There was an upside to rushing from nation to nation, saving suicidal or homicidal mutants from themselves. It was a distraction. Cable is still dead. Hope has lost her father. Now, with a moment to breathe, she has time to think... and HAS to think. Not least because everyone else wants to mold her in their image. In this issue, Generation Hope's future is decided.

    Gillen is playing a lot of his cards close to his chest and I like it. He never comes out and says what the problem some of the adults have with Hope is but heavily implies both the Jean Grey and Phoenix connections and does so separately, Emma and Scott are more given to the Phoenix worries while Logan is too reminded of Jean to be near her. The dialogue feels very natural and the characters follow suit. My only real complaint is the comments about Emma's clothes as the outfit she wears is quite conservative compared to most of what she normally is seen in. Either way, a decent, solid story and good looking art gives this a deserved 4.5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    "Generation Hope" is in many ways trying to turn itself into the new "New Mutants" (in more ways than one), and I'd like to see it succeed. The characters are all still getting fleshed out, but Gillen makes sure that we still learn more about them each month. It's an intriguing cast, and we're getting little hints and teases for stories to come as well. I'm definitely on board for much more. Read Full Review

    Good stuff all around for the most part. I look forward to the next issue and the promise of yet another light being lit. Read Full Review
