    But as mentioned, the area where this issue stumbles a bit is the pacing. Pak doesn't transition between scenes terribly well. Characters will vanish and battles will end without much warning.

It's also disappointing to note that Dazzler's team doesn't take on a new recruit to replace Emmeline Frost.
