Beast's character development makes sense here. Dark Beast came about because Apocolypes left him unchecked and free to pursue his curiosity. Krakoa has allowed him the same luxury, and the result is a "by any means necessary" attitude.

ALL-NEW, ALL-SAVAGE WOLVERINE!
WOLVERINE's been sold out. BANNISTER's been duped. And when the dust settles, there's something...different about Logan. Wolverine's saga in the Krakoan era takes a savage turn with a decision - and a betrayal - that changes everything!

The X-Men have always been at their best when they work in tandem. The Fast Ball Special is an obvious fan favorite, but I'm digging these new subtle mutant circuits. Jean downloading Forge's input to Iceman was just a nice touch to a new team dynamic.

THE INHERITORS OF THE EARTH?
The mutants are the next stage of evolution. Evolution depends on a mutation of genes - the genes of the offspring deviating from their progenitors. Some would call the X-gene EXCESS deviation. Those people are gonna need to be taken down a few pegs.

A.X.E.: Death to the Mutants #1

By: Kieron Gillen, Guiu Villanova
Released: Aug 17, 2022

The mutants are Deviants. Eternals are coded to correct excess deviation. The mutants are eternal, Mars colonizers, ever-spreading. Eternals know what they should do. Our heroes don't want to, but can they resist the murderous designs coded into their body as surely as any Sentinel? And if they can't, can anyone survive the coming judgment?

My emotions are in flux: I love this so much, but I'm so pissed that DC is incapable of driving their events remotely in the right direction (this direction). I know I shouldn't be comparing, but Dark Crisis is hot shit compared to this. This is only on #2 with two tie-ins has ten times the amount of plot that Dark Crisis has.

I love a good X-Men space opera as much as the next 90s kid, but this may be a bit too heavy for me. The deep references are fun, but I know a lot of them are going over my head. Personally, I love the art, but the story is getting somewhat hard to follow.

I'm enjoying Orlando's dense writing on this more than I have on his work for DC because I actually get most of his obscure continuity references (and have Paul O'Brien's annotations on House To Astonish to fill me in on the rest). It's still a slow read but I'm learning to appreciate that. I wish the art were clearer in some places, but Carlini's Cassandra Nova really shines.

An absolute banger of an issue. I love the way Ewing is integrating Arakko and it's culture into the larger Marvel universe in a way that no other writer has managed yet. The chess match between Brand and Storm is extremely well written, as were the conflicts at the Circle Perilous. From Roberto's play in the stands to the way in which Magneto deals with Tarn, it was all just perfectly clever. more

I can't remember the last time a comic made me audibly gasp, but that Isca twist... so good. Ewing is really in his element with this one; the politics, the (literal) world-building, and the character development are top tier. Three issues in, and I can't wait to see where this goes.
