Title: X-Men Red (2018-) #7
Author: Tom Taylor, Carmen Carnero (Illustrator), Jenny Frison (Illustrator)

Book Summary: Attack on Atlantis! One of the X-Men’s greatest foes comes calling on the undersea kingdom, determined to bring about their end!
Book Review: This comic book pretty much picks up where the last issue has left off.
In our last issue, Cassandra Nova finally made her appearance known to Jean Grey via the new version of Cerebro. Right after that, she sent out a gift that would destroy Namor's Atlantis. Fortunately for the occupants of the underwater city, Gentle's now released mutant powers were able to keep the damage to a minimum.
With Atlantis under control, the other half of Jean's team have set out to retrieve the cell phone of the UN Ambassador that Cassandra Nova has killed. They know that the contents within this phone could be the kwy in proving Jean's innocence. They manage to infiltrate the plane that is carrying the late ambassador's belongings. Unfortunately the group is attacked by a passenger causing Trinary to be hurt in the process. As the team scrambles to save lives, Trinary manages to control the Sentinel and plane and land both of them safely.
The issue ends with Trinary broadcasting the cell phone message across the world.
So what does this mean? I am sure that Cassandra Nova will not be at all pleased of being uncovered by Jean's team and I am quite sure she will be gunning for them for revenge. The thing is I am surprised she didn't show up in this issue. I would have thought we would have seen some part of her appear but alas that was not to come. I suppose we may see her next issue.
There is a moral to this series: regardless of the hatred in the world, do not add to it with becoming part of that hatred. Align yourself with positiveness.
For me, I liked the issue but there was some parts of the art that irked me a bit. Faces of characters in boxes that really didn't have a role at the moment seemed to look rather weird to me. Otherwise it was a nice issue.
I will admit I am looking forward to seeing what Cassandra Nova has up her sleeve next!
