The O5 are in the midst of Captain America's Hydra America and things are starting to get interesting. Emma Frost is back but what is her endgame?

This issue we see the 05 taken down by Havok and his team. They've been taken to New Tian and Emma Frost has plans for young Cyclops. Jean Grey managed to psychically hide herself and Jimmy. Havok seems to think that capturing the 05 will bring Magneto out from hiding, but Magneto calls upon some help from a couple other X-Men.

As Tie-ins go this is one of the better ones in recent years. The book manages to hold it's voice and doesn't really seem too affected by the major event. The reveals in this issue were so awesome and had me cheering. I am so excited for what is coming in two weeks. It's great to have Emma back and in her traditional white outfit. Not that horrendous outfit she had at then end of Inhumans vs X-Men. I guess it shows the uproar from fans after that reveal in IvX Marvel actually listened and that gives me hope that for things like this in the future.

X-Men Blue continues to be a juggernaut in the X-books line. It has consistently been outstanding in quality and one of the most fun x-books I have read in years. Even in a major event tie-in the book remains outstanding. This series is a must read by all x-fans and comic book fans in general.
