The Rundown: Wanda’s resurrection isn’t the end of the mystery, but the beginning of an even bigger one.
Wanda has returned, but something isn’t right. Unfortunately, no one can get to the answer because Northstar takes the opportunity to attack Magneto for threatening his husband. The heroes discover that this version of Wanda has memories from the past and doesn’t remember anything that happened, including her children. Rachel and Jean decide to fill in the gaps of her memory, but worry what that might do to her.
As they give her her memories back, something emerges in the waters off the coast of Krakoa. Giant creatures attack the island and the heroes go on the offensive leaving Wanda with her sons. While the Avengers and mutants fight the creatures, Wanda finds herself in a battle of her own. A battle that will reveal a truth she has long denied.
The Story: Williams brings this story to some interesting and unexpected places and every moment is entertaining. The plotting is done well and the story moves with great energy and tension. While the action is brilliant, the fight within Wanda is the focus and that is done with great style and a cliffhanger that makes me excited for what comes next.
The Art: Werneck and Messina deliver some great art throughout the issue. The characters look great, the emotions on their faces are well done and the action is visually thrilling.
