One - Nawfalq
This was a good issue - probably because it was unexpected. After the usual bellyaching by Mutants/X-Men about everything, and all their drama, I was pleased to read an issue narrated by a different character. The "villain" in this story is Phalanx... who details how he came to be on earth and his very long-time struggle to reunite with his hive. The writer really put some insight into hive-mind psychology and the artist drew us a good version of phalanx. The X-Men defeat the alien, but as Storm points out, maybe they defeated a bit of themselves, too. The story was interesting and the artwork matched. Solid issue worth cover price, but maybe not one that will be forever remembered as integral, classic X-Men.
