I feel like I should care more, but I think it’s just taken too long to get here and this wasn’t a good enough pay off.

Too decompressed. this could have been tol in half of the issue. Waited one years for this, not worthy

Art is good but I think Silva + gracia could be better for this

Does anyone else feel that Hickman isn't even trying anymore? It seems like he was only invested in HoX/PoX. This title is a low point in his career at MARVEL.

It was a simple mission: retrieve NANNY'S ship and create a new containment armor for the recently resurrected ORPHAN-MAKER. But the emergence of an old enemy and his deadly warriors make their renewed life a hell on Earth for the HELLIONS!

Hickman is so inconstant. Some times he writes GREAT. Other times he writes DULL. Unfortunately, X-Men #16 was dull.

The pay off it's not that interesting, really underwhelming, feel like I was reading ''X-Men Black Emma Frost'' all over again with Kate on it, move on writters. Now this plot it's over, hoping to see others characters like Bishop, Iceman, Callisto, Pyro and Christian get to do something beside being background.
