Yet again, W&XM kicks a whole lot of ass, this book is just brilliant, perhaps my favourite X-book ever. This issue is of course an AvX tie-in, but there’s a lot more to it than that, as Aaron continues to develop his running subplots, in particular Angel and Genesis and their budding friendship, which is worrying, but also quite sweet. But the real meat here was Avengers Vs X-Men, and who’s side Wolverine is on. Cyclops comes to the school to try and fix things between him and Logan, or at least get them on the same side. It’s a fascinating conversation between the two, and although it fails, it sets up a great character conflict for Wolverine, and given what happened in AvX #3 when Captain America kicked him out of a plane, I reckon Wolverine might be reconsidering Cyclops’ offer. It was also cool that a couple of the X-Men who sided with Wolverine in the Schism chose to go and fight alongside Scott, just because they may disagree on one issue doesn’t mean they can’t agree on another, and it’s cool that Aaron has managed to resist over-simplifying the split and it’s not just pure hate. Or at least it’s only pure hate from Wolverine. Bachalo’s art was as idiosyncratically excellent as usual, but did have trouble following that double-page spread where Wolverine and Cyclops walked through the school, it kind of snaked it’s way round, but I initially read it wrong.
