I made a thread last week about how Cyclops is now the most interesting character in superhero comics, and this issue confirmed it, he’s just fascinating to me, in how much he’s changed, and how conflicted he is inside. This was a good send off to the first volume of Uncanny, and has me very excited for the new books. I loved the interaction between Scott and Iceman, I’ve often felt Bobby Drake has been underserved by most X-writers, so it’s great that he’s back in the forefront. Plus, as he said, he’s one of the Beatles. I must say that Hank was kind of a dick to Scott, I was on his side before, but there’s no need for the big blue dude to be such a douche. I was a bit confused by the stuff with Mister Sinister, why was he narrating about the X-Men’s history? Why did he kill himself for no real reason? I suppose this will all be explained in the new book, and at least we got to see a Summers family tree, but still… odd. Greg Land’s art is controversial we know, but he did a good job here, the double-page spread of X-History was wonderful, and I think his photo-realistic style really got across Scott’s half-smile at getting hit with a snowball.
