9.5

A world-building issue, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it seemed a little disjointed. Of course, that's probably by design, but I'm still going with a 9.5 instead of the whole magilla. A couple of stray thoughts:

Is it just me, or was Xavier giving off a sinister (no pun intended) vibe during those scenes with Forge?

Another mention of the potentially dire consequen more

I've been reading comics for over 40 years. I honestly cannot remember the last time I was this excited to see how a story was going to turn out in the end.

9.5

As a long-time X-Men reader, I've been really excited by Hickman's take on the team and its mythos. The story in HoX and PoX is the first time in a long time that I've considered any book a "must read."

This issue was a gut punch in some ways, although I'm pretty sure that we're going to see that graphic of Moira's past lives come into play with regard to everything that went down. >
I'd give this a 10, but I have issues with Hickman's dialogue. Like a lot of modern writers, he seems to have trouble nailing the individual voices of the characters, which has been a Marvel trademark since the beginning. more
