Book Summary: Following the shocking events of X-MEN RED #8, it’s time for Jean to finally confront her demon head-on. Jean Grey and Cassandra Nova... The showdown begins here!
Book Review: Why does this issue feel like it is the last issue for X-Men Red?
In this issue, Rachel Grey, Jean's daughter from a possible not-so-near future, has been taken control of by Cassandra Nova. Jean has decided that it is time to not only face Cassandra Nova on her own but also Rachel. She believes that it best that she do this on her own but her friends are not about to allow her to do this on her own.
This issue was great. I must admit it was wonderful to see the ending conflict between Jean and Cassandra. I am quite sure that this is not the end between them and I am sure we are bound to see Cassandra pop up later in something else.
The reason I point out 'something else' because this issue felt not only rushed to finish up this storyline but it also felt as if this may be the last issue. Is it? I haven't seen anything about it being the last issue but this ending made it feel in such a way.
I really hope I am wrong on this because I would love to see Jean and her team do more and see yet another interesting villain pop up to throw another wrench in their plans to unite both mutants and non-mutants together.
But I guess we will have to see.
