      The scene is from Immortal X-Men, written by Keiron Gillen, who's entire run on Immortal has been him shitting on the wokeshit that is being spewed by Duggan and the other hack X-Men writers as far as even someone like Gillen, a woke literal homosexual, knows the X-Men lost the plot under the Hickman revamp and is desperately damage controlling shit to try and salvage the franchise by having Xavier admit that Hickman character assassinate him.

        To say that Gillen would shit on wokeshit is silly. He's not merely a woke literal homosexual: he pioneered the wokeshit back when he was editor of EDGE magazine. Gamergate and all the resulting cancer traces back to his "New Games Journalism Manifesto".

        BUT! He's also one of the few writers interested in exploring the moral failings of Krakoa that Hickman set up. Almost everyone else wanted the happy hippy commune and ignored the central theme of corruption and compromise; Gillen (and Spurrier, and to some degree Ewing and Percy) tried to do something with it.

            Essentially, in 2004 advocated an alternate approach to writing about computer games that emphasised how it made the player-writer feel rather than nuts and bolts of mechanics. It came about at least in part as a way to counter the growing market of internet reviews - if you can see and download actual gameplay, what is the purpose of a review? Could it be used to discuss broader topics?

            >“This makes us Travel Journalists to Imaginary places. Our job is to describe what it’s like to visit a place that doesn’t exist outside of the gamer’s head – the gamer, not the game, remember. Go to a place, report on its cultures, foibles, distractions and bring it back to entertain your readers.”
            >“New Games Journalism exists to try and explain and transfer the sensations allowed by videogaming to anyone who’s willing to sit and take time to read it. It asks the question ‘Why game anyway?’ and then gives as many answers as there are people, as interesting as people, as precious.”

            This isn't that controversial, and its not that different from how the Brit PC Mag review culture of the time was already approaching things, like with the infamous Steve Hoggarty Sims expansion review or Charlie Brooker's various things.

            The thing is, Gillen's quite a good writer. He's reasonably bright, well read, and has a range of interests, which is why he was able to move on from video games jernalism. The NGJM was always intended to be just one tool in a toolbox, not completely replacing it - there's always going to be room for useful technical breakdowns, and besides, not everyone enjoys the same styles of writing. The people who FOLLOWED Gillen, however, were nowhere near as good as him but though they could follow his footsteps. From a website financier standpoint, it was also cheaper, faster and less likely to rock the boat with publishers to churn out reams of guff about what the writer had for breakfast than detailed reviews.

            TLDR - it was a tool that got misused

              back in... I think 2004? Gillen was the editor of EDGE magazine, which was obviously a gaming magazine.

              One day one black guy got called the n-word during an online game, and wrote an article whinging about it.
              This inspired Gillen so deeply that he published the New Games Journalism Manifesto and declared that from this point on, games journalism should focus not on talking about the technical aspects of games and their quality (graphics, gameplay, story, etc) and instead focus on writing about how the games made them feel and their social impact.

              Journos loved it, since they could talk about themselves rather than do the work, and so the bullshit began.

              Still sounds like a terrible way to review a video game. But realizing that Gillen unintentionally spear-headed all that narcissistic bullcrap really puts all this into perspective.

                Krakoa being a new headquarters and seeing X-men trying to build a functioning their own society is a good idea to explore, especially if it worked like Cable’s Providence where everyone wasn’t just mutants. Had plenty of potential. Making it a creepy ethnostate cult wasn’t but that’s what Hickman wanted to do and I was never fan of the direction Krakoa took from the start because it was clear the aspects I was interested in the concept were never going to get any real focus.

                Thing is, most people don't think the idea of a mutant separatist nation is a good idea because Marvel's already done the idea several times before, and none of them worked out in the end. Remember Utopia back when it was Asteroid M or Nation X? How about Tian or New Tian? Or how about Genosha, after Magneto was done finishing his own ethnic cleansing of the human overlords to install himself as the mutant overlord? Heck, how about the alternate realities where mutants achieved Magneto's dream of being the dominant fricking species like House of M and Age of X-man? They've already explored the concept of "Mutants with their own place to live" to death, and not just with the mainline X-men. They've done that shit with Cable's Providence and Thor's New Asgard and the Inhumans themselves squatting over New York, and the Ultimates had them doing their own goddamn iteration of Krakoa years before in the middle of goddamn Ohio.

