    The one redeeming element of this issue would have to be the fact that Salvador Larroca was given the opportunity to put the X-Men in space suits, as it made for an interesting change of locale for the team, as it's not often that the team ventures off planet. Now putting the characters in identical space suits makes it a little difficult to figure out which character is talking, though if one does pay close attention during the airlock sequence you do get a look at the numbers that each X-Man is sporting on their suits. As such, this does help sort out some of the confusion, and the art also does take steps to give readers a look through the glass of the helmets. The art also makes good use of the idea that these characters are moving through space, as they do float around the panels largely free of any sense of gravity. The big final attack is also quite impressive, as one can't help but be a little concerned that Lorna has that much power when her grasp on sanity is so tenuous. Read Full Review
