    Liked the issue overall as a part one of three. Beyond the interesting mystery (who's behind the assassin and what's the big picture agenda?) and a new twist on an old idea (now it's not just X-23 clones, but a cyborg X-23 clone), I like how it's keeping things tied to the characters with the question about what to do with the assassin and giving good conflict for Laura and Gabby over whether the assassin can be saved or not (given that this franchise has dealt a lot with the idea of rescuing exploited people, I'm somewhat hoping this's a "you can't save everyone" kind of story for a change of pace and new perspective).

    Given that there hasn't been any news about the series after this story arc, I really hope it's not being paused/canceled for that Age of X-Man event coming up next year.

    Just a generalization?

    I'm hoping for at least an "X-Assassin sacrifices gerself" scenario. But having Laura be forced to put ger down would make for great conflict between the sisters, and emotional ground to explore.

    Given that there hasn't been any news about the series after this story arc, I really hope it's not being paused/canceled for that Age of X-Man event coming up next year.
    God I hope not, too. I already don't care for yet ANOTHER AU story/event so soon on the heels of Secret Empire. It's just getting tired.

    Just a generalization?
    In which case why specifically mention Alchemax at all?
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...
