Cyclops are seen regrouping in the X-Diasoira classified location, where he divides the team into small group of two, he then orders them to search in different location for Hope, the first group consist of Magneto,Psylocke, Boom Boom are order to Wundagore the second group Namor, Sunspot, Hezibah to Tabula Rasa.
Meanwhile on Tabula Rasa, Montana a creature that looks like one the night people is given medical attention to one of his own, but is distrated when hears a impact so he quickly takes off the impact site. At the crash site a team of three Avengers Luke Cage, Thing and She-Hulk are exploring the surrounding area trying to locate the signal of Hope that directs them to a Cave. As they walk inside the cave the creature arrives and comments on how the three of them are similar to X-Men. Somewhere on Tabula Rasa Sunspot and Hezibah are waiting for Namor who returns form under water with help. Back in the Cave the Avengers are fighting a giant worm like creature and its little worm like minions, with ease they quickly dispose of the worms in and outside the Cave but are met by the X-Men and the battle begins with the creature form before looking on.
Uncanny X-Men #12 is a really solid issue with good fight sequence especially the fight between Namor and Thing. Kieron Gillen and Greg Land do a excellent job in my opinion making two minor unattractive characters look like bad-asses. Gillen also slips in alittle humor noticeably when Hezibah humorously asks the water creature queen if Namor is any good in bed,with that said Uncanny X-Men#12 is a definite pick up for those following the AvX series.
