First off I need to comment on all these people commenting on Babs. Get off it. If you didn't like the review fine, but get off the reviewer's back, especially when you know next to nothing about that person or their point of view. Personally I take a review for what it is; someone's opinion of the content and how they feel it's put together and works. That said, I can agree with both G-man and Babs. They both make compelling points and I agree with Babs on the fact that everything just sort of happens strangely. That's not to say that it's disappointing, well maybe a little, it's more like things started out one way and now suddenly they've shifted into a completely different gear. I don't know. It just feel like Norman's mental instability is being used as a heavy handed plot device. Oh so now Norman who's been the brilliant foe and bane of all super hero existence is suddenly just a complete crazy man and doing something specifically against the wishes of the President of the United States of America and now the only hope against that is the heroes we all know and love?  
 
See that isn't a bad story idea, it's just the execution has been lacking. I'm with G-man and Vance, if you have a love for the Avengers which I assuredly do, there are moments in this where you are just floored at how excited it gets you. You're like my God that's BA, or Jesus all these people are together again. But though the action is interesting and like G-man it brings back a lot of fanboy fervor for me; I also find myself disappointed. This whole thing has been a little ham fisted. If Chicago wasn't enough to get the nation behind him, I could see Norman going farther, doing more. Yes Norman is arrogant and crazy; but he's also not stupid. He would have played this smart, all the while making our heroes look like villains. This should be a very skewed moment for the Marvel U, but instead it's "Oh look that dude is evil." "Oh we told you so..."  
 
The Avengers should have gotten a moment to feel like the X-men, here in Siege. The whole world is against you and you do the right thing, not because people approve, but because it's the right thing to do. Heroic age could have been build from that very tagline and after all was said and done, the world could have discovered the truth about Norman. But instead things sort of seem more spectacle than substance. But like many people that visit these boards, that's just my opinion.

" Magneto, Iceman, Jean Grey, Mimic, Darwin, Havok, Juggernaut "
Thank you, finally someone that thinks like I do that Mimic should re-join the X-men. He's mellowed out now and we know the reason he's so weird at times is being bipolar, let's get him some psychiatric help and put a "real" X on him. lol

" Part of Magneto's lasting appeal is that he isn't 'evil' in the usual sense.  He's not psychotic like Green Goblin.  Instead, he has a reason, a sense of morality.  He believes in his cause, even though it's caused problems for his friends and family.  But I hate the recent renditon of him.  The pomposity towards other characters like Xavier, when he'd recently made peace with him in X-Men: Legacy just didn't make sense.  It didn't make sense to repower him.    Ultimately, it doesn't make sense to make him a tenuous ally.  The whole 'is he good' angle is a bit weak.  He's been good and bad like a yo-yo pretends to defy gravity.  It is on again & off again as frequent as Xavier's ability to walk.  Both feel like temporary plot twists until the next writer comes along and decides that they don't like what's been written before them...     "

I think that's just a problem of comics in general. Every time we change writers everyone wants a "new direction" it gets old; especially when the "new" direction is stuff that we've seen hundreds of times before. Or sometimes out right horrid writing (I'm looking at you Ghost Boxes). Nothing stays where it was or has any lasting appeal in the industry sometimes for this direct reason. I mean off the top of my head...the death of Captain America. How epic was that? How much news coverage did that get? And then when Bucky became Cap, everything just sort of fit; and now Steve's back. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome that he's back, but the return wasn't a great story to me and now it just sort of feels tacked on. Magneto as a hero tends to do the same, it has appeal and it could be interesting, but at the slightest breeze or writer opinion it's back to status quo and that's all status quo, even emotionally like when his reconciliation with Xavier in legacy just sort of got swept under the rug. Heck even Xavier's new out look on life from Legacy seems to just get brushed away when it's writer convenient. 
 
Enough with the ranting though. Personally I think Mags is gonna lead the X-men. I don't think Scott is jealous to tell the truth, I just think he takes Magneto with a dash of salt and he might be right to do so. Mags could very well become leader while having some sort of Dark Reign-esqe scheme in the background.

True.  But humanity as a whole does tend to lean that way on a regular basis. lol
