Empire's End - Diane Duane

Lilandra and the Shi'Ar have a big problem. A creature that eats stars is headed their way, and if does too much damage to the core of the galaxy, good-bye galaxy.

This helps stir up political unrest and increase the assassination attempt rate upon the Empress, so she asks Charles for help. The Shi'Ar have a new power amplification technology that will amplify the X-Men's abilities to Silver Surfer type levels for very brief periods of time, so they have a shot at stopping it.

Lilandra won't risk the Imperial Guard, because she knows they are loyal, and watching her back, even if large parts of her Council, are not.

The problem with this technology is what if you like it too much - they have already had one Dark Phoenix episode.

A very cosmic level space opera X-Men story.

3.5 out of 5
