Wolverine and the X-Men #37 (HERE BE SPOILERS!)

I don't have much to say about this issue, since it pretty quickly devolves into a "Who's on first?" comedy of multiple identities.  It's not a terrible issue, since Aaron plays up that confusion for laughs.  But, it doesn't really go much beyond that.  Throughout the issue, I had trouble remembering who injured whom in the last issue and I'm still not entirely sure what the future Brotherhood's plans are.  Future-original Jean seems to think that the original X-Men, the present Brotherhood and X-Men, and the future X-Men are going to think that S.H.I.E.L.D. attacked them, when she was the one who commandeered the Helicarriers.  But, with the sheer number of telepaths on the other side, it seems pretty reasonable to expect one of them to see through that ruse.  Moreover, it's still unclear why the future Brotherhood hate humans, since I'm still not convinced one of them attacked future Dazzler.  This last issue has a lot to cover.

*** (three of five stars)
