The moment we have all been waiting for has arrived. We finally get to see the original X-Men interact with Scott Summers and his team. He is referred to as the "evil" Scott throughout the battle and it is definitely fun to see. I am loving the way they are dealing with Scott losing control over his powers and Jean trying to learn how to deal with her telepathy. Bendis is doing an incredible job showing these two suffer with this, especially Jean. She definitely did not do well learning of Xavier's death by reading Scott's mind.
I think that Angel is doing a great job of being the voice of "We shouldn't be here" throughout this issue. He seems to be struggling the most with their displacement. As for the others...well I think it is wild that Hank is trying to cure himself and that Bobby is having slight issues dealing with seeing himself.
Regardless, if you are an X-Men fan this book is beyond worth it. We are now four issues in and I can tell you that I am hooked. There is a lot going on here and it is hard to discuss it while still trying to stay relatively vague. I just have to reiterate that this is a must read for mutant lovers because it is going to massively influence all of the other X books.
