The Phoenix Five take the fight to Mister Sinister, and in a real surprise, they get their butts whooped. It was a lot of fun seeing what kinds of warped versions of various X-Men and X-Related characters he could throw at Cyclops and the gang. I particularly liked the Kamikaze Gambits and the Krakoa Castle. There’s even explosive cows! And then there’s Madelyne Pryor. I will say that I was a bit annoyed that we didn’t get more of an emotional reaction from Cyclops to seeing a bunch of clones of his ex-wife, all he did was blast them to hell, but that may have been the Phoenix being in control and not caring. I wonder how many readers thought this issue was good, or how many were annoyed at the Phoenix Five being defeated so easily? In AvX they’ve been built up to be relatively unstoppable, but it wasn’t so here. Hmmmm. One thing I love is that at the end, the non-Phoenixed X-Men show up to save the day. Magneto and Storm have been the secret stars and surprisingly (in Magneto’s case at least) the secret consciences of this book, and I’m very excited to see them achieve what their cosmic teammates couldn’t. Daniel Acuna’s art was a love it or hate it as usual, I like it, but I beyond trying to turn around the haters, it just seems like one of those things.

I found this issue really enjoyable. I have loced Sinister in these last few story arcs and this one definitely did not disappoint. I did however find it a little off at how easily Sinister was beating the Phoenix Five. I really didn't see anything that Sinister threw at them that they should not have been able to handle with a proverbial wave of their hand.
