    Maybe Emma... She's shown she'll willing to straight up control mutants before. Not sure what her game would be here but I'd imagine she's busy putting together a merry band of misfits. I don't see any bondage gear though so I could be wrong.

    I mean he was completely useless sin IvX, its like the team tries to use him as 616 Logan and it just isn't working.

    He is too old and past his prime to be a front line fighter
    Right. People complaining he is taken out too easily but I think that's kind of how it has to be.
    Chris Claremont, Peter David, Mike Carey, Cullen Bunn = canon. Others = fanfic.

    I was kind of hoping it would be Rictor, because I really miss him, but after getting a better look at the new Avalanche in this preview, there's no way that's him. I'm thinking it might be Strong Guy, actually.

    The dialogue is terrible.

    Interesting way to look at it, lol....

    Random thought, I wonder if sales will go up on this issue because of 'controversy' and people thinking the value might go up if there are anymore 'messages.'

    Kind of like Emperor Lelouch, but with no Thanatos Gambit because she's creating a mutant sovereign state out of HYDRAmerica. Free Will is a shackle?

    Whatever the case, I hope the controversy from the first issue doesn't derail this series. It's got such a great lineup. It deserves better.
    poor Amara. no writer seems to know what to do with her for any extended period. she tends to come a go frequently.

    How is OML getting jobbed? He would stand no chance whatsoever in a one-on-one with most of the members on that Brotherhood lineup. Either Magma, Pyro, or Avalanche could massacre him in a one-on-one fight and it was Magma who took him down. Regarding the other two members, I don't know who they are or what they can do (one may be Masque of the Morlocks, but I seriously hope not. He's got one sorry battle power).

    Yeah, Logan isn't being jobbed. I mean, he was taken down by Inferno with flames. So this should be fine too.

    Yeah, she manipulates heat and can force magma to erupt from the Earth's crust. That's the level of heat that OML just got hit with. Not jobbed. Just logically taken out of the picture. Something tells me she hit him because she knew he could take it (she is still who she is). Magma has always been overpowered. One of the reasons she barely gets used. It's hard to write villains that could shrug off an entire team AND what she can do. Not to mention just using her full powers would cause more harm than good in a metropolitan area... Or any area outside of Hawaii. Her powers are better suited as a bad guy. Not her, her powerset. Before any of you super fans lose your @#$& on me.

    All of this. In one of the New Mutants (Vol 2) issues, Elixir woke up Magma from her coma and she immediately smashed the entire hospital to rubble by creating a volcano. It would have killed Hellion and the entire hospital staff if Elixir didn't have his healing powers.
