When Cyclops and Wolverine finally came to blows, it was just epic, a fight for the ages, especially when drawn by Alan Davis, who is an absolute legend, and he and Aaron choreographed the fight so well. I think what makes this event really work is that in essence, both Wolverine and Cyclops have a point. Scott is being realistic, but very cold-hearted, whereas Logan is acting out of kindness, but showing a surprising amount of naïveté. I love seeing how different people are taking each side online, it shows how good Jason Aaron is as a writer that the fandom is so split itself. I myself haven’t really picked a side, but know for sure that I’m going to picking up both Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine & The X-Men come the end of this event. This is Event Comics they should be done, and just a fantastic comic, I can’t wait for the final chapter.
Aaron did a great job letting the pictures do the talking. The part where Scott fires at the Sentinel only for it to appear again through the fog was straight out of a movie. It made the Sentinel a very real and scary threat.
This is my favorite event right now and I look forward to the battle in the next issue of which the preview pages look amazing.
Aaron is currently the best writer in comics and Davis, who is always great, picked up his game even more for this one.
