Astonishing X-Men #4 Spoilers

London: Once Old Man Logan is possessed by the Shadow King and wakes up in the physical world, it’s up to Bishop to try and stop him. Professor Xavier contacts Psylocke mentally and tells her she’s the only one who can fight Logan. Betsy is suspicious of Xavier’s true identity, but he helps her maintain the psi-link to keep the others on the Astral Plane. Old Man Logan easily overcomes Bishop, kicking him out of the building. Bishop absorbs the kinetic energy of his fall, landing on the street unharmed. Psylocke takes matter in her own hands and fights Wolverine, pushing him out of the building telekinetically. Logan falls all the way down to the street and is soon gunned down by the British military aboard a helicopter. Wolverine goes berserk and Angel takes him down, dragging him to a department store across the street. The Shadow King then uses Logan to mind control the civilians nearby.

Astral Plane: Mystique and Fantomex are aware the Shadow King is playing tricks with them, but they chose to indulge themselves in luxury and enjoy the moment. They both have sex, and Raven reminds him this time she’s not pretending to be Psylocke. Meanwhile, Rogue and Gambit are caught in a similar situation. While Gambit intends to enjoy his time with her, Rogue is more focused on the mission, telling him their relationship doesn’t work anymore. Nevertheless, both decide to be with each other before resuming the mission. Suddenly, Xavier summons Mystique, Fantomex and Rogue and tells them he’s the real Xavier. Rogue asks where Gambit is, to which Xavier apologizes, saying he couldn’t save him. Gambit, much like Wolverine, wakes up in the physical world possessed by the Shadow King.

It took me only 5 minutes to read this comic. Not much happened here.
I was expecting a better fight between Betts and Logan.

Anyone still in doubt if that is really Xavier??

Could the Shadow King be generating even that as an illusion??

Hope that Gambit's possession develops better than Logan's.
