Should the bear not look more.... humanoid? He literally looks like a talking bear. I get he's an animal mutated and not a human mutated into a bear but like... the Turtles don't literally look like talking turtles standing upright, nor do Bebop, Rocksteady and anybody else.

Venus or Jennika? I'm not really a fan of either, but appreciate the creativity of Jennika's origin. I hope she reverts back to normal so there can be the original 4 again.

It was Null all along! I’m unreasonably excited to see them actually be used!

And pretty much in how I would expect them to be. Neat. Also love that we brought back the implication of Null’s beyond earth scope.

Kindof a bittersweet ending. Mutant Town has allies and is coming together, Ivan’s even turned over a new leaf, something I didn’t expect, but Null’s propaganda is definitely having an effect. I’m actually sort of like the social media deluge at the end. Even if I roll my eyes at a few bits.

This though?


That’s pretty funny.

If I had one complaint, I feel like if I was Madam Null I could have made my argument to Jennika in a little less “Ha! I’m evil!” Way. You know:

“People are in chaos and unfulfilled Jennika, like you were. You found purpose in the Foot, and now in your new body. We give people a place to belong, a world where everyone is designed to do what they need to do for our corporate good. Instead Hob unleashed chaos. How much suffering is going on every day? Now, with the concern about monsters, and seeing how dangerous unbound mutants can be, *flicks monitors on* people will be compelled to action. Mutant Rights? Freedom? Freedom to spoil in a fake freedom like everyone else? I don’t think so.”

Sorry for the random fanfiction. Anyway, this was a fun series, well done!

Wow, this was really, really good! Like probably the best issue of the series in general since #100, and it's not even close! I kept hoping it would go on forever, the action was top notch and that final confrontation... Damn. It's on now! Feels like a logical endgame for the comic. This is exactly what I expected to get when Hob set off that bomb. This is what Mutant Town should be like all the way through. Sad that this mini is only three issues long, I wanted MOOOAAAR!

I think the reason Null didn't do that is because Jennika is no longer the sort of asset she would be interested in, considering the mix-and-match mutants she mentioned at the start of their little pow-wow. She just doesn't care about not appearing to be evil, and in fact even delights in it.

Right, so there is a "the end" on the last page, but there is going to be another three issues so I don't know what's going on. Are there two story arcs in this mini or does it just mark the halfway point of one story?

This is probably true. I was just thinking that a villain taking something evil and word weaseling it into something good sounding is a very 'devilish' trope.

Also true. Though I guess in this particular instance Null had already maxxed out her devilish traits score on the little stunt with the hologram.

Speaking of devilish, I wonder if this version of the character also grows more demonic as she does evil deeds? And how the hell (ha!) does she travel between dimensions anyway? So many questions... Please get Null into the ongoing, stat!

i enjoyed it, shame jenny didn't have a way to record null's little speech and post that on the net. i think stock would suddenly start going into a nose dive.
