As usual this artwork has many very nice visual elements buuut there are always times during fights with the repeated closeups making the action choreography unclear/bothersome. Otherwise, this was a simple wrap up to a simple arc that shouldve simply been a self contained annual...

Adjectiveless X-men 10

Spidey has a couple risque moments with Emma.
Spidey gets a deep seeded wish come true to kick Logan in the face.
Spidey blinks and basically doesnt even see(acknowledge) Gambit or Storm during the fighting(cameoing).
Spidey inadvertantly forms an uneasy truce with Lizard and his inevitable threat by letting him go his own way because... ?? He's tired?!

Emma gets crawl thru more sewers and hardly smears despite her disdain.
Emma has heroic repartee with Dark Beast and gets insulted by Lizard.
Emma basically saves the day (with a pipe wrench!) so the kids get freed.
Emma gets to share a classic cool double punch with Spidey.

Dark Beast fate/status in fact was SPOILERed on that TBolts cover.
Dark Beast is struck down by Lizard in very disappointing "NO!" moment because of the very poor panel presentation.
Dark Beast may be brought to justice but he still holds the cards to successfully creating a Reptile Army for any government that would want it - too bad Scott was too busy soaking in the WINNING spotlight on the X-men instead of bagging the beast.
Dark Beast gets escorted by Wolverine so that the Canu¢k can do something positive this appearance.
