out of 10

 

Placed after AvX #3 and running somewhat parallel to Wolverine and the X-Men #10, this issue introduces the Jean Grey School faculty to the brawl of the year. While a couple of staff members are allowed to get more directly involved in the matter, Rogue and the rest of her team continue being relegated to mere secondary roles in the overall battle. No wonder the Avengers have stolen the show so far; with the most tenured X-Men being used as background characters, it is an unbalanced fight.

The opening sequence in this book was great, however; the dramatic flashback scenes serve as a reminder of Rogue's dark past and how powerful she truly is. Cargill gets the spotlight too, and her taunting behavior was written in a manner that did not make her look like the instigator or the bully in the confrontation. While this was indeed an issue about X-Men fighting Avengers, it felt completely distant from the event, and more like a consolation prize for the characters left behind.
