An issue that feels a little too familiar as Judd Winick offers up another world that has been taken over, and it falls upon the Exiles to battle against seemingly impossible odds to save this world. Now the back-story that he creates for this world does a great job of drawing upon an element of X-continuity that I must admit I'm rather partial to as I was a huge fan of the New Mutants before Rob Liefeld and the worst excesses of the 1990s hit the title. The threat that is created is also pretty exciting, as how can one not be intrigued by the promise shown on that final page, and the much hyped death of a founding member of the group adds a nice sense of danger to this adventure.
