PHOENIX PART 3 The quest to learn if Jean Grey is, in fact, the Phoenix reaches a shattering conclusion! And the mystery surrounding the X-Men's newest member, the Magician, deepens--as Nick Fury starts putting the pieces together!
The cover, with Jean beset by goblins, is an interesting way to go with her temptation by her omega mutant potential. Kirkman is playing on a lot of riffs here, and juggling a lot of characters. He seems to have traded the Rogue/Gambit/Iceman shenanigans for the Kurt/Peter morality conflict, and hes yet to bring Dazzler back into the mix with Angel.

Ultimate X-Men is a title going nowhere and issue #71 is just impressive as the rest of Kirkman's run. Ultimate X-Men used to be a great read. It definitely has not been a good read since Kirkman took over the writing duties. I think that Marvel needs to seriously consider a creative team change in order to shake up Ultimate X-Men.
