After a few issues flitting in and around the edges of the main AvX storyline, Kieron Gillen shifts over and returns to one of his runners, Mister Sinister. This was a strange, but very well-done issue, with absolutely fantastic artwork from Dustin Weaver. If he’s got time to deliver brilliant art like this, it makes me wonder what’s up with SHIELD, has Hickman hit a block in the writing? The story here was basically a demonstration of what Sinister has been up to, building his own bizarre London deep beneath the Earth’s crust, where everyone looks like him. We follow a Journalist Sinister who is secretly plotting to kill the real Sinister. This functions as a tour of this weird society, but really, it shows the lengths Sinister has gone to in order to make his own species, it’s all part of a system, even dissidents. But this wasn’t just a villain spotlight issue, it was also set-up for a bigger story, because Sinister knows that Cyclops and the rest of the ‘Phoenix Five’ (Who would win a fight between them and the Greendale Seven?) will be coming from him. To combat this he has a bunch of weird clones of X-Men, like the group of hilarious Gambits who can only say ‘Ma Chere’, or most importantly, a whole lot of Madelyne Pryors. Clones of Jean Grey? In a Phoenix story? Holy crap!
