Y'know if Marvel had reigned Morrison in and stopped him from making Magneto a bumbling drug-addled Nazi this could have been a great conclusion to what was a pretty strong run.

Also I really liked Basilisk, he was such a funny character. Shame they killed him off like that.

Killing the clown is a time-honoured tradition.

Boy, is he strict on proper categorisation or what.

Don't know if it's the art, or deliberate or what have you, but it really looks like Xorneto's just wearing a red jumper rather than, say, a costume.
Maybe he was in a hurry, but if you're going to go on a drug-fuelled rampage, perhaps wear something a bit more intimidating that what you wear around the house.
(Is he wearing slippers, too?)

He's basically wearing what Ian McKellen wore in the first X-Men film except they gave him the classic mask and colors.

This was a back when Marvel didn't have a petty vendetta against Fox so they were all for synergy with the movies.


Not the best comparison but you can see the similarities.

Damn, not only is Magneto a Nazi, he's also an incompetent clown.

He really is Hitler.

Yes, but reading it for the first time I really can imagine this is evil Zorn gone mad. Magneto sounds mad.

It certainly works in retrospect; it works better than Morrison's intention, in fact.

I mean, this isn't just Magneto going off the deep-end, this is nonsensical. He doesn't even sound like Magneto at this point. Also, there's a whole lot of 'and then anyone who wasn't a cast member just did what they were told and no one but the X-Men could solve this' going on.

How does Toad even talk when he has a 3-foot-long tongue hanging out of his mouth?

I know... latent telepathy. :)

one of the most incomprehensible things about this is why anyone in the Special Class sided with Magneto in the first place. I mean, I can get them following Xorn, who'd built up a relationship with them, but with the reveal the pretence of Xorn goes out the window and any of the faux teachings that the Special Class may have been drawn to.

That's an obvious author's statement that education is a very powerful and dangerous tool.

He does have at least one unscrupulous telepath around...

He does, but absolutely no indication that she was messing with their heads. They just seem to be going along for the ride during the destruction of New York up to this point.

Wasn't it all revealed to be mental influence by Sublime? :/ I'm told that Morrison did have method to his madness, but I'm from the school that says if a piece of art has to be explained to be appreciated it is a failure on the artist's part.
