Synopsis: Red Skull is using his new powers to incite violence against mutants across the globe!
Good: I’m actually really liking the story for in this issue. It’s a really good idea, Red Skull *****SPOILERS#***** digging up Charles Xavier’s body and using his mind to access to his telepathic powers to cause chaos, in order to turn the human population against Mutants. *****SPOILERS END***** I’d probably have to say it’s one of my favourite story lines going on in comic books right now. Another part I really enjoyed was the narration. It really added more to the chaos and gave background information to the random mutants who were killed or attacked in the riots causing me to care about them.
Alex Summers seems to be adjusting to his role as a leader as well, despite watching him try to keep calm while his fellow mutants are being attacked and killed. Personally, I think he’s a great leader for the team and he’s a good fit for the role.
Another great moment in this issue was when Wolverine found out how Red Skull is controlling everyone… when Wolverine goes rabid, it means that things are about to great real interesting!
Bad: When it comes to the art I’m not really sure how I feel –let’s talk about colours. The palette fits with the tone of the book, but I have some issues with it. One example is Havok’s costume. It’s too dark and I wish it was a little lighter. As it is right now, it looks like someone just filled in his costume with a black permanent marker. Additionally, I think Wolverine’s costume should have been a brighter yellow. Other than these two points everything else is just, okay. I couldn’t really find much to complain about in this book which is a good thing, just not a big fan of some of the colouring in this book.
Overall: Overall I definitely recommend this book for the story alone. The art –colouring to be more specific, could use some fixing up but besides that I definitely enjoyed this book.
