I borrowed X-Men: Second Coming Revelations from the library thinking it was the follow up of X-Men: Second Coming Revelations and it would shed more life on Hope's story-arc, but reading it, it felt more like watching deleted scenes on a DVD/Blu-ray disc. For some reason deleted scenes feel like a good idea to watch, but afterwards, all I can think is, "Oh okay...That's why they cut that from the show..."

There are four stories in the book that are perhaps loosely related to what is going on in

Overall: painfully obvious tie-in filler. Tries hard to fill in detail, character which wouldn't fit the fast-paced mainline story. Marginally succeeds... In boring me.

If the writing was top-notch, or the art blew me away, I'd say this book is worth reading. (under no circumstances except if you're and OCD completionist is this worth paying money for.). Yost's Hellbound storyline was the worst filler: of course Pixie would have a moment of testing her ethics, and of course it would resolve with

Mostly back-up stories from the main event. The Science Team story was a solid one-off. Hellbound, following the rescue mission for Illyana, has way too many old plotlines being brought together and art that's so muddled that it hides the action. X-Factor is quite good, although if you haven't been reading that book, I can't imagine this will make much sense. Overall, solid, but inessential.
I'm still continuing my great x-read of 2017/2018 and I am WAY behind on reviews due to a move and limited down time. I will be updating everything I have read in the meantime with tiny (or nonexistent) reviews so I can catch up again...

This is pretty good, but definitely peripheral to the main event. Some stories here are quite good, some feel a bit phoned in.

I wasn't surprised how underwhelmed I was by this set of tie ins. X-Men:Hope is rather short and really doesn't give you much more then a few interactions with Hope and Cable.They were good but much more could have been done.X-Club had some good character interactions but unfortunately the story goes nowhere at all.My least favorite of all was X-Men:Hellbound which is a perfect example of why I rarely pick X titles anymore.The story goes nowhere and it centers around rescuing Magick (How will sh ...more

Second-string tie-ins to a crossover which wasn't that great in the first place - although sometimes it's precisely in such margins that the good stuff can breathe. So here, to some extent: Steve Dillon really makes the Cable/Hope character piece with his customarily excellent art. Similarly, the Science Team story may have no importance whatsoever to wider events, but reminds us that Si Spurrier is the only writer ever to rival Kieron Gillen when it comes to scripting insane science bastard Dr ...more
An odd collection of different stories that are tied together by the theme of Hope returning to the current time line. The first short story is about Hope and Cable right before they head back to the current time line. The art was good, the story was a little bland.

The second story was Hellbound. This takes place during the events of X-Men: Second Coming. It about the team that went to limbo to recuse Magik. This follows Cannonball and his team as they fight there way through Limbo. It's much be

A fairly hefty collection of side stories taking place during Second Coming. I enjoyed this collection a lot, but mostly because several of my favorite characters - Pixie, Gambit and Northstar - all make appearances. I suggest this volume mostly for people who loved Second Coming and want more. If you're not up on recent X-Men events (for example, fans of X-Men who have only seen the movies), I would not suggest this collection, as it will probably be confusing.

Blind Science is a fun little rom
These are the side stories/tie-ins for Second Coming. So they aren't the most connected, but I enjoyed them all individually.

The X-Club is slowly becoming one of my favorite features of the X-Books.

The Magik story is a little underwhelming, but still fun if you're a fan of the New Mutants or New X-Men. The Gambit is Death could use a little explaining for those of us who haven't been following the character but it's still easy enough to follow.

X-Factor. This is the least tie-in and more we cont

Not a straightforward sequel to X-men: Second Coming, but an accompaniment, to elaborate and expand further on the events of Second Coming.

It's all right. Not a great read, but it's worth picking up for a flip through for the first story regarding X-Club's expedition to the oil rig. What you see in SEcond Coming is not what really happened... funny, fast, and furiously clever, with hilarious and pulpy Dr Nemesis leading the charge.

"Hope" had some cute Cable/Hope moments but was kinda pointless.
"Blind Science" was boring and confusing by turns, but had interesting protagonists that aren't around much in X-Men.
"Hellbound" was a classic quest/rescue story.
The "X-Factor" issues were a little confusing because they're plucked out of the huge complex story-arc that is X-Factor, and they only marginally had to do with Second Coming. But X-Factor is awesome so that's all right.

Ok so it's not the best book but it's a great book about some less known heroes. The hope story was the worst especially the art, it's almost insulting comparing it to other modern day graphic artists. The rest of the stories are good, I liked the dr. Nemesis slapstick, I like the cannonball leader story and the X factor story was a good read too just not the best. If the hope story was better it world of gotten 4 stars

These side stories from the X-men: Second Coming plot were good, but because I haven't read X-men in SOOOO long, I sometimes had no idea who some of the characters were. Some characters have changed so much since I've last read them, that I don't know if I like them anymore. These stories delt more with character development and interaction so since I didn't like most of them I didn't care about the plots so much. Not bad, but more for X-fans.

Very much a side issue to the main story, which was satisfying. It seems like the better the event book, the worse the side issues, although house of m had a few good side books in a good event. This stuff had so little to do with second coming it was a joke, although on its own it would have been some ok 6 out of 10 stuff
Eh, a little bit of a let down after reading the first Second Coming. More like some short stories that happened to be going on during Second Coming. Sort of helped to paint a more complete picture of things that were happening. Dealt with some less main-stream characters, like X-Team and others. Sort of interesting, but not super engrossing.

Finally Marvel got it right. Instead of bogging down a strong story arch with filler and lesser quality side-stories, they published two separate books, SECOND COMING and this one SECOND COMING REVELATIONS. Since we knew this was more peripheral to the main story we did not expect as much, and thus we enjoyed it more. Ended with some always hilarious X-FACTOR stuff!

The additional stories were good, but not great. I expected to enjoy the Hellbound stories more, but was a bit disappointed. Didn't really understand the X-Factor story at the end of the collection. I understand why it was included, but am unfamiliar with the developments taking place within that book.

I enjoyed this well enough. Unfortunately, the way these are grouped, I feel like I missed a good portion of the storyline between each volume. I understood it enough, however, and the story is still fascinating. I'll probably want to continue with the series sometime down the line.

The side story arcs within the X-verses third arc of the Messiah trilogy are collected here. See what these mutants were up to when the fate of mutant kind was at stake. These stories are ok on their own but work much better when read with the Second Coming book.
I like this X-Club concept. Must look into them in depth... Dr. Nemesis in particular made me laugh and reminded me of Deadpool slightly:

"So help me, redneck--if we die here I will see to it that your terminal consideration is the boot in your colon. Try! More! Stuff!"

Waste of time compared to the main story. If I had known, I wouldn't have bothered.

Too many weird characters nowadays. If you aren't already up what's going on with the current X-Men, this won't help.

I've read the issues of X-Factor in this. At some point might catch up with the rest.

This is a collection of interesting stories that support the X-Men Second Coming story, with lots of development of characters that could not be done in the main story without weakening the whole.

This follows xfactor,the x club and the new mutants on their journey to limbo. So you wondered what had happened then this answers your questions. A decent tie-in with its own storyline. A good read.
