After the fallout from the X-Men’s adventure in Limbo, Fabio decides to return to his family who have all sorts of questions when they discover his mutant ability and concerns about just what the X-Men terrorists did to him. This half of the storyline also picks up the loose thread of Dazzler (started before the Limbo arc) who shows up wanting Fabio’s help to find Cyclops.

The other half of the issue deals mainly with a conversation between Cyclops and Magneto over their recent trust issues (Cyclops killing Professor X, Magneto ratting out the X-Men to S.H.I.E.L.D.) as well as the X-Men rescuing another young mutant (with the power to control mechanical devices with his mind) from a quick-drawing police officer who shoots the young man and decides to ask questions later.

The first issue back from Limbo plays on two classic X-Men themes: a family’s concern and distrust of a new mutant’s abilities and (as Magneto would put it) how homo sapiens react in fear and danger at the presence of homo superior. Worth a look.
