    Actually, I feel Mags knowing makes more sense- part of the time he was mad because of his powers, and he could just be more hesitant to fully trust Moira. Xavier less so,, particularly why he just wouldn't recruit earlier mutants that were already powered around the time the X-men started and he knew would be important, like Emma, Storm, Banshee, etc (Logan makes a little more sense if he was too wild to be around teenagers at that point).

    Yeah, I think Aaron's work in the last decade or so, apart from his early Thor work, is skippable at best and downright terrible at it's worst.

    From what I read and heard about, only IH and Hickman's work are can't miss stuff, though there's good books here and there. The problem is that the big books usually suffer too much interference from editorial and the smaller ones get cancelled with 12 issues.

    House of X #2 is...something. Really will change how you see the story and even the X-men as a whole, specially Moira.

    The goal isn't to make mutants extinct, but rather make sure humans survive alongside them- hence the emphasis in peaceful co-existence, and now the gifts to mankind. It would change the story of the X-men as we know, because the ultimate goal wouldn't be preserve mutantkind: it was always going to win the war in the (very) long run, but make sure humankind doesn't get wiped out. That is, if I'm right about this, of course.

    Moira, if that's really her, it's either a time-traveler or someone with the capacity of seeing the future; that scene that was pointed as "the most important in X-men history" would mean all Xavier did since creating the X-men was with future knowledge. And if that's the case, the objective wasn't to save mutants, but humankind, since, by the time of the Ascension, it is extinct, and seemingly for a long time, except for those two that are there preserved like zoo animals.

    P10 was interesting, and a lot to process. The twist in the end was interesting, and twists the "dark future" trope on it's head. Plus, it made Nimrod fun and cool.

    I also played FM in the past, but eventually gave up because it was always somewhat time-consuming, but eventually became just too much, to the point you can't fully experience the game without it being a 9 to 5 job.

    This issue only lists Jean and Quire as telepaths. Emma was always much less powerful, and Xavier always needed Cerebro. Also, Apocalypse and Vulcan are team members now, so there seems to be something that makes all the villains unite with the X-men.

    There aren't all that many Omega Telepaths, just two, Jean and Quire (although all the Summers/Grey children should have been there too). Also, Hickman said that X-men will rotate the cast, and judging by the solicits, looks like Cyclops will be the only regular, picking the team for every mission, and he's only in New Mutants for the first arc to set up stuff for the future.

    Can't be fully straight if Hickman literally tell us . My guess, based on solicits and his love for the character, it's

    While this issue was excellent in itself, it was also, just by elimination, the best issue in an X-book at least since Kieron Gillen was writing Uncanny back in 2012. It's also a sharp contrast to the garbage that was Matthew Rosenberg's run that just ended the week prior, which was a candidate for worst X-men run ever- Cyclops' characterization in particular couldn't be more different (basically, the entire run was, perhaps by editorial order, designed to say basically everything Cyclops did since Morrison took over was wrong, and also that Emma is a stupid evil bitch).

    Nothing in Age of X-man matters. Hickman's date for the script was February 11th, 2018 (it appeared in the director's cut), and editors and writers already said everything in the last months at least was planned afterwards they knew what Hickman was doing, and was essentially filler. Also, you're supposed to be wondering what the hell is going on with Xavier- although he was always a dick, so this could be he just giving the pretense of being a saint. As for Logan, he likes kids, sure, but it is almost certainly supposed to be jarring too that the first scene you see of the X-men's resident badass is him being all nice and cuddly.

    Age of X-men Omega has no bearing whatsoever on the plot; in fact, anything that came out in these last few years is irrelevant. And what exactly did you find confusing? While there's plenty of mysteries to unfold, the plot seems relatively straightforward to me.

    House of X really delivers in pretty much reinventing the X-men status quo in just one issue
