    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    The X-Men are used to being feared. When FEAR ITSELF finally reaches the west coast, they're going to become well acquainted with the emotion first hand. The unstoppable power of an old foe renewed is heading their way, and they have all the time in the world to realize how little they can do to stop him.

    Needs More Juggernaut, Less Magik 0

    Juggernaut makes his way to San Francisco for some convoluted reasons that don't really make much sense... The Good I'm usually a fan of Land's covers, this one is a very nice take on Juggs.

There was some interesting dialog during Cy...

That's why I was pleasantly surprised to see how much I enjoyed this issue.  The Juggernaut threat bookends Kieron Gillen's meat an...
