This issue was actually a bit underwhelming compared to the previous ones. After everything that happened last issue, it seemed as if Powerlord Kruun was going to pose as a serious challenge to the X-men. All that we got, however, is a fight with Wolverine that ends too quickly. Then, the X-men reservoir unit arrives and the fight is over before it starts. 

This issue somewhat requires having read Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-men run or otherwise parts of it won’t any sense. But, there is one thing that does settle by the end of the issue. Other than that, the art is great and Gillen’s gets the X-men’s dialogue well, maybe you can guess who speaks the title of this review?

Left wondering about what gets settled in this issue? 
 


 P.S. Is Magneto still locked in the closet?

Yes that's what I think happened. But it makes it funny that he wasn't even cameo-ed in any of the panels that might lead the readers to think that he got out somehow. I'm not sure if this was an accident or deliberate attempt.

    I don't know how much time has passed in Marvel - probably a year or so, but in the real world, Kitty has been intangible since 2004.  Will she finally be cured?  This issue gives the answer as well as, hopefully, solving the Breakworld issue once and for all.  Of course, since Astonishing is a bit behind the other X-books, Kitty will be intangible there no matter what happens in this issue.  Since this issue is the final battle and resolution, there isn't a way to mention too much without it be...
