I could go for more covers of one character with multiple costumes. That is an awesome gimmick!
We get Uncanny back on track with this issue, hopefully!
The Xavier School, Location, secret. Today. Scott comes outside and sees his brother, Havok, standing about. Havok’s face is all scarred from AXIS. One of maybe three consequences from that event. They hug, which is nice to see. The base is empty.
Three hours ago. Scott is breaking the news that the Jean Grey School is going to be taking the students. No one wants to go, why would they? They have been told for months how horrible that school is and the teaching staff. Hijack seems to be taking this the hardest. It is simply nice to be reading about the students again.
Scott has decided to turn himself over to the authorites, due to his actions that lead to Xavier’s death. Mostly, that Scott told Xavier to walk away and Xavier, instead, chose to keep playing with fire. I imagine the authorities are going to do a quick Google search and see that Xavier has ‘died’ at least four times and shrug their shoulders.
This is the first Magik has heard about this part of the plan.
Goldballs loses control of his balls and slaps them against Scott’s face.
Now. Havok is taking a nap and Scott is in the room, doing some packing. This wakes up Alex, who has been sleeping for fourteen years. Apparently this happens a lot, after a major super-power event, which is as decent of a name for crossovers, in-universe. Poor Scott, all that he owns, can fit into a few bags and boxes.
Havok wants to tag along with Cyclops. Cyclops is trying to take back the public perception of him. Xavier leaving everything to Cyclops, blew his mind. He wasn’t the guy’s son, he actually had one of those (before Legion wrote himself out of continuity) and Cyclops killed his adopted father.
I like Scott’s answers to Alex’s “what’s wrong with us?” Parents captured and mother killed by aliens. They had powers in a world that hates and fears them.
Then. Scott is knocked out by Goldball’s balls.
Kitty wants all of this tomfoolery to just stop. Magik wants Kitty to come with her, Kitty just got back from space with her boyfriend. So is this Post-Black Vortex? Kitty wants a shower but Illyana grabs her arm and the two ladies are off to what will most likely be my favorite arc of this series!
Emma tells Triage to heal Scott. Just let the guy take a tad nap.
Emma isn’t going to the Jean Grey School, why would she, she should totally go back to the Hellfire Club. Someone should make that group, important again.
Now. Alex asks the question most of us had this entire volume, when is this Revolution going to start? I like how Bachalo clearly doesn’t want to draw Alex’s scarred face, so he keeps picking angles that only hint at his left side.
Then. Emma and Scott are finally have the conversation they should have had prior to this volume. Their break up has never really been addressed. Emma apparently asked Scott about the revolution too.
Nothing Cyclops did, has ever worked, in terms of mutant and human relations. The X-Men fought for the dumb flatscans and they were feared. They fought alongside them, and mutant children died. They moved to an island and it was attacked in full force. All Cyclops had, was threats.
Emma was willing to start over with Scott, she knew all of his motivations already. Emma implies that she is willing to get back with him, but he tells her that he wouldn’t touch her with Namor’s trident. Which goes to show how much he paid attention to Namor. Why did they break up? Was that ever really addressed? They sort of where together under Kieron Gillen and Bendis had them broken up by the time his first issue came along.
Emma diamond forms up. Emma has had full use of her powers for a while now. He keeps wanting to know when her powers came back, and she keeps talking about how much she has been on his side. I really did enjoy the Emma Scott relationship. She has let Scott in like none before him, and they were the best of teams.
Alex is way to excited about Emma being out of Scott’s life.
People made a big deal of last issue’s cover, with Havok and Cyclops fighting, not being reflective of that issue but it isn’t reflective of this issue too. It should have been them hugging but I guess that would have tipped the emotion of the issue.
Alex has a plan to get Scott back on track. Scott takes a guess that it is a, Summers Brothers Pizza Parlor, and Alex wishes that was what he came up with. There is a What If, I sort of what to read!
Next issue, Monsters! Which has Magik and Shadowcat, being Demon Hunters, which was hinted at way back in All New X-Men 25! The only hinted at story that people wanted to see and now it comes! I hope it isn’t disappointing nor just one issue. I also wish that Lockheed will be involved! I’ms o excited!
