After a surprisingly good first volume, this was a letdown. I don't think that McKeever is quite the writer that Vaughan is, a faint criticism that accurately describes well over half of all professional comics writers. This volume ended up being just barely better than ok. I'm assuming that this is the way that Vaughan wanted the storyline to shake out, but it feels rushed in places (was the book canceled?) and the execution is lacking. I wish Vaughan had finishes the series instead.

It is very easy to differentiate the time periods of X-men books. Is it Post- Morrison's New X-men? Is it before Decimation? is it After Schism? Avengers Versus X-men. Usually Cyclop's costume is a good indicator of where you are.

Mystique, though featured heavily in certain, recent time periods- for example, the Messiah Complex Time period and All New X-men, is a character featured infrequently enough that her motivations are not necessarily written in stone. She goes back and forth, actively t

Unfortunately, Mckeever doesn't fare any better than Vaughn did in the first volume. You eventually get payoff to the plotlines Vaughn started, but it's pretty cliche-ridden. Not wanting to have any spoilers revealed, let's just say that the "big reveal" is only moderately satisfying and can be easily guessed by the self-contained nature of this series (the cast never expands, which makes it obvious which of the existing characters it is). There's an interesting twist in the reveal, but nothing ...more

I'm really tempted to go with a 4/5 for this book, but enjoying it is very based on your knowledge of the first volume, and the first volume is pretty uninspired. Anyway, McKeever brings Vaughan's lackluster setup to quiet a nice fruition--the big reveal, the plotting of the finale, and the resolution are all solid and well-handled (though nothing mind-blowing). Overall, McKeever really redeemed the series from being a total waste of time. If you've already read through the first volume, make ...more

Although some story elements from the initial volume (by Brian K. Vaughan) get picked up and explained, it's not really that much satisfying.
Both art and plot get worse as the series comes to its conclusion. And again one may get the feeling this series could have been much better. (Wasted potential.)
The second part of the short lived Mystique comic series is not that bad, but not that special either.

A decent ending to a fun series. I enjoyed the first volume more, Brian K. Vaughan had a better grasp on making an entertaining spy story. Still, McKeever does a decent job sending Mystique off. The ending issues, especially with Wolverine and Rogue, are big and Mystique, for all the good she does, is still a villain. A better series than I expected.

I personally liked the 1st collection better, it kinda dragged around the middle issues, which is a shame since it seemed like this collection was supposed the one that tied up the series yknow what I mean

This was a good ending, but I wish there wasn't so much unnecessary cleavage.
