Unlike most of the other AvX tie-ins that I’ve read so far, this issue was really just an expansion of what we’ve seen in the main title. So we see the events and fights that we’ve already seen, but now Kieron Gillen goes inside the character’s heads and we see what’s motivating them as they punch the shit out of each other. My favourite scenes in this issue were the ones narrated by Namor, because not only was it good to get an explanation as to why a former Avenger and one of Captain America’s closest allies is siding with the X-Men, but also because Kieron Gillen’s Namor is just so damn awesome. I also really liked that we got an insight into what Colossus is going through as the Juggernaut, and that we got a reason for Rulk to win that one. The scenes with Hope were also interesting, I wonder what her plan is? In AvX #2 it seemed like she was just running away scared, but obviously not. I’m also glad that Gillen has kept going some of his subplots, especially UNIT. Greg Land was Greg Land, but I did like his full Cytorrakked-out Colossus.

I really dug this ish for all the reasons you stated. I especially liked Cykes letter.

Greg Land was great and I'm really liking GiIllen's X-Men too. Glad I started reading The X-men again.

Scott's letter was a nice touch.

Namor's insight is why he's always been my favorite anti-hero, everytime I read that bit I get chills. Def my favorite moment of the week. :D
