This fourth and final volume collects issues #19–26 of Peter Milligan and Mike Allred's oddball superhero series X-Statix (with Nick Dragotta doing the art chores on issue #20).

The volume opens with a two-parter, in which Vivisector plays the main part, and the moves into the main course: the five-parter title story, in which Vivisector, Venus Dee Milo, the Anarchist, Dead Girl, Mr Sensitive and Doop have to go up against the Avengers (Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Ant-Man, Scarlet Witch and

Just loved it. Although there would be different nuances, this is what justice league vs. doom patrol could look like. I think it's great how boring the avengers look and how their neuroses are put on a level with the x-statix neuroses. The scenes where the straight-laced conventional cap vs. the counter-cultural but seemingly ineffectual (& sweaty) anarchist, and the homoerotic betrayals of hawkeye and the viviscetor's battles are the highlights of search for doop's brain.

Overall, I felt like this was the volume that proved that X-Statix had overstayed its welcome, but it was still worth reading.

The Cure (19-20). A very nice character piece on Myles, at times touching and funny and revealing more about him than we've seen in the whole series [7+/10].

Avengers vs. X-Statix (21-25). I've never been thrilled with this penultimate X-Statix tale. It tries to be clever by playing with an old trope of super-team teamups, but for the most part it's a dull fight. The Iron

Impresionante. Un final despiadado y patético para una serie que logró que le tomara cariño a una patota de personajes despiadados y patéticos, pero siempre genialmente desarrollados por Milligan y representados por los Allred.
Lo mejor: la pelea de caricias entre Mr. Sensitive y Iron Man.
Lo peor: que ya me habían espoileado el abrupto final y eso me hizo disfrutarlo menos; que alguna de las muertes terminan siendo tan intrascendentes que ni nos las muestran; y que si bien la serie mantiene un ni

Vážně už je konec? Vážně?

X-Statix/X-Force mi bude setsakra chybět, tohle byla jedna z nejlepších superhrdinských sérií co jsem četl. Zatímco celou dobu přinášela nový pohled na superhrdinský žánr, v posledním booku bohužel spadla to "klasiky" (sice dobře napsané, ale člověk čeká něco víc). Takže tu nejprve máme příběh, kdy Vivisector najde lék na svoji mutaci, a pak si to X-Statix několik sešitů rozdává s Avengers. Ti tu sice jsou občas prezentovaní jako ti špatní, ale k ničemu radikálnějšímu n

Still a good series, but it had grown low on the freshness that made this series such a blast in the beginning. The Iron Man vs. Mr. Sensitive vs. a bunch of naked people issue, though, is hilarious.

Three stars.

The Avengers stuff was not the best, and while the last issue was pretty great (art particularly), the whole collection seemed like an out-of-directions end
The best and most hilarious fight scene is in this chapter. (Iron Man vs. Mr. Sensitive) I would highly recommend this book mainly for that reason alone.

¡¡Lo que todo el mundo esperaba!!
La pelea definitiva entre los famosos Vengadores y los infames X-Statix, en un festival de patetismo, rencores y las muertes más injustificadas del cosmos mutante.

Great way to end the series with a little team-up/fight with the Avengers. It's a treat to see Allred illustrate the classic Avengers.

Same assessment as for the first volume of X-Force. This one was fun if only to see a lighter take on the Avengers. I especially enjoyed the "fight" between Mr. Sensitive vs. Iron Man.
