  -I enjoyed this, but I think I've already had my fill of "evolutionary stuff." Plus, I'll eat my hat if Louise Simonson REALLY wrote more than a tiny fraction of this book.

  So, Apocalypse is the good guy?

  I'm not sure about good guy. The Evolutionary is just worse, at the moment. Maybe.

  I don't know about everyone else, but I enjoyed this issue a lot. Sure, the concept is forced, too simplistic, and there are flaws in the execution.
But I loved apocalipse and evolutioner discussions. Both have the same goal, they just have different ways to achieve it. One follows the idea that conflict leads to progress, which is actually a true concept, and the other follows a forced handcrafted evolution ideology. it's such a great idea because it makes so much sense that they clash and compete, that makes me feel like this HAD to happen at some point. And then the crisis created by the bad guys, forced the mutant to grow, to "evolve", making Apocalipse point evident and causing Evo to retreat.
So yeah, this issue actually makes SENSE. And when a crazy idea for an arc at least manages to achieve that, it's worth some praise. 4 stars.
