My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I get frustrated with stories that have everything going really well and according to plan and then, suddenly, oh no, everything’s gone wrong! Also, I just don’t like these new Reavers…or maybe I don’t like Iceman’s complete indifference to maiming people. Seriously, leaving your opponent maimed rather than dead doesn’t really give you the moral high ground. I’m pretty sure that using weapons that maim your enemies is a war crime, Bobby.

It also feels naïve of the Krakoans to think they could wage an economic war with the Verendi and not have the Verendi escalate that war…and that the poor people of Low Town wouldn’t be the ones to pay a heavy price for that.

Still, there are some nice moments in this issue, particularly the moment when Masque realises that they can use their powers to help babies born with disfigurements, and also Charles and Erik’s reaction to the hospital being named after one of the foremost human allies of mutants…Moira McTaggert. So, it’s not common knowledge on Karkoa that Moira’s a mutant then…
