    Cyclops is pissed Jean invaded his thoughts like that and Colossus is furious and actually attacked Jean before the fight was quickly broken up. This leads to the schism in the team with Colossus leading a secret mission to reclaim Northstar that consists of several X-Men, all pumped on Banshee, including Cyclops, Rogue, Nightcrawler and a few others, leaving in a Blackbird at the end of the issue.

Big panels are used throughout but they do not detract from the flow of the story and rarely does it venture into giant sized spread pages which are common in many Marvel titles and which serve little purpose other than as nice mini pin ups. Some of the story elements in this comic have insured me picking it up in the future, if only to see which X-Men characters are given the ultimate treatment next. Read Full Review
