    Stuart Immonen's work is a bit looser on this issue than I'm come to expect from him, but since he's got his normal inker working with him, I guess this is a deliberate decision on his part. Now the lack of background detailing is a bit troubling, but truth be told, the art still holds up quite nicely, as the character interaction benefits from a wide range of facial expressions from Colossus' display of anger, to Mojo's sad expression when he come to realize that he's going to have to kill off his favourite contestant. I also had to smile at Kitty's face when she notices Jean and Scott are "braining" again, and the final panel of the issue does a nice job of selling Colossus' agreement with the plan. There's also some nice work on the book's action sequences, from the opening sequence which does an effectively subtle job of introducing us to Longshot mutant gift, to the equally enjoyable scene where Warren gets to plan the role of sinister villain.
