Uncanny X-Men #17 (No, not that Nimrod Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Aug 25, 2012 10:07 am

The final chapter of the Mister Sinister story, and it was full of great moments as pretty much every member of the team got a chance to shine. Psylocke kicked ass because she’s a bloody ninja, Magneto flirted with Storm and Emma Frost made fun of Sinister’s accent. All good stuff, and I feel that this arc has showcased the best of what Kieron Gillen can do when it comes to dialogue, there’s been some classic exchanges. The artwork was a bit of a mish-mash though, Acuna does some pages, and Mike Del Mundo does others. I’m not sure how I feel about Del Mundo’s art, some panels looked fantastic, and some others looked really strange. But he has a unique style, and that’s always something to build on. The issue ends with Sinister getting burned to a crisp by the Phoenix, and Cyclops ominously declaring the Earth as belonging to the X-Men. Oh Scott, don’t say things like that, it’ll only fuel the internet hate brigade! I did feel a bit like this issue dropped the ball on exploring the rift between the Phoenix 5 and the rest of the team, but hopefully that won’t be forgotten, as it’s very interesting, well, it’s interesting to me at least.

Shouldn't Psylocke be a Brit-kabob now ?

But that's why I've enjoyed this "event". Cyclops' slide to the dark side has actually been written very well.
"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Good-bye.."
