Ultimate X-Men #12 (He is here Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri May 25, 2012 1:42 pm

Nick Spencer’s run on Ultimate X-Men comes to an end, and although this was a fine issue in and of itself, I’m still kind of let down by Spencer’s run as a whole, it was much too slow and unfocussed and he probably tried to do too much. Not only did he have the X-Men team living underground, but he also had Quicksilver running around, and Storm in the camps, and more, he was playing the long game but in the end he ran out of time. This issue did however tie-some of it together, and set up Wood’s run to hopefully be a bit more focussed. The focus here is mainly on Havok, who is in a mental institute, and his visit/kidnap from Mister Sinister, who takes him to some secret lab. It seems that the events of the last 12 issues have been manipulated by Sinister and Apocalypse, they are the ones behind the visions of Magneto, Professor X, Scarlet Witch and now Cyclops that have been haunting various characters. If Wood’s run is a massive fight between the X-Men and Apocalypse, that will be awesome. So in the end, this run was a disappointment, I think Spencer bit off more than he could chew, but the reveal at the end did put a nice bow on things, and should hopefully mean Wood’s run is an improvement. Here’s hoping. Oh yeah, and Ultimate Layla Miller showed up! It seems as if she knows stuff.

Are you sure this was his last issue? It felt like there was one more issue to go.

Good, maybe HE can write the next fucking volume of Battle Pope, since Kirkman likely never will... :evil:

Ok. That just didnt feel like an ending for a writers run. It just felt like there was one more issue left.
