Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. There were actually three different artists on this book.  They did a great job of matching up artists with the three different settings (present, future, and Legion’s mind).

  2. Thanks Mr. Stone for pointing out an error. This review will be edited.

  3. No worries.  Totally not your fault, as I’m pretty sure they only mentioned Roberson in the solicits.

    I’m in total agreement with your review, though.  This issue was one of the best, so far, in the crossover.

  4. Honestly I was really close into giving the story a 5. The reason I gave it a 4 is only because this story felt like it would have been told in a Uncanny X-Men or a X-Men Legacy issue not a New Mutants book. Yes Legion took the spotlight and a few members of the New Mutants crew took part in the battle (Sunspot & Magma), but the other New Mutant members did not receive any sort of treatment in the storyline.

  5. I loved this issues. "I don’t know old man. I’m starting to worry about the other one" Awesome. I don’t know if you notice this. But the helicopter Xavier used to drop of Legion had a few missiles and an impressive firing gun. I say let’s use those to shoot down some Nimrods. Great issue loved the art. Loved the rallying that is going on despite the fact it’s coming to an end. You know what’s great. This event is longer then Blackest Night but it doesn’t feel long. I read Blackest night from begging to end in one sitting. It dragged. I just got down reading Second Coming from the 1st to this one. Never lost a beat. 

  6. @xmanryan: To be fair, most of the New Mutants crew are busy in the Hellbound book with…ugh…Pixie and….also ugh…Gambpocalypse.

  7. Extra points for naming all the mutants. I got a good 85% of them, but it didn’t seem worth tracking them all down. The Sentinels were just going to kill them in a second anyway.
