This TPB follows straight on from Divided We Fall United We Stand; as President Captain America offers the mutants a choice either of ‘a cure’ or to make a nation of a parcel of land on offer. This bit of real estate is in deepest remote Utah and is an ex-military test ground for all sorts of nasty. (I am being generous to ‘Cap’ I suppose his choices were limited and ‘Cap’ being ‘Cap’ he would bound to have a lot of old-fashioned faith in good-old-fashioned pioneering virtues).
The book opens with a suicide bomb action on mutants waiting for the cure; the bomber another mutant, Husk, she survives, naturally, this sets a very nervy tone for the whole work, the art work particularly sharp and jagged for this chapter.
Anyway no sooner have Kitty and her group accepted this place named ‘Utopia’ than not only has she the obvious environmental and survival problems to deal with but her leadership and motivations are being challenged by Nomi (now known as Mach 2) a blue haired 14 year old in the Magneto Mode with similar powers. I found this part of the story line sadly realistic; a community under threat fracturing under the pressure and being very critical of an unwilling leader who worked their socks off (s’more dignified than some alternatives) to scrabble this crumb for them; check your histories and current affairs; an all too familiar pattern.Read more ›
