Now this is an X-Men team!! If Blue and Gold wasn't able to excite you then you should consider picking this one up. The art is great, the pacing is good and the ending got me hooked.

Not a bad issue. A lot of stuff is building but I felt this issue was a bit lacking in tension. It's hard to care too much about Maria HIll's stuff and we don't have enough answers to really care.