                Bottom line is, no more fricking mutant ethnostates. Not for a long while. None of Marvel's talent has capable of fleshing that shit out, and this fixation on a perfect mutant safe haven is stagnating the frick out of the writing. If someone actually does come around with their own interesting take on the concept, I'll live with it, but right now they need to stop with the mutant ethnostates.
                >But muh allegor-
                Frick the allegory, the X-men should be goddamn superheroes, not the kingmakers of mutantkind. The writers spent four years of the X-men crawling up its own narrative hole, studying the crevasses and hemorrhoids, and this is all they have to show for it. Marvel's proven that they shouldn't be trusted with writing about this mutant ethnostate bullshit for at minimum a decade before even thinking about touching that shit again.

                Same thing happened with Krakoa, really. The only books that actually gave a damn about trying to nation build were X-Men Red and Immortal X-men, and one could argue that at the end of the day they were more interested in building up Arakko and in setting up the rivalry between Essex and Irene/Raven that basically came to take center stage over even Moira in the narrative. All the other books were either doing their own plots or just jerking the mutants' superiority off without actually bothering to lay the rest of the foundation down.

                >No one actually died.
                *Except the mutants in Orchis' concentration camps

                Not really. You got the same amount that they put into Cable's Providence, which was just enough to get by to tell the story they wanted of Cable's attempts to save the world going sour due to personal issues and the obstacles of a world not ready for his kind of benevolent rule. Krakoa was always going to be half-baked from the fact it was written by Hickman, who loves his grandiose ideas but never sticks the landing, and the fact of the matter was it was clear nobody else gave even half a shit about the boring parts of world-building like the logistics or the administration. They only wanted the "fun" parts like the covert ops and the ruling council backstabbing and plotting, which are perfect material for a superhero comic but aren't enough to properly establish a world.

                Frankly, Utopia was a far more put together attempt to build a nation, considering we actually saw Cyclops having to deal with both the issues of guiding a very skeptical mutant refugee populace AND dealing with the concerns raised by a neighboring state in the form of Mayor Sinclair of San Francisco. Krakoa didn't even get up to that level in the end.

                You absolutely did not. Krakoa actually established and focused on the drug manufacturing, the leverage of that, how it was distributing those, how some nations refused to allow them, the smuggling of them, the diplomatic relations between different nations, X-corp was terrible but showcasing other aspects of the economy and trade was at least attempted, everything related to mysterium, X-Factor’s CIA shit, those hellfire galas, nightcrawler’s mutant religion… they did a lot to actually albeit superficially show how things worked.

                To which I'm saying that's maybe fine for you, but for the majority of readers that's not nearly good enough or even remotely interesting enough. Especially cause at the end of the day, shit wasn't meant to last longer than two years but people demanded it stay and they did fricking nothing of note with that extra time. The X-office doesn't deserve a pat on the head for half-assing this shit, they deserve a slap upside the head for being given the keys to the kingdom and fricking it up.

            Honestly, wherever you like. Dredd's episodic format means that there's hundreds of six page short stories from a huge variety of excellent writers and artists, as well as some fantastic longer ones that stand up with any of the classics of the genre. Its remarkably consistent almost fifty years of a weekly comic plus all the other Dredd material like the Megazine, spin offs etc. If you want a big, big chunk o' Dredd to start with, Case Files 5 is a phonebook sized collection that's a good way into the series and has the classic Judge Death (which Anderson first appeared in, alongside longterm nemesis Judge Death) and the seminal epic "The Apocalypse War". For somke other recs, try looking for "Judge Death Lives", "The Judge Child Quest", "The Pitt", "Mandroid", "Origins", "America", "Judgement on Gotham" (aka the first one with Batman), "Incubus" (aka the one with the Xenomorphs), "Mechanismo" and the much more recent "Harvey". There's a range of themes, styles and lengths there so you should find one that you like! Don't forget that there's a whole lot of other excellent stories in 2000AD, some based in Dredd's Universe (Psi Judge Anderson, The Low Life, The Simping Detective, Shimura / Hondo City Law, Devlin Waugh, Insurrection, Lawless...) and many not (like Shakara, storytimed just this week!

          Betsy was a spy and part of a group of telepathic spies that did a lot of bad shit for the British government. She also mindraped Havok when he tried to warn them that the Brood was back because she didn't know who he was (and then suggested that the team MURDER him because he later came back to the mansion and caught them talking about faking their deaths) and because of this, the Brood manage to get a foothold set up and several hives, wiping out the Guild of Assassins plus killing countless people in Colorado and the midwest/southwest, along with mindcontrolling Havok as her mouthpeace to manipulate Dazzler and Colossus and ultimately Alex and herself into going into the Siege Perilous.

