What you need to know:

Last issue we saw Ahab and his hounds attack Cyclops and Bloodstorm leaving her dead, Iceman was being hunted, Cable saved him at the cost of his live.

Iceman was captured and the killer revealed himself to be a young Cable

What just happened?
We find the X-men in mourning after two of their own have been taken, Kitty gathers them to map out the next possible move as they try to piece the puzzle together.

Rachel Grey has moment where she realises she failed by not realising her hound marks returning that she may have been able to detect Ahab return. But with Ahab being able to time travel and without Cable they stuck to goon the offensive, so the four remaining X-men must be kept safe amongst the X-teams.

Scott runs out and he argues with Angel in the courtyard of the mansion as the rain falls, Angel and Beast are quickly dispatched, Jean locates the assailant and Cyclops goes on the offensive but who does he find?

Final Thoughts
A fast paced issue which keeps you guessing and wanted more with it’s continued shocks trying to figure out everyone’s hidden agenda, lots of character focused moments.

I have been into comics since the early 90's and my main passion has been X-men I collect books, figures and any collectiables I can get my hands on. For shoot the breeze I have the pleasure opening my eyes to new worlds and adventures. I also do the Across the Pond Trades where I get an opportunity to look at trade paperbacks and review them via our YouTube channel. I also have my own Facebook page and Youtube called Smerdp which is full of plastic goodness. Many Thanks Paul
