Well, its finally here - the showdown between the Goblin Queen and Havok. I went into this expecting good things...but this is the Mutant X universe where nothing in what you expected.
Basically this issue consists of gathering of the forces of good to fight the Goblin Queen. Lots of self doubt on Havok's part, as usual. He makes it to New York to face the Goblin Queen and... he remembers dying. Turns out we're transported into his mind (or maybe the astral plain) where Scotty is hanging out. There is a lot of dialogue and the Goblin Queen is defeated in a tiny panel. Havok wonders how and the rest of the world starts to pick up the pieces of the Goblin Queen's mess.
What a piece of crap ending. No grand 12 page fight scene, no death of heroes and villains alike, just a big stinking fart of a deus ex machina. What a waste of time and paper. Trees died to print this drivel.
Well, I think we'll shelve this series for a bit (there are 20 more issues plus 2 annuals) - be back here tomorrow to find out what the long box holds.
