    Given she's been kicking around this book for the better part of a year, it's about time that Stacy X got some time in the spotlight, and I'll even concede that Joe Casey does some fairly interesting things with the character's rather limited development. The idea of her continuing to use her powers for her own personal gain is a fairly novel idea in these pages, as I believe Dazzler's the only other X-Man that had herself another fairly successful career thanks to her mutant gift, before joining the X-Men. Now the problem that Stacy X solves in this issue does feel a bit contrived, as the dying man's crisis does seem to be tailor-made for Stacy X's power to solve, and the ending isn't all that difficult to see coming. However the issue does offer up a better than average, "Welcome to the X-Men, rookie" speech from the welcome wagon that is Wolverine, and the secondary plot involving the Vanisher & his power-granting drugs looks interesting.
