    It's an alright story, the fights are generally good stuff, and the material for Magik and Spider-Man hits home with me. However,it also finished my lingering affection for Cyclops as a character, proved to me that Bendis is terrible at writing Captain America, and dug Wolverine even deeper into the nonsensical and arbitrary characterization that result when you shove the guy into as many starring roles as possible in as many books as possible. And nothing has ever made me like Hope, who has never managed to become anything more than a plot device with an irritatingly stock "angry teenager" personality tacked on as an afterthought.

I want to see the truth about the new mutants referenced (in a capacity that actually effects the story), that they would never have been mutants before the events of AvX. Cyclops' "victory" meant forcibly messing with the DNA of thousands of human beings without their consent, since he didn't re-power the DeciMated mutants. His plan to restart the mutant race did so in an invasive way that ruined a lot of peoples' lives, and he's still crowing about it because he saved his species.

Further evidence that Cyclops now cares about his crackpot ideology far more than any individuals, be they on his team or not. Of course, that was evident as early as the Kyle/Yost X-Force series.
