We can stop looking guys, I’ve found it – the worst X-Men book ever!

The premise is: Azazel aka Satan is trying to find a way to get to Earth from the nether-realm he inhabits (Hell, I suppose? Doesn’t look it) so he goes to Earth to impregnate a number of women who’ll give birth to a number of demons who’ll then be able to open a portal to allow him access to Earth.

I can tell you right away what the weakest part of this volume was:
The title story, the main story and that is not a good sign.

I'm giving this one an extra star because of the superb Mystique flashback issue and the ongoing Cain/Sammy plot.

The Draco story is terrible -- the worst of the Austen run.

Finally we get to learn the origin of nightcrawler. A twisting and confusing story at first but in the end a good origin and great story
