Claremont! You can tell the X-characters talk and act like they're supposed to, especially Kurt & Kitty. The pain they feel about the X-Men's "death" in FOTM feels real and the character interactions about how they have to move on from that difficult part of their life are handled excellently.
Follow up to the Inferno destruction of the X-Mansion was handled well. Kitty running the danger room to put Captain Britain thru the paces, etc. Kitty hanging out with the New Mutants for half an issue was a real treat and closed the door on her past adventures with that team.
Alan Davis! Davis' artwork is slick and polished and a real treat to see.
The Mojo Mayhem one-shot. Even though I always HATED Mojo as a character this issue was really well done in the same vein as the Art Adams illustrated X-Men annuals & New Mutants specials from this late 1980s era. This book almost seemed like it should have been another X-Men annual drawn by Art during this time period but was changed into an Excalibur one-shot. The story is basically Kitty & the X-babies, front & center, with the remainder of the Excalibur team only showing up at the end for a couple pages. Claremont's handling of Kitty's interactions with the X-babies, and realizing how much she missed the regular X-Men was perfect.
The Marshall Rogers illustrated issues were a drastic artistic change from the Alan Davis issues. Not sure why Rogers had changed his style by this point, but it pales in comparison to other artists work during this era and is a shadow of his former work a decade earlier on Batman, which was amazing. Rogers draws almost in sketches, with little detail. Honestly these issues were kind of a chore to plow thru compared to earlier chapters.
Not sure where Captain Britain had been prior to Excalibur, during this time, but he's handled mostly like a jerk. I didn't like his characterization at all. I see based on some of the bonus issues he was created back in the 1970s by Claremont but I didn't like his take on the character at all. He was the only one that really didn't "gel" with the others in my opinion.
Body/mind swapping ... ugh. This plot device grates on me to no end and was in use a couple of issues. Lazy writing? Either way I don't like it.
Mojo and Arcade were headlines as villains in this collection and in my opinion they're just kind of silly characters. Not my favorites.
The MCP issues where the team fights the Looney Tunes stand ins was terrible (and also not written by Claremont). The art by Erik Laresn is good, but I skimmed these issues.
