The Rundown: Charles Xavier and his team attempt a desperate mission to stop a terrible future.

In their hidden base outside of time and space, Xavier and his small band of X-Men work on a plan to get information from the human Moira before her powers manifest. Unfortunately, Xavier has another motive for the mission as Enigma watches what he can and begins a new plan.

As Xavier and his team prepare, Enigma launches an attack on their base. In the wake of almost losing Rasputin IV, the team barely escape and Enigma decides to reach out to someone who might get it closer to its ultimate goal.

The Story: Gillen continues to craft a beautifully intricate and emotionally engaging story in this issue. The story takes some great twists and turns throughout and the Enigma character delivers a great level of villainy that kept me intrigued throughout the story. I like seeing Charles become harder as the story progresses and I look forward to seeing what happens next.

The Art: Silva’s art is sublimely beautiful and filled with amazing detail. Curiel’s colors are vibrant and enhance every visual moment.
