What starts as a
misunderstanding, quickly turns into an all-out battle when the Jean
Grey School staff leaves neutrality behind, and Rogue goes rogue
against the Avengers. The point this tie-in strongly drives is that
the southern belle has taken Earth's Mightiest down before, and she
can do it again now that her buttons have been pushed. It is great
to finally see that the big guns are starting to come out on the
X-Men side of the house to join the fight.
After all she has
been through, seeing Rogue in control of her abilities, even in
tough situations is refreshing; while Gambit and Kitty Pryde also
show some great display of power themselves. Rafa Sandoval's pencils
are quickly adapting to the characters, their surroundings, and
situations, and are engaging and fun; now, if only he stopped
drawing the giant belt pouches and elephantine boots, everything
would be great.
