Kieron Gillen presents the last amiable encounter between the X-Men and the Avengers before the big storm. Sequences like the catch-me-up on Magik and the chat between Frost and Namor were nice as they helped anchor the story, bring readers up to date, and provide characterization. A small cameo by "Secret Invasion's" breakout star Abigail Brand, was also a refreshing touch.

The choice of villain for this adventure was poor, though. A remnant from 2010's "S.W.O.R.D.," Unit is one of those generic characters one would be complimenting by calling it "blah." It was great to see Carlos Pacheco drawing the X-Men again; he is still a great artist, but no comparison to his first stint in adjectiveless way back when. Told from peculiar points of view, this is a short and sweet two-parter that will go into history as the final team-up between A and X before "vs." gets in between.
