Things are getting tense between the two studios and a battle ensues. We are reaching the end of the Age of X-Man and it is being felt at all corners of this so called perfect world.

In this book there are a lot of revelations that get revealed, and yet none of them have the payoff that I think the creative team wanted. There is this moment of shock value and then I found myself thinking "well that's stupid and makes no sense." It's almost like all the things I've had issues with in the series now all of a sudden there is an answer but it just seems way too convenient. It's a race to the end of the book but again I fail to see the importance of this story in the over arcing story of Age of X-Man.

Also where have the X-Tremists been? In the major revelation you would think that the they would have a part in this story. All the other books they have shown up as the sort of police and the ones who erased peoples minds, but not in this book. This just seems really weird that there are a lot of correlations to the other stories in Age of X-Man yet a major player like the X-Tremists are no where to be found.

Overall This book is still fun and has some enjoyable moments. Nightcrawler is very playful and plays to his strengths. That being said it still does not save the book from the problems that have riddled it since the beginning.
