A pretty entertaining issue if you don't think too hard about the inconstancies, like why would the Juggernaut shoot the X-Men's Blackbird out of the sky if he was seeking their help? In the end Chuck Austen's work marks a return to the safer confines of the elements that have worked for this book in the past, but this isn't to say that the material doesn't engage the interest. Chuck Austen has surprised me with how well he's managed to keep the material from feeling like we've seen this all before, as he's kept the action at a pretty frantic pace, and even the more familiar elements have been enjoyable, as the writing acknowledges that it's not exactly breaking any new ground. There's a nice sense of excitement to this story, and if nothing else this book earns itself kudos for its treatment of Iceman, and the for bringing back Havok into the X-Men universe.
