This was probably the best issue of the relaunched Uncanny so far, and it did a fantastic job of picking up on what’s been going on in X-Force. Whilst Wolverine & The X-Men is carrying on the stories of Angel and Apocalypse, over in Uncanny we see what’s going on with Tabula Rasa, the new evolutionary chain created by Archangel. Psylocke brings the event to the attention of the X-Men but doesn’t tell them the whole truth, and this tension is over the whole issue, especially when Magneto confronts her. I guess that issue of X-Force with Magneto wasn’t useless after all! I really liked seeing the events of the ‘Dark Angel Saga’ depicted in hieroglyphic form, but who was that who showed up at the end? Was it Genocide? Gillen also splits up the team for some cool character moments, the scene between Cyclops and Storm was really great writing, and Hope’s flirting with Namor was very funny. But doesn’t she know he only likes blondes?
