    This issue Xavier told a couple more X-men (w/o yet convincing readers).

What's odd is that they've decided to use the same type of chat bubbles for Shadow King and Xavier.

    This issue the other 4 heroes are seen in their paired-off, laid-back "luxury-traps" where we see idle chit-chat and are freed by "Xavier" before they say anything meaningful - so, basically we didn't get nothing from them. Well, except that Gambit is now a pawn like OML - and curiously Mystique was around in the '20s?!

We've already known she was around in the 1920s. We don't really know precisely when she was born, but it's at least in the 19th century. She met Destiny circa the turn of the 19th/20th centuries. She met Logan in 1921.

    This issue Bishop falls from the tower and ends up standing on the ground (after an impressive (maybe implausible) creative superpower usage.

I don't find it implausible. It's sort of the same as when he used his power to stop that train way back when.

It did progress the plot. The team is beginning to rally to defeat Shadow King.
