    I mean, who's to say it isn't a conspiracy? Who even invented inches?

    Someone brought up the point earlier that Cassandra could be manipulating pro mutant activists too and I am wondering if she actually manipulated X-23 too.

    X-23 hacking off that guys fingers just feels out of touch with where she is now and Taylor is writing her inher own title.

    Maybe Cassandra is manipulating everywhere.

    I am trying to be optmistic as I have very mixed feelings about this book so far, the bizarre inclusion of the gender pay gap didn't help BUT if it's mention was intended to "trigger" the kind of reactions in this thread it makes me more optimistic where this book might be going.

    I am really hope that Jean will be about bringing people together. If anyone should be able to see humanity in even the worst people or just people with different views to her it should be the X-Men's version of Jesus.

    Jeansus a thing?

    Lol. Some reporters made mistakes. Out of 1,000,000 accurate stories.

    And now an entire network is not credible. And woah all of mainstream media is not credible, too. Get real dude.

    This is actually the second time Taylor has written Laura cutting off someone’s fingers. She did it to a goon in ANW’s first arc. She was criticized for it then, and she didn’t care. So I really doubt Nova had anything to do with it.

    That was my theory, but I don’t think Laura has anything to do with it.

    it happens a lot. and they didn't make a mistake, they manipulated film to show a completely different story. they got busted for it. please, look it up. but again, i'd like to drop this since it's not really on topic anymore

    Thank you.

    Too bad about gentle; the thing that bugs me about the newer mutants, is that they can’t have their ability without having some bizarre side effect that pretty much limits them right out of the gate. I’m gonna be sorely dissapointed if gentle turns out to be the wonder man of this team.

    TBH, some of them (*cough*Elixir*cough*) it may be the only way to make them work in a story because they're so broken.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Ron White says you can't fix stupid. I beg to differ. Stupid will usually sort itself out, it's just a matter of making sure you're not close enough to become collateral damage.

    the highest tier of super human strength generally have negative side effects

    Hulk is a Jekyll/Hyde character, the Thing looks like a very unattractive stone creature, Sasquatch used to have animalistic rampages, Thor used to need to not be separated from his hammer for a few minutes or he would become Dr Donald Blake, Gladiator is as strong as his selfconfidence etc etc

    I agree the pain thing of Gentle isnt very smart, but then Taylor didnt create the character.
