…Mister Sinister Sees A Suicide Mission As…

…Salvation In The Contest Of Swords?!

The book opens with a dramatis personae and…

…in-story storyline catch-up.

Mister Sinister than proposes that his Hellions…

…lie, cheat and steal their way…

…to an advantage in X of Swords with Sinister leading the charge in the field to his chagrin; they’ll find all the Arakko swords first so they X-Men’s opponents need to forfeit the upcoming contest of swords.

Well, Sinister has a secret clone factory and…

…plays rock-paper-scissors for which of them will go on this perceived suicide mission.

The first head to Avalon and…

…barter there way into a journey in their land with their mad king – the brother of both Captain Britain.

The story just begins at the end; this likely continues in next week’s Excalibur #13 with X of Swords Part 9.

The Pulse:

Decent art, dialogue and characters interplay, but no action. The ending just sets up the story to continue in another title. 4 out of 10.
