Nightcrawler continues to try to find a way to unite the mutants by looking into the three laws of Krakoa.

This was an interesting issue. It sort of has two directions now with Legion and his plans to deal with Onslaught and Nightcrawler looking into the laws and finding a way to unite the mutants. Onslaught does need to be dealt with before that could happen but he also runs into some snags with the clean slate given to former villains like Fabian Cortez. I am finding that Legions direction of the story seems to be the stronger one. I'm more intrigued with his plans and his current relationship with Xavier than Nightcrawlers plans.

I have been loving Fabian in this series though. I was sad when he was being replaced in S.W.O.R.D. but seeing him in Way of X has been hilarious. He's still trying to get away with stuff but as we see in this issue, it comes back to bite him at least a bit.

We also get a cameo from a mutant I have been hoping we would see soon. She was one of my favorites from the New X-Men Academy X books and it's great to see her here. I would love to see her be a permanent team member in one of the x-books.

Overall Way of X continues to be an interesting series. I feel Legion's story is the stronger of the two. That being said this book also continues to highlight lesser known mutants and even just for that this is one you should definitely pick up.
