Another fantastic thriller. Once again, this series demonstrates that it is quite simply head and shoulders above anything else Marvel was producing at the time.

Cover: fantastic!

Page one: very exciting intro, as the X-Men in their plane arrive to rescue their friends.

Pages 2 and 3 show a fighting unit at its best. Cyclops is dynamic, in charge, barking orders and sending his fellow X-Men into battle.

The next few pages are the... (continued)

  My goodness, how creepy is Proteus! this issue was awesome. Cyclops has to be the leader of the year. But im still confused what was the point for the Multiple Man? He was pretty useless. At least it was great to see the X-Men reunited. I love it how this series seems to keep getting better and better!

  -I love this issue. Proteus is a villain worthy of the X-Men, but I think Moira would call him by his name, not "Mutant X."

  Stupid. Have powerless Banshee man the phones, and Multiple Man explore the island.

  This just keeps getting better and better. Great character development, writing, and action. Interesting to see another mentalist messing with Jean's mind. The groups personalities are really coming through.
I wish I knew what Jamie's limitations were. Have they ever been clearly stated. What happens when one of his clones dies? Why did one of his clones look like a woman?

  So it's been months since Banshee was injured. At least he's there to man the phones... that's a tough job, boyo. Mutant X is friggin wicked!

  Mastermind's illusion for Jean is so creepy! Hunting a man dressed as a stag!? Yikes!
