"Poink Is The New Bamf"
By now the cliffhanger of the last issue is relatively common knowledge and Magneto is our "spy". I am not certain what his game is here or if he is actually trying to do what he thinks is right. His defaulting to help S.H.I.E.L.D. over his fellow mutants is a little surprising and with his past is hard to swallow. I am starting to wonder if the fact that Emma doesn't have her abilities to read minds may be a clue that Magneto may not be Magneto at all. We have seen a lot of Mystique references as of late and it is possible that she is posing. This is, of course, just a random guess for me though and I have no real proof.
I am incredibly excited to see the battle that is on the horizon as of the last pages of this issue. It will be great to see how much control the mutants really have over their powers and if they can stand toe-to-toe with anyone else who still has powers that they have always had. This book is a perfect pairing with All-New X-Men and I can't wait until they overlap in the future.
