X-Men #7 Review

This was a very interesting issue. We take a break from the action and focus more on the philosophical and spiritual. This issue covers a topic that many might have a different opinion on. Do you allow a depowered mutant to die so they can be reborn by the Five with their powers again? This question sparks a debate with a few different mutants, with Cyclops seeking out Nightcrawlers thoughts after a conversation with Wolverine.
I really enjoyed this issue a lot. I really like how we are going very in-depth into Krakoa and all the aspects of this new nation. I could see it being very hard for those depowered mutants to live on Krakoa and see all their friends running around with their powers. It makes it even harder knowing that if they die they would be reborn with their powers again. The mutants have allowed the process of death and rebirth calling it Crucible, but some still don’t agree with it. But should you deny a mutant a full life as who they were meant to be? I loved how this topic sparked something in Nightcrawler, and he has plans now for the future of the mutants.
Overall this was a great book, really diving into the philosophical and spiritual nature of this new naton of mutants. It brings many new layers the helps to flesh out this bold new world. I highly recommend picking this one up.
