As Xavier begins to wake up from his neural adventure through time, tension is at a high among the group. The presence of Magneto has done nothing to calm the situation. A single spark then ignites a furious battle between Frenzy and Karima!

    Only two issues in and we are starting to get a humpty dumpty of a tale. Be careful, Carey and company, you may not be able to put this one back together again. Read Full Review
