    A fairly entertaining issue that is somewhat undone by its rather hurried finish, but to be completely honest I should admit that I've never found Black Tom to be the most engaging of villains, so I can't really fault Chuck Austen for looking to lose interest in this story when the climax rolled around. Still I do hope that Chuck Auten has some stronger finishes lined up for his future encounters, as I'd hate to think that both X-Men titles were in the hands of writers who feel the journey itself is more important than the final destination. Still this issue does have itself an interesting subplot involving Alex Summers, who is better known to X-fans as Havok, and since it does look like this plot is going to have Alex working his way back into a regular spot on the X-Men I'm rather excited with these pages. I'm also curious to see what Chuck Austen has planned for the Juggernaut, but I'm not sure I care for his new, decidedly weaker status. Read Full Review
