Humberto Ramos's art is ruining the X-Men, though Mike Carey's story isn't helping. This volume is a five-issue long prelude to Messiah Complex. Rogue's team of Cannonball, Mystique, Iceman, Omega Sentinel, and Lady Mastermind falls apart by the end of the first issue when the Marauders (best known for showing up in Mutant Massacre, a crossover from 1986. The New X-Men and the Astonishing X-Men show up, but the Marauders keep beating up all of them. Why? So that they, like the readers, have no...more

Guess now I can finally read Messiah Complex.
Mike Carey is challenged to help get the X-Men ready for the upcoming Second Coming story arc. To that end, he is asked to close down Rogue's oddball team of X-Men with this volume. The team is already battered and beaten, having lost Sabretooth and left Cable on Providence Island. What should be a little downtime turns into the perfect time for an ambush by the Marauders! Cable is attacked by Gambit and Sunfire, while Mystique and Lady Mastermind turn on their X-teammates; even Karima Shapandar...more

Este tomo está bastante mejor que su contemporáneo de Uncanny X-Men, pero sigue teniendo varias pifiadas que me hacen promediarlo para abajo. Reseña más o menos justificada de ambos tomos, acá.

Humberto Ramos is probably the worst artist that ever worked on X-men. His art is ugly and I always have problems recognizing the characters in his panels. Otherwise an interesting story and good build-up before Messiah Complex crossover.

Mostly a tease for Messiah Complex, but there's nice characterization, a nice conclusion to the SuperNovas team, and overall a good setup for what is to come.
Rogue is in trouble and the maruders are after Destiny's diaries. A decent plot with many twists and turns. Artwork is decent too.
Great art by Bachalo and looks like something big is coming for the X-men. I just hope Bachalo stays on board.
