    I thought this was another solid issue. Prof X sporting psychic armor similar to the style when he first confronted SK on the astral plane. So Logan psychic defense against the illusions was him being focused on getting to the place his enemy resides. I'm hoping that some of the Xavier students use whatever psionic defenses Prof X taught them are shown here. The situation on the physical plane is really sticky now. Can Bishop and Angel Subdue OML before things get real messy on the ground. I like the idea of Bishop and Angel having to be Damage Control trying to keep people calm and keep Betsy free to do her thing.

    Even if he doesn't, he's still counted as a member. Golds problem is that it can't focus on anyone besides Kitty and maybe Colossus. At least he isn't lying on the floor like Stormbot or being given the TAS Jean treatment ala Rachel.

    3 teams + solo (and legacy characters) is still pretty ridiculous.

    Astonishing doesn't really count since it's a Maxi.

    Then count it as a maxi series, it's still more exposure he doesn't need.

    Not really. Compare it to Storm and Nightcrawler for example and he's easily one of the main characters there. He's the one with the best showing after Kitty.

    You;re splitting hairs. Its a book relesed every month that he is a cast member in. That was the point made

    Depends. Technically you could say Colossus appears more, but he's portrayed as an idiot with the whole romance plot gong on. And Rachel technically had some spotlight but then she keeps fainting on almost every issue. Logan has balanced screentime and is shown as capable.

    Lol, they have not utilized Logan well. I mean, he would probably take out the X-Cutioner on his own, but they just have him slice up a few demons. That was total bs to be honest. I mean, I'd rather have seem Kitty, Kurt, Colossus and Rachel take on some demons, while Logan and Storm take on X-Cutioner. It would have been way better since they were investigating him.

    They haven't but compared to everyone else, he's getting the best writing even if it's by accident. Damn, Guggenheim sucks.

    Agreed.

    In the previews it isn't listed as a Maxi. Until then I think of it as a ongoing. Soule may only be on it for 12 issues.

    It looks like there will be some level of roster change to Gold for the Negative Zone arc. Rachel, Kurt, and Kitty are missing from that cover, and seemingly Armor and Graymalkin are on there. Maybe they go have an Excalibur reunion while this team deals with the NZ creature they have in the mansion (from the Brotherhood team). then they reunite for the upcoming nuptials, where Kitty and Piotr and Rachel and Kurt tie the knot together....
