It’s simply looking that ridiculously sharp!”

Battle of the Atomwas the perfect launching pad for X-Men: No More Humans, in a lot of different ways,” stated writer Mike Carey. “It raised, in a very direct and powerful way, the question of how the X-Men influence the world around them, for good or bad – and it introduced Raze – a fascinating new villain, conflicted and with his own scary and consistent agenda.  I came in at just the right time to bounce off that.”
