    Billy Tan does another incredible job here. This title has never looked this good until now. Read Full Review

    IGN - May 4, 2011

    While executed competently, this issue could have benefited from a more thorough investigation of Magneto's motivations. Readers are never clued into why Magneto has such hatred for this particular enemy. Nor are they made to understand why Magneto couldn't simply have killed the man himself. Then again, attention paid to these areas might have overburdened the script. As always, single issue tales are forced to maintain an extremely delicate and precarious balance between exposition and efficiency. Read Full Review

    There might be a story in this issue, maybe even some characterization, but none of it feels like art. This is a comic; It should be a marriage of words and images into something else, but instead it comes across like barely a short tale. Rick Remender is clearly trying to establish the moral standings of each of his characters in this group. This issue delivers the understanding that death in Wolverine's world is stark and a non-event, but it didn't need to show us that through a book that is both as well. Read Full Review
