What you need to know:
Kitty Pyrde, Aston Allen and Apocalypse have been kidnapped. Multiple Man seems to have newfound powers as his small army overwhelmed Storm’s team. Jean leads a team to tackle some crazy events taking place across the world, the kids are left back at the mansion surrounded by a human protest and Legion knocks on the door in a slick suit and long hair.

What just happened?

Bishop and Iceman make a daring rescue of the human population taking out a couple of hungry dinosaurs afterward they certainly had an awkward exchange, Storm’s team are in trouble however and require assistance. Upon arrival Jean clearly underestimated what Jamie and his Multiple men are up to.

Meanwhile Legion is looking forward to saving the world with the X-kids, however, he reacts badly when he realizes that Madrox has gone mad, on battlefield things go from bad to worse as the Multiple men turn deadly and two X-men are really hurt but who?

It takes the sheer might of Jean and Psylocke combining their telepathic abilities to finally shut down the Mutiple men, meanwhile Legion loses it and attacks the X-kids can the hold their own?

The other X-men enter an underground bunker I wonder what the hidden secrets they will find? Upon arriving back at the mansion the X-men join the skirmish but before they really get going new players join and let’s just say it’s with a bang.

Final thoughts:

Alright, this issue flowed for me full of action as the teams work together to resolve the recent crisis and we start to see the revelation of whom planned what so to speak. Injuring two of the least used characters seems to be a theme in this series, Anole has already been taken out of the equation.

A couple of moments impressed me, Jean, asking permission to mind link showing that she takes her powers responsibility as well as well as valuing her teammates.

The other moment I liked was where Iceman does not remember Legion, however, Bishop and Jean who have been elsewhere as in dead or generally elsewhere knew of him and was not there when Legion put the whammy on everyone.

Bishop giving a protestor back his mutant hate sign whilst helping him reminds me of the Bishop we used to have and the character I loved back then standing up to bigots by being better then them.

Another moment is Legion has a telekinetic shield up and the X-men are trying to attack him to no avail like the Original X-men vs Magneto nostalgia rules.

This story feels more like an event as we see some character development, in other words, I think there are too many and I would enjoy a more core team then a big roaster as many of them might as well have not been there. So far I am enjoying this series and I think it is a good X-title to pick up

I have been into comics since the early 90's and my main passion has been X-men I collect books, figures and any collectiables I can get my hands on. For shoot the breeze I have the pleasure opening my eyes to new worlds and adventures. I also do the Across the Pond Trades where I get an opportunity to look at trade paperbacks and review them via our YouTube channel. I also have my own Facebook page and Youtube called Smerdp which is full of plastic goodness. Many Thanks Paul
