The GoodOkay, so I wasn't exactly the biggest fan of AvX (or really a fan at all) but I'm all for diving into the after-effects of what should a planet changing event. It feels far too frequent where these allegedly big changes come and go with little impact. Seeing the bad guy shuffled away by authorities is good fun and all, but there's so much more to focus on. Thankfully, that's exactly what happens here as we get to see what most of the key players are up to after the whole Phoenix incident.
Writer Kieron Gillen does a solid job juggling the focus on more than a handful of characters. We see first-hand how severe the impact was on Wakanda and, despite Wolverine's desire to help the nation, they make their feelings more than transparent. The real treat here is the focus on Cyclops. Gone is the ruby room and he's now being held in a privately owned facility. There's a lot of potential here, especially with a slew of new mutants entering the fray.
I also loved Wolverine's annoyance with the entire scenario. Artist Tom Raney often put a fitting look of anger meshed with frustration on Logan's face. The impressive attention to detail both times Logan releases his claws made the moment feel authentic as well.
I love Stark's remark about his AvX VS encounter with Magneto. Too many people seem to treat the "winners" of the VS title as Marvel's way of saying that's the superior character and the same would happen again. These encounters were situational and Tony's remark "I beat Magneto once. That doesn't mean you beat him every time," was a nice way to point that out. I appreciate that since I have an unhealthy obsession with these battles.
