Possibly the most generic superhero comic I've ever read, and that's saying something.
This trade contains X-Men (2011) issues #20-23 and X-Men (1963) #14.

I haven't read much X-Men related comics since Whedon's run on Astonishing. War Machines caught my eye and featured an interesting group - the back cover text described Storm leading a team of "Utopia's most powerful mutants - Warpath, Psylocke, Colossus and Jubilee." Wait, Jubilee?! Ok, between comments like that and what I've heard about the recent Cyclops/Wolverine split obviously I'd missed a lot of changes. Since this trade...more

This book contains two stories related to robotic enemies / foes.

I found this book quite entertaining with the story from 1963 be the better of the two.
This volume contains enough entertainment in a story about Storm led X-Men team against another party who use perennial enemy the Sentinels. There is little in the way of character development or great emotional impact. Rather, readers will get set pieces of action with most characters getting their moment to blast, thump or shoot as appropriate and solid art. This is not a bad thing in itself, but readers should go into it knowing that this is by no means a deep volume and it may take something...more

Public library copy.

(To be read on vacation.)

I don't keep up with mutant titles obviously because this book was a library copy, but this was an all right read. I thought the artist was really good and even better than the story served. I hope the artist gets a chance to work on a title of wider recognition rather than a non-A-list mutant character title.

I think this may be Gischler’s best volume of the series. Yeah, it’s shallow as all heck and has no long-lasting effects; the characterization of War Machine is also non-existent. But it’s a fun bit of action with some nice continuity via the Sentinels. I also think the team gels better post-Schism, where it was kind of random beforehand.
I loved the story, but it was short and I wished there was more included.

3.5*. You know what I really like about this series? The fact that you don't have to read any others (yet) to enjoy it or get the full story. No cross-overs (yet), no need to read other series or Event mini-series. Just good, action-packed mutant fun.
An average X-Men story. I wish Sentinels were still scary in the comics, but they're not. They're just purple cannon fodder these days. I liked the team setup, but not a lot of characterization.

Surprisingly good seems to be the watch-word for Gischler's X-Men. A solid, if unremarkable, adventure that has some good battle scenes if a fairly cliched plotline. Not bad, but not great either.
X-Men volume 3 has never been a good series and after Regenesis it's equally bad as Uncanny X-Men. Piece of crap. At least there's still Peter David and maybe Mike Carey...
This was an ok read for something borrowed from the library.

The art was on the strong side

and the writing was on the mediocre side.

I'm just sayin'.

a cool story after Schism event I liked it.

The art is great, but the story is just so-so. It was a fun, quick read, even if the plot wasn't exactly memorable.
