    The first half of this book was the inevitable Secret Empire tie in The second half dealt with the terrible results of Hank s dabbling with sorcery Neither was great to be honest I ve given this three stars but I m rounding up from two and a half I m hoping for from the next volume.

    The first half of the book is a Secret Empire crossover Mutants have their own fascist state now in California It s never fully explained why so many X Men are acting out of character Secondary mutations are reintroduced Wolfbane s is really dumb She now has razor claws and can turn into a entire pack of wolves which makes no sense My frustration with these crossovers is there s never enough explained to know what s going on unless you ve read the main title and sometimes additional miniseries And then the next issue, it s like it never happened.In the second half of the book, Hank s flirtation with magic bites him in the ass The no personality Goblin Queen returns with her supernatural minion versions of the X Men Meanwhile Jimmy and Angel investigate Jimmy s origins and we get some lead in to the mothervine story line that I presume will be happening in the...

    A collection of two stories.The first is set during Secret Empire and it focuses on the Original 5 resisting the fascist state of Tian It bounces off of a big company crossover in the best way, by using it as the background to tell its own story And, it s a successful one Bunn offers a great look at where Emma Frost is now, continues on with character threads from his Magneto comic, and generally produces an exciting and interesting arc 4 5 The second sadly reverts to the same pablum we ve been getting from the X office ever since Secret Wars We get on the Goblin Queen, an entirely two dimensional villain, and the long fights just don t add up to much The only saving grace of this arc is the completion of a very annoying young Beast story that s been running for a while 3 5.Meaning that in the end, volume 2 ends up with about 3.5 stars, w...

    I m a big fan of Cullen Bunn He excels at telling horror stories set in rural southern settings His X Men At best it s a meh Now many things have changed since I last ran into the X Men Captain America is a Hydra agent sighs How fucking stupid is that and Magneto is in a state of detente with the Hydra America Meanwhile, the X men the original young versions fight Emma Frost For some reason Beast is now a mage, a few older X men Nightcrawler, Storm, etc are some weird vampire things in the service of the Goblin Queen Maddie Pryor who is summoning her sisters to do evil shit UmmmStorm changes sides she s still a mutant vampire thing and joins the X men Oh yeah there s a Wolverine knock off and it s not the chick knock off X 53 X 23 some stupid shit like that and is apparently Logan s son Ok then Hey comic writers taking old characters ...

    Auch wenn das Team Blue die urspr nglichen f nf X Men sind, ist trotzdem alles ganz anders und das Team an sich ist kaum wiederzuerkennen Hinzu kommt, dass im MCU keine geradlinigen Stories mehr erz hlt werden Ohne Br che im Raum Zeitkontinuum und Multiversen l uft fast gar nichts mehr, und in jede Story spielen die Ereignisse der letzten Jahrzehnte hinein Das wirkt zwar sehr komplex, aber eine handwerklic...

    Read as single issues Secret Empire rocks the X Men because no one is safe from Marvel s event tidal wave , and then Beast s magical exploits come back to bite him in the ass, bringing the Goblyn Queen into the action too They aren t kidding about that we hope you survive the experience thing, are they X Men Blue remains the stronger of the two X books in this second volume The character dynamics are much interesting and explored much better than in Gold, and not just because the team was already closely knit to start with Following up on Beast s magical experiments feeds directly from the last All New X Men series, and even Secret Empire manages not to be a total turd as it brings some fan favourite characters back into the fold to help the X Men save themselves plus Emma Frost, who should be in all the X books all the time.The art is where Blue tends to fall down a little compared to the other title Corey Smith takes the Secret Empire issues, and they re not as polished as his work has been previously I feel like he was rushing to meet Blu...

    Ok so I just read this and I already want to jump right back in So happy that this volume of X Men blue found its voice and really hit its stride This follows on from volume 1 but obviously in the time period of writing, there was a WHOLE lot going on in the marvel universe so we do get a little backstory at the start Hydra has taken over and there are some mutant camps that the mutant leaders have negotiated for Yes it s all well and good in Utopia where humans and mutants live well together, but anyone who doesn t agree with the regime is leashed and power dampened This is where we pick up with the original x men freeing a camp of these mutants and really, the pace NEVER lets up The homage to old characters not seen in ages is SO GOOD Seeing Toad and Wolfsbane with secondary mutations is fantastic and a great way to bring back in other forgotten characters Heck even Polaris and Madeline Pryor make an appearance LOVE IT It s a really fun romp fro...

    Creo que no me confund con el buen argumento que est tomando la serie En la primera parte nos muestra un enfrentamiento de los X Men j venes contra Nueva Tian, especie de estado fascista mutante dirigido por Emma Frost y algunos miembros del Club del Fuego Infernal Como resultado de ste se da un hecho muy curioso que Jean y Scot...
