From Marvel: “The X-Men on Utopia are getting sicker and sicker and their powers are shutting down one-by-one. Wolverine’s healing factor is down and he’s suffering adamantium poisoning, but he’s much better off than the mutants whose mutation defines their bodies, like Rockslide and Mercury. And if that weren’t bad enough, The Collective Man has Chinatown in the palms of his many hands and the Sublime Corporation is kicking the plan they’ve been hatching since #515 into high gear!”

In stores December 22, 2010.

Can’t say I really enjoyed this issue or the art, but Wolverine’s three pages were pretty awesome…

From Marvel: “CURSE OF THE MUTANTS, CONCLUSION: Somehow, the X-Men have weathered the vampire raid on Utopia, but mutants can’t claim total victory yet. Jubilee still needs the X-Men’s help, and Xarus still commands an overwhelming force of bloodsuckers. Will Dracula’s intervention be the final nail in Xarus’s coffin…or will he make even more trouble for the X-Men than his upstart son ever could?”

The vampire arc, the first of this adjectiveless X-Men series, comes to a close. I can’t say I loved it either, but it does certainly change how Wolverine and Jubilee will be interacting in the future…
