Well, that was completely…and brilliantly…effed up.
What a mess…for those originally suggesting that Alex doesn’t belong on this team, this issue went a long way towards demonstrating just how messed up Scott Summers’ little brother really is.
This whole issue explored the concept of identity, and how confused that can become in a world that includes cloning and mind swaps. Maddie isn’t Jean, Kwannon isn’t Betsy, Alex isn’t Scott…it’s all such a mess. And you just know that Sinister’s chuckling to himself in the shadows.
But, yes, clever, brutal writing and superb art. This book is fast becoming a favourite of mine. It just needs more Empath.
