I haven't read it yet, but I agree with this guy: Jean Grey might just be able to beat off a sliver of Void, where others couldn't.

There seems to be a lot of Fraction hostility around Uncanny. I've found this run pretty good. I don't like the yo-yo art from fine detail to bubble bodies and back every couple of issues.

There are just too many X-men. It like Fraction doesn't want to be writing the X-men, but something else. He's pulled in some pretty nice under used characters from all over the place. I wish he wouldn't use the Young X-men so much. Perhaps he could do a little less with the Astonishing and X-Force crowd too. There are plenty of characters there now, so Fraction should concentrate on them.

I think Fraction succeeds. He gives these characters character. He has some interesting villains. The stories make sense. Morrison and Whedon have produced the best X-men in recent years (for my money), but Fraction is not that far behind.

I'm loving Fraction's work, haven't really had any problems with it. Considering the huge amount of stuff he has to work into he's doing a stellar job, IMO.

And I really did find the Black Box plausible. It's not like Xavier said "oh yeah, Scott knew that all along." He instead went "holy crap, wtf just happened?" lol ;\)
