    Overview   This issue I liked a lot. Basically it guest stars Namor, and there is a race between X-Men and Brotherhood to see who can nab the fish man for their respective teams.

I mean, Yes I know I am reading really ...

Jean Grey is in the kitchen, where most internet men agree she should be, Cyclops is being a dick zapping Beast's hand at the dinner table, and Iceman is making ice cream to go on his pie. Just some rhetorical quest...
