With the whole Marvel Universe currently in a Phoenix Frenzy (or should that be Phrenzy?) it’s interesting that the only comic to feature Jean Grey has her completely depowered. It’s good to have an issue focus on Jean, she’s one of the few characters in this book we know, and an exploration of what it’s like for her to lose her telepathy is very interesting. It was great how this issue brought in lots of powerful and interesting telepaths to compare and contrast with Jean, so we got Mesmero and Shadow King and also, best of all, Quentin Quire, who while not as fun as the regular version, was suitably crazy. I’m actually kind of sad that he died, but it did allow for more ambiguity about Prophet, that guy is a great protagonist. Also very cool in this issue is that we saw the event that turned AoA Wolverine into the evil Overlord, which was him killing Kid Apocalypse. I wonder if he will suffer the same fate as the Marvel Universe’s replacement and be completely wiped? Davide Gianfelice’s art was a good fill-in, I really like his work, whether it’s in the ancient past in Northlanders, or in futuristic dystopias, he delivers. So yeah, apart from a few infuriating typos, this was another excellent issue.

Just finished the issue. Pretty good. As much as I like the regular art on this, I think it could benefit from a less gritty artist at times. It's amazing how much better the characters all came off when you could tell who's who.

Still one of the best Marvel books, though.

What, is it too much to make that leap from a piece of promotional art? It is? Ah, I see...well then, carry on...nothing to see here. :-D