            Not really, credit where it's due, looking back Cyclops always was kind of prone to maybe caring more about how shit made him feel or how he thought it looked on him than actually having strong convictions. It unironically does resemble Magneto in that regard a lot and it was a thing for a long time even as far back as Claremont.

          is it crazy to anyone else that mutants are known to discard mutants who no longer have access to their powers? those dumbasses had a whole bus full of non powered kids killed because they didnt have the foresight to think that they would still have massive bullseyes on their backs, but no powers to defend themselves. its like how thet dickrode the SHIT out of franklin richards when they thought they could recruit him to come to krakoa against his parents wishes, even honeypotted him with kitty,(double entrendre) and reed not liking their agressiveness and the fact that val wasnt invited tried to put astop to it until franklin was of age to make the choice himself got mindhacked and robbed by a pair of buttholes, then they came to the conclusion that franklin wasnt a mutant anyway and wasnt allowed on krakoa. the fact that this shit was swept under the fricking rug, when it should have been a major issue for the final arc( yknow, making inhibitors mutants could wear so they could walk around without being murdered) is just lazy writing

                It's like they've pushed the concept of the shared universe to breaking point by trying to grab mutant characters from other books, constantly writing a world that looks completely unrecognizable to the other Marvel books, and abusive treatment of other Marvel heroes by making them look bad for not solving all the X-Men's problems for them. It's enough to make you want the X-Men permanently separated from the rest of Marvel into their own universe so all of this stops happening.

                >Do you think they would kick out, say, Cyclops if HIS mutant gene was successfully cured by Moira?
                I mean there's the page in this very thread where Cyclops kicks Chuck out, but during the Krakoa era yes I absolutely believe that. Krakoa is the mutants at their most corrupt and ethnostate-y. Of course they're gonna kick out someone "pretending to be a mutant" who also has no powers and is therefore of no use to them. That's why they wanted Franklin to begin with, he's one of the most powerful people on Earth and they want him to drink the kool aid

                >That's why they wanted Franklin to begin with, he's one of the most powerful people on Earth and they want him to drink the kool aid
                A lot of the readers who are so salty about this are exactly the same. They don't care about Franklin as a character at all, they just saw all mutant characters as property of the X-books, and that Franklin's rightful place was as the biggest gun in Krakoa's arsenal, they're reacting like something that was never truly theirs in the first place has been stolen from them. It's a very similar situation with Wanda, only with the addition of people whose only interest in her was dependent on who her father was.

                That's always been the thing I hate about the people b***hing about it. Like I can think of maybe two instances where Franklin being a mutant was relevant, and neither of them have him in a very big role (Days of Future Past and Onslaught), the rest of the time he's a non-factor to X-Men stuff but they act like he's some key figure to the X-Men books.
                As shitty as the stuff they have done and continue to do with Wanda at least she and Pietro actually did have strong ties to the X-Men from their inception. That being said they still were at their best during Avengers books (well besides Pietro's stint in X-Factor which was also great)

                That's true for Pietro, who was a presence in the X-books periodically when the Avengers weren't using him, but Wanda doesn't really have anything to do with the X-books after the original Brotherhood imploded in 1965 until House of M, an event she barely even appears in. For her absolutely nothing of value is lost by her not being a mutant and not being related to Magneto.

                Even in AU settings where the X-Men office could do anything they wanted with Wanda, all they've ever done is kill her to make Magneto feel sad.

                Mutiegays are greedy af. They dumped on Wanda for years but sperg out at her not being a mutant.

                It made no sense at all, they spent years hating her and wanting her dead, then chimped out about her ties to the X-books being retconned away like she was their property being stolen from them. Neither those X-gays nor Marvel seem to understand how those years resulted in people who like Wanda largely being fine with the retcons, and not wanting her to have anything to do with mutants ever again. If only the people working on her book understood this.

                Let's be honest, 99% of the time it was just a trivia fact for Wanda too. And with the absolute state of what the X-books have become, they're both far better off being in a position where they have nothing to do with mutants anymore. Unfortunately even when she's not a mutant and not Magneto's daughter, Marvel's writers still can't see past those things for her. At least Franklin's fully free from it.

                Good, we're in agreement on that. That's all I'm saying, that Krakoa was a profound mistake on par with the Original Sin itself in terms of what it says about the X-Men's current level of morality.

Mutants are somewhat accepted in public, you still have Mutant Supremacists and some public fears but they exist as equal people.

