    Does X-men and/or X-Force know about this whole THE WORLD thing mentioned in the Recap Page? Or that another baby Apocalypse is there - does this negate the impact of Fantomex killing the arch foe? Also with the online solicit there are similar looking stasis-like tubes with X-men in them including Phoenix - uhh do readers know whats up with that? There is no 'body' for Magneto though [on next issue cover too] but just a [copy of?] his helmet. Was it a good handling of Fantomex? Any chance of the phony Frenchman getting the boot for harboring all this and a Nimrod too? Hope so - or else give HIM X-Force leadership and give back Logan and Angel.

They know about the World, but not that Kid Apocalypse is there. None of the tubes have bodies in them, just costumes. It's a memorial to the fallen of various timelines.

I really don't care if it's a good handling of Fantomex or not, because I simply don't care about the character. He's typically completely amoral, so he can do pretty much anything and it be correct. I don't see anything that would give a reason for him to be kicked from the team. The team had already decided to let Kid Apocalypse live when he seemingly killed him. Now we see that he didn't really kill him. The tubes are just irrelevant.

    Hmmm, remind me how/when Psylocke fared against Shadow King before? And do we learn Deathlok's previous chronological appearancce to this arc? Otherwise got the basics from this very informative and complimentary vid review:

In the so-called "Psi-War" (X-Men v2 #77-78), she defeated him and imprisoned him in her mind, thereby losing her powers for a period of time. He was seemingly released during the so-called "six-month gap," when Jean and Betsy switched powers.

Later, after Betsy's death in X-Treme X-Men (#4), Shadow King attacks her on the astral plane.

Then later, in New Excalibur, the Shadow King returns with his Shadow X-Men from a different timeline. Betsy again defeats him just before she is sent traveling with the Exiles.

She tends fare extremely well against the Shadow King. One could argue that she fares better than Xavier, since she's still walking.

I don't know enough about this Deathlok to comment.
