The social event of the year is finally here courtesy of writer Marjorie Liu. Even though the resolution to last month's intense cliffhanger takes place as a flashback, it was compelling enough to make the read engaging. Northstar and Kyle's wedding was very reminiscent of Cyclops and Jean Grey's ceremony way back when, with a lot of personal moments between unusual players, and light situations like Sasquatch's easy fix to the AvX conundrum.

There is no doubt that this forward-looking move by Marvel is commendable, and Liu's writing in the issue caters to every taste; however, for a book that has been talked about not only on the internet, but also on newspapers, TV, and mass media in general, it probably deserved a high profile artist; nothing against penciller Mike Perkins, but his work was not necessarily the best fit. With the soiree over, the story quickly picks up the pace and closes on a suspenseful note.
