All-New X-Men #38 (HERE BE SPOILERS!)

Honestly, I don't have a lot to say about this issue.

Gamora and company take the Black Vortex off Spartax's moon and go to some random planet where they decide to use the Vortex to upgrade the local inhabitant to show (somehow) that it can bring about universal peace.  But, Ronan has (somehow) discovered that they have the Vortex and that they're on said random planet.  He then (somehow) kicks cosmic-powered Gamora's ass and steals the Vortex.  They follow him to Hala and destroy a good part of it while demanding that the Supreme Intelligence return the Vortex to them.  Meanwhile, the rest of the group hides from pursuers (I'm assuming the Slaughter Squad...sorry...Lords) and then escapes on Peter's ship.  They then coincidentally run into Cyclops' ship.

In other words, it's not terrible, but it's also not interesting. The only "moment" during the issue was Angel, Beast, and Gamora being oblivious to the destruction that Ronan wrecked on the random planet, with the inhabitants that they were planning on "upgrading" for their own good mourning their dead.  But, one panel doesn't a solid issue make.
