Thoughts: Holy crap, wordy Bendis is back ladies and gentlemen. He had Emma reciting a novel at the beginning of this comic. As for this issue, it was pretty average, we basically got to see inside the relationship of Scott and Emma as they decide not to date but to continue to work together, as well as see how Emma dealt with not having her powers. We also got a bit more character development on the new mutants, although this book could use one of those things on the opening page with everyone's picture and name so I remember who is who. I'd say the best parts of this issue were being freaked the eff out by Magik and seeing how quickly Magneto betrayed his team. I'm excited to see the Avengers confront Scott and his team in the next issue though. as for this issue, it was fine, nothing bad, nothing amazing, as X would say, a perfectly acceptable comic.
