    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    “NATION X” There's a rogue Predator X stalking mutants beneath New York City and it's down to Wolverine and Fantomex to hunt it down. There's an island in the San Francisco Bay that the mutants call home and it's slowly sinking -- and only King Namor can save the day. And meanwhile, in San Francisco, a supermob is making life hard in Chinatown...somebody call the X-Men! Part 6 of 8!

    Cyclops gave orders for Wolverine, Psylocke and Colossus to hit New York and track where the group of Predator X had come from (see Uncanny X-Men #517) and the source of the nanites, which held information on all of the X-Men's strength and weaknesses.

    Wolverine followed the Predator X's scent to the sewers of the city. There the X-Men discovered that Fantomex already dealt with the monster. The X-Men asked for Fantomex's help to determine where the Predators came from, but Fantomex was not willing to help them in their mission.

    Meanwhile on Utopia, Magneto explained there was a massive support pillar beneath the island that would prevent it from sinking into the ocean. Cyclops was furious at him for working behind his back and told Magneto that he wouldn't receive his trust this way. Magneto left Utopia, deciding that it was time to do some good for a change. He began to meditate on the top of a mountain alone.

    Back in New York, Wolverine, Psylocke and Colossus tracked the Predator's point of origin inside a unknown building. Inside, the super-powered beings who had forced the former Marauder Scalphunter to send out the Predator X's were expecting their arrival.

    One of my favorite issues Fraction has done 0

    For me this is probably one of the better Fraction issues, sometimes he can get the characters wrong however in the past 3 issues her has gotten them spot on.  I really liked that they didnt really feature Emma and Scott (as a couple) in this issue, instead we see what magneto has been up to along with some other x-characters like psylocke collosus and wolverine who meet one of the lesser known x-characters, Fantomex.    however there are some down sides to this issue namely the art Land shoudnt...

    After the void is trapped in Scott Summers head, our heroes can now concentrate on the main threat -- Utopia is sinking. Magneto goes behind Scott's back and asks Namor to build a giant pilar that will keep Utopia above the water, but Scotty boy doesn't seem to approve. A deceived Magneto goes on a mountain to meditate... and do something good.   SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content. Wait. Whazzat? Master of Magnetism? Do Something Good?

    Whoa... I've never been a huge Fraction's Uncanny X-Men fan. Thou, there were some horrible issues. But this... This turned my comic world upside down.   I am fully convinced that Terry Dodson's artwork is more suitable for Matt's storytelling. Just look at the cover. But, surprisely, this month Land jumped over his head (obviously affected a break in two issues). Sharp, thin lines, expressive faces (although, I'm not a fan of his "photographic" style) - all of it makes an unique charm, floaty a...
