    John Cassaday turns in another fine effort, as his highly detailed, photo-realistic art makes it quite easy to accept the delayed release. The double page spread that gives readers our first look at what's going on inside the Danger Room gets the issue off to an amazing start. The visual appearance of the entity for most of the issue is also quite unsettling, as how can one not love the twisted appearance of the body that the creature is making use of?

    I'm sure plenty of people will find the concept of this issue to be kind of stupid but I really enjoyed it. The X-Men's training facility develops a mind of its own and turns against them. I thought it was awesome. Kitty Pride has some great moments with this mystery villain while the main X-Men try to free her. There's a pretty cool reveal at the end too. I loved it.
