I get it now. This is just going to be a slow burn for 20 issues and then it will be time for some X-titled event. Nothing happens again. Talk talk talk with some pretend fighting in between. The emperor has nothing to say and no real tale to tell. Bored to tears and leaping off.

Story: 2 - Average
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. That’s why I bailed after 5 issues. Everybody’s singing this series’ praises, but it did nothing for me. I didn’t even hate it, I just nothing-ed it. And I like Bendis, but his team work is just too slow.

  2. The parts with Mystique haven’t raised any eyebrows? There was action right there, and I’m wondering what exactly she’s up to. You’re right, this series is rolled pretty tight, but the action and drama are there and the train is picking up speed. You’re not at all interested to see where the ending of this issue takes the story? I just raise these points because your review seemed very cynical. We are still learning what this series is about, so its unfair to say there is no story to tell. Let the cherry get nice and hot, I think it’ll hit just fine. Thing is I think its a fatty so it might take awhile…slow burn.
