Another of Duggans forgettable stories in this week's X-MEN! The running plotline with Talon (old Laura from inaude the Vault) and Synch is a terrible story for Laura Kinney, and writing-wise, it plays out like the worst of the worst soap opera plots!

So, I finished this, the final Chapter of "The Redroot Saga", and it was good! Much of this, and the prior Chapters, really help to give us a deeper understanding of Sunfire's character! Maybe I am wrong, I don't recall him ever being so transparent before, allow his emotions to show! I really dug that about this story arc.

Not sure why (maybe no one is reading them, or no one feels like reviewing them for others?), but there are zero reviews for the X-MEN UNLTD COMICS on Marvel Unlimited. I've been dipping into them and some of them are pretty good, actually, like this one.

Let me start this by saying I had no intentions of reading this issue, as 1) the series had tanked after the big reveal of where Peter had been in those missing years, etc., and 2) it seemed like another needless death for publicity's sake!
