Oh dear god...this issue.

"People are getting tired of always having Magneto as the enemy, always the same interaction by the characters. Maybe we should stop using him for a while." - "Ah, I know! An alien takes him from the planet and vows to never return again!" "Erm...I didn't say-" "This could mean we can let Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch switch sides!" "What, becoming X-Men?" "No, Avengers, duh." "But what about Toad and Mastermind?" "Oh right...well...the alien turns Mastermind into stone and...know what? Toad is loyal and gets kidnapped with Magneto." "Isn't that a very cheap and unnecessary final way of stopping their appearances?" "Yes. Yes it is."

More Gems: Wanda actually wants to join the X-Men...at least for this mission. But Quicksilver declines and tells her, he is telling her, what to do. Wow, what an X-Hole. And Professor X gets in at the action at the end, which leads to the problem of concealing him, when the army arrives. Solution? "The Beast keeps spinning in front of us! It almost looks hypnotic..."

Letting the Brotherhood appear so often is just as much a mistake as throwing them away completely, and this story feels rushed and is filled with bad decisions and quick solutions. It's still an enjoyable read, if only for the sheer ridiculousness of it all.
