X-Men: Legacy #268
On the other hand, this is billed as an Avengers vs. X-Men tie in, with the Phoenix Five prominently displayed on the cover. Only Cyclops appears, and that is darn brief. I guess the P5 are running around taking over the world, or stopping violence or something? I really have no idea what’s happening, I don’t think we’ve seen this global initiative in the core AvX title.
So that’s a bit of a problem. We’ve got a strong character piece in a global situation that sure seems like we should already know about it.
David Baldeon impresses me this month. I’m not usually a fan of his cartoonish style, but man, he’s got Frenzy down. She doesn’t walk anywhere. She either stops, storms, or crashes through every panel in this comic. She doesn’t walk around trees or rocks, she blasts through them. If Frenzy is like this, she may quickly become one of my favorite X-Men!
