By now, being a mutant is less like being gay and more like - and it kinda took Paris for me to see it - being a Muslim. Think about it: The general public is in fear of them, most of them try to blend in, a minority tries to take a radical approach and makes it way more difficult for all the rest, since every extreme action they take, fuels the fear in the public, and in turn makes life worse for the "normal" mutants. Heck, they even used the name of a, so to say, mutant prophet as their cover, working in his name, even though it goes against his teachings...here, he even actively opposed them! And all the while, the discrimination of mutants all alike is not debatable.

I know, the metaphor isn't that perfect, since the radical minority with Muslims is extremely small, way smaller than Cyclops little band is compared to mutantkind. Also, Cyclops and Co haven't done really that much damage...well, except the Phoenix-Catastrophe. And even with that, the only talk is about one victim. But in my opinion, it's comparable.

To the issue itself, a nice issue with a lot of dialogue. I thought this would be a fighting-heavy comic, but no, expectation nicely subverted. I also thought Magneto would stay a mole in secret, but wrong again! This really has the feeling of an underground cell trying to plot its way to victory...and the C-Men (Cyclops X-Men) now appearing at the Jean Grey School is a great cliffhanger for the next issue. Definitely going to follow this one!

A dialogue-filled issue, but essential for plot development. There are some great allusions to actual dialogue we see taking place across the world about "being different" -- /is it my fault? I shouldn't have let you... If only I would have done ___ then you wouldn't be like this.--

This is a key issue that puts Cap' right in the face of Cyclops.
