You know you're doing it wrong when Magneto is complimenting you...

Uh... okay, Magneto thinking you're doing things right may be cause to reassess your life.

But I like him having trouble kneeling down.

This ranks up there with Masters of Doom nonsense. The only time Magnus bends his knee it's when it's his turn for oral lovin'.

Finally got that cut fixed, eh?

Personally I'm not sure that Scott deserves the honor he's receiving here. I haven't been reading this title, but I have a hard time believing that a guy who believed cheating on his wife was the only way he could deal with her emotionally distancing herself from him. It makes no sense to me.

Which is all to say that as someone who is not a Scott fan, I have a hard time seeing why anyone would love him this much.

I mean, Magneto's sort of an evil dude, but he's usually a competent evil dude. Whereas Scott not only cheated on his wife, he did a bad job of cheatingon his wife, IIRC. (Which I may not be.)

What I find awesome about this is that, in the second panel, Land just zooms in on Maggie's head from the first panel and adds a couple extra shadows in his hair. He's not even hiding it any more.

Must be nice to be the creative team behind a title that will sell no matter how horrible the writing and art are. Job security is great, that's why Greg Land is still around.

First page, last panel: "...wasn't that just supposed to be a verbal blowjob?!"

I'm all for giving Scott credit for what he's done right so far, but that was laying it on a bit thick. Land's difficulty with expressions is, as usual, not helping.

Whaddaya Know, stolen pictures and stolen words!

...Which, incidentally, make no sense. I realise that Fraction has swapped around those two words, but they're still more indicative of a dead leader than a living one. And since when would Magneto know them? Doesn't he despise all human culture?

What does that even mean? Seriously! In the original wording, it means, "I said I wouldn't give a dazzling eulogy that's also an incitement to riot, but I totally will, via the cunning devices of sarcasm and having a brilliant speechwriter". But what is it supposed to mean with the words switched around? "I said I would give a dazzling eulogy, but I'm totally not going to"? That Magneto is promising not to work against Scott, but actually is totally going to in such a way as to maintain plausible deniability right up until the point his army marches into the city? Because I could support that.

Is this really Magneto? Last time we left him as a good guy, he pretended to be Xorn, then he recreated a miniature holocaust in New York, then got his head cut off. Of course that was really Xorn's evil twin brother, under the control of a sentient bacteria, who had surgey to make himself look like Magneto, pretending to Xorn... who also came back to life a few years later.... I got all of that right? Did I miss something anything?

Should the X-men even try to give him a chance? I mean, really, Can they really trust anyone?

While I do admit the verbal bj might have been a bit much, what does everyone have against Scott.

Up until recently he has been a figure head leader at best. during messiah complex he actually began to lead and to show how brilliant Charles always claimed he was (actually i think it started some where near the Quest for Magick arc of New-Xmen).

While i did not care for Morrison's run (killing Jean like that after she umm... burned up in the sun and got better an issue before was VERY annoying to me.) He did give us Scott and Emma (yes the way we got them was.... messy, but he also gave us White Phoenix of the Crown ithink... so all is forgiven, other writers have actually made the Scott/Emma thing better. In my head their relationship did not start until Here comes tomorrow) what i HATED was Emo Scott and Figure head scott before him.

now Scott is actually planning. Epic Level planing, yes some plans were... objectionable or poorly thought out (X-Force?... dont get me wrong kinda love that series... sans X-23 torture, i think Kimura needs to visit Emma again) but they have also showed him with faults and regrets and doubts. this is some of the best Scott Summers we have seen in a long time. why the Scott hate?

wow... this was apretty bi-polar post lol

It's pedantic, I know...but it kind of bothers me that he chooses to butcher Shakespeare's quote, here.

He has the intent right, but the line wrong. The actual phrase is: "I come to bury Ceasar, not to praise him." Of course, Antony is using Sarcasm there to strike down Brutus publicly for murdering Ceasar...but if you're going to bother with a quote, you should mention you're altering it or choose another.

"ANTONY. Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears!
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious;
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it.
Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest-
For Brutus is an honorable man;
So are they all, all honorable men-
Come I to speak in Caesar's funeral.
He was my friend, faithful and just to me;
But Brutus says he was ambitious,
And Brutus is an honorable man.
He hath brought many captives home to Rome,
Whose ransoms did the general coffers fill.
Did this in Caesar seem ambitious?
When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept;
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious,
And Brutus is an honorable man.
You all did see that on the Lupercal
I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition?
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious,
And sure he is an honorable man.
I speak not to disprove what Brutus spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love him once, not without cause;
What cause withholds you then to mourn for him?
O judgement, thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason. Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
And I must pause till it come back to me.

Doesn't bother me. Scott may be going a little fascist but he's gotten shit done. And a little fascist in a ruler is always what Magneto's enjoyed. It's appropriately ambiguous - is he playing him, is it a harbinger of Scott being off-track, is it all of the above? I personally think he plans to usurp Scott.

But I do think Scott is a very different leader post-Morrison. I wouldn't want to see that change. It made him interesting.

This? Does NOT compute.
I mean Magento's character is pretty chaotic (evil-evil, kind-of-evil, not-so-bad and good-but-misguided) but consistently has an ego the size of a small moon.
tTe flip side of his soul-deep you'll-never-beat-me determination to survive is a kind of superiority complex where no-one can beat him, therefore he's superior. I just can't see him doing this, even as part of a greater plan.
