    Koblish and Decastro do a non-shabby Byrne/Austin impression, all clean lines and expressive shadows, but with enough style of their own to keep the visuals fresh and to make those dayglo costumes pop. The Hykonians, by the way, take on Nick Fury and his Heli-Carrier just for an added thrill. They're way too powerful to persist in this way, and I'm sure next issue Lilandra will just happen to know their one weakness, but the old formulas are sometimes the best, and this series of new adventures from the old bi-monthly era is having a lot of fun with beloved memories what once made the X-Men matter.
