How can anyone genuinely like this horror show where a hero is turned straight into a villain? Brainwashing is the only possible answer, I posit that if this was written by Bendis, the rating would be under 5. But since it's King, let's all throw 10s and 9s because he'll get an Eisner for this lol. If I could rate this under 1, I definitely would.

There's "liberties" and there's butchering of a character. This is the latter.

mynameisraj - Jul 28, 2021

I’d disagree. Having been through the horrors of war, tortured by the enemy, having them capture his daughter and being given the choice “Give us Earth or your daughter is dead” it doesn’t seem like a butchering. But agree to disagree here I guess.

The idea of "marriage is a war" is very apparent throughout this book.

Adam & Alana are killing the remaining Pykkts on Rann w/ the relationship at its height while we see their relationship fall apart on Earth is done beautifully!

The emasculation of Adam by Alana is really rough but well deserved here as well. She compares Adam to Mister Terrific while calling him weak desp more

An excellent book.

Throughout the X-books, Xavier seemed completely unapproachable. Here we see him talk frankly with his son and see how nervous he is with him.

The revelation about the Xorns was perfect.

This issue is also the 1st time we've seen Gorgon post X of Swords and to see Cortez messing with him to get under Kurt's skin about his faith was interesting, more
