Book Summary: In the aftermath of a showdown between Jean Grey and Cassandra Nova, the rules have changed — and the battle is nowhere near over! It’s all hands on deck as the building wave of hatred against mutants crashes down on the X-Men!
Book Review: Jean has a message for the world and in her message, there seems to be an echo of the sentiments once belonging to that of Magneto.

Yet the image doesn't really belong to that of Jean Grey. In fact, the message is meant to shatter the innocent image of Jean Grey and prove that she is just like the mutant Magneto sharing the same sentiments of mutants having the superior beings.

Unfortunately the real Jean Grey and her ragtag group of X-Men are sequestered below in Atlantis. For a moment there, Jean seems to be willing to take the bait but it is one of her X-Men, Honey Badger, that actually halts her from doing so and the group plans a strategy that will finally bring an end to Cassandra's reign of terror.

With the help Namor and Tony Stark with the Avengers, the group sets their feet upon the shores of Genosha ready to confront Cassandra.

The cameras are rolling and the world is watching and Jean Grey is set to end Cassandra's reign forever.

Although this portion of the series is meant to be a build-up for the climatic end and hopefully future filled with new villains and different direction of storyline. Don't get me wrong it was great seeing Cassandra Nova. It has been quite a long time since I had been in the X-Universe that I had not realized that Professor Xavier had a twin sister. I don't ever remember ever hearing him mention of her but then again I kinda left the X-Universe during the time of the Onslaught storyline so she might have been mentioned or appeared afterward.

I am really hoping that if this is to be the end of this series that the next issue doesn't disappoint.
