Written by Mike Benson

Colors by Lee Loughridge
Lettered by VC’s Clayton Cowles
If I had my way, the logo of this site would be a copywriteable version of the Shadow and Flame miniseries and Magik’s new logo.
Benson writes Illyana pretty well in character, super sassy and ruler of every room she enters.
Also nice to see her drawn in a more classic style by Texeira.
It wasn’t horrible to read Thor again. Did not get updated on his latest adventures, but if you didn’t know who he is, the creative team tells you everything you need to know to enjoy the story.
This story does a better job of showing why Magik rules and why Thor is okay.
Glad someone remembered that the last time these two characters met, Magik and her brother beat the tar out of the thunder god.
Thor starts just beating demons in Limbo and Illyana tells him there are better ways.
Because of Thor’s foolishness, they go from fight manageable demons to more powerful creatures.
I don’t believe we will ever she what happens next and how she fixes the problem he started but once she returns him to Earth, I got the impression that she solved the problem quickly.
Stick around for the Cyclops and Superior Spidet-Man story (Cyclops has a page also in the Magik story, along with Goldballs / Triage / Hijack)
