I am loving the way that Spurrier is writing David Haller in this book. The jumps between his unbalanced mind to his reality is done so well that it is incredible. Also, seeing David hunt down his different personalities within his own mind is not only interesting but also humorous.

This issue is the first issue that David mentions potentially making a school with the mutants he has started to help out. He isn't sure if that is what he wants but he knows it is time to do something. He isn't exactly following in his father's footsteps but he does want to do good just like Xavier. I actually loved that this issue dealt with him not only coming to the conclusion that he wont do things exactly like his father but that people can do good in their own ways.

I am far more hooked to this comic than I originally thought possible and David is quickly becoming a character that I can enjoy reading. He is an experience within himself and then there is another story layered on top of that. The next issue is teased to have him interacting with Wolverine and his school which sounds as if it will be something incredible to read. If you haven't given this book a shot yet you should. It is so much different than any other comic out there that I am reading that it makes it truly fun to read as a bookend to all of the other comics that I absorb.
