Besides that, I also find Mystique’s role in this issue a little hard to swallow. She presents herself to Scott as a friend, subtly hinting at the idea that the Jean Grey School is headed in the wrong direction. While not clear at first whether or not an ulterior motive is present, that issue is quickly resolved at the end of the book. Through this exchange between the two, Scott seems a little too unsuspicious; you would think that Charles Xavier would have trained his X-Men better than that. That being said, perhaps there is a role of inexperience playing into this, which I guys I would have an easier time buying.
I’m sad to say that All-New X-Men #7 was a fairly mediocre read. While we see the beginnings of a plot that will no doubt begin unfolding as we move on, the character development and storytelling in this issue seemed a little static.
