That is how you do it! With all the mini-series in Age of X-Man coming to an end, we finally have one that gives us a great payoff while also leading into the last issue of the event: Age of X-Man Omega.

This issue we see the riot continue, as Bishop and his crew work to find Legion and put an end to everything. I was so excited to see how this all would go down. Prisoner X was one of the 'middle of the road' books of the event. It had a great start, somewhat of an alright to pretty good middle and finished with a  great close.

I think the biggest thing that I enjoyed with this issue was not only getting to see everyone use their powers finally, but also in unique and different ways. Polaris especially shined in this issue and it was a lot of fun to see her just go crazy like the one woman army she can be. Gabby as usual was so much fun and I enjoyed her little quips.

It was also great to see the book actually have a lead in to Omega then just finish as is or revert back to where it began in the event. Bishop's crew is going to bring the pain and I am so ready for it now. My once drained enthusiasm for this event is slowly coming back because of this issue.

Overall Prisoner X packs a knock out punch that we so needed. It's a great action packed issue and gets us ready and excited for Age of X-Man Omega. This is a must read for sure.
