  1. If anyone out there is looking for a truly excellent done-in-one story…look no further.

    I’ve been aware of Frenzy since her time as an Acolyte in the 90s (though I believe she’s been around since the beginning of the first X-Factor series), but I think this might be the first time she’s ever been used as a multi-dimensional character.

    Really awesome stuff. Definitely a contender for my POTW.

    • agree with ken, never quite cared or understood the frenzy character, so quite a good story and a good reason why she is on the team, it finally makes sense now. the villain becomes a hero the question is answered why.

  2. This is a super-solid X-book — but judging by the lack of discussion/support, I wonder if this is the “one X-book too many” for a lot of people?

    All the people annoyed with Greg Land and the general feeling of disappointment in Uncanny would do well to save a dollar and get this title instead!

  3. Sorry Ken, Normally I agree with you and the this series has been stellar, But this issue was a stinker. And thats sugar coating it haha.

  4. I loved the issue, i just wish it hadn’t been an AvX tie in

  5. Did anyone else notice the error with the direction of the hand in the mirror in one of the flashback panels?

  6. It’s been a while since i’ve read an X-book that made me feel like such an unexpected connection to a character. I haven’t been following the X-books until recently, so Frenzy was on e of those characters that i sort of shrugged off – thinking that she was a relic of the 90s and that she would probably just be fodder for any X-writer’s plot development and didn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.

    I was completely overwhelmed by this sneak-attack in the midst of an obnoxious cross-over event. All of a sudden, Frenzy has an incredibly intense back story that justifies her attitude. It’s the sort of character development that I expect from Brian Wood or Warren Ellis or Marjorie Lui. I will now put Christos Gage in my list of Authors I Can Trust.

    And, dare I forget to mention, the art was fantastic. the transitions from flash-back to the present were so poignant that it was impossible not to feel what Frenzy was feeling and connect to her in a completely new way. And the second page’s leap from the plane was fantastic.

    I am so glad i didn’t pass this book up because of the AVSX banner (i’m a little tired of this event). I think this issue will be a classic.

  7. I think Gage has been knocking this out of the park since he came on. Before that, this book was getting close to the chopping block for me.
