I couldn't care less for this directionless, slowly paced book.

Hope was merely a plot device intended on "replacing" the original Jean Grey and bringing back the mutant population... Once that was done, writers didn't know what to do with her since she had done what she essentially created for, so they placed her in another book as a side character...

Plus, Marvel have brought back the ORIGINAL albeit Teen Jean Grey...

Why have a clone/granddaughter/alternate reality version of Jean Grey when you can have the ORIGINAL even though she is a teenager...

Also, Hope is annoying

Totally agree.

@viperians: S.H.I.E.L.D. killed both Cyclops and Magik, and Matthew Malloy was the one who killed Emma.

I fail to see how Cyclops is a douche for trying to save someone and being assassinated for it.

True, but none of this would've happened if Cyclops would have let SHIELD deal with it......don't you think?

I think its been proven that SHIELD has no idea what the fuck they are doing when it comes to mutants.

Wow this had an ending I wasn't expecting. I really wonder where it's going next.

I like Eva a lot less now.

Same here. Its a shame considering she was my second favorite breakout character of last year.

Yeah, Bendis wasn't the best choice for an x-book. His run on both Uncanny and All New X-men have been incredibly slow and repetitive, clunky use of time travel as a narrative device, anti-climatic conclusions, and a certain disregard for past continuity and characterization.

Is anyone else bummed about this day and age of x-men? I mean, they're all viewed as a villain, the family is broken, and all they do is fight each other. Hell kitty is dating star Lord... I just really miss the days when the X-men fought villains, when they taught children math and flight classes, and when they sat back and enjoyed each other's company

Are you people blind? What do you think is happening in Magneto solo? Humans being fair to mutants and shaking their hands? NO. I might agree Jean hacking Magneto's mind for a sec but, this I don't agree. I don't agree with Xavier's dream, fantasy, stupid dream (matter for serious thought it is). It will never happen, and even now which they are being cruel to mutants. So much for Cyclops (or X-M) is better, is right, and "cyclops already saved the mutant race to be extinct" (as a matter of fact they're about to be extinct). I don't see Cyclops doing any of that in Magneto' series. Right now neither Cyclops or X-M are saving any. Magneto is an old man and yet, he is doing (what X-M should have been doing) everything by himself and pretty well he's handling those cruel people (and with hardly power). Open ya eyes that Magneto (not was) IS right. They are killing mutants for enjoyment, using even REAL humans and turning them into cyborg so they can kill mutants, and making MGH so they can have power. Ahem... don't this sound like they do wish to have power and all this war started because they actually do envy them??

I'm surprised no one mentioned anything about Magneto's series when the answer for all this "bigotry" and "hate" can be found there (and people think they should work together? Shame). This is evidence why Magneto don't fall for Xaviers's unrealistic dream.

If I were a mutant I will be with Magneto since all he wants is peace with his fellow while humans all they want is war war war war war war war and WAR. Shame on you for those who didn't know.

I feel that is the problem with how Marvel handles Xavier's dream in that the human reaction towards mutants is often times unrealistic and unsympathetic, where seemingly every human is ready to pull out a shotgun at a mutant regardless what the mutation is or whether or not that mutant is bad. This is even more idiotic considering e the x-men live in a world filled with super beings, particularly with the fantastic four who everybody loves as of now in current marvel comics. There was an image i saw comparing how three humans would react towards Agnel in the x-men movies to the real world. Humanity should be divided on mutant-kind, not this one-sided bullcrap where they have no problem with allowing the government to have giant robots hunting mutants- most of time innocent mutants- and causing alot of property damage along the way that would make Zack Snyder proud. There has not been a real strong progression towards mutant and human relations in the X-men comics. If they were, then the current x-men comics should show and build upon that. So of course Magneto was right, because Marvel has not done a good job to make Xavier's dream of co-existence as compelling and sympathetic as Magneto's viewpoints. In addition, I wouldn't say that Xavier's dream is unrealistic. To say that is to say the equivalent of saying MLK's dream is unrealistic.
