Review: I suppose this is as good as any place to say it, Bishop and the guy in the axis were both as annoying as hell throughout the story. Their presence here only took us away from the story more often than not, and the voice of the unnamed janitor was simply annoying. Now, I have a soft spot for cruel, nameless janitors thanks in no small part to the greatest sitcom of all time, but man, this guy was irritating to the extreme. He was easily the worst part of the entire story.

Enough of him, because it’s time to praise one of my favourite moments from the entire series. After Cyclops bizarrely short interrogation scene, we get to see Wolverine the bad ass at his best. Hounding Sabertooth for information, we get a perfectly staged scene of Wolverine about to beat the crap out of him. I couldn’t help but snigger at Beast and Wolverine’s exchange.

BEAST: I understood that he refused to talk?


This episode delved into the story a little more, finally explaining Apocalypse’s plan, with The X-Men rushing to stop him. This episode is fairly entertaining, it’s not until the following episode were most of the story goes to pot, but the episode never reaches the heights of it’s predecessor.
