It will resume the week of June 9th...

I could use the break, I don't even have a book coming out this week to read. I guess fresh's 2 books will have to do for my fix. I'll probably get more homework done that way though.

I don't recall any of the original X-Men ever losing both of their hands...that's rough!
How did that happen anyways?

How did Iceman get Electrical Burns? They were very fast panels that had no text, I guess we will have to say that they both were Nimrodded.

Uncanny X-Men #525 - Second Coming: Chapter 10

We're getting closer to the endgame here and the stakes feel like they're getting higher. Hope is pissed at Scott for sending Cable on a suicide mission. Cable and X-Force arrive in the future and see just how bad things are. The rest of the X-Men are stuck in the sphere fighting for their lives against the Nimrods. And some more MU help shows up to try and break through the forcefield. I was great to see Reed, Tony, and Dr. Nemesis putting their heads together. Also, loved the Watchmen line by Fantomex.

It was nice to see Fantomex. This was a solid issue, some great moments.

Cable's line about how he has blown up things way bigger, the shout out to Days Of Future Past, the humans shocked to see mutants in the future. Awesome.

All of the scientists working on the dome was a pretty cool, Thing and Thor getting brutalized trying to smash their way in was great.

Namor brawling with two Nimrods was cool, I like how he is totally bad ass.

Great issue, can't wait for another.

Yet another mediocre Fraction issue...I'm sorry but I feel with him there's very little attention to detail. I always look to the X-Men comic book for interesting and different uses of each character's mutant powers (like it used to be in the old Claremont days)...

there's no surprise...i don't know. I never feel the need to re-read these issues because its a one-time read situation. Easy to get, not-so complex

Also, if any characters should be maimed its the X-Club. I can't believe I actually bought that Blind Science one-shot. what was i thinking??? The Hellbound story is better to me...i like the line-up in the story

Posted a comment there. By no means was this a groundbreaking issue, but it was fast paced and carried the story along. The dialog was pretty rancid for the most part, I agree, but the plotting was done well.

i'm glad i'm not alone on this...thought i was maybe being a little harsh
but C'mon...there's so many great characters. Also, was there even one mention in the issue that Kurt is freakin' DEAD now?!

I realize it's a major death, but it wouldn't read well for them to, every issue, reference it.

"Oh my god! Every mutant is dead!"
"Just like Kurt!!!"

I get that. But I mean, do somethin'...with issues like that I'm like, Why are they starting a 3rd X-Men title??? Uncanny needs a re-haul stat. Put Medina on Uncanny and give it the flagship title attention it deserves.

Marvel's starting to irritate me. I'm moving over to DC...slowly, but surely

I have such mixed feelings about this issue. Every critic on the web has blasted Fraction and with every right to do so. Time and time again the writer has failed to seperate himself from previous (or other current X-sister-related title) writers, other than being known for "going against type."

-There's Fantomex with a stupid Watchmen movie joke. A 5-minute clip in that movie is far better than Fraction's run entirely. I love Fantomex, but don't want to see a Deadpool clone.

-Storm and Iceman finally break strides and impact the story like many of us wish they would. Namor has his big moment.

-Cable also gets the good lines in the X-Force's Days of Future Past while Archangel acts strangely...again. With no surprise, Fraction's character work with X-Men hasn't been a treat. Considering he's arguably the "essential" Iron Man writer--and has his chance to duplicate his mini-success with Thor--his continued presence in Uncanny after Second Coming makes no sense. He hasn't been Chuck Austen bad, but there are far more other capable "X" writers who deserve the shot. Not like this has been Bendis on New Avengers, ya know...

-The art's pretty to look at but yet again appears too cartoony for such a heady story. Sharper, darker details would match the X-tinction inspired story.

-It's funny, because for the most part I really enjoyed this issue. It's when you finally kick back and think about all the mishaps that make you wonder how much more fine-tuned this event could be with another lead act. While it's had it's share of Messiah Complex ups and downs, the storm is coming within the new few weeks...and it's time to get dirty.

3/5

New Mutants #14 - Second Coming: Chapter 11

Whoa, probably the best SC issue in weeks! Hope stepping up. Scott rallying the troops. Mutants fighting for their lives against the Nimrods. Professor utilizing his son Legion. Cypher continuing to use his powers in badass ways (I loved his line about X-Force! "Violence is a primitive ugly language. Yet I must admit their fluency allows for poetry..."). And a very interesting development in the future. Not to mention a final page with a certain somebody finally entering the battle...

Zeb Wells is a vastly underrated writer, he's killing it on this story. The art for the NM issues has been great too.

I couldn't agree more. I feel like with this issue Second Coming is finally coming together for the final showdown between X-Men and Bastion and his army of Nimrod Sentinels. Its just what I've been waiting for. This is Wells best issue of New Mutants to date and it makes me much more excited for the upcoming "Fall of the New Mutants" storyline as well

I loved all the characters being used. Sunspot, Boom-Boom, Husk, Toad, Random, Cyclops, Gentle, Rogue, X-Force. Everyone was involved it all made sense. And I'm really excited for the next X-Men:Legacy issue. For the first time, I'm really excited to have Magneto back in the game. And Legion! How cool was that??? Maybe someone can finally develop this character into more than Professor X's psycho powerful son

its kind of a shock, considering how bland Uncanny 525 was

Like most people, I loved how they used Cypher. More than that, I loved how calm and calculating he seemed in this issue. This is how he should be used and I can see him becoming more of a major player in the X-universe.

X-Men Legacy #237 - Second Coming: Chapter 12


I... I... I just can't take Greg Land's "art" anymore. I CAN'T!!


Story-wise: Meh. I really really don't care about this story anymore.

274 Re: X-Men: Second Coming on Fri Jun 25, 2010 12:13 pm

Legacy 237 was not as good as the prior NM issue...but i'm still intrigued to see how this storyline ends.

Bastion has his mounted Archangel wings, looking crazy as hell...and for those who remember this goes way way back to New X-Men #20 when Kyle & Yost had Stryker kill of Icarus for his wings

This x-over was way too long. A lot of the action probably could have been condensed but I do like what they are doing with this Hope character. Just when you think its going to go one way, they switch it up, and now I'm not sure where they're taking her...hopefully somewhere exciting and different. But that, is good writing in my opinion

Agreed. I wish they'd put Fraction and Land on one book so I wouldn't have to suffer either one of them.

I liked this issue from a writing stand point though.

I can't help but feel that maybe this story has been spread out over too many issues. I can miss two issues of it (Uncanny and New Mutants) every month and it doesn't feel like I really miss anything.
