MESSIAH COMPLEX Part 6 Battered by Sinister, the X-Men retreat to the mansion to lick their wounds. But in the war for the future of mutantkind, the battle never ends. The school is overrun by a mysterious new player who enlists one of the X-Men�s oldest foes. And when Cyclops learns who has the baby, he�s forced to make a tough decision.

"Okay, good use of a variety of characters, good follow-up to last issue, mediocre art, blah blah blah, whatever. Here�s the only thing worth talking about from this issue: Cable, running through the forest, with a baby strapped to his chest. In a little baby carrier. WITH A BIG RED �X� ON IT. I mean, where in the Marvel Universe would one get something like this? Is there a para-military mutant-from-the-future section at their local Babies �R Us? Are there a lot of working X-dads who need to be hands-free? Is Cable trying to build the X-brand or something? I hope the next six parts of this crossover answer the question conclusively, or else we all just wasted three months."

THIS BOOK GETS 7 GRAHAMS OUT OF 10
