Uncanny X-Men #4 (Adapt to this Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Jan 07, 2012 9:15 am

That was quick! Issue 3 only came out last week and now this, Team Cyclops you are spoiling us! I did like how this issue picked up on the events of the first arc in a tangential way, with the Phalanx threat coming into being from Sinister being defeated and chucking him away, but I feel that perhaps too much focus was given to the Phalanx and not enough on the actual X-Men, who only showed up in the last few pages to smash it up. It was good to get a unique alien perspective, and Gillen got across the horror aspect of the Phalanx assimilating a whole town very well, but I feel that in the early issues of a book, more attention should be paid to the protagonists than the antagonists, even with characters as well known as the X-Men. They are in a new world, and we need to see how they are reacting and changing. The only X-Man we got any insight on this issue was Colossus really, and I want more on what’s going on in Cyclops’ head. Interestingly, Emma Frost was not present, I guess she really has lost her arm. Brandon Peterson’s art was very strong, like I said about last week’s issue of Ultimates, I’m glad he’s back to his something more like his old style.
