As much as I can, I agree with you. It's my only X-men title so I can't compare but it certainly is a fun title. It knows exactly what it is and is embracing its oh-so-excellent premise. Long may it continue!

It really reminds me(and others) a lot of how awesome Exiles used to be before Claremont went nuts. Also, it'd be awesome if Dazzler could bring Kurt and some good version of Xavier back to 616 with her.

Seriously. at this point of screwed up 616 characterization. i would take an easy out and just let them bring alternate versions of Bishop, Cyclops and Xavier to re-work all the years of bad, bad writing. We already have a badass AoA Nightcrawler in the 616..let him join the X-Men and do uber cool teleportation stuff that the 616 Kurt was too holy to do.

AOA Kurt's a but too surly. I really like the version in this book, we'd just have to teach him how to kill lol

The S&M needs to be toned down like 90% on that cover

Finally got round to re-reading 4-5, so I can finally give my verdict on 5, excellent stuff.

Pak seemed to imply that Xavier had a secret in issue 1 and his clash with "The Boss" was a bit heavy handed but reminded the us of this pretty well. The teamwork of Alison and Kurt has been the most enjoyable part of this series so far, it's cheesy, light-hearted and most of all fun. Dazzlers "pow pow" gun-hands panel from #4 is certainly the highlight of the arc for me, captures the tone of this series so well.

My only gripe I suppose is that things do happen very quickly. To a point I think this is a good thing, 2 and done stories are excellent and it means that Pak might actually get to finish his 10 Xaviers story before being cancelled however an extra issue in each arc so far would have fleshed them out quite nicely

The tone shifts to Kurt for the next two issues before a .1 issue (Already, are you serious marvel?). Really looking forward to learning a bit more about Kurt and obviously any further revelations from the mysterious head in a jar...

She stayed on the first world they visited.

Nope, apparently that's the 616 Sage as well. She somehow ended up on the last world they were on after leaving the Exiles base.

The book. Both it and Age of Apocalypse are ending with this mini-event.
