    Esta parte de la historia es muy interesante pues cuenta cómo Logan y Scott van uniéndose más y cazando objetivos, la parte más divertida desde luego es el reencuentro entre Scott y Emma quien ha removido de los pensamientos de Scott y Logan su existencia misma. Ellos no la recuerdan debido a una modificación psíquica que ella implantó.

Un regreso al status quo de los X-Men a mi parecer bien logrado aunque lamentablemente la serie acaba aquí y esperamos al siguiente nuevo evento. (Espero que no arruine todo) El final lo máximo 5 estrellas. Lástima que a mi parecer el dibujante no da la talla y que se hubiera visto todo más épico con otro estilo.

    Ultimately, just another pointless volume, nothing that happens in this series seems to have impact in the Hickman's relaunch, so this is only recommended for completists. The Hellfire Club actually started out strong, mainly because of Emma Frost and the story around her.

Can't say it wasn't a fun read, but man, Rosenberg drops the ball on the last issue, the book felt incredibly rushed, you can tell he was probably sacked from the series now that Hickman is gonna relaunch the whole thing and it shows, you can read my spoileristic review of the last issue here, it sucked.

    Matthew Rosenberg's X-Men run continues to head straight downhill, ending up in the dumpster. The biggest problem is the excessive compression, which makes this volume almost farcical. It's like reading a few years worth of X-Men comic in summary, as they bounce from one villain to another, one plot to another. And there's really no overarching thread to hold everything together: this is just an author pushing characters around in the worse way.

And there's really no overarching thread to hold everything together: this is just an author pushing characters around in the worse way. And then there's the murderfest that continues in this volume, as Rosenberg executes another few fan favorites. But it's all so decompressed that there's no time to mourn anyone, except for a single funeral at the start. Sometimes, a character's elimination is so abrupt that it's easy to forget. It's a shame: Rosenberg offers up some great continuity. A lot of it is little stuff, bringing pack minor characters like the Nasty Boys and the Upstarts. But he also nails the post-Schism antagonism between Scott and Logan and more importantly starts the process of rehabilitating Emma's character. But his writing just isn't up to snuff, and whenever we move from character to plot, this volume takes a big header. (And the biggest plot of the comic, of a newfound hatred for mutants, in the end seems to go nowhere, exacerbating the issue.)

    I didn't like this. The plot was all over the place, plus Rosenberg is too dialgoue heavy at times.

    - Emma, you're the most duplicitous creature I've ever encountered. Is there even a term for someone like you? - Survivor.

    Somehow, I never reviewed volume 1 - not sure how that happened, but consider this a review of both. Ok. It's a super grimdark story, deaths right and left... At this point, it is basically an alternate universe x-book (heck, with whatever the heck is going on in Hickman's crazy reboot, what isn't at this point?). So it has a sort of been there, done that sort of thing going on. And in the grand canon scheme of things, this one just doesn't matter with all of the resurrections and craziness on Somehow, I never reviewed volume 1 - not sure how that happened, but consider this a review of both.

I've also had a hit or miss feeling with Rosenberg's books that I have read. But... But... It is just so good despite all of that. Rosenberg freaking nails these characters. Scott, Logan, Emma, Sinister - they seem so completely spot on. And he brings in so many characters we haven't seen for a long time (I mean, the flipping Nasty Boys make an appearance. That's a deep cut.) It isn't light on heavy dialogue (something I struggle with in modern comics. What can I say? I dig words.) and the dialogue rings true. There are some excellent twists (even one that "fixes" a problem I had with a character in an earlier volume of his) and they don't come out of thin air. A lot will say this story doesn't matter because of the reboot. But in that sense, do any of these stories matter? I think this one is really well-written and that is what matters most to me.

