest extent, unlike us "?

It's kind of a high standard to expect people, when they're hurt, to think first of those who're consequently no longer bleeding.

Come to think of it, wasn't one of the subplots of Bendis's X-Men that Emma was losing control of her powers and driving her nuts? Could this be seen as the result of that?

Or am I just giving the writers too much credit?

Date: 2017-03-08 06:36 pm (UTC)
From: [personal profile] jmacq1
That would seem a possibility. I could give them enough credit to suggest they might have actually planned that out.

Tilt your head a bit and you can even maybe buy into the out-of-character Cyclops obsession. Maybe she was "tuning in" to Cyclops (consciously, subconsciously, or otherwise) because his orderly and disciplined personality helped her remain stable, and got so used to using him in that fashion that losing him was like depriving a junkie of their fix.

...Okay, so they literally had Medusa say, in the story, that if she knew the Terrigen Cloud was days away from killing everyone, they'd have done something.

When even your characters are acknowledging that if people had just talked to each other, your entire mini-series wouldn't have happened, you're doing something wrong.

On the plus side, the "mutant extinction" thing is over until the next variant comes up. Until you remember that all the current mutants are apparently sterilized by the Cloud and we don't know about future mutant births.

The completion of a long character assassination arc which took a former villain-turned-complex-hero into ranting maniac. (Emma).

Lots of pointless fight scenes.

Well that was a largely pointless crossover!

They could have solved that problem with some weather controlling super types, a big jar, and talking to each other.

At least the new generation of Inhumans might move their stagnate culture in something like a modern direction. Hopefully they will show us the Alpha Mutates getting integrated into the rest of the culture.

As for the non-mutated Inhumans, I'm sure someone will come up with a method for change as soon as its plot needed.
