Somehow I enjoyed the 0 issue, but not this one. All of the story elements were rather contrived and the art wasn't enough to save it. Nice covers at least.

I'm not impressed by this whole series I must say. Maybe it just feels underwhelming because of the action packed Avengers No Surrender event running at the same time, or maybe the hype around it all was blown out of proportions by Marvel to cash in on an idea that was probably not worth as much in real that in the room when the first pitched the idea. I don't know. But ultimately, the 5 issues co more

started good, then jarring artist change like 5 pages in, and weak shoe-horned ending. How did she defeat the phoenix? She talked it down saying she needs to be given the chance to live, blablabla.
I mean it was still an OK issue, just such a weak resolution. The interaction between Logan and Jean was A+ though.

Funny how they tease Zodiac as maybe the focus of this arc, and then bang crash he's done. lol. I think Dan Slott was kinda paying service to the fans who most all said no one gives a shit about Zodiac. haha I mean I found the original arc entertaining, but certainly didn't need a second arc in as many years.
