Repetitive and nonconsequential. Feels like I've been reading the same story reworked over and ove again.

The weakest SoS book so far.

Immoral X-Men #1

By: Kieron Gillen, Paco Medina
Released: Feb 22, 2023

They said the mutants were humanity's future. It's 10 years later and they were proven to be right. The X-Men exist in a world that adores and respects them...so why are they sworn to crush it?! But while they do, Emma can take a few minutes out to crush Mister Sinister.

Stagnant and bland. The same tired story about whether Britain should accept their new Captain Britain dragging on for four years. A cheap #1 to boost sales when this is actually Excalibur #27.

Only it turns out, good ole Britain doesn't want her back. No one wants a mutant menace carrying the shield of Captain Britain, and Bets...

Things start to heat up between Valmont and Catwoman when the handsome devil in white shows Catwoman a grand gesture by taking her on a trip out of Gotham. How many high-roller cities can these two cat burglars hit for a score in one night? A crow in white and a bat in black-if only there was a moral gray zone for this one cat.

As Dick and Babs's two hearts do find their happy place next to each other, one question they ask each other proves difficult to answer.
