I loved this series, the writing was wonderful, D-Cel is an amazing new character that I want to see more of, and the art, by Ron Garney, was not only wonderful but was a perfect fit for the series.
However…this issue did not provide a satisfying conclusion. Instead it seemed to set up a new series that I’m honestly not sure we’re going to get. Which is a shame, because I definitely want more of this. If this was #5 of an ongoing series I’d have no complaints, but it’s not, it’s the final issue of a limited series and not only did it leave a lot unresolved, but it finished with the formation of a new team I’m afraid we may never see again.
Also, the revelation of why D-Cel was in denial about being a mutant felt rushed and lacked some of the emotional impact that it deserved.
Still, as I said, I loved this series overall. It was good to see Cain get some time with Professor X and Black Tom in this issue too. This series definitely grew and developed Cain’s character, and that’s why I want more. I’m afraid that in a year or two he’ll show up somewhere else and everything from this series will be ignored. So, come on Marvel, give Nicieza and Garney an ongoing Juggernaut book…and bring back D-Cel…she’ll just get bored on Krakoa anyway.