                We have some data on that. Originally they were Neanderthals and were supposed to fight it out with the Deviants and Eternals to see who'd be the dominant species because this is an experiment the Celestials have run multiple times [Deviant Skrulls won on the Skrull homeworld, for example], the Eternals seemingly tapped out/misinterpreted things, the X-Gene Neanderthals got fricked out of existence by homosexual Sapiens' immediate ancestor who wasn't even supposed to exist, and the Deviants fought it out with them and the surviving elderspawn races until they managed to dominate almost all of the planet only for the Celestials to randomly come back and decide to overturn the results of their own experiment as a key part of the chain of gigaclusterfricks that were the Great Cataclysm, allowing homosexual Sapiens to rise to dominance in the Hyborian Age even as the various Elderspawn tried to finally bounce back.

                Mutants are literally a genetic dead end that lost the evolutionary arms race to literally some random fricking guys who weren't even supposed to be there.

              Which is fricking moronic and one of the main reasons why krakoa kept getting criticized. It would have been fine if it was to show their hypocrisy that would then lead to a revelation for most of the characters, but the writers are too shitty at their jobs and you just see the constant pity party all of these mutants wind up throwing at each other. I forget which issue it was, but the X-Men saved a bunch of mutants from a big disaster and instead of thanking them those same mutants threw a massive fricking fit because "you X-Men are a slightly different kind of mutant from us real actual mutants and therefore that makes you and everything you do bad", but we're supposed to feel bad for those innocent victims still.

                Hickman just went the easy route of the planet of hats trope and plot>characterization. It's a lot easier than letting different mutants have different thoughts on Krakoa. Like, how did none of the classical heroic X-Men characters have any issues with Apocalypse and Sinister being allowed to live on Krakoa let alone be a part of the Quiet Council?!
                >B-But Wolverine didn't like the Crucible and Scott and Jean resigned from the Council
                Logan made no effort in trying to stop the Crucible or be vocal on how fricked up it was and Scott and Jean basically resigned to have plausible deniability and did nothing to try and abolish the Council.

                They could have quite easily fixed/undone this by saying that Xavier brainwashed everyone but a few key people to make them all easier to get along together. Make it part of that phony Krakoa language dump. Then when it all hits the fan you can have Xavier going "it was for the greater good, you have to believe me!" while the others have various kinds of breakdown. Hell, you could do that just with Beast - Xavier needed a CIA type guy he completely trusted to do all the bad things without needing to know the details and getting his hands dirty, why not just give Hank the little push over the edge he needed to be a useful tool.

                Especially when you compare his efforts to those of true believers like Exodus and Apocalypse, who managed to put together more coherent (if completely psychotic) cults and had meaningful impact on mutant society, and the amused/benign contempt his peers in the elite mutant caste held him. Combining your hippy cult with a police force made it obvious it was a tool of societal control rather than a genuine good faith... uh... faith, and the fact that the vague lib "In this House we believe" style rules got co-opted to mean whatever the elites on the council wanted should have (a) destroyed his faith and (b) been completly obvious from the start.

    Here's the thing about American comics. Everyone has their own ideas about how a book should be run. The current writer may feel strongly that the previous writer was wrong and work to "correct" their mistakes, and the following writer may do the same. Multiple writers working on multiple concurrent stories in the same universe may vehemently disagree with each other. This is part of why American comics are such a clusterfrick at times.

    And the X-Men are the worst off. Because X-Men is in many ways concerned with real-world ideologies regarding races, nations and equality, different writers and editors will inevitably have INCREDIBLY strong feelings about it, and many will inevitably strive for different messages. Some of those messages may conflict. Worse still, several writers don't even necessarily care about those conflicts and so they may establish something that inadvertently contradicts what other writers have done. And this is why X-Men in particular is in a perpetual state of frickery. No one's really on the same page. Not really.

        And that’s why there’s plenty of manga that have shitty endings, meanderings middle parts because they can’t think what to do next, lots of fluff where the story doesn’t progress, etc. etc. etc. that makes most people drop the manga and not complete it.

                Everything the X-Men are doing in response to Orchis, retroactively justifies Orchis in principle which is amazing because Orchis is the most cartoonishly villainous organisation in a fricking comic book setting. On top of recruiting from every major Marvel villainous organisation the whole thing is a front for a Dominion trying to secure the eternal survival of it's existence in the future.

ORCHIS goons don't even warrant that.

    I think all uses of Xavier suffer from him not really serving a purpose in the comics. They killed him off in the 1960s because they wanted to have the young cast go out and have adventures on their own, and then he was brought back (before that was totally common) probably for no better reason than Neal Adams wanted to draw him.

