This makes me hate the Avengers almost as much as the Marvel US government. Mutants get crapped on, again, and no one outside the X-men gives a damn.

Really they should just move in with Namor. Safe from nukes and they don't have to deal with this bullshit.

So I assume the Magneto - Rogers pact is over.

I really don't see why the mutants surrendered here. They got Magneto, Illyana, Rachel Summers, Polaris, Storm, Rogue, Amara, etc, etc, etc. Sentinels never amounted to anything against mutants. See how many Avengers are willing to go up against all the mutants.

There is plenty of legal precedent in the MU for superhumans just seizing land and the authorities having to negotiate. New Tian could simply have been presented as a fait accompli.

"the homeland mutants have dreamt of"
"The mutants", I don't know, but Charles Xavier sure never dreamt of a place where non-mutants would be second rate citizen. I'm pretty sure that Cyclops you hate so much never dreamt of that either, Hank.

"The homeland you dreamt of... apart from Avalon/Asteroid X, oh and Genosha... and probably another couple of places which more or less fit that idea"

And seriously, SENTINELS? The US is openly using Sentinels in a mutant situation?

Don't worry Emma, eventually someone will remember that you started a race war...you'll make the history books for sure.

I get that I'm supposed to feel bad that the latest Mutant Utopia is gone (despite the fact that it was founded on a huge bed of lies and manipulation)...but I'm pretty sure this wasn't the Great Society Hank and Emma seem to think it was. Oppresion of non-Mutants was not part of Xavier's dream, certainly. Moreover, I suspect (since we're never shown) that many of the residents of this location had no desire to suddenly wake up and discover they were in a new country or GTFO, especially if they weren't rich.

What doesn't make much sense is destroying all the new structures rather than repurposing them...except to wipe the slate clean in the MU, so five years from now no one remembers this event happened. I mean, we often maintain sites from Olympic games that often were originally designed to last past the event, but somehow they want to destroy an entire sub-city?

"They'll never know who their queen was..."

Am I the only one who wishes Marvel would get over their obsession with monarchies?

Putting aside the issue of the U.S. Government using SENTINELS to tear down New Tian's buildings as they reabsorb those lands back into northern California... why do those buildings even need to be torn down?

I don't think Damage Control would have signed off on this...
