X-Men: Phoenix - Warsong #2

X-Men: Phoenix - Warsong #2
So, apparently this book has nothing to do with the Phoenix entity, which leaves me wondering, why does it include "Phoenix" in the title?
So here's the point of this issue: the Stepford Cuckoos are not actually children...they're Weapon Plus constructs. Made of nanomachines, unable to truly perish, and actually five of a myriad number - and I can't help but wonder if each of the host of Cuckoos has a name, and if so, who had the arduous task of naming them all?
When the Cuckoos came to the school, they implanted psychic blocks in all the X-Men so that nobody would ever question where they had come from, or realize that they hadn't ever been medically scanned. Now Emma has removed those blocks.
And the three "living" Cuckoos have returned to the Weapon Plus facility and restarted the flow of time there, and the two "dead" Cuckoos are on their way.
That's it.
So, no longer ass, since it's obvious that this series does have a point - namely to remake the interesting Stepford Cuckoos into uninteresting Weapon Plus constructs. I don't agree with it, but it does have a point. So, OKAY. Let's see where it goes from here.