    As far back as the Silver Age he's always being portrayed as a guy with hidden agendas who keeps secrets from the X-Men, but writers also go to the opposite extreme and portray him as some kind of saint, and his portrayal kind of ping-pongs between saint and scoundrel, but it's all related to the problem that the X-Men don't need him around.

      They killed him off in AvX and the X-books were worse off for it. The same for him being sidelined after Decimation. The X-Men really lost their way when you didn't have Xavier around as a moral voice with Cyclops leading and instead becoming more and more closer to Magneto over time.

          This, to be honest. If the X-Men books would just stay in their own lane and leave the rest of Marvel alone, and the rest of Marvel just quietly retconning it's mutant characters into having some other origin, a lot of us who've been complaining would probably just stop paying attention to whatever gay racewar nonsense the mutants are doing.

      >>Kang's entire future hinges on this happening, since the Apocalypse mini from the 90s firmly establishes the fact that Kang and Apocalypse's bad future is a binary situation where you either get Kang's future or Apocalypse (and from him Cable/Stryfe's) future with no way of them co-existing.

      all mutants from Earth you get Kang's future and Apocalypse's future never happens. Let the mutants stay on Earth and Kang's future never happens, and you get Apocalypse's future which leads to Cable/Stryfe happening.

      Yeah that's the real issue. Unless Claremont is allowed to write modern continuity I doubt anyone will ever care enough to fix it, and making Betsy gay has essentially preserved her being Captain Britain for all time

      No it doesn't. Betsy as Captain Britain has only happened because Hickman's frick toy demanded it because she alone was dead set on making Betsy the MCU Captain Britain to spite Henry Cavill who was rumored to have had a standing offer to play Brian/Cap Britain.

      And given how badly Kwannon flopped by herself, ten gets you twenty that they body swap again and kill off Kwannon/Betsy's original body or say "frick it...." and put Betsy in a bikinni and make her a white British version of the Jim Lee Asian Psylockes and have her frick Angel again for Uncanny X-Force nostalgia while sending Rachel back into comic book limbo.

          tbf to Tini Howard on that one I doubt any of the other writers could have done a much better job with X-corp, it simply is not the type of story that is well suited to big two comics writers i.e. complex detailed story where the financial drama is key to how it progresses which requires a readership that is either informed about such economic systems or the story has enough runway to explain those systems to the reader efficiently, modern comics are just ill-suited to that.
          still don't understand what was going on with that Monet characterization in that book though.

        For better or worse, the official canon at that time was that Steve Rogers managed to get through WW2 without killing anyone, was strongly against killing and that the first time he'd ever killed was a mid 80s story where he shot a terrorist.

        And to be fair, Galactic Storm wasn't about "killing in war time", it was about executing a head of state for war crimes. It's as much about whether the Avengers had any right or jurisdiction to do so as whether they should kill, and whether the Supreme Intelligence counted as being alive or just a computer, Iron Man's position was that they were just destroying a computer.

    Basically all the heroes of the X-Men got shat on because Hickman wanted his X-Men run where he just ripped off Dune and Gaiman Miracleman. The X-Men are revealed to not actually accomplish anything and fail. Meanwhile, Xavier, Magneto and Moira despite seeing how things pan out don't come forward with knowledge that would actually help the X-Men in their mission because they want to keep in control. In HOXPOX, Hickman literally just goes "Oh yeah, everything that the X-Men did meant nothing, it was all gonna go to shit and Magneto/Xavier didn't even believe in the shit that they were spouting".

    Moira, a character who was characterised as being unambiguously kind and good, proof the dream was feasible was retconned into being a manipulative b***h who actually never gave a shit about anyone, who was retconned into basically letting herself get raped to birth Proteus and being a discount Bene Gesserit.

    Meanwhile, you have a bunch of writers desperately trying to convince us that the supervillains who are in Krakoa are actually "totally misunderstood", which is probably the most prominent with Greycrow and Apocalypse. Greycrow went from a guy who literally murdered kids for sport, had been Sinister's number 2 for decades and helped him literally round up German concentration camp victims to send to Sinister's own camps with a grin and a smile, to "My daddy hit me and I actually didn't like murdering people".

    Meanwhile Hickman did to Apocalypse what he did to Doom. Wanked him off and ignored the central joke, that being that Apocalypse was never what he preached and absolutely a pathetic wretch whose power came from the blessing of the gods, not his own strength like he claims. Hell, he got rid of the Celestial stuff entirely despite it being essential to Apocalypse's characterisation and instead did "Mutant magic".