    Like the previous volume, this is a really dark book, thematically. The X-Men (and all mutants really) are truly at the end, more so than every before. The team struggles with surviving, what measures they should take, the hows and whys of what they are doing. Most of what you generally see in an X-Men comic (at least in the first couple decades) but compressed down to within 6-12 issues. The problem is that stuff happens really fast, including lots of characters dying. I mean lots. Some in more Like the previous volume, this is a really dark book, thematically.

The problem is that stuff happens really fast, including lots of characters dying. I mean lots. Some in more creative, natural ways than others. At this pace, I step back and think much of what happens in the book is both for shock value and also knowing that the book will end soon and everything will be undone, so this story has free reign to do what it wants. The other idea is that this book sets up the X-Universe exactly where Hickman wants it to be for House of X/Powers of X, which at this time haven't read yet. There are some interesting moments, but I think in a year or two this short run will be forgotten.

    To be entirely fair to writer Matthew Rosenberg, he had to cut his story short when Marvel rehired Jonathan Hickman to revamp their entire X-Men line. We may never know exactly what Rosenberg had originally planned and how much editorial interfered with what we ended up with.

We may never know exactly what Rosenberg had originally planned and how much editorial interfered with what we ended up with. The volume that led into this one was fantastic and I was really loving the direction of the story, with Cyclops and Wolverine building a small team of desperate X-Men who just wanted to remove some of their enemies off the playing board after most of their team had seemingly died (they had merely been transported to the alternate universe created by Nate Grey, but nobody left in the normal world knew that). A good chunk of this story was really entertaining and worked well for me (all of the stuff with Emma Frost and how she was handling the Office of National Emergency I quite enjoyed), but there were other parts that didn't work for me at all (mostly the beginning and ending of the story). In the beginning, we learn how Rahne Sinclair died (an event which actually took place off-panel), and it's the cheapest, crappiest death ever, basically just used to tie into modern real-world transphobia. I'm not sure what Rosenberg was trying to accomplish here, but taking a fan-favorite character and then just offing her in an allegory about transgender violence was very poorly done. I realize that the X-Men have always served as an allegory for discriminated minority groups, but the way this was just shoehorned in without serving the overall story caused it to have very little impact and made me wonder if the author just disliked Wolvesbane. And it wasn't really addressed in any meaningful way to give weight to the issue of violence against transgender people either. Speaking of character deaths, they come so hard and fast in this volume that the vast majority of them feel cheap, with characters barely taking the time to acknowledge them after the funeral of Wolvesbane (for someone who claims to love the X-Men as much as Rosenberg does, he sure does kill off an awful lot of them). These events really feel as if they have no importance or purpose on their own merits and are merely about getting the chess pieces into place for Hickman to play with them (or just added for simple shock value and they'll be "reset" when Hickman takes over). The ending is particularly rushed and unsatisfying (not necessarily Rosenberg's fault given how much he had to resolve in a very short time), with several characters charging to their deaths for no reason. I get that he was trying to make everything seem as hopeless as possible before the majority of X-Men made their triumphant here-to-save-the-day return, but it's odd to see several character just throw their lives away when they've fought and survived against far worse odds countless times before. If things were truly supposed to be that hopeless, the story didn't do an effective job of selling it to me, and the character deaths feel unearned. (view spoiler)[And as for Magik, what was the fallout from the demon inside her breaking free? We never find out as we cut to another scene and never learn more about this. It clearly won't matter for Hickman's upcoming story, but it's not exactly satisfying to this one. (hide spoiler)] Despite these negatives though, much of this really WAS fun to read. I really like the team that Rosenberg put together and how they interact with each other. Their overall mission was really enjoyable to read and as I mentioned before, all of the stuff with Emma Frost was really great (particularly the issue that went back and showed what she'd been up to for the past several months). The art (particularly the issues by Salvador Larroca) was fantastic as always, but a couple pages near the end of the volume where they switch artists are jarringly bad. The climactic ending is probably not the best moment for the worst art to appear. Ultimately because of how everyone knows that Hickman's story that's going to change everything is right around the corner and because of how this was rushed to conclusion in preparation for that Hickman revamp, the events of this volume feel like they simply don't matter at all. Which is a damn shame, because I was loving where Rosenberg's story was going in the last volume (of course, things would have inevitably changed considerably after the majority of X-Men returned from Nate Grey's alternate universe anyway, so it's hard to say what this story would have been like going forward had it been allowed to continue). I'd like to see Rosenberg get another crack at the X-Men however and have the creative freedom to properly tell a complete story. 2.5 stars

