    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Dec 10, 2014

    This story arc managed to pull back into what the strength is for the series in this last issue before starting something new. So far the story arc has been far more concept driven, with the hybrid aliens, the return of Madeline Pryor, the betrayal of S.W.O.R.D. from within, but by mixing the focus on characters back into the mix it redeems what has been a fun but lackluster story arc so far. The moments with Rachel are not dominant here, but they are touching enough to make up for their brevity. While this has never been a weak series, it did stumble a little bit with this story arc, but by the end finds itself back on the same solid ground where it has mostly been throughout.

    Geeked Out Nation - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Dec 11, 2014

    This issue concludes an arc that was not as compelling or gripping as earlier arcs where Jubilee and Shogo held the focus. The panel time on Manifold Tyger was a little bit too much, and the time on Sharada Darthri was not enough. We learned very little of this member of the Providian Order. With Guggenheim's departure, who knows if the Providian Order will return in X-Men titles. I like the sci-fi but all-too-real premise of this Order's genetic experimentation. Since the X-Men's teammate relationships went so underdeveloped in this arc, I look forward to next issue and G. Willow Wilson's debut. Read Full Review
