This issue was kind of a waste of money, to be honest. Nothing happened in this that couldn't have featured in a single page of exposition, instead of an entire issue. There wasn't even any character development outside of John Walker doing his best Captain America impersonation - although I'm guessing that the President we (don't really) see is the new one following the latest Ultimates?
Just never at any point really feel like I was paying £3 for anything more than a few nice drawings of Nimrod.
This entire run on X-Men has been really disappointing over all. Having a big plan, and setting things in place to make an epic story is all well and good, but Spencer's played such a long, long game that we've had nearly a dozen issues and still haven't gotten to the point where we actually have an X-Men team - and almost all of the stuff he's set up won't even be touched on for over another year anyway. Might have been better if the Stryker stuff was a stronger story - but, honestly, it's really not.
