Review: With nearly every episode having a short section take place in the Savage Land this season, itís not too much of a surprise to find thatís where the story gets moving.

The X-Men finally learn where the Professor is, and we get to see the end of Morph/Sinister saga. I couldnít help but feel slightly disappointed by this finale. Theyíre not bad episodes, but I couldíve done without Kazar, and we had such a good build up going in, this had to be really special not to disappoint.

I think Sinister was a great villain, so it was good to see him get a good send off. The laser vs laser was a bit cheesy, but it wasnít laughably bad.

Undoubtedly my favourite part of the episode is the ending, in which Magneto and Xavier say their goodbyes. I think this series nailed Magneto and Xavierís relationship as good enemies, better friends. I like that they could never outright hate each other. The final shot of Magneto slowly floating away smiling was a great way to end the season.

Not bad, not brilliant, overall.
