Excellent. Beast takes centre-stage in compelling mystery. It's a blast seeing the X-Men in their new guises. Aside from Beast, it is Wolverine and Jean Grey that come off best here. Heroic. Fierce. Top-notch cliffhanger, too. 10/10

  -Where'd those unies come from all of a sudden?

  WOW! A very mind-blowing issue! Mesmero has never been this sinister before! I love the Beast's appearance here, he really came through! Jean or Ms. Destiny was just freaky and awesome along with "Slim" Summers! And again the ending scene is jaw-dropping! Just like any Magneto-in-the-end-of-the-issue-cameo-thing!

  This is great stuff right here. The reader is treated as intelligent enough to figure out how things got to this point, and the circus/carnival stuff is actually good without the Circus of Crime.

  A great story leading up to an awesome cliffhanger. One of my favorite single issues from this period.

  I loved the gimmick, but I wish they had come up with a more creative reason as to why the X-Men were in the circus. Great final panel.

  1. Great art here.
2. Wolverine is awesome in this.
3. Finally Nightcrawler is BAMF'ing everywhere during a fight.

  Well that issue happened. Wolverine's logic in waking Jean was amusing and it was good seeing Beast again, but that's about it. Nice reveal at the end though.

  While I did enjoy this issue, I think it's only because of the solid art and writing. I really hate the whole circus act gimmick. Great ending, can't wait to see what the next issue has in store.

  This was really well written. I gave it the 5th star because of the cliff hanging ending. This has to be the best run of the order yet... Finishing up the Korvac saga and jumping into the X-Men.

  This was great, and I've been looking forward to this X-men run for a while. Wolverine was badass, and Magneto looked sufficiently evil at the end.

  I guess mind control is ok when it is actually someone's power and not some giant machine.

  Wow, I wonder how "dates with the boss" Jean has already had, and those are pretty dark implications of what that entails...

  I remember thinking the same thing when I originally read this issue back in the day.

  The cover of this book is one of my all time favorite covers I've seen so far in the order. Also I still love that hey rube is the carnie summoning call.

  I got all excited thinking it was Arcade on the cover but I guess it's way too early for him yet. Also, was not expecting that ending. So good. Great surprises since they hid the villian from the cover.

  It's been a long time since anyone called Scott "Slim", that's a blast from the past.

Having cut my X-Men teeth on the 90's cartoon series, it's easy to forget there was a time that Hank and the new team didn't know each other. I enjoyed that aspect of this issue.

Looking forward to an epic battle with Magneto in the next one.
