The whole storyline was nicely over the top, and while the first four issues felt like they were nicely paced, even though the story could have easily taken thrice as long, this issue pouts the whole fight against Azazel into one issue, with little foreshadowing or explanation for what was going on. Basically, what happened? X-Men attack the grunts, Nightcrawler attacks his father, father makes a detour to stab Wolverine (since everyone does it, after he lost his healing factor), Kurt thinks "I probably should start my plan", Xaviers spirit: "I say no", both sides torch ships and Kurt executes his plan in 2-3 pages. For two brief instances, we switch to the Jean Grey school, and get completely surprised by a fight happening there...This probably should have been a 2-3 parter on its own. So far, I can't understand ANY reason for the X-Men being there in the first place. Just to fight the cannon fodder? Where were they ever a problem for anyone? A little bit more would have explained more about this, I think...but judging this by the previous: "Mindless fun"-attitude, it still is great. And it achieved its main objective: Nightcrawler is back. Lacking his soul, but he's back!
