Extraordinary X-Men #1 review

Justice League United #7 review

We’re halfway through the five-part Infinitus Saga, teaming Justice League United with the Legion of Super-Heroes. After an initial sortie, interstellar baddie Byth and his Cadre henchmen escape with the child Ultra, whose cosmic destiny is, it seems, to become a being named Infinitus and destroy the 31st century.
