This was probably my least favourite issue of the new UXM so far, it wasn’t bad really, but the attitudes of the ‘Good Apex’ and the ‘Bad Apex’ just got on my tits, I didn’t care about their relationship and conflict and I felt that the actual X-Men got short shrift here so that Gillen could wax lyrical about poems made of butterflies or whatever. Most of the team didn’t even show up in this issue for Professor X’s sake! I did find it quite clever that the story isn’t over even though the ‘Bad Apex’ has been defeated, that was good. I hope next issue is good to make up for this one. I think the real reason people seem to prefer W&XM over this one isn’t because that book has the supposedly ‘cooler’ characters, but that Aaron has really kept the focus on his protagonists and their setting and motives, whereas Gillen has focussed on the villains, whether Sinister or that Phalanx or now the Apex, and it means the book feels detached.

maybe, I don't really know for sure

all I know is that pf all 7 issues the only one I liked was the Phalanx one-off and I have fun reading W&XM whereas this book feels like work just to get through.

Land doesn't help either - when a story feels as emotionally detached as this one does it does no one any good to have art just as stiff

That synopsis or review or whatever sounded like the shittiest comic ever.

It's hard to believe that there's one more issue left to finish this story

but the attitudes of the ‘Good Apex’ and the ‘Bad Apex’ just got on my tits,


Should I be reading this book as a comedy? :groucho: This was some of the worst dialogue I've ever read in a comic. :smt013

With W&XM, I'm laughing with the characters. With UXM, I'm laughing at the characters.