    The clock is ticking, and time is running out for the X-Men. As the ONE draw closer, Emma Frost makes her move, and the X-Men continue to strike off names from their hit list. But they're losing team members thick and fast, and it's only a matter of time before the faith that the remaining team have in Wolverine and Cyclops shatters beyond repair.

But they're losing team members thick and fast, and it's only a matter of time before the faith that the remaining team have in Wolverine and Cyclops shatters beyond repair. I think some context helps with this volume. With Jonathan Hickman's run on the horizon, it was basically carte blanche for Matthew Rosenberg to do whatever the hell he wanted, kill whoever he wanted, and have a blast doing it - and you can tell that he is. You can tell that he loves writing these characters, but he also knows what this freedom means, and he's running with it right to the end. Reading this in single issues was quite shocking, considering the high body count. But in hindsight, it makes total sense, and in the process Rosenberg manages to rope in as many X-characters as he can along the way, whether to kill them off or just have them do epic things (like Emma Frost - Rosenberg writes a mean Emma Frost), so there's something for everyone here. On art is Salvador Larocca, with his usual your-mileage-may-vary tracey-faces. as well as Carlos Gomez and Carlos Villa who I could not tell apart if you paid me. The art's fine, but the Larocca issues are the better ones. If you take this at face value, you'll probably come away with a sour taste in your mouth. But with some context, and a little suspension of belief, this run on Uncanny X-Men is great fun. It may feel inconsequential, especially after reading Powers Of X and House Of X, but that doesn't make it any less fun while it lasts.

    Read as single issues. Ah, the feels. So many bad things happened. The deaths of favorite characters, combined with the earlier deaths of favorite characters from previous installments. It was just a lot. And yet, even with all the death and terrible things, there was ONE glorious moment fans have been waiting for for about 15 years. And just a tiny sliver of hope for the future. Obviously, advertisements for House of X and Powers of X say they are going to completely revamp the X-Men status quo. Read as single issues. Ah, the feels. So many bad things happened.

You can tell, because they played fast and loose with the status quo in this run of Uncanny X-Men. Surely all these deaths can't be permanent. Right?

    The Second Volume is here and is set to link to the X-Men's advenrtures in Age of X-Man. We follow our Earthbound X-Men with Cyclops and Wolverine really getting back into the back and forth of friendship and distrust. Emma Frost steps back into her role as hero/villain. Dani tries to maintain some calm. We get another military Colonel thinking he can control the X-Men and we get a solution to the X-Men's feared and mistrusted by humans issues - kind of!

A great read for new and old X-Men fans and I do like the way some of the so-called minor characters get to have their moment in the spotlight.

    Hoo, doggy, did this series go off the rails. This gets so bad in its final arc, if you told me that Marvel asked Rosenberg to purposely torpedo this book in order to make Jonathan Hickman's upcoming relaunch feel even more refreshing, I would believe you. Because the alternative - that this is actually the story that Rosenberg wanted to tell, and how he wanted to tell it - is too depressing to even consider.

    Cool mutant action, but I found it almost totally incomprehensible. I'm missing some major pieces of backstory. What reality is this? Why is Cyclops alive? Why is Dark Beast a cyborg? Am I supposed to take any or all of the many gruesome "deaths" seriously? If not, fine- two stars for a horrifying alternate world. If so, then one star.

    I have mixed feelings...its is stacked on an event but not part of the event as it comes to the end before Hickman. I feel like I have seen some of this before and sadly just not dialed in X-men yet.
