·         Cable is back and no Techno Organic virus in his system thanks to Hope.
 
The Bad:
·         There are no polar Bears in Antarctica as seen in issue 4, they live in the North Pole.
·         Thing defeats Namor under water in his element imposible.
·         AVSX Consequences is a waste of paper it could have been done in 2 issues instead of 5.
The Good:
·         It’s cool to see the relationship between the Phoenix force and Ironfist.
·         Namor Destroys Wakanda.
·         We discover the Magik could have removed the Juggernaut curse on Colossus anytime but she wanted Colossus to suffer like her.
·         It’s a punch fest and a fun read.
