What you need to know:
Kitty Pyrde, Aston Allen and Apocalypse are missing, Multiple Man was kidnapped by Legion and he used him to create dupes to host his personalities ready for war. After stopping the hordes of dinosaurs and Jamie’s dupes the X-men return home to face off against Legion and the X-kids are holding their own. The mansion is then was blown to pieces by the arrival of Magneto, Angel, Omega Red and the Blob the four Horseman of Peace.
What just happened?
With Armour surrounding the X-men and Jean projecting their deaths these new Horsemen believe they have achieved the goal of ridden the world of the X-men so peace can exist. We soon learn that they report into X-man who clearly has a plan which included the kidnapping of Pyrde, Aston and Apocalypse.
X-man sends his horseman out into the world to prevent wars Storm’s team come across a war-torn country without guns but are still willing to fight each other and get caught in the crossfire. Jean’s team is made an offer from Omega Red and The Blob but will they accept.
Also, it may be worth mentioning that Beast has been having a little arc throughout these series hopefully this will build to something bigger.
Meanwhile, what do you get when you add the X-kids and Legion together a Multiple problems or maybe a solution?
Nate Grey was always meant to be powerful so even thou I have never cared for him as a character I enjoyed his messiah complex in this issue. Controlling the Four Horseman, projecting a message to the world he could be the most dangerous mutant in the world because he believes in his insane plans for world peace. This is what Nathan Dayspring Summers perhaps would have done if not for the techno virus holding him back, remember providence?
I also enjoyed the part when Jean Grey put the crazy talking Legion to sleep the X-kids did not agree with this as he was trying to help and should not be punished for this they tell Jean they disagree with this and I can see the rift beginning between young and old but this wasn’t the only time in this issue that it happened.
I felt like we skipped back two issues catastrophe across the globe x-men splitting into two teams to advert it, also one thing that bugged the hell out of me Jubilee is fine and in the next fight after being stabbed right through her lower abdomen, surely she needed some rest after that to heal also Northstar is there too, adult X-men heal fast young stay in the infirmary.
Seeing Legion crazier than ever was brilliant and I thoroughly enjoy the role in this series.
