The Rundown: Forge enters the Vault to rescue a missing mutant and the Summers brothers deal with their rocky relationship.

After securing the help of a member of the Quiet Council, Forge begins his plans for the Children of the Vault. With those plans in place, he and the rest of the X-Men begin their mission to rescue Darwin. Unfortunately, not only is one of the Children still free, but a family spat between Scott and Alex threatens to end their plan prematurely. 

With Perro free from the simulation and wreaking havoc, the team must find a way to quickly contain him. At the same time, Forge enters the Vault and discovers that the mutant he’s tracking will cause some bigger problems if they escape. 

The Story: A tense, intense and entertaining story that adds some interesting drama to the arc and the characters. The tension between Scott and Alex is interesting to explore in the story and the aftermath of it teases bigger issues to come. The tension of Forge’s mission is great and I love the twist at the end of the issue and what it could mean. 

The Art: Cassara delivers some thrilling art throughout the issue. The visuals are fun, beautifully detailed and highlight the tension of the story.
