Who is the baddest demon sorceress of them all? Illyana Rasputin, that's who!
I can't be grateful enough for the backstory included at the end of this novel. I started there first or I would truly have been lost without it.
Short version - What has happened is poor Illyana dies from the Legacy Virus and then is resurrected without a soul thanks to the Magik-obsessed Belasco
who rules in Limbo. Illyana then defeats Belasco using Pixie by stealing a part of her soul and making a mini version of the

This book mostly features Nightcrawler, Magic, and Pixie. While I'm not completely sold on the newest character, the other two are among my favorites. The art is pretty good and the editors go out of their way to make this accessible to new readers, with a prologue taken from earlier issues of the New X-Men and a summery in the back of every major plot point that lead up to Magik's current situation. I get it because I was reading this stuff 20 years ago, but it still seems like a lot to chew fo ...more
If only the interior art was as great as the covers. It wasn't bad, just the same cartoony 'new x-men' type of art. And for a story set in hell, it didn't set a mood.
The story is pretty simple, Belasco's Daughter wants some soul gems and to dethrone Magik. Wolverine, Colossus and Nightcrawler are joined by Pixie, Mercury and Rockslide in a mission to hell. The story is a type of continuation from 'The Quest for Magik' from New X-Men

There's a mishmash of Magik-related material here that's nice to have, but the book really stands on the X-Infernus story itself. It's a good resolution of plot threads going back decades (and at least one of several such "finales", with others being Inferno and Death of the New Mutants), though the result is only “good”. Cebulski does at times seem to forget that the new Magik is a soulless copy of the original, and treats her without the finesse that other authors have.

First off, magik and nightcrawler are two of my most favorite x-men, for different reasons. So I will be bias. However, this is a fantastic story with almost perfect art. I personally love the pixie/magik tension and when nightcrawler explains his take on having a soul. Dark content, lots of tension and a compelling story is why I like it, having my favorite x-men is a bonus

I've been a Illyana Rasputin fan since the tender year of 1990 so of course i bought this. The art was nice, the story was better than most, but not excellent. Unfortunately i think almost all the other characters (except the classic Illyana and the like characters) in this gn are unbearable.

Decent story centered around Limbo and the more magical elements of the X-Men universe. Not much here that adds anything to the characters. It'r primarily 4 issues of action that could easily have been condensed to a two issue story wihout missing much.

Readable, just like that. I'm glad that Ilyana is back.
