Good issue, if a bit too rushed.

I forgot to pick this up. Great to see one of my favorite telepaths back in action. I expected it to be rushed, though.

You just can't keep a good astral demon down. ;)

Yeah. Speaking of which, they never explained how the Shadow King overcame The Panther God devouring him. Continuity issues.

@Edamame:  Well, the Shadow King has stated that, even if he is "killed," he can reincarnate so long as there are dark thoughts and emotions. I agree, though. They really should have addressed this.

Indeed. This is true, but from what I read in X-Men: Worlds Apart, it seemed that The Panther God absorbed the Shadow King.  I thought that would be a new type of "kill" for the Shadow King.
