With the Morlocks committing terrorist acts, it's up to the X-Men to stop them and figure out why these normally-peaceful mutants have turned to violence. Guest-starring Storm and her friends in the Fantastic Four!
Uncanny X-Men #489 was a great read. I know it seems like I hate a lot on X-Men and Uncanny X-Men.

Brubaker continues his Search for Magneto arc and this issue proves to be continuing his build up / decompression phase. By this I mean nothing really happens this issue.
