I think the writers are doing well in coming up with twists and turns in this story arc. The teasers were so good that no one guessed right what was really happening with the jean-dark phoenix scene. Kudos to Bendis! I'm starting to really like his writing.
Iceman is such a comic relief. I love his scene with thor.
Jean-showed her raw but out of control strength in this issue
Cyclops- really good rapport with his team especially with jean. He showed how good of a leader he is.
The only thing i didnt like in this issue is the avengers.
