Pepe Larraz and Marte Gracia can make anything look epic, but Duggan hands them a script which is pretty epic anyways, so, you know, epicness abounds!
The High Evolutionary is a big bag of d***s, and the X-Men have no choice but to turn down his helpful offer to wipe out the human race for them. Which, you know, is probably for the best. It turns out the Rogue has beef with his daughter too, and it’s nice to see Rogue finally getting some attention after all this time. She never felt like a good fit in Excalibur and her presence makes a lot more sense here.
The art is really the main attraction here though, and Larraz and Garcia could make the opening of an envelope look cool.
