A Quick Look

While this issue’s art isn’t the best, the script delivers. For once the X-Men actually kick the crap out of their enemies and look good doing so. I mean, Cyclops blasts a freaking Skrull ship in half all by his lonesome! To quote:

“You’ve got your targets. Hit them until they stop moving.”

Like I said, Cyclops has become more bad ass.

Even a Skrull commander can’t help but poop his pants a little as he announces the arrival of the X-Men to his fellow warriors. His expression says it all, “We’re dealing with the X-Men!”

As silly as this issue is at times (and it has its moments), it shows the X-Men acting as a team, complete with different strike forces. The mutants inside these strike forces play to their powers, thus allowing the X-Men to operate as a cohesive unit. It’s nice to see that.

Writer Mike Carey must be a fan of Canadian brew as a member of the San Francisco PD is named ‘Molson.’ There’s even a small tribute to The Lord of the Rings in this issue…