    It's such a goddamn awful era of X-Men and as people get more distance, I think they'll be able to see that.

          Apoc's claim to fame is that his original set of appearances was pretty solid, the highlight of a run that was rapidly decaying and burning through the good will of a just starting to die industry, and that while we didn't realize it at the time he was the last big impressive grisly villain who would ever have actual stakes or hype not because he was all *that* good but because everyone after him comes into existence in a time period where the homosexuals at Marvel had finally realized Jim was never coming back to tard wrangle them and DC no longer had to try and compete with a tard-wrangled marvel, so everyone could just do literally whatever the frick they wanted and nothing mattered anymore.

            An important point about Apocalypse is that in addition to a lot of his earlier stories being pretty strong for the time, he's a comic villain who was PERFECTED in an adaptation. The 90s cartoon version of him is a very popular villain, all Marvel really needed to do was copy that, instead of constantly adding more baggage, retcons and changes onto him. He's also one of those characters a lot of X-Men fandom has developed a real hateboner for, and constantly dismissing him as some jobber that's always getting beaten up, which isn't really fair or accurate. He's one of those villains who just escapes when his plan is thwarted a lot more often than actually getting physically defeated by a hero, though like with Juggernaut there are times when it did happen just so some writer could show off how powerful /theirguy/ was.

            Right here on Cinemaphile this week we've had people making false claims about Apocalypse "constantly jobbing to literal children" which isn't remotely true but some people just hate him that much. Nothing's going to ever win those people over, but just write him like in the cartoon and everyone else will enjoy it.

      Doom was always a funny villain because while he never really fully redeemed he's still flexible enough to where you buy the team ups and even when they do it's always with someone keeping an eye on him and short lived. They don't call on Doom to be a teacher at the future foundation.

        It helps that one of the few people who gets Doom and in turn gets the most sympathy from Doom, Valeria Richards, will straight up agree that her uncle Doom is a bad guy and does plenty of bad things despite doting on her and being motivated more than once to do the right thing with her encouragement. That's the difference between Doom's treatment and Apocalypse's, really. Doom for all his greatness and potential for nobility is a self-serving snake in the grass and not even the people who sympathize him ever try to say otherwise, while with Apocalypse the X-men themselves were practically breaking their spines bending over backwards to both accommodate him and apologize on his behalf to explain away how he was never truly as evil as several decades of comic book history showed him to be.

        Oh yeah, you can buy team ups because the heroes treat him like an actual dangerous dude. At the same time, his origin for his hatred with Richards is so funny. It's literally "I burned my own face off out of spite."

        The last time the mythology of Apocalypse was interesting imho was Uncanny X-Force where Remender tied him directly to the celestials and that he was just a cosmic pawn. Remender Evan was probably the closet we got to the character being interesting post Simonson.

        Greycrow was already like that before Krakoa. And all of Sinister’s henchmen have been established as having been cloned countless times so the surviving version of him breaking the mold works.

        In Hellions, Wells has him go "Oh I had an abusive upbringing and I was tricked into thinking I was doing the right thing" as his motivation across the cloning etc. In the actual stories of Greycrow, he never was like "I'm a well intentioned dude", he had a hard on for murdering the shit out of people which included murdering kids because they were simply defective mutants.

        No, anon, they're not fascist cause that implies they've got personalities beyond "Herp derp kill dem muties". AIM minions are at least all greedy self-interested bastards. Hydra agents will at least attest to being either too stupid to grasp what they're getting into or genuinely believe a world under HYDRA rule will lead to better things. ORCHIS goons don't even warrant that. They're faceless meat puppets so that readers can imagine them as whatever alt-right chud of the week they're angry at being smashed to a pulp or ripped apart gorily without worrying about the moral consequences of unleashing one of the most evil alien species upon a bunch of duped goons working for robot supremacists. So calling them "fascist" is giving them far more characterization than Duggan actually bothered with.

        ORCHIS are unironically the biggest collection of villain sues and also the most pathetic collection of antagonist. Literally come out of nowhere, and the X-Men go "Oh, these are the greatest threats we've ever faced before" and Hickman dedicates an entire page to go "They totally trounce the X-Men guys!" Hell, their leader was literally just Baron Harkonnen minus the pedo shit

        I might hate the majority of Duggan's run, but I like he actually tried to put actually established characters on ORCHIS instead of Hickman's donut steels who no one cares about.
