Let's see we have this obvious anti mutant agenda, what's the best way to stir up shit? Let's march into their home and tell our stupid shit to their faces.
It's funny to me that the third review sees Trask as a levelheaded guy instead of an expert manipulator, he is obviously a mirror to Norman.
It's not so much that he is a level-headed guy, but that he appears to be one in this issue. The X-Men are, perhaps understandably, circling the wagons, while Trask is out there distancing himself from the violence and rebuking his followers for using anti-mutant slurs. We know he's the bad guy, but he sure looks like the good guy from the public's POV.
The Norman reference is right on. Yeah, he's the bad guy, but even when someone like Hawkeye calls him out on it, Norman spins it to his own benefit. It's one of the reasons I'm enjoying Dark Reign (and why I enjoyed Utopia): the bad guys aren't just frothing madmen.
