Solicit Synopsis

“FIVE MILES SOUTH OF THE UNIVERSE” When Rogue, Magneto and Gambit jumped into space on an intergalactic search and rescue mission, they had no idea that it would land them in the middle of an extraterrestrial war! And to make matters worse, the space station that serves as the battlefield for the conflict is slowly falling into a collapsing star. With time running out and the lives of Havok, Polaris and Marvel Girl on the line, these X-Men are in for a bumpy ride...

This issue was better than the last. Marvel Girl finally wakes up, and we actually see Polaris and Havok (yeah, I'm still not too big a fan of Korvus).

X-Men Legacy Vol 1 255

So not too much was seen with interactions between Rogue and Rachel. She just sort of woke up (ho-hum) like nothing had changed. Havok and Polaris at least were surprised to see Gambit and Magneto, though neither even tried to acknowledge Frenzy.

Polaris even said to Magneto something along the lines of "so you teamed up with the X-Men to save us?" This confused me. Did she really think Frenzy was a member of the X-Men? And why should either think Gambit was? When either Havok or Polaris last saw Gambit, he was still Death. In fact, Polaris was Pestilence-no mention of that either. So they should not only have no idea that Gambit is and X-Man, but also be shocked as to how he has switched back to his normal form. Still, it's been a while. Maybe they forgot, or they just don't care. Whatever..

Once again, I did not follow the past 10(?) issues Havok and Polaris were even in. I am still clueless as to the whereabouts of Ch'od or Raza. I am still clueless as to why they are doing what they are in this issue. Korvus just straight up kills a bunch of Sh'iar (ho-hum), and they don't care. I guess being out in space has changed them, especially after they have fought a 'war' out there.

Meanwhile, the place where they are all on is floating into its nearby sun. And the one scientist who says he can help them (H+P)? They let him die. And than they fight the X-Men...why? Oh well, next issue promises a nice fight, so I'll wait till then.

Overall, this issue was definitely better than the last, as I said earlier. I only gave the last issue a 3 out of 5 stars, but I'll give this one a 4. It was better, and if you're interested in seeing Havok and Polaris' return, this one is worth picking up. As for the last issue? You don't neccessarilly have to get it if you don't want to.. ;)
