I really like this story and conflict. I enjoy watching my heroes dealing with issues that aren't clear black and white sometimes.

I just have one question. Have any of the lights asked any of the X-men for help? It really seems like none of the adults on Utopia have any clue something is wrong or that the lights are unsatisfied.

i think the x-men have been monitoring the situation incase things get out of hand... that whole controlling kenji thing against his will mightbe one of them...

Though, considering their track record with the X-Kids before the messy divorce, the X-Men just not bothering to give a damn seems just as likely.

Well they got Idie out of there at least. But that's because Wolverine didn't like Cyclops' influence on her than Hope's creepy mind control.

I'm fully with Kenji here. The more I see Hope in her own book, the more I'm convinced that she's the villain. Her motivations, oh-so-tragic-action-backstory aside, are generally self-centered and imperious.

I kind of like that about her? Not only is she a kid, she's a kid with little to no experience in extended human interaction outside of war zones.

On top of that, she's been told she's a messiah. Defined as that her entire life. That would fuck with anyone's sense of self-importance, particularly a teenager's.

Before Generation, Hope wanted to take some time to navigate her loss and trauma and figure out who she really is underneath it all. But then she found Laurie, and she never got a chance.

Hope is a crappy leader, caught up in her own guilt and loneliness and confusion, doing the worst things for the right reasons. And the book knows it. What we're leading up to, I think, is Hope learning that she can't use these kids as toy soldiers, that she's not ready to be an unquestioned messiah, that she needs help in every possible way.

Plus here adopted father was Cable, and she was being chased through time by someone wanting to kill her.

Regardless, Cyclops should never have made her a leader of a team. He should have assigned a proven team leader like Storm to the squad. That way Hope and the Lights can also get some guidance and help to deal them with everything that has happened to them. But no just because she is the supposed Mutant Messiah she automatically ready for everything.

Cyclops making bad decisions about teenagers doesn't really astound me, but yeah.

It will be interesting to see if he finds out before or during Avengers vs X-Men.
