House of X #5

“Society”

Writer: Jonathan Hickman

Artist:  Pepe Larraz

Cover Art:  Pepe Larraz & Marte Gracia

Okay… I am not sure how I feel about this issue… or where Jonathan Hickman is taking the X-Men.

Simple fact… as I read House of X #5, I could not get out of my head the idea that this is a cult and that these are not the mutants I grew up reading.

As revelation continued through the book, I was just shocked.  I enjoyed the story, but is this how the X-Men are going to be moving forward?  I’m not sure how I feel about that.

And Charles Xavier feels like a villain right now.

Maybe I am wrong and I am misjudging the book, but I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around what is happening.  Accepting that this is the new status quo.

I have not made a final decision if I am sticking with the X-men titles after the end of this dual limited series arc, but I am still holding my final opinions back.  I just am not sure if how to feel.

I have to say, that scene where the populace of Krakoa showed up to chant “MUTANT” at the “returning” heroes… just not what I expected.

WTF
